• As you repeat this selection process, you increase your sensitivity to joy.
  • When something sparks joy, you should feel a little thrill, as if the cells in your body are slowly rising. When you hold something that doesn't bring you joy, you will notice that your body feels heavier.
  • And when you discard anything, don't forget to thank it before saying goodbye
  • Tidying is the act of confronting yourself; cleaning is the act of confronting nature.
  • If it brings you joy, but you can't see yourself wearing it outside, there's no reason you shouldn't wear it inside.

Asians who immigrated to the United States as children have higher rates of suicidal ideation and suicide attempts than U.S. born Asians. Asians who came as adolescents and adults have lower rates than either of those groups.In addition, more Asian female students reported suicidal thoughts and behaviors than Asian male, White female, or White male students. In a survey of students attending high schools in Hawaii, Native Hawaiians had a significantly higher lifetime prevalence rate for suicide attempt (12.9%) than non-native Hawaiian students (9.6%).11 In another survey of Hawaiian high school students, Native Hawaiians (11.5%) and Filipinos (13.6%) had more than twice the rate of suicide attempts in the past 12 months than Caucasians (5.6%).

  • (kevin nadal) : our brown skin, slanted eyes and spanish surnames often confuse people. Sometimes, we are told (directly or indirectly) that we aren't really Asian; that our skin is too dark; or that we are among the lowest of the Asian totem pole. Because these messages are often communicated by East Asian Americans (e.g., Chinese, Japanese, or Korean Americans), many Filipino Americans report feeling more affinity with Pacific Islanders, Latinx, and Black Americans, and some build coalitions with South Asians to proclaim that Brown Asians exist.

  • The modifications created unusual handling characteristics. In essence, it was found that the aircraft had a tendency to lift its nose upwards, particularly when it was already pitched at a steep angle.

This was unhelpful, because an excessively high “angle of attack,” as it is known, can cause an aerodynamic stall - suddenly robbing the wings of lift and causing the plane to lose altitude.Boeing’s engineers developed a control system called MCAS - Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System - to ensure that the way the 737 Max behaved in the air remained consistent and matched that of previous generations of the plane.

This piece of software brings the nose of the aircraft down automatically, under very specific circumstances, without the intervention of the pilot.Investigations into both 737 Max crashes are still under ...
