Fun with Game of Thrones and medieval history:
The world of HBO's "Game of Thrones" and the novels the show is based on is inspired by medieval Europe. Historians say that author George R. R. Martin's gritty realism gets some things right, and exaggerates others.

Another myth - Suicide is inevitable. I'll be following this up in the next couple of days with an article about current research on suicide prevention and treatment. Some programs get suicide rates down to zero.
Contrary to popular myth, suicides are most common not in the dead of winter, but in the warmth of spring. Researchers theorize that increased sociality or even inflammation from allergens plays a role in this spring peak.

A personal genetics test story that just gets more jaw-dropping as it goes on. This family sounds like an amazing bunch, handling it the way they have.
