This is an important thread. If your teen is struggling in most any area of her life, look at sleep. She’s definitely not getting enough.
🧵“No group has ever slept as little as the modern adolescent,” Heather Turgeon & Julie Wright @thehappysleeper write @PostOpinions. Meanwhile, “studies connecting sleep loss and poor mental health fill stacks of scientific journals.” washingtonpost.com/opinions/…

All of this too.
The speed with which this far-right talking point - straight-up Nazi stuff - has been popularized, normalized, and, crucially, moved towards the mainstream of conservative politics is just breathtaking. And so, so very dangerous.

All of this. 🧵
It's the guns, but it's not just the guns. It's the racism, but it's not just the racism. It's the misogyny, but it's not just the misogyny. It's the attacks on democracy but it's not just the attacks on democracy.

Kalush Orchestra showed a video for the song Stefania, shot in Bucha, Irpin, Hostomel and Borodyanka, destroyed by the Russian army. They didn't want to publish it before #Eurovision not to get accused of politicizing the contest. The video ends with a call: Stand with #Ukraine!

⚡️Zelensky in his WWII victory day speech: 'We won then. We will win now.' “We will never forget what our ancestors did in World War II, which killed more than eight million Ukrainians,” said President Zelensky. “Very soon, there will be two Victory Days in Ukraine,” he added.

Zelensky stakes Ukraine’s own claim to Soviet victory day, with a characteristically powerful and well delivered speech. Reclaiming May 9 instead of viewing it as irrevocably contaminated. Quite bold
