What is Suicide Prevention Month?

Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.

Equifax Suffered a Hack Almost Five Months Earlier Than the Date It Disclosed

Equifax Inc. learned about a major breach of its computer systems in March -- almost five months before the date it has publicly disclosed, according to three people familiar with the situation.

In a statement, the company said the March breach was not related to the hack that exposed the personal and financial data on 143 million U.S. consumers, but one of the people said the breaches involve the same intruders. Either way, the revelation that the 118-year-old credit-reporting agency suffered two major incidents in the span of a few months adds to a mounting crisis at the company, which is the subject of multiple investigations and announced the retirement of two of its top security executives on Friday.

Toys ‘R’ Us Seeks Bankruptcy, Crushed by Online Competition

Toys “R” Us Inc. filed for bankruptcy as the retailer, loaded with debt in a buyout more than a decade ago, failed to keep consumers from abandoning its stores for the lower prices and convenience of online shopping.

The company listed debt and assets of more than $1 billion each in Chapter 11 documents Monday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Richmond, Virginia. Prior to filing, the chain secured more than $3 billion in financing from lenders including a JPMorgan Chase & Co.-led bank syndicate and certain existing lenders to fund operations while it restructures, according to a company statement. The funding is subject to court approval.

Film Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’


Eggsy returns — and so do a couple characters you thought were dead — in this over-the-top, aggressively stylized comic-book spy sequel.

As if the original “Kingsman” weren’t cartoony enough, with its blade-legged lady assassin and gratuitous exploding-heads finale, the sequel has gone and pushed the franchise’s cheeky brand of absurdity even farther. The goofiness begins with the resurrection of two important characters, whose unequivocal deaths we witnessed in the first movie. First, there’s Charlie, a rival secret-service recruit played by Edward Holcroft, who lost his head in that notorious fireworks montage, now back with a bionic arm and a new boss (more on that in a minute). And then there’s Colin Firth’s character, impeccably dressed spy-master Harry Hart, who took a point-blank bullet to the eye — and here lives to tell about it.

Emmys 2017 Snubs and Surprises


The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Award winners have been announced, and with the names read from envelopes on stage comes a new wave of discussion. No longer are people speculating about whether or not “This Is Us” will break broadcast’s shut-out streak in the drama series race or which powerhouse limited series cast, “Big Little Lies” or “Feud” will clean up in acting awards. Now that the answers are in, attention turns to the snubs and surprises of the 2017 Emmys.

Emmys Review: Sleek, Sincere, but We’ve Still Got a Long Way to Go

TV loves nothing more than sending viewers to a different dimension. So on Sunday night, CBS’ brisk, lively Emmy ceremony opened a portal to another world. It wasn’t the real world of TV, which still has miles to go when it comes to matters of representation, diversity and inclusion, but instead a place where the industry reassured itself that it was doing the work necessary to resist the worst of the present moment. And if part of that mindset was wishful thinking, well, it was nevertheless damnably difficult to resist.

As expected, there were many references to Donald Trump (and his lack of Emmys). And though Colbert’s opening monologue had some effective jabs, and now and then there was a subversive moment, the overall tone of the ceremony was rallying and earnest. There were a few references to the fact that it might be a little to early to engage in rampant self-congratulation: Bruce Miller, showrunner of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” put it best: Everyone needs to go home and “get to work — we have a lot of things to fight for.” Indeed.

Emmy Awards: Complete Winners List

The 2017 Emmy Awards took place Sunday night, with honors handed out to television’s biggest shows.

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” ruled the Emmys, taking nine awards, one more than HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which tied for second place with eight each.

“Game of Thrones” was ineligible for awards this year, leaving the drama field open for a fresh face. Five freshman shows made their way into the drama series category: “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Stranger Things,” “This Is Us,” and “Westworld.” “Handmaid’s Tale” took home the big prize. On the comedy side, Emmy voters showed love to auteurs with nominations for shows like “Atlanta” and “Master of None.” “Veep,” however, came out on top.
