Please Dont Make These 8 Mistakes Because You Dont Like Yourself Much

Holly Riordan Updated August 9, 2019 By Sonnie Hiles 1. Don’t talk people out of loving you. Even if you don’t love yourself, you have to learn to accept other people are going to love you anyway.

Young offenders ‘set up to fail’ on their release

The report also found “inadequate” planning to protect others from the risk posed by those released. Many of the hundreds of children released each year from YOIs are categorised as having “profound” needs for support and follow-up care – but the report pointed to “systemic” weaknesses in meeting these needs. ‘Poor practice’ In one example highlighted in the report, Nawaz, a 16-year-old boy with a history of possessing offensive weapons and robbery, was released and allowed to go home to his parents with “no consideration” of the threat he might pose to his family.

Snail With Iron Shell Dubbed Sea Pangolin First To Be Threatened With Extinction From Deep-Sea Mining

The first species at risk of extinction due to deep-sea mining has now been added to the IUCN Red List of Threatened and Endangered Species.

The creature hosts a shell made of iron and lives around hydrothermal vents in the dark depths of the Indian Ocean, where searing hot water escapes from the sea floor. Its iron tags are layered like plated armor, possibly protecting it from the harpoon-like teeth and puncture-sharp claws of predators, according to the National Science Foundation.
