Headway raises $70M at a $750M valuation to help connect therapists with people and insurance schemes

Mental health, and how it is getting addressed, has been one of the major leitmotifs of the past year of pandemic living.

Today a startup called Headway, which has been working on building a better way for people to attend to themselves — by wa...

"In 1993, when I was living in New York and still fresh off the boat, 60 Minutes featured a segment on Finland, which opened with this description..."

"... of Helsinki pedestrians going about their business: 'This is not a state of national mourning in Finland, these are Finns in their natural state; brooding and private; grimly in touch with no one but themselves; the shyest people on earth. Depressed and proud of it'” As far as facial expressions of the Finnish people, not much has changed since then. We are still just as reserved and melancholy as before. If happiness were measured in smiles, Finnish people would be among the most miserable...

The birth of childhood: A brief history of the European child

It took several thousand years for our culture to realize that a child is not an object. Learning how to treat children as humans continues to this day."Nature wants children to be children before they are men," wrote Jean-Jacques Rousseau in the book Emile, or On Education (1762). While Rousseau did not see children as humans, he appealed to parents to look after their offspring. "If we consider childhood itself, is there anything so weak and wretched as a child, anything so utterly at the merc...

MD Ally connects telehealth alternatives right into 911 calls

Every day in the United States, hundreds of thousands of people will dial 911 to seek help. Some of those calls are serious and require immediate emergency attention, but the reality is that most 911 calls are of a far simpler variety: concerns about a prescription, fear over a newly-developed symptom, or a general medical question. When a 911 call taker receives that request for medical assistance, it sets into motion a series of responses. Ambulances and paramedics are sent, leading to skyrock...
