Greenland is an autonomous country of the Kingdom of Denmark northeast of the Canadian Atlantic provinces between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. President Donald Trump wants to buy it, according to multiple sources.

It all started with coverage of an appearance by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham on Fox News denigrating the four Congresswomen President Donald Trump recently targeted with racist tweets. From there, physician and former Vermont Governor and DNC Chair Howard Dean asked what happened to the South Carolina GOP Senator who was once a vocal Trump critic but is now one of his most vocal cheerleaders.

Neuroscientist, psychologist and Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine, Dr. Seth Norrholm aka @SethN12, provided an answer.

President Donald Trump made a series of remarks ranging from false to incoherent throughout the day on Tuesday while meeting with NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg and later at a dinner for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).

Longtime Trump critic and husband to Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway, attorney George Conway made sure to let the public know about each one. Conway has speculated on Trump's mental fitness before and revived those speculations again, retweeting news of the President's latest remarks as evidence.

George Conway III is an attorney who once participated in Ken Starr's investigation and the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. He once was on the short list for Attorney General in the Trump administration thanks to his wife Kellyanne's relationship with President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.

More bad news for firefighters and their supporters.

As if increased cancer risk, throttled internet service and lack of benefits for prisoners on the front lines of this summer’s California wildfires weren’t devastating enough, a recent study has found that more firefighters are committing suicide than dying in the line of duty.

Imagine feeling so thirsty and hungry that your entire survival depends on quenching it. Now imagine that same mighty thirst for drugs and alcohol. An urge so powerful it tells you that you will die without them. That is just a small glimpse of what it is like to be an addict.

America is currently in the midst of a devastating opioid epidemic. In 2016 alone, 64,000 Americans died from a drug overdose, which is more than the number of casualties from the Iraq and Vietnam wars combined. Unfortunately, addiction is heavily stigmatized and misunderstood, and many people believe that the disease is the result of a choice, a moral failing or lack of willpower.
