New research suggests "stuck song syndrome" may be an early sign of dementia. In other words, the longer a song remains stuck in your memory, the higher your risk for dementia later on.

Cutting is quite common among young adolescents, but the phenomenon is increasing among adults as well.
Cutting is defined as the most common form of self-injury. Cutters injure themselves with sharp or blunt instruments in order to feel physical pain which masks the internal, emotional pain they are feeling inside.
Most cutters are young females and teenage boys who suffer from depression or social anxiety. The cuts are usually superficial, just deep enough to draw blood, on areas such as the face, arms, chest, or abdomen.
Our culture's current obsession with tattoos is also seen as a form of self-injury among the young. An example of a troubled celebrity who practices self-injury -- disguised as self-expression -- is singer Rihanna, who recently carved a crude cross into her neck (see photo above).
A source within singer Beyonce's camp told Sandrarose.com exclusively that the first-time mom is feeling sad and having trouble sleeping at night. The source revealed that Beyonce, 30, is having difficulty handling her duties as a mom to 7-week old daughter, Blue Ivy. "She's depressed and she's losing weight because she won't eat," said the source.
If this is true, Beyonce may be suffering from a clinical depression known as Postpartum Depression. Postpartum depression, which affects women after childbirth, can also affect women who have not given birth.
Postpartum Depression is not to be confused with the normal "baby blues" that some women feel in the weeks after childbirth, including moodiness and teariness. Postpartum Depression is more severe and the symptoms lasts longer than a few weeks.
Postpartum depression can occur when a woman feels sad, lonely and overwhelmed by a lack of support from her husband. According to my source, Beyonce thought a baby would improve her relations with Jay Z, 43, who spends a great deal of time at the studio.
