THE PROBLEM IN VETERNARIANS LIVES


Veterinarians Are Killing Themselves.

An Online Group Is There To Listen And Help

Seeing dogs all day has its perks, veterinary neurologist Carrie Jurney says. But it also has downsides, including stress, debt, long hours and facing online harassment.

Dr. Carrie Jurney is on the board of an online organization that works to prevent suicides. It’s called Not One More Vet.

This isn’t a mental health support group for veterans — it’s for veterinarians.

Veterinarians are killing themselves in alarming numbers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found male vets are 2.1 times as likely and female vets 3.5 times as likely to die by suicide compared with the general population. The much higher rate for women is especially concerning as more than 60% of vets are women.

“I had 86 people in my vet school class,” Jurney says. “Graduating class of 2005. Three of them are gone. Died by their own hand.”

DO YOU KNOW THE HARDEST WORD IN HANGMAN GAME?


Here Is the Hardest Word to Guess in Hangman, According to Science

Hint: It’s only four letters long.

It’s a rainy day in the 1500s, and the King’s Justice slides a noose around your neck. He tightens it, steps around the wobbly stool beneath your feet and looks you square in the eye. “I’m thinking of a four-letter word,” he grunts. “If you can guess it in ten tries, I’ll let you go free.”

Ah… A classic game of Hangman.

Fortunately for most of us, the letter-guessing classroom game rarely involves such high stakes. But there’s one word that’s hardest to guess –– perhaps just as difficult as these word puzzles that will leave you stumped.  What word should you pick to give your opponent, statistically, the lowest odds of victory?
