- Donald Trump demanded Sunday morning former President Barack Obama and his deputy Joe Biden go to jail for their involvement in the witch hunt against Michael Flynn. Speaking to Fox Business, he dubbed the targeting of his former national security adviser “the greatest political crime in the history of our country”. “If I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, I think everybody would have been in jail a long time ago, and I’m talking with 50 year sentences. It’s a disgrace what’s happened this is the greatest political scam, hoax in the history of our country. And people should be going to jail for this stuff and hopefully, a lot of people are going to have to pay,” the President fulminated. The Justice Department decided to drop its case against Flynn 7 May, a big victory for the President given he’d long-argued Obama’s White House had gone after Flynn in a bid to damage the incoming administration. The end of Flynn’s three-year legal battle followed the release of FBI communications which showed the Bureau leadership discussed whether they should “get [Flynn] to lie” or “get him fired” before interviewing him. It’s also been revealed the operation targeting Flynn found no evidence implicating the general in “colluding” with Russia and would’ve been closed if then-FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok, later fired for anti-Trump text messages, hadn’t intervened to keep the case open.

- “The best way to take care of our mental health is to move our muscles, especially our brain,” says Bharat Gautam, a nepalese clinical psychologist. “When we paint, we use our mind as well as our hands regularly. The synergy created due to the combination of creativity as well as physical activeness while painting helps people become more mindful; it helps clear your mind, making you feel fresher, more jovial.” According to Gautam, “When you paint you get a sense of personal achievement. While other forms of creative avenues, like listening to music, reading books or watching movies are helpful too in coping with uncertain times, they are viewed more as forms of distractions. Painting, on the other hand, helps people express themselves making the experience more fulfilling,” he says.
