‘The Black Veil Was Lifted’

Jorgia Nevers

Following the birth of her third child, Jorgia Hamel Nevers experienced Postpartum Depression (PPD) for the first time. The 30-year-old from Robeline, Louisiana, identified her symptoms and spoke with her husband, Travis, and a counselor. They informed her doctor during a 6-week postnatal follow-up appointment. He prescribed Zulresso, the first FDA-approved drug designed to treat postpartum depression. It is an IV treatment which can reportedly help patients feel relief from symptoms within 48 hours. Soon, Nevers felt a loving, healthy attachment to her baby River and her 2-year-old and 5-year-old sons again. She decided to share her story because she says she wants women who are experiencing PPD to know that they can speak up, seek treatment and get better. This is her story, as told to PEOPLE.

River was born August 27, 2019. I started having some PPD symptoms a week after her birth. Since she’s

Bridal hair accessories you can wear as an alternative to the traditional veil | The Independent

The dress has been altered and the shoes have been polished, but as a bride there is still one more major decision ahead of you: Which wedding hair accessory to choose.

For many people, only a traditional veil will do, which is why it has managed to maintain its place as a fixture in the wedding world for countless centuries. But, for more contemporary brides, the accessory has been overshadowed by its patriarchal origins.

According to wedding historian Susan Waggnoer, the veil is the “oldest part of the bridal ensemble” and dates back to ancient times when people “wrapped brides from head to toe to represent the delivery of a modest and untouched maiden”.

“The veil also hid her away from evil spirits who might want to thwart her happiness,” Waggnoer told Brides magazine, adding that a more practical reason for the accessory, said to stem from the days of

FEATURE -Job or hijab? Singapore debates ban on Islamic veil at work

Sept 21 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Every day before she starts her shift at a government hospital in Singapore, Farah removes her hijab – the Islamic veil she has worn since a teenager.

Although minority Muslim women can freely wear the hijab in most settings in Singapore, some professions bar the headscarf – and a recent case has triggered fresh debate on diversity and discrimination in the workplace.

Now Farah has joined a growing number of Muslims – who account for about 15% of Singapore’s 4 million resident population – calling for the ban to end, with an online petition gathering more than 50,000 signatures.

“They told me I can’t work here if I wear the tudung,” said Farah, using the local Malay term for hijab, as she recounts her job interview two years ago for a physiotherapist position.

“I felt a sense

BP lifts veil of secrecy on Big Oil trading profits

BP Plc offered a glimpse of the profitability of its huge and secretive trading arm, suggesting it makes annual returns of as much as $2.5 billion.

The revelation, which came during presentations this week about the company’s clean-energy plans, follows the emergence of trading in the first half of the year as one of the few bright spots for BP and its peers. The operations brought a torrent of cash that partly offset the impact of the coronavirus crisis on oil prices and energy demand.

BP’s in-house trading business has a “long track record” of boosting the company’s return on average capital employed by “close to” 2 percentage points, according to Chief Executive Officer Bernard Looney.

Unlike the closely guarded trading profit, the company does disclose the average capital it employs each year. From 2015 to 2019, that figure was $124.2 billion a year, according to last year’s annual report.
