2. Dont Compare, Give Thanks Happy friends and fun-loving strangers present us with so much fodder for social comparison. It can be a challenge to disengage from the instinct to compare what we do and dont have and, in doing so, to feel unsatisfied with our own lives. One way to combat this slippery slope is to instead make conscious efforts to be grateful. When you find yourself feeling envious, make a list or meditate on the many things in your life that make you fortunateyour health, relationships, work that fulfills you, enriching hobbies, whatever brings you joy. Being fully aware of how full your life is with things you value will take the edge off any envy or disappointment that might arise. 3. Take Charge Summer sadness can arise from the feeling of exclusion, or the perception that people are having so much fun while we sit stuck. Sometimes, all it takes is a little proactive energy to create the kind of fun that you otherwise just passively observe and crave.

By transferring closer to his daughter, Tharpe had hoped to make himself a candidate for a hardship waiver that would enable him to play right away rather than sitting out a year first. That plan appears to have fallen apart because there wasn't a suitable option since Providence reportedly wasn't interested and UMass reportedly didn't have a vacant scholarship for Tharpe. I didnt want to sit out, Tharpe told CBSSports.com. At this point, Id rather just try the D-League instead of sitting out a year to play a year (in college). A fresh start at another college might have been a better option for Tharpe because his stock cannot be all that high after an inconsistent junior season. The 5-foot-11 point guard briefly lost his job to backup Frank Mason in early December, regained it with sporadic good performances in Big 12 play and finished with a whimper, going 6 of 24 from the field in Kansas' final five games and finishing with as many turnovers as assists in the Stanford loss. Tharpe also did not endear himself to the Kansas coaching staff with an Instagram photo featuring a shirtless Tharpe and a partially nude woman that went viral in late March. Self told the Kansas City Star he was "extremely disappointed" in Tharpe's judgement afterward. There's a good chance Self probably won't be impressed with Tharpe's judgment again this time either. To maximize his chances of latching on either in the D-League or a top European league, Tharpe needed a better showing at another college than what he delivered as a junior at Kansas. Now he has a hard road ahead of him to carve out a niche for himself in the pro ranks. For more Kansas news, visit JayhawkSlant.com.

New crime sometimes accompanies new technology, Prosecutor Eric Smith said in a news release. We need to impress upon our children that the images they post online or through texts have the potential to follow them eternally. If you distribute an intimate photograph of yourself, you can count the minutes until some criminal is posting it for the world to see. Kheir D. Maxwell, 18, and Germaine T. Holt, Jr., 17, are accused of obtaining nude or sexually explicit photographs of underage Cousino High School students without their consent and posting them on an Instagram page. During the investigation, Warren police ordered the page to be taken down. The pair then posted the images on a new Instagram page, according to the prosecutors office. In a separate case, Deshawn M. Smalls, 17, is accused of creating an Instagram page in April and posting nude images of underage female students from high schools in Warren without their consent, the prosecutors office said. He is charged with four counts of unlawful posting of a message, a two-year felony, and one count of using a computer to unlawfully post a message, a four-year felony.
