By TASSANEE VEJPONGSA and DAVID RISING BANGKOK (AP) — A former police officer facing a drug charge burst into a day care center Thursday in Thailand, killing dozens of preschoolers and teachers and then shooting more people as he fled. At least 36 people were slain in the deadliest rampage in the nation’s history. The assailant, who was fired earlier this year, took his own life after killing his wife and child at home. Photos taken by first responders showed the school’s floor littered with the tiny bodies of children still on their blankets, where they had been taking an afternoon nap. The images showed slashes to their faces and gunshots to their heads and pools of blood. A teacher told ThaiPBS public broadcaster that the assailant got out of a car and immediately shot a man eating lunch outside, then fired more shots.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Have you ever played fifty-two card pick-up? It is not a game that you would normally willingly undertake. Here’s why. Someone offers to you that it is an allegedly fun sport and if you take the sweet bait they then toss an entire deck of playing cards into the air and summarily onto the floor. The person then gives you a cheeky smile and tells you to go ahead and pick up the cards. That’s the entire game. Prankster! I do have a somewhat thoughtful question to ask you about this.

Happiness, then, can refer to a way of thinking, such as being optimistic; a way of feeling joy, pleasure, relief, or gratitude; or simply a way of being.”— Dr. Nancy Etcoff, Professor of Psychology, Harvard Medical School Last week, a paper I co-authored with the scientists from Deep Longevity , Chinese University of Hong Kong , and Stanford , went viral and was covered in Fortune , Fox News , The Hill , New York Post , The Guardian and many other top-tier international media.
