The holiday season often brings unwelcome guests - stress and depression. And it´s no wonder. The holidays present a dizzying array of demands - parties, shopping, baking, cleaning, and entertaining, to name just a few. Feeling down during the holidays can be tough, especially since you seem so out of step with the world. Everyone else seems to be beaming, rosy cheeked, bursting with holiday spirit. You´re feeling wretched and exhausted. Holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, but for many people, they are anything but. Depression may occur at any time of the year, but the stress and anxiety of the holiday season, especially during the months of November and December (and, to a lesser extent, just before Valentine´s Day), may cause even those who are usually content to experience loneliness and a lack of fulfillment. According to one 2015 American study of patients treated by emergency psychiatric services during the Christmas season, the most common stressors were feelings of loneliness and being without a family. 1.

Set during the Great Depression and based in part on real characters and a series of historical events, Toughs follows the story of Loretto Jones as he finds his life intertwined with the fate of Vince Coll, a 23-year-old Irish gangster who for a brief moment rose to the level of a national celebrity during his war with Dutch Schultz, Owen Madden, and Lucky Luciano. Tagged ´´Mad Dog Coll´´ after killing five-year-old Michael Vengelli in a botched assassination attempt, Coll was the subject of a shoot-to-kill order issued by New York City Police Commissioner Edward P. Mulrooney, a $50,000 bounty offered by Dutch Shultz and Owen Madden, and $30,000 in reward money from by the Patrolmen´s Benevolent Association and the city´s newspapers. Loretto and Vince are bound to each other by years spent in an orphanage and on the streets, but in the summer of 1931, with Loretto in love with newly-divorced Gina Baronti, and Vince in thrall to the beautiful Lottie Kriesberger, their world of tough guys in tough times is hurtling toward disaster, and Loretto finds himself faced with impossible choices. 1.

Stress and depression are among the two most common health concerns in today´s fast-paced and modern world. As the decades go by, more and more people are finding themselves in workplaces that brew stress and in situations that foster depression. Stress in itself is considered good by many medical professionals-stress keeps an individual alert, motivated, and ready to respond to any kind of threat. People who have faced tough deadlines in work or have actively competed in sports know the positive effects of stress, as it pushes the body to respond better and improve its performance. However, too much stress is believed to be one of the causes of major depression in individuals that are susceptible or predisposed to the condition. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jocelyn Ahlf.

In the long annals of sports and crime, no story compares to the one that engulfed the Luckman family in 1935. As 18-year-old Sid Luckman made headlines across New York City for his high school football exploits at Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, his father, Meyer Luckman, was making headlines in the same papers for a very different reason: the gangland murder of his own brother-in-law. Amazingly, when Sid became a star at Columbia and a Hall of Fame NFL quarterback in Chicago, all of it while Meyer Luckman served 20-years-to-life in Sing Sing Prison, the connection between sports celebrity son and mobster father was studiously ignored by the press and ultimately overlooked for eight decades.Tough Luck traces two simultaneous historical developments through a single immigrant family in Depression-era New York: the rise of the National Football League led by the dynastic Chicago Bears, whose famed owner George Halas convinced Sid Luckman to help him turn the sluggish game of pro football into America´s favorite pastime; and the demise - triggered by Meyer Luckman´s crime and initial cover-up of the Brooklyn labor rackets and Louis Lepke´s infamous organization Murder, Inc. 1.
