Baseball is a booming business. With total annual revenues of more than $10 billion (yes, billion) last season — a record — and enjoying a 24-year era of labor peace, the game first dubbed the “national pastime” in print in 1856 has retained its unique hold on the nation’s historical imagination.

For years, the field of mental health has been largely barren of meaningful treatment advances. But now, scientists have new hope in the least likely of places: psychedelic drugs. Recent research suggests that certain psychedelic substances can help relieve anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction and the fear surrounding a terminal diagnosis.

One of the reasons that I love matcha so much is that it’s both energizing and calming at the same time. This green powder has become an integral part of my daily morning ritual, but instead of drinking matcha all the time, I also like to mix it up and create fun breakfast bowls with it. These only take a few minutes to make, and have become my go-to meals in the AM, especially when I’m pressed for time.

Harvey Weinstein turned himself in for arrest in New York on Friday on charges of rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct in cases involving two women. An attorney for Weinstein, who has always denied allegations of "any allegations of non-consensual sex," said on Friday that Weinstein would plead not guilty to all charges filed by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

The European Union's much-vaunted General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force this week. But Europe isn’t the only entity trying to balance digital freedoms with citizens' privacy rights. These five facts look at the state of data privacy laws around the world. What is GDPR? GDPR is the updated replacement to Europe’s 1995 Data Protection Directive, one that’s taken almost a decade to get across the finish line.

President Donald Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will probably still end up happening eventually, says an academic who has studied the country for decades. Leon Sigal, the director of the Northeast Asia Cooperative Security Project at the Social Science Research Council, says Trump's letter Thursday informing Kim that he is canceling their scheduled June 12 face-to-face meeting should not be taken as the end of the two countries' negotiations for a summit.

When former Colombian guerrilla leader Seuxis Hernandez was arrested in April for plotting to traffic 10 tons of cocaine to the U.S., his fate became tied to that of his country’s fragile peace deal. Hernandez, widely known by his alias Jesus Santrich, is a member of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and helped negotiate the FARC’s peace deal with the government in November 2016, ending a 52-year civil war that killed 220,000 and displaced millions of Colombians.

In the last decade, nearly 750 children have died after being left in a hot car, and a new study highlights just how quickly that can happen. On a hot day, a car parked in direct sunlight may reach temperatures that are dangerous to a child in approximately one hour, according to a paper published in the journal Temperature. Even a vehicle in a shady area could warm up to risky levels after around two hours, the study says. Children are particularly susceptible to heatstroke.

The ending of Solo, the newest Star Wars spinoff, makes it pretty clear that [f500link]Disney[/f500link] is planning a sequel—or even multiple sequels—about the swaggering smuggler's early days. Which is fine. Just please let one of those movies be a Lando Calrissian spinoff. Donald Glover, who plays a younger version of the beloved character, steals Solo.

Ireland has voted to repeal the Eighth Amendment of its constitution, two major exit polls are projecting. The vote, if confirmed by official results, would pave the way for the lifting of one of the strictest abortion laws in the world. An Irish Times exit poll of about 4,000 voters by Ipsos/MRBI shows that 68% voted "Yes" to repealing the Eighth Amendment, which guarantees a mother and her unborn fetus “an equal right to life.” An estimated 32% said "No," according to the poll.
