1. Trump vs. Biden on Immigration

This week, we saw dueling visits at the U.S. border—one from President Biden and another from former President Trump. Immigration is an issue that’s expected to dominate the 2024 presidential election, which is why it’s crucial to understand the state of the immigration system and U.S. border under both men. The charts in this article are an excellent snapshot.

2. How Are You Really?

While most of us regularly stay on top of our physical health—we get check-ups, exercise, try to eat a healthy diet, and get enough sleep—regularly checking in with our emotional health is less common, though arguably just as important. The series of questions in this excellent piece will help you not only assess your well-being, but also identify the various aspects of your mental health and home in on what’s working and where you might need to make some adjustments.

3. How to Help Older Parents From a Distance

According to an AARP report, long-distance caregivers (meaning they live an hour or more from their care recipient) represent more than 1 in 10 of the country’s estimated 53 million caregivers. This presents both logistical and financial challenges, and can be overwhelming for everyone involved. For more insights on this topic and tips on how to manage long-distance caregiving, click here.
