Petition To Apple: Add the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to ALL IPHONES · Change.org

Add the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to ALL IPHONES
Aditi Dixit started this petition to Apple

Suicide is a major health concern.

The summer before my freshman year of high school, I found out that two of my close friends had attempted suicide; and they’re not alone.

According to the CDC, in 2016 suicide was the tenth leading cause of death in the United States. It was also the second leading cause of death for people between the ages of 10 to 34.

With preteens, adolescents, and young adults at a high risk, Apple is in a perfect position to help. According to Business Insider, 82% of American teenagers own an iPhone as of April 2018.

While there are resources to help those struggling with suicidality, many have trouble seeking them out.

I would like all iPhones in America to come with a contact already set up for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The number is 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
Actually, I’d love to see it include the crisis textline https://www.crisistextline.org which handles a broad array of issues including suicide. Teens communicate more by text than calls.

They’re supposed to be the most loyal pets around.

But one dog has been allowing a bear to rummage through his owner’s trash – in exchange for deer bones brought for him by the animal.

Taking to Twitter, author Jesse Jordan, from Canada, posted a photo of Brickleberry, the mastiff-hound mixed breed, lazily enjoying his gifts beside a pile of rubbish on the ground.

He wrote: ‘My idiot furry son has one job at night – bork at things and make them go away. Easy, right?

‘HOWEVER, a bear has learned that my furry son can be bought. This is the THIRD TIME he’s been gifted deer bones in exchange for being allowed access to my trash, AND HE KEEPS DOING IT.’

Jesse then joked that he clearly had no choice but to ‘impeach him’ as a result of his behaviour.

He said: ‘Although I basically handed my dog this position of power, it’s become very clear that he has no idea how to actually do the job properly.

Teach Your Children to Ask Permission Before Petting a Strange Dog. There are 4.5 million dog bites in America each year, half of which happen to children. Make sure to teach your children to ask permission before petting any strange dogs.

‘Now not only do I have to clean up a huge mess, I see him putting his own self-interest first.’

But, he added that the Brickleberry, who also goes by the name Brick, was not in any danger, describing black bears in the area as ‘giant goofy raccoons’.

‘He is the best boy. His mum died days after he was born, so I raised him by hand,’ he said.

‘He is great with kids and apparently bears.’

Jesse’s tweet has already been liked more than 80,000 times, and shared by more than 22,000 people.

One person teased: ‘This just sounds like you’re not paying him enough. If the bear is offering a better deal, you can’t blame him for taking it. Capitalism.’

Another added: ‘I’m not sure if I’m more impressed by the bear or the dog… or horrified that the Great Animal Conspiracy is moving into its second phase…’

A third suggested: ‘That bear is a true business man, put a suit and list of jobs in the trash next time so he can move up in the world.’

While a fourth just joked: ‘Would not convict.’

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Dogs have a sense of time. It’s been proven that they know the difference between a hour and five. If conditioned to, they can predict future events, such as regular walk times.
