Pioneering and Oscar-nominated actress Diahann Carroll, who broke network television’s color line, died Friday after a bout with cancer, her daughter said.

She was 84.

“Carroll was a consummate entertainer and beloved icon whose career spanned nearly seven decades,” her daughter, Suzanne Kay, said in a statement. “She paved the way for many and never allowed anyone to limit or define her.”

‘The Bogeyman’ is back: What Luis Severino expects from himself in his 2019 debut

Where there was once a Sandman, there now might be a Bogeyman.

At least that’s what teammate Domingo German calls New York Yankees ace Luis Severino: “The Bogeyman.” Batters, said German, take pause just hearing his name. His stuff can haunt you. And you underestimate him at your peril.

“Remember the way it was when Pedro [Martinez] was going to pitch? Everyone would be tense because Pedro was on the mound. Severino can be like that,” said German, who has gone 18-4 with a 4.09 ERA while Severino has been sidelined this season. “He’s so strong. He hates losing and loves to compete. He has all the potential to come back strong and be huge for us heading into the playoffs.”As for Severino, he was amused by the comparison. After all, Martinez was his childhood hero and is now a mentor at times.

7 Ways To Make Therapy More Affordable

Leave a comment

.

There’s no denying therapy is a huge financial burden: Affordability was the top reason people avoid mental health services, according to a survey conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

Depending on where you live and what kind of insurance you have, the price can be upwards of $80 to $200 for one 45- to 60-minute session. (And depending on your city, that cost can be even higher. In New York, for example, it’s not uncommon to pay around $300 per session.)

This happens for a number of reasons. Insurance is a big one. Many companies don’t often support therapists’ diagnoses or don’t provide adequate mental health coverage under their plans. Therapists also often can’t afford to accept insurance, meaning most of their clients have to pay completely out-of-pocket.

But here’s the truth: Therapy doesn’t have to be expensive in order to work. There are multiple options to get the help and treatment you deserve.

Suicides of two mental health advocates in a week serve as a grim reminder

Psychotherapist Stacey Freedenthal had helped many people overcome suicidal thoughts before she attempted to take her own life.

Freedenthal, in her 20s at the time and pursuing her master’s degree in social work, had been a volunteer at a suicide prevention hotline. When callers phoned her in crisis, she used her training and education to help.

But at the same time, the depression she had struggled with herself on-and-off for more than a decade was worsening. The advice she gave to others contemplating ending their lives didn’t seem applicable to her. One night in January 1996, six months after she finished her volunteer position at the hotline, she tried to kill herself.

“Nobody is immune from suicide,” including mental health professionals, said Freedenthal, who is now an associate professor at the University of Denver graduate school of social work and the creator of SpeakingofSuicide.com, a suicide prevention website.

Gyorko, Dodgers damage Mets’ chances with 3-2 comeback win

Pete Alonso is slumping at the wrong time for the New York Mets.

And with little margin for error, their two most reliable relievers let a game get away Sunday night that might prove too much to overcome.

Jedd Gyorko came off the bench late and played a big role in rallying the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-2 victory that damaged the Mets’ dwindling playoff chances. They dropped four games behind the Chicago Cubs for the second NL wild card with 13 to go. Milwaukee is three games ahead of New York.

Finally finished with a very difficult stretch in their schedule that lasted more than five weeks, the resurgent Mets now visit also-rans Colorado and Cincinnati on their final road trip this week before hosting last-place Miami and NL East-leading Atlanta.

“We’ve got a lot of fight on this team. So I wouldn’t count us out yet,” pitcher Zack Wheeler said.

“Saturday Night Live” has added its first Asian cast member.

The late-night sketch comedy series announced Thursday that Bowen Yang, who joined the show as a staff writer last year, was among three new hires for Season 45.

The promotion of Yang, who is of Chinese heritage, makes him the series’ only Asian American full-time cast member. Former cast members Fred Armisen and Rob Schneider both are part Asian.

Chloe Fineman and Shane Gillis are also among the latest recruits.

Yang, who is gay, co-hosts the podcast, Las Culturistas, entertains on comedy club stages and is known for his lip-sync videos. Yang was also one of the writers of the 2019 Golden Globes and has appeared on such shows as “High Maintenance” and “Broad City.”
