    Crisis.

    Early 15c., from Latinized form of Greek krisis "turning point in a disease" (used as such by Hippocrates and Galen), literally "judgment, result of a trial, selection," from krinein "to separate, decide, judge," from PIE root *krei- "to sieve," thus "discriminate, distinguish." Transferred non-medical sense is 1620s in English. A German term for "mid-life crisis" is Torschlusspanik, literally "shut-door-panic," fear of being on the wrong side of a closing gate

    Turning point..

    To be honest , I turned away from the sensationalistic, (attention seeking, click bait, paparazzi) type reporting many years ago.
    But you do need this sort of drama, to keep the minds of the young ones busy, or they might rise up and make the world a better place for themselves.

    And lets face it, this sort of distraction/enterainment wastes a lot less Loins and Christians than the Colosseum used to.

    Although, if I were the governments of the world, I would charge Mark Zukerberg and the like a huge "wasting public time" and "detraction from GDP" tax.
    And use it to fund schools and parks and others such practical things.

    Attention, like money, is a zero sum game.

    Banks fronting internal staff as "Advisors" when they're really just there to sell products has been a big factor in the FMA completely redoing how advisor qualifications work.... yet again.

    The Healthy Homes Initiatives curtain and other 'interventions' are funded by the taxpayer. They want more money. MBIE is to open consultation shortly on minimum standards for rentals under the Healthy Homes Guarantee Act.

    Call me cynical .....
