  • AP FACT CHECK: Trump minimizes IS risk, distorts Iran payout

    President Donald Trump wrongly dismissed the continuing threat of the Islamic State group and spread a false tale of the U.S. paying out billions of dollars to Iran as part of the multinational deal freezing its nuclear program in an address Wednesday that fell short on facts. He also made an assertion that is as dubious as it was provocative: that the Iranian missiles fired by Tehran at two military bases hosting U.S. forces in Iraq were paid for by money “made available” to Iran by the Obama administration. A look at some of the president’s claims in his remarks...

    God only knows where Biden got the idea that coal mining consists of throwing the stuff into a furnace. That’s not how it works, but I digress. Biden’s recommendation is stale stuff. It’s the kind of rhetoric that will only sway voters whose ideal president is a machine that spits out a white paper from 1998 every time someone pushes a button. Re-training programs for workers in precarious industries have been with us for a long time.So has a specific fixation on the tech industry, as though it’s a cure-all for rural poverty. But 1998 was a long time ago....

    DES MOINES — Returning to the campaign trail after Christmas, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Friday stood by his comments that he would not comply with a subpoena to testify at President Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate. In a meeting with the editorial board of The Des Moines Register, whose endorsement in the Iowa caucuses is coveted by presidential hopefuls, Mr. Biden argued that complying with a subpoena and testifying would essentially allow Mr. Trump to succeed in shifting attention onto Mr. Biden and away from the president’s own actions. “The reason I wouldn’t is because...

    The Trump campaign is renewing a furious attack against vulnerable Democratic lawmakers and party leaders who vote for impeachment. Throughout the day on social media, the campaign’s rapid-response team plans to call out 30 House Democrats in pro-Trump districts for putting party over country. Those lawmakers also have been the target of a $10-million-plus advertising campaign by Trump allies urging them to vote no on impeachment. The campaign is also targeting Democratic leaders such as House Judiciary Committee Jerrold L. Nadler of New York, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff of California, with real-time...

    If approved, it could not only help people with Parkinson's but also Alzheimer's. A drug that curbs delusions in Parkinson's patients did the same for people with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. That's the result of a study in which the benefit was so clear, the trial was stopped early. If regulators agree, the drug -- pimavanserin -- could become the first new medicine for Alzheimer's in nearly two decades. It's sold under the brand name Nuplazid by Acadia Pharmaceuticals Inc. About 8 million Americans have dementia, and up to 30% develop psychosis. The Associated Press reports pimavanserin targets...

    Twenty-five years ago this month, President Ronald Reagan told the nation he’d been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. “I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life,” he wrote in a letter addressed to his “Fellow Americans,” dated November 5, 1994. Reagan wrote that he and his wife, Nancy, decided to disclose his condition in hopes it would increase attention for the disease that slowly, but surely, robs the mind of its memories. “In opening our hearts, we hope this might promote greater awareness of this condition,” he wrote. “Perhaps it will encourage a clearer...

    President Trump said Thursday he may read the transcript of his July 25 telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky aloud to Americans in the style of the famous fireside chats delivered by President Franklin Roosevelt during the 1930s and 1940s. “This is over a phone call that is a good call,” Trump said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. "At some point, I’m going to sit down, perhaps as a fireside chat on live television, and I will read the transcript of the call, because people have to hear it. When you read it, it’s a straight call.”...

    Fatty acids found in baked goods and takeaways may put people at greater risk of dementia. Trans fats, which are used to make cakes, biscuits, margarines and fried food, are not banned in the UK, although they are not commonly used. Japanese researchers have now linked these fats to dementia, in a study of more than 1,600 people over 60. Estimating people's consumption of trans fats using blood tests, they found those with the highest levels in their body were 52 per cent more likely to get dementia. Evidence suggests trans fats may cause harmful inflammation and the build-up of...

    Former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton claimed Tuesday that the Russians are propping up U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii for a third-party presidential run in 2020. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said of Russia’s involvement in the next presidential election on former Obama White House advisor David Plouffe’s podcast. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.” During the interview, Clinton also branded former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to stumble over his words while discussing the economy and taxes on Tuesday night. "Why should someone who's clipping coupons in the stock market may, in fact, pay a lower tax rate than someone who in fact is, like I said, a schoolteacher and a fireman? It's ridiculous," Biden said. Biden made those comments while appearing at the fourth Democratic debate. Biden has long been the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination but is facing a potential challenge Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who has been gaining traction in key states.

    Now they don't have to worry about anyone talking about the Fight Club because their members naturally forget them. Three employees at the Danby House assisted living facility started an upper ground version of Fight Club that comes with a twist; dementia patients are their members. Marilyn Latish McKey, 32; Tonacia Yvonne Tyson, 20; Taneisha Deshawn Jordan, 26, have been charged for elder abuse and have been arrested accordingly. The report was filed in June after the appropriately named fight club leaders were accused of fighting one another and encouraging patients to fight each other. These are people whose bones...
