  • Chase let an elderly customer wire more than $600,000 to an overseas scammer

    Seniors lose more than $600 million a year to fraud, according to the Federal Trade Commission. That’s shocking and heartbreaking. But what also raises my hackles is when banks turn a blind eye to such activity, authorizing money transfers when it should be obvious that something out of the ordinary is happening. Lisa Spanierman contacted me recently to relate how her 81-year-old mother got fleeced to the tune of more than $600,000, and how Chase bank did precious little to prevent the theft of much of her life’s savings.
  • Déjà vu – The UK is about to experience a huge wave of deaths among the Elderly and Vulnerable comparable to April 2020; but Covid-19 will NOT be to blame

    The UK is about to experience a huge wave of deaths among the elderly and most vulnerable population in scenes that will resemble those of April 2020. The public will be told that Covid-19 is to blame, but the truth is that the recipe for disaster that has been cooked up by the UK Government and its circle of scientific advisors will be solely responsible.A recipe that has included mandating vaccines for carers, dedicating the energy of the entire NHS to administering “booster” jabs to the nation, and the mass purchase of a drug known as midazolam yet again.In March...

    The Greek government will fine all unvaccinated people aged 60 and over €100 (£85/$113) every month after mandatory jabs are enforced from next month. The new policy came as part of an amendment to existing legislation on the mandatory vaccine policies introduced by the government earlier this week and will see anyone born prior to December 31st, 1961, unless they can prove they have recovered from the Wuhan virus in the last six months or have particular vulnerability to vaccine side-effects, newspaper Ekathimerini reports.

    SHANGHAI (Kyodo) Two Japanese nationals in their 50s received heart transplants between 2001 and 2004 at a Shanghai hospital whose organs mainly come from death-row inmates, sources at a Taiwanese company that arranged the procedures said Thursday. Japan was seemingly unaware of the cases, as a survey released March 9 by the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry said there were no cases of Japanese receiving heart transplants in Asia outside of Japan. Ethical and medical concerns have often been raised regarding organ transplants in China over issues that include the use of organs of prisoners on death row and uncertain...

    As Republicans have rushed to rally around “affordable, accessible daycare,” I have asked a lot of those Republicans the same question. What do Republicans believe to be the best — BEST — environment for a child to be raised? Or at a daycare, or at home by their mom or their dad or aunt or grandma, etc? Republicans, I thought, were always supportive of stay-at-home parents because it is most beneficial for a child. Yet here we are, doing what we can and incentivizing moms and dads to spend less time raising their kids. But here we have a President...

    A Swiss human experimenter, a Hungarian Nazi collaborator, and an Iranian tech tycoon walk into Washington D.C. What do you call them? The absentee owners of the Democrat Party. It’s not a joke. Unfortunately it’s grimly serious. Politico recently reported that the Sixteen Thirty Fund, the leading dark money machine of the Left, had pumped $410 million into Dem 2020 efforts to defeat Trump and Republicans. The Sixteen Thirty Fund had raised a record $390 million that year and half the money came from just 4 donors. While the names of the donors are secret, the article did note the...

    I just watched the segment on Tucker where the mother was not allowed to be with her disabled daughter because of COVID rules. She was arrested....and the hospital could have a huge lawsuit on their hands if the mother knows this. I have posted this before. Have dealt with it ourselves with our elderly, disabled mother. The hospital backed down when we told them this. Please...everyone. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS! And would someone please send this link to Tucker? Don't have a contact for the mom...but she needs to know this. Hospitals are ignorant of the ADA law.

    A 19-year-old cat named Gus was brought into a North Carolina shelter recently, and the Humane Society of Catawba County’s executive director, Jane Bowers, said his owner was “heartbroken.” Bowers told Daily Paws they were forced to surrender him because of unforeseen circumstances, the website reported Thursday. At the shelter, Gus received a screening that showed he was enjoying good health. However, even with the organization’s funds for extra health care and help from another location, Bowers said there was still concern about him having to spend the rest of his life in a shelter. But it was not long...

    Road rages can often turn out to be quite dangerous especially for elderlies. Senior citizens are at a huge risk of getting their cars stolen by young thieves who can easily overpower the elderly or by younger people who can try and attack them. However, not all senior citizens are easy targets because this incident that happened is proof that sometimes people pick the wrong person to mess with. We have a received a footage showing an 82-year-old man fighting off a immigrant who tried to attack him in his car. The elderly man was defending from the younger man...

    Another Louisiana nursing home resident who was being held at a temporary shelter during Hurricane Ida before being moved elsewhere on Thursday has died, according to a coroner, marking the fifth such death of residents that were transported to the facility.The temporary shelter, a warehouse in the town of Independence, was overwhelmed after receiving hundreds of residents from seven nursing homes on August 27 ahead of Hurricane Ida, officials said, as power and sanitary conditions were failing. "Electricity went out more than once, and when that happens then the oxygen concentrators stop working. So that's a problem in itself. I...

    A new study published in the journal JAMA Neurology suggests that the length of sleep time by adults could play a major role in their brain health, including the prevention of early on-set dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.It is well-proven among sleep scientists that poor sleep quality is common among older adults and can lead to changes in cognitive function, including a person’s ability to properly think, reason, problem-solve, make decisions, memory and attention span.Researchers used this basis as the jumping-off point for their own study to investigate any association between sleep duration, demographic, lifestyle choices, cognitive function and levels of...

    Kaiser Permanente ^ | Spring 2021
    PASADENA, Calif. — A Kaiser Permanente study showed that one type of pneumonia vaccine, the PCV13 vaccine, may affect the course of COVID-19 for some older adult patients. The study was published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases. While the recently authorized COVID-19 vaccines remain the most important strategy for preventing COVID-19, investigators found that older adults who received pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13), which prevents acquisition of certain pneumococcal strains, experienced 35% lower risk of COVID-19 diagnosis than adults who did not receive the vaccine. In contrast, an alternative pneumococcal vaccine (PPSV23), which prevents severe pneumococcal disease but does not...

    A team from the University of Ottawa, in Ontario, Canada, says its Risk Evaluation for Support: Predictions for Elder-Life in the Community Tool (RESPECT) can accurately project death within six months. Researchers based the tool on data from more than 491,000 elderly people who received home care between 2007 and 2013. The team says its tool is undergoing a pilot study in community settings in Ontario and hopes that physicians and home care staff use the calculator to help them understand the care their patients may need. Researchers say the tool focuses on older adults who use or need home...

    Older adults who experience tooth loss are at increased risk for cognitive impairment and dementia, and their risk grows with each tooth lost, a study published Thursday by JAMDA: The Journal of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine found. However, older adults with dentures do not share this increased risk, suggesting that timely treatment with implants may protect against cognitive decline, the researchers said. "Our findings underscore the importance of maintaining good oral health and its role in helping to preserve cognitive function," study co-author Bei Wu said in a press release. "It's important to gain a deeper understanding of the...

    New research reveals a possible new approach to preventing death and severe disease in elderly people infected with SARS-CoV-2. Researchers demonstrated in a preclinical study that senolytic drugs significantly reduced mortality upon infection from a beta-coronavirus closely related to SARS-CoV-2 in older mice. Senescent cells -- which are cells in the body that are damaged -- contribute to inflammation, multiple chronic diseases and age-related loss of resilience, and they accumulate in our body as we age. Senolytic drugs, previously co-discovered by the U of M Medical School and the Mayo Clinic researchers, selectively remove senescent cells from the body. The...
