Saving The Old Folks

“Experts are cautious because the drug, Aducanumab, is still in the early stages of development.But a study in Nature has shown it is safe and hinted that it halts memory decline.Larger studies are now under way to fully evaluate the drug’s effects.The build-up of amyloid in the brain has been a treatment target for many years.”

After Trump’s disgusting performances yesterday, it’s wonderful to have some good news. A new medicine has shown good results against Alzheimer’s disease, a terrible killer that slowly tortures individuals and their families. Stopping the disease or preventing it would indeed make the world a better place. The victims are usually elderly but it also takes many who would otherwise have decades of the good life among us. It’s likely the leading killer of folks who avoid/survive cancer or heart-disease.

    dougman again being uninformed. There is a reason why Hillary got away with it over cyber-attacks.
    Yes Russia a hacking crime is not even a jail sentence is pay a fine go home if you made more than the fine good luck to you.

    Now committing a crime in Russia that another country classes as a act of war has serous punishments. If USA treats the crime as an attempted act of war the Russia hacker has committed an act of treason for attempting to get Russia into a war with another country that has way more punishment than hacking.

    Welcome to the complex world of international relations sometimes you have to declare stuff acts of war so that people causing trouble can be punished.

    Speaking of disgusting, Hillary the crook just threatened Russia with war.
    dougman so you are perfectly fine if russia hackers rig the next usa election put in who ever they want and pay only 1000 USD for the privileged under a hacking change or would you like them spending the next 15 years in jail under a treason change and having lose all the proceeds of crime. Due to what Hillary has said if they get caught messing with the USA election now they can be punished for possible act of war so treason in Russia.

    This is the problem with people following these idiot groups without checking out the facts behind it. Now if Trump had said it the same facts about the mess could have been used to protect him.

    I bet dougman would be totally upset if after the election it came out Russian hackers rigged it and they could not be punished because it was not a possible act of war at the time. At least one of them had the say the line.

    Also there is more investigation resources for locating act of treason in Russia than locating a computer crime.

    “Saving The Old Folks”… does this imply that you will be retiring to an old folks home?

    Under NAFTA, I’ve had the right to emigrate to USA for ~20 years or so. I did think of teaching there once or twice but certification and low pay certainly put a stop to that nonsense. The only reason to emigrate to USA that makes any sense to me is easier access to pistols and even personal carriage of pistols. Other than that, USA is a train-wreck and I just can’t look away. Imagine spending 2 years of a 4-year cycle on campaigning for election? Does that make sense to anyone? In Canada, elections are a few weeks every 4 or 5 years, and we have medicare and lots of forested land in which I can hunt and gather.

    OTOH, USAians have been migrating to Canada for ages.

    For someone that resides in Canada, you sure have a thing for Trump. Perhaps you envy American life, eh?
