Virus, Floyd death merge in brutal blow to Black well-being
7/9/2020 7:53:43 PM

By Lindsey Tanner   Doctors have long known that Black people suffer disproportionately. Before the renewed cries of “Black Lives Matter,” they knew racism has very real, physical effects. They knew about socio-economic challenges that contribute to poor health. And they treated diabetes, hypertension and other chronic diseases that hit their Black patients harder than their white ones. Then came the coronavirus and George Floyd, a crushing double blow to Black people's well-being. Doctors and their patients are reeling from the impact. “We are...

Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some simple devices that can help tech-challenged seniors with video calls? My 80-year-old mother has been isolating herself for months now in fear of the coronavirus and I haven’t been able to see her face-to-face in quite a while.

Almost 63   Dear Almost, Yes, there are actually two ways you can stop your Social Security retirement benefits (once you’ve started collecting them) and restart them at a later date, which would boost your benefits.

It was a week that was shot to pieces
7/1/2020 12:54:26 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I only made one mistake last week, which is something of a record for me. I try limiting mistakes to one at a time, but not always in sequential order. I once tried to make my mistakes in a logical order, but it turned out to be a mistake. The one faux pas I made was taking Monday off. I proposed to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage that we take Monday off late Sunday evening, suggesting a contest to see who could sleep in the longest. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage readily agreed to my plan. This should have been a tip-off for me. On...

By Alan Fram   WASHINGTON (AP)—Yearning for change, a group of progressive Black Democratic congressional hopefuls is rushing toward the national stage, igniting rank-and-file enthusiasm in a party dominated by aging white leaders.

Jamaal Bowman, 44, an educator and political neophyte, is seeking a New York congressional seat held by the House Foreign Affairs Committee...

By Michael Liedtke   The families of some of the 85 people killed by a horrific Northern California wildfire ignited by Pacific Gas & Electric's long-neglected equipment vilified the company Wednesday as greedy, corrupt and reckless, telling heartbreaking stories of their loss in court.

Black Catholics: Words not enough as church decries racism
6/24/2020 6:04:38 PM

By David Crary   NEW YORK (AP)—Black Roman Catholics are hearing their church's leaders calling for racial justice once again after the killing of George Floyd, but this time they're demanding not just words but action. As protests against racism and police brutality continue nationwide, there are rising calls for huge new investment in Catholic schools serving Black communities; a commitment to teach the complex history of Black Catholics; and a mobilization to combat racism with the same zeal the church shows in opposing abortion. “As a church, we're...
