These inflatable decorations will transform your lawn for Halloween

Halloween is right around the corner, though some of us have been saying that since November 1st, and with it comes the frighteningly festive urge to decorate. But if the neighborhood slips too much into a routine, it can turn frightfully dull. That one house that always hangs the same witch and cat cutouts from 1985. The neighbor whose styrofoam tombstones always get lost in the autumn winds. Even the house that takes its front porch gore scene too far can get boring after a while.

MLB player sends signed ball to 10-year-old fan robbed of catch

A Washington Nationals fan caught some flack earlier this month after a video went viral of him robbing a baseball thrown by a player on the field to a group of younger girls in the stands.

 

The video was posted to Twitter by Gina Hilliard, who is the mother of 10-year-old Avery and a team parent for an all-star softball team in Shenandoah, Virginia. In the tweet, Gina Hilliard asked the Nationals to send her daughter a ball to replace the one that the other fan grabbed.

Study finds potential link between daily multivitamin and improved cognition in older adults

Taking a daily multivitamin might be associated with improved brain function in older adults, a new study says, and the benefit appears to be greater for those with a history of cardiovascular disease.

 

The findings did not surprise the researchers — rather, they were shocked, said Laura Baker, an author of the study and professor of gerontology and geriatric medicine at Wake Forest University in North Carolina.

Hospital researchers working toward blood test for cancer

One of the ideas President Joe Biden is promoting in Boston as part of his "Cancer Moonshot" plan is trying to catch cancers earlier using simple blood tests.

A team of 50 researchers and 200 support staff at Mass General's Cancer Center in Charlestown, Massachusetts, are working to make those tests a reality.

 

“Because if you can find an early cancer and you can cut it before it spreads, then you're cured,” said MGH Cancer Center director Dr. Daniel Haber.

Queen Elizabeth II under medical supervision as doctors 'concerned' for her health

LONDON, England —

Queen Elizabeth II has been placed under medical supervision because doctors are "concerned for Her Majesty's health," Buckingham Palace said Thursday, as members of the royal family rushed to Scotland to the side of the 96-year-old monarch.

The announcement by the palace came a day after the queen canceled a virtual meeting of her Privy Council when doctors advised her to rest following a full day of events on Tuesday, when she formally asked Liz Truss to become Britain's prime minister.

Early Signs of Dementia or Alzheimer's You Should Watch Out For

Do you worry that you - or someone you love - is at high risk for age-related cognitive decline, like dementia or Alzheimer’s?

Here’s an early sign to watch out for: Walking more slowly than usual.
A team from Monash University in Australia led by Dr. Taya Collyer kept tabs on nearly 17 thousand retirees over a 7-year period. Study participants took periodic tests to measure memory, mental speed, verbal fluency, overall cognitive decline, and walking speed.

The result: Those walking at least 5% slower than the previous year, were at higher risk for dementia.

Dr. Collyer believes a declining walking speed is linked to shrinkage in the hippocampus, the brain area linked to memory, learning, and spatial navigation.

The good news is: We can slow the progress of age-related cognitive decline with consistent exercise! Psychologists from the University of Pittsburgh had seniors begin walking 10 minutes a day - and gradually increased it to 40 minutes a day.

The result: Study participants increased the size of their hippocampus by up to 2%, which shaved 1 to 2 years off their brain’s actual age.

Again, we now know one of the early signs of cognitive decline is a slower walking speed.

McDonald's is adding a new treat for fall

McDonald's newest item for fall doesn't have pumpkin or maple flavors. Rather, it's a nostalgic treat from more than three decades ago.

Beginning Sept. 14, the chain is bringing back the cheese Danish, a flaky pastry filled with sweet cream cheese and topped with a buttery streusel and light vanilla drizzle. McDonald's said the limited-time offering is a "fresh take" on a similar pastry it briefly served in the 1980s.

Credit Karma ordered to pay users after falsely claiming they were pre-approved for credit cards

Some Credit Karma users could be seeing part of a $3 million payout.

 

The Federal Trade Commission has ordered the company to pay users after falsely claiming they were pre-approved for credit cards.

FTC officials say nearly one-third of people who applied for those offers, were denied and that misrepresentation harmed their credit scores.

This happened between 2018 and 2021.
