    Rev. Jesse Jackson Reveals He is Battling Parkinson’s Disease Civil rights activist, Jesse Jackson, revealed Friday that he’s been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The 76-year-old two-time Democratic presidential candidate stated he and his family noticed changes three years ago and, “after a battery of tests, my physicians identified the issue as Parkinson’s disease, a disease that bested my father.” His father, Noah L. Robinson, died in 1997 at the age of 88 of a heart attack and complications of Parkinson’s. What is Parkinson’s Disease? Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, next to Alzheimer’s, and the most common movement disorder that affects 1% of the world’s population…

    Gene's Technology Corner: Kudos for the “Unoriginal” iPhone X While 2017 isn’t over, Time magazine has already published the list of its “25 Best Inventions of 2017.” Now you’ve probably read about this already, but a little explanation is in store. So after the iPhone X was first announced, the critics lambasted Apple for being late to the party with some of its important features. Take OLED displays, which have already appeared on Android smartphones. It’s important to note that Samsung makes the iPhone X’s display. Whatever you think about Samsung’s penchant for stealing ideas from other companies, it certainly has the chops to build the parts tech companies…

    Consider the Source America!  Accusers are Guilty! All politics formed against Christ and His Gospel end at last in the destruction of those who contrived them. –George Whitfield It never ceases to amaze me of the absolute criminal conduct of the state-controlled media that continuously puts the cameras and microphones up to the mouths of corrupt politicians who are doing everything in their power to protect the establishment that is attempting to destroy not only Judge Roy Moore, but this country as well. Keep in mind that those who are accusing Moore have been busted time and time again in lie after lie and scandal after scandal.…

  • Opinion: Surprise! The men you’ve granted political power are pigs
    Written by
    The only surprise from the recent barrage of sexual allegations brought against, first, members of Hollywood’s power elite, and later, members of the political power elite, is that it took this long for victims to air their allegations. It should surprise no one that Kevin Spacey and Louis CK are sexually deviant, and it should surprise no one that men granted political power -- even George Bush and Al Franken -- tend to be predatorily handsy. Perhaps the victims of America’s politicians needed Hollywood’s victims to come out to feel safe enough to reveal the wrongdoings of their alleged predators.…

  • New Blood Pressure Recommendations Released
    Written by
    New Blood Pressure Recommendations Released High blood pressure has now been redefined as being greater than 130/80 mmHg, down from 140/90 mmHg. This will mean close to 103 million more Americans will fall under the “hypertensive” category. Multiple agencies, including the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology, redefined the guidelines, in practice for the last 14 years, to lower the threshold for high blood pressure from 140/90 to 130/80. Under the old guidelines, 1/3 of US Americans were considered to have high blood pressure. Now 42% of Americans will be “hypertensive.” In lowering the guidelines, task force members hope to reduce complications associated…

  • Make America great for you
    Written by
    Make America great for you I’ll forward this by revealing that I have always lived in America and have never been outside America’s borders, almost strictly because of economic inability to do so. I’ll also prelude this by saying I don’t necessarily want to leave America currently. While I acquired a passport and New Zealand work visa prior to the 2016 Presidential Election, I decided to give America one last chance despite the election. I figure I’ll give my homeland until after the 2020 election to prove its worth. How did I find happiness in a country I find appalling and embarrassing? Step 1: Surround…

    Twins can afford to be wrong on Ohtani The Minnesota Twins’ poor history of scouting and signing Asian players shouldn’t prevent them from offering the Nippon Ham Fighters the $20-million maximum posting fee for a chance to negotiate a contract with pitcher/hitter Shohei Ohtani. The Twins’ Bad History with Asian Hitters Twins scouts have dropped the ball in Asia, resulting in the firing of their international scouting director. They’ve been paying ByungHo Park $3 million annually to play mostly minor league games, and they’ll do so for the next two years. He’s appeared in 62 MLB games and might not see the majors again, making Park a worse…

    4 movies about veterans for Veterans Day Today is Veterans Day in the United States, annually recognized on November 11th -- in honor of the signing of the armistice which ended WWI hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. The United States previously celebrated “Armistice Day” and it was more a day of recognition to honor veterans that died during WWI. In 1945 a WWII veteran named Raymond Weeks led a delegation to President Eisenhower and proposed the idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans and not just those who died in WWI. Eisenhower supported the idea of a national veterans day but…

  • The NutriMedical Report: Natural Therapies for Male Menopause
    Written by
    The NutriMedical Report: Natural Therapies for Male Menopause Male menopause (andropause) is caused by rising levels of the sex hormone binding protein and reduced production of the three main male hormones -- Testosterone, Androstenedione, and Dihydrotestosterone. To correct rising levels of the three hormones don't use hormone pills or creams, as these produce excessive conversion to female hormones and don't improve testicular production or release hormones bound to the sex hormone binding proteins. To determine your status you can order salivary test kits to your door, and send the results to Genova Diagnostics Labs in Atlanta. This is the very best natural and only safe way to correct…
