President Donald Trump participated in dubious tax schemes during the 1990s, including instances of outright fraud, that greatly increased the fortune he received from his parents, an investigation by The New York Times has found. Trump won the presidency proclaiming himself a self-made billionaire, and he has long insisted that his father, legendary New York City builder Fred C. Trump, provided almost no financial help. But The Times’ investigation, based on a vast trove of confidential tax returns and financial records, reveals that Trump received the equivalent today of at least $413 million from his father’s real estate empire, starting when he was a toddler and continuing to this day. Much of this money came to Trump because he helped his parents dodge taxes. He and his siblings set up a sham corporation to disguise millions of dollars in gifts from their parents, records and interviews show. Records indicate that Trump helped his father take improper tax deductions … [Read more...] about Trump engaged in suspect tax schemes as he reaped riches from father

Jayme Deerwester USA TODAY Published 3:19 PM EDT Sep 28, 2018 CNN founder Ted Turner has revealed that he is suffering from Lewy body dementia, the same form of dementia that Robin Williams battled in the last few years of his life. According to the website for the Lewy Body Dementia Association, LBD affects 1.5 million Americans. It is a progressive neurological disorder that affects a patient's memory, cognition (especially decision making), mood, behavior and balance and is often misdiagnosed as Parkinson's, as Williams' case was, or bipolar disorder, as Turner's was. In an interview with Ted Koppel set to air on "CBS Sunday Morning" this weekend (9 a.m. EDT/PDT), Turner, 79, likened his case to a "mild case of Alzheimer's ... but not nearly as bad ...

Displaying some of the memory problems characterized by LBD, he struggled to remember the name of his disorder, "I also have got, let's – the one … [Read more...] about Ted Turner has Lewy body dementia: What is the neurological disorder?
Ryan Mills and Melanie Payne Naples Published 3:22 p.m. UTC Jun 1, 2018 They told Billy Seigler he’d never walk again. Not because of his broken pelvis or busted right leg, but because his nursing home refused to provide the therapy he so desperately needed. Seigler relied on Governors Creek Health and Rehabilitation in Green Cove Springs to help him return to the independent life he lived before a 2010 attack and attempted robbery. Each time Seigler pleaded for physical therapy, the nursing home's rehabilitation director told the 45-year-old his government benefits didn't pay for it. But that was a lie. The state paid the Jacksonville-area nursing home a flat rate to provide Seigler care, including his needed therapy. But Governors Creek routinely denied treatment and services to patients like Seigler, according to a 2011 federal whistleblower lawsuit filed by a former nurse. "I think it's all about … [Read more...] about Neglected: Florida’s largest nursing home chain survives despite legacy of poor patient care

They awoke from a lifelike dream that they were at a barbecue, could even smell the smoke. There was smoke. It was just after 4 in the morning. The dorm was on fire.
