I read Catherine Watson’s article on Cuba (“The Cuba Conundrum,” Nov. 10) with interest. I found the comments on Cuba’s healthcare and its healthy children naive and misinformed. I visited Cuba for the first time last year to connect with my roots. Some of the most important items I took with me were medications: a Costco-sized bottle of Advil for a relative who has arthritis; prescription meds for another with prostate cancer; compression stockings for someone else.While I was in Cuba, people described how doctors must be bribed so you have a chance to obtain the medications you need. One told me of a newborn with several health issues, and the Cuban doctor’s recommended course of action was to collect rainwater for her to drink.Cuba has many charms — warm and friendly people, lively music, beautiful landscapes — but its healthcare is not one of them.Elizabeth Gough Advertisement Too bad, AmericansIn re: “New Rules for Cuba … [Read more...] about Letters: In Cuba, what you see may not reflect its harsh reality
Identity theft is a sad fact of life in America and threatens you when you shop online, reply to emails, use Wi-Fi outside your home and even take out your garbage. The potential threat to your savings is growing: The Federal Trade Commission reports ID theft complaints jumped about 20% in 2018 and were responsible for a big chunk of the nearly $1.5 billion that Americans said they lost to fraud last year. As with other types of crime, your risk of becoming an identity theft victim depends on your location. In some states and cities, identity thieves are far more likely to prey on a person's good name than in others. What about where you live? The Potential Threat is Growing Well, out of nearly 400 of the largest U.S. metro areas, the Boston-Cambridge-Newton metropolitan area ranks No. 129 for identity theft, according to the FTC. During 2018, residents of this statistical area, which includes Beverly, went to the authorities with 4,878 cases of stolen identities, which works out to … [Read more...] about What’s the Risk to Your Identity in Beverly?
There were to be no sudden reincarnations, nor appearances of wannabe heirs, their faces swathed in bandages. Downton Abbey ended its six-season soapy gallop at its stateliest, and with its many loose ends tied up as neatly as a child’s shoelaces on their first day of school. It was also a victory lap: the good ended well, the bad ended repentant or outclassed, and Dame Maggie Smith had not only a final arsenal of zingers, but even the last spoken line—its wry ambivalence of time and change perhaps speaking volumes for the show’s creator and sole writer, Julian Fellowes. Change—the chief theme of the show; familial, social, historical—was everywhere: characters and time itself were, as the show had emphasized from its first moment as its primary preoccupation, moving on. The challenge to individuals, as vocalized by Cora’s lady’s maid Baxter, was confronting the demons of the past that could prevent one from changing. After Lady Mary and Lady … [Read more...] about Poor Edith No Longer: The Perfect ‘Downton Abbey’ Farewell
“You think money is going to fix this,” Jimmy, a streetwise young African-American from Harlem, tells Robert Miller, a Wall Street–wise financier from Park Avenue. Miller fixes him with a dismissive stare. “What else is there?” In Arbitrage, written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki, there truly is nothing else. The film, which stars a finely coiffed Richard Gere as Miller, a hotshot money manager in a fugue state, is a morality tale wrapped in a Law & Order police procedural. And it shines an unflattering spotlight on New York’s money culture, which Jarecki knows from the inside out. (He’s the son of Henry Jarecki, a legendary metals trader, and brother of Andrew Jarecki, co-founder of Moviefone and director of the documentary Capturing the Friedmans.) Jarecki nails the details: Miller’s Park Avenue apartment, which he shares with his wife Ella (played by an elegant Susan Sarandon), springs from the pages of Avenue magazine with its … [Read more...] about In ‘Arbitrage,’ Richard Gere Shows How the Price Is Right
