It's important for people to help support the elderly and the helpless, said evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
In an advice column published Friday, Rev. Graham was asked by a person who works at a nursing home why people tend to not visit their elders.
"I've worked in a nursing home for almost 20 years, and the hardest part of my job is watching people dump their relatives here and then never come back to visit them. Why are people so insensitive? Even if someone has dementia they still deserve our love, don't they?" inquired the person. more >>
Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is trailing his Democratic contender Hillary Clinton in support among Hispanic registered voters, but Clinton is nearly statistically tied to Trump if the margin of error is taken into account among English-dominant Hispanics, according to a new poll by Pew Research.
Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, has a 66 percent to 24 percent advantage over Trump among Hispanic registered voters, but her Republican rival Trump is almost even with her among English-dominant speakers with 41 percent support, compared to her 48 percent, when the margin of error of 6.7 percent is taken into account, the poll found, which means they are statistically even.
Before the 2012 election, the then Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney had the support of 21 percent Hispanic voters, and in 2008, the then GOP candidate Sen. John McCain had 23 percent support. more >>
A bird was tested positive of the West Nile virus in Santa Cruz County, California. Public health officials said that this is the first confirmed case of the West Nile virus in the county this year. The dead bird was found in the Upper Westside of Santa Cruz, near Nobel Drive, which means that virus-infected mosquitoes are most likely living around the area. The Santa Cruz' Mosquito and Vector Control District has sent their technicians to the area to look for any infected mosquitoes or breeding ground.
So far, there have been no reported human cases of the West Nile virus in the state this year. Health officials advised the public to report dead birds or squirrels that may have possibly acquired the virus in the area by contacting (877)968-2473 or visiting westnile.ca.gov.
The WNV (West Nile Virus) is a virus that humans can get through mosquitoes. Transmission of the virus will lead to an infection in which humans can either have few or even no symptoms at all. Some symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, muscle pain, nausea, loss of appetite, vomiting and rashes. The infection usually surfaces between 2 to 15 days. The virus can also cause neurological symptoms. more >>

Babies infected with the Zika virus could still appear with normal-sized heads, a recent study revealed.
Though the presence of Zika among babies is determined through microcephaly or babies with very small heads, a study published on The Lancet noted that this is not the case all the time since newborns with normal-sized heads could still be infected.
