U.S. WORKS ON RESCUE PLAN.
It is reported top ccongressional and White House officials, stunned by the house of Representative's 228-205 rejection of a massive rescue plan for the US economy on Monday, scrambled on Tuesday to structure a new bailout plan.
Rival presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama urged congress Tuesday to redouble efforts to save the bailout. The House vote triggered the biggest oneday sell-off on Wall Street since the 2001 attacks. Both Mr.McCain and Mr. Obama urged their party legislators to stay at work until an acceptable plan is assembled.
"The first thing I would say, "Let's not call it a bailout, Let's call it rescue" Mr. John McCain said.
"I assure our citizens and citizens around the world that this is not the end of the legislative process" Mr. Bush said.
SENIOR CITIZENS.....SUNBATHE EVERYDAY TO STAY HEALTHY.
Wisdom comes with age, and so do joint-aches, short sight, forgetfulness and digestive disorders. As one gets on in years, even routine activities like climbing stairs become painful tasks. Parkinson's disease, dementia, urinary infections and arthritis are common maladies of old age. As most patients suffer from arrested mobility, doctors should consent to visiting them at home.
Fifty per cent of elderly people have psychological problems. They suffer from Alzheimer's disease, insomania and depression. More falls and fractures in the elderly occur due to the effect of sleeping tablets, than slippery bathroom floors.
A Geriatric specialist said "Exposure to the sun can go a long way in enhancing good health, so we advice senior citizens to have sun-bathe everyday".
SECOND OPINION ON HEALTH.....INTERNET IS THE PLACE FOR MANY.
When a lady learned she had a large fibroid tumor in her uterus, she went online.
There is nothing new in that, of course. The intrepid and the adept were going to to te Web for health information as long as the 1990's, well before search engines made it accessible to a wider audience.
These days, that is pretty much everyone. At least three-quarters of all internet users look for health information online., according to the Pew Internet and American Life Project; of those with high-speed connection, one in nine do health research on typical day. And 75 per cent of online patients with chronic problem told the researchers that "their last health
search affected a decision about how to treat an illness or condition," according to a Pew Report released last month.
Reliance on the Internet is so prevalent, that "Google is the defacto second opinion" for the patients seeking further information after diagnosis.
