(NAPSI)—One of the most common reasons people 65 and older go to the hospital is heart failure. Jim Olsen is just one of the approximately 5.7 million Americans who are living with heart failure today, and his constant readmissions to the hospital did nothing to alleviate his symptoms and fear as he felt progressively worse. Were it not for his twin brother John, Jim might not be here today. John is also a heart failure sufferer, but while the brothers are identical in looks and even nearly identical in their troubling heart issues, the care each brother received as his heart failure got progressively worse was as different as fire and ice. Since John’s diagnosis of heart failure in 1999, he and his cardiologist adequately managed his symptoms for more than a decade, but when they became progressively worse, his cardiologist knew it was time for more-advanced care and referred him on to the University of Florida Health Shands Hospital. The Shands team was working with more-innovative technologies to help heart failure patients, and for folks like John who are too old to be considered for a transplant, the referral became instrumental in his long-term prognosis.

(BPT) - In the U.S., about 14 million people suffer from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) or clinical depression in a given year. Most people think MDD is just being sad. The truth is that depression is more than saddened mood; it is a constellation of emotional, cognitive and physical symptoms. These symptoms include loss of interest or pleasure, significant changes in weight or appetite, trouble sleeping or sleeping too much, lack of energy, restlessness or slowed thinking or movements, feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt, difficulty concentrating, or indecisiveness, and recurrent suicidal thoughts or actions. If you suffer from multiple depression symptoms nearly every day, it can be hard to feel like yourself.
There has to be some explanation why last year (2014) saw this huge increase in measles within the US. In the year 2000, the CDC declared that measles “has been eradicated,” as fewer and fewer cases of measles were discovered. What was different about 2014 and earlier this year? Well, granted that some cases could be caused by citizens returning from the Philippines and Vietnam, but to center the cause of a major outbreak on Disneyland is really a stretch.

The 57th annual Grammys took over television and the Internet last night. The clear victor of the evening was Sam Smith, probably best known for his song Stay With Me, who took home four awards including Song of the Year and Best New Artist. Beyoncé took home three awards, bringing her lifetime total to 20 and making her the woman with the second most Grammy wins ever (just behind Alison Krauss of "When You Say Nothing At All" fame). Kanye West, however, didn't think that was enough suggested Beyoncé should have won a fourth award for Album of the Year over Beck.

(NewsUSA) - People are not prone to change. We are creatures of habit, and even small sacrifices -- despite potentially handsome rewards -- can be difficult. Businesses are no different.
(NewsUSA) - Back in December of 2014, Congress passed a spending bill that will fund the government through September of 2015. That's good, right? No government shut-down. However, this spending bill includes yet another funding haircut for the IRS, which is probably going to make your life a little worse this tax season. This "haircut" means roughly $350 million in spending cuts.
