    WHILE the cost of living adjustment (COLA) means more money for Social Security beneficiaries, it could also cost them. This year Social Security saw the largest cost of living increase in forty years - 5.9%. 1The COLA increase may put some beneficiaries at riskCredit: Alamy Experts are now estimating a COLA of somewhere between 9.8% to even as high as 11.4% depending on inflation. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics recently said the US inflation rate increased to 9.1% in June 2022, compared to a year before. Where the COLA ends up depends on the consumer price index for urban wage earners and clerical workers (CPI-W) in the third quarter.

    We don’t know who came up with the idea for onion rings, but whoever you are, we mean this from the depths of our hearts: thank you. The very first recipe for onion rings appeared in a 1933 issue of The New York Times in an ad for vegetable shortening. The ad instructed readers to dip raw onion rings in milk before dredging them in flour and then deep-frying them in oil. However, it is also said that a restaurant chain in the early 1920s was the very first to make onion rings. So, while it’s not entirely clear who the genius was that developed the first recipe for onion rings, we’re grateful, because onion rings — and all fried onions — are awesome. That must be why June 22nd is National Onion Ring Day. They’re crispy, crunchy, and savory, making them the perfect snack for parties and movie nights and they’re so easy to make, too. Whether you’re gluten-free, avoiding oil, or looking for something different, you can bet that we’ve got a delicious, crispy onion ring recipe for...

    You are probably more vulnerable to being a victim of crime, either online or physically, than you think, but there is a new online tool that could reduce your risks. Security.org cites its own research that says the typical American household has a one-in-five chance of being a victim of a property crime. The average American has over a three-in-10 chance of having their identity stolen at some point in their life. More Business News The group recently launched a free tool called, “What’s My Security Score.” Its security score is kind of like a credit score, and it not only identifies your vulnerabilities, but suggests ways to plug those holes. It’s based on both physical crime risk — local crime rates, home security, safety habits such as locking car doors — and cybercrime risk. It also factors in known data by age and other lifestyle factors. When it comes to being victimized by cybercrime, we remain our own worst enemies. Despite being one of the most-repeated warnings during the online age, password security remains one of the...
    Exercise away from busy roads  As we age, the brain starts to change. By the age of 60, the frontal lobe and hippocampus, areas involved in cognitive function and encoding new memories, start to shrink, as does the white matter, the bundles of nerves that carry signals between brain cells. The brain also produces fewer chemical messengers, including the feel-good hormones dopamine and serotonin, which can hasten depression and cognitive decline. We’re also at growing risk of diseases of the brain, such as Alzheimer’s. However, regular exercise is beneficial because it seems to work at a cellular level to increase the number of mitochondria (power houses) in brain cells. ‘But keep away from areas of high pollution if you want to get the health benefits,’ says Ian Mudway, a senior lecturer at the School of Public Health at Imperial College London.

    Rice has been cultivated for thousands of years, with evidence in China dating back to 9,000 years ago. To this day, 90 percent of the world’s rice is produced in Asia, with the famous rice paddies of Indonesia and Vietnam changing the face of the landscape. Half the population in the world—far beyond the boundaries of one continent— relies on rice as a staple food. There are so many delightful dishes that feature rice. Of course, we can adventure into East Asia with its bibimbaps, sushi rolls, and rice cakes. We can delve into Indian cuisine and pair our rice with curries and dals. The Cajun food of Louisiana loves to put rice with gumbo, jambalaya, and red beans. We put rice in burritos, risotto, and pilaf. We know it as cereal, noodles, and even alcoholic beverages. So many countries have special rice puddings. Suffice it to say, this little grain is renowned the world over. Rice is a great to eat, no doubt, but there are also other useful ventures to be taken with this much-appreciated grain. While...

So how best to get rid of those Covid kilos? Over the autumn months I put on a few pounds, creeping into the overweight category (my BMI, which for years had been around 24, was 25). I tried a new approach to slim down for Christmas: a short-term ‘keto’ diet — where you cut your consumption of carbs to less than 50g a day, while eating plenty of healthy fats, such as olive oil, oily fish and nuts, plus lots of veg. It forms the basis of my book, The Fast 800 Keto, which has just been published. A 2021 survey by Public Health England revealed that nearly half of...

    (CNN)A lawyer for Mark Meadows says the former Trump White House chief of staff was the recipient of a PowerPoint document detailing ways to undermine the count of the 2020 election but did nothing with it, according to the New York Times. The 38-page document, which is among thousands of pages of materials Meadows provided to the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, was initially circulated by a retired Army colonel who was working to challenge the results, according to the Times. CNN has not independently verified the contents of the PowerPoint.Phil Waldron, a retired colonel who spread misinformation about election fraud in the presidential election, told the Times that he circulated the PowerPoint among allies of former President Donald Trump, including lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Waldron told the Times that he did not directly send the document to Meadows, but that it was possible someone on his team had passed it along to the former chief of staff.

    Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen opened up about the 1984 car crash that changed his life and, in many ways, made him into the artist that he is today.  Allen joined the rock group when he was 15 and every member shot to fame over the next decade. However, on New Year’s Eve in 1984, he was driving his Corvette when he was involved in a horrible accident that left him without his left arm.  Speaking to ABC News, Allen explained that, when the car flipped, he was thrown through the sunroof. However, before that happened, his seat belt came undone in the violent crash and his arm ended up getting stuck inside of it. As a result, when he was thrown, his left arm stayed behind.  TOMMY LEE'S INTERVIEW ENDS ABRUPTLY WHEN HOSTS ASK WHICH OF HIS EX-LOVERS WAS 'BEST' Drummer Rick Allen performing on stage during a live concert appearance with Def Leppard on October 11, 1987 (John Atashian/Getty Images) Fortunately, Allen was determined to continue with his career and his bandmates stuck by him.

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken condemned “packing courts” as a threat to democratic systems and governance, during a trip to Latin America that could put him crosswise with a left-wing campaign to enlarge the Supreme Court. “Consider a country where a leader is elected in a free and fair election and then sets about chipping away slowly but surely at the pillars of democracy. ... Now, imagine that leader then seeks to use the levers of democracy to pass anti-democratic reforms — eliminating term limits, packing courts, firing legislators,” Blinken told an audience at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito in Ecuador. “That’s the story of more than one democracy in our hemisphere. And it’s one of the ways that democracies can come undone.” Blinken condemned that panoply of power grabs just days after a commission established by President Joe Biden to study adding seats to the U.S. Supreme Court questioned “whether Court expansion would be wise.” Republican officials hailed the remark as a boon for their case against the expansion campaign, while Blinken situated his comments within a broader...
    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more Three new studies were conducted by urologists to find the impacts of a plant-based diet on men’s general health. This can be a sensitive topic as many men fear going plant-based because they do not want to experience adverse side effects. The studies mainly focused on PSA levels, a marker that can indicate prostate cancer. They showed that eating a mainly plant-based diet had lower levels of PSA than those eating a high meat diet. Dr. Ramasamy said, “Traditionally, men have thought that lots of protein, specifically animal protein, was necessary to maintain testosterone levels and indirectly related to maintaining erectile function.” Dr. Mouzannar said, “Studies have shown that more aggressive prostate cancer can be associated with high meat intake. In addition, there is growing evidence that animal-based food has been associated with greenhouse emissions and all-cause mortality risk. Several other publications suggest that fruits and vegetables may have a protective effect against prostate cancer.” Other studies done by the urologists targeted the erectile benefits of a plant-based diet.

    CBS The cast of ‘Star Trek: Enterprise’ On this day, twenty years ago, the first episode of “Enterprise” first aired. As a franchise, “Star Trek” had been on an unbelievable run. Since 1979, there had been a new Trek movie in theaters every three years or so. And starting in 1987, there had been a “Star Trek” show airing on television — sometimes two at the same time.  So, when Paramount’s UPN network aired the first episode of a new Trek series, there were high hopes. Reviews were generally good for the first episode, “Broken Bow,” which aired on Sept. 26, 2001. Unfortunately, due to a number of reasons, the show ended after just four seasons, which made it an outlier. All of the ’90s Trek shows which proceed “Enterprise” lasted a full seven seasons.  Despite that, the show broke new ground for “Star Trek” and is remembered as one of the most well-liked of all the series, and one which some fans are determined to bring back. So, to celebrate 20 years since the debut of the show, here...
    (CNN)Someone must be watching Netflix's parade of mindless thrillers like "Kate" (never mind why), but even allowing for that, it's hard to imagine a more bare-boned plot as excuses for stylized violence go. Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays the movie's eponymous female assassin, in a mash-up loaded with old-movie ammunition that still comes away firing blanks.Aside from Winstead's recent role as Huntress in the "Harley Quinn" movie, the most obvious point of reference would be "D.O.A.," the 1950 film noir starring Edmond O'Brien (subsequently remade with Dennis Quaid) in which a fatally poisoned man spends his remaining hours trying to unravel the mystery of who killed him.In similar fashion, Kate -- a Tokyo-based killer for hire -- ingests a slow-acting poison, giving her a day to track down who was responsible, slashing and shooting her way through much of Japan. She delivers the bad news to the boss who raised her, played by Woody Harrelson, who can play this sort of appealing hitman in his sleep.Kate's search for those behind her demise brings her into contact with a teenage girl (newcomer...
    Demonstrators display signs and a banner during a "No Climate, No Deal" march on the White House, in Washington, DC, June 28, 2021.Evelyn Hockstein | Reuters Hurricane Ida made landfall over Port Fourchon, Louisiana, as a Category 4 storm with winds of 150 miles per hour on Sunday, leaving more than one million Louisiana utility customers are without power. The entire resort city of South Lake Tahoe was ordered to evacuate on Monday. More than 20 people were killed as flash floods in New York and New Jersey caused massive flooding. Those who are living through one of these crises made worse by anthropogenic climate change, are likely consumed with survival — evacuating, cleaning out debris, rebuilding. On the other side of immediate safety concerns, however, is often a new resolve to combat the common factor in these disasters: Climate change. But the size of the problem can make meaningful action seem impossible. Can a single person do anything to meaningfully contribute to climate change relief efforts? Most certainly, say climate change experts. Here are a few simple things you...
    Some experts on U.S. election law have been warning that the most dangerous part of Republican voter suppression bills isn't the ways in which they make voting more difficult — it is the ways in which they seek to change the administration of elections. Liberal Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent and legal scholar Neil H. Buchanan sound the alarm in articles published this week, and both of them offer some possible remedies. Sargent explains, "There is a critical way Congress can minimize the possibility of another January 6: by addressing glaring legal vulnerabilities in the presidential electoral process that encouraged Donald Trump's movement to try to overturn his loss, creating the conditions for the worst outbreak of U.S. political violence in recent times. We're talking about revising the Electoral Count Act (ECA) of 1887. That may sound dry and unexciting, but it would shore up hidden weaknesses that made the 2020 breakdown possible." Following the 2020 election, then-President Donald Trump and his attorneys tried to pressure fellow Republicans into helping him overturn the election results in states that now-President Joe...
    We all know that a will is a document that collects the last wills of a person. But beyond that, in legal terms, the only thing we know is that it is a really complex legal process. However, with the pandemic, many have been more interested in this document and how to prepare it. The high death rate from Covid-19 has resulted in 85,186 transmissions of home ownership by inheritance in Spain, the highest figure recorded by the INE since 2007. It is important to inform you of how to make a will, since it is the only legal way to record our wishes. In general, it is a simple and inexpensive procedure, but there are a series of costs, procedures and steps that must be followed. Also, keep in mind that there are several types of wills. The most common are the notarial or open will, that is, it is done before a notary; and the holographic will, which is a handwritten will.

    A WARNING has been issued after hackers were able to target texts to access cell phones and download dangerous apps to steal information. Experts say the cyber criminals have worked out ways to bypass two-factor authentication via the one-time codes sent as text messages. 1Cyber criminals are said to have worked out ways to bypass two-factor authenticationCredit: Getty Two-factor authentication is becoming increasingly popular and can involve you needing a password and a passcode that's texted to you. It protects your account by requiring an extra level of verification before logging in - on top of your password. But short Message Service, or SMS, is well known for its poor security, according to techxplore.com. One of ways cell phones can we hacked is via a process known as SIM swapping.

Check often with your phone operator that your phone number is still assigned to you. Most read...
