Social Security – With the 2 percent funding cut extended for another year, the system will lose billions. I don't believe most of the people desire this. Those who benefit the most are those who earn more than $40,000 a year. The few dollars that one gains each pay period isn't worth jeopardizing the system for future generations. A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll conducted a year ago found that 60 percent of adults who aren't retired expect to get nothing – zero -- from Social Security in their older age. They're mistaken. As misinformation and mistrust grow ...

Not so long ago, we remarked that this country's war on cancer, initiated by President Nixon more than four decades ago, had in many ways been a disappointment, with the death rate from various kinds of cancers still high. But in some areas, there have been great advances, and a new study released this week proved what many have believed all along: that colonoscopies are extremely effective in reducing the incidence of colo-rectal cancer. In patients tracked as long as 20 years, the death rate was reduced by more than 50 percent.
Why do Americans so often vote against their own economic interests? Because money isn't everything. Values matter, too, especially when your values tell you that cuts in government spending won't bring new pain to hard workers like you.
As the price of gasoline approaches $4 a gallon -- with many saying it will reach $5 -- I was thinking recently of a column I wrote a few years ago during a similar spike in prices.

Here in Kershaw County there are hundreds -- perhaps thousands -- of people suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, the cruel malady that attacks the brain. There are millions of Americans across the country who have fallen prey to Alzheimer's, yet research efforts to find a cure have been consistently disappointing over the last few decades. But two researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston have been successful in essentially growing Alzheimer's in a petri dish, and scientists hope that's going to be a breakthrough in studying possible new treatments for the disease.

WASHINGTON -- Now, now, let's not panic.
Hollywood's most recent spate of pirate movies, the Pirates of the Caribbean series starring Johnny Depp, illustrates the age-old stereotype of "the pirate." Depp is the perfect swaggering pirate, his full head of dreadlocks wrapped in a cloth, waistcoat belted with heavy leather, on occasion an 18th century skirted frock coat and a tricorn hat. Pistols and swords in his belt within easy reach for a fight. Soft leather boots folded down at the top. Swashbuckling at its best. Depp embodies the definitive pirate style.
One of the best things about being an educator is the opportunity to share in the success of students' educational careers. Watching students learn to read, speak a foreign language or pass an AP exam are highlights that I've shared with numerous young people over the years, but none of them comes close to what I consider one the best highpoints I ever experienced: the excitement that I saw on the faces of the students from North Central High School years ago when I informed them about the improvements being made to their school as part of Phase 1 ...

Sneezing, itchy nose and watery eyes -- each a symptom of allergic rhinitis.
Women have made great strides since Title IX banned sex discrimination in any educational program receiving federal funding. This piece of legislation signed by President Nixon in 1972 encouraged thousands of young women, once sidelined, to lace up their shoes, grab their gear and change history.
One of the nation's most recognized Roman Catholic Church-affiliated universities is extending employee benefits to spouses in same-sex marriages. The move comes in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court decision not to step into the gay marriage debate and appears to contradict current Catholic teaching that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."
On Monday, news broke that Catholic leaders might be warming up to homosexual church members. Rather than use the language of disorder and sin, the Synod of Bishops on the family's midterm report said that "homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community."
I've traveled often throughout my life, but my recent 4,000-mile road trip across the West took me through some of the most gorgeous terrain I've ever seen.
