    1. 5 Warning Signs of Pancreatic Cancer

      5 Warning Signs of Pancreatic Cancer

      Although pancreatic cancer can be treated if caught early, the signs are often subtle, and the disease is usually missed until it is in later, more serious stages. But there are some warning signs that you can watch out for.

      The pancreas has two main jobs in the body: to make juices that help digest food and to make hormones, such as insulin and glucagon, that help control blood sugar levels. The digestive juices are made by exocrine pancreas cells, which is where about 95 percent of pancreatic cancers begin. The disease accounts for approximately 3 percent of all cancers and about 7 percent of all cancer deaths, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS), and the risk goes up with age. About two-thirds of patients are at least 65 years old, and the average age at the time of diagnosis is 71, according to the ACS.

      New pressures for perfection contribute to rise in teen suicide

      Emma Pangelinan’s room embodies everything that is pure and good about teenagers, yet the quiet in the air is so heavy it nearly brings you to your knees.

      Two rows of hard-earned gleaming softball and soccer trophies testify to the past. A blue-and-gold UCLA pennant on the wall promises a wonderful future.

      But the athletic, bright, always-helpful 13-year-old who slept in this room, who grew up in this home of faith and family, is gone forever.

    10. Long-Term-Care Insurance Gets a Makeover

      Long-Term-Care Insurance Gets a Makeover

      Once you or a family member starts having trouble with everyday activities, such as preparing meals and showering alone, you might need some assistance. It could be help from a home health aide or a move into an assisted living facility or a nursing home. Planning for this can be a fraught exercise. But there are new types of long-term-care insurance that might help.

      Researchers estimate that more than half of today’s 65-year-olds will require long-term care at some point, at an average total cost of $138,000. Most will need help for less than two years. But one in seven Americans turning 65 today will face more than five years of disability, with potentially dire financial consequences. Medicare covers only short stints in a nursing facility. Medicaid can fill the gap, but only after you’ve depleted most of your assets. But to afford an assisted living facility ...

    13. Tips to get the most out of your tax refund

      Tips to get the most out of your tax refund

      In the rush to file tax returns, Americans leave millions of dollars in deductions on the table. H&R Block’s Tax Institute director said common mistakes are easy to avoid and will save you money.

      • Many Americans file under the incorrect status. Instead of “single,” many Americans can file as “head of household.” That allows you to deduct more of your income and pay less in taxes.
      • Apply for the Earned Income Credit. One in five eligible people for the credit don’t claim it. The qualifications for the credit change nearly every year.
