–Donald Trump’s forgetfulness, and uses of filler words and non-specific nouns, correlate with the early signs of Alzheimer’s disease observed in Ronald Regan
“The threshold for probably being a psychopath is 30 points,” said Olbermann, adding Trump may “still finish life as high as 36 points, since two of his questions pertain to criminal record and violation of parole, and there’s plenty of time for him on both.”
Olbermann used the checklist ― a clinical tool that helps to diagnose psychopathy ― to conduct a similar assessment on Trump in July 2016. The then-presidential candidate scored equally high numbers. The difference between then and now?
“In a president, the problem escalates to, you know, the possible end of the world,” Olbermann said.

Alex Jones is suddenly super sorry about that whole Pizzagate thing. What gives? Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go
“Alex Jones, a prominent conspiracy theorist and the host of a popular right-wing radio show, has apologized for helping to spread and promote the hoax known as Pizzagate.
The admission on Friday by Mr. Jones, the host of “The Alex Jones Show” and the operator of the website Infowars, was striking. In addition to promoting the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, he has contended that the Sept. 11 attacks were inside jobs carried out by the United States government and that the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., was a hoax concocted by those hostile to the Second Amendment.
The Pizzagate theory, which posited with no evidence that top Democratic officials were involved with a satanic child pornography ring centered around Comet Ping Pong, a pizza restaurant in Washington, D.C., grew in online forums before making its way to more visible venues, including Mr. Jones’s show. And its prominence after the election drew attention to the proliferation of false and misleading news, much of it politically charged, that circulated on platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Mr. Jones made the apology to the owner of Comet Ping Pong, James Alefantis, on video, reading from a carefully worded statement that emphasized how widely the theory had spread before he weighed in on it. He said that Infowars had “disassociated” itself from the story in December and had taken down the majority of broadcasts and videos that mentioned it. Mr. Jones also said that two reporters the show had worked with “are no longer with us,” although he did not identify them or discuss the exact nature of their work with Infowars.”*

“Prof Robert E Kelly has returned to BBC News to talk about his unexpected viral fame last week when his children crashed his live TV interview to the amusement of millions of people who later watched the clip. Prof Kelly, an expert on South Korea, was joined in the follow-up video with his wife, Jung-a Kim and children Marion and James.”
He confirmed to the BBC’s James Menendez that he was, despite online speculation, wearing trousers during the interview.
I got the lab work on my biopsy. I had a Seborrheic Keratosis removed from left shoulder. It was large. The biopsy was not cancer.
Seborrheic keratosis (seb-o-REE-ik ker-uh-TOE-sis) is one of the most common noncancerous skin growths in older adults.
A seborrheic keratosis usually appears as a brown, black or light tan growth on the face, chest, shoulders or back. The growth has a waxy, scaly, slightly elevated appearance. Seborrheic keratoses don’t become cancerous and aren’t thought to be related to sun exposure, but they can look like skin cancer.
Seborrheic keratoses are normally painless and require no treatment. You may decide to have them removed if they become irritated by clothing or for cosmetic reasons. Mayo Clinic
I also had a lesion on top of my head. A biopsy of it came back as “Basal Cell Carcinoma.”
Basal cell carcinoma is a type of skin cancer. Basal cell carcinoma begins in the basal cells — a type of cell within the skin that produces new skin cells as old ones die off.
Basal cell carcinoma often appears as a slightly transparent bump on the skin, though it can take other forms. Basal cell carcinoma occurs most often on areas of the skin that are exposed to the sun, such as your head and neck.
Most basal cell carcinomas are thought to be caused by long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight. Avoiding the sun and using sunscreen may help protect against basal cell carcinoma. Mayo Clinic
My doctor is arranging for me to see a surgeon (Dermatologist).
These videos, in this “Ten With Jim” PlayList, are short videos. They are about ten minutes long. This is a fast way to keep up to date with what is going on with Jim.
Twenty minutes work this morning – JFK from a new sheet of stamps and his official protrait by Aaron Shikler – done after his death. Would love to set this loose and see it go viral. Any suggestions for the captioning – many other themes possile. I like the similar stance. I just bought the sheet of stamps and this art was on the side of the pane of Forever stamps then the Time magazine arrived today. The side by side images suggested themselves to me. OK – whaddya think?
I just got Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15055 on my computer.
Windows 10 is working for me. But I think I would just like to get a new touch screen Chromebook that does Android apps and just give up Windows.
I am going to 76 years of age this month. I just want things to be simple now .. I can give up game playing and a few other things .. I just want to surf the web, do my email and a few other simple things.
I just heard from my doctor’s office. The lab results are back and the place on top of my head is a Basal cell carcinoma. They are going to get me an appointment with a Dermatology doctor in Fort Worth.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. The two most common types are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. They usually form on the head, face, neck, hands, and arms. Another type of skin cancer, melanoma, is more dangerous but less common.
Anyone can get skin cancer, but it is more common in people who
- Spend a lot of time in the sun or have been sunburned
- Have light-colored skin, hair, and eyes
- Have a family member with skin cancer
- Are over age 50
You should have your doctor check any suspicious skin markings and any changes in the way your skin looks. Treatment is more likely to work well when cancer is found early. If not treated, some types of skin cancer cells can spread to other tissues and organs. Treatments include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy (PDT), and biologic therapy. PDT uses a drug and a type of laser light to kill cancer cells. Biologic therapy boosts your body’s own ability to fight cancer. ICD-List Diagnosis Code
I just wait now for the doctor’s office to inform me of my appointment date. I was told that it might be five or six weeks before my appointment.
