Our last guest is Dr. Lisa McAdams, Acting Regional Administrator for the Southwest Regional Office of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Since May, millions of people have received and are successfully using their new Medicare card. In October 2018, CMS will be mailing new cards to people with Medicare in Texas and New Mexico. Everyone with Medicare in these states should get their new Medicare cards by the end of October. Each new card will have a unique new Medicare number—instead of a Social Security number. Removing Social Security numbers will help prevent Medicare fraud. While there’s a new card and number, Medicare benefits remain the same. Receiving new cards: You don’t have to do anything to get your new Medicare card, they will be arriving automatically by mail. Find out when your card is coming: Sign up online at Medicare.gov/newcard to get emails that tell you when cards are being mailed to your area. It takes about a month for everyone in your mailing area to receive their cards.

Our guest today is Dr. Gerald Blumenthal a mechanical engineer, an industrial psychologist, Speaker, business man & the author of six books.

Over the past 35 years Gerry has been examining the handwriting of criminals.  In his latest book – SERIAL KILLERS-THEIR LIVES-THEIR CRIMES & THEIR HANDWRITING he describes the commonalities found in the handwriting of 34 serial killers.

Aside from idiosyncrasies found in their handwriting he also examined the childhoods of these killers. Contrary to many reports serial killers are not born to kill. In 99% of all cases he found that these serial killers had traumatic childhoods – Divorce, adoption and physical & sexual abuse. Bed-wetting, arson, petty theft and the killing of small animals were found in almost every case.

The most common observation was the so called – Felon’s Claw. This appears in almost every one of the 34 killers I examined. I also found the use of block capitals in the middle of cursive handwriting was a common factor.

In fact the case of Oba Chandler (murderer of a mother & her two daughters) is noteworthy because he used the felon’s claw & the block capitals in his handwriting. He was eventually caught after an alert police force in Tampa placed a sample of his handwriting on five billboards around the Tampa Bay area.

Our next guest is Dr. Carey August – Director of Anatomic Pathology at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago; Board Member, College of American Pathologists’ CAP Foundation.  She will discuss why is Cancer is the leading cause of death for American women. Many of those women live in underserved communities and have no access to life-saving screenings like mammograms or pap tests. Even worse, many more women who work hard every day, can’t afford health care at all and forgo their yearly screening to put food on the table for their family. The College of American Pathologists believes no woman should die because they don’t have access to these health screenings and health care. The good news, the CAP Foundation sponsors an innovative health education program for women who don’t have the resources or the support to receive cancer screening and care. For more information, please visit www.foundation.cap.org
