Now, a new study published in the journal Radiology suggests that it may actually cause brain
shrinkage and the loss of valuable brain cells.
Researchers looked at brain scans from over 600 people age 55 and older with type 2 diabetes.
They found that the longer a patient had the disease, the more brain volume loss occurred, particularly
in the gray matter. Gray matter includes areas of the brain involved in muscle control, seeing and hearing,
memory, emotions, speech, decision-making and self-control.
“When you lose brain cells, you lose the capacity for more complex thoughts and
memory,” says Dr. R. Nick Bryan, lead author of the study, as well as chair and
professor emeritus at the Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania.
A loss of brain cells is how diseases like Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia are defined.
“Diabetes may be a risk factor for things like Alzheimer’s disease,” says Bryan.
"We didn’t prove that, but we suggest that.”
Doctors also suggest that this study may help prove that high levels of insulin and sugar
may be toxic to the brain.
Another story posted on TIME magazine's website is also stating the Diabetes Ages the brain 2 years!

Singer, songwriter and record producer Smokey Robinson was born William Robinson Jr. on
February 19, 1940, in Detroit, Michigan. Growing up in a rough neighborhood, Robinson started
out singing in local groups. In the early 1950s, he formed the Matadors, which later became the world-famous group The Miracles. A chance meeting with record producer Berry Gordy Jr. led to a contract with Motown Records as well as
an important working relationship.
The Miracles scored their first big hit with "Shop Around" (1960) and developed quite a following
with their energetic R&B sound. The group has numerous hits, including "You Really Got a Hold on Me"
(1962) and "I Second That Emotion" (1967). Robinson also worked behind the scenes, composing and
producing for The Miracles and other Motown artists, such as Mary Wells and The Temptations. His work
contributed to the success of Motown Records and helped advance the popularity of soul music.
Solo Career Robinson went solo in 1972, creating a more mellow sound for himself. Often associated with
romantic soul music, he released such successful albums as A Quiet Storm (1974) and Touch the Sky (1983).
The mid-1980s were a difficult time for him as he battled a drug addiction. Robinson openly discussed his cocaine
problem as well as many other personal topics in his 1989 autobiography, Smokey: Inside My Life. He has credited
his recovery from substance abuse to his religious faith.
Robinson went on to win his first Grammy Award as a solo artist (best R&B vocal performance) in 1987,
for the song "Just To See Her" from the album One Heartbeat. His later solo recordings included Double Good Everything (1991) and Intimate (1999). He took his work in a new direction in 2004,
releasing a collection of music that reflected his spiritual beliefs entitled Food for the Spirit.
In Recent Years
Still a popular entertainer, Robinson continues to perform live. He also has been busy as a public
speaker, talking to groups about his personal experiences. Exploring new business opportunities,
Robinson formed a food company called Smokey Robinson Foods, which includes a line of ready-to-eat meals.
In 2006, Robinson was selected to be a Kennedy Center Honoree for his contributions to the arts and
American culture and received an honorary degree from Howard University. That year, he also put out a
new album, Timeless Love, which offered Robinson's own take on several classic songs, such as Cole
Porter's "Night and Day" and the Gershwin brothers' "Our Love Is Here to Stay."
A dedicated entertainer, Robinson continues to record new music and maintain a busy tour schedule.
In 2009, he released the studio album Time Flies When You're Having Fun. In 2012, Robinson gave an
impressive performance on the television competition Dancing with the Stars. Around the same time,
The Miracles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
CHICAGO (AP) — President Barack Obama‘s hometown of Chicago plans to name a high school after him.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Thursday announced plans to build Barack Obama College Preparatory High School. The selective enrollment high school will be open for the 2017-2018 school year. Chicago Public Schools says its enrollment will be 1,200 students.
Emanuel and school officials say Chicago needs more competitive selective enrollment schools. They say nearly 16,500 students applied for 3,200 seats this school year. The Obama school will be the 11th selective enrollment high school in Chicago.
School officials say the Obama school will open with a freshman class of 300 students. Subsequent grade levels will be added in following years.
Chicago Public Schools is the nation’s third-largest school district, with 400,000 students in 658 schools.
Tavis Smiley‘s influence is undeniable and Hollywood has taken notice.
On April 24, Smiley became the 2,522 star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And surrounded by famous friends
and family, Smiley shared details about his path to success.
“When I was a kid, I hated my name,” says the Midwesterner whose childhood pipedream was to play first base for the Cincinnati Reds. “Tavis Smiley. I got teased so much. It was Travis, Tayvis and Smiley became Smelly and ‘Oh, you’re Tavis Smelly.’ So I hated it as a kid. But, lo and behold, years later you’re a TV guy and it works.”
“1996 was a seminal year in my career,” says Smiley, whose the Smiley Group Inc. headquarters are inconspicuously perched adjacent to a closed-down burger joint in the artsy Leimert Park section of South Central Los Angeles. “Within months of writing my book I was in the White House as a guest of Bill Clinton and then as a regular on Tom Joyner’s radio show on NPR. So now I’m talking to 10 million people every day around the country. A couple of months after that, BET gave me my own latenight show. At that point I realized, well, maybe the political campaign thing of mine is done.”
In 2002 Smiley became the first “person of color” in the history of the United States to have his own daily show on NPR, and then, in 2004, become the first African-American to have his own daily show on PBS. That same year, he became the first and only American — “forget my color,” he notes with a quick flick of the wrist — to host daily talkers on both PBS and NPR.
“The whole thing was always about public service for me, and I saw delivering commentary on issues affecting people as a means to provide that service. My goal has always been to empower people with information that can help them live better lives.”
“There is so much work to be done, and I never lose sight of this,” says the infectiously optimistic media maven. “I say this with humility, that I have quietly become — we have quietly become — the longest-running show in the history of latenight television hosted by a person of color. Arsenio [Hall] lasted five years his first time around. I’m at 11.”
Smiley tweeted the following to his Twitter followers:
As you may know my husband and I run a nonprofit organization called the 'No Dope Express'
where we fight against substance abuse, drugs and gangs in the Chicagoland area; so when I
read this story the first thing I thought was 'This could have been me'.
Like many, Leonore Draper was fighting a hard fight to change Chicago's youth and keep them away
from the streets. On this past Friday, God decided see has fought a God fight and called her home.
Here is the story as seen on NewsOne and in the Chicago Sun Times
Thirty-two-year-old Leonore Draper was shot in the arm and chest inside a car in the West Pullman
neighborhood this past Friday night after leaving a fundraiser for an anit-violence organization.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office says she died after being taken to Advocate Christ Medical
Center in Oak Lawn. Friends and relatives said she had just attended a fundraiser for a youth anti-violence
organization called Project Orange Tree.
Draper was one of at least three people killed in Chicago since Friday evening. More than two dozen other
people were wounded in shootings across the city.
Family members on Saturday said they were in shock and confirmed Draper had just attended
A Charitable Confection, a fundraiser on the Near South Side to raise money for teen anti-violence group Project Orange Tree.
The group was formed by King College Prep students after the shooting death of Hadiya Pendleton last year.
Draper’s brother Adrian Murrow called his sister extremely “outgoing” and “easy to get along.”
“She wasn’t the type of person that would ever try to mess you up ever. She was always trying to put a smile on your face,” Murrow said from his home in Houston.
Murrow said his sister often came to visit him, but he never had a chance to visit her Chicago home in West Pullman.
He said she had lived in the neighborhood for a short time. Draper was on the committee that organized Friday’s
anti-violence event, according to Jocelyn Delk Adams, a friend and fellow organizer of the event.
She was also an employee of the Chicago Public Schools, serving as a budget analyst, CPS spokesman
Joel Hood said. On her Facebook page Friday, Draper reminded friends and family of the charitable event.
She was also active with a charity raising awareness about the impact of HIV and AIDS on women.
Draper was also active in raising funds for multiple sclerosis in large part because her husband, Jason Draper,
lives with the illness.
In case you missed the drama this weekend, this year's NBA Playoffs having taken a turn down civil rights road.
The LA Clippers organization and its owner, Donald Sterling, are now on notice that the purported
recording of him making racist comments to his mixed-race girlfriend, V. Stiviano, are in fact legitimate
and roughly one hour in length. This info comes from the attorneys for Stiviano.
Mac E. Nehoray — of the Nehoray Legal Group — has issued a statement saying:
“My firm represents Ms. V Stiviano who is a named defendant in a civil action brought by Rochelle H. Sterling
in the Central Civil Superior Court, County of Los Angeles.”
“This office understands that the currently released audio tape of approximately 15 minutes is a portion of approximately one
(1) hour of overall audio recording of Mr. Donald T. Sterling and Ms. Stiviano, and is in fact legitimate.” “Ms. Stiviano did not release the tape(s) to any news media.”
“Due to the present litigation and its absurd allegations, which Ms. Stiviano vehemently denies, Ms.
Stiviano and this office have no comments at this time.”
The Clippers gathered at center court before a 118-97 Game 4 loss in their first-round series against
the Golden State Warriors and took off their Clippers warm-up shirts and left them there. They then warmed
up wearing inside-out red shooting shirts that did not display the Clippers name or logo. During the game, players
wore black arm or wrist bands and black socks.
River said he wasn't on-board with the black socks protest, but said he was aware of it and was fine with his
players taking the stand.
"I knew about it. I didn't voice my opinion," Rivers said after the game. "I wasn't thrilled about it, to be honest.But if that's what they want to do, that's what they want to do."
During a 45-minute team meeting on Saturday, Clippers player voiced their anger about the tape and
discussed various options of protest, including boycotting the game.
"[We] talked as a team about everything," Chris Paul told ESPN. "Tried to keep internal, everything we decided to do
has been together as a team."
In the Clippers' locker room before the game, "We are one" was written on the dry-erase board, which
was the message players and coaches talked about before taking the court.
"We're going to be one, everything we do, we do it together," Paul said. "Stay together, play ball, we worked hard
to be where we are, can't imagine going through this with anyone leading us other than Doc."

It was reported on USA TODAY Myrick was abducted from his Atlanta, Georgia driveway while he played with
his pet Chihuahua on his lawn.
A stranger pulled up, lured him to his car with an offer of money, then grabbed the boy when he got close enough
and sped off, according to police. But young Willie made it clear from the get-go… He wasn’t going out like that.
He was cursing at me telling me to shut up and didn’t want to hear a word from me,”
Myrick told WSB-TV. “He said if I told anyone, he would hurt me, like in a bad way.”
But it was the indirect assistance from Grammy-award winner, Hezekiah Walker, that helped his young
fan escape his captor. For THREE straight hours young Willie sang, “Every Praise,” the artists popular gospel song.
Willie did not let the constant threats from the kidnapper daunt him in any way. He just kept on singing.
Finally, having had enough, the kidnapper let him out of the car at East Point.
“He opened the door and threw me out,” the 10-year-old said. “He told me not to tell anyone.”
When word of young Myrick’s survival got out, his church celebrated the victory on his 10th birthday.
Even Hezekiah Walker, who heard about the incident, showed up; flying in from New York to Atlanta to celebrate
with the child in the church’s crowded sanctuary.
“It’s just emotional to me because you never know who you’re going to touch,” Walker told ABC News.
“I just wanted to hug him and tell him I love him. I really believe God spoke through me to save that young man’s life.”
Here are the song’s lyrics:
Every praise is to our God.
Every word of worship with one accord Every praise every praise is to our God.
Sing hallelujah to our God Glory hallelujah is due our God Every praise every praise is to our God.
God my Savior God my Healer God my Deliverer Yes He is, yes He is
"I really believe that God spoke through me to save that young man's life," Walker said.
The man who abducted Willie is still on the loose. Police have released a sketch and are asking anyone with any information to call CrimeStoppers at 404-577-TIPS.
From heart attacks to cancer to diabetes, proven studies about the health benefits of wine are some of
the most happily-received pieces of health news out there. Now, a new study is suggesting that there’s yet
another reason to the health wonders of wine.
Those [with healthy kidneys] who drank less than one glass of wine a day had a 37 percent lower risk of having chronic kidney disease than those who drank no wine,” said study author Dr. Tapan Mehta, a renal fellow at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center, in Aurora.
We witnessed in the book of John Chapter 2 Verses1-11, Jesus turns water to wine. However this was a celebration;
a wedding to be exact. So saints, drinking is okay and can improve your health in fact.
But like with all things, you just have to do it consciously. When you do things in moderation it is not a sin.
But when you do things in excess, that is when the sin occurs.
As it states in the good book of Ephesians 5:18"And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be
filled with the Spirit"
According to the NIH, there are seven additional steps you can take every day to help maintain
the health of your kidneys:
Get your blood pressure checked at least once a year and follow the advice of your doctor to keep that number healthy
If you have diabetes, control your blood glucose level
Maintain a health cholesterol level
Aim for less than 1,500 milligrams of sodium each day
Eat heart-healthy foods
If you smoke, quit
“Those with chronic kidney disease who drank less than one glass a day had a 29 percent lower risk
of cardiovascular events [than those who drank no wine],” he added.
Exactly why wine might do that is not known for sure, Mehta said. Drinking moderate amounts is linked with
lower levels of protein in the urine. In those who have kidney disease, higher protein levels in the urine are
linked with an increased risk of progression of kidney disease.
While the study suggests wine is protective against kidney disease and, in those with kidney disease,
heart disease, ”we cannot make any firm cause and effect conclusion,” Mehta said. While the study found
an association, it was not designed to prove a cause-and-effect relationship.
According to experts, these new findings are consistent with previous research.
Red Or White?
The benefits of red wine tend to be more regularly discussed, as opposed to its white counterpart.
However, Mehta couldn’t say from the study if red wine is better than white, as those who responded
did not say which type they drank, just if they drank wine and how much they drank.
He suspects, however, that red would most likely be better, as it has been linked previously to being
