Can Treating Hearing Loss Help Prevent Dementia?
Johns Hopkins Medicine experts concluded that one in three cases of dementia
could be prevented if people managed just nine lifestyle factors — one of which
is managing hearing loss during midlife (between age 40-65).
The other eight include increasing childhood education and exercise,
maintaining social engagements, reducing or stopping smoking, and
management of depression, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity.
Hearing loss is linked to social isolation,
depression and accelerates brain atrophy -
which are all contributing factors of dementia.
Hearing loss is treatable!
Don’t let your hearing loss go untreated, if
you’re ready to treat your hearing loss and
be proactive about dementia, we can help.

LOSE THOSE LOSERS LICKETY-SPLIT A K Q J 10
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist K
A.N. Onymous said, “A winner listens; a loser just waits until it is their turn to talk.” AKQ5
Bridge winners know that some losers cannot wait; they must be eliminated immediately. 875
In today’s deal, how can South avoid four losers in his four-heart contract after West
leads the spade three? Also, what were West’s more-effective leads, and what do you WEST EAST
think of the auction? 87643
I agree strongly with South’s two-heart positive response. Here, over three hearts, North J983
would have done best to sign off in three no-trump, but that could have been really silly AJ2 AJ93
because the club suit might have been wide open.
Given the trump break, West would have defeated the contract by leading the club ace
(or her low heart, but that would not be recommended). Then East could have sat back 10 9 6 3
and waited for three trump tricks to fall into her lap.
West led a spade in the optimistic hope that her partner could ruff in quickly. She chose
the three as a suit-preference signal for clubs, the lower-ranking of the other two side 9
Q 10 8 7 6 5 4
Now, though, declarer led a second high spade at trick two and discarded one club
loser. Then South played a third spade. East would have done best to ruff with her heart 10 7
ace and shift to a club, but she ruffed low. South overruffed, crossed to the board with
a diamond and led another spade: ruff, overruff. Now declarer played a trump and got KQ4
home with an overtrick, his only losers being the rounded-suit aces.
