Q. I have received reminders to renew my EHIC 111. Will there still be a reciprocal right to treatment whilst in other European countries if Brexit ever gets completed?

Mr. Kemp, a Republican, accused Ms. Abrams of running “the most dishonest campaign Georgians have ever seen.” Such was the slugfest tenor on Tuesday in the first televised debate between the major candidates in the Georgia governor’s race. Voters nationwide are watching the contest closely for a historic impact — Ms. Abrams, if elected, would be the first black woman in the United States to become a governor — or for the next in a streak of Republican wins in governor’s races going back to 2002. Polls have the two candidates neck and neck. Both are hoping to convince voters that they … [Read more...] about Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp Renew Attacks in Georgia Debate

Freyer Globe Staff August 13, 2018 Rhiana Kohl has faced many sad surprises in the seven years since her husband, Alfredo Bartolozzi, first showed symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. But perhaps the biggest shock was finding out that even health care workers often don’t understand this common illness. During a hospital stay, an X-ray technician didn’t grasp that Bartolozzi couldn’t follow directions. In an emergency room visit, staffers asked factual questions of a stricken man who didn’t know where he was.And Bartolozzi’s doctors, even after ruling out every other explanation, could not bring themselves to diagnose Alzheimer’s.
