How your selfie could affect your life insurance

A selfie reveals more than whether it's a good hair day. Facial lines and contours, droops and dark spots could indicate how well you're aging, and, when paired with other data, could someday help determine whether you qualify for life insurance.

Transactional President

WASHINGTON - As President Donald Trump flew to Palm Beach Thursday for Easter weekend, there was a lull in his first 100 days -- a chance for Washington to reflect on how his presidency is likely to evolve.

Schwannomas of the spine are nerve-sheath tumors

DEAR DR. ROACH: For several months, I've been suffering with severe lower-back pain while standing. It radiates down my leg, into my buttocks. Several weeks of physical therapy was not helpful, and I can't take many medications because I have atrial fibrillation. An MRI showed arthritis in my spine, but also several schwannomas on the nerve sheaths. What information do you have on schwannomas of the spine? -- D.B.

Dealing with your dog’s teen phase

Dear Didi: We have a Labradoodle that is about to turn 7 months old. He has been full of energy and a major handful so we hired a personal trainer when he was 5 months old. The lessons were wonderful focusing a lot of intervention, management and basic obedience. All of a sudden, we are noticing a defiance streak. He knows basic commands and it was proven in his final exam with the trainer. This week we ask for a sit and he looks at us with this "i dare you" face and runs around the house avoiding us. Other ...

Obama claimed ‘all’ of Syria’s chemical weapons eliminated

The Obama administration claimed that it negotiated with Syria and Russia to eliminate "100 percent" of Syria's chemical weapons. After President Barack Obama's 2012 "red line" warning to Syria about using chemical weapons, Syria launched a chemical attack in August 2013. But U.S. military action was avoided by the alleged Russian/American/Syrian diplomatic accomplishment, achieved without "firing a shot." Here's what we were told:

Trumpcare was for CEOs

Diarrhea not likely caused by arteriovenous malformations

DEAR DR. ROACH: After a capsule endoscopy for unexplained chronic diarrhea and gastrointestinal bleeding, I was told that I most likely have an arteriovenous malformation in my small intestine. Since diagnosis, getting further help with this has been frustrating. Some doctors have suggested that the diarrhea and pain could be vascular-related, while others dismiss that idea. Several times over the years, I have worked in the cramped crawlspace under my house, and subsequently each time had some of my worst episodes ever of bloody diarrhea the next day.

Bee: Great world leader?

One might think that Fortune would want to keep a sober reputation as a magazine for business executives. But it made a fool of itself. It came out with a list of "The World's 50 Greatest Leaders," and on that list was once-a-week late-night TBS "comedy" scold Samantha Bee.

Fox News covers ‘inconvenient’ rape

On March 16, a 14-year-old girl was allegedly pushed into a boys' bathroom at Rockville High School in Maryland and raped by two other students during school hours. Police arrested two freshmen who recently arrived from Central America, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez and 17-year-old Jose Montano. Sanchez, a Guatemalan, has a pending "alien removal" case against him. Montano, from El Salvador, is a minor, so his immigration status was not released.
