How you feel is as much a guide as heart rate

DEAR DR. ROACH: I learned from the American Heart Association's website that when exercising, one should stay between 50 percent and 85 percent of his or her maximum heart rate. But my cardiologist just shrugged off this warning and said that as long as one is not out of breath, he or she doesn't have to worry about this "less than 85 percent" formula. It also intrigues me that sometimes we see people in their 70s or even 80s running marathon races. In that case these "reckless people" certainly will exceed their 85 percent MHR. Doesn't that ...

Paul, steer clear of Speakership

The honor of it all aside, Rep. Paul Ryan would do well to decline the speakership of the House. For it is a poisoned chalice that is being offered to him.

Which type of flu shot is best?

DEAR DR. ROACH: For the 2015-2016 flu season, we find a trivalent vaccine (three influenza virus), quadrivalent vaccine (four influenza virus) and high-dose trivalent recommended for seniors 65 and older. As a member of the senior group, I would like your opinion on the best choice. Why do they still supply the trivalent when the quad protects against four flu viruses? The high-dose trivalent is only for seniors, but the quad seems to be a better choice. This is confusing; please help us understand. -- J.H.

Changing a dog’s name

DEAR DIDI: My husband and I recently adopted the most amazing dog from Pets N Pals in Lathrop, CA. We absolutely adore him but we are not fond of the name he came with.

Comcast rolls over for Hillary

In June, Comcast executive vice president David Cohen hosted a $2,700-a-plate fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. On the first weekend in October, the NBC Universal in-kind contributions really kicked in: a star turn on "Saturday Night Live," a Sunday morning interview with Rev. Al Sharpton, and a Monday town hall meeting on the "Today" program.

SF is haven for felons

As he runs for re-election in November, San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon faces no opposition. The cozy position was unlikely, when you consider that Gascon arrived in the city as a pro-death penalty Republican from Arizona in 2009 after then-Mayor Gavin Newsom picked him to be chief of police. Today he's the rare prosecutor who has sent a message to career criminals in the country illegally: San Francisco will make the feds really work to deport them.

Facing the recurrent vertigo of meniere’s disease

DEAR DR. ROACH: My wife is suffering from Meniere's disease, a condition that causes, at times, severe vertigo and disorientation. Although she's never actually been diagnosed with the condition, after several months of numerous tests on her heart, brain, ears, eyes and balance, the doctors "think" it's Meniere's disease. It came upon her rather suddenly, which is another puzzling aspect of her condition.

Who even wants to be Speaker?

Rep. Tom McClintock of California is about as conservative a Republican as you can find in Congress. As a state legislator in Sacramento, he was a well-known budget hawk. In the House, writes The Almanac of American Politics, he has been "a faithful conservative vote, though an occasionally nettlesome one to GOP leaders seeking to limit internal dissent." Former California Gov. Pete Wilson has such marked antipathy for McClintock that he took the unusual step of supporting a GOP challenger in McClintock's latest re-election bid.
