Exercise improves memory and cognition, and helps stave off dementia.
Strength training and working your leg muscles has been shown to have a strong impact on brain function and memory.
Among seniors, engaging in medium-to-high intensity exercise can slow brain aging by as much as 10 years.

Pfizer tax advantages

Mar 19, 2016 - 0 comments

What Pfizer is trying to do is known as a "corporate inversion." In this case, Pfizer, an American company, is merging with a company based abroad. The result of the merger is a company with an address in another country even though the majority of shareholders are still based in America.
Pfizer apparently doesn't want to pay the $35 billion in taxes it would owe in America. I don't think that's right.
You can bet that Pfizer would continue to overcharge Americans for prescription drugs. Since 2014, the pharmaceutical company has hiked the prices of seven of its top selling drugs by an average of 39 percent.
Pfizer also charges 12 times as much in the U.S. under Medicare for these drugs as it charges in Ireland, where it’s claiming a new address for tax purposes.
