‘I Said Goodbye to Everything.’ What It Was Like to Live Through Hurricane Irma
It’s just after dawn on Saturday and Miami Beach is empty. There are no tourists picking their way to the surf, no cheery hotel lights, no thumping music from car radios. The air is gauzy. Everything is a ghostly metallic gray. It’s 14 hours before Hurricane Irma, the biggest storm ever recorded in the Atlantic, is supposed to pass through this spot. The National Weather Service warns it could be the most powerful hurricane in living memory. The Big One everyone’s been waiting for. It could be catastrophic in its devastation, the governor says.

How to Protect Your Brain Against Alzheimer ’s
A few weeks ago, Big Pharma giant Merck canceled the clinical trial for its latest “promising” Alzheimer’s drug. Why? It was a total flop.
