Debt Collectors Target the Elderly :: BlackPressUSA

"American consumers are profoundly and negatively affected by wrongful debt collection tactics on a daily basis," said Lisa Stifler, a CRL policy counsel. "No one should be forced to deal with illegal collection activity, and debt collectors should not be allowed to exploit seniors' vulnerability in order to make a profit."

No one - and especially our older Americans - deserves to become financial prey. As families look forward to the holiday season, remember to help older loved ones remain free from profiteers. Love them enough to help them defend their financial rights.

Concerned about nuclear pact, Israel weighs action against Iran: ...

The nuclear pact being negotiated between Iran and world powers is unpalatable to Israel, and may hasten the prospect of a military confrontation with Tehran, The Jerusalem Post reported on Saturday.

As the globe's six big nuclear powers inch toward a Nov. 24 deadline to strike a comprehensive deal with Iran, sources within Israel's government told the publication that the proposal to curb Tehran's nuclear ambitions would all but guarantee the standoff would continue.

Outlines of the deal would restrict Iran's nuclear program for ten years, and cap its ability to weaponize fissile material to at least nine months, the Post reported.

Tehran has yet to indicate its agreement. However, Israeli officials told the paper that intelligence surrounding the program was still unclear over how extensive the nuclear program was, and Israel appears unwilling to take the risk.

Ebola crisis update - 21st November 2014

Since the Ebola outbreak in West Africa was officially declared on 22 March in Guinea, it has claimed 5,420 lives in the region. The outbreak is the largest ever, and is currently affecting four countries in West Africa: Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Mali. One person in Spain and three people in the USA have recovered; one person in the USA has died. Outbreaks in Nigeria and Senegal have been declared over. A separate outbreak in DRC has also ended.

Following announcements made in the last weeks, deployment of international aid is slowly rolling out in the three main countries affected: Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. However, there is little indication that current efforts to increase capacity to isolate and take care of suspected and confirmed Ebola cases will address needs sufficiently.
