An additional 8 million get disability benefits from Supplemental Security Income, the disability program for poor people who don't qualify for Social Security.
For someone to qualify for Social Security disability benefits, a doctor must determine that the disability is severe enough to prevent an applicant from working. Last year there were 7,400 people on waitlists who were dead, according to a report by Social Security's inspector general.
Jim Axelrod takes us to the Black Hills of South Dakota: . Mount Rushmore's designer once said he hoped the faces would remain unchanged "until the wind and rain alone shall wear them away."
As Luigi Del Bianco's grandson Lou explained to us, the chief carver was the master craftsman in charge of refining the expressions in the faces.
I got the grant, and that was the beginning of the work that now, 33 years later, has become the story of inherited breast cancer and the beginning of the project that became BRCA1.
The way this worked in those days was, if you were a young professor, applying for the first time for a large grant, you were quite frequently asked to come to the NIH and give what was called a "reverse site visit."
Democratic lawmakers shut out of governance for much of this year now find themselves at the center of high-stakes negotiations with President Trump that could achieve a prize they have sought for nearly a decade: permanent legal status for hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants.
The deep fear among Democrats skeptical of the negotiations is that, in exchange for permanent protections for “dreamers,” Trump will win broad new powers and resources to enforce immigration laws that go beyond adding more agents or technology along the border.
For tens of thousands of Rohingya Muslims, an informal fleet of small wooden fishing boats has meant deliverance from what they say is an indiscriminate assault on their villages by the Myanmar army.
Around 400,000 Rohingya have arrived in Bangladesh in less than three weeks and people are still coming, by land as well as by sea, after attacks by Rohingya militants sparked a fierce counteroffensive by Myanmar’s army.
There are chips that run various processes for computers, from the supercomputers used to create models for global warming to personal computers, internet servers and smartphones.
They are rethinking the very nature of computers and are building machines that look more like the human brain, where a central brain stem oversees the nervous system and offloads particular tasks — like hearing and seeing — to the surrounding cortex.
Sebastian Vettel is taken out on the opening lap after an explosive start to the Singapore Grand Prix! Lewis Hamilton leads from Daniel Ricciardo.
We're 15 minutes away from the start of the Singapore Grand Prix, which of course has the added spectacle of being a night race. We've never actually seen the Marina Bay street circuit tested in the wet before, so this race could throw up a few surprises.
At least 11 people were injured Saturday after a sports car struck a crowd of pedestrians near a car show in Boise, Idaho, CBS affiliate KBOI-TV reports.
Police say an investigation into the crash is underway and will be forwarded to prosecutors for possible charges.
In a self-written bio accompanying an article on HuffPost last week, he wrote, “Lots of competitors hate [my] work, but that’s their problem.”
(Henley said Deutsch resigned from the paper last September; she declined to offer details.). On the other hand, Newsday gave Deutsch some benefit of the doubt: “On the law enforcement beat, reporters may encounter people who lead lives that are not reflected in public records or other sources of information that would help locate them,” it wrote in an unbylined article summarizing its investigation. “It is possible that some on our list were difficult to find or reluctant to respond to our review because they are undocumented immigrants, those battling or recovering from addiction or people involved in or around illegal activity.”
I guess we’re making up for that lengthy taste of fall we had earlier this month, as we stay on the warm and humid side through midweek and beyond.
Keep reading for the forecast through midweek…. Tomorrow (Monday): Partly sunny skies remain in the forecast, still with a slight chance for a pop-up shower or two in the afternoon.
I wanted to know if, more than two years after the “Mad Men” finale, he had plotted out a second act worthy of his talent.
In this category he mentioned Jon Stewart and Hannibal Buress, whom he had seen perform the night before as part of Dave Chappelle’s run of shows at Radio City Music Hall. He also noted his “Mad Men” colleagues Elisabeth Moss (“Lizzie”) and John Slattery (“Slatty”), the directors Greg Mottola and Edgar Wright, and Rosamund Pike (“Roz”), his co-star in “High Wire Act,” a yet-to-be-released thriller written by Tony Gilroy.
Of course, by this time Cassini was nothing but a mist of atoms floating among the swirling cloud tops of Saturn, but the effect in the room was like seeing a heart monitor flatline.
The celebration of Cassini’s fiery death began with a tour of the CDSCC site, including a tour of the telescopes and the command centre, a walk about the tiny-but-amazing visitor’s centre (which includes a chunk of volcanic basalt, the only piece of moon rock on display outside the US) and presentations from Nasa and CSIRO staff.
Scholl and her older brother Hans were members of the White Rose pacifist resistance group, which produced and distributed anti-Nazi leaflets.
It was a daring act of public protest, and it cost them their lives; they were executed soon after at the hands of the German secret police. On February 18, 1943, the Scholl siblings tossed hundreds of the pamphlets into the atrium of the University of Munich.
Equifax Inc. announced Friday afternoon that two top technology executives had left the company and been replaced immediately, as the company continues to deal with the fallout from a massive data breach.
Mauldin had become a focus in the wake of the data breach, which Equifax said last week affected up to two-thirds of U.S. adults, after internet sleuths noted that interviews with her had been taken down and that her education was in music composition.
As if an Equifax data breach affecting more than 140 million customers wasn't unsettling enough, consumers must be doubly vigilant following news of the massive mishap, experts warn.
Given that Equifax is providing free credit monitoring and credit freezes in wake of its data breach, the call may sound legitimate, the agency warned. The Federal Trade Commission warned Thursday that it expected a new wave of imposter scams, with con artists posing as representatives of Equifax "calling to verify your account information."
