Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Studies have found that the more nuts people consume, the lower their death rates from all causes and especially from heart disease and stroke.  Nuts contain those very beneficial Omega 3 fats which we all need.

Enjoy a small handful every day of the eight healthiest for your system – walnuts, almonds, cashews, pecans, hazelnuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts, and Brazil nuts.

Let’s all go nuts for nuts!

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
Retirement Plan Still Working Exception

What is the still working exception?

If you have a qualified employer retirement plan, you generally need to start taking your required minimum distributions (RMDs) no later than April 1st of the year following the year you turn 70½. This is your required beginning date or RBD. Certain employer retirement plans, however, may have a “still working exception” for their employees who reach 70½ but are still actively working for that employer.

The LA Opera Talk, “The Marriage of Figaro”
in Woodland Hills

Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at 6:45 pm

From the breathless opening notes of the overture to the touching final curtain, Mozart’s comic masterpiece brilliantly bucks the conventions of his time to deliver an ageless message of love and forgiveness.

Admission is free. No reservations are required.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Olive oil is beneficial for you in so many ways.

But once a bottle of olive oil is opened, it can become rancid after a while especially with opening and closing it consistently. Buy the smaller bottles so you

will not harm your body in this way.

Consider that buying those very large bottles of olive oil may not be such a bargain after all!

SENIORS MORE VULNERABLE TO LOTTERY SCAMS

An 84-year-old may have won a record-setting lottery, but other seniors are finding themselves winning a different kind of lottery – the kind that loses them money.

It’s called a lottery scam, and data show that senior citizens are more likely than any other age group to fall victim to it and other fraudulent transactions, especially those promising prize promotions.   READ MORE HERE

WHAT IS THE MOST NUTRITIOUS
VEGETABLE YOU CAN EAT?

We all know that Americans should be eating more fruits and vegetables. But there’s a big difference between eating a handful of carrots or a tangerine, and munching on some leafy greens. The CDC recently ranked 47 of America’s most common fruits and vegetables, and 41 out of 47 tested were determined to be “powerhouse” sources of nutrition.
