It's been a rough month for stocks. Take these steps to safeguard your portfolio

Finance
Many investors are breathing a sigh of relief following Monday's market rout and subsequent rally. That doesn't mean you should get too comfortable just yet. Even as the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained about 650 points in the past two days, it is still down 5.1 percent for October. That makes it the worst month since January 2016. The S&P 500 has dropped 6.9 percent this month, the worst since September 2011. Financial experts emphasize that does not mean you should panic. But you should double check your strategy. ...

Vitamins: What to Take, What to Skip

Health
Folic acid, which prevents neural tube defects such as spina bifida in babies, is found in fortified breakfast cereal, dark green vegetables, legumes, citrus fruit juice, bread, and pasta. Bottom line: Getting 400 micrograms a day of this B vitamin, and 600 if you are pregnant or lactating, is a no-brainer. That amount should come from food, supplements, or both, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). More research is still needed as to whether folate may help combat certain cancers and heart disease. Let's block ads! (Why?) Food - Health.com

'To some, Maddie was just a junkie': Obituary gives new take on drug addiction

'To some, Maddie was just a junkie': Obituary gives new take on drug addiction

Health
Madelyn Linsenmeir was a mother, sister and friend, who was "hilarious, and warm, and fearless, and resilient." She was also an opioid addict. Linsenmeir was a drug addict for 12 years and, at what her sister said were some of her darkest points, she would sometimes panhandle for money. She lost custody of her young son because of her disease. On Oct. 7, the 30-year-old died in the hospital while in police custody, according to her sister, Kate O'Neill. O’Neill does not want Linsenmeir to be remembered for her addiction. Her surprisingly honest obituary she wrote for a local Vermont paper is getting widespread attention for its warmth and candor. “It is impossible to capture a person in an obituary, and especially someone whose adult life was largely defined by drug addict...

LOS ANGELES -- The Milwaukee Brewers' bullpen roared back to life in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series and can now further its influence in Game 4 on Tuesday night. The Brewers can move one game from their first World Series appearance since 1982 with a victory in a Game 4, and will try to do it on a bullpen day. Left-hander Gio Gonzalez will start the game, but the relievers are expected to get to work early, just as they did when Gonzalez pitched just two innings in Game 1.

"And if we got a good start (from Jhoulys Chacin) and we're in good shape, Gio was always going to be the guy." Chacin gave the Brewers 5 1/3 scoreless i...
