Alzheimer’s Association President Thanks Christie

On behalf of the 350,000 New Jersey individuals and families coping with the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease, I would like to thank Governor Chris Christie, who on June 22, 2011 signed legislation intended to help New Jersey address the long-term needs of its individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s by creating a 15-member Alzheimer’s Disease Study Commission.

Time For A Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty

July 16 marks the 66th anniversary of the first nuclear weapons test explosion. The United States’ test, code-named “Trinity,” was exploded in the desert of New Mexico and ignited the nuclear age. The bombing of Hiroshima on August 6 and Nagasaki on August 9 were followed by some 2,050 nuclear tests worldwide, with over half (1030) conducted by the United States.
