Monica Briceno makes herself up in her apartment before learning that her eviction has been postponed... 
Monica Briceno makes herself up in her apartment before learning that her eviction has been postponed in Madrid April 5, 2013. Briceno is a 70 year-old separated woman living on a pension of 364.90 euros ($475) and suffering from Alzheimer's disease. She has an advanced cognitive impairment and an eviction from what was her home for the last 40 years could cause irreparable damage. Clinical studies prove that to remove an Alzheimer patient from her usual place of residence and routines can accelerate the progress of the disease. She's been living in a cheap rental apartment (old rental system) in Madrid since 1974. In 2001, after her legal separation, a judge gave her single tenancy rights. She has always complied with her payment obligations but the homeowner now claims the house for personal use. Authorities have postponed her eviction until the 24th of May, while her unemployed son Christian tries to relocate her through social services to a place where she can be properly taken care off.

A daffodil flower bulb is pulverized by a scientist with the use of nitrogen at the University of Leiden April 16, 2007. The University of Leiden uses the daffodil bulbs to extract the chemical galantamine, which is one of the drugs used in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. Dutch flower growers are testing new ways to produce more and better quality flowers and to exploit every part of the plant as they compete against cheaper rivals seeking a slice of a highly lucrative industry.
