retirement is something we all look forward to, but with so much information out there how do you know if you're making the right decisions in regards to social security, roll overs, investments, the whole nine yards. tackling some of that for us today, two premier retirement
9:20 am
they are referred to as nevada's retirement brothers. it's question day. we'll direct those to nick. >> make sure they go to the smart one. >> we got these retirement questions. we got question number one. i plan on retiring in the next five years. should i pull my money out of the stock market when it takes a dive or leave it where it is? >> go ahead. >> if you're planning on retiring in five years, th question is taking money out of the stock market, that's a difficult question. we would have to do an analysis on the portfolio and review everything to make that determination. rather than just giving an answer to that simple question. >> that was a political answer. >> he gave you no answer at all. here is the thing. if you're five years away from retirement it shouldn't be a big dip that has you exit the market. it should be that you're getting so close to retirement. you got to ask yourself do i want to lose my money when i'm
9:21 am
left to recover losses or do i just want to make sure i protect what i have? most people who come into our office are coming in saying i see retirement around the corner. i don't want to take big, excessive risks. i remember what 2008 was like, i remember 201, because they worked during the technology bubble burst. they worked during the sub prime mortgage mess. but they have many future years worth of contributions to make up for the losses. if you're five years away ask yourself that question. do you have enough years of contributions to weather a big market decline? and if you answer that question no, because i'm retiring soon there is your answer. >> i'm the king of terrible analogies. once you're ahead, you don't want to take all the spins. >> we feel like that viewer watching that show, saying what are you doing? as advisers sometimes people come in and we look at that and they're pressing their luck over and over again and we're thinking you're just right
9:22 am
you already can accomplish your retirement dreams. why are you pressing your luck on this? let's protect what you have. >> i like that. >> we can take a -- the rest of the show is -- okay. all right. >> how far in advance do i need to meet with a financial adviser to craft a full retirement plan? some this. some people very seldom getting an early start on it. when is a good time? >> what's your answer? how far in advance? >> i say depends on where you are on your stage of life. if you are -- for instance for us we specialize in people in 50 and older. so someone is going to retire in the next ten years, 50 or older, we are the adviser that specializes for that particular niche. if someone is 30, 40, they need a different adviser that is focused on maximizing growth
9:23 am
risk. we're not as good as other people out there that might specialize in that. if you're retiring an adviser like us is the way to go. >> that was a good answer. my answer, if you haven't had that plan yet, today. call our office today. it's never too soon to have a retirement plan. >> very smart. question number three. if i retire and begin receiving my pension benefits, pensions i wish i had them, can i still work with the pension benefits? >> yes, you can. you have to take into consideration the tax consequences of that retirement income, that pension coming in. if you have a significant job or significant income coming in, sometimes if you defer that pension benefit a little while longer, it will grow, the monthly payments the income would grow more later on. if you say no i want to work part time and a opinions, just to supplement my pension and possibly social security income you can absolutely do that. we like to say what are the tax ramifications of that? does your pension plus a job make your social security 80%
9:24 am
sometimes we'll find that that part-time job is actually costing you more in taxes than it's actually creating in income. >> might as well sit back and relax. >> exactly. that's why we like to evaluate that. >> let's get the last question in. how do i calculate if i have enough money to retire? >> 45 seconds to answer that question? great question. because that's the question everyone asks. have i saved enough to have money last the rest of my life. we'll look at you one on one, and help you determine how long your money can last. we'll be honest with you and say hey, you know, this is actually how much income you could realistically expect the rest of your life. >> we have to know how much you spend. is your house paid off? how much does it cost you to live every month? as soon as we know that we can tell you your number. >> these all are questions from viewers. we want to make sure they know that they can e-mail you with these questions. >> absolutely. >> and the e-mail is right there
9:25 am
brothers.com. make sure we get some of your questions answered. hard answers. easy answers, hard questions. i don't know. >> great answers to great questions. >> there we go. i like that. great having you, gentlemen. if you would like to learn more about how to retire well abe and nick make it easy. call the number on the screen. if you want a three copy of the book seven secrets to the happy retirement, the number is on your screen. for more information about the retirement brothers v website ashton strobelt.com. they have their own radio show that airs on three different stations. they're famous. thanks, shawn. time for your senior care moment, sponsored by the spotlight senior services guide. did you know medicare fraud errors and abuse cost taxpayers $60 billion per year? the nevada senior medicare patrol exists to help medicare beneficiaries and their families, and caregivers, detect

welcome back to "the morning blend." are you at risk of a heart attack? this morning we dive into the details on what exactly can trigger one. and how you can reduce your chances of having one. >> dr. keith boman is a cardiologist with wellhealth cardiology and joins us more. how are you, doctor? >> great. glad to be here. >> talking about a positive subject today, something we all have to shine a light on, because this ends up affecting so many of us. 43 seconds in the united states, every 43 seconds someone has a heart attack. >> wow. >> explain what a heart attack is and what the difference is between a heart attack and stroke. >> essentially a heart attack to the heart is the same as a stroke to the brain. >> okay. >> the same process. so what we talk about today with the heart would apply to someone
9:30 am
the brain and not the heart. >> okay. >> so heart attack is essentially a problem with circulation to the heart. as you know, the heart has its own arteries that supply it. and they're very small, 3 millimeters. very small. >> wow. >> there is four or five of them, but they're very small, just like the end of your pen. and over a period of time as we get older we develop plaque in those arteries. and generally the plaque you won't know it's there, dsn but as the plaque grows, sometimes one of those plaques splits or cracks, just as if you were to touch your finger. what would happen if you cut your finger? you get a clot. what happens inside the core theiry artery is the body doesn't know it's your finger or it's inside your heart. it doesn't know the difference. and a clot forms on the plaque. and when that happens, it occludes the art require, so
9:31 am
we're only talking 3 millimeters. >> we have a model here. this is a -- this is blown up for scale for us. >> this is really blown up for scale. >> i'm thinking -- you think of the heart, you think it's these huge arteries. >> this is really quite impactful the way this is presented. the first presentation here is a normal artery. you can see it looks clear. there is no yellow plaque. plaque is made up of calcium, fat and other components, which you can see o to time. >> wow. >> but -- >> it's where you want to be. >> this is where you want to be. this is where you don't want to be. so the process that occurs that i was explaining is the plaque builds, as you can see here. it doesn't cause a problem. then what happens is the cells that cover the plaque split or become unstable. and the body thinks you've cut yourself. and so it sends clotting material -- >> trying to protect itself. >> exactly. doesn't know the difference.
9:32 am
we didn't know this 25 years ago. we didn't know what really caused the heart attack per se. as you can see from the final presentation here, the red clot then blocks the artery. so now there is no blood that goes past that clot, and the heart tissue that's distal to that clot doesn't have any oxygen, doesn't have any nutrients. remember, the heart doesn't rest, it's always beating. so it doesn't take long for the heart to say give me some oxygen. give me some nutrients. what happens is now it goes into a state called ischemia, not getting enough oxygen. and if that lasts long enough, five, ten minutes, you start to have cardiac tissue that dies. that's a heart attack. >> wow. my goodness. a lot of information. >> we're trying to keep it simple. >> that's what it is. more than i've known about heart attacks. >> it's really quite simple, but quite complex.
9:33 am
but it's a plaque and a clot that occludes a small artery in the heart that causes the heart attack. >> that is what is going on in the inside. and thank you for that explanation because i thought it was practical today. what's going on on the out snide how do i know if i'm having a heart attack? >> some people don't know. there is a certain percentage, and it's low, that can have a heart attack and don't have any symptoms. let's talk about the symptoms, because i think that's where we're going. generally you will have chest pain. re the number one reason why people go to the emergency room. and just by history, we can get a pretty good idea, is it your heart or not. let's talk about the chest pain that's consistent with heart attack that we're talking about. the pain is usually at rest. you're usually sweaty. the pain itself is generally sub sternal in the heart area but doesn't have to be. it usually radiates to both arms, the left arm, the neck, or
9:34 am
>> oh, wow. >> and there is usually some nausea associated with it. it doesn't go away in five minutes. most people describe it as a heavy pressure. but it doesn't come and go usually. it's usually continuous. now, the key is to get an electrocardiogram because ekg will show the ischemia. and the diagnosis is easy at that point to make. and in some cases if a paramedic is called they can do an ekg site. so we know in the emergency room that they're going to bring that person in and he's having or she is having a heart attack and do appropriate therapy. >> technology has come a long way. >> it has. >> that's pretty -- >> as long as it works. >> when it works. so yes. >> i was talking to you in the waiting room before we walked in and you said since the 1980s, there has been tremendous advances. >> oh, yeah. >> the information available is really -- >> when i started practicing, i
9:35 am
we didn't know that this clot formation was what was causing the heart attacks. it took another ten, 15 years to figure out the physiology of how that was happening and how plaque cracks or becomes unstable. generally you don't know you have these plaques. and these plaques don't just occur in the heart, they occur in all the arteries but more significant in the heart because arteries are so small and doesn't take much. >> it's unbelievable how small they are. i want to talk about reduce our risk of having one. >> there is something you can't do, family history and genetics very important. but there are certain known risk factors. and i think we talked about them on a frequent basis. diabetes if you have it. obese it needs to be controlled. hypertension, smoking is probably the worst in terms of accelerating this plaque formation. >> don't do it. >> don't do it. >> it's bad news. >> it is, by far the number one
9:36 am
in your life if you have it. >> it's incredible. powerful information. great having you. want to be on the left of that, not the right. >> these left. >> that left. know the signs, and risks, prevent a heart attack. if you want more on wellhealth cardiology head to the website on your screen. a couple community events to tell you about as we head to break. it's customer appreciation night at the west wind drive in movie theater. movies, including the new ghost busters, angry birds movie, central intelligence with kevin hart. and i think i said angry birds, but i'll say it again, angry birds. gates open at 6:00. >> in support of louisiana flood relieve the lsu alumni foundation is hosting a fundraiser at louisiana kitchen. it begins today at 4:00 p.m. and
