"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

What is the correct pronunciation of the word "Alzheimer's" that is a mental disease? I have heard two to three pronunciations of it.

    Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60%to70% of cases of dementia.It is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and gets worse over time.The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events(short term memory loss)
