The effect affects people differently

Yup, it sure does. Seeing an incorrect word like effects affects people differently. When it’s accompanied by a misspelled name, I just shrug my shoulders. After all, this is Yahoo! Shine and I’ve come to expect mistakes like that:

It’s no surprise to me that the writer still can’t remember how to spell Dr. LaRocca’s name or that well-being needs a hyphen. What is shocking is people with multiple sclerosis are exercising entire battalions. I think that an exercise regimen would be sufficient:

    The story must have been phoned in (like in the Old Days), and the writer just wrote what he heard.

      That could explain the “effects” instead of “affects,” but we can’t overlook the possibility that the writer is grammatically and spelling impaired with a wobbly vocabulary.
