  • When a woman is healthy, she has the energy and strength to do her daily work, to fulfill the many roles she has in her family and community, and to build satisfying relationships with others. In other words, a woman’s health affects every area of her life. Yet for many years, ‘women’s health care’ has meant little more than maternal health services such as care during pregnancy and bir th. These services are necessary, but they address women’s needs only as mothers.

  • Understanding the biological basis of aging has fascinated people throughout recorded history, and is one of the great remaining scientific questions. The question has never been more important than now, as we anticipate the impact that a rapidly growing older population will have on the social, political, and medical landscape over the next 50 years. There is increasing evidence that aging involves damage to the genome, and it is certainly the case that such damage explains much of the coupling of most cancers to aging.

  • Canadians take care of their houses and gardens. They expect their neighbours to take care of their houses and gardens. In most cities and towns, municipal bylaws require homeowners to keep their property neat and tidy. Some cities require owners to shovel the sidewalk in front of their house in winter. If you rent an apartment, this is the landlord’s responsibility. Most Canadians want to eventually buy a home. When Canadians grow older, they often sell their houses and use the money from the sale to buy a condominium or rent an apartment.

  • A recent article in this journal, “The child health/family income gradient: Evidence from England” (Alison Currie, Michael A. Shields and Stephen Wheatley Price, 2007) argues that income gradients in the health of English children differ from those observed in either the US or Canada. Using data from the 1997 to 2002 Health Survey for England (HSE), Currie, Shields and Wheatley Price (CSW) conclude that English health gradients in income are small and increase little as children grow older.

  • A growing empirical literature examines the relationship between family income and child health. An article by Case, Lubotsky and Paxson (2002) (CLP) shows that, in the United States, the socioeconomic gradient in adult health has its origins in childhood. Using data from 1986 to 1994, they find that poor children are reported by their parents to be in worse health than wealthy children, and this gradient becomes larger as children grow older. These results suggest that the relationship between income and health that is observed in adulthood has its roots in childhood.

  • As the population of over 76 million Baby Boomers approaches middle age and beyond, the issue of preserving mental powers throughout greatly increased life spans has reached an almost fever pitch. There is a growing interest in—and optimism about—preserving and enhancing the brain's capabilities into senior years. With the help of powerful new tools of molecular biology and brain imaging, neuroscientists around the world have literally been looking into the mind as it thinks.

  • As network operators add new capacity, technologies and equipment to their networks, they often find themselves with older network elements that no longer meet their needs. Additionally, as some operators grow through acquisition, they sometimes find themselves with duplicated facilities that add unnecessary capital and operating expenditures. And other operators are faced with asset disaggregation or divestiture as the result of changing business models.

  • In recent years, all western industrialized countries, and to a growing extent even many developed and developing Asian nations, have witnessed a remarkable growth in numbers of older people [1]. Future projections anticipate continued increases, particularly in numbers of individuals who are 85 years and older [1]. Although US statistics have indicated recent declines in disability trends [2], overall numbers of older individuals living with disability and functional dependence are likely to increase given projected increases in life expectancy [3].

  • In the second half of the 1990s economic growth has been favourable stimulated by a clear fall in inte- rest rates. Unemployment was rapidly decreasing and the demand for housing has been growing causing house prices to double since 1991. Production of new housing in urban areas has not increased to the same extent as the population. A shortage of housing and high house prices, especially in the capital city of Oslo and surrounding municipalities, have been the result.

  • Generally, alcohol consumption declines with age and the proportion of non-drinkers increases. The reasons for this decline in consumption are presumably connected to changes in life circumstances and attitudes and, in the later middle aged and older, growing ill health. There is evidence that today’s population of elderly people may be relatively heavier drinkers than previous generations.

  • New members have to buy their books or borrow them from older members of the bank. They should pay an entrance fee and start bringing their weekly mandatory savings to the bank meetings. New members are not eligible for loans until they have attended four bank meetings and saved four times. Because their savings are small, their loans will be small at first and so will their dividends. If the village bank grows to 35 members and still more women want to join, the group should help the new women form their own village bank. Once membership grows...

  • The growth in the production of hardware and software for these sectors has been phenomenal, certainly equaling or exceeding anything in the Industrial Revolution. These industries have located to new sites, either in the suburbs in existing metropolitan areas or in rapidly growing, relatively new cities (Scott, 1993; Castells and Hall, 1994). Almost nowhere have they been significant as employment generators for older, inner cities. As growth generators, they are, at best, indirect.

  • The statistical studies by Kane and others confirm what many of us already have observed. Countries and regions that rely on existing, mature industries eventually go into economic decline, with chronic net job loss. In some places, startups help to keep the economy afloat. And the countries and regions that truly thrive have more than high startup rates: They keep turning out gazelles, which grow to become the next large-scale employers as older companies level out or fade away.

  • Actinic keratosis, also known as solar keratosis, is a pre-cancerous skin condition caused by too much exposure to the sun. Actinic keratoses are usually small (less than 1/4 inch across), rough or scaly spots that may be pink-red or flesh-colored. Usually they develop on the face, ears, backs of the hands, and arms of middle-aged or older people with fair skin, although they can arise on other sun-exposed areas. People with one actinic keratosis usually develop many more. Actinic keratoses tend to grow slowly. They usually do not cause any symptoms.
