  • The retirement crisis is directly attributable to the failure of the “three-legged stool” of retirement security. Traditionally, defined benefit pension plans (“pensions”), personal savings, and Social Security were seen as the three pillars creating a solid foundation for our retirement system. Each should play an important role in supporting people in old age. However, the stool, never sturdy, has become increasingly wobbly as pensions have disappeared and the middle class is finding it harder and harder to save. ...

  • and gait is mostly derived from studies that measured and reported EF as a composite score [12,18,19]. Relatively few studies have focused on the age-related deficits in specific components of executive function and most of these studies were based on a traditional set of tests of executive function, without detailing specific components. The conclusions drawn from these studies might, therefore, be limited by their methodologies. The putative executive measures might not load on a single executive construct, and might overlap with each other [20,21].

  • Some medical schools have a dedicated ambulatory internal medicine rotation, others combine this experience with the inpatient rotation, and some hybridize it with other primary care fields. Often thought of as a less essential and less exciting rotation, let it be said that the outpatient encounter is where a lot of action happens.

It has also served as a justification against intervention because of the risk that a high proportion of investment support to start-ups will be quickly written off. The policy implication is that it is better to target public support on existing businesses.
