This space has explored many of the growing varieties of housing choices for boomers and elders when the time comes to downsize, rightsize, clear out or economize. Here's a new one that's making the news: think global. Even with (and [...]

New studies on staying fit, living long

Staying fit in summertime -- you know, those steamy days when lying on a raft in the middle of the lake seems a proper choice for the strenuous life -- isn't always easy. But as it turns out, new studies indicate it's both doable and critical. Plus, it can keep [...]

To Avoid Diabetes, Think like a Diabetic

Two things run strong and hard on both sides of my family: heart disease and type 2 diabetes. As a deluge of medical research tells us, the two are closely linked.  Often diabetes precedes heart disease, but in my family—particularly on my father’s side—it goes both ways.  My dad had [...]

In response to Size 14 The New Ideal For Women -- Thanks To Mad Men
  • Rini, I agree that health is the goal to aim for. Maybe if women, especially, were taught from earliest childhood to be healthy -- through food and exercise choices -- and not to be *pretty*, the [...]read » T/S CAITLIN KELLY

Crisis in Japan: Plunging birth rates and more 'bedroom shut-ins' may spell national disaster

The end of the American empire will come not at the business end of a gun, but the cream-filled center of a Twinkie. We're a disgusting, gluttonous people who will eventually evolve into massive flipper-babies floating in tubs of artificial amniotic fluid. (If we're lucky.) Japan, on the other hand, [...]

A month ago, I wrote about 5 Misconceptions About Purchasing New Running Shoes, based on experiences from several years working in the industry.

Here's an idea -- bigger women rock. From the Daily Mail:
All women should aspire to be a size 14 with buxom, hourglass figures, the new equalities minister claims. They must not be made to feel inadequate by stick-thin models staring out of advertising billboards and magazines. Instead, they should [...]
