Middle-aged Americans who don’t have a problem with getting older tend to take better care of their health.
Eric Kim, a University of Michigan doctoral student, says in a study that too many people 50 and older seem resigned to the fact that a certain amount of physical and mental decay is inevitable so to them, it makes little sense to take advantage of preventative health care services.
That's why Kim says it’s important to have a positive mindset about the aging process.
He explains that when people are comfortable in their own skin and hope to remain vigorous and healthy in their 50s, 60s and 70s, they get their cholesterol checked regularly and undergo colonoscopies.
For men, higher aging satisfaction also involves prostate exams while women will undergo a mammogram/X-ray or pap smears.
One-Hit Wonder: TIP TOE THRU THE TULIPS TINY TIM 1968
We're in the midst of an energy crisis. As in, we’re tired! To paraphrase Aerosmith, it can often feel like your “get up and go, got up and went.” And sure, the reasons could be simple, but they may also be serious.
Here are some common contributors to that “not so fresh” feeling, courtesy of HuffingtonPost.com:
1. You're not sleeping enough. This may sounds like a gimme, but not for the reason you think. Sleep isn't just about resting; there's a lot going on inside the old bod when you’re recharging. Human growth hormone. Heard of it? HGH is a protein made by the pituitary gland, plays a role in making muscles healthy and bones strong. It affects how our bodies collect fat (especially around the stomach area) and it helps balance the ratio of good to bad cholesterol. It's also essential for normal brain function. Don’t have enough and you’ll “enjoy” decreased strength and stamina, and depression symptoms. Since growth hormone is secreted primarily when we sleep, seven and a half or eight hours of high-quality shut-eye each night will help keep weight and pain down and boost up your energy.
2. You're eating too much junk. We think of sugar as a quick way to boost energy, but in the long run it does just the opposite. Research shows that fast food also puts you in biological slo-mo. All those that end in -ose, like glucose, dextrose, maltose and sucrose, are just going to leave you sluggish. So skip it!
3. You're not drinking enough water. It’s true what they say, many people can't identify when their fatigue is due to dehydration. A glass of water may be the jolt you need – so drink as much H2O as it takes to keep your mouth moist throughout the day. And not to be gross, but there’s a handy rule of thumb: Your pee should be light yellow to clear. If it's brighter and darker yellow, you need to drink more water. So do!
4. You're low in vitamin B. You need B vitamins for your mitochondria to turn glucose into energy. We can absorb B vitamins well in liquid or pill form, but 99 percent of us don't get enough from our diets. Try taking a vitamin in the morning and evening. This will keep levels stable and get you energized, and there's no harm in it since you'll excrete any excess water-soluble vitamins. Not working for ya? Have your doc check your vitamin B12 and D levels. If you find you have the rare case of not absorbing them well into your intestine and stomach, you can get a B12 injection yearly.
5. You've got an infection. Infection and inflammation can be two dominos in the low-energy cascade of symptoms. One of your goals could be to monitor your body so infections don't linger. So what can you do? Floss regularly to lower your gum inflammation risk. Use probiotics to treat prostatitis, “va-jay-jay” and bowel infections. With viral infections, frequent hand washing, sleeping and avoiding saturated fats and simple sugars can help.
6. You aren’t moving enough. You can jump-start your energy with an activity as simple as walking. When you get moving, nitric oxide is released from the artery linings to allow blood to move freely through your vessels. On the flip side, your body responds to your actions. If you tell your body you're vegging out on re-runs all night, it’ll downshift energy production. If you tell your body that you need to have a brisk morning walk, it responds by giving you the energy you need to do just that. Whee!
7. Your hormones are out of whack. There are numerous hormones that factor in to how energized or blah you're feeling. Hormones are like dimmers on headlights. When you need bright lights, you turn on certain hormones to increase the energy to that area, and decrease usage elsewhere. The fine-tuning starts in your hypothalamus and pituitary. The two primary sources of trouble are slow-functioning thyroid and adrenal glands. Bottom line, talk to your doc!
8. You're insulin resistant. Insulin resistance – a precursor to diabetes – makes it hard to get sugar (our body's fuel) to our energy production plants. We then distribute the sugar into fat storage rather than storing it in cells, which need it to produce energy.
Ever think that “Terminator” was so insane it could never happen? Think again. New research is offering a glimpse on how techno-fied you’re about to get. That is, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Like the Apple Watch, “wearables will have their moment in the sun, but they're simply a transition technology. Implantable technology will soon move from existing outside our bodies to residing inside us. It’s considered “the next big frontier.”
Here are six types of implantable tech that scientists say will be part of your life (and your body) in the near future:
1) Implantable Smartphones – It’s already starting to happen. As an example, consider that just last year, artist Anthony Antonellis had an RFID chip embedded in his arm that could store and transfer art to his handheld smartphone. Fast forward and now researchers are experimenting with embedded sensors that turn human bone into living speakers. Not impressed? Other scientists are working on eye implants that let an image be captured with a blink and transmitted to any local storage (such as that arm-borne RFID chip).
2) Healing Chips – Patients are already using cyber-implants that tie directly to smartphone apps to monitor and treat diseases. In fact, a new bionic pancreas being tested at Boston University, for instance, has a tiny sensor on an implantable needle that talks directly to a smartphone app to monitor blood-sugar levels for diabetics. Scientists in London are also developing swallowable capsule-sized circuits that monitor fat levels in obese patients and generate genetic material that makes them feel "full." There are dozens of other medical issues from heart murmurs to anxiety have implant/phone initiatives under way.
3) Cyber-pills That Talk To Your Doctor - Implantables won’t just communicate with your phone – can chit-chat with your doctor, too. In a project named Proteus, which was named after the body-navigating vessel in the film, “Fantastic Voyage,” a British research team is developing cyber-pills with microprocessors in them that can text doctors directly from inside your body. The pills can share (literally) inside info to help doctors know if you are taking your medication properly and if it is having the desired effect.
4) Bill Gates’ Birth Control – No, really! The Gates Foundation is supporting an MIT project to create an implantable female compu-contraceptive controlled by an external remote control. The tiny chip generates small amounts of contraceptive hormone from within the woman's body for up to 16 years and scientists say that implantation is no more invasive than a tattoo. Gives losing the remote a whole new meaning.
5) “Smart” tattoos – Sure, getting your future ex-husband’s name branded on you might not be the best idea, but what about a smart, digital tattoos that not only looks cool, but can also perform useful tasks, like unlocking your car or entering mobile phone codes with a finger-point?
Researchers at the University of Illinois have crafted an implantable skin mesh of computer fibers thinner than a human hair that can monitor your body's inner workings from the surface. There’s also a company called Dangerous Things who is producing an NFC chip that can be embedded in a finger through a tattoo-like process, letting you unlock things or enter codes simply by pointing. A Texas research group has developed microparticles that can be injected just under the skin, like tattoo ink, and can track body processes.
5) Brain/Computer Interface - A team at Brown University called BrainGate is at the forefront of the real-world movement to link human brains directly to computers for a host of uses.
As the BrainGate website says, "using a baby aspirin-sized array of electrodes implanted into the brain, early research from the BrainGate team has shown that the neural signals can be ‘decoded' by a computer in real-time and used to operate external devices." Intel scientist Dean Pomerleau said in a recent article, "Eventually people may be willing to be more committed to brain implants” adding, "Imagine being able to surf the Web with the power of your thoughts." And yes, this is a real thing: Chip-maker Intel predicts practical computer-brain interfaces by 2020.

Are you a huge "Back to the Future Part II" fan? Good news. A California start up has created a real hoverboard.
The group, called Arx Pax, is counting on a crowdfunding to get the Hendo Hoverboard...off the ground. It isn't exactly Marty McFly's skateboard, but using electromagnetic field technology, it will get you about an inch off the floor and can hold up to 300 pounds. The price tag is $10-thousand, which, for flying, isn't too bad.
So far, the official Kickstarter has raised over $120-thousand of their $250-thousand goal.
-- (UPI.com) Swedish police responding to an 11-year-old's report of a possible burglar said they ended up helping the boy with his math homework.
Stockholm police said the boy was home alone when he called emergency services and reported hearing a loud thump, which he suspected could be a burglar.
Police arrived and searched the area around the home to verify no one was attempting to break into the residence.
"11-year-old home alone thought somebody broke in, armed. It was wrong, but he was scared and patrol remained. Helped with math homework," Sodermalm police wrote on the department's official Twitter account.
Viktor Adolphson of the Sodermalm police told Nyheter 24 the officers did not want to leave the scared boy alone until his mother got home.
"He had called his mother also but he was on his own when the police got there and they didn't want to leave him alone so they sat down and helped him with his multiplication tables and other homework," Adolphson said.
-- Hey criminals of the world, check the counter for Raid before holding up a store. Annabelle Miller was working at the CSI Coalfield Mini Market in Berlin, Pennsylvania when a masked woman entered the store. Without a weapon, Miller grabbed what she could...a can of bug spray. "She just stood there and then started walking out the door, and I kept spraying her as she was walking," Miller said. "I don't think she's coming back." Source: WJAC-TV
-- 64-year-old Kathy Brookins was sick of walking past stained, chipped planters, so she took matters into her own hands. Her used her own money and two weeks of time adding fresh flowers and repainting the pots. That didn't go over well. Shannon Earle, who owns the property where the planters are situated, saw what she was doing, asked her to stop, and gave her a gallon of stain to remove the paint. Now, they're back to their old, dilapidated luster. Source: TwinCities.com
-- A 27-year-old man was arrested at a mall in Sanford, Florida, last week for allegedly exposing himself to female patrons -- a practice he first described to cops as "extreme shopping." According to the Orlando Sentinel, the arrest report noted Christopher Durrell Glaze, "pulled down the front of his pants and exposed himself completely" to a woman who called the cops on him; Glaze is accused of doing the same thing to another woman as well.
When questioned on the scene by cops, Glaze at first insisted he was "extreme shopping" -- which he reportedly described as, "when you go shopping and you talk to girls and flirt" -- and copped only to showing off his abs. However, he eventually came clean that he showed more.
Glaze was arrested on two misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure of sexual organs.
-- An apparent creature of habit was arrested at the New York City Public Library on Monday in connection with a bank robbery in May. Cops told the New York Post that 33-year-old Jason Bird allegedly robbed a Chase bank branch after 2 p.m. on May 22 -- and returned to the same branch two hours later, but fled empty-handed the second time when a clerk who recognized him tried stalling him.
Bird's image was allegedly captured on surveillance cameras at the bank, and at the Midtown branch of the New York Public Library, to which he reportedly ran after the second would-be heist went south.
Sharp-eyed library employees spotted Bird again Monday and called the cops, who slapped him with two robbery charges.
-- A teacher at a school in South Carolina was arrested for driving under the influence Monday, after being pulled over in the parking lot of her place of employ.
According to the news site ColaDaily, special ed teacher Jan Munch Curtis had a child in the car with her as she approached Red Bank Elementary School, and before she pulled in, a police officer noted she was allegedly driving erratically.
In the parking lot, the officer performed a field sobriety test that the teacher allegedly flunked. Curtis, who has worked in the school district for 16 years, was charged with driving under the influence and child endangerment.
Curtis was suspended pending a school district investigation into the incident.
-- Cops say a South Carolina woman not only lured a man to her home with the intention of attacking him, but also thought to pre-write a check meant to pay her bond after her inevitable arrest.
Cops have just revealed they found the victim hiding in front of the house when they responded to the call last Tuesday; according to WIS-TV, he suffered a non life-threatening injury to his side. Saundra Gary allegedly told the unidentified victim to visit because she had something for him.
Gary was all smiles in her mug shot after she was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. It's not known if the check she wrote before the attack was enough to cover the five thousand dollar bond a judge imposed.
-- A Russian man searching for scrap metal was saved by an old computer when a bear charged him in western Siberia on Saturday.
According to the Moscow Times, the unidentified man instinctively grabbed a discarded computer and flung it at the beast, which turned tail and ran -- as did its would-be meal, in the opposite direction.
It's likely the tossed tech startled the charging animal, causing it to change its mind -- just as a ringtone scared off a different Russian bear that attacked a fisherman in July.
Other than an injury to his hand from throwing the machine, the villager emerged unharmed.

Rhines did admit her marriage wasn't solidified with a marriage license, and she was arrested on fraud charges when police arrived and figures she had no money to pay her tab. Source: OKCFox
Aside from work, you spend most of your hours at home. And it should function as a respite from the lure of the fast food joint on every corner, or the ease of buying a candy bar from the vending machine. But if your home isn't set up right, it may be encouraging bad habits. “Health” magazine suggests that you can restructure your home environment to protect yourself from unhealthy food and a sedentary lifestyle.
From organizing your kitchen to your thermostat setting, here are 10 ways your home may slyly cause you to pack on pounds.
You have overflowing cabinets -- If your kitchen counters are full of food because you can't seem to fit just one more box of rice inside, it's time to remove the clutter. The food sitting out could cause a major craving.
Get that healthy food out of the fridge (if it doesn't HAVE to be refrigerated) -- How does that old adage go? Out of sight out of mind? This rings true when healthy food is hidden from plain view. Instead of putting apples and pears in the fridge, buy a fruit bowl or basket so you can see the healthy options in front of you – experts say you're less likely to eat the food that you can't see.
Turn down your thermostat -- Temperatures kept in the comfortable 70s is a contributor to obesity. If your body doesn't have to work to expend energy to warm itself up. According to a study done by “Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism,” the result is a slowing metabolism. So turn down your thermostat a few degrees at home - being cold activates your brown fat, which actually spurs your metabolism and improves glucose sensitivity. Keep exercise equipment in constant view – When it comes to exercise equipment, we’ll often hide equipment in in rooms we don't want to go in, like the basement. Think about it, when your option is to go on a treadmill covered in spider webs or sit on a big comfy couch in front of the TV, which are you more likely to pic?. The fix? Keep dumbbells, your yoga mat or an exercise bike close by the TV so you're reminded to use them when you sit down to relax.
Choose your friends wisely -- This sounds odd, but many studies have shown you behave as your friends do. "Look at who your friends are," says James O. Hill, PhD, director of the Colorado Nutrition Obesity Research Center. "You're going to behave similarly to the people you spend time with." If your friends are more the type to sit around and drink beer and eat chips, chances are you will be, too. If they eat less, and move more – SO WILL YOU! Or at least, you’re more likely to.
Let the sunshine in -- Sunshine doesn't just give you a healthy boost of vitamin D, it's helpful to keep your body in a happy and healthy state. When you don't get enough Z's, hormones responsible for controlling hunger are thrown off. In one International Journal of Endocrinology study, sleep-deprived adults who were exposed to dim light in the morning had lower concentrations of the fullness hormone leptin, while those in blue light (the kind from energy-efficient bulbs) had higher leptin levels. The solution? Throw those window shades open when you wake and take in the rays. Rainy day? Turn on lamps and overhead lights, they help too.
Cut out the family-style serving at the table -- Most are used to dishes upon dishes of mashed potatoes and the like being easily accessible at the table during family dinners. But for your next meal, hold off on putting bowls of food on your table. It's easy to overeat when the temptation is right in front of you. Instead, dish out food straight from pots and pans. This strategy decreased food intake by 10 percent for women in a Cornell University study. Another trick, recommends Dr. Pagoto: dish out dinner, then put the rest away. If you want seconds, you have to go through the trouble of reheating, which most people won't do. At the very least, it gives your body time to feel full, so you'll take a smaller second portion.
Don't let your cozy home bring you down -- Who doesn't love to come home from a long day at work, throw on some sweat pants and settle down in your cozy chair for a marathon of whatever on Netflix? But getting into that sedentary mode means you're starting nighttime before it's actually nighttime -- canceling out the desire to do something healthy for your body. The fix? Change into active clothes, turn on lights and play energizing music after dinner.
Get rid of your bedroom TV – You don’t have to nuke it altogether - just the one in your bedroom. Watching television is associated with a greater risk of being overweight or obese. "Screen time is sedentary time," says Dr. Hill. Besides, most of us watch things we don't really like simply to fill up time. The bedroom should be for sex and sleep only, according to medical experts. Also, kitchen TV's encourage lingering and snacking…and you don’t want that, right?
You DON’T need giant sized plates and bowls -- Is there a need for a plate as big as your head or a bowl as big as a basketball? No. These large serving dishes play a trick on you: you subconsciously want to fill the space, so you wind up dishing out more. Case in point -- Cornell research found that adults and kids poured more cereal into large bowls and consumed 44% more calories. To decrease your portion size, plates should be no more than 9 to 10 inches and bowls less than 20 ounces.
