News from the Aging Globe

Stories about aging are seldom front page news – except here on the SCF web site. Mostly, mainstream newspapers and magazines either fail to cover issues that have to do with aging or bury those stories on inside pages. Yet they’re fascinating – and ultimately they will affect every last one of us. We will front-page them for you here in our News of the Aging Globe section with frequent new postings. We’ll link you to the best stories we can find from newspapers and magazines around the world, covering everything from the latest scientific research on longevity to reviews of films that feature older characters. You’ll read about innovative housing for seniors, new knee or hip replacement techniques, elders who are in some way role models for all of us, and much, much more.

Notable Quote

"It is not by muscle, speed, or physical dexterity that great things are achieved, but by reflection, force of character, and judgment; in these qualities old age is usually not poorer, but is even richer."

Cicero (106-43 BC)
