We Were Younger Then
If you've ever had a look through your relatives' old photo albums from when they were young, or watched old TV shows, this thought may have crossed your mind: why the hell do these teenagers look like they're worried about mortgages and pensions on their way to their bi-annual prostate exams?
We Were Younger Then
A study published in 2018 examined the changes in biological aging (from markers such as blood pressure and lung function) changed in relation to chronological age, between 1988 and 2010. They found that even in this short time frame, there were significant differences in aging, with more recent generations being biologically "younger" than those who came before them.
"However, the degree of change has not been the same for men and women or by age. Our results showed that young males experienced greater improvements than did young females. This finding may explain why early adult mortality has decreased more for males than females, contributing to a narrowing of the gender mortality gap. Additionally, improvements were also larger for older adults than they were for younger adults."
"But a significant proportion of the decreases over time were unaccounted for," they write. "Other explanations for the improvements in population health that we were unable to test are better early-life and prenatal conditions and reductions in infectious disease."
In an interview with the Sheffield University Paper in May 1965, Dylan explained the change that had occurred in his songwriting over the previous twelve months, noting "The big difference is that the songs I was writing last year ... they were what I call one-dimensional songs, but my new songs I'm trying to make more three-dimensional, you know, there's more symbolism, they're written on more than one level." In late 1965, Dylan commented on the writing of "My Back Pages" specifically during an interview with Margaret Steen for The Toronto Star: "I was in my New York phase then, or at least, I was just coming out of it. I was still keeping the things that are really really real out of my songs, for fear they'd be misunderstood. Now I don't care if they are." As Dylan stated to Nat Hentoff at the time that "My Back Pages" and the other songs on Another Side of Bob Dylan were written, "There aren't any finger pointing songs [here] ... Now a lot of people are doing finger pointing songs. You know, pointing to all the things that are wrong. Me, I don't want to write for people anymore. You know, be a spokesman."
The American rock band the Byrds released a recording of "My Back Pages" on February 6, 1967, as part of their fourth album, Younger Than Yesterday. The title of Younger Than Yesterday was itself directly inspired by the song's refrain of "Ah, but I was so much older then/I'm younger than that now." "My Back Pages" was subsequently issued as a single by the Byrds on March 13, 1967, with the version included on the single being a radio edit that omitted the song's second verse, to reduce the playing time from 3:08 to 2:31. The single reached number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 18 in Canada, but failed to chart in the United Kingdom. "My Back Pages" was the last single by the Byrds to reach the Top 40 of the U.S. charts.
When parents were asked about the benefits that their middle school or high school aged child gets from playing sports, more than eight in ten parents whose child plays sports say their child benefits a great deal or quite a bit in his/her physical health (88%) and helping him/her learn about discipline or dedication (81%). More than seven in ten parents say that playing sports benefits their child a great deal or quite a bit in learning how to get along with other people (78%) and his/her mental health (73%). More than half of parents report playing sports benefits their child a great deal or quite a bit in giving him/her skills to help in future schooling (56%), and giving him/her skills to help in a future career (55%).
About half of adults (48%) say they do vigorous- or moderate-intensity exercise on a regular basis. The vast majority of adults who exercise report doing so for health-related reasons (71%), including to improve health, get into or stay in shape, or lose weight. Adults who exercise are more likely to have higher incomes, more education, and tend to be younger than adults who do not exercise.
When adults who regularly did any vigorous- or moderate-intensity exercise in the past year were asked the type of exercise they did most often, the top five most frequently reported forms of exercise were walking (27% of adults who exercise), cardio/aerobic activities (23%), running or jogging (15%), weight lifting (12%), and biking (6%).
The margin of error for total respondents is +/- 2.7 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. The total sample includes oversamples of two groups: (1) adults who said they played or participated in any sport in the past year (1,249 interviews, margin of error +/- 3.4 percentage points); (2) parents of junior high school, middle school, or high school children (604 interviews, margin of error +/- 5.2 percentage points). In the overall results, these two groups were weighted to their actual proportion of adults nationwide.
In most cases, older adults need lower doses of medications than younger adults. A healthcare professional should generally start with a low dose of a medication for older adults. Then they can slowly increase to the target amount to get the benefits and avoid side effects.
Within the study, 543 patients participated with an average age of 38 years old at the time of the first egg freeze, which is older than the optimal age to freeze eggs (35 years old or younger). These patients had 800 egg freezing cycles, 605 egg thaws, and 436 embryo transfers between 2005 and 2020.
The news fell over social media like a dark cloud. Less than an hour before gates were scheduled to open for the inaugural When We Were Young festival at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on the Strip, organizers announced that Day 1 had been canceled due to high wind warnings (which had been forecasted days earlier). Day 2 would go on as planned, with the third day still scheduled to proceed on October 29.
On the upside, Las Vegas promoters, venue operators and others involved in the local scene quickly stepped up to do what they could to salvage the day for some. Word began to spread about a free All-American Rejects show at SoulBelly BBQ on Main Street that night. Patrick "Pulsar" Trout, the promoter behind Pulsar Presents, began posting about additional pop-up gigs on social media as they were announced.
There were activations all around the grounds such as a halfpipe for skateboarding, a neon-lit dive bar area in which festivalgoers could drink and a larger-than-life art sculpture of a robot rising from the ground.
Testing a new vaccine in children is always challenging: the requisite safety threshold is higher in a population of individuals who are still developing and are generally healthy. Additionally, older adults face the greatest risk of severe disease and death from COVID. So when the vaccines were developed, it made sense to start testing them in the latter age group first.
There were no cases of myocarditis or pericarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle or its lining) among children six months through four or five years old in either respective trial. Rare instances of vaccine-induced myocarditis or pericarditis have occurred in older adolescents and young adults, primarily male individuals, but these cases were generally self-resolving. COVID and other infections can also cause such inflammation, and it is usually more severe than that linked to vaccines. There were no deaths among children in the trials.

It is unclear why the first mammogram for some women with a breast lump was classified as a screening mammogram, and for others, it was classified as a diagnostic mammogram. Women reporting a breast lump constituted a small proportion of the screening mammography population (5%) but were different from the women reporting a lump in the diagnostic mammography population (ie, the specificity and the cancer detection rate among women with a lump who received a screening mammogram was observed to be lower than that among women with a lump who received diagnostic mammography). Unfortunately, we could not evaluate when the lumps were detected. For example, it is possible that among women with a breast lump, some made a screening appointment and then developed a lump that was then reported at the time of screening, whereas others with a lump may have sought an immediate consultation for a new breast symptom, without having scheduled a mammogram. The subgroup of women arriving for screening with a lump need further study because they appear to be a clinically distinct group.
Few community-based studies have been conducted to evaluate the performance of mammography among young women. The Oregon Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (BCCP), which targeted women at the poverty level, has reported that 21% of women who were younger than 40 years were asymptomatic but that 79% of their women who were sent mammography had been examined for a breast problem, which is a much smaller proportion than were examined by screening in our population (33). Discrepancies between that study and this study might be that data for this study were from all women in participating practices, whereas data in the BCCP study were from women who were eligible for that study (ie, those with incomes of up to 250% of the Federal Poverty Level and who were uninsured or underinsured). Thus, mammographic screening of asymptomatic women is not supported and should be reserved for young women with symptoms. 041b061a72
