De Grey's research focuses on whether regenerative medicine can thwart the ageing process. He works on the development of what he calls " Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence " (SENS), a tissue-repair strategy intended to rejuvenate the human body and allow an indefinite lifespan . To this end, he has identified seven types of molecular and cellular damage caused by essential metabolic processes. SENS is a proposed panel of therapies designed to repair this damage. An article about SENS published in the viewpoint section of EMBO Reports by 28 scientists concluded that none of de Grey's therapies ...

The article reports on the warning of the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) regarding a caring time bomb as poor pay and staff turnover undermine the female-dominated caring professions in England. The research conducted by the EOC into the cost of undervaluing the work of women reveals that many women are treated as if they are laborers of love or are working for pocket money pay. It indicates that one of the reasons work traditionally done by women is undervalued is the stereotypical views of women in caring roles. The EOC believes that unacceptable staff turnover rates undermine the quality of public services that rely on ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Social policy
Despite much political will, Belgium’s EU Presidency will not be dominated by social policy issues. No major European Commission initiatives are expected before 2011, be they about revision of the Working Time Directive or the Posting of Workers Directive. There are just three draft directives in the legislative pipeline. These cover maternity leave, assisting spouses and discrimination. But little progress is expected on any of them. The first, which would put in place measures to improve the health and safety of workers who are pregnant, have recently given birth or are breast-feeding (amend. Directive 92/85/EEC), is currently ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Public health, private equity
Leeder, director of the Menzies Centre for Health Policy at Sydney University, says that is so because despite ongoing public discussion and the National Health and Hospitals Reform Commission's exhaustive review, the relationship between public and private sectors remains ambiguous. This in a country that endorses universal health care and is dominated by the public sector. "There's no coherent policy that says this is how we envision the role of private plays," according to Leeder. That's not to say that the takeover of Healthscope -- Australia's second-largest private hospital operator which operates 44 ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Care Providing has been an important part of my life, personally and professionally. I learned so many valuable lessons from the loved ones I’ve gotten to care for. Now, as a professional resource for care providers, I’m also privy to some amazing stories. It’s easy, in our busy lives, to see those we care for as ANOTHER responsibility – to miss the moments of love -- and lessons -- if we’re not paying attention.

The headline of a syndicated news story sums it up: “Seniors: Today's 'Younger' Buyers Want More Amenities.” They are e more driven by fitness, are younger of mind and have ...
