Senior Living: You are what you eat – and that includes your brain

By David W. Hart, Ph.D.  Contributing writer Did you know that epidemiologists who study the effects of diet on longevity have described ours as the Standard American Diet, otherwise known as the SAD diet? The acronym alone might tell you everything you need to know about the negative health outcomes related to Americans’ typical food regimen. It’s no secret that eating processed foods, sugary drinks, sweets, an overabundance of red meat and dairy, and limiting intake of antioxidants, vitamins a...

Sometimes, it is difficult to stay in your lane

Q. I am a retired firefighter of 34 years, and for 25 of those years I was on a paramedic unit and drove lights-and-siren as much or more than anyone at the time. I consider myself a cautious driver. On Christmas day we were driving down to San Diego on the I-5 Freeway. It was about 10:30 a.m. and raining. We were just passing where Highway 1 intersects the I-5, and the freeway lanes disappeared. The road in that area has the current striping; the old striping that Caltrans removed, but with the...

Senior Living: The helpful and hurtful sense of pain

By Dr. Thomas LaGrelius Contributing writer There are too many kinds of pain. There is acute (immediate) injury pain, which is often very useful. Put your finger on a hot frying pan and it hurts. That reminds you to remove your finger, unless you are very foolish, and put it quickly under a cold water stream for several minutes, minimizing the damage. If you fall and fracture your ankle it reminds you to stay in your cast/boot and limit your activities for the six to eight weeks it takes to heal...

A big tent candidate’s withdrawal from the race to be chairman of the California Republican Party is widely seen as a lift for rivals who would try to rebuild the state GOP in the image of President Trump. It might not work out that way, exactly. But David Hadley’s decision to quit his campaign to lead the struggling state party does shake up the contest, in which Trump supporters Travis Allen and Steve Frank are the only other declared candidates so far. Hadley, the California GOP vice chairman...
