NOVEMBER DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE:
TECHNOLOGY

Every day we hear about new technologies. Two-thirds of Americans own a smart phone; many of us have mastered texting, navigating, calendars, checking email and finding information.  There is so much more available to us. READ MORE



COMPUTER GURU
LIFELONG LEARNING: WHY YOU NEED TO BE ONLINE
by Don Benjamin


I’ve been a volunteer in the PSRC computer lab for about four years. It keeps me off the streets, though I admit downtown Plainsboro is fairly docile at night. Besides, as a senior, I get sleepy at 8 p.m. 
Also, I enjoy helping folks of any age use their smart phones, tablets, and computers.

Even a little activity may lower older women’s death risk

By , November 16th, 2017

Older women who engage in light physical activity, even as light as doing household chores, each day may have a lower risk of death, researchers report.

“Doing something is better than nothing, even when at lower-than-guideline recommended levels of physical activity.”

In the study of more than 6,000 white, African-American, and Hispanic women ages 63 to 99 in the United States, researchers found significantly lower risk of death in those who were active at levels only slightly higher than what defines being sedentary.

Women who engaged in 30 minutes per day of light physical activity—as measured by an accelerometer instead of a questionnaire—had a 12 percent lower risk of death.

Women who were able to do a half-hour each day of moderate to vigorous activity had a 39 percent lower mortality risk, according to the study.

For the age group in this study, light physical activities include regular chores such as folding clothes, sweeping the floor, or washing the windows. Activities like these account for more than 55 percent of how older people spend their daily activity. Moderate to vigorous activities would be brisk walking or bicycling at a leisurely pace.
