Technique developed by comparing gene activity from healthy 65-year-olds with youngsters could also be used for other age-related conditions

A test that can track how well a person is ageing could help doctors identify patients who are most at risk of dementia and other age-related conditions.

Those picked out as ageing fast could be referred onto clinical trials for treatments that try to prevent neurodegenerative diseases or slow the ageing process itself.

BREAKING: Our attorneys have formally asked the U.S. Supreme Court to take on Texas HB2—a clinic shutdown law that would close over 75% of the state’s abortion clinics. This law is a sham: politicians want you to believe laws like HB2 improve women’s health care, but the truth is, they don’t. Instead, they create red tape, close clinics, and cut off access to safe, legal, abortion.

The most meaningful way you can help us put an end to clinic shutdown laws once and for all is to ensure we have the resources we need to win. Give a gift today.

It’s time to stop the sham. Texas, bring it on.

Rudy Giuliani Goes Trolling: Harass The Homeless For Their Own Good!: Gothamist

Let’s put aside Giuliani’s transparent hypocrisy and personal deficiencies for a moment and focus on the premise of the article, which is right there in its headline: “De Blasio’s Progressivism Created City’s Homeless Crisis.”This is a lie.This is a lie that has already been debunked several times. In 2013, during the last year of Bloomberg’s administration, NYC had more homeless people than it had in decades. During his whole final term, from January 2010 through December 2013, “the monthly average number of families with children in the city’s shelter system grew 20 percent. The number of adult families rose 46 percent and the number of single adults climbed 38 percent.”As the de Blasio administration has pointed out, imprisoning panhandlers doesn’t exactly solve the homeless problem in the long run. “Instead of ‘getting rid’ of people, Mayor de Blasio wants to implement long-term solutions to homelessness, building new shelters, providing supportive services and ensuring the mentally ill homeless receive the care they need,” de Blasio spokeswoman Karen Hinton said in a statement.
