On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Living long

Would you like to live 1,000 years? According to an article in Smithsonian magazine, a Silicone Valley biologist named Aubrey de Grey insists that it is possible, even that someone living now will do so. It is all about stopping the aging process in human cells and replacing them when they do malfunction. Most research biologists disagree with him, but what if his predictions are right or anything like right?

To make a tree

To make a tree, begin with a straight line, vertical. On each side of the straight line add additional straight lines, shorter, at an angle. These are limbs. To the limbs add more straight lines, shorter still. These are branches. Continue in this manner until your tree is finished.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Kids need parents to be truly in charge

Many of today's parents suffer (and suffer they do, albeit a good number seem to feel their suffering is a sign of conscientious parenting) from what I call "upside-down, inside-out and backwards parent-view disorder."

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Meeting the grief challenge

What can I say? What can I do? Death and the storm of grief that follows can challenge the best intentions of supportive friends. There is no bandage for this injury, no balm for this pain. Nonetheless, help is needed and there are good things to say and do.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Pull over for Georgia peaches

A good road trip becomes a great road trip at first sight of those often hand-painted wooden, one to two word signs seen along the interstate, leading up to an exit a mile away. Sometimes they're nailed to trees at eye-level or simply secured in the ground one after another and written in shorthand exclaiming, "Boiled P-Nuts," "Peaches" and "Watermelon."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't jump to the diagnosis just yet

Q: Our 4-year-old prefers solitary play over play with other children. It's been this way from early on when I began arranging play dates for him.

I put the word in quotes because he doesn't seem to really connect. He's very imaginative and will spend hours in his room playing quietly on his own or even boisterously with various imaginary friends.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Motivation key when choosing private school

Q: We have just moved and are seeking a new school for our two children - 6- and 8-year-old boys. They are smart, respectful of adults, and creative. We know that sounds like typical bragging, but it is what our friends and their teachers have all told us. We raise them in as traditional a manner as we can, given the opposing forces in today's world. They have daily chores and are allowed no after-school activities that might interfere with family dinner. So, knowing all that, do you have any school recommendation for us? Our options are a private school ...
