With a baby boomer turning sixty every ten seconds, we are rapidly becoming an aging society. But cutting edge research on the connection between age and disease shows us that many of the preconceptions we had about how to grow old need a second look. This groundbreaking book is full of take-away prescriptive advice which the nearly seventy-five million boomers in this nation will value. Top gerontologist and Stanford medical school professor Dr. Walter Bortz and co-author Randall Stickrod draw on new science and a thirty-year longitudinal study of centenarians to show that:
• Genetics plays a smaller role in aging than previously thought
• Senility, dementia, and other diseases of the elderly, are largely preventable and not an inevitable consequence of aging
• Engagement, through sexual relationships, social interaction, and professional activity, is a key factor in long, healthy lives
• Physical fitness can recover at least 30 years of aging
Filled with in-depth insight and practical advice, The Roadmap to 100 gives you the power to control your own destiny and live well beyond 100.
The sixth Pacific-Rim Symposium on Image and Video Technology (PSIVT 2013) will be held in Guanajuato, México, from October 28th to November 1st, 2013.
PSIVT provides a forum for presenting and exploring the newest research and development in image and video technology by discussing the possibilities and directions in this field, and a place where both academic research and industrial activities are presented and meet for mutual benefit. It invites researchers, artists, developers, educators, performers, and practitioners of image and video technology from the Pacific Rim and around the world.
The PSIVT 2013 proceedings of the main conference and workshops will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science collection.
Selected and extended papers, such as the award winning papers, will be invited to be published in a Journal Publication to be announced soon.
High-quality contributions from prospective authors are solicited in all aspects of image and video technology including, but not limited to:
Imaging and Graphics Hardware and Visualization
Image/Video Coding and Transmission
Image/Video Processing and Analysis
The 2013 IEEE Workshop on Advanced Robotics and its Social Impacts (ARSO) aims at discussing advanced robotics R&D and its implications to economic and social systems.
