A Perspective Of Old Age

- 1. What struck me most about the centenarians is how happy they were with their lives. None of them were complaining or sitting around demanding others take care of them. They were all incredibly independent and insistent on doing whatever they were able for the people around them. I think that is the part that is most worth emulating. No matter how old we get or what happens in our lives, I don’t think we should ever stop caring about others. Once we start to lack compassion, we begin to lose our humanity....   [tags: Old age, Middle age, Thing, Gerontology]

Analysis Of Matt Groening 's ' The Simpsons '

- Matt Groening is very smart, hard working and argumentatively one of the best comedic animation masterminds of all time. As you may know, he has created the longest running US animated T.V. series ‘The Simpsons’. They first aired on the ‘Tracy Ullman Show’on April 19, 1989. I think Groening has done a lot for the world of adult animation comedy or even animation all together. Spawning a lot of new shows like ‘Family Guy’ probably from ‘The Simpsons’ show although Groening is only one man, getting where he is today undoubtedly took some hard work and most definitely had to overcome some grim times or road blocks....   [tags: The Simpsons, Matt Groening, James L.

The Definition Of Old Age

- The definition of old age is not one that is universal. In some cultures, 50 is not considered old, but for some 40 is deemed old. This fluid definition is often created by an appearance. The gray hairs and wrinkly face are enough within some cultures to write someone off as old. In other cultures a person isn’t labeled old until they have hit a certain age milestone, i.e. becoming 60 or 65. The life span of people within that culture also influences when someone begins being “old.” If the life span within that society or culture goes to 120 then someone who is only 40 would be seen to have only lived one-third of their life and not be so old, while in a society or culture where the life spa...   [tags: Geriatrics, Old age, Ageing, Gerontology]
