Imagine you tell your 55-year-old mom you're going to get married and she's too disorganized to help you with the wedding preparations. Or you put your kids on the bus to elementary school and the 57-year-old driver forgets the route. These are real scenarios, drawn from my clinical work with patients who have young-onset Alzheimer's disease. This is the other face of dementia — no white hair or wrinkles. And it is relatively common. Approximately 5 percent of Alzheimer's patients are younger than 65. While the underlying pathology of both young-onset and late-onset Alzheimer's is the same — the abnormal accumulation of proteins called amyloid and tau in the brain — there are significant differences in how the two diseases are experienced. Patients who are under 65, for example, often have difficulties with language, visual processing and organizing and planning. They have less of the classic memory complaints. There is also accumulating evidence that young-onset … [Read more...] about Is That ‘Midlife Crisis’ Really Alzheimer’s Disease?
My midlife crisis
Richard Feloni, provided by Published 9:34 am, Sunday, April 22, 2018 Audible Audible CEO Don Katz founded the digital audiobook company in 1995, launched with one of the world's first digital audio players. The company made it through the late 1990s tech bubble and the death of a CEO Katz hired. Katz sold Audible to Amazon in 2008 for $300 million, keeping it largely independent and retaining his role as CEO. He shared what he learned from switching careers so late, and why he bonded with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Don Katz sounds more like a college English professor than a tech CEO. He's obsessed with literature and writing. And it's why he started Audible, the audiobook company owned by Amazon, in 1995.

Let's murder a metaphor. In June of 2010, two months after Apple had shipped the first iPad, Steve Jobs sat on stage with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at the D8 conference and compared tablets and PCs to cars and trucks. “PCs are going to be like trucks,” said Jobs. "They’re still going to be around. They’re still going to have a lot of value. But they’re going to be used by like one out of x people.” Jobs predicted that the vast majority of people will eventually use tablets as a primary computing device, just like the vast majority of people drive cars. “We like to talk about the post-PC era, but when it really starts to happen I think it will be uncomfortable for a lot of people,” he said. “I think we’re embarked on that.” Three and a half years later, the exploding tablet market has redefined the industry, but iPad sales have leveled off. Cheaper, smaller tablets from Google, Samsung, and Amazon are just as good at … [Read more...] about iPad Air review
