Throughout a woman’s life, her appearance is constantly changing. As a child and a teen, she is growing and developing her adult look. When she’s older, she beings to age. And the entire time, her personal sense of style is also growing and changing. She buys new clothes, wears new makeup, and tries new hairstyles.

While men also go through changes in and experimentation with their looks, they don’t do it to quite the same degree as women. For most men, short hair is the status quo, and they don’t have to put much more thought into it.

The blogosphere is under assault from social media forces such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+. If you were to believe even just half the hype, legions of bloggers are calling it quits and moving their online efforts to one or more social media platforms.

Hype is just that: it is based on conjecture, usually without solid facts.

As the number of older Americans balloons, so too does the proportion of the population they comprise. According to the 2010 US Census, over 40 million Americans – 13% – are 65 or older. In comparison with 2000 data, “the population grew at a faster rate in the older ages than in the younger ages.”

This trend is expected to continue and accelerate. As a result, issues surrounding the care of the elderly will become increasingly important.
