I am sure you will agree to say that the Covid 19 pandemic has thrown our lives into utter chaos is an understatement. Everything is upside down, left is right, outside is in, under is over. Not hugging is showing love, not sharing a meal is being considerate, not going to your place of work is thoughtful. We have come to recognize that the most important people in the world are not the rich and the famous, but those who clean the toilets, those who take care of the elderly in seniors homes and those who care for the very sick in hospitals. Indispensable people are not the politicians or CEO s, but the health care workers whose heroic acts are saving lives. Indispensable people are all those who are continuing to serve the rest of us, supplying the essentials of life such as food, medicine, transportation and health (physical and mental).

Recent data by AgeWell Foundation reveals that every second elderly person in India (49 percent) lives only with their elderly spouse as their children or relatives live separately. In the current situation of the lockdown, elderly people living alone are being taxed physically, mentally and emotionally.Data from world over has shown that senior citizens are at a higher risk of the COVID 19 infection, if they have any comorbidities like high blood pressure, diabetes and underlying heart diseases, especially heart failure.
Early reports on the coronavirus clearly showed that people with diabetes would be at greater risk of adverse outcomes following an infection. Subsequent studies have confirmed that elderly patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, underlying heart disease, cancer or chronic lung issues are particularly likely to succumb to the Covid 19 disease.Unless people with these conditions have an emergency situation, they should avoid visiting a clinic or hospital. And if they do venture out, they should be at two arm s length from other people. It s easy for doctors to advise that, but extremely difficult for people with diabetes to let their concerns be overcome by even a raging pandemic.

Governments around the world are asking citizens to socially distance themselves from one another, to stop the spread of COVID 19.

With its high prevalence, there is a common misconception that arthritis is a condition that only affects the elderly and adults. This isn t the case though. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) can affect children that are as young as six months old, up to the age of 16. Some children can experience the symptoms for a few months and others can have the symptoms for the rest of their lives. Globally, JIA affects around one in 1,000.Dr Anand Gorva, Specialist Paediatrics Orthopaedics, Medcare Orthopaedics amp; Spine Hospital, says that JIA, like rheumatoid arthritis, is autoimmune related and causes inflammation and pain and stiffness in the joints. JIA is an autoimmune disease or it is when the immune system malfunctions against the lining of the joints, called the synovial membrane.
We ve passed Thanksgiving and are racing toward Christmas. Island author Phil Reppert has transformed the traditional telling of the Nativity into a modern day tale. He locates Nativity on East 7th: A New York City Christmas squarely in Manhattan s Lower East Side, which harbors his main characters. Reppert explains about the inspiration for his book, Many years ago I heard a Catholic sister give a wonderful Advent talk on the Christmas story. She said that each year we should approach the traditional spiritual story with fresh eyes and an open heart, seeing new and deeper layers of meaning in the characters and events of the first Christmas. She said, Listen to the story with your heart, place yourself in the story, and find out what it means to you today The book is a coming of age story for the 20 year old Joseph, the protagonist (an aspiring woodworker) and teller of the story. His journey leads him to discover that relationships and connection with others are what he is seeking. His bonding starts off with the Boys of Benny s an odd assortment of rough and tumble local bar characters from a Vietnam vet to an aging hippie to an EMT, who will come in handy for the birth scene in a night blizzard. The Boys of Benny s, the Shepherds, are the ordinary, everyday working folks, just trying to make it in life, Reppert says. But Joseph is soon drawn across the street to St. Francis Parish and the extraordinary couple who cook meals for the homeless, and the elderly activist priest, Father Jasper. Reppert found inspiration for this wise and compassionate man in a minister he heard preach one Sunday in New York City, the well known social activist the Rev. William Sloane Coffin. Reppert says, This was the first time I heard a minister speak so boldly on the unjust treatment of the poor and homeless in New York City, and the church s duty to speak out and act on their part, Reppert says. I must admit, Rev. Coffin, along with other theologians I read, had a great influence on the development of Father Jasper s character and mystique. One of the characters in the book says of Father Jasper, He is an addiction, he makes you high on love. Reppert completes his trio of wise men with a rabbi and an imam who show up at various times in the book. Reppert situates his story in Manhattan because, I love NYC for the cultural diversity, the energy, and the distinct neighborhoods. As a 20 year old, I spent a great amount of time in Greenwich Village, more in the East Village. And yes, on Friday nights I frequented a local neighborhood bar on East 7th Street, where old men sat alone at the bar drinking their whiskey and we kids played countless games of pool while drinking countless juice size glasses of beer. East 7th Street was a neighborhood made up of locals and newbies, working and professional classes, and people from all ethnic backgrounds. Reppert casts Mary as Maria, pregnant and alone in the world until she becomes involved in the parish. But as Reppert says, although outcast from her family, she approaches her challenging life situation with maturity, acceptance, hopefulness, and unshaken faith. He explained that his initial intention was to write a short, modern day Christmas story. I wanted to try something different for this particular Christmas because I d heard our kids complaints from last Christmas: Must we read it again? We know the story. The story I started to write was not a warm and fuzzy sentimental story, but a modern day story about the outcast, the persecuted foreigner, the poor and homeless, the working class, the politically oppressed. As I started writing, it morphed into something bigger, until the characters took a life of their own and I had no idea where the story was headed. The author continues, I started writing this composition just prior to the last presidential election, and it is an understatement to say that I was greatly affected by the lack of civility and ugliness in our country. Writing this novel was my form of journaling, not only a way to deal with my own anger and disgust, but to look deeply into my own complicity in the matter, my prejudices and egotistical tendencies. I have never before used fictional characters and scenes to imagine a world that could be different, a story where a new love is born into. In A Note from the Author at the end of the novel, Reppert writes, Christmas is the time where we are called to look deeper, rededicate ourselves, stretch our hearts open a little farther, reawaken ourselves to the divine love born into this world, incarnate in a little peasant baby, found in a manger, for Love never fails, Love never ends. Where there is love, there is hope. Nativity on East 7th: A New York City Christmas by Phil Reppert. Available at Bunch of Grapes in Vineyard Haven, Edgartown Books, Cronig s Market, and online.

In human reproduction, mothers are considered to be elderly when the pregnancy occurs over the age of 35 years. To mimic these conditions, the researchers included rats who became pregnant at an age that is comparable for this species. They looked at placental development in these aged pregnant rats.The placenta is a vital organ in pregnancy, as it carries oxygen and nutrients to the fetus and transports wastes away to be disposed off by the maternal metabolism. It is also the source of a host of chemical signals that help the mother ''s body to support the development of the fetus. Moreover, it keeps out toxins and bacteria in the mother ''s blood so they don ''t affect the pregnancy. It even keeps hormone levels normal, especially stress hormones. However, the placenta is a dynamic organ and its functioning changes as required, to optimize growth conditions for the fetus. For example, when the mother is affected by malnutrition or hypoxia, or stress, the placenta compensates to ensure better fetal growth.
