  • Happy Birthday to Me

    By Ilana Angel

    April 7, 2013 | 7:28 am

    Today is my birthday.  I am 47 years old.  That is almost 50.  At 46 I felt like I was still teetering towards the low end of the 40's but I am now officially well into my 40's and actually closer to 50.  I don't care about birthdays that much, and truly have no fear about getting...

  • Terrorized by my Bicycle for my 45th Birthday

    By Lisa Ellen Niver

    November 16, 2012 | 9:13 pm

     "I did this to myself," I mumbled. I kept thinking, "This is my fault. I am stuck on this bike in this heat in Bagan to celebrate my big birthday. I chose this. I must be crazy." I wondered, "Why am I torturing myself? Are we having fun yet?"

    George, my happy husband, seemed so...

  • Facebook acquires Israeli Face.com

    June 18, 2012 | 2:36 pm

    Facebook acquired an Israeli company that specializes in facial recognition software.

    The terms of the deal between Facebook and Face.com were not disclosed by either company, according to the New York Times, which reported the deal on Monday.

    The facial recognition technology used by Face.com is designed to identify individuals by their gender and age.

  • The Male Gaze

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 21, 2011 | 12:18 pm

    Pretty girls get things for free.  You may not like this, you may think it’s a terrible superficial tragedy of our society that rewards people for something they don’t deserve.  You may think it’s a double standard because men aren’t rewarded based on appearance in the same...

  • Ladies of the View and Hasselbeck…

    By Julia Bendis

    February 19, 2011 | 1:31 pm

    Is it just me or is the show, ‘The View’ going down the hill?  The last couple of years it seems that the show has gotten a lot more hostile than in the past…  They have great guests on the show, and their topics are pretty relevant but its the hosts that bug me the most.  Not all of...

  • With the Republican base on the ropes, all eyes are on Florida —again

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    October 8, 2008 | 12:22 am

    Most Jews live in three states, two of which, New York and California, are already in the bank for Sen. Barack Obama.

    It's the third one, Florida, that has the presidential campaigns in a frenzy. There are roughly 650,000 Jews in Florida, out of 18 million residents. Concentrated in...

  • Happy birthday to me

    By Marty Kaplan

    August 21, 2008 | 12:07 am

    Not long ago, a guy I know, a good guy who to all outward appearances seems happy and successful, replied to a birthday e-mail I sent him at work -- "go home and blow out some candles" -- with this:

    "I'm 40-f---ing-8, give me a break. They tell me that's close to 50, but I refuse...

  • Veggie lovers could fare better in cancer fight

    By Melissa Knopper

    January 17, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    If you're a middle-aged man (or already past it) here's what should be on your menu today: tomato sauce, watermelon, stir-fried tofu and veggies, selenium and vitamin E. Wash it all down with a swig of green tea or pomegranate juice and you may be able to ward off prostate cancer....
  • Remembering Zvika

    By Dina Adler

    August 3, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    "I have the worst possible news," said our friend Avram Bar-Shai, calling from LAX. "Zvika has been killed in a helicopter crash and we are on the way to his funeral." Tzvi Luft

    She was referring to the death of Tzvi Luft, who died on July 24. He was 42. Esther and Avram Bar-Shai, Agoura...

  • Age Apparent

    By Randye Hoder

    February 23, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Of all the May-to-December romances that were not meant to be, mine must top the list.

    For starters, I met Rick in a hot tub -- a cliché I was sure we could never get over. We found ourselves at the same party, where he was being accosted by a woman who kept sidling close to him and...

  • Saul Kroll: Healing Hand at Cedars-Sinai

    By Tom Tugend

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

     

    "Our rabbis speak of yetzer hara and yetzer hatov, man's dual inclination toward evil and toward good, and what you make of your life depends on which you follow," Saul Kroll observes.

    Kroll is a firm believer in yetzer hatov, and the 87-year-old Westside resident...

  • Jack and Katy Seror: Help Knows No Age

    By Meira Held

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

     

    At first glance, 87-year-old Jack seror and his wife, Katy, are a kind, yet unassuming elderly couple, members of Sephardic Temple Tifereth Israel and loving grandparents. However, they are also leaders of the Greek Jewish community that resisted and survived the Nazis to...

  • Happy Birthday, Me!

    By J. Keith van Straaten

    July 28, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In a few weeks I'll turn 33 and, sadly, I realize I'm long past being anything "for my age." I'm no longer cute for my age, talented for my age, a good reader for my age. All qualifications and special considerations have long passed. There's nothing I can get away with now because,...

  • The Good, the Bad and the Confusing

    By Ed Shevick

    February 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    I am a senior citizen. I'm 82, look 65 and feel like 40. It is a very confusing time of life. People assume that you are over the hill. You know that you are still vital and have the ability to contribute to society.

    At the age of 50, I classified myself as lower-middle age. As the...

  • When Parents Get Preschool Jitters

    By Sharon Schatz Rosenthal

    October 21, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    It was the first day of preschool and 2-year-old Jessica didn't know any of other children in her new class at B'nai Tikvah Congregation Nursery School. But the child's anxiety paled in comparison that of her mother.

    "I worried that Jessica would get her feelings hurt or that she...

  • 20-Somethings

    By Amy Klein

    August 26, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Do you remember what it's like to be in your 20s?

    You've just finished college, or maybe you've had an entry-level job or two, or maybe you've put off entering "the real world" for another couple of years by going into grad school and into unbearable debt. You're wondering what it...

  • Donor Pool Swim

    By Jessica Ravitz

    April 29, 2004 | 8:01 pm

    Few days have haunted me like April 15, 2002. It was the day Time magazine screamed out from its cover that women cannot have it all.

    Like a slap to the face, the writer reported that the biological odds are against getting pregnant after 35 and that stories of women conceiving into...

  • Centenarian Recalls Steps of Survival

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    April 15, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    When she was in her 30s, Hansi Goetter developed a mysterious illness. Although her doctors couldn't determine the cause, they told her she had only a few months to live.

    That was 70 years ago. Last month, Goetter celebrated her 104th birthday in the company of her daughter, Erica...

  • Missing: My Mojo

    By Teresa Strasser

    March 18, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I can't explain it any better than this. I think I've lost my mojo. That phrase has been going through my head for months now. Lost my mojo.

    How do you know you've lost your mojo? You get a couple clues.

    I'm eating dinner alone at a restaurant when an attractive older man...

  • Age-Old Dilemma

    By Carin Davis

    May 8, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    My friend Lindsay's friend, Michelle, hosted a 30th birthday bash for her friend, Beth, last Saturday night. So of course I was there.

    And so was birthday girl Beth's friend Michael's friend, Rob. And Rob was hot.

    Six-foot-two before breakfast, with broad shoulders and blue eyes,...

  • Age of Restoration

    By Gina Nahai

    June 21, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    I'm two hours late for a noon invitation, my eyes itching from the unfamiliar weight of mascara so early in the day, and as I drive through town I'm rehearsing the many excuses I think I'll have to offer my host. It's a Sunday in June, and I'm about to celebrate a cousin's high...

  • Two Mothers

    By Ellen Jaffe-Gill

    May 10, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    At first glance, it would be hard to imagine two women with less in common than my mother and my husband's mother. You can begin with the obvious differences in cultural and religious background: my mother grew up Jewish in the Bronx, while my mother-in-law, a Presbyterian, has lived...
