Ageist Attacks Against President Biden Reinforce Outdated Stereotypes —and Hurt Younger People, Too
When President Joe Biden tripped on the stairs up to Air Force One on March 19, the incident immediately touched off a flurry of mockery. Fox News host Sean Hannity declared the President to be “frail.” “He didn’t know where the hell he was,” former President Donald Trump said in an interview with Lara Trump. Saturday Night Live, no stranger to easy jokes about aging Presidents, poked fun both at the fall and at a March 25 press conference when a reporter asked Biden if he planned to run for a second term—a question, quipped SNL’s Michael Che, which was “probably the nicest w...

What Are Recommendations for Using Portable Listening Devices?
In this study listening to audiobooks, movies, or playing videogames was less likely to exceed the threshold. However the use of PLDs has increased overtime, particularly with the need for online educational activities due the COVID-19 pandemic.

Problems associated with increased noise aren’t just hearing loss but other aural problems including tinnitus, sound distortion, difficulty understanding speech, dizziness, and earache. Other “extra-auditive da...

A genetic patch to prevent hereditary deafness
(Radboud University Medical Center) They can hear well up to about forty years old, but then suddenly deafness strikes people with DFNA9. The cells of the inner ear can no longer reverse the damage caused by a genetic defect in their DNA. Researchers at Radboud university medical center have now developed a " genetic patch " for this type of hereditary deafness, with which they can eliminate the problems in the hearing cells. Further research in animals and humans is needed. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

How the brain processes sign language
(Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences) Over 70 million deaf people use sign languages as their preferred communication form. Although they access similar brain structures as spoken languages, it hasn't been identified the brain regions that process both forms of language equally. MPI CBS has now discovered that Broca's area in the left hemisphere, central for spoken languages, is also crucial for sign languages. This is where the grammar and meaning are processed, regardless of whether it is spoken or signed language. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Even in a state where 80-mph speed limits are normal, ground transportation across long distances is risky for the Moderna mRNA-1273 vaccine, which must be used within 12 hours of thawing. The group’s destination was Havre, Mont., 30 miles from the Canadian border.

What Are Potential Complications of Hearing Aids?
Discussion Hearing loss can range from profound deafness to fairly minor loss. The causes vary based on age, type of loss (sensorineuronal or conductive, about half of hearing loss in children has a genetic cause), degree and audiometric configuration. Sensorineuronal hearing loss involves the cochlea and neural connections to the brain and auditory cortex. Conductive hearing loss involves structures from the external ear to the oval window. Deafness is defined as a hearing loss> 90 dB. Hearing loss can affect the living and learning of children more than many people realize. “A child with a mild hearing loss can ...
