Author: Frank Topping
Are our current ways of talking about "the problem of adolescence" really that different than those of past generations? For the past decade, Act Your Age! has provided a provocative and now classic analysis of the accepted ways of viewing teens. By employing a groundbreaking "history of the present" methodology that resists traditional chronology, author Nancy Lesko analyzes both historical and present social and political factors that produce the presumed "natural adolescent." This resulting seminal work in the field of youth study forces readers to rethink the dominant interpretations on the social construction of adolescence from the 19th century through the present day. This new edition is updated throughout and includes a full new chapter on 1950s-era assumptions about adolescence and the corresponding connections to teens today. As in all chapters, Lesko provides careful examination of the concerns of nationalism, sexuality, and social order in terms of how they are projected onto the definitions of adolescents in the media, in schools, and in the home.

In USA Today bestselling author Talia Hibbert’s newest rom-com, the flightiest Brown sister crashes into the life of an uptight B&B owner and has him falling hard—literally. Eve Brown is a certified hot mess. No matter how hard she strives to do right, her life always goes horribly wrong—so she’s given up trying. But when her personal brand of chaos ruins an expensive wedding (someone had to liberate those poor doves), her parents draw the line. It's time for Eve to grow up and prove herself—even though she's not entirely sure how… Jacob Wayne is in control. Always. The bed and breakfast owner’s on a mission to dominate the hospitality industry—and he expects nothing less than perfection. So when a purple-haired tornado of a woman turns up out of the blue to interview for his open chef position, he tells her the brutal truth: not a chance in hell. Then she hits him with her car—supposedly by accident. Yeah, right. Now his arm is broken, his B&B is understaffed, and the dangerously unpredictable Eve is fluttering around, trying to help. Before long, she’s infiltrated his work, his kitchen—and his spare bedroom. Jacob hates everything about it. Or rather, he should. Sunny, chaotic Eve is his natural-born nemesis, but the longer these two enemies spend in close quarters, the more their animosity turns into something else. Like Eve, the heat between them is impossible to ignore—and it’s melting Jacob’s frosty exterior.

Act Your Age Age is the story of a socially awkward tomboy gym teacher raised by a marine who always wanted a son. She awakes after a fall in a "magical well" seemingly having been transformed into the twelve-year old boy-version of herself. She struggles between her new kid life, and finding a way back to her old self where she'd have to fight a rival teacher to keep her job and win the love of a handsome guidance counselor. Act Your Age is a screenplay, meaning it has been written with the goal of having it produced as a movie. You read it much as you would a play. The action lines go to the margins, telling you where and what is happening. Dialog between the characters is in the middle of the page.Not every single detail of the scene or action is written out. This is done with the intent of letting the director and actors bring some of their own interpretation to how the story is portrayed. The fun part for you as a text reader of this movie is that you can make it look and sound however you want in your head. It's movie night in your cranium, have fun.

"Act your age! From her mother's admonition in childhood, a middle ages, twice-married mother of four and a product of the deep south of the seventies makes her way though a meandering inner journey towards a quiet epiphany revealing what her mother's words really mean. This rite of passage at the ungainly age of fifty unfolds through twelve memoir-like narratives that will evoke both laughter and tears. Each chapter is an independent reflection on the dozens of daily anecdotes all of us live each day in the course of growing up and growing older. Reading the narratives may be like going through a shoe box of old photographs you find in the attic, not arrange in any seeming order, but, in total, creating a logic of their own. Memorable characters like Papa, Aunt Norma, Harrison Augustus Turnbull, and Artemesia rise from the narrator's southern Gothic roots. The narrator, nameless Every Woman, prides herself in being an introspective and competent adult, but her naiveté demonstrates that being an adult a really a state of mind, and finding truth is like entertaining company with chipped china. Coping with life's poignant struggles, like disease, old age, suicide, and murder, and its ordinary ones, like child-raising, teaching, pets, and church-going, she seeks sense in the nonsense with humor and with love"--Page 4 of cover.

Win McFadden, now in his nineties, is an international senior track and field star who still participates in U.S. Masters and Senior Olympics competition. In You Dont Have to Act Your Age, he has written a book with a radical mission: to convince the many millions of people over the age of 65 that the remaining years of their lives can be healthy, joyful ones. He poses the following questions: Suppose that in our effort to be as healthy as we could possibly be, we engaged in a pursuit that also let us have funand that while having fun we became totally absorbed and therefore willingly disciplined in our efforts? Suppose further that because of our dedication and discipline, we were eventually rewarded by public recognition and tangible rewards? What if as our days sped by in this happy, rewarding, and disciplined existence, we also met large numbers of friends who were similarly healthy, dedicated, and interesting? And suppose that through the friends we made and the recognition we received we became able to be of service to other older people who needed help in bringing themselves to a condition of greater health and fitnessand therefore happiness. That would be true satisfaction of the highest order. He claims that his positive answers to these questions have been the result of his participating in Masters athletics and teaching physical fitness classes for older adults. In this second edition of You Dont Have to Act Your Age, McFadden has added tips for seniors on how to choose an exercise class that meets their needs, as well as advice for younger relatives of seniors who now live in convalescent facilities on how to encourage their loved ones to remain as physically fit as possible.

It was just a dumb joke, but the joke turns out to be on Richard. Follow his journey submission and discovery. -- “I swear. It was like being out with a five-year-old. Maybe I should have ordered from the children’s menu and cut up the meat for you. And don’t you ever speak to Carol that way again. Not only is she my boss’s daughter, but she is my friend.” Her wagging finger, inches from the tip of my nose, emphasized her point. “Well. Speak up,” she said. My mouth moved, but nothing came out. Lesley grabbed my ear. I was shocked as she dragged me to a corner of the living room. “Since you aren’t in any mood to speak, you can stand there and think about it while I change out of this dress. It’s obvious I have no need for it tonight.” -- Richard's world was about to change in ways he never imagined.

Author: Thom McFadden
Thom McFadden works from the premise that, every day, no matter what our age or current health status, we have a very clear choice: We can grow older or we can grow younger.Some people might not see aging as a choice - they see it as something they have no control over, just like the passage of time. You can decide if you want to spend your days feeling vital, energetic, and healthy, and joyfully use your body to exercise, travel, and play with your children (or grandchildren) - or if you want to be confined to a life of joint and back pain, limited mobility, and a lack of physical strength that keeps you sitting on a bench and watching others do the things you once did.You already possess the power to determine your body's true age. The choice is yours: Passively allow the aging process to take over, or actively counter the aging.Until very recently, medical researchers believed that many of the negative effects of aging were inevitable. As we grow old, conventional wisdom has told us our skin sags, our muscles waste away, we gain weight, and we eventually develop a chronic disease, such as heart disease or cancer, which will kill us. (Is it any wonder we are such a youth-obsessed culture?) But in the past few years, scientists have made tremendous discoveries that offer a different picture of what it looks like to get older.Whether you are an over-40-year-old working parent needing a quick home-based workout, a middle-aged executive who needs to de-stress and rebalance between meetings, or a baby boomer who is looking for new ways to stay fit and vital, Stop Acting Your Age will give you the inspiration and understanding to feel and look stronger, healthier, and happier - for many years to come.Aging starts in your mind, and Thom McFadden will be your acting coach to think, act, and feel young again. Thom prepares you for your next developmental step to be the star in your play of life. You will see changes that will delight and amaze you. And remember, you can have anything you want, anything you can represent in your mind ... so, if you want to improve and want to "hack" your aging, follow Thom's advice and Stop Acting Your Age.

Author: Patrick Alexander
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
This book examines the nature of age as an aspect of social identity and its relationship to experiences of formal education. Providing a new and critical approach to debates about age and social identity, the author explores why age remains such an important aspect of self-making in contemporary society. Through an ethnographic account of a secondary school in the south-east of England, the author poses three principal questions. Why are schools in English organised according to age? How do pupils and teachers learn to ‘act their age’ while at school? Ultimately, why does age remain such an important and complex organising concept for modern society? Cutting across lines of class and gender, this timely book will be of interest to students and scholars of self-making and identity in educational contexts, and others interested in how schooling socialises young people into categories of age as the foundational building blocks of modern society.

George Burns once remarked, “You can't help getting older, but you can help getting old.” With twenty-five years of experience working with seniors and studying aging, the Erickson Corporation has amassed a wealth of insights that support this maxim. In Old Is the New Young, three leading specialists take the latest clinical research findings on aging and how to improve and maintain health to produce a one-of-a-kind book replete with easily accessible tools and simple steps that all those over fifty can apply to their own lives. Old is the New Young approaches aging as a three-part process: keeping what's intact; recovering what's been lost; and compensating when necessary. Weaving in inspiring life stories with plenty of laughs from seniors themselves, it comprises four sections that address the key aspects of life—mental, physical, social, and financial—and how to keep them thriving as we grow . . . young.
