"By Jay Boehmer SEPTEMBER 06, 2004 -- Credit cardholders favor cash back over any other incentive, according to a new study that accentuates how consumer card loyalty programs continue to outshine commercial programs, which never offer cash-back rewards. Yet, vendors are finding new ways to use reward programs. American Express this summer began offering small business commercial cardholders loyalty points for compliance and rewards maximization consulting and technology firm Zevez Corp. helps companies cash in on cash-back and other rewards when paying business expenses."

""My breath is noisy," said Lepa, as the rest of us found him waiting near the summit of 'Euakafa, some 300 feet above the emerald water where our boats lay at anchor. I've never met a man of 50 more fit than he is, though, and I suspect his comment was more courteous than sincere. For our part, the cardiovascular implications of this trek were dismayingly clear."

"Fail to plan. This month we feature a report on a team planning to take part in the Plymouth to Dakar rally, which has also been dubbed an old bangers race. Ultimately the stated objective of this event is to raise funds for charities and worthy organisations both in the UK and West Africa, which is fair enough, but the event has been criticised in some quarters for its lack of organisational back up and support. Since overland travel is very much part of the Land Rover scene, both in the past and currently, its a matter that should concern all of us."

Ageism in America -
From: involvement.typepad.com

"

Many Americans chuckle at such humor. Others see it as offensive, as one more sign of pervasive ageism in America.

It s a bias some also see in substandard conditions at nursing homes, in pension-plan cutbacks by employers, in the relative invisibility of the elderly on television shows and in advertisements.

Daily we are witness to, or even unwitting participants in, cruel imagery, jokes, language, and attitudes directed at older people, contends Dr. Robert Butler, president the International Longevity Center-USA and the person who coined the term ageism 35 years ago.

Concerns of elderly move higher on national agenda
That ageism exists, in a society captivated by youth culture and taut-skinned good looks, is scarcely debatable. But as the oldest of the 77 million baby boomers approach their 60s, the elderly and their concerns will inevitably move higher on the national agenda.

Already, there is lively debate as to whether ageism will ease or grow worse in the coming decades of boomer senior citizenship. Erdman Palmore, a professor emeritus at Duke University who has written or edited more than a dozen books on aging, counts himself cautiously among the optimists.

One can say unequivocally that older people are getting smarter, richer and healthier as time goes on, Palmore said. I ve dedicated most of my life to combating ageism, and it s tempting for me to see it everywhere. ... But I have faith that as science progresses, and reasonable people get educated about it, we will come to recognize ageism as the evil it is.

Palmore, 74, lives what he preaches challenging the stereotypes of aging by skydiving, whitewater rafting, bicycling his age in miles each birthday. He recently got a tattoo on his shoulder, though the image he chose was the relatively discreet symbol of the American Humanist Association.

What makes me mad is how aging, in our language and culture, is equated with deterioration and impairment, Palmore said. I don t know how we re going to root that out, except by making people more aware of it.

Number of seniors expected to double
To the extent that ageism persists, there will soon be many more potential targets. The number of Americans 65 and older is projected to double over the next three decades from 35.9 million to nearly 70 million, comprising 20 percent of the population in 2030 compared to less than 13 percent now.

The 85-and-over population is the fastest growing segment projected to grow from 4 million in 2000 to 19 million in 2050 as part of an unprecedented surge in longevity. Americans now turning 65 will live, on average, an additional 18 years.

Some researchers believe that ageism, in the form of negative stereotypes, directly affects longevity. In a study published by the American Psychological Association, Yale School of Public Health professor Becca Levy and her colleagues concluded that old people with positive perceptions of aging lived an average of 7.5 years longer than those with negative images of growing older.

Levy said many Americans start developing stereotypes about the elderly during childhood, reinforce them throughout adulthood, and enter old age with attitudes toward their own age group as unfavorable as younger people s attitudes.

It s possible to overcome the stereotypes, but they often operate without people s awareness, Levy said. Look at all the talk about plastic surgery, Botox the message is, 'Don t get old.'

Bias on the job
For thousands of American workers, it s the same message they claim to hear on the job. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has received more than 19,000 age discrimination complaints in each of the past two years, and has helped win tens of millions of dollars in settlements.

However, attorneys say age discrimination often is hard to prove. Only about one-seventh of the EEOC age cases were settled to the complainant s benefit.

Older Americans are finding innovatives ways to live and get care in their later years.

New Yorker Bill DeLong, 84, was fired three years ago from his longtime job as a waiter at a Shea Stadium restaurant, but he continues to seek out charitable volunteer assignments and still works as a waiter occasionally at special events.

I didn t give up, he said. A lot of my contemporaries give up too soon.

Seventy-eight-year-old Catherine Roberts stays active with New York City s Joint Public Affairs Committee for Older Adults, a coalition that encourages seniors to advocate on their own behalf on legislative and community issues.

I don t have time to get old, said Roberts, who came to New York from Maine in 1955. I m too busy.

Yet despite her upbeat outlook, she resents how some of her peers are treated. We re a culture that worships youth, she said. Seniors are getting pushed aside. I see people in my building whose families ignore them they fall through the cracks.

More geriatric specialists needed
For many older people, ageism surfaces most painfully in the context of health care. A report by the Alliance for Aging Research, presented to a Senate committee last year, said the elderly are less likely to receive preventive care and often lack access to doctors trained in their needs.

Only about 10 percent of U.S. medical schools require work in geriatric medicine. The American Geriatrics Society says there are only about 7,600 physicians nationwide certified as geriatric specialists not enough to meet demand and far below the 36,000 the society says will be needed by 2030.

While the society says the best way to attract more doctors to the field is to make Medicare practice more lucrative, some experts believe that many medical students also have negative attitudes toward the elderly that should be challenged.

In one such effort, the National Institute on Aging, working with Johns Hopkins Medical School and a Baltimore museum, teamed elderly people and first-year medical students in an art program in which they drew, made collages, sang songs and shared stories. A survey showed the students gained a more positive view of seniors and of geriatrics as a possible specialty.

Ageism also manifests itself in advertising. Though adults of all ages drink beer and buy cars, for example, TV and print ads for those products almost invariably feature youthful actors and models.

According to AARP, the lobbying group for people 50 and over, Americans in that age bracket account for half of all consumer spending but are targeted by just 10 percent of marketing. The dynamic is particularly potent in television, where network executives gear programming toward 18-to-34-year-olds because advertisers will pay more to reach those viewers.

When an older person sees a product targeted to a younger person, they re willing to buy it, but young people will not buy a product targeted to older person, said Jim Fishman, group publisher for AARP Publications.

Fishman, who oversees AARP s three magazines, predicts advertisers will increasingly tilt their messages toward older consumers as the baby boomers enter their 60s.

By and large, the wealth that resides in the older segment of the population is disposable wealth the kids are done with college, the mortgage is paid off, Fishman said. This older market is huge and feeling largely ignored.

Dealing with age
Looking ahead, Fishman foresees people of all ages, elderly included, gaining the ability to look more attractive than in the past thanks to developments ranging from Botox to fitness programs. He also expects a more deep-rooted change in society s view of aging as the 65-and-older ranks are filled with increasing numbers of computer-savvy boomers, eager for civic engagement and lifelong education programs.

Still, David Wolfe, whose book Ageless Marketing advises advertisers how to reach over-50 consumers, says ageism is likely to persist. There will always be people in society who can t come to terms with other people s aging because they can t come to terms with their own aging, he said.

Paul Kleyman, editor of the American Society on Aging s bimonthly newspaper, has testified before Congress that ageism is common in the mass media. He tells of a magazine editor who wanted fewer stories about prune faces, and of a Chicago talk radio station whose staff was told to screen out old-sounding callers.

Kleyman also detects some positive trends, including a growing number of newspapers assigning reporters to cover aging-related issues on a regular basis.

The drive in the news industry is for younger readers, but don t just ignore the loyal older readers you have, he said. We should be encouraging society to be receptive to a more active older generation, instead of looking at boomers as a burden that s going to drain the nation.

The short-term future of ageism may depend in large part on that question whether or not baby boomers are viewed by younger Americans as a rival for economic resources and political clout as Society Security and Medicare costs rise.

At the individual level of how people are treated, negative ageism is probably going decline a little, said Robert Binstock, professor of aging and public policy at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine in Cleveland. But at the societal level it s quite possible we ll see an increase in ageism, a sense of, Wow, what an unsustainable burden older people are going to be.

Bob Robinson, 88, of Aurora, Colo., a former director of services for the aging in Colorado, said he has encountered a generational gap while lobbying legislators on senior issues.

The politicians consider that with Social Security and Medicare and the other advantages that seniors have, we re in pretty good shape, Robinson said. It s true for a lot of us, but not for all of us. Many seniors worked for small businesses that had no retirement system.

Bobbie Sackman of New York City s Council of Senior Centers and Services agrees.

Catering to all
Boomers are not all white, middle-class suburbanites, she said. You will have the older people with greater resources, and that will in some ways change the image of aging. But you will also have those with less resources, coming from groups that already had faced discrimination, and now they will have the age thing added to the mix.

John Rother, policy director for the AARP, said the boomers, by their very numbers, are bound to change the public perception of aging.

It will be more visible, he said. People will survive longer, in better health. ... They ll feel the market should cater to them, the political system should cater to them, as it has their whole lives.

Whatever their political clout, the tens of millions of boomers will find that ageism is a unique form of bias in that it s universal potentially affecting all who live long enough.

Everyone has a vested interest in eradicating this prejudice, wrote Richard Butler, the International Longevity Center president, in a recent briefing paper. We all aspire to live to be old, and consequently we all must work to create a society where old age is respected, if not honored, and where persons who have reached old age are not marginalized.

gatlinburg trip -
From: www.livejournal.com
© - See article for copyright information.

" well, we had a great time in gatlinburg.  the drive down was loooooooong (6 hour trip took 8.5) but we got there with 9 minutes to spare before the check-in office closed at 10:30. :) 

the chalet had a bed/bath, pool room and deck with hot tub on the bottom level, living room, kitchen, bath & dining room on the middle level, and our bed/bath was on the top level with a tiny upper room with a 2-person jacuzzi tub.  we tried out the hot tub for a bit, played some pool, and then scott and i checked out the upper level jacuzzi tub before we crashed.



saturday we got a slow start and then headed out for horseback riding.  it was fun, but a little disappointing.  we weren't able to do anything other than walk with the horses (boo!) and we felt like the horses weren't very well cared for (double boo!).  it was also too expensive for what it was.  but, i love horses so i enjoyed myself even though it was a bit of a letdown.



after horseback riding we came home and took a nice long nap.  then we got cleaned up and headed into town to get some dinner.  we had a delicious steak dinner and then we walked around town and did a little shopping.  it's a fun place to people watch.

after the boys could take no more shopping, we headed back to the chalet and enjoyed the hot tub again, a couple of drinks and then went to bed.



sunday morning we got up and had breakfast at shoney's, then headed out to the whitewater rafting place.  it was only supposed to take 1 hour and 15 minutes, but it ended up taking 2 hours! (to go 40 miles - most of the drive was winding through smoky mountain state park).  we BARELY made it in time thank goodness, since if we missed our time slot we would have lost our money. 

anyway, the rafting was fun.  we ended up with a guide in our boat (which isn't really what we wanted).  she told us exactly what to do and i think it would have been a little more fun just to wing it, but we still had a really good time.  there were two boats full of this hispanic group and they were just wild and crazy.  just watching them made for good entertainment.  we got in a water fight with them at one point, but since the water was an icy 45 degrees, it wasn't as fun as it looked. :) 

didn't get any pictures of the rafting.  i meant to pick up a disposable waterproof camera on the way, but forgot.  kind of a bummer, but oh well.







on the way back we were pooped and didn't feel like getting cleaned up and going back out, so we grabbed a quick (and very mediocre) italian dinner in gatlinburg.  when we got home matt and susan went straight to bed and scott and i watched a movie in our bedroom (almost every room in the house had a big wall-mounted TV and DVD player).

we left around 10 on sunday and got home around 5.  it was a long drive, but i got a couple of naps in and read almost an entire book. 

i did really well being away from fisher.  i really didn't start missing him until sunday night, so i was pretty anxious to get home on monday.  when we got home he had a rash on his face and trunk which dr. brad said was definitely viral.  it was then that mom and dad confessed that he had had a fever off and on all weekend.  they didn't tell me because they didn't want me to worry.  they said he really had been acting fine for the most part, so i was fine with them not telling me.

today he managed to somehow slice a chunk off the pad of his finger and fall headfirst off the bed.  poor baby!  but he has finally started saying "mama" and really meaning me, so that makes me happy.  brad says he's going to walk any day now.  today we got our community center membership and i signed fisher up for swim lessons.  yay!


see lots more pictures (including one titled "THE HUMAN BRA!"here. "
 
 
How the time flies. -

" Google celebrates its bday on 09/09. we share the same star sign then.

Saturday: kgp-rachna (ranchi-patna) wing meet-up: Dudhhoo, BolBum were visiting bay-area. they live in NJ / detroit respectively. 7-8 of us met at lambu's house. Dudhhoo showcased his amazing talent for cocktails - we had such a nice time. and i smoked a few cigarettes. (it showed when i backpacked next morning up the mission peak - though the time-taken actually improved, i got fairly pooped.) All of these guys are married - so we boys had to sit out in the patio to smoke and drink. we were drinking *lemonade*. - the wives didnt bother to ask us to elaborate on what kind of lemonade. they must be tired of these silly games by now. and for some reason none of them wanted to have anything hard that day. anyway. we smoked. and drank. and sento-ed. at some point someone (maybe neighbours, maybe the wives) got jealous of us. cops knocked at the door and asked us to keep it a bit down. we decided to break-up the party - i mean, how can u talk and not be loud ? we broke up the party at 12:00 to meet the next day.

Sunday: Frisco on labour day, sucks: got up at 6:00 in the morning. Nandi and i, were at the trail head by 7:15. we wanted to avoid the severe sunburns. we did good. 1h 30m with fairly loaded backpacks. by 10:15 we were done - back on the trail-head. The rest of the day was spent driving towards and away from San Francisco, looking for parking lots, driving to Sausalito, apparently for an Art Festival (we arrived just in time to see the gates close), idling around sausalito etc. (You know, i appreciate ppl who go to plays, and art festivals. but when they try to rescue an unwilling philistine like me, i can only pity them.)

Monday: birthday. and i had my first whitewater rafting experience : got up at 4:00. drove to Ammundi's place. and eventually we were out driving towards Auburn by 5:30-5:40. we were a gang of 12 ppl for this rafting expedition - six on each raft. the stretch was on American River, middle fork - we did the 18-miler. it has a couple of 5s. one of these 5s comes at the beginning itself - we got fairly drenched by that time. besides there were these water fights. On the difficulty levels of rapids - the water-mass available at a given time in the year can change the difficulty levels. less water may expose rocks, which makes it more exciting - literally adding an edge to the adventure. or it can be a damper - since less water could take away the speed, bcuz there is not enough momentum to bang ur boat rather rough on the rocky sides of rapids / chutes. I learnt that if i kept paddling, i could use that as my *3rd point of support* - just as the guide told us. except when he told us to stop paddling and dunk inside the raft and hold on to whatever we could. So paddle i did - going down the rapids, in foaming waters. furiously. total adrenalin rush. what amazing fun. really.

Now, some gossip. There were these 2 couples, and ammundi, besides me on our raft. Our guide was Viking Jeff. A short stocky guy, most probably in his 40s, a couple of bad teeth in the front, hilly-billy accent, and generally of sunny disposition. Kind of guy who will punctuate everything he says with a couple of winks and a wide grin. And from the very beginning he was like, coming on to this woman. her hubby was on board with us. and it was sort of making us wince and smile at the same time. this proved to be by far the most adventurous and suspenseful activity of the day long trip. it was a touch and go stuff at times. i guess, she may have been *disinclined* to make him unhappy. she didnt know how to swim. and under such circumstances - she just wanted to keep her most likely saviour in good spirits. she felt safe sitting close to viking jeff, too. [thats my analysis. :) ha. ha.] on the other hand, maybe she liked the *adventure*. well. she was not discouraging Jeff too much - i mean she was breaking into songs, and was not too mindful of her movements etc. Among other things, Viking Jeff mentioned this party of chinese women who sang songs to him - and flashed him. and that sort of thing. and our little lady friend broke into a song just after that - *O Manjhi Re*, ammundi and i also hummed along merrily. (the woman, unfortunately did not flash Jeff.) Jeff asked, what the lyrics meant ? The hubby explained it off as - one of those folk songs. she likes folk songs ? eh. i like the folks who like songs. - Viking Jeff expounded on his musical tastes. Once, after one of the many awkward moments, the other woman on our raft - a wiry fearless woman in her 40s most probably - looked at me and said: u are not going to get totally mad are you ? ... and i smiled, and said : not my problem. why wud i get territorial about something that does not belong to me. we all laughed. ha.ha. :) not my problem indeed. i mean, where was the problem anyway. the whole crazy thing was amusing enough. i for my part got along quite well with Jeff. Got all his dirty jokes right away. spotted the b***-shaped rock-formations on his first cue - yeah. i can see what u are talking about. (with a wry smile / smirk). paddled all day long. and learnt to pick up currents, asked questions (that diverted him from making those incessant passes sometimes. unfortunately.) The rafting ride was rather rough in patches. (and my a** hurts as if i have been riding a horse without saddles - btw, i have never done horse-riding. i just imagine that horse-riding w/o saddles must be rather rough.)

After our rafting expedition - we went out to an irish pub. and had a nice time out there. one of the couples was this not-married-but-living-in-for-18-yrs family - both are iyers, from a fairly conservative families. they had met each other when they were at XLRI long time back. they were delightfully impressive when they spoke - guiding the conversations through many different topics; adding so much fun and flavour to the whole evening. it is nice to see people grow old so gracefully.

Tuesday, the woman at hertz rental : So i go to the hertz rental after dropping off my Acura at the body shop. and this woman - an asian looking female - with a *bod* (and she must have figured out i am looking at her), is all *dear*/*hon*-ing me. so where do u work ? ah. i have seen that one. hmm. i bet they pay u well there. so are u rich ? ahan. what did u do when this guy hit ur car, were u mad ? i bet u were like - gimme ur ins id and drivers license and thats it. u look like a silent and shy type. is your name, like, made up from your mom's and dad's name ? You know, cuz for us filipinos that happens a lot; like Ed from the father, Nell from mom will make EdNell - ya. i know i know that does not sound very bright, Sonell, now does it.         no. she did not ask me if i had a girl-friend. some barber-women have - but no rental-car clerks have asked me that yet.

So you can understand why at the end of this whole transaction, by the time i am out of this trance-like state - i am stuck with this chevy-cavalier. this sucks. really. i am pathetic. (and i thought about Viking Jeff, the guide on the rafting tour, and our little lady friend in the raft, as soon i was driving out in the f-ed up chevy. okay. i realize i have issues. and major double-standard issues.)
