Teaching at 102; Of Mice And Pigs; Florida Reigns

 August 18, 2023
Yep. Stories I think you might like to read.

 

1. Devoted to children swimming, even at 102

“I often said that I will keep teaching and swimming until they can wheel me in a wheelchair and dump me in the water,” Peggy Konzack said.

This is how that generation was raised. In service to others as long as they muster the energy.

Here is Konzack's story from People. 

 2. Florida Sets The Pace At NSG

Maybe it was closer proximity to Pittsburgh than California or Texas, its chief rivals in senior games when it comes to producing Masters athletes, but perhaps Florida just had a really, really good meet in the Steel City at The National Senior Games.

Florida led all states with 576 total medals (244 gold, 152 silver and 180 bronze). The total is 21 more than the second highest medal winning state of Ohio, according to nsga.com. Rounding out the top five medal-winning states were Pennsylvania, Maryland and North Carolina.

Snow birds start your engines early.

3. This Link Too Good To Pass Up 

From a terrific site, Long Youth Span, this link to a paper that pig's blood makes mice younger, or something like that.

UCLA professor Steve Horvath and Harold Katcher, the inventor of the world's oldest rat were behind this studyand its implications are significant.

There was rejuvenation of blood, heart, and liver tissue by more than 50%, as measured by epigenetic clocks. 

No, the idea is not to live forever. It is to heal from the new diseases, the environmental diseases, mankind foists upon itself. Studies like these are what promote science and cures for diseases yet to come.
