You know it has been part of my mission to raise labor standards and increase protections for all workers — especially for our most vulnerable and immigrant workers. And many of you helped us educate them by taking part in our We Can Help campaign. You helped us make it easier for vulnerable workers to know their rights — in many cases, to let them know they actually have rights — to be able to speak up on the job and file complaints — without fear.
An analysis of how different generations are getting their news suggests that these trends are likely to continue. In 2010, for the first time, the internet has surpassed television as the main source of national and international news for people younger than 30. Since 2007, the number of 18 to 29 year olds citing the internet as their main source has nearly doubled, from 34% to 65%. Over this period, the number of young people citing television as their main news source has dropped from 68% to 52%.

COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA OFFICE OF LONG-TERM LIVING PENNSYLVANIA SENIOR CARE AND SERVICES STUDY COMMISSION
This fact places providers in a difficult position of attempting to meet consumers varied preferences while complying with regulations and an inequitable and arbitrary funding system that has failed to meet the actual cost of care for decades.
For example, the capital costs for nursing facilities under the Medicaid program are capped at one-tenth of the actual cost and have been for over 20 years despite numerous and costly increases in regulations during that period of time.
Conclusions: The results suggest that higher extraversion and lower neuroticism are associated with reduced risk of mortality in old age and that these associations are mediated in part by personality-related patterns of cognitive, social, and physical activity.
Key Words: neuroticism • extraversion • mortality • cognitive activity • social activity • physical activity
One of the biggest problems seniors face hasen’t even been mentioned. The cost of health care related issues. Most already know that medicare will not cover all health related issues. Many seniors feel they will need to work till they drop and feel they can rely on employer funded health plans well into their retirement years. The economic situation we find ourselves in today requires we do more for ourselves. A local company just announced they are going to cut back 7800 jobs. Who do you think they will look at first? Think maybe the 50+ will be the first to go?
After 63 years of Independence and democracy experiment there are segments of people who are not treated at par with others, there is injustice and discrimination towards them. One of the most neglected and ignored segment is of Senior Citizens. Elders are not considered as part of mainstream, there is unjust treatment to those who gain 60 years of age, and they are suddenly considered ‘Retired’, good for nothing. Government and Civil Society are not bothered of this experienced and skill group of people.
