It’s often been a common question among the young that what’s the perfect age to get married? One of the UK’s best-known marital therapists perhaps has a researched-based answer to it.

He suggests that these superstitions take place, in part, in the wedding day, where some couples will spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on everything from the “perfect” dress to the “perfect” location. “They think: ‘if I’ve said it…

Better with age? Tom Cruise’s latest ‘Impossible’ tops box office

Improbable? Maybe, but "Mission Impossible -- Fallout," the sixth and latest stunt-filled edition of the Tom Cruise action franchise has topped the weekend box office in North America, outperforming the five earlier "Impossibles."

Surgeons’ skills improve with age: study

WASHINGTON: Surgeons’ skills may improve with age, and male and female surgeons perform equally well, a recent U.S. study finds. Medicare patients’ risk of dying in the month after an operation steadily fell as their surgeon’s age increased, Dr. Yusuke Tsugawa of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in Los Angeles and colleagues report in The BMJ. There was little difference between mortality among patients of male or female doctors, with one exception. “Patients treated by female surgeons in their 50s had the…

Risk of irregular heart rhythm rises with weight and age: study

The risk of developing an irregular heart rhythm increases as people age and become overweight or obese, spiking after age 50 for men and age 60 for women, a recent study suggests.

‘Common risk factors for depression change as people age’

WASHINGTON: Different types of problems are most likely to afflict people at different times of life, so common risk factors for depression change over the years, too, Dutch researchers say. But when a risk factor is uncommon among peers – like widowhood or poor health in youth – it can have an outsized effect on depression risk, the study team reports in The American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry. “A wide range of risk factors for depression is relevant across the entire life span,” said lead author Roxanne Schaakxs…

China turns to robots as workers age

WUZHEN: Flat, orange robots glide under stationary cars and ferry them to empty Chinese parking bays, using space more efficiently and, their creators say, reducing driver stress. It is one of a number of elegant -- and expensive -- mechanical solutions China is turning to as it faces an ageing population, which, even in the world's most populous country, is making workers harder to come by. With an eye on the rising numbers of cars on Chinese roads, Hikvision has been testing a robotic parking system in Wuzhen, 130…
