Insight: Proposition 28 / News Network: Woodland Daily Democrat / Healthy Aging Brain / Sherman Baker and Autumn Sky


 
 
Proposition 28 Proponents of Proposition 28 say the ballot measure will reduce the time a California legislator can spend in office by up to five years.  But opponents say prop 28 will actually increase the number of terms a legislator spends in the Capitol because, while it reduces the total number of years in office to 12, it increases the amount of time a legislator can spend in each chamber.  We explore the merits of Proposition 28 to see how it will affect Californians and whether it's good policy ornot.  We'll speak with Phillip Ung, Policy Advocate for California Common Cause, a non-profit lobbying organization and Jon Fleishman, of the Flashreport.

A Healthy Aging Brain The fourth in a series of Scientific American books on the brain, "The Scientific American Healthy Aging Brain: The Neuroscience of Making the Most of Your Mature Mind" is the latest book by Judith Horstman.  It is an engaging narrative about our brain as it ages with us.  It presents a realistic and encouraging overview of the well-aged brain, a sobering look at what can go wrong, and the latest in what neuroscience is finding that might help us stay healthy longer.  We'll speak with Judith Horstman who will expand on how there is plenty of good news: While our brain does slow down with passing years, far from disintegrating, the healthy mature brain fades quite slowly.  Short-term memory may not be what it once was, but the elder brain remains able to change and learn well into old age.  Judith Horstman's upcoming book talks are at:
  • Folsom Public Library 10 am Fri June 1
  • Rancho Cordova Public Library, 2 pm Sat June 2
