Martha and Dave are in their mid-50’s and they make up the middle section of the sandwich generation. Dave’s father lives with them and his mother is in a nearby assisted living facility. They have a daughter in high school and a 26-year-old son who recently moved back home when he got laid off from his first post-college job. Baby boomers like Martha and Dave are giving up to 40 hours a week of unpaid care for elderly parents while balancing child-rearing and full-time jobs. How can they make this work?

Are you a member of the “Sandwich Generation?” This designation — which applies to people caring for their aging parents while supporting their own children — may be applicable to you if you’re either a younger baby boomer, born in the late 1950s or early 1960s, or an older member of “Generation X,” born in the mid-1960s. But any way you slice it, being in the “Sandwich” group is probably going to present you with some challenges, particularly of the financial kind — so you’ll need to make the right moves.

In the wake of the downturn that launched in 2008, it’s old news by now that the construction industry took a massive hit. Nearly half of those in the construction business were forced to find work elsewhere. Today, even as the housing market — and by default the contracting industry — rejuvenates, reports over the summer showed a weaker pool of skilled labor available to meet the spike in demand for new homes. But you wouldn’t know it by all the new homes that will be available in Ahwatukee!

Beholding the late James Gandolfini doing a lovely job in a change-of-pace role significantly intensifies the already funny/sad aspects of "Enough Said," an engaging comic romance set amid the minefields that imperil starting up mid-life relationships. The title notwithstanding, writer-director Nicole Holofcener's look at a 50-ish divorced mother with a daughter about to leave home is never at a loss for words, many of them quite amusing, making the film a leading contender for best girls' night movie of the season.

We’ve all heard the adage “Use it or lose it,” and that couldn’t be more accurate in regards to our cognitive performance, with the first sign of an aging brain being that “tip of the tongue” phenomenon. We’ve come to accept that misplacing our keys, losing our train of thought mid-sentence, or forgetting the name of a familiar face is to be expected at about the same time we start needing reading glasses. Not necessarily so, report neuropsychologists and nutritional researchers. Although the brain can shrink as much as one-half to 1 percent annually in mid-life and memory starts to wane in our 30’s, there are things we can do to stave off this decline:
