Abstract This study examined how relevant Rowe and Kahn's three criteria of successful aging were to older adults' self-portrayals in online dating profiles: low probability of disease and disability, high functioning, and active life engagement.
In this cross-sectional study, online dating profiles of older adults were randomly selected and coded based on the criteria. Few profiles were indicative of successful aging due to the low prevalence of the first two criteria; the third criterion, however, was identified in many profiles. Native Americans were significantly less likely than other ethnic groups to highlight the first two criteria.
Younger age predicted presenting the first criterion. Women's presentation of the third criterion remained significantly high with age. The findings suggest that the criteria may be unimportant to older adults when seeking partners, or they may reflect the exclusivity of this construct.

Despite the high prevalence of walking difficulties and widespread use of walking aids in later life, to date, there has been minimal scholarly interest in the study of canes and walkers. The study was informed by an interpretive approach grounded in feminist disability theory, and was guided by the following research questions How do older men and women perceive and experience having walking restrictions in later life?
How do older men and women perceive and experience the use of a cane or a walker in their everyday lives? Using a qualitative descriptive method, I conducted a combination of sit-down and walk-along interviews with six male and 18 female cane and walker users aged 67 to The men and women each took part in two sit-down interviews, during which I asked them to discuss what it was like to have walking limitations and to regularly use a walking aid. In addition, participants completed one walk-along interview, during which I accompanied them on an outing to a location of their choosing.
View record. Body image has been associated with physical activity engagement, life satisfaction, and eating behaviours. Study one explored how women perceived, experienced, and coped with their aging bodies, and examined their perceptions of the utility of self-compassion for the management of aging body-related changes. Participants were accepting yet critical of the physical changes accompanying aging.
Self-compassion for the aging body was viewed as idealistic and contextual. The participants were anxious about body decline. Body-related shame and guilt permeated their stories; they were frustrated with body changes and with their inabilities to engage in certain activities. The women concurrently told stories of body and physical activity-related pride to reassure themselves and others that they were taking responsibility for their health. Study three explored the stories of aging recounted by a year-old woman, which were permeated by narratives of acceptance and resistance.
Annabelle accepted yet attempted to slow body decline while facing breast cancer, widowhood, retirement, and ageism. These experiences elicited body shame, sadness, self-pity, anger, anxiety, and pride, and were coped with using cognitive reframing, community engagement, appearance management strategies, and end of life preparations. Overall, these dissertation findings contribute to our understanding of the multidimensionality of body image by drawing attention to the cognitions, emotions, and behaviours involved in how older women perceive and cope with changes to body functioning, health, and appearance.
The findings also highlight the role of cultural age and body norms in shaping later life experiences in the physical domain. When the Paralympic Movement is discussed, it is predominantly described as both an extension of the Olympic Movement and an uncorrupted version of Olympism. Yet to define the Paralympics only in reference to the Olympic Movement is to ignore its rich history and the unique factors that continue to inform the practice of disability sport. In this research, I collaborated with five Paralympians to create a blog that discussed disability sport and the Paralympic Movement.
Collectively, the team published posts on disability sport-related topics and recruited readers to the site. Over a period of 14 months, the blog was visited 9, times by individuals in more than 90 countries, resulting in posted comments.
I conducted interviews with blog team members and with 20 individuals who were reading and commenting on the blog. Drawing on new social movement theory and literature into the use of online communication by social movements, I address how blogs are being employed within the Paralympic Movement and the value they have in promoting and advocating for disability sport.

Familiarize yourself with program requirements.
You want to learn as much as possible from the information available to you before you reach out to a faculty member. Be sure to visit the graduate degree program listing and program-specific websites. Check whether the program requires you to seek commitment from a supervisor prior to submitting an application.
For some programs this is an essential step while others match successful applicants with faculty members within the first year of study. Focus your search. Identify specific faculty members who are conducting research in your specific area of interest. Read up on the faculty members in the program and the research being conducted in the department. Be certain that their research is indeed what you are hoping to study. Make a good impression. Compose an error-free and grammatically correct email addressed to your specifically targeted faculty member, and remember to use their correct titles.
Do not send non-specific, mass emails to everyone in the department hoping for a match. Address the faculty members by name. Your contact should be genuine rather than generic. Include a brief outline of your academic background, why you are interested in working with the faculty member, and what experience you could bring to the department. The supervision enquiry form guides you with targeted questions.
Ensure to craft compelling answers to these questions. Highlight your achievements and why you are a top student. Demonstrate that you are familiar with their research: Convey the specific ways you are a good fit for the program.
