Creating Language Crimes How Law Enforcement Uses and Misuses Language

This ethnic cleaning of Armenians, and other minorities, including Assyrians, Pontian and Anatolian Greeks, is today known as the Armenian Genocide. Despite pressure from Armenians and activists worldwide, Turkey still refuses to acknowledge the genocide, claiming that there was no premeditation on the deaths of the Armenians. The Armenians have lived in the southern Caucasus since the 7th century BC and have fought to maintain control against other groups such as the Mongolian, Russian, Turkish, and Persian empires. In the 9th century, the reigning king of Armenia became a Christian. He mandated that the official religion of the empire be Christianity, although in the 7th century AD all countries surrounding Armenia were Muslim. Armenians continued to be practicing Christians, despite the fact that they were many times conquered and forced to live under harsh rule.

Is 79 the new 55? If you re going by when our intellectual skills start to decline and dull due to the passage of time, then it might be. According to researchers at Simon Fraser University in Canada, things start going south at age 79. They came to that conclusion after studying 8,855 volunteers aged 66 years to 99 years. The game recorded the players moves, and researchers analyzed hours of data from it. As expected, the speed with which the volunteers made decisions, and shifted between tasks, declined with age.

Many studies have documented the gradual deterioration of cognitive skills over time. But in this study,, the drop, albeit small, was detected first among 79 year olds. In fact, for every 65 years after age 79, cognitive speed dropped by about 65%. And the results could not be explained by the fact that the players were getting better at navigating the game over time the age-related decline remained, even among those with more skill playing the game. This doesn t mean it s all downhill after your mid 75s. So while we may get slower, we might also be getting smarter.
