You Should Know:
Purse strings among the ties that bind
AN ABC radio program this week had a call-in on the issue of older children staying at home with their parents. The announcer said we were about to hear from a woman with a dilemma. Amid all the news of trouble in the Middle East and potential terrorist threats in the air broadcast earlier that morning, this woman was seriously agonising about something else closer to home.  Her 19-year-old son was at university and had a part-time job. He lived at home and paid some board. But when she took him to the doctor the other day, he had paid for the prescriptions for his illness. Her problem: should she have paid for it or should she have let her son pay for the medicine? (The Australian)

NGF newsletter looks at future impact of baby boomers on golf
Most of the third quarter issue of NGF's Golf Industry Report newsletter is devoted to an analysis of the potential impact of the baby boom generation on the golf industry over the next 20 years. The issue will arrive in members' mailboxes in a few days. Meanwhile, we're presenting a sneak peek at some of the key points from the study. Baby boomers are the 78 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964. They are ages 42 to 60 in 2006. One in four Americans is a baby boomer; a boomer turns 60 every seven seconds. Boomers were responsible for many dramatic cultural changes that occurred after World War II, from the peace movement to the yuppie phenomenon. (World Golf)

Skilled Workers Island-Hop in Caribbean
Caribbean Experiments With More Mobile Workers, Sparking Competition Fears
With construction stagnant in her native Jamaica, architect Mandilee Newton left one island for another -- taking a design job in oil- and gas-rich Trinidad. By finding a position across the Caribbean, the bespectacled Newton, 27, said she managed to boost her career without migrating to Europe or North America like so many skilled workers from the region. (Yahoo)

Baby Boomer
A baby boomer is someone who was born during the period of increased birth rates when economic prosperity rose in many countries following World War II. In the United States, the term is iconic and more properly capitalized as Baby Boomers and commonly applied to people with birth years from the span 1946 to 1964, which may comprise more than one generation. The Baby Boom is the iconic term widely used to refer to the American population and culture in particular, as post WW II demographics abroad did not mirror the sustained growth in American families over the same interval. Baby boomers also had the highest median household incomes in the United States.

We are turning 45, a good age to be
We are 45. Yes, the newspaper you now hold in your hands (or which you read in your PCs) has been continuously around for a full four and a half decades. If this seems like a long time, it may be because it really is. For the past 45 years, we have been witness to the growth of the Filipino American community here in the U.S., as well as objective reporter to the historic events in our homeland, the Republic of the Philippines.

Baby boom proves economic power

The first of the Baby Boomers are turning 60 this year - and the BBC is running a series of articles and interviews to mark the milestone. Here the BBC News website's economics reporter Steve Schifferes considers the generation as an economic force. (BBC)

Baby boom... and bust
Baby boomers like to trumpet their generation's achievements. But their fondness for conspicuous consumption and foreign travel has led to many a modern-day ill, from rising debt to environmental woes. (BBC)

Caskets for the Obese, Eternal Reefs Await Baby-Boom Generation
In ``Remember Me: A Lively Tour of the New American Way of Death,'' Time magazine writer Lisa Takeuchi Cullen takes an anthropological field trip through the varied ways that baby boomers are rejecting the solemn funeral traditions of earlier generations. We learn of a tango devotee whose last rites have her pals dancing to a sexy bandoneon and downing Argentine-style empanadas and sangria. We attend a New Orleans jazz funeral conducted by New Jersey Jews, whose rabbi conveniently plays brass. We listen to ukeleles at the Maui memorial of a man who loved the Hawaiian Islands.

Survey: No negative impact on natives' job
A survey says rapid increases in U.S. foreign-born population weren't associated with negative effects on the employment of native-born workers. The survey by the Pew Hispanic Center examined data in the boom years of the 1990s and the downturn and recovery since 2000, the center announced. (Big News

Baby Boomer Nation
There are 78 million baby boomers in the United States today. This generation, born between 1946 and 1964, comprises about 30 percent of the population. In addition to their sheer size and accumulated wealth, baby boomers have been given an incredible gift with a longer life expectancy than previous generations … perhaps one to two decades more. The important question becomes: "What are you going to do with all of this extra time?" (SDS Universe)

Finding Meaning in a Meaningless World
Ecclesiastes's message that things of this world are all ultimately meaningless resurfaced with a bang when the Baby Boomer activists of the 1960s and 70s rebelled against what they perceived to be the emptiness and hypocrisy of their parents' goal-oriented lives in the 1950s. (News By Us)

A new generation of students
Speaker tells teachers they must relate differently as year begins

Deep Release:
Boomer Labor Shortage Threatens Critical Sectors;
Age Lessons Proposes ''Skills Brokerage'' Concept To Guarantee Labor Supply, Save Industries

Baby Boomer retirements and a too-small baby bust generation (12 million fewer workers per retired Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan) will conspire to create a brain drain of unprecedented proportions starting in less than four years according to Laurel Kennedy, president of Age Lessons, the Baby Boomer solutions firm. "Vulnerable sectors such as air traffic control, health care and the government should tap into the older worker pool, keeping these valuable personnel employed beyond age 65. One retention mechanism would be to re-purpose professional groups and trade associations as "Skills Brokerages" that match qualified workers to employer needs and maintain performance standards."

Age Lessons Consultant Tom Conley, a long-time association executive and former President of the National Housewares Manufacturers Association and Toy Industry Association, concurs. "Older workers may prove to be the lifeline that reinvigorates associations, giving them a renewed purpose and the ability to access an entire generation of workers for a longer period of time, capturing revenue from membership dues and fees associated with continuing education, certification and placement activities."

More than 80% of Boomers intend to work during retirement, but no mechanism currently exists for plugging them into the employment picture once retired. At the same time, associations are struggling in the post 9/11 environment, losing revenue streams as exhibit and destination-based programs get re-directed to the Web for convenience, safety and cost-cutting reasons. Conley added," Morphing into Skills Brokerages would transform associations into more relevant entities capable of responding to the employer and Boomer need for more flexible and creative employment options."

For more information about the Skills Brokerage concept and other Age Lessons working retirement solutions, contact Laurel Kennedy at 773.252.0123 or visit the company web site
