At the beginning of Barack Obama's second term, magazines and newspapers are looking back at how he's aged over the first four years. One time-lapse video, according to Gawker, shows the president "Age 10 Years in 5 Years in 2 Minutes. " The Washington Post had photos of Obama "Then & Now," with former White House physician Connie Mariano describing presidents as looking like they "fast-forwarded eight years in the span of four years," presumably because of the stress of the job. Can chronic stress really cause early wrinkles and gray hair?

Most of the 250 people displaced by the MOVE fire, as well as many of those living near the 6200 blocks of Osage Avenue and Pine Street, have been adapting to the enormous stress they have been living with since before the May 13 confrontation, mental health officials said yesterday. But the stress is so great that the threat of serious psychological problems is always there, particularly for some of the groups said to be "at risk" - children, the elderly, people already in therapy and others who suffer a major personal or job loss.

Q: My father complains of a stomach pain he thinks might be an ulcer. Since he leads a stress-free life and we have always been told ulcers are related to stress, we question this diagnosis. Can an ulcer be treated by our family doctor, or should he see a specialist? A: Although the classic teaching has been that stress causes ulcers, this dogma is not necessarily true. People with stress often have cast-iron stomachs, and patients without stress frequently develop peptic ulcers.

The holidays are stressful enough just coping with seasonal chores. A few tips can help turn that holiday frown into a smile. Don't wait until the last minute to put that toy or bicycle together for your child. Chances are you'll be too busy and too tired to do a good job.

Keep a few wrapped "generic" gifts on hand for surprise guests who bring a gift.

Stress is a natural part of life that gives many of us a certain edge. But when it morphs into "distress" that's when you'll find yourself walloped by sciatica, sleepless nights and indigestion. Besides, it's hard to stay centered when you can't stop weeping in the Wheaties every morning. There are ways to monitor your stress level, and keep it lowered. Maintain a sense of humor. Life only comes around once and you might as well have a few yucks and giggles as you power-drive one kid to basketball and another to Girl Scouts, as everyone eats dinner in the car. Walk out the door.

Think of a rubber band. It can stretch and stretch - but then you s-t-r-e-t-c-h it too far and it breaks. The body's bones work the same way. When they are called on to endure too much stress, they crack. "Stress fractures," the medical term for such injuries, are faced by runners and other athletes. "We've seen a rash of stress fractures in the tibia (shin bone) and the pelvis in the past few weeks," said Dr. Phillip Marone, M.D., director of the Thomas Jefferson University Sports Medicine Center, 9th and Sansom streets, which opened four months ago. In recent days, Marone has treated shin stress fractures in a 15-year-old soccer player and in two recreational runners, ages 21 and 26. A 40-year-old attorney, also a runner, came in with a stress fracture of his pelvis.

Discovering stress on the job is about as much of a revelation as finding toes on feet, but recently there was an hour-long television special on the subject and one of the major weekly news magazines published a cover story that estimated the economic impact of job-related stress at $150 billion a year. The seemingly sudden increase in interest in the subject is not a matter of accident or coincidence. It's a matter of simple demographics: The baby boomers are moving into their middle age, and when a population cohort of that size does anything, it attracts attention.

Most 76ers fans have their own opinions about the trade of reigning rookie of the year Michael Carter-Williams to the Milwaukee Bucks for the Los Angeles Lakers' protected top-five draft pick. On Friday, Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie was asked if he believes more in acquiring assets than developing players. Hinkie paused for a moment befor giving this response. "I believe a lot in optionality – a lot," he said. "I believe a lot in flexible. I believe a lot in making a decision as late as you possibly can to gain as much information as you can. " The second-year general manager said the decisions to trade Carter-Williams and K.J. McDaniels weren't made until 1 p.m. Thursday.

Q: My girlfriend and I have been talking about getting married for a while. Her patience is wearing thin waiting for me to ask. I plan on asking very soon but keep getting hung up on one thing. Over the last six months or so, when we argue, she'll occasionally say things that are very insulting and disrespectful. Things I would never say to her. She later says that she only says things like that because she's mad, and that I need to be less sensitive. I understand that her patience has worn thin waiting for me to ask her, but am I crazy to think that there is a line that two people shouldn't cross in an argument?

  TWO DECADES later, Andy Callaghan, a 25-year veteran police sergeant, still can't forget the sound of the bullet whizzing by his ear. It was winter 1995. As he had done dozens - maybe even hundreds - of times, he geared up to serve a warrant, this time in Southwest Philadelphia. He knew that facing gunfire and having to shoot back to stay alive was always a possibility. But he didn't anticipate it that night. "It was a Thursday. I was exhausted from court and work," Callaghan, 48, recalled recently in his office at the Livengrin Foundation for Addiction Recovery campus in Bensalem, where he serves as director of the First Responders Addiction Treatment Program.

About a year ago, Philadelphia Police Chaplain Luis Centeno was approached by Stephen McWilliams, who teaches a social documentary film class at Villanova University. McWilliams was initially interested in profiling the chaplain, but as they talked, both began to see a more meaningful project - about a dark secret, one few law enforcement officers are willing to openly talk about. Suicide. The collaboration led to this to the release this fall of BLUE , a 40-minute documentary chronicling the occupational hazards of the job, and a related app to help officers identify and address the signs.

It was only 6 p.m., but the stingy winter sun was long gone when a dozen middle-aged men and women arrived at the Penn Medicine outpost in Radnor. They gathered in a wood-paneled conference room and settled into comfortable office chairs arranged in a circle. Ranging from their late 30s to early 60s, most were strangers and professionally had little in common. One was a fund-raiser for a private foundation, another a pharmacist who works with terminally ill children. There also were a couple of psychologists, a lawyer, a banking software consultant, and a few retirees.

For the record, what gets me in that mood is Bradley Cooper, but I have a feeling I'm not getting him for Christmas. Ho-ho-horny. But to stay on point, the holidays are upon us, and we're all performing the 300 tasks required thereby, primarily shopping.

Brett Brown hopes that history will be kind to the 76ers. On the surface, the Sixers have been linked to the franchise's dismal 1972-73 squad after a 99-91 loss to Brooklyn on Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center. It was the Sixers' 15th consecutive loss to open the season, tying the organization's all-time worst start set by the 1972-73 team. That team went 9-73 to set the NBA's futility mark. The current team, which is sacrificing wins for a top draft pick, might be hard-pressed to win seven games by season's end. This team is built to lose games.

BLOOMING GROVE, Pa. - After more than two weeks on the run, police say, Eric Frein must be tired. He has hastily left behind two homemade bombs, ammunition, and other supplies as he scrambles to avoid capture, they said Tuesday. Both explosives were found since Monday. That, and a fresh sighting, convinced investigators that the accused gunman is "undoubtedly" still hiding in roughly five square miles of forest in Monroe and Pike Counties, State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens said.

DeMeco Ryans was born and raised in Bessemer, Ala., a small industrial town in the center of the state. Its namesake invented a process to mass-produce steel, but it's perhaps best known now as the birthplace of Bo Jackson. When people talk about the child-abuse charges filed in Texas against Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, about a culture that could empower a father to strike the inside of his 4-year-old son's legs with a tree branch until they bled, Bessemer is the kind of place they mean, where a boy's roughest justice could come at the hands of a parent.
