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. Don't serve red wine at your party if you have a light-colored carpet. Cleaning a spill can be extremely difficult or impossible. 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.

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.

They're called "innovative," "narcissistic," the ones who are going to change everything. At least that's the expectation of the 80 million people known as the millennial generation or Generation Y. No pressure, right? As the Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit concluded Oct. 22 and some of the nation's youngest movers and shakers said their goodbyes to Philadelphia, it was the eve of Beverly Thomas' birthday, and she was miserable. Naturally, she took a selfie. She posted the picture to Instagram, captioned "Tomorrow is my birthday and I'll be 23. I'm starting to hate my birthday.

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.

WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Pa.) defended his accomplishments in Congress Monday and said he had not done anything illegal, though he declined to address the actions attributed to him in a top political aide's guilty-plea deal over misusing federal funds. Instead, Fattah said he would focus on the positive work he was doing - including helping millions of students prepare for college and providing billions of dollars in foreclosure relief - and argued that news media should do more of the same.

Jessica Moscatel came out as transgender in 11th-grade English class this spring. The teen asked classmates and teachers to call him Riley Matthew Moscatel from then on. They did. The request met little resistance at Bucks County Technical High School, which has other transgender or openly gay students. "Everyone supported him," said a friend, Kate Cimino, who will be a junior this year. "Everyone loved Riley. He was everyone's best friend. " But on Monday, the 17-year-old appeared to commit suicide, the county Coroner's Office said.

A Camden-based joint venture between Rowan University and Rutgers-Camden will hire a project manager and spend most of its $10 million budget this year on developing a "health sciences" building in the city.

Part of an additional $250,000 will be used to hire a project manager, and $125,000 was set aside for planning and architect services.

What keeps fund-raisers up at night? Having to raise funds. They worry about having the time to pursue the big donors while small tasks clog schedules. They worry about their jobs - their performance, or lack of it, is painfully obvious. And they worry about having to come up with new and novel ways to raise money. All this according to a recent "Demon Exchange Survey" by the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Greater Philadelphia Chapter. "It's a much higher-profile profession than it used to be," said Stan H. Retif, a fund-raiser and president of the 550-member Philadelphia chapter.

THERE was an eerie familiarity to the headlines when a soldier on Fort Hood Army base reportedly went on a rampage last week, killing or wounding 19 people before turning the gun on himself. In the immediate aftermath of such tragedies, we often find ourselves with more questions than answers. But with the facts now available, a narrative all too common among our nation's servicemen and women is quickly beginning to take shape. During a news conference after the shooting, Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, the commanding officer at the military installation, told reporters that the alleged gunman, identified as Spec.
