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.

As the new school year begins, teens and parents gear up for new classes, new experiences and new responsibilities. What they might not be prepared for, however, is identifying and coping with stress. "Kids can be hurting and parents don't always recognize it," says David Palmiter, professor of psychology at Marywood University in Scranton. "Teens don't want to stress out already stressed parents. Or they worry if they tell parents that they are stressed the parents might say, OK, no cell phone or going out on Friday night - they could lose their autonomy.

TERRACE PARK, Ohio - Sen. Rob Portman probably will win a second term, despite the fact that he deserves to. The swarm of young people who gathered on a Saturday morning in this Cincinnati suburb to feast on doughnuts and his gratitude are among the 5,000 volunteer interns, including students from 35 campuses, who have made 3.5 million voter contacts. Portman's supporters are a forgiving sort, undeterred by his many accomplishments and qualifications that could be disqualifying in this season of populist antagonism toward people who have actually governed.

ISSUE | PHILA. SCHOOLS Ease teachers' stress I have no doubt that "trauma" and "toxic stress" have a significant impact on students ("Curtailing K suspensions a good first step," Aug. 26), but when will we recognize the stress and pressure that employees are experiencing in the School District of Philadelphia? Daily exposure to violence, pressure, misdirected anger, being understaffed - all while working to support students with significant needs - can be draining and overwhelming.

Q. I've noticed that when I get immersed in major news events, especially about terrorism, I feel really stressed. Can this affect my health? A. Surviving a traumatic event can wear down important brain structures that help us control our attention, regulate emotions, and organize memory. However, research suggests that we do not have to directly encounter trauma to experience negative effects on our mental and physical health. For example, some common symptoms related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Zach Eflin pitched the last few weeks with a fracture in his right foot, which was not discovered until Friday and will likely be enough to shut down the rookie pitcher for the rest of the season. The stress fracture was discovered when Eflin had an MRI on his knees. He was placed on the disabled list last week with tendinitis in both knees. Eflin said he had received treatment for the foot, not knowing it was fractured. He does not know how the injury occurred. Manager Pete Mackanin said, "It's unlikely that he will be back this year.

Q: Six months ago, I made a reservation through Booking.com at the RitzĀ­Carlton in Tenerife, Spain, for two adults and two children. Booking.com did not give any restrictions, specifically relating to having an extra crib in the room. According to Booking.com, a crib would be supplied at no additional cost. This was confirmed several times by Booking.com representatives. But I received an email from the RitzĀ­Carlton saying it "won't be able to honor this reservation" on my dates.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My husband and I are fortunate and have great maternity/paternity leave, which we're splitting. Right now, it's his shift, and he's at home with our 7-month-old and preschooler. My husband is stressed. He has admitted that taking care of small kids is not his thing. He didn't deal well with stress before kids, and now he's really, really stressed. He's constantly grumpy, complaining, and regularly yells at our preschooler. He won't get counseling for dealing with the stress (he says that would stress him out more)

More than a dozen men bustled around the elevated railcar, attaching wires and sensors to it like doctors placing monitors on a heart patient. And like a heart patient undergoing a stress test, SEPTA is going to push the railcar to the max. "This is exceptional," said SEPTA senior project engineer Greg Buzby of the tests he and other engineers are performing on a Silverliner V, one of 120 cars pulled from service due to a faulty part. Over Independence Day weekend, SEPTA found a fatigue crack in one of the Silverliner V's equalizer beams, a piece that transfers the car's weight to its axles.
