Improving Child Development by Monitoring Noisy Day Cares #ASA183
Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

At the 183rd ASA Meeting, Kenton Hummel will describe how soundscape research in day cares can improve child and provider outcomes and experiences. He and his team collaborated with experts in engineering, sensing, early child care, and health to monitor three day care centers for 48-hour periods. High noise levels and long periods of loud fluctuating sound can negatively impact children and staff by increasing the effort it takes to communicate. In contrast, a low background noise level allows for meaningful speech, which is essential for language, brain, cognitive, and social/emotional development.

Do Former Football Players Age Faster?
Harvard Medical School

New research suggests that former professional football players may face accelerated aging, despite past research showing they have life spans similar or longer than the general population In the new study, retired football players reported shorter health spans — defined as years free of disease – than men in the general population Two age-related diseases — arthritis and dementia — were found more commonly among former football players, compared with men of the same age in the general population Additionally, hypertension and diabetes were more common among younger former players, those ages 25 to 29, compared with same-age men from the general population. The results warrant further study to define the biochemical, cellular, and physiologic mechanisms behind premature aging in former football players
