Alzheimer's Precursors Evident in Brain at Early Age
By PAM BELLUCK


A study of a large family with Alzheimer's found that its precursors begin even earlier than previously thought, and that the brain may deteriorate in more ways than has been documented before.







Joseph W. Sarno, the cult director of “Sin in the Suburbs,“Moonlighting Wives” and other films that helped establish the sexploitation genre and break down the taboos against erotic content in American cinema, died on April 26 in Manhattan. He was 89.
Sexploitation or "sex-exploitation" describe a class of independently produced, low budget[1] feature films generally associated with the 1960s[2] and serving largely as a vehicle for the exhibition of non-explicit sexual situations and gratuitous nudity. The genre is a subgenre of exploitation films. Sexploitation films were generally exhibited in urban grindhouse theatres, the precursor to the adult movie theaters of the 1970s and '80s that featured hardcore content. The term soft-core is often used to designate non-explicit sexploitation films after the general legalization of hardcore content. Nudist films are often considered to be subgenres of the sex-exploitation genre as well. "Nudie" films and "Nudie-cuties" are associated genres.[2]
