Four ways for college students to control their health-care costs

Four ways for college students to control their health-care costs

Finance
PeopleImages | DigitalVision | Getty ImagesStudents and their families are grappling with the cost of higher education, but here's one expense that might be a surprise: health care.The default option for many college students — especially if they're under age 26 — might be to remain on Mom and Dad's insurance, yet that may come with additional costs.For starters, will a parent's plan adequately cover a college student if he or she attends school out of state and has only out-of-network providers available? "If it's all out of network, it might be worth looking at other alternatives," said Scott Frank, a certified financial planner and founder of Stone Steps Financial in Encinitas, California.Before making changes to your medical coverage, assess your available options based on the monthly

China: Prohibiting CGN from U.S. businesses is abuse of ‘export control’

World
Aug. 16 (UPI) -- China's Foreign Ministry condemned the United States' decision to bar China Nuclear Power Corp and three of its subsidies from doing business with U.S. companies as an abuse of export control.

Different genes control lifespan, healthspan, according to new worm study

Different genes control lifespan, healthspan, according to new worm study

Science
July 17 (UPI) -- Most people don't just want to live a long time, they want to age well. They want to stay healthier for longer. The quality of a person's life as they age is called healthspan, and new research suggests different genes control lifespan and healthspan. While tracking the healthspan of an aging population, including factors like mobility and immune resistance, is difficult, researchers suggest interventions designed to improve healthspan could prove more effective. For the study, scientists analyzed a protein called TCER-1 in the worm species Caenorhabditis elegans. Previous studies have linked TCER-1 expression with enhanced longevity in the transparent nematodes. Earlier tests also showed the protein is essential to the worm's fertility. For the newest experiments, scien...
