HUMAN DEVELOPMENT PSYCHOLOGY

A LIFE IN LATE ADULTHOOD Mr Yong is an old man from Kuching. His full name is Yong Kim Yap and he is 68 years old. He got married on 1976 and actually he got 3 children but sadly his daughter got ill and passed away in June 2015 and now left only two boys. Both of his son now have a good life with their own family. His eldest son is in Australia to further his study Master for Electrical Engineering. He had a very sad background when he was still young. His moto is be thankful and he said that  ‘you truly live if you went through all the hardship life’ is the best word that he had ever heard. This words is enough to tell us how hard was his life before.    Everyone had unforgotten story in life. So do Mr. Yong. He is a government retiree. His study is not went well as he was expelled from school for joining anti-government activity in 1963. He had been thrown into jail at the age of 15 for joining his teacher participating the communist thinking but thats not enough to stop him joining this activity. He got thrown into jail for the second time in 1965 and this time he had been jailed for 7 years. He then been give a chance to work under government to repent his mistake. He start a new life and having a family. He’s happy because now all his children had their own career and good life. He also help other people and always do charity and other activity such as involving in taking care of special need children.  During the interview we asked Mr. Yong a few questions. First is, what is his advice for young generation. He said that “do not be afraid to work towardds your dreams. Appreciate your life. I wish all of you to have a bright future and be able to repay your parents hardwork in raising and giving guidance to you. Be thankful to your parents is important”. We also ask him about what is his opinion about health. He tell that health is very important. Everything else is a bonus in life. Exercise benefit us too and eat food foods. Life is short. Our last question is about achievement and regrets in his life. He then calmly say “try your best whether for your family,society and etc. Do something beneficial and you would not have any regrets. Set a goal.” Late adulthood is the stage of life from the 60s onward; it constitutes the last stage of physical change. In general, women tend to live longer than men by an average of five years. During late adulthood the skin continues to lose elasticity, reaction time slows further, and muscle strength diminishes(courses.lumenlearning.com) As for Mr. Yong I can see that his skin is lose it elasticity he still look very stronger. His hearing is still good and he had short-sighted problem.  The other senses, such as taste, touch,  and smell,  are also less sensitive thanthey were in  earlier years. Seniors  also experience  a  decrease in physical mobility and a loss of balance, which can  result in falls and  injuries  course. .(lumenlearning.com) In term of cognitive, the aging process generally results in changes and lower functioning in the brain, leading to problems like decreased intellectual function and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Many of the changes in the bodies and minds of older adults are due in part to a reduction in the size of the brain as well as loss of brain plasticity. Memory degenerates in old age, so older adults have a harder time remembering and attending to information. In general, an older person’s procedural memory tends to remain stable, while working memory declines. ( Carducci, 2009) during the interview, I was quite surprise that Mr. Yong still remember all the memory about her past. What make me more impressed was he still remember the year of the accident. So, I can say that his episodic memory is good. He had a really good long term memory.  Erikson (1980) believed that late adulthood is a time for making sense out of one’s life, finding meaning to one’s existence, and adjusting to inevitable death. He called this stage integrity vs. despair. Imagine being able to look back on life with the sense that if you had a chance to do it over again; you would probably make many of the same choices. (Malone, 201). Of course, life does not typically involve perfect choices. But a sense of contentment and acceptance, understanding and tolerance of others are important features of integrity. Bitterness and resentments in relationships and life events can bring a sense of despair at the end of life. Mr. Yong only regret that he did not do well in his study because he joined illegal activity against government when he still young. H e said that if only he can turn back time, he will never do that in his life. People in late adulthood continue to be productive in many ways. These include work, education, volunteering, family life, and intimate relationships. Mr. Yong are involving in volunteerism untill now and he wish that he can do more to the society. In conclusion, through the interview with Mr. Yong, I can say that late adulthood is another different phase of life where our maturity is on different level. In this stage, we are very sensitive with our environment. We tend to do many work that involved the society. Event though its not give any benefits for us, but we just do it. We are happy doing it. This stage is also, a stage where everyone will think about death phase. So, personally, if I’m in my late adulthood period, I will do the same as Mr. Yong done where he volunteer himself to help people who are in need.

Heidi Fang Las Vegas Review-Journal @HeidiFang Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele (70) on the field after an altercation with Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Akeem Spence (93), not pictured, during the first half of their NFL game in Miami Gardens, Fla., Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018. Heidi Fang Las Vegas Review-Journal @HeidiFang ALAMEDA, Calif. — Jon Gruden has shown Raiders players an array of film footage in meetings this season. He has highlighted various details from practices and games. He has scouted opponents. He even has dug into the archives, reliving the reels of NFL legends from decades ago. The coach showed something new Wednesday morning, running back Jalen Richard said. He presented a play not for its design or execution. He pointed out its toughness. “That was the first time he ever showed a video like, ‘Hey, look at this grit,’” Richard said. It’s no surprise that player was a Raiders offensive lineman. Between knee injuries, ankle woes, pectoral problems, rib damage, elbow wreck and so forth, the list of ailments in 2018 would turn head athletic trainer H. Rod Martin’s hair white if it wasn’t white already. When possible, the linemen have played through pain. The toll, however, could impact Sunday’s lineup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Left guard Kelechi Osemele (toe), right guard Gabe Jackson (elbow, ankle) and reserve center-guard Jon Feliciano (calf) were three of the Raiders’ four interior offensive linemen to start the season. Feliciano, whose toughness during Sunday’s 24-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers was the subject of Gruden’s film focus, was placed on injured reserve this week. Osemele and Jackson didn’t practice Wednesday or Thursday. The guards’ statuses for Cincinnati are unclear. “I know that both of them are as tough as they come,” Gruden said, “and if there’s a will, there’s a way. They have the will. I know that. We’ll just hope for the best. Like we’ve done at other positions on offense, we’ll have to rally around the next guy up.” Chaz Green, a 2015 Dallas Cowboys third-round pick, is practicing this week at first-team left guard. He was signed two weeks ago and hasn’t appeared on offense in an NFL regular-season game this season. Denzelle Good is practicing at first-team right guard. The Raiders claimed him off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts last week. All 119 of his offensive snaps this season came at right tackle. Cameron Hunt, the Raiders’ new backup center, was re-signed this week. The team waived him Sept. 1 as part of its roster cutdown. He remained a free agent until the club called. Injuries are nothing new to the unit. Among those affected, Hudson (ankle) and Jackson (pec) have been limited since the Sept. 10 opener. Yet, they are the team’s only players who have appeared on all 855 offensive snaps in 2018. Jackson continued his streak Sunday despite a left elbow injury in the second quarter and sprained ankle on the game-winning drive. “I would use the term ‘grit,’ ” offensive line coach Tom Cable said. “It goes to (left tackle Kolton Miller) with a knee injury early, an elbow injury early. Then you got K.O., who has a knee injury and then he’s got a foot injury. Rodney, the same thing. They all have some specific ailments, but they’ve all kept battling. The meaning of grit is perseverance and really not backing down. They’ve been able to get themselves treated and rehabilitated during the week and get back out there when it’s possible. I think that speaks volumes to them.” Feliciano caught Gruden’s eye. He started Sunday at left guard for Osemele and suffered a calf injury on second-and-goal late in the fourth quarter. He barely could stand, unable to place sufficient pressure on his left leg. Yet, he blocked on quarterback Derek Carr’s 5-yard touchdown to tight end Derek Carrier on fourth-and-goal. “I’ve never seen a display of toughness like that in person,” Good said. “You always see it in the ESPN highlight reels. You see the baseball player (Curt Schilling) with the bloody ankle and stuff like that. It’s just crazy to see something like that. I literally saw Jon block a play with one leg, hopping around. Gabe was the same: one arm and still doing his job. It just shows how the guys love the game and how much they wanted that win.” Said Jackson: “We’ve got a room full of fighters.” Contact reporter Michael Gehlken at mgehlken@reviewjournal.com.
