    The average life expectancy has steadily increased over the last four decades. What habits are necessary to increase our chances of healthy longevity? The course will discuss the biological, social, and emotional factors that influence “successful aging” by reading and discussing Alan Castel’s book “Better with Age” with a group of Wofford College students taking the class during their Interim term. A balance of the research evidence and lived experiences will be the basis for discussions.

    Members should purchase Alan Castel's "Better with Age" 978-0190279981 Oxford University Press (2018) once you register for this class.

    Since this course has filled up in previous semesters, I am offering it again. It is designed to teach the best choices at blackjack to be able to either win or be a "tough out" at the tables. All are welcome with no prior experience necessary. We will cover all aspects of blackjack including proper decisions while playing, casino personnel, tipping, comps, and money management. Card counting is not taught but is explained. Practice play with real chips is a fun part of the course!
