* Discard your stereotypes of older folks. They're not poor, feeble and unsophisticated. And they're not unyielding to change.* Pay attention to focus groups and other qualitative research that samples attitudes, interests and lifestyles. It may be more revealing than research based simply on age, income and other statistics.* In advertising, downplay aging. Don't portray older folks as inactive. Emphasize vitality. Design ads that blend several age groups together.* Emphasize value. Quality, not price, often is the deciding factor on a purchase.

With a brief hint of spring teasing the area Saturday afternoon, over 350 girls - divided into six age groups - made their way to McDonogh School in Owings Mills to compete for a spot on this year's M&D lacrosse club teams. Founded in 2001 by former Mount Hebron coach and current McDonogh coach Chris Robinson, M&D lacrosse is one of the elite programs in the region. Girls come from as far away as Delaware and Northern Virginia for a chance to make the roster. They go in knowing that a commitment of two or three practices a week during the summer, Sunday practices and tournaments is expected.

Basketball is on the rebound, nationally and in Anne Arundel County. More college and professional games are on television almost every night, and more kids are taking an interest in it and wanting to find their way onto a court. That's one of the main reasons boys basketball continues to grow in popularity in the Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks leagues. There are five age groups, and there's no question how much local kids like to play the game. "I think [it's about] physical fitness and the college games that are on just about every night someplace on TV," said Ron Mox, a county recreation and sports supervisor.

A recent girls high school basketball game in the metro area that featured two very good players showed just how the sport has changed in recent years. Scouts from the University of North Carolina, University of Delaware, Georgetown University, McDaniel College and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County were there to watch two of the area's top-ranked teams and - they hoped - recruit some players. The good high school players these days usually have one thing in common: They had played in strong recreation basketball leagues before entering high school.

LOS ANGELES -- Movie audiences are getting older.The Motion Picture Association of America reports that in 1989, 23 percent of filmgoers were 40 and older, compared to only 15 percent in 1985. Teen-agers, 22 percent of 1985 audiences, are down to 19 percent. People in between -- ages 20-39 -- still account for the lion's share, 58 percent, but that represented a slight decline from the 63 percent registered four years earlier.The statistics were among several reported by the Newspaper Advertising Bureau at the recent National Association of Theater Owners/ShoWest meeting in Las Vegas.

Derek Nie sat down in front of the camera at the Maryland Table Tennis Center in Gaithersburg and fielded the question from the television reporter. "Will [making the Olympics] make all this hard work worthwhile?" Derek, of North Potomac, paused and then shook his head. "No," he responds. "Because I still have to win the gold medal. " Never mind that the United States has never won an Olympic medal of any kind for table tennis. Never mind that Derek is just 11 years old, and never mind that he is about 4 feet tall and weighs just under 70 pounds.

Rij Patel is every golf coach's nightmare. His swing is as unconventional as they come. Rij describes it as "weird" and "bad," and it's enough to make nearby golfers do a double take. But their amusement turns to awe as his contorted clubface finally straightens itself out at the last possible moment before impact. Rij is also every coach's dream. As metal meets ball, one can't help but wonder how such power comes from the Rij's frame - small, even for a 14-year-old. He's mature beyond his years, is intelligent and spends much of his time practicing at Hunt Valley Golf Club, where he and his parents belong.

As a near-deafening refrain of techno music rocked the 1st Mariner Arena, Kathy Brown gathered her 16 girls in the quietest corner she could find, drew them into a tight circle and voiced a theme she hoped would propel them through their 150 seconds in the spotlight. "I don't want any attitudes," said Brown, coach of Coastal Xtreme, a Salisbury cheerleading squad in town yesterday to compete in the 18th annual Maryland State Cheer and Dance Championships. "Go out as there a team, and you'll take the title."

In a move that could lead to significant changes in medical care for older men, a national task force recommended yesterday that doctors stop screening men 75 and older for prostate cancer because the search for the disease in this group is doing more harm than good. The new guidelines, issued by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, represent an abrupt policy change by an influential panel that had withheld any advice regarding screening for prostate cancer, citing a lack of reliable evidence.

If you're a teen-ager, don't read this. Federal scientists might have discovered a biological excuse for laziness. Studies conducted on adolescents and young adults show significant differences between the two age groups in the brain region that governs "drive," the internal momentum to work for a reward. This region, barely active in adolescence, apparently comes into its own in the early 20s. Scientists at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism used brain scans to test whether the developing teen-age brain is any different from the mature brain of an adult when faced with an opportunity to make money.

The soccer tournament on this page was a "classic," which may seem odd, especially if you are getting acquainted with youth sports. But use of that word has meaning if you are into youth soccer, which like all team sports for kids comes with an array of competitive jargon. Here is something of a primer on how youth team sports are organized: AGE GROUPS: Players as young as 4 or 5 begin in "clinics," or introductory play. Age groups evolve into "rec-level" and then "travel" teams for players through high school age. Through it all, the idea is to keep things competitive with players of similar coordination, experience, physical development and ability.

His brain felt like a ripe melon "ready to blow up." Former Maryland fullback Tim Cesa switched helmets four times during the 2006 season in search of one that would protect his head from additional concussions. None of them helped. After a series of five or six concussions over almost two seasons, Cesa's career ended with a final hit on the first play against Florida State on Oct. 28, 2006. Now, as a manager at R.J. Bentley's Filling Station, Cesa's only tie to the football program is through fans who pack the popular downtown bar. It's the only connection he can handle while he finishes school.

DEAR CAL -- What do you think about players and coaches using cell phones during an 11-year-old all-star game? I was watching my brother play, and my dad noticed that the other team was text-messaging what pitches were coming to the batter on the other team. Do you think there should be a rule for it, and is it fair play? Eddie Lowery, Audubon, Pa. DEAR EDDIE -- First, I don't think relaying another team's signs to batters is a good idea no matter how it is accomplished. If, by chance, the person relaying the pitches to the batter provides bad information -- which is possible -- the batter doesn't stand a chance.
