A way to reverse ageing has been discovered which allows withered muscle to rebuild itself by turning back a “biological clock”.

With Ryan Giggs ageing better than a bottle of fine wine, it could be argued that the advantages of age and experience outstrip youth and enthusiasm.

More than a decade of growth, then in 2008, sudden decline. Sound familiar? Yes, the latest figures on migration seem to be mirroring the economy. The statistics show that the net migration rate in 2008 was down to 118,000 – a 44 per cent drop on the previous year. Dramatic though it is, this decline is not surprising. Migration responds to economic conditions – people come when jobs are plentiful, go when jobs are scarce.

Not a James Ellroy pulp murder mystery, as the title suggests, but the sedate story of a love triangle set among the Parisian haute bourgeoisie.

It's often said that the love affair with conceptualism over the past 20 years has damaged the status of figurative painting. It would be more precise to say that portraiture has been a casualty. While it is widely practised and exhibited, its leading lights have not become household names in the way that the ageing young turks of Britart did.

Love must be one of the most popular literary topics, and one of the hardest to write about well. Judging by the number of US writers included in this collection (non-Americans don't even make up a third of the total), it's also a subject that seems to preoccupy those on the other side of the Atlantic far more than their European counterparts – something I can't quite believe. That small gripe aside, Jeffrey Eugenides is to be applauded for including in this collection of "Great Love Stories, from Chekhov to Munro" some of the very finest writing.

Older People's human rights should be central to policy and practice. Too many older people experience discrimination and social exclusion, and feel they are not listened to or valued; far too many experience long poverty, low incomes and related health problems.

Fox's account of her conversion to judo in her forties (although she did practise briefly as a teenager) isn't so much to do with her soul or any divine calling as it is with her concern over ageing and weight loss. But thin as this premise is for a 230-page book, it still manages to be thought-provoking, in a light-hearted way.

Leading older people's charities Help the Aged and Age Concern England will be merging in April next year.

The reason children tear open their Christmas presents in a frenzy of dawn excitement while grandparents leave theirs until after lunch comes down to how the ageing brain handles rewards. Scientists have discovered that a chemical in the brain governing the delivery and feeling of reward is altered physically as a person grows old, which explains why opening presents becomes less exciting.
