Founded in 1990 by world-renowned gerontologist and Pulitzer-winner Robert N. Butler, M.D., the International Longevity Center is a nonprofit organization formed to educate individuals on how to live longer and better, and advise society on how to maximize the benefits of today's age boom. Check out their Web site for features including free publications on a variety of topics, interviews with Dr. Butler, and more.

As media organizations exhaustively cover the collapse and transformation of former Wall Street giants, many people are deeply concerned about what effect the turmoil will have on their own finances. LearningLife staff have identified three respected Web resources, each of which has a wealth of relevant and useful information that can help you sort out what the financial crisis means for you.

Kiplinger.com includes interactive calculators, business news, tutorials, and more that will help you stay on top of what’s happening in your retirement accounts.

The Personal Finance section of The Wall Street Journal is part of its public site, and offers access to the Journal’s excellent financial journalism, for free.

The Economy Watch section of AARP.org offers a one-stop shop of continuously updated links to news articles about the crisis, as well as links to AARP’s own personal finance resources.
