Congratulations to Mrs. Ceccarelli.

@ale76 I merged your topic with this one. I believe it's best to have news about GRG-validated supercentenarians in one topic, just like we have separate topics for ESO and LAS validations.

Robert Weighton (UK) (29/3/1908-28/5/2020), 112 yr, 60 days, validated by GRG on 3 April 2020.

He was, while living, the recognized WOLM.

First GRG validation after 2 months.

Congratulations to Tomiko Itooka and many thanks to those who helped validate her age!

I'm suppressing the urge to say something about the GRG's validation rate, but this is not the topic for that.

Is GRG really relevant to our forum or to any scientist?

It reminds me more of the work of dilettantes who are working once in a year or two..

@stoa-oid Probably like most of us here, I share an eagerness to see a quicker validation rate from the GRG, but please remember that it's easy to judge from behind a screen, when we don't have all the info. 

For now, we will have to make do with what we get... and every validation is a new gift. 🙃 

 

Congratulations to Tomiko Itooka, and thank you to the team behind her validation.

Inah Canabarro Lucas (born and living in Brazil) validated today (8 June 2022), on her 114th birthday. Thanks for the GRG!

@record_116 very sad to see validated, at this point, only SCs 114+....and SCs of 110, 111, 112 or 113 y.o.? 😥

@ale76 Agreed, this skews the 1YSRs (1 year survival ratios) considerably... It's now impossible to get an accurate reading of, for example, ℙ(112 | 111), the probability that a 111-year-old reaches age 112.

You could use ESO, LAS or Coles era GRG data for this. Obviously the first two sources only incorporate two continents and the Coles era ended a decade ago, but 111 to 112 survival rates are reasonably consistent across the world and have not changed dramatically in the last decade.

@josia9353 it's quite easy to calculate that the average survival rate is quite consistent at about 50%.

I can’t help but notice that the validation rate is practically (if not completely) 114+ now for the GRG. 

Congrats to Kimiko Ono for her GRG validation

@dejan Congrats to her for her validation. The GRG says yes to there being a photo, is/are these available online?

Nice to see a new validated case, although it's bittersweet the validation happened so shortly after her death.

 

@amck As two of the validators are Yumi and a relative, I'm going to guess Yumi's received photos through the relative. Let's hope she'll write and publish a biography in the coming days.

Overduidelijk misschien.

Rest In Peace Fumi Hoshino.

Congratulations on your validation and it’s sad that you never became aware of it.

I wish I could turn my organs and body parts into money for donation to the GRG.

@record_116 that's not worth it. Why do that?

Tens of thousands of dollars are needed to renew GRG's database, systems and improve its validation update speed. So I dreamed that what if there is a good idea of many longevity fans will be happy. However, in today's world, I know that I cannot sell organs that easily... Sorry for my possibly low quality post.

@record_116 why would the database require that amount of money?

I have my own database of 3 000 cases and it doesn't cost anything.

Hi Record 116.

I believe its been shown by the groups here that tens of thousands of dollars do not have to be necessary - to regularly and efficiently validate supercentenarians.

The qualities of passion, commitment, rigorous work, solid and objective intelligence, and the sensible application of probability to heavily researched data, can be done without massive budgets.

I don't wish to be critical of anyone as its unprofessional, but sometimes its easy to blame lack of money for other issues that may exist.

The validation process serves a science - or similar outcome, however you wish to describe it.

So if it no longer serves its master,  then the process itself and aspects of it, must be sensibly modified, without reducing its integrity.

That is what the groups here have achieved.
