Appears to be about 1,200 cases globally a year, with Madagascar having a quarter of them, in their inland rat infested prisons. I seriously doubt a risk of an epidemic given the level of knowledge that exists about how the disease spreads. But there is a point that much of the world still is unsanitary (think about South America and cringe) with more than just bubonic plague to worry about. And India, OMG. I spent a month in Thailand last year, and I did have some qualms about sanitary conditions people live in, but hey, that's what being poor is all about.
and this seems more likely to you than a transcendental reality. I think you're getting close to a complete blur.
You don't know quite enough to be dangerous.
Their pronouncements of Man of the Year carry about as much weight as Miley Cyrus' thoughts on Soren Kierkegaard.
What would fat Maria be saying ? I'm lost without her.
Could you be so disconnected from employment reality after all this time ? Lets hope for a dislocation in your industry that puts your career at its end without pity.
If we have a strong economy in 2014, I just hope the flying pigs don't drop too much on our heads.
You can keep inflating them forever and they never become risky.
Or maybe they're like Kobe beef. The Japanese suspend these beef cattle above the ground and feed them as much as they'll eat, and they never build any muscle strength. Then they're slaughtered for fine restaurants.
You see from a popular point of view of 'government waste' in healthcare because of Medicare fraud.
Do you also see that it is the health care system providers, private enterprises themselves, who are the source of the fraud ? Why would you think any other arrangement of private insurance or direct consumer pay would suddenly result in these same healthcare providers suddently behaving ethically ? You're dreaming.
is it really that hard to bring up 'dictionary' and spell it correctly. Its 'yarmulke'. don't you think you'd appear brighter ?
The theory that the Fed may be creating a fake tapering "crisis" to scare people into realizing taxable capital gains may not be all that farfetched. Clever little monkeys. I feel like I'm living in the "Truman Show" now, I think we all are.
In November 2012 the U.S. Census Bureau said more than 16% of the population lived in poverty in the United States, including almost 20% of American children, up from 14.3% (approximately 43.6 million) in 2009 and to its highest level since 1993. In 2008, 13.2% (39.8 million) Americans lived in poverty. California has a poverty rate of 23.5%, the highest of any state in the country.
Between 1981 and 2008, the proportion of China's population living on less than $1.25/day is estimated to have fallen from 85% to 13.1%, meaning that roughly 600 million people were taken out of poverty. The number of people living on less than $2/day is approximately 468 million, or 36% of the population, according to 2009 estimates. At the same time, this rapid change has brought with it different kinds of stresses. China faces serious natural resource scarcity and environmental degradation
....Not exactly apples to apples comparison, such are hard. But life in America is not a piece of cake even compared to China.
