... Population Reference Bureau Inform. Urban Poverty and Health in Developing Countries. By 2030, according to the projections of the United Nations Population Division, more people in the developing world will live in urban than rural areas; by 2050, two-thirds of its population is likely to be urban. The private sector is a far more important presence in cities than in rural areas, and urban health care is consequently more monetized. 3 Rural shortages of health personnel and services are receiving attention in the recent literature, but similar shortages also plague smaller cities and towns.

The April 7-10 health conference Cities and Women’s Health: Global Perspectives, the 18th Congress of the International Council on Women’s Health Issues, is underway at the University of Pennsylvania. Next American City is hosting a liveblog of the event. By **Mara D’Angelo**. The concurrent session titled “Structural Barriers to Urban Women’s Health” touched on the influence of economic factors on the plight of street children in Kenya, and Belgian research on the impact of gender relations on contraceptive use rates. But the topic area that generated the most interest from the audience was a presentation about the institutional barriers to hospital care for pregnant women in Delhi. In Delhi’s urban slums, it is common for women to pay a nominal fee to an untrained birth attendant to assist with delivery. While untrained attendants are often competent with by-the-book deliveries, breach births ...

Saturday, July 10, 2010. Why do men drink so much. Recently while on a visit to our program in the slums of Chennai, i noticed that all our programs were structured around women. Of course it was day time and men might be at work; but still I asked. Any programs with men. In a way, i know what the answer will be, over the years, I have worked with many slum communities and the work is always or almost always with women. so why do men drink, I ask. I probe further what do women do and why don't they drink. Well, women don't go to work and are not involved in manual labor, so they do not have the compulsions that men have. programs with women succeed; programs with men fail; and usually because nothing consistent can be planned with the menl because of this alcoholism problem among men in the slums. This is case with us in Oasis, it is often the case else where too. So can any thing be done for men or are all developmental programs in the slums destined to succeed with women. I dream that one day it will be ...

Clarifying Some Confusion on Inequality over the Ages. Clarifying Some Confusion on Inequality over the Ages. As you’d expect, the post-tax series is below the pre-tax one: our system of taxes and transfers is progressive and it reduces the extent of inequality in the income distribution at any point in time. But turning to trends, both series go up about the same amount over these years: 19% for the pre-tax series and 21% post-tax. Or, look at another measure of income concentration: the share of income going to the top 1% of households. The table shows these shares for all households and those with children, along with the change in the shares over these 31 years. The post-tax changes in percentage point terms are slightly less than that pre-tax ones: by this metric, inequality rose a bit less after taxes and transfers than it did before. But rise it did. First, let’s be clear: in analyzing economic inequality, Piketty is by no means mistaken to examine market incomes. If, as has been the case over most of ...

"We hold these truths to be self-evident-that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness"-- so says the Declaration of Independence. I say, however, that the first of these truths is NOT self-evident. In fact, I would go even further by saying that it is plainly self-evident that human beings are NOT all equal, and in many cases, this inequality is permanent and inherent. One of the most readily apparent ways in which people are unequal is in physical stature. If any of you were wondering, I am 5'11" tall and weigh 175 lbs. Without taking steroids or HGH or putting on a ton of fat, that's basically as big as I can get. I will never be huge and powerful enough to be an NFL linebacker no matter how much I would like to.

Net cash income and net farm income are two valid measures of profit which are widely used in USDA economic reports. In 2005, net cash income was $82.8 billion while net farm income was $72.6 billion. net farm income at $82.5 billion.

Imperium Watch: ?God Bless Income Disparity. Imperium Watch: ?God Bless Income Disparity. By Stephanie Kraft - Apr 8, 2013. I n the runup to the 2012 presidential election, pollsters were quarreling over whether Americans thought the income gap was a big problem or not; wanted the government to do something about it or not; wanted less money for the rich, or simply more for themselves. A poll done in the fall of 2011 by Pulse Opinion Research for The Hill found that 74 percent of respondents—79 percent of women, and, tellingly, 80 percent of those aged 18 to 39—considered the income gap either a “big problem” or “somewhat of a problem.”. In January, 2012, a Gallup poll found that only 2 percent of respondents considered the income gap the most important economic issue facing the country; a Heritage blog heralded the finding with the headline “Americans Remain Unconcerned by Income Equality.” That was misleading. A Gallup poll a month earler had said that 72 percent of Americans considered narrowing the wage ...

Overall, the evidence suggests that there is an association between inequality and mortality across states in the U.S. Why income inequality might affect life expectancy Repeated examinations of empirical evidence have shown that an association exists between the level of inequality in the distribution of society’s resources and the mortality risk in that society.

... Market Pulse Personal income jumps in December on dividends. By Greg Robb. Greg Robb. WASHINGTON MarketWatch -- Personal income outpaced consumer spending in December, the Commerce Department said Thursday. Personal incomes rose a seasonally adjusted 2.6% in December, the fastest pace in eight years. The gain was much higher than economist's forecasts. Real after-tax incomes rose 2.8% in December, the largest increase since May 2008. Economists say higher income is due to one-time dividend distributions and will reverse sharply in January. Consumer spending rose 0.2% in December, in line with expectations. With incomes running faster than spending, the personal savings rate rose to 6.5% of disposable income from 4.1% in November. It was the highest savings rate since May 2009. Inflation was tame. The personal consumption expenditure index, which Federal Reserve officials say is a more accurate gauge of inflation than the better-known consumer price index, was flat on the month. MarketWatch.

... Published on October 16, 2013 at 4:31 AM. Despite the prevalence of corner and convenience stores in urban neighborhoods, many residents have to travel farther to find supermarkets that offer a wide variety of healthful food choices, finds a new study in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. The study also found that supermarkets in lower income areas and with more people on public assistance had significantly less variety and offered fewer healthier foods. Residents were 75 percent black, 15 percent white, 6 percent Asian, and 1 percent Hispanic, with 28 percent of households living in poverty, according to the 2010 U.S. Researchers audited 373 neighborhood stores for the quality and variety of healthy food choices, such as low-fat dairy products, lean meats, and fresh fruits and vegetables; higher scores signified more healthy choices. Nearly 80 percent of food outlets audited were corner or convenience stores that received significantly lower scores. The researchers also surveyed more ...

*  .. Handling of Assets – 2% imputed income from assets when assets exceed $5,000 .. 2 Responses
Handling of Assets – 2% imputed income from assets when assets exceed $5,000. In some instances a 1% value was being used to calculate income from assets that exceed $5,000. I found this intriguing and asked why they were using the 1% and not the 2% Passbook Rate set by HUD. The answer I received was that the local housing authority had called and told them to use 1% value to calculate income from assets. The confusion here is that the housing authorities when calculating income for section 8 subsidy will often use a percentage acquired from a local bank, which may be lower that 2%. However, it is important to remember that the Passbook Rate is established by HUD and is part of the 4350.3 Handbook. changes the Passbook Rate all tax credit properties should be calculating income from assets, greater than $5,000, with a 2% imputed income from assets. Below is the excerpt from the HUD 4350.3 Occupancy Handbook Section 1: Determining Annual Income which explains how to calculate income from assets that exceed ...

The relationship in this case is negative, that is higher life expectancies are found in populations with less inequality of income distribution. The term relationship is sometimes used instead of association. For example among the fifth US states, looking at their mortality rates in 1990 to see what relationship there is with a measure of income distribution by state represents a cross sectional design.

NBER Working Paper No. 14104 Issued in June 2008 NBER Program s : AG HC HE LS PE. This paper tests whether income affects the body weight and clinical weight classification of elderly Americans using a natural experiment that led otherwise identical retirees to receive significantly different Social Security payments based on their year of birth. We exploit this natural experiment by estimating models of instrumental variables using data from the National Health Interview Surveys. The model estimates rule out even moderate effects of income on weight and on the probability of being underweight or obese, especially for men. 161 K.

Don't Let Low Rates Beat Up Your Income Strategy November 22, 2013 Ron DeLegge, Editor Never mind that interest rates have been on the rise. The 10-year Treasury yield TNX trades near 2.75% and will give you almost 1% more in yield than the S P 500’s current yield. But even at that depressed yield, it would take an investor 26 years to double their money. Think about it this way; if you’re 40 years old, you’ll have to wait until age 66 to double your cash. We know that investment income has been clobbered by low interest rates, but even household income is down significantly. That means the typical middle class family earned more money 16 years ago than it does today. Since 2008 – when the Fed began ramping up QE stimulus - median incomes are down around 5%. Cleary, the hot money from QE hasn’t benefited the broader economy or middle class in a meaningful way.

The study of primary school-aged children also found almost one in three children aged six to 12 years are either overweight or obese. Study author Rachel Sutherland said: ‘Of huge concern was that by age six and seven, around 30 per cent of these kids were already overweight or obese.’ The study, published in Nutrition & Dietetics by Wiley-Blackwell, collected data on 2,224 children aged six to 12 years from 16 randomly-selected primary schools in the Hunter region of New South Wales. Key study findings: · By age six, 32 per cent of children were either overweight or obese · 31.5 per cent of girls were overweight or obese, compared with 25 per cent of boys · 34 per cent of children in low SES areas were overweight or ...

But those who ought to know say while net cash income and net farm income may sound alike, they aren't. Thus, I was intrigued by a recent article by Roy Ferguson in The Ferguson AgReport on “Understanding USDA's Net Cash Income and Net Farm Income.” Ferguson, a farm management consultant, has long advocated the use of standard accounting principles for farmers that would help provide more realistic assessments of their operations. Net cash income and net farm income are two valid measures of profit which are widely used in USDA economic reports. In 2005, net cash income was $82.8 billion while net farm income was $72.6 billion. The previous year net cash income totaled $85.5 billion vs. net farm income at $82.5 billion. In other years, net farm income has been much higher than net cash income. “While past peculiarities such as treating net CCC loans as sales along with not recognizing family living ...

*  Economic Freedom of the World
1 but countries with higher economic freedom suffered more in output growth during the late-2000s financial crisis. Economic freedom has been shown to correlate strongly with higher average income per person, higher income of the poorest 10%, higher life expectancy, higher literacy, lower infant mortality, higher access to water sources and less corruption. The share of income in percent going to the poorest 10% is the same for both more and less economically free countries. http://www.freetheworld.com/2004/efw2004ch1.pdf. The people living in the top one-fifth of the most free countries enjoy an average income of $23,450 and a growth rate in the 1990s of 2.56 percent per year; in contrast, the bottom one-fifth in the rankings had an average income of just $2,556 and a -0.85 percent growth rate in the 1990s. The poorest 10 percent of the population have an average income of just $728 in the least free countries compared with over $7,000 in the most free countries.

(1/4330) Economic determinants and dietary consequences of food insecurity in the United States.

This paper reviews recent research on the economic determinants and dietary consequences of food insecurity and hunger in the United States. The new Current Population Study (CPS) food insecurity and hunger measure shows that hunger rates decline sharply with rising incomes. Despite this strong relationship, confirmed in other national datasets, a one-to-one correspondence between poverty-level incomes and hunger does not exist. In 1995, 13.1% of those in poverty experienced hunger and half of those experiencing hunger had incomes above the poverty level. Panel data indicate that those who are often food insufficient are much more likely than food-sufficient households to have experienced recent events that stress household budgets, such as losing a job, gaining a household member or losing food stamps. Cross-sectional work also demonstrates the importance of food stamps because benefit levels are inversely related to food insufficiency. Concern for the dietary consequences of domestic food insufficiency is well placed; recent research shows that the odds of consuming intakes <50% of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) are higher for adult women and elderly individuals from food-insufficient households. Preschoolers from food-insufficient households do not consume significantly lower amounts than those from food-sufficient households, but mean intakes for the rest of members in those very same households are significantly lower for the food insufficient. This research highlights the importance of food insecurity and hunger indicators, further validates the use of self-reported measures and points to areas of need for future research and interventions.  (+info)

(2/4330) Food insecurity: consequences for the household and broader social implications.

A conceptual framework showing the household and social implications of food insecurity was elicited from a qualitative and quantitative study of 98 households from a heterogeneous low income population of Quebec city and rural surroundings; the study was designed to increase understanding of the experience of food insecurity in order to contribute to its prevention. According to the respondents' description, the experience of food insecurity is characterized by two categories of manifestations, i.e., the core characteristics of the phenomenon and a related set of actions and reactions by the household. This second category of manifestations is considered here as a first level of consequences of food insecurity. These consequences at the household level often interact with the larger environment to which the household belongs. On a chronic basis, the resulting interactions have certain implications that are tentatively labeled "social implications" in this paper. Their examination suggests that important aspects of human development depend on food security. It also raises questions concerning the nature of socially acceptable practices of food acquisition and food management, and how such acceptability can be assessed. Guidelines to that effect are proposed. Findings underline the relevance and urgency of working toward the realization of the right to food.  (+info)

(3/4330) Predicting longitudinal growth curves of height and weight using ecological factors for children with and without early growth deficiency.

Growth curve models were used to examine the effect of genetic and ecological factors on changes in height and weight of 225 children from low income, urban families who were assessed up to eight times in the first 6 y of life. Children with early growth deficiency [failure to thrive (FTT)] (n = 127) and a community sample of children without growth deficiency (n = 98) were examined to evaluate how genetic, child and family characteristics influenced growth. Children of taller and heavier parents, who were recruited at younger ages and did not have a history of growth deficiency, had accelerated growth from recruitment through age 6 y. In addition, increases in height were associated with better health, less difficult temperament, nurturant mothers and female gender; increases in weight were associated with better health. Children with a history of growth deficiency demonstrated slower rates of growth than children in the community group without a history of growth deficiency. In the community group, changes in children's height and weight were related to maternal perceptions of health and temperament and maternal nurturance during feeding, whereas in the FTT group, maternal perceptions and behavior were not in synchrony with children's growth. These findings suggest that, in addition to genetic factors, growth is dependent on a nurturant and sensitive caregiving system. Interventions to promote growth should consider child and family characteristics, including maternal perceptions of children's health and temperament and maternal mealtime behavior.  (+info)

(4/4330) Influence of prenatal iron and zinc supplements on supplemental iron absorption, red blood cell iron incorporation, and iron status in pregnant Peruvian women.

BACKGROUND: It is estimated that 60% of pregnant women worldwide are anemic. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to examine the influence of iron status on iron absorption during pregnancy by measuring supplemental iron absorption, red blood cell iron incorporation, and iron status in pregnant women. DESIGN: Subjects were 45 pregnant Peruvian women (33+/-1 wk gestation), of whom 28 received daily prenatal supplements containing 60 mg Fe and 250 microg folate without (Fe group, n = 14) or with (Fe+Zn group, n = 14) 15 mg Zn, which were were consumed from week 10 to 24 of gestation until delivery. The remaining 17 women (control) received no prenatal supplementation. Iron status indicators and isotopes were measured in maternal blood collected 2 wk postdosing with oral (57Fe) and intravenous (58Fe) stable iron isotopes. RESULTS: Maternal serum ferritin and folate concentrations were significantly influenced by supplementation (P < 0.05). Serum iron was also significantly higher in the Fe than in the Fe+Zn (P < 0.03) or control (P < 0.001) groups. However, the supplemented groups had significantly lower serum zinc concentrations than the control group (8.4+/-2.3 and 10.9+/-1.8 micromol/L, respectively, P < 0.01). Although percentage iron absorption was inversely related to maternal serum ferritin concentrations (P = 0.036), this effect was limited and percentage iron absorption did not differ significantly between groups. CONCLUSIONS: Because absorption of nonheme iron was not substantially greater in pregnant women with depleted iron reserves, prenatal iron supplementation is important for meeting iron requirements during pregnancy.  (+info)

(5/4330) Geography of intestinal permeability and absorption.

BACKGROUND: Intestinal morphology and function vary geographically. AIMS: These functions were assessed in asymptomatic volunteers in European, North American, Middle Eastern, Asian, African, and Caribbean countries. METHODS: Five hour urine collections were obtained from each subject following ingestion of a 100 ml iso-osmolar test solution containing 3-0-methyl-D-glucose, D-xylose, L-rhamnose, and lactulose after an overnight fast, to assess active (3-0-methyl-D-glucose) and passive (D-xylose) carrier mediated, and non-mediated (L-rhamnose) absorption capacity, as well as intestinal permeability (lactulose:rhamnose ratio). RESULTS: A comparison of results for subjects from tropical countries (n=218) with those resident in the combined temperate and subtropical region (Europe, United States, Qatar) (n=224) showed significant differences. Residents in tropical areas had a higher mean lactulose:rhamnose ratio and lower mean five hour recoveries of 3-0-methyl-D-glucose, D-xylose, and L-rhamnose, indicating higher intestinal permeability and lower absorptive capacity. Investigation of visiting residents suggested that differences in intestinal permeability and absorptive capacity were related to the area of residence. Subjects from Texas and Qatar, although comprised of several ethnic groups and resident in a subtropical area, showed no significant difference from European subjects. CONCLUSIONS: There are clearly demarcated variations in intestinal permeability and absorptive capacity affecting asymptomatic residents of different geographical areas which correspond with the condition described as tropical enteropathy. Results suggest the importance of environmental factors. The parameters investigated may be relevant to the predisposition of the indigenous population and travellers to diarrhoeal illness and malnutrition. Intestinal function in patients from the tropics may be difficult to interpret, but should take into account the range of values found in the asymptomatic normal population.  (+info)

(6/4330) Prevalence and social correlates of cardiovascular disease risk factors in Harlem.

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the prevalence, social correlates, and clustering of cardiovascular disease risk factors in a predominantly Black, poor, urban community. METHODS: Associations of risk factor prevalences with sociodemographic variables were examined in a population-based sample of 695 men and women aged 18 to 65 years living in Central Harlem. RESULTS: One third of the men and women were hypertensive, 48% of the men and 41% of the women were smokers, 25% of the men and 49% of the women were overweight, and 23% of the men and 35% of the women reported no leisure-time physical activity over the past month. More than 80% of the men and women had at least 1 of these risk factors, and 9% of the men and 19% of the women had 3 or more risk factors. Income and education were inversely related to hypertension, smoking, and physical inactivity. Having 3 or more risk factors was associated with low income and low education (extreme odds ratio [OR] = 10.2, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 3.0, 34.5 for education; OR = 3.7, CI = 1.6, 8.9 for income) and with a history of unstable work or of homelessness. CONCLUSIONS: Disadvantaged, urban communities are at high risk for cardiovascular disease. These results highlight the importance of socioenvironmental factors in shaping cardiovascular risk.  (+info)

(7/4330) Efficacy of Haemophilus influenzae type b conjugate vaccines and persistence of disease in disadvantaged populations. The Haemophilus Influenzae Study Group.

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) conjugate vaccines among children aged 2 to 18 months and to determine risk factors for invasive Hib disease during a period of declining incidence (1991-1994). METHODS: A prospective population-based case-control study was conducted in a multistate US population of 15.5 million. A laboratory-based active surveillance system was used for case detection. RESULTS: In a multivariate analysis, having a single-parent mother (odds ratio [OR] = 4.3, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.2, 14.8) and household crowding (OR = 3.5, 95% CI = 1.03, 11.7) were risk factors for Hib disease independent of vaccination status. After adjustment for these risk factors, the protective efficacy of 2 or more Hib vaccine doses was 86% (95% CI = 16%, 98%). Among undervaccinated subjects, living with a smoker (P = .02) and several indicators of lower socioeconomic status were risk factors for Hib disease. CONCLUSIONS: Hib disease still occurs at low levels in the United States, predominantly in socioeconomically disadvantaged populations. Low immunization coverage may facilitate continuing transmission of Hib. Special efforts to achieve complete and timely immunization in disadvantaged populations are needed.  (+info)

(8/4330) Abbreviated measures of food sufficiency validly estimate the food security level of poor households: measuring household food security.

This study was designed to develop an abbreviated method that captures both the qualitative and quantitative dimensions of household food security (HFS). Women in poor and very poor households (n = 238) in a peri-urban barrio in Caracas, Venezuela, provided data on food availability and their perception of food resource constraints and hunger experiences within the home. Socioeconomic data and food-related behavior that may predict HFS levels were gathered. On average, the top 12 food contributors of energy provided 81% and predicted more than 90% of the variation in households' total energy availability using stepwise regression analysis. On the other hand, a 4-point 12-item scale was shown to have face, content and construct validity with reiterative testing, factor analysis and a Chronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.92. Assessing predictors of energy availability together with a self-perceived HFS scale may provide a valid and reliable method for identifying and monitoring food security levels among poor urban households.  (+info)

Is saving a child from poverty adequate justification for adoption?


  • No one debates the dire need to save children from the ravages of poverty. And many countries around the world suffer from poverty so profound that citizens of more fortunate countries are severely taxed to understand it. So, if saving children from poverty is the REAL motivation: The money that would be spent raising ONE child in a manner consistent with the standard of living in a well-developed country could held dozens, if not hundreds, of poor children elevate their standard of living to adequate levels AND allow them to stay with their families.
  • Dear Torrejon, I do not think poverty is justification on its own. Poverty ALWAYS has the potential to be merely temporary, even in the worst situations. No one has the power to know what the future holds for certain. Even the worst possible scenarios sometimes have surprising endings. I also share the opinion saying poverty as a reason to separate families is classist and materialistic. This kind of thinking is what has brought forth the idea of eugenics and genocide. That money or possessions is what makes a solid family or human being, for that matter, is a horrible idea to perpetuate and would certianly cause some severe human rights violations if this attitude were one which became public policy. (Look at Georgia Tann's attitude and how much damage she did to adoption!) Whenever people decide they are "better" than others based on finances, religion, skin color etc. These people are forgetting that we are all in this together and that it is the character of a person that is truly important, whilst at the same time, demonstrating their own true colors for all to see! There are tragedies throughout history, great and small, which resulted from this kind of thinking. The Holocaust, Slavery, The BSE, The Spanish Inquisition, Darfur, The Rape of Nanking, many ethinc and racial crimes, etc.) There are many great people who grew up in abject poverty but managed to lead exemplary and notable lives. Some of these people even attribute their sucess to their experiences of being poor. Many of these same people also attribute their sucess to having strong family ties and sharing themselves with one another. Here's a list of poor kids who made good: http://www.chiprowe.com/articles/poorkid.html Several of our presidents had very humble beginnings, as have many of the world's gretest humanitarians, entertainers, writers, artists and philosophers. The list goes on. And don't forget Jesus. Many religions discourage too many material possessions. Monks and Nuns take vows of poverty to help keep them closer to God. IMO, love is far more important than money in building character and creating a positive and productive human being. An intact and loving family should never be purposely seperated for the sole reaon of poverty or under the guise of "charity". As another poster said, adoptions of this nature place an undue burden on the child and also has severe social ramifications on a larger scale. Someone else mentioned "donations" to the nation/orphanage/adoption center of the child's origin. This practice, is IMO not, in fact, a true donation. You get something in return. Just to be clear, I feel the same way about the pencils, stickers, address labels, totebags etc. that many charities send to you as a "thank you" for a donation. (Please don't think for a second I am comparing a human being to an item. Just my feeling on the idea of true chairity does not include benefits for the doner aside from the knowedge that they have given help.) I would prefer that the money spent on those items be used towards the cause. To me, the biggest "thank you" is seeing a problem alieviated. As to world hunger, this is something we all need to take part in solving. We as people need to become better at helping one another to solve this issue. Without compensation! Again, I believe true charity is anonymous and without expectaion of reciprocation. If we all worked together or gave just a little we could end the suffering of majority of the starving people in the world. Everyone has something they can give, even if it isn't money. Time, knowledge, emotional support are all necessary to achieve this goal.

Do you buy the nonsense that child obesity is due to poverty?


  • Some idiot lady on the news said it was cheaper to buy MacDonald's than to buy uncooked food. I mean, is this just a lazy person or fact? I can buy a pound of dried beans for less than a MacDonald's hamburger. I can cook for 4 people for under $5 and have a balanced and delicious meal. Where do you stand on this poverty nonsense and cooking?
  • Ha I love this question! I don't think it has a thing to do with poverty. Exercise is also something to consider when debating obesity, and exercise can be done for free. Hence that laziness of the person if they are also arguing that a mac donalds is cheaper!


How do the government or us define child poverty?


  • Just reading the news and i would like to know how do we define child poverty in the UK? is this like poor housing, not feeding the children well, poor clothing, bad parenting e.t.c
  • Poverty has more to do with income then "parenting". It's usually a case for neglect, rather then abuse.


Just because someone is disabled should they live in poverty?


  • There are so many severely disabled Americans. Why should they be forced to live in extreme poverty, to the point of dying because they are ill?
  • Because they can't work. They can't make thier own money. Americans are extremely conservative and any hint of socialism that is best for the masses send these selfish corrupt right wing nut jobs into a frenzy cause they are all so damn greedy. And god-forbid the insurance companies actually insure patients! That sounded like a bad rant. lol Sorry!


what health care options are there for young adult individuals well below poverty level?


  • Part time student living on my own paying for rent, energy usage, food, ect. on well below poverty income. I'm in desperate need of some dental work and general health coverage, but everywhere i look i'm not eligible because i don't have kids or some other stipulation.
  • As individuals we can help the poor through the United Nations. The UN has launched a campaign to end poverty by 2015. One of its major goals is to provide food to the poor. It also has a community http://www.orkut.co.in/Community.aspx?cmm=47234928 . We can also make them aware what their rights are and how they can get food at relished rates meant only for them.


How can I rid my self of poverty striken life?


  • This is not a Miss America question but a serious question as to what a single african american parent can do to pull herself and children up and away from poverty's clutches. I know the typical senerio education, working, better jobs but how can you also do this when these barriers (such as affordable child care) are what keeps you from these things?
  • It may be all you can do for now to stay afloat, treading water financially. You may need to wait until your kids are older to move ahead. Right now, more than anything, they need time with you. Most middle class people are living paycheck to paycheck, too. In the meantime, make their life better by reading to them, getting them to cultural events, get them in clubs where they see how the middle class lives. are you in section 8 housing? get into the best neighborhood you can, so your kids schools are good and neighbors have high expectations. You may not be able to go to school right now, but you can still learn and read at home. Use the "Tightwad Gazette" and other cheapskate tips to stretch your money. Find a freecycle in your area through yahoo groups and try to get as much free as you can. Are you on public assistance? Are you sure you're getting all you are entitled to to help you? I wonder if you could create these opportunities by creating a single-parent co-op. Get a network together, pool your talents, pool your childcare, hold seminars for each other, share wardrobes, run fundraising talent shows or yard sales. see if you can't create a business, no matter how small. micro-credit - very small loans for very small businesses = are available in some places and target women.

Should We Become Vegans To Fight Against Poverty ?


  • Wesley Smith vs PETA Hmm at times I could care less.The true mind boggling question is, why don't we put more emphasis on poverty and us, as human beings first than just animals. Don't get me wrong I believe we all should become vegetarians or at least be on a half leveled vegan diet.If that makes any sense which I doubt but if we did, many people acrossr countries would not stave. Also raising cattle brings the effect of climate change.
  • Yes, if we ate the grain fed to cattle world starvation would cease to exist. It's such an easy answer to the world's problems but for politians, such a hard topic to come to terms with. Sometimes, simplicity is hard to grasp, obviously :)
