Is the scare tactic about the global insufficiency of water akin to that of global food? If so the mega corporations who deal in these commodities can put quite a fear in the world's population. We all know what happens when people react out of fear.

Does where you live have a high poverty rate? Are you experiencing porverty? Or are you one of the increasing numbers of Middle Class Poor?

One does not need to refer to the above map to know where to find the poor and needy. These days, we can look inside our own front door to see it in action. 

Reed Klunder 's curator insight, May 20, 2014 3:33 PM

The economy today is becoming more and more unlivable. things are becoming costly, people are losing jobs and can't afford their homes and families anymore. In a small area in Cleveland there is an 80% poverty rate. This is just one of the thousand areas that have a poverty rate of 80% or higher. this isn't healthy and it's becoming harder to live every year. 

Lakin's comment, May 23, 2014 1:45 PM
It shocked me knowing that about 80% of Cleveland is in poverty. I believe that by that they should raise the minimum wage so people can live more comfortably. They should also make more jobs available so the unemployment rate and poverty rates aren't that high.

Close-up of Kiev's Independence Square

Close-up of Kiev's Independence Square | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

"Protests have centered on the capital's Independence Square, also known as the Maidan, where protesters had set up camp over a number of months. The stand-off turned violent this week as riot police moved in to clear the protest camp.  Security forces had given protesters a deadline of Tuesday 18 February to leave the square, but instead, violence took hold and battles between the demonstrators and police left a number of people dead. Independence Square, which for weeks was the setting for a mostly peaceful protest camp, now more closely resembles a siege, as the remaining protesters attempt to hold their ground."

This close up view of Kiev shows how the geographic location of its independence square was placed serves as a great place to protest. It represents the center, the circle of the city, close to the places of power; the government house, parliament. Its long streets lead to the capital's independence square the center for the country, but what started to be peaceful protests where an important monument stands, is now where violence takes place.

Europe gas level high as prices rise

Gas and oil prices have risen amid fears the Ukraine crisis could have a damaging effect on one of Europe's main energy supply routes.  But analysts say high European gas stocks will limit the turbulence.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, March 5, 2014 4:24 PM

There is a distinct fact that Gas travels into the Ukraine from Russia and Belarus and leaves for Europe. Where as the gas fields are towards the east and they dont venture toward Belarus but more towards Russia and Hungry and Crimea.Gas and oil prices have risen so that it can be distrubuted and taken care of that way where as the transportation costs money. Fears about the Ukraine crisis could have a huge effect on one of Europe's main energy supply routes. But the command will even out the chaos.

Jess Deady's curator insight, May 2, 2014 5:50 PM

Gas prices are rising all over the world. The demand for gas is incredibly high as well since most people are driving their own vehicles to work and such. Cutting transportation down to traveling together and on public systems would help immensely with the gas rising problems.

Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, December 17, 2014 10:21 PM

Russia provides about a quarter of Europe's gas, half of it through Ukraine. Gas and oil prices have risen amid fears the Ukraine crisis could have a damaging effect on one of Europe's main energy supply routes. But analysts say high European gas stocks will limit the turbulence. Gas futures climbed by up to 10% in early trading, while the benchmark price for oil rose by more than 2%. Traders are worried about the stability of supplies from Russia, which provides a quarter of Europe's natural gas, half of it through Ukraine. However, a relatively mild winter has reduced demand for heating fuel, with storage levels at the main gas hubs about 20% greater than last year. In Germany, Europe's biggest gas consumer and Russia's largest customer, stocks are at more than 60% of capacity, capable of satisfying 60 days of demand.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, April 26, 2014 4:01 PM

The parameters of the measure of the economy are so broad that the numbers don't really mean anything. Each country counts different things. The GDP of the US cannot be compared to the GDP of other countries because the cost of living in each place is so wildly different. When compared to Japan our economies are close but compared to any country in Africa they are completely different. Measurement of the economy is not an overly useful number.

UK Shame | Number of people turning to food banks triples in a year to 350k

UK Shame | Number of people turning to food banks triples in a year to 350k | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it
Number of people turning to food banks triples in a year   Patrick Butler, social policy editor
    The Guardian, Wednesday 24 April 2013
.
Charity says up to 650 more food banks are needed across UK to cope with surging demand
.
More than 350,000 people turned to food banks for help last year, almost triple the number who received food aid in the previous year and 100,000 more than anticipated, according to the UK's biggest food crisis charity.

The Trussell Trust said the dramatic increase in the use of its food banks was set to continue in the coming months as poorer families struggle financially as a result of the government's welfare reforms.

The Trussell Trust executive chairman, Chris Mould, said: "The sheer volume of people who are turning to food banks because they can't afford food is a wake-up call to the nation that we cannot ignore the hunger on our doorstep."

He added: "Politicians across the political spectrum urgently need to recognise the real extent of UK food poverty and create fresh policies that better address its underlying causes. This is more important than ever as the impact of the biggest reforms to the welfare state since it began start to take effect.

"Since 1 April we have already seen increasing numbers of people in crisis being sent to food banks with nowhere else to go."

Although it has established 345 food banks, the trust says there is insufficient capacity nationally and that between 400 and 650 more food banks are needed to cope with expected demand. It is opening new projects at the rate of three a week, but says geographical gaps in coverage mean "thousands of people are facing hunger today in towns with no food banks".

The rise in the numbers of people using Trussell-Trust-backed food banks in part reflects a 76% increase in the number of food banks set up over the past year. But the trust said it had seen a 170% increase in the number of people given food boxes over the same period.

Nearly a third of food parcel recipients had been referred to the trust because their social security benefits had been delayed. A further 15% came as a result of their benefits being cut or stopped (up from 11% in 2011-12). The trust said the majority of people turning to food banks were working-age families.

Mould said: "We're seeing people from all kinds of backgrounds turning to food banks: working people coming in on their lunch-breaks, mums who are going hungry to feed their children, people whose benefits have been delayed and people who are struggling to find enough work."

Trussell food boxes contain three days' supply of non-perishable foods such as tinned fruit, vegetables, meat and fish as well as pasta, cereal, UHT milk, sauces, tea, and long-life juice. Recipients must be referred by care professionals such as social workers or police officers, and are limited to three vouchers a year.

Mary Creagh, the shadow environment secretary, said: "The UK is the seventh richest country in the world yet we face a growing epidemic of hidden hunger with people increasingly unable to meet their family's basic needs. This incompetent government needs to wake up the human cost of their failed economic policies and change course now."

Although the Trussell figures are one of the most robust indicators of the prevalence of food poverty, they represent just a fraction of the growth in emergency food aid in the UK, much of it small-scale and ad hoc, and run through local churches, community groups and housing associations.

The Salvation Army, which also provides emergency food parcels, said many of its local branches ran informal food banks, but it did not collect statistics on a national basis. Anecdotally, it said several of its local branches – known as "corps" – had witnessed an increase in the number of requests for food parcels.

A spokesman for the Department for Work and Pensions said the rise in numbers of people using food banks was partly explained by the decision of jobcentres to refer some clients to food banks, and partly a reflection of the success of Trussell's own "marketing activity".

He said: "The government already provides a safety net for essentials like food and housing through the benefits system and claimants can also request a benefit advance or help from their local authority where needed."

However, local authorities have complained that jobcentres are refusing to issue short-term benefit loans to penniless claimants. Many councils have also entered into agreements to refer recipients of local crisis support to food banks following the abolition of the social fund.

Book Review: Children of Men by P.D. James | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it
I was very excited to finally buy the book Children of Men by P.D. James because I liked the movie and thought it was an interesting concept for a book. The basic premise of this book was that humanity is unable to reproduce. No one knows the reason or the cause. It follows the life of a college history professor who runs into a group of “rebels” that want his help in taking down the government. It deals with dictatorship, power, decay of civilization, acceptance of death, socioeconomic disparities, and the treatment of criminals.

WITH THE ECONOMY IN FREE FALL AND
MILLIONS THROWN OUT OF WORK, AMERICA’S FRAGILE
DEMOCRACY COLLAPSES.
The federal government is left powerless, police and military forces disband, and a once-proud America descends into lawless anarchy. Cities empty. Looting, violence and murder quickly become the norm. And desperate citizens are left to fight for their very survival. Amid the chaos, one teenager finds himself homeless and alone, striving to stay alive on the outskirts of a crumbling Washington, D.C. Forced to adapt by the constant threat of starvation and violence, the young man finds himself developing survival skills he never imagined needing and a moral sense that gives meaning to his struggle. American Apocalypse is a riveting coming-of-age story where one man, against all odds, must find the will to live and, in turn, become a fledgling force of justice.
