Oldest and Youngest Populations

Oldest and Youngest Populations | Navigate | Scoop.it

"There are 1.2 billion people between the ages of 15 and 24 in the world today — and that means that many countries have populations younger than ever before.  Some believe that this 'youth bulge' helps fuel social unrest — particularly when combined with high levels of youth unemployment.  Youth unemployment is a 'global time bomb,' as long as today’s millennials remain 'hampered by weak economies, discrimination, and inequality of opportunity.'  The world’s 15 youngest countries are all in Africa.  Of the continent’s 200 million young people, about 75 million are unemployed.

On the flip side, an aging population presents a different set of problems: Japan and Germany are tied for the world’s oldest countries, with median ages of 46.1. Germany’s declining birth rate might mean that its population will decrease by 19 percent, shrinking to 66 million by 2060. An aging population has a huge economic impact: in Germany, it has meant a labor shortage, leaving jobs unfilled."

10 Photos from the First World War

The Great War ravaged Europe from July 28, 1914 until November 11, 1918, killing 9 million combatants. Though sparked by the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, the threat of imperialism was the conflict's true underlying cause. It was a war that eventually garnered global involvement with Japan and the United States joining the Allies (the United Kingdom, France, and the Russian Empire) and the Ottoman Empire joining the Central Powers of Germany and Austria-Hungary. "The most costly and destructive war in the world's history," to quote historian H.P. Willmott, was also a conflict that later triggered revolutions in many of the nations that participated.Here are ten powerful photos from the war that changed the world.

Break-dancing to a Bach composition may seem like a culture clash, but one show is out to prove that music really can break barriers.

 

Red Bull Flying Bach is bringing its production to New Zealand, marrying the classical composition of 18th century composer Johann Sebastian Bach with the fancy footwork of break-dancing world champions Flying Steps.
