Aging Asia Faces Issues Of Isolation And Poverty, Experts Warn | Poverty Assignment by_Jueniewann | Scoop.it
With 60 percent of the world’s population, Asia has one of the largest concentrations globally of aging persons, creating a host of potential challenges, experts warn.

Jueniewann SpotOn Sniper's insight:

well through this, many countries are facing ageing population. problems involving economy would rise, not forgetting causing poverty. as people age, they reach a point to where they are too old and have to retire. this is seen in many places, in many countries. the rate of peole working would decrease thus raising the amout of poverty higher. hopefully this problem can be tackled. maybe someone out there has a solution

The following is my insight on this article using the See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. I see that Asia is aging rapidly and most of the aging population will be women as depicted in the photo. I think that with the aging population, whole new challenges will surface such as lack of income after retirement and bad health (both mental and physical). Hence the government needs to come up with pension schemes for the elderly and affordable healthcare to prevent poverty from happening. I wonder if there is a way to prevent the aging population from increasing. 

Kyle Tan's curator insight, February 3, 2013 9:07 AM

Asian countries, besides Japan perhaps, need to plan now. These countries have grown older before they have grown rich. Many parts of asia are quite poor and with the aging population, more and more elderly is experiencing poverty. I think that the governments of these countires should set up things like CPF so that the elderly would be able to retire comfortably. Their children should also take care of them instead of letting them live in poverty.

Modern health mapping shows how poverty and ill health persist over 100 years

"It was no surprise to see that diabetes risk is high in areas where poverty was high. What was surprising was that some of these pockets of deprivation and ill-health have persisted for over 100 years."

Jueniewann SpotOn Sniper's insight:

well through poverty, many people have gotten really terrible sickness. from what i know, the rate of people who gained sickness are almost the same as those who were under the state of poverty. due to lack of proper food, their health could not be sustained. their immune system become worse thus making their body weak. furthermore, some places doesn't have proper medical places to help cure this sickly people. i pity them. if there is a way to help, i would have done so. i hope the richer peopl would also have that thought in mind and would do more than me to help them

From the article, I can see that there is a link between poverty and having illnesses. In poverty countries, people contract illnesses and they cannot afford to get medication to cure their illnesses, which becomes a problem. Being deprived of medication and illnesses have also persisted for over 100 years. I think that they need to have more hospitals and better medications so that they can lead a better lifestyle rather than suffering. I wonder why rich people did not built more hospitals in the countries facing poverty.

Ameer Artsyrup's curator insight, February 4, 2013 10:04 AM

After reading yhis article, i can deduce that there is a direct link between health problems and poverty. For example, the poeple who stay in countries that suffer from poverty suffer from health problems both physically and psychologically. This is happening towards them as their country might not have sufficient sanitation services to help protact them from diseases. The poeple from these area might also not knoew of the diseases that they are facing due to the insufficient amount of health services. The people might also suffer from psychological ilness due to som bacteria that ar not known by them that primarily attacks the brain. In order to stop this problem, the government of the affected country should learn from other governments and take risks to help its people.

A View From The Field: Addressing The Water-Energy-Poverty Nexus

A View From The Field: Addressing The Water-Energy-Poverty Nexus | Poverty Assignment by_Jueniewann | Scoop.it
Much of today’s conversation addressing the increasingly important connection between water and energy is focused on solutions applicable to urban centers and developed nations.

Jueniewann SpotOn Sniper's insight:

well i find that the solution they had tried to give was really helpful. it might even cure the rising poverty if this solutions were carried on. however i have this question in mind: who is willing to volunteer themselves to help? who truely have the heart and soul to help? thus, this might be a problem. however, i am sure that there are many kind souls that really want to help. like i said, this is a really good solution to the poverty. i hope this plan can be worked out and cure of all the sufferings of the poverty

this article tell people that, that more than 1.2 billion people in today’s world still live without access to electricity but nearly 800 million people don’t have access to a clean water source. Are the same people also struggling to survive without a regular supply of clean water? Unfortunately a lack of access to electricity and clean water is only a part of the problem. The combination of energy poverty, water poverty and economic poverty, for example – interconnected, holistic solutions need to be applied. combining solar-powered water purification systems.but all this education therefore we will need to teach the poor so that they will be able to use the item and maybe they will also be able to manufacture the items themselves so that the wont be reliant on people to supply tthem

Before reading this article,i know that poverty means that u are struggling alot on making a living.But after reading this article,i was shocked to know that more than 1.2 billion people in today’s world still live without access to electricity and 800 million people don’t have access to a clean water source. and nearly two-thirds of people who lack safe drinking water live on less than $2 a day.how can 800 million people not have access to clean water source?water is essential for human to survive and without it,tons of life will be lost so i hope that people can give those children living in poverty a proper education as only with proper education can you have a brighter future and break free from poverty

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training | Poverty Assignment by_Jueniewann | Scoop.it
For too long, the national dialogue about college education has been focused on access and affordability.
Jueniewann SpotOn Sniper's insight:

well through this article, people have been educated. they might have been taught of the problem of poverty. thus they might be able to play a role in helping the problem. another thing is that through education, they are able to find jobs more easily. they will also be able to feed their own family. so the more people get jobs, the lesser people will turn to poverty. thus through education, the problem of poverty might just be lessen down!

Shameerza's curator insight, February 3, 2013 7:04 AM

Using see-think-wonder, i can see that poverty is pretty linked to education. I mean like without education, you can't find a stable job therefore no income and by no income, there's nothing you can buy to feed yourself. Also in some poorer countries, some are uneducated and didn't know about any methods to prevent more births.Therefore it's overpopulated in many poor countries such as Africa. I think that education is important to everyone, it's a need to acquire knowledge and use it for good use.

Merci Goh's curator insight, February 4, 2013 8:10 AM

Using the See Think Wonder routine. From this Acticle I can see the Education is link to Poverty. Without Education we will not have the knowledge and without education knowledge we will not have jobs to help us earn money to make a living. People who does not have educations will not have jobs and will not have earning which leads to poverty. Families without Education will not be able to take care of thier children and they will get sick and may lead to death. I wonder why people don't feel thankful for having education, other people who wants education does not even get to have.

Mina Macy Markovic's curator insight, February 24, 2014 5:12 PM

In today's world, a college degree is something that is very important to have in order to have an good and stabled employment. The challenge for the people in poverty is the high expenses for college. This is increasingly beyond the reach for millions of youths and their families in not just to people who are in poverty but to even families who are in middle class economically. I think that this article is interesting as it tells us the problem with the educational system in our current generation, and also telling us the good solution to giving students from a low income family a chance to prove their worth and have a bright future. All this could start in high school by preparing them the best they can in order for the students to attend college.

Jueniewann SpotOn Sniper's insight:

i agree that the food prices rising is unreasonable. with such a high cost, how are families suppose to be able to feed themselves. due to the high cost, more and more family cant feed themselves. the thought of food industry thinking about the poverty may be impossible but i believe that if some sense are knocked into them, they might very well think that way. if they do, they are doing a big favour in curing the rising poverty. hopefully this might happen. in future i hope to see more families being happy that they can feed their themselves

Merci Goh's curator insight, February 4, 2013 7:24 AM

Using the See Think Wonder routine. We all know that food prices are all rising up, and I can see that many people are not able to effort it. But food is important for our lifes as we need it for energy to do any work. I can also see that parenrts are starting to skip meals just to unsure that their children are not going to school hungry. I think that the parents are not doing right by skipping meals as they may get weak and sick that they can't take care of their children. I wonder if the government will help this people and stop it by stoping the increase of food prices. Will this people be willing to ask the government for help? Will the government help them? With food prices only going in one direction – up – we need skills, Government commitment, and industry will-power to ensure food-banks do not become mainstream or a reality of economic austerity. 

yee melissa's curator insight, February 4, 2013 8:14 AM

I  have always noticed food pricing is always increasing. Food and water is the most basic thing in life. But how are we going to survive when food pricing is going up and up without our salary going up too? Thus more and more families are unable to put food on the table. Potatoes, one of the cheapest things with nutritional values, have risen up by 116 cents. Which is a lot. By doing these how can families continue to feed their families? How are they going to afford food when food pricing is increasing and increasing? Thus all these make the parents starve themselves and allow to children to eat without them going hungry in school. I think this is wrong because by doing this, they are going to fall sick and by falling sick they are unable to take care of their childrens. Which is causing more problems. There is families with insufficient food to feed their families around us and wants us to be more aware and to raise awareness. I will stop wasting food and only buying the right amount of food as buying more than enough food the food left aside for next time to cook will go bad. It is also to save money. I will treasure and count it as a blessing if i see food on the table and not to whine when i do not like the dish. I will treasure what i have. Can the Food Industry lower the price of the food and not increase it? It will really help alot of people by doing so.

Swee Khim's curator insight, January 20, 2014 10:24 AM

I knew that poverty is the condition where food is scarce and many people can suffer from malnutrition and die from starvation.

 Food is a basic need for everyone. 

I think that I need to change my habit of being choosy in the food I eat after looking at how many unfortunate are struggling to have a proper meal.  

I feel that we need a recipe to avert food poverty in a country.  The government should take more actions to help improve the economy such as increasing the employment rate and encourage citizens to be self-reliant.
