WE will find out who and why. It does matter that we are no longer silent. It has cost US a great deal of pain and loss.

Via JMG: US Ranks 51st In Life Expectancy


According to figures just issued by the CIA World Factbook, the United States ranks 51st in the world for life expectancy.
The tiny tax haven of Monaco - with its notoriously wealthy inhabitants and compulsory state-funded health service - has the highest life expectancy at an average of 89.68 years, five years higher than anywhere else on earth, according to the CIA World Factbook. The country with the worst life expectancy is the African state of Chad at a shocking 48.69 years. Life expectancy in America ranks 51st in the CIA's table at 78.49 years - lower than Canada (81.48), Australia (81.90), New Zealand (80.71), Japan (83.91), the UK (80.17) and much of Europe. Of the top five longest-living nations the only large country is Japan, with the rest being city states. Life expectancy levels in South America and generally 10 years lower than those in North America. People are likely to live the shortest in sub-Saharan Africa, with no country in that vast region having an average life expectancy of over 60. The worst countries to live in if you want to reach old age are Afghanistan (49.72), Swaziland (49.42), South Africa (49.41) Guinea-Bissau (49.11) and Chad (48.69).
The full ranking of nations is here. The top-linked story does not mention that the lowest-ranked nations tend to be among those hardest hit by HIV/AIDS.

What is fair? As a country that spends more than it collects in taxes, are we asking the right taxpayers to pay the right amounts? Watch our video report: http://nyti.ms/11a7KA6.

Despite their complaints, most Americans in 2010 paid far less in total taxes — federal, state and local — than they would have paid 30 years ago, according to an analysis by The Times. Read more: http://nyti.ms/SkcZs7.

This January, why not start the year with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. Then, on New Years Eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that year. Good way to keep things in perspective! ~Krystal~
