Here is a different view of the days that I walk this earth. Like many, I'm just passing through, but I share these pieces with you. Slices of my life, my family, my work, world and wisdom. I haven't the time to do a full blown blog on myself, so I use this to collect what elevates, inspires and catches my interest. These posts ever aid me in my faithful "pursuit of happyness". So follow me as I tumbl' through the ages, updating from my iPhone, and letting the pieces fall as they may. Every so often you need to jump off the cliff to make those wings come alive again ;)

The world’s population in 2100
THE  world’s population will reach 7 billion by the end of October,  according to the latest projections from the United Nations. For the  first time the UN has attempted to look as far ahead as 2100, using  various assumptions about how fertility and mortality rates might change  over the years. The average of these estimates suggests that the global  population will cross 10 billion by 2085. By 2100, 22.3% of people will  be aged 65 or over, up from just 7.6% in 2010. The bulk of population  growth is expected to come from the developing world. Africa’s  population will rise from 1 billion in 2010 to 3.6 billion in 2100. In  1950, 32% of the world’s people lived in today’s rich countries. By  2100, only 13% will.
