We see them all over during the spring, but in recent years, more and more bee colonies have died off. Between April of 2011 and April of 2012, a total of 29% of US managed honey bee colonies were lost. Between April of 2015 and April of 2016 almost 45% of managed US bee colonies were lost. This is an increase of
“Beekeepers across the United States lost 44 percent of their honey bee colonies during the year spanning from April 2015 to April 2016” (“Nation’s Beekeepers lost 44 percent of bees in 2015-2016”). Many famers today plant their cops in sections farther apart depending on the plant. When the bees go to collect nectar they cannot get as much food without getting tired. This has had an effect on bees because they die faster from having to fly so far. Many beekeepers think that this reason causes bees to fade away.
Cardiovascular diseases are the worldwide health care issue representing 30% of mortalities. Heart valve diseases are life threatening affecting ~2.5% of the general population in economically developed countries (V.T. Nkomo et al. 2006). Approximately 100,000 heart valve replacements are performed each year in the U.S.
The economy of the United States expanded greatly through the 1920 's reaching its climax in August 1929. By this point, production had already declined and unemployment was at an all-time high, leaving stocks to imitate their real value. During the stock market crash of 1929, better known as Black Tuesday, investors traded vast numbers of shares in a single day, causing billions of dollars to be lost and millions of investors to be eliminated. This "crash" signaled the beginning of a decade long Great Depression that would affect all Western industrialized nations; a crash that would later become known as one of the darkest, longest lasting, economic downturns in American history. People all around the world suffered greatly as personal income,
The world health organization has revealed that the illegal trade in kidneys has risen to such a level that an estimated 10,000 black market operations involving purchased human organs now take place annually or more than an hour. The world health organization (WHO) estimates that over 100,000 organ transplant has performed across the world every year. But due to a mix of government policies, personal beliefs about organ donation, and our ability to safely harvest organs quickly, we would need over ten times as many donations to meet global needs. It is a universal truth, that whenever supply doesn’t meet demand, people turn to illegal means. WHO estimates 5% to 10% of all organ transplants performed worldwide are illegal and out of that 75% are the kidneys, the most sought-after organ.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) estimated that the Icelandic volcano crisis cost airlines more than $1.7 billion in lost revenue six days after the initial eruption. On days when disruptions were greatest, losses reached $400 million per day. As many as 1.2 million passengers a day were affected. Later analysis concluded that some 107,000 flights were canceled during a 8 day period representing 48% of the total air traffic. On certain days as much as 80% of total flights were canceled.
In the industrialized world, the population incidence of S. aureus bacteremia ranges from 10 to 30 per 100,000 persons in a year. Rates of getting infections are high in the first year of life. A low incidence takes place throughout young adulthood and a gradual rise in incidence occurs with advancing age. Infective endocarditis incidence was originally 1.5 to 6 per 100,000 person in a year. It has increased to 16.6 per 100,000 person in a years in 2006.
However, having have too much of a varied economy and a skilled population to suffer a death blow even if our energy industry continues to contract. Over the past 6 months, Rigs are being shut down and more than 20,000 energy workers in this country have been laid off since crude and natural gas prices started to collapse this past fall. Through this period, the U.S. GDP has continued to grow. the oil and gas extraction sector added nearly $300 billion to the nation's GDP last year, that amount is still less than 2 percent of overall U.S. output and that jobs in the oil and natural gas industry amount to a tiny fraction of total, nonfarm
Abuse of and addiction to alcohol, nicotine, and illegal and prescription drugs cost more than $700 billion a year in increased health care costs, crime, and lost productivity. 1,2,3 Every year, illegal and prescription drugs and alcohol contribute to the death of more than 90,000 westerners, while nicotine is related to an estimated 480,000 deaths per year. People of all ages know the dreadful consequences of drug abuse and addiction. 1)Babies: exposed to drugs in the womb may be born premature and underweight. This exposure can reduce the child’s mental development and influence his behavior later in life.
Hernandez 1 Hector Hernandez ENGL V01A February 6, 2018 The World of Plenty Our vast population growth is asphyxiating our world. Over the past century alone the population has gone from 1.5 billion to over 7 billion. We as human beings have evolved to the point to where a once fatal broken leg is means little to us. Advances in technology have helped us survive for longer periods of time, which is a blessing and a curse. Many scientists believe the maximum carrying capacity of earth is around 10 billion, and this number is based on the number of resources available to us and the limited availability of fresh water (Wolchover).
