Tetra Pak china achieve a huge success after 10 years--- approximately 167,300 tonners of UBCs were recycled in China. The first recycling above is the original recycling chain in China, which is very basic and not very efficiency due to the daily used beverage cartons keep increase, on the other hand, the current recycling chain is more efficiency. Tetra Pak working with many partners to improve the recycling, moreover, Tetra Pak support their partner to increase the recycling capacity and educate the collectors and consumers.
For centuries, China has been one of the most populated nations on Earth. In the past century, China has implemented new policies to limit the population growth, with the most famous one being the One Child Policy. In the past, Mao Zedong encouraged large families and abortions and contraception was outlawed. Naturally, this caused a surge in population. After his death, Deng Xiaoping decided that the population would have to be curbed if China wanted to achieve economic growth.
Medicare has been the traditional health care insurance for the elderly for decades. As the aging population rises rapidly, there is an increased demand for coverage for baby boomers as they use almost double the amount of health care as younger generations (Williams & Torrens, 2008). By 2029, 75 million baby boomers will be expected to reach the age 65 (Mann, Raphael, Anthony, & Nevitt, (2016). One of the main questions is how will this generation afford long-term care as it is the personal responsibly of the patient (Edlund, Lufkin, & Franklin, 2003). There is a very limited coverage of benefits for long-term care.
In the recent times, surrogacy is more and more prevalent. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the number of reported babies born live in the U.S. as a result of gestational surrogacy has more than doubled in seven years — from 738 in 2004 to 1,593 in 2011. It is also known that there have been differing rates of success for the various types of surrogacy procedures. For instance, when using in vitro fertilization with mothers who are under the age of 35, success can be as high as 60 percent or more.
Although the Victorian Era was known for its economic growth, the truth behind the hardships that children faced in order to survive were heartbreaking. With Queen Victoria’s sixty-four-year reign, England’s population doubled, having more money than ever before (Glencoe 907/Glencoe 916). However, with this growth, became the struggle of raising children. The “probability of becoming abandoned became greater because the work doubled for the single parent in trying to sustain the family” (Nierendorf).
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) has been an ongoing issue for childbearing families and health care providers for decades. In developed countries, SIDS is the most common cause of death in children between one and twelve months of age (Strehle et al., 2012). Since the Safe Sleep campaign was established in 1994, the incidence of SIDS has decreased by approximately 53% over a ten-year span (Chung-Park, 2012). Although the decrease in SIDS deaths has been significant, the number is still alarmingly high and the problem is an on going issue. It is crucial that caregivers of newborns are informed with evidence-based information to ensure full knowledge with safe sleeping position (Chung-Park, 2012).
The need for birth control has grown due to increased sexual activity in teens. Each year 850,000 adolescent girls become pregnant. 41.3% of pregnancy are teens 15-19 years old and 20% of abortions are teens. With the growing use of birth control in teens in the last decade teen pregnancy rates are steadily going down.
According to the article Why Women Live Longer than Men women, as a group, live longer than men. In all developed countries and most undeveloped ones, women outlive men, sometimes by a margin of as much as 10 years. In the U.S., life expectancy at birth is about 79 years for women and about 72 years for men. The gender discrepancy is most pronounced in the very old: among centenarians worldwide, women outnumber men nine to one. The gender gap has widened in this century as gains in female life expectancy have exceeded those for
Aging is a huge risk factor for breast cancer, in that, the older women get, the more their body changes and the risk for developing breast cancer increases. “Seventy-five percent of breast cancers occur in women older than age 50.1” Women live longer now than they did in the past, which allows time for the breast cancer to not only develop but be detected. Technology has
In a more recent history, the changing economy alongside the rise of feminism and the breakthrough of birth control, resulted in the swap over of gendered household duties. Consequently, this has also impacted fathers’ roles in the household. Another factor which resulted in the shift of gendered roles was the absence of male workers who became soldiers during the Second World War, which required women to fill the traditional manufacture jobs previously held by men. The war industry also created many new manufacturing opportunities which has continued long after the end of the war and has not declined. Studies indicate that between 1948 and 2001, the percentage of employed women, or women seeking work nearly doubled.
More babies were born after the war than ever before just in 1946 alone 3.4 million babies were born, and begun the so called “baby boom.” Couples after the war had children to make up for the lost time, and the economic prosperity of America at the time. At the same time the suburban boom occurred with families moving out of the cities into surrounding areas. Year after year more and more babies were born with the numbers rising every year until over 4 million babies a year were born; until 1964 when the birth rate started to decline, and ending the baby boom generation. By the end of 1964 baby boomers made over 40% of America’s population.
The explosion of the Second World War gave way to the most defined era of the 20th century. In the wake of a war torn decade, the growing prospect of opportunity spurred the inception of the “Baby Boom”. Millions of individuals were introduced into our world at a rate never seen before in our nation’s history, and as does every generation, these millions of Baby Boomers are aging at an unprecedented rate also. The average lifespan of individuals has steadily increased since the postwar decades with the much advancement in healthcare. The majority of today 's population is expected to live into their eighties.
In a period of 30 years the poverty rate of immigrants across America more than doubled. In 1970 of the 4,605 immigrants in this country 12% percent or 552 immigrants were in poverty. By the year 2000 of the 112,016 immigrants in this country 44% or 49,287 were in poverty. Although the change seems grand, due to the rising amount of immigrants in this country the amounts closely replicate each other.
Statistics show a large increase in these prescriptions being filled according to my article…“In 2000, American retail pharmacies dispensed 174 million prescriptions for opiates; by 2009 that figure had climbed to 257 million, an increase of 48 per cent in less than a decade....” (Turner). That is a very dramatic increase for just one decade in time. With the ease of access to this medication being easier to obtain than ever before the market to illegally obtain these drugs is increasing as well. In the article “ Many People Are Addicted to Drugs That Were Prescribed for Them in the Past” the fact the market to obtain drugs illegally is increasing is supported by this quote “Last year, 63 per cent of people on prescription drugs strayed from doctor 's orders or sought out pills that weren 't intended for them at all”(Turner).
Long life has always been considered a blessing. Today, the people of the United States are enjoying the benefit of living much longer than ever before in history. However, there is a flipside to this coin of longevity. The population of the United States is aging at an unprecedented rate. “In 2010, 40 million people age 65 and over accounted for 13 percent of the total population in the United States.”
