The Fading American Dream "Children's prospects of achieving the "American Dream" of earning more than their parents have fallen from 90% to 50% over the past half century. This decline has occurred throughout the parental income distribution, for children from both low and high income families"
-the largest declines (are) for families in the middle class
-Absolute mobility fell in all 50 states, although the rate of decline varied, with the largest declines concentrated in states in the industrial Midwest, such as Michigan and Illinois.
-Reasons why this may have happened: lower Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rates and greater inequality in the distribution of growth.We find that most of the decline in absolute mobility is driven by the more unequal distribution of economic growth rather than the slowdown in aggregate
growth rates.

Obesity now kills more people worldwide than car crashes, terror attacks, and Alzheimer's combined

Five takeaways from a giant study on an epidemic governments can't ignore.

“Today, for the first time in history, more people are dying from too much unhealthy food than they are from too little healthy food,” Mike Bloomberg, WHO Global Ambassador for Noncommunicable Diseases, said in a statement. “This is a global epidemic that governments can no longer ignore, because there are many steps that they can take to tackle obesity and save lives.”

Hubble: Galaxies Across Space and Time [Ultra HD, Captioned]
YouTube l https://www.youtube.com/

The sky looks the same behind every wall, unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere! "This award-winning short film transforms images and data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope into a voyage that sweeps viewers across the universe and back into cosmic history.

The film opens with looming images of two mature galaxies that are relatively nearby Earth, and then pans through the vibrant and diverse panorama of thousands of galaxies in an image from the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey. The ensuing 3-D journey through these galaxies provides more than just a new perspective in space; it also takes the audience back in time. Because light takes time to journey across space, the galaxies farther away from Earth are seen further back in cosmic history. The virtual voyage reveals galaxies as they appeared billions of years ago, when they were still in the process of forming."
