Massachusetts teens marched to the State House in Boston to protest cuts in financing for jobs.

This year is shaping up to be even worse than last for the millions of high school and college students looking for summer jobs.  State and local governments, traditionally among the biggest seasonal employers, are knee-deep in budget woes, and the stimulus money that helped cushion some government job programs last summer is running out. Private employers are also reluctant to hire until the economy shows more solid signs of recovery.

Defining The Ages of Social Networking Users

social net chart 111

Royal Pingdom conducted a study of the age distribution of different social networking sites. It’s often middle-aged people who dominate the user bases of these sites:

Although we can’t say how this will change over time, at the moment the older generations are for one reason or another (tech savvy, interest, etc.) not using social networking sites to a large extent. This probably reflects general internet usage, but we suspect the difference is enhanced when it comes to the social media sphere where site usage tends to be more frequent and time-consuming than usual.

Report: 2 Million Children Die Each Year in India Before They Reach Age Five

Children India 372

It’s a rough life as a young child in India

Despite India’s economic prosperity, nearly two million children under the age of five, die every year in the country, the highest number anywhere in the world, a media report said today.
More than half of them die the month after birth and 400,000 in their first 24 hours, The Observer said based on a report by an international NGO ‘Save the Children’.
Even in the national capital, Delhi, where an estimated 20 per cent of people live in slums, the infant mortality rate was reported to have doubled in a year, it said.
“The difference between rich and poor is huge. In a city like Delhi it is starker because we have got state-of-the-art hospitals and women giving birth under flyovers. The health services have failed to deliver,” Shireen Miller, Head policy and advocacy of the NGO in India said.
The report also revealed that the poor are disproportionately affected and accused the country of failing to provide adequate healthcare for the impoverished majority of one billion people.
Malnutrition, neonatal diseases, diarrhoea and pneumonia were identified as the major causes of death.
“For many poor parents and their children, seeking medical help is a luxury and health services are often too far away,” Miller said
The report said nearly nine million children die worldwide every year before the age of five. India has the highest number of deaths, with China on the fifth place.
