The one thing Cameron Diaz will never wear again "No way" , according to an interview in the latest issue of 'Harper's Bazaar', is This is good to know. But as fashion tips for the post something woman go, it's disappointing. Most of us over 40s last wore a tube top or, as they're better known on these shores, "boob tube" on a holiday in Greece two decades ago.
When glamorous women make age-appropriate dressing statements part of the deal once they hit 40 , we hope for something more relevant to our daily lives: Forty is nothing, by the way. It's the new 50, and Fiona Bruce is You barely have to make any adjustments, but it's a bit ostrich-like to pretend everything stays the same forever, and this is as good a point as any to take stock of your options going forward.
So here are 40 things every woman over the age of 40 woman should know about fashion. Do not go quietly into the navy mid-heel pump, or the plain loafer, or the really useful so comfy trainer. You can always do a fun shoe and display a well-turned ankle. More to the point, a shoe is where you score your fashion points when you are past Sex Pistols T-shirts and floral coronets which you are.
The just-got-out-of-bed, beach-bleached hair days are on the way out. Conditioner is everything now. And whatever you do, don't over-trim. A bob at this stage could put a decade on you instantly. As a rule, you want to go less mean and edgy, and more glamorous.
I know that sounds creepy. But the sulky, not bothered expression that you may think cool see Victoria Beckham will start to look sour and a bit "my back is killing me" in your 40s. So boring to be told to ditch black because it's draining on older skin. Happily, it's not quite true.
Dull matte black is draining, but lush black is fine for a few more years, especially if it's glossy satin or velvet , so long as you ramp it up with splashy earrings and red lipstick. Only because you will start to look like every other greying something in the Western world.
Why do you think J Law and Taylor Swift above have gone punky bone-white blonde? Because safe blonde is the colour of middle age, that's why. Just saying it works for some, but don't cling to the free spirit ideal at the expense of a sloppy silhouette. I like rough teeth. I missed Bowie's after the refurb. But there is no doubt that yellowing teeth are not youthful. But it does inject a certain carefree, barefoot vibe. Don't try this at work; it works best when you are gardening. But, as of now, these must be worn with a pedicure.
The unwashed look is no longer a runner. This applies equally to men. David Beckham post-match easily tips over into Rhys Ifans the morning after a very late night. You are never too old for the latest jeans if you look good in jeans.
Same goes for leather trousers but you need the legs. Quite flattering on the older arm, contrary to rumour, especially if not too puffy and not too short. And obviously Cate Blanchett pictured above gave them a go the other day - but in our opinion it doesn't work. A jumpsuit is quite different. Some are not so strict on this one. I say anything Alice in Wonderland does, leave it well alone.
The whole maxi thing is a bit of a lottery. It can work, but if it's too folksy, too floaty, too flouncy, too 70s ambassadress, all can add roughly 10 years. Never, ever go for long sleeves and a long hemline. Now it's those hand-embroidered, pompom-tie jackets in Zara. Also traditional Ukrainian Vita Kin blouses and dresses, which may look great on Pandora Delevingne's friends she sells them , but will always look better on her daughter Cara.
You can wear denim cut-offs forever. What you want to avoid is those very tight and high-cut Daisy Dukes that your teenage daughter is currently trying to get away with. You just never know. Pashmina dimensions, good-looking and bold.
Sling it on over anything plain and you get instant cool points, plus colour. I had a black satin dress that I looked fine in until precisely the age of It's almost like a chemical reaction, and it'll hit you right out of the blue. Sometimes okay in small doses. But definitely one to watch. You were Kate Moss; you are now Abigail at her party. Tips over into blowsy any day now. Do as Carine Roitfeld above does and wear snake print instead.

This increase of million is larger than the combined populations of the U. The immigrant share of the population will reach one in six U. Immigration levels have fallen somewhat in recent years.
A one-third reduction in the Census Bureau's projected level of net immigration over the next four decades produces a total U. The projections show immigration only slightly increases the working-age 18 to 65 share of the population. Raising the retirement age by one year would have a larger positive impact on the working-age share over the next 40 years than would the Census Bureau's projected level of net immigration 68 million.
While immigrants tend to arrive relatively young and have higher fertility than natives, immigrants age just like everyone else, and the differences with natives are not large enough to fundamentally increase the share of the population who are potential workers. These projections follow the Census Bureau's assumptions about future levels of immigration and death and birth rates, including a decline in the birth rate for Hispanics.
The fundamental question for the American public and policy makers is whether a much larger population and the resulting greater population density will add to or diminish the quality of life in the United States. Asian and Hispanic immigration rates have reversed from It was only in that the U.
Among Asians 25 or older, 49 percent hold a college degree, compared with 28 percent of all people in that age range in the United States. In , the former U. The video is from an online course called the Habitable Planet. A growing body of evidence suggests that expanding economic and educational opportunities, rising border crime and shrinking families are suppressing illegal traffic as much as economic slowdowns or immigrant crackdowns in the United States.
Millions of illegal immigrants have come to the United States over the past 30 years, but that flood has sputtered to a trickle. In the Mexican state of Jalisco, relatives are returning; older brothers who once crossed illegally are awaiting visas; and the younger ones are staying put, getting college degrees. The Mexican census recently discovered four million more people in Mexico than had been projected, which officials attributed to a sharp decline in emigration.
American census figures analyzed by the nonpartisan Pew Hispanic Center show that fewer than , illegal border-crossers and visa-violators from Mexico settled in the United States in , down from about , annually from to The question is why.
Experts and American politicians from both parties have generally looked inward, arguing about the success or failure of the buildup of border enforcement and tougher laws limiting illegal immigrants' rights — like those recently passed in Alabama and Arizona. Deportations have reached record highs as total border apprehensions and apprehensions of Mexicans have fallen by more than 70 percent since Just as a Mexican baby boom and economic crises kicked off the emigration waves in the s and '90s, research now shows that the easing of demographic and economic pressures is helping keep departures in check.
Mexican families are smaller than they had once been, shrinking the pool of likely migrants, with birth control efforts resulting in about 2 children per woman, down from 6. At the same time, educational and employment opportunities have greatly expanded in Mexico. On the other hand legal immigration is expanding.
In Mexico, visas without a Congressionally mandated cap on how many people can enter have increased from to , compared with the previous five years. Read much more on this by following the link in the headline above. Latinos have made up an increasing share of the U. States along the U.
Another factor, mostly for Arizona was that, beginning in the early to mids, the Immigration and Naturalization Service set up blockades in California and Texas to avert the entry of immigrants, resulting in more immigrants entering through Arizona. More than half of foreign-born Latinos living in Arizona in have entered the United States since California's weakening economy has also pushed many Latino immigrants to other states.
The population of Arizona more than doubled from 2. Latinos accounted for two-fifths of the nearly 3. The growth in Arizone due to whites has declined while Arizona's growth due to Latinos has risen significantly across the last three decades. One in every two people added to the state's population between and was Latino.
Latinos outnumber whites in the two youngest age groups 0 to 4 and 5 to 9. While the median age of the white population is 43, it is only 26 among Latinos. A younger age structure creates population momentum for Latinos through a high number of births relative to deaths. In , while there were 1. The shifting racial and ethnic composition of the Arizona population has led to the creation of practices and policies, such as SB, and the patrolling of its border by vigilante groups.
Charges have been leveled that Latino immigrants are taking jobs from Americans and that they are not integrating into the American mainstream. Others, however, argue that Latino immigrants take low-paying and dangerous jobs that many American shun. They also are concerned about the potential for racial profiling and the violation of human rights associated with laws such as SB The growth of the Latino population in Arizona has not occurred in a vacuum.
The families of many Latinos in the state have been there for generations. Furthermore, globalization, the expansion of economies across international borders, and the aging of the populations of developed countries all stimulate the movement of people into places such as Arizona.
Immigrants, when they first come to the U. They drive fewer miles and often pack themselves into high density living situations. They consume fewer goods. However, if they cross the border illegally through environmentally sensitive areas, they do have high impact in those areas. Immigrants soon grow into the American way of life and their ecological footprint increases, until their impact approaches that of the average American: For more on the impact of an average American on the environment, go to WOA!!
California's, population grew by more than 4. The addition of 2,, immigrants between and represents The primary consumer of water in California is agriculture and industry. Much agricultural water is wasted. Higher prices encourage investments in irrigation systems and a change in crop selection. Farmers use more water than they would if market forces were allowed to guide the use of water.
On a national level, we are using LESS water today than we did 20 years ago. While the population of the U. Even a slight increase in the price of water or energy results in pressure to conserve water.
The primary consumers are irrigation and industry, both have curtailed their water usage. Increased consumption is evident in the public supply and livestock. Population growth across the nation needs to be brought under control. Arizona's population growth rate compares to Pakistan, Tanzania, and Honduras while Colorado's is similar to that of Ghana, El Salvador, and the Philippines.
Last, senior writer at The Weekly Standard, insists that America is heading over a demographic cliff because we're not making enough babies. We added more than million in the last 40 years, and in the next 40 to 50 years, according to the U. Census Bureau, we will add another million, most of it directly and indirectly from immigration.
Our current population of million runs a substantial ecological deficit that is pushing us ever deeper into ecological debt, according to the Global Footprint Network, which says: But we only have one planet at our disposal. Part of caring for our planet is having the collective wisdom to live within limits, including limiting the size of our families and population.
We are busily sawing off the limb upon which the entire human enterprise rests—degrading and squandering the "natural capital" that makes sustainable economic prosperity possible. Last quotes Julian Simon who said that "…growing populations lead to increased innovation and conservation.
Human ingenuity, it turns out, is the most precious resource. Commodity prices did fall from to , but in the s prices for almost all raw materials have increased sharply.
Americans mistook temporary abundance of nonrenewable natural resources like the fossil fuels and metals as permanent sufficiency. It's a miscalculation with monumental consequences.
We have fewer wetlands, fewer free-flowing rivers, less available surface and groundwater, less open space, fewer remaining fossil fuels and high grade metal and mineral ores, fewer arable soils, fewer healthy and more diseased forests, more wildfires and droughts, record temperatures, fewer fish, less de facto wilderness, more threatened and endangered species, more harmful invasive species, higher carbon dioxide emissions, and more crowded parks and beaches than ever before.
The climate is becoming more erratic; sea level is rising, and the oceans are becoming more polluted and acidic. Julian Simon once bragged: Physicist Al Bartlett calculated that after just 17, years only 0. However, more seniors living longer lives has also added to our population. Furthermore, Americans can do the world a big favor by consuming less. Americans are the biggest consumers in the world. We need to freeze and cut both population and consumption.
However, without lowering population, cutting back on the high consumption can't do the job. Looking at the Ecological Footprint we see that the production and consumption of goods and services depends entirely on arable soils, forests, croplands, pasture lands, fishing grounds, clean waters and air, the atmosphere, ozone layer, climate, fossil fuels, and minerals - to perform the ecological services and provide the materials and energy and waste sinks that sustain civilization.
Those who see Affluence or consumption as the key use the Ecological Footprint as a yardstick for lowering their Impact, such as: Americans can lower their footprints by trimming fat - but they aren't going to give up too much. They may be willing to go to the leaner Japanese and Western Europeans lifestyles, but cutting back to how Mexicans or Nigerians or Bangladeshis live, is not an option that Americans will consider. We can bring our per person footprint down, but not nearly enough for generous sustainability, which includes creating societies that leave sufficient natural resources for future human generations to live good lives; and sharing the landscape generously with nonhuman beings.
Environmentalists who think we can double or triple U. Research from Murtaugh and Schlax at Oregon State University shows that a hypothetical American woman who switches to a more fuel-efficient car, drives less, recycles, installs more efficient light bulbs, and replaces her refrigerator and windows with energy-saving models, would increase her carbon legacy by 40 times if she has two children. We can't lower Impact only by lowering Affluence. And Americans have the biggest Affluence footprint per person of any people in the world.
Any population growth in the United States, then, is growth of these big Affluence footprints, making U. The world cannot afford more Americans. The author has more on this in his book, Man Swarm. We have a large illegal immigration problem here in the U. Most of the illegals are nice people, but the tremendous drug traffic that comes across our borders causes all sorts of problems. The problem would be alleviated if the U. We cannot possibly accomodate all of the world's excess.
We already import more food than we export. The same is true for many other natural resources. Our water supply in many parts is insufficient. Many people have started moving to Arizona, including immigrants, and that state is mostly desert, very water poor. The Colorado river supplies most of its water, and that river often runs dry before it comes to Mexico, forcing Mexicans to move North.
Every person new to the U. For example, getting to a steady job in the Southwest, where most immigrants go, almost always requires owning a car and driving miles to the job. This is one of the several reasons that U. Many times more are turned down than are accepted. People who make only 2 dollars a day 2 billion people cannot afford it. Feeling the way I do about immigration, I wish there was a better solution, like helping the people in other countries become less poor, but I am afraid what needs to be done, given our limited resources, and nature will force us into it, is for the people living in developed countries to tighten their belts more and more, to live more like people living in Bangladesh, or at least people in Mexico, who are better off than people in Banglades.
I do not associate with most immigration reduction organizations because so many of them have racist people. NumbersUSA, however, is the best, the least bigoted. But they make the mistake of failing to sufficiently marketing their position to others, and they make no attempt to address family planning and sex education that we need here in the U. The Democrats' two most urgent policy priorities are - reducing CO2 emissions and immigration reform that includes amnesty for 12 million illegal immigrants.
Enactment of the latter may prove to be the key obstacle to achieving the former. The economic and national security implications of open borders have been examined in depth. Less study, however, has been devoted to the possible environmental impact of immigration as millions of people from developing countries settle down in, or are encouraged to move to, the world's largest energy-consuming country. This liberal conundrum is illustrated by the events in the Gulf of Mexico, since a demand for fuel sparked the recent chain of events.
Population growth is the primary cause of heavier traffic, urban sprawl, further depletion of natural resources and increased CO2 emissions. Census Bureau estimates that the population, more than million Americans today, will grow to million as early as and million by Studies show that recent immigrants' consumption patterns, including energy use, quickly resemble those of native-born Americans. On average, immigrants increase their emissions fourfold after coming to the United States. That's million tons more than they would have produced had they remained in their home countries.
The New York Times is publishing a series of articles on the impact immigrants are having on American institutions, with the first article focusing on educating new immigrants. It appears The New York Times is attempting to separate the population issue from US immigration and make them into two unrelated issues.
Any discussion of immigration into the US already the world's third most populous nation, is incomplete without addressing its impact on domestic population growth and sustainability. On average, over 1 million foreign born people are granted permanent residence status each year. By adding million people, the US is set to add into its borders the equivalent of all the current citizens of Mexico and Canada combined by This will result in:.
Wages for lower-skilled, less-educated Americans plummeting as excess service labor swamps the market. Representative democracy weakening as each elected official serves a drastically inflated constituency.
If Congress were to set immigration policy to allow for , people to be invited into the nation per year US population would be 80 million less than is it currently projected to be at mid-century. Up to now the US has been a rich nation, but the strain on its resources and that on other countries it takes from is beginning to show. Its footprint is far larger than the country's size itself.
Population growth in Asia averages 1. Australia should have a much lower growth rate, but our annual population growth had risen to 1. According to Bureau of Statistics figures, it is now 1. At this rate, our population will reach 42 million by This is far above any estimate of the population Australia could hope to feed. This is based on the assumption we are heading for 28 million people in Australia by , rather than 42 million.
Some claim Australia is a big country, yet the geographer George Seddon has remarked Australia is "a small country with big distances". Our agricultural areas are not so large, or fertile, as population boosters pretend.
The human as well as the natural environment deteriorates as population grows. The reaction to any suggestion that population growth, and immigration, should be reduced was to accuse the critic of "racism". Yet most immigrants think immigration is too high. Figures show that births each year in Australia are twice the number of deaths. Australia's safe carrying capacity in the long term may be as low as 8 to 12 million people. Over the years, Australians have been promised a series of points at which population growth would supposedly be capped: Bob Hawke spoke of 25 million, which might be the limit set by water resources.
The minister for immigration, spoke of our population naturally peaking at some 23 million. Our current trajectory is to break million by Population increase suits governments wanting to please the business community now. There is still a way out and it is naive to think population growth can be slowed. In the past two years, most politicians have ceased being in denial about climate change, greenhouse emissions, limits to water, and peak oil.
Our population growth is out of control. This amount is three times what it was a decade ago and is greater than three times larger than total global aid budgets. Now people are thinking that migration and the money it generates might be a realistic alternative to just doling out aid. If remittances at the level recorded by the World Bank were a single economy, it would be the 22nd largest in the world, bigger than Iran or Argentina. Dilip Ratha of the World Bank said that billions more in remittances were not being recorded as many people were continuing to bypass the banks and big money transfer companies that are relied on for data.
The Philippines, Bangladesh, Senegal, and other countries have set up initiatives or even government ministries to manage cash sent from overseas. Rwanda has called on Rwandans living abroad to contribute to a new "solidarity fund", in an attempt to lessen its reliance on aid. For Bangladesh, Guatemala, Mexico and Senegal - remittances from workers abroad are larger than aid and foreign investment combined.
Globally, there are more than million migrants; if they lived in one country, it would be the fifth most populous, trailing only China, India, America and Indonesia. But the biggest complaint from migrants is the cut taken by banks and wire transfer firms. Migrants have their problems. Some have to leave their children with the grandparents in order to work abroad.
UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, said "As budgets tighten, we are seeing austerity measures that discriminate against migrant workers, xenophobic rhetoric that encourages violence against irregular migrants, and proposed immigration laws that allow the police to profile migrants with impunity.
There is no longer an immigration crisis. Illegal immigration is shrinking, and will likely never return to the peak levels of Also, immigrants who arrived in the s and settled here are assimilating in remarkable and unexpected ways. We must now shift from an emphasis on keeping newcomers out, to an an emphasis on encouraging migrants and their children to integrate into our social fabric. Restrictionists, including those driving much of the debate on the Republican primary trail, still talk as if nothing has changed, even though the total number of immigrants, legal and illegal, arriving in the s grew at half the rate of the s, according to the Census Bureau.
There has been an effective disappearance of illegal border crossers from Mexico, with some experts estimating the net number of new Mexicans settling in the United States at zero. Illegal immigrants from other parts of the globe have similarly dwindled in numbers.
Mexico's birthrate has plunged from 6. With a shrinking pool of young adults to meet Mexico's future labor needs, there will be less competition for jobs at home. As far as assimilation, recent studies show that immigrant parents and children, especially Latinos, are making extraordinary strides in assimilating. They will be buying their homes from the 78 million native-born baby boomers looking to downsize as their children grow up and leave home, helping to shore up future housing prices.
Immigrants and their children are crucial to America's future economic growth: The billions of dollars spent on border enforcement should be gradually redirected to replenishing and boosting the education budget, particularly the Pell grant program for low-income students.
The Departments of Labor, Commerce and Education need to help immigrants and their children graduate from high school and college, learn English proficiency, and help in developing migrants' job skills to better compete in an increasingly information- and knowledge-based economy.
More than 1 million legal immigrants and temporary workers a year to come to America and take jobs despite the country's highest unemployment levels since the Great Depression. More legal immigrants settle in California than any other state in the country. Additionally, the Los Angeles metropolitan area is second only to New York in highest number of legal immigrants settled annually.
It's coming out of your paycheck in the form of unemployment benefits for our fellow Californians," commented Marilyn DeYoung, Chairwoman of Californians for Population Stabilization. Blame our country's leaders Recent studies by the Pew Hispanic Center and Northeastern University of Boston indicate that African Americans, Hispanic Americans and new immigrants have been disproportionately affected by the bad economy, with unemployment rates twice, even three times unemployment rates of the general population.
President Obama seems oblivious to the plight of the unemployed and the disappearing middle class. And what will happen to us when all these bailouts result in rampaging inflation? Or when we slide down the Peak Oil cliff?
Rick Perry has pointed to increased employment in Texas during the current economic downturn as one of his main accomplishments. Of this, , jobs went to immigrants legal and illegal who arrived in the United States in or later. This decline is very similar to the decline for natives in the United States as a whole and is an indication that the situation for native-born workers in Texas is very similar to the overall situation in the country despite the state's job growth.
More of the report can be found by clicking on the headline in the link. Less-educated, younger, and minority American workers face the worst job market in decades. A report from the Center for Immigration Studies examines their employment situation in the second quarters of both before the recession and Younger and less-educated workers are the most likely to be in competition with immigrants.
The report finds that:. During the second quarter of , in the occupations employing the most young and less-educated U. But even in the second quarter of , before the recession, it was But even before the recession in it was 9. It was still Using the broader measure of unemployment it is an astonishing The U-6 measure of unemployment for all workers who lack a high school education or have only a high school education and are young 18 to 29 or are teenagers , 6.
That is, they were not working, nor were they looking for work, even using the U-6 measure of unemployment. This analysis does not support the assertions that there are not enough Americans workers to do jobs that require relatively little education, such as construction labor, cleaning and maintenance, food service and preparation, delivery, and light manufacturing.
Unemployment is extremely high among the least-educated Americans who often do these kinds of jobs. Thus the argument for amnesty and increased future immigration on this basis is therefore not valid. The nation's migration south and west is slowing, thanks to a housing crisis. Most southern and western states aren't growing as fast as they were at the start of the decade.
The development could impact the political map. Southern and western states will still take congressional seats away from those in the Northeast and Midwest. Florida could gain two House seats and Texas four. But some seats could stay put, and California could be in danger of losing a seat for the first time. People have stopped moving - you need to know that moving and getting a new mortgage is going to pay off. Utah was the fastest growing state with the population climbinmg by 2.
Nevada was ranked eighth, after 23 years of ranking in the top four each year. Nevada was listed as the fastest growing state a year ago when the estimates were released. But adjustments to the numbers, released Monday, show that Utah was the fastest growing state in and Nevada was ranked fourth.
Michigan and Rhode Island lost population from to , but growth rates fell in many states. Foreign immigration has slowed since the start of the decade and fewer people are moving around within the nation's borders. Florida has attracted more people from other states than any other state. However, from to , more people left Florida for other states than moved in, a loss of nearly 9, people. The state gained population from births and foreign immigration, but growth was slower.
From to , California had the biggest net loss of people moving to other states, more than , people. The population shifts will be felt following the census, when the nation apportions the seats in the House of Representatives. Texas stands to be the biggest winner, picking up four seats, while Ohio could be the loser, giving up two seats. Florida could add one or two seats. As many as 13 states could gain or lose seats, depending on population trends.
The American people are against illegal immigration. The polls show that the vast number of Americans still believe that ours is a nation of laws and expect everyon,e especially the newcomers to live by them. One of the biggest consequences of the failure to resolve the immigration issue is that it is starting to be addressed by the states and local government. Many governing bodies are moving forward with measures aimed at making it more uncomfortable for them. We are seeing many states pass measures that restrict access to state services to only those who are citizens.
Governors are telling ICE that, state and local law-enforcement agencies are going to start to enforce civil immigration laws. County leaders are finding ways to limit access to education. In some towns, laws restricting the number of people who can live in a residence or the renting or selling of property to illegals is already on the books. We will soon hold employers more accountable for knowingly hiring illegal workers.
The logic is that illegals will go elsewhere if there are no government subsidies and no "welcome" mat. The actions to restrict drivers' licenses or grant in-state tuition to state colleges and universities for illegals created volatile arguments. Those pushing such measures were accused of acting anti-American.
If our Senators and Congressmen would summon political courage and get beyond all of the special interest lobbyists in Washington, D. Our task is to stand and fight. Conflicts many communities face in making sure immigrants understand the importance of getting children immunized, getting pre-natal care, and are overall healthy. Along the nation's southern border we are looking at Third-World type problems. The State has passed a new law with a two-strike penalty: A business knowingly employing an illegal immigrant gets its business license suspended temporarily and a second offense means permanent revocation.
Arizona is forcing companies to use a federal ID-verification system that was put in place by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of but which has been ignored. Not all is perfect with the new law which lacks protection for critical infrastructure. It is time to act now to get population under control before it creates a nightmarish future for us all. We face a bleak transportation future if today's legislators continue to balk at making the decisions today that will accommodate the additional 70 to 80 million people and their attendant problems.
Over the coming decades we expect New York City will add nearly a million more people. This should bring benefits to our economy, it could also overwhelm the infrastructure and transportation systems that support our city. Our streets are too congested and our aging mass transit system is in need of significant upgrades. These problems will only get worse as our population swells. It's a frightening fact that private interests can control the actions of the Congress and whether the laws of our land are carried out or ignored.
If we allow this tragic farce to go on, can we honestly continue to call our country a democracy? Congress and President Reagan granted amnesty to three million illegal aliens in ; the current President Bush wants to legalize another 12 million now, which sends a signal to other immigrants who want to slip into America that 20 years from now whoever is president will perhaps grant amnesty to 48 million illegal immigrants.
I believe the place to start is to enforce current laws which penalize employers of illegal immigrants - or - penalize employers who pay less than minimum wage. I do not agree with denying either health care or education to illegal immigrants.
If they are here, we do not need a 2nd class citizenry. And, women who can't get health care or education have higher birth rates. If we discourage illegal employment, illegals will stop coming. If the price of goods rise because of this, then Americans will be more likely to realize the true cost of living their high life style.
Many Bulgarians wonder whether membership of the EU will revitalize the economy. It is a question that worries other European nations, who have put restrictions on Bulgarian and Romanian workers. Many went to Western Europe on three-month tourist visas and stayed on to work clandestinely. Most of the migrants are doing the low-qualified jobs that wealthy Europeans do not want.
The Bulgarian Academy of Science estimates that more than one million people have sought work abroad since Between and the population slumped by 1. The country's impoverished gypsy population has the highest natality and mortality rates in Bulgaria.
Parliament approved this year a plan to encourage births. Germany became the latest EU nation to restrict the number of Bulgarian and Romanian workers. Sweden and Finland are the only members of the pre EU who will not restrict Bulgarian laborers. When rich people become richer on the backs of immigrants, and then spend their wealth on overconsumption, it is a recipe for disaster. Can it be said, in a like manner, that the proposed Jackson Hill Golf Course may be causing future residents to undergo a quality of life sacrifice?
This development proposes a daily water allotment of gallons per equivalent dwelling unit. Testimony given by Peter A. Rogers, chief of the office of drinking water for the California Department of Health Services given before the drought conference sponsored by the State Water Resources Control Board held in Sacramento on Jan.
Rogers stated that the "average household in California utilizes anywhere from to perhaps gallons a day. The Amador Water Agency, for its part, state the average household would typically use gallons per day in the Amador Water System.
The above scenario is typical of the ongoing struggle now occurring in California to find water for more development. Those who try to plan our future are caught up in conflicting spheres of influence that become so entwined as to make progress toward a specific goal all but impossible.
Basic facts such as the depletion of natural resources, like oil and water, on going drought and population growth exacerbated by immigration, legal and illegal are purposely ignored.
If these items are addressed and corrective measures undertaken, it would mean sacrifices ah yes, a measure of love and who wants to sacrifice? The draw down of the nation's oil supply was accurately forecasted by Dr. King Hubbert, a retired geophysicist from the U.
Geological Survey, a world authority on the estimation of energy resources and on the prediction of their patterns of discovery and depletion.
On March 7, , Dr. Hubbert addressing a conference in San Antonio, Texas of a large group of petroleum engineers and geologist said, "According to the best currently available information the production of petroleum and natural gas for both the United States and for Texas, the peaks of production can be expected to occur between and Recognizing that one of the problems facing California, if not the United States, was a growing awareness that immigration, legal and illegal was impacting the United States such as a draw down of water, the Amador County Board of Supervisors passed resolution on Aug.
The resolution was in support to limit immigration into the United States. Of interest are two parts of the preamble that read: Whereas, California's population growth continues to contribute to environmental degradation and pollution: And whereas, California's population growth has already outstripped the state's finite water supply.
Recently Congressman Dan Lungren held a town hall meeting in Jackson. At this public gathering, the Congressman was apprised that not only Amador County had adopted an immigration reform resolution but also Alpine, Glenn and Placer counties. All four resolutions called for a reduction of legal immigration into the United States to , people a year.
In short order he was told more people in the U. The Congressman's lack of enthusiasm over these praiseworthy county resolutions in support of limited immigration into the United States was disturbing.
Also equally disturbing is to read about the lack of safeguards in water planning as it relates to drought. If and when drought years return, will rationing be implemented only more-so because there are more on-line water consumers? California had about 27 million residents when Californians for Population Stabilization CAPS was formed in to raise alarms about the impacts of continued population growth.
California now has about 38 million residents. If California continues to grow, it faces environmental degradation. Many of the problems facing California today have one root cause: As California's population grows by a half-million or more each year, virtually all of that growth stems from immigration, legal and illegal.
Population growth, creates the demand for more housing, more water, more schools, more highways - more of everything and that puts pressure on the environment. Overpopulation driven by unsustainable levels of immigration is bringing on more traffic congestion, escalating energy prices, overcrowding of our beaches, parks and recreational areas, and increasing demands on our limited water supply.
That said, while the low- or no-growth policies might lessen the environmental issues, they would also create new and difficult economic and social problems.
Shortages of trained workers are looming in California. Low-growth countries such as Japan are already feeling that pinch. Without ever-expanding, tax-generating construction, employment and retail sales, state and local governments would be compelled to raise taxes on an aging population with fixed incomes.
Changes of political policy often produce unintended consequences. Who will take care of them? It is an insane pyramid scheme to keep growing the population to take care of the aged. Regarding immigration contributing to growth, most of California's growth is due to births, many of which are unintended and can be prevented - regardless of whether or not the parents are native born. There are many legislative measures that affect California's fertility. Let us work on them!!! Paul Ehrlich's Population Bomb in , predicting congestion and resource depletion, motivated a generation in their child-bearing years to address exponential population growth.
From about - , U. If the average number of children, per couple, were 2. Fertility reductions lead to an "aging population. In , every pensioner in the United States was supported by 5. The mid-range projection for reveals only 2. By reducing the number of births in the s, each retiree in will impose almost twice the load upon each worker.
Our options are to postpone the retirement age or we can increase the population with more workers. By a retirement age of In contrast, between and , an additional million immigrants 11 million per year would be required to maintain the ratio if the retirement age is to remain constant at This is ten times the current immigration.
The United States would have to become a nation of a billion and as populous as China and India for the baby boomers to claim the same retirement age and dependency ratio as their parents. Our growing numbers lulls us into a Ponzi scheme. Each succeeding generation strives to sustain itself on the shoulders of ever-burgeoning recruits lodged in the queue behind it. Will Americans be willing to roll up their collective sleeves and postpone their retirement age?
Will they allow the U. Or will they insist on retiring at 65 and lay the groundwork for the U. Sixty-five was established by German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck when the world's first social security system was created in the 's, when life expectancy was 45 years. Today's 65 year-old retiree can expect decades of social security support. Part of the problem, not mentioned, is that we live so dang long! And require so much health care to ease us through the last years of our life!
I can say this at age Going back to work would be very difficult for me. Census Bureau show that 1. Growing numbers of Americans are being displaced by lower cost immigrant workers.
Many businesses take advantage of illegal and cheap foreign labor as a way of reducing costs and increasing profits. Unemployment rates in the U.
Nationally, some estimates for the number of American workers displaced by immigration each year are as high as two million. For over 30 years, immigration has served as the largest contributor to the increase in U. The United States is now the third most populous nation in the entire world and grows at a rate of more than twice that of China. The growth rate of the United States is surpassed only by India and Nigeria. At current levels, 1. Stabilizing the size of U. This goal can be reached only by curtailing large-scale immigration and ending the policies of chain-migration.
Due to rampant population growth, the United States has experienced accelerated ground water degradation, pollution, the destruction of forests, national parks and natural habitats, along with the over-consumption of precious natural resources.
I agree that we need to reduce our population growth, but many of U. Perhaps Americans are overpriced. Much has been written about the growth in the worlds population and the growth in resource usage and global pollution.
They also speak of the potential for growth in world poverty through the inequality of global wealth, hunger and lack of basic health care. The inability of present governments to control the above trends and learn lessons speaks of significant future issues unable to be tackled by the same government mechanisms. The population growth trend is a vast number of people.
These people need governments that are able to tackle the opportunities and threats. The numbers speak of the urgency to climb out of poverty and provide for their families, to ensure education and health care and to avoid the diseases and wars that will ravage the crowded populations.
By there will be a third more population in the world than today. The developed world will reach for an even higher standard of living. This will mean a tremendous pressure on resources and on the resulting pollution. Pollution from China and India will surpass those the developed world where recycling and an increasing reliance on technology will gain ground.
As the worlds population increases, so will the demand for energy and disposable goods also the raw resources to produce the goods. There will be a greater national control of resources throughout the developing world. This will fuel the economies of these areas and help increase the sustainability of their economic growth, adding to increases in population.
The population of the developing world will increase at a faster rate than in the developed world. We are experiencing today the beginnings of what will be by a massive shift in the worlds population.
The lure of the developed world to the population of the underdeveloped world is increasing. This WILL be a massive shift and will be fuelled by the unequal rise in the standard of living. It will cause instability in those areas in receipt of a massive influx of new people. Some areas of the developing world will continue to observe a loss of trained doctors and teachers and engineers, among others, lured to the developed world by more money and an increase in the standard of living.
People cannot be blamed for wanting to survive. People cannot be blamed for wanting to feed their children. Encouraged by lax national border controls, there will be a massive global cross border shift of population. With so many newcomers entering into a range of countries, the problems within these recipient countries can be exaggerated to breaking point. Measures by security forces to counter extremism and organized crime will increase in intensity.
Arguments against unchecked immigration will breed racism. This will polarize some societies with all the risks this entails. The more the host countries seek to accommodate the new wave of migrants, the greater the resentment and backlash from the resident population. This will involve deepening political divisions based on lessening resources, increasing crime, increasing extremism, increasing surveillance.
The argument will be sensationalized to revolve around racism. What it will be about is a balanced fairness. What it will be about is preserving societies from being drained of resources, or from being swamped, by undesirables fleeing justice in their own home lands. All economies will be fragile in the face of global trends or terrorist attacks.
The pressure on resources will become increasingly difficult to manage. The inequalities of global wealth will be evident. This will happen because of the level of influx. This will mean either an increasing reliance on charity or an increasing tax burden to pay for the influx of migrants.
Over the ages, many people have come to the developed world to build a better life, to be a part of something they perceived to be good and worthwhile. They wanted to add to society and help to create a better society in which their families could flourish.
The developed world has been built on integration and fairness and opportunity for all. For the developed world there will be positives from immigration. It will carry essential skills and labour to fuel the growth in economies. Yet there will be an uncontrolled human flood across borders bringing a mass of people, some of whom will have no thought to integrate, Against this governments, crippled by political correctness and the inability to act decisively will fail to grapple the issue.
Population pressure and economic mismanagement will cause the migration to continue and to gain strength. Due to increasing population the tension will increase resulting in states within states with different loyalties and aspirations within free societies with free speech, education and opportunity. In the midst of this freedom will be voices of condemnation and hate.
In a number of countries, due to a lack of strategic understanding, they will fail to protect and preserve the societies. A number of these governments from less "free" societies will blame others for their own mismanagement.
In some countries the governments will gain stability and sustainable growth through a strategic understanding of the global trends and a harnessing of the technical and energy production. A small minority will be criminals seeking refuge in a new country which may be easy pickings for them. This will be the case because successive governments hampered by political correctness will talk tough on the issue of cross border information exchange and controls but will do little of practical importance.
This small minority will include people who hate western society and whose loyalties lay elsewhere. This will be aided by the growth of internet based communities encouraging destruction, oppression and the politics of fear for the sake of individuals clutching on to power. This minority will be one of the greatest internal dangers of the developed world. Opportunity within the developing world should not be perceived as a threat to the commercial interests of the developed world.
Helping the developing world achieve a greater level of opportunity will be breaking a number of unspoken commercial rules. As the global population increases, this will result in a major shift in population as the population rise outstrips the rise in opportunity within the developing world.
Migration will increase beyond previously levels and result in a resource drain from the developing world and too great a population pressure within the developed world. Many countries attempt to control illegal immigration but too few resources and willingness to make difficult decisions leaves systems open to abuse.
I see much less threat from immigration than I do from global warming, worldwide resource depletion, especially oil and water, conflicts over resources i. By Mark Powell The organized environmental movement has been almost totally ineffective at protecting the environment since the mid s. This is demonstrated by the failure to energize the public to deal with global warming. But this is the tip of the iceberg. Other environmental crises include loss of species diversity, loss of natural resources.
The list goes on. With the exception of efforts to protect the stratospheric ozone layer, the threatening global trends continue. The worst problem may be the sprawl and suburbanization, which affects nearly every town in Vermont. Many factors have contributed to our environmental problems including the myth that we must have continued growth, a media that has not paid much attention to the environment, and our personal consumption patterns.
Yet, environmental organizations hold a good deal of the responsibility. The environmental movement has gone from a citizen-based activist movement to an organizational movement run on paid staff.
It has resulted in less passion, less citizen involvement, less creativity, and less risk taking. The movement relies on paid lobbyists and the members are limited to signing petitions after receiving an email alert.
With their paid staffs and large budgets, environmental organizations have become businesses, with their business interests taking precedence over their mission. Each environmental organization works with its own limited agenda. The organized environmental movement lacks leaders who are willing to be outspoken and radical. We need to call attention to issues, so that the rest of the movement does not seem so extreme.
Most importantly, environmental organizations have not mentioned population growth on their websites or in their literature as a major cause of our environmental problems. When the environmental movement began in the s and s concern for the environment and population growth were very closely interconnected. Many of the nation's largest environmental groups, considered "population control" as the major plank of their platform.
In when one said, "We feel you don't have a conservation policy unless you have a population policy. A large coalition of environmental groups in endorsed a resolution stating that, "population growth is directly involved in the pollution and degradation of our environment.
The well-being of individuals, the stability of society and our very survival are threatened. Environmental organizations have focused almost entirely on technology, be it driving more fuel efficient cars or encouraging "smart growth. National environmental organizations acknowledge put almost no resources into addressing this concern. In Vermont, only two of 25 environmental organizations have publicly acknowledged that population growth is a contributor to our environmental problems.
Why is it that well-respected environmentalists can make movies, and write and sing about population growth but our environmental organizations seem tongue-tied when it comes to discussing it? Why have environmental organizations abandoned dealing with population growth?
Fertility rates dropped in the s to 1. Abortion, contraception, and women's issues entered into politics, and these became very divisive and a focus of attention. Environmental leaders do not want, to be seen as racist, although wanting to protect the environment has nothing to do with racism. Environmental organizations promote "sustainability" but a population of million growing by approximately four million a year is not sustainable. A truly long-term sustainable population without cheap oil is probably to million.
The larger the U. The original founders of the modern environmental movement had it right. Population growth is a major cause of our environmental degradation. It is long past the time when action on population growth should be reestablished as a high priority by environmental organizations if they really want to protect our environment.
Population is a sensitive issue but it really is time that environmental leaders stopped worrying about causing 'offence' to people or about a backlash from public opinion, took their courage in their hands and began alerting everyone to the need to rein back human numbers, humanely and democratically, for the sake of the planet. This is probably the most important article I have worked on since I began summarizing articles.
For this reason it is much longer than I would wish but almost every word is vitally important. It should be headlines on all the TV news stations and in every newspaper. Just as US women limited their family size to what is economical, we as a country should limit our size to what is sustainable.
On the other hand, if environmental organizations do not feel it is worth it to tackle a very difficult subject like immigration sometimes it poisons international family planning efforts , then we should not be faulting those organizations.
But let's not call it population control anymore. There is no control to voluntary family planning. A survey of 1, voters nationally, conducted Sep. A Memoir on your Kindle in under a minute! When my mom researched her family tree, she was amazed at how many women had children late in life.
Right from when they got married at 15 or 16 years old the research went back to AD, when early marriage was normal , until right when the menopause hit at 48 years old, or even 50 years old. Both my grandmothers had their last child at 43 years old and 46 years old respectively Just when we had given up, I got pregnant with our son Benjamin. We hadn't even tried to get pregnant that month and yet, there it was I was just shy of turning 42 years old.
Sadly, we lost our precious son to premature birth at 22 weeks. However, God blessed us with another child just five short months later. I gave birth, at 43 years old, in Dec. We were TTC [trying to conceive] for about 18 months before I got pregnant. I turned 43 years old a few weeks afterwards. I am now at 20 weeks pregnant now, so pretty hopeful for this, our first baby! They are well into their forties. I would say she is at least 44 years old.
And that was 36 years ago. AND he's got a brother 15 months younger than him. AND his Dad was 60 years old when my husband was conceived!!
A good sense of timing? A nice meal and some amorous music? There are times when all the romance and luck just simply will not do. In those times, what you need is a specimen pot, a heap of drugs, so many ultra-sound scans that your wife or partner begins to glow in the dark and an unfeasibly large amount of tea. Providing a rare yet enlightening male perspective on the world of IVF, Test tubes and testosterone is one man's experience of infertility and the IVF journey he embarked on with his wife in order to start a family.
Told with humor, wit, and insight, this book sheds light on issues that can be hard to discuss even with the closest of friends or relatives, making it a valuable book for anyone contemplating or going through IVF. Hey, I have to tell you this! My grandmother had my mother when she was 46 years old!! Except I know it to be true because it happened to my grandmother. She's 45 years old. I don't think it's over for the something's, just because of their age.
She said no, just timed sex. Apparently, her mom had eight kids, one at 40 years old and another at 43 years old. So she had fertility in her family, but still, I found her inspirational. No tests, no idea what her FSH [Follicle-stimulating hormone] is and no problems.
She just tried and got pregnant and had no problems. I think it's possible for all of us, we just might have to wait and go through more than some people. She already into menopausal symptoms and is 45 years old. She has just gotten pregnant!

I just found I am pregnant again, and I am so thrilled.
She thinks she will probably have a few more babies, all natural conceptions. But I did have a harder time conceiving this baby.
I'll be 45 years old when I give birth, due October 28th. I have had such an easy pregnancy so far. He was a beautiful boy named Daniel Jacob. Girl Walks into a Bar After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose? Resigned to childlessness but still hoping for romance, Dratch was out for drinks with a friend when she met John. Handsome and funny, after only six months of dating long-distance, he became the inadvertent father of her wholly unplanned, undreamed-of child, and moved to New York to be a dad.
With riotous humor, Dratch recounts breaking the news to her bewildered parents, the awe of her single friends, and the awkwardness of a baby-care class where the instructor kept tossing out the f-word. Filled with great behind-the-scenes anecdotes from Dratch's time on SNL, Girl Walks into a Bar is a refreshing version of the happily ever after story that proves female comics - like best sellers Tina Fey and Chelsea Handler - are truly having their moment.
Start reading Girl Walks into a Bar A woman I know from another board just got her BFP [big fat positive - pregnancy test] from a minimum stimulation IVF [in vitro fertilization] cycle with Dr. Zhang the same guy I just starting seeing myself. This will be her first child!!! She is 44 years old, and will be 45 years old in a couple of months.
Her FSH [follicle stimulating hormone] was 6. She has been trying naturally for a long time. I am so excited I can barely stand it I am 43 years old, I will be 44 years old when I have this baby. I already have three kids - 24, 22, and eight years old. This was NOT at all planned. Some women get pregnant easily in their mids. Sorry, but it is just the truth. Do you think my aunt told a lie when she had her baby at 45 years old? Do you think she just pushed a big pillow under her clothing, and lied to everyone about being pregnant?
No, it was for real. Overcoming infertility and recurrent loss in your late 30s and 40s naturally by Sandy Robertson -- After years of infertility and failed fertility treatments, Sandy Robertson developed an all-natural pregnancy protocol leading to the birth of her daughter at the age of In this new expanded edition, she shares her research including over references. She explains how she: Yes, of course, it is possible there might be a few who might have stretched the truth a bit in their post, or mis-remembered the person's age.
But still, it is hard to believe nearly 3, people are all telling a lie, or making up a story. Sure, maybe one or two of them made it up. But such a small number is irrelevant. My grandmother had 3 children in her 40s, and I grew up not believing it to be unusual at all for a woman over 40 years old to get pregnant. I went the fertility specialist route for a bit, but we only did it half-heartedly because I felt for sure there was no way I would ever get pregnant That I was too old, my eggs were no good, etc.
But I was wrong. I can't say I was trying at all, but I guess that's how it happens sometimes! I just had my last ultrasound, and the baby is perfect in every way Her other three children had been born over nine years prior. She said she conceived with no problem within six months of trying. Making idle conversation, I found out she got pregnant naturally the first month she tried to get pregnant at 43 years old. Prior to that, she had a booming career and had always been on birth control.
Also, it was interesting to find out she is an MD [medical doctor]. Ironically, her husband thought he was infertile, because tests in his previous marriage had determined his very low sperm count was responsible for their infertility. This was his first child. She said this goes to show you should never quit trying What works for one couple may not work for another couple. My HCG [Human chorionic gonadotropin] blood count is elevated, and I have missed my period for the last two months.
If so rare, so impossible, such a miracle, why can I find so many stories? Offering inspiration, hope, comfort to those trying to conceive over The world's nations will gather at a UN conference in South Korea on Monday to review and approve a page bombshell -- distilled from more than 6, scientific studies -- laying out narrowing. There is, of course, a legitimate argument for some limitation upon immigration. We no longer need settlers for virgin lands, and our economy is expanding more slowly than in the nineteenth and early twentieth century.
