More Africans in extreme poverty than in 1990: UN – Yahoo News.

United Nations (United States) (AFP) – More sub-Saharan Africans are living in extreme poverty now than in 1990, said a major United Nations report Monday, warning the region will miss most of its development goals.

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), set in 2000, strive to halve extreme poverty and hunger in the world by 2015.

They also promote and track progress in tackling issues such as AIDS, maternal and childhood mortality, access to clean water, gender equality and education.

Many targets are within reach by the end of 2015, according to the United Nations’ annual MDG progress report: if current trends continue, targets on malaria, tuberculosis and access to HIV treatment will be surpassed, while the hunger target also looks to be within reach, it said.

But it found that sub-Saharan Africa is lagging behind the rest of the world in its progress, with population growth, conflicts and a decrease in international aid making the timely completion of many goals unlikely…

As I was leaving the Sugar Land Airport it began to lightly rain as a nearby thunder bumper let loose. As it was already the afternoon the sun was low enough to create this wonderful rainbow over the airport.

Today’s flying took me to New Orleans Lakefront Airport. After the passengers deplaned I was able to catch this awesome sunset before departing to Austin, Texas.

The Aerial Horizon

Jackson Hole and Blacktail ButteTurbulent skies above cloud covered mountains make us think of inhospitable terrain below…until the clouds part to reveal an idyllic pastoral scene. Jackson Hole, Wyoming appears nestled between the dramatic jags of mountain ridges and provides a peaceful sanctuary amid fields, lakes and streams. Our eyes immediately are drawn to the Jackson Hole Airport at the base of the Grand Tetons, the focal point of the valley. This would be a perfect place to land…and spend a lifetime.

BOSTON (CBS) – Jon Salisbury played sports for years.

?I played soccer in high school for four years. I ran track for four years,? Jon said. ?And I played soccer in college for three years.?

The last injury he thought he’d suffer was one to his teeth.

?I’m 25. I’ve had two root canals already,? Jon said.

Root canals at such a young age? From playing sports? Well, not from the sports per se. But it’s what young athletes are drinking while playing sports that is doing the damage.

?On any given day, I’d drink at least half a gallon of Gatorade to prepare for it, if not more, and that didn’t include if I had an energy drink,? admits Jon.
