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.

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.
