Some news you may have missed

Here are a few news items you may have missed that I collected some weeks ago:
  • The birth fertility rate in 2014 in the United States of America rose slightly from 1.87 (in 2013) to 1.9, with fewer than 4,000,000,000 babies born in the USA last year. The increase gives some hope for the future, but a birth fertility rate of at least 2.1 is necessary to keep a population stable.
Most likely I saved this post as a draft with the intention to add more items to it, forgot about it, and noticed it today.

  1. Well, I guess we BOTH made a numerical error. A few too many zeroes, looks like!
