As population susceptibilities are better understood, we will be in a better position than we are in today to make informed decisions about risk management.
I know this is economic jargon, but essentially, if you bring more women to the job market, you create value, it makes economic sense, and growth is improved. There are countries where it’s almost a no-brainer: Korea, Japan, soon to be China, certainly Germany, Italy. Why? Because they have an aging population.
Given the relativity concept, poverty cannot be eliminated. Indeed, an economic upturn with a broad improvement in household income does not guarantee a decrease in the size of the poor population, especially when the income growth of households below the poverty line is less promising than the overall.
But as population became denser, the natural chemical and biological recycling processes became overloaded, calling for a redefinition of property rights.
The thing about youthful offenders is that no one seems to care about them. Most people don’t like adolescents – even the good ones can be snarky and unpleasant. Combine the antipathy we feel toward the average teenager with the fear inspired by youth violence, and you have a population that no one wants to deal with.
Frankly, I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.
While growing up in Scotland, which has a large Indian population, I would end up eating a lot of Indian dishes. So, it is familiar to me.
A source of embarrassment for Libyans, Gadhafi has never been a joke: disappearances, a police state, zero freedom of expression, and poverty for at least a third of the population of country tremendously wealthy thanks to oil.
Israel has been doing very well, but there are challenges the country faces, like poverty and social integration of the Orthodox, Arab, Beduin, and Ethiopian population, which will be essential for sustaining strong growth over time.

Unfortunately, in war, there are casualties, including among the civilian population.
Often, people think that individual data is the most valuable thing they can collect. But it’s not useful to know what I am doing or where I am, unless you’re particularly interested in me, which is weird. But it is very useful to know what a population of people are doing.
Low-cost, high-grade coal, oil and natural gas – the backbone of the Industrial Revolution – will be a distant memory by 2050. Much higher-cost remnants will still be available, but they will not be able to drive our growth, our population and, most critically, our food supply as before.
Although it’s the second largest country in the world, our useful area has been reduced. Our immigration policy is disgusting: We plunder southern countries by depriving them of future leaders, and we want to increase our population to support economic growth.
I grew up in a pretty small town in Texas, population 8,000, and we had a lot of open spaces.
The war was declared over – the end of major combat operations – in May 2003. Release procedures got under way immediately; reducing the population from 8,000 to just over 300, of course, requires fewer military police soldiers.
I grew up in East Los Angeles, which is the biggest population of Mexican-Americans in America. I was born and raised there.
On principle, I always support the opinion of a population who express themselves through a referendum.

The optimum population is, then, less than the maximum.
When a certain swathe of India’s population considers the country’s ancient past, it doesn’t see a country fragmented into kingdoms, savaged by caste divisions, and mired in poverty; rather, what’s envisioned is a vast, unified Hindu empire stretching from Kashmir to the Indian tip at Kanyakumari.
A finite world can support only a finite population; therefore, population growth must eventually equal zero.
More than half of America’s rural counties are losing population and with it, political representation.
I meet so many that think population growth is a major problem in regard to climate change. But the number of children born per year in the world has stopped growing since 1990. The total number of children below 15 years of age in the world are now relatively stable around 2 billion.
Every year the progress of advanced capitalist society makes our population consist of more and more isolates. This is because of the infrastructure of the economy, especially electronic communications.
I think all art is, by nature, intended to motivate society for change, and the only reason change doesn’t happen is because within the target population, courage is lacking.
It is impossible to anticipate all of the misdeeds engendered by the universal conflict of human passions. They multiply at a compound rate with the growth in population and the interlacing of particular interests that cannot be directed with geometrical precision towards the public utility.
I don’t want to be super aggressive, but I think it’s an issue that the population of America isn’t reflected accurately in a lot of movies. I’m just disappointed that there isn’t an Asian leading man or an Asian leading woman. There’s an obvious gap that should be filled.
We are fighting to pass clean-slate legislation in Pennsylvania to seal nonviolent misdemeanor records automatically after 10 years. We must provide opportunities for employment, housing, education, loans, and voting. We should not disenfranchise a third of the population.
Half the U.S. population owns barely 2 percent of its wealth, putting the United States near Rwanda and Uganda and below such nations as pre-Arab Spring Tunisia and Egypt when measured by degrees of income inequality.
I don’t see the wisdom in modern politicians that I once saw in men like Dean Acheson, David Bruce, or George Marshall. In my day, the northeastern establishment dominated foreign policy formulation, but the composition and distribution of our population is very different today.
Israel and our vicinity is an area that traditionally has little industry. The area is known for history, it’s known for religious stories, it’s known a bit for agriculture, but… neither was the Jewish population thinking about export industry, nor the Arab or Palestinian population.
America was indebted to immigration for her settlement and prosperity. That part of America which had encouraged them most had advanced most rapidly in population, agriculture and the arts.
I think the media has portrayed conservatives as these cold, heartless people who want poor people to die and let half the population starve and all this. They’ve done that so effectively because they’ve owned the narrative for so long.
We seek the right to play our part in advancing the cause of national defense and national unity. But certainly, there can be no true national unity where one-tenth of the population is denied their basic rights as American citizens.
From a conservation issue alone, you’d have to say there are too many badgers. A bigger growth in the badger population is not good for the balance of conservation anyway.
The U.S. is still in a pretty good spot, especially relative to other advanced countries. The aging of our population is not as pronounced as almost anyone else‘s.
Some calamities – the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor, 9/11 – have come like summer lightning, as bolts from the blue. The looming crisis of America’s Ponzi entitlement structure is different. Driven by the demographics of an aging population, its causes, timing and scope are known.
It is sufficient to say, what everybody knows to be true, that the Irish population is Catholic, and that the Protestants, whether of the Episcopalian or Presbyterian Church, or of both united, are a small minority of the Irish people.
Because you want to have competition to drive down the price. You want innovation. You have the ability to get people to agree that it’s worth having a public plan. You could get private insurers to cover this population, but you couldn’t without giving the population leverage in the marketplace.
If the world population continues to increase at the same rate, we will destroy the species.
We are being conditioned, as a population, to never wait, to never delay our gratification, to accept thoughtless, constant consumption as the new norm. But how we think about consumption and willpower carry enormous implications for the environment and the culture of society as a whole.
The event of the landing of these brethren upon our shores is to be, not without its beneficial effect, as well to the colored population of this country, as it promises to be to ill-fated Africa.
Those 62 million girls who are not being educated around the world impact my life in Washington, D.C., in the United States of America. Because if we aren’t empowering and providing the skills and the resources to half of our population, then we’re not realizing our full potential as a society, as mankind.
As digitalisation and the ageing population trends advance, international mobility and the development of employable skills are crucial to balance demographic gaps and surpluses as well as the deficit of skills across the world.
In Hong Kong there is agglomeration beyond my fondest imaginings. The Kowloon district claims a population density four times that of New York City.
Every nation must concern themselves with ensuring its population has sufficient and stable access to food – ours is no exception. Nor can we afford to ignore other nations’ concerns about access to food.
It’s much easier for a middle class Indian entrepreneur to start up a computer company than it is for an Indian company to build roads and transportation systems suitable for a population that is getting wealthier and demanding more basic services.
I should say many things. Mexico has been one of the losers of the 20th century. We tried many different alternatives to development and unfortunately we have 40 percent of the population poor; we have a per capita income that is extremely low.
Low levels of vitamin D in the population as a whole suggest that most people need to take a vitamin D supplement. This may be especially true for seniors, as the ability to synthesize vitamin D in the skin declines with age.

There will always be frictions when you have a foreign worker population or immigrant population in the country, and we have to manage that, and that requires good behaviour and adjustment both on the part of the foreign workers and the immigrants as well as on the part of the Singaporeans.
We are of the opinion that an important and irreversible process is taking place among the white population. Just as with the blacks, the whites, too, are currently overcoming a psychological barrier.

Latinas are the fastest growing segment of the minority population, and their perspective deserves to be represented, not denigrated.
When population shifts – brought about by fair housing laws, affirmative action and landmark school desegregation rulings – political power is challenged as well.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
It is interesting that the U.S. has this very strong proportion of the population that rejects scientific conclusions about the age of the Earth and about evolutionary relationships between species, including humans.
Europe today is the most secular region in the world. Europe is the only region in the world experiencing population decline. Wherever you turn today the more religious the community, the larger on average are their families.
Handmade things tend to be so expensive that only a small part of the population can afford them. And yet making things with hands is such an essential part of being human.
There’s so much free material on the Internet you can learn from, and some people are pure self-starters: they pick up computers and teach themselves everything. Certainly there are millions of people like that. But at the same time, I think it’s a pretty small percentage of the population.
Trump‘s campaign slogan resonates strongly with a large population of Americans. ‘Make America Great Again’ portrays a nostalgia for what America once was, and a longing desire to return to that time. Millennials unfortunately don’t know first-hand that time which Trump is talking about.
One of India’s biggest advantages is our young demographic and that we have a youthful population that is indeed our future.
All kinds of excuses have been given by governments for not implementing this recommendation like food price inflation. But the question is, do the farmers of this country, who constitute nearly half of the working population, also not need to eat?
More and more of the world’s population is gaining access to the same kind of computing power and connectivity that has transformed daily life for developed nations.
WikiLeaks is a service to the population. Assange should get an award for – presidential medal of honor.
It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now.
Part of the population of Laos lives in urban centers, Vientiane being the largest.
One of the biggest challenges for the MENA region is unemployment coupled with high population growth rates. The World Bank is committed to supporting infrastructure projects that will help with job creation across the region.
How can it be that the homosexual movement, at one or two percent of the population, gets treated with such solicitude while the Catholic population, which is over a quarter of the country, is given the back of the hand?
Rapid population growth and technological innovation, combined with our lack of understanding about how the natural systems of which we are a part work, have created a mess.
In Europe, it’s common to hear about young professionals living with their parents. With the continent‘s high rents and taxes and its population density, it makes sense.
Buckhannon, population 5,639, is a deeply conservative town and long has been. While coal is its past, oil and gas are its likely future. It’s a town where guns are sold at yard sales, where Pentecostal churches are nearly as common as restaurants, and where distrust of Hillary Clinton is visceral and deep-seated.
We need to see many more people starting businesses and becoming their own boss, but the squeezed middle exists as much within this group as in the population at large as rising costs are hitting small businesses – who after all are consumers too.

We estimate that humanitarian agencies have access to about 350,000 vulnerable people in Darfur – only about one third of the estimated total population in need.
Our great history has been that people came to Michigan because you didn’t have to have a college degree to get a good-paying job. Consequently, we have got a larger number of our population that right now are facing outsourcing, et cetera, without higher or advanced degrees.
An estimated 7 million illegal immigrants were residing in the United States in January 2000. This is double the size of the illegal immigrant population in January 1990 and constitutes 2.5 percent of the total U.S. population of just over 281 million.
You have an administration which understands America’s international responsibilities and interests, but you have a population which is anxious, tired, and doesn’t want to bear any burden and pay any price. And that’s very difficult for whoever becomes president.
Empowering innovations transform something that is complicated and expensive into something that is so much more simple and affordable that a much larger population can enjoy it.
In my view, while the single neuron is the basic anatomical and information processing-signaling unit of the brain, it is not capable of generating behaviors and, ultimately, thinking. Instead, the true functional unit of the central nervous system is a population of neurons, or neural ensembles or cell assemblies.
I don’t understand why people still behave as though making movies with female protagonists is risky, given that – hello – we do make up over 50 percent of the population, and we go to movies.
In Colombia maybe 95% of the population follow Formula One. It’s crazy.
You probably need 1/10 of the world’s population for us to continue to exist. There’s just too many damn people. You have to somehow get us from 7 billion people to… I don’t know what the magic number is, but I imagine at some point, that will happen. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’m making the cut.
Instead of expecting truck drivers and warehouse workers to rapidly retrain so they can compete with tireless, increasingly capable machines, let’s play to their human strengths and create opportunities for workers as companions and caregivers for our elders, our children, and our special-needs population.
Actually, King Abdullah, under his supervision and guidance, has established a dialogue in Saudi Arabia whereby all the population, whether Shiite or Sunnis from north, south, west or east, they can get together and exchange their views.
I am an American citizen and it is my home now. I like the U.S.A., which is not a place too many people have liked since Bush. The U.S. has a young population, and everything can change within a year.
The biggest development in reproductive biology is the birth-control pill. Nobody ever talks about it, but look at the consequences: demographics; aging populations; the sinking population of Europe, Japan; immigration. It’s incredible.

Protecting children at risk of exploitation will always be a priority, and at the other end, safeguarding an ageing population brings its own challenges.
The United States Jewish population has made many vital contributions in all areas of our society in such ways as helping to develop the cultural, scientific, political and economic life of our country.
We have access to practical, ethical and scientifically established methods of birth control. So I think that is the most ethical way to reduce our population.
I don’t believe in a biological apocalypse, but I think there is stormy biological weather ahead as the human population continues to grow.
To deal with these problems – of world population and hunger, of peace, of energy and mineral resources, of environmental pollution, of poverty – we must broaden and deepen our knowledge of nature’s laws, and we must broaden and deepen our understanding of the laws of human behavior.
We’re at a point right now in our development in this country – setting the immigration issue aside – that you can’t ignore the sheer population of us in metropolitan areas all across the country, of how significant Latino-ness is in the United States.
While the Internet is important for us, India is also necessary for the Internet with its 1.2 billion population.

New Orleans may well have been the most liberal Deep South city in 1954 because of its large Creole population, the influence of the French, and its cosmopolitan atmosphere.
It’s never a good idea to organize society in a way that depletes the energy of half the population. We discovered this with women decades ago, and now it’s time to realize it with introverts.
I’ve made a commitment that state spending in Vermont won’t grow any more than the rate of inflation plus population growth.
It’s obvious that China faces a range of demographic and economic difficulties stemming from its own population growth, and that the global community has a vested interest in avoiding the worst impacts of that growth.
When Hispanics start businesses at two times the rate of the average population, it seems to me that fewer regulations and dictates from Washington will do more to encourage start-ups, hiring, and progress up the economic ladder.
The world that you and I live in is increasingly challenged. Population growth, pollution, over-consumption, unsustainable patterns, social conflict, climate change, loss of nature… these are not good stories.
Many people think that Puerto Rico would be a Democratic state just by virtue of the inclination of the Latino population in the United States, but the reality is that I see Puerto Rico as a battleground state.
ISIL is saying to a disenfranchised population, ‘Come join us. Fight the good fight.’ I think we’re actually playing into it when they hear Trump’s rhetoric. And I think it’s dangerous and hurtful as a matter of national policy.
It is undeniable that the looming environmental crisis is partly the consequence of population growth.
When we foster an economy without hope, we guarantee that a segment of our population will be destined to know homelessness on a permanent basis, and not for the one night I voluntarily spent at a shelter.
My audience is the baby-boomers, the bulk of the population. This is also a group that is being ignored by most record companies because they’re not the Top 40 hit singles market. They forget these people still listen to music.
African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population but comprise 32 percent of patients treated for kidney failure, giving them a kidney failure rate that is 4.2 times greater than that of white Americans.
When you’re bringing in a fairly unknown candidate challenging a sitting president, the population needs a lot more information than reduced coverage provides.
We knew from theoretical models that mergers of massive, gas-rich galaxies were more frequent in the past. Now we’ve found that these mergers are responsible for producing both the nearby obscured quasar population and their distant cousins.
There has always been quite a strong black and white art tradition in Australia, with quite a large contingent of cartoonists, given the size of the population.
Black Lives Matter has no more to do with black issues than Students for a Democratic Society had to do with democracy. They are means to an end, and they use the black population as sacrifices for their goals.
It is already tough to buy a house. But if we are bringing a population the size of Newcastle upon Tyne into the country every single year, if we cannot set limits on the number of people that come and work in Britain, then simple maths says it is going to be even more difficult to get on to the housing ladder.
Most of us feel some kind of uncertainty, with the population increasing and resources decreasing. We have to face these issues.
New states were supposed to join the union when they reached a certain population, but in the late 19th century, population mattered a great deal less than partisanship.
Nearly half of the American population is eagerly anticipating the end of the world. This dewy-eyed nihilism provides absolutely no incentive to build a sustainable civilization. Many of these people are lunatics, but they are not the lunatic fringe.
One of the issues we face here in San Francisco and Silicon Valley is a sense that the people all around us are as conversant in startup and tech culture as we are. But we need to remember, and remind ourselves repeatedly, that we’re a small minority in a larger population.
CRISPR-enabled ‘gene drives‘ enable us to make changes to the germ-line of organisms permanent such that changes spread through the entire wild population, including making species extinct on demand. Unlike nuclear weapons such technologies are not complex, expensive, and able to be kept secret for a long time.
Most people still fail to comprehend the magnitude and menace of the ‘Population Monster.’
South Africa never leaves one indifferent. Its history, its population, its landscapes and cultures – all speak to the visitor, to the student, to the friend of Africa.
I support population control. I think USA should do the same.

There’s this incredibly young, dynamic, educated population in Iran that is essentially pretty pro-American.
Sixty percent of all Indians live in urban areas, but nobody‘s writing about them. They’re really an underrepresented population, and the ironic thing is very, very few of those we call Native American writers actually grew up on reservations, and yet most of their work is about reservations.
One of the unique features of China is that, notwithstanding the fact that it has a population of 1.3 billion, around 92% regard themselves as Han Chinese. This is quite different from the world’s other most populous countries, such as India, the U.S. and Indonesia, which are ethnically diverse.
I am keen to serve one-sixth of the world’s population where the miracles of science and technology would multiply manifold for betterment of mankind.
The largest newspaper in the United States is only reaching 1 percent of population. We are kind of assuming that ‘Wall Street Journal,’ ‘USA Today,’ and other newspapers are very important. Yes, they’re extremely important, but only to 1 percent of the population on a daily basis.
There must be something in the water in Minnesota because historically, despite its seemingly homogeneous population, the state has produced some of our more radical political thinkers, and its people have put their prejudices aside to vote for them.
There’s no way New Orleans will ever be the city it was. I think it will have half the population. They may create a sort of Disneyland at the French Quarter for tourists. The rest I don’t know.

As a recording engineer – someone who is deeply embroiled in the process of making records every day – you see trends and fads run through the social organization of the population of musicians in the same way that they would run through a high school.
The world is a bell curve. Classroom test scores, employee performance in a company or how many people really, really like you. No matter the population you’re studying, they always fit neatly across the standard deviations of the famous bell curve.
This is a very difficult question. If you take a look at the aging population and demographics, we are going to have a big increase in the number of health care jobs needed in the state and in the country.
A misconception that exists in the eyes of the general reading population is that authors make truckloads of money.
Women are over 50 percent of the population.

The 19th-century pure capitalist model of society was a pyramid, concentrations of enormous wealth in a small group at the top, a not very big middle-class in the middle, and an enormous percentage of the population in the bottom part of the pyramid.
By 1929, 5 percent of the population received one-third of the nation’s income. The structural weaknesses of this economy plunged the nation into the Great Depression.

Churchill is so particular. He’s as different from the rest of the population of Britain as he is from me.
As most of the population suffers through life, barely surviving, disappointed and confused day after day, hopeless, wondering what happened to their strong and beautiful country, it is in the media’s power to restore, if not some of our quality of life, at least a bit of our peace of mind.
There can be no peace in the world so long as a large proportion of the population lack the necessities of life and believe that a change of the political and economic system will make them available. World peace must be based on world plenty.

We need to feminise history because we are 50 per cent of the population, and our story is just as interesting.

There is not one single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.
So long as the most vulnerable people in our population are consigned to places that the rest of us will always shun and flee and view with fear, I am afraid that educational denial, medical and economic devastation, and aesthetic degradation will be inevitable.
The prevalence of suicide, without doubt, is a test of height in civilization; it means that the population is winding up its nervous and intellectual system to the utmost point of tension and that sometimes it snaps.
In the future, it’s going to become more and more impossible for the economy to support how expensive medical care is and the number of sick people we have. Why don’t we just get our population healthier so we don’t need medical care?
I wanted to go from seeing the individual patient to seeing the plural – the whole population as a market. You want to see the larger population, yet at the same time you need to understand the impact of decisions on individuals.
We do need an attitude of leadership in our government which demonstrates faith in major population centres outside of Perth.
Tens of thousands have been killed or wounded by the Israeli army since 1967. During 2006, the number of Palestinians killed reached 650. Since the beginning of the Israeli occupation in 1967, more than 650,000 Palestinians have been detained by Israel – about 40% of the male population.

A life of stasis would be population control, combined with energy rationing. That is the stasis world that you live in if you stay. And even with improvements in efficiency, you’ll still have to ration energy. That, to me, doesn’t sound like a very exciting civilization for our grandchildren‘s grandchildren to live in.
If you think broadly about business, population size is a very important factor.
By 2030, just a small percentage of the global population will live in poverty.
The population of Seoul is decreasing but a large population is not a key element of an advanced city.
The population of Hindus is 100 crore. So obviously India is a Hindu Rashtra.

The use of refined petroleum as fuel, which began in the 1850s, freed hundreds of millions of people from the toil of centuries, gave hundreds of millions more a life of ease and plenty, and, by allowing great cities to feed themselves from every corner of the world, multiplied the population of the earth fivefold.
The military has been tremendously important in the past during catastrophes and in protecting the population. But it shouldn’t become an auxiliary police force.

The bigger question is how does a rogue species called humans – whose population just blew through the seven billion mark on it’s way to nine billion members – manage to survive the next century on a planet with finite resources, without destroying its delicate balance in the process.
Ladies and gentlemen, on the occasion of my election I received many letters from people representing all segments of the population and all professions, especially from the younger generation, linking my inauguration with great – far too great – expectations.

It is true, there are many bad people; there are more of them than in the past, but that is because there are more people, meaning the population has tripled; there must be three times more bad people.
We’re oppressed, I think, you know there’s only 5 per cent of the world’s population who are ginger? So it’s a tough time for us gingers.

There are a lot of studies that suggest a higher rate of creativity in bipolars than the general population.
There’s a point at which we have to control our borders. The bottom line is the world is full up and the population on the planet is getting bigger and bigger and there ain’t much room any more. So, how’s it going to work? I don’t know.
We have this historic problem that we have a quarter of our population, the people of Quebec, who have never signed on to the Constitution. That can’t go on forever.

Story was that human civilization started to develop with first social network. Emerged where population concentration was high. Helped propel to where we are now. Facebook is next step of creating a huge human brain to embrace hundreds of million, possibly billions of people.
In the final analysis, the whole cause of world revolution hinges on the revolutionary struggles of the Asian, African and Latin American people who make up the overwhelming majority of the world’s population.
Less cars on the road means productivity and jobs growth, as it allows for the more efficient movement of goods and services and encourages greater urban population density.
The DREAM Act was intended to benefit illegal immigrants who were brought here as children, the most sympathetic subset among our large illegal immigrant population.
Our planet’s lands and oceans are already stretched to meet the demands of 7 billion people. The human population continues to grow. The search for sustainable solutions is an economic and a moral imperative if we are to create the future we want.
As a small country, both in size and population, our future hinges on the quality of our people.
Indonesia is the world’s third-largest democracy. And we also have the world’s largest Muslim population. This demonstrates that democracy and Islam are not incompatible. Terrorism is not associated with any religion.
My most visible goal is to do something in nutrition to children in India, and pregnant mothers. Because that would change the mental and physical health of our population in years to come.
The immediate, highest priority need, in my humble opinion, is that we build quickly the interim structures that can channel water away from population and businesses in the New Orleans area.

A military or government hierarchy is anathema to the dispersed population and diverse tribes of mountainous Afghanistan.
The Dallas model, prominent in the South and Southwest, sees a growing population as a sign of urban health. Cities liberally permit housing construction to accommodate new residents. The Los Angeles model, common on the West Coast and in the Northeast Corridor, discourages growth by limiting new housing.
The fighting back by indigenous people started in 1900: OK, they’ve cornered us. Our population is almost gone; they’ve defeated us. From there, the modern Indian rights movement started, and it was a very hard fight, with a lot of stuff going against them.
We see our mobile initiatives as a way to bring our intellectual properties and our gameplay experiences to a larger population than the tens or hundred million consumers that own a dedicated gaming system.

We can survive as a population only if we conserve, develop sustainably, and protect the world’s resources.
Population growth is straining the Earth’s resources to the breaking point, and educating girls is the single most important factor in stabilizing that. That, plus helping women gain political and economic power and safeguarding their reproductive rights.

The military is a discrete entity. Then they come back, and they’re such a small percentage of the population, and they can’t really – it’s hard for them to talk to civilians.
The most important question we have to deal with is a combination of population control and the control of our environment – how to utilize the world in as effective a way as we can for the future of mankind.
The trust of the mass population can no longer be taken for granted, and any continuation of the ‘grand illusion‘ is dangerous for leaders in today’s world.
When the Khmer Rouge reached Phnom Penh, the first thing they did was to evacuate the population. Then they took over. The point of a revolution is to bring justice to the people, so even if you don’t have proof of sabotage, you manufacture it.
The Delaware Estuary has sustained a human population for thousands of years, but by the end of the 19th Century, increased population and industrialization had transformed much of the upper Estuary watershed.
There’s something troubling about a condition in which one country alone, which has roughly 5 percent of the world’s population, spends more than 50 percent of the world’s defense budgets. There’s something weird about it.
It’s extremely important that we elect people that look like the population they serve.
Well, I think it’s real important that people understand, first and foremost, those of us that have lived in Arizona or in southern California, we have a very diverse population. The Hispanic population has been part of all of our lives since we’ve been born here or since we’ve grown up here.
By 2022, China is expected to cede the dubious distinction of being the world’s most populous nation to India, according to the population division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

In the US, there is basically one party – the business party. It has two factions, called Democrats and Republicans, which are somewhat different but carry out variations on the same policies. By and large, I am opposed to those policies. As is most of the population.
Most of the population cannot afford a private driver. What we’re doing is relentlessly innovating to bring the price point down.

There’s a reason the Chinese government is very concerned about Ai Weiwei. It’s because he has all of these ingredients in his life that allow him to attract enormous attention across a very broad spectrum of the population.
My home State of North Carolina ranks 12th in the United States for increased aging population and, according to a national report, 41st in overall health. According to this same report, individuals aged 50+ are the least healthy.

The lack of space and a growing prison population has strained resources and put pressure on all levels of the penal system.
Facebook is not a physical country, but with 900 million users, its ‘population’ comes third after China and India. It may not be able to tax or jail its inhabitants, but its executives, programmers, and engineers do exercise a form of governance over people’s online activities and identities.
Worse there cannot be; a better, I believe, there may be, by giving energy to the capital and skill of the country to produce exports, by increasing which, alone, can we flatter ourselves with the prospect of finding employment for that part of our population now unemployed.
Some restrictions should be imposed on population. First of all, each city should have certain population, certain limit.
We live on a planet of limited resources – an abstract notion for some of the world’s population, but for many of the poorest and most vulnerable, those limits are all too real.
Think about all kinds of infectious diseases, like mumps or measles or chicken pox. When a virgin population encountered those pathogens, it ravaged the population, and now they’re childhood diseases, and eventually they won’t even be that. That’s our relationship with bacteria, going through time.
I am convening the African Leaders Forum on Disability in partnership with Special Olympics so that a marginalized population long unrecognized does not remain in the shadows. I consider this a critical, moral and practical challenge.
A very large majority of the U.S. population is in favor of establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba and has been for a long time with some fluctuations. And even part of the business world is in favor of it, too. But the government won’t allow it.
The magic of America is that we’re a free and open society with a mixed population. Part of our security is our freedom.

I had this fantasy that in a democracy the government was the population. So I came to America and got a big slap in my face… Americans were not what I thought. I thought I was going to see bastards and I saw nice people, very friendly to me.
Larger-than-life characters make up about .01 percent of the world’s population.
There are certainly more people in the business world who would score high in the psychopathic dimension than in the general population. You’ll find them in any organization where, by the nature of one’s position, you have power and control over other people and the opportunity to get something.
Population growth and development place additional stress on the Nation’s water infrastructure and its ability to sustain hard-won water quality gains.

I have a cell phone that doesn’t behave like a phone: It behaves like a computer that makes calls. Computers are becoming an integral part of daily life. And if people don’t start designing them to be more user-friendly, then an even larger part of the population is going to be left out of even more stuff.
If Katie Couric or Anderson Cooper asked me to come on to their shows and give them content every single day, I would do it because that gives me access to a huge population of people that I can hopefully, in some way, plant seeds in fertile soil, and those seeds would grow into oak trees of freedom.
Every State has the primary duty to protect its own population from grave and sustained violations of human rights, as well as from the consequences of humanitarian crises, whether natural or man-made.
Ours is not a poor country and even though we are now a poor people, there should be no room for the despondency that has settled on large sections of the population.
We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem.
How is our society going to progress if 50 percent of the population is not allowed to contribute?

Immigration is one of the leading contributors to population growth.
The federal government secures the border; Californians decide how we want to treat our population. I think we need a vibrant guest worker program. If we have one, we’re going to stop having a lot of issues at the border.
Population, when unchecked, increases in a geometrical ratio.
Egypt is home to the largest Christian population in the Middle East, largely because they’ve been persecuted to brink of extinction everywhere else in the region.
I’m not looking ahead joyfully to the rest of my life or the future of the human race. I’ve always written about man as an animal species among other animals, competing for limited resources. Our population is exploding. Our environment is dying. Science has debunked God.
Two-thirds of all growth takes place in cities because, by simple fact of population density, our urban spaces are perfect innovation labs. The modern metropolis is jam-packed. People are living atop one another; their ideas are as well.
In the years to come, the combination of climate change and population growth could have a devastating effect on the planet and, needless to say, on humanity.
Issues relating to global health and sustainability must stay high on the agenda if we are to cope with an ageing and ever-increasing population, with growing pressure on resources, and with rising global temperatures. The risks and dangers need to be assessed and then confronted.
What you have to remember about Belarus is that it’s a small state – it has a population of less than 10m people – and like many small states, it has to be very careful about its relationships.
Imagine a political system so radical as to promise to move more of the poorest 20% of the population into the richest 20% than remain in the poorest bracket within the decade? You don’t need to imagine it. It’s called the United States of America.
In the development of antibiotics, the soil microbiological population has contributed more than its share. It is to the soil that the microbiologists came in search of new antibacterial agents.
Kids just don’t read any more. They spend much more time with video games. It’s just hard to get kids to read anything. Book sales have dropped dramatically, too. I think 90% of the books are bought only by 5% of the US population.
Texas has no income tax, which is a big draw for corporate executives who do business there. But it’s hardly tax-free. The property taxes are high for a Southern state. The sales taxes are high. One study found that the bottom 20 percent of the Texas population pays 12 percent of its income in state and local taxes.
The old-fashioned idea is that responsibility falls upon those who borrow and lend. Money was not borrowed by campesinos, assembly plant workers, or slum-dwellers. The mass of the population gained little from borrowing, indeed often suffered grievously from its effects.
I do not think the gay population has been all that rabid for gay marriage. Note that I do not use the words ‘gay community.’ Expunge that expression from your vocabulary. We are not a community.
I think I can allow myself one child – and from then on, I think I would have to adopt. It makes sense not to add to the population problem.

It’s an unfortunate fact that in the male black population, a very significant percentage of them, more so than whites or other minority candidates, because of convictions, prison records, are never going to be hired by a police department. That’s a reality. That’s not a byproduct of stop-and-frisk.
Do not forget birthdays. This is in no way a propaganda for a larger population.
About 20 per cent of the population believe themselves to have a food allergy and only about five per cent actually do.

We need a better strategy to achieve the national goal of a stable population, healthier and better educated.
It is all very well for 2% of the population to live in a monastic state of meatlessness while everyone else gorges their way towards environmental meltdown or the nearest heart clinic. Vegetarianism is good for the willing minority, but not much use as a campaign tool.
We used to live in a world where the price of resources came down steadily, and now the world has changed. You have a great mismatch between finite resources and exponential population growth.
Anticommunism in its modern form was invented by liberals like Harry Truman, the architect of the national security state. The proportion of the voting population that was not anticommunist in 1961 was miniscule.
No Muslim country has ever done as much as Turkey to make itself over in the image of a European nation-state; the country’s westernised elite brutally imposed secularism, among other things, on its devout population of peasants.
The number of children in the world is not growing, and so we eventually have a chance to stabilize the population at around 10 billion. We have the technology and wherewithal to feed and provide energy for this many people.

There is simply no way our nation can progress if its women population is left behind.
Frankly, I find it very odd that, in a population that’s more than 50 per cent of women, that Hollywood isn’t producing more movies to cater to that audience. The demographic is being grossly underserved, in my opinion.
A country’s economic growth may be defined as a long-term rise in capacity to supply increasingly diverse economic goods to its population, this growing capacity based on advancing technology and the institutional and ideological adjustments that it demands.
We should not let those with a political agenda use London’s growing population to support their anti-immigration rhetoric, and we should challenge those who want to label London’s global attraction a flaw rather than a strength.
When the Australian Government looked at how to meet the challenges, and the opportunities, presented by our ageing population, it saw that an all-encompassing approach was a prerequisite.
Cities are important because that’s where the majority of the world’s population lives and an even bigger share of the global economy resides.
Africa’s young population could be a huge economic asset if inequality were addressed.

Numerically speaking, half the population cannot be a minority. Yet when it comes to women, the numbers plainly show that the mathematically impossible is the socially acceptable.
I think this notion that it’s the population of the U.S. against the big companies is just wrong.
Early coronavirus fatality rates as often cited may appear worse than they actually are for a majority of the public because they do not include the many undiagnosed, asymptomatic cases; and because they do not reflect the dramatically elevated risk for the elderly compared to the rest of the population.
We don’t believe the market can be dominated by one company in e-commerce in China – namely Alibaba. The Chinese market is very wide and deep, with a huge population.
Society and medicine treat us all as members of populations, whereas as individuals we are all unique, and population statistics do not apply.
It’s troubling that by eliminating weekend voting hours, the state of Ohio specifically banned a popular voting time of choice for minorities.

A year ago I was in the city of Genoa, and I found that it returned seven representatives to the Sardinian Parliament at Turin, seven being its fair share, calculated according to the population of the various cities and districts of the Sardinian kingdom.
I have a lot of Japanese friends: I grew up in Vancouver, and there’s this huge Japanese population over there.

The best way to prevent the homegrown-inspired attacks is literally positive engagement with Muslim communities. Making sure that any immigrant population that comes into America assimilates, becomes part of our culture. That has been our history; it has made us strong.
My government has been playing catch-ups building the schools, hospitals, roads and transport links our state needs to deal with our growing population after years of do-nothing Labor governments.
I’m not going to tell the Palestinians how to arrange themselves. If they want to have their own entity and their own parliament as they do today, that’s fine. If they want to connect to Jordan, which has a very big Palestinian population, and vote in the Jordanian government, that’s fine.
Governments are not representative. They have their own power, serving segments of the population that are dominant and rich.
The Federal prison population has increased more than 7-fold over the past 20 years.
If the most liberal man that’s ever been in office can get elected when 20 percent of the population identifies as liberal then I think we can elect a conservative when 40 percent of the population identifies themselves as conservative.
I would like to see the gay population get on board with feminism. It’s a beautiful organisation and they’ve done so much. It seems to me a no-brainer.
I do worry about population growth and the preservation of the green belt space but I don’t think these are insurmountable problems.
I’m not talking about what you hear from 5 per cent of the population on the radio, in the papers. I don’t pay attention to it. I travel around the country. I’m happy I have a good relationship with the people.

Child labor perpetuates poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, population growth, and other social problems.
India is a major power, with a youthful and hardworking population, and has an incredibly bright future. I hope the U.K. can be part of that journey as a close partner.
The whole of the global economy is based on supplying the cravings of two per cent of the world’s population.
By 2050, the Australian population is expected to grow from 22 million to 36 million. That increase alone will put huge pressure on our towns and our cities. We will need more homes, more roads, more rail lines, more hospitals, more schools, just to accommodate so many Australians.
My feeling is that if all Catholics or Reformed Christians had been deported to Germany, the Dutch government in London would have instructed the population in the occupied Netherlands to help them.
We are trying to capture the widest possible audience all around the world. In other words, we are trying to capture the people who are even beyond the gaming population.

All other things being equal, it thus follows that the most attractive acquisition a society can have is a young adult, whose childhood and education has already been paid for, but whose entire working life still lies ahead.
The grizzly bears that live in and around Yellowstone make up almost half the population in the lower 48 states, and now those bears are at risk.

I think among the population at large, people are openly fascinated with crime and don’t feel any shame over it. It’s only the opinion-makers and the ‘opinion elites‘ who turn up their noses.

In a country like Mexico, you can’t forget about poverty – about how half of the population lives in poverty, and how half of that half live in extreme poverty.
For too long, we financed our schools in a way that has systematically left large segments of our population behind.
The root cause of the looming energy problem – and the key to easing environmental, economic and religious tensions while improving public health – is to address the unending, and unequal, growth of the human population. And the one proven way to reduce fertility rates is to empower young women by educating them.
Well, I’ve obviously been a great source of inspiration to the academic population of Salford! They’re citing me as a major contribution to their upward trajectory!

The middle class, in the white population, encompasses a wide swath.
Probably the most important reason we are seeing more cancers than before is because the population is ageing overall. And cancer is an age-related disease.
