A survey of ageing populations: : A slow-burning fuset - STOP thinking for a moment about deep recession, trillion-dollar rescue packages and mounting job losses. Instead, contemplate the prospect of slow growth and low productivity, rising public spending and labour shortages. These are the problems of ageing populations, and if they sound comparatively mild, think again. When the IMF earlier this month calculated the impact of the recent financial crisis, it found that the costs will indeed be huge: the fiscal balances of the G20 advanced countries are likely to deteriorate by eight percentage points of GDP in 2008-09. But the IMF also noted that in the longer term these costs will be dwarfed by age-related spending. Looking ahead to the period between now and 2050, it predicted that “for advanced countries, the fiscal burden of the crisis [will be] about 10% of the ageing-related costs” (see chart 1). The other 90% will be extra spending on pensions, health and long-term care.

Survey: Jehovah's Witnesses pray the most nationally - Which religion has members who waste the most time pray the most? Survey: Jehovah's Witnesses pray the most nationally. On this National Day of Prayer, a survey finds that Jehovah's Witnesses are the most likely Americans to pray daily, Catholics are just below average and 5 percent of atheists claim to pray daily. "It's more likely [atheists] enjoy messing with the people doing the survey," said Stuart Bechman, president of the Atheist Alliance International. "Maybe they are talking about grace at dinner with a religious family." In the survey of 35,000 Americans from the Pew Research Center, Jews pray the least among faith groups. Ernie Frederick, director of the Pittsburgh Prayer Network sez: "People tend to think of prayer as a candy machine, where I put the right God words in and pull the lever and God gives us his goodies. They think of answers to prayer as objects rather than as expressions of his will and purpose for us."

Survey: Support for terror suspect torture differs among the faithful - CNN.com - I thought religious peeps were supposed to be, i dunno, compassionate or pro-life or something. Guess not. The more often Americans go to church, the more likely they are to support the torture of suspected terrorists, according to a new survey. More than half of people who attend services at least once a week -- 54 percent -- said the use of torture against suspected terrorists is "often" or "sometimes" justified. Only 42 percent of people who "seldom or never" go to services agreed, according the analysis released Wednesday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life. White evangelical Protestants were the religious group most likely to say torture is often or sometimes justified -- more than six in 10 supported it. People unaffiliated with any religious organization were least likely to back it. Only four in 10 of them did. I really hate to paint with a broad brush or anything here, but this poll really makes me wonder if a lot these church-going torture groupies would even let Jesus into their church if he showed up. Count me among the heathens, thanks.

The Would You Have Been a Nazi Test - To me, what is most frightening about the horrors of World War II is that many Germans sat idly by, while their leaders stomped all over Europe and slaughtered innocent people. There was no excuse then, as there would be no excuse now.Amazingly, the German people embraced their ridiculous Fuehrer, or at the very least, they accepted him. It was cool and patriotic to support Hitler. (A little close-minded, though.)So, please take my test.

Survey: Californians want sex education in schools - "Seventy-eight percent of California residents favor school sex education programs that teach children about obtaining and using contraceptives, according to the survey of more than 2,500 adults conducted by The Public Policy Institute of California from late November through mid-December. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percent. Seventy-six percent of state residents favor government funding of programs that provide birth control methods to teenagers, the survey found. Contrary to conventional wisdom, almost two-thirds of Californians who describe themselves as evangelical Christians, 66 percent, favor sex education programs that include information about birth control, according to the survey."
