Re: What's the way out of poverty?
The path out of poverty is not one the lower class can make as a whole. In a free society that embraces capitalism, only the individual can bring himself out of poverty, through hard work, dedication and setting clear goals for himself. We as a society do not need the goverment to provide for people, because that means they must take from others. Legal stealing is a major tenet of socialism and is also used in the American Goverment here today to provide for organizations such as welfare and social security. Why should the goverment force us to be charitable, it is an insult to my integrity and values for them to say that i cant be an alturist in my own right. In the end we can give and give and give to needy people everwhere but the individual must drag himself out of poverty, it might not be your fault but it is ur problem.

The team caught a glimpse of a process that takes 18,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years.
- In Italy, a team of scientists is using a highly sophisticated detector to hunt for dark matter.
- The team observed an ultra-rare particle interaction that reveals the half-life of a xenon-124 atom to be 18 sextillion years.
- The half-life of a process is how long it takes for half of the radioactive nuclei present in a sample to decay.
What we know about black holes is both fascinating and scary.
- When it comes to black holes, science simultaneously knows so much and so little, which is why they are so fascinating. Focusing on what we do know, this group of astronomers, educators, and physicists share some of the most incredible facts about the powerful and mysterious objects.
- A black hole is so massive that light (and anything else it swallows) can't escape, says Bill Nye. You can't see a black hole, theoretical physicists Michio Kaku and Christophe Galfard explain, because it is too dark. What you can see, however, is the distortion of light around it caused by its extreme gravity.
- Explaining one unsettling concept from astrophysics called spaghettification, astronomer Michelle Thaller says that "If you got close to a black hole there would be tides over your body that small that would rip you apart into basically a strand of spaghetti that would fall down the black hole."
A new study looks at what would happen to human language on a long journey to other star systems.
- A new study proposes that language could change dramatically on long space voyages.
- Spacefaring people might lose the ability to understand the people of Earth.
- This scenario is of particular concern for potential "generation ships".
