BREVITAS

Bob Herbert, NY Times - Only 65 of every 100 men aged 20 through 24 years old were working on any given day in the first six months of this year. In the age group 25 through 34 years old, traditionally a prime age range for getting married and starting a family, just 81 of 100 men were employed. For male teenagers, the numbers were disastrous: only 28 of every 100 males were employed in the 16- through 19- year-old age group. For minority teenagers, forget about it. The numbers are beyond scary; they're catastrophic.

ENN - Over 350 new species including the world's smallest deer, a "flying frog" and a 100 million-year old gecko have been discovered in the Eastern Himalayas, a biological treasure trove now threatened by climate change. . . . One of the most significant findings was not exactly "new" in the classic sense. A 100-million year-old gecko, the oldest fossil gecko species known to science, was discovered in an amber mine in the Hukawng Valley in the northern Myanmar.

Work is the first and essential fundamental condition of being alive.

Society has NO right to withold jobs from anybody. To give society the right to withold jobs is to give society the right to kill innocent people indiscriminately.
