Current World Population

Around 384 thousand are born
, 156 thousand die each day. That is a net increase of 229
thousand new people every single day. 140.4 million are born each year.
The world population grew from 1 billion to 7 billion from 1800
to 2011. 1960 the world Population was 3,039,451,023.
In 2011 it is estimated that 135 million people were born and 57
million died, for an increase in population of 78 million.
At the beginning of the 19 century there were only 12 cities in
the world that had over a million people, in 2013, there is over
500 cities in the world with more than a million people. Half
the worlds population lives in large cities, and if you combined all the
large cities in the world, it would cover an area half the size of

involves the prevention or
inhibition of reproduction in otherwise healthy adult individuals. It
includes delayed sexual maturation (puberty) or inhibition of sexual
receptivity, facultatively increased interbirth interval through delayed
or inhibited ovulation or spontaneous or induced abortion, abandonment of
immature and dependent offspring, mate guarding, selective destruction and
worker policing of eggs in some eusocial insects or cooperatively breeding
birds, and infanticide (see also infanticide (zoology)), and infanticide
in carnivores) of the offspring of subordinate females either by directly
killing by dominant females or males in mammals or indirectly through the

The problem isn't so much over population
though it is a problem in certain areas,
the main problem is
. This world could easily handle 10 billion people, as
long as every person was fully educated that is. But because we
have so many undereducated people at all levels of society, from
the very poor to the very rich, we will always suffer from the
ignorance that comes from having undereducated people. When
people don't have the right knowledge and information that's
needed to make good decisions and good choices, they will
constantly make mistakes and not have the necessary abilities to
solve problems, or even have the ability to see problems that
are right in front of them.

My parents have seen the world population
triple in their life times from 1900 till 2000. I have seen the
world population double in my lifetime since 1960 till 2015. And if I live
till 2060, I will also see the world population triple
being born today will not see the world population double in
their lifetimes. So is the birth rate slowing down?
Adolescents aged 10–24 years represent over a quarter of the
population (1.8 billion), 89% of whom live in developing countries.
Adolescents aged 10–24 years have the poorest health-care coverage of any
age group. Two-thirds of young people are growing up in countries where
preventable and treatable health problems like HIV/AIDS, early pregnancy,
unsafe sex, depression, injury, and violence remain a daily threat to
their health, wellbeing, and life chances.

is a measure of the number of deaths (in
general, or due to a specific cause) in a particular population, scaled to
the size of that population, per unit of time. Mortality rate is typically
expressed in units of deaths per 1,000 individuals per year; thus, a
mortality rate of 9.5 (out of 1,000) in a population of 1,000 would mean
9.5 deaths per year in that entire population, or 0.95% out of the total.
It is distinct from "morbidity", a term used to refer to either the
prevalence or incidence of a disease, and also from the incidence rate
(the number of newly appearing cases of the disease per unit of time).

their knowledge. It involves picking up on idiosyncrasies to try
to guess at another person's story. This includes speech in

clothing and activities.
may accompany the activity, though is not
required. For some people it is considered a hobby, but for many
others it is a subconscious activity they partake in everyday
without even realizing.
People watching can be insightful and informative for authors
when writing a book or actors when performing a play. Watching
how other people walk, talk and interact with each other can be
used as inspiration for their characters. It can also inspire
other artistic works such as artwork and photography, or lead to
writing a symphony, movie script or blog post. For others,
people watching is a
fun and relaxing activity.
Careful of Assessments
People watching is not to be confused with naturalistic
observation. Naturalistic observation is used for scientific
purposes. It uses the same techniques as people watching. The
key is to not let anyone know that you are observing him or her.
People are in their natural environment, so there is no pressure
for them to behave a certain way, as they would feel if they
knew they were being studied. Scientists often are fond of this
method because people are acting naturally and not acting how
they are expected to act.
Naturalistic observation is, in contrast to analog observation,
a research tool in which a subject is observed in its natural
habitat without any manipulation by the observer. During
naturalistic observation researchers take great care to avoid
interfering with the behavior they are observing by using
unobtrusive methods. Naturalistic observation involves two main
differences that set it apart
from other forms of data gathering. In the context of a
naturalistic observation the environment is in no way being
manipulated by the observer nor was it created by the observer.
Analog observation is, in contrast to naturalistic observation,
a research tool by which a subject is observed in an artificial
setting. Typically, types of settings in which analog
observation is utilized include clinical offices or research
laboratories, but, by definition, analog observations can be
made in any artificial environment, even if the environment is
one which the subject is likely to encounter naturally. Analog
observation is typically divided into two iteration of
application: The first iteration primarily studies the effect of
manipulation of variables in the subject's environment,
including setting and events, on the subject's behavior. The
second iteration primarily seeks to observe the subject's
behavior in quasi-experimental social situations.
Naturalistic observation as a research tool comes with both
advantages and disadvantages that impact its application. By
merely observing a given instance without any manipulation in
its natural context it makes the behaviors exhibited more
credible because they are occurring in a real typical scenario
as opposed to an artificial one generated within a lab.
Naturalistic observation also allows for study of events that it
is deemed unethical to study via experimental models, such as
the impact of high school shootings on students attending the
