Courtesy Pam Thomas. Pam Thomas of Cave Creek, Arizona, spent her 30s and 40s overweight and out of shape. With high blood pressure and other health problems looming on the cusp of her 50th birthday, Thomas decided it was time to finally take control of her health. She started by tackling problem number one: her alcohol intake. She cut her drinking down to just one or two servings per month, and with just that one change she began to see improvements.
Then she started exercising, and last, she cleaned up her diet, fixing her troubled relationship with food.
Now, at 51 years old, Thomas has lost 45 pounds, going from to pounds, and wears a size 6. But even more importantly, she got her blood pressure under control and no longer needs medication for it.

The couple started by taking daily walks and making meals of protein and veggies. This blended family of four includes a daughter 12 from her first marriage and two daughters 13, 11 and a son 5 from his first marriage, plus a new arrival, a black Lab. The kids make their own beds, pack their bags and take out the puppy. Depending on the day, it could be tennis, dance class, bass lessons or soccer practice in the late afternoon and evening.
She keeps the schedule, runs a tight ship, and has fun doing it. It is a unique talent to have so much going on and accomplish it all with a smile.
On the frequent family trips, Christopher likes to interject some fun by organizing scavenger hunts, be it a week in Key West or a weekend at the Prudential Center in Boston. He treats my daughter no differently, maintaining a great relationship with her. And all the while, he keeps them laughing! In Chatham, at the Blair household, the children are much younger, but scheduling is no less important and life is just as busy.
Making it all work is possible through friends, family, an employer who allows a flexible work schedule and of course, each other. Every week seems a bit different from the last but we manage to make it all work. Mandee, Justin says, possesses a unique combination of self-confidence, humility, wisdom and compassion. This push and pull is indicative of debates across many Cape towns but there are positive ways these seemingly disconnected segments of the population interact.
Justin is impressed by the support of the predominantly older generation for a younger generation often struggling to make a living and stay here. They are committed to the communities and continue to contribute to nonprofits. Couples like us need to counsel other young people that you can live and work here and have a wonderful life.
To stabilize its current population, South Korea would need to reverse the trend and double the current birth rate. With fewer young people entering the workforce, the social costs of supporting the elderly could quickly overwhelm the national economy. Other urbanized nations are also dealing with variations on this depopulation bomb: Globally, the birth rate has been falling in nearly all regions since the mids, from almost five births per woman to just over 2.
The figure is expected to drop further over the next few decades, down to just two births per women by , according to the United Nations. That might be good news for the resource-strapped planet which is expected to continue to gain population, hitting nearly 10 billion by , but it will be a challenge for many nations that need to balance aging populations. And perhaps nowhere else are the consequences more pronounced than in East Asia, where countries like South Korea, China, and Japan are facing workforce shortages and—in the case of the latter—a shrinking population.

For young people who flock to metropolitan Seoul in search of better job opportunities, these benefits are crucial. They face a fiercely competitive labor market, making it a challenge to prioritize children. And many lack the support of their own parents, who live outside the city and who otherwise would have lent a hand.
Being a mom on the go in Seoul can be a challenge, she says. There are no high chairs in this coffeeshop, and bringing in a stroller would have been difficult, thanks to the lack of ramps. Irene stays strapped to her mom, playing with a plastic straw, as we talk.
On paper, the South Korean parental safety net puts countries like the U. This year, South Korea is expect to clock in at fewer than one birth per woman this year. Part of the challenge is economic.

Government-subsidized private day care centers make up The sheer volume may seem adequate, but some centers can have more than a children on their waitlist. Private day care centers have recently come under fire after a caretaker suffocated an month-old while trying to put him to sleep and after a four-year-old died inside a hot minibus.
