This essay has a total of 526 words and 3 pages.

It is reported that male's retirement age, in China, will gradually increase to 65 by
2030. Besides, Canada's central authority, in 2008, made an announcement to abolish the
practice of its forced retirement. Judging from the above issues, Forced retirement seems
to be not much of a good means to regulate employment, assure people of equal
opportunities of employment or boom the economy.

Unluckily, forced retirement, carefully laid by our government, backfires- it to some
extent hampers the healthy development of employment and embarrasses the Chinese
financial officials. First, aging population is not a thing that only happens in developed
or sparsely-populated countries. In fact, under the strict control of birth (namely,
one-child plan), the population of the aged (ranging from 60) in China has reached 123
million in the late 2011, taking up around 10% of China's total population and surpassing
that of Europe, which means, if all Chinese senior citizen are that obedient to take a
timely retirement, they will definitely need great financial support and bring on vast
spending to our government which is also and always in need of money. Besides, what
emerges with falling birth rate and aging population is a decrease in working-age
population. Should the senior citizens hustle about retirement, companies would suffer
great losses, let alone the whole country, and the young couples both from only-child
families would be obliged to take care of four parents- what a disaster it would be!

Although people use to pay tribute to blooming youth, fine wine improves with age. Some
careers, such as professor and philosopher, need constant practices to sharpen their
skills and knowledge. For those with a rigid hierarchy (like politician), there is a long

    Immigration & America's Future Unknown The world has gone through a revolution and it has changed a lot. We have cut the death rates around the world with modern medicine and new farming methods.

  • Overpopulation
    Overpopulation Unknown During the first 2 million or so years of its history the human population was a minor element in the world ecosystem, with at most 10 million members.

With the abandonment of a hunting-gat

Many of the things we prayed for during ages have been achieved by means of expensive scientific research. What is hard to understand however is that humans spent even more scientific efforts and even more finances to destroy all those benefits. For each disease we have overcome, we h

    Simulation A black hole is a star that has collapsed into a tiny point known as a singularity. It is so dense that it sucks in everything near it, including light. Black holes can be seen via the death throes of the matter being sucked in. Although it becomes invisible past a certain point, an accretion disk, which is visible, develops as the matter swirls toward the black hole. The collapsed star is so dense that nothing can escape its gravitational pull, not even light. A black hole is a conc
