KATHMANDU， March 17 (Xinhua) -- Nepal has stressed on the need for greater investment in children to capitalize on the country's rapid and unique demographic transition and reap the maximum benefits for the future. Nepal made such call during the launch of a new report titled ""Study on Demographic Changes in Nepal: Trends and Policy Implications"" here on Friday.
The report has been jointly launched by National Planning Commission and UNICEF Nepal.
According to the study， Nepal has been experiencing rapid demographic changes over the last few decades as a result of declining birth and death rates， while it has an improvement in life expectancy within a relatively short span of time.
According to the study， Nepal has a finite ""demographic window of opportunity"" period， the number of years between the time when the percentage of working-age population vis-a-vis the total population starts to increase and the time when the same percentage starts to decrease.
During the demographic window of opportunity， the number and proportion of working-age population is particularly high compared with dependent-age population， which provides very favorable conditions for a country's socio-economic development.
Launching the report， Min Bahadur Shrestha， Vice Chairman at National Planning Commission said， ""We should make prioritized investment in today's children and generations to come in a time-bound manner so that they become much more productive than today's adults by the time they grow into adults themselves. Only then can they adequately support the growing number of old-age people of the country.""
Nepal is projected to transition into an ""aging society"" by 2028 and an ""aged society"" by 2054. It has been claimed that this period provides very favorable conditions for a country's socio-economic development.
The government has claimed that it is committed to making investment for children in such areas like Early Childhood Development， Health， Nutrition， Education， Water， Sanitation and Hygiene， Child Protection， adolescents' development and Social Protection.
According to the latest study， the demographic window of opportunity for Nepal began around 1992 and will start to close in another 30 years around 2047. The number of years Nepal would take to transit from aging society to aged society is 26 years.
Tomoo Hozumi， UNICEF Representative to Nepal said that Nepal can cope effectively with this situation only if today's children become far more productive by the time they become adults themselves and need to support the elderly people of the society while continuously developing the society.
""Nepal requires in this context is not mere 'children in number' but children who are raised to their fullest potential to be able to move the society forward，"" Hozumi said.
" Welcome back to our four-part article series on the tiny microorganisms that live in your mouth. In our previous article post Derrick Rose USA Jersey , the dentists we spoke to in Colorado Springs revealed that (1) there are more bacteria in your mouth than there are people living on the plant (that’s a number in excess of 7 billion!) and (2) that over 700 different species of oral bacteria have been identified. Thankfully, most of them are incapable of making you sick, but they all contribute to the formation of plaque and acidic wastes that cause cavities and tooth decay.
Let’s continue with some more fascinating facts about the critters that call your mouth “home”!
Fascinating Fact # 3…
Everyone has that annoying friend or family member who has no qualms about letting their pet cat or dog lick their fingers and face. They tend to say things like: “Oh a dog has far less germs in its mouth than humans.”
Well Deron Williams USA Jersey , that may be the case, but as much as you love your dog, you don’t want its saliva all over you! If you don’t let other people lick your face DeMarcus Cousins USA Jersey , why would you let an animal that doesn’t even brush its teeth drool on you?
A dog’s mouth isn’t any “cleaner” than a human’s.
The reality is there is no scientific foundation for the claims of that kooky aunt or friend of yours. “A cat or dog’s mouth is just as full of germs as yours is,” says a dentist in Colorado Spring. In fact, there are more than 100 different kinds of germs in dog spit that can make you sick DeMar DeRozan USA Jersey , so think twice the next time you cuddle with Fido. Letting your dog lick your face and (ugh) mouth is NOT the most hygienic of habits and certainly won’t endear you to your girlfriend who is now expected to kiss you.
Fascinating Fact # 4…
You’ve spent a good ten minutes stacking the perfect sandwich: pastrami, American cheese, pickles DeAndre Jordan USA Jersey , avocado, tomato, mayonnaise David Robinson USA Jersey , yellow mustard and two beautiful slices of wheat bread. You grab the plate in your right hand and your giant glass of soda in your left. Spying the TV remote on the counter you try to pick that up with your right hand as well and end up dropping your gorgeous sandwich all over the kitchen floor.
Oh well! 5 Second rule!
Hastily scooping it together, you reassemble your now decidedly less regal-looking food tower and throw caution to the wind… hello lunch! But wait…
There is no such thing as the 5-second rule.
“The five, ten or whatever second rule we all recite when we drop something we were adamant about eating is really quite arbitrary Clyde Drexler USA Jersey ,” say dentists in Colorado Springs. “If your food hits the floor, it’s going to collect bacteria. Obviously, the longer you leave it there Christian Laettner USA Jersey , the more bacteria it’ll gather. But even after one second on the floor, you’re food won’t be pristine.”
