The 2015 G7 summit is being held June 7-9 in Germany. In this meeting between the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the USA, one of the key agenda items is neglected and poverty-related diseases and antibiotic resistance.

Will this really save lives? A device connected to a vehicle's ignition system that requires the driver to take a breath test to start the engine. Meet the #Alcolock  


#drivingundertheinfluence #roadsafety  
The alcohol detection device or alcolock is gaining popularity worldwide – but can it, as some claim, stop drunk driving completely?

Last week, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon emphasized the importance of biodiversity in sustainable development, speaking on the occasion of the International Day for Biological Diversity. But why does it matter?

Because having a broad variety of living organisms provides the basis for the ecosystems on which all life on Earth depends. Experts also say that biodiversity can assist with poverty eradication, food security, sustainable production and consumption, water security, disaster risk reduction and climate change. http://knowledge.allianz.com/?2017/Biodiversity-hotspots
Many of Earth’s species face extinction, ecosystems are on the verge of collapse, and it’s largely our fault. To stem this tide of destruction conservationists have identified a list of biodiversity hotspots, nature’s last treasuries.

On the 125th anniversary of the creation of the world’s first state #pension   we can all say “Thank you, Otto!”

#socialsecurity #retirement  
For many people today, retirement is a luxury they cannot afford. 125 years ago Bismarck introduced the first state pension system. What has changed since?
