    Wyoming and Alaska vie for the highest per capita suicide rate in America, and a lot of it has to do with there being few folks around. Many home owners in Wyoming only live there part time because they have other homes in other states. There is a big gap between the wealthy and the rest.

    Isolation is certainly a big factor along with loss of jobs and drug abuse.

    Here's a much broader look from 2016 report article...


    How Social Isolation Is Killing Us ?


    And do note this phenomenon is just getting started in modern day China,
    where there is most definitely a shortage of those so called 'little sisters' ...

    Wink/wink.
    I see your point Gio, initially my feeling was that this is a world wide phenomena. When people have only the digital world instead of organic friends, something has to give. Thank you for pointing it out!
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    I'm sorry to go off course with that, Gio. Tangental connections aren't always useful. And I was definitely going off on a tangent.

    I really feel for the men in China with so few eligible women available. It's been a long tragedy which is still manifesting its consequences.



    According to that poll, folks with more money are happier. The wealthy got a bunch of tax breaks recently, so that helped. It helped them, anyway.

    Something new on a winter's day
    Nice tour with some fun information ...

    'A walk through Brooklyn Heights with comedian,
    tour guide, and New Yorker Tom Delgado.'



    Walking NYC (Narrated) : Brooklyn Heights with Tom Delgado


    (February 9, 2020)

    "I walk through Brooklyn Heights with comedian, tour guide,
    and New Yorker Tom Delgado."

    From Wikipedia:
    "Brooklyn Heights is an affluent residential neighborhood within the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The neighborhood is bounded by Old Fulton Street near the Brooklyn Bridge on the north, Cadman Plaza West on the east, Atlantic Avenue on the south, and the Brooklyn–Queens Expressway or the East River on the west. Adjacent neighborhoods are Dumbo to the north, Downtown Brooklyn to the east, and Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill to the south.

    Originally referred to as Brooklyn Village, it has been a prominent area of Brooklyn since 1834. The neighborhood is noted for its low-rise architecture and its many brownstone rowhouses, most of them built prior to the Civil War. It also has an abundance of notable churches and other religious institutions. Brooklyn's first art gallery, the Brooklyn Arts Gallery, was opened in Brooklyn Heights in 1958. In 1965, a large part of Brooklyn Heights was protected from unchecked development by the creation of the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, the first such district in New York City. The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1966.

    Directly across the East River from Manhattan and connected to it by subways and regular ferry service, Brooklyn Heights is also easily accessible from Downtown Brooklyn. Columbia Heights, an upscale six-block-long street next to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, is sometimes considered to be its own neighborhood.

    Brooklyn Heights is part of Brooklyn Community District 2 and its primary ZIP Code is 11201. It is patrolled by the 84th Precinct of the New York City Police Department. The New York City Fire Department operates two fire stations near Brooklyn Heights: Engine Company 205/Ladder Company 118 at 74 Middagh Street, and Engine Company 224 at 274 Hicks Street."

    Note beginning at the 32 minute mark
    there will be spectacular views
    of lower Manhattan ...

    Question

    Meanwhile ...
    The forgotten ones ...


    Iraq - The orphans of Mosul | DW Documentary

    Thousands of orphans, many the sons and daughters of I-S fighters, live in refugee camps in Iraq. 45,000 children are living in displacement camps without papers. Many are the sons and daughters of I-S fighters, and now live in refugee camps in Iraq. The Iraqi authorities refuse to issue identity documents to these children. They receive no food aid, and are not allowed to leave the camps.

    Tens of thousands of orphaned children - many the sons and daughters of slain Islamic State fighters -- are now housed in refugee camps in Iraq. Many more of these children are likely living homeless in villages and cities, but it's impossible to say how many. The Iraqi authorities refuse to issue identity documents to these children. That means that they can't attend school, and the older ones among them won't be able to find jobs. The children in the camps receive no food aid -- and they're not allowed to leave the facilities, either.

    They live in constant fear, and are often threatened by Iraqis who seek revenge for crimes committed by I-S. Two years after the effective dissolution of the Islamic State's self-declared caliphate, neither the Iraqi authorities nor the survivors of I-S terrorism seem to accept the fact that these children are not responsible for those crimes. It's also possible that in future, when these orphans grow up, they may themselves turn to terrorism because of the indignities that they've suffered in the camps.
