It’s
 worth pointing out that the poverty rate mentioned in the picture is 
relative poverty. By law everyone in Norway is entitled to shelter and 
subsistence support including basic health care.
Poor Norwegians, in other words, receive far more support from society than poor Americans do.

Family, God, and Life: God created the dog and said: Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said: That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?' So God agreed Then God created the monkey and said: Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this I'll give you a twenty-year life span.' The monkey said: 'Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?" And God agreed. Then God created the cow and said: You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years. The cow said: That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years.. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty? And God agreed again. Thereafter God created humans and said: Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'II give you twenty years." But the human said: Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?' Okay, said God, 'You asked for it." So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Children, Crazy, and Dad: 7 mins When you say something crazy happened to me in Walmart today! A million different things come to mind but what happened to me and my daughter I think will change many lives in years to come. I was in the toy aisle with Chloe and she was trying to decide on what toy to get. And like all children they reach for a toy outside their budget, she only had 20 dollars. She had to decide if shopkins or another toy was what she wanted. But then she saw the "Lil Gem" bike and she plead her case please daddy can l get this bike I will put back my shopkins.' To all you parents out there with kids between 3 and 7 shopkins are a big deal but she wanted this bike. So me being the good husband I am Lol. I call my wife to make sure it is ok to spend the extra $35 to get her the bike. In the meantime on the way back to get the bike it looks like someone bought the one we were looking at so we get the last one they had on a higher shelf. We are on our way to the front of the store and I let Chloe Grace ride the bike up front to go and pay. As usual in our small town you see someone you know in Walmart. We stopped to talk to them and they asked if Chloe was buying the bike. As we are walking to the checkout line two Walmart employees come up to me and Chloe and say 'Sir, wait, wait. This bike is for your daughter, her Secret Santa has just bought her this bike it's yours!!! As you can see the bike had a bow and was the same bike we were about to buy. Me and Chloe had no idea what to say, the guy in Walmart said It's yours you don't need a receipt if you have a problem tell them to come get Patrick. So off we go Chloe Grace and I to put her new bike in our car she doesn't realize what really happened but she tells me'I was like trying to hold back my tears I was so excited' This was when this kind gesture got me right in my heart and has inspired me to give back over this next year I have a plan to give this feeling to at least ten other people. I will try to do it every year tilll am gone to help me remember my little girls face and expression when she got her first new bike from the nicest stranger we never meet!! I would like to thank that stranger for my Little Gem for her Lil Gem the name of her bike. <p>Dad Buys A Bike For His Daughter. But Then The Store Clerk Stunned Him When He Said This.</p>

Being Alone, The Onion, and Tumblr: rushpartyofcanada: Justin Trudeau Unveils Plan To Meet Healthcare Needs Of Canada’s Aging Prog Rockers   OTTAWA—Saying it was only right to give back to those who had done so much for their country, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau unveiled a plan Thursday that would provide for the healthcare needs of the nation’s aging prog rockers.   Groups from Rush to Triumph to Harmonium are valued members of our society, and it’s our duty to ensure that they’re healthy enough to tour throughout their golden years,” said Trudeau at a press conference, explaining that a new bill slightly raising sales taxes would fully fund coverage for the increased expenses incurred by the nation’s elderly prog-rock vocalists, guitarists, and mellotron players. “While prog rockers represent over 5 percent of Canada’s GDP, they require an increasing amount of our healthcare funds, with The Guess Who and Voivod accounting for millions of dollars in annual medical spending alone. As band members get older and have trouble standing for the duration of 19-minute intros, remembering all the lyrics to their fantasy concept albums, or simply getting around a 40-piece drum kit, we owe it to them to do all we can.”   Trudeau’s plan has reportedly spurred calls for similar legislation in Norway, where citizens will increasingly have to contend with significant healthcare expenditures for their large and rapidly aging black metal population.  SOURCE: The Onion

 Groups from Rush to Triumph to Harmonium are valued members of our society, and it’s our duty to ensure that they’re healthy enough to tour throughout their golden years,” said Trudeau at a press conference, explaining that a new bill slightly raising sales taxes would fully fund coverage for the increased expenses incurred by the nation’s elderly prog-rock vocalists, guitarists, and mellotron players. “While prog rockers represent over 5 percent of Canada’s GDP, they require an increasing amount of our healthcare funds, with The Guess Who and Voivod accounting for millions of dollars in annual medical spending alone.

You have two possible paths ahead. Right now, I guarantee you that these athletes have more courage, compassion, brains, skill - actually more of every positive human quality than you. So take their path - you could learn from them, and try to challenge yourself, to give back, to add something from the world.

Black History Month, Children, and College: <p>Black history month Day 7: American botanist and inventor George Washington Carver.</p> <p>George Washington Carver was born a slave sometime in the 1860s, his exact date of birth is unknown. His master was Moses Carver, a German immigrant who had purchased George’s parents for $700. When George was only a week old, he, a sister, and his mother were kidnapped by night raiders from Arkansas to be sold in Kentucky. Moses Carver hired someone to retrieve them but he was only able to save baby George and his older brother James, who had been saved from the kidnapping.</p> <p>After slavery was abolished, Moses and his wife basically adopted George and his brother James and raised them as their own, encouraging George’s intellectual pursuits and teaching him to read and write. Since black children were not allowed to be educated in the local school, George traveled to the school for black children 10 miles south and rented a room in that area to continue his education. He was determined to learn all he could in order to give back to people.</p> <p>George was originally accepted at Highland College in Kansas, but was turned away once they discovered his race. Undeterred, George homesteaded some land where he started a small conservatory of plants, manually plowed over 16 acres of land, and worked as a ranch hand and other odd jobs. Eventually he received a $300 loan for his education, and begin studying art and piano at Simpson College. When his teacher noticed how skilled he was at painting plants, she urged him to pursue botany and he was accepted to Iowa State Agricultural College as their first black student. Eventually he took it one step further and became Iowa State’s first black faculty member after earning his masters.</p> <p>Carver focused his efforts on developing alternative crops to cotton, hoping to better the lives and livelihood of poor farmers. He taught people how to grow things like sweet potatoes and peanuts, and came up with many different uses for this produce. He also taught naturally sustainable ways for rejuvenating nutrient depleted soil and getting the most out of your crops. He received numerous honors for his work in environmentalism, including the Spingarn Medal of the NAACP. His success in scientific fields gained praise across racial barriers, with TIME Magazine once calling him “the black Leonardo”. Carver was even publicly admired by President Theodore Roosevelt.</p>
