Washington Times 3 Oct 2011If the wealth of a nation is tied to both the quality and the quantity of its people, then modern trends toward cohabiting instead of marrying, easy divorce and fewer children born to couples will have sweeping economic consequences, a new report says. The “long-term fortunes of the modern economy rise and fall with the family,” the Social Trends Institute says in its new report, “The Sustainable Demographic Dividend: What Do Marriage and Fertility Have to Do With the Economy?”…Countries should strive for “sustainable fertility” of at least two children per woman or a total fertility rate of 2.1, the report says. Among developed countries, it adds, the U.S. is an “outlier” with its relatively stable 2.0 fertility rate. Elsewhere, “the average woman in a developed country now bears just 1.66 children,” New America Foundation scholar Phillip Longman writes in the report.Marriage also matters, the report says. Children raised in married, mother-father homes are the most likely to acquire the skills and behaviors conducive to becoming a “well-adjusted, productive” workforce. Also, “men who get and stay married work harder, work smarter, and earn more money than their unmarried peers.” Married couples with children are also economic “drivers” because they consume many services and goods, especially in child care, groceries, health care, home maintenance, household products, insurance and juvenile products, says W. Bradford Wilcox, associate sociology professor at UVa. and director of the National Marriage Project.http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/oct/3/modern-economies-rise-and-fall-with-nuclear-famili/#.Topb31uLV68.email
Share on: WhatsApp Bordeaux, France | AFP | Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny completed a return to France on Tuesday after agreeing a deal with Ligue 1 club Bordeaux on a reported three-year deal.The French defender, 33, made clear his desire for a move last month when he refused to travel on Arsenal’s pre-season tour of the United States.His standoff with the club reportedly came after the Gunners rejected his request to be released from the final year of his contract.“The club is delighted to be able to count on a player with such experience at the highest level,” Bordeaux said in a statement. FILE PHOTO: Laurent Koscielny Koscielny played 353 games for Arsenal, winning the FA Cup three times, and was named club captain at the start of last season following the retirement of Per Mertesacker.“We thank Laurent for his contribution to the club and wish him all the best for the future,” Arsenal said in a statement.
25 Jun 2013 Evans bounces back to win Berkshire Trophy Ryan Evans (Wellingborough, Northamptonshire) put the disappointment of not qualifying for the Amateur Championship behind him by winning the Berkshire Trophy at The Berkshire. A closing round of 69 over the Red Course for 279 left him a stroke ahead of Vaughan McCall from New Zealand and two clear of Ryan Fricker (Yelverton, Devon). Evans, a member of the England ‘A’ squad, won the South of England Amateur Championship at Walton Heath last year and has been in good form this season, finishing tied second in the St Andrews Links Trophy and joint third in the French Open Amateur Championship. So a win was on the horizon when he arrived at The Berkshire and an opening 68 over the Red left the 26 year old a shot behind McCall. He was still a shot behind McCall at halfway after both fired 72 over the Blue Course but the Kiwi was joined at the top of the leaderboard by Robbie Busher (Salisbury & South Wilts, Wiltshire), who signed for a best-of-the-day 67 after an opening 72. At that stage Evans was sharing third spot with 2012 British Boys champion Matthew Fitzpatrick (Hallamshire, Yorkshire), who shot 68, but a 70 back on the Red in Round Three saw Evans one ahead as McCall who returned another 72, while Fitzpatrick and Busher fell back with 74 and 78 respectively. The final round was again over the Red with Fricker who returned the best card with 68 for third place, while Evans and McCall both shot 69, leaving the Englishman one clear and the champion. Leading final scores: 279 R Evans (Wellingborough) 68 72 70 69 280 V McCall (New Zealand) 67 72 72 69 281 R Fricker (Yelverton) 73 69 71 68 283 D Timms (Mid Kent) 68 74 70 71 286 T Lawton (Wilmslow) 70 75 68 73, J Shufflebotham (Prestatyn) 69 75 73 69, J Kemp (Woburn) 74 68 72 72 Image copyright: The Sports Journalist
By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsThe L.V. Rogers Bombers tuned up for the upcoming Kootenay AAA playoffs by registering a bronze medal during the 16-team Summerland Rockets High School Boy’s Soccer Tournament last week in the South Okanagan.The Bombers rode the scoring of Luis Loeschnik, Trace Cooke and Ryan Lewis to dump North Peace of Fort St. John 3-1 in the consolation final Friday in Summerland.“I’m very pleased with all the players and impressed that the boys are starting to play the system implemented and it is paying off,” said Bomber coach Jamie Spendlove.Spendlove took over the coaching duties of the Bombers after longtime coach Keith Williams retired.“Even with such a young team they are doing more than fine especially with at least two Grade 9s —Ryan Lewis and Nick Wethal — (who are) starting in games,” Spendlove added.After losing to Guildford Park of Surrey in semi final action 3-1, the Bombers were able to bounce back against the Northern squadNorth Peace got on the scoreboard five minutes into the game forcing the Bombers to take note.LVR tied the game when Loeschnik scored a screamer of a shot into the far top corner from the left side.The Bombers got a break when Trace Cooke caught the North Peace keeper off his goal line, drifting a 40-yard shot into the far side of the net. The goal gave LVR a 2-1 halftime lead.LVR controlled most of the second half giving keeper Cole Sutherland not much work between the pipes.The final goal for LVR came from the penalty spot after Lewis was fouled in the box.“A special mention to Grade 9 midfielder Dylan Bennett, who stepped into a holding midfield position filling the big shoes of (injured) Simon Sheppard quite nicely,” Spendlove said.LVR., losing to the Nelson Innkeepers in the final of the Leo’s Men’s Open City Soccer League, advanced to the playoff round by sweeping division action with wins over Summerland, 1-0, Prince Charles Comets of Creston, 2-1, and Kelowna Secondary Owls, 1-0.Greg Syvertson scored the lone goal for LVR against Summerland while Loeschnik and Lewis rallied the Bombers past the Comets.During a hard-fought game against KSS, Lewis scored the lone goal of the game.The 3-0 mark put the Bombers up against a tough Guildford Park squad.The Bombers had some great chances early to put the pressure on the Fraser Valley team but squandered chances by Cooke and senior Mitch Melanson allowed Guilford to take over the match.Danny Rodman scored the only goal for LVR from inside the box.“The boys are looking forward to the next few weeks where they will be playing friendly games against Trail and Creston, and finally the Provincial play down game against Cranbrook at home,” Spendlove explained.A win in the Kootenay Final and this young group of Bombers advance to the B.C.
