Travel has grown exponentially since the 1960s, and tourism employs more people than any other industry. As political developments have opened borders, as new technologies in aviation and communications provide new access, few destinations go unexplored, suggests Becker. The author explains that any human endeavor can be transformed into a travel package, Compartimos artículos aparecidos en las publicaciones de los Estados Unidos y en el Internet, precisando que el gobierno de los Estados Unidos de América no necesariamente coincide con las opiniones vertidas.

religious pilgrimages, medical tourism, education and more. Yet, travel without protections adds stress to the most popular destinations. "Every traveler has a story about a favorite spot transformed by tourists who leave chaos and waste in their wake and government officials who prefer to count short-term benefits of allowing chock-a-block hotels over the long-term costs of environmental degradation." Those who love travel most, including the hosts who earn a living and the travelers, have a responsibility to prevent destruction of cultural, historic and environmental treasures. Health Depression in Low-Income Mothers of Young Children: Are They Getting the Treatment They Need? Urban Institute. Marla McDaniel and Christopher Lowenstein. April 17, 2013. http://www.urban.org/UploadedPDF/412804-Depression-in-Low-IncomeMothers-of-Young-Children.pdf [PDF format, 16 pages, 921.3 KB]. Maternal depression can have severe and lasting consequences for both a mother and her child. The brief uses the National Survey of Drug Use and Health to estimate the prevalence, severity, and treatment of major depression among low-income mothers with young children (ages 0-5). It finds that one out of eleven low-income mothers with young children had a major depressive episode in the past year, and nearly one-third did not report receiving any treatment. While uninsured low-income mothers had much lower treatment rates than insured low-income mothers, rates were comparable across treatment providers, suggesting that Medicaid fills an important gap.

American libraries and library staff continue to respond to the needs of their communities, providing key resources as budgets are reduced, speaking out forcefully against book banning attempts and advocating for free access to digital content in libraries, with a keen focus placed on ebook formats. These and other library trends of the past year are detailed in the report.

Science and Technology Public's Knowledge of Science and Technology. Pew Research Center for the People & the Press.

The public's knowledge of science and technology varies widely across a range of questions on current topics and basic scientific concepts, according to a new quiz by the Pew Research Center and Smithsonian magazine. About eight-in-ten Americans (83%) identify ultraviolet as the type of radiation that sunscreen protects against. Nearly as many (77%) know that the main concern about the overuse of antibiotics is that it can lead to antibiotic-resistant bacteria. However, only about half (51%) of the public knows that "fracking" is a process that extracts natural gas, not coal, diamonds or silicon from the earth. [Note: contains copyrighted material].

The survey report finds high levels of concern about religious extremism among Muslims in the North Caucasus area of Russia and the neighboring Central Asian countries of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. It also finds that few Muslims across the region support the use of violence against civilians in the name of Islam, though there is somewhat more support for suicide bombing and similar violence among Muslims in Kyrgyzstan than in Russia or Kazakhstan.

For the first time in more than four decades of polling on the issue, a majority of Americans favor legalizing the use of marijuana. A national survey finds that 52% say that the use of marijuana should be made legal while 45% say it should not. U.S. Government

pledged jointly up to $30 billion of "fast start" climate financing for lowerincome countries for the period 2010-2012, and a goal of mobilizing jointly $100 billion annually by 2020. The Cancun Agreements also proposed that the pledged funds are to be new, additional to previous flows, adequate, predictable, and sustained, and are to come from a wide variety of sources, both public and private, bilateral and multilateral, including alternative sources of finance.

"Hollowing Out" in U.S. Manufacturing: Analysis and Issues for Congress. Congressional Research Services, Library of Congress. Marc Levinson. April 15, 2013. http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R41712.pdf [PDF format, 17 pages, 364.33 KB]. The health of the U.S. manufacturing sector has been a long-standing concern of Congress. Although Congress has established a wide variety of tax preferences, direct subsidies, import restraints, and other federal programs with the goal of retaining or recapturing manufacturing jobs, only a small proportion of U.S. workers is now employed in factories. Meanwhile, U.S. factories have stepped up production of goods that require high technological sophistication but relatively little direct labor. Labor productivity in manufacturing, as measured by government data, has grown rapidly, suggesting that the manufacturing sector as a whole remains healthy. In the context of national security, the fact that U.S. manufacturers of vital products are critically dependent upon inputs from abroad is frequently a subject of concern. International comparisons indicate that the United States is in no way unique in its dependence on foreign inputs to manufacturing. Although the output of U.S. factories contains a large proportion of foreign value added, many other countries appear to be even more dependent upon foreign value added than is the United States, at least with respect to goods traded in international markets.

Over the past several decades, the United States has delivered financial and technical assistance for climate change activities in the developing world through a variety of bilateral and multilateral programs. The United States and other industrialized countries committed to such assistance through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC, Treaty Number: 102-38, 1992), the Copenhagen Accord (2009), and the UNFCCC Cancun Agreements (2010), wherein the higher-income countries Compartimos artĂ­culos aparecidos en las publicaciones de los Estados Unidos y en el Internet, precisando que el gobierno de los Estados Unidos de AmĂŠrica no necesariamente coincide con las opiniones vertidas.
