The UN’s latest global population statistics were dumped online this week in the form of a huge, impenetrable spreadsheet. What the complex figures obscure is a landmark that has huge consequences for the way we all live: we are about to pass the point where more people on the planet will be above 30 years of age than younger. We have reached ‘peak youth’. The total number of young people in the world is starting to plateau. Today, we have the largest global youth population in history, and this mass will remain for several decades before beginning to shrink later...
TEQUESTA, Fla. (AP) -- Families hoped for a miracle even as science nagged that one was improbable and rescue crews went into a seventh day of searches Thursday for two teens missing at sea. Though it seemed unlikely a medley of agencies would continue their hunts much longer, the Coast Guard, which is leading the effort, insisted it remained an "active and open" case now focused off the South Carolina coastline. "We're still searching," Chief Petty Officer Ryan Doss said Wednesday evening, with no immediate end in sight. Doss called the decision on how...

It is the latest speck of hope in the 16-month search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. On Wednesday, a piece of debris from a plane was found in the Indian Ocean near Reunion, an island about 500 miles east of Madagascar. The object appears to be a wing component — or flaperon — from a passenger jet. See also: MH370: The plane debris photos that everyone's looking at Air safety investigators have a "high degree of confidence" that aircraft debris found in the Indian Ocean is of a wing component unique to the Boeing 777, the same model as the Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared last year, a U.S. official said Wednesday. They have stopped short of confirming it is part of the...

London: Britain and France are scrambling to find ways to stop hundreds of people living in squalid camps in northern France from forcing their way through the Channel Tunnel. For two successive nights, migrants trying to travel illegally to Britain have made more than 1,000 attempts to gain entry to the terminal in France used by trains to make the 35-minute crossing under the English Channel. "Some migrants must have tried several times" to penetrate the site, said Romain Dufour, a Eurotunnel spokesman . "This wasn't a wave; this was many groups, all night long," he added. British ministers and other officials held...
Counter-piracy in the Gulf of Aden could not have been more successful. No commercial ships have been hijacked since 2013, compared with 46 ships in 2010. At the 18th Plenary Session of Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia at the UN headquarters on July 8, 2015, the European Union reiterated its "two zeros" goal for this year - zero ships and zero seafarers in the hands of Somali pirates. This raises two questions: Can the international navies operating in the western Indian Ocean withdraw now? Could the lessons learned from the western Indian Ocean be applied to the Gulf of Guinea and Southeast Asia where piracy is on the rise? On the first question, the fear is piracy will...
