and wealth it comes only behind new york the latest government official more than twenty percent of the population lives in poverty so crippled from home co. like most year old alice hands nightly chores include homework but space is limited she and her mother share this tiny subdivided one bedroom flat they live on a six hundred dollar monthly welfare payment but with rent at four hundred fifty dollars is not always enough left to put food on the table. i have to think a lot before buying anything sometimes i eat less or skip meals so that she can eat well you see she's quite skinny maybe she doesn't get enough nutrition it's an increasingly familiar trend in hong kong soaring property prices have pushed up rent squeezing the most vulnerable the latest government figures for twenty six danish oh twenty percent of the population live below the poverty line is not
possible the total. but there isn't a need to do is all right we can say we can't you limit the poverty situation and we do nothing the wealth gap between rich and poor in hong kong is also at its highest level in more than four decades according to the latest government data ten percent of the city and now earning forty four times that of the poorest households who have an average income of three hundred twenty dollars a month there are now around one million people struggling to get by in hong kong while the elderly i consider the most vulnerable welfare groups say one in every five children are now living in poverty and a quarter of those are not getting access to basic food aid. welfare groups say education is also a challenge with poor families being forced to sacrifice food to send their children to school education system score required require them to pay a lot so so they don't they have to save their money to pay discount are spent each

generate by adopting what we call a humane economy where and now live elephant is of greater economic value to the country than a dead one i mean it's been proven time and time again that a live elephant is seventy six times more beneficial economically to a country than a dead elephant so what's happening is this is just an opportunity for these very wealthy hunters that supported the trump trump presidency to basically get a payback because there's no benefit to the elephants and there's no benefit to the people in those communities and it's one of those just need to be overturned really does two thousand and fifteen was a first first year that the number of elephants killed out there were higher than the number of elephants that were born and so that disparity continues to happen there is a rapid reduction in the number of elephants that are still living and what's happening what a lot of people don't think about is that in the hunt if they go after the bull elephants and bull elephants typically have more ivory that's of greater impact to elephant hers and anything else you could have you know three thousand female
elephants but if you destroyed and killed all the mela since they can't procreate which is why you're seeing a drastic decline in the number of elephants that are being born then you much anticipated museum as the bible has now officially is and in washington d.c. christian and jewish clerics live there full of the opening of the five hundred million dollar installation overnight to say it takes an inclusive look at one of the most important books ever with and she have a ton z. takes a toll. house with those for the him who zing museum of the bible was provided by steven green a hardline christian fundamentalist he successfully chose a provision of obamacare that requires employers to offer birth control to their employees as part of their health insurance despite green's religious views those at the museum's lunch were adamant we are respectful and invite them all we do not choose one tradition over another. it is divided as to whether that is the case the curators argued that they were able to dilute their benefactors initial wish only
to evangelize his christian beliefs and to be more inclusive of catholicism and judaism for example there are still omissions there here in the impact of the bible in the world gallery their addresses adorned with crosses but there's no mention of the bible's relationship with other religions like islam for example eventually we were able to find mention of the biblical connection between the two faiths and this is this is it it's the smallest of. scholars say this fits the museum's main narrative the bible is almost identical in their mind essentially american products so as they look at the bible they look at it as judaism first then catholicism and now. sort of no recognition that there were other things. it's not as if the museum was just a few blocks away on washington d.c.'s national mall don't also have singular
narratives the smithsonian's museums here deliver a message of american exceptionalism and manifest destiny even the recently opened national museum of african-american history designed to fill in some of the more glaring gaps in the smithsonian's narrative has been accused of black triumphalism presenting the black experience in the us as a constant march forward to contemporary emancipation. the influence of corporations and billionaires on these narratives is also evident most notoriously at the natural history museum where a gallery of human development that happens to be sponsored by a fossil fuel billionaire suggests climate change is simply an opportunity for humans to evolve and improve so the museum of the bible provides just one more lavishly presented narrative among washington d.c. is renowned museums to be interpreted critically and not necessarily literally she . washington.
