To spend less in your bedding

  • OSLO Bears John Timu Jersey , Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- The nature of neighbourhood where children grow up in affects their chances in future, newspaper Aftenposten reported Sunday.

    The report finds that in the Oslo area of Nedre Toyen, two out of three children live in poor families, while just several steps from there, in the Kampen area, the proportion is one in five.

    Citing a recent research Bears Mitch Unrein Jersey , Aftenposten wrote that the differences in child poverty in different areas of Oslo appeared to be far greater than the variations between the districts themselves.

    While in three areas in the borough of Gamle Oslo more than 50 percent of the children grow up in poor families, in the western areas the same applies to only 5 percent of them.

    "One can be alarmed by looking at the numbers in some of the areas. It is bad when 64 percent of the children in Nedre Toyen grow up below the poverty line. This reproduces social inequalities in the area," Ingar Brattbakk, researcher at the Work Research Institute (AFI) told Aftenposten.

    Brattbakk and his colleague Bengt Andersen have made a report on neighborhood effects.

    They concluded that the place that children grow up in has a meaning of itself for their opportunities later in life.

    The report reviews both Norwegian and international research on the neighborhood effect.

    "It would be going too far to say that you get poor by living in a poor area. However, living in an area with many neighbors who have poor living conditions, low income and education reduces one's chances in life Bears Nick Kwiatkoski Jersey ," Brattbakk said.

    According to the report, there has been much research on family background and the importance of school in Norway, but much less on the impact of neighborhoods and close environment.

    The report has, among other things, shown that children and adolescents from families holding a lower socioeconomic position are more affected by the neighborhood than those who come from homes where parents have higher education and income.

    The higher the proportion of upper-class parents in the neighborhoods of young people, the bigger is the likelihood for youths themselves to take up elite education and achieve an upper-class position in adulthood Bears Josh Bellamy Jersey , the researchers concluded.

    "The neighborhood is an important arena for development of what is called 'social and cultural capital', which in everyday language means good network, such as contacts that can help you get a job as an adult or language and skills that make it easier to succeed at school," Brattbakk said.

    Child poverty is particularly high among certain immigrant groups, but almost half of the children in low income families are ethnic Norwegian, Aftenposten wrote.

    "There are many good measures described in the government's strategy against child poverty Bears Marcus Cooper Jersey , but many of them are primarily about relieving rather than counteracting social inequality," Brattbakk stated.

    Mari Trommald, director of Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs (Bufdir), expressed worry about increasing differences in child poverty in Oslo districts.

    "We are worried that development is going the wrong way. The figures show that in a few years poverty has grown even bigger in suburbs where it was also great five years ago. In many of the western districts it is the opposite," she said.

    Poor children are at greater risk of less education Bears Tom Compton Jersey , falling outside the workplace and getting worse health than other children. This effect is enhanced when they also live in neighborhoods where many others struggle with the same problems, Trommald said.

    Other Norwegian cities also have high child poverty, but Oslo is in a special position, Aftenposten reported.

    Alna district of Oslo has as many children in poor families as the entire municipality of Trondheim together and four of the districts in Oslo each have significantly more children in poor families than total number in Stavanger.

    BEIJING Bears Dion Sims Jersey , Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- China's property market held broadly steady in November with home prices edging down in major cities amid tough purchase restrictions and a tight liquidity environment, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Monday.

    New residential house prices went down on a yearly basis in 11 of the 15 major cities, considered the "hottest markets." On a month-on-month basis, new residential housing prices fell in 7 of the 15 cities, while Beijing, Shanghai Bears Quintin Demps Jersey , Zhengzhou and Wuhan saw prices flat with October.

    NBS statistician Liu Jianwei said that housing prices stayed generally stable in major cities as differentiated control policies continued to take effect.

    In first-tier cities where the curbs are strictest, home prices continued to soften, with new residential housing and second-hand home prices down 0.1 percent and 0.2 percent, respectively, from a month earlier.

    In contrast, the property market in second- and third-tier cities is showing signs of picking up Bears Mike Glennon Jersey , with new residential housing prices gaining 0.5 percent and 0.4 percent, respectively, from October.

    The data provides evidence that government cooling measures to prevent asset bubbles in the property market are producing the desired outcomes.

    Since late last year, dozens of local governments have passed or expanded restrictions on house purchases and increased the minimum downpayment required for mortgages.

    The property market was also cooled by relatively tightened liquidity conditions as th Nowadays, everyone has .
