247 People Killed in an Earthquake in Italy
An earthquake struck central Italy last September, killing at least 247 people and leaving many more missing. Amidst all this chaos and turmoil, Forbes saw record number of billionaires drop off its list – here is who these individuals were and their backgrounds.
Together with CarFinance 24 7, Forever Manchester will launch the 247People Fund to support grassroots community projects in Greater Manchester that fit our criteria of “helping improve people’s everyday lives”.
Early Life and Education
Studies utilizing various empirical methods and data sets have documented robust links between early life conditions and important markers of well-being during childhood, adulthood, and old age. Although their causality remains elusive, it is evident that early-life experiences can have lasting consequences.
Numerous policies directly influence early life conditions. One such policy is the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), which enrolls low-income pregnant women and mothers of newborns who fall below 185% of poverty threshold and who have nutritional risk assessments as assessed through WIC enrollment.
Nurse Home Visiting Partnership (NHVP) provides more targeted assistance to low-income new parents by conducting weekly home visits by trained nurses in child development and parenting skills. NHVP operates as a randomized experiment to enable full causal evaluation of its impact on early-life circumstances.
