Jack Kerouac: The Navy Files

Anomalous Microwave Emissions Throughout the Galaxy Caused by Clouds of Spinning Diamonds

Europe needs many more babies to avert a population disaster
Across Europe birth rates are tumbling. The net effect is a ‘perfect demographic storm’ that will imperil economic growth across the continent. When Spanish business consultant Alejandro Macarrón started crunching the numbers behind Spain’s changing demographics, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. “I was astonished,” said Macarrón. “We have provinces in Spain where for every baby […]
