  1. 1. The positive effects of social media on society 1. Planning: a. Brainstorming: - News,  - More pollution,  - Less training opportunities,  - Health care costs increase,  - More pensioners, - Special challenges for less developed nations, - Increasing need for specialized health care workers, - Increasing need for long-term care, - Pension schemes will be affected,  - A rise in age-related chronic illnesses. 
  2. 2. b. Outlining Thesis statement: The effects of increased longevity on our society would adversely affect the population, economy, and health. I. Population 1. Some areas of the world would become more overcrowded. 2. More polluted urban slums, creating an urgent need for clean water. II. Economy 1. Pensions and retirement income need to cover a longer period of time. 2. Less training opportunities because of people that would work longer than usual. III. Health 1. Health care costs would increase. 2. A rise in age-related chronic illnesses. Conclusion: I think it is a very complicated problem, and it is difficult to find a solution to this problem in the short term. Nevertheless, I believe that people are going to find the solution to this problem if the government, economist and scientists help to find it.
  3. 3. c. Collecting information: - Some areas of the world would become more overcrowded, while others will stay about the same. Most of the population increase would take place in less developed countries and would be concentrated among the poorest people living in cities. (Regina Boyle Wheeler who is a journalist that specializes in health, parenting, and lifestyle content) (I. 1) - This problem would produce more polluted urban slums, creating an urgent need for clean water and improvements in sanitation. (Regina B. Wheeler). (I.2) - Heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases would cause more death and illness worldwide than infectious or parasitic diseases because the number of people who suffers those illnesses are going to increase. (Lindsey Marcellin who is an internal medicine specialist with extensive clinical experience in multiple practice settings) (III.2)
  4. 4. - As older people stop working and their health care needs increase, governments could be overwhelmed by unprecedented costs. How to pay for the upcoming elder boom would be a subject being debated in capitals around the world. (According to an OECD report) (III.1) - This problem would affect pension schemes in two ways: pensioners will be more numerous and they would claim benefits over a much longer period than at present. One of the biggest challenges will be to guarantee adequate income for old people without creating an unbearable load for the younger age groups. (Adriana Scardino who is an economist) (II.1) - Ageing has a direct impact on the labour market, since improvements in life expectancy affect individual behaviour in deciding to remain in work longer. (Adriana Scardino) (II.2)
  5. 5. 2. Writing: Population ageing, which is a process that increases the proportion of old people within the total population, is one of the main problems of this century. It affects or will affect both developed and developing countries.The effects of increased longevity on our society would adversely affect the population, economy, and health. Population would be affected because some areas of the world would become more overcrowded and there would be more polluted urban slums, creating an urgent need for clean water. Regina Boyle Wheeler who is a journalist said that some areas of the world would become more overcrowded, while others will stay about the same. Most of the population increase would take place in less developed countries and would be concentrated among the poorest people living in cities. Futhermore, This problem would produce more polluted urban slums, creating an urgent need for clean water and improvements in sanitation. Pollution has been one of the most critical problems in the world for many years and that is why the need has arisen awareness of finding alternatives for possible solutions. There would be some economical effects as pensions and retirement income need to cover a longer period of time and less training opportunities because of people that would work longer than usual. According to Adriana Scardino who is an economist, this problem would affect pension schemes in two ways: pensioners will be more numerous and they would claim benefits over a much longer period than at present. One of the biggest challenges will be to guarantee adequate income for old people without creating an unbearable load for the younger age groups. Besides, Ageing has a direct impact on the labour market, since improvements in life expectancy affect individual behavior in deciding to remain in work longer.
  6. 6. Health also is going to be affected because health care costs would increase and there will be a rise in age-related chronic illnesses. Lindsey Marcellin who is an internal medicine specialist said that as older people stop working and their health care needs increase, governments could be overwhelmed by unprecedented costs. How to pay for the upcoming elder boom would be a subject being debated in capitals around the world. Moreover, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases would cause more death and illness worldwide than infectious or parasitic diseases because the number of people who suffers those illnesses are going to increase. I think it is a very complicated problem, and it is difficult to find a solution to this problem in the short term. Nevertheless, I believe that people are going to find the solution to this problem if the government, economist and scientists help to find it.
