Option 3: Independent Living & the Elderly

Much has been studied and written about how the elderly can live independently. (See for example: Recently, some people have formed “villages” to cope with the many aspects of aging that may compromise one’s ability to live independently. After reviewing NPR’s series on Aging at Home (, comment on the most critical aspects of “village life” that are likely to shape the future of our society in important ways. These may be economic (including health care delivery and its costs), intellectual (continuing education and the use of “brain games” and the like) or architectural (e.g., the design of houses and neighborhoods) or other themes of life.
Option 1: Family Leave

The USA is among the worst of all nations when it comes to mandating family leave upon the birth or adoption of a child.

See for example:

What can you find out about the current state of The Family and Medical Insurance Leave Act (FAMILY), as it was introduced to Congress in December 2013 and already well-established in some states like California?

What about paternal leave ? Where is the U.S vs other nations on this matter?
