"When the actual dependency ratio of pension insurance gets down to three to one, the payment cannot be lower than 17 percent. If it drops to two to one ratio, it means that everyone is going to pay 25 percent. The financial burden gets heavier when the dependency ratio gets lower. The restructuring of pension system must be finalized in two years." Yang said.

Arthritis and Joint Conditions
If you are experiencing arthritis or other musculokeletal symptoms, ask your primary care physician if you should see one of our rheumatologists.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the joints that is very common. In fact, most people experience some degree of osteoarthritis later in life. Osteoarthritis results from cartilage within the joints that has deteriorated during the aging process. Any joint in the body can develop osteoarthritis, but the most common joints to develop the disease are the knees, hips, lower back, neck, and hands. Osteoarthritis symptoms include pain and stiffness from inflammation.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease. In autoimmune disease, the body attacks its own tissues and causes inflammation. The inflammation then causes pain and stiffness, which limits the range of motion in the joints. In some people, the joints swell and become misshapen. Fever also can develop in some people with RA. RA is more serious than osteoarthritis. It affects 1 in every 100 Americans. It is more common in women than in men. The condition is believed to be genetic in many cases.
Psoriatic arthritis is a joint condition that often accompanies psoriasis, a chronic skin condition that causes red areas to develop on the skin.

Yes. Mr Meade is the candidate of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI. His main rival is the hard leftist Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a passionate orator who can work a crowd. Mr Meade has a lot to overcome: he will have to convince voters that they can trust him, after he put up petrol prices by 20 per cent overnight in January, triggering a surge in inflation. He will also have to reveal himself as his own man, not just a clone of an unpopular government that has failed spectacularly to rein in rampant corruption and crime. But backed by the formidable PRI get-out-the-vote machine, he could prove unstoppable. In Mexico’s one-round-only system, 30 per cent of the vote might be enough.
Bursitis is inflammation of a fluid-filled sac (or bursa) that surrounds joints and tendons. The bursa cushions muscles or tendons from the bones and decreases friction as you move. The elbows, hips, knees, and shoulders are the most common joints to develop bursitis. An injury or repetitive movement over a long period of time may cause bursitis.
