    Ricky1024: hey Michael you might be wondering why I haven't reviewed any your work in the past month they banned me from doing that because somebody ripped apart one of my pieces about my dead son and I didn't like that and I responded I want to do children's stories from your children's book and they gave me two stores I gave them one and of course their cities and instead of getting back to me on that the only thing they had to say was I was just going to be reviewing work today so of course they got no balls and I can plan the time I can't remember what he did to the idiot is in their name on the site I didn't had no idea they would stoop that low so since they did do that, course always goes on the side of the person that did that they cried to him okay doesn't matter what's happened or the situation I've already gone through this half a dozen times and he always restrict me from writing on this site and then after you apologize and beg to him then he comes back to you and allows you to right now he hasn't restricted my writing he's just being me from doing reviews okay that meanvoke promote my work with a credit card it stands alone with its give them money from my credit card which I will not and refused to do I won't provoke promote my work with a credit card it stands alone with its abilities I'm sure you would agree I posted on my portfolio about this cruelty and warned fan story writers and another doing reviews they tell you to block the person you can only block 3 people so what if there's a fourth then you have to suck it up and say thank you my friend Liberty justices often stories done a lot for you Ricky you should just apologize so you know what I decided Well let me apologize and see if he'll do anything back that was about 10 days ago I've already responded 3 times and he has not responded back once every time I post a piece they put down for you to promote it which is a joke how can you promote your work when you can't review anybody else's it says right at the end of anybody's work that I want to review that that this account this account cannot do reviews and so I say okay I'm still restricted and band big deal so if I want to read anybody's working review and I have to do it on her portfolio is not amazing just a thought I've already complained about that two or three women have done nothing they have not responded to Tom. Because I've not heard nothing back from Tom so they're afraid to get in trouble and have that happen to them I know you got a set of balls to post a little note you know about how can you restrict them been a world rank Rider off of this site somebody's got over six hundred fifty bucks sitting at his house waiting to publish somebody has been published many times has competed in all over United States and won trophies and plaques and has no worries house have somebody that was World ranked by number three Covington who's who number one writer of all venues 2012 to 2014 he gets free lifetime airfare any place the United States should be banned I told Tom I could care less about this site I write on my own poetry and writing site on Facebook I write on my right on I write on three or four more sites cut and paste my work from fan story cuz that's my main writing site fanstory no longer is my main writing site if an story went broke and shut down today the only thing that would bother me is the fact that all my work is trapped here I've never bothered to go and transfer it out until I get my Yahoo or do anything like like that with it all but it's already copied and written

    l.raven: Overall, the CDC estimates that 12,000 and 61,000 deaths annually since 2010 can be blamed on the flu. Globally, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that the flu kills 290,000 to 650,000 people per year.

    reconciled: By a wide margin, the U.S. has more immigrants than any other country in the world. As of 2015, the United Nations estimates that 46.6 million people living in the United States were not born there. This means that about one-in-five international migrants (19%) live in the U.S. The U.S. immigrant population is nearly four times that of the world?s next largest immigrant destination ? Germany, with about 12 million immigrants.

    (The UN?s figure of 46.6 million includes Puerto Ricans and others born in U.S. territories; they are not counted as immigrants by the U.S. Census Bureau or in most Pew Research Center publications. People born in Puerto Rico and U.S. territories are U.S. citizens at birth. Several other countries such as France, the United Kingdom and China also have territories and special administrative regions which the UN treats as distinct origins and destinations of international migrants.)

    2The U.S.-Mexico migration corridor is the world?s largest. Pew Research Center has extensively studied and attempted to quantify the historic migration route between the U.S. and Mexico. About 12 million people living in the U.S. were born in Mexico, according to UN estimates as of 2015. However, the migration trends between the U.S. and Mexico are changing. Recent Pew Research Center estimates show that more Mexicans are now leaving than coming to the U.S. As a point of comparison, the second largest corridor consists of Indian nationals living in the United Arab Emirates, estimated to be 3.5 million migrants.

    3Compared with other countries receiving immigrants, the share of the U.S. population that is foreign born is modest. About one-in-seven people living in the United States (14%) were born in other countries, a near-historic record. By way of comparison, about one-in-five people in Canada (22%) are foreign born. In Australia, it?s nearly three-in-ten people (28%). And in some Persian Gulf countries such as Qatar (75%) and United Arab Emirates (88%), the great majority of their resident populations are immigrants, many who have been actively recruited as foreign labor.

    4The U.S. immigrant population is not as diverse in origin as those of other countries. Even though the U.S. has immigrants from nearly every country of the world, it doesn?t have the most diverse pool of immigrants. The U.S. has a score of 91 on a 1-to-100 diversity index. By comparison, Denmark and the UK have some of the highest immigrant diversity scores (both 97), followed by Canada at 96. Roughly one-in-four (26%) immigrants in the U.S. come from just one country, Mexico. In several other destination countries (mainly in Europe), immigrants are not as concentrated from a single country or handful of them.

    5The U.S. has a lower number of emigrants ? those who have left ? than 19 other countries, including many with much smaller populations. More than 3 million people who were born in the U.S. now live in other countries, compared with nearly 16 million Indians who are emigrants. About 12 million Mexican-born people live outside of Mexico, mostly in the U.S. Even less-populated countries like Syria (5 million) and Poland (4.4 million) have larger emigrant populations. As a share of the population in 2015, around 1% of Americans born in the United States lived outside of the United States. This is a considerably smaller share than that of other migrant destinations like the UK (8%), Germany (5%) or Canada (4%).
