Summary:
Steve Carlton-Ford feels lucky that he and his wife, Cindy, have never had a personal brush with the tragedy of war, nor have any of their three children. But for hundreds of thousands of children around the world, war takes a tragic toll every day and it's their plight that Carlton-Ford, a UC sociologist, felt compelled to focus on in his latest research. The harsh reality his research has found is that war and other less violent armed conflicts raise the mortality rate of children under the age of 5 by at least 35 percent, when countries that have been at peace go to war.

Porsche CEO Says Supercar Is Not Dead: Cue the Spyder 918
