A new report shows that the refugee crisis hasn’t slowed down — and people don’t always end up where you think.

The flow of refugees is steadily increasing, according to the U.N. Refugee Agency (UNHCR). As of mid-2016, there were 16.5 million refugees globally, 5 million more than in mid-2013. More than 30 percent of all refugees as of mid-2016 came from Syria, the largest source of global refugees.

This growing refugee population brings many challenges. Because of school shortages in overcrowded camps, refugee children are five times more likely to be out of school than non-refugee children, reports the UNHCR. Preventable, treatable diseases like diarrhea, measles and malaria threaten the health of refugee children, especially those under 5. And in many cases, parents aren’t able to secure jobs outside the camps to provide an income for their families.

I’m personally getting in my bunker to brace myself for the massive influx of Martial Arcs we’re about to see over the next few days. How about you guys? I also really hope Sun doesn’t die and this is just a case of M/K going nuts with the near-death trigger… Qrow won’t die tho. He gucci. Ren and Nora probablyyyyyy have maybe death flags, but I’m not sure. The hug was weird ok?

What do Democrats in West Virginia and Republicans in California have in common? Many likely knew that their presidential election votes wouldn’t “count.”

Of course, these votes were counted, but anyone with a minimal knowledge of U.S. politics could have guessed that California would vote Democratic in the presidential election (Clinton won it by 29 points) and that West Virginia would go Republican (Trump won by nearly 42 points).

And because of the United States’ peculiar electoral college system, in which the winner takes all the electoral votes in all but two states, all the California Trump votes and West Virginia Clinton votes didn’t really matter much. So voters in those states might have reasonably shrugged and stayed home on Election Day.

The data suggest this may be happening. Of 15 states that NPR labeled as battlegrounds or leaning states in its final battleground map, 12 had turnout rates above the national rate — 58.4 percent of the voting-eligible population.
