7th Billion Baby Born In Philippines

Not Mine! cry half a dozen expats in Angeles City!

 

The world’s symbolic 7 billionth baby was born on the weekend and brings the Filipino population to just over 94.9 million, officially. The delivery room was packed with reporters, relatives, UN officials and even the 6th billionth baby, now 12, not to mention the father, mother and a mid-wife. The child gets a scholarship and the parents a grant to start a sari sari store and of course, world wide fame. If the world increased by 1 billion in just 12 years from 6 to 7 billion, how long will it take to make it to 8 billion?
