On the other hand, in sub-Saharan Africa, where overall levels of religious commitment are among the highest in the world, there is no significant difference between older and younger adults in terms of the importance of religion in 17 out of 21 countries surveyed.

Age gaps are also more common within some religious groups than in others. For example, religion is less important to younger Christian adults in nearly half of all the countries around the world where sample sizes are large enough to allow age comparisons among Christians (37 out of 78). For Muslims, this is the case in about one-quarter of countries surveyed (10 out of 42). Among Buddhists, younger adults are significantly less religious in just one country (the United States) out of five countries for which data are available. There is no age gap by this measure among Jews in the U.S. or Israel, or among Hindus in the U.S. or India. 1

The widespread pattern in which younger adults tend to be less religious than older adults may have multiple potential causes. Some scholars argue that people naturally become more religious as they age; to others, the age gap is a sign that parts of the world are secularizing (i.e., becoming less religious over time). (For a detailed discussion of theories about age gaps and secularization, see Chapter 1 .)

But even if parts of the world are secularizing, it is not necessarily the case that the world’s population, overall, is becoming less religious. On the contrary, the most religious areas of the world are experiencing the fastest population growth because they have high fertility rates and relatively young populations.

show that if current trends continue, countries with high levels of religious affiliation will grow fastest. The same is true for levels of religious commitment: The fastest population growth appears to be occurring in countries where many people say religion is very important in their lives.

These are among the key findings of a new Pew Research Center analysis of surveys collected over the last decade in 106 countries. The data analyzed in this report come from 13 different Pew Research Center studies, including annual Global Attitudes Surveys as well as major studies on religion in Cheap High Quality Boyfriend Distressed Ankle Jeans MISS ME With Paypal Online Recommend For Sale Get Authentic Online mHZmu

; the United States ; Central and Eastern Europe ; and Western Europe .

The number of countries analyzed varies by measure and type of comparison. While data are available for as many as 106 countries depending on the measure, the number of countries with reliable data on a particular religious group depends on the size of that group in each country’s sample. For example, there are sufficient data to gauge the importance of religion among Christians in 84 countries, and the sample sizes are large enough to compare responses among older and younger Christians in 78 of those 84 countries.

St Albans Abbey has been confirmed as one of England's early Norman cathedrals after experts uncovered foundations of the early church.

Remains forming part of the early Norman abbey have been identified after foundations of the 11th Century church were revealed during excavation.

Site director Ross Lane said: "We knew it was probably there but this confirms it."

Other Norman cathedrals in the UK include Durham and Canterbury.

The Hertfordshire abbey is dedicated to Britain's first saint, St Alban - a citizen of Roman Verulamium - who was martyred by the Romans.

The first church at the site was probably a simple structure over St Alban's grave, making this the oldest site of continuous Christian worship in Britain.

The Canterbury Archaeological Trust has been excavating the site since August, ahead of the construction of a new visitor centre.

"[Our find shows] that it was and is an important site of premier status," Mr Lane said.

"One of our major aims was to confirm its presence and confirm the abbey was one of the early Norman cathedrals."

'100% archaeology'

Mr Lane said the team had also found the bodies of about 25 potential benefactors and inhabitants of the abbey from the 11th and 12th centuries.

"They are clustered close to the walls in tile-lined tombs. I think it was probably a great honour to be buried as close as possible to the blessed church," he said.

Further research will now try to establish who they were.

Work has now finished and the visitor centre build can begin. Mr Lane said it had been "fantastic".

"We've been able to do 100% of the archaeology, we've been able to excavate everything in the footprint of the new centre," he said.

"We've only gone about a metre down but everything's happened there - there's 1,000 years of history in a metre of earth."

The visitor centre is due to open in June 2019.

In The Vineyard – Grapes, Drones and Awards

By Abra Bennett

WALLA WALLA, Wash. — The grape harvest nears as our hot Walla Walla Valley summer draws to a close. The ripe fruit clusters and leafy vines look primordial, timeless. And indeed, grapes have been grown and crushed into wine for at least the past 6,000 years.

But for 99.9% of that time, no drones have been involved.

Although some things about the relationship between soil, water, sunlight and grape vines would still look familiar to a grape grower in 4000 B.C., the times they are a changin’ in Walla Walla Community College’s Stan Clarke Vineyard and College Cellars.

Last summer, the college’s enology and viticulture program hired Joel Perez as its new Director of Viticulture. This month he was named one of Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers for 2017, an annual award recognizing the most influential members of the wine industry’s next generation.

“We are definitely trying to make the WWCC viticulture program a center of excellence,” Perez said. “I want to push the limits of what we can do in Washington viticulture and promote forward thinking.”

When he came to Washington in August 2011 he brought with him 10 years of Marine Corps service, and degrees from Washington State University Tri-Cities in Richland: a B.S. in viticulture and enology and a M.S. in horticulture with an emphasis on grapevine physiology. While at WSU Perez tackled several problems unique to the Pacific Northwest wine industry, including virus identification, irrigation and water management, rootstock trials and late-season grape dehydration.

The first change he made in the WWCC vineyard was the installation of a water monitoring system donated by the John Deere company, which wanted a demonstration site for its technology. The system consists of a weather station, a five-foot moisture probe, a wetness sensor and a solar panel. Using this system and his phone, Perez can tell at any time how much water is in the soil profile down to five feet deep. He can access wind speed and direction, relative humidity, calculated solar radiation and growing degree days.

Once the water monitoring system was installed, Perez learned that John Deere was investing in a new agricultural drone and wanted another demonstration site. The first drone flight over the WWCC vineyard revealed a divot running down the center of the vineyard’s Bordeaux block, a subtle elevation difference that had gone unnoticed. At the same time, coincidentally, viticulture students were doing insect scouting and discovered a small outbreak of blister mites. As it turned out, the infestation occurred exactly along the line of the divot revealed by the drone. This effect is still unexplained.

They've been together for the past five years and appear to be happier than ever.

But Jane Fonda has revealed that her relationship with record producer Richard Perry nearly ended before it began, when she discovered he wasn't taking his Parkinson's Disease diagnosis seriously.

Writing on her blog, Jane, said she decided to give Perry an ultimatum, after deciding she couldn't stay in a relationship with someone who wasn't treating his health with the respect it deserved.

She explained: 'I told him, "Richard, if you don’t take your disease seriously and become an expert in it so you know what your options are, I’m not hanging around." '

Jane also revealed that when she had her first date with Perry, now 71, she couldn't believe he was suffering from the debilitating condition, because he looked so 'strong'.

She wrote: ' I knew it was a disease with no cure – but he seemed so strong.'

Jane added that at the pair's first meeting, she wasn't inclined to worry too much about his health because she didn't forsee the relationship going the distance.

She said: ' It’s a funny thing about Richard – he tends to laugh when confronted with challenges. He also said he would lick the Parkinson’s.

'I said to myself, "No he won’t. There won’t be a cure in his lifetime". But I didn’t pay it much heed. After all, it was just a date.'
