This map shows how Europe's population changed and shifted in the first decade of the 21st century Immigration – I know this sounds unlikely, but bear with us a moment here – is in the news rather a lot at the moment. For one thing, there's the Mediterranean migrant crisis, which EU leaders are meeting to discuss this week. Then there's the non-stop thrill ride of Britain's debate over whether or not it's a good idea to alienate the entirety of the continent just across the English Channel; one of the main arguments put forward by the Eurosceptic and definitely not racist right-wing party UKIP is that pulling out of Europe would give us back control of our borders.

Protecting People.™ The World’s Most Spoken Languages In One Fascinating Infographic Whenever I meet someone of a different ethnicity, out of sheer curiosity, I always ask if they speak the language of their heritage. I was born in Canada, but grew up with Punjabi speaking parents. I also studied French, Japanese, and Korean, and like to see language as almost a binding agent that helps smooth over communication. Business deals can go in a completely different direction if someone knows even a few words of another language, and, let’s be honest, traveling around the world and practicing different words you’ve picked up is fun. Having even a rudimentary understanding of another language also allows you to connect with someone of a different culture much more quickly, and people generally appreciate any efforts of communication in their own tongue.
