Their bodies and minds are not designed to live forever. Ifpeople lived forever, the planet would be overcrowded in no time.It took us a long time for people to have an average lifespan of 75years, with some people living to be 100, or in case of a Frenchwoman, 120 years old. The sun will go nova so…meday and burn up theearth. Nothing last forever. Nothing lives forever. Sooner or laterwe all have to die. That is the way the universe works. However,there are still a lot of unanswered questions by scientists thatmay lead a reasonable person to doubt whether we can live foreveror not. If there is a Creator, and you believe the bible, thereason we do not live forever is because of imperfection (in ourphysical bodies) that will be fixed by our Great Designer (God)and, as long as we exercise faith in Jesus Christ sacrifice (thegreatest gift to humankind) our redeemer, we can be saved (liveforever). . +++ . Not sure why the above ends in a sermon that starts with aconditional opinion then tells us God has cocked up human "design"- if so, he's taking a long time to put us right! More seriously,you don't need to be a scientist or for that matter religious, toknow that no living organism or natural feature lasts forever.That's not a matter of doubt! (MORE)
mostly because its really hot and there's no water and they cant survive with out water food and they can spoil because its so hot Traditionally no one has because of the lack of resources (water, food, shelter, etc). Today there are only people in desert regions that also live in major cities or to…wns which have resources, very few people would live outside of those places. (MORE)

There are 390 square feet for every person on Manhattan, not including the other boroughs. \nI got this information by finding the square mileage of Manhattan and its population from the Wikipedia page on Manhattan, here:\nhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan\n. \nThen, I used this converter to c…onvert the square miles to square feet:\nhttp://www.metric-conversions.org/area/square-miles-to-square-feet.htm\n. \nOf course, this doesn't take into account that much of Manhattan is above and below ground, so in reality there is much more than 390ft/sq per person. Notwithstanding, Manhattan is nowhere near as dense as Tokyo. (MORE)
The number of people that live on islands depends on the island.Some islands are hugely populated (such as Australia). Otherislands have no human inhabitants at all.

Many people do live in Western Australia. Perth is an attractiveand livable city, with a population of over 1.47 million. WesternAustralia itself recorded the highest growth in population, withMarch 2008 statistics indicating that population had grown by 2.6%over the previous twelve months, in compa…rison to that of the restof Australia, where population growth averaged 1.6% over the sameperiod of time. . There is, perhaps, a sense that Western Australia is isolatedfrom the rest of the continent, as it is thousands of kilometresbetween the western and eastern coasts. This tends to give theerroneous perception that not many people live there. Also, much ofthe state is desert, so the population is sparser throughout theinterior. . Like South Australia, WA's population is heavily concentrated inthe south. North of Perth there are relatively few large towns,with large distances between them. This gives the impression thestate is very underpopulated (which by world standards, it is). (MORE)

I assume the question is referring to the total number of people in the US without health *insurance* rather than health *care*. According to a US Census Bureau report from September 2009 (based on 2008 data), there are 46.3 million persons without health insurance in the United States.
Population at the 2002 census was 3,791 (3,304 in Hanga Roa alone). 60% were Rapanui, Chileans of European or castizo descent were 39% of the population, and the remaining 1% were Native Americans from mainland Chile. Castizos may include people of European and Rapanui or European, Native American, …and Rapanui descent. Rapanui have also migrated out of the island. At the 2002 census, 2,269 Rapanui lived on Easter Island, while 2,378 lived in the mainland of Chile (half of them in the metropolitan area of Santiago). Population density on Easter Island is only 23 inhabitants per kmÂ² (60 per sq mi), much lower than in the 17th century heyday of the moai building when there were possibly as many as 15,000 inhabitants, or roughly 92 inhabitants per kmÂ² (214 per sq mi).

Human beings have parts that wear out. Some say that every day a person lives, starting at birth, is one day closer to their death--and it's true. By the time a person reaches 40-50 years old, some parts begin to show wear and tear. We have: achy bones; sore muscles; trouble digesting foods; gallb…ladders don't function as well; our vision and hearing declines; even our skin starts to get drier and less elastic. By the time people are 50-60 years old, most are taking 5 or more medications. (MORE)

Because they are surrounded by water, making them rely on themselves a bit more than larger countries, like the US for example. Also there are a lot of different resources such as sand and coconut trees, and a lot of islands have weekly rituals, such as the "Sex Go-er" on an island South of Australi…a. In that ritual, islanders walk around naked and take turns feeling each others genitalia. (MORE)

Many times an island meal consists of the local fruit and vegies. But, just cause there on an island doesn't mean they cant still grill food like burgers and hot dogs.

When people imagine life on an island, they usually picturesolitude and being alone. However, in the real world, this isdifferent. An island owner will have neighbours and will need toget by boat to a point at the mainland. The owner will need to buyfuel and food, visit repair stations, postal servi…ce, pharmacy,doctor, etc. If you want to obtain a building permit or a permit tobuild a wharf, obtain quotes from electricity companies, telephone,etc., you are part of the community. Ideally, you must blend intothis social environment. Therefore, the rental of an island in the immediate area is highlyrecommended. Renting an island for a week or two will answer manyquestions.We try to concentrate on safe areas but almost daily, weare asked by interested parties whether we can report anypiracy/crime incidents in that area. In almost all cases, islandare very safe. However, certain incidents involving crime have taken place,especially in areas where drug trafficking is rife. Of course, insuch areas, special care must be taken. Normally, island owners donot furnish their homes with very expensive items, so they do notbecome targets for any unwelcome visitors. A thief certainly wouldreconsider the risk of becoming a prisoner on the island. It isprobably "safer" for a thief to concentrate on a mainland property.Again, by renting an island in the area, the neighbours and localswill be able to provide you with a deeper insight to that specificarea.

Unless you're looking for a job, there's no particular reason foryou to have a resume or for anyone to care whether you do or not.It's not something that anyone keeps statistics on, so it's notpossible to answer the question.
I would bet that most of those apparently un-named islands DO havenames, but they are simply not important enough to be named onregular maps that most of us see. I would expect most of them areon naval charts and possibly even large scale maps of thePhillipines.
