This is a very interesting article about the changes in geography in the Artic.

 

Although other places in the Artic are melting, the sea ice of Antartica is growing-in fact, it might reach it's highest this year.

These changes can be explained by the strong "polar vortex" that swirls in the South Pole.

Kaleigh & Lauren:)'s curator insight, April 13, 2014 10:47 PM

Religion:  Religion in africa is different than some might see.  Christian and Islam are just among the minorities.  Traditional African Religion is much more than some give credit for.  10% of the population still practice this religion full time.  Their expressions are found in oral traditions.  They believe in a supreme being who created and ordered the world, but experienced as distant and unreachable.

Rebecca!Morgan Geography's insight:

This article explains the flaws of education in South Africa, putting it in the Intellectual category. Children drop out of the meager schools, and there is very little order of system for teachers to follow. Instead they discuss topics sometimes unrelated to education - the schools  are not monitored and very few students pass.

-Morgan

Peter Bryan's curator insight, February 9, 2014 8:56 AM

    This article focuses on how education in South Africa is not at a very high standard. Many children are getting very low grades, or dropping out of school early. It talks about some of the many causes in this article. One cause is that teachers don't always teach in their lessons, and there is no one monitoring them to stop them from going completely off topic. One of the reasons that teachers are often very bad is that they lack the education needed to teach. A second reason for the poor education and many dropouts is that there are lots of outside distractions. A large problem is teen pregnancy, which causes girls to need to leave school. Another problem is that many of the students parents in South Africa lack a simple education, so they are unable to help and support their children as well as people with better educations can. 

    This article helps me understand Africa in a very useful way. It helped because, in class we learnt about how in some countries in Africa people focus on education a lot. However, this article helps to show that education is not as important as it is in other countries. Also, it helped me see that even in quite developed African countries, there are still education problems.

    I think that the topic in the article is a very important one. I believe that everyone should have access to a decent education, and this is not what is happening in South Africa. I think that the government should look into the education of the children of South Africa, to make it better, and give children a fairer chance at life.

This article is connected to "religion" because it states all the the unbalanced qualities of Australia's church and religious beliefs. They are still under determination of establishing a church in Australia and the only thing stopping them is section 116 in the legislative branch. Australia is unlike many in their category of religion, religious beliefs, and their practices.
