Economic Health: Has Greece Turned a Corner? - SPIEGEL ONLINE

Economic Health: Has Greece Turned a Corner? - SPIEGEL ONLINE | AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
Greece, which took over the European Council presidency on Jan. 1, claims it is returning to economic health and is even expecting modest growth this year. But a closer look raises doubts.
Dylan Lesch's insight:

This articles shows the possible economic recovery in Greece. This effects all of Europe in that, in the article, it says that to help Greece, taxes will be going up throughout Europe, mainly Germany. This has short and long term effects because of the taxes being paid by European citizens will effect their individual spending and that Greece will be able to make an economic recovery.

Dylan Lesch's insight:

This ariticle is about the African people who seek asylum and are protesting the way they are treated. This impacts anyone eho is looking for asylum in Africa and the families of those people. This could have a long term effect if they get the Israeli authorities to treat them better, which would make their asylum process more bearable.

Judge says giant cross must be removed from San Diego mountain

Judge says giant cross must be removed from San Diego mountain | AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
A giant cross that has stood on a Southern California mountain for decades must be removed, a judge ordered this week.
Dylan Lesch's insight:

This scoop relates to geography by showing the barriers in religion in society. Many people are angry that a monument constructed for Korean war vets is being taken down. This event really only effects the people in that community, but I think it could have a long term effect on them since in was built in 1954 and has been there for so long.

UN launches Philippines aid appeal

UN launches Philippines aid appeal | AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
The UN launches a $301m (£190m) appeal to help the Philippines recover from Typhoon Haiyan but four days on, many survivors are still without aid.
Dylan Lesch's insight:

This article shows that the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines will be receiving $301 million in aid. This impacts those who have had their lives changed due to damage from the typhoon. This could have both short and long term effects on those people, they will receive food but they will also receive homes to live in to replace the ones that were destroyed.

U.N. confirms use of chemical weapons in Syria | AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
The United Nations has concluded that chemical weapons have been used in the Syrian conflict.
Dylan Lesch's insight:

This article relates to geography by showing that in different nations, some think it is acceptable to use chemical weapons. The UN has confirmed that they were used in Syria, in August. This affects more than just Syria, now the UN and other countries will have to decide whether something needs to be done about it. This has long term effects on the people of Syria because over 100,000 people have died since the conflict began.

Uncertainty after North Korea announces execution of leader's uncle

Uncertainty after North Korea announces execution of leader's uncle | AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
As the shock sinks in, government officials and analysts are trying to decipher what the brutal move means.
Dylan Lesch's insight:

This article relates to geography because it shows that North Korea's values are much different from our own it the US. If I lived in a small community in North Korea, I would be scared for my life when your learder will execute his own uncle. I believe that this will have a short term effect on North Korea because honestly, they are crazy.
