I included this article because it shows how people from these LDCs can stand out against discrimination. Anyone who thinks that everyone in LDCs are against gender inequality should see this article. This relates to HTS by showing some brave people living in LDCs willing to stand up against gender discrimination.

'Airpocalypse' China cannot rely on an industrial revolution solution | The Globe and Mail

'Airpocalypse' China cannot rely on an industrial revolution solution | The Globe and Mail | AP Human Geography | Scoop.it

The term “airpocalypse” has been widely and fittingly applied to Beijing. Images of barely visible skylines, masked citizens and uncannily quiet streets, where pollution levels surge beyond dangerous to “off index,” have shown the pervasiveness and virulence of the problem.

 

In many respects, the tale of Beijing is a variation on industrialization themes that go back to the origins of the industrial revolution. A “green” industrial revolution has never occurred anywhere on Earth.

 

Although comparisons can be tricky, Beijing is roughly to the 21st century what London was to the 19th – the capital of the world’s fastest-rising industrial power of its time.


Death by outdoor air pollution in the U.K. was not solely a plague of industrializing Victorian England or Charles Dickens’ London. Suffocating smog, or “peasoupers” as they were often called, gripped London and claimed lives until at least the 1950s.

 

The Great Smog of 1952 is believed to have caused as many as 4,500 deaths in one week at its peak and about 12,000 in the following months.

 

The West therefore should be very careful when chastising China (and other emerging economies) over their pollution levels, at the risk of being guilty of double standards.

Megan Becker's curator insight, May 26, 2015 11:54 PM

Summary: This article stresses the important of gender equality, especially in the modern world where gender equality is still ,for some reason, still a huge problem. Unequal pay, opportunities, and expectations plague woman globally, no matter their countries economic or political stability.

 

Insight: The fact that gender equality is still an ongoing problem astounds me. Some of the world's greatest contributors are women, and the world could not exist without them. This article beautifully puts up and argument that "for the world to thrive, women have to thrive".

MELBOURNE: Popular search engine Google has revealed that widespread gender inequality is still a global problem.

To substantiate this view, it points to a new ad campaign from UN women, which highlights how bigoted and outdated views about women still are, even in the domain of cyberspace.

The ad campaign shows real suggested search terms that arrive from Google's auto-complete feature, which denounces sex equality, News.com.au reports.

Anson Bidwelll's curator insight, December 5, 2013 8:47 PM

This is on my page to show how gender inequality is still prevalent across the developed world. Anyone who thinks that gender inequality is not prevalent across the world should read this. It relates to HTS because it relates to the issue of gender inequality.

Sirila Padi's curator insight, December 5, 2013 9:12 PM

This article appears on my page because I think the fact that Google revealing that widespread gender inequality is such a huge issue helps display awareness for individuals. We see how more and more people are realizing this which means that more and more people will start making efforts into changing gender inequality.  I think all individuals will benefit from reading this because the more that read it means that the more that will have some type of sympathy or will want to make changes to the world. It relates  specifically to our reading of Half the Sky because gender inequality is such a major issue. We see how it affects these girls in such a negative way that it makes us really want to help change whats going on. It time to let the World know that Women are great and can accomplish just as much. Men and Women are equal. Its not what gender your born into. It's what you do with your life is what stands out.

This is cool.  Instead of aggregating the data at the country level and comparing countries, we can see differences in local levels of human development.  Students see patterns of socio-economic and development vividly, and in an intensely local way tailored to their regional frame of reference.

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, November 6, 2013 2:13 AM

This image communicates the importance of agriculture and marketplace relativity. in an area where transportation is minimal and people happen to be more more poorer then need to supply needed resources in a timely manner is very important. Farmers and resource providers need to be close enough geographically. This image shows an outside clothing and food market were people get to shop around and choose in a convientent ways there most needed items. The umbrella suggests rain as the child and other shoppers are being covered. This outdoor market doesnt necessarily suggest poverty but a wide range of population given a convenient location to buy goods quikcly and efficiently. The market may be located in a urban downtown area or also a village central area. Regardless the location, and goods provided shows the valuable commodities need to be provided in a manner, freshest possible for delivery.

It is said that locally grown food can have more nutritional value than organic if the latter comes from thousands of miles away. If you had to choose, which would you rather have, locally grown or organic? 

Megan Becker's curator insight, March 23, 2015 7:30 PM

Summery: This article shares the importance and relevance of the Von Thunen model, even in modern agriculture. It also touches on urban population demands and how it effects the size of the Von Thunen model, bring the last level much closer to the city center. 

 

Insight: I think that with urban demands of fresh foods, it is absolutely correct to have to shift the Von Thunen model. Of course, in its time the model was correct, but with the growing agribusiness, it's no longer 100% accurate.

  Overnight and through Friday, the situation in Arakan State has shown little sign of improvement. On the contrary, it seems that the violence has now spread to other communities as well. A number of our sources have also commented that the recent escalation is due to the President’s office directly instructing army personnel to shoot on sight, those causing disturbances, Rakhine or Rohingya. This decision, with the reports that army personnel have actually shot, maimed and killed some Rakhine has led to huge upsurge of violence against the Rohingya by Rakhine locals.....

"Until the late 1980s whiteness was consistently naturalized in U.S. television--social whiteness, that is, not the "pinko-grayishness" that British novelist E.M. Forster correctly identified as the standard skin-hue of Europeans. This whiteness has not been culturally monochrome. Irish, Italians, Jews, Poles, British, French, Germans, Russians, whether as ethnic entities or national representatives, have dotted the landscape of TV drama, providing the safe spice of white life, entertaining trills and flourishes over the basso ostinato of social whiteness..."
