20 years on, Rwanda exhausts its 'genocide credit' with donors

20 years on, Rwanda exhausts its 'genocide credit' with donors | AP Human geography | Scoop.it

On 7 April 2014, Rwanda commemorates the 20th anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsi. The events of 1994 continue to cast a long shadow over both Rwanda and the international community .As the world remembers along with Rwanda, it is important to reflect not only on the lessons and legacies of the genocide itself, but also the role of Western donors in supporting Rwanda’s transition to a peaceful and more prosperous future.

Aimee Knight's curator insight, April 8, 2014 10:22 AM

What happened in Rwanda 20 years ago is horrifying, but what is even more so is the lack of help provided by the rest of the world. We all turned our backs on Rwanda and sacrificed them in order to give us peace and justify our actions or, more correctly, lack thereof. As we look back to those terrible events of the past, we must also remember our shortcomings, what we could have done and how we can work to prevent this in the future. 

BandKids13-14's curator insight, April 8, 2014 7:55 PM

The genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda 20 years ago was just terrible. Many innocent people died just because of their ethnicity. The US should have intervened and helped the Tutsis, but they did not. The US just sat back and as if nothing was happening. We should no longer sit back and watch, we should take action to help prevent genocide. ~Makayla Cauley

Ethnicity and Religion: A Case Study

Ethnicity and Religion: A Case Study | AP Human geography | Scoop.it
In a nation of 230 million people, 700 languages and some 300 ethnicities, ethnic Chinese are one of Indonesia’s historic minorities.

Pie charts to display ethnicity, religion, and population across the world,

Felix Ramos Jr.'s curator insight, May 7, 1:26 PM

This is a very unusual circumstance.  The Chinese were originally immigrants to Indonesia.  Then they were regarded as higher on the social status than native Indonesians under Dutch rule.  And eventually when Indonesia got its independence, assimilation was forced on the Chinese.  This is a clear case of racism and religion-forcing at its finest.

Sometimes it is easier expressing yourself using a foreign language. Using a foreign language sometimes  helps expressing yourself easier .~Amanda

I think that language is differnet for everyone and that is someone's special and own way of expressing themselves. Most people have a strong connection with their language but some people do not , some people that are bilingual pick to use their second language rather than their original language which perhaps most people think it's odd but if that's the way you feel most comfortable then just go with it.

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, December 15, 2014 1:34 PM

This article shows how trends in energy consumption and the economy can affect geographies of development. After WWII, the United States hit an unprecedented economic boom. Large amounts of cheap oil combined with economic growth spurred the development of infrastructure and cities dependent on automobiles. Since people no longer had to live in the cities to work in them, they began developed outside of the city. Today, oil is becoming more and more expensive, which could mean the end of the age of the automobile. Since cities remain to be hubs of employment and business, people can no longer afford to drive long distances for their daily commutes. People are beginning to move into cities or along public transportation lines in order to more feasibly get to work. 

Rachel Phillips's curator insight, January 29, 2:39 PM

Over the past 10-15 years, the suburbs grew dramatically, and have become less popular.  In the early 2000s it thrived because the economy was doing well, and technological advances were in hyper speed.  I was a bit shocked that it's slowed and that it's being reported that suburbs are coming to an end, but then it it started to make sense.  The unemployment rate was extremely high, as were gas prices.  It only makes sense that less people would be building or buying larger home with bigger cars and more appliances.  But, it was possibly better for our environment.  Less miles being driven means less pollution by cars, less electricity being used never hurts.  But now, gas prices have dropped again, and the unemployment rate has dropped as well. But, today we have so many alternatives to gasoline run cars and common electricity, that even if suburbs made a huge comeback, they wouldn't be the same as they were before.

ADER  -  Africa - "  Africa’s inadequate infrastructure remains a major constraint to the continent’s economic growth and development. The report urges greater investment in this area. “African currently invests just four per cent of its collective GDP in infrastructure, compared with China’s 14 per cent,” it says. “While sustainable infrastructure entails significant up-front investments, it will prove cost-effective in the longer term.”

According to the ADER, growth in the continent’s low-income countries exceeded 4.5 per cent in 2012 and is forecast to remain at above 5.5 in the next few years. Africa’s collective gross domestic product (GDP) reached US $953 while the number of middle income countries on the continent rose to 26, out of a total of 54   -   “Strong economic growth has made major inroads into income poverty. The share of the population living below the poverty line has fallen from 51 per cent to 39 per cent. Some 350 million Africans now earn between US $2 and US $20 a day, and the middle class is increasingly becoming an active consumer market,” the report says."

I honestly believe that this idea will work, mainly because this type of drone will be used for transporting goods, and not spying and dropping bombs on unsuspecting targets.. However, these drones could have a positive on the economy, which the United states sorely needs at the moment. Also, these machines are most likely for efficient on fuels, which will positively effect the postal service. These drones have more positives than negatives, which will eventually lead to the implementation of them into the postal service replacing the delivery trucks.
