Google and Microsoft Are Putting Rio's Favelas on the Map

Google and Microsoft Are Putting Rio's Favelas on the Map | AP Human Geography @ Hermitage High School - Ms. Anthony | Scoop.it
Both see potential advertising revenue in the Brazilian slums.
Allison Anthony's insight:

"Brazilian officials would rather you not know about favelas, the city’s historically impoverished shantytowns, which often appear as mysterious and unmarked splotches on tourist maps. But the prospects of the Brazilian slums seem to be rising. Residents say drug and gang-related violence is down and government raids are less frequent. There are even reports that some favelas have become popular non-zip codes (some don’t have them) to live in following this summer’s World Cup. (This particular shift, however, is also connected to efforts by the Brazilian government to force residents out of their homes before the games)."

Why Raising Money To Fight Ebola Is Hard

Why Raising Money To Fight Ebola Is Hard | AP Human Geography @ Hermitage High School - Ms. Anthony | Scoop.it
Donors like being part of a recovery story. It's hard to tell that kind of story about Ebola.
Allison Anthony's insight:

This is a very eye-opening story about why relief hasn't materialized to help the victims of this terrible illness the same way people usually respond to other disasters.

The Newest Countries in the world

The Newest Countries in the world | AP Human Geography @ Hermitage High School - Ms. Anthony | Scoop.it

"Will Scotland follow the same fate as any of the other young nations in the world? Perhaps, but probably not. A glance down the list of the nine newest sovereign states below reveals that each situation is unique: It's hard to fully equate Scotland's situation with that of Slovakia, let alone with East Timor.

Even so, a glance back at history does show that the world's borders are changing more than we might appreciate: And the changes can sometimes take some time to settle."

Emily Bian's curator insight, September 28, 5:31 PM

The human impact on the environment is getting larger, and not in a good way, as you can tell from the picture. The rise from 1950 to 2011 is HUGE, compared to the rise from 1900 to 1950. Is there anything we can really do about it? Or do we just keep  going at the pace we are going, and just let things happen?
