New islands are being made in the disputed South China Sea by the might of the Chinese state. But a group of marooned Filipinos on a rusting wreck is trying to stand in the way.

Great series with videos and images! This is an amazing undertaking by the Chinese in building up reefs and other formations under the South China Sea into new man-made islands that can be used, in part, for military purposes.

The True Cost Of Russia's Food Patriotism

The True Cost Of Russia's Food Patriotism | AP Human Geography @ Hermitage High School - Ms. Anthony | Scoop.it
Allison Anthony's insight:

MOSCOW — People usually associate Russian conservatism with its citizens' political tastes, but marketing professionals have long ago seen another connection — literally, in consumer tastes.

There's the ice cream wrapped in paper — "tastes just like you remember!" And there's sausage with a label saying it was "made according to the standards of the Soviet Union."

Soviet culinary artifacts have been flying off the shelves for years. Valeri Fedorov, director of the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center, says it's no surprise that Russians support sanctions on Western food products as evidenced by the abundance of Soviet symbols in stores.

Access to education is one of the great indicators of development and political stability--educators wish nothing but the best education possible for the next generation, but the experience is quite variable across the globe.  As many places have recently started school again, this article is a reminder that this practice is experienced differently around the world.

‘Factory Man’ explores human side of globalization

‘Factory Man’ explores human side of globalization | AP Human Geography @ Hermitage High School - Ms. Anthony | Scoop.it
For much of the 20th century, southern Virginia and North Carolina were home to the world's biggest furniture factories and suppliers.

It shouldn't be too surprising that misconceptions about African geography has led to travelers are increasingly canceling trips to Africa, regardless of where on the continent it may be.  Here are some accurate maps and data to help inform our decisions.

Will Everyone Shut Up Already About How the Nordic Countries Top Every Global Ranking?

Will Everyone Shut Up Already About How the Nordic Countries Top Every Global Ranking? | AP Human Geography @ Hermitage High School - Ms. Anthony | Scoop.it

"The Nordic countries are paradigms of equality, good education, female empowerment, and progressiveness. We know this because we are told. And told and told and told.   To take one example, the latest Global Gender Gap rankings from the World Economic Forum were topped by Iceland (for the fifth year n a row), followed by Finland, Norway, and Sweden. (Denmark came in eighth.) Iceland and Denmark took first and second place respectively in this year’s Global Peace Index (Finland was sixth, Norway took 10th, and the comparatively violent Swedes came in 11th)..."

"You don’t have to go to the ends of the Earth to go on an extraordinary journey. This September I will ascend the height of a mountain by walking up stairwells in buildings. Mountain’s are anything over 2,000 feet (610 metres) in height. As most floors in buildings are 10 feet apart, this means walking up 200 floors."

Emily Bian's curator insight, October 3, 5:35 PM

This is an awesome slideshow showing globalization happening in all different parts of the world. It brings "diverse cultures in direct contact", making people's experiences more similar. I liked this one photo on the slideshow showing a movie poster advertising an American movie in Mexico, but the actor is Belgian. This shows how everybody is interconnected.

Bella Reagan's curator insight, November 28, 6:07 PM

Unit 3-culture

 

This slideshow shows globalization in places around the world. The movement and assimilation of these ideas show different cultures spreading to places that may seem completely different. 

I like this presentation since is connects places of the world and shows how the world is exchanging ideas and the effects of globalization. It even shows how the world gets connected, like through trade, which then actually directly trades different materials to different places.

"The militant group called the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria seemed to surprise many American and Iraqi officials with the recent gains it made in its violent campaign to create a new religious state. But the victories achieved in the past few weeks were built on months of maneuvering along the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, which define a region known as the cradle of civilization."

Vietnamese Hipsters Reveal The Power of Internet and Globalization

Vietnamese Hipsters Reveal The Power of Internet and Globalization | AP Human Geography @ Hermitage High School - Ms. Anthony | Scoop.it

"Starbucks and Kentucky Fried Chicken aren't the only American brands entering Vietnam and changing the culture. The short film, "The Day Dreamers" by Vietnamese production team, Bluer Vietnam, showcases Vietnam's own brand of tattooed hipsters hanging out on rooftops, riding fixed gear bikes, skateboarding and fantasizing about crazy ideas. While there is no dialogue, the imagery of these hip Vietnamese youth tells a powerful story about Vietnam's cultural evolution: it strives to look like America."

Allison Anthony's insight:

This is a great story about the globalization and diffusion of popular culture.
