Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 23, 7:48 PM

The types of questions that you ask when you are meeting someone new for the first time has some regional variations but there is much more to the geography of small talk than that as see in this 4 minute video.  People want to understand your cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic context by asking spatial questions about where you are from.  Identity and place are tightly woven and these neighborhood questions are almost invitations to share much more personal information, as if to ask, "how do you fit in this world?"  When you are being introduced to someone, what are the questions that you ask, and what type of information are you hoping to get?  Each person has their own little geography that has profoundly shaped who they are---so what’s your story?

Kyle Hiscock's curator insight, Today, 1:08 PM

It always amuses me when people complain about paying taxes.  There is no way to avoid them.  Overpaying taxes is a different story!

As a real estate agent, a common concern from buyers and sellers are the amount of yearly taxes that are due.  Many homeowners are paying way to much in taxes and may not even know.  

Appealing the taxes does not have to be impossible but there are specific steps that need to be taken.  Check out this detailed guide to appealing taxes done by @Bill Gassett ! Bill gives some awesome pointers for those who are looking to get their taxes lowered.

Check out his article at http://www.maxrealestateexposure.com/how-to-challenge-high-property-taxes/.

The Geography of Language

"Over the course of human history, thousands of languages have developed from what was once a much smaller number. How did we end up with so many? And how do we keep track of them all? Alex Gendler explains how linguists group languages into language families, demonstrating how these linguistic trees give us crucial insights into the past."
