This article shows the shift of immigration over the past 100 years. From the predominantly European wave in 1910 to the more diverse wave in 2010 that consists of Mexican, Canada, India and many other countries.

Edelin Espino's curator insight, October 28, 12:10 AM

It's pretty clear that immigration has changed a lot in the US in the last 100 years. It was first full of Europeans, with a majority of Germans and now is almost full of Mexican, the largest wave of immigration in history from a single country to the United States. An interesting fact to know. We might think that Mexico was always the largest immigrants and is wasn't always like that.

Samuel D'Amore's curator insight, December 14, 6:24 PM

The reason this article and maps are so important is because it shows that immigration isn't a new aspect of the American way of life. Historically people from across the globe flocked to America from Europe and Asia and today we're seeing increasing immigration from Central and South Americans as well as those fleeing unstable areas in the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

Colonization and Independence in Africa | Brown University

Colonization and Independence in Africa | Brown University | CLIL-DNL History | Scoop.it

In the late nineteenth century, Europe's great powers claimed the African continent for themselves. In the guise of a humanitarian mission, European leaders and businesses exploited African natural resources and people to fuel European economic growth. Africans did not submit to outside control willingly. In fact, African resistance continued throughout the colonial period, culminating in the independence movements of the mid-twentieth century.

Africa is a vast continent—more than three times the size of the United States—with more than 50 countries and thousands of ethnic groups and societies. African experiences of colonialism were diverse. Nevertheless, there are common themes within the continent's colonial history and its legacies. Colonization and Independence in Africa explores these themes generally, as well as specifically through four country case studies: Ghana, Algeria, Kenya, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The readings and activities help students consider the perspectives of Africans and the ways in which they responded to European colonialism.

How the British (literally) Landscaped the World

"Did you hear about the Five Pillars of British Landscaping Empire during your religion classes? To sort them by order of importance within the Holy Book of Grass: First is Grass. Second is pasture grass (this one comes with fences). Third is leisure grass. Forth is golf grass. Fifth is: you never have enough flowers & cute little benches on your grass."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 19, 2013 8:55 AM

I've written in the past about the aesthetics of the an ideal British landscape (as embodied in the anthem Jerusalem).  The British ideal was to tame nature; the Canadians on the other hand, embraced the wildness of the natural landscapeThose difference normative views of landscape helped to shape national identity and inform land use decision-making processes.     

megan b clement's comment, December 16, 2013 1:33 AM
This article talks about how the British are the ones who shaped landscaping for the rest of the world. Growing grass in places where grass didnt grow or cute park benches. The pictures of the Bristish landscape were all lush and beautiful. I never knew where the idea of lanscaping had come from.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 30, 2013 10:54 AM

It's amazing how sarcasm (be it Oatmeal, xkcd or the Onion) can effectively convey important geopolitic subtexts.  What merits 'international outrage?'  What doesn't?  Why not?  If you don't see this newly-discovered outrage to be hypocritical how come?  


This make be think of Weber's definition of 'the state.'  Max Weber defined the state as the "entity which upholds the claim to the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force in the enforcement of its order."  All the other countries are perfectly fine with the Syrian government killing Syrians and doing nothing about it because, among the club of states, that historically has been the perogative of the state.  Chemical weapons, however, are banned by international treaties and now the international community sees something worth stopping.  I'm not saying that this is how it should be; I'm just trying to explain what is as I see it.

Stephen Zimmett's curator insight, March 4, 1:54 PM

Seth Dixon has it right. 

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, April 26, 4:01 PM

The parameters of the measure of the economy are so broad that the numbers don't really mean anything. Each country counts different things. The GDP of the US cannot be compared to the GDP of other countries because the cost of living in each place is so wildly different. When compared to Japan our economies are close but compared to any country in Africa they are completely different. Measurement of the economy is not an overly useful number.

India and Pakistan Reunited

"It’s rare that a video from a brand will spark any real emotion--but a new spot from Google India is so powerful, and so honest to the product, that it’s a testament not only to the deft touch of the ad team that put it together, but to the strength of Google’s current offering."--Forbes

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, December 12, 2:36 PM

This ad not only demonstrates how Google is allowing for people all over the world to come together, it is also an expertly devised commentary on a real life event that happened in this part of the world, and the emotional implications that it caused. The video shows how the grandchildren of two men were able to utilize Google in order to bring the two friends together after years apart. The two gentlemen were once good friends, but had not seen each other since the Pakistani-Indian conflict. The conflict tore families and friends apart, and remains today as a sensitive topic to those affected by the event. 

Hector Alonzo's curator insight, December 15, 7:33 PM

This video is a perfect example of ho, especially in this day and age, the world can be brought closer together. In the video, two childhood friends are reunited after years of being apart, due to the conflicts go on their country. This shows one of the positive of the technology we have access to today, being able to bring together old friends by using new ways is great. This video also goes to show that even though the world is an enormous place, it can be made smaller.

Samuel D'Amore's curator insight, December 17, 2:38 AM

This video is reminiscent of the families separated during the Korean war recently being allowed to visit one another. While tensions still exist between India and Pakistan many have begun to come to peace with the concept their nations won't be unified under either's rule. Because of this cooling of tensions families and friends are now able to see each other again after years without seeing them. Of course this is a Google commercial so the sincerity is somewhat diminished because of it's origins.
