Jessica Rieman's curator insight, February 11, 10:54 AM

Pirates were real in this specific time period. But lets just say they were no the type we think of today that Blockbusters glorify. These types of pirates would have beeen working to discover treasures from the Tierra Firme trade line. The point of origin for the South American 'Tierra Firme' Treasure Fleets, ran from Portobelo (Panama) to the Orinoco Delta.

Jess Deady's curator insight, April 17, 7:27 AM

This is a fun exercise than can be used in many classrooms. I like being able to scroll through and zoom into what maps what I want to look at. Also, children love pirates (or most of them anyway) and this would be a great map to bring into their worlds.

Al Picozzi's curator insight, July 23, 2013 10:36 AM

If you take a look back at history, the only people to ever sucessfully conquer Afghanistan were the Mongols.  The rugged, mountainous terrain made this plac hard to live in and hard to control.  The Mongols were a very mobile people and were able to control the area by aslo being very tolerant of the natives.  Eventually it bacame hard to notice the difference between a Mongol and a native Afghan, they assimilated the Mongols. 

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, February 28, 8:19 PM

These videos explain how the northern and southern borders of Afghanistan were created so no part of the great empires of Russia and the United Kingdom would touch. The two superpowers artificially dictated the borders which has caused conflicts. British India historically had used money and influence to support and indirectly rule Afghanistan to provide a buffer zone between its valuable colony of India and Russia while keeping their Indian subjects docile and secure.

This is very interesting because I had no idea that the United States had gone under such transformation. Even within certain borders, there is much change in respect to who the area belongs to. You definitely have to watch it a few times to get the full affect though.
Lindsey Robinson's comment, September 17, 2012 7:21 AM
Although the moving image makes it hard to actually pinpoint the U.S expansion at specific dates, I don't think that is the point of the map. The point of the map is to show how many times territories have changed, etc. I really like the map.. I have never seen anything like it.
Jesse Gauthier's comment, September 17, 2012 7:42 AM
The United States has changed drastically through the years with state borders, but I noticed that the regions' labels of the country are still similar today. For example, the southwest is much more divided today but still classified as a region with plenty of Spanish culture.

The Invention Of 'The Economy'

The Invention Of 'The Economy' | CLIL-DNL History | Scoop.it

"Until the Great Depression, nobody talked about 'the economy.' In a sense, it hadn't been invented yet."

Stephen Zimmett's curator insight, March 4, 10:54 AM

Seth Dixon has it right. 

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, April 26, 1:01 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.

Emma Lafleur's curator insight, January 29, 2013 3:53 PM

I am interested in US History and watching the creation of the boundaries with the year that they were created gives a lot of insight into the people and population of that time. Also the rate of change in size from year to year gives insight into the economic and political status of the country at that time. This is a great clip to watch even if just to see how much the country has physically changed over time.
