These two satellite images show the flooding in Colorado.  The second image is from seven days after the first image.  It is amazing what one week will do to a space.

A quieter drug war in Mexico, but no less deadly

A quieter drug war in Mexico, but no less deadly | Jon's Geo 400 | Scoop.it

Lauren Stahowiak's curator insight, February 4, 12:13 PM

As military and government officials stepped in to control the drug wars, cartels have made greater efforts to quiet their attacks. Although the attacks are quieter, they are still happening at constant rates. As cartels clash into eachother, more problems arrive and once again question the legalization of marijuana.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, February 4, 12:28 PM

This article talks about the realization of the Mexician drug war and the way that these riots have affected Mexican land overall. For example the statistics of the violence against the Mexican military army for 2011-2012 is alarming; there has been 503 Attacks, 181 Injjuries and, 31 deaths of the people who are sworn to protect the citizens.

Paige Therien's curator insight, February 6, 3:02 PM

The new president of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto, has been trying to make the Cartel and governments fighting less apparent.  In a war, each side has to learn how to play the other's game, which is what is happening here.  Perhaps the Cartel is going along with this so they can "test the waters" of this new president and his very different policies (compared to Felipe Calderon).  Nieto wants to focus less on the drug wars, so the Cartel is laying low in northern rural areas, so they can still smuggle drugs into and guns out of the United States.

A Mysterious Patch Of Light

A Mysterious Patch Of Light | Jon's Geo 400 | Scoop.it
If you are up in space looking down on America west of the Mississippi, one of the brightest patches of light at night is on the Great Plains in North Dakota. It's not a city, not a town, not a military installation.

Use google earth and you can compare the two images.
Mary Patrick Schoettinger's comment, February 12, 2013 11:55 PM
that's an excellent idea, especially to have students suggest what the light might be in the photo. The question is , is the bright light a one time occurrence or does it continue?J

I'm having trouble installing GoogleEarth on my iMac. Looking forward to the comparison. Big adjustment after years in the PC world.

#Jerusalem

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, March 14, 11:35 AM

This article and picture points out just how hard it is to “solve” the problems in Israel.  The constant overlapping of buildings on holy sites complicates the issues more than anything political ever could.  Belief is one of the biggest driving forces for conflict in the world and this illustration reminds us of that.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, May 4, 1:54 PM

In some of the oldest civilizations on earth, religion is the most important aspect of life. There will always be extreme conflicts in these ancient areas all over religion.

I think the idea of drawing a map on an orange is so clever because it really shows us that it's basuically impossible to take an image from a round spherical shape and transform it into the same exact thing on a 2D surface

Stores reject 'wasted food' claims

Stores reject 'wasted food' claims | Jon's Geo 400 | Scoop.it

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 16, 2013 4:09 PM

The mechanization of the all stages of food production has lead to some strange practices.  The geometry of a food matters for a mechanized processing and also for the aesthetics at the grocery store which leads to slightly misshaped vegetables and fruits are routinely discarded.  There is waste throughout the system, from 'field to fork.'
