Given the recent meteor in Russia, interest has been high on the subject.  Have you every wanted to simulate a the impact of a meteorite?  Then this is just what you've always wanted. If you would rather to see an incredibly entertaining clip from the Daily Show, then knock yourself out (disclaimer: it's a VERY irreverant look at the the dash-cam footage from Russia that many just discovered after the meteor hit last week).

Photos of Children From Around the World With Their Most Prized Possessions | Curiosidades geográficas | Scoop.it
Chiwa - Mchinji, Malawi Shot over a period of 18 months, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti's project Toy Stories compiles photos of children from around the world with their prized possesions—their toys.

Ignacio Conejo Moreno's insight:

La imagen de portada engaña, no es éste un mensaje sobre la pobreza en el mundo, sino sobre los hábitos de apegos de los niños de todo el mundo, en función de su raza, estrato social, continente de residencia.

Es realmente muy tierno, vale la pena verlo. Además es muy visual, lo que lo hace todavía mas impactante y enternecedor.

geography and history were two of Dewey's most important tools in pedagogy in strengthening the imagination of the child 

Matthew DiLuglio's curator insight, November 27, 2013 6:40 PM

This is horrifying and really puts things in perspective.  Their toys are not what they need.  None of these kids had anything creative except for the building blocks... I would have liked to have seen some paints and paintings, because I hugely believe that schools suck the creativity out of people's lives.  Toys can be... 'imaginative,' but not really.  Toys get put away when a kid turns 10.  Then they're in school.  Then they're at work... it was interesting to see the farmer girl with farm toys, but seriously, again, creativity should be encouraged at that age.  If people are not creative, they become creatures that absorb the habits and things that they are taught, with no ability to deal with new situations, or adapt their environment in a positive manner to better suit themselves or others.  I hate the stagnancy of the world today.  I used to play guitar in Providence on the streets, I have publically painted at URI, I have given paintings away to friends, and I love sharing ART, which can change the world, if only by one mind at a time.  I believe in the butterfly effect and that these kids should have something artsy as their most prized possession, because to not have that is to reflect the corporate importance in society on buying manufactured goods.  As for the kid with toy guns, it really isn't my business to speak ill of him, but seriously! He will end up with a TV show like Duck Dynasty one day or something... hope it works out for him.

This shows us how kids from different regions in the world value certain items that to others may seem almost trivial. Around the world everything is seen differently because situations are different.

Climate change is extremely violent and will cause many hardships to human beings. World leaders and polluters do not want to understand... This is a crime against humanity.

This is true of many nations, especially Austria neighbors. Slovakia, Czech Republic , Hungary, Slovenia... It's actually too many to list since I don't have time to verify all of them.
Stephen Suss's comment, March 6, 2013 1:59 AM
Not true at: Sudan to Egypt and Libya, Chad to Libya, Niger to Libya and Algeria, Maritania to Algeria, Kuwait to iraq, saudi Arabia to Qatar and Iraq and probably some more...
Peter Farárik's comment, March 6, 2013 10:15 AM
I did not get it. Why is it so that all neighbors are south of Austria? I am from Slovakia and it is pretty clear that we are north of Austria. Please explain it bit deeper for us less clever :)

NOVA: Earth From Space

Detailed satellite images reveal the web of connections that sustain life on Earth.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, February 17, 2013 4:34 PM

"Earth From Space is a groundbreaking two-hour special that reveals a spectacular new space-based vision of our planet. Produced in extensive consultation with NASA scientists, NOVA takes data from earth-observing satellites and transforms it into dazzling visual sequences, each one exposing the intricate and surprising web of forces that sustains life on earth."


This documentary shows something interesting for the physical geographer, human geographers, and geospatial technology specialists.  In other words, this touches on just about all things geographic (with cool images!).  The overarching theme is that so many things in this world that we wouldn't imagine are actually interconnected with excellent examples.

Thanks so much for this link! I'd completely missed this on PBS, and it is EXACTLY the kind of video I'm trying to get my AP Human Geography students to watch right now. This is getting shared with ALL my kids ASAP. :-)

I just love that Scoop.it allows resources to be shared so easily, and in a manner that is so accessible to students everywhere. Thanks Kenneth.
