50 years of communist rule still affect opportunities in Germany today, as these maps show. What they don't show is the social mirror that each provides to the other and the rich discussions about social policy that result. Reunification has been an expensive exercise for Germany, however one that it is committed to.

This interactive on refugees is especially timely, given that the Syrian civil war has created refugee situations in many of the neighboring countries.  One of my favorite elements of the Guardian's interactive is that they provide the raw data, so students can create their own maps with the same high quality data.  Equally important, this interactive shows the regional power bases of all the various factions of the Syrian rebellion that is seeking to overthrow the Assad regime.  The political conflict has huge demographic implications.

It is often noted that the cultural composition of the United States is undergoing a shift, referred to by some as the "Browning of America."  The story of Asian and Hispanic growth in the United States are occurring simultaneously, which makes many assume that they are growing for the same reasons.  The data clearly shows that this is not the case.

A very interesting fact, because I thought that Hispanic race had grown rather than Asian race in the last few years but I see that not. Another thing that caught my attention was that the Hispanic  population has  growth due to the Hispanic  birth here in U.S and not because they immigrate to U.S. But in the case of the growth of the Asian population, is because they immigrate. I didn't know that, now I am more  informed.

Deported Mexicans find new life at call centers

Deported Mexicans find new life at call centers | Edison High - AP Human Geography | Scoop.it

"Henry Monterroso is a foreigner in his own country. Raised in California from the age of 5, he was deported to Mexico in 2011 and found himself in a land he barely knew. But the 34-year-old now supervises five employees amid rows of small cubicles who spend eight hours a day dialing numbers across the United States. He is among thousands of deported Mexicans who are finding refuge in call centers in Tijuana and other border cities. In perfect English — some hardly speak Spanish — they converse with American consumers who buy gadgets, have questions about warrantees or complain about overdue deliveries."

Wilmine Merlain's curator insight, October 6, 3:45 PM

When it comes to deportation, its usually a loss win situation. But in the case of Mexicans who once lived a life on US soil from since birth and having been deported later on in life, adjusting to a new life in a new world is challenging. The comfort of being able to work in an environment that reminds them of being back home eliviates the agony of being separated from their family back in the US. The outsourced phone companies give these deported individual an opportunity to be able to participate in a life they once lived by being able to interact with Americans. While they make subsequently less than what they were making in the states, the opportunity of being able to work in a foreign land is one that they are forever grateful for.

Hector Alonzo's curator insight, October 14, 10:49 PM

This article is similar to the topic of outsourcing jobs to the United states, only it is the reverse, with deportees being giving jobs at call centers in the city of Tijuana. It brings up the topic of culture shock and the differences between Mexican and United States Economies.

Jennifer Brown's curator insight, November 10, 10:39 AM

 It seems so weird to think about these people working in Mexico for an American based call center, I'm glad they've found jobs, but it makes me wonder what got these people deported in the first place? Just because someone has Mexican blood in them doesn't mean they should be deported to a country they barely recognize as their own. The United States should have a "common law" program from people who were brought the U.S. as children and have grown up in America. I have Irish blood in my veins does that give the U.S. a right to deport me too?

Why caste still matters in India

Why caste still matters in India | Edison High - AP Human Geography | Scoop.it

INDIA’S general election will take place before May. The front-runner to be the next prime minister is Narendra Modi of the Bharatiya Janata Party, currently chief  minister of Gujarat. A former tea-seller, he has previously attacked leaders of the ruling Congress party as elitist, corrupt and out of touch. Now he is emphasising his humble caste origins. In a speech in January he said 'high caste' Congress leaders were scared of taking on a rival from 'a backward caste'. If Mr Modi does win, he would be the first prime minister drawn from the 'other backward classes', or OBC, group. He is not the only politician to see electoral advantage in bringing up the subject: caste still matters enormously to most Indians."

James Hobson's curator insight, November 11, 1:22 PM

(South Asia topic 7)

It is interesting to see how geography helps to determine the extent to which the caste system is felt in India. One's social status is less relevant in cities and urbanizing regions because of the types of jobs required in these areas. One might also argue that outside influence may be a factor as well. Back in rural regions, however, it is very much still attached to one's line of work. It seems as if this is done to protect and carry on one's family name and heritage (disregarding how detriment it may be). Given this, I still believe the system does more harm than good from my perspective, though perhaps just ever-so-slightly less due to this driving reason.

I hope believers in the caste come to realize that not everybody is meant to be a priest or doctor or ruler. If lower castes did not exist, there would be nobody to preach to or to cure or to rule over. Similarly, certain roles in society are often discriminated against, though these jobs are just as important, if not more, than those in high regard. Take for example waste management. Perhaps this is why lack of toilets is a problem in certain regions?? Hmmm...

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, November 19, 12:21 PM

This article highlights a few key points about the political and cultural geography of India. Culturally, the caste system still has ripple effects throughout the country. Especially in rural areas where caste system norms still are very much observed. For example in on rural section of the North, people are murdered for marrying outside of the caste. Politically, the caste system is now being used as a tool by politicians to solicit votes. By promising what is essentially affirmative action measures for lower caste populations politicians are able to cater to large amounts of voters playing of the fact that caste still means a lot in India's political and cultural geography. 

Melissa Marie Falco-Dargitz's curator insight, November 23, 12:11 PM

Caste will take more than a few generations to lose its social privilege/oppression. The verbal history passed from parent to child enforces the idea of caste, even when it has been done away with by law. This social hierarchy effects business, marriage, and politics.

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.

Shanelle Zaino's curator insight, September 24, 8:58 PM

This is an immense idea being proposed to the Nicaraguan people. Yes this would make them a large player in the world economic stage

,however are there more cons than pros in this plan? Currently the only direct route from the Pacific to the Caribbean Sea is the Panama Canal. A route that has largely under United States control. This route is profitable for both the U.S.(investor) and Panamanian (investee ) economies. The country of Nicaragua has been approached by investors to create their own passageway. Despite the fact that it may seem all positive the Nicaraguan people should consider all of the consequences. Lake Nicaragua is the countries main source of water. Having said this,do these citizens really want mega cargo ships wading through their drinking water? What type of wild life will be destroyed in the making of this passage way? Large amounts of natural resources may suffer, more than may have been effected with the creation of the canal to the south.All consequences should be considered before a decision is made. Money sadly should not be the only thing considered.

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, September 29, 12:00 PM

I can only imagine the worry, and possible feuding, that this project is going to cause the people of Nicaragua. The project could offer jobs and will definitely bring much needed money into the country, which is struggling more than many of the countries in the region, but it is hard to weigh that against environmental destruction. Lake Nicaragua is seriously at risk. Between the introduction of possible invasive species to the pollution of drinking water and fishing grounds, I am worried that the money made by opening a canal will have to be used to save the drinking water. 

John Nieuwendyk's curator insight, October 6, 3:14 PM

The Nacaraguan government plans to build a canal from Punta Gorda to Brito in hopes of moving Nicaraguans out of poverty and creating a more efficent trade route. This trade route will rival the Panama canel and illustrates China's and Nicaragua's hopes of improving their international trade.

The world's megacities that are sinking 10 times faster than water levels are rising

The world's megacities that are sinking 10 times faster than water levels are rising | Edison High - AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
Scientists have issued a new warning to the world’s coastal megacities that the threat from subsiding land is a more immediate problem than rising sea levels caused by global warming.

 

A new paper from the Deltares Research Institute in the Netherlands published in April identified regions of the globe where the ground level is falling 10 times faster than water levels are rising - with human activity often to blame.

In Jakarta, Indonesia’s largest city, the population has grown from around half a million in the 1930s to just under 10 million today, with heavily populated areas dropping by as much as six and a half feet as groundwater is pumped up from the Earth to drink.

The same practice led to Tokyo’s ground level falling by two meters before new restrictions were introduced, and in Venice, this sort of extraction has only compounded the effects of natural subsidence caused by long-term geological processes.
