This map might appear to be completely trivial and it probably is. Still, there are interesting historical and colonial patterns that can be seen in this technological culture region map.
Questions to Ponder: Will there one day be a single format? When? What are barrier to that happening? What does this tell us about the extent of globalization?
You can map ANYTHING!!!
This map is interesting because it shows where the former British Empire had its influences , especially in British-Africa territories. The only four countries that use the light blue are all in the southern hemisphere as the article points out, and the American model can be largely seen in the western hemisphere, However, there is the American model in Saudi Arabia. It seems that the rest of the world uses the light green or the dark green models.
Wal-Mart de Mexico was an aggressive and creative corrupter, offering large payoffs to get what the law otherwise prohibited, an examination by The New York Times found.
Some reactions that I had about this article were that the corporate Walmart took steps in order to enforce their way into the new making of a Walmart store in Mexico. Some things I would ask would be are what regualtions would the Mexican people know to follow in realation to the fact that Walmart had broken rules in order to expand their monopoly.
Wal-Mart is sometimes considered to be the embodiment of globalization. Unfortunately, these things come at the cost of not only the quality of life of many people, but also at the cost of these people's culture itself. This is especially sad in Teotihuacon, where the tourism that is brought by the ruins helps support locals small businesses (their livelihood). As the article states, and which has been seen wherever a Wal-mart pops up, these small, local business get shut-out quickly. According to the evidence, it seems as though most of Wal-Mart de Mexico's stores were established through bribery. With such a huge corporation showing such sure signs of corruption, what else in Mexico is made possible through bribery?
Walmart is a huge, huge, huge corporation. Does anyone really think they wouldn't bribe tons of Mexican cities to change their maps to put their stores into place? With Walmart's calculations of how well their stores would do in the Mexican societies, why not? Although Walmart's sly business is shameful and corruptive, is it so hard to believe they did this?

"I propose that we institute a 21st century model of education, rooted in 21st century learning skills and creativity, imagination, discovery, and project-based learning. We need to stop telling kids to shut up, sit down, and listen to the teacher passively."
I love these favela images by Fernando Alan.
beautiful from an putside perspective, but it's terrifying to me how close and cramped those houses are, how far up steep mountains they are. It reflects to horrible poverty going on in Brasil today.
These images are great in showing the true nature of the favelas. They really show you that these communities are more than just something like south side Providence, these are huge communities. These pictures really put into perspective how big the favelas are and how they really are built on top of each other.
Favelas are the slums. These pictures depict exactly how living in these cities is. CRAMMED. OVERCROWDED. It is insane to look at how people literally live on top of each other, then we have other spaces such as farmlands that have nothing around them for miles. The amount of poverty this favela is suffering from is located within each picture. These people don't usually leave, instead they build up and up. You can see how some of the houses are multiple levels, whereas others are the single story.

Seismic activity is to be expected in the Los Angeles region as the major hazard threat in the area. This area has a great number of sensors which now allows us to visualize seismic waves better than ever before. This video show 4 earthquakes (starting at 0:45, 2:20, 6:00, and 8:35). For more information on the science behind this clip, read the adptly named blog, The Trembling Earth.
