The Map That Lincoln Used to See the Reach of Slavery

The Map That Lincoln Used to See the Reach of Slavery | Education | Scoop.it

"Historian Susan Schulten writes in her book Mapping the Nation: History and Cartography in Nineteenth-Century America that during the 1850s many abolitionists used maps to show slavery's historical development and to illustrate political divisions within the South. (You can see many of those maps on the book’s companion website.)  Schulten writes that President Lincoln referred to this particular map often, using it to understand how the progress of emancipation might affect Union troops on the ground. The map (hi-res) even appears in the familiar Francis Bicknell Carpenter portrait First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation of President Lincoln, visible leaning against a wall in the lower right-hand corner of the room."

I chose this scoop because it relates to slavery, and slavery has something to do with economics. It also has to do with social. This map was used by Lincoln to see the reach of slavery. TOPIC: social

Great historical map of the population density of enslaved people during the 1850s. I would like to see this map with a side by side of the poulation density of modern day african americans. I think they would be very similar due to many people not wanting to leave their culture and tradtion behind. Another little thing i found interesting on this map is where the slaves were the most populated such as along the mississippi and coastal carolinas. This is from the farms having to use massive amounts of water to run and whats better than being right on the water.

Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, December 17, 2014 11:01 AM

This made, created in 1861, shows the relevant amounts of slavery occurring throughout that year. The map shades counties based on the percentage of total inhabitants who were enslaved. Though this map was simple, it showed the relationship between states commitments to slavery and their enthusiasm about secession, making a visual argument about Confederate motivations. President Lincoln referred to this particular map often, using it to understand how the progress of emancipation might affect Union troops on the ground. The map is a great representation of slavery that amounted during the 1860's.

The Teacher’s Guide To Digital Citizenship

The Teacher’s Guide To Digital Citizenship | Education | Scoop.it
Digital citizenship is important to understand for today's students, staff, and teachers. Microsoft has just unveiled a free curriculum that gives great tips and ideas on teaching digital citizenship and creative content.

This looks like a great resource. It is designed for students in Grades 8 - 10, but the site suggests that you may also use it with Grades 6 & 7. There are four units. Each provides student learning objectives. The units are:

* Unit One: Creative What? - Exploring the general topics of  "intellectual property, creative content and creative rights" with a focus on intellectual property and creative content.

* Unit Two: By Rule of Law - A more in-depth look at creative content copyright.

* Unit Three: Calling All Digital Citizens - Using social media as the backdrop a look at "how does the prevalence of online media — and its ease of access — change the conversation about those rights?"

* Unit Four: Protect Your Work, Respect Your Work - How do you protect your creative work? This unit looks at this issue as well as other "issues related to originality and plagiarism."

Trends in Plant Science: Evolution of the plant–microbe symbiotic ‘toolkit’ (2013)

Trends in Plant Science: Evolution of the plant–microbe symbiotic ‘toolkit’ (2013) | Education | Scoop.it

Beneficial associations between plants and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi play a major role in terrestrial environments and in the sustainability of agroecosystems. Proteins, microRNAs, and small molecules have been identified in model angiosperms as required for the establishment of arbuscular mycorrhizal associations and define a symbiotic ‘toolkit’ used for other interactions such as the rhizobia–legume symbiosis. Based on recent studies, we propose an evolutionary framework for this toolkit. Some components appeared recently in angiosperms, whereas others are highly conserved even in land plants unable to form arbuscular mycorrhizal associations. The exciting finding that some components pre-date the appearance of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi suggests the existence of unknown roles for this toolkit and even the possibility of symbiotic associations in charophyte green algae.

Griffey showed many examples where Arduino-based hardware cost a third or even a tenth of retail goods.  Assuredly some had added features and may have been more aesthetically pleasing, but even this customization is likely not far in the future, and as the software is open source, it can be modified to meet individual needs.

The Austrian street art scene grows larger by day and is known internationally for it’s wide range of talent. One of the artist we recently noticed was Nychos who creates dark, twisted mural reminiscent of 80’s skateboard graphics. Pure Evil gallery describes the artist as, “Twisted at birth, brainwashed throughout his childhood, poisoned by the media and fostered by the dark side, Nychos, the evil genius has been genetically modifying an army of lime green mutated tentacles, maggots, monsters and femme fatales to take over the world....

The Compassionate Mind | Observer

The Compassionate Mind | Observer | Education | Scoop.it

Decades of clinical research has focused and shed light on the psychology of human suffering. That suffering, as unpleasant as it is, often also has a bright side to which research has paid less attention: compassion. Human suffering is often accompanied by beautiful acts of compassion by others wishing to help relieve it. What is compassion and how is it different from empathy or altruism? Is it learned? What are its psychological and physical benefits? Can it be cultivated?

Eileen Cardillo's curator insight, May 2, 2013 7:46 AM

The majority of research on meditation has pertained either to its physiological/clinical benefits or to its impact on attention. Research about its influence on emotion regulation and utility for cultivating pro-social states, like compassion, is now starting to catch up. This APS article is a good, non-technical review of the latter.

Randy Bauer's comment, May 18, 2013 11:07 AM
Thanks again Eileen. I have recently read more on positive health and well-being, specifically Flourish by Seligman. Our well-being is greatly impacted my many things in our live's, and action that provides greater meaning beyond self(compassion) influences other aspects of our Well-Being(positive emotion,relationships). This too may have a physiological effect on not just inflammation, but telomere length.
