Rio’s shantytowns are finding a place on city maps

Rio’s shantytowns are finding a place on city maps | FCHS AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY | Scoop.it
RIO DE JANEIRO — Look at most maps of Rio de Janeiro. The beaches are easy to spot, as are the iconic ocean-front neighborhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema. In the middle is a vast forest.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 25, 2013 8:40 AM

A nonprofit organization run by current and former favela residents called Redes da Mare has started the first mapping program to systematically chart out the favelas for municipal governments.  We take for granted what having an address on a named street means in a modern society; it is a portal to public utilities, recognition with businesses and countless other social benefits.  Being left 'off the map' is synonymous with being left behind.  By finding their way on the city maps they are removing some of the social stigma that sought to treat them as if they did not exist.

Even the shanty-towns are beautiful in Brazil
chris tobin's curator insight, February 21, 2013 12:06 PM

Being left off the map is ludicrous.  It should be surprising how many there are,what they pick for addresses, and population statistics. Hopefully this will also help them to get aid for poverty relief.

NatGeo on Instagram | FCHS AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY | Scoop.it

I'm not a photographer, so Instagram isn't one on of my preferred social media platforms.  However, since National Geographic is world renowned for their images, this is a perfect outlet to share more images that wouldn't fit into their articles or other collections.  According to their Social Media expert, this foggy image of NYC is their most viewed image on Instagram.

How 'Millenials' Are Changing Food as We Know It - Forbes

How 'Millenials' Are Changing Food as We Know It - Forbes | FCHS AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY | Scoop.it

The Millennials have much less brand loyalty and are more willing to engage in different distribution models to find food. This generation is not afraid to purchase food online and to look outside of the traditional grocery store to find what they want. Boomers on the other hand were more brand loyal and shopped at the grocery store for everything.

Eat your kale - The Washington Post

Eat your kale - The Washington Post | FCHS AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY | Scoop.it

Turns out there’s quite a bit of science behind this super food hype: “Kale is rich in so many different things,” says registered dietitian and nutritionist Cheryl Harris, of Harris Whole Health in Fairfax, who notes that the cruciferous veggie — which is in the Brassica family, along with broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage — is an excellent, potent source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, fiber and carotenoids, and that’s just to start. Research has also shown that kale contains 45 — count ’em, 45 — different flavonoids with a variety of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
