"FOUND is a curated collection of photography from the National Geographic archives. In honor of our 125th anniversary, we are showcasing photographs that reveal cultures and moments of the past. Many of these photos have never been published and are rarely seen by the public.  We hope to bring new life to these images by sharing them with audiences far and wide. Their beauty has been lost to the outside world for years and many of the images are missing their original date or location."

These pictures are awesome. It would be nice to know the locations of some of the pictures to compare them to images now.

Linguistic Diversity at Home

"Counties where at least 10 percent of people speak a language other than English at home."

elianna sosa paulino's insight:

While this is ostensibly a map that would be great for a cultural geography unit, I'm also thinking about the spatial patterns that created this map.  What current or historical migrations account for some of the patterns visible here?  What would a map like this look like it it were produced 50 years ago?  Why are Vermont and West Virginia the only states without a county with over 10% of the population that speak another language at home?

This map does not bring many surprises.  Places where there are a lot of Spanish speaking families are present in places where many Spanish people immigrate to, along the Mexican border and the southern tip of Florida, where Cuba is close by.  One interesting thing about the French areas seen in Louisiana is that their version of French is a regional dialect. Not only is their a cluster of French speaking families, but they are all speaking a language native to the region.  It is very surprising that there are not as many French speaking families along the Canadien border.

This map shows how linguistically diverse the United States is today. This map reminded me of one of the slides that we went over in class about how in the Northwest Region the predominant language was German and now it is mainly English, with some German and Native American languages still spoken in certain parts.

This data is very interesting because you can see that most of these statements speak Spanish. I noticed that most people who speak another language at home (in this case Spanish)  besides English are located in the south western of United States. I wonder if this has something to do with people who immigrated to U.S  from south America.

elianna sosa paulino's insight:

Germany's Anna Bader plunges headfirst during the 2013 Cliff Diving European Championship in Ponte Brolla, Switzerland, on July 20.

Professional divers jump from heights between 60 and 89 feet (18 to 27 meters) into what is known as one of the most dangerous—and frigid—cliff-diving spots in the world.

Why We Love It

"What makes this photo interesting for me is not only the tensity brought on by the perfectly poised diver leaping from the cliffs, but also the depth of the background behind her. The even light allows us to clearly see and appreciate all the different onlookers throughout the scene, who become individual points of interest and color rather than a mess of indistinguishable bodies
