It is nice to have these quick links to click on for the index.

ctoler geo 152's curator insight, July 9, 2014 12:00 AM

Starting out: Chapter 1 gives a deeper insight to what Geography is. Both Chapter 1 and 2 give what I like to call "fun facts" about the world we live in. 

BCTC Courses's curator insight, May 17, 8:31 AM
Read Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 in this Online Textbook for Learning Unit 2: Part 1 and Part 2.

Canada: Alberta SuperNet | Service Alberta

Canada: Alberta SuperNet | Service Alberta | geography | Scoop.it

The Alberta SuperNet was built to connect public institutions across the province – schools, hospitals, colleges, universities, libraries, and municipal offices – to a broadband network for high-speed Internet access, video conferencing, and other services. It’s a network of fibre cables and towers currently reaching 429 communities across Alberta.

 

The SuperNet is designed to cover Alberta’s 661,000 km2 and serve its population of 3.5 million people, including the 1 million who live in more rural and remote communities. 

 

As well, the SuperNet connects Alberta’s urban and rural communities. This bridges the traditional “digital divide,” which promotes both competitiveness and rural economic development.

The Supernet was one of the main reasons we formed Allberta.com and started into rural development. We are now inviting potential partners to explore our latest technology as well.

Finnish government survives no-confidence vote on eurozone bailout policy | geography | Scoop.it
HELSINKI — Finland’s conservative-led government on Wednesday survived a vote of no-confidence in Parliament over its handling of the debt crisis afflicting Europe.

Lawmakers voted 116-73 in favor of Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen’s six-party Cabinet, with 11 absent or abstaining. The approval had been expected, as the coalition commands a clear majority in the 200-member Parliament with 124 lawmakers.
