The School Aranda's curator insight, January 9, 2013 1:50 AM

This image of the Matterhorn was the 1st place winner in the "places" category in the National Geographic's 2012 competition.  The winners are just as impressive as you would expect coming from National Geographic.


Wow....these should prove very useful for K, T and A classes.

Human Conflict Seen From Space

Human Conflict Seen From Space | Global education = global understanding | Scoop.it

I'll let Douglas Keeney's own words and this image speak for themselves: "The geography of human conflict as seen from space at night. The Strait of Hormuz as seen at night from the space station is a beautiful lesson in the geography of conflict. How much we learn by simply tracing the fingers of human populations as seen superimposed over the geography of Earth. Enjoy."

Aboriginal leaders threaten to ban tourists from a top Australian landmark in protest at "racist" government policies.

Laura Mallory's curator insight, February 20, 2013 7:47 AM

The Aborigines are protesting government interference by threatening to ban tourism to Uluru. It is a sacred Aborigine landmark and a major location for Australian tourism. The government is trying to stop the child abuse that is plaguing the Aboriginal community. The Australian government say they won't back down on this and have instituted pornography and alcohol bans. The aborigines claim that this is racist, because it portrays aboriginal man as monsters who abuse women and children. Not all aboriginal men are predators or abusers, but the law implies that they are.

Sahel food crisis

Sahel food crisis | Global education = global understanding | Scoop.it
The hunger crisis in the Sahel region of Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger and Chad has been deepening since the start of this year.

 

The Sahel is a classic transition zone--a border that is not a sharp division, but a gradual shift from one region to the next.  This area has environmentally marginal lands, but is as population pressures continue, marginal lands need to sustain more people.

There have been major differences between Americans food consumption compared to Africa's consumption for as long as I can remember. Here we are many years later and the devastation continues.... Comparing articles http://www.guardian.co.uk/global-development/interactive/2012/jul/19/sahel-food-crisis-guardian-interactive and http://ecocycle.org/holidayguide/10ways(Today, 11:16 PM) (Today, 11:16 PM)
Lauren Stahowiak's curator insight, March 26, 12:25 PM

With an ongoing hunger crisis in the Sahel, areas such as Chad, Niger and Mali find it hard to make ends meet. These areas in the Sahel are not having the best of luck with their crops this year. Areas suffer from infestation of locusts, drought, and high food prices. Over 13 million people are affected and could suffer from hunger.
