The Greatest Invention?

"What was the greatest invention of the industrial revolution? Hans Rosling makes the case for the washing machine. With newly designed graphics from Gapminder, Rosling shows us the magic that pops up when economic growth and electricity turn a boring wash day into an intellectual day of reading."

What one invention has made the greatest difference in the lives of people all around the world?  The case can be made for the washing machine; it has been a major tool in transforming the lives of women and restructuring gender roles in industrialized societies.

I think that it is really interesting how something that almost everybody in todays society has and uses and doesn't really think about, can be described as a "miracle" to some people.

Feeding the Whole World

"Louise Fresco argues that a smart approach to large-scale, industrial farming and food production will feed our planet's incoming population of nine billion. Only foods like (the scorned) supermarket white bread, she says, will nourish on a global scale."

dilaycock's curator insight, October 19, 6:45 PM

Fresco argues that we tend to see "home-made" agriculture as a thing of beauty, whereas the reality is that many small scale farmers struggle and live a subsistence lifestyle. The adoration of small-scale farming, notes Fresco, is a luxury to those who can afford it. Large-scale production has increased the availability and affordability of food. Food production should be given as high a priority as climate change and sustainability, and we should seriously consider ways in which land can be used as a multi-purpose space that includes agriculture.

This is the same thing we see in china but flipped. More one sided sex. There are so many women left unmarried because of the crapy economy. The men dont have a choice but to leave because there are literally no hope for them there. Its very devastating to see this.

Irvin Sierra's curator insight, October 14, 10:37 PM

This topic relates to what we are talking about in class because it's about migration. With this topic is showing us the negative result do to migration. Which tells us that there's always a risk when you decide to migrate it might not be right away but it will be there in the long run. This topic is interesting because as men migrate to Russia they are leaving more women with less chances of marrying. The problem with this is that they wont have children and the birth rates will decline also their population later on. Also if there's no births there will be less people working in the future which will harm their economy. This is also something bad for women because if they cant find a partner their last resource would be to find pleasure and love in a different way..

It was cool to read about the different cultural differences within India.  There's two main ethnic groups: the Indo-Aryans and the Dravidians.  There's no official language, but Hindi is the most widely spoken.  This article was mostly directed towards the statistics of India's population, not migration.  But still very fascinating nonetheless.

This article does a great job of explaining how the worlds population has been increasing but will have its peak. Demographer Patrick Gerland and sociologist Adrian Raftery ay that the foresee that the worlds population will level of in2050 and in some cases decline. This is due to struggles to produce enough food or cope with poverty and infectious diseases. This article relates to our topic because it shows doubling time in past during the 1900s. The article also demonstrated examples on epidemiologic transition in the world.

Let’s Talk About Geography and Ebola

Let’s Talk About Geography and Ebola | Haak's APHG | Scoop.it
Why knowing where countries are in Africa matters for how the rest of the world thinks about Ebola.

 

Cultural and media norms that often refer to Africa as one entity rather than an 11.7 million-square-mile land mass comprised of 54 countries and over 1.1 billion people who speak over 2,000 different languages.  This cultural confusion means that, when a dangerous virus like Ebola breaks out, Americans who are used to referring to “Africa” as one entity may make mistakes in understanding just how big of a threat Ebola actually is, who might have been exposed to it, and what the likelihood of an individual contracting it might be.  This Ebola outbreak is wreaking havoc on African economies beyond the three most heavily affected by Ebola, and that damage is completely avoidable. The East and Southern African safari industry provides a good example. Bookings for safaris there — including for the famed Great Migration in Kenya and Tanzania — have plummeted due to the Ebola outbreak. These actions are based in fear, not reality.

Ebola. Now this is a topic that everyone has been talking about for about a month now. And honestly everything that is being said is mostly things that don't need to be mentioned. This may be a control over our population but if someone like a doctor catches this disease and doesn't spread it fast enough then obviously it won't be a control. But this is a huge talk and the conpericies obviously need to be settled.

Scott Holcomb's curator insight, October 15, 10:37 AM

Great current classroom discussion aide!

Wilmine Merlain's curator insight, October 16, 11:36 AM

With this week new Ebola outbreak on US soil, one might think that the entire African Continent is infected with the disease. In actuality, in order to understand the Ebola outbreak in some countries in West Africa, one must first understand the map of Africa and the diversity and square miles that make up the continent. While we are concerned about the virus entering our homeland, those in South Africa and bordering countries are equally concerned about the spread of this deadly disease in their land. Just because we are miles away from the heart of the outbreak, those living on the continent are equally afraid for their life as we are here.

Population increase is just part of the story. How do we feed everyone? How will we provide for the needs of everyone?  Can the earth sustain the use of her resources and the impact of our growing needs and output. First we must eat. Can we learn to do that wisely?

Ignacio Quintana's curator insight, October 14, 8:53 PM

Similar to another article I found, here we see how they plan to address this Immigration issue. Since the emigration is smaller than immigration, The UK is scared of having too many people. They will attempt to lower the rate of immigration, but they understand it will be tough. They have interestingly found that around a quarter of these immigrants were single mothers, so maybe the UK has a good looking economy which attracts people like single mothers looking to provide for a family.
