What’s your local HDI (human development index)?

What’s your local HDI (human development index)? | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"A recently-released online tool enables Californians to see where they stand on a “human development index” – a composite measure of health, knowledge and standard of living developed by the American Human Development Project of the Social Sciences..." 

This is cool.  Instead of aggregating the data at the country level and comparing countries, we can see differences in local levels of human development.  Students see patterns of socio-economics and development vividly, and in an intensely local way tailored to their regional frame of reference.

How the rise of the megacity is changing the way we live

How the rise of the megacity is changing the way we live | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
The rapid increase in the number of cities home to more than 10 million people will bring huge challenges … and opportunities...

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 30, 2013 7:40 AM

 It's not just that more people now live in cities than in the rural countryside (for the first time in human history).  It's not just that major cities are growing increasingly more important to the global economy.  The rise of the megacities (cities over 10 million inhabitants) is a startling new phenomenon that really is something we've only seen in the last 50 years or so with the expectation that the number of megacities will double in the next 10 to 20 years (currently there are 23).  This reorganization of population entails wholesale restructuring of the economic, environmental, cultural and political networks.  The urban challenges that we face today are only going to become increasingly important in the future.       

Kenny Dominguez's curator insight, December 12, 2013 12:26 AM

It is a good thing that there is more megacities being created because you can see more people move in which will help the city function better economics wise. When it comes down to the population that is a different story because there is more people to worry and deal with. The increase of people could go both ways because it can be good but at the same time it can go bad because people will start arguing in which it can get physical which means city ratings going down.

Many of our first experiments of creating landforms and designing a new world started in the sandbox (you can only image what I do at the beach).  This video shows how that early childhood activity can make for an excellent classroom demonstration to shows how Earth's physical systems work.  If you don't happen to have a digital topographic map to superimpose on the sandbox and a GPU-based water simulation, then at least you've got this video.  Click here to learn more about this UC Davis project on the visualization of lake ecosystems.

International Polar Bear Day celebrates the world's largest bear and land carnivore to highlight conservation efforts

Suva's curator insight, February 28, 9:45 PM

The U.S. Geological Survey projects that two thirds of polar bears will disappear by 2050. I am appalled by the statistics shown. I am not an animal lover. However, I understand the importance of conserving animals like polar bears. These bears are having a difficult  time coping the change in their natural habitat due to global warming. Global warming has led to the melting of ice caps in North and South poles. I am pleased with the fact that the world is celebrating International Polar Bear Day in order to encourage the world to cultivate conservation efforts. This article shows that "Nobody can do everything , but everyone can do something" in order to put a stop to further melting of ice caps. I will also play my part to prevent further reduction in the size of ice caps. I have chose this article because this article tells stories of the polar bears which makes us sympathise them and put ourselves in the shoes of the polar bears. Thus, we are able to feel their pain and struggle. This encourages me to do my part in helping these pitiful creatures.

Teaching the Geography of Food

Teaching the Geography of Food | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"Food. It’s something we all think about, talk about, and need. Food has been one major topic of interest at National Geographic because it connects all of us to our environment. The recent global population projections for the year 2100 just went up from 9 billion to 11 billion, making the issues of food production and distribution all the more important.  For the last 3 years I’ve stored podcasts, articles, videos, and other resources on my personal site on a wide range of geographic issues, including food resources.  I thought that sharing 10 of my personal favorite resources on the geography of food would be helpful to understand our changing global food systems."

Good thought....but not before other countries.
India is like Russia during the second World War. The population is enormous, but the resources haven't been used fully. India is growing in education and in the workforce, but it needs to keep its own citizens rather than have them deport to other nations.Until then they will not control this kind of problems,it is not possible.
