Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 21, 10:10 AM

Some of the wealthiest regions of the poorest countries of the European Union are seeking for greater regional autonomy and even independence.  As one resident said, "I have always felt as a Venetian first, and Italian second."  The scale at which people construct their primary identities and political loyalties play a key role to the political geographic concept of devolution, where power shifts from a central authority to more local control.  So independence moves are to start negotiating.  As another Venetian said, "I think we'll end up with a little more autonomy and a little more pride in our city" and not actual independence.

Ruth Reynolds's curator insight, April 22, 5:33 PM

After all- what is national identity? how are we Australians as opposed to citizens of our state region , local community.  Is the world a better place for small groups or for large groups?  Current nation states such as Germany are compiled from a number of smaller kingdoms- they joined together because it was in their best interests. Is it still the case?

Mr. Gresham's curator insight, Today, 6:09 AM

In Unit Four: Political Geography we discussed forces that lead to devolution.  This article highlights which of these forces?

Seth Dixon's curator insight, Today, 2:46 PM

The Colombian Exchange is a term that describes the most dramatic biologic transfer in history.  European explorers brought animals and agricultural items from the Old World to the New and subsequently brought back items from the New World back to the Old.  This exchange profoundly reshaped many societies as agricultural diffusion of the potato lead to the changes across northern Europe.

Alexander the Great

Alexander the Great | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  TEXTBOOK: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"Considered the finest military leader in history, Alexander III of Macedon, best known as Alexander the Great, was born in Pella, the Macedonian capital, in July 356 BC. His father, Philip II, was king of Macedon, one of many Greek city-states, and a great warrior.

 

Alexander the Great was the most gifted military commander in history, leading 40,000 soldiers 20,000 miles over the course of 12 years, and Hellenistic culture spread far and wide due to his military campaigns. Trade connected Greece to points as far away as India and China. Medicine, math, science and philosophy flourished, influencing the Romans, who would go on to influence Western European culture and therefore our culture today"

The white tourist’s burden

The white tourist’s burden | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  TEXTBOOK: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Seth Dixon's curator insight, Today, 3:02 PM

As stated in this article, "Under this program, well-to-do tourists sign up to build schools, clean and restore riverbanks, ring birds and act as caregivers to AIDS orphans for a few weeks. This led to the creation of a profitable industry catering to volunteer tourists. The orphans’ conditions are effectively transformed into a boutique package in which 'saving' them yields profits from tourists. The foreigners’ ability to pay for the privilege of volunteering crowds out local workers."  For a satirical look at this type of tourism, the Onion absolutely delivers.

Despite having a population of more than 310 million people, 47 percent of the USA remains unoccupied.
