la terre peut offrir de la nourriture à tous ses habitants;mais les interets personnels,la recherche de profits et l'absence de plus en plus grande de conscience "écolologique"....une personne comme Baruch Ben Yehuda est tres importante pour ceux qui souffrent du manque de ressources.

After having just driven across country this year I am very in touch with the fact that this model needs to be replicated across the US.

Gregory S Sankey Jr.'s curator insight, October 24, 2013 1:03 PM

This food truck is bringing healthy, vegan food, to food deserts. A food desert is a place where healthy food is not accesable to the population, which is always impoverished. These people typically rely on unhealthy/cheap foods that are high in fats, preservatives, and sugars. This leads to tremendous health issues for these populations. Sure, this food truck is making a profit but it is also providing a wonderful service to the community, exposure to healthy foods and an alternative to the norm.

How was the AIDS epidemic reversed?

How was the AIDS epidemic reversed? | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"If ever there was a demonstration of the power of science, it is the course of the fight billed 'Mankind v AIDS'. Until 1981 the disease (though already established in parts of Africa) was unknown to science. Within a decade it passed from being seen as primarily a threat to gay men, and then to promiscuous heterosexuals, to being a plague that might do to some parts of Africa what the Black Death did to medieval Europe. But now, though 1.6m people a year still die of it, that number is on a downward trajectory­, and AIDS rarely makes the headlines any more. How was this achieved?  The answer has two parts: sound science and international co-operation."

The Ebola epidemic has dominated headlines recently.  In their haste, it has been lost on that media the scary medical story of the 20th century (AIDS) that was going to doom Africa is now a success story.  Some of the stories about Ebola have treated Africa as one monolithic place--Africa is not a single story.

With developing science and the preaching of safe sex AIDS is on a downward curve in the number of deaths that it causes.  With the advancement of science and medicine it has been found what is working for those with AIDS and what combinations are found to be most beneficial.  Along with medicine however the topic of safe sex is being presented to people around the world.  With these strides that are being made AIDS is not as large of a topic as it was in the past.

The European Space Agency launched the Rosetta mission in 2004 and this week it completed its primary mission: Land on a comet.

 

In its travels the spacecraft has zipped by Mars, snapped a few shots of the asteroids Steins and Lutetia, mostly hibernated for three years awaiting a rendezvous with the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

 

Rosetta includes a main mother ship and Philae, the craft that actually landed on the comet. Rosetta will be the first spacecraft to land on and escort a comet as it enters our inner solar system, observing at close range how the comet changes as it hurtles towards the Sun.

What’s the deal with Antarctica and the Arctic?

What’s the deal with Antarctica and the Arctic? | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"Perhaps the biggest misunderstanding is that the Arctic and Antarctic are similar. One’s in the north and the other is in the south; but other than that, they’re the same, right? No, this couldn’t be more wrong. These polar opposites are literally polar opposites.
For starters, the Arctic is a small, shallow ocean surrounded by land: Eurasia, Greenland, Canada and the United States. It’s only about 5 ½ million square miles, which is five times smaller than the Atlantic and 11 times smaller than the Pacific. Antarctica, on the other hand, is a continent surrounded by the entire Southern Ocean.

This may seem like no big deal, but it makes all the difference in the world. It takes a lot of energy to change water temperature compared to what it takes to change land temperature, which means Arctic seawater isn’t as cold as the continental ice sheet covering Antarctica. So, the Arctic sea ice (frozen sea water) is about 10 feet thick, whereas the Antarctic ice sheet (compacted freshwater ice) is over a mile thick."

This article is pretty cool and interesting. With the fact that English in the US and English in the UK are not the same many people can be confused. A lot of words are said the same but actually mean something really different. This can be sometimes a problem because if someone from the UK comes to the US they might be offended with out you knowing because the meaning to them can be different. And same goes to anyone who visits the UK . I think its pretty cool how so many words are the same but have a whole different meaning behind them. Its kinda crazy how just English can change and be different types of English and not just one.

"This program, Boundaries and Borderlands, introduces the case study approach of the course. Here we examine the borderland region between the regions of North America and Latin America. The first case study, Twin Cities, Divided Lives, follows the story of Concha Martinez as she crosses between the U.S. and Mexico in order to make a life for herself and her children.  The second case study, Operation Hold the Line, follows up the question of cross-border migration raised in the first program. It takes a look at how U.S. border policy is shaping the lives of not only the people living in this borderland region, but in more distant U.S. and Mexican locations as well."

Space in a home matters, but the functionality of that space is critical.  Geography is about spatial thinking, and this video promotes a different type of spatial thinking, but one that still will help geographic thought.  As our metropolitan areas get more and more crowded, planning of this type might become increasingly common.  What advantages to you see in interior design that seek s to maximize space?  What are some drawbacks to a design such as this?

Nicole Kearsch's curator insight, November 17, 1:03 PM

Acid attacks on women seem to be more common than people may believe.  In Pakistan this is no different.  Someone can purchase quite easily a bottle of acid for very cheap, less than a dollar, and throw it in a woman's face and probably won't be charged.  Although it is now a crime not many assaults end up in court, and those that do usually don't make it to a decision.  Musarat Misbah was the owner of an upscale salon and is working to support these woman who are victims of acid attacks.  She has set up a fund to take donations after meeting someone who was victim of such an attack and asked her to make her beautiful again.  After reaching out to victims with the desire to help she has begun training them to themselves be beauticians and help others feel pampered.  I think that this woman is incredible.  She is one person who is doing more than anyone else in Pakistan for these innocent women who for whatever reason have become victim to such brutal attacks.  Not only has she set up a resource for these women to help pay for the many surgeries they have to go through to get their face back to looking somewhat like a face, but has also given them a job where they can feel comfortable among each other, knowing that they too have gone through the same things.
