Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 13, 8:20 AM

There is a geography to insurgency.   This dam controls both the energy and water resources in the region, which gives the insurgents/rebels/terrorists greater local power.  On a related noted, this op-ed entitled, "How America Lost the Middle East" has plenty of foreign policy and geopolitical material worth discussing.  


Nancy Watson's curator insight, August 17, 5:28 PM

Geography plays an important part in the success or failure of a state. This gives the insurgents an advantage.

Afghan Brides Dress To Impress, Fueling An Unlikely Business Boom

Afghan Brides Dress To Impress, Fueling An Unlikely Business Boom | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
In one of the world's poorest countries, where many women still wear head-to-toe burqas, lavish spending and competition among brides is fueling a boom in shops selling pricey and glamorous dresses.

 

Afghans live in one of the world's poorest countries — but you wouldn't know that from their lavish wedding ceremonies. Families sell possessions and borrow money . This wedding culture is part of the reason there's been a boom in women's dress shops in my neighborhood in Kabul, the Afghan capital.

 

It's still one of the most jarring contradictions in Afghanistan: watching women wearing headscarves, or full, head-to-toe blue burkas, walking down the street past store windows full of glamorous, low-cut gowns.

The merging of traditional and popular cultures makes for some of the more jarring and unexpected portions of the cultural mosaic.  Globalization is creating more unanticipated juxtapositions.

Cartographic Anomalies: How Map Projections Have Shaped Our Perceptions of the World

Cartographic Anomalies: How Map Projections Have Shaped Our Perceptions of the World | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Elizabeth Borneman explores how cartography and cartographic projections help and hinder our perception of the world.

"How do you think the world (starting with our perceptions) could change if the map looked differently? What if Australia was on top and the hemispheres switched? By changing how we look at a map we truly can begin to explore and change our assumptions about the world we live in."

 

Geography doesn’t just teach us about the Earth; it provides ways for thinking about the Earth that shapes how we see the world.  Maps do the same; they represent a version of reality and that influences how we think about places.

Generational Divide on Israel and Palestine

Generational Divide on Israel and Palestine | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
Young Americans are showing far less fervent support for Israel than older generations.

 

Many older Americans can still recall the Six-Day War in 1967 or the Yom Kippur War in 1973, during which Israel’s very existence seemed to be threatened by its Arab neighbors. 

 By contrast, “young Americans have grown up with Israel as an incredible superpower in the region, and with occupation and intifada,” said Ira Stup of J Street, the liberal-leaning pro-Israel lobby group. “Young Americans often have a vision of Israel vis-a-vis Palestine that is more in line with what is going on now.”

There is no mistaking the depth of the generational split. 

Late last month, Gallup asked Americans whether Israel’s recent actions against Hamas were justified or unjustified. Those who were 65 or older backed Israel by a wide margin: 55 percent to 31 percent. But those aged between 18 and 29, said by more than a two-to-one margin — 51 percent to 25 percent — that Israel’s actions were unjustified.

Photo series - Mina, The City of Tents | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Mina is a small city located inside a low lying valley in the province of Makkh, in western Saudi Arabia, about 8 km to the east of the Holy city of Mecca. Inside the 20 square km valley, tents cover every open space, as far as the eye can see, neatly arranged, row after row. It is in these tents Hajj pilgrims stay overnight during the five days of each Haj season. For the rest of the year, Mina remains pretty much deserted.

David Week's curator insight, August 12, 8:12 PM

This is possibly the worst chart in the world!

(a) you can't cluster cultures like this, you lose what matters: Geertz's thick (vs thin) description;

(b) the idea that Protestant Europe or English Speaking cultures value "self expression" vs "survival values" has never been inside a corporate workspace where many people spend many of their lives, or surveyed the incomes of artists in these countries.


(c) Secularity and rationality are also traditions, going back hundreds or even thousands of years.

(d) The idea that as cultures develop, the move towards Protestant Europe is the silliest, most blatantly ethnocentric statement I've seen in a long time.

Let's hope that people are not being trained using this BS.
