How the warming Arctic might be behind Boston's deep freeze | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
There may be a counterintuitive explanation for the deep freeze that hit New England this winter: The rapidly warming Arctic is causing big disruptions in the jet stream, which carries weather across North America. Is this the worst winter you've experienced?

The Geographic Advantage

The Geographic Advantage | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
We are living in an era of receding glaciers, accelerating loss of species habitat, unprecedented population migration, growing inequalities within and between nations, rising concerns over resource depletion, and shifting patterns of interaction and identity. This website provides 11 geographic investigations aligned to the geographic questions in the NRC Understanding Our Changing Planet report. The report focuses on the future directions in the geographical sciences and how these key questions will guide research to help us understand the planet on which we live.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, February 24, 2:54 PM

The four aspects the geographic advantage (as conceptualized by former AAG president Susan Hanson and solidified by the AAG team--see powerpoint) are:

1.  Relationships between people and the environment

2.  Importance of spatial variability

3.  Processes operating an multiple and interlocking geographic scales

4.  The integration of spatial and temporal analysis

 

To ensure that this advantage is harnessed, the AAG prepared 11 modules within these 4 categories of key issue facing the world:

--Environmental Change

--Sustainability

--Rapid Spatial Reorganization

--Technological Change

Norka McAlister's curator insight, February 28, 6:49 PM

Location, climate, culture, and economic problems affect how people do things in certain environments around the world. The article mentions that schools “should be eating what grows around you,” but we cannot always rely on local agriculture since some products could actually cause more health problems for the public. Educational institutions, especially for children, should be the most concerned with this issue. Schools systems should be trained and ensure that their lunchroom meals adhere to nutritional standards and offer healthy choices for their students. Another problem is that some region’s agriculture may be affected by the climate and low farm budgets which forces schools to have to settle for non-natural and unhealthy food options in order to reduce costs

Les IGH sont soumis, selon leur type, à un règlement de sécurité particulier édicté initialement par l'arrêté du 30 décembre 2011 (remplaçant l'arrêté du 18 octobre 1977). Ce texte a subi depuis de nombreuses modifications successives destinées à la mise en œuvre des principes de sécurité définis à l'article R 122-9 du Code de la construction et de l'habitation :


  • « permettre de vaincre le feu avant qu'il n'ait atteint une dangereuse extension », notamment en divisant l'immeuble en compartiments (niveaux isolés les uns des autres) et demi compartiments (par niveaux) capables d'empêcher la propagation de l'incendie de l'un à l'autre, et en limitant les sources de matériaux combustibles (limitation du potentiel calorifique à 400 MJ/m² en général) ;
  • assurer une évacuation horizontale et verticale aisée des occupants, notamment par la présence de circulations de dimensions adaptées à l'effectif présent, d'au moins deux escaliers par compartiment ;
  • assurer une détection rapide de l'incendie, et mettre à disposition des moyens efficaces de lutte contre l'incendie ;
  • empêcher le passage des fumées d'incendie de la zone sinistrée aux compartiments indemnes ;
  • empêcher la propagation d'un incendie frappant le voisinage de ce bâtiment à l'IGH (volume de protection).


Les propriétaires sont tenus de maintenir et d’entretenir les installations en conformité avec la réglementation IGH, sous le contrôle de la Commission consultative départementale de sécurité et d'accessibilité territorialement compétente.


--------


La notion d’établissements recevant du public :

Le terme établissement recevant du public (ERP), défini à l'article R.123-2 du code de la construction et de l’habitation (CCH), désigne tous bâtiments, locaux et enceintes dans lesquels des personnes sont admises, soit librement, soit moyennant une rétribution ou une participation quelconque, ou dans lesquels sont tenues des réunions ouvertes à tout venant ou sur invitation, payantes ou non.


Sont considérées comme faisant partie du public toutes les personnes admises dans l’établissement à quelque titre que ce soit en plus du personnel. 

La définition d’ERP regroupe un très grand nombre d'établissements comme les cinémas, théâtres, magasins, bibliothèques, écoles, universités, hôtels, restaurants, hôpitaux, les établissements flottants (péniches à quai), etc., que ce soient des structures fixes ou provisoires (chapiteaux, ou structures gonflables).


Les mesures qui doivent être respectées par les constructeurs, propriétaires et exploitants des ERP, sont déterminées compte tenu de la nature de l’exploitation, des dimensions des locaux, du mode de construction et du nombre de personnes pouvant être admises dans l’établissement.


C’est pourquoi les ERP sont classés par types en fonction de la nature de leur exploitation et par catégories en fonction du nombre de personnes accueillies à l’intérieur des établissements.

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.

In Louisiana, Desire for a French Renaissance

In Louisiana, Desire for a French Renaissance | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
From a long-running radio show to bilingual street signs, efforts are being made to preserve a vernacular once repressed by law.

 

This radio show is part of a conscious effort to sustain an iteration of French that followed its own evolutionary path here, far from the famed vigilance of the Académie française.  Many now believe Louisiana French to be endangered, even as other aspects of the state's rural culture flourish amid the homogenizing forces of modern life.  "We're not losing the music.  We're not losing the food," Mr. Layne said from his office, Ville Platte, a city of 7,500 about two and a half hours west of New Orleans. "But we're losing what I think is the most important thing, which is language."

Mexico's 'maquiladora' labor system keeps workers in poverty

Mexico's 'maquiladora' labor system keeps workers in poverty | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"Some four decades after welcoming foreign assembly plants and factories, known as maquiladoras, Mexico has seen only a trickle of its industrial and factory workers join the ranks of those who even slightly resemble a middle class." 

 

Despite making such consumer goods like BlackBerry smartphones, plasma TVs, appliances and cars that most people in the US, for instance, consider necessities, Mexican workers in these factories seldom get to enjoy these items because, as this article argues, the labor system keeps them in poverty.  Foreign investment in these businesses keep unions out and attracts workers from poorer areas, allowing low-cost labor to prevail.  Less than $8 a day is the going wage - great for the bottom line and consumer prices but very bleak for those who toil in this system.

This article talks about how the maquiladora labor system dosen't provide enough money for it's workers. Many in Mexico are living in poverty and can't afford much more than dinner because of their low wages.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, February 4, 2014 12:47 PM

The labor system keeps workers in Poverty. This is the argument that is transitioned by stating the fact that many factory workers are and will always remian in poverty if they have no oppurtunity to move up in the food chain and become educated in order to get themselves out of poverty. They need different skills in order to aquire a better job to create a better life.  

Edgar Manasseh Jr.'s curator insight, February 11, 11:33 PM

Its a very sad situation reading this. Seeing people go through all this to just survive. Kids don't even get any education and follow their parents footsteps to work at a plant just to be able to pay for bills. 8 dollars a day, and you wonder why they try to run to united states. Its very unfortunate that a lot of people go through this and i hope it changes soon, because to see that this is going on makes me thankful for what i have around me. Foreign investors are not great as they set out to be take advantage of the poor and get rich out of it, i think its pretty ridiculous.
