His Holiness speaks on importance of Tibetan language learning

His Holiness speaks on importance of Tibetan language learning | KochAPGeography | Scoop.it
KochAPGeography's insight:

Be sure to read past the mere idea of the Tibetan language's suitability for Buddhist thought.  Clearly, religion, langauge, and politics are all present in urging linguistic resurgence.

China now eats twice the meat we do

China now eats twice the meat we do | KochAPGeography | Scoop.it
We can learn a lot from examining the way China's diet has changed in the last 20 years -- as well as its required efficiencies and the agriculture that supports it.

 

Egad! The United States still consumes more meat per capita than China, but as China's economy has grown (along with its income and standard of living), the consumer habits have changed as well.  What will the impacts of the rise in Chinese meat consumption mean?

Brett Sinica's curator insight, November 29, 2013 2:07 PM

This is actuallty very believable considering the population growth that China has experienced.  It only makes sense that the more people there are, the more meat will be consumed.  It is part of their cuisine to include meat.  Pork and chicken are among many of the popular proteins which are found on their dishes.  There is also the expansion to go along with all of the growth.  The landscape of the eastern part of the country has become more agriculturally accomodating for crops and livestock alike.  Therefore to match the trend of growing population, is the need to match it with meat and other foods.

China now eats twice as much meat than America. However, this chart does not touch upon "per-capita" which plays a major role in where the food is being dispersed and consumed. 

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, December 15, 1:55 PM

China's meat demand is being met by importing meat. As the standard of living rises more of China's population are looking to branch out in regards to their diet, what is interesting is that this is also an example of cultures blending. Food is a great indicator of cultural diffusion. As China becomes more globalized we are seeing their diet and consumption patterns becoming less local and tradition.

China 'should move to two-child policy' - Telegraph

China 'should move to two-child policy' - Telegraph | KochAPGeography | Scoop.it
Interesting look at rethinking the one-child policy in the world's most populous country. Would we expect dramatic changes in birth rates and total fertility?

"China should immediately end its one-child policy and instead adopt a two-child scheme, a foundation with close links to the highest levels of the Communist party has said."
