Hmm, I've already begun the process of cleaning out apps, images, books and other "stuff" from each of my devices, (must get the 128Gb version next time :). 800+ apps are really probably 750 too many :).

The Ultimate Guide to Freeing Up Space on Your iPhone in iOS 7

The Ultimate Guide to Freeing Up Space on Your iPhone in iOS 7 | Libraries | Scoop.it
Running out of storage space on your iPhone is annoying, but trying to free some up is downright aggravating. Until they figure out a way to throw a terabyte of flash memory in there, you're going to have to do some spring cleaning every now and then. The biggest storage hogs are usually photos and videos, but there's also the infamous other, which can claim up to 10 GB of space if you're not careful. Deleting a few pictures and movies might help you out of a jam, but if you're continually getting that "not enough available storage" warning, you've got to dig deeper. How to Free Up Storage

Primate Cities: Mexico City

Jason Wilhelm's curator insight, May 22, 12:24 PM

The concept of a primate city has both benefits and drawbacks for the country in which it is located. The large population of the primate city draws new technology and foreign investment into the country. Unfortunately, the large population of the primate city also leads to population and brain drain from the surrounding regions which can damage the overall economic and intellectual status of the country. 

Sid McIntyre-DeLaMelena's curator insight, May 29, 12:45 PM

Primate Cities are furthered studied using Mexico as an example.

Primate cities affect movement by having a greater pull on migrants.

John Nieuwendyk's curator insight, October 6, 2:49 PM

The spatial population of Mexico City is densely packed. The south-west side of the city or the Western Sector zone features upscale, wealthy neighborhoods. The north and eastern sectors of the city are densely populated and are the poorer sectors of the city. It is interesting looking at the city from a top-down aerial view. One can see that the wealthier western sector’s spatial geography is spread out more so than the poorer sectors and features more vegetation, possibly due to an environmentally friendly irrigation system.

Students need to learn and adapt math skills but also to codethis is the future. America is falling behind. They (Students) need to be taught at even younger ages then middle school and encouraged, This is true for girls as well as boys there is a disproportionate amount of boys to girls in the IT world and this is a disservice to them as well.
