The city does not codify neighborhood boundaries, but unsung arbiters are using sites like Google Maps and Wikipedia to draw lines between, say, Park Slope and Gowanus in Brooklyn.

Looking at purchasing a house in the next year or so and this is one thing we have been looking at. Although we don't want to raise our own meat we would like to grow everything else we eat.

Good visual representation of what it would take to be self sufficient.

If you need a backyard that is about 2 acres to live off the land imagine how big of a backyard you would need if you had a family of 8.

The Separatist Map of Africa

The Separatist Map of Africa | McGehee Human Geography | Scoop.it

Edelin Espino's curator insight, December 5, 2014 11:04 AM

is sad to see how people just refer to it as "Africa" when every part has its own name. Even myself don't know many of them since they are irrelevant for the western people.

This interactive map does a great job of not only showing the sate of political struggles and military conflict within the whole of Africa. This shows the new countries many dissidents  and rebels wish to establish in order to give their people a cultural and ethnic home land. This give a good picture of simply how chaotic some parts of Africa truly are and how destabilized many regions are.
