Universities and students are complacent about the racial prejudice on campus. As long as it is ignored, it will continue to flourish

Dalton Denmark's insight:

i think that these accounts of racism are nonexistent, it is people fathoming something that doesn't exist, finding something to complain about which in turn creates distraction from real problems in need of being solved.

with Russia's threat to the united states as to the consequences of a military intervention concerning their invasion of Ukraine's Crimea region, i see a simple solution yet mine completely differs from that of the popular idea that there is a need to intervene, i believe that we should not worry about it, allow them to take care of it themselves especially with the threat of Russia seeking military violence.

A provocative title, but are our cities and urban settlement patterns shifting?  Is sprawl going to be curtailed by cultural, environmental and economic forces?

Dalton Denmark's insight:

this passage clearly, with statistics informs us the monumental impact we can make on the earth with our current habits, however it also shows us that there is hope to be able to prevent making such an impact for the worse, and work ourselves down to being able to make an impact on the earth that leaves it better than we found it.       -Dalton

When suburban areas starting increasing, it had several advantages- Bigger homes, better education, a yard to call your own. These advantages are beginning to be shadowed by several factors that are actually pushing people out of these suburban areas and changing the urban pattern in our cities. Will people start to swarm in the central business district, or will rural areas reign? -Brooke

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, December 15, 2014 1:34 PM

This article shows how trends in energy consumption and the economy can affect geographies of development. After WWII, the United States hit an unprecedented economic boom. Large amounts of cheap oil combined with economic growth spurred the development of infrastructure and cities dependent on automobiles. Since people no longer had to live in the cities to work in them, they began developed outside of the city. Today, oil is becoming more and more expensive, which could mean the end of the age of the automobile. Since cities remain to be hubs of employment and business, people can no longer afford to drive long distances for their daily commutes. People are beginning to move into cities or along public transportation lines in order to more feasibly get to work. 

Rachel Phillips's curator insight, January 29, 2015 2:39 PM

Over the past 10-15 years, the suburbs grew dramatically, and have become less popular.  In the early 2000s it thrived because the economy was doing well, and technological advances were in hyper speed.  I was a bit shocked that it's slowed and that it's being reported that suburbs are coming to an end, but then it it started to make sense.  The unemployment rate was extremely high, as were gas prices.  It only makes sense that less people would be building or buying larger home with bigger cars and more appliances.  But, it was possibly better for our environment.  Less miles being driven means less pollution by cars, less electricity being used never hurts.  But now, gas prices have dropped again, and the unemployment rate has dropped as well. But, today we have so many alternatives to gasoline run cars and common electricity, that even if suburbs made a huge comeback, they wouldn't be the same as they were before.

How a Gold Mining Boom is Killing the Children of Nigeria

How a Gold Mining Boom is Killing the Children of Nigeria | migration | Scoop.it
It is a pattern seen in various parts of the world — children being sickened from exposure to lead from gold mining and processing.

 

One of the core concepts in geo-literacy is the ability to make connections between seemingly unrelated issues.  Resource production for a global market is a topic is far-reaching implications and interconnections.     


Via Seth Dixon
Dalton Denmark's insight:

gold mining poses many beneficial aspects to the abismal economy that africa posesses, however the lead poisoning and possible loss o a generation to me is too big of a risk to jeapordize. with that i do acknowledge why it is tempting to continue and just cope with the health deteririation and develop methods to try and circumvent this problem, however that in my opinion would be a very ignorant decision, this is a prime example of a "rock and a hard place" scenario, but i believe the best decision that could be made would be to substantiate a differant practice, and avoid gold mining. -Dalton Denmark

The Crew's curator insight, November 26, 2013 9:35 AM

While gold mining is economically beneficial to Nigeria, it is not acceptable for the exposure of lead from the mining and processing to affect the health of children. You are ruining the lives of youth, some who may be future miners. Ultimately, is the money aspect of this situation outweighing the risk of wiping out a generation?

Australians have been told they will need to embrace genetically modified foods as the world faces an uphill struggle to feed its growing population.

Via James Green
Dalton Denmark's insight:

this passage struck me as an amazing fundamental step towards genetically modified foods. as this passage solely explicits the fact that with genetically modified foods being grown we are able to have a better way to feed the world. this passage also contradicts most oppositions towards GMO's because the suggestion of australia resorting to these crops shows that they are able to be approved for sale meaning they pose no harm to humans and also no harm towards the environment, otherise they wouldnt be able to be sold at all especially not by an entire continent. this may also lead to a broader acceptance of genetically modified foods which by many is considred the future of agriculture including myself, and this is so because they are approved by a whole continent and will most likely appear more often in super markets which should boost the confidence of possible consumers about eating them. therefor this passage very well describes the coming of a very possible phenomenon known, as genetic modification.

Dalton Denmark's insight:

i base my conclusion on the fact that is simply an irrational statement to say that a professional university would fail certain people based solely on ethnicity or color, i would say that the students complaining are simply disappointed with their lack of success, that should be the origin of study to decide whether or not the university is basing the grades of their students on such petty things

E-Cigs Breath Life into a Dying Industry

E-Cigs Breath Life into a Dying Industry | migration | Scoop.it

Like many smokers, Dan wants to quit.

 

He has heard that electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes, eCigs or vapour cigarettes, might be helpful. But with all the controversy about them in the news and on the internet, he isn’t sure.

 

Dan is skeptical, he has noticed e-cigarettes are not just sold in pharmacies like other quit smoking aids. They can be found at convenience stores and gas stations often strategically placed near conventional cigarettes. Dan also knows that tobacco companies are making them and he doesn’t trust that they would make a product to help people quit smoking.

Dalton Denmark's insight:

this passage has the words breathes life into a dying industry in its title and yet throughout the entire passage there is nothing which describes a dying industry, overall this passage was very unhelpful to any aspect i pose over smoking electronically or indifferant and i deem it in my personal opinion pointless to this site, it is all from one mans perspective it is very anticlimatic and i see no point behind it. to me it is completely and utterly worthless, ecigarettes can be very controversal and i expected more from this passage because the title built it up so much, i wouldnt recommend for anyone to waste their time reading it

Migrants add 5.8m to bulging Britain

Migrants add 5.8m to bulging Britain | migration | Scoop.it

Immigrants will be the main force in a 10 million rise in Britain’s ballooning population within the next 25 years, equivalent to a city bigger than London.

 

The Office for National Statistics said the population would rise by 9.6 million by 2037, reaching 73.3 million people.

About 60 per cent of the increase, equal to 5.8 million people, is linked to immigration, either from new arrivals or people having children when they settle.

The figures will put David Cameron’s pledge to reduce net migration to “tens of thousands” by the end of this Parliament under growing scrutiny. The ONS said Britain can expect 165,000 immigrants a year until 2037.

It comes amid growing concerns about a new wave of migrants from Bulgaria and Romania next year, when restrictions are being lifted.

The new wave of migration could lead to 50,000 people a year moving to this country. Observers fear Britain is facing an “unsustainable” influx of migrants.

 

Sir Andrew Green, chairman of Migration Watch UK, said the figures underlined the need to have a net migration target and stick to it.

“These latest projections confirm that we are still on course for a substantial increase in population,” he said.

“By the end of the next parliament, the population will have increased by three million, the equivalent of Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff and Aberdeen.”

The ONS said that by 2037 an additional 4.2 million immigrants would come to Britain. The children of immigrants would account for a further 1.6 million rise in the population.

The number of primary schoolchildren will rise by 13 per cent to reach 5.7 million by mid-2037.

Over the same period, the number of secondary school age children will rise by 10 per cent to 4.1 million.

Official figures show that almost one in five pupils in primary education now speak another language in home, with native English speakers in a minority in several inner London areas.

Leading academics warn that the education system is at crisis point because of the lack of primary school places.

Paul Vickers, the head of government policy at the ONS, said: “The whole purpose of producing the research is to inform government policy and resource decisions. One of the major issues is the allocation of schools places.”

Earlier this week a review commissioned by the government found that migrants were filling a fifth of jobs in key industries because of a lack of skilled British graduates.

The review, published by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, found that companies were forced to rely on foreign-born workers in a range of “strategically important” areas as children shun maths and science.

David Cameron said last week that Britain must “say no” to Eastern European workers by making young people more able and willing to compete with immigrants.

The Prime Minister said that in factories across the country up to half of the workforce came from Eastern European countries such as Poland and Lithuania.

He said it was a “cruel fact” that a generation of young Britons could be “left behind” and fail to share in the benefits of the economic recovery because they lacked the skills to secure a job.

Dalton Denmark's insight:

this exhibition of a specific country facing the strain of resources, in this case primarily jobs, is able to stress the seriousness of the epedimic which is rapid population growth. also the troubles elaborated upon here are sort of a trend because there is going to be further documentation of the strain of resources in other countries farther into the future. and finally you also have to acknowledge the fact that not only jobs will be in short supply, ALL resources will grow to be in short supply, maybe not in my lifetime or yours however solutions still need to be sought after TODAY, as inhabitants of the world we should look to preserve the earth which provides for us, and you tell me, how are we doing? -Dalton Denmark

The ESRC project includes funding for research fellowships and additional grants to its existing investments such as COMPAS and the Centre on Population Change. The recipients of these grants have committed to conducting various research programmes that are relevant for the debate leading up to next year’s referendum on Scottish independence.
