Joy Kinley's curator insight, May 17, 2:41 PM
It is unimaginable to think that any pilot would be expected to fly multiple missions at night in a plane made of wood.  Not only did these women do this, they were among the most feared pilots of WWII.

Anyone who wants to be president needs to understand these 5 maps

Anyone who wants to be president needs to understand these 5 maps | Mr. D's AP US History | Scoop.it

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 22, 12:11 AM

These 5 maps in this article are a sneak peek preview from the new book Connectography by Parag Khanna.  These maps all highlight interactions across political borders which is Khanna's big thesis.  For example, the map above emphasizes political, economic, and environmental linkages of NAFTA and minimizes the national divisions.

Food waste is a tragedy that we all know happens, but the economic system does not work efficiently to maximize the global food production (Disclaimer: it is HBO's John Oliver, so there is some language and references that might not be appropriate for all audiences).
