Indian Independence and the Question of Partition

The partition of 1947, which led to the creation of India and Pakistan, was one of the most volatile events of the twentieth century. Partition coincided with the end of British colonial rule over the subcontinent, and Indian independence was overshadowed by violence, mass displacement, and uncertainty.

If you think the environment is insignificant to your needs, then you are one of the most arrogant and ignorant people to walk on the planet that you're killing.

 

This is your life.  It doesn't matter how much money you're going to make off of destroying it if you're going to be dead as a result of your destruction.

 

Think carefully people.

 

Enjoy.

 

And, think about it.

Unbelievable, tremendous resource. I wish I had this one growing up. It is a US gov site (EPA), and is for US geography. I'm betting you can search around for similar sites for other locales around the world. Great demo. Demo runs on Adobe Captivate. The demo took a little bit of time to load on a wired connection through a high speed fiber optic connection. Or skip the demo and play around with the maps. Site not all that fast. Still, it's worth waiting for if you want the data.

Joseph Thacker 's curator insight, March 29, 6:57 PM

It is amazing how so much could be built in roughly 20 years. Dubai in the early 1990's was basically a desert with a few buildings. Today, it is the most futuristic and impressive city in the world. Having the world’s tallest skyscraper, along with many other impressive buildings, Dubai is setting the bar high for many other large cities throughout the world.

The people of UAE know they will not have oil rich fields forever. As a result, they spend huge amounts of money on their impressive city with the hopes of attracting wealthy people from all around the world to visit.  

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, April 1, 10:48 AM

This series of pictures shows the extremely rapid growth of Dubai. An extremely wealthy city, the oil richness of Dubai has allowed for it to grow at an unprecedented rate from a desert to a sprawling metropolis. Such an impressive city springing up in a desolate desert speaks to how much resources can dictate where and how city growth occurs.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, April 14, 5:13 PM

 Dubai has drastically changed throughtout it's time before the globalization boom and was one of the only cities to be impacted positively by globalization. As you can see from the depiction that Dubai in 1991 was a deserted place and then in 2005 it transformed into becoming somewhat of a city. In 2012 this city drastically transformed in order to help the globalization process and the whole city in general was trasformed into a mega city.

If you haven't seen this classic, don't wait one more minute! Creates a paradigm shift!

Did you Know? Shift Happens, and it is happening at an exponential rate. Half of this 2012 version maybe obsolete. Time, and technology, does not stand still.

D Langen's curator insight, August 22, 9:50 AM

It has been interesting to watch the "Did You Know" videos updated over the years. The first was profound for me as a teacher and I continued to use the updated versions for years.

Human Development Index variation

Human Development Index variation | Ncea Geography | Scoop.it

"Here's how the United States looks when it is measured on the county level by the same standards used to rank countries by the UN, the Human Development Index.  Five variables are taken into account: life expectancy, income per capita, school enrollment, percentage of high school graduates, and percentage of college graduates."

My thought when I see this map is if Alaska was to scale the low indicator is of off the charts. Also note the dark areas are on the main road systems and include 2 large military bases. The author is focused on the south, but does not say anything about the north. Interesting.

Ms. Harrington's curator insight, March 26, 6:57 PM

Regional patterns?

Brian Altonen's curator insight, March 26, 9:18 PM

A WHO map of what life in the U.S. is like demonstrates the role of urbanization and heavily population regions for defining where U.N.'s Human Development Index scores are highest.

Three of the metrics pertain primarily to education.  The fourth is a measure of financial success for a region.  The fifth is most likely a consequence of scoring well for these first four measures.

An obvious next step in making additional use of this map is to compare its findings with the distributions of various language, culture and ethnic groups in this country, according to most recent US Census patterns.
