Will World Governments Confiscate Gold?

Will World Governments Confiscate Gold? | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
As you can see I didn’t ask if the U.S. government will confiscate gold, but if world governments will. The exorbitant debt is global and today is so big that the risk of gold confiscation is global, not just in the U.S.

Why Almost Nobody Lives In Most Of Canada

Why Almost Nobody Lives In Most Of Canada | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"Canada: land-wise, it's one of the world's biggest countries, but population-wise, it's anything but.The map comes from the Government of Canada's 'Plant Hardiness Site,' which contains images showing 'Extreme Minimum Temperature Zones' throughout the Great White North."

Felix Ramos Jr.'s curator insight, January 30, 10:50 AM

This map and commentary is meant to put Canada's population-to-land ratio in perspective and a reason why the low ratio has developed.  Canada, although among the biggest landmasses out of any country in the world, is not heavily populated due, in large part, to its physical characteristics.  As the map shows, temperatures in most locations of the country are not conducive to plant-life.  Whereas agriculture is not the end-all be-all for human-life, the capability of growing crops definitely plays a factor in where populations were and are willing to cluster. 

Jared Medeiros's curator insight, February 4, 6:25 PM

 While Canada is very cold during the winter, to say that people shouldn't live there because plants don't might be a little excessive.  These temperatures are clearly only in the winter time and are extreme lows.  Canada in the summertime is quite beautiful, has plenty of vegetation and is probably very pleasant and comfortable to live.  Just like people who live in very hot, uncomfortable areas, i'm sure the inhabitants of Canada adapt to the colder season and take great pride in where they live.

Kevin Cournoyer's curator insight, April 8, 1:18 PM

It's a little strange to think that one of the world's largest countries in terms of area does not boast a very large population. Then again, when we think of Russia (the largest country by area in the world), many of its regions are uninhabited as well because of extreme climatic conditions. Countries like India, China, and Brazil, however, have enormous populations because they are located in more temperate zones, and so almost every area of the country is habitable.  There are places in every country, however, that are uninhabitable due to the terrain, the weather, or other factors. 

 

What we end up with, then, is the idea of geography as a misleading discipline. Okay, maybe the discipline itself is not misleading, but we have to be careful about making assumptions about a place based merely on its size or location. Some people may assume that some of the world's larger countries have strong and stable economies due to their size, but this is not always the case. Some of the most economically stable countries in the world are found in the relatively small nations of Europe. This map of Canada and the accompanying article, therefore, are a cautionary tale about taking things at face value and the importance of doing our own investigation and research.

Megacities Interactives | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"By 2025, the developing world, as we understand it now, will be home to 29 megacities. We explore the latest UN estimates and forecasts on the growth of these 'cities on steroids', and take a look at the challenges and opportunities megacities present for the tens of millions living in Lagos, Mexico City and Dhaka."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, October 27, 2014 8:53 AM

Through this BBC interactive mapping feature with rich call-out boxes, the reader can explore the latest UN estimates and forecasts on the growth of megacities (urban areas with over 10 million residents).  These 'cities on steroids' have been growing tremendously since the 1950s and present a unique set of geographic challenges and opportunities for their residents.   Also, this Smithsonian Magazine interactive (also on the rise of Megacities), argues that dealing with megacities is one of the traits of the Anthropocene. 


Download the BBC data as a CSV file to be able to import this into a customizable ArcGIS online map.  This will help you to create an analytical storymap (but I still enjoy a good narrative storymap).
