Although the Apple prices in Brazil continue to be very high, because of high import taxes in Brazil, they are expected to gradually come down.

Toomey & Enos: The GeoBoys's curator insight, March 12, 2014 11:59 AM

This video shows an area/geography relation between the borders of countries and the importance of physical geography, all in the form of a song. The borders of countries are determined by barriers that were once unsurpassable, like a river or mountain range. The point is, these boundaries are what borders of countries lie upon, the edge of one place and the beginning of another.

Why Are States So Red and Blue?

Why Are States So Red and Blue? | North America | Scoop.it
Theories about our right-wing and left-wing mind-sets don't explain why they are tied to geography.

 

While not endorsing all the cultural assumptions in the article, this is still an interesting exploration into expalining why distinct places are are politically aligned with particular parties. 

 

Questions to ponder: What portions of the author's argument do you agree (or disagree) with?  What do you see as the reasons behind the spatial distributions of "blue" and "red" in the United States?
