Joseph Thacker 's curator insight, April 20, 7:07 PM

Few people populate most of Australia’s land, which appears yellow on this map. The 2% who live in this large area must be self-sufficient, as I am sure there are not many stores one can buy goods from. Most of the yellow area is dry land and receives small amounts rainfall. Many dangerous snakes and spiders live in the yellow area, as well. By looking at the rainfall map, one can understand why many people live on the outer edges of Australia. 

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, April 23, 3:06 PM

Only 2% of Australia's population lives in the yellow area which is very surprising because who is living in the rest of the area in Australia. What is happening to the natural sources and the resources that help the economy and where do they fit in especially in this map. 

Jess Deady's curator insight, May 4, 7:02 PM

Coastal living is what Australia's all about. Why go to Australia to live away from the ocean? The major cities are all located on the coasts so thats where people want to be. Thats where every major event is taking place and where they can get all their resources needed to live.

In a nation of 230 million people, 700 languages and some 300 ethnicities, ethnic Chinese are one of Indonesia’s historic minorities.

 

Religion and ethnicity are often connected, but not always.  This case study of such a group, the Chinese Muslims of Indonesia, provide an interesting glimpse into the economic, historic and political patterns of these cultural groups that are parts of communal identities.

Paige McClatchy's curator insight, October 24, 2013 6:51 PM

These flags have a lot in common: I know at least from my own background that green is the color of Islam (in fact, I studied a Newsweek cover about the new "Green Scare" comparing Green/Islam to Red/Communism in the minds of Americans). Each flag is also beautifully geometric, keeping in line with the  inheritance of Islamic art. Of course the US Coalition would design such an ignorant flag for Iraq- we basically thought it was ours in 2004. Quick in, quick out, everyone wins. As we know today that is not the case....

Brett Sinica's curator insight, October 29, 2013 1:11 PM

Many of these countries share similar backgrounds and cultures, as well as flags which is seen above.  The color patterns show red, black,  white, and green on almost every flag except Israel's which is blue and white.  It shows that most of the countries within the region are all linked somehow whether it be through language, identity, or other reasons, though there is still room for conflict and change as time passes.  After looking at flags from other countries such as Iraq and Iran, the graphics on them change, sometimes reflecting government changes.  It is sometimes difficult to remember and notice so many flags, yet some of these flags have changed within the last 2 to 3 decades to accompany the change of government.

Amy Marques's curator insight, April 24, 11:06 AM

This goes to show how a flag is supposed to represent the people who live in their country. And the flag of Israel really does stick out like a sore thumb. We have the crescent moon, the typical Arabic colors of green, red, black, and white, and the blue and white really doesn't have much to do with the history of the people who live in Israel, only the new Jewish community who live there, but not the Palestinians.

This should definitely be a major concern for the human planet becasue if people are multiplying that quickly and staying alive longer than the futre could be facing some serious problems. For example; the food supply could run low, shelter could definitely become scarce, diease could become a high risk becuase there are so many people that are close which means they could be sharing a number of things.

Population pyramids: Powerful predictors of the future

This article shows how human settlement patterns have changed over  time in California. We can see here that the culture of the native groups has changed over time due to their change in location which led to different resources, and eventually to changes in their overall civilizations. The article helps illustrate this idea through a map that shows where the groups have settled, so we can see what resources and changes in culture would have occurred over time.

Stacey Jackson's curator insight, March 16, 2013 6:58 PM

The demographic situation in Europe appears unsustainable from this article. The birth rate is declining, while lifespans are steadily increasing. Obviously, this will put a strain on Europe's social welfare system-- increasing expenses and declining revenue. The approach taken by Laviano seems like a band aid. The mayor is giving women money for having children. This doesn't address the issue long term. How will they have enough money to cover other services if they are giving everyone money to have babies?

Al Picozzi's curator insight, October 6, 2013 9:28 PM

Amazing to see that the birth rates are so low in Europe.  When at one time there were soo many people that many of them were part of the huge immigration to the US in the 19th and early 20th century.  Now some of these nations are having worker shortages as their populations get older.  The result of this is workers from other countries moving into European countries to work and fill the jobs.  This in turn has led to racial tensions in some European countires where people are stating that the jobs are being taken by these foregin workers.  However, it is the people of these countries that have having fewer children, whether it be a lifestyle choice or just plain economic factors.  It becomes a circular argument eventaully.  Will there be a change in the birth rate in Europe?  Only time will tell, but by the looks of itm it is not going to be anytime soon.  

Kenny Dominguez's curator insight, November 20, 2013 2:39 PM
That is very odd because usually it is the Europeans who want to have many kids. It seems that the Europeans are not so interested in having kids. They just want to enjoy their lives to the fullest. Not having kids could be a bad thing for the population. One reason would be the family genes would be gone because there are no more family members to keep it going. There is one good thing to the decrease of population, which are less people to care for in the world. But Europe should have seen this coming because there was at one point in time there were the most populated country now it has changed to the least populated who would have thought that would happen. But having kids is a great accomplishment that not everyone can have. Many people have disease that stop the production of having kids.

The 2013 World Population Data Sheet lists all geopolitical entities with populations of 150,000 or more and all members of the UN. These include sovereign states, dependencies, overseas departments, and some territories whose status or boundaries may be undetermined or in dispute.

 

More developed regions, following the UN classification, comprise all of Europe and North America, plus Australia, Japan, and New Zealand.

 

All other regions and countries are classified as less developed.

 

The least developed countries consist of 49 countries with especially low incomes, high economic vulnerability, and poor human development indicators; 34 of these countries are in sub-Saharan Africa, 14 in Asia, and one in the Caribbean.

 

The criteria and list of countries, as defined by the United Nations, can be found at http://www.unohrlls.org/en/ldc/25/. ;

The human popluation debate will always seem to be an issue. One can almost assume that the less developed countries are going to have the highest popluation but the most problems as well. A country that is classified as less developed are most definitely going to have low incomes due to the low number of jobs available, poor human development because there isn't enough people to be taking care of each other.
