If only the United States could embrace this lifestyle more. Sure there are farmers markets and other sources of food, but the mighty supermarket and food giants have completely taken over this country. A typical American wants quick and easy, but most of the time that comes with a price to pay. The mass produced food in the U.S. is the majority food source for many citizens, the foods likely are modified and have come from all over the world. Sure they are cheaper than a freshly grown products from a farmers market for example, but we as a nation and society let it come to this. The U.S. has land in variable climates to sustain itself year-round, but that isn't the cost friendly option for right now. Everything seems to be right now, not looking into the future. It is almost as though the country is too far down the road of industrial giants and their mass produced products, that backtracking to a time where we actually produced our own goods is out of the question. The least we can do at this point in time is try to buy local and help sustain what we already have before it's built on or forgotten about.
We all love chocolate. We all love diamonds and jewels. In western worlds, these items are easily come by in grocery stores and elsewhere, but what got them there was a challenge. People in poorer tropical regions around the world worked to get the raw goods of these delicate items we all enjoy. The payout difference is immense from cocoa to chocolate. It is sometimes a very crooked market where if it wasn't for the hard working people who get the raw ingredients, chocolate as we know it wouldn't be the same.
A former gang member from Long Beach, California, teaches break dancing to at-risk youth in Cambodia.
This video is a great example of cross-cultural interactions in the era of globalization. Urban youth culture of the United States is spread to Cambodia through a former refugee (with a personally complex political geography). What geographic themes are evident in this video? How is geography being reshaped and by what forces?
Off subject, but I recently started watching "My Name is Earl", a tv show which is based around karma and redoing wrongs in life. On a serious note, people who have done wrong in their lives to turn around and try bettering themselves and others around them is very admirable. When people normally think of helping the poor, its ship them some food and clothes and that's that. It's much more than that though, you have to help them help themselves. What "KK" has done has brought something he loves, and shares it with youth that can gain interest from it. Breakdancing acts as a foundation to further learning such as books and computers, this leads to improvement and long-term effects.
This is an incredible video because of the shocking footage of blatant disregard for worker safety. This can lead to an interesting discussion concerning how China has been able to have its economy grow. What other ways has China (or Chinese companies) been "cutting corners?" How does that give them a competitive edge on the global industrial market?
This guy is crazy! This just happened to be captured on video but who knows the other stunts that workers go through in the country. The demand and speed of the jobs to be completed don't always take in the safety of the workers. The regulations that are set in place aren't enforced strongly, if at all, which is why you can see this guy dangling from a building. Yet at the end of the day, the job has to be done, and surely this man will not be going home with a bonus check even though he risked his life to keep up with the demanding pace set for the demolition job.
