Oklahoma driver license may be another obstacle when boarding flights

Oklahoma driver license may be another obstacle when boarding flights | Southmoore AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
A big change in federal law could mean your Oklahoma driver's license will no longer get you on board your flight. Oklahoma says it doesn't plan to comply with the federal "REAL ID" law that adds security features to Oklahoma driver's licenses.
Mr. David Burton's insight:

In addition to the Human Geography issues embedded into this discussion, the video with this story features an interview with Southmoore's own Ladonna Tarr. Congratulations to Mrs. Tarr for be available and willing to do the interview.

Why The U.S. Chills Its Eggs And Most Of The World Doesn't

Why The U.S. Chills Its Eggs And Most Of The World Doesn't | Southmoore AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
In many countries, eggs aren't refrigerated and they're still considered safe to eat. But in the U.S., we have to chill them, because we've washed away the cuticle that protects them from bacteria.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 12, 12:29 PM

For many Americans that are traveling abroad for the first time, realizing that eggs aren't in the refrigerator is a bit of a culture shock (not to mention the moment they find milk in a box that also isn't being refrigerated).  Agricultural practices dictate storage requirements and some things we might have imagined were universal are actually place-specific or peculiar to our cultural setting.  What we are taught to think of as gross, appropriate, attractive or even sanitary is often steeped in a cultural context.  So is it strange the we refrigerate our eggs in the United States, or that they don't in other places?
