Cartographically Inspired Fashion: for the APHuG fashionistas! | Southmoore AP Human Geography | Scoop.it

I found this on pinterest (where else?) and decided to share the cartographic love. 

 

1. Paint your nails white/cream

2. Soak nails in alcohol for five minutes

3. Press nails to map and hold

4. Paint with clear protectant immediately after it dries. 

 

This also works with newspaper, etc!!

Thoughts from my friend Seth...

 

Seth Dixon's insight:

This five-part video report from the New York Times is from 2011, but still has some pertinent information, even if the situation has changed in some of the particulars.  These videos brings important voices from a variety of perspectives on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; together they all  show how a complex cultural and political geography leads to many of the difficulties in creating a long-lasting peace.  The discipline of geography doesn't simple study the peace process--it is a part of it.  The creation of borders and the cartographic process play a critical role in solving territorial issues.  Geography can be both the problem and the solution.
