Seth Dixon's curator insight, October 19, 2013 3:02 PM

With Halloween right around the corner, the Salem Witch trials loom large in the collective American psyche.  While many emphasize the supernatural and the scandalous, this Maps 101 podcast (based on the article written by Julie Dixon and yours truly) gives the geographic and historic context to understand the tragedy of the 1692 witch trials.

Justin McCullough's curator insight, October 21, 2013 1:37 PM

The outbreak of the Salem Witch Trials really are really something that produces many questions. Perhaps the most obvious question is why did these trials happen all of a sudden? A community largely based off of agriculture produces an atmosphere of superstition. This can be seen in the events that led up to the Salem witch trials. With the land barely producing enough to sustain the town, people look for a scapegoat to blame. Neighbors turned on neighbors in order to obtain more land claiming that each other were witches. It is interesting to see that in a time of crisis one can a helping hand is not always the popular choice; as seen in the Salem Witch Trials the opposite extreme is taken place.

What Everybody From The North Needs To Understand About The Traffic Disaster In Atlanta

What Everybody From The North Needs To Understand About The Traffic Disaster In Atlanta | الحياة  في المجتمعات  الساخنة | Scoop.it

"Republicans want to blame government (a Democrat thing) or Atlanta (definitely a Democrat thing). Democrats want to blame the region’s dependence on cars (a Republican thing), the state government (Republicans), and many of the transplants from more liberal, urban places feel the same way you might about white, rural, southern drivers. All of this is true to some extent but none of it is helpful."

Joseph Thacker 's curator insight, January 29, 10:54 PM

It is difficult for someone from New England to understand how a city like Atlanta can be shut down from such a small amount of snow. However, when snow hits an area where people have little to no experience driving in snowy or icy conditions you can not expect all to go well, especially when there is no salt and sand on the roads. I think some people who have experience driving in the snow would have a difficult time driving on roads that are not properly treated and are covered in ice. 

Phil LAUGRAND's comment, January 30, 2:24 AM
where is solidarity between drivers..? why human beings in wealthy countries have forgotten to help each other... and perhaps stop to be so selfish... and use their cars together and not one car for one person ? do they know about co-sharing driving ? Do they happen to look around them and consider they are not the center of the world ?
Jess Deady's curator insight, April 16, 1:58 PM

Natural disasters involve two things. The natural forces that are causing it to happen and the people involved that it is happening to. This is out of control because Atlanta wasn't prepared for it. They don't know how to drive on anything besides the highway and therefore, they were stuck there for hours. This traffic jam is a complete and udder mess and shouldn't of happened to begin with if Georgia knew how to depend on other transportation methods.

"The Digital Scholarship Lab at the University of Richmond has created an enhanced version of the Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States, which was published in 1932. The atlas, which took dozens of researchers to assemble, used maps to illustrate a variety of political, demographic and economic concepts."

Pipeline On Wheels: Trains Are Winning Big Off U.S. Oil

The railroad industry is eager to be the go-to oil shipper, but some worry it's moving too fast.

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, December 8, 2013 3:46 AM

The idea of using trains instead of oil pipelines in the North Dakota regions is smart, over the idea of the time and energy it takes to transport oil through pipes. Big industry always causes parts of the enviornment to suffer but the lesser of the evils must be chosen. In the area of shipping oil on trains it is the sandy prarie like areas that can suffer physically. With oil business fracking has also been a big issue were rocks deep beneath the ground are broken up to release oil up to the surface. Yes this brings companies lots of money, but causes harm to homes, leaking oil, causing explosions and even earthquakes. This can be tricky especially when these kinds of companies are supported by the federal government

Connie Anderson's curator insight, December 8, 2013 3:01 PM

"Forward on climate?" This news is backwards and at least 40,000 people who attended "Forward on Climate" rallies throughout our nation in February 2013 will continue to question, protest peacefully, and convince others that we MUST reduce our dependence on oil no matter how it is transported!

What happens when a country moves it's capital city?  Why would a country choose to move it's capital?  This list (with some short historic and geographic context) helps answer those questions. 

The Rice Process's curator insight, November 24, 2013 9:52 PM

Great resource!

Victoria McNamara's curator insight, December 11, 2013 11:39 PM

Over the years countries have moved their major capitols from one area of their country to another. They move their capitol cities to try to please the people and reform. By moving the capitol cities it causes more growth and development which can lead to the area being more populated.

Cultural Critique of the #SochiProblems Meme

Cultural Critique of the #SochiProblems Meme | الحياة  في المجتمعات  الساخنة | Scoop.it

" #SochiProblems is more of an embarrassment for America than it Is for Russia....So this is my plea: @SochiProblems, whining journalists and social media fiends, have just a bit more respect for Russians when ridiculing what is to you the Olympics and what is to them everyday life. Their government might have just spent $51 billion on possibly the most corrupt Olympic games ever, but most of them are just along for the ride."

Joseph Thacker 's curator insight, February 15, 12:38 AM

Twitter pages such as this is an embarrassment for Americans. Posting complaints about via twitter on a page called "Sochi Problems" does not make you look professional. These journalists only have to deal with these issues such as undrinkable tap water for several weeks. The citizens of Sochi on the other hand, are going to deal with these problems for years potentially. 

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, February 18, 2:00 PM

Sochi Problems is right this water should not be allowed in order for the human consumption. The civilians are more concerned with the money that is going to fund the olympics instead of the humanitiary needs like this example of "water" that looks more like apple juice in Sochi. One of the quotes from this article is "Their goverment might have just spent $51 billion on possibly the most corrupt Olympic games ever, but most of them are just along for the ride." This quotation demonstrates that the goverment has no intention on cancleing the games and will give almost everything it has for the most controversial location of games to fool the world that Russia isn't what it used to be.

How Vietnam became a coffee giant

How Vietnam became a coffee giant | الحياة  في المجتمعات  الساخنة | Scoop.it

"Think of coffee and you will probably think of Brazil, Colombia, or maybe Ethiopia. But the world's second largest exporter today is Vietnam. How did its market share jump from 0.1% to 20% in just 30 years, and how has this rapid change affected the country?"

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, April 24, 2:09 PM

This article pointed out that while Vietnam does not drink much coffee it has become a large exporter of the bean.  The article also talked about the ramifications of coffee farming on the economy as well as he geography of this country.  I also found it interesting that a country that no one ever trained to grow coffee has reached the heights it has with just farmers figuring out what needed to be done.

Jess Deady's curator insight, May 1, 11:05 AM

Coffee is in high demand. When any product is in high demand, countries want to rapidly be able to produce it before other countries. Vietnam has made its way to the top of the list of coffee producing/marketing countries. This has greatly affected the country in political/economic and financial ways.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, May 5, 3:13 PM

This is a tough predicament, coffee growing is providing a stable income for many Vietnamese but land clearing is ruining the environment. Land mines are still in the soil in many places and could cause severe injury or loss of life. How long before the country cannot produce enough coffee and farmers start to suffer again?
