And in population! Look at differing family sizes, life expectancies, etc. and it paints a demographic picture of life in certain countries.

Globalization discussions about raising disparity within countries often overshadow the growing inequalities between countries. What qualifies as middle class in the United States can be the equivalent of an upper-class lifestyle for many nations around the world. The same can be said in comparing what the poor in America have access to in comparison to many developing countries.

A great resource to compare the liveability of countries using a range of criteria.

I'm not saying that I thrilled about all of the ramifications of this new trend, but students need to realize that online posts can be read by more than just their friends and understand the implications of that fact. 

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, November 11, 2013 12:40 PM

A social online reputation is  important to all of us including students. This is a look at how that can reputation can effect college entry at the moment.

After reading this article it goes to show that my father is right once again. He always told me what i put on the internet is there forever, but not only that it could inhibit me from getting a job that i wanted. Just like the article my father told me that alot of jobs look at your social media sights and pages to see what kind of person you portray yourself to be. Alot of jobs will not hire you due to your social media pages! who would have though

Out of Africa – Did the Colonial Powers ever Really Leave?

Out of Africa – Did the Colonial Powers ever Really Leave? | World Geography - MASIS | Scoop.it
Africa may have achieved independence, but the old colonial ties are still important as France’s decision to send troops to Mali to fight Islamist extremists shows.

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, March 25, 9:59 AM

Colonial ties are still very prevalent due to Europe's dependence upon the resources of Africa. European countries like England and France invest billions in Africa, not to help those African nations, but to build infrastructure for resource extraction or to keep governments stable. Though the true exploitation of Africa has ended, the current situation certainly has the ring of exploitation as the people of Europe enjoy the diamonds and chocolate harvested by the multitudes of impoverished people of Africa.

Jess Deady's curator insight, May 4, 1:04 PM

Colony powers are still located within Africa. Just because Africa is technically independent doesn't mean that British Colonial power isn't still in place.
