Launch of the 'Social Europe' Working Group: A holistic approach to Europe's social problems > Friends of Europe | Australia & Oceania and Europe and Africa | Scoop.it
Vivian Le's insight:

~Europe~

PERSIA: Social

Many European countries are very forth-wright in their own style, culture, and tradition. Most countries also favor in taking their ancient histories in notion, which causes a rift in future generations for good or bad. For example France and England are legendary rivals, still hating each other to this day. What this 'Friends of Europe' organization tend to suggest a different approach and want more countries to be more sociable and friendly.

I found this interesting, as it was raining alot this weekend, but now in Europe, it seems the rainstorms are too powerful and chances of a flood are warning the western European countries to be on the alert.

 

List all of the geography traits Western Europe has and compare it to California's. Is their chances of having a flood much like ours?

Comment: Losing our religion

Comment: Losing our religion | Australia & Oceania and Europe and Africa | Scoop.it
With the swearing in of arguably Australia's most religious modern Prime Minister - how many contenders for the top job can say they considered becoming priests? - the role and relevance of religion gives me pause for thought.
Vivian Le's insight:

PERSIA: Religion

Giving a good thought after reading this article, I learned that from over the years, Australia slowly started changing their faith in religions. 

 Do you think that if the majority of the country become 'non-religious' would affect the country to higher standards such the government?

allAfrica.com: Africa: Women Remain Unequal in Work, Politics, Education

allAfrica.com: Africa: Women Remain Unequal in Work, Politics, Education | Australia & Oceania and Europe and Africa | Scoop.it

"I think it's very important for us to realize that a lot of these issues are not only affecting the stereotypical woman we have in our head, who is the poor woman in the rural areas," she said. "This affects every single woman, be it a woman sitting with her masters' degree at a university to a woman who has no education and lives in the rural areas."

Vivian Le's insight:

~Africa~

PERSIA: Political

 Women seem to be "still be facing discrimination" not at only the places they work, but also in "the courts and in their communities," Even though the papers declare better suffrage for women, things such as jobs, education, and rights are not totally on the scale for women than it is to men.

EQ: Predict what year it will be when women in Africa may be able to have the amount of rights and respect as women do in America. Justify your reason.

Nigeria: Africa’s biggest economy? | The Herald | Australia & Oceania and Europe and Africa | Scoop.it

"Nigeria: Africa’s biggest economy? When there is hardly any city or state that can supply ‘24-/7’ water to its citizens, and public servants are owed outstanding wages, and pensioners have seen the real value of their pension gone, Nigeria is on a make-believe trajectory."

Vivian Le's insight:

~Africa~

PERSIA: Economy

Word has it that the country of Nigeria is Africa's biggest economy. Why it is so intriuging is the fact that three-fourths of what Nigeria needs to survive are imported goods.

Relations between Switzerland and the rest of Europe have been plunged into confusion after the Swiss appeared to have voted in favour of a ceiling on foreign migrants – including citizens of the EU.

PERSIA:Political

I have discovered in this article a disdainful truth. Switzerland has held a vote to stop the international trade and free migratin, an opposition to the EU's regulations and ideals.

 

Why do you think Switzerland would want to stop the operation of free migration and trading goods? Do you agree with Swiss' proposition?
