Johann Robbertze's insight:

Short, sweet and to the point--this video is a great way to show the historical geographies of major world religions.  What are the cultural barriers to the diffusion of one of these particular religions?  What geographic factors helped to facilitate the expansion of one of these world religions?

Short, sweet and to the point--this video is a great way to show the historical geographies of major world religions. Each of these religions have been "born" somewhere and have grown to different countries. Everyone has a religion well most of everyone and I believe it is very important to know the history of the religion that you are or fit into.

Blake Bass's curator insight, April 7, 2017 10:05 AM
This article is very excellent at explaining where religions are and why they are there,this article relates to human geography and what we are learning because it explains the most practiced religions and where they are.
Taylor Doonan's curator insight, May 3, 12:23 PM
The five major religions all growing throughout the world, rather quickly, with the exception of Judaism. Hinduism spread when it was established but quickly stopped spreading and does not span much of the world. Buddhism followed a similar path of Hinduism spreading but not going much beyond the continent of Asia, Buddhism is the largest religion in Asia and is also seen as a lifestyle and not just a religion.

Thanks to Tina Howe for curating and posting this up on social media channels. This is an interesting social media outlet that I hadn't heard of before.  Does anyone know much about it, other than what's here? Perhaps some additional research is needed, but it sounds great as a viable revenue stream. Hmm....

The Elements of Investing

The Elements of Investing | JR | Scoop.it
You can either work for money, or have your money work for you. Investing, in a financial sense, involves putting money into some type of activity with the intention of generating a profit on that money in return. Many investment opportunities exist to help us achieve that goal. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, even starting a small business can all be considered viable investment options. Investing however, is both an art and a science. Here are a few things to consider when deciding to invest. Know What You’re Investing In Before making any decision to invest, it’s important to know and understand in some detail what you’re investing in. Unlike saving, which is primarily focused on capital preservation, and ensuring that we have access to what we put in, investing involves pursuing opportunities with the potential to multiply our money. It also involves risks that can potentially cause us to lose money and, in some cases, everything we put in. Thus, having deep knowledge of these opportunities and the associated risks is critical. Ultimately, the more you know, the better an investor you’re likely to become. Seek Professional Guidance Even if we are knowledgeable about specific investment opportunities, it’s important to seek the advice of professionals working in the particular space in which we would like to invest. Their insight, experience and advice can help guide us along the right path and provide some necessary perspective on things we may or may not have considered. They can also provide some peace of mind as they are able to answer questions and address any concerns one might have. Bottom line: professional advice matters a lot when choosing to invest. Be Patient And Disciplined No one gets wealthy from investing overnight. Central to being a prudent investor is the ability to be both patient and disciplined. Being patient allows us to survive the inevitable peaks and valleys we will experience during the investment process, and being disciplined allows us to keep a steady eye on our investments in both good times and bad. When it comes to investing, how we manage ourselves is just as important - if not more - than what we invest in. Know When To Call It Quits The reality of life is that things don’t always go according to plans. It’s no different with investing. Knowing when to exit an investment can be just as crucial as knowing when to start, and can help save us both time and money. While the desire is often to at least recoup what we put in, sometimes in that process, we can end up doing ourselves more financial harm than good. Sometimes, the best thing we can do as investors is simply to call it quits. The Elements Combined By no means is this an exhaustive list of elements to consider, but it’s a good place to start the investing journey. Ultimately choosing to invest is one of the best decisions we can make to help us live well, beyond payday. COMING NEXT WEEK ...

The path of the solar eclipse is already altering real-world behavior

The path of the solar eclipse is already altering real-world behavior | JR | Scoop.it
The highly anticipated event is casting a long shadow online.

 

The upcoming solar eclipse is poised to become the “most photographed, most shared, most tweeted event in human history,” in the words of one astronomer. Millions of people will watch it, potentially overwhelming the cities and towns along the eclipse's path of totality.

According to Google, interest in the eclipse has exploded nationwide in the past few months, mirroring national media attention. The county-level search data above, provided by Google, paints a striking picture: Interest in the eclipse is concentrated in the path of totality that cuts through the middle of the country, receding sharply the farther you go from that path.
