The Most Complex International Borders in the World

"In this video I look at some of the most complex international border. Of course, there are more complex borders in the world, but this video looks at some of my favourites."

This video shows some great examples of how the political organization of space and administration of borders can get complicated.  Here are the examples (and time in the video when they are covered in the video):

There are so many reasons our immigrant students come to the United States.  Some stories are so complex and painful it can be extremely difficult for Americans to understand.

ty"The video clip shows the cliff where the fall initiated, near the ledge close to the skyline.  Then, below the ledge, you can see the talus cone, which are rocky bits along the slope. The really large boulders that fell down and ruined the house have carved out soil ruts as the boulders rolled downhill." http://geographyeducation.org/2014/01/30/gravity/

Una decina di giorni fa, il 21 gennaio 2014, è franato un torrione di roccia posto sopra un'abitazione a Termeno (Tramin), in Alto Adige.

 

Devastati campi, attrezzature, vigneti - a Tramin si produce i famoso Traminer - e tanta paura per la famiglia del sig. Herbert Trebo che ha visto uno dei massi fermarsi a pochi metri dalla casa. 

 

Qui trovate un filmato che riprende dall'alto la zona, evidenziando la zona del distacco e gli effetti devastanti dei massi rotolati e del terreno franato.

There are some things that just cannot be avoided like this rock that gouged its way down a hill, destroying part of a home and the landscape. Will we ever be in time to predict their coming and avoid such disasters from happening?
