11 Facts About Food Deserts | Current Events | Scoop.it

"Food insecurity has a high correlation with increased diabetes rates. In Chicago, the death rate from diabetes in a food desert is twice that of areas with access to grocery stores."


Via Rebecca Cofield
Hailey Austin's insight:
This is connected to my class because its dealing with agriculture and how they have limited crops. So most of there food is manufactured and unhealthy. I think that food deserts should either be shut down or given better food options.In Chicago, the death rate from diabetes in a food desert is twice that of an area with access to a grocery store.

Food Deserts are ares where there is limited access to healthy food choices because, grocery stores are too far away or nonexistent.This article relates to Human Geography by, it is related to the lack of food production and distribution in those areas. My opinion on food deserts is, there needs to be more focus on theses areas. The lack of nutritious food options is, unhealthy and causing obesity. 
Harley Bass's curator insight, January 10, 2017 3:11 PM

This article is connected to human geography by agriculture. We talk and learn about agriculture every day in the class room. I feel like this article is a eye opener to the naive mind of people who do not live in or around food desert areas.

Mitchell Tasso's curator insight, January 11, 2017 8:57 PM

Ethnicity and Religion: A Case Study

Ethnicity and Religion: A Case Study | Current Events | Scoop.it
In a nation of 230 million people, 700 languages and some 300 ethnicities, ethnic Chinese are one of Indonesia’s historic minorities.

 

Religion and ethnicity are often connected, but not always.  This case study of such a group, the Chinese Muslims of Indonesia, provide an interesting glimpse into the economic, historic and political patterns of these cultural groups that are parts of communal identities.  

Hailey Austin's insight:
This article relates to my class because its talking about all different types of ethnicity. It talks about how much of a ethnicity is in a certain  location like how much chinese musilms make up a place. This article is interesting because it shows you how many diferent ethnicity are around you. The different cultuer is very cool.

This tells us about the amount of ethnicity's there are along with some things about religion. This says that ethnicity and religion are not always connected. This gives us insight about where people are connected too. Such as Chinese Muslims of Indonesia, provide us with historic things. This relates to my class by telling us about ethnicity's and where they could originate from and who is the common ancestor. 
Samuel bennett's curator insight, April 23, 2017 8:42 PM
In this article it talks about the diffrent religions and ethnicity's in middle asia and the diffrent ethnicity's living there. In our class we talk about ethnicity and the diffrent types in the world. We talk about the the diffrences in the world and race. Now we can know about the diffrences in the religion and race.
Gracie Delaney's curator insight, April 25, 2017 11:07 AM
This relates to our previous chapter because it is talking about a different ethnicity coming into a place where a certain ethnicity already lives. This article shows how the amount of Chinese Muslims there were there. I liked that because it showed that ethnicity blending is not always a bad thing and that we should be more excepting. When we are more understanding the world runs much smoother.

Rust Belt Rebirth Through Gentrification?

It’s become difficult to afford urban living in places like San Francisco, New York or even Portland, but there is an alternative. In Rust Belt cities like Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Cincinnati, you can buy or rent for about 1/10th the price.

Hailey Austin's insight:
 This is related to what I'm learning in class because its talking about urbanization. It talks about how a man visits a very run down place and invest in fixing it up a bit. He rebuilt a house/building. It made the city look better. My opinion on the article is that its a very good deed. Bringing a city back to life is a wonderful thing.

Austin Thompson's curator insight, May 10, 2017 8:21 PM
The video relates to Urban Patterns by showing gentrification and a man explains his processes of it. I believe there should be more people like this guy in the video because it really upgrades the value of these poorer urban areas. This guy was able to renovate a two-family house for really cheap and make so much better.
Harley Bass's curator insight, May 11, 2017 2:35 PM
This connects to are lesson on chapter thirteen through gentrification. My opinion on this video is that gentrification in this neighborhood is good because it is bringing life back to its local community. Gentrification can be a bad thing in some neighborhoods though because it can force poor families out of their home.
kyleigh hall's curator insight, May 12, 2017 11:21 PM
This article is about a person who bought a house in the suburb areas of New York. He put certain things in his house that is all historically or better for the world. This relates to what we are learning in world cultural geography because we are learning about the suburbs area and inner city areas of places. In my opinion it related to what we learned about a lot also I liked what he did with the stuff he used.

The languages the world is trying to learn, according to Duolingo

The languages the world is trying to learn, according to Duolingo | Current Events | Scoop.it

If you own a smartphone and are trying to learn a language, you probably have Duolingo. English is far and away the most dominant, with a caveat: For some learners, English is the only language Duolingo offers with translation into their native tongue. That doesn’t change the fact of universal interest in English, though, which Duolingo notes is studied by 53% of its users. Things get more interesting when you look at the second-most popular language by country. There French takes the lead, followed by Spanish, German, and Portuguese.

This reflects on what we learn in class because the article is talking about how they all try to learn one language. This is basically talking about how they all learn one language in common so they will be able to communicate if they meet up. This is a really great idea because if we couldn't talk to other countries then how would we get things or resolve things. Also if you come and visit and we have a language in common then i would be able to help you and communicate with you.

This article "The Languages The World Is Trying To Learn, According To Duolingo" relates to language in Human Geography because it is an app that describes how languages are being spread but also how countries are picking a certain language to be able to communicate with, which is English.  Countries are picking English because they are needing a language to be able to communicate with other countries.
Hailey Austin's curator insight, April 6, 2017 3:09 PM
This relates to my class because its talking about religion. It states that in many different parts in the world it is very dominate  to learn English. But whats more interesting is that French is right after us. It talks about why English is so popular. Which is because its a language you can use when you visit places and you will be able to communicate. I think this article is interesting  because it is talking about how we are the most popular language but its one of the most complicated one to learn. I also would understand why English is most learned because a lot of people want to visit Florida or even move their.

Comparing the five major world religions

"It's perfectly human to grapple with questions, like 'Where do we come from?' and 'How do I live a life of meaning?' These existential questions are central to the five major world religions -- and that's not all that connects these faiths. John Bellaimey explains the intertwined histories and cultures of Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam."

Hailey Austin's insight:
This article relates to are class because it is talking about different religions. It states that we all have different beliefs, but we believe in a higher power. This article was interesting because it shows you how different your beliefs are to other religions. They all have a story they believe is true.

This topic relates to human geography because it talks about the 5 major world religions. Hinduism,Islam,Judaism, and lastly Christianity. It gives us information on how the religions came to be. My opinion on this article/video is that it gives us good information when wanting to know more about the 5 major religions.
mary jane james's curator insight, April 7, 2017 2:55 PM
This video relates to my subject on religion by showing the five main religions and how they're changing the world and prospective of how people see themselves on earth.
 My opinion on the video is that is good to see that all of the religions are somewhat related by where and how they were created, and also what is shown in them.
