The “Lost Boys” were the boys who fled Sudan for safety. Before the civil war the people of Sudan had plenty of food and water but once the war started they lost all of that. The Muslim government ordered their army to kill all the men in the South. If you weren’t Muslim the troops would kill you. In order to escape the consequences of not being Muslim, twenty-seven thousand “Lost Boys” fled to Ethiopia. This was an internal migration. Once the Ethiopia government collapsed in 1991, the “Lost Boys” had to flee back through Sudan to Kakuma, Kenya. By the summer of 1992, the international aid organization learned about the boys and they set up relief operations at the border of Sudan. By the time the boys reached the border of Kenya their numbers were reduced to twelve thousand and their five year exodus was finally over. Once the “Lost Boys” reached the refugee camp they weren’t expected to stay there. They needed to have a home. The United States decided to lend a hand and they agreed to take some of the “Lost Boys” as refugees. This was going to be an international migration and a forced migration. Once they arrived to the United States the “Lost Boys” were safe from any harm and they weren’t expected to go back to Sudan because they would be executed there. The civil war forced these Sudanese boys to flee the country. In the United States they were given another chance. They were given an opportunity to get a better education and life. In addition, they could find jobs and they wouldn’t need to worry as much about food and water. The push and pull factors brought them to the United States and it gave…
4. Why haven’t we been told about them? Consumers are kept in the dark and are part of an uncontrolled, unregulated mass human experiment the results of which are unknown. Yet, the risks are enormous, it will take years to learn them, and when we finally know it'll be too late to reverse the damage if it's proved conclusively that genetically engineered foods harm human health as growing numbers of independent experts believe.

Haiti, Port au Prince. The total death toll 200,000+ and ~1,000,000 were left homeless, in total 3,500,000 people were affected. Haiti is a small island located East of Mexico and South East of Cuba, it is a very poor country and is only 145th in the Human Development Index, the reason the earthquake caused such devastation is that most people live on ~$2 a day and live in poorly constructed wooden housing which is easily susceptible to damage from an earthquake. Within the first year Oxfam moved in…

Vitamin K is essential in humans and most animals. It is needed by the liver to synthesis thrombin. This is an enzyme needed for blood clotting. Humans can't synthesis Vitamin K themselves so they have to obtain it from other sources. There are two forms of Vitamin K, Vitamin K1 and Vitamin K2. Vitamin K1 can be obtained from dark green vegetables…
1. What is geography?
The study of the physical features of the earth and its atmosphere, and of human activity as it affects and is affected by these, including the distribution of populations and resources, land use, and industries.
2. Five themes of geography
Absolute- As in coordinates of a map using longitude and latitude
Relative- General location, ex: next door, a short drive, next to the post office
Place: An area that is defined by everything in it. All places have features that…
Literacy Rate IN U.S. vs Africa
People who can’t read and write can make for a big problem. Without reading and writing people will not be able to get a good job. This is a big problem that should be solved. “Literacy is defined as the ability to use written language actively and passively; one definition of literacy is the ability to "read, write, spell, listen, and speak".” If the Literacy rate in the U.S. is can be one of…
California would likely need to set aside an area equivalent to more than 70 Manhattans. Apart from the impact on the environment itself, few if any people could live on the land because of the noise (and the infrasound, which is inaudible to most humans but potentially harmful) produced by the turbines.
Industrial solar and wind projects also require long swaths of land for power lines. Last year, despite opposition from environmental groups, San Diego Gas & Electric started construction on…
Geo-engineering the deliberate large-scale manipulation of an environmental process that affects the earth's climate, in an attempt to counteract the global warming
Geo-engineering is the intentional, technology of the Earth’s systems, often discussed as a controlling climate change. Different methods reflecting sunlight to space greenhouse gas removal and and weather modification.
Geo-engineering can refer to a wide range of techniques,…
emigrating, or, in more extreme circumstances, resorting to reduced, health care tolerating vicious social diseases or impoverished living conditions, warfare, or even infanticide. Malthus was fascinated not with the inevitability of human demise, but with why humans do not die off in the face of such overwhelming odds. As an economist, he studied responses to incentives.
The demographic transition model seeks to explain the transformation of countries from having high birth and death rates…
Pros of using technology in math
Technology can be defined as any tool that can be used to help promote human learning, including – but not limited to – calculators, tablets (such as an iPad), Smart Boards, video cameras, digital cameras, MP3 players, Portable Digital Assistants (PDAs), and, of course, the computer. These are all innovations that have helped countless people during regular daily activities
When technology is integrated into school lessons, learners are more likely to be interested…
friction of distance influenced these interactions (ex. How early you left home, where you went to lunch between classes)
Your geography focuses on “you” and “yours”
We are all egocentric, and as groups we are all ethnocentric, nationalistic and human-centred
As your geography focuses on you and your experiences (direct and indirect), your perception of the environment is strongly influenced by cognitive filters related to you (your attitudes, values, preferences, needs and desires and the reason…
