Introduction to Geography
Research paper week 7
I learned more than I anticipated while studying the Introduction to Geography. There are Four Geographic Traditions; Earth Science Tradition, Culture-Environment Tradition, Location Tradition and Area Analysis Tradition. The Earth Science Tradition covers physical geography such as landforms, natural resources, weather and climate. I found the text on natural resources to be very helpful, informative and important for our current economy. The Culture-Environment

The Importance of Vegetation
Sand dunes are a valid indication of the quality of the soil and the surrounding ocean. When vegetation is established in sand dunes, it stabilises it- i.e. gives the dunes structure. This structure helps prevent erosion by using the plant life to trap the sand. Without these plants (and ultimately the sand dunes) sand will be subject to many
Difference Between Humanistic Geography and Positivistic Approach
There are definite differences between positivism and humanistic methods that geographers use. Positivism, which has it’s roots in quantitative theories, excludes the human element and includes such fundamentals as cumulative data. Humanistic geography has it’s roots in qualitative procedures and focuses on the combination of research with the people.
Positivism is a rigorous and formal way to collect and analyze data that was developed

The beginning of Brazils economy started when Portugal colonized the country that is known today as Brazil. The Portuguese were in search of vast riches and they got their first taste of earnings around the 1540’s. With the popularity of sugar cane growing in Europe, the Portuguese quickly started an agricultural enterprise in their colony. The Portuguese took advantage of the Dutch through their commercial skills and financing; in order to quickly get a foothold and build a small sugar monopoly

About the Book
Benjamin, Alepho, and Benson were raised among the Dinka tribe of Sudan. Theirs was an insulated, close-knit world of grass-roofed cottages, cattle herders, and tribal councils. The lions and pythons that prowled beyond the village fences were the greatest threat they knew.
All that changed the night the government-armed Murahiliin began attacking their villages. Amid the chaos, screams, conflagration, and gunfire, five-year-old Benson and seven-year-old Benjamin fled into the

Divergent and convergent plate margins are both studied in plate tectonics; which is the study of the plates that makeup the lithosphere, their movements and how these movements has influenced changes in the surface’s topography (Strahler, 2011, 389). The driving force that causes these plate movements is the gradual
Physical Context of African History:
Geography and Environment
1. Although some may think of Africa as being of a single climate and terrain description, in reality a wide variety of land types can be found throughout Africa. How does this wide variety of climates and physical terrains affect human life and settlement patterns on the African continent? Different terrains and climates allowed for different lifestyles for Africans in different regions. Those close to the sea were

Part 1- Comparative studies
Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies, by Jared Diamond, attempts to explain why history progressed differently for people from various geographical regions. Diamond introduces his book by pointing out that history followed different courses for different people because of differences among peoples’ environments, not because of biological differences among people themselves. Through his convincing explanation for how civilizations were created and evolved throughout the course of history

The Egyptians, however, built with granite and limestone bricks found in quarries surrounding Egypt.
It seems that both ancient Egypt and ancient Mesopotamia were indeed comparable in regards to their economies, religions, governments, and geographies, although their cultures were diverse in each of these aspects. Both civilizations were oriented in a river valley, which provided food and water. However, the Nile was predictable and stable, whereas the Euphrates and the Tigris were unpredictable

Roman Empire and Mongolian Empire
The key to the Mongolian success lied in their excellent horsemanship, their use of the composite bow, their unimaginable discipline and communication on the battlefield and also their ability to adapt to enemy tactics.
The Mongolian invasion of China often makes it sound as though these nomadic people did not have much of a battle plan, however it is the exact opposite according to (Conant, 1994)

Only 6% of the sales were created from the rest of the world. The driving factors of high concentration in geography are low tax and tariff, attractive subsidies or support programs.

VALIDITY AND RELIABILITY
For the statistical consultant working with social science researchers the estimation of reliability and validity is a task frequently encountered. Measurement issues differ in the social sciences in that they are related to the quantification of abstract, intangible and unobservable constructs. In many instances, then, the meaning of quantities is only inferred.
Let us begin by a general description of the paradigm that we are dealing with. Most concepts in the behavioral
The evolution of new technology has impacted drastically on the design and layout of bulk terminals. This has led to the massive turnaround of port operations.

Revolution in new computerized systems on vessels has led for the expansion

WALKING IN THE CITY
N TH I S R E M A R K A B LE E S S AY, carefully poised between poetry and semiotics, Michel de Certeau analyses an aspect of daily urban life. He presents a theory of the city, or rather an ideal for the city, against the theories and ideals of urban planners and managers, and to do so he does not look down at the city as if from a high-rise building – he walks in it. Walking in the city turns out to have its own logic – or, as de Certeau puts it, its own “rhetoric.” The walker

Who is Happier?
I like spending time alone in my room just watching a good show or having one friend join me; I have never enjoyed going out and doing gregarious activity. I have so many friends that accuse me of being depressed and no fun because my answer is eternally a no when they ask me to join them at a party. I knew I was not depressed and I was not trying to be rude, but I am so much happier when I am able to relax and be comfortable. I want to educate people
Imagine you are dreaming being a teacher, you must accept that there are no doubt that knowledge is the first quality of a good teacher.

The Behavioral Learning Theory believes that behavior is learned from either the environment, the people in the individual's life, the media, or society as a whole. This theory contradicts the Biological theory, which states that criminals are "born to be bad" and that criminal behavior is inherited.

1. What benefits have CEMEX and the other global competitors in cement derived from globalization?
Globalization has given many benefits to CEMEX and its competitors. First of all, it reduced the tariffs of product exportation by acquiring local plants and facilities instead. By doing so, these cement companies could control the localized quarries, which give them the proximity to the raw material needed for cement production. No need to ship the goods across the border, therefore no tariffs on

This strategy can be summarized in five parts:
· develop an infrastructure before putting in restaurants
· develop a local management team
· focus development on major cities and adjacent geographies with established shopping mall location, prevalent in Brazil's largest cities, instead of the whole country
· establish a local office
· support continuous development and the use of local suppliers that meet Burger King's global specifications
