Italy reached a stable population much earlier than Nigeria. While the total population for Italy stayed small, Nigeria has approximately 7-9 times more population for each age group. Italy is further in the demographic transition and already had a declining growth rate keeping the population fairly small. In contrast, Nigeria is barely a developing country with a much higher growth rate thus creating a greater ending population. In terms of land and rural area, Nigeria has more land to expand and sustain this population size.
Looking into United Kingdom economy it can be analyzed Britain has a highly open economy which means large number of shares of output of goods and services are tied to trade with other countries around the world.
The Euro and its Impact on the U.S. Economy The euro is the official currency of the following 12 European nations: Belgium, Germany, Greece, Spain, France, Luxembourg, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, and Finland. Although it has been the official currency since January 1,1999 it became physical tender which can be used by all participating countries on January 1,2002. The introduction of the euro into the world was truly a historic event; it represented a unity never before seen in the history of Europe, a common currency. After years of negotiations and much skepticism from around the globe, the implementation of the euro is no longer an abstract ideal, but a change that nations, corporations, and investors must
Urbanization and Industrialization brought millions of people to growing cities, these growing cities were ill equipped to deal with growing population rate. While some might argue that Industrialization had primarily positive consequences for society because of a surplus of job opportunities, faster production, and more amenities, it was actually a negative thing for society. Industrialization’s negative effects were angersome working conditions, poor quality of life, and child labor.
The Netherlands have, like a lot of the rest of the World, a very interesting history, however; I still bet it will be very different than America’s. The first inhabitants, lived their 3,000 B.C. and were thought to be giants called the Huns, but were found to actually be just regular people, kind of like the American Indians. Another cool fact about The Netherlands, is that William Orange, led a revolution of Netherlanders who fought a lot like pirates, against many emperors who wanted control of the area. Also, in WWI the Netherlands were neutral yet in WWII they were occupied by NAZI
When most people think of the Netherlands what comes to mind are bland dresses with wooden shoes, fields of tulips, windmills of all shapes, and the bordering North Sea with hundreds of canals flowing in and out of the country. Contrary to what most people would believe, Dutch history is dynamic, dramatic, and in some stages even exciting. With no real solidified date of origin, it is common knowledge that the country thrived off seaports that bordered the western coasts. Formerly joined with what we now know as Belgium, the Netherlands was once a fruitful nation in seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, being home to many anglers, ship-builders, and sea traders. Although it was home to many of these people experiencing wealth, this also
Population development in the U.S. also illustrates how human factors shape settlements more so than physical factors. In 2000, more than 38% of the population lived on the East Coast. A reason why the American population lives along the Atlantic Ocean as it holds historical significance; the first european settlers docked in what are today key cities. More specifically the Boswash region (between Boston, Massachusetts and Washington D.C.), one of the most populated areas in U.S.A., holds monumental historical landmarks such as the scene of the Boston Massacre or Battles of Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts and the George Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. However, historical
Trade between nations of the world is extremely important in many aspects such as keeping a strong relationship between countries and to hold a good strong trust. It is through trade that
The way a culture view an “illness” plays a big impact of how the people will view certain health problems. Like in the book how people viewed birth shaped women’s experiences during their pregnancy. In the United States birth I viewed as a medical procedure where the women are viewed as sick and helpless. However, in Holland birth is entirely natural and in other countries it is stressful but normal part of life. Depending on what society you like in can impact location of birth, who attends, decision-making authority as the birth proceeds, and expectations of pain and pain management.
Human population in general in the whole world is an expanding issue. Overpopulation occurs if the number of people in the world exceeds the carrying capacity of the region. Education, modern contraception, economy, fertility rates, poverty, technology and environmental sustainability all are everyday issues that come in account to population. James K. Arinaitwe, young man from Uganda personally experienced the harsh life growing up living each and every day working hard labor only to feed himself and avoid getting shot and killed. According to the article written by James, America is eager to form an ally with East Africa. James’ opinion in the article is that America is funding too much money to the government and fighting the L.R.A. Africa has many other more important issues, like education for example. The country would not have so many issues with rebels and and
An emerging issue is that of urban sprawl. While some aspects of urban sprawl has been seen since ancient times, this phenomenon has started gaining the most momentum in the past century, aided by the advancement of technology, especially with the rise of mass produced automobiles, houses and highway systems. Many people unknowingly contribute to this environmental problem, as is the nature of it. Urban sprawl deals with the growth of the suburbs, the area between the urban and rural areas of a city. Most of America’s largest cities and states, in terms of population, are prime examples of urban sprawl. Opponents of urban sprawl usually cite the government as a major cause of sprawl. The government may be a major catalyst of
One of the most interesting things I found was that the Dutch do not care about the environment as much as I thought they did. While they do bike a lot, this is more for convenience in a crowded country than anything. They also recycle, but more for the cleanliness of their country than for the environment itself. I was also surprised to learn that a Jew in the Netherlands was less likely to survive the war than almost anywhere else in Europe. While I am familiar with the story of Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl from the Netherlands who was sent to Auschwitz, I was not aware that there were many other Dutch families just like hers who were probably captured by the Nazis. Several Dutch traditions/cultures also surprised me. For example, sharing a restaurant table or train compartment with strangers is not an uncommon thing in such a crowded country. For me, this is hard to imagine, as growing up in America, people will wait for a table of their own or take the next train if one is too crowded. Also, the Dutch are not big on privacy/solitude. This would be especially difficult for me, as I value my alone time, whether it be doing homework, going to the gym, or even eating sometimes. The laws are also vastly different from those in America. For example, in Holland, the police will not arrest you for rolling a joint in public, but will threaten to arrest you if you walk across the street when the light is red. If these rules were enforced in America, I would’ve been arrested several times by now. Personally, I think drugs are more of an issue than traffic violations, but that’s just me. The Dutch can have their way of doing things and I can have
The euro (€) is the official currency of the Eurozone, which consists of 17 EU member states using this currency. The euro is also the 2nd largest reserve currency as well as the 2nd most traded currency in the world after the United States dollar. As of November 2013, with more than €951 billion in circulation, the euro has the highest combined value of banknotes and coins in circulation in the world, having surpassed the U.S. dollar.
This group of learners are well educated, although the predominant ethnic group is Hispanic and several learners do not speak English as their first language, all are fluent in English. The main issues that needs to be addressed from an instructional perspective are the varying range technology skills, the levels comfort with using technology and the time investment needed to complete an e-portfolio.
