Taylor Welch Current Event 1 GEOG 102 MWF 12:30 Current Event 1: Building a Mini-State with Avocados and Guns A small town in Tancítaro succeeded self-rule in a part of Mexico. The town is free of drug cartels unlike anywhere else in Mexico. It is also free of Mexican Police and Politicians who are known as the biggest problem to the people in Tancítaro. The town is safe to walk around day or night. Tancítaro was a global center for Avocado Production and exporting about $1 million worth every single day. They used the money they made from Avocado Production to pay for the militias that guarded their town. People thought there was something going on, like something didn’t feel right. Some people began trying to figure out what was up. The town was very
Hi Brandi. I must speak on the comment that you stated about the wear of clothing. I think that all of this starts and stems from the parents. Just take a moment and look at our society the grownups are doing it so what should we expect from our little ones. The teaching and training all starts when they are little. However some teachers are pretraying the same images. Why they are not forced to wear school uniforms. In my opinion it's not about the image it’s all about the money. Which when adding school uniforms as a requirement for school cause individuals and parents to spend more money.
Tairona or Tayrona means “males” or “sons of the Tiger”. The Tayrona indigenous are located in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, in Colombia. This is the highest coastal mountain range in the world. Their descendants go by the names of the Wiwa, the Arhuacos, the Kankuamo and the Kogi, they all live in the Sierra Nevada. When the Spanish got to Colombia land in the sixteenth century, they made this group of indigenous move to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, making that land their property. It has to be bad that people from another place come with authority and take you move from your own land but for the Tayronas this was their salvation. When they move to the mountain, they save their life from the system of rule that Spanish brought to the region and from an unseen killer, disease. It may seem unfair but was the best that could happen to them.
“…the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Save the Children released a report on their investigation into allegations of sexual abuse of West African refugee children in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. Their interviews with 1500 men, women, and children refugees revealed that girls between the ages of 13 and 18 were sexually exploited by male aid workers, many of whom were employed by national and international non-governmental agencies (NGOs) and the UN, and also by UN peacekeepers and community leaders.” (Hynes 2004:
Harry Trott was a professional cricketer for Australia, he played 24 Test matches between 1888 and 1898. Trott was a flexible batsman, spin bowler and fielder. As the captain, he was forceful, respected by both teammates and opponents. He was quick to spot vulnerabilities in his opponents. Trott made his Test debut in 1888 and toured England 4 times; on his final tour, he served as captain, as elected by his team. England won the series and kept The Ashes, but Trott's leadership was praised by Ranjitsinhji and Wisden. In the following series, Trott led his side to victory in Australia, regaining The Ashes in a win praised as helping the federation of the Australian colonies. A strange illness in 1898 suddenly ended Trott's career. After over
Most of the time, when you think of kids, you think of miniature people with no cares in the world. You think of innocent children who haven’t experienced the adversity of life. However, in Angola, that is almost never true.
The word timba also is part of a large family of ìmbî and ìngî words which then made their way into Spanish from African languages and was a word that had several different uses with no particular definition, that was before it became the newest Cuban music and dance craze and in the 1970-‘s and 1980’s is when Cuban music took another direction with Timba, it was mostly heard within the African-Cuban genre which was the Rumba. Timba was often refered to the collection of the drums in a folk ensemble and since 1990’s Timba has been referred to Cuba’s intense and bit more aggressive music and dance form.

The Tiv people realize the importance of hunting so they utilize dogs to make their hunting more efficient. However the people south of the Tiv eat the dogs and mistreat them (Bohannan & Bohannan. 1969). The Tiv take great care of their hunting dogs, the hunting dogs are all male dogs. The female dogs are left at the compound and aren't treat as well as the male dogs. The male dogs are fed and trained well, so they can hunt animals without struggling. Young men are usually are the people to train, care, and give expense necessary to train hunting dogs. The hunting dogs are forced to turn into vegetarian, they are taught to like yam porridge so they don't have to eat meat. A great sign of the perfect hunting dog is that he goes hunting alone

Living in constant fear with his family and siblings in South Africa since young, he has grown comfortable in his own setting and his house without education. Mathabane’s parents hide from the police if they do not have their pass book and is force to do labor work for months. Without food supply, he and siblings suffers without food and plays in the yard each day, occasionally finding food with their mother. “Each day we spent without food drove us closer and closer to starvation” (Mathabane, 37). He lives in the neighborhood with rascal boys that have a bad influence on him. “Since staying at home meant hunger and chores, I began attaching myself to gangs of five-, six- and seven-year-old neighborhood boys who daily roamed the filthy streets of Alexandra in search of food and adventure” (Mathabane, 53). His mother realizes that he needs schooling so that he does not choose the same lifestyle of his parent. “I want you to go to school, because I believe that an education is the key you need to open up a new world and a new life for yourself, a world and life different from that of either your father’s or mine” (Mathabane, 133). Excelling through education will give them knowledge and know more about the world.
Take a moment and picture a child half naked in the streets. His body has been harshly neglected. Little to no calf muscles exist. His ribs are plainly countable. One, two, three up his left side. You can do the same to his right. Malnutrition only vaguely begins to describe his condition. The worst of anorexia doesn’t even compare to this child’s inhumane state. As for shelter, he lives in a dilapidated hut. Food is a luxury, as the child may be fed only three or four times a week. He’s expected to die by the age of five due to severe malnutrition and disease. This is the grim portrait of an Ethiopian child in absolute poverty. His life doesn’t allow for the basic essentials of food, shelter, or clothing.
Poverty and violence. : It can be said that without even the world noticing, the large amount of common, criminal violence is right now ravaging the lives and dreams of billions of our poorest neighbors and our very own people, This is a kind of issue that is less talked about, there are many other problems that we cant even fathom, still persist, in the lives of the poor, violence has the power to eradicate everything, like the locust after their venture. There is zero fear that many people have that they will never be caught or be accountable before the law, which keeps the different violent aspirations going on. There could be many said of acute needs of the poor. Severe hunger and diseases can also destroy everything for a poor person, but at the verge of death, when you see a mob of people who are running to you, to kill you, you don’t feel the need for a doctor, or for some aid, food; all you would ever want at that moment would be hand to stop the oppressive force. The things that necessarily stops hunger, does not prevent diseases, nor the things that necessarily stops diseases prevent hunger – but the world still gets so busy trying to eradicate it all, without having in mind that endemic to being poor is a vulnerability to violence, or the present scenario that violence is catastrophically crushing the global poor. Its true that when we think of global poverty we readily think of hunger, disease, homelessness, illiteracy, dirty water, and a lack of education, but very few of us immediately think of the global poor’s chronic vulnerability to violence— the massive epidemic of sexual violence, forced labor, illegal detention, land theft , assault, police abuse, and oppression that lies hidden underneath the more visible deprivations of the poor, we do not tend to even think in this manner, not us, not even the experts in the fields, The UN Millennium Development Goals, in all its glory to eradicate global poverty did not even mention the need to address the problem of violence. It can be seen that our efforts to bring about economic development and to alleviate poverty among the poor without addressing the core roots of violence that rob and destroy them from time to time, can “seem like a mocking”
Youth are essential to the mobilization and development in Africa because of their large presence. As the common saying goes, “There is power in numbers”, and that saying does not come short in this case. These individuals aged 15-25, are the future. They will be assuming power, and driving the very economic state in their respective countries. But how will they be able to assume such a large responsibility, and implement positive change if they are not given the opportunity or the resources? It’s as if they are not integrated in society yet, not taken seriously. Anthropologist Ancinda Honwana terms this period “waithood”, which is defined as that prolonged stage between childhood and adulthood, a phenomenon resulting from failed neoliberal and global socioeconomic and political crises.
