Monsoons are one uncontrollable geographic factor that plays a huge role on the outcome of the world’s living conditions and adaptations. A monsoon is a seasonal prevailing wind that blows for a whole
Humans developed in Africa. “…, indicates that the earliest stages of human evolution were also played out in Africa.” (Page 36)
During the age of cross-cultural interactions, regions went through similar changes and continuities. These regions allowed consistent causes and effects to emerge and change their societies. These changes and continuities are evident in the regional societies located within Sub-Saharan Africa and the Americas. In Sub-Saharan Africa and the Americas from 600 to 1450 CE, opportunities for women changed, however religion and labor continued to influence society.
Going into my sophomore year of high school I was fortunate enough to get accepted by the Schuler Scholar Program. In the program each scholar is a assigned a reading coach. During the first session my reading coach, Wyatt, told me to write down a couple questions that I had about anything. When I heard "anything" the first thing that came to my mind was Africa. For a while I've been wondering about the topic. Since my step father’s mother is from Africa, it is a topic that comes up a lot at the dinner table. Sometimes we visit his mother’s side of the family, and they make African food and play music and it is always a good time. Being African American and white, I have always wanted to learn more about the culture and roots of my African American side. I saw this as a perfect opportunity to do just that. So in my journal I wrote "Why isn't Africa the most powerful continent"
Many African Americans were raised with a one-sided racial image of slavery, there were black slaves and white slave masters/owners. In school we were not presented with rationales for why Africans were chosen over other races for manual labor and harsh conditions. Also, the process of Enslavement. Africa in World History and Negros are Masters gave me a new perspective to think about. The idea never dawned on me that there was logic to the selection process.
Africa gets its climate from the way the low and high pressure zones bring in rain from the atlantic and how when the low and high pressure areas switch rain isn’t brought in. creating the dry season in africa. In India their wet and dry seasons are caused by the monsoons that switch the high and low pressure zones that either force air that carries rain into india or an movement of high pressure air out of india during the dry season.
The kingdoms of West Africa and the kingdoms of East Africa have both similarities and differences. A difference is that West Africa traded with just the nomads who passed through the empire, while the East traded with India and other empires through the sea and silk roads. The way they traded has another difference on what they should know. The East had to know about the monsoons to know when it was safe to trade or cross the sea. Just like India did when they wanted to trade or grow crops. The West however didn’t need to have knowledge of monsoons, they didn’t really have to have knowledge of anything other than a bit of geography to trade. The East side was more animistic and traditional, while the West was muslim and incorporated new religion.
In sub Saharan Africa, the region's wild rivers, windswept savannas and sunny skies represent a vast challenge and an enormous opportunity for a region starved for power.
Human evolution according to research started over 6 million years ago. The outcome of the evolution process is the current human beings. Scientific studies have revealed over the years a remarkable affinity between the chimpanzees/Apes and human beings. Even though this reality is not a definitive prove that human beings evolved from apes, it does show that the human beings are in one way or another related to other primates. Scientists suppose that the humans and the primates shared a common ancestor. The subject of what makes humans what they are and their origin has been the exclusive purpose leading to many scientific studies globally (Coolidge & Wynn, 2011). Studies believe that Africa was the origin of evolution millions of years ago. Fossil remains have been discovered in different parts of Africa as well as other regions of the world. Different hominins have been discovered around the world in the last 1 million years. Thus, the different discoveries have led to comparisons between the various species of hominins to clarify on their similarities as well as differences. This essay seeks to explain whether they were distinctively different species or regional versions of the same species.
Kenya has often had changes with their government, which is due to the ethnic population from past English colonization and Arabian traders. More recently, Kenya has become the regions geopolitical hub, with the most stable government of the past African colonies. Its political geography is spread into three different time periods. They were known as the late colonial times, the post independent struggle and the two decade struggle Although it has been a long and violent path to come to this, it was well worth it by becoming known as the “anchor of East Africa”.
During the last several thousands years, the alteration of the social domain in Africa has modified
“As of January 2016, the population of Niger was estimated to be 19.8 million and a population growth rate of 3.9%, one of the fastest population growth rates in the world”, (World Bank para 1) according to the article “The World Bank in Niger.” Niger is a politically unstable country with no food security, and many natural disasters. Niger having one of the fastest growing population rates in the world is not a beneficial factor for a developing country to have. The children of Niger are being born quickly, and then are forced to live in poverty. These children are illiterate and forced to start the labor force at an early age. Niger is not economically strong enough to be producing children at such an increasing rate; therefore, Niger must enforce a one or two child policy in order to address their economic troubles.
In the past, research of Africa was not prioritized because it was believed that Africa had not influenced society and that it was not worth studying. Recently, however, more and more people are realizing the value of studying Africa. Studying different aspects of Africa help us understand Africans, ourselves, and the world as a whole. One field of study that should recognize what there is to learn from Africa is economics.
Poverty in Africa has strike the people living there extremely horrible. Africa is the second largest continent in the world. It holds about 1.1 million people, which is 15% of the world’s population. Poverty is about have not enough money to meet basic needs of living which includes food, clothing, and shelter. Being that Africa has a lack of the materials for a humans needs to have a role in society. Although over about 500 billion dollars is sent directly aid the African nation the money is being misused. A large percentage of the money that is sent is used to invest in weapons. This is caused by totalitarian regimes.
At T(max,10) large cold extremes are cover most part of the Western Himalaya region and slowly turn to warming extremes at T(max,50). The spatial differences of regional mean value decrease from 0.14 to -0.20oC for warm extremes and from -0.55 to -0.95oC for cold extremes of return period varies from 10 to 50 years. From Figure 3, the magnitude of the difference of cold extreme is little larger than warm extreme in all three return periods over India. The mean value of warm and cold extreme differences are less than a degree and it indicates the fairly good correspondence between the CMIP5_historical and CRU temperatures for three different return periods. Kharin et al. (2005, 2007) observed the difference between CMIP5 multi-model and ERA-Interim are generally larger for cold extremes than for warm extremes during the period from 1986 to 2005.
