Mt.Everest - Is It worth the risk?

Yes. You might be risking your life, but the feeling that you get when you get to the top is Priceless. You only live once, right? The Journey to the top is amazing. The sights you get to see, the Adventures you have, the Risks you have to take, the People you get to meet - It's a thrill! While its one of the greatest risks you will ever take, I'd say it's worth it. The climb - nothing better!

Globalization - making the world stronger or weaker?

While Globalization does pollute the earth, it also brings culture, knowledge, goods, language, and ideas to different civilizations, places. It also helps countries with poverty. People can now afford to stay alive, they can pay their debts. With globalization, we have learned to share our burdens. When one country does badly with its economy, all the other countries do, too.

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

There are two forces that work for and go against the EU. They are called the centripetal and centrifugal forces.

An example of a centrifugal force is the use of the Euro. Western Europe is wealthier and Eastern Europe is poorer. The EU spends a lot of money on the Eastern side of Europe and the Western side is not happy with this.

An example of a centripetal force is the trade bloc. It “opens” the borders to other countries so that people can travel through freely to find jobs and deliver goods.

In conclusion , the centrifugal and centripetal forces keep the EU from being a perfect Supranational cooperation .

How do People Adapt to Living in a Desert Region?

Over time , People have developed lots of different adaptations to life in the desert .

One of them would be using camels to transport their goods . Nomads like the Tuareg , also known as the “ Blue men of the desert” , have very little belongings , and a family's belongings will fit on just one camel . They are called “Blue Men Of The Desert” , because they wear long loose clothing that protects them from the burning sun . As you might have guessed , they wear this cloth in blue .

People have also adapted to life in the desert by trading meat , cheese , or milk for grain , vegetables , fruits , and water at oases they pass .

People have found ways to use technology to make their lives easier in the desert by drilling oases . Drilling machines cut through rock to find underground water . Electric pumps then draw this water to the surface .

These were a few adaptations to life in the desert that people in Africa have developed . Desertification is a world problem , but luckily , people are still finding ways to survive out there in the seas of sand . You hopefully have a better idea of what life is like out there .
