Q & A
How might having a valuable resource affect a region?
Having a valuable resource could be a good thing nd a bad thing. A good thing is that in Southwest and Central Asia the money has made life better. The life expectancy has gotten higher by 15 years. In addition, the number of infants that died in their first year of life has dropped by two thirds. A bad thing is that in Southwest and Central Asia the per capita gross domestic product is the average amount of a countries product, and that people assume that the distribution of the money is divided equally among each citizen, but it is not. Some people are very wealthy but some are poor. These are some pros and cons of having a valuable resource.

How do people adapt to living in a desert region?
There are many ways people adapt to the desert region. People go to the oasis’s for Palm Dates, acacia, and baobob trees and the water. The trees provide fruit for the people and the water provides fluid. Another reason for how people adapt to the desert region is that they wear long robes. They wear these to protect them from the wind blowing the hurtful sand. They also wear them to protect themselves from the burning sun. People adapt to their region in a different way than in America. It is probably very hard to adapt in the desert region with very few resources that they have.
Often times there is centripetal forces in supranational cooperation. There is centripetal cooperation because there is the trade bloc.

Government is when someone governs the state or country and this is necessary because if there was no government then everything will be out of order. If there were no government then I there would be no laws and the citizens will have to make their own laws. Some of those laws that person makes will only be there to fit that person's needs. It would not be fair to have laws that only fit that person's needs and if that person keeps on making those types of laws then they might take all of the power. Without a government then that state or country might turn into a form it a dictatorship. If there was a government then everything will be in order and everyone, even the leader, will have to follow the rule of law. This would be fair because everyone would not be fighting over want they want. It would be hard without a government, there would be unneeded responsibilities, right, and laws.
