Does globalization make the world stronger?

There are many pros and cons of globalization but over it makes the world stronger. First of all, it makes stuff more affordable because if there is competition. This is important because if one company says I will drop the price then the other company says no I will drop the price more it brings the price down so the buyers won’t have to spend as much money. Secondly, this brings people together. For example the pencil was made with wood from forests the graphite came from mines the ingredients for rubber came from all over including oil from Saudi Arabia or Venezuela then the stuff all gets shipped to the factory that puts it together then it gets on a ship or a truck and goes somewhere and gets unloaded then gets shipped to shops where someone buys them. This is why globalization makes the world a better place.

Is Mount Everest worth the risk?

Mount Everest is worth the risk. It is worth the risk because many people are very happy when they finally get to the top and it is a personal achievement. Even though it is a great physical challenge and very hard to do when people get to the summit they are greater by an amazing view of the himalayas some people even start crying, Adrian Balaster climbed Mount Everest with out oxygen and at the top he felt so happy he cried. Climbing Mount Everest without oxygen is super hard because on the peak people only get 25% oxygen then on sea level. It is also worth the risk because even though it is very dangerous many people think it is very fun. Even though about ten percent of people on Mount Everest die that's only because people don’t listen to their guide. For these reasons Mount Everest is worth the risk.

How does "black gold" help shape a region?

Crude oil also known as black gold helps shape regions. There are more job opportunities because people need to help get the oil out of the underground oil reserves then people need to bring the crude oil to the refiners where they refine the oil finally, people need to ship it out to the other countries. This important because poor people can work on one of these jobs and make some money so their kids can go to school and have better job opportunities. The infant mortality rate go down and life expectancy goes up this help the countries ranking or HDI go up. This is important because more people can get an education because their parents had these job opportunities and then they can be doctors or builders or something and there will be better buildings and roads and other thing that make life more pleasant. Valuable resources help shape countries.

Valuable resources like oil can make countries rich.


How do people adapt to living in a desert region?

People that live in a desert region use many different tactics to make life as good as possible. The Tuareg raise camels, goats, cattle, and sheep and are outside a lot of the time. To adapt to the harsh climate of the Sahara they wear long loose clothing and cloth wrapped around their heads. This helps them so the sun doesn't make them warmer and give them sunburns. Another adaptation is that people live near an oasis. People that live near an oasis have to be very careful if they use too much water the source will dry up. Droughts are very common in the Sahara so the water source will help them survive. People can plant crops. some people use cash crops to make money but, most people are subsistence farmers. This is important because people need to have a good source of water. This also makes them able to have food. People use mud bricks to make their houses in the oasis. If people use trees for their houses the deforestation will increase desertification. People adapt in many ways to the harsh climate of the desert.

What brings together a supranational government?

To have citizenship of a country and have citizenship of a supranational government is a good thing that you can benefit from. A force that works for supranational is the parliament which is representatives of their countries come together and work on problems that they all share even though there are many different countries each country has their own cultural identity.This is important because with a lot of countries working together you can solve problems lots of the countries share and then the individual countries can zero in on smaller problems. A common market helps work for the supranational government because people can try different types of food and buy thing for another country and they don’t have to pay tariffs (taxes) to the country that produced it. This is important because people will feel more connected to the other countries around and near them because people are usually afraid of things they don't know. Supranational governments can benefit you in many ways.

Why is government necessary?

Government is necessary because people need some sort of rules. Governments are necessary because even if the government is a dictatorship or a junta in which citizens might not have as many rights there are still leaders making sure citizens don't do anything they want to do. This is important because citizens know what they are and aren't allowed to do so the place is not complete anarchy. Governments are necessary because society runs on the government for example some of the money from taxes paves the roads and if the government wasn't there to control the money nothing would happen. This is important because if government wasn't there people wouldn't have responsibility. These are just some of the many reasons governments are necessary.

This is the American Constitution.


What does being a good citizen mean?

Being a good citizen means that people should follow the laws, because if people don’t follow the laws that could end up getting in trouble. People also want to listen to the rules of public places even though people have freedom they want to be informed that the people who have authority in the place you are in might want to fine people even if they didn't know about the rule because they have been working hard all day and their tolerance level will be pretty low. People also should pay their taxes because the state that you live in gets benefited by it because then they can make places safer and pay the citizens more.

This is a sign of justice.
