The World According To Julia C.

Question: Globalization-making the world stronger or weaker?
Mt. Everest, is it worth the risk or not? I personally do not think that the climb up Mt. Everest is worth dying for. I believe this because most people who do climb it are doing it for the challenge and thrill. I would much rather live longer than almost finish a challenging climb. Also, if you die on Mt. Everest your bodies will not be brought back down. The thought of people just stepping over my dead body while they climb is very scary. Plus the lack of oxygen can seriously hurt your brain even if you do come back alive. Not only that but you can also get physical damage very easily from the expedition. In my mind I do not think climbing Mt. Everest is worth the risk.

There are different centripetal and centrifugal forces that happen when nations join together in a supranational organization, like the EU. One of the centripetal forces that brings the countries/nations in the EU together is the fact that they almost all belong to a common market. This brings the EU closer because it helps the smaller countries have more power in the global market. A centrifugal force that separates the European Union is the fact that there are many languages within Europe.This separates the EU because it makes it hard for the citizens to communicate with one another.
What is the difference between limited an unlimited government? The difference between limited and unlimited governments is how much power is placed in the leader’s hands. In limited government the leader can not do anything he/she wants. For instance in a limited government the leader has to respect the rule of law, which is where everybody has to follow the laws and nobody is above the law. That is good because the citizens in the society are protected by the laws and the rules are enforced. In unlimited government the ruler can do whatever they choose. For example a leader in a unlimited society can tax the citizens as much as he wants without question. In conclusion, unlimited government allows the leader to do whatever they want, but in limited government the leaders have restrictions.
What makes a good citizen? To be a good citizen means to follow the expectations and rules or laws that have been made in your community or country. This helps the government run smoother because when people follow the laws or responsibilities the place has more peace. For instance one of your laws in America is to pay taxes and to have tolerance of others. One of you responsibilities in America is to stay informed, though you are not forced to. To be a citizen also means that you get certain rights. A right is something that you are allowed to do that is not earned. One of the rights in America is to vote and have freedom of speech. Those are some of the things that make a good citizen.
How do people adapt to living in a desert region? Two main ways that humans have adapted to living in harsh environments like a desert are by wearing different clothing and living more nomadically. They wear loose clothing that is light and comfortable. The clothes fully cover them in order to shade them from the sun and allows the heat to flow away. So as to adapt to the desert many of the citizens of desert climates are nomadic people. Nomadic people living in the desert travel around looking for new resources and also stop at oasis’. This helps the land because the land recovers after being farmed on so it won’t get to dry. The people who live in the desert have to adapt in many ways in order to survive in such harsh environments and they have been doing this for thousands of years.
How might having a valuable resource affect a region? There are many ways that a valuable resource helps shape a region. The money from the resource helps make the GDP in the nation go up. But not all people use that money for the citizens. So that some citizens may be very poor where others are very rich. In most regions with a lot of valuable resources there are many good effects these resources have on the citizens. In regions like Southwest and Central Asia there is a lot of oil, which is a valuable resource. Oil makes the General Domestic Product (GDP) go up, and life expectancy goes up as well. Even though there are many good effects of valuable resources, it doesn’t always make all the citizens of that region as wealthy as others. Although Southwest and Central Asia’s GDP and Life expectancy went up, not all the citizens have the same amount of money as the others. For instance, some people will have very little money where others have lots of money. This is because not all the countries spend oil money in the same way. There are many things that change when your region has a valuable resource- for instance the life expectancy goes up and the GDP goes up as well. Lastly, there are many good and bad effects of having a valuable resource in your region.
