The World According To Michael P

Editorial

It is not worth the risk because, if they didn’t acclimatize then they would risk getting ill from the lack of oxygen. Freezing temperatures and high winds can kill you. Also, when you get to the summit the oxygen is 27% compared to sea level. Another thing to keep in mind is that when more than a dozen climber got to the summit a storm came and killed nine people. If you don't get acclimated then you can have nausea, headaches, get swelling in the brain, fluid in the lungs and death. Finally, 25% of people never return from their expedition.

It can turn a place that would be impossible to live into a luxury. in Saudi Arabia with the use of money mostly from oil they were able to build a city with the most skyscrapers in the world. They did this by sticking long pipes into the ground threw the sand into the stone. Then the pipes stay firm in the stone so they don’t fall over. When they built the building they built it on top of the pipes so the building wouldn't fall over in the sand. They built a building where a lot of wind would hit it so it could fall over easy. They stopped this by putting an exo shell made of metal to hold it in place and inside the metal had things that balanced the weight to make it stay up straight. the things that they were able to do with the money they got from oil is build tons of skyscrapers in a hard ground to build on and build a skyscraper to not fall over.

What makes a good citizen?

A citizen has responsibilities, one of them is jury duty which is a law. A citizen has rights, some of them are freedom of speech, in addition to the right to vote. To become a United States citizen the person should take a test so the United States knows that you know the laws and won’t break them.

What do you think is the most effective style of government and why?

The most effective style of government is representative democracy. Representative democracy is the most effective style of government because all citizens have a chance to be involved with the government. That is important because if citizens didn't have any control over the government, they may not have any responsibilities or the government could do whatever they wanted and if the government was bad then they could hurt people. Another reason why representative democracy is the most effective style of government is because their isn't one leader. This is important because if one person was in charge it would be more like a dictatorship or a monarchy. Those are bad because the person in charge may be bad or unpopular and the citizens can’t get them out of power. The reason why I think representative democracy is the most effective style of government is because people are in control of their government and their isn't one leader.

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

Within supranational cooperation, there are often centrifugal forces that divide nations. One centrifugal force is that people in the supranational cooperation most likely speak different languages. That is bad because if there are different countries and everyone spoke in different languages than you wouldn't be able to travel and communicate to people in your supranational cooperation. Also it will make government much harder. Another centrifugal force is that people in Western Europe are wealthier than people in Eastern Europe. This can be bad because what the EU tries to do is they try to take some of the wealthy people’s money and give it to the Eastern Europe people for projects. So citizens of Western Europe complain because they did all this hard work for the money and then lose it. I think that within supranational cooperation, there are often centrifugal forces that divide nations. Because people will usually be speaking different languages and people in Western Europe are wealthier than people in Eastern Europe.

This relates to my last post because people can't understand each other if they speak different languages.

How do people adapt to living in a desert region?

They have challenges that they need to overcome. One challenge is the sun and they overcome it by wearing loose clothing that protects them from the sun. The loose clothing protects them from the sun because the sun can’t touch their skin and it needs to be loose because then they would get to hot. Another challenge is moving across the desert and they overcome this by using the stars and riding camels. Riding camels helps because they are well suited for desert travel because they can walk long distances over dry ground with little food or water. After desertification, deforestation, and drought the people have challenges and they have to adapt to them like wearing loose cloths and riding camels.
