Q&A

EURO

In the European Union there are centrifugal forces that divide people. One example of a centrifugal force is that not all countries have adopted the the euro. There are five countries that decided to keep their own currency and did not adopt the euro. The countries that did not adopt the euro are Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, United Kingdom, and Sweden. This means it is harder to exchange money when traveling from country to country. Another centrifugal force that divides people is language. In the European Union there are more than 20 different languages. When a person travels into another country it makes communicating difficult and that does not bring people together. While the European Union was created to bring people together there are still centrifugal forces in the Union that pull people apart.

African Sahara

How do people adapt to living in a desert region?

People adapt in a desert region by wearing loose clothing. They do this so they won't get sunburn and the heat will stay away. In the desert the men were blue and they were long so they can cover there whole body. When traders are in the desert and there almost out of water they would want to find a oasis. Some oasis are on a map but they have might have gone through drought. We need to save the oasis from pollution and not chase drought and soon everything will become desert and save water.

Oil

Valuable resources like oil can have a negative effect on a region. If there's an oil spill a lot of animals would die of poisoning. Also, oil is really hard to clean up and spreads quickly. Not all regions use the money from oil reserves in a way to help people. Saddam Hussein spent oil money on war materials. OPEC works to control oil prices. However, they don't always work together when it comes to oil prices on different countries. This is why valuable resources such as oil can have a negative effect on a region.
