The World According To Nate G.

Q; Globalization- making the world stronger or weaker? A; Globalization is making the world a stronger place for many reasons. First of all, since organizations have been expanding throughout the world, it is making jobs for people in places that poverty is a huge disadvantage. Its also making products a lot cheaper, more accessable, and easier to make. Another thing globalization is doing is helping cooperation between countries where there had not been before, and making them have to work together to make products. It can even help influence more poor and underdeveloped countries get in on big buessnesses and potentialy turn around thier finachal state. Overall, globalization can create new opportunities, new ideas, and open new markets that people may have not had in their home country.
Mt. Everest, It it worth the risk? I think climbing Mt. Everest isn't worth the risk for a few reasons. First of all, according to quora.com, climbing Mt. Everest has a 4% chance of death. This is a risk I personally would never be willing to take. To climb up a freezing cold mountain is also a bad reason to risk your life for. Even though you have lifelong bragging rights, it's not worth the pain and money. Speaking of money, it costs $70,000 on average. By the end of your climb you are broke, tired, cold, and aching. For these reasons I don't think climbing Mt. Everest is worth it.

Q: What is the most successful form of government? A: The most effective form of government is representative democracy. First of all, in representative democracy citizens are included in the government and help make decisions about the government, such as electing representatives to vote on governmental problems or laws depending on the subject. In election representatives to vote for you, things get done much more efficiently. In dictatorships and absolute monarchies, only one person has say in government. That could be problematic in that if you disagree with the person in charge, you most likely wouldn't like the way the government would be being ran either. In democracy's there is also normally limited government, rights of the minority, constitution's, separation of power, and rule of law, so citizens can feel respected and safe, and have their rights protected. In other governments there are not always constitutions and laws in place, such as anarchy's. These are a few reasons why representative democracy is the most effective form of government, and you can rely on it to keep your country safe and successful.

Many people conveniently place themselves next to an oasis so they can find water easily and be prepared for drought, and so they can be near plants like date palms and acacia.
