There are many different ways that people adapt to living in a desert region. One way that people have adapted to living in a desert region is by wearing a certain type of clothing. In the Ergs the Tuareg wear long flowing blue robes. This kind of clothing protects them from the scorching sun while keeping them cool at the same time by letting cool breezes flow through it. The Tuareg wrap blue cloth around their heads and across their faces. One other way that people have adapted to living in a desert region is by moving to an oasis. Oasis’s provide water for people that live near them or nomads that travel and stop at them some time. In an oasis some farmers grow cash crops. Cash crops are crops like dates, wheat, barley and vegetables. These farmers will then trade these crops for something that they can’t get in an oasis but visiting nomads can. Throughout the history of people that have lived in a desert region many adaptations had to be made to survive the brutal climate.

What is the most effective style of government and why?

Representative Democracy is the most effective style of government. It is the most effective because it give people a reasonable rights and responsibilities. Democracy means that the government is ruled by the people. People's lives should always be fair because the people are the ones who make their own decisions. According to the constitution decisions about changing laws should almost always be fair because the only way to change the laws is if the people and representatives vote for it. Representative Democracy is better than Direct Democracy because people do not have time to vote for everything. Representative Democracy is a style of government that has been used for a long time and so far it has been very successful.
