Do you think it's worth it to climb Mount Everest,? why or why not?

Conquering Mount Everest

In my opinion climbing mount Everest is not worth it. I think this for many reasons. One reason is because of the earthquakes on Mount Everest. Earthquakes can result in death and severe injuries. Beck Weathers Lost His Nose and Both Hands on His Fateful Everest Climb. On May 10, 1996, Beck Weathers and 10 other climbers on an exposed stretch of Mount Everest, 26,000 feet above sea level. A blizzard turning into ice and snow. Their supplemental oxygen was completely out, and they struggled to breath. They screamed at one another and slapped on each other's shoulders to stay warm and awake. Even a wink of sleep could be deadly .The next reason why I don't think it's worth it is because of avalanches.The Avalanche is the most dangerous part of the climb. More climbers have died here than any other part of the mountain. This can be dangerous for many places of the mountain. For example climbing the Khumbu icefall. Here climbers must cross deep crevasses on a wobbly leader. They have to be careful of falling blocks of ice, anything they stand on can fall at any second without warning. Another reason I wouldn't like to climb Everest is the cost. Climbing Mt. Everest has become a big business. Private guides charge 70,000 dollars per person. A climber may spend another 8,000 - 20,000 dollars on personal gear. The cost for a crew of seven climbers can quickly add up to hundreds of thousands of dollar. The cost of a crew for seven climbers, including guides, cooks, and a doctor costs 98,000 dollars. Transportation and lodging for a crew of seven on the way to base camp is $41,000. The permits and fees for seven climbers can result in a total of 79,000 dollars. Supplies, including fuel, oxygen, batteries, tents, medical supplies, and climbing gear can cost up to 49,000 dollars for a team of 7 climbers. This shows that there are many reasons to not climb Mt.everest.

Is globalization making the world stronger or weaker?

In my opinion globalization is making the world weaker. A couple reasons why I think this is because of some developing countries lack laws to protect the environment, many poor countries also lack worker protection laws, and globalization can be harmful to workers in developing countries. Developing countries lack laws to protect the environment makes the world weaker. This is because some factories set up in countries, oftentime dump toxic waste into rivers and streams. They give off deadly fumes into the air. Too much pollution can be illegal in developing countries. Countries that also lack worker protection laws can make the world weaker. One reason why I think this makes the world weaker is without these laws, factories can require workers to work long hours for low wages. And that's so unfair! A sneaker factory in Asia might hire an adult and pay them $2 for working 12 hours. They can also hire children, who are paid even less. Since globalization can be harmful to workers in developing countries it makes the world weaker. This is because many Americans have lost their jobs because of factory closings. Towns and cities may also suffer when employment residents move to other places to find work. This is why I think globalization is making the world weaker.

Q & A

How might having valuable resources environment?

Having valuable resource like oil can have positive and negative affects on a region. One positive affect is people can make money selling oil and the country's GDP will increase. For example, in South West Asia, both United Arab Emirates and Kuwait have high GDP’s from exporting and selling their oil reserves to countries like the U.S. A negative effect of having a valuable resource like oil is that it can lead to war. Iraq tried to take over Kuwait’s oil reserves using their military. There was a three week war and other countries like the U.S. helped Kuwait stop Iraq. The U.S. helped because they wanted to make sure that Kuwait would still be able to export oil to other countries. In addition, after a while, depending on a non-renewable valuable resource like oil is negative because once it runs out those countries that depended on it won’t have a way of making money.

This is what an oil reserve looks like.

Q&A

What Is Geography? Geography is a study of Earth, People, and their interaction.

In the first place, Earth has many physical features. In Geography we are learning about all the continents like Asia, or Australia, and even Antarctica, and the people that live there. We will also be learning about bodies of water like oceans, lakes, and also streams. In addition people study maps and where places are on Earth. People do this because when they're talking about places like states, cities, and continents too, they both know what they're talking about, and it gives them a sense of direction. Also we are learning about interaction that people have with Earth. For example people in Alaska where warmer clothes and go fishing for food V.S. in the Amazon people don't have to wear that many clothes and they would get their food from the trees. In conclusion, Geography is really important because it teaches us how people and different things relate to Earth.

The sun and the earth are big parts of geography.

A Good Citizen

Good citizens have certain expectations that they will take care of certain things and perform personal duties. There are several requirements to be considered a good citizen, such as paying taxes or always following the law. Paying taxes and paying for government services and public works are examples of personal duties. Good citizens also have social responsibilities like speaking their minds without harming others or being registered to vote. When voting people should be informed about the issues they are voting for. And it's important for a good Citizen to be part of a community by being involved in public affairs.

Being a good citizen has a lot of responsibilities.

What is the difference between unlimited and limited forms of government?

Limited government is when governments have checks and balances in place so that the people in charge will not abuse power. In an Unlimited government, the government could have too much power, and they could end up abusing it because there are no checks and balances. An example of Unlimited government is dictatorship. North Korea is an example of dictatorship. In this type of government, there is one leader and he or she controls everything. When he or she makes a wrong decision there are no other branches of government that can change it. A leader in an Unlimited government can take advantage of their position. In an Limited government many checks and balances exist. Examples of these are Constitution and rule of law. Constitution is an example of a limit to government because it is a rule book for a country. The Constitution tells us the rights and responsibilities citizens have. The Rule Of Law is another example of a check or balance because everyone in the country has to follow the law, including the president and or leader. Because citizens have to follow the law

Unlimited and Limited government are so different that the form of government itself has no similarities.

Centripetal Forces allow the EU to work together. The EU has a common market that unites its nations. The common market allows goods and workers to travel more freely across the border. The creation of the EU trading bloc connects to Europe. This connects EU to more power and wealth in comparison to other nations. EU nations cooperate with each other for one economic goal.
