The World According To Charlotte h.


Climbing Mount Everest, is it worth the risk or not? Even though being known as someone who conquered the tallest mountain in the world and have your name be almost famous would be great, I just don't think it's worth the risk. Reason why’s? One reason I don't want climb Mount Everest is because of how much money it costs. The average cost per person is about $38,000! That's a lot of money! Another reason is the dangers that await you on your climb. If you are not experienced enough, Mount Everest can have unfortunate events for you. Climbers can be swept away by avalanches, fall into crevices, crush by shifting seracs, not acclimatize enough so you don't have enough oxygen left in your body, make one little mistake and fall down the mountain, or simply just freeze in the horrible weather! I understand why some people want the challenge, and why some people want too it their own way, like without oxygen, or do it the fastest or even do it blind! But I don't think that I could ever do that or even want to do that.

This is a picture of the tallest mountain in the world. At 29,035 feet, many people have attempted and succeeded climbing this giant. But many have also failed on its hidden dangers.

I think globalization makes the world stronger. There are many reasons to prove this. One is job opportunities. In globalization, different parts of a product can be made in different countries. So if those countries are together producing something, that means that it creates more job opportunities in all those countries. Also it can create more money for the countries that are selling the product, which can help the devoting countries improve. Globalization can also unite countries that are working together to make the product. This is why I think globalization is making the world stronger.

This map shows ties between countries that work together to produce products for the world.
Globalization unites other nations while working together.
The earth would be much more divided without globalization.

What makes a good citizen? To be a good citizen means to follow and obey personal rights and political rights. One personal right you have to follow is the Freedom of speech, which means you have to respect other people's thoughts, and let them speak for themselves. A political right you have to follow is Right to Vote. People can vote if they want and for whoever they want, and you have to respect that. Being a good citizen also means taking care of your responsibilities, such as personal duties and social duties. A personal duty you have to do is pay taxes, and that is a responsibility you don't have a choice on. A social duty you should follow is the responsibility to tolerate others. If you follow these rights and responsibilities, you will be a good citizen.

This represents a good citizen because we have the right to vote, and we are expected to vote. Voting is being a good citizen.

What is the difference between unlimited and limited government forms of government? The difference between limited and unlimited forms of government is that in limited government, you only have a certain amount of power, where as unlimited, you have no limit on what you can do. Also, limited governments allow people to be free, and unlimited government has complete control over citizens lives. An example of limited government is when you have a democracy. Citizens can vote, and be free, under the president's power. The president has only a certain amount of power, and cannot have complete control over the country. A country that has limited government is the United States of America. The people there have the right to vote, and the president respects them. An example of unlimited government is dictatorship. There is one ruler, and citizens don't get to vote for him. He controls everything and can do whatever he wants. A country that has unlimited government was Germany, back when Adolf hitler was dictator. He ruled everything, and citizens didn't get a say. Unlimited government is very different from limited government. Most times, limited works better, and is more fair for everyone

This "equal" sign represents limited government, which I thought no is a more fair and equal way to be.

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation? There are centrifugal and centripetal forces of the EU. A centrifugal force and centripetal force of the EU is the jobs/ work availability. A centripetal force is that people are able to travel freely across borders to find work, or homes. A centrifugal force is that the western side of Europe is wealthier then the rest of Europe. This means that people are moving to the western side to find jobs, and the people on the western side think they are taking away all the job opportunities. A centripetal force but also a centrifugal force is the people, countries and their issues.A centripetal force of the EU is that they bring countries together to work on difficulties they have, and they encourage Europeans to think of themselves as citizens of Europe. A centrifugal force of the EU is that when a country joins the EU, they have to give up some of their power, which may mean decisions that they do not agree on. A centripetal force but also a centrifugal force of the EU is the culture. A centripetal force is that the EU is united, but still recognizes the diversity of its members. They have an anthem, and a flag to represent themselves. A centrifugal force though is that with so many different languages, it is hard to communicate, and country pride and rivalry is big in the EU. There are good reasons to be in the EU, but also bad. This supranational cooperation may continue to grow, or to disappear.

I chose this image to represent all the cultures that have come together in the EU because I believe to EU is helpful and a great way to live as a nation.

How do people adapt to living in a desert region? People adapt to a desert region in many ways. Nomads wear long loose clothing to protect them from the sun. An example of that is the wandering Tuareg. The Tuareg nomads wear long loose clothing to protect them from the sun. Another adaptation is growing date palms, a kind of tree. Date Palms are a very useful tree found in an oasis. Every part of the tree is useful. The fruit is eaten fresh or dry. It struck and leaves are used as building materials. Fiber from its bark is made into rope. Date pits or seeds are burned as fuel or fed to animals. There are many adaptations people have to make living in a desert region, but these are just few. Keep in mind that there is not very plants you can grow, because it's all marginal land and in a drought.

This is a photo of a date palm. This is probably the most useful tree in a dessert because if all of its materials you can get from it.

How might a valuable resource affect the region? A valuable resource can affect the region in many ways. Oil is a nonrenewable resource. Therefore, when the oil runs out the country will have to go to a renewable resource. The reason that SW and Central Asia have so much of it was because long ago, this region was underwater. Remains of plants and animals fell to the ocean floor. Layers of sand built up over the remains. Pressure and heat changed the remains into oil and natural gas. A layer of impermeable rock kept most oil trapped inside. Once all the oil is taken, it takes to long to form again so there will be no oil left. Also if oil is a key resource for that region it will get them money. When selling oil, it will raise the GDP. For a smaller country that will mean it will raise the per capital also. Per capita is GDP over population. So if there is a high GDP and little population, that means there is a lot of money for each oil, a valuable resource has good affects and bad affects on the region.
