Your task this semester will be to “adopt” one of the newspapers listed below and to explore how our geography course themes are being played out within another part of the world. Each of these newspapers has an English language version that is accessible on the Internet (addresses follow the newspaper title). Once you decide upon a part of the world and a newspaper that interests you, you are required to complete an assignment that is due near the end of the semester. START EARLY, because assembling your portfolio of news stories will take some time and it will require some thought to put your examples into the context of the course. You needn’t wait until we cover a particular portion of the world in class…feel free to browse the text in appropriate chapters to get a sense of what some key regional issues might be in a part of the world you wish to explore. The assignment has two parts and both are required for full credit: PART ONE (30 points): Assemble a portfolio of SIX articles from the newspaper (provide title of article, date, and copy of article) that you can argue are OUTSTANDING examples of timely issues/problems/events shaping that particular region AND which fit clearly into one or more of the course’s 5 regional themes (1) Environmental Geography, 2) Population and Settlement, 3) Cultural Diversity, 4) Geopolitical Setting, and 5) Social/Economic Setting). Articles must be dated since February 1, 2019. Choose articles that focus on stories within your region. (Don’t choose a Russian article that reports on a typhoon in China). FOR EACH OF THE SIX ARTICLES, also note which of the five themes (1 or more) best fit the topic (Environment, Population, Culture, etc) and write a one-paragraph summary of the article that makes such a connection clear. You may choose all your articles dealing with one theme (for example, environmental issues or geopolitics) OR you can vary it to include examples of any and all themes. USE ONLY ONE NEWSPAPER SOURCE. You will have a total of six summary paragraphs and six articles to turn in. PART TWO (30 points): Answer the following discussion question (about two double spaced pages (typed) total): How do recent issues and events in your region covered by the newspaper illustrate the general processes of a) “DIVERSITY” and/or b) “GLOBALIZATION” within your selected region? You can emphasize “diversity” or “globalization” in your discussion or you can explore how both are evident. You may want to revisit initial discussions of these ideas in the text (Chapter 1). For this discussion, you may certainly rely on MORE than just the six articles used above…you may also use examples/events discussed elsewhere in these newspapers. NEWSPAPERS – Choose ONE 1. Granma International (Cuba) http://en.granma.cu 2. The Moscow Times (Russia) http://www.themoscowtimes.com 3. Hurriyet Daily News (Turkey) http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/ 4. Lagos Vanguard (Nigeria) http://www.vanguardngr.com/ 5. Jerusalem Post (Israel) http://www.jpost.com/ 6. Times of India (India) http://www.timesofindia.com 7. People’s Daily (China) http://en.people.cn/ 

————IMPORTANT
 For extra credit, World Geography students may choose one of the newspapers below and complete a second version of Project 2…same instructions and same requirements as on your regular assignment! The maximum possible points will be 30. Once again, keep in mind that you must use articles dated since Feb 1, 2019. Please choose from one of the following newspapers: EXTRA CREDIT NEWSPAPERS – Choose ONE 1. The Egypt Daily News (Egypt) http://www.egyptdailynews.com/ 2. The Nation (Pakistan) http://www.nation.com.pk/ 3. Vi?t Nam News (Vietnam) https://vietnamnews.vn/ 4. The Rio Times (Brazil) http://riotimesonline.com/ • Note: you can only get 3 free articles/week on The Rio Times, so click on most relevant articles and check each week and/or open a new browser (e.g., Chrome, then Firefox, then Safari) and/or move to a new computer in the library and you should be able to click on 3 more articles. If this seems to confusing, then pick a different newspaper from the list 141newspaperproject21.pdf141newspaperXCREDITproject1.pdfPosted: 8 months agoDue: 18/04/2019Budget: $30Tags: EA

You’ve learned a lot about the formation and movement of hurricanes and typhoons. For this assignment, you are going to demonstrate your knowledge and use an animation you’ve explored as evidence to enhance and provide proof in your discussion. 
Visit the “Earth – Map of Wind, Weather, and Ocean Conditions Animation” here  or use the link available in the Week 2 Module display in Canvas. You will focus your attention on sea-surface movement and temperature. Click on the “earth” button on the bottom, left side of the page (see image below). 
 
Note that the image should be in color. If it isn’t, you may need to use a different web browser. Once the animation menu is visible, click on the “Ocean” link. This will change the map to show current ocean conditions. See image below.
 Lastly, click on the “Currents” link under Animate to change the map so it illustrates current ocean surface currents. Your map should look similar to the image below. 
 
Click on the “earth” button again to hide the menu. Now, you are viewing surface, ocean current movement. Temperature values are also shown – currents in red, orange, and yellow represent warmer sea-surface temperatures. Currents in green, blue, and purple represent colder sea-surface temperatures. Rotate the Earth (by clicking and dragging) and take a look at the currents on the west coast of the United States and compare them to the east coast. Take a screenshot or picture of your view so I know you are looking at the correct area and current settings. You will submit this along with a written response. 
Respond to the following prompt:
Based on what you’ve learned this week (in the readings, videos, animation, etc.) – in your own words, describe why hurricanes are so prevalent on the east coast of the United States, but not the west coast. 
Your response should be in complete sentences. Remember this is an academic assignment, not a Facebook post or text message – proper spelling and punctuation count! See the rubric below for specifics on grading criteria. Your written response should be at least 200 words. 
To submit your assignment (both your image and written response), you can submit them together in one document, you can attach them separately, or you can place your written response in the text box below and attach your image.

Your final paper will be a minimum 1,500 word written synopsis of your personal impact on the Bay Area Environment. You need to address the topics covered in this course and how your lifestyle choices relate to each topic (e.g. carbon footprint, water footprint, energy use, transportation habits, dietary habits, etc.). You should consider formatting your synopsis around the scientific method/process, where you are asking a question (how can I change my lifestyle to promote a sustainable future), complete background research by gathering external sources to support your position, include data (numerical values of your carbon footprint, water footprint, etc.), and you should also discuss how the Bay Area as a whole can change (e.g. you can bike to school/work more often, but the Bay Area can invest in rebuilding our transportation infrastructure to promote increased public transit). Finally, a strong conclusion detailing how you, and all of those who call the Bay Area home, can reduce your personal impact on the Bay Area FinalPaper1.pdfPosted: 7 months agoDue: 17/05/2019Budget: $3

A+ Paper

Your goal is to write up your findings as a walking field guide, a text that any person could pick up and use to understand the evolving urban landscape seen on foot. It will chronologically describe the historical development of this urban landscape via that trajectory, while still offering observations about current trends. For example, you might start your walking tour at the historic core of your town, with the oldest structures. But you will also want to inform the reader about the new development along the way.As the reader passes through different districts, your guidebook should help them answer the three key basic questions above. What was the historical process that made this landscape? What evidence can we see? How are current processes of urban development remaking this landscape?Your text should be integrated with a map and enriched by photographs and other visual materials you deem necessary to tell your story. Your map need not be professionally done, but can be hand-drawn and scanned. Your challenge will be to construct a narrative of this landscape’s past, present, and possible future in the most concise yet complete way, nicely designed and presented for ease of use by the general public.Your concrete final product should be the equivalent of about 5-8 pages of double-spaced text, woven with present and historical photos, scanned maps, and bibliographic references. The entire size of the file should be no more than 1 MB. The more important final product, however, should be your demonstrated ability to reconstruct the history of ordinary landscapes using the powers of careful observation and skillful research. Posted: 3 years agoDue: 08/12/2016Budget: $50
