1. Are there any costs in regard to how humans and the environment interact? Why or why not?

2. Find a picture or article on the internet that supports your perspective and include it with your post.

In response to your peers, you should make connections from the original posts to your choice of any one or more of the five themes of geography.

Response #1 (Rohan Sharma)

OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) are the agencies in the United States for the protection of the health of the community on the workplace. Both of these Agencies or other agencies of the same cadre according to the rules and regulations as well as they passed all the laws which have been implemented from last 20 to 30 years for the assurance of cleanliness of the air. These population safety measures have been implemented in Europe by above-mentioned similar actions.

In the last few decades, China is rising as a superpower and taking command of the economy of the globe with industrial growth and dramatic speeds within the nation. Perversely, the price of the surrounding environment and human health have been paid for this dramatic growth. Approximately 250 years ago the United States and Europe experienced the same growing pain as the child is suffering with at present with the massive population for the undergoing of rapid growth and industrial as well as economic revolution. Carelessness and lake of regularity authority for the environmental control and protection department, China is experiencing carbon dioxide emission.

In my view, it is possible that the humans and the environment interact. Nowadays human healthcare the impact of fossil fuel burning and Biomass. Smog is also harming the breathing and human who are suffering with it have some respiratory problems to the chronicle conditions for instance asthma. Not only humans are suffering from the pollutants, but crops and livestock are also affecting by this pollution which ends up by the human consumption. Old age people, children and other persons who are already suffering from any disease are more sensitive to these adverse health risks which turned them to severe sickness or death. World Health Organization reported that Biomass usage as a fuel is the cause of death of approximately 420,000 people in the ruler areas. Nearly 300,000 people are dying because of this pollution in the urban areas. Smog is also hazardous and has a higher risk of health for the humans which degree gets the infrastructure such as roads, buildings, and bridges from acid rain.

Response #2 (Tram Doan)

The interaction between human beings and the environment incurs some costs. Human activities have often attributed to the pollution of the environment, which in return influence them negatively. To overcome such negative consequences, the members of the society will incur a cost to either reverse the situation or relocate to avoid the menace that could result from their activities. For instance, the toxic smog that had blanketed Beijing had led to air pollution, and it took place because of human activities. The older adults and the children were the most affected since they developed respiratory issues. Hence, this led to a cost where the people had to pay for hospital bills for the affected to get medication. On top of this, the people found the pollution to be extreme such that they were uncomfortable living in Beijing, which made them consider relocating to other areas. This was likely to incur an additional cost since it would mean that a new life could be established. Moreover, the people were not living their homes to go and work, which is costly for them because it interrupts their daily lives.

The picture below shows land degradation due to mining activities. Even though the mining activities contributed to the well-being of the economy, it has left a polluted land that has incurred a cost to the people living in the environment (“A Picture Of Land Degradation Due To Mining – Google Search”). For instance, people are forced to relocate to other areas because the environment becomes unsustainable for the living of the people. Consequently, they will be required to pay some cost to start lives in other areas as well as the price needed to replenish it for use in the future.

SEQ CHAPTER \h \r 1Geol 210: Homework #2 Name _______________________

Locating Earthquakes and Measuring Their Magnitude

The figure below shows seismograms for the same earthquake that were recorded at 3 different locations (Fontana, Kramer Junction, and CSUSB). The horizontal axis is time. Each tick mark represents one second, and selected times are labeled in hours:minutes:seconds. The vertical axis is amplitude of shaking, and the amplitude scale is shown next to the seismogram recorded at CSUSB.

1) Mark with an arrow the arrival of the p-wave, the s-wave, and the surface wave on each of the 3 seismograms

image1.jpg

2) From the seismograms, calculate the time delay between the arrival of the p-waves and the arrival of the s-waves at each station and write your answers in the table below.

StationS wave arrival timeP wave arrival timeTime delay between S & PDistance to earthquake
Fontana

CSUSB

3) Using the diagram below and the time delay between the arrival of the p-waves and the s-waves, calculate how far away the earthquake was from each of the three stations, and write your answers in the table on the previous page.

4) What was the maximum amplitude of shaking at the CSUSB station? ___________

5) Using the maximum amplitude of shaking at CSUSB and the time delay between the p and s waves at the CSUSB station, use the diagram below to calculate the magnitude of this earthquake.

For your initial post in the discussion topic, identify a typical dinner menu you might have in your new home (cape town, south Africa) and discuss how that dinner is representative of your new region. In your discussion post, consider the following:

· Location (e.g., what can be grown there because of the climate, soils, etc.)

· Culture (e.g., what is acceptable or not acceptable to eat or drink because of customs, religions, etc.)

· Human/environmental interactions (e.g., how the environment and culture have interacted to produce what is on your plate)

· Movement (e.g., whether items can be readily purchased due to globalization)

The Pacific Hinge region is still part of the United States. Most of the eating practices are going to stay the same. Although the more mountains regions up north west, like Seattle may see an increase in fish due to the area being so close to the harbor. Due to globalization most things can be purchased in that region, although it is much cheaper than most other parts of the world to get things such as fish and other forms of seafood there. The Culture in the area is one of a harbor town similar to Boston in the way that it is practically built into the water.

The location that I currently live in is in Erie, PA in the United States. The region or part of the world that I am relocating to is Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. I am moving there for travel opportunities, vacation, warmer weather, and humanitarian work. The food that I am used to is fast food (McDonald’s, Wendy’s, KFC, and others) so going to this new location is going to be interested. One of the meals that I will be having while I am there is Dominican Black Bean Soup. This consists of black beans, rice, onions, celery, peppers, and garlic. This is important to the region because of the region it is located. The location is helpful for the growing of peppers, beans, and onions. This region allows for the growth of crops to be used for fresh food. This is a cultural dish that allows me to learn more about the people and learn about where the food is. This is a representation of the region because many of the meals people eat, include rice, beans, and meat. The meals consist of many things that are in the meal that I am going to try while I am there. The grown ingredients will also be fresh and I will get to learn about what the people go through in order to produce the crops. The movement between the islands is also because the other regions have resources my new region does not. The people can move between the islands because of the water surrounding it. The region allows for many things to be trading, imported, and exported. I am excited about my new region and the new food that I will be trying. I will get involved in the culture and the people and learn new things from my experience.
