Which factors keep people from settling near the rocky mountains?

Agriculture can prove extremely difficult to maintain on a rocky mountain and with such poor infrastructure it is also difficult to import goods on a JIT (Just In Time) sort of basis where you receive these goods as you need them. Infrastructure also includes communication and other services and with such a technologically developed era we depend on technology and this can deter a lot of people from settling in these regions, additionally the wildlife in these regions consists greatly of predators which can be deemed a threat to habitants who are unprepared. The sheer abundance of wildlife and non industrial landscapes can also mean that people will not want to live in these regions

Which of the following issues is causing pollution and damage to water ecosystems in Nigeria? A. dam construction on the Niger River B. toxic dumping by factories C. spills from the nation’s oil production D. too many older vehicles on the roads\ Of the following issues, which is the most significant environmental challenge facing Africa today? A. deforestation due to the construction of shopping centers and restaurants B. desertification caused by poor agricultural practices C. air pollution resulting from the construction of factories in rural areas D. erosion of coastal areas because of sinking sea levels

The correct answers are:

C. spills from the nation's oil production.

Nigeria is one of the leading oil producers in sub-Saharan Africa, but unfortunately, it is not taking cautions towards the protection of the environment. The oil spills are a common thing, and the only thing in mind of the companies is profit, so they are not fixing the problems, but instead, they are leaving it as it is, and the situation is worsening all the time.

B. desertification caused by poor agricultural practices.

The agriculture in Africa, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, in general, is still primitive, and people re not taking into consideration the land degradation that they are causing with their methods. One of the reasons is the poverty, so people only look short term, and try to profit as much as they can, though on the long run, they are destroying the land and inviting desertification, thus losing the land to profit from it.

The purpose of political maps. What information do they contain? What is able to be gleaned from studying political maps? Definition of popular vote and electoral vote Description of the Democratic Party and Republican Party Selection of maps: Select two presidential races from 1940-2000 that are interesting to you. One should be pre-1970, and the other should be post-1980. Based on your research, analyze the spread of power through the nation for each election. What part of the nation had the most votes for the president-elect? Evaluation and interpretation of maps: Based on your research, what conclusions can you make about the balance of party power between the years 1940-2000? How did the balance change? What could possibly account for those changes? Conclusion: What did you learn about political maps? About the voting process? About party power and the political changes in the United States?

Political maps are maps that have to do with government. They show where the boundaries and locations of countries, states, cities, towns and counties are. These boundaries and locations are generally determined by people rather than nature.


Countries are parts of continents with their own central government, sometimes referred to as nations.


States are a unit or part of a country, such as the United States, that have a federal government. Federal means that powers are shared between the states and national government. Capitals are the seats of government for states or where the government of a state takes place.


Counties are the parts in which a state is divided for purposes of government. In some states such as Louisiana these divisions are referred to as parishes. The county seat is the city or town in which the governing of the county takes place. Cities are the parts of states with great concentrations of people living and/or working there. Towns are like cities, but are smaller with fewer people. In addition different areas of a political map may be described as rural, meaning a farming area that is not as populated, urban areas that include big cities, and suburban areas that are the areas that surround cities that are not as populated
