What is globalization and what does it do?
Pros and Cons of Globalization
How does geography impact where, how, and why people live where they do?
Walking and Biking
This map represents the percent of commuters who bike or walk in the United States. The red areas represent 0% - 1.5% of commuters bike or walk and the light green areas represent 5.5% - 71.7% of commuters bike or walk. The other colors represent percentages that are in between red and light green. Based on the information on this map I can infer that the eastern side of the United States is more wealthy than the west. I think this because the east can afford more cars to transport themselves instead of biking or walking. This could mean that in the future the eastern side of the United States will grow in population because of desired transportation.
This map represents the number of people per square mile. The red areas represent greater than 5000 people per square mile and the dark green areas represent less than 1 person per square mile. The other colors represent numbers in between dark green and red. Based on the information on this map I can infer that the eastern side of the United States offers more job opportunity. I think this because there are many more people settling in the east than in the west. This could mean that in the future people from the west will move to the east for job opportunities.

How Does Globalization Affect Me?
Technology affects me every day when I log onto a computer or use my Iphone. I may see a video or read an article that I learn from or use. Environment affects me when I go outside to jog. For example, I would be influenced to not jog if it was raining. Culture affects me when I go on social media and talk with friends. We may talk about a popular song or youtube video. Economics affects me when my dad’s business does poorly. My dad is self employed which means if his company does poorly our family will be affected. I believe that in 15 years the cultural, economic, and technological aspects of globalization will be prominent in my life and people that are close to me. I do not think that the environmental aspect will be as prominent because I don’t think we will have much of an environment. The technological aspect of globalization will be especially prominent when new phones are made and new ways to communicate are created. The economic aspect could affect me by the government introducing new currency. Culture could affect me by a new type of music becoming popular. My children’s educational experience would involve innovations in technology that enhance the learning experience. These innovations could include 360 vision or holograms. I connect globally to create change.
