A geopolitical community is defined by Maurer & Smith (2013) as "a spatial designation--a geographical or geopolitical area or place. Geopolitical communities are formed by either natural or human-made boundaries." Natural boundaries can be a lake, island, forest, hillside or plateau. An example of this is the village that both my parents were born in called Pettorano Sul Gizio in Italy which is surrounded by mountains, which separates it from the next village. The village is naturally divided by mountains all around as it sits nestled in a valley.

Date: April 8, 2014There are an abundance of similarities between Biblical passages and The Poem That Took the Place of a Mountain. The parallels drawn between the Creation Story in Genesis (chapters one to three), and the work by Wallace Stevens primarily concern language. By comparing the language used in the Jahwist (“J”) and Priestly (“P”) accounts of the Creation Story with the language in The Poem That Took the Place of a Mountain, one can conclude that Wallace Stevens intended for his work to mirror the Biblical text to produce his own version of a Creation story. Chapters 1-2:4 of Genesis are commonly referred to as the “P,” or Priestly, account of the Creation Story. In it, the origins of the world are told.
Explain why tectonic processes produce a variety of contrasting landscapes. (70 Marks) This report will outline how a variety of different landscapes and the general world topography is affected by tectonic processes. In order to do this, the report will give a range of evidence and case studies to support this theory of tectonic processes creating certain contrasting landscapes. The case studies this report intends to use are: * Fold Mountains – The Himalayas, Nepal * Oceanic Trench – Marianas Trench, Pacific Ocean * Oceanic Ridges – Mid – Atlantic Ridge, Atlantic Ocean * Tear Faults – San Andreas Fault, USA * Igneous Intrusions – Batholith, Devon and Cornwall UK * Igneous Intrusions – Sill, Great Whin Sill, UK What are plate tectonics? Plate tectonics was first suggested as a theory by the geologist Alfred Wegener in 1915 when he proposed the concept of continental drift.
Vanessa Figliomeni 998308987 March 23, 2012 The English longbow was a highly effective late medieval development of the Middle Ages. The English used the longbow as a significant weapon in terms of hunting and medieval warfare. There are many secondary sources related to the topic of the English longbow of the middles ages, two of which being Judge and Langdon's text entitled Connections: A World History, as well as an academic article written by Clifford J. Rogers entitled The Development of the Longbow in Late Medieval England and 'technological determinism’. Each of these secondary sources provides analysis on the topic, which, though both sources may speak of the same thing in general, they differ in various ways. The evidence provided by Judge and Langdon does not mainly focus on the Longbow itself.
The Sierra Nevada Mountains on the Pacific coast of North America and the Andes on the coast of South America were cited. Wegener also suggested that India drifted northward into the Asian continent thus forming the Himalayas. Many other scientist provided evidence toward this theory of a “continental jigsaw”, this evidence included geological matches in the rock type on two different continents coastlines found thousands of miles away e.g. Scotland and Canada and South America and Africa. Fossil evidence was also provided; trilobites of the same species found in Canada and Scotland and also, coal deposits were located in Antarctica.
These species are called mixed mesophytic, Appalachian Oak, Hemlock-white pine-northern hardwoods, oak hickory, maple-basswood, beech-maple, oak-pine, white oak, and southern pine. Mixed mesophytic forest region is one of the oldest regions of the biome and it’s the most complex and most highly developed. They are located west of the Appalachian Mountains on the southeastern part of the United States. Almost all type of their species are found in this region and is thought to be the center of spreading from one forest to another. Even though these areas are quite enormous and have over 30 different types of species, the area have only two or three species that
Cultural Analysis of Peru Peru is a Country in central South America bounded on the north by Ecuador and Colombia, on the east by Brazil and Bolivia, on the south by Chile, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. The climate of Peru varies widely, ranging from tropical in the mountain to arctic in the highest mountains of the Andes. Average temperature decrease about 1.7 Celsius (about 7 Fahrenheit degrees) the peaks are permanently covered by snow and ice. The area of Peru, including several offshore islands, is 1,285,216 sq km (496,225 sq mi), making it third in size (after Brazil and Argentina) of South America countries.
