The first location in Miami preformed above recent expectations even in a market where the average consumer is more price conscious (Sutherland). This expansion and success in America can help Earls Richmond by giving the foreign consumer a brand they can identify and trust. Being located inside the Lansdowne mall can be a blessing for Earls. Lansdowne sky train station is located around 600 meters away from Earls Richmond and provides one of the main staples of public transportation for Richmond. Being so close to the skytrain station allows Earls to have a competitive advantage over some of the other restaurants in the area.
One environmental factor that contributed to the development of the United States is the large areas fertile land in a temperate climate (http://makewealthhistory.org). The United States has large amounts of fertile land which lead to a basis for an agricultural economy when it was first settled. The climate is never too hot or too cold as to limit the workable hours in the day. The climate in the fertile lands also has a longer growing season then an area that is extremely hot most of the time. So when the United States was first colonized it the growing season and fertile land made the economy flourish.
After watching the Guns, Germs and Steel series about why the europeans conquer the world. I would agree with Jared Diamond and his explanation of how the Europeans were able to conquer an take over world. Throughout the series Jared points out many great ideas on how the Europeans were so successful in their journeys. Europeans greatest strength was their geographical location which brought them the most productive crops and animals on the planet. Jared says, "People around the world who had access to the most productive crops becomes the most productive farmers".
Residents of New Orleans have been urged to leave the city, but its evacuation routes were so congested, the authorities acknowledge that hundreds of thousands of residents would not get out in time. Leslie Phillips January 31, 2006 stated from the government’s point of view, “in the days leading up to Katrina’s landfall, 85 percent of the city evacuated successfully the 85 percent that were ambulatory and had, found, or could afford transportation, and had a place to stay. That is the one bright spot in this tale. However, many of the city’s most vulnerable populations – the poor, the sick, and the aged – were left behind. The city opened the Superdome as a refuge of last resort, but the Dome was ill equipped to accommodate the tens of thousands who would flock there in desperation to escape the rising floodwaters.

Florida, or otherwise known as 'the sunshine state' is a very popular area with all the things imaginable that people would find enjoyable. Coastal population started increasing very rapidly in the 1960s and 1980s, making Florida the popular coastal zone that it is now. Florida is very subject to coastalisation due to the fact 75% of Florida's population lives along the coastline, and its tropical climate of hot temperatures all year round make it an attractive place to live and visit. Florida is also a peninsula so this means wherever you are, you're near a beach in Florida. There are endless things to do in Florida which attracts people to live there, such as Everglades national park, the range of wildlife you can see such as dolphins,
because of the dependency on the product (doc. 5). Sugar also had a very addictive quality and the more it was consumed the more it was wanted which further drove the trade(doc 3). The consumer demand for sugar and the slave labor the sugar trade create a flourishing capital. The Caribbean islands were a great place for sugar to be produced because of the warm climates, rainfall, latitude, and soil composition (doc.
Ecotourism Concerns Tyler Gunderstreet San Francisco State University Here in the United States, we wouldn’t really think of tourism as a major dictator of our economy. Some might not even realize that tourism is an actual industry or consider it an industry of its own. Although for the countries that we’ve read about, being Kenya, Zanzibar, South Africa, and The Galapagos, tourism affects the lives of everyone in these countries day in and day out. Tourism itself can have substantial environmental, economic, and socio-cultural impacts on a country. Ecotourism on the other hand, which is being implemented by the foresaid nations, attempts to take advantage of the powerful tourism industry while being conscious of how it can negatively affect their environment.
They are born from tropic waters that affect quite a few across the world but in the Gulf of Mexico they tend to wreak particular havoc. These storms have potential for mass devastation through storm surges that flood the coastline often taking lives and possible contamination of water supplies, heavy rain which contributes to flooding situations and high winds coupling with tornadoes that destroy property, Storm surges are among one of the worst factors of a hurricane. Often, at the time, people do not even realize the impacts a storm surge can have and do not head authorities warnings to evacuate the coastline, which can result in a high death toll. As Jay Barnes notes in his research: As a hurricane churns across the open sea, the combined effects of the storm’s lowered barometric pressure and strong, inward-spiraling winds create a deep, swirling column of water beneath the ocean’s surface. This effect causes the sea level to rise in the vicinity of the storm, creating a dome of water that may be a few feet high in the center and a hundred miles wide.
Paris was chosen for the location of EuroDisney over 200 other sites because the French government had offered incentives to the company, along with the demographic data available showing Paris to be Europe’s most visited city by tourists. Tourists were braving the cold and wind in Tokyo to visit Disneyland, so the climate of northern France did not trouble the company when choosing this site. During the first year, the Walt Disney Company believed the park would draw 11 million tourists and generate $100 million, but by 1994 Disney had only had 9.2 million visitors in two years and had lost more than $900 million. European tourists were taking advantage of battling transatlantic air carriers and were choosing to go to Disneyworld in Orlando, because it was cheaper than EuroDisney and the location promised better weather and Florida beaches. Disney had believed that if they built a large, glamorous park in the style of American parks, the European tourists would flock to it to get their slice of American culture.
