Is this a humid climate (precipitation exceeds evaporation during the course of the year) or a dry climate (evaporation exceeds precipitation during the course of the year)? How do you know this?
If this place is located at high elevation? How do you know it is or is not?
In what ways is the climate of this place significantly different from that of Farmington, Connecticut (classified as humid continental)?
Why does the majority of precipitation that falls in this location occur from October through March, and why does less fall from April through September?
Regarding natural vegetation, what would you expect to find growing here, and why?
This place occupies a continental location, far from any sea or ocean. How does its location help explain the temperature and precipitation patterns depicted on the climagraph?
For this assignment, you will create a map using the free online software called ArcGIS Online StoryMap. You do NOT need ANY prior mapping experience to complete this project. The goal of this assignment is to pick a geographical theme pertaining to a natural or societal characteristic or pattern and map the distribution of that characteristic or pattern across the world. You can choose any theme that fits the assignment requirements; below are some suggestions.

Worth20 points.(1) Since we know human beings are urbanizing exponentially, faster than ever in humanhistory, intelligent urban planning is critical. What do you think a city should be? How wouldyou make the inhabitants happy and feel included in the development of the city? In otherwords, you are designing your own city on the scale of 10 million people, what would youinclude? Who would live there? What would housing look like? Public transportation or no?Walkable? Sustainable? Industry? Green spaces? Do outside research for this question.(2) Prior, to watching this film did you know anything about Jane Jacobs or Robert Moses? If so,what did you know? What is it that these two figures are struggling for in relationship to thecity?(3) Who is Jane Jacobs? How would you describe her approach to cities?

(ie topdown v bottom up, people v automobile, diversity v homogeneity, public v private realm, creativity v sterility, experts v. lived experience). Have fun with this!
I need help with my Geography project. I will attach the guidelines along with examples; I had used El Salvador as my example. I just need a specific place that shows the coordinate points. I will attach my previous example.
Overview: To complete this milestone activity, you will continue to imagine that you are relocating from your current location to a new region of the globe, but now you will narrow your focus to a particular city or area of a country within the new region that you have selected. See the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric document for detailed information about this scenario. These responses will be basis for the speaker notes that you will use while you present your final presentation. You will also submit a draft of your final project presentation slides, including resources on the last slide, in this milestone.
Prompt: For this assignment, complete the following steps:
1.Review the Milestone Two Rubric at the end of this worksheet.
2.Download this document and complete the worksheet below, addressing questions related to the location, region significance, global significance, interactions, and movement of your new city or area within your new region.
3.For your draft of the final project presentation slides, you should include a slide (or slides) that address each element of the final project presentation requirements and include a draft transcript of your speaker notes. It is important that your presentation and speaker notes are organized in such a manner that between the two, it is clear to your instructor that you have sufficiently covered each element required for the final project. Your last presentation slide should be a reference list of at least five sources that support your final project using current APA style guidelines. Remember that this assignment will include, in addition to the Worksheet, your draft PowerPoint (or Prezi) file, a draft Word File with the Speaker Notes that aligned with each other (notes are clearly labeled per slide in bold font).
Tip: Consider copying your speaker notes into your presentation where appropriate, so that you can view the interplay between any images, bullets, or titles you are using and cue yourself to the speaker notes, which are the core of how you are graded. Do not forget to include the speaker notes you have from Milestone One, upon which you received feedback from your instructor.
4.Once you have completed the worksheet, upload your saved worksheet file along with a draft of your final project speaker notes, and presentation slides, then submit this milestone assignment.
Note: Refer to your module resources and the Themes of Geography resource, as well as additional resources you identify, for information to help you answer the questions below. Remember that you will need to have at least five sources in current APA style for your citations and references list in the final project submission. Note that each question of your worksheet has you track your citations. This is so you will not need to go back and figure out where you grabbed a resource from when you submit your final slides. You will be able to use these worksheets to copy and paste your citation list into your last slide. In some instances, you may have used the same resource more than once, which is why your list may be as small as five resources.
Before starting this activity, review the following documents, Milestone Two Speaker Notes Student Example, GEO 200 Milestone Two Worksheet Student Example, and Milestone Two Slides Student Example within the Student Example Folder.

“The big Secrets”
The documentary I watched on YouTube is called “The Big Secret.” The documentary follows Dr. Michael Mosley, a neuroscientist, as he sets out on a mission to unravel the secrets of his DNA. He wants to learn why he is so susceptible to certain illnesses and how to stop them from ruining his life. The movie also examines how genetics affect our health and how oncologists treat cancer patients using genetics.
The Big Secret is a documentary that explores the connection between our bodies and minds and how food affects both (The Big Secret, n.d). Furthermore, the articles in class supports the film. In addition, the film examines the advantages of a plant-based diet, such as weight loss, enhanced mental health, and increased longevity. In fact, according to some professionals, studies have shown that adopting a vegan diet can help with memory and brain function. However, eating a plant-based diet has some disadvantages as well. For instance, going vegan may cause lower levels of iron and vitamin B12 due to insufficient consumption of meat or fish. Additionally, to make sure they are getting enough calcium and iron, vegans may need to take supplements.
The Big Secret was an excellent documentary, in my opinion. I found it to be well-researched and educational, and I felt that it gave me a perfect opportunity to reflect on a subject that had been on my mind for some time but hadn’t received much public attention. By demonstrating to viewers that many people share the same condition, the Big Secret documentary may be able to assist them. Seeing how many other people are experiencing the same thing may also inspire those suffering to get assistance and recover.
