Report on a current event from a sound scientific media outlet (USGS news or Science Mag, rather than CNN). Submit in WebCampus. Write 1 page and (single-spaced, 12-point Arial or Times New Roman font) responding to the following: Explain the current event and the geological aspects behind it. It will be easy to repeat the headlines of: event strength (quake magnitude), lives lost, and money spent BUT we want to know the science behind it! Explain that in your review.
Here’s what I’ll be looking for:
The science and mechanics behind the event using the terms from 1) lecture, 2) any assigned reading for that week posted in the module, and 3) online sources listed in the back of the syllabus
Some historical context (i.e. volcano along the Pacific coast of South America–Do they happen often there? If so, how do regular volcanoes impact people’s lives? What do they do to withstand regular eruptions?)
Small amount about how the local residents and global countries are involved and adapting to the disaster
stries. Such acts of exploitation put the citizens of Nigeria at the risk of exposure to poverty. Figure 4: Graph showing the increase in government spending Source: http://www.imf.org/external/country/ Despite the increase in the Nigerian government’s revenue, as seen above it is evident that the Nigerian government is spending more than it is making therefore leaving the government’s account balance in a deficit. Internal Conflicts At the moment, Nigeria is facing many internal issues such as terrorist organisations and tribalism. Nigeria consists of many ethnic groups with the two biggest ethnic groups in terms of population size and political power being, Hausas and Yorubas. Currently there are many economic conflicts between the two ethnic groups with regards to land ownership and political power. As a result of this many startups from each ethnic groups are often vandalised due to the intolerance the two ethnic groups have. Terrorist organisations such as Boko Haram slow down economic development as funds that should have been used to develop the country are being injected into fighting the terrorist organisation. Towns and villages attacked are often seized by these terrorist organisations and are run in accordance to the terrorist organisations demands, which hits business operations in seized places such as the Northern town of Chibok. Not only does it affect businesses but it also leads to a brain drain as many potential workers are fearful for their wellbeing. This creates a large diaspora of well educated Nigerians seeking jobs in other parts of the world as they are fearful of returning home. Having a large diaspora can be beneficial too as remittances are obtained as is the case with Nigeria. According to the World Bank 20.829 billion USD were sent back to Nigeria from nationals living abroad in 2014.>GET ANSWER
