Does the life expectancy of a Chilean man depend on how many children his wife may have?
As tragedy ends, men live longer. Tragic events in a country will lower the amount of children. When people begin to discriminate less, fight less, and unify together, they live longer. I looked at and researched 1 country using the internet and a Gapminder graph. But, does this all tie in together. I’m going to explain some vital points in each data point.
I’m focusing on the South American country of Chile. The color green represents the South American continent. The graph is on a linear scale with the y axis as the life expectancy of a male and the x axis is the amount of babies per woman. The x decreases as the y increases. There is a negative correlation while the graph is on a linear scale. The Gapminder data is from the United Nations and the World Population Prospects. The bubbles are based on the population size. As the graph moves, it begins with a sharp left turn after 10 years and proceed up the Y - axis. At this time, the amount of children women are having is decreasing over time.
Chile was trying to transition into a democracy. In the late 80s through early 90s, they were trying desperately to become a united country. According to Freedomhouse.org, the people peacefully held protests, created unions and political parties. This led to a steady increase in Chilean male lives. Although, women were having less children due to many factors such as them not being respected as much as men or a growing obesity rate.
An article by the World Heart Federation (WHF) claimed that, “In Chile, a survey showed that obesity rose from 6 % to 11% in men and from 14% to 24% in women in just 4 years.” It also went on to connect obesity in Latin American women leading to dangerous cardiovascular diseases along with other risk factors of smoking and hypertension. The WHF also pointed out cardiovascular diseases as the leading cause of death in Latin America. Therefore, women die after being subject to these dangers. Although, the article also pointed out and said, “As we have mentioned above, this increase in obesity levels affect women more than men. Indeed, they tend to sacrifice their health for that of their family, surviving on unhealthy foods while trying to feed their families with better ones.”
According to some 2012-13 Gallup polls, 32% of Chilean women are likely to say they’re treated with respect. 60% of Chilean women answered no when asked if “they believe that women in their country were treated with respect and dignity” 61% of latin americans overall claimed that women aren’t treated with respect and dignity. This may have been a contributing factor to Chilean female obesity because an article by Drexel University hinted at signs of a Compulsive Eating disorder. It said that “They frequently suffer from low self-esteem and depression, hoping food will fill the void, or at least help them escape from feelings of stress, anxiety and anger. Compulsive Eating involves addictive behavior with food.”
In conclusion, I don’t think the life expectancy of a man relates to the amount of children his wife may have. I Although, countries will have their major events, it affects the population as a whole and nothing partially. It’s very difficult to separate the country's event problems from the whole population into gender specific categories. My question was sort of broad because of the extensive data I’d need in regards to fertility rates, male careers, and more.

Research and summarize updates about Standing Rock and Dakota Access Pipeline. Make use of social media to gather information.

#NoDapl, #StandingRock, #Waterislife, #NativeAmericans, #NorthDakotaPipeline #BoycottSunoco
How effective are these methods of action?
They’re helping people spread awareness of the situation. They don’t have to even leave their home to check in to Standing Rock. They won’t find who are actually at the protest to protect the protestesters.
What is environmental justice and role does social media play in fight environmental justice?
EJ is when every is treated fairly no matter their race, income, ethnicity, etc. Anybody is able to post on social media regardless of their backgrounds.
What do you think can improve the strategy?
The strategy can be improved by people actually creating barriers in their own cities. I mean that people should boycott companies that supported this project and show them how much of a negative impact their decisions can have.
Summarize and write your opinion to the article
This article was about how a major Norwegian bank is backing out its investment into the Dakota Access pipeline. ETP may also miss their deadline to have their pipeline finished in order for the oil companies to use it. Contracts will be lost. One of the barriers that is stopping the pipeline from being finished is the permit they need to drill through the Missouri River. If the deadline is up, oil companies may have to back out of the project. This article shows the positive outcome of activism. When something is wrong it has to be known by everyone. The Norwegian bank got into its senses realizing the evils that it invested its money into. When something is wrong people will find justice and the evil doers will lose. The ETP is paying for their poor decisions by not being able to finish their beloved pipeline.
Seeing as that a big shot foreign company just divested from DAPL, what would you like to tell the American people to do? How can the American people and government create an environmentally just America? Be specific and explain why your suggestion is helpful in creating a just society.
- American people need to rise up against their ignorance. There are too many people shrugging things off just because it may not be their problem and that is very selfish. I know that I used to be like that. But, my education has led me to care more about our world and future together as a human race. I’d like Americans to read the headlines in the least to inform themselves of what may be going on in our world and to think within themselves of how can I make a difference for tomorrow. The government and people may need to collaborate and think of guidelines we need to sustain in our everyday lives. We need to work together in order to reach our goal of environmental justice.

The person that passed away was my grandmother, Etta Williams.This person probably would’ve meant alot to me if I actually knew her. I don’t really have any memories with her.I wanted to make these objects of remembrance for her because of what people have told me about her and how she was a nice, loving person. I never actually did anything in honor of her life.It reflects her because the part over her eyes showed for her blindness and the puffs on her head represents her hair and hat I seen her with in pictures of her.It opened up my mind by making me want to have a little memorial party of dead relatives probably once every 2 years.
Me llamo Errion y Yo soy el nieta de mi abuela, Etta Williams. Ella es la madre de mi madre. Etta fue de St.Mary, Jamaica. Ella fue ciega con glaucoma. Mi abuela es muerto y enterrado. Yo estoy triste. Yo estoy en Filadelfia llevar a cabo ella legada. Yo te amo Ella.
I interviewed my grandmother, Phanseta Campbell. In my interview, My grandmother spoke dominantly of a man named Marcus Garvey. She talked on about how Garvey aimed to help the blacks and give them some insight on what they could do. He got into trouble for his actions. This includes the U.S. banning him from coming there. My grandmother also spoke briefly on some important political men that cared for the poor Jamaican citizens.
