  1. Is tourism a double edged sword?

    To begin with there are benefits of tourism for both the tourist and the host destination. On a large scale it offers a good alternative to some more destructive industries for generating income both on nationally and privately. The tourism industry encompasses many different areas, so it also creates jobs in many different areas. With tourism comes tour companies, hotels, car rental agencies, service stations, souvenir shops, different equipment rentals (sport equipment for example), and much more. All of this creates many different levels of employment for people in a given community.

  2. AIDS In Africa

    Developed Countries Perspective For years we have been warned of the tremendous African AIDS crisis. In 2000, vice president Al Gore took the issue to the United Nations security council (Haugen 34), stating that government must consider the epidemic a true threat to peace in Africa and make it a priority on the world?s security agenda. Gore noted, ?The United Nations was created to stop wars. How, we must wage and win a great and peaceful war of our time - the war against AIDS.? By stating that the war against AIDS in Africa is ?peaceful?, it is obvious that this viewpoint is coming from an individual in a developed nation.

  3. Helping the Street Children in Metropolitan Jakarta

    Whether measured by physical and mental development, health and survival rates, educational achievement or jobs, prospects, incomes or life expectancies, those who spend their childhood in poverty of income and expectation are at a marked and measurable disadvantage. Economic and political conditions often make getting an education ?impossible? for children. Families may require their kids to work so that they have enough money to survive or even sell their children for labor, sex, or adoption because money is too tight.

  4. The Geography of the Olympics

    The inclusion of 11?000 new homes in the Olympic park area will provide what Boris Johnson dubbed ?the most important urban regeneration project in the next 25 years.? It was perhaps most needed in this area of London as it had one of the lowest GDP?s in Britain with unemployment peaking at 20% after the demise of what were once the world?s largest docks. The area was very undesirable and often dubbed stinky Stratford because of the slaughterhouses and noxious industries that operated there.

  6. What exactly is an ageing population?

    Unequal distribution of the elderly ? e.g. Eastbourne has a high proportion of older people and may have inadequate facilities for young people as a consequence, such as bars and youth clubs. 3. Reduced population growth or population decline ? The working population may have fewer children as they already have older dependants, leading to a reduction in birth rate. 4. Longer working life- The state pension is low because there are so many retired people, so therefore some may have to work beyond normal retirement age to build up personal pensions or savings, or to add to their income from their state pension.

  7. Outline the factors influencing fertitlity rates

    The number of children per couple was limited to one and the marriage age was raised to 20 for women & 22 for men. Those who conformed to the rules got special benefits for their families. Exceptions were given to couples with a disabled child, rural couples with the first child being a girl and couples who are one of the 56 minorities in China (about 6%). This policy is said to have prevented 230 million children born in China, which would have had disastrous effects on China?s natural resources.

  8. What are the advantages and disadvantages of an ageing population? What are the advantages and disadvantages of a youthful population? (Use a least one LEDC and one MEDC case study).

    Increasingly care is provided in purpose-built accommodation (sheltered housing, retirement homes, etc) run by professional staff. Between 1985 and 1995 the number of people in homes for the elderly increased by over 10% and the number of hospice beds tripled. Elderly people need more than a home and meals, they have specific needs in terms if medical care, day centres, transport and leisure. Today nearly half of the government's expenditure on social service benefits is accounted by elderly people with now over 60's out numbering under 16's for the first time ever.
