Overview History of health geography Areas of study Geographies of disease and ill health. Geography of health care provision. Mobility and Disease Tracking. Health geographers See also References External links. The study of health geography has been influenced by re positioning of medical geography within the field of social geography due to a shift from a medical model to a social model in healthcare, which advocates for the redefinition of health and health care away from prevention and treatment of illness only to one of promoting well-being in general. Under this model, some previous illnesses e.g., mental ill health are recognized as behavior disturbances only, and other types of medicine e.g., complementary or alternative medicine and traditional medicine are studied by the medicine researchers, sometimes with the aid of healt...

Oakland Tribune Posted: 10/07/2012 04:27:40 PM PDT Updated: 10/08/2012 03:57:04 AM PDT. Shyanne Reese prefers to call herself a "conqueror" rather than a survivor of breast cancer. She revels in her personal triumph, defeating the foe that threatened her life in 2008, and is now moving forward with poise and purpose. However, Reese didn't always feel so confident. In fact, as an African-American, she says cultural myths long held her back from seeking treatment or even giving herself breast exams.

*  .. Is this true? Komen claims 30% drop in BC mortality rates .. Truth #5: Breast cancer mortality
Is this true. Komen claims 30% drop in BC mortality rates by Ginny Knackmuhs, MBCN Vice President. Recent commercials for the Komen 3 day walk make this claim: a 30% drop in breast cancer mortality rates since the early 90’s due to early detection. Is this true. According to Wikipedia, mortality rate is a measure of the number of deaths in a population, scaled to the size of that population, per unit of time. Mortality rate is typically expressed in units of deaths per 1000 individuals per year. So a breast cancer mortality rate of 31.6 in 1992, for example, means there were approximately 31 deaths for every 1000 individuals living with breast cancer at that time. Statistics can be very confusing. When I first saw this claim of a 30% drop in mortality back in 2011, I was shocked and sure that Komen was wrong. Did this mean that 30% fewer people were dying from breast cancer. That sounded too optimistic. I wrote to my friend who has a masters in applied math and economics and she enlightened me: The mortality...

Witchcraft was outlawed in England in 1563 and a Witchcraft Act was passed in 1604.

The Nursery Rhyme See a Pin and Pick it up is a poem about common household items. We take such necessary articles for granted but they have some interesting history attached to them. Pins and 'Pin Money' Pins have been used for hundreds of years. There was a Guild of Pinmakers, or Pinners.

Folktales Animal Stories Children's Stories Family Stories Funny Stories Nursery Rhymes Weatherlore. By the time the settlers reached Oregon, the few goods they had were precious indeed. They passed it from family to family, and for two or three days at a time, the women in each family would sew and darn as quickly as they could before passing the needle on to the next household. Then one day, little Jimmy Chitwood was assigned the task of carrying the needle to Grandmother Drain's cottage over the hillside. Then she stuck it into a potato and gave the precious needle to her small son. He'd lost the potato with the precious darning needle stuck into it. Soon the whole village turned out to look for the potato with the darning needle stuck into it. With s...

Stewart, Pamela J., and Andrew Strathern. 'Witchcraft, Sorcery, Rumors and Gossip.' Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2004; p. In Hausa belief, the desire and capacity for the practice, termed 'maita,' is rooted in special stones kept in a person's stomach.

Britain's most popular nursery rhymes, recited by generations of parents to their children, are teeming with references to bed-hopping royals and teenage sex, according to a book on the origins of 24 playground ditties. While Jack and Jill may seem innocuous enough in their attempt to fetch water, they are in fact preoccupied with losing their virginity, says Chris Roberts, a social historian who has traced the adult stories behind the nursery rhymes. Instead of his head, Jack has a different part of his anatomy patched up with vinegar and brown p...

Buda folklore. Buda folklore. 'Buda' or 'bouda', in Ethiopia n folk religion, is the power of the evil eye and the ability to change into a hyena. Buda is generally believed to be a power held and wielded by those in a different social group, for example among the Beta Israel or metalworkers. Finneran, Niall. " " 'Folklore', Vol. 'For Our Soul: Ethiopian Jews in Israel'. Press, 1993. The belief is also present in Sudan, Tanzania, and among the Berber people in Morocco. 1 Belief in the evil eye, or buda, is widespread in Ethiopia. The Beta Israel, or Ethiopian Jews, are often characterized by others as possessing buda. The alleged evil power of the tabib is believed to be at a level similar to that of witches. As such, those allegedly possessing the power of buda might do so because of malevolent spirits. One study specifies that they are believed to be "empowered by evil spirit". Ethiopian Orthodox priests continue to intervene and perform exorcisms on behalf of those believed to be afflicted by demons or b...

The teens around the area call it stone road for many reasons. Some teens go there to get drunk or stoned, and the now paved road used to be rocks and gravel. But that doesn't change what happens there. There is a story about the bridge there, that is only told at night, when teens gather in a car there on the bridge, leaving the engine on. Whatever the story is, the car ends up stallling on the bridge by itself, and a ring of fog will appear around the car. Sometimes, if a window is down, you can hear a ghostly voice calling your...

*  Folklore of Lancashire
... Lancashire, like all other counties of England, has historically had its own peculiar superstition s, manners, and customs, which may or may not find parallels in those of other localities. The following list of 'folklore of Lancashire' was collected in 1851 by one Tattersall Wilkinson of Burnley. If a person's hair, when thrown into the fire, burns brightly, it is a sure sign that the individual will live long. A young person frequently stirs the fire with the poker to test the humour of a lover. If the fire blaze brightly, the lover is good-humoured; and vice versa. If a person's left ear burns, or feels hot, somebody is praising the party; if the right ear burns, then it is a sure sign that some one is speaking evil of the person. If a bag containing as many small pebbles as a person has warts, be tossed over the left shoulder, it will transfer the warts to whoever is unfortunate enough to pick up the bag. If black snails are seized by the horn and tossed over the left shoulder, the process will insur...

*  Helhest
... In Danish folklore, a 'helhest' Danish " Hel horse " is a three-legged horse associated with Hel. Various Danish phrases are recorded that refer to the horse. The Helhest is associated with death and illness, and it is mentioned in folklore as having been spotted in various locations in Denmark. Folklore See also Notes References. Folklore. The horse figures into a number of Danish phrases as recent as the 19th century, such as "'han går som en helhest'" "he walks like a hel-horse" for a male who "blunders in noisily". The helhest is sometimes described as going "around the churchyard on his three legs, he fetches Death", and from Schleswig, a phrase is recorded that, in time of plague, "die corrected by Grimm from 'der' Hel rides about on a three-legged horse, destroying men". 19th century scholar Benjamin Thorpe connects the Danish phrase "he gave death a pack of oats" when an individual survives a near-fatal disease to notions of the Helhest, considering the oats either an offering or a bribe.

Chris's Wiki :: blog/unix/TheLegendOfSync. Chris Siebenmann :: CSpace. blog. unix TheLegendOfSync Welcome, guest. Unix folklore: using multiple sync commands December 28, 2005. There is persistent bit of folklore in the Unix world that you should do several sync commands before shutting down or rebooting a Unix machine. Even today, you'll see a lot of people following this folklore, generally using ' sync; sync; sync '. People who do this irritate me, because they are doing it wrong and in a way that makes the whole folklore ineffectual. The sync folklore dates from the very old days when Unix was primitive and two things were true. First, the sync system call that the sync program uses just queued dirty buffers to be flushed and didn't guarantee that they had been writing to disk. Second, the kernel itself didn't force all buffers to be written to disk as part of the shutdown or reboot process. In this sort of old Unix environment, you needed to sync by hand before rebooting the system to get all the dir...

In Jennifer Diski s recent review of CUFOS board member Thomas Bullard s The Myth and Mystery of UFOs, she notes how stories of underground worlds, parallel to our own, have comforted and terrified us for centuries not just UFOs, but ghosts, giants, Jesus: anything unusual is available as an article of faith; sign, signal, and evidence. To read 2011 through its pop music is to track just such a narrative, a Dreamland -ish plate carrée of fantastic traversals joining grids of lewd, weird material.

In a black metal direction, at least, this isn't attempting anything especially novel, and fails to excel at what it does attempt.

(1/6654) Using physical-chemistry-based substitution models in phylogenetic analyses of HIV-1 subtypes.

HIV-1 subtype phylogeny is investigated using a previously developed computational model of natural amino acid site substitutions. This model, based on Boltzmann statistics and Metropolis kinetics, involves an order of magnitude fewer adjustable parameters than traditional substitution matrices and deals more effectively with the issue of protein site heterogeneity. When optimized for sequences of HIV-1 envelope (env) proteins from a few specific subtypes, our model is more likely to describe the evolutionary record for other subtypes than are methods using a single substitution matrix, even a matrix optimized over the same data. Pairwise distances are calculated between various probabilistic ancestral subtype sequences, and a distance matrix approach is used to find the optimal phylogenetic tree. Our results indicate that the relationships between subtypes B, C, and D and those between subtypes A and H may be closer than previously thought.  (+info)

(2/6654) Prehistoric birds from New Ireland, Papua New Guinea: extinctions on a large Melanesian island.

At least 50 species of birds are represented in 241 bird bones from five late Pleistocene and Holocene archaeological sites on New Ireland (Bismarck Archipelago, Papua New Guinea). The bones include only two of seabirds and none of migrant shorebirds or introduced species. Of the 50 species, at least 12 (petrel, hawk, megapode, quail, four rails, cockatoo, two owls, and crow) are not part of the current avifauna and have not been recorded previously from New Ireland. Larger samples of bones undoubtedly would indicate more extirpated species and refine the chronology of extinction. Humans have lived on New Ireland for ca. 35,000 years, whereas most of the identified bones are 15,000 to 6,000 years old. It is suspected that most or all of New Ireland's avian extinction was anthropogenic, but this suspicion remains undetermined. Our data show that significant prehistoric losses of birds, which are well documented on Pacific islands more remote than New Ireland, occurred also on large, high, mostly forested islands close to New Guinea.  (+info)

(3/6654) Ancestral origins and worldwide distribution of the PRNP 200K mutation causing familial Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) belongs to a group of prion diseases that may be infectious, sporadic, or hereditary. The 200K point mutation in the PRNP gene is the most frequent cause of hereditary CJD, accounting for >70% of families with CJD worldwide. Prevalence of the 200K variant of familial CJD is especially high in Slovakia, Chile, and Italy, and among populations of Libyan and Tunisian Jews. To study ancestral origins of the 200K mutation-associated chromosomes, we selected microsatellite markers flanking the PRNP gene on chromosome 20p12-pter and an intragenic single-nucleotide polymorphism at the PRNP codon 129. Haplotypes were constructed for 62 CJD families originating from 11 world populations. The results show that Libyan, Tunisian, Italian, Chilean, and Spanish families share a major haplotype, suggesting that the 200K mutation may have originated from a single mutational event, perhaps in Spain, and spread to all these populations with Sephardic migrants expelled from Spain in the Middle Ages. Slovakian families and a family of Polish origin show another unique haplotype. The haplotypes in families from Germany, Sicily, Austria, and Japan are different from the Mediterranean or eastern European haplotypes. On the basis of this study, we conclude that founder effect and independent mutational events are responsible for the current geographic distribution of hereditary CJD associated with the 200K mutation.  (+info)

(4/6654) mtDNA analysis of Nile River Valley populations: A genetic corridor or a barrier to migration?

To assess the extent to which the Nile River Valley has been a corridor for human migrations between Egypt and sub-Saharan Africa, we analyzed mtDNA variation in 224 individuals from various locations along the river. Sequences of the first hypervariable segment (HV1) of the mtDNA control region and a polymorphic HpaI site at position 3592 allowed us to designate each mtDNA as being of "northern" or "southern" affiliation. Proportions of northern and southern mtDNA differed significantly between Egypt, Nubia, and the southern Sudan. At slowly evolving sites within HV1, northern-mtDNA diversity was highest in Egypt and lowest in the southern Sudan, and southern-mtDNA diversity was highest in the southern Sudan and lowest in Egypt, indicating that migrations had occurred bidirectionally along the Nile River Valley. Egypt and Nubia have low and similar amounts of divergence for both mtDNA types, which is consistent with historical evidence for long-term interactions between Egypt and Nubia. Spatial autocorrelation analysis demonstrates a smooth gradient of decreasing genetic similarity of mtDNA types as geographic distance between sampling localities increases, strongly suggesting gene flow along the Nile, with no evident barriers. We conclude that these migrations probably occurred within the past few hundred to few thousand years and that the migration from north to south was either earlier or lesser in the extent of gene flow than the migration from south to north.  (+info)

(5/6654) Distribution of haplotypes from a chromosome 21 region distinguishes multiple prehistoric human migrations.

Despite mounting genetic evidence implicating a recent origin of modern humans, the elucidation of early migratory gene-flow episodes remains incomplete. Geographic distribution of haplotypes may show traces of ancestral migrations. However, such evolutionary signatures can be erased easily by recombination and mutational perturbations. A 565-bp chromosome 21 region near the MX1 gene, which contains nine sites frequently polymorphic in human populations, has been found. It is unaffected by recombination and recurrent mutation and thus reflects only migratory history, genetic drift, and possibly selection. Geographic distribution of contemporary haplotypes implies distinctive prehistoric human migrations: one to Oceania, one to Asia and subsequently to America, and a third one predominantly to Europe. The findings with chromosome 21 are confirmed by independent evidence from a Y chromosome phylogeny. Loci of this type will help to decipher the evolutionary history of modern humans.  (+info)

(6/6654) High recombination rate in natural populations of Plasmodium falciparum.

Malaria parasites are sexually reproducing protozoa, although the extent of effective meiotic recombination in natural populations has been debated. If meiotic recombination occurs frequently, compared with point mutation and mitotic rearrangement, linkage disequilibrium between polymorphic sites is expected to decline with increasing distance along a chromosome. The rate of this decline should be proportional to the effective meiotic recombination rate in the population. Multiple polymorphic sites covering a 5-kb region of chromosome 9 (the msp1 gene) have been typed in 547 isolates from six populations in Africa to test for such a decline and estimate its rate in populations of Plasmodium falciparum. The magnitude of two-site linkage disequilibrium declines markedly with increasing molecular map distance between the sites, reaching nonsignificant levels within a map range of 0.3-1.0 kb in five of the populations and over a larger map distance in the population with lowest malaria endemicity. The rate of decline in linkage disequilibrium over molecular map distance is at least as rapid as that observed in most chromosomal regions of other sexually reproducing eukaryotes, such as humans and Drosophila. These results are consistent with the effective recombination rate expected in natural populations of P. falciparum, predicted on the basis of the underlying molecular rate of meiotic crossover and the coefficient of inbreeding caused by self-fertilization events. This is conclusive evidence to reject any hypothesis of clonality or low rate of meiotic recombination in P. falciparum populations. Moreover, the data have major implications for the design and interpretation of population genetic studies of selection on P. falciparum genes.  (+info)

(7/6654) The modulation of DNA content: proximate causes and ultimate consequences.

The forces responsible for modulating the large-scale features of the genome remain one of the most difficult issues confronting evolutionary biology. Although diversity in chromosomal architecture, nucleotide composition, and genome size has been well documented, there is little understanding of either the evolutionary origins or impact of much of this variation. The 80,000-fold divergence in genome sizes among eukaryotes represents perhaps the greatest challenge for genomic holists. Although some researchers continue to characterize much variation in genome size as a mere by-product of an intragenomic selfish DNA "free-for-all" there is increasing evidence for the primacy of selection in molding genome sizes via impacts on cell size and division rates. Moreover, processes inducing quantum or doubling series variation in gametic or somatic genome sizes are common. These abrupt shifts have broad effects on phenotypic attributes at both cellular and organismal levels and may play an important role in explaining episodes of rapid-or even saltational-character state evolution.  (+info)

(8/6654) Identification of a distinct common strain of "Norwalk-like viruses" having a global distribution.

"Norwalk-like viruses" (NLVs) are the most common cause of outbreaks of nonbacterial gastroenteritis. During molecular surveillance of NLV strains from 152 outbreaks of gastroenteritis that occurred in the US between August 1993 and July 1997, we identified an NLV strain that predominated during the 1995-1996 season. The "95/96-US" strain caused 60 outbreaks in geographically distant locations within the US and was identified, by sequence comparisons, in an additional 7 countries on 5 continents during the same period. This is the first demonstration linking a single NLV strain globally and suggests that the circulation of these strains might involve patterns of transmission not previously considered. The diagnostic techniques are now available to establish a global network for surveillance of NLV strains that would highlight the importance of NLVs worldwide and allow molecular identification of common strains having a global distribution so as to consider interventions for their control.  (+info)


Geography?


I need to know anything you know at all about the Pakistan earthquake on 2005.
I would be really grateful because i need info 4 my geography project.
Thank u all !
----------

Do you think that maybe you should research this on your own - you will learn more that way - not only how to do research, but you will learn about your topic.

To use a search engine - yahoo, google, whatever search you choose to use - type in just what you did above - Pakistan earthquake and see what your results are.


How has the geography and climate influenced the foods prepared in Italy?


How has the geography and climate influenced the foods prepared in Italy? Has the climate made a difference in Italian food?
----------

This is a HUGE question to answer... one could write a book on it.

If you leave out geography playing a role in who conquered what parts of the country at what times, that does make it a slightly less lengthy topic. 

For example, in Veneto, they use spices much more than in other parts of Italy because geographically, Venice was a convenient port. Since there was a lot of trading done, they had access to a lot of spices.

Also, because of the gradually sloping hills in Parma, the consistent dry breeze made it an ideal location for curing and aging pork products in preparations such as Prosciutto di Parma.

In the south of Italy, it is very warm. As a result, they perfected their techniques for drying pasta and preserving it rather than making a batch of fresh pasta when it was needed. 

This barely scratches the surface... there are thousands and thousands of directions in which this topic could be taken.


How important of a role does geography play in raising kids?


Does where you live have a major impact in who your children become? I mean city versus suburb or country life. Obviously a child growing up in a big city like Chicago is going to be more likely to encounter gangs versus a child growing up in rural Idaho for example. And a child growing up in the country or on a farm is probably more likely to have seen a live chicken than a child growing up in Beverly Hills. So how important is geography when it comes to who your child becomes? Does it change the morals and personality of a child?
----------

This is a variant of nature vs nurture.

Every variable plays a role in raising a child.  Not only is it city vs country, rural vs urban, but within those ranges the economic status as well as the ethnicity and/or religion makes major differences.

For a wealthy family living in the countryside, life is much different than for a lower or middle class family and the types of activities available to children are different.   This area where I live has very rich people living in close proximity to those below the poverty level.  Stables, riding your own horse, having four wheelers, a boat and every sort of water toy for the lake, vs cleaning someone else stables and mowing lawns to save enough to rent a boat on the weekend make for major differences in child rearing. 

Of course then there are the majority, living somewhere in the middle..and lower middle class is more or less where my own family resides.

IMHO, the most important variables are the members of the family, the values and ethics they display within their family to one another and whether or not every family member sees themselves as a valuable and contributing member.

Rich city kids and rich country kids have a tougher time with being spoiled to the technology and expensive toys that make it harder to learn how to become an independent and well-adjusted person IMHO.  

At the other end of the spectrum, the poor urban and poor rural kid, often face similar risks and barriers, too.  There are gangs even in communities with as few as 35,000 people.  Rural areas have meth labs in mobile homes rather than in urban apartment buildings.  A meth lab in the woods blew up less than two miles from my home.  

MzRahi spoke of being a minority.  It's hard to stereotype even rural areas.  Some rural areas are warm and welcoming and people appear to accept differences in stride.  Other areas are narrow and bigoted.  Sometimes these communities can be 30 miles apart from one another.  

For example, my son as the only Jewish boy in his grade for five years  in a school with a population of close to 400 students per grade, is well adjusted and has many friends, almost all of them Southern Baptist  and he is only occasionally the target of playground missionaries.   The school district is clearly overrun with fundamentalist Christians whose bumper stickers show the "Truth" fish eating the Darwin fish, say "Restore Prayer in School" despite the fact that they have Christian prayer meetings around the flag pole every day and every PTA meeting or function opens with Christian prayers.  I've had to risk being ostracized several times to speak out against outright open proselytization in the classroom and some teachers giving biased and incorrect information about Jews and Judaism.  Yet, it is so much better where my son is, that a family who was living 30 miles from here now sends their children to school in our district because of extreme bigotry even by the school district and administration there.   

Geography is going to affect child rearing in direct relationship to how the geography affects living, period. 
Lifestyles and culture are different in every geographic area.  

Where a parent is comfortable is going to affect child rearing.

I do not do well being in a crowded city.  Even large “towns” make me feel claustophobic with too much concrete, traffic and noise.  I would not be the same kind of parent.  I’m sure my discomfort of being in a city would translate in some manner to my child.  On the other hand, I am also very disturbed to see that in the past couple of years, more of the countryside surrounding my home has been destroyed than in the previous 30 years combined.  I’m getting depressed about this.  What used to be a peaceful and relaxing drive home from town now makes me want to cry.

I know this affects my parenting too.  I’ve worked hard to raise my son to respect and work to living with a balance..and he still gets to see wildlife in his front yard,…actually much much more now that their homes are disappearing.  However, some species that I once saw with regularity I haven’t seen in a year now.  

Far too many city folk are moving to the countryside and trying to turn it into strip-mall suburbia and bring with them every problem they claim they wanted to avoid.  The first thing they do is cut down all the native trees and turn their plots of forest into manicured golf course looking toxic pesticide and fertilizer housing developments with non-native flowering ornamental shrubs and trees (I've grown SICK of seeing beautiful oak/hickory forests with native ferns and flowers be replaced with the "Bradford Pear" and lombardy poplar, red tip photinia, crepe myrtles, Japanese Maple and other fast growing trash trees) and then let their dogs and cats run loose to "be free".  Yet, they're there to raise their children in a "country" lifestyle!

When you get down to it…every choice we make can affect parenting for benefit or harm.  No parent is perfect and no matter how hard we try not to make the same mistakes our own parents made, we ARE going to make a whole set of mistakes for our own kids to use as examples they don’t want to make with their own.

Hope some of my rambling has helped.

edit: Even the most rural areas now are not immune to pollution!  Often toxic producing factories are nestled in rural areas where they pollute "unnoticed", and a major source of cancer in the south was the indiscriminate use of pesticides..AGENT ORANGE type herbicides among them by our very own U.S Forest Service in the 60s- 80s whose effects are still with us.  The National Forests in the south have been managed as pine tree plantations in many areas and like the private companies, they use herbicides to kill off competing native hardwoods.

also private companies like Weyerhauser still dropped chemicals on their pine tree plantations they call forests...herbicides..that kill off competing species of trees and this makes its way into the water.  Huge chicken farms (Tyson) have their run off contaminating wells..

Rural people often have an even greater challenge to avoid pollution and toxicity anymore.  That myth needs to go as the myth itself often makes it harder for rural people to prevent or repair damage done by offenders, especially when we're talking about taking on the U.S. Forest Service itself.


How did the geography of France affect it's cooking styles?


I am doing a school report on France and I'm trying to make a cook book. One of the requirements is that I have to show how the cooking styles were affected by it's geography. If no one knows how it was affected by the geography then could you tell me a good place to get info on the subject.
----------

geography affected cooking in all places.  the people cooked what they could get easily and was abundant.  closer to water ate fish and other seafood.  inland ate other types of meat.


How does Germany's geography, climate, culture and religion affect the food produced?


I know a ton of info on the geography, climate, culture and religion, but how does it affect the food?
----------

Germany's cold winters and short summers led to many hearty dishes of pork, gravies, breads, potatoes, dumplings, sausages and their beloved "Senf" (mustard-hundreds of varieties of it).

But modern Germany's food transcends her place on the map and her climate, as she has the most cosmopolitan restaurants and most ingenious cooks, followed closely by the Austrians, in all of Europe.


I need study tips for Geography Test on Canada?


I have to remember the appearance, formation process and uses of landforms and regions of Canada.

Study tips?

I have very good memory tricks but any study tips will be appreciated.
----------

ha, i just understood what you were asking. so im editing my answer lol 

-find an area that is ur designated study spot.
-get some veggies and stuff to keep you awake and not hungry. (plus this way your not munching on chips and other junk food)
-have a good energy drink.
-chew on coffee beans
-turn away from all distractions
-take a break every half hour that way you can refresh your mind and then review what you just learned
-dont stress to hard (the more you stress the more freaked out you get)
-NEVER study on the day of the test, you will forget everything. <
good luck girlie! :)

How has the geography and climate influenced the foods prepared in France?


Need for a cooking project (:
----------

No the cream isnt lighter.
The geography and climate has a high influence in the french culinary history.
Each region of France, (lets divide it in 3, north center and south) have very different ingredients therefore their regional food has marked differences between them,
In the north, (Normandie, picardie, nord-pas-de calais etc) are well known for the dairy produce, apples (calvados is the spirit made out of apples) and Camembert cheese. In the north, the butter is used in almost everything.
In the south, on the contrary, the food has less fat than in the north and its more veggie-oriented, since the warmer weather makes a great  zone to cultivate fruits and vegetables. They are closer to Italy so instead of butter, olive oil is used. 
Cities near the sea have a great variety of fish and seafood dishes.


Can you answer these Geography questions correctly without looking up the answers?


1.Is Georgia a country?
2.Where is Armenia?
3.What countries border Germany?
4.Is Hungary a country?
I know the answers already but I just wanted to test you.
----------

1.Is Georgia a country?
Yes it is. I know because I'm not an idiot plus I know a guy from there (good that I don't stereotype, because he was horrible). Plus there is a war with russia going on and the one guy who passed away on winter olympics was Georgia on (tragedy). 
2.Where is Armenia?
I suppose somewhere in middle east close to turkey as I heard about a genocide from that area that involved turks (sad)
3.What countries border Germany?
Czech Republic, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, France, Luxembourg, Denmark, Belgium are out of my head. I missed netherlands because I thought belgium blocks the border with netherlands. I suck. 
4.Is Hungary a country?
Yes, duh. How can anyone not know this one?
