Construction of a Harbor in Jamestown – A Classic Case of Industrialization without Developing people.  A contradiction?

There are ten locations named Jamestown in the entire world. From Jamestown in California, North Dakota, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Australia and others.

Today’s focus on Jamestown which is located in Ghana, the center of hospitality and historical sites. Occupying in the east of Korle Lagoon, Jamestown is one of the ancient districts in the hearts of Accra, Ghana. It is known as a community on the Gulf of Guinea coast.

Today, Jamestown continues to exist as a predominantly fishing community inhabited mostly by the Ga people, full of colonial buildings which are popular tourist destinations for people to observe and site seeing.

In December 2018, Jamestown was thrown into the media limelight in the event of a sod cutting for the construction of a new…

Jam-Packed London, England by da-AL

24 Dec

Happiness Between Tails by da-AL

London, England, is a sprawling city packed with everything from art and food to shopping and royalty. The transit system is terrific, so for the few days that my husband and I visited, we let our feet guide our itinerary. A city of immigrants, the bed and breakfast we stayed at in the Shoreditch district was run by a New York couple. Our first morning began with a view from their balcony…

Many of its most famed sights are near each other, a riot of shopping, eating, history, theater, and even China Town, all walking distance of each other. It had been ages since we saw our dear cousin Giulia, Italian by birth and now a Londoner (read about her beloved mom here)…

We had a fabulous time with her brother, cousin Stefano (2nd from right) and his friend, Federico, who was visiting from Italy…

Temperature and Economic Development

Junior Economist

There are many factors that have an impact on the development of the country’s economy, such as human resources, natural resources, technological development, social and political factors and etc. Some factors do have a direct impact on economic development, while some others may have an indirect effect like geographic proximity, culture or historical path. I would like to discuss the climate differences that have a significant impact on almost a great majority of countries.

In this sense, my argument is that, if we have a look to the correlation between temperature and economic development of many countries, where we can explicitly see that the significant majority of countries which have a relatively low-temperature degree are mainly developed countries than those which are relatively high. In other words, when the average annual temperature decreases, the level of economic development rises. In the graph below, it is possible to see that most…

4 Movies on Climate Change: Melting Ice Caps & Sea Level Rise

The Day After Tomorrow (Photo: 20th Century Fox/Everett Collection)

A movie plot on climate change issue is rare to find in films until now. At least, there is a good amount of them for us to see and discuss with the world’s real problems. There are many movies related to the environmental catastrophe whether it is global warming, greenhouse gas emissions, eco-terrorists, dystopian futures, ecological collapse, and climate change in general.

Documentaries are far better in giving a real insight into the issue than feature films that tend to entertain. Some movies with the genre “cli-fi” or climate fiction are good, some are bad, some make the issue as a background story or it could work as allegories for an environmental catastrophe. Still, mostly they are very dramatic and halfway realistic as opposed to real-world events and scenarios.

Below are some of the movies on climate change, especially movies that…
