Migration: Pull and Push Factors

People migrate for a number of reasons. These reasons may fall under these four areas: Environmental, Economic, Cultural and Socio-political. Within that, the reasons may also be ‘push’ or ‘pull’ factors. Push Factors Push factors are those that force the individual to move voluntarily, and in many cases, they are forced because the individual risk something if they stay. Push factors may include conflict, drought, famine, or extreme religious activity. Poor economic activity and lack of job opportunities are also strong push factors for migration. Pull Factors Pull factors are those factors in the destination country that attract the individual or group to leave their home.

Sometimes individuals have ideas and perceptions about places that are not necessarily correct, but are strong pull factors for that individual. Very often, people consider and prefer opportunities closer to their location than similar opportunities farther away. BBC Terrific Scientific. National Schools' Observatory.

Since implementing the policy, staff at Findern have noticed an improvement in behaviour.

DISCOVERY. California Academy of Sciences. Mozart's dice game. Taking a Chance with the Music: Mozart's Dice Game In 1787, the same year he wrote his opera "Don Giovanni," and a couple dozen other masterpieces, he took some time out for a little parlor game.

Mozart's dice game

He wrote nearly 300 measures of music for a little minuet. But this was only the raw material. In order to figure out which measures would actually make the cut, and in which order, the composer had to roll dice, and for each number rolled, there was a corresponding measure of music. Anybody could "write" music under this scheme. Mozart didn't surrender his will entirely. HOW IT WORKS: The International Space Station (1080p, 60fps) Build a simple crystal radio set.
