8 Maps Showing How The US Fits Into The Rest Of The World How the US Population Fits in Europe by reddit user jackblack2323 The US is the third most populous country on earth, with over 320 million people according the current U.S. Census Population Clock. Yet, only around 4.4% of the world’s people live in the country and considering it’s only the 180th most densely populated country on earth, it’s rather sparsely populated. Moreover, if the US ever wanted to catch-up with China (most populated) or India (soon to be most populated), it would have to increase its population fourfold (1.2 billion+). Even then, this would still only make it the 89th most densely populated country on earth (assuming of course no population changes in any other country).

FACEBOOKER RECORDS A CRYSTAL CLEAR VIDEO OF MULTIPLE UFOS WHILE DRIVING THROUGH THE DESERT IN ARIZONA by ARJUN WALIA Source: Collective Evolution Yesterday, a gentleman named Mauricio Morales posted some remarkable pictures on the internet that ended up going fairly viral across social media. They were snaps of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs, which does not mean they are extraterrestrial in origin). Shifting tides: Global economic scenarios for 2015–25 At the National People’s Congress in Beijing in March 2015, China’s Premier Li Keqiang announced a growth target of 7 percent, acknowledging that “deep-seated problems in the country’s economy are becoming more obvious.” Three months later and thousands of miles away in Washington, the World Bank lowered its growth forecasts across the board and asked the US Federal Reserve Bank to delay any contemplated rate hikes. The World Bank’s chief economist said that it had “just switched on the seat belt sign. We are advising nations, especially emerging economies, to fasten their seat belts.” So it’s going to be a bumpy ride?

Religions and Language Families in Europe.[[MORE]]... Religions and Language Families in Europe. by midnightrambulador Europe: Pick Your Master RaceReligion and language have been two of the most important factors in shaping cultural identities. So I thought it would be interesting to see language families and religious denominations overlaid on a single map of Europe, and since I couldn’t find such a map, I decided to make one myself.

World's Largest Tree Of Life Visualizes 50,000 Species Across Time Biologists love a good family tree. Mapping the relations between species since the beginning of time is an important aspect of researching the history of evolution. However, classifying and visualizing the links between the millions of species of fauna in the world is no easy task. Temple University researchers recently put together the world's largest tree of life visualized across time. The family tree of living and extinct organisms encompasses 50,000 species—only a fraction of the world's history of life—and would easily take up hundreds of pages if laid out linearly. To fit their work onto a printed page, the researchers, led by evolutionary biologist S.

Australian Aboriginal Art in the Top End – Australian Aboriginal Map The Northern Territory of Australia contains an abundance of Aboriginal art. Most of this art speculates the connection of culture and nature. Each art form has hidden mysteries that only the Aboriginal people can understand.

Limits to Growth was right. New research shows we're nearing collapse The 1972 book Limits to Growth, which predicted our civilisation would probably collapse some time this century, has been criticised as doomsday fantasy since it was published. Back in 2002, self-styled environmental expert Bjorn Lomborg consigned it to the “dustbin of history”. It doesn’t belong there. Research from the University of Melbourne has found the book’s forecasts are accurate, 40 years on. How Much Land the Federal Government Owns Will Surprise You The rough beauty of the American West seems as far as you can get from the polished corridors of power in Washington DC. Until you look at the title to the land. The federal government owns large tracts of the western states: from a low of 29.9% in Montana, already more than the national average, up to a whopping 84.5% in Nevada. This map, depicting the distribution and share of federal land per state, was first published on this blog way back in 2008. Nevertheless, it keeps accumulating comments and hits at a steady pace, and is still frequently shared around.
