I felt this article to be relevant due to everything going on right no in the world. After a single elderly man returned from a trip to Italy and was confirmed to have Covid-19, Brazil instantly ent on heavier security of who can enter their borders and the protocols around it. This is important Geographically, because it shows   how many different places all over the world are treating this and their defense against the spread and the outbreak.

When reading this article, I wasn't too sure if it would be what I was looking for, for this assignment. A lot of the stuff I Googled to use, seemed like satire and then I stumbled upon this one. The title may not be super engaging, but after reading it, I was filled with a whole bunch of new knowledge that I didn't know. For Instance, I had no idea that Russia actually discovered Antartica. I actually assumed it was the United States for some reason.

It seems from the title that this may another war story or a peace time marament, but in actually these two places came together to help celebrate an anniversary in their own homes and countries out of respect for the Russian Navy Sailors, by making a 200th anninversary postal.   A lot of the geographic concepts is the fact that, a huge continent was discovered by a larger country, and it was a big thing for all the surrounding places. It is also a large part of Russian history.

Hello. My name is Karson Martinez. Originally from Florida, I reside in Fairbanks, Alaska with my husband and step-daughter. What brought us here, was what brings most people here. The Army. We only have another year left, so for the mean time I have decided to finish my degree in Biology while being here. That is the reason I am taking this class, as it is a mandatory requirement.  The last time I studied Geography was back in Middle School. Where I am from, it is not a high school requirement to graduate nor was it in the curriculum.

The three places on the class map that I put were:

  1.  Birthplace: Brandon, FL.
  2.  Current Residence; Fort Wainwright, AK.
  3.  Place I want to visit: Connecticut, USA
