    Quite a good, albeit incredibly biased, video on globalisation. Different approach to staring at books all day.

    I know and its a shame because I've worked so hard and it's all going downhill now!!! Trying to motivate myself by imaging how stupid I'll feel on results day when I think back to now! I guess we just have to force ourselves to finish the last leg and then PARTY TIME

    What's worse is that i've neglected geography revsion for my law exam, so i know i'm in for disappointment. It's so hard to find the balance when i find law harder and need a better grade, just hope i can chat my way around it in the essay on friday.

    Re-urbanisation hasn't come up yet, so I came up with a question based one previous years Outline the process of re-urbanisation and describe it's effects
    didn't know if anyone wanted to have a go then post it here and we can try and improve each others?
    Reurbanisation is the movement of people back into an area which had previously been in decline. Schemes to regenerate the area such as gentrification, property led regeneration and partnership schemes causes reurbanisation.

    Effects of reurbanisation are both both positive and negative and can effect the area both socioeconmically and enviromentally.

    Reurbanisation has socioeconmic effects such as the production of jobs through regeneration of buildings thus proving construction jobs, administartive work etc. this can be seen in the reurbanisation of the London Docklands where the redevelopment of old warehouses into flats along the canals provided 100's of jobs. Reurbanisation also increases services such as shops, cinemas etc. for example in Stratford, the large Westfield development has provided a local source of entertainment and well as providing over 3000 jobs for the local area. Reurbanisation can also have positive effects on local transport, with improved rail and bus works networks. In stratford this can be seen through the development of The light Dockland Railway and the development of priority bus lanes.

    There can also be negative effects of reurbanisation, the improved standard of housing and living, increases local house prices often far beyond the reach of locals. For example gentrification in Notting Hill means a maisonette flat can now cost a £1 million, which many cannot afford. This may create tension between local residents of contrasting wealth. Increased house prices often leads to developments of small boutiques, restaurants, local farm shops driving the cost of living higher. For example Notting Hill is famous for its up market restaurants such as the sausage and mash pub.

    There are also effects on the environment, these are mainly positive as they prevent the building on new green site lands and use brown site land. Saving habitats and open space. Regeneration schemes and consequently reurbanisation allows previously contaminated land to be cleared and given a new purpose seen in the regeneration of the Stratford area for the olympics.

    Not the best answer. Feedback appreciated

    Exactly the same feeling here, does anyone know the rough grade boundaries for what it will take to get an A in unit 3?

    As well for anyone doing the plate tectonics essay question, are you only focusing on stuff which has previously come up and not revising the whole tectonics spec??

    I don't understand how you can answer this question. Does it want you to discuss management? That's the only way to answer it that I can see. :confused:
    Bring in the effects on people, so u explain how a tsunami is formed I.e drawdown etc which is the natural disaster following the quake then bring in human stuff, no warning system in Indonesia = pop. Had no idea what was coming their way. Then go specific with the cast study human impacts out way natural Justin death toll/injury etc
    Then bring in quake studies contrasting areas ( San Fran= conservative & Gujarat, India)
    Comment on levels of dvpt, pop density, climate, built environ, I.e synoptic India = monsoon- homeless due to weak structure, warm & wet = disease= death + LEDC = inadequate healthcare.
    San Fran is more prepared, has actions in place + building regs are tightened
    Volcanic= impacts, lava flows burn through houses, people can evacuate, gentle eruption I,e mauna loa contrast sourfieré hills, pyroclastics = city buried in 10m of ash & mud

    I would say thats a damn good answer I didn't actually think to use gentrification when I wrote mine. Might what to mention that its mainly young people who are involved in re-urbanisation etc. Can't fault it much though!
