Pakistan and Culture Shaped by Geography

How do people in your area adapt their lives to their environment. Look at this website on the people of Pakistan. http://worldfacts.educationworld.net/pk/ write at least two sentences about how Pakistani history has affected their lives today; and then 3 about how your life is affected by geography.

  1. People in my area adapt by taking the bus too school, or driving to work. We go to grocery stores to get our food and rely on faucets for water supply.In Pakistan, there are no water ways, so they adapt by getting their own water. They have to adapt to mostly unpaved highways, so when it rains they are forced to drive through mud and holes filled with water. Few people use telephones. So, they have to adapt and find other ways to deliver information. They also have to adapt to the hot climate. In some parts of Pakistan, they adapt to a desert environment.

  2. We adapt to our environment by driving to school, shopping for groceries, clothes and other items. We get our water from buying it at the store or having faucets in our house. When we need food, we go and buy it at the store.
    It's hard to adapt to the environment in Pakistan since there are frequent earthquakes, heavy rain and then that causes flooding. There is water pollution and a limited amount of fresh water making it hard to survive. The average age of a regular Pakistanian person is 19 years old.

  3. People in my area adapt to their environment by finding transportation routes. Most people drive cars or take the bus, or even the train to get around to other cities. Our environment enables us to be able to have many different faucets of purified water and a refrigerator full of fresh groceries, but in Pakistan there are no waterways so they are disabled to have as many faucets as we do in one household. Pakistan, has suffered from decades of internal political disputes, low levels of foreign investment, and a costly, ongoing confrontation with neighboring India.

  4. We adapt to our environment by having many water supplies so we use baths and showers and sinks to get water. We also have stores to buy food and clothes at. In Pakistan they have to find their own water and food. They have the Indus river which helps them though. Also we have paved freeways and airports but In Pakistan they are mostley unpaved. There are a lot of people in Pakistan but not many cell phones. Where I live you see almost everyone who is from age ten and up with a cell phone. We have the ability to call people whenever we feel but in Pakistan they can't do that because they can't all afford to live like that.

  5. People adapt their lives so that they can survive. If there is a rain storm coming towards you, you would probably adapt by putting sand bags out to stop flash floods. Another way that people adapt to survive is that if it is very hot outside people will get fans out or put on their air conditioning.

  6. We adapt to our lives in our area by doing our normal routines. We do our laundry everyday, we drive everywhere, we have supermarkets every mile basically, and we take advantage our how we live. People in Pakistan has it differently, especially when it comes to labor force. We rarely have that here anymore, and definitely none where we live, but in Pakistan its 40.4 million people approximately, a lot of it is child labor too.

  7. People adapt to the area or environmnet they are bin because since they hace ben living there for such a long time, that is just what they are used to. Being ble to livie in the same environment your whole life, is like you are used to it. people adapt by just the makings that that city has. Even if the environment changes, such as the weather, people just deal with it becaus nothing can change the weather. The only thing that most people are not adapted to are almost all natural disaters because they only come around evey so often.

  8. We adapt to our environment by driving cars, taking trains, and riding buses to school or work. We simply go to the grocery store to get food and to the mall to shop for clothes. We have nice paved roads to drive on, and most areas have sidewalks. We communicate by cell phones, and by texting. In Pakistan, water is scarce because they have no waterways, and a lot of their roads are left unpaved. Pakistanians don't have many telephones, or people cannot afford them. The average age for all genders is 19 and there is only 9.1% of people that are 65 years old and older.

  9. We adapt to are environment by buying food, clothes, and expensive cars and houses. Everything is basically material things we don't need. Water is never a problem for us and we pretty much live worry free. In Pakistan there are many natural disasters so it would be very hard to adopt to that environment. There is not a lot of fresh water and there is a lot of pollution. The average age of a Pakistanian is 19. Life expectancy for a male is 61 years and a female is 65 years.

  10. Us americans adapt to water,foods,clothing's by buying it which comes from money.We rely on things to produce what we want which is true,but Pakistan doesn't have what we have and they don't have that privilege we have today so I am very thankful. Today my family is struggling to live this "expensive life" is how i view it as but we just have to live it out and also know that we have more than Pakistan has so let's not complain like we always do.

  11. We adapt to our life by useing our resorces, and the things around us. We use water when we want to, we take showers when we want to, we eat when we want to, we get already prepaired food when we want to. For us, life is easy compaired to other places around the world. In Pakistan people have nothing and no one to depend on for food and water, but themselves. They have to get there own water and food, which may not always be easy. Sometimes, the water isnt even clean.

  12. People in my area adapt in my environment in many ways. When the power goes out we have to light all the candle's in the house to get some light. Also if we are low on food we can just drive to the store and get some. In Pakistan They have to adapt to things like their hot, dry, dessert weather. They have limited resources and water. The geography I live in is easy to adapt to. We are lucky to live in the bay area today.

  13. California is regularly hotter than most places in the United States. For this reason many people buy warmer clothing. Also many people have to sell the warmer clothing to the public.

  14. People in my area adapt by riding the school bus in the morning, or people driving to work. We go to grocery stores to get our food and rely on faucets for water supply.In Pakistan,so they adapt by getting their own water. They have to adapt to mostly unpaved highways, so when it rains they are forced to drive through mud puddles. Few people use telephones. They have to adapt and find other ways to deliver info. They also have to adapt to the hot climate. In some parts of Pakistan, they adapt to a desert environment.
    Where i live some people doesn't even have cars,money,house,food,ect, Because of our economy, and were I'm from most of our land is in danger, people houses our destroyed, and also some people don't have nowhere to go.

  15. In Pakistan everything isn't so great, there are severe earthquakes, lots of heat and less water,or even really heavy rain. The people in Pakistan have to adapt by dealing with these things. They have to drive through floods and when its hot out they cant just go to the store to get water and food. That's how we adapt to our community. We can easily drive to the store or other resources we have to get what we need to live our everyday lives.I live in the Bay Area where there are many climate changes but we are able to deal with them. Its either by using an umbrella when it rains or wearing shorts or skirts when its hot out. There is always a way and that is why those of us who use those advantages should always know not to over use the power of having them. It will be hard sometimes but its always worth the try!

  16. It is very easy for us to adapt to our environment. Food and water is easy to get at grocery stores or from a faucet. The weather is not too harsh and somewhat predictable. There are many ways of transportation too like taking a bus, car, bike etc.

    Pakistan has a lot of roads that are not useable for transportation. There are no water ways for them to use. They are a very undeveloped country.

  17. In Pakistan there are allot of small earth quakes and not allot of water. It must be pretty tough to adapt but they found a way. In my life when I went from 5th grade to 6th I had to take the bus it was a big change for me but now I am used to it. Another big change in my life was 3 years ago I became a big brother and agin 4 weeks ago. It was a huge change going from an only chilled for so long to inviting someone new into my life and now he has his own personality.

  18. People adapt to the environment by adapting to the economy, weather, food etc. In Pakistan the people have to adapt to those same kinds of things, but it is a lot harder for them because Pakistan is a impoverished and underdeveloped country.

  19. People in my area adapt to our enviorment by paying for things we need like clothes, food, water, and other necesities or luxuries we would like. We use many types of transportation like buses, cars, trains, skateing, walking, and some of us even use a taxi. Over here we treat water like its no big deal and waste millions of gallons a day but in Pakistan water is very low because of not having enough waterways. The average life of a Pakistan is 19 years old and the life expectancy is 61 for a guy and 65 for a girl.

  21. The people from my area, we adapt our environment by driving cars, going shopping, communicating(cell phones or telephone),have electricity and most important water. Basically we have everything what we need. Although sometimes there is some things we don't need. For example Pakistani people its hard for them to find fod or water. Even tranport when they want to go somewhere it is really hard because some people don't have cars. Or the places are too far.

  22. Pakistani history affects their current lives in multiple ways. One way is their independence. They won independence a long time ago, which is why they are currently able to live in freedom.
    Our lives are affected by geography in many different way. One way is that it controls the amount of the natural resources we have in our area. If we have more or less of something than others, we will import or export those things. Our geography also provides different means of transportation. It isn't really hot or cold, so we can use normal transportation methods such as cars and bikes.

  23. People adapt to there environment by changing there clothing depending on the season. People adapt to there environments by driving cars, which means they are adapting to technology. Most people buy there food at grocery stores, when some people grow there fruit and vegetables at home, Depending on what there environment that they live in is

  24. People in my environment adapt to their environment like kids taking the bus to school and after school because if they lived far for walking distance they would take the bus because these days both of the parents in families work. another example that i brought up was that in belmont the houses are expensive and both parents need to work to be able to pay the payments on their house.

  25. We adapt to our envirment by creating new iteams to cowork with what ever is going on in the world. if gasoline is becoming scarce and is severly poluting the air we build solar powered cars. if a city is placed in an area that gets daily earthquaks then we build buildings and houses that can survive the earthquacks. we have things that we need and highly desired all in one convinet place. a mall or shopping center. but not all people in this world are as lucky as california. people in pakistani don't have enough to adapt cuickly enough. people are lucky to have homes let alone ones that can withstand an earthquak. they must work hard to make their own food and obtain their own clean water. travrel is complicated because many paople do not own their own cars and their is no public transport. life is easier by far for us.

  26. We adapt by using what we have. if we need to get something we have many stores.In pakistan its really different. They have to walk a lot to get what they need. In America its way easier because of transportation. In pakistan their transportation is walking.If i were to go living in pakistan it would be really hard to adapt because I am not use to how hard it is for them and how my life is way easier.

  27. People in my area adapt our environment by technology and by driving car's and by spending our money on things we really don't need. People in Pakistani it's very hard for them just to provide water for their family and they also have to find food for their family too! People who live in America have it very good and take things for grated way too much! If somebody from Pakistani where to come down to U.S.A and see how we live our house everyday I think they would think this all magic.=)

  28. First of all, a slice of pizza at my school is $3.50. Second of all, my school does not supply tissues. On Earth Day, people in my area, I must admit, are very good at "going green" (recycling, not wasting electricity). Speaking of green, the green on Pakistan's flag represents hope, joy, and love. As of July 2004, 159,196,336 people live in Pakistan. I am very happy I live in California. The weather is nice, and I do not have to watch the news everyday without forgetting to be aware of tornadoes. Nevertheless, I fear earthquakes, so I think living in the Atlantic coast is better, but bias or not, there is no place with a better atmosphere than the Bay Area.

  29. People in my community adapt to the environment by taking the bus or walking to their destination. We also buy our food and water. When we need water we also get water from the water faucets in our house. When we run out of food we drive to the store to buy what we need. People in Pakistan have to work for their food and walk to get their water. They do not have the resources like we have in our country. The have to adapt to what they have in order to live their life.

  30. People are adapting to the environment by driving cars to go places, and people just go to the grocery store to buy their food. Another example is using computers as a source for information, or flicking a switch to make the lights go on. Just like us, Pakistan has adapted to their way of life and their culture like with technology, food, and way of life.

  32. People in the U.S. have adapted to their environment very easily. They don't have to build a shelter for themselves or walk miles just for water or get to school. Instead we have houses and buildings like grocery stores which are already built for us. All we have to do is get there and buy things we want or need. We can get there by bus or car or any public transportation. Pakistan is an underdeveloped country that has suffered from decades of international political disputes. This has caused low levels of foreign investments and a costly on going confrontation with neighboring India. My life is effected by marshes and swamps, but they were covered in garbage and turned into a land fill. This landfill was turned into Redwood Shores. The hills in belmont have been paved into roads, and the hill side has been transformed into flat areas for houses,schools, and other buildings to be built.

  33. People adapt to the enviroment in America by driving cars or taking the bus to get to where you want to be. In Africa u have to walk everywhere. There is no cars or buses. Another example is I only have to walk ten feet before I see a water fountian or a sink but in many places in Africa they have to walk three to ten miles to get to a well, and they have to that everyday.

  34. We adapt to our environment by taking many stuff for granted, we have a lot of water and electricity so we use so much of it and it all goes to waste. Pakistan's adapt to their environment by changing what they do and wear. The farmers have to time it right to have their crops flourish.

  35. Adapting to our environment in America is generally easy. If we need food, we can go to the grocery store. We have access to clean water through water systems and faucets. If we need to travel a far distance, we can use planes, cars, and trains. Our communication is based on technology. However in Pakistan, they must adapt to the climate which is humid. They also don't have many paved roads which make traveling more difficult. Their means of communication take more time since they don't have the technology that we do. They have to walk to deliver important messages, and they don't have running water systems for easy access to clean water. Unlike the United States, trying to adapt to an undeveloped country like Pakistan, is very difficult.

  36. people adapt to the environment by taking the bus or train everyday. Also people adapt to the environment by using computers for searching information. the people from Pakistan have to adapt to their environment by having limited amount of water and most of the population of Pakistan does not have access to potable water.

  37. People do many things to adapt to their environment, like by taking the bus to school if they live further away from school. in Pakistan it is harder to adapt but because they have lots of little earthquakes they are more prepared cus they know was to do when that happends. They also have alot less water then we do so the have to use what they have wisely. In san carlos we adapt to our environment by wearing a coat when it gets a little windy or we use our computers to get invormation about anything we want.

  38. We do a number of things do adapt to our environments. We live in the bay were sometimes it can get extremely hot or sometimes it gets really cold or even windy. We also have to adapt to our transportation. Not many people might have use to taking the bus or train but they adapted to make their lives easier. In Pakistan its a whole different story. people that have been living there for along time haven't even gotten adapted. They always have to deal with earthquakes and they don't know when they might occur. They also have to deal with water they need to adapt to not using much water. We use plenty of water per day they my only use less than half or none. We have it easy.

  39. For us we have to adapt to technology because most of the things were live have to do with technology. For example, we have celphones so we are able to talk to someone other then talking to them in person which is very helpfull. But in Afghanistan most of the people there dont have cellphones so they have to adapt to there lives with just having to talk to people in person

    Our group agrees with Paige5 because we feel that our city takes water and our supplies that we have for granted. In Pakistan they have to work for their food and walk to get their water.
