This week we return to our long running county tour of archaeology by highlighting Northampton County, located in the extreme eastern part of Pennsylvania. Northampton County’s 377 square mile area is bordered on the east by the Delaware river and the great state of New Jersey. Its northern, northwestern, western and southern boundaries are marked by Monroe, Carbon, Lehigh and Bucks counties, respectively.http://twipa.blogspot.com/2013/05/northampton-county.html
Olympic counties: Does it matter where medal-winners come from?
A geographical breakdown of Team GB's Olympic success reveals some areas with more prizes than others. Why is it important to people which counties fare best?
For each of the athletes who achieved a first-place finish at the Olympics, a postbox in their hometown has been re-coloured gold by Royal Mail.
Why There Are So Many Rich Counties Concentrated Around Washington, D.C.
Parts of California, New York, and Connecticut are much richer than the D.C. area, but they often belong to larger counties that include areas with poorer residents.
Twenty-nine of the top 30 areas with the most million-dollar homes are in California or NYC's Tri-State Area. Eight of the ten wealthiest towns are in California and New York State. Forty percent of the nation's billionaires live in California, New York State, and Connecticut.
But the Washington, D.C., area dominates the list of highest-earning counties, claiming six of the top ten and 13 of the top 30. Why?
Every year thousands of new expat English Teachers head to South Korea from the seven native English speaking countries. However commonly these teachers spend maybe a year or two in South Korea and then move on. But why? Why don’t so many expats settle in Korea and make a career from English Teaching?

10 Signs Your Child is a Brat
No child is born a brat, but they are prone to bratty behavior. For those parents who are unsure if your child is a brat, here are 10 signs to look for:
1. They resort to crying or yelling when they want something.
2. They throw themselves on floor and won’t get up.
3. They constantly throw tantrums or even hit you when you punish them.
4. They ignore you when you ask a question.
5. They are rude to other adults and even to other children.
6. They refuse to share with other children.
7. They are show-offs and are constantly trying to one-up their peers to be the center of attention.
8. They always want whatever everyone else has. Once they have it, they want something new.
9. They keep a messy room and never help out around the house despite your pleas for them to do so.
10. They refuse to go to bed.
If your kids exhibit any or all of these behaviors, they might be brats. Don’t fret because there is hope for their bratty behavior and it starts with you.
HOW TO BRAT-PROOF YOUR CHILD
It's school holiday and that means mums and dads get to spend more time with their little angels - or devils perhaps? From bad manners to wild tantrums, kids seem to know exactly which buttons to push to get on your nerves.
So how can you brat-proof your child? Child psychologist and parenting expert Collett Smart dishes some tips.
Who's responsible for this sort of behaviour - the child, the parents, television?
It comes down to parenting.
What are the usual signs of a spoiled kid?
So how can we make sure we don't raise brats?
“Your kid is a brat.” I hope it is a phrase you never hear, but what do you do if your kid really is a brat? I want to talk to you today about a way to prevent it. It may be too late, and you have to switch directions with some of your techniques. It might be time to do the harder path in parenting. Here is the main point: Don’t raise your kids on the concept of “substitutions.” Now, what does that mean? Let me unpack it a bit. Kids need to learn disappointment. Unfortunately life is going to bring pain. When we try and substitute that pain with only pleasure, we teach our kid to be a brat.
I'm living in rural Japan now. I think a lot of the culture shock here has more to do with the ways that Japan seems so close to American culture, yet so far. So, it's a modern country with electric lights - but the light switches are a different style than US ones.
Finding that everywhere you go in the United States the light switches are all installed upside down. You walk in, reach to the side in the dark (at least the switch is still in the right place) and brush it downwards at it to turn it on - only to find that it isalready in the "on" position. It's more distracting than finding that people drive on the other side of the road.
To the weak, culture shock can ruin or even end a holiday or world travel backpacking trip. But to the strong and worthy, culture shock can be an enlightening experiencing. If you plan on traveling overseas to exotic places, culture shock is inevitable. What it comes down to is how you handle it. Its like a crash course lesson in an entire culture, which actually sounds pretty cool. So if you think you got it, add "experiencing culture shock" on your bucket list.
