Describe el uso de la tecnología en los negocios.
Antes el chip de computadora, un simple lápiz y un cuaderno era la forma principal de negocios. La mayoría de transacciones comerciales sólo implicó el dinero efectivo hasta la invención de la tarjeta de crédito. La falta de tecnología hizo negocio muy ineficiente. Los beneficios de tecnológica son comunicación más rápida y relaciones internacionales. Los negativos de tecnológica son las personas se vuelven adictas y información personal se expone.

Provide insights toward a policy analysis assessing the impact that low-income neighborhoods has on single mothers.
A study on the relationship between population density, public transportation, and the health outcomes of women in low-income neighborhoods observed that the women living in low-income urban neighborhoods may face unique barriers to health if there is a high degree of crime; “increasing access to public transportation may increase active transportation among middle and higher income individuals, but may not affect the activity levels, or health, of residents of poor neighborhoods” (DeGuzman, Merwin, and Bourguignon, 2013, p.488). Many single mothers are living in low-income neighborhoods with few decent job opportunities available in a walkable distance. This directly impacts their ability to to find “local employment opportunities that provide sufficient earnings to improve, or at least maintain, the economic well-being of their families” (Mills & Gautam, 2003, p. 143). Furthermore, children six and under create a major barrier to workforce participation in both metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas, which presents a dual challenge for single mothers who struggle to find daycare opportunities during night and weekend shifts (Mills & Gautam, 2003). Without reliable transportation to and from daycare centers or work, single mothers are trapped in a cycle of poverty.
Describe how Balkan flooding exacerbated the landmine crisis in 2014.
Record flooding in spring 2014 in Bosnia–Herzegovina and Serbia killed an estimated 57 people and displaced more than 50,000 at the height of the natural disaster. As of 2014 June 13, 7,500 people were displaced and living in temporary shelters. The Red Cross reports that, in addition to destroying agricultural land, flooding caused thousands of landslides, displacing landmines buried during the 1992–1995 conflict associated with the break-up of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia as well as the warning signs marking contaminated land. Authorities estimate that more than 120,000 mines contaminate Bosnia–Herzegovina. According to the U.N., 70 percent of the flood-affected areas may contain landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO), and 800 sq km (309 sq mi) of suspected contaminated areas are flooded. Residents in flood-affected areas in Bosnia–Herzegovina and Serbia reported mine and UXO sightings. A landmine in Brčko, Bosnia–Herzegovina, exploded underwater with no casualties reported. In addition, mines were documented in the following areas: Bosanska Krupa, Olovo, Semizovac and Visoko. As floodwaters carry mines downstream, currents could send mines as far as the Black Sea. Furthermore, there is growning concern that floating mines may become trapped in the turbines of a hydroelectric dam. Bosnia–Herzegovina Mine Action Centre (BHMAC) official Sasa Obradovic warns that residents must take precautions as they clean up their homes and lands from receding floodwaters.
