FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA Geography and regional characteristics
high temperatures on a given day in the United States to reach 70 degrees Fahrenheit (about 40 degrees Celsius). The United States owes much of its national character and its wealth to its good fortune in having such a large and varied landmass to inhabit and cultivate. Yet the country still exhibits marks of regional identity, and one way Americans cope with the size of their country is to think of themselves as linked geographically by certain traits, such as New England self-reliance, southern hospitality, midwestern wholesomeness, western mellowness. This chapter examines American geography, history, and customs through the filters of six main regions:
  • New England , made up of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
  • The Middle Atlantic , comprising New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.
  • The South , which runs from Virginia south to Florida and west as far as central Texas. This region also includes West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, and parts of Missouri and Oklahoma.
  • The Midwest , a broad collection of states sweeping westward from Ohio to Nebraska and including Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, parts of Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and eastern Colorado.

Most Recent Natural Disasters Were Not the Century's Worst, USGS Says Courtesy of the U.S. Geological Survey Dateline: 12/30/99 Killer landslides in Venezuela and Mexico. Devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Taiwan. Massive floods along the East Coast of the United States. Nature has dealt staggering blows to the Earth and its people in 1999. But these were not the worst disasters of the century, either in the power of the events or in the loss of life and property that they caused. "The costs of natural disasters lives lost, homes destroyed, economies disrupted have skyrocketed in this century, as the world's population has grown and has moved onto areas that are vulnerable to earthquakes, hurricanes, landslides, and other natural hazards," said USGS Director Chip Groat. "But there is reason for hope. By understanding how and where these natural events occur, so that we can build and live safely on the Earth, and by providing real-time information about floods, earthquakes, and other hazards, so that we can respond effectively when disaster strikes, the USGS is helping build stronger, safer communities that are resilient to natural disaster."

AKGenWeb, and researchers worldwide and throughout time, appreciate your participation. AKGenWeb message boards provided by RootsWeb Please read RootsWeb's Acceptable Use Policy(AUP) before posting to these boards. The geography and population of Alaska make quantifying demographic areas difficult. Over 70% of the land mass is politically classified as "unorganized". Boroughs, the Alaska version of Counties, number only sixteen. These message boards attempt to cover the vast area known as the "Last Frontier". Please peruse the choices below and post info or queries ONLY to the appropriate site.
"Unknown" is only if you truly don't know the location. If you have ANY idea of location, take your best guess and post to that area. As this site comes together, the many boards that Sarah and I host will contain a Welcome message defining the area covered by that board.

Training Initiative Newsletter
Spring 2002
Dear Friends, Please let us know if we can share any of our resources or expertise with advocates working to increase access to abortion care in your state. Sincerely, Susan Yanow
AAP Director NAPTI Launched in Alaska, Oregon and Washington In 1999, the Abortion Access Project launched the New England Midlevel Training Consortium. This year, we are combining the New England Midlevel Training Consortium (NEMTC) and the Family Practice Resident Training Initiative (FPRTI) as we expand our efforts to train primary care clinicians in abortion care to new regions of the country. This combined program, the New Abortion Providers Training Initiative (NAPTI), will continue to address the different legal and regulatory obstacles faced by physicians and advanced practice clinicians, while offering combined education and training events to physician/advanced practice clinician teams. While continuing our outreach and training work in the six New England states, AAP has launched NAPTI in three additional states. We are working with clinicians and activists in Alaska, Washington and Oregon to expand the scope of practice of APCs in those states. We are very pleased to welcome Debra Bufton (Oregon), Deborah Van Derhei (Washington), and Elisa Wells (Alaska), who will be coordinating NAPTI efforts to organize and train advanced practice clinicians and primary care physicians in these three states.
