دہلی سلطنت کےدوران پنجاب کتنابڑا تھا؟
لفظ "پنجاب" (پنجاب) فارسی کےدو الفاظ پنج (پنج) کا مجموعہ ھےجس کے معنی پانچ اور آب (آب) کےمعنی ہیں پانی۔
پنجاب" کی اصطلاح قرون وسطی کےدور میں ایک مبہم خطہ کے لیے استعمال ھوتی تھی۔ یہ کوئی سیاسی ادارہ یا ریاست نہیں تھی ImageImage
جسکی اپنی اچھی طرح سےمتعین سرحدیں تھیں۔
سادہ الفاظ میں پنجاب ایک جغرافیائی اصطلاح ھواکرتی تھی، سیاسی نہیں۔
پنجاب کاعلاقہ سلطان التمش کےدور میں دہلی سلطنت کاحصہ ھواکرتا تھا۔ تاہم اسکےبعد منگول حملوں نے پنجاب کے زیادہ ترحصےکو ان دوطاقتوں کےدرمیان میدان جنگ میں تبدیل کردیا۔
پنجاب کا
بیشتر حصہ اب بھی دہلی سلطنت کے کنٹرول میں تھا، لیکن اس کا کچھ حصہ منگول سلطنت کے کنٹرول میں تھا۔
دہلی سلطنت کے اندر پنجاب ایک متحد صوبہ نہیں تھا۔ پنجاب کا علاقہ، سلطنت دہلی کے دیگر علاقوں کی طرح، چھوٹی انتظامی اکائیوں میں تقسیم کیا گیا تھا جسے اقتا کہا جاتا تھا۔

Very excited to share my newest article in @ProgHumGeog! My main argument revolves around how geographers can strategically contribute to labor struggles under a changing climate and the need to bring under one umbrella research that /… Image
currently falls within the labor-environment nexus. Some of my key arguments are 1) worker-led mass movements will be key to overcoming the climate crisis, 2) our research needs a clearer strategic compass on how it can contribute to struggles on the ground /
3) New conversion demands in industrial sectors represent an example of current environmental labor struggles. I compare those to past debates motivated by a shift from defense to socially useful production, 4) as geographers we have useful analytical tools that can help draw /

Feeling helpless at the scale of devastation in Turkey and Syria. Thinking of all those impacted.

If you have students who, like my disaster risk reduction class, want to understand what happened today, these links may help 👇

#Geography #TurkeyQuake
In these videos (2 parts) Remy Bossu explains that we can't predict earthquakes, what earthquakes are, what aftershocks are, and why the second 7+ quake today was not an aftershock. Also shows tectonic setting of the region:
This is the United States Geological Survey Earthquakes website, which provides up to date information about earthquakes worldwide and clearly shows the location and information for the quakes that impacted Turkey and Syria today:…

Canada is the world's second-largest country after Russia. The country stretches across 3.8 million square miles (9.9 million square kilometres). Canada is almost equal in size to China (9,596,961 sq km), but its proximity to the North Pole makes it look much larger than China.
The area north of the treeline: 2,728,800 km2, over 27% of Canada's total area.
Canada's land border: 8,890-km border with the United States, is the longest international border in the world.
#Canada is divided into numerous geographical zones. Average elevation is 487 m above sea level. The highest mountain peak (Mount Logan) is at 5,959 meters. The country has 52,455 mostly uninhabited islands in the open sea. #geography

First cloud-free #Sentinel2 satellite images in a month dropped yesterday. Great to check out snow levels, reservoirs, and wet wet wet in the Butte Basin/Lower Sacramento River. First image compares Colusa area now vs 12/15/2022. #Geography #RemoteSensing #CaWx #CaStorm 1/x
Imagery paints a picture of soil types. Along the River, coarser soils settle quickly once floodwaters slow down. Blue areas have more clay, because super-fine soil particles can stay suspended longer, travel farther in slow-moving floodwaters. Orchards prefer coarse soils. 2/x

🧵THREAD: I’m now an #AppleTeacher with Portfolio Recognition!
Over the past year, this has been a fantastic professional learning experience, as I reflected on & developed how I integrate @AppleEDU #iPad in my classroom.
👀 Here’s my journey…

Through #AppleTeacher Portfolio, a teacher creates a digital portfolio of 9 different lessons at three levels: Activate, Explore & Apply.
Teachers include aspirational examples, resources and — most importantly — reflections on each lessons.

Dominic Power analysed rural #female #artists’ work and #creativity in #Sweden. He found out that being in the #periphery does not automatically mean #isolation from the center or lesser #creative possibilities: Their networks go far beyond a classic #CorePeriphery model. (2/4)
Alice Bobée elaborated on the entanglement between #BusinessSchools’ cultural economic #geography and cities’ reputation: Facing reduced public #funding, #French business schools have set up campus in European cities, dissociationg themselves from their #national origins. (3/4)

Sunday border scramble in the sun, near Malval in Geneva. Political borders seeming dauntingly less trivial this week, as we think of people in Europe fleeing to safety across borders, while soldiers invade across others. #Geography #BorderNerds 🇫🇷🇨🇭 ImageImageImage
No. 138 We chased down lots of border stones in a marshy wood, of different ages. This one was apparently moved to save it from being swept away by the stream, so the marks on top indicate this, showing that the border follows the stream after this point.🇨🇭🇫🇷 #Border #Geography ImageImageImageImage

Now Out in Paperback! “#China Goes to #Sea: #Maritime Transformation in Comparative Historical Perspective”…

@NavalWarCollege @ChinaMaritime is proud to publish this new version w/ @NavalInstitute @USNIBooks!

Come for the #maps, stay for the #history...
Honored to have #JonathanSpence’s endorsement:

“The maritime #history of #China has long been a neglected field..China Goes to Sea bring[s] that knowledge-gap to an end..will be an indispensable companion to those readers seeking to understand where China’s navy may be heading.”
As European #naval powers & even the @USNavy struggle with ship numbers, #China has gone to #sea.

Represents the reversal of a great historical trend that began 600 years ago, when China withdrew from the seas & European naval expansion spread Western influence around the globe.

Many students ask me about SCM/Logistics Degree programs.
Go to any top business school at an Ivy League university.

Alternatively, you may choose to find some decent department of Economics that has a strong partnership with other faculties, such as Operations Research, Industrial or Transportation Engineering.
Many Transportation Economists also enter into SCM/Logistics or Inventory management using their knowledge of network models and game theory, etc.

1. Another question I constantly get: Can Chinese data be trusted? High Frequency data shop like Baidu or other private data source advertise their data showing similar thing as govt economic data, but more real time = acknowledgement of recent higher quality govt economic data.
2. Around 2014, the central government was extremely concerned that several northern provinces’ reported GDP numbers were overinflated by local officials. In 2016, the LiaoNing province in the north was asked to reduce its reported GDP figure by 22.4%.
3. 2018, after the fourth national economic census, 12 out of 15 northern provinces’ GDP estimates were adjusted lower, while 14 out of 16 southern provinces were adjusted higher. Jilin and HeilongJiang, both northern provinces, have respectively been adjusted down more than 20%.
