I love the size of this basket, and it is so easy to carry things in. I wish it came in other colors, so I could color code each persons laundry! NativeTexan, September 7, Light weight, durable, spacious. Great for the laundry basket. ValuedCustomer, September 7, DUrable, lightweight and hold almost three loads of clothes!

Bellaboopa, August 27, I ordered this online. This item was an enormous disappointment. It is flimsy and a lot shorter than I anticipated. I will be returning this to the store. Don't waste your money one these. Carlee, August 24, Do not waste your money. The handles broke the day we moved in. Theresa, August 21, It is actually the smaller one. Not sure why the other reviewers had issues with it, as it worked great for me. DonH, August 9, I have a crack on the plastic top of my car radiator.

I assumed this tape would stick to plastic. Glue and a cloth strip did a better job. MrJB, June 25, They say it can be applied wet dry and even under water I used it on a leaking pipe and it continued to leak. The pipe had to be cut out of my house and replaced. I contacted the company and they said it has to be dry, clean and cleaned with a sandpaper material before applying. I indicated that wasn't in the directions and not how it is advertised on their own website. They are now escalating my issue to upper management.

Be cautious before using this for any temporary plumbing fixes. It has been a few days worth of emails to the company and I'm not sure what is going to be done about the fact that it did not do what it said it could do. These regions rely on the food that the land is able to produce and how much a family can afford to purchase. Regions like the Bahamas show economic disparity average income differing wildly between islands.

A portion of the population consists of unemployed and illegal immigrants who live on a low sustenance diet. The best environment for individuals to be healthy and tall is one where poverty does not stand in the way. Similarly, in places like Guatemala there have been estimates as high as 2.

Poverty affects resources such as water so that a little under half of Guatemala homes do not have access to running water. Resources are not spread equally, with indigenous groups in rural areas often getting the brunt end of the stick.

To combat these living situations, national organizations need to be formed and carry around sustainable assistance. A country has to rise together to improve social conditions. Columbia has slowly made progress towards greater economical security. Yet, some type of aid can cripple an economy. Foreign aid from other countries creates an unbalanced dependent relationship. In this case, like Bolivia, a country should augment foreign aid with building the infrastructure that will allow independent growth.

A significant part of height is determined by environment. This lack of nutrients can vary between countries, but anemia is high suspect of malnutrition. Argentinean women of childbearing age are deficient in iron and often pass that on to their young children.

To compare the widespread prevalence of this deficiency many global institutions carry statistical studies across the area that compare height and health. In Bolivia a study conducted found that men are more stunted than their female counterparts.

This stunting was also found to be me prevalent in rural areas in the provinces of Potosí, Cochabamba and Chuquisaca. A poorer country like Guatemala sees 1 in every 2 children have evidence of some stunting.

Mexico is not far off with 1. Wasting progresses to a point where muscle and fat tissue are severely depleted. These numbers are staggering but speak to how the lack of resources for nutrition is a compound problem crippling children for years.

Acute malnutrition is seen in various regions of Argentina, Bahamas, Belize and Brazil. These numbers seem staggering but real efforts on a national level can go towards a better health environment.

These numbers are promising and evidence of improvement develops. In Bolivia, children were seen to reverse the effects of earlier stunting and grow up to be healthy, normal tall adolescents. The two health risks of malnutrition and obesity still exist, but in varying degrees dependent on geography and economic status. In Costa Rica, women between 15 and 19 years are either underweight or obese.

Due to the varying availability and variety of food, height becomes a measurable tool of difference between regions. The Bahamas follow this difference with the Crooked Islands, the Family Islands and Acklins facing the highest malnutrition.

Further, difference in cultural entities creates very different ranges of dietary practice. The country of Belize houses different ethnic groups with ranging food practices. It is extremely difficult to account for health within countries without accounting for the nuances of each segment of the population and geography.

Guatemala relies on imports as droughts floods, deforestation and soil erosion prevent high agricultural yields. The varying regions also have varying degrees of government assistance. The Uruguay national programs are set up to assist the country. The changing landscape of a region is open to outside influence. Developed countries offer aid along with access to the idea of globalization. This globalization brings technology and infrastructure advances to the population as much as it brings cardiovascular diseases and a sedimentary lifestyle.

Health exists in relation to many factors of changing economy, education, environment and nutrition. The measures of health, such as height, demonstrate key regional differences and the gaps that require improvement.

Africa is a large continent with diverse nutritional challenges and roadblocks. Development varies across countries as parts of the region face unrest, under-nutrition and battles with disease. The landscape of Africa is similar to many developing nations — it is a study of contradictions. Regions of rural poverty are contrasted with urban centers of rapid economic growth. The living standards vary vastly not only between countries but within them.

The terrain offers different resources across the continent influencing local diet. In Benin, yam is a common staple in the diet. The interior of Morocco has the potential for wheat production. A region like Cape Verdean is able to produce cereal, rice, vegetables and fish. Countries with access to a coastline rely heavily on seafood for their diet.

Globalization has introduced wealth to urban centers of each country. With access to technology, diverse farming in less than fertile soil is able to take place. Many regions have adopted rice as a crop for its versatility and strength in persevering in the toughest soil. Yet, this increased development brings its share of problems. A global marketplace introduces high fat oils and sweeteners in packaged foods that promote obesity.

Countries such as Algeria depend heavily on food imports, and the diversity of the food index is still something that needs to be improved. In places such as Benin, the majority of livestock is dependent on imports and thus the supply is limited and not spread equally across the country. Micronutrients make up the majority of nutritional deficiencies in this region.

Vitamin A and Iodine deficiency exacerbate health problems until they turn into serious conditions like goiter a swelling of the thyroid gland.

The infrastructure and resources are present but not in a unified manner that can give consistent health care across the populations. Unfortunately, areas that lack this system have seen the re-emergence of diseases that were previously vaccinated against like tuberculosis. Anemia or iron deficiency is a micronutrient deficiency that affects most rural women. Female mothers are particularly at a high risk for chronic energy deficiency low BMI. A lack of nutritional education leads to poor decisions in infant care.

The availability of cheaper brands of formula has led to a trend for new mothers to choose to bottle-feed rather than breastfeed. This choice often puts an unnecessary economic strain on the household as babies become depended on this method of feeding. Breastfeeding delivers the best nutrition for a child, which is why some countries like Ghana have implemented teachings programs. In fact, supplementation and education programs are trying to be put in place to assist pregnant women to teach a new generation of people about health practices.

Micronutrient deficiencies often need a widespread regulatory system in place to combat the problem. Countries like Guinea have answered this need by implementing a salt iodization program against goiter. Health infrastructure is being built, but specialized medicine is still not available in rural centers. Countries like Ethiopia have vitamin A supplementation programs, and vaccines are being given to combat preventable diseases.

A key in the fight for health is naturally fortified supplementation. Cotton oil and agricultural crops like wheat flour can be fortified with iron, folic acid and B vitamins to raise nutritional health for vulnerable segments of the population. Urban centers are entering a new phase of development that is bringing challenges to the health center that have not been previously seen.

The exposure to unhealthy food options such as street foods, snacks and sugar-rich food have led to an emerging issue of obesity. Combined with a lack of physical activity, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are straining health resources. Water is crucial for human survival. The sanitation of water in countries like Chad is detrimental to the health of the population. Certain regions do not have access to local wells and so woman must often make long journeys across the land for cooking water.

Whiles genes provide the blueprint for height, malnutrition stands in the way of it being achieved. This reduced growth rate in human development often afflicts younger children. Nutritional education, infrastructure and resources are needed to put development back on track. A major roadblock in health advances is the changing landscape brought on by civil war, disease epidemics, and environmental disasters. Civil war from to in Mozambique severely handicapped health progress by destroying agricultural production and separating families.

Since the end of the civil way, the region has started the road to recovery. Similarly in Chad, shifting alliances and political changes create an unstable region where the migration of people changes according to safety.

Certain regions have an influx of refuges at their border as neighboring countries are at war. Malaria is another cause of sickness and death, specifically for vulnerable children.

Kenya is actively working towards higher immunization rates but much progress is needed. The proper utilization of natural resources is necessary for countries to have the economic ability for change. The land can provide diverse forms of capital.

What stands in the way of progress are natural disasters like the drought in Malawi that led to famine across the population. Kenya has faced alternating flood and drought concerns. Some regions like Cape Verde are limited in the resources they have. The land that is farmable is limited and often lacks the necessary rain for growth. Africa is a region of difference, and so different health policies must be made to meet the needs of the population. Health advances have been made but must further continue to improve nutrition and quality of life.

Dietary choice is depended on availability and the geography of the region. Egypt and Iran enjoy cereal as a main staple. The more urbanized the population density, like in the Province on Tehran, the rate of animal produce increases. Nutritional balance promotes health — Jordan has collectively tried to branch out and include a meal of wheat, rice, vegetables, and animal products.
