Section 1

1.Definitions:Aborigine: people from the Pacific region that were the first to live inside Taiwan.Homogenous: a word used to describe a group of people in the same ethnic group.

2. High speed transportation affects Japan's daily life in a positive way. Due to Japan's high population density, it's almost impossible to move around by cars. Because of this, Japan decided to make the bullet train, which transports people overlooking the overcrowding factor.

3. When people in East Asia move from rural areas to urban, there won't be enough people to grow crops, therefore hurting the regions agricultural future.

Section 2

4.Definitions:Ideogram: words that are represented by a picture.Shamanism: belief that a human leader can have healing powers and can talk to the dead.Acupuncture: a medical practice where a person inserts needles into the patient, removing sickness and pain.

5. In East Asia, health care is provided for everyone. The communist governments pay for it. In the US, you have to buy your own health care, so this can prove a problem for poorer people. I think that the health care in East Asia is better because everyone is supplied health care.

6. In East Asia, art and architecture is inspired by religions such as Confucianism, Buddhism, Daoism and Shintoism.
