why is africa so poor

Question: Why is africa so poor?

Answer: White people. Yeah, that was funny. 

Serious answer (copy/paste from http://www.mrglobalization.com/development/118-why-is-africa-so-poor): 

 

Africa has always been poor.  Indeed, for most of human history, the whole world has been poor.  It was really only in the 18th century with the industrial and agricultural revolutions that North Western Europe, especially England, started to lift itself out of poverty.  It is a case of Western exceptionalism. 

Why this occurred is a complex story.  But the rise of democratic government, openness to trade and investment, and the development of science and education are part of the story.  And as Western Europe developed offshoots in North America and Australasia, prosperity spread with it.  Japan then followed with the Meiji Restoration in the 19th century.  But, then it was not until recent decades that much of the rest of East Asia started to develop rapidly.  Again, globalization and good economic management are an important part of this story.

So, the question is why has Africa not been able to develop in the same way that Western, and East Asian countries have been able to do so. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE (Directs you to http://www.mrglobalization.com)

why is a tomato a fruit

Question: Why is tomato a fruit?

Answer: The tomato is a vegetable fruit. So it's both a fruit and a vegetable. 

Copy/Paste from http://www.ccmr.cornell.edu/education/ask/index.html?quid=653

Actually, the tomato is a vegetable fruit! In the scientific sense fruits are mature plant ovaries, but what we eat often includes adjacent or accessory parts of the mother plant.

For example the true "fruit" part of a strawberry (which is actually not a berry at all, but an "accessory fruit" like the apple!) is those tiny brown seeds or "achenes" embedded on the surface of the sweet juicy strawberry, which is an edible part of the mother flower.

The tomato is a special type of fruit called a berry, that consists of a single ovary with many seeds surrounded by juicy flesh.

Grapes are another example of berry fruits, but we grow them differently than tomatoes because grapevines are long-lived woody plants.

So why are tomatoes considered vegetable fruits? Because they grow on leafy green vines that we plant each spring along with other vegetable fruits like peas and pumpkins that only survive for one summer.

The true vegetables are foods like spinach or cabbage that are grown and eaten immature as leaves or leafy buds, before they produce their fruits and seeds.
