  • Motives For Exploration - 816 words
    Until the late 1400's, Europeans did not know the existence of the two American continents ( North and South America ). To the European explorers, exploring the other side of the Atlantic was like exploring an entire different world, hence the name- the New World. In 1492, Christopher Columbus unknowingly discovered the new continent. His original motives for exploring was to find an easier route to Asia but instead, he discovered the New World. Thus; Spain, France and England began sending out conquistadors and explorers to the uncharted terrains of the new continent. Motives for the Spanish, French, and English explorers varied greatly, however, they were similar in some ways. The motives ...

  • Ice Age Extinctions Of The Megafauna - 1,635 words
    ICE AGE EXTINCTIONS OF THE MEGAFAUNA During the last Ice Age before humans arrived, the North American continent belonged to various forms of enormous, fantastic creatures. By the end of the Ice Age, most of these large animals had become extinct. Numerous attempts have been made to explain the disappearance of these animals, but there has yet to be a consensus. Among the theories that have been debated, two are predominant. They are the climatic change theory, and the overkill theory. The climatic change theory advocates the idea that the global warming, which brought about the end of the Ice Age, caused the animals to die off. The other is the overkill theory, which maintains that humans, ...

  • The Explorations Of La Salle - 1,611 words
    Before a territory can be settled, it has to be explored. Through an exquisite quest, amongst adventure and hardships, Sir Rene Robert Cavelier de La Salle set out to explore the Great Lakes and Mississippi River. In the winter of 1681-1682, the French explorer Rene Robert Cavalier, Sieur de la Salle, led an expedition from Canada down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico. La Salle reached the river's outlet to the gulf, where he set up a cross and a wooden post carved with the coat of arms of his king, Louis XIV. In the presence of a handful of followers, the thirty-nine-year old explorer claimed the entire Mississippi watershed for France, and named the new territory "Louisiana." Hi ...

  • St Lawrence Seaway - 489 words
    Penetrating 3,540 kilometers (2,200 miles) into interior North America, the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Sea-way navigation system, completed in essentially its present form in 1959, was regarded as one of the great engineering accomplishments of the 20th century and an outstanding example of international cooperation. . It was intended to remove much of the disadvantage of the continental interior in importing and exporting overseas. It was also designed to meet the increasing needs for electric power on both sides of the United States-Canada border. The discovery and prospective exploitation of the iron ore north of the Gulf of St. Lawrence made the seaway project politically practicable. The ...

  • Lewis And Clark - 1,169 words
    By the late 1700's, the young United States began to look westward and dream about the possibilities it presented. They wondered if there was in fact an all water route from the Mississippi to the Pacific, what the whole continent actually looked like, and really, what was out there. There were many individual and groups of people that helped pave an opening for the eventual settlement of the American west. Two of the most recognizable and important groups that opened up the west were the Lewis & Clark expedition and the group of fur traders known as the mountain men, for their chosen lifestyle. The west and all of its treasures were a great mystery to the people of the United States around ...

  • Essay On Lies My Teacher Told Me - 1,051 words
    James W. Loewen, in my opinion, makes a very valid argument in Lies My Teacher Told Me. He argues that teaching (of history) today relies too much on the textbooks which glorify the United States and its imperfect leaders and heroes. His examples, in fact, are very surprising to those most unfamiliar, or deceived, in their understanding of American History and are painfully obvious to those fairly educated in the events of our nations past. Personally, I agree with Loewens statements and find his points to be deserving of merit, myself having been taught from various sources other than text books and already informed of some of the incidents he refers to. The event, or chain of events, which ...

  • Urban Poverty - 1,695 words
    Poverty is defined as the deprivation with reference to socially accepted norms. Historically poverty has been a rural phenomenon. In the past cities for the most part housed societys elite whereas the poor were secluded to the rural areas. The industrial revolution saw a shift in this trend. People began to migrate to the great cities of the world in large numbers. Poverty that was once considered a rural phenomenon increasingly became an urban reality. Recent estimates reveal that by 2015, the poorest cities will house three-quarters of the world population. The poorest cities of the world lie in the developing world, in third world countries. African and Asian cities will continue to grow ...

  • Lacrosse - 1,162 words
    Lacrosse was one of many varieties of indigenous stickball games being played by American Indians at the time of European contact. Almost exclusively a male team sport, it is distinguished from the others, such as field hockey or shinny, by the use of a netted racquet with which to pick the ball off the ground, throw, catch and convey it into or past a goal to score a point. The cardinal rule in all varieties of lacrosse was that the ball, with few exceptions, must not be touched with the hands. Early data on lacrosse, from missionaries such as French Jesuits in Huron country in the 1630s and English explorers, such as Jonathan Carver in the mid-eighteenth century Great Lakes area, are scant ...

  • Rpt - 640 words
    A weekend in East Lansing makes me appreciate A2 Being a girl born and raised in the great mitten state of Michigan, I couldn't wait to graduate high school to get the hell out of here. But through some heavy parental convincing I somehow ended up in-state, here at the University, while the rest of my high school went to Michigan State University. And after a sketchy visit to State last weekend, I became vividly aware of just how much we are shaped by the colleges we attend. My friend and I stuck out like sore thumbs in East Lansing. In our Michael Stars stretch-tees and black booty pants we were highly contrast to the standard American Eagle boots and big orange fleeces. I felt foreign - wh ...

  • Food And Culture In The Midwest - 403 words
    This report is about the lifestyle of my own life, which would seem like an easy one but everyone today is so different so I had to dig a little deeper into the roots of the Midwest. The Midwestern states include Ohio, the Dakotas, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, and Nebraska. South of these states is the great Mississippi River and to the north is the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes were formed by the glacial ice cap that moved down over large parts of North America some 25,000 years ago. This region is well watered with annual rainfall exceeding 40 inches a year. Hence the climate is basically continental rather than maritime which means hot summers and cold winte ...

Three primary policy aims were presented: preservation of Canada as an independent political entity, maintenance of expanding prosperity, and constructive contribution to human needs.

  • Tom Hanks - 613 words
    Thomas J. Hanks was born July 9th, 1956, in Concord, California. Tom and his elder siblings were raised by their father Amos Hanks, following the divorce of their parents. Because Amos Hanks was a chef, it forced his family to move every six months in pursuit of jobs. This unstable upbringing meant many schools for young Tom, who had to readjust to his new surroundings practically every semester. Initially a shy schoolboy, he dealt with these readjustments by becoming the class clown and taking on different personality -- almost considered practice for his career. He took these "characters" to the stage and he began participating in high school plays. While a student at Chabot Junior College ...

  • Toxic Waste Effects - 726 words
    Canada and all of the developed countries in the world produce some kind of toxic waste(s). It doesn't matter whether it's a chocolate bar wrapper or a canister of highly radioactive plutonium, they're potentially dangerous to us and/or our natural environment unless properly disposed of. Toxic waste is defined as any waste that is hazardous to human health or to our natural environment. According to the Institute of Chemical Waste Management, about 15% of our garbage is classified as toxic, and only 85% (approximately) of that is disposed of properly. The rest is either illegally dumped or accidentally mixed up with non-toxic garbage. That 15% may not seem like a lot, but when you consider ...

  • Effects Of Short Term Memory - 1,510 words
    People have always wondered why they were able to remember certain things but forget others. After cramming for a test, why do you usually forget all the information over the next few days? When people cram for tests they have a tendency to use Type I rehearsal, which is repetition. Repetition is when you say the same thing over and over again until you memorize it. Type II rehearsal is elaboration. Elaboration is trying to connect what you are learning to something you already know. Elaboration is very effective. An example of Type II rehearsal would be the acronym of HOMES. HOMES could help a person remember the names of the Great Lakes - Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior, by us ...

  • Cyrus Hall Mccormick - 604 words
    The mechanical reaper. A time-saving invention which allowed farmers to more than double their crop size while at the same time spurring other innovations in farm machinery. This reaper, which combined all the steps that earlier harvesting machines had performed separately, was the brilliant innovation of a man, a man named Cyrus Hall McCormick. Born in Rockbridge County, Virginia, Cyrus was son to a man who's imagination also boggled with new inventions. As a child, Cyrus experimented with different tools in hopes of inventing something which would simplify his father's job. Finally, in 1831, he built his first reaper. Succeeding where his father had failed, Cyrus made some adjustments to h ...

  • The Physical Regions Of Canada - 785 words
    Canada is divided into six regions. The regions are the Atlantic region, the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River region, the Shield region, the Plains region, the Cordillera region, and the North region. Each of these different regions all have their own special traits which make them unique from the others. Things such as area, population density, economy, resources, etc. divide the regions and give them the identity they have. In the Atlantic region are the provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and parts of Quebec. This region was first settled by Aboriginals, but today only 5% of the tribes are still around. The size of the provinces in this region is qui ...

  • The Bald Eagle As An Endangered Species - 1,320 words
    The bald eagle is the most well known endangered species because it is the nation's symbol. It is suppose to stand for freedom and the American way, but if we allow the bald eagle to become extinct how can we let something that doesn't exist anymore stand for freedom and the American way. Being the symbol of the nation, the bald eagle was put on the endangered species list faster than most species. When the bald eagle reached its low point in the 1960's (400 pairs), it was put on the endangered species list. The many federal acts or programs, the "Endangered Species Act" being the most effective, that were created for the bald eagle show how much the government cares about the symbol of our ...

  • Piping Plover - 1,431 words
