December 7th, 1941, was the opening of World War 2, in the Pacific arena. In 1931, Japan invaded China's northern parts and then in 1937, Japan announced a full invasion of China. The United States couldn't just stand by and let Japan take over Asia's parts, so they moved their fleets to Pearl Harbor.

The ship was surrounded with over 8,000 tons of armor plating and had 14" guns that could shoot bullets over 20 miles.

... vironments than do smaller animals. Larger animals are safer from predators than small animals are, but it is also harder for them to sustain in trying conditions. Many of the larger animals such as mammoths and bison travel in herds, and that, along with their large size, protects them from predators. However, when the predator is Mother Nature, there is virtually no defense. For modern day elephants, drought is the biggest concern. It can take twenty percent of a herd every year, but the elephants continue to exist (Ward, 1997). It would have been harder though, for the mammoths and mastodons to survive a drought. Because of their size and weight, the Ice Age Proboscidea had longer ges ...

The American Indian Genocide - 1,415 words
Textbooks and movies are still hiding the genocide of Native American Indian cultures, which began five centuries ago.

Many aggressive attempts were made to reform the Indian peoples according to European cultural models, whether under threat of death or, later, through separation to government boarding schools. Government policies guided the destruction and con ...

Ayasofya - 5,052 words
Architecture, the practice of building design and its resulting products; customary usage refers only to those designs and structures that are culturally significant. Architecture is to building as literature is to the printed word. Vitruvius, a 1st-century BC Roman, wrote encyclopedically about architecture, and the English poet Sir Henry Wotton was quoting him in his charmingly phrased dictum: "Well building hath three conditions: Commoditie, Firmenes, and Delight." More prosaically, one would say today that architecture must satisfy its intended uses, must be technically sound, and must convey aesthetic meaning. But the best buildings are often so well constructed that they outlast their ...

... at current levels hay must be purchased from an outside party (at $80.00/ton) to support any volume of cattle above 30 during the winter months. Recently, RCC has been faced with the opportunity to expand self-produced hay in two different manners. First, RCC can buy a parcel of land that will produce an additional 100 tons of hay per year.

Diversity In The Workplace - 1,141 words
Workplace Diversity: Fact or Fiction? Are todays corporate diversity programs truly effective? That question, posed by Robert J Grossman in an article carried by the Wall Street Journal Online on June 28, 2000, will be explored as part of the review of Mr. Grossmans article. The concept of diversity goes well beyond the historical employment equity legislation enacted in both federal and local jurisdictions. It calls for the recognition of the contributions that individuals can make as individuals, not just as members of legislatively designated groups. It calls for management of organizations to be totally inclusive, not just tolerating those who are different but celebrating those differen ...

Charter Schools - 1,326 words
Charter schools are nonsectarian public schools of choice that operate with freedom from many of the regulations that apply to traditional public schools. The "charter" establishing each such school is a performance contract detailing the school's mission, program, goals, students served, methods of assessment, and ways to measure success. The length of time for which charters are granted vary but most are granted for 3-5 years. At the end of the term, the body granting the charter may renew the school's contract. Charter schools are accountable to their sponsor (usually a state or local school board) to produce positive academic results and stick to the charter contract. The basic concept o ...
