Darwin explains that eyebrows and lower orbicular muscles were used mainly for facial expression, Morgan agrees and also has another reason. She felt the female aquatic animals needed them to protect their eyes from the glare of the sun. She needed to be able to see her babies while they were in the water. The eyebrows protected from above and the lower orbicular muscles from below. For the male the reasoning was similar yet different; he needed it to see across the water to identify enemies.

Approximately two thousand hunters and cowboys annually visited Ft. Griffin. Their money and existence attracted gamblers and prostitutes alike, quickly giving Ft. Griffin the reputation as the craziest town in Texas.

Drink Industry - 1,949 words
When there is industry there is competition. The bigger the player, the harder they can play. The big players always try to consume many of the small competitors. When they do this they can expand their market share. A perfect example of this is the soft drink industry; Pepsi and Coke have always been archrivals. They are always trying to gain market share, by absorbing many smaller beverage companies to appeal to the public. This paper will discuss the history between these two industry giants and how they financially stand at this point, plus how supply and demand effects this industry.
