... attern of systematic development also characterized American agriculture. In the year 1879, 74 percent of the American labor force worked on farms (Bolino, 34). The figure today is under 2 percent (Bolino, 34). There were some prosperous tobacco plantations in Virginia and Maryland, but most farmers and their families, which is to say most Americans, grew crops primarily for their own consumption. They had already started to barter with each other, and to buy and sell produce in significant quantities. So some specialization had begun. This shift in farming patterns was the real beginning of American capitalism on a broad scale, at least outside the major commercial cities of the eastern ...

The woman is -on her way to her grandparents' home, and the car is going so fast that it makes the house rumble when she arrives. Meanwhile, the announcer declares: "It's uncommonly fast, and fun to drive, and it makes quite an entrance."

Are We Heading For Disaster - 1,167 words
Here we are in 1999 in a world that is booming with technological advances. One would have to ask, "How did we come so far in such a short amount of time?" It seems as though it was only yesterday that we were traveling by horse and buggy. Now we travel by bullet trains, airplanes, and rockets. Seeing the arts and humanities in everything we did years ago was much easier, because technology didn't seem to advance at the rapid pace it does today. Is that why so many people fail to realize the importance of it as we soar into the millennium? I believe that if one dives deep enough into anything created today, they would be bound to find traces of the past. Arts and Humanities are more than jus ...

... gy exists for point sources of pollution to be monitored and regulated, although political factors may complicate matters. Nonpoint sources-runoff water containing pesticides and fertilizers from acres of agricultural land, for example-are much more difficult to control. Pollution arising from nonpoint sources accounts for a majority of the contaminants in streams and lakes. With almost 80 percent of the planet covered by oceans, people have long acted as if those bodies of water could serve as a limitless dumping ground for wastes. Raw sewage, garbage, and oil spills have begun to overwhelm the diluting capabilities of the oceans, and most coastal waters are now polluted. The pollution ...

Edward Gibbons Fall Of Rome - 592 words
In Edward Gibbons, DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE he argues that the reason for Rome's fall is because of Germanic invasions, a decline in public morality, and the rise of Christianity. With all of the above statements I would agree that Edward Gibbons is correct. They all help in the fall of the Roman empire. Where I think he did go wrong was in neglecting to state the other numerous reasons that help contribute to its fall. Three of these other factors that I think are also very important are; the lack of further expansion, the low level of technological advances, and the natural reaction of the rulers to hole up in their country estates with all their slaves at the first sign of wea ...

Classification Essay - 1,104 words
Poised motionless near the back door of the twentieth-century, we ponder memories of the past with a daydreaming stare. Before we turn off the lights and lock the doors of the twentieth-century, we take one last look through the century in which we were nurtured and our world lived for so long. The deep engraved scratches upon the walls of the twentieth century serve to jog our national memory to painful events as well as amazing accomplishments. After much reflective thought, we began to grasp how much our world has changed from when we first entered the front door of the twentieth century over ninety-nine years ago. America and much of the world have been industrialized, modernized, urbani ...
