  • Analysis Of The Weather Leading To Hurricane Mitch - 1,256 words
    Many hurricanes have come and gone, but Hurricane Mitch was the worst hurricane to hit Honduras since the Great Hurricane of 1780. This hurricane devastated not only Honduras but some parts of Central America as well. A lot of the states on the Gulf Coast felt the remnants of Mitch but luckily Mitch was not the Category 5 that hit Honduras. Mitch?s beginning didn?t seem to show its strength and fury until it arrived in the Caribbean. Everything began on October 8, 1998 when a little tropical wave off the coast of South Africa began to stir up (Storms of 1998 1). This tropical wave then arrived in the Caribbean Sea on the 18 of October and just 3 days later, shower and thunderstorm activity m ...

  • Why Storms Are Important In Weather And Climate - 1,590 words
    Weather is the condition of the air that surrounds the earth. Weather affects our lives in many ways; for example, the type of clothing that we wear any given day depends largely on the weather. If it is cold we put on slacks, if it is hot we slip on shorts. The United States has to deal with the wildest weather in the world. Other countries deal with weather, but the USA brings blizzards, +100F heat and -35F cold, desert dryness, hurricanes and the worlds deadliest tornados. The weather also has a big impact on agriculture. Farmers need clear weather to plant and harvest their crops. Farmers plants require the right about of sunlight and rain to grow and ripen.

    In the year 2020, everything will and must change. From the rule of government to the way we live our everyday lives, all things will face some type of major or minor change. Government changes with the times. By the year 2020, with so many world powers, there in turn will be a more prominent world government system.

  • The Greenhouse Effect - 1,061 words
    While some people believe the earth's climatic changes are due to the fact that the universe is getting older, others believe it is due to the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is a naturally occuring phenomenon that is responsible for trapping heat near the earth's surface and keeping the planet warm. It is called the greenhouse effect because the way it works is similar to the way in which a green house functions. In a greenhouse sunlight passes through the transparent roof and walls and strikes the objects inside- plants, flowerpots, tables, and so forth. These objects absorb energy from sun, become warmer, and then give off energy themselves in the form of heat. Only a little of t ...

These conclusions, with their notes of pessimism, were not shared by the bomber commanders, and were echoes of a new problem of immense significance. Air power, and particularly the bomber, had introduce a new dimension into warfare. Despite results which were at best, inconclusive, and the continued growth of enemy fighter strength, the Commanders of the Allied Strategic Air Forces had reached the conclusion that they controlled the decisive instrument; that they could achieve victory alone. General Spaatz, commanding the United States Strategic Air Force (USSTAF), believed simply that Overlord was unnecessary. Air Chief Marshal Harris, his ...

  • George Washington - 1,067 words
    Born February 22, 1732, in Westmoreland County, he was the first son of his father Augustine's second marriage; his mother was the former Mary Ball of Epping Forest. When George was about three, his family moved to Little Hunting Creek on the Potomac, then to Ferry Farm opposite Fredericksburg on the Rappahannock in King George County. In the interim, the powerful Fairfax family of neighboring Belvoir introduced him to the accomplishments and appropriateness of mannered wealth and, in 1748, provided him his first adventure. That year Lord Fairfax dispatched him with a party that spent a month surveying Fairfax lands in the still-wild Shenandoah. In the expedition, he began to appreciate the ...

  • Farmer Dbq - 854 words
    During the span of 1880-1900 farmers began to feel as if their ways of life were being threatened. Farmers felt that a competition with railroads in monopolies and trusts, currency circulation shortage, and the powerful forces of Mother Nature seemed to be putting them in debt or even out of business. However, not all of the currency circulation shortage complaints could be brought up against the government, monopolies, and trusts. Over production, and bad weather accounted for these problems, which made the farmers complaint's not completely valid. Competition was a major contributing factor to farmer discontent. Farmers were constantly competing with monopolies and trusts. Railroads were p ...

  • None Provided - 1,413 words
    The gold rush of the 1850s symbolized Americas quest towards westward movement, challenges of life on the frontier, and the impact it had on Californias growth. As a result, the gold rush strongly influenced the shaping of American History. Many people that had heard of the gold rush in the 1850s moved right out there as fast as they could to get their hands on that gold. Once the people got out there they wouldnt return back to the east. As a result, the gold rush strongly influenced the shaping of American History. James W. Marshalls finding of gold on January 24, 1848 led to the expansion of the West Coast and the beginning of a new state, California. Marshall discovered gold in a mill on ...

  • The Transatlantic Slave - 2,910 words
    From the 1520s to the 1860s an estimated 11 to 12 million African men, women, and children were forcibly embarked on European vessels for a life of slavery in the Western Hemisphere. Many more Africans were captured or purchased in the interior of the continent but a large number died before reaching the coast. About 9 to 10 million Africans survived the Atlantic crossing to be purchased by planters and traders in the New World, where they worked principally as slave laborers in plantation economies requiring a large workforce. African peoples were transported from numerous coastal outlets from the Senegal River in West Africa and hundreds of trading sites along the coast as far south as Ben ...

  • Amish Culture - 1,941 words
    The past five weeks in my life have really had an impact on me. In such a short period of time, I have become more aware of the different cultures that exist around the world today. We tend to think that our way of life is the only way there is, or at least the only right way. It is really very ignorant to think that everyone believes and behaves the same way. People should stop being so self-centered and take notice and interest in cultural diversity. There are numerous different cultures in our country alone. One in particular is the Amish culture, which I would like to familiarize you with. The Amish culture consists of many unique beliefs that makes their ways unlike that of any other cu ...

    ... he development of an extensive deception plan, which was named, accordingly, Bodyguard. Bodyguard had two major objectives; to confuse the Germans where and when the attack would take place and to cripple the German forces once the invasion began. It was the most complicated deception plan of the war, if not of all time. In 1941the British broke the German Secret Service codes. These gave the British the name and identities of all the German agents, and were able to capture them. Some of these agents were executed or imprisoned, but most were used against Germany. They successively turned these agents into double agents. Throughout the rest of the war these double agents would tell the G ...

  • Causes Of Civil War - 1,267 words
    There were many causes for the American civil war. Some causes were underlying and some were immediate but all were vital in the cause for the American civil war. The differences in the lifestyles between the north and the south were an underlying cause. The south had an economy that was based almost entirely on agriculture. The north on the other hand was an economy almost solely dependent on industry and commercialism. This caused tension between the two sides on many different occasions. Another underlying cause of the American civil war was the different places people lived. People from the north lived predominantly in cities and people from the south lived mainly in rural areas. Each si ...

  • Mixed Blood - 677 words
    The question of race has been a long debated topic that still has not been answered. Jeffrey Fish embraces this issue in his writing entitled, "Mixed Blood." The document opens by proposing the question of "What is race?", then breaking it down into smaller factions. The two lesser questions that are formed instead are: "How can we understand the variation in physical appearance among human beings? How can we understand the kinds of racial classifications applied to differences in physical appearance among human beings?" The preliminary hypothesis determined is that race is a myth and does not really exist. Yet, Fish chooses to expand on various possibilities that may lead to other conclusio ...

  • Gericaults Raftas Legacy In Art And Politics - 1,011 words
    Theodore Gericault's greatest legacy as an artist is undoubtedly his Raft of the Medusa, completed in 1819. The painting is the comprehensive result of experiments with a variety of forms and styles; it marks the apogee of Gericault's career. Beautiful and horrible, incidental and ubiquitous, monumental without a specific hero, The Raft of the Medusa was to the Salon of 1819 a complete paradox. The painting's first critics were divided in their assessments by their political and artistic ideologies. Some critics at the painting's initial exposition desired a picture more blatant in social criticism while others felt that the painting derided the very patriotism they felt needed protection. A ...

  • Life And Legend Of Howard Hughes - 1,970 words
    The Life and Legend of Howard Hughes Throughout the 20th century, it has been the media's job to pinpoint what events and people would prove to be an effective story. This was certainly the case for Howard R. Hughes. Son to the wealthy Howard Hughes Sr., Howard became the interest of the American people and newspapers for most of his life. Being deemed one of the most famous men of the mid-20th century was greatly attributed to Hughes's skills as an industrialist, aviator, and motion-picture producer combined with his enormous wealth, intellect, and achievement. The media thrived on Howard's unusual and sometimes scandalous life, especially in his later years when newspapers would frequently ...

    ... lt to learn, and their musical form and content puzzled contemporary musicians. It is a measure of Chopin's stature that publishers not only printed these pieces but also paid substantial sums for them, even though they were unlikely to reap an immediate profit. Chopin's music sold so well that publishers were obliged to reprint his works frequently in order to keep up with demand. Most of these reissues used the plates from the first editions; and since printed scores of this period almost never bore publication dates, later printings are often distinguished only by changes on the title pages, such as the price or the publisher's address. However, there are frequently alterations in the ...
