- Castles - 1,215 words
Castles Whether on the mote, inside the walls of the keep, or as a separate building, the living space of a castle were very basic. The hall, was a large one room structure with a loft ceiling, the hall was sometimes on the 1st floor, but sometimes it was raised to the second story for greater security. Early halls were ailed like a church, with rows of wooden posts or stone pillars supporting the timber roof. Windows had wooden shutters held on by an iron bar, but in the 11th and 12th centuries were rarely glazed. By the 13th century a king or great baron might have colored glass in some of his windows.

... ld move the beams away from the steel beam piles to other workers who would bolt the beams into position. You could observe today that workers have begun to lay steel sheets on the second story that has already been assembled. This steel is placed over the floor trusses and then bolted down. Within in the site there was a concrete bucket for the crane, which will most likely be used to pour concrete for the individual floors. They can only lay the steel and pour one floor at a time or the steel from the above floor will be in the way of getting the concrete bucket through. Within the construction site were piles of wire mesh and reinforcement bars. This probably will be used as reinforce ...

- Ecology And Forestation - 1,190 words
Ecology And Forestation Trees have been with us since the beginning of time. We have been using its products for just as long. They have been used to fashion weapons, used as wheels, used for us to write with and to have something to write on. Most importantly they have been and continue to be used to provide shelter for us. I feel trees are an important resource for us and to stop using this important resource would be an injustice to society. Trees are there to be admired and to help our ecosystem survive but they are also there to provide for the things we need in life. An important example of how trees are helping people in extraordinary ways in by the use of tree products as cancer drug ...

- My Heaven On Earth - 396 words
My Heaven On Earth My Heaven on Earth I have this special room in my home, I can go to when I want to repose, or lose myself in a deep slumber. I can watch the sunset complement my bedroom with its gentle light, commending the color scheme, flowing through. Just occupying a space of mine brings me a special sort of self-satisfaction. I sit and reminisce about the times my mother and I painted the walls, the new linens, and bedding I have hung In addition, laid on my bed, or the pictures I have placed in their own particular order reflecting my own style and habits. My room is sweet like cotton candy, yet lazy and comfortable. Its color of a pale pink makes me feel like a little girl again. A ...

- Slavery In Texas - 1,584 words
Slavery In Texas AN EMPIRE FOR SLAVERY In the book, An Empire for Slavery, Randolph B. Clark describes the way in which Texas slaves coped with life under oppressive circumstances. Some of the topics discussed in the book include how slaves approached daily chores and provided for their material and physical condition.

- Spontaneous Human Combustion - 1,615 words
Spontaneous Human Combustion Spontaneous Human Combustion The world is full of the unexplained and mysterious, but is spontaneous human combustion truly spontaneous caused by the paranormal, or just simply human combustion? Most people think of spontaneous human combustion, or SHC, as ...the reduction of an otherwise normal, healthy human body to a pile of fine black ash, the consistency of which is finer than that of a cremated corpse (Spontaneous). This is simply not true. First of all, it is not complete consumption because in most cases extremities and internal organs remain because the high temperature outside the body does not penetrate internally. Secondly, the fact that the ash is so ...

- The Mikmaqa Way Of Life - 1,302 words
The Mi'kmaq-A Way Of Life Mi'kmaq was the spelling of a tribe of Indians that had first contact with European explorers in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Through the years, the name has been changed to what we know today as Mic Mac. The word Mi'kmaq derives from the word nikmak, which means "my kin-friends" or allies. The rich and descriptive Mi'kmaq language was a member of the Algonkin family. Although every Mi'kmaq can understand each other, the dialect varies between bands. For example, the Mi'kmaq spoken in Quebec differs from that in Nova Scotia. The Mi'kmaq tribe settled in southwestern New Foundland in 1630.

- Tremont, Ohio - 1,724 words
Tremont, Ohio A history of Tremont symbolizes the typical urban American neighborhood with its mish-mash of cultures. It offers eclectic sites and adaptive locations for filmmaking. I will look at the history of Tremont as a cultural center of the Midwest before the filming of The Deer Hunter (Figure 3). In addition, I will examine the history of Saint Theodosius Russian Orthodox Cathedral and the history of Lemko Hall to illustrate the eclecticism and adaptability that director, Michael Cimino, tapped in his film. Director Michael Cimino's most powerful, and controversial film work The Deer Hunter examines the uniqueness of this area by focusing its setting on Saint Theodosius Russian Ortho ...
