  • Black Bear Population In New Jersey - 1,593 words
    Black Bear Population In New Jersey Black Bear Population As the world evolves, the number of problems facing it increases with each passing day. The population numbers of many species are rising extensively. Several environmental factors along with scientific factors combine, resulting in over-population. As more buildings, homes, and businesses materialize, natural habitats where animals live are destroyed, leaving certain species intruding in rural areas where they once roamed freely. One particularly example of this problem is the black bear population in New Jersey. The black bear population is growing too quickly while their natural habitat is rapidly decreasing. The Division of Fish a ...

She had other ideas, and struggled against him like fury. The idea of her brothers standing watching made her fight all the harder, but at last her shoulders were pinned to the hay-covered floor." Great," said the twins in unison, "now kiss her." But Beatrice wouldn't co-operate in that either, and renewed the battle with even greater fury. Thus ended the first romance. The first job was at the Bank of Commerce in Creston when Birney was 16, wages $15 a week. He was a "promising young man" when the bank transferred him ...

Quito At 2,850 meters (9,360 ft), Quito is the second highest capital in the world. It is also one of South America's most entrancing cities, possessing a balmy climate, a wealth of fine Spanish colonial architecture, and a magnificent setting at the base of Pichincha volcano. Quito was a major stronghold of the Inca, defended by the general Ruminahui for two years after the Spanish arrived.

    Florida Panther As the deer fed at the marsh's edge, it's tail flickering as it nibbled tender and ripe green growth. Then the nervous animal pauses in it's feeding and lifted its head to listen. Whatever hint of danger the deer had sensed was ignored once the threat could not be located. It stamped a forefoot, lowered its head and began to eat once more, this deer had failed to detect a Florida panther that was downwind (going into the wind) crouched low in the underbrush. Amber eyes however, estimated the distance between himself and the deer. Then at the right moment attacked the deer, with bounds at over twenty feet at a time the panther exploded out of the underbrush pouncing on the dee ...

  • Hate Crimes - 1,181 words
    Hate Crimes Homosexual people make up ten percent of the population; that means if you are sitting in a classroom of thirty, then more than likely three of those people are gay. However, this overwhelmingly large minority group continues to be one of the least protected by the government as well as most heavily targeted by discrimination and hate crimes. Regardless of the powerful shift in public opinion on homosexuality during the last twenty years and the outcry for more government intervention in the case of hate crimes and other such atrocities, the laws have remained invariable. A hate crime is an act of aggression against an individual's actual or perceived race, ethnicity, religions, ...

  • In Recent Times, There Have Been Few Ideas Of Such Compelling Force As The Concept Of World Heritage There Are Places In Natu - 881 words
    In recent times, there have been few ideas of such compelling force as the concept of World Heritage. There are places in nature and culture with a value and importance reaching far across geographical and political boundaries and becoming a heritage of the world in general. This promising idea was taken up by an International Convention of the Unesco in 1972. Today over 100 countries have joined it. This Convention does not only strengthen the idea that all countries should make the defence of a unique, exceptional heritage a common cause, but for the first time it draws up a single List where sites of nature and culture rank side by side. The Great Canyon of the Colorado or the Galapagos I ...

  • It Is The Belief Of Steve Gould That These Strange And Bizarre Animals In The Burgess Shale Could Well Undermine Our Conventi - 1,000 words
    #3 It is the belief of Steve Gould that these strange and bizarre animals in the Burgess Shale could well undermine our conventional view of evolution. But his first argument, that the problematic fossils have such distinctive body plans that they must represent extinct phyla is misleading. If a fly and a mouse have body plans that are laid down by the same fundamental instructions, then it is perhaps less likely that the self-evident differences in anatomy stem from really radical differences in genetic architecture. The point I wish to stress is that again and again we have evidence of biological form stumbling on the same solution to a problem. Consider animals that swim in water...there ...

  • Jamestown - 582 words
    Jamestown In June of 1606, King James I granted a charter to a group of London entrepreneurs, the Virginia Company, to establish a English settlement in the Chesapeake region of North America. By December, 104 male settlers sailed from London instructed to settle Virginia, and find gold and a water route to the Orient. According to a list published by Captain John Smith, Gentlemen made up about half of the group, whose gentle birth suggests they knew nothing of or thought it their personal duty to tame a wilderness. The rest were artisans, artisans, and laborers. On May 13, 1607, the Virginia Company explorers chose to settle on Jamestown Island, along the James River 60 miles from the mouth ...
