  • Black Gold Texas Tea - 1,270 words
    Black Gold Texas Tea Trevor MacKenzie Black Gold the Texas Tea In this paper I will touch on topics of oil prices, the demise and growth of oil companies large and small and international oil regulators, natural oil deposits and their locations and life expectancy, and the future of the oil industry and all it effects. I have chosen to write on this topic because of personal interest in the worlds biggest resource, oil. In past years I have thought of how the modern world revolves around certain elements and ideas, one of these is oil. I wanted to try to get answers to questions I have had about How long can we keep extracting oil from the Earth? and How will people overcome a worldwide comp ...

    ... w used to locate oil deposits on land and in deep offshore fields. Two major new sites that are being tapped for oil is the Gulf of Mexico and offshore of West Africa. In the Gulf of Mexico 5.9 million acres off of Alabama and the Florida panhandle will be sold for development by December 2000. Areas around this huge plot have been drilled, but the new developments mean that we need to expand our search and extraction of oil. The seas off the coast of Nigeria (Africas biggest oil producer) is another major site for new development. Triton Energy made a major discovery on the southern part of a 125-mile long strip of undeveloped oil fields. Technology of drilling in offshore wells has adv ...

  • Continentality In South Texas - 537 words
    Continentality In South Texas Is it true that the further away from the ocean it is, the wider the temperature range? Hypothesis The theory of continentality is true. The further away from the Gulf of Mexico, the higher the temperature range will be. Background The theory of continentality is that the further away from a major ocean, the greater the temperature range is. For this project three major cities in South Texas were chosen; Galveston, Houston and San Antonio. I chose each of these cities, because I am planning to move to San Antonio or Houston after I graduate. The weather in that area of the country is very different than it is here and I thought it would interesting to find out j ...

  • Picture This: A Warm, Sunny, November Day In Dallas, Texas Everyone In The Town Is Excited Because The President Was Making A - 481 words
    Picture this: a warm, sunny, November day in Dallas, Texas. Everyone in the town is excited because the president was making a stop there and a parade was to be held. The streets were packed as the limousine, carrying President Kennedy, his wife, Jackie, the governor, and his wife, passed by slowly. While the president waved to the crowd, everything seemed to be well and good. Now picture the same scene, a few minutes later: the crowd is in hysteria, no one knows what is going on, but the president has been shot. Nobody knew who did it, or why anyone would, since Kennedy was so well liked among the American public. To this day, the mystery of JFK's death is still unsolved, but the theories a ...

  • Segregation And Discrimination In Texas - 1,598 words
    Segregation And Discrimination In Texas Segregation and Discrimination that effected Black Texans and Mexican Americans in Texas Historians have described the early twentieth century as the nadir of race relations in this country. Ironically, populism, which tried to create a biracial political coalition, helped to encourage segregation in the south. Attempting to prevent any coalition of blacks and poor white farmers, establishment Democratic politicians frequently demonstrated their Negrophobia by accusing blacks of having inherently inferior racial characteristics and warning that such innate flaws threatened society. There began a move to make African Americans outsiders, governed by pol ...

    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. Also, it is demonstrated how slaves tended to their psychological and spiritual well being and how they displayed their feelings towards this Peculiar Institution.

  • Spanish Missions In Texas - 553 words
    Spanish Missions In Texas The Spanish Mission During the 1600s to 1700s, the Spanish were settling Texas. They did this by building missions and presidios throughout the land. The purpose was to keep the French out and to change the Indians' ways of life. Some of these missions failed and some succeeded. All in all they were closed after years of trying to change the Indians. The first mission built in Texas was Corpus Christi de la Ysleta. This mission was built in 1682 and built east of today's El Paso. Because it was out in the mountains and basins region of Texas, the weather must have been very harsh. Priests at this mission had been escaping from an Indian uprising in New Mexico. This ...

  • Texas Politics In The Early 20th Century - 1,618 words
    Texas Politics In The Early 20Th Century Conservative Texas In the book, The Establishment in Texas Politics, by George Norris Green, Mr. Green describes how, since 1939, fiscal and social conservatives have governed Texas. Anglo-Texas nationalism supported the idea of Texas independence from groups including the federal government as it pertains to laws overseeing business practices. From the traditionalistic-individualistic scheme of Texas politics emerged a philosophy of material self-interest above anything that might be considered fair to other groups within the borders of the state. To make matters worse (or better, depending on your own political persuasion) Texas at that time was a o ...

    1984 "Few novels written in this generation have obtained a popularity as great as that of George Orwells 1984." George Orwells popular and powerful novel was not just a figment of his imagination, it was spawned from many experiences from childhood to early adulthood, as well as from events circa World War II. At age eight, he was shipped off to boarding school where he was the only scholarship student among aristocrats. This was Orwells first taste of dictatorship, of being helpless under the rule of an absolute power. Unlike his classmates, Orwell was unable to afford to go to Oxford or Cambridge and his grades kept him from winning any more scholarships (Scott-Kilvert, 98). Therefore, he ...

    5 March, 1999 College Sports Gambling: Fun or Fraud? Over the last several years gambling has invaded college campuses nationwide.

On college campuses, where money is low and much desired, students will sometimes go to great lengths to bulk up their wallets. Gambling, which on the surface seems to be quick and easy money, is a poor solution ...
