  • American Culture: The First Game - 865 words
    American Culture: The First Game First Game American culture is in my opinion a mixture of all cultures in the world. In some states, minorities have become majorities because of the huge masses that have immigrated there. Those groups have integrated their own customs to Americans and at the same time, have made American customs part of their lives. In that enormous alloy called Americans, you can meet diverse kinds of persons, languages, foods and words. At the same time, specific traits make this culture as any other unique. The British writer Lesley Hazleton describes in the essay The First Game her experience when she attended a baseball game for the first time in her life. It was her f ...

  • Aquaculture - 1,393 words
    Aquaculture Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms in fresh, or salt water. A wide variety of aquatic organisms are produced through aquaculture, including fish, crustaceans, mollusks, algae, and aquatic plants. Unlike capture fisheries, aquaculture requires deliberate human intervention in the organisms' productivity and results in yields that exceed those from the natural environment alone. Stocking water with (juvenile organisms), fertilizing the water, feeding the organisms, and maintaining water quality are common examples of such intervention. Most aquacultural crops are destined for human consumption. However, aquaculture also produces bait fishes, ornamental or aquarium fish ...

  • Beloved - 2,213 words
    Beloved Toni Morrison's Pulitzer Prize winning book Beloved, is a historical novel that serves as a memorial for those who died during the perils of slavery. The novel serves as a voice that speaks for the silenced reality of slavery for both men and women. Morrison in this novel gives a voice to those who were denied one, in particular African American women. It is a novel that rediscovers the African American experience. The novel undermines the conventional idea of a story's time scheme. Instead, Morrison combines the past and the present together. The book is set up as a circling of memories of the past, which continuously reoccur in the book. The past is embedded in the present, and the ...

    Dolphins Of The Amazon River: How Sotalia Fluviatilis And Inia Geoffrensis Coexist In Their Habitat Kristi Simpson Biosc 491-14/Tropical Biology April, 1999 Dr. E. Pivorun Dolphins of the Amazon River: How Sotalia fluviatilis and Inia geoffrensis coexist in their habitat The Amazon River and its lush, beautiful forest are surely among the most amazing ecosystems in the world. The ever-present, primordial cacophony that echoed in my ears as I stood breathlessly watching saddle-backed tamarins (Saguinus fuscicollis) leap from tree to tree is what I will forever crave to hear again. As a biology student, I have always read about the great biodiversity of the neotropics, as the importance of hab ...

  • Everglades - 588 words
    Everglades The Everglades is a unique wetland ecosystem on the margin of the tropics. Its slow flow of water supports grasslands, thick forests, and a diverse group of animal, fish, and bird. The Everglades originated between 8000 to 10,000 years ago at the end of the most recent of the ice age. The melting of the glaciers caused the sea levels to rise and form a low-lying basin into a swamp. The climate of the Everglades is tropical savanna caused by hot, wet summers and warm, dry winters. The average annual rainfall exceeds 50 inches. Cypress, mangrove thickets, palms, live oaks, pines and lush vegetation cover the numerous inlets. Wildlife, although severely reduced in number and diversit ...

  • Fishing - 982 words
    ... ou need to learn the proper way to catch the fish. There are several ways to do so: still fishing, fly fishing, spinning, bow and arrow fishing, ice fishing and trolling. Still fishing is the oldest and the most popular method of fishing. Most beginners are introduced to angling through still fishing. It is one of the less complicated methods of fishing, both in equipment and technique. The equipment needed while still fishing is a rod, a line, bait or lures, the sinkers, and bobbers and floats. While still fishing a reel is not essential, but does help when landing a fish. Sinkers pull the bait down into the water, and bobbers keep the bait from sinking too far. Baits include worms, mag ...

There is a strong possibility that excess Creatine can put stress on the kidneys. Androstenedione is a direct precusor in the biosynthesis to testosterone. Its naturally made in both men and women. And its also found in the tree pollen scotch pine trees. Andro was first isolated in 1935, but it wasnt looked into until the late 50s when scientists determined andro is converted in the body to testosterone. There are two different pathways in the body that can create andro: either from DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) or from a hormone called 17 alpha-hydroxyp ...

  • Freshwater Regions - 1,507 words
    Freshwater Regions Freshwater is defined as having a low salt concentrationusually less than 1%. Plants and animals in freshwater regions are adjusted to the low salt content and would not be able to survive in areas of high salt concentration (i.e, ocean). There are different types of freshwater regions: ponds and lakes, streams and rivers, and wetlands. The following sections describe the characteristics of these three freshwater zones. Ponds and Lakes These regions range in size from just a few square meters to thousands of square kilometers. Scattered throughout the earth, several are remnants from the Pleistocene glaciation. Many ponds are seasonal, lasting just a couple of months (such ...

  • Hopewell Culture - 1,813 words
    Hopewell Culture Studied since the discovery of the conspicuous mounds in Ross County Ohio, the Hopewell have been an archaeological enigma to many. The tradition is so named for the owner of the farm, Captain Hopewell, where over thirty mounds were discovered. Earlier studies focused more on the exotic grave goods such as precious metals, freshwater pearls, many of these objects had come from all corners of the continent from the Rocky Mountains to the Gulf of Mexico, and north to the mid-Atlantic coastline (some say Hopewellian influence reached Nova Scotia). Earlier scholars of the Hopewell (1950s through 1960s) were well aware of the influence of the "Interaction Sphere", yet concluded t ...

  • Music Is Central To My Life Without Music, The World Would Be Naked, Cold, And Quiet Music Can Set The Rhythm For A Long Day - 1,129 words
    Music is central to my life. Without music, the world would be naked, cold, and quiet. Music can set the rhythm for a long day of work, the mood for a date, for a party, for your whole life. It can wrap you in a blanket of comfort when you are lonely, or inspire you when you are down. Music is a vehicle for expressing love, telling a story, or showing happiness. My love for music has grown immensely throughout the past few years and continues to grow without bounds. Playing musical instruments, such as the piano and guitar, has deepened my appreciation for the sounds I hear when I listen to music. From personal experience playing in concerts and writing my own songs, I have captured the view ...

  • Rachel Carson Through The Years - 1,067 words
    Rachel Carson Through The Years Rachel Carson Rachel Carson is considered one of America's finest science and nature writers. She is best known for her 1962 book, Silent Spring, which is often credited with beginning the environmental movement in the United States. The book focussed on the uncontrolled and often indiscriminate use of pesticides, especially dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (commonly known as DDT), and the irreparable environmental damage caused by these chemicals. The public outcry Carson generated by the book motivated the U.S. Senate to form a committee to investigate pesticide use. Her eloquent testimony before the committee altered the views of many government officials an ...

  • Survival Of The Fittest - 685 words
    Survival Of The Fittest Survival of the Fittest Alas, Babylon, by Pat Frank, illustrates genuine examples of how superior creatures survive and the weaker perish. Those who sufficiently responded to this difficult challenge set before them were Randy Bragg, Dan Gunn, Alice Cooksey, and Florence Wechek. Those individuals who were unsuccessful with this devastating feat were Edgar Quisenberry, Bubba Offenhaus, Pete Hernandez, and Porky Logan. During this period those animals that become savage beasts and would do anything for food survived, while the animals that were controlled by humans did not. Randy Bragg is a natural leader and a quick thinker and he had his mind set that he was going to ...

There are only two noticeable fluctuations on the entire island and one is the old limestone quarry that has been filled in, but still has depreciation in ground level. Types of Soils The heavy limestone buildup under the soil prevents the island from having mature soil. A layer of humus covers the limestone less than six to eight inches thick on the eastern side of the island, and considerably thicker getting up to two feet on the western side. (Moline 30). Vegetation differences cause the difference in thickness. The western side of the isla ...

  • Today, We Are More Concerned With Our Environment Than Ever Before Similarly, It Is My Belief That We Are More Knowledgeable - 1,683 words
    Today, we are more concerned with our environment than ever before. Similarly, it is my belief that we are more knowledgeable about our earth's environment than did previous generations. I do not believe it would be an understatement to say that the planet earth is in serious jeopardy--from the shrinking rain forests, to the polluting of the oceans and land, to the ozone layer problem. Nevertheless, for purposes of this discussion, it is my intent to focus on pesticides as one particularly rampant source of environmental problems. I particularly favor this subject, because I know that we as Americans can do much to prevent the deleterious impact which pesticides are having upon our environme ...
