English 9A: Growing Up: Family Narrative Mia Ippoliti My Family Narrative Last year my family and I took a spring break vacation to the beautiful state of Washington. Originally we had wanted to visit the Olympic Peninsula because of our love for the Twilight Saga book series but after researching on-line we realized that there was lots to see besides the infamous small city of Forks. We planned to visit the only rain forest in the United States as well as several wild nature beaches where we would spend low tide hours exploring the sea life inside of tide pools. We also planned to stay a few nights at two different Native American reservations on the west coast right on the Pacific Ocean! We named the trip "Our Wild Northwest Adventure."

Over 170 mining towns such as Humberstone and Santa Laura sprang up throughout the desert. The Salar de Atacama is Chile’s largest salt lake and has been mined extensively by companies such as Codelco and Lomas Bayas for bischofite which is used in agriculture and medicine. However, after the production of artificial sodium nitrate in the mid 1930s, there was a severe decline and most mining towns were deserted. They are now ghost towns, which have been left to deteriorate and decline. Humberstone’s population of 3,700 have left and it is now empty.

Geography 104 Field Trip: Observations of On the class field trip to downtown Victoria, I observed a variety of the different building structures, functions, and diversity and how they have evolved over time. Along with my observations I obtained a grasp on some historical knowledge of places including the harbour, Chinatown, and Bastion Square. The Inner Harbour is provides what some might say the most stunning view in Victoria. It is full of adventure and holds different opportunities for both residents and tourists to really experience and adventure Victoria’s landscape. Its oceanfront is home to a major seaplane airport, providing both tours and transportation.
USS and the Steel Industry History USS Corporation was created in 1901 as a mining and steelmaking company through a series of mergers. At that time, they controlled 65% of the raw steelmaking industry in the United States. Early on, USS used an aggressive investment strategy. In 1917 they were the first corporation in the United States to reach over $1 billion in revenues. They also employed 168,000 employees which was almost 1% of the total U.S. labor force.
The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We can walk around the grounds and it's free. There's only street parking but I took the public buses run nearby. This place is really educational and one of the places everybody would probably say wow to. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us a lot about Hawaiian history. What the museum has been able to preserve and share is amazing.
After exploring the island for three years Eric returned to Iceland calling his finding “Greenland” and boasting of its abundant resources: farmland, fresh water and animal life. Attracted to the many possibilities, many from Icelandic Vikings migrated to Greenland. Upon their arrival, the Vikings found evidence of human inhabitants, the Dorset people. Later the Vikings came into contact with the Inuit who were migrating across the Arctic following prey animals. Contrary to popular belief, the Vikings were primarily farmers and traders.
