The negative portrayals of earlier films on Aboriginals did not only have a great effect on how the world views them today, but it has also contributed to the continuing struggles of First Nations for individual rights. The world has a variety of interpretations and misinterpretations of the First Nations people, but the one that is stuck to everyone’s mind are probably the portrayals of First Nations in the earlier films. The early film’s portrayals of aboriginals were mostly offensive, inaccurate, and stereotypical-they were not pleasant. In the 1930s, Native people were portrayed as savages. One example is John Ford’s movie Stagecoach which shows a number of Indian type violence, heavy drinkers to being prostitutes to
Dear Board of Directors, The citizens of the city of Riverside are concerned with the pollution of Cherokee River and encourage the Kardell Paper Co. to switch to operational systems which are more environmentally friendly to reduce the health risks that are affecting our community. Our community is very concerned about the water quality of the Cherokee River. According to research, the river is currently contaminated with high traces of Sonox. The contaminants have been traced back to the industrial waste from the Kardell plant. The high readings of the contaminants shown were a result of tests conducted near the industrial pipes of the plant.
Calling it Quits Divorce plays a big role in modern day America, and unfortunately divorce rates have continued to increase over the past decade. Divorce is often perceived as a negative topic for obvious reasons such as causing damage to the family, traumatizing the children in the family and other psychological effects it has on people involved. However, both of the two articles I researched discuss divorce and its negative psychological effects; one of the articles differs in that it focuses on the ecological aspects of divorce instead. Jacob Duchaine wrote “An Argument Against Divorce” making claims against divorce and its negativity using biblical references and the stance that “No one takes anything seriously anymore, even marriage”(1).
Describe some of the problems identified by the Colorado River Task Force. “They were concerned that the piecemeal approach to the vast environmental problems along the Colorado was doomed to failure. These volunteer activists realized that isolated, parochial efforts, no matter how well intentioned, sometimes worked against each other and expended vast amounts of energy and resources without the clear goals necessary to have lasting effect. The goals of the Task Force are to provide an integrated overview of the Colorado River basins and to suggest and recommend policies and actions that will promote the restoration of a sustainable ecosystem along the river corridor.” http://www.sierraclub.org/rcc/southwest/coreport/index.asp 3. What is the California 4.4 plan, and how would it help alleviate these problems?
This social order was strict in the areas of marriage and punishments (Document 12). In Document 3, the Lords of Mexico explained that some parts of their history that were recorded were not acceptable for their people to see. So they were very precautious when it came to what their people knew about their history and what they didn’t. The map in Document 1 shows the territory that the Aztecs acquired, and most of them were taken by force. The Aztecs would also “demand tribute from conquered territory,” as stated in Document 10.
Agriculture receives 80% of the Colorado River supply, and much of this is wasted in inappropriate crop choices, e.g. cotton. As demand for water continues to rise, it is more than likely that a range of stakeholders will become angry at their wastage if it means their own water supply is increasing in cost or even cut. This is likely to include dwellers of highly populated cities environmentalists, recreationalists. Another major potential clash is within US Federal Governments – who are under pressure from their own politicians not to change water allocations.
In early human history, environmental change was usually the biggest reason people migrate from one place to another (Wood, 1994). Flooding, lack of land, and cold climates would push people out of their native lands. Migration also occurred for economic reasons including overpopulation and flooding of plains used for farming (Wood, 1994). Political reasons for migrating usually involve escaping war or invasion from other empires or tribes (Wood, 1994). .
Shortage in drinking water is a major problem facing developing countries which have not taken drastic steps to harvest water and purify it to make it safe for human consumption. However, this problem is also being increasingly felt in developed countries where the population growth has strained available water resources and stretched the ability of governments and private firms to provide safe drinking water to the population. There are many conflicts around the world where people have died or have been injured as a result of clashes over a water resource. Most of these conflicts have occurred in Asia and Africa where most developing countries are located. When humans clash over resources, this underscores the seriousness of the issue and calls for drastic actions to be taken to solve the problem.
Water is considered an essential element for the human being, animals, plants and all other creatures on the earth. Shortage of water resulted through various reasons that can be outlined as follows: Firstly, water passing from its sources across several borders supplying different nations through all over the planet and the shortage sometimes could be due to hard access caused by wars. Secondly, the population increase and water need too which cause shortage of water as the available natural source is not enough.Thirdly , the abuse of pure water by irresponsible personnel when being used in irrigation and for industrial use.This paper will highlight some important reasons for water shortage and particularly concentrate on the results of upgrading water securingalternate resources. One of the main reasons for water shortage is overpopulation. The high increase of population led to the need of expansion of the existing facilities and building, development of new shelters and infrastructure facilities to accommodate the expected of huge number of population, this fact consume a high percentage of the available water in the world.
There were also old Egyptian structures that had to be carefully moved to avoid destruction from the new path of the river. These relocations sparked controversy and resistance from the Egyptian people due to the old structures being a large part of the tourist attraction in Egypt. Another big problem the Dam caused was with the soil around the river. Normally the soil was very good for farming, even with the annual floods, but the construction of the Dam caused the nutrients in the water to stop flowing to the soil. The result was poor farmland and in turn, the poverty of the farmers wasn’t completely solved.
