The article titled “In Washington State, Picker Shortage Threatens Apple Boom”, by Anna King, the economic topic of shortage in workers is discussed. Unlike western Michigan, Washington state has an abundance of apples, but not enough workers to pick them. At Broejte Orchards there are nearly 2000 workers, but at least 200 more experienced pickers are needed in order to pick all of the apples on the trees. Because states like New York, Michigan, Canada and Europe have fewer amounts of apples this year, Washington State’s apples are worth more, which is where the labor shortage is coming from. Most of the workers are getting paid up to 15% more, or are getting bonuses if they can stay the whole season.
The process to create the paper does not involve releasing harmful toxins like tree paper processing does. The largest benefit of using hemp as paper is the fact that hemp can harvest in just four months after being planted. Trees can take tens to hundreds of years to be ready for harvest. The fact that deforestation due to tree paper processing destroys the habitats for thousands of animals also must be taken into consideration and adds to the list of reasons why hemp needs to be grown in the U.S. In addition to the use of hemp as paper, an equally valuable and environmentally friendly use of hemp is as a source of

Although apples grown from seed are rarely sweet or tasty, apple orchards with sour apples were popular among the settlers because apples were mainly used for producing hard cider and apple jack. In some periods of the settlement of the Midwest, settlers were required by law to plant orchards of apples and pears in order to uphold the right to the claimed land. So Johnny Appleseed planted orchards that made for popular real estate on the frontier.  His first nursery was planted on the bank of Brokenstraw Creek, south of Warren, Pennsylvania.
The islander’s primary sources of food were sweet potatoes, yams, bananas, and chicken. The island had large forests on the interior, which were useful for building houses, canoes, and transporting the large statue heads called Ahu. The use of trees exceeded the rate at which they grew. When the trees were deforested the topsoil was exposed to the rain and wind. Without the fertile topsoil the production of food could not support population, resulting in cannibalism and civil war.
Why Europe? Anan Patel 12/16/13 The Europeans were the first people to explore and conquer the rest of the world. But, before they explored the world the Chinese had started this voyage project also, but they eventually receded from this because they were looking to focus more on domestic matters (DOC 2, 3, 4, and 5). The reason why Europe succeeded and the others didn’t because Europe already had advantages in society because of the plant and animal domestication, also they had enough competition between the different European countries to go out on voyages to look for more (DOC 1, 6, 7, 9) . On the other hand, the other countries weren’t able to succeed because they conquered by Europeans or their population died out from diseases or plagues (DOC 4, 5, 8).
