God created them, and strikingly so, so that He can capture our attention, for it is the only way to get us to stop, wonder, and hopefully seek for their meaning. As the similarities are explored and paid close attention to, God’s meaning and purpose behind them become crystal clear and extremely powerful. They become the answers to the questions of how and why these disasters occurred, as well as warnings as to how other disasters can and will happen again. Both the Titanic Liner and the Challenger Shuttle, were conceived when their respective industries had been flourishing. In the beginning of the early 1900’s transatlantic passenger service had been a lucrative business and shipping companies were competing against each other to see who would build the biggest and fastest ship.
He had always wanted to sail the open seas and explore and he did in fact that. Columbus had a lot of impact on the early explorers is successful journeys. If it wasn’t for him I wonder if anyone would have had the curiosity to travel or explore the “New World” or “America” as we call it today. All this research makes you ask yourself all these questions, like if we would have the freedom we have today, would anyone from Europe would have traveled to “America”? These are all the questions that have come to my
Christopher Columbus: Great Explorer and Hero, or Ruthless Villain? In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue, that we know for a fact, but there is so much controversy on how Christopher Columbus is portrayed. Many believe that he is a hero, the mighty discoverer of America, and others believe that he is no more than a murdering villain. The article Christopher Columbus Discovers America, 1492 favours the heroic side of Columbus. The author portrays Columbus in a positive light.
Diamond summarizes his answer to Yali’s question essentially attributing the environment for the success of the Europeans and discredits racial superiority of any sort. Although other factors contributed to the rise of the European civilization, the environment was the main factor. Some specific factors falling under environment that affected the European civilization are geography, food production, diffusion and population. Diamond explains the importance of writing in the European society. Literacy allowed them to conquer foreign lands easily because through writing, they could now have maps, sailing directions, and descriptive reports of previous sailors which would improve their experience.
Without this information the colony in the New World would have no place in history. In the end, Captain John Smith led a very adventurous life and had many desires. He was looking for a way to better his colony; he wanted to make it the best it could be. He had unique characteristics he was always brave and never fearful: he was always up for the challenge.

In what ways, and why, did Chumash culture differ from that of the San? • The San are representative of a seminomadic gathering and hunting society; the Chumash are more representative of the later, post–Ice Age Paleolithic peoples who settled in permanent villages and constructed more complex gathering and hunting societies. • The Chumash experienced remarkable technological innovation that led to the creation of a planked oceangoing canoe some twenty to thirty feet long; the San maintained only stone-age technologies. • Knowing how to construct or possessing an oceangoing canoe brought wealth and power into Chumash society and with it greater social inequality than found in San society. • The canoes also stimulated trade on a scale unseen in San society.
The Romans influenced such a vast area of the world for an extended amount of time due to their superior engineering skills. Aqueducts are one of their many inventions and arguably the greatest of their time and many years after. Before aqueduct technology, humans were restricted to build cities around natural water sources such as springs and rivers. These restricted cities grew crowded—not to mention also feculent and odious due to lack of a sewer system. Aqueducts enabled the Romans to grow in many different aspects including the size of their empires and their army.
His first New World journey did help fix one common mistake, however: it proved that the earth was much larger than people had previously thought.He was the explorer that tried to prove that the earth was not flat but was round by sailing across the seas and trying to reach each other , unexplored regions on the globe.

Erie Canal: America’s Symbol of Technological Greatness There are accounts of many advancements in technology that have helped the U.S. prosper with change, and the Erie Canal was an outstanding project that mimicked such an innovation. It succeeded America as a superpower and would highlight the effectiveness of the country’s trade and commerce. The use of a canal was conferred before the Erie Canal was even constructed; George Washington set up the Patowmack Company to build a canal in Virginia through the Potomac River. However, Washington died as the canal was being developed in 1799, and it fell into liquidation, even though it was a breakthrough. Its intention, along with the Erie Canal’s, was to join the eastern seaboard to the West
There have been many important events in the history of America between the United States and Latin American countries. Out of all of them constructing the Panama Canal is one of the most important, complex, and time consuming. The Panama Canal still to this day is important to the overall global economy and without it would be much harder, time consuming, and expensive to import and export goods all over the world. When looking into the history of the Panama Canal it is necessary to go as far back as the Clayton Bulwer Treaty in 1850 when the thought of the canal location entered into our young nation’s mind. When exploring this topic one must realize that we cannot fully grasp the importance of it by just merely studying the United States, Columbia, and Panama’s interactions throughout the time line of the Panama canal without looking at the roles Great Britain and France plaid in it.
