Melissa Sheryl A. Malano English 1127 Instructor: Davis, J. Argumentative Rhetorical Essay “There are no such thing as nuisance bears, but rather nuisance people”; a quote from Skye Lantinga’s argumentative essay titled, “Spring Bear Hunt”. The essay centers on the effects of Ontario’s government’s decision to ban spring bear hunts. Lantinga states that though numerous organizations and outfitters, who rely on the hunt for financial income, are opposed to the ban, the decision is nevertheless ecological and economical. However, “Spring Bear Hunt” is an ineffective argumentative essay due to its unorganization in structure, unconvincing methods of handling the opposition and underdeveloped ideas supporting the argument. The first reason as to why the essay is ineffective is due to its unorganized structure.
When they become overpopulated, the whole eco-system can be drastically affected. Native food sources can be depleted very quickly which can result in extinction. For example, the loss of cougars and wolves in much of the U.S has led to many species becoming over populated. Without the whitetail deer being hunted, there would be major crop damage and many more car versus deer accidents. Overpopulation often leads to disease and malnutrition.
Diary Entry 2: I am a white and I am on my way right now to find some gold my chances are slim and I know it but I am very frightened that the natives will capture me, the time period 1840-1860,, which are probably low, indicate that 362 emigrants were killed by Indians and 426 Indians were killed by emigrants. This makes me very nervous knowing that natives in the past have actually killed whites. On my way I found that there were many rotten animals which I believe was buffalo there was sixty million buffalos before the whites came and took land. Food was scares and we have to stop early just to start a fire; it took two or three bushels of chips to heat a meal because chips burned so rapidly I was very sad that we could not move on faster.

Some of the main threats to the survival of this species are: Forest fires Inbreeding Development Lack of political commitment Illegal poaching is another major cause for concern. Amur leopards are targeted for their striking, spotted coat, which can sell for up to $1,000 in parts of southeastern Russia. With less than 40 individuals remaining in the wild, the death of one leopard can have severe consequences for the species as a whole.
Gun Control is Not the Answer For many years now gun control has been a major issue. Many, individuals believe that if guns were strictly controlled that it would greatly reduce the amount of crime in the U.S. Although, this may be true it is not the answer to the problem. Stricter control of firearms is an infringement on all individuals Second Amendment rights. Not, only is it an infringement on peoples Second Amendment rights, it will also punish hunters and sportsman whom us firearms to hunt for enjoyment.
The next layer is the heavenly white cheese, which is my personal favorite ingredient . One of the great thing about pizza is how it feels. It has a smooth exterior if done correctly. It can also be mushy and the bread is nice and crispy. Second great thing about pizza is its appearance.
It was considered braver to touch an enemy with one’s coup stick then to kill a man, as one could easily kill a man by shooting them with an arrow (or rifle) from far away without any danger to themselves. The Whites on the other hand viewed killing as a necessity, where a dead enemy is a better option. Despite warfare progressing with rifles and horses being widely available to the Indians, fatalities in Indian warfare remained low. The Whites also found the Indian belief of scalping an enemy horrific. The Whites believed that after killing an enemy it was disrespectful and unlucky to touch a dead enemy.
When one moves away from meat products, it requires them to shift their focus on other foods such as wholegrains, fruits, vegetables, beans, peas, nuts, and seeds. Studies have shown that vegan diets have more fiber, antioxidants, and beneficial plant compounds. They also appear to be richer in potassium, magnesium, folate, and Vitamins A, C, and E (Craig). Another benefit of a vegan diet is weight loss, a 2013 study showed that a vegan diet helped participants lose 9.3 lbs more than a control diet over an 18-week period (obesity.org). Employees from 10 sites of a major US company with body mass index greater than 25kg/m and/or a previous diagnosis of type 2 diabetes were randomized to either follow a low-fat vegan diet or make no diet changes for 18 weeks.
Finally, food is wasted by us, the consumers because we throw away food if we get new food. Last week’s tomatoes and lettuce can be used to make today’s soup. Pests Pets also play a role in food wastes because a swarm of pests such as the locust can devastate months of careful forming and eat all the yield, thus resulting in food shortages. This mainly occurs in warmer regions of the world. Distribution On the way to the store, crops usually get filthy and are undesirable products.
Between 1972 and 2000 an average of 3125 hectares of woodland were cleared each year for fuel wood. Heavy tropical rains from November to April resulted in dramatic erosion of topsoil as there were fewer trees to hold the soil together. This left much of the land barren and unsuitable for agriculture, as well as preventing the re-growth in woodlands. However there are advantages of using fuel wood. One being that wood is a renewable source of energy and it doesn’t
