While on vacation in Daytona Beach, Florida, my husband and I had a hair raising idea and, we decided to move our family from New York City to sunny Florida. We knew Florida would offer warm weather and sandy beaches. After we made the move, we learned that Florida offered much more. Florida provided my husband and me with opportunities not available to us in New York City. In Florida, we purchased our first home, we found work in government, and completed
WHAT AMERICA MEANS TO ME Freedom is a present that was given to me when I was born in the United States of America. There are many different ways to use this gift in my life and future. I am happy to have this freedom because there are kids who are born in other countries who never get to choose what they want in life like I do. One freedom that I have is the right to choose what I want to do. When I get older, I can be a doctor, a race car driver, or be in the Army to help protect the freedom we have.
(World book ency.) I have learned that the Biltmore is a mansion of beauty. And many people like to visit it during the holidays. George W. Vanderbilt was a very smart man when he decided to build this house because it has become a great success. I also learned that the Biltmore has very many activities for the guests to participate in.
Mama Lena has this plant that is old and worn out, like their old apartment. Yet she still cherishes and loves this plant as if it was not struggling to survive, even though none of the other family members seem to care for the plant because of is decayed appearance and lack of sunlight. Even though the living conditions that the family lives in are tough, Mama knows the plant will survive if she continues to give it the love that she has been giving, just as she does for the family. The plant has many symbolic meanings. It symbolizes their apartment, black Americans, and the Younger family itself.
The good I see in Oxnard is that we are right by the beach, so that gives us beautiful comfortable weather almost everyday. We are also well known for our strawberries and all the fields we have here. Although there could be room for improvement In Oxnard, such as making it a little bit more cleaner and trying to eliminate the graffiti and the gangs. Nevertheless Oxnard is my home and I come to love it just the way it is.
The government also dealt with the health of the Italian citizens very well. They did this by improving the quality of the drinking water in the south and provided quinine free to areas infected by malaria. They also reduced the chance of people catching water born diseases and becoming ill and eventually dying. However the government didn’t deal with all of the problems affectively and in some cases their attempt to make things better just made it worse. For example in 1897 Italy experienced a poor harvest and this resulted in raised food prices.
The major problems with cotton are that the plantations require a lot of herbicides and pesticides, they use a lot fertilizer and they use up massive quantities of water. Hemp however makes a stronger material than cotton that can be grown in several different climates, requires no herbicides or pesticides, needs no fertilizers and would consume a lot less water. Because hemp is more durable then cotton I would throw away less cloths and I would reduce my methane as well as my nitrogen emissions. The growing, harvesting and production of hemp textiles create significantly less greenhouse gases then the cotton industry and would be a fast and easy alternative to
Small farmers benefit from consumers who choose them over Stop & Shop’s aisles of imports, and these small farmers are getting help from the government. When you buy local more money stays in the community. This would not be the case however if you bought from a big food chain which sends the money out all over the place. For local business owners, the money that is spent locally will eventually find its way back to them which in return helps strengthen the local economy and helps local businesses thrive and grow. While some argue that buying local threatens small farmers elsewhere in the world, they ignore that if everyone bought local food, everyone’s local economies would improve.
Since there was not much food, they even had to eat biscuit with mustard which made them sick or got chased by the police because of steeling oranges. Peggy said, “The only thing we felt is that we were hungry and we were going to get food. Nobody made us feel ashamed”. Because she understood that it was not people’s fault, whilst others were feeling ashamed for having nothing. Saying that they were happy was not correct, but anyhow they adapted to the circumstances, and even thought that it was fun to go down the street to get soup.
It’s hard to argue with the health benefits of a diet rich in vegetables and fruits: Lower blood pressure; reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, and probably some cancers; lower risk of eye and digestive problems; and a mellowing effect on blood sugar that can help keep appetite in check. Most people should aim for at least nine servings (at least 4½ cups) of vegetables and fruits a day, and potatoes don’t count. Go for a variety of kinds and colors of produce, to give your body the mix of nutrients it needs. Dark leafy greens, cooked tomatoes, and anything that’s a rich yellow, orange, or red color.They are naturally good and contain vitamins and minerals that can help to keep you healthy. Research shows they can also help protect against some diseases.
