The Silence of the Limpkins by Susan Cerulean is about the overall degradation of Wakulla Springs. This story begins with the narrator describing how his colleagues and he have to put herbicide in Wakulla Springs every so often. As to clear the hydrilla, a plant imported from India because of a trade that overall massively impacted the Wakulla Springs ecosystem. “Hydrilla was imported to the United States from India for the indoor aquarium trade in the 1950’s. No one knew it would become a major invader of Florida’s lakes and rivers” (Susan Cerulean).
Although Bradley wanted to live in West Kansas for its hogs, he soon realized the natural beauty of California agriculture and the advantages of having his college classmates to support and guide him throughout his career. Bradley has experienced and noted the disadvantages and hardships while working with California agriculture. Agricultural defense such as Prop 2, Ohio Farm Bureau, E-coli and other factors have had a great effect on farmers and ranchers in California. From new laws and regulations to infected water, these defenses have put a lot of weight on farmer’s shoulders and are only a few of the many factors that cause
In document 3, Harry Truman states that the developing countries not only need but also deserve the support of the developed countries to improve living conditions, food supply, disease control, and economic life. The significance of this article is that the author never states that the Green Revolution is the solution, he only points out that there is a problem and that the developed countries are what can solve it. Document 10 states that the nature of the seed the people of Latin America had been growing for thousands of years has lost respect due to the imposition of the Green Revolution. He later says how the revolution contaminated the seeds as well as the over all environment. The significance of this document is that the author is explaining how the Green Revolution has affected small countries and peoples in a bad manner and that the revolution did not help their situation.
That is the reason why they end up in failure. They did not live up to expectations of a utopian. On the other hand, Vincent achieves success because he has the characteristics of the human spirit and he has the courage and determination to live life. Thus Gattaca shows us that a world based on genes alone is not a world worth living in. Jerome Morrow is a “vitro” birth whose genes are genetically modified but is a failure in life.
As well as this being a chance for Jamie Oliver to interact with his audience on a more chatty tone this could also just be his social and regional dialect this is how he may talk and he is known to say 'beautiful' numerous amounts of times. Grice's Maxims however may also be another language device this could be because Oliver is referring to the quality of the cauliflower and being truthful and calling it beautiful again this may not be necessarily true but could be interpreted as another feature. Jamie Oliver uses discourse markers because hes saying and describing what he’s doing whilst doing it. “bust open”- he’s simply saying open it however he says bust it open which can also be his dialect because that’s his chatty tone he uses to his audiences. Jamie uses vague language because he uses the word bust which isn’t a very formal word therefore its very vague on what he means by bust.
Explain why the work of Robert Koch was so Important? (7 Marks) Koch discovered and developed what Pasteur did not. Using Germ theory, he discovered the germ that caused Anthrax, a disease that affected animals as well as people. This was a phenomenal breakthrough as this was the first time that a specific germ had been identified, this then 100% proved Pasteur’s theory, which then left a wide door open for many more scientists to investigate and discover other specific bacterial germs that were damaging to the human body. The reason this makes Koch so important is because if he hadn’t investigated Anthrax using Pasteur’s theory, the germ theory may never have caught on leaving people to believe false theories for much longer.
In the article he backed up what he was saying with examples which makes for a creditable article. He also mentioned that Hosseini made the novel unique when he blended Persian and traditional literature together. Overall, Khawaja felt that the story was powerful and successful. Assessment 1.

Me and Mitch worked together to guess the overall density of each of the plants in the square. We classified betugland, salex, moss, pyrola and carex in are survey. Im not sure as to how the plot we did would be classified in the Canadian wetland system but the problems we encountered were being able to survey in deeper water as well as working around such uneven terrain. Any human activity in a wetland can be seriously harmful and even irreversible. The Fen we looked at behind Copperridge biggest fear would be man kind putting more houses or trails around it, because wetlands are fragile
Epistemology is a branch of philosophy that is concerned with the origin, nature, extent, and limits of human knowledge. (Richmond, 1970) his interest went beyond the nature of thought, but how it develops and understanding how genetics impacts the process. Jean Piaget’s interest in the natural sciences came at an early age. By the age of ten, he published his first research paper on the albino sparrow. (Rotman, 1977) Piaget continued to study the natural sciences and received his Ph.D. in Zoology from University of Neuchatel in 1918.
Genetically Modified Food can be accepted Nowadays, with technology’s developing, more and more Genetically Modified (GM) Foods are produced and come out in many markets around the world. However, there are a great number of people who think the GM foods are dangerous and may do harm to their health. Therefore, they can’t accept GM foods. Unfortunately, I believe that GM foods are available in our lives because they have never been proven to harm people so far, they are more nutritious than traditional foods somewhat and they also can benefit farmers a lot for their working procedures actually. Professor Ian Campbell from Australia's Peter MacCallum Cancer Center says that no scientific evidence showing that GM food is harmful to people's health has been presented to date.
