He realizes that she is not a virgin nor is she in love with him, but she was his light at the end of the long, dark tunnel of the war. Every night Lieutenant Cross would hold the letters and “spend the last hour of light pretending. Imagining romantic camping trips into the White Mountains … tasting the envelope flaps, knowing her tongue had been there.” (Pg.

It is vitally important that foragers help each other in times of environmental changes. Sharing guarantees that food and water is dispersed throughout the community. For example, if a community’s waterhole dries up, they would ask another community if they may share in the water of that community ( Nowak & Laird, 2010). As for food the san tribe would only search for food two or three days a week. The women are so excellent in the gathering of food that they can feed their families for a week, while the men hunt two or three days a week for the meat portion of their diets ( Nowak & Laird, 2010).
Introduction When an athlete sustains an injury while playing the sport that they love, it can have a debilitating effect. Depending on the injury, not only can they be forced to miss a significant amount of playing time (which can affect their livelihood) while they go through rehab, they also lose a huge piece of themselves. The physical part of an injury is only half the battle athletes have to face. Thoughts, feelings and spirit all contribute to sport performance, and are important parts of every athlete (Brehm, 2008). Injuries cause extreme pain, limit movements and depending on the severity, can require a large amount of time for rehab.

The Maasai People are a semi-nomadic indigenous group of Africa, whose living region ranges from Southern Kenya to Northern Tanzania. The Maasai people do not claim a fixed location as a result of their nomadic lifestyle, and the entire migrating process is governed by the grazing of their cattle herds, which are adjusted to fit the seasons. The Maasai speak the Ma language, and their population is estimated at around 500,000. (T. Zeleza, The Heritage Library of African Peoples: Maasai, 1994, p1 http://www.maasai-association.org/maasai.html Kakuta Ole Maimai, 2008) People of the Maasai group believe in one god, Ngai, who is present in all things, and is the creator of everything. Ngai is neither male nor female, but can be addressed as both, and is presented as a god with two natures; the benevolent Enkai Narok, who is black and symbolises rain, fertility, love and the sun; and the angry Enkai Na-nyokie, who is red and considered evil.
The Mursi people of Ethiopia fight everyday to protect their people, maintain their culture and traditions, and above all survive in this unstable industrialized world. The Mursi people live in the lower Omo Valley of Southwestern Ethiopia. This rough oblong set of land mainly consists of volcanic plain that has been shaped and molded by the three rivers that it is bound by, the Mago River to the East, the Mara River to the north, and the Omo River to the West and the South (Turton). The Omo River, one of Ethiopia’s largest rivers flowing for over 1000km, serves has the lifeline of the Mursi people; not only is it their main reliable water source, but also allows them to have access to large forests, surrounding shrubs to graze their cattle, and sustainable soil for their crops (Turton). Even though they are bordered amongst three rivers, water is still scarce mainly due to the fact that rain is only expected to fall twice in a year.
