This is evident through their ingenuity of floating gardens, knowledge of plants' uses such as the Maguey plant, the sowing of corn, and written records of agricultural products. The Aztecs demonstrated great resourcefulness and intelligence when looking at how they utilized their natural assets. Exemplifying this was the native Maguey plant. It is recorded that it contained innumerable uses as the plant served as firewood, fencing, paper, roofing, plates, and cloth. (Document 2) The cultivation of plants also showed the ingenuity of the Aztecs.
Basically their whole life depended on the stars. The Mayans used the stars to tell them when to go to war, harvest crops and other events of life. Astronomy is still in its use today especially because of the invention of the telescope by Galileo. Star spectrum is light coming from a star that is broken down into a rainbow. Spectra can tell us what makes up a star just by analyzing it.
Their agricultural strength was another component that added to the empire’s power. Trade was also important in the Muslim world. The Islamic people traded across the silk roads, linking once again China and the Mediterranean basin. Agricultural production would increase the amount of cities in the Arabs making refined business practices a necessity. This would cause the establishment of banks and the sakk, a forerunner of checks.
Although the Incas were more advanced and modern in their ways, the Inca and Aztec Empires were similar in some of the aspects that allowed them to be so successful and powerful. First, both civilizations had intensive agriculture mandated by the state. The crops were then redistributed to all the social classes equally. Both economies depended greatly on agriculture and farming, even producing some of the same crops such as corn and squash. Although agriculture based societies have been around for a long time in history and were pretty much the norm in this time period, their agriculture systems still created a surplus of crops, which allowed for increased populations.
His observations of planetary motion, mostly that of Mars, gave important data for astronomers to come, like Kepler. This helped us construct our model of the solar system we use today. The calculation that if the Earth moves then the stars are at least 700
Discovery of 51 Pegasi B In October 1995, a discovery was made by Michael Mayor and Didier Queloz that rocked the foundations of the professional planet seeking world. This discovery was that of a planet, 51 Pegasi B. My paper will focus on the path that two Geneva based astronomers took in discovering the existence of 51 Pegasi B. As the first men to find a planet that rotated so close to a star, they challenged the existing notions that planets could not exist in such close proximities to planets. Their discovery prompted astronomers around the world to look in places where planets were not found to exist and allowed us to further examine how a planet can exist at such extreme temperatures.
The Han Empire invaded northern Vietnam, Korea, and Xiongnu and subjected them to Han rule. The Roman Empire already had Italy, Greece, Syria, Gaul, and small outposts in North Africa and Anatolia, but by Augustus’s rule they got much of southeastern Europe and most of North Africa. Population increase wasn’t only by agriculture or colonization, but also voluntary migration. Large number of migrants from the countryside migrated to Rome for job opportunities, as construction provides work for hundreds of thousands of people. State ideology also increased the population.
It answers common questions by the public on disease prevention, especially concerning Avian Flu. The answers were from the trusted source of the Centers for Disease Control, a most trusted source in the US for all things infection related. Peter F Wright. "Vaccine Preparedness--Are We Ready for the Next Influenza Pandemic? " The New England Journal of Medicine 358.24 (2008): 2540-3.
They were able to gain things like corn and potatoes, but they also brought crops and trade products along with them to the Americas. They introduced horses as well as wheat and cotton. The expansion of trade to the Americas not only benefited Europe, but also benefited the New World by introducing trade crops that are still huge in America today. Without the discovery of these products, Europe’s economy would not have skyrocketed and they would not be as prominent a continent as they are today. The slave trade began around the mid-1600s with the European colonies that were built in the Americas.
