They ate just about everything except for religious taboo. Their shelter wasn’t well defined like people in modern societies. Aboriginals made their shelter based on the natural shelters available, such as caves, under trees, bushes and hollow trees. Most Aboriginals didn’t have blankets or anything to keep them warm, so having a campfire burning throughout the night was a common thing for them. They were very innovative in coming up with new ideas to keep them cool or warm, for example, in winter they would pile their shelters up with spinifex grass.

In the short story “Where Have You Gone, Charming Billy?”, author Tim O’Brien is able to make the reader sense that Paul Berlin feels alone, even though he is marching in a group of twenty six soldiers. Tim O’Brien accomplishes this by repeating a few select words, phrases, or sentences as well as shrouding the story with the obscurity of night, rendering the main character—and in extension the reader—unable to see more than blurry silhouettes. Because of this gloom, “He could not make out the soldier’s face” (64), albeit crouching mere inches away from him. By doing so, Tim O’Brien gives the reader the impression that Paul Berlin is the only person trudging through Vietnam towards the ocean. Due to the darkness pressing in from all sides, Paul Berlin does not interact considerably with his fellow soldiers, leaving him to wallow in his memories of the death of Billy Boy Watkins.
The Washo tribes are not an agricultural people, so they move in accordance with the seasonal food supply migrations, (Siskin: 1). They relied mostly on the two distinctive environments brought about by the arid deserts and lightly wooded areas near the mountains foraging piñon as their main source of food, (a tree’s nuts which where a stable for the tribe), and deer, mountain sheep, bear, rabbit, and antelope as a secondary source are hunted. Though the food supply was more sustainable for the Washo tribes, it was not unheard of for there to be food shortages; so as a result their population density was approximately sixteen people for every one-hundred kilometers, (Siskin:7). Tribal kinship was recognized by all of the Washo tribes; the differences between them were limited to slight cultural and dialectic variations. Linguistically the Washo did not affiliate closely with any other neighboring tribes.

Pine Beetle When one thinks of Colorado, what often comes to mind are vast mountain ranges, green pine trees and massive amounts of snow. This year as I made my way through the Rockies the trees weren’t as green, in fact they appeared to be brown, Since that day I have been curious if the pine trees will survive this brutal beetle kill epidemic. Although the western pine beetle may be small in size, it poses a large threat to the pine tree community. The western pine beetle is not a new invasive species; they have always occupied pine forest regions. The pine beetles actually play a large role in the pine forest ecosystem.
