Question 1a i) Exhibition items for museum 1) Map: A modern map of the Arctic 2) Photograph: Arctic sea ice 3) Data: The recent climate of the Arctic region 4) Object: A sample of Martin Frobisher’s ‘gold’ ore? 5) Picture: The Sea of Ice by Casper David Friedrich (1823-1824) [pic] (ii) 1) Where’s the Arctic ? : A modern world map will give accurate positioning of countries and continents through longitude and latitude, the Arctic however is an area defined by environmental conditions, so cannot be accurately defined adding difficulties in mapping areas seen by the inter-polar countries as their territories. 2) Lost landscape: Photos of this part of our world may well be all we have left to remind us of what existed. A mid-century mean earth temperature rise could see this frozen landscape transformed into a permanent seascape.
Local Issues: Riverside Supervisors vote against Temecula rock quarry I have a proposal, let’s halt the creation of new jobs, let’s increase semi-truck traffic on our already overcrowded and crazy highways in Southern California and lets increase city taxes that will help pay for outsourcing for a material that is very widely used for construction of better structures and improving a city’s growth. This is what will be the outcome due to the quarry opponents against the proposed rock quarry in the Temecula Valley. On Thursday, February 16th the Riverside County Board of Supervisors voted against the seven year debate over a proposed rock quarry that would bring at least 100 new jobs, lower city costs due to the importation of aggregate into the city. To be more specific in terms of money, the aggregate quarry would have brought in over $300 million in sales tax revenue and over $41 million in property tax fees. My reaction is simple and shows lots of disagreement with the people who opposed the rock quarry.
Audre Dubus the author of “Giving up the Gun.” He taught at Bradford College for 28 years, in the time he was teaching he released six books. Five of which were books completely comprised of his short storys that he had written. The sixth was his only novel. This story comes from his book titled “Meditations for a Moveable Chair.” This book was inspired when he was forced to spend the rest of his life in a weel chair after an life changing ascendent in the summer of 1986. His essay “Giving up the Gun” is about some of his life experiences.
The only territory remaining were the American Indians located in Colorado. A major driving force that sparked this massacre was the gold and silver rush that attracted white settlers to this region. This created a considerable amount of anger toward the Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians. Involvement of U.S settlers in their land produced violence between both parties, however, after the Civil war violence intensified even more. Throughout this historical era, a series of wars continued with U.S expansion for the rest of 19th century, however, the battle of Sand Creek illustrated a disturbing massacre by the United States that could have been avoided.
Isle Royale’s geographical history begins about 1.2 billion years ago, during the early Proterozoic Ear, as molten lava leaked through cracks of the bottom of Lake Superior. As the molten lava hardened over time the land mass broke through the water level, as the lava hardened and the lake level decreased, and then created the Island of Isle Royale. After the Island was “born” glaciers moved across the freshly created land. There were 4 glacial periods, with the last ice-advance (Wisconsin) occurring some thousands of years ago. This ice-advance altered the ridges and valleys and gave the Island its unique washboard look.
History and significance The first complete Anomalocaris fossil found. The Burgess Shale was discovered by palaeontologist Charles Walcott in 1909, towards the end of the season's fieldwork. He returned in 1910 with his sons, daughter, and wife, establishing a quarry on the flanks of Fossil Ridge. The significance of soft-bodied preservation, and the range of organisms he recognised as new to science, led him to return to the quarry almost every year until 1924. At this point, aged 74, he had amassed over 65,000 specimens.
The Author frequently uses transitional words and phrases dealing with TIME and PLACE. ”NOW, the enterprise we human beings in the “developed world” have engaged in is almost too darkly insane to contemplate.” “TWENTY THOUSAND YEARS AGO temperatures plummeted and ice grew from the top of the world like vines and ground covers.” “ALREADY, warmer temperatures are causing meltwater to stream into oceans, changing temperature and
Like any story in the media it started out small when people started to realize what we were really doing as people who are a part of the modern consumer society. Unfortunately, man’s quest in the past 30-40 years of expanding his grasp to the far reaches of the world have accelerated the clock on our glaciers and have left the future generations to deal with the consequences. Why this warming event is happening can be pointed to several sources. These sources are: the ever-increasing population in the world, impacts that have affected the more famous areas of glacier melting (Alps, Andes etc. ), the warming of climate change as well as industrialization of people.
Bayfield Mud Company Team 8: : Ezra Bardo, Andrew Doucet, Kathleen Homsy & Courtney Orwick Operations Management Fall 2012 Professor Donald Sutton Background The Bayfield Mud Company produces and sells mudtreating agents to that are used in various drilling operations. Bayfields corporate offices and its largest plant are located in Orange, Texas. Issue Wet-land Drilling had filed a complaint that the 50 Pound bags of treating agents that it had just received from Bayfield were short-weight by approximately 5%. Bayfield indicated, however, that no changes had been made in the loading or palletizing procedures. Hence, Wet-Land randomly checked 50 of the bags and discovered that the average net weight was 47.51 pounds.
Throughout the past 40 million years our Earth has been in a continuous ice age. This period is considered an ice age because of the ongoing presence of an ice sheet that currently covers Antarctica. An ice age can be thought of as a period of time where the Earth’s climate is constantly reducing in temperature, which causes the formation of ice sheets and glaciers. This cooling of the Earth doesn’t happen all at once, it goes through cycles of warm and cold weather. The colder cycles are referred to as glacial periods and the warmer cycles are referred to as interglacial periods.
