In 1324 CE, Musa, a Muslim ruler, decided to begin his pilgrimage to Mecca, called the Hajj, which is the fifth pillar of Islam. Mansa Musa’s visit to Cairo, Egypt during his Hajj to Mecca had an incredibly negative impact on the economy in Egypt for over a decade. Mahmud Kali, a native scholar and Islamic judge of Timbuktu, provided insight into Mansa Musa’s initial reason for deciding to set out on his pilgrimage to Mecca: Muhammad Quma, a scholar, had told Kali that “the Mali-koy Kankan Musa had killed his mother, Nana Kankan, by mistake.

Thousands of Americans flew in an airplane for the first, and some for the only, time. People learned that the airplane was not just limited to destruction, by bombing, from the air, but that it was a machine with great potential economic impact.”)- http://uss-bennington.org/history-turningpoints.html Entrepreneurs would rent a landing strip and then hire a pilot, get permits and then charge passengers $1 per minute of flying time. Before world war 1, planes were rare, and you were lucky if you had seen one.

In part, natural causes and human activity attribute to climate changes. Although, for over one hundred years, meteorologists have kept records of the various temperature, climate, and weather changes in cities, due to these two attributions, climate changes remain unpredictable at times. Weather forecasting represents an interesting yet unpredictable element in our lives; therefore, South Texas serves as a perfect example of the distinct meteorological conditions that cause concern to Texas as a whole. For the purpose of this paper, the focus will be on the changes in weather and climate of sub-tropical steppe and semi-arid brush-land of South Texas. More specifically, the emphasis will be on two major cities in the Coastal Bend of South Texas: Corpus Christi and Galveston.

Civilizations in Africa and the Americas had very different experiences concerning trade, government and economic opportunities. Axum, emerging at around 50 CE, and Meroe, flourishing in 300 BCE, both appearing on the eastern half of Africa, had connections to the Eurasian empires and large domesticated animals to use in their specialized, imperial economies, while civilizations such as Maya, materializing cultural achievements in 250 CE, and Teotihuacan, developing in 150 BCE, had very little acculturation and no pastoral opportunities. Although Meroe, Axum, Maya and Teotihuacan had several differences including Meroe and Axum’s single, imperial monarch and extensive trading connections in comparison to Maya and Teotihuacan’s elite centered
