On August 29, 1911 Ishi, the last walked on the Sierra wilderness and into American culture. Ishi was treated less as a human-being, as his name was slandered by the San Francisco Call Article, which was not agreeable. This article describe Ishi by stating “with an assumption of stern dignity, yet trembling from burnoff hair to bare feet, the last of the cavemen took his seat among the crimson plush draperies and the glittering electric lights of the large box.”(San Francisco Call, Ishi Calls the Orpheum, The Heaven of the White People, Doc 4) That statement that the author, Grant Wallace made in some way tried to destroy Ishi humanity, which is to do to another human being.
Mansa Musa set off on his hajj and traveled thousands of miles through deserts, and strange cities to get to Mecca.

In the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution brought many changes to Europe. While some of these changes, such as light, coal, and more jobs, benefitted the continent and set it towards many of the advances that put us where we are today, many of the changes at the time lead to miserable people within the city.

In addition, people were having many children in order to bring more income to the family, forcing their children to work at as little as the age of three.

The Vietnam war is known as the longest war in the U.S. history. It was situated in Vietnam, a country located in the southeast of China, during the cold war. Vietnam was a French colony and like in most colonies, the natives (Vietnamese people) were not treated right; Ho Chi Minh, that later became north Vietnam leader, asked for help to western countries, which was denied. The Soviet Union offered to help Vietnam, however, in order to do so they had to become communists, the country was divided into North Vietnam (communist) and south Vietnam (democratic), eventually North Vietnam wanted to take over South Vietnam.

The unification of Western Europe was met with opinions that were largely motivated by a nation’s own economic and political interests.
It is quite surreal that one can survive for two years in the wilderness. On the rafts that drifted from Panfilo de Narvaez’s ship, there were many people who did not survive. Those people became weak and they lost their minds. The amount of people remaining was four in a year, and one of the four was Cabeza de Vaca. Then that leads to the question: How did Cabeza de Vaca survive? Cabeza de Vaca survived because of his success as a healer, his wilderness skills, and most importantly his respect for Native Americans.
Britain’s forced introduction of opium in 1825 in China had devastating effects on its population and economy.
It walked over to my bed and brought me downstairs into the basement. The thing sat me down and tied me to a chair and brought out a large tray of tools, there is no escape. I felt my teeth being ripped out, it started with the back. During this process a sound alarm went off, the entity vanished, and security ran thro the doors. Suddenly I noticed the wrench was in my hands, my 6 teeth scattered around the floor. Jamison again walked me back to my room. She sat me down on my bed and asked me, “Kelley what happened back there ,why would you rip your own teeth out.” I said to her in my voice that was filled with cotton “It it it did it to me the girl, the man, the thing did it it not me”. Like any sensible person she didn't believe me. That morning I was ordered to be put in a straight jacket, in a large cushion room, and be hand fed every 3 hours. I felt like a prisoner or even worse an animal. Finally by the end of the night I was able to enter my room again to sleep. It happened again, I awoke to not scratching, not the thing breathing over my bed, but the door left open with Janison keys in the lock. I walked out of the door into the long hallway and began to walk around the asylum.I saw a large window

Why do we feel? We feel based on cause and effect relationship between people and their environment. This relationship has decides how we make judgments and critical thoughts. In Barbara Frederickson 's “love 2.0” she explains the chemical imbalance that happens when humans are loved or falling in love, the same rules for love can be applied to motions in general. In Malcolm Gladwell’s “The Power of Context” he explains the change in human behavior based on the environments that they are in. Together these two texts can explain how emotions affect human judgment and critical thought. The cause and effect relationship between people and their environment allows for emotion to come in the process
That room was a bit strange. It was very spacious and there were many sword-wielding statues on the left and right wall. On the other end of the room, there were many pictures drawn, perhaps depicting some kind of story. Such place was not unfamiliar with me. I had encountered many rooms like that one on other tombs and pyramids. Therefore, I shouldn’t feel anything strange. However, that room was a bit different. When I entered it, I had this feeling that something was off.
It is an unusually cold morning in February. My alarm clock goes off around 6:00 AM. I lay there for a moment, dreading the long day ahead. As soon as I build up enough will, I drag myself out of bed and hop in the shower. The hot water feels wonderful since it is about 30 degrees Fahrenheit outside. Unwillingly, I get out and put on my plain maroon T-Shirt, ripped blue jeans, and black converse. After I brush my hair and put on a small amount of makeup, I grab my keys and head out the door at about 6:30 AM. As I am driving, I notice that the roads are strangely barren and empty. I brush it off and blame it on the gloomy and miserable conditions outside.
