About every 24 hours one hundred fifty to two hundred species of birds, insects, plants, and other mammals become extinct, and some of that is from strip mining because of the damage it does to the species habitats. Also strip mines make it easier for miners to extract coal, in some countries, like Australia, 80% of their mines are strip mines to compress the coal out of the earth for other human needs. In order for a miner to extract the most amount of coal and other ores, they need to remove the first few layers of the earth. The process is very harmful from the start to finish, with
How can America truly understanding the worth of Black lives if we ourselves don 't fully know our own worth? I ask this question because the students in the Whitehaven High School community has see that America has forgotten all of the contributions that Black live brought to the table by inventors such as : Elijah McCoy is best known for inventing lubrication devices used to make train travel more efficient, poets like as Paul Laurence Dunbar who is most famous for his poem We Wear the Mask ,and military soldiers like the United States ' first all-African-American regiment, the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry a troop of all volunteer soldiers.

Jurgis burns his hand while working at the steel mill, because he is a child, he’s not familiar with all the labor laws. There was a significant gap between laws on the record in corporate America and job enforcement. Technically speaking Jurgis as permitted to receive some help from the corporate company to compensate for his wounds.

The Yankees formed us up into a wagon train, planning to take us to City Point. On the way there, I thought about the Union prisons, which is where I was headed. I read from the newspapers that the prisons were filled to their limits with soldiers and most soldiers didn’t even live because they froze to death, had chills and fevers (which killed them), or they starved to death because of the terrible food. I hope what I read was not true because Ma, Sarah and Sam really needed me alive, not dead. To take my mind off of everything that had happened, I started to read my book of psalms out loud.
The story " Barn Burning" by author William Faulkner is using a biographical strategy because the author can relate to the main character (Sarty) in the story because he also had a bad relationship with his father (Snopes).
