All the chemical tests we did prove that the Conodoguinet Creek is healthy and not polluted. All the data I collected about the velocity of the creek says that the deeper you get into the creek, the faster the water will move. When we got to location two of the creek it was the deepest and the creek was also moving the fastest at that point. When we got to location 5 which was the part of the creek that had the shallowest water, the speed of the water was slow. I also know that the deeper you get into the water the faster it will get because when I put my data into a data plot graph it showed a positive correlation between the depth of the water and the speed of the surface
A costal ecosystem restoration program was invented by Congress in the Water Resources Development Act of 2007. The state is expected to spend nearly $1.2 billion over the next three years on protection and restoration projects. They have yet to come up with the money, but they have been thinking of solutions. One solution they have been thinking of is the sediment required to replenish the wetlands will come from land scattered throughout the basin. Even though sediments are crucial to rebuilding the wetlands of the Mississippi River Delta, additional nutrients flowing through river diversion could potentially impair inland waters of the state.
In the short story, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”, written by Ambrose Bierce, he tells the story of white southerner during the American Civil War who has committed a crime against the Union and is punished to death by hanging. Throughout the short story Bierce takes us the readers on a journey through northern Alabama filled with suspense and foreshadowing. Through the entire short story Bierce uses many different types of foreshadowing to anticipate the fate of the main character. Bierce foreshadows the ending of the story in three ways, 1.) Peyton Farquhar’s heightened senses, 2.) at the commencement of part III he expresses that Peyton Farquhar is already dead, and 3.) Bierce uses inmediares to convey foreshadowing to us the readers.
To begin, the history of the Florida Everglades would amaze you. Imagine having no fresh water to drink or do anything with. “The construction and population increase in the Everglades upset is fragile ecosystem, and cut off the flow of fresh water to the Everglades.” As stated on page 113 and paragraph 4.
The Little Rock Nine changed the face of segregation in the entire country, and it was the help of nine African American students. These students were denied enrollment from the Governor of Arkansas at the time, Orval Faubus; and then later was overturned by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, when it made national attention. They continued their fight through the process until granted what they deserved in the beginning.
John Wells was driving near the mouth of Middle Fork when his car was covered in black wastewater. He saw that the valley below the dam was covered in an ominous layer of black waste. Wells tried to warn the residents of Buffalo Creek of the impending disaster but was unable to use the phone due to power outages. He was powerless to warn Buffalo Creek of the impending disaster. The water raged towards Buffalo Creek until the wastewater finally emptied into the Guyandotte River fifteen miles later.
The Seneca-Cayuga Nation did not start as a whole. They were two different groups that decided to come together and be one nation. The Seneca-Cayuga Nation is a relatively small tribe that is located in Oklahoma that came from New York State, yet they still own and operate many businesses throughout the Empire State.
Title: The Sand Creek Massacre Research Question: What were the reasons behind the gold rush in Colorado in the 19th century and the war atrocities committed by United States Government towards the culmination of the Sand Creek Massacre? Though Colorado was not yet a state in the 1950s, the gold prospects within the territories which were still under Kansas at the time led to an influx of emigrants in a land that was originally occupied by Native Indians. The Colorado gold rush to this day is considered to have been the largest in the United States in the 19th century forming an intricate description of the country’s history in general. Following the discovery of gold in 1859 thousands of people descended towards the Rocky Mountains of Colorado,
How Healthy is the Conodoguinet Creek? Member of Enola Community: I have conducted an experiment on whether the Conodoguinet Creek is either polluted or healthy. The Conodoguinet Creek can get polluted by livestock. The livestock could possibly use the creek as a water source or as a restroom.
For years I have dreamt about getting into my favorite college. The rush I would get as my school’s football team ran out of the tunnel. All the new people I would meet that would become my friends for life. It is now November of my senior year and I have decided to go to Colorado State University. I am without a doubt that Colorado State is the school I dreamt about all these years. Growing up, I wanted a place that challenged me physically, academically, and spiritually. I believe the Colorado State Honors Program would be a great fit for me.
phonetic alphabet was created by The wooden people vs. Creek Myth, “a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon.” (Now that is a dictionary version of what myth is and it makes it seem like myths are just stories that people made in the past and believed in.) Although most myths were made to explain the world around people, myths also have themes or lessons in them that can teach people lots of things even in today’s societies.
The state of Washington is home to a host of different communities. Kittitas County encompasses one such populace. Located in the center of the state, Kittitas County is comprised of several small, but budding communities. The 2,297 square miles and 40,915 residents it comprises span from the top of Snoqualmie Pass in the Cascade Mountains to the Columbia River, with the Yakima River and Interstate 90 running through the heart of the region (Read, 2012). The county seat can be found in Ellensburg, the county’s largest town. Ellensburg has a population of 18,174 including more than 9,000 students attending Central Washington University (Read, 2012). With its small towns scattered throughout, Kittitas County looks vastly different from the counties that house the state’s bigger cities of Seattle, Tacoma, and Spokane, but more closely resembles the demographics of the bulk of the state. Mainly bucolic, 44% of the county’s people live in unincorporated areas relative to the
I will never forget that encounter the intense sun, the endless horizon, the infinite shades of blue that dissolved any boundary between sky and trees.The views were like swimming into a kaleidoscope, deceptively plain "Lake Winaukee" sign on the outside, but a show of colors on the inside, waiting to shock and, mesmerize me. Those colors! Sails on the horizon covered the lake; streaks of sunlight illuminated them, the swaying wildlife creating a dance of rhythm. Beautiful, preserved life synchronizing every movement with the camp sight creating one living entity. As I finish my 15 minutes of observations at camp, I realized I was ready for my first padded practice of the year.
In the 19th century United States, outbreaks of diseases were widespread, labor and ethical issues were rampant, and women were still being treated as second class citizens. To escape the problems in their society, some tried to change legislation, some left the country all together, and some tried to create their own utopia, separate from their nation. The Oneida colony was one of these many utopian settlements that sprang up in 1800s United States. Other communities were short-lived, lasting a decade at the most, and had few members. However, Oneida lasted over thirty years, and had approximately 300 residents at its peak. Oneida was one of the first American settlements to be started by a native-born American, as opposed to a European, primarily
The Yadkin River is one of the longest rivers in North Carolina. The Yadkin Pee Dee River Basin is North Carolina’s second largest basin. It is very important to a variety of habitats and has been the site of human civilization for at least 12,000 years, earning it the nickname of the ‘‘Tigris and Euphrates of the Carolinas.’’ It was formerly called the Sapona River, after the people that originally inhabited its banks, until the name was changed between 1709 and 1733.
