First, changes in farming and agriculture over the years led to the conditions that caused the Dust Bowl and impacted the Great Plains. “Wind and drought alone did not create the Dust Bowl. Nature’s delicate balance of wind, rain, and grass had been disturbed by human settlement. Fifty years earlier, a strong protective carpet of grass had covered the Great Plains. The grass held moisture in the soil and kept the soil from blowing away (Holley).” Before the Great Plains were settled, its geography was covered in lush grasses that made it perfect for farming and raising livestock.
While early settlers claimed that these multitudes did not exist while the Indian population was thriving in the New World. (pg. 53) This was a direct example of how the Indians had a large effect on the control of prey in the environment. Other environmentalists observe how the Indians would use fire to control the brush and influence the grow of crops. These controlled burnings went on for hundreds of years and enabled the environment to grow and flourish under the watch and control of the
In the article Common Mistakes in Growing Alfalfa author Eddie Funderburg Describes several mistakes that people make when planting their first crop of alfalfa. These include mistakes in site selection, soil selection, seedbag preparation and planting, and remembering the alfalfa. When selecting a site, make sure to avoid hilly, rocky ground, shallow soil, and eroded soil. Most thriving alfalfa fields are located on a level, bottomland site with no potholes. If the planting site does not look like this, do not expect much from your crop.
I have recently read the book "The Great Fire". it is a book about how the great fire started and the stories of how people were affected by it. it was started when a man saw smoke and fire from a barn. he ran to it to save the animals in it. these fires continued due to the drought, which meant days without rain which caused the land to be hot and dry.
But not also Ireland was in a panic for the potato famine but also the other country’s that depended on the cash crop. The disease spread so rapidly, this was because of the international potato seed trade. When the potato blight first appeared there was very little concern due to the good year they had with the potato until October when the saw the potato was diseased. Soon the blight spread through the west of Ireland, but still people did not believe it would be a major issue until stored potato’s were found to be rotted. For, inevitably, it was the men with the smallest holdings, striving after self-suffciency on meager pactes of soil, whp devoted there land most completely to potato cultivation the highland ptato famine in thof the 1840s .
The heat has driven them crazy.” He was surprised they attacked us. He said, “They usually won’t come near people.” So off we flew away in the sunset. THE END “Oh wait! What about my car?” I said. Then there was the sound of an huge, loud explosion far off behind us.
One of these was pretty simple, just carry flowers around to purify your own air, but that never seemed to be enough, so you might want to take another of these precautions. Another prevention was to go live in the sewers. This is logical because it smells so much in sewers that the disease would never be able to work its way into the putrid, thick air. A prevention that has been proven to work is fire. At the time of the plague outburst, Pope Clement VI built a fire around him, keeping all the foul plague air away from him.
Town The town has old and rusty homes falling apart with trash scattered around. Out in the front yards of some buildings, junk cars and trucks are lawn decorations. Roads are full of potholes that the tires of cars dip into. The road is especially terrible when it snows and the roads are frozen solid. The traffic lights are turned off and it is extremely difficult to drive in this weather.
Great Plains Daily Locust Attack: As harvest time is coming close, many farmers are preparing for it, drying out wheat and preparing cattle to be transferred. Everything was going well for the farmers of the Great Plains, they might even have a good season. Then, a large dark cloud appeared, covering the sun, locusts. Some say you could hear them before you saw them, their loud screeches being heard. Something wrong was going to happen, we just didn’t know it yet.
3) Elementary school teacher, Diane Holtam, explains how the racist myth that all Asians are good at math can affect Asian students in a harmful way. Teachers tend to help Asian students less at math because they assume they are excellent at math and can get their education on their own without any help. This may not be the case. We need to start realizing this, and treating the students as individuals, because they are their own person. Lyness, Arcy.
