In the 1850’s, some pioneers began to choose to immigrate to Canada rather than the US. The land there was untamed and the terrain difficult compared to America, which had already been settled for around 200 years. The frontier life in Canada revolved around the basic needs. Pioneers built the country from the ground up, starting with simple log cabins. The long, cold winters and harsh wilderness kept it from being an overly popular frontier, and to this day, despite being larger than its southern neighbor, is over nine times less populous.
Someone says, “Are you ok?” I nod yes and they ski away. I look like Frosty the Snowman coming out of a blizzard in a ski parka. I have learned that sometimes you have to risk getting yourself hurt to save other people from harm. However, I also learned that it is really fun to fly through the air on my snowboard. Avoiding those skiers has allowed me to experience something I would have never done otherwise.
Since 1938, Arizona’s premier ski resort, Arizona Snowbowl, located at the base of the San Francisco Peaks just outside of Flagstaff, has been providing a different view of the Grand Canyon State (Granillo).

It was not just one single man who came up with the sport. When men from Europe came to North America they noticed that the natives were playing lacrosse which was very similar to their games back home and they used some of the principles of lacrosse in the creation of hockey. Another man who played a huge role in the creation of hockey was from Nova Scotia. His name was James Creighton and he brought all of his knowledge of ice hockey into Montreal, Canada where the first ever organized hockey game as we know it today was played. This man also decided that he wanted to try to play hockey indoors at the local ice skating rink, but he was scared that the ball would fly out of the rink and hurt somebody, so they took the cork bung from a beer barrel which was shaped like the hockey pucks we use today.

In Northern Italy in1994, two hikers came across the frozen remains of an ancient human. British geneticist Bryan Sykes was called in to confirm that the remains were in fact of an ancient European.

Few scientists but Sykes had ever used mitochondrial DNA because it was so newly discovered.
