northeastern Africa in-between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. Some countries that border Egypt are Sudan and Libya. The one main source of water in Ancient Egypt was the Nile River. Ancient Egypt started in 2920 B.C.E. The Nile River helped the crops in Ancient Egypt, for example, papyrus. This got me thinking, how did the Nile River shape Ancient Egypt? There were three ways the Nile shaped Ancient Egypt. They were the seasons, the geography, and their civilization.
Killing an estimated 1,833 people, Hurricane Katrina was one of the deadliest hurricanes to ever hit the United States. The flooding alone caused massive devastation and destruction. Millions of people lost their homes and all their possessions. This flood was horrific, but imagine a flood so great that it destroyed all of humanity. This great flood occurs in the stories of Noah, Utnapishtim, and Deucalion. The flood stories from Noah and the Flood, the Epic of Gilgamesh, and Deucalion, are all similar but have unique aspects.

The flood lasted from the beginning of April, through May, June and July and finally ended in August.

Every civilization throughout history has their ups and downs. What if these ups and downs could all be connected back to one main factor, to one influence? Throughout history, it can be noticed that the location of a civilization affects the shape of its culture, economy, trade, and security of its borders. It defines which societies rise to power and which lose power. Geography influences history in many ways, as can be seen in the Indus Valley, Greece, and Aksum civilizations. The Indus Valley built large mud walls and drainage systems to lessen the effects of massive flooding. In Greece, many wars occurred between city states due to the differences in culture caused by separation by mountain ranges. In Aksum, they utilized their access to different bodies of water to become the head of trade. Each of these civilizations utilized their geography and its advantages, but also eventually fell victim to its disadvantages.
The Stone Age was the first known period where humans began using rock and other nonmetallic materials such as bones and leather to create tools.
Invasive, alien species, those which colonise, expand and out compete native species (Smith & Smith, 2009), are a major threat to our habitats, terrestrial and aquatic species, and biodiversity. Agricultural and leisure industries are affected as well as conservation welfare and the continued wellbeing of man, flora and fauna. Whole ecosystems can be distorted and the economic cost of awareness, prevention and eradication systems is substantial. Most invasive species have been introduced by mandeliberately or otherwise. As an island, Ireland has been subjected to less invasive species than larger nearby land masses e.g. Europe, but islands have a less diverse species population and are therefore more vulnerable when invaded. As international movements increase, risks spread. Some non-native species are not obviously detrimental on introduction, but become so in the future and intensive monitoring is required.
The environment in which one grows up in impacts their development both physically and mentally. This is a part of setting which includes the time period as well.

The rapid destruction of woodlands or removal of trees from forests is known as deforestation. Every year, vast areas of forests are cleared to make way for agriculture and development.
There were many things that simply melted away and other things that were ruined by the extensive and voluminous water damage, as local firemen fought to extinguish the fire. When the time came that we could go into our home, the sights were unbelievable and certainly didn 't look like "our home!"
There are two unique landforms in China. One is Gobi Desert, and other one is Tibetan highlands.
Describe three of the environmental influences an organization faces. Provide one example of each and describe how an organization is impacted, either positively or negatively, by each:
By the year 2025, the Philippines is believed to be brought to a water crisis if no new sources of water are developed or found to meet the growing demand of the citizens. (Sapnu, R., Balabo, D., & Cervantes, D., 2007) "There is a Japan International Cooperation Agency study that says that if we will not conserve water, there may be some problems. But of course we can always start conserving now and look for other sources," Lopez (2013) said. Studies have shown how water conservation and appropriate water utilization are significant as early as today.
