My grandfather was an immigrant that migrated from Yemen in 1970 and was working in a farm in Fresno CA. He was a grape farmer working from 6 am to 7 pm almost more than 13-hours a day his salary was $2.56 an hour from that salary he had to support his family that was still living in Yemen. Many migrant farm workers who pick these fruits travel across the country and cross borders to fill the agriculture jobs in the U.S that U.S citizens are not willing to take. (McKenzie, 2015). Agriculture jobs is not an easy job, but these migrant farmworkers are willing to fill these physical exhausting jobs because of the economic hardship, and the lack of jobs in the there country, therefore, courtiers that have these immigrant farmworkers should recognize immigrants for their hard work.
In Italy, the central part of the empire, stood the city of Rome. Back when Rome was just a small village along the banks of the Tiber river, its geography gave it many advantages.

They would help their neighbors if they needed to build a barn or if they had had a week harvest. They wouldn’t use African slaves because the farms were either too small or too poor.
In ancient history Romans have always been the dominant force that would build itself back up and strengthen into a major civilization for hundreds of years to come. Although, what a lot of people don’t know is how the Romans initially began or perceived to be created as a people that was born from mythological stories that tied into their own culture at the time. Titus Livius (Livy) was an historian that wrote many books on the history of Rome, but today we will only go through an English translation from 1919 of Livy’ first book. We will be discussing what happened (what was written down as the origin of Rome), some interesting points in the text, and analyze the way Livy wrote/structured his work. Let’s start with a summary of what the book is about.
Being built in the 70’s and 80’s A.D., the Colosseum is one of the oldest standing structures to this day. One of the many reasons it is still standing today is because of its architecture. Much thought went into the construction of the Colosseum so that it would be a symbol of Rome known all over the world. Some of the most brilliant architects and engineers of the time were hired to help make the Colosseum outstanding. It took around eight years and 100,000 prisoners to build the Colosseum.
Transition. With the rivers located just by ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, both civilizations’ culture depended on agriculture, and were formed around agricultural communities which supplied them with food. In Egypt, the annual flooding of the Nile contributed to their development in agriculture, while Mesopotamians depended on the Euphrates river, which was less dependable than the Nile because of its unpredictable flooding. The flooding of the two rivers in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia left a fertile layer of soil, making it easier to plant crops and allowing both communities to depend on their rivers for

Transitioning to America meant they would be buying all of life 's necessities now. They no longer had land to live off of, but rather instead small tenements.
