Because of its simplicity, a greywater recycling system is the best way to preserve and recycle water. It is a manageable system that can be operated by all people and even businesses around the world. Greywater can be “used untreated, or it can be treated to varying degrees to reduce nutrients and disease-causing pathogens” (“Pros and Cons of Grey Water”). The appropriate uses of greywater depend on both the source of greywater and the level of treatment. A greywater recycling system can “reduce one’s water usage by about 50%” so in theory, one could potentially cut their water bills in half as well as reduce their water footprint ("What Are the Benefits of Water Conservation?”).
The Erie Canal was the start of great economic growth in America, but specifically New York. As Document 1A states, “By 1825, the Erie Canal gave another boost to New York’s already busy seaports.”(Doc 1.) This lets us know that although the seaports in New York were fairly busy, the Erie Canal made it one of the leading seaports in America. The Canal not only boosted the seaports, but it had a lot more success than dirt roads used. Using the canal, you can get to where you need to be within 8 days, rather than 21 days in a wagon.
Source #6 points out that, “people going to Djenne to trade, reaps a large amount of profit. So because of Djenne, many caravans came to Timbuktu as well. But because, new caravans came to Timbuktu, it was more people to tax, which also gave them a large amount of profit. The third reason to why geography was the main factor for creating wealth and power in the West African Empires, is because of the trade routes. The West African Empires were located near the Niger River.
Ancient Egypt had decent quality transportation but Ancient Rome had better quality equipment and overall better forms of transportation. Ancient Egypt used boats as their main transportation because they had a lot of water near them and the Nile River was called the highway for Ancient Egypt. The Romans built over 53,000 miles of paved roads stretching from Scotland to Eastern Europe to Mesopotamia, which in present days is Iraq to North Africa. Being high on the social pyramid and owning a lot of boats was the same as being in Ancient Rome and having a lot of chariots and litters. Both Ancient Egypt and Ancient Rome used their feet and walking sticks that elderly people used when they are old and can’t see very far.

Also most routes only have one bus provider due to only a limited number being a viable option as there can be only a limited amount of providers therefore it is a natural monopoly. 2. Analyse the barriers to entry and exit in the local passenger market. (12 marks) Barriers to entry or exit is when there are obstacles that prevent new competitors from easily entering or exiting an industry/area of business. The bus market has low barriers to entry due to the ease of offering an alternative service, this is due to start-up costs
Overall, during the transportation revolution, construction of turnpikes, roads, canals, and railroads led to the market economy expansion, an increased population in America and alternations of the physical landscape of America. As American factories and farms started to produce more goods businessmen and legislators began to create a faster and cheaper way to get goods distributed to consumers. Around 1820, Americans began to build canals and steamboats, railroad, and extend roads linking the Atlantic Coast with new states in the Trans Appalachian west. Canals and Steamboats shrunk the distance of carrying goods from one place to another and could haul the most cargo for transportation. A well-known waterway called the Erie Canal connected the Great Lakes region to the Atlantic Ocean and cost 7 million dollars.
This ocean was also home to a ¨Monsoon Season¨, that helped sailors get across ocean because of the predictability of the wind. That is what it is most known for cheap trade because of low demand from ease of travel. This connection of trade routes included Swahili coast cities, Islamic empires in the Middle East, India, China, Southeast Asia, and did not include Europe. Many of the things exported were ivory, timber, and books because of the wide variety of needs in these lands. 2.
Traveling from long, previously thought of as daunting places was made cheaper, quicker, and simple through railroads.There was a creation of a highly competitive shipping industry due to advancements of steam powered machines. The use of steamboats had increased. Europeans and Asians were now able to cross the Pacific and the Atlantic Ocean to the United States of America because of the development of large, steam-powered ocean liners. Because immigrants are capable of moving to their new country in faster and larger numbers, the population quickly surged. Many people were promptly moving to the cities of the east and midwest.

Traverse City Michigan is a small town in Northern Michigan, with a port, an airport, a rail system running through it, and lots of roads. While there is most likely the most freight carried through trucking on the roads, I would like to talk about the shipping industry. Because Traverse City is located with access to the Lake Michigan there is obviously a great deal of materials shipped over the water. Water is the cheapest, besides pipeline, of the 5 major transportation modes; if a city is located on the water it makes sense to take advantage of it. According to the Michigan Department of Transportation in 2009 the port of Traverse City transported somewhere between 100,000 and 900,000 tons of freight.
What new technologies enabled the growth of interregional trade networks and agricultural development (be specific)? The invention of paper money, the compass, and larger trading ships helped grow interregional trade networks such as the Indian Ocean Trade Route and the Mediterranean Trade Route. Paper money helped trade because it is easier to produce and lighter to trade with than traditional metal coins. The invention of the compass let traders out at sea sail without fear of getting lost, which helped ships get to their destinations quicker than before. Large trading ships, like the Chinese junks, allowed more goods to be transported at a time since they can carry so much more across the ocean.
During this time period, transportation by water was the fastest and the cheapest way to carry mass products (“Industrial Revolution Research”)(“Ransdell”). The shipping industry carried coal, lumber, ore, cotton and other products to different areas (“Inland Waterways”). Cities and small towns relied on the waterways to develop their economy, such as St. Louis, Cincinnati and others. The waterways enabled the people such as merchants, traders, and explorers to the new land and lives. Thriving places where waterways were lacking new canals were constructed, for instance, the Erie Canal (“River Towns, River Networks”).
In this case Appalachian Mountains protect the colony from cold and dry north wind but if these mountains did not exist in North Carolina it would have been twice as cold and very dry. John Lawson agrees, "As to the climate, it is very healthful;...neither are we ever visited by Earthquakes." The Climate is ideal for growing crops and farming. Gulf Stream smoothes the climate that help plants with the transition of seasons. Winters are not so cold, frosts do not remain on the ground for more than 2-3 days.
