First, in “The lorax” an environmental issue was the air quality. In the beginning of the story the land had clean air, healthy trees and a sustainable environment but soon turned into a lonely place covered in pollution and the lifeless haze of abandonment. Once-ler in “the lorax” cut down all of the trees to make his thneeds and didn’t replant the truffula tree seeds. The same thing happened on Easter Island, the Polynesians used the Hauhau and Toromiro trees to help transport their gigantic stone heads across the islands and soon all of the trees were gone. By doing that, thee land in “the lorax” and in “Easter Island” ended up empty and lonely.
1000 and 1500.Hornando de Soto was the first European explorer to come into contact with the Cherokees, when he arrived in their territory in 1540. Modern scholars and champions of human rights have described this event as one of the most notorious genocides during the 19th Century. Unfortunately, the Native Americans were treated very poorly when the white man arrived. As time went on it only got worse for them. In the 1830’s America was highly influenced by the Manifest Destiny which was the territorial expansion of the United States across North America towards the Pacific Ocean.
The drastic drop in population, created a dramatically increase in wages, a fall in food supplies, change in medicine, and an undetermined mindset of religion. As food prices began to drop, and the need for food supplies decreased, landowners where finding it more and more difficult to make ends meets. These effects led to an end in the once great manorial system of Europe, and adapted peasants from farmers to the urban life. Doctors treating the disease soon became infected, and killed off most physicians treating this disease. This caused an awakening in the medical field, as physicians where viewed as a failure.
The wooden people were slightly more fruitful; however, they had no emotion, and therefore could not worship their creators accordingly. Hurricane and Serpent decided that it was time to discard of the wooden people, so the two flooded the Earth, and those who survived were exterminated by monsters like Bloodletter, Gouger of Faces, Crunching Jaguar, and Tearing Jaguar. On the third attempt to create a successful human being, Hurricane and Serpent made a few small adjustments to the Earth before they started again. The new race was created out of a “maize paste” (Wren 1), and these people were successful. In “The Story of Creation”, after Juhwertamahkai added more to his world, he went on to create the perfect humans, or so he thought.
Many of the natives died due to Columbus. Him and his crew forced many of them into labor because they did not have the gold or the spices he came there for. He brought some of them back on ships for slavery and many of them died on the way due to being malnourished by Columbus and his crew. While Columbus and his crew were back with the natives, they killed the natives that refused to give their items and jewelry away, So the king and
The Odyssey states that the men had pillaged Cicones and then they were attacked so they lost many men. In The Odyssey “We lost six benches of men” (Homer 63) shows that the Odysseus’s men were all foolish and they learned a valuable lesson on listening and they would keep that forever. Also, in “The Ugly Duckling” the duck says “how thankful I am that even a dog won’t bite
By the 1940s, nearly half of the population of Naga tribe had converted to Chris- tianity helping them to develop a modernized nature by adapting education, medicine, and a peaceful religion. Dancing and drum playing was banned and all the heads that they hunted were buried making them to become more peaceful than ever before. Christianity gave Naga tribes a common bond and language “English” but there was also a negative impact of this that Naga tribe lost the traditional culture that provoked the identity crisis that is present to this day. Furthermore, there were certain criticism that was raised by some people of Naga tribe such as a legendary Naga of the Konyak tribe nicknamed Khaopa refused to accept a re- ligion that would force him to abandoned Naga traditions and bury the skulls that symbolized his power. However; step by step the things were getting better.
Jonestown was supposed to be a paradise and a perfect miniature society for Reverend Jim Jones and his loyal followers, but after only one year of a working civilization, horror would strike, ending the lives of nearly one thousand of Jones’s hopeful followers. Jonestown was an independent society located deep in the jungles of Guyana in South America. This perfected society was created for people who did not like how the United States was governed. The Jonestown tragedy has been compared to Adolf Hitler’s inhumane Holocaust and even the gruesome massacres of Charles Manson because all three of these catastrophes were due to one person’s need for dominance. Jim Jones opened his first People’s Temple in Indianapolis, and then Jones later moved
Some people began to believe their creator was punishing humans who were displeasing, so the Great Flood become part of the origin myth. Around 4000 BCE, environment conditions finally settled into the pattern we see today (Origin myths, 37). In the Epic of Gilgamesh, Ea, the cleverest of the gods, warned Utnapishtim that the gods would be sending the great flood to wipe out humankind. Utnapishtim then builds a boat to save as many people as he can and every living creature. After seven days, Utnapishtim released a dove and raven to find dry land.
However, the lack of material covered on the Vietnam War further proves that the war remains an event Americans attempt to forget. In America today, the Vietnam War continues to be looked at negatively, which provides further proof of why we must learn about American troops’ ethical lapses in war and how this affected world power and human rights. In the My Lai Massacre, platoon leader LT William Calley Jr. and his men of Charlie Company murdered a village and gang-raped the population. It was not until helicopter pilot; Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) Hugh Thompson landed his helicopter and stopped the killing of the innocent civilians by Calley and his men. This event is referred as, “the most shocking episode of the Vietnam War.” By adding the My Lai Massacre to the Naval Vignettes students will meet the required learning objective of identifying factors that shape change over time.
He found some of his countrymen and asked what was going on and they told him they are being carried to the white people’s country to work for them. The boat lacked fresh air and it was so hot and unbearable that people became sick and died. When the boat reached the Barbados, the white men examined them and told them they would be put to work. When it was time to sell the slaves, the buyers rushed and picked the ones they liked best. The slaves got separated making it the last time they may ever see each other
Birds across the United States are disappearing after towns are sprayed with pesticides. Dutch elm disease, a fungal disease brought to the U.S. from Europe, has invaded many cities in New England causing a need for abundant DDT spraying. The spraying of the Elm trees poisoned earthworms, which in turn lead to a drastic decrease in the number of robins that eat them. The DDT does not directly kill the robins, but it makes them sterile meaning they will be the last generation of robins. Many other species of birds die when trees are sprayed with insecticides because insects are their primary source of food.
