This topic is about how shoes were made, where they first were made, and who they were made by. How did these shoes become a thing, what kinds of styles are there. These things affect us in everyday life, because we can 't go walking around barefoot on hot or rocky pavement. The earliest shoes are sandals. Most Native Americans went barefoot. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time and from culture to culture, with appearance originally being tied to function. "Shoes are also used as a item of decoration" (shoes).Basic sandals may consist of only a thin sole and simple strap. High fashion shoes may be made of very expensive materials in complex construction and sell for thousands of dollars a pair. Other shoes are for very specific…show more content…
How are snowflakes made? What causes snow? " The life of a snowflake begins high in earths atmosphere and if the snowflake is very lucky, it might reach the ground" (snowflake). A snowflake begins when a tiny dust or pollen particle comes into contact with water vapor high in earths atmosphere. The water vapor coats the tiny particle and freezes into tiny crystal of ice. This tiny crystal will be the "seed" from which a snowflake will grow. The molecules of water that each tiny ice crystal naturally arrange themselves into a hexagonal structure. The newly-formed ice crystal is heavier than the surrounding air and it begins falling. As it falls towards earth through humid air more water vapor freezes onto the surface of the tiny crystal. Although all snowflakes have a hexagon shape other details of their geometry can vary. These variations are produced by different temperature and humidity conditions through which the snowflakes fall. Some temperature/humidity combinations produce flakes with long needle-like arms. Other conditions produce flakes with wide flat arms and some other conditions can produce thin, branching arms. Vermont was the first person to capture photographs of snowflake images introduced many people to the astounding diversity of snow crystals. In 1951 scientist from an organization now called the International Association of Cryospheric sciences devised a classification system that…show more content…
Without the internet, what we do? What would the future look like? "The history of the internet begins with the developement of electronic computers in the 1950s" (music). Today the internet continues to grow, driven by ever greater amounts of online information, commerce, entertainment, and social networking. The internets takeover of the global communication landscape was almost instant in historical term: it only communicated 1% of the information flowing through two-way telecommunications networks in the year 1993, already 51% by 2000 and more than 97% of the telecommunicated information by 2007. Early computers had a central processing unit and remote terminals with limited exceptions, the earliest computers were connected directly to terminals used by individual users, typically in the same building or site. The issue of connecting seperate physical networks to form one logical network was the first pf many
