The court has an eight-foot chain-link fence around it, and is ten yards from the property line next to Logan’s property. Since the tennis court was built, many balls cross over to Logan’s property. One day, a tennis ball traveled over the fence and split Logan’s prize-winning dahlias. Upon seeing the damage, Logan yelled, “keep your damn balls to yourself they are ruining my flowers.” Logan does not recall hearing any response from the neighbors. Logan’s garden is important to him because he grows flowers competitively for showing.
Some people use screwdrivers, a sharpened stick, or a short hand grubbing tool (Keith930). Harvest season for ginseng in Kentucky begins on September 1 and ends on December 1. People can beginning selling moist ginseng root on September 1, but cannot sell dried ginseng until September 15. It takes around 300 ginseng roots to make one pound of dried ginseng (Kevin Litman). Ginseng root is the most valuable part of the pant (Kevin Litman).
In order to expand their profit, the East India Company began exporting tea to the United States. Like in England, big taxes were imposed upon tea imports which is known as one of the several contributions to the cause of the Boston Tea Party. The East India Company brought the first shipment of green tea to Amsterdam around the early 1600s and was the introduced to France around 1636. The popularity of tea among the French population thrived from 1636 to around 148 but was not too extensively popular after that. It wasn’t until around 1830 that England thought of India as a proper place to grow and harvest tea.
El Salvador is a very densely populated country and it’s known as the land of volcanoes.My favorite thing about paragraph two is that El Salvador is the smallest Latin American country.My favorite thing about paragraph 34 is that in El Salvador the temperature there is always above 70 and sometime it's in the 60’s.My favorite things about paragraph four is that they cleared the forestland to make more room for agriculture and that several different species of trees like the balsa,cedar,coconut all grow across the coast.El Salvador is known as the country that steals the heart of those travelers as they visit central America.El Salvador is the only country that doesn't have a coastline in the Caribbean sea.In El Salvador Coffee, sugar, corn, rice, shrimp, and beef are the main agricultural products.El Salvador is interesting because,of its geography,weather,plants,animals,people and
The alternative crop plant that I have chosen to write about is Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa). Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) is a flowering plant that comes from the amaranth family. The crop is an annual plant that is usually about one to two meters high. The stem is branched or unbranched and could be green, red, or purple. The panicles arise from the top of the plant along the stem.
Avocado is a very popular fruit around the world. The plants from avocado (Persea americana, Miller) are native from Central/North America (Mexico) from where it spread to various regions. Their ripe fruits are consumed on a large scale in the world and have healthy properties. Some studies have shown that a diet enriched with avocado fruit lowers total cholesterol and low-density lipoproteins levels without changing high-density lipoprotein levels [1-5]. The seeds from avocado constitute a high percent in this fruits (13-25%) depending of varieties, which commonly are discarded as industrial waste .
Gatorade was first developed in 1960 by a small group of research physicians from the University of Florida with the goal of determining a method that could improve hydration and athletic performance of American football players during humid games. The researchers determined two reasons that contribute to fatigue during performance: A loss of body electrolytes from excessive sweating and depleted muscle carbohydrate stores. From this information, the researchers invented a carbohydrate-electrolyte drink specific for these players and successfully aided many teams in winning more games. The researchers named it “Gatorade” after the mascot of their university football team; the Florida Gators. Gatorade became one of the first isotonic sports drinks in the market.
According to Cornell University in the article “what is Agricultural Biotechnology?” An example for the effectiveness of GMOs are the Papayas that were hit with papaya ring spot virus which devastated the crops by 40 percentage reduction in only five years. Due to the genetic engineering, scientists developed two varieties of papayas that were completely resistant to the virus, and now these new papayas are growing in Hawaii. Klumper states that genetic modification technology has increased crop yields by 22 percent and farmer profits by 68 percent. GMOs have been widely used especially by the poorest
The flu epidemic of 1918 caused American mortality rates to drop down by 60% and the public expected for a vaccine to come but the developers of the vaccine did not have the correct gene to use for the vaccine. The virus was finally detected in the 1930s in the midst of the Great Depression. However, the vaccine for influenza did not come until World War II. In 1944, the vaccine for influenza was first introduced to the Armed Forces Epidemiological Board and the soldiers were the first to be vaccinated against the flu. Civilians later on got the vaccine in 1945.
In 1937 Roosevelt addressed the nation in his second inaugural address, stating, "I see one-third of the nation ill-housed, ill-clad, ill-nourished. . .the test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." FDR 's Shelterbelt Project begins. The project called for large-scale planting of trees across the Great Plains, stretching through a 100-mile wide zone from Canada to northern T.X, to protect the land from erosion.
However, they did not find a significant change in monarch egg destiny on non-agricultural milkweed in the Midwest (10). In addition to being a concerning fact in itself, this data demonstrates the correlation of pesticides to the loss of agricultural milkweed. It is clearly visible that a vast area of the U.S. cropland is sprayed with glyphosate, much of which interrupts monarch migratory paths. From 1992-2012, 2.6 billion pounds of glyphosate was sprayed in the U.S. alone (11). Glyphosate is also the widest used pesticide in the world, despite the damage it does to milkweed and the potential carcinogenic effects on humans (11) (12) (13)
