The resources they collected helped Egyptian lives. The Nile’s resources were useful and beneficial to the Egyptian population. In conclusion, the gifts of the Nile was very important to the survival and civilization of the Egyptians. The Nile provided numerous resources such as fish, water and transportation, that help Expand the Egyptian population. The annual Nile overflow resulted in silt which built delta that help increased land and provided fertile soil for cultivation.
The shaduf allowed the Egyptians transfer water from the Nile to their field(oi). Those are many examples on how the Egyptians development to irrigation systems was very needed. The change to the Egyptians environment affected people, society and region in many ways. In document two the shaduf helped to cultivate crops every year instead of one which helped increase food supply.
Ancient Egypt was a very advanced society whose inventions inspired many of the basic necessities we have today. One of these would be their methods of irrigation. They used a machine called a shadoof which was comprised of a long pole with a bucket on one end and a weighty object on the other end. These buckets were lowered into the Nile and filled with water, then easily raised back up by water wheels and emptied onto higher ground. Oxen then swung the pole so that the water could be emptied into waterways that were used to irrigate their crops.
In document B the season Akhet is told to be known as flood season was when the “Fields in the Nile floodplain covered in water and fertilized by a new batch of silt” and then came the Peret and then Shemu which was the season when crops were harvested and sent to the markets. This cycle of season normally went as planned problem free except for the rare occasion that the river over flooded causing the soil to drown and become infertile. This was a major setback for the economy and a very negative impact. Just like how the Nile impacted Ancient Egypt other River Valley Civilizations had very similar situations. One example is Mesopotamia and the Tigris-Euphrates River, just like Egypt this river runs through the middle of the civilization and causes the land to be very fertile.
In conclusion, dirty streets worsened the black plague and made it more containable to people that lived in the medieval European age. Lastly, another effect that caused the black plague during medieval Europe was because of having bad hygiene. Having bad hygiene affected this time because the Europeans had to be cleaner than ever due to the black plague and how could have been easily contained. According to document E,” In Medieval Europe the average person (noble or peasant) changed their clothing and took a bath about 2 times per year.”
Since the Nile flooded, the flood waters left behind fertile soil, which also helped with planting crops. Settlement, most Egyptians settled by upper Egypt, as it provided water, food, transportation and great fertile soil for growing food, Ancient Egypt would have survived without the Nile River. Since rainfall is almost non-existent in Egypt, the floods provided the only source of moisture to sustain crops. When Egyptians settled, they experienced flood cycle, a bad flood could drown crops and possibly destroy villages, a low Nile would bring severe drought and cause food shortages.
However, this program was not as successful as the Works Progress Administration, which had hired 8.5 million people by the time it was disbanded. As such, its effect on granting workers jobs was limited. Additionally, though the TVA gave many people electricity for the first time, it did cause flooding in the Alabama towns of Waterloo and Riverton—causing forceful relocation for many citizens. However, the intention of the government to provide citizens with electricity, dams and overall economic growth in the Tennessee River Valley Area showed how socialist the government’s role became during the New Deal: Instead of the business-oriented, loan-providing Reconstruction Finance Corporation that Herbert Hoover backed,
Most Egyptians live along the banks of the Nile River, so that they will have access to the water they need. The uses of this water are for water sources, transportation, and irrigation for farming. The water creates soil that is great for farming. In Egypt, the Nile River creates a green valley across the desert that is good for farming. People do not want to live in a hot and dry desert that have little water sources.
There are also man places in rural Peru that do have the capability for water pipes to be placed that allows water to always be available. Also water cannot be drunk straight from the tab like it can be in the United States. It has too much bacteria and would make a person very ill. Also almost no sunlight can be seen in the major cities of Peru, such as Lima. This is due to the excessive contamination due to the many factories in Peru.
“ Disease in the early years to Jamestown position at the salt freshwater transition, where filth introduced into the river tended to fester rather them flush away” (Blanton). Settlers didn 't know about bacteria in dirty water so they drank it unknowingly and many got diseases. In the early 1600s there was a drought (Science ). This source comes from science magazine. The purpose of this source is to inform and it contains no bias, it has reliable information that proves that the colonists died because of environmental issues.
The chemicals also lead to health problems, and illness. In Michigan there are many cities, each one of those cities no matter how small or large they are each has an annual water report. This annual report tells you how the water source is being cleaned, how polluted it is, If there is any boiling effects, or witch cities have
The Obama administration actively promotes the food safety, but fails to advertise effectively against the negative aspects of relations that involving food safety. A more recent and especially important example of poor and bereft government assistance is the aforementioned Flint Michigan water crisis. Governor, Rick Snyder of Michigan and his personally appointed mayor and city council decided to change the water source of Flint from the clean Lake Huron to the toxic Flint River, all to save money. The governor’s office eventually found out how toxic
Throughout the Muslim Golden Age, which flourished from the 9th – 12th centuries, many brilliant Muslims made spectacular contributions that still greatly impact society today. Islamic achievements and contributions have helped other cultures adopt new ideas and make great advancements in an immense variety of fields. These fields include medicine, architecture, banking, art, literature, astronomy, and several others. These achievements have assisted in making daily life for the Muslims and even us today a great deal easier. Of all of these achievements, those involving the establishment of a banking system, the development of hospitals, and the development of herbal medicines and pharmacies are among the three that I feel are the most important and influential contributions to the world today.
Cyrus Waldrop #27 2-3-16 How the Nile Shaped Egypt The Nile was the most important part of Egypt because it influenced agriculture, created a boundary for safety, and was a highway for travel and trade. It also meant Life or Death for the people of Egypt. They depended on it for things like food, water, a place to wash their clothes,etc. The Nile influenced agriculture for the egyptians because it created fertile land.
