In the passage “Noah Count and the Arkansas Ark” by Gary Blackwood; the Appleton family demonstrates to the son the that even without proper education there is still other kinds of education even though he doubted them. The reason he doubted them was that they never had a proper education that is taught at school. The father’s nickname was Noah because he was building a raft to escape the flood that was coming into Mississippi. The way the family was able to make the narrators view about their education change was due to that it was raining even though there weren’t any clouds, their early preparation, and that they found good land to wait out the flood and got back to their farms.
Killing an estimated 1,833 people, Hurricane Katrina was one of the deadliest hurricanes to ever hit the United States. The flooding alone caused massive devastation and destruction. Millions of people lost their homes and all their possessions. This flood was horrific, but imagine a flood so great that it destroyed all of humanity. This great flood occurs in the stories of Noah, Utnapishtim, and Deucalion. The flood stories from Noah and the Flood, the Epic of Gilgamesh, and Deucalion, are all similar but have unique aspects.
Stephen Puleo wanted to tell the story of The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919, so he did. Puleo is an author, historian, university teacher, public speaker, and a communications professional. Some of his works are the “Boston Italians”, “A City So Grand”, and “Dark Tide”. While I was reading this book, I was amazed of how big and fast the Molasses was moving down the streets of Boston. You wouldn 't think of molasses moving fast. But Puleo makes you believe how fast it was going.Puleo was the right guy to write this book. He has plenty of background in history, and he explains the flood really well.
Under the Southwestern Sky Parched and dry describes your land, with buttes and canyons all so grand! Oh such a wonder to behold, your beauty is worth its price in gold! This arid region so enchants, with such diversity of animals and plants. What a rough and dry terrain, where desert animals rule in their domain. Animals of prey are all around, in search of dinner in their happy hunting ground. It's in this wilderness landscape, a desert hare tries to escape. Will the Law of Nature win-out, as he scurries to his hide-out? The eagles are soaring high in the air, perhaps they're headed for their home somewhere? The snakes and buzzards come out to play, witnessing the drama of the day! Wintery Sight Gazing at my backyard wonder, I think of the Liberty Bell and what it means to all. And of the flyers who bravely answered our nation's call. I think of Paul Revere on his famous ride. And of the American troops who didn't hide. I think of the great Presidents on Mt. Rushmore. And of the men and women, who protect both rich and poor. I think of the military that is so very true. And of the American flag that is red, white, and blue! Our War Troops sent away before Christmas Day. Sent somewhere in the desert, the commanders say. Sent to practice their military skill. Trained to fight enemies who want to kill. The President made the command, of course. He decided to use our mighty force.
The Atchafalaya River is the third- ranking river on the earth. It’s located in South Louisiana, with its base the gulf coast from the mouth of the Mississippi river almost to Texas, its two sides coming together up near the lock and not including New Orleans or Baton Rouge. The Mississippi river with its sand and stuff has created most of Louisiana and couldn’t have done it by remaining in one channel. If it did then southern Louisiana would be a long peninsula reaching into the Gulf of Mexico. Southern Louisiana is still in its form now because the Mississippi river jumped here and there with an arc bout two hundred miles wide. For the Mississippi to make such a big change was completely natural, but in the wait dince the last shift Europeans
The Ark is a ship that is floating on the planet of Hydros. This ship is the size of a city in terms of its inhabitants. The civilians are able to sustain life here through agriculture, fishing, and scavenging for materials. What they can’t get through these means they get from the Dominion. As a part of the Dominion the inhabitants of the ark are weary of Knaru. They fear the Knaru more then they hate them. (Their home is entirely made out of food for the Knaru)
Every religion has its own way of describing how life and earth came to be. It is a very disputed topic. The stories Genesis and Popol Vuh are two religions way of explaining this controversial idea. They come from the religions Christianity and the Quiché Maya. There are many differences between the two tales; however, there are also quite a few similarities.

On the third day God created the land, the oceans, and the plants. On the fourth day God created the sun, the moon, and the stars. On the fifth day God created the birds, fish and other sea creatures.

People have thought for centuries that erosion, wind, and water-flow have happened over millions of years. But with what the Bible has described the water that had fell would be able to change the land scape, create fossils, and lay down layer on top of layer of sediment. Also the earth doesn

Instead of answering the call, Jonah ran away. In the midst of his fear, Jonah boarded a ship leaving for Tarshish.
