The only way to remove lice was a delousing machine but instead lice were hidden. Lice also produced thousands of eggs within a year. Another severe problem about pests during Trench Warfare was Fleas. During the Trench Warfare, fleas carried typhus, which was a deadly disease which could poison soldiers. Fleas were also on rats, so diseases could get transferred on air or
These dwellings sat directly on the soil beneath the above house with no water or sanitation, therefore residents had to bring waste to the street above to be dumped. Lodging-houses were houses where individuals and families could stay a night, week, or even months when they had nowhere else to go. Their design was similar to that of modern day hotels, however, the use and conditions within them were completely different. In Lodging-houses differing ages and sexes were not separated, rather they were crammed together in tiny rooms, often with five or six beds scattered along the floor of each room. Tenement houses were similar to lodging-houses but were meant for longer stays.
The Sahara desert has many harsh conditions such as these thunderstorms and rain also make it very difficult to survive there. In the Sahara, the rain usually never falls however when the rain falls somethings it can come so hard and wash away cars and homes. There are many factors that make living in the Sahara and the Sahel challenging, however, there are some conditions such as animals that make living in the Sahara desert possible. Based on the text, “Tuaregs depend on their animals for eggs milk cheese”(pg 303). The food provided from animals is necessary for life in the Sahara because the is very little water so the most of the
It was my Senior year of High school when my parents decided to send me on a mission trip to Central America. All my friends were flying out to the Turks and Caucus and I was on a plane to Nicaragua. I would be there for 10 days and would be building houses and helping the needy. I was not at all excited to be going and had rather been with my friend enjoying the islands. I would soon come to realize that Nicaragua would teach me three lesson that would stay with me forever: how to live fully, that material needs are not everything, and that living for Christ is everything.
The new roads were made of stone and mud. There were ditches on either side for drainage so they were safer in bad weather. Finally, the Roman Republic had gladiator fights. These definitely did not meet the common good. Slaves and animals were forced to fight, and in every show around half of the fighters died.
I often helped my mom around our one room house cleaning, fixing meals, and occasionally helping collect laundry from our neighbors. We survived off of our month-to-month income and every penny counted. Life in Nicaragua had always been tough for our village because we lived in the poorest
I just returned home to Spain following a three-month trip to Florida and thought that other fellow travellers like me would be interested in hearing about an airline that most of us had never flown. The airline in question is Portugal’s national carrier Tap Portugal and how I was pleasantly surprised by the entire experience including using Lisbon as a hub for any future flights. To set the scene for you, the trip was to visit a friend of mine who lives in the upmarket town of Boca Raton, Florida. The name Boca Raton will be familiar to fans of the Jerry Seinfeld show as the place where Jerry’s parents retired to New York from. Not only is “Boca” as the locals call it full of retirees escaping the bitter cold of the north, it is also a
I ran into this whole idea this summer when flying back from my internship I was expected to tip the Pax-Assist personnel who helped Sharon and me through the airport. I had no idea what a good tip was and I felt quite out of my league, but we managed to arrive home in one piece with our entire luggage. I would agree though there are times when it is mere extortion and bribery not tipping in some countries, but for the most part it is most likely how the government personnel make a living. Reflection on Chapter 8. I was also exposed to some of
This summer I went to Matagalpa, Nicaragua for 3 weeks. It was a scary experience for me at first because in all my 17 years of living I have never left my home of Oakland. Before I left to go on my trip I was nervous because I have never rode on an airplane before, and I have never been away from my grandmother for that long. In fact, she was one of the main reasons why I went. She motivated me to step out of my comfort zone and experience new and exciting things.
Many people in developing countries barely have access to any water source at all and for those that do, the water is completely filthy and disease-ridden. Clean water is not only a right of people but also a prime necessity to have healthier lives hence our objective is to design a system which filters water for villages and Remote places by harnessing the human pedal
