In early 1900, specifically, 1906, The Jungle by Upton Sinclair was written. This novel told the story of a Lithuanian immigrant who worked in a filthy Chicago meatpacking plant. It exposed the meatpacking industry by stating their vile practices not only towards their meat but their workers as well. This was a result of the combination of many immigrants in the United States to pursue a better life, and the fact that many big industries were looking for ways to maximize their profit.
The overall purpose of this investigation was to determine the effects of different types of environments on pill bug attractancy. Pill bugs were exposed to 2 different environments (sugar and water). The attractancy was observed and recorded in a raw data table. A research hypothesis was formulated that the sugar would work as the best attractant for pill bugs. Sugar had the greatest impact of the two environments used because it attracted 8/9 ants. Due to this the research hypothesis was supported. After further calculations if a person wanted to collect 64 pill bugs all he/she needs to do is spray this mixture of sugar around his house and everywhere in his backyard.
If you had a million dollars to spend on the Progressivism Movement, and how the reforms took charge, how would you spend it? The Progressivism included both major political parties, it lasted about 20 years. Many large reforms were being debated and fixed during this time period of hard times. There were 3 major reforms that were included in this movement. These reforms were contradicted and underestimated, but some people thought otherwise. Those reforms were Food Safety, Women’s Suffrage, Child Labor, and Preservation. If i was handed a million dollars to spend on these 4 reforms, i’d definitely spend majority of the money on food safety.
The emotion in the The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien emulate the literal and physical things the soldiers take with them. The tranquilizers, pantyhose, and water buffalo symbolize the anxiety, longing, and sometimes rage felt during the war, and reflect how traumatizing the experience is.
The use of trenches in World War 1 was very popular, they helped protect against artillery, machine gun fire and enemy troops. A system of trenches meant that it was almost impossible for the army using the system to lose ground. They were dug to protect from enemy fire and hold ground. They were so effective because frontal attack would mean heavy casualties for the opposition and the length of the trenches meant that flanking was almost impossible. Battles where both sides used trenches usually went for a long time and ground was rarely gained by either side. Trenches were dug with walls about 10 feet high that were often reinforced with sandbags or planks of wood. Barbwire was placed out the front of the trenches to prevent a frontal assault

IN THE BEGINNING The year is 3069. Dr. Smith and her husband are both marine biologists studying mutations in rats at their secluded science center, Murinae Labs, located on the distant island, Corsica. However, one tragic day, a hurricane crossed paths with Corsica Island, destroying
The purpose of our project was to examine how accessible it would be to make medieval cosmetics from the Trotula while also learning about the beauty standards of the Medieval Ages. Two of our recipes were tested on a doll to detect any effects on its skin.
In “Reapers” by Jean Toomer how destructive humans can be when it comes to nature is portrayed. The quote, “Black horses drive a mower through the weeds,” (line 5) shows that humans use animals to do labor that can be done easily without the help of animals if they put a little more effort into it. Animals are forced to do countless hours of harsh and grueling work, simply because mankind is too lazy. Horses are assisting people in building more and more cities and making farms even more gigantic in size, while taking over habitats full of multifarious groups of animals. Another horrible aspect of human nature is shown in the quote about a field rat getting slaughtered wrongfully, “And there, a field rat, startled, squealing
Of all the city creatures, the rat is the undisputed king. Due to its extraordinary climbing habits, rats make easy work of trees, power and telephone lines, and even gutter spouts to facilitate its access to homes [Bird]. If you live in the city, there are rats living with you, whether you see them or not. While there are several species, the two most well know in North America are the Roof rat and the Norway rat (also known as subway rat, sewer rat, alley rat, house rat, or common rat). They originated in Manchuria, spreading to Europe by foot and eventually sailed along with colonial settlers on ships to North America in the mid-1700s [Haupt]. The war between humans and rats will go on for some time. The discovery of effective and economic
Chipmunks are related to the squirrel and are actually part of the squirrel family. Alternating light and dark stripes along their cheeks and backs help them hide from predators such as hawks, weasels, coyotes, etc. Chipmunks are small mammals and hibernate in their dens or “burrows” during the winter like bears but they do not use fat to keep themselves alive. They like to live alone in their dens and they are good at climbing trees and are great swimmers. One chipmunk can gather up to 165 acorns in one day which means that within just two days, that chipmunk would have enough food to last them the whole winter even though they typically more food than they need; safety precautions, am I right?! The reason they can gather that much
So we found out our house had rats. This surprised me. I always thought rats mainly hung out in gritty urban neighborhoods, and we live in Coral Gables, a grit-free community that keeps property values up by making pretty much everything illegal. You get fined for painting your house a
