The rock cycle is extremely helpful and useful for scientists all over the world. These scientists use physical geology, which carefully focuses on how rocks form into other rocks (Doc. 2). Also, through the rock cycle, three types of rocks form, which are called igneous rock, sedimentary rock, and metamorphic rock (Doc. 1). The rock cycle is much like the water cycle, but it takes millions of years for a rock to form, wear down, and form again. Also, scientists need the rock cycle to watch how the rocks form overtime (OI). The scientists take careful looks at the rocks to study things like texture, composition, and where the rock came from (OI). That helps them figure out what type of rock it is and what it is useful for. That is why the
Because the idea of a sunstone was presented through these sagas, it is inevitable to question the accuracy of this concept. One may easily believe it to be an untrue account or an exaggeration of a story, created to glorify the technological advances made by the Vikings or depict them as magical beings. While some archeologists believe that because the stone is mentioned it holds some historical relevance and value, and that evidence is present to prove this. Thorkild Ramskou, a Danish archeologist believed the stone in question to be Iceland spar or cordierite (Garcia). The Vikings that discovered North America could easily access either stone, as they are native to their region, specifically Iceland. Each of the stones could potentially have been a useful tool to the Vikings when neither the sun nor stars were present. The Iceland spar and cordierite have the ability to capture polarized sunlight and reflect a double image that is moved in order to find the sun (Garcia). This double image of light is then
In his article “Steel Axes for Stone-Age Australians,” Lauriston Sharp discusses the traditional Yir Yoront culture of Australia in the mid 1930s and the importance and function of the stone axe in the in terms of technology, conduct, and belief in the culture. Sharp evaluates that the colonization of various Europeans had resulted into the introduction of new technologies that they had brought along with them. The article mainly focuses on the steel axes that were introduced which outweighed the stone axes previously used by these people and has thus drastically affected the Yir Yoront culture. Ultimately, the author concludes that the traditional culture of this aboriginal tribe had collapsed and a new culture incorporated with European values

“I am sorry,” sighed the tree “I wish that I could give you something… But I have nothing left. I am just an old stump I am sorry…” The Giving Tree Shel Silverstein. Many interactions between man and nature are put into stories to give a message that humans must treat nature with care so, other generations can survive and follow or it will be destroyed. In both the Lorax and Easter’s End these actions are portrayed, however Easter’s end’s story shows us this interaction in reality, while The Lorax is fiction. In both stories they portray the same scenario, people find new land and use up all the resources which explains the theory of Tragedy

This new American State will be called Monkaushka derived from the Native American term: trembling earth or earthquake. The people that live in this state are incredibly friendly people who have a tendency to be outspoken with their beliefs and warm in their hearts. They are homely folk who tend not to leave their close knit areas for too long. There is an folk tale that crawls around the towns that no one has ever left this state; only those who weren’t born here can come and go. You would think that is ridiculous, but the landscape that this state resides on is unlike any other state and can verify the legend for many people. It has many mountains with steep slopes and snow covered tops. They obstruct most of the rising sun and setting sun
According to the Declaration of Independence, King George III was responsible for the American rebellion against the British Empire. The colonists listed 27 abuses committed by the king in the document. These repeated maltreatments established a tyrannical government in North America, which eventually led to the colonist’s revolt. The first 12 abuses established King George III’s authority as despotic instead of allowing a representative government for the colonists. For example: abuses 8 and 9 explains how King George III would further tighten his control through the judiciary. He flat out prevented the establishment of judicial powers in the colonies, and he made the judges dependent on him for their jobs and salaries. His word, whether it

The emperor and I discussed alchemy and healing methods through the earth element. At that time, he mentioned the fact that, should karma permit it, I may be involved in the field of healthcare. He was an accomplished mind reader. It is apparent that the beings of the earth element are the most accomplished mind readers of all the beings of the other elements. During one of the audiences with the Gnome king, I petitioned him to evoke a small amount of the Red Lion into a physical vessel. He concurred under the condition that I shall never take advantage of the stone unless most severe maladies necessitate its use. I was present while the Gnome king created the stone. The creation was accomplished by using water-soluble salts and crystalline dust in an unconventional distillery apparatus. To a casual observer, the process may appear simple, but the various oscillations of rays that emanated from the Gnome king into the
There is an island in the midst of the Pacific Island called the Easter Island. This mysterious island is filled with statues of heads called Moai statues. The Moai statues are about 13 feet tall and weigh over 14 tons (history.com staff). There are three questions that many archeologists have been trying to answer. Who created them? How were they made and how did they get there? Many archeologists have come up with different theories of what could have happened.They ran trials and experiments with the evidence given. Although there are many theories about the Moai Statues of Easter Island, the creation and transport of these statues can be proven through DNA evidence, track evidence, and historical evidence.
The first Chinese immigrant was during the nineteenth century, many people think that this was life changing for the Chinese, but the reality was completely opposite. Thousands of Chinese came over to the US by the Central Coast who hired them to work on the Transcontinental Railroad.

When looking at the history of art there are many different things to look at such as paintings, sculpture, jewelry, books, clothing, architecture and many different factors to take into account. The resources available, the culture of the people making the art and what was important to them. When there is written record of history, it makes it easier to understand the people and what their art represented. When we do not, it becomes more difficult. It then becomes a theory/educated guess based on things we do know from history.
I am going to be running the Regent 's Park 10k run for a charity named Stonewall. I chose this charity as it is something I 'm extremely passionate about. This charity supports LGBT youth who are struggling with bullying. I am passionate about this subject as I struggled in and throughout primary and secondary school coming to terms with who I am and the names people called me. This bullying was a main part of why I suffered severe depression; With the right help though, I was back in a better and happier state of mind. Just a small donation could help support the LGBT youth who are suffering from bullying and mental health problems. I don 't know where I would be today if I didn 't receive the support I did. Stonewall’s purpose is to make
