Elijah Anderson is an author of the text that was read of Urban Experience; it’s titled as The Cosmopolitan Canopy: Race and Civility in Everyday Life. As I read through the text, it made me wondered if places that I’ve been to is considered as part of cosmopolitanism or ethnocentrism. Elijah stated that cosmopolitanism embrace the individuality and achievement, especially through education and experience (p. 189). On the other hand, ethnocentrism embrace the loyalty to their own ethnic group (p. 189). Both of them typically applied onto non-white people, more specifically African-Americans’ attitude and their cultural assumptions and behaviors that come within.
They can eat anything from small birds to gigantic alligator. According to source 1 sentence 2 of the first paragraph by Matt Piven “Native to the grassy marshes of Southeast Asia, it is among the largest snakes in the world, capable of growing to an astounding length
but some of their recent behavior shows that they will eat lizards, baby birds, baby bats and to a lesser extent snake eggs. They are excellent summers and are harmless to human, In fact when they are picked up they will curl up into a ball hiding its head and fooling its attackers with their head shaped
The Minnamurra Rainforest is situated in the Bundderoo National Park, located 15 kilometers west of Kiama on the NSW South Coast, which is less than two hours’ drive from South Sydney. It is at the southernmost limit (34ºS latitude) and is an example of the leftover subtropical and warm temperate rainforest from the ancient super-continent Gondwana (Department of Environment and Conservation, 2004). The Minnamurra Rainforest is located in a large platform carved from the Illawarra Escarpment by the Minnamurra River. It has an inner core of 20 hectares of rainforest that is mostly natural and a larger remaining area of 401 hectares has been disturbed as a result of clearing, fires and floods (Charles Sturt University, 2015). Above the rainforest
Did you know that chimpanzees are one of our closest relatives? Humans and chimps actually share 95% to 98% of the same DNA! Chimpanzees are actually very similar to humans and they can even catch or be infected with human diseases. Chimps are even similar to us with both body and behavior. They could also learn both american sign language and be taught human language.
1. Why are the rainforests so important to us? What are some of the valuable resources that they provide us with? The rainforest helps reduces the climate changes worldwide. Also there are a ton of species living in all kinds of rainforests.
Rainforests are one of the most useful things in this world. They contribute to a lot of the world’s resources and at the moment are being taken advantage of. Based on research done by Rhett butler (Co-founder of Tropical Conservation Science), it shows that by 2013 only 81.4% of the rainforest is left. Whereas in 1970 we still had 97.6% of the world’s rainforest. By 2013, we can see that approximately 763,104 trees have been cut down.
Humans have been around for a while and they are known to change and adapt to their surroundings. Many different groups over the course of history have been affected by deforestation because of the resources the rainforest provide. The rain forest is used as a supply of resources for people not only in South America but around the world as well. As the forest has been cleared away, species have been cleared with it. This is problematic for the indigenous people whose lives depend upon the on the resources the rainforest provides.
The rainforest helps maintain and regulate the continuous recycling of water that filter to the rivers, and lakes without this it would be more droughts, it supports air quality and helps trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce H2O. It also provides wood, fiber and fuel and it is also important to indigenous communities supplying fresh water, wild foods,wild fisheries and wood for fire and building. People who live near the rainforest also hold a somewhat cultrue or spiritual bond giving them a sense of
The green heart of South America and the largest rainforest in the world, The Amazon. It stretches for almost 7 million square kilometers and is home to 1 in 5 animals in the world. The amazon is far more than simply a collection of trees and animals but it regulates the entire planet’s atmosphere. Most people think trees get their physical structure from the soil but in reality trees get their nurturance from the air, They are breathing organisms. Trees clean our air by absorbing all the carbon dioxide and storing it as carbon.
A rainforest is called so because of the high amount of rainfall it receives during a year. As per the climate of the rainforest it is very hot and humid for which the formation of the rain through evaporation takes place intensely causing rainfall frequently. In it, the growth of the vegetation is densely populated with a number of tall trees and plants. Rainforest covers only six percent of the earth surface, but is found to contain more than half of the world’s plants and animal species. As it is extremely hot and humid, animals and plants got to adopt to such kind of climate.
