After only three years of war, Russia had 4,950,000 wounded soldiers, and over 1,700,000 casualties. By the war’s end, Russia had weakened their international relations, shrunk their grain, coal and oil industries, and due to the millions of casualties, left women as the primary caretakers and providers for their families. Nearly every aspect of Russian economy and society had completely deteriorated which ultimately led to the Russian Revolution, and it began in March of 1917. Known as the February Revolution, it marked the beginning of the nine month revolution that would dismantle the functionality of the country for decades after. It took place in Petrograd, the Russian capital at the time, and was supported by 90,000 men and women on strike.

In Canada, this evolution of the railroad was constructed on the backs of tens of thousands of Chinese immigrants. Specifically during the building of the Trans-Canada railway, over 15,000 chinese workers worked tirelessly to lay over 500 kilometers of track from 1881-1885. The dangerous nature of this work incurred the deaths of over 4000 of those workers; those who survived were left with only a meager amount of money as they received half of what their Canadian counterparts were paid. Although this railway came at a high toll, it transformed the face of Canadian transportation
The wind started blowing, causing several dust storms. The drought and dust storms made life difficult for farmers in the Midwest for ten years. People who could no longer make payments for their houses got kicked out and their homes were then owned by the bank. Their belongings were auctioned off to the highest bidder and the families loaded up whatever they had left and drove away. Many people, however, were determined to stay behind and live through the “Dust Bowl”.

The purpose of this rule is to help the member of the Anabaptist group realize the wrong they have done and to encourage his repentance.These Anabaptist/Mennonites groups were severely persecuted throughout Europe. Thousands were put to death as heretics by both Catholics and Protestants followers.To avoid persecution many fled to the mountains of Switzerland and Southern Germany.

Their settlements in and around Lancaster County is their second largest community. Because of their large families, the total Amish population has more than doubled since 1960 to over 85,000 and also since most children born in an Amish family also take on the traditions of their
According to the World Economic Forum, it was the second most expensive volcanic eruption in the world costing approximately $860 million US dollars (Figure 4). Repairs include the removal of 900 thousand tons of ash, rebuilding homes and businesses, repairing damaged bridges roads and railways (Mount St. Helens: Effects on people and economy). Another negative impact was that most of the trees were destroyed, blown to the ground or covered in mud from the landslide during the eruption loosing lots of valuable timber (Figure 5), this meant that people working in the lumber industry around the area of the volcano lost their jobs and had to move (United States Trade Commission report to Congress 1980). In areas with thick fall of ash, farming lands were covered, destroying crops such as wheat, apples, potatoes and alfalfa (United States Geological Survey,
