Look at this section and list three major questions you think the authors will be addressing in the next seven chapters. (1) (2) (3) 2. Southern Economy and Social Structure a. Explain the connection between the invention of the cotton gin by Eli _________ in 17___ and the rapid expansion of short-staple cotton production based on slave labor in the South. If the cotton gin actually made picking seeds from cotton much easier, why did planters perceive a vastly increased need for slave labor? b. Cotton was king in both the South and in Britain. By 1840, cotton amounted to _____percent of U. S. exports and accounted for more than _____percent of the world’s supply. Britain’s economy was based on cotton textiles, and Britain got _____percent of its fiber supply from the South. (No wonder Southerners thought England would “be tied to them by cotton threads” in the event of conflict with the North.) c. List two negatives of this Southern plantation economy mentioned by the authors. (1) (2) d.

History Love Paper

...Kevin Haith Paper 2 Throughout history there is still no definition of what true love is. There is said to be three types of love that are known as erotic love, love between friends, and unconditional love. Each type of love is a type of love that some individuals have experienced throughout their lifetime. Of these three there is a major argument on which type of love is considered the best. Throughout this course we have read and viewed three text that involve love and each one describes there view of what is the best type of love. In “Pride and Prejudice” the author tries to explain the Elizabeth Bennet and Darcy are said to have the best love in the text and in the “Song of Roland” the best love is the love between the lord and his vassals. While both texts describe in their view what the best type of love is. “Pride and Prejudice” seems to better define what true love is and better compares love to real life situations for its viewers or readers. In the “Song of Roland” the main point that we discussed is the relationship between a lord and his vassal. Roland was said to be the greatest vassal and under two accounts he has proven to be the greatest. Where love comes in, is when it is stated and understood that a true vassal is one that cares for nothing more but his lord. Females, money, life itself are supposed to be last when it comes to a vassal’s lord. Even though it might seem awkward talking about two males loving each other, love was not really sexist around......

...Class Assignment 4 Chapter 4 Washington wanted fashionable clothing that advertised his status as a gentlemen. He wanted to look, live and behave like an English country gentlemen, and wanted to be accepted as a transatlantic member of the British elite. The wealthy colonist’s aspirations testified important developments in the 18th century. Prosperity and growing population tied the English colonies to London and the flow of goods between Britain and America fueled the desires for acceptance by the British elite. They wanted America to be more like London with their wealth and overflowing production of goods. The Great Awakening was a huge religious revival in colonial America striking first in the Middle colonies and New England in the 1740’s and then spreading to the southern colonies. The Great Awakening affected everyone. Whitefield, an Anglican minister came to the colonies and revivals and mass conversions often followed his appearance. Crowds gathered to listen to his sermons and many converted and despaired salvation. Disputes between individuals and more extreme revivals split individuals into two separate churches, New Lights and Old Lights. These Revivals created tension between these two groups. However, The Great Awakening not only brought religious revival between groups it also fostered greater political awareness and participation among colonist.

These qualities have contributed mightily to the dreamlike image of California that resides in our collective imagination. Yet these natural qualities-and many more-also have played an important role in the historical development of California. The Origins of California The earliest attempts to account for the origination of California were made by the first peoples to live in the area. The Indians of Califomia developed a wide variety of creation stories, each with its own unique features and cast of characters. Widely......

Johnstown Flood

...Satyan Basnet History 1302 Book Journal I Johnstown Flood Date: February 18th 2014 Chapter 1: The Sky Was Red After reading the first chapter, I view Johnstown in 1889 as a growing industrial city. Like any other town and cities, the Industrial Revolution had huge effect in its rapid growth. People seemed to be rushing to this town from everywhere. Though the Germans and the Welsh were the first settlers, many others like the Scotch-Irish, Jews and Negroes came along in droves to toil at the town's steel and barbed wire factories. Before the arrival of the canal, Johnstown seemed to be sparsely populated with a rather slow life and the town remained no more than a backwoods trading center. However, with the arrival of the Pennsylvania Mainline canal in 1834 , it became one of the booming town at the heart of Allegheny Mountain Range. After 1834, as the chapter depicts, life in Johnstown seems to start gaining a rapid pace. The nearly doubling of population from 15,000 to 30,000 within ten years time shows how people from all parts of the country were moving into this valley in search of opportunity and prosperity. The image of the town also shows a difference in class. There were wealthy people who lived on the high ground, while the poor workers were crowded in the lowlands. Johnstown then had five-story buildings on Main, up-to-date stores, opera house, a night school, a library, a remarkable number of churches, and several large, handsome houses, most......

History and Love

...History and Love Teresa Harris Ashford University ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Instructor Maria Rasimas 10/20/2014 History and Love “All short stories begin with a point of view” (Moose,2000). The theme in ‘Country Lovers’ is how racial segregation and social differences affect people’s lives. Country Lovers is a short story about a black girl and a white boy who grow up in the same town. The setting of the story is in South Africa. At the time this story happens, South Africa was under a strict apartheid regime. The girl works on the farm that belongs to the boy’s family. Her name is Thebedi, and His name is Paulus. Thebedi is a very good person, but she lives in very hard circumstances. Paulus is a generous rich boy, but he is also selfish and ruthless. The two kids were friends into adulthood. “They were not afraid of one another, they had known one another always (Gordimer,1975).” When it was time for Paulus to start school, they hardly seen each other. Only when Paulus returns for the holidays. When Paulus turned 15, he began meeting other girls. He met a girl at a wedding, they had slept together. Even though Paulus meets girls other than thebedi, he buys gifts for her. When Paulus returns home for the holidays, the two meet at the...

Some We Love Chapter 5 Summary and Reflection

...closest animal relative the monkeys that exhibit similarities in toy preferences with human children. The female and male monkeys likes, dislikes, and fears mirrored that of human infantas and children. Oxytocin also plays a role in the human-animal bond, although studies are not definitive, levels of oxytocin are shown to increase after people interacted with animals. In a similar study, males and females had their hormone levels assessed after interacting with animals and it was discovered that hormone levels fluxuated after the interaction. Males in particular were more likely to be aggressive and less empathetic when testosterone levels were high, and the opposite effect when low. Hunting is often associated with men, but as the chapter title suggest “prom queen kills first deer on sixteenth birthday,” hunting is not exclusively for men although they are more likely to kill animals for sport or fun. Hunting could be dated far back into our existence, and it was often the men that hunted while the women performed other duties. An article I read about gender emotion and hunting stated that “from an evolutionary perspective men would have had to shut off their emotions while out hunting, so over time it has become natural for them to do so.” This could possibly be a trait that human males developed overtime as a way of coping with killing the animals they hunted. The shut off of male emotions may also have an effect on mens relationships with animals today. Some theories......

...National Hazards: Floods Francis Lopez Cathedral High School Abstract Floods are very dangerous natural hazards. Every year they cost millions if not billions of dollars in damages, to people everywhere. They affect a lot of people worldwide. Floods can also be caused by a number of events. Snow melts, tropical storms, and dam or levee breaks are just a few of the causes of floods. Floods often cause damage to homes and businesses if they are in the natural flood plains of rivers. While river flood damage can be eliminated by moving away from rivers and other bodies of water, people have traditionally lived and worked by rivers because the land is usually flat and fertile and because rivers provide easy travel and access to commerce and industry. Although you can lessen the chance of floods occurring in your area by moving, floods can still occur everywhere and affect everyone. National Hazards: Floods Floods are one of the most dangerous natural disasters on Earth. Floods have cost humanity millions of dollars in damages and so much more. They are also very fatal. Every year, floods kill 6,753 people. While this may seem like a low number of deaths compared to car crashes or earthquakes but when other affects of floods are seen, Floods are seen as very dangerous disasters. They effect people from every part of the globe, effecting over 96,878,672 people and are caused by many things. In floods that result from snow melts, people in areas that are not close to...

Noah and Gilgamesh the Two Floods

...Running head: THE TWO FLOODS 1 Noah and Gilgamesh the Two Great Floods Jonathan Bailey Oakland City University English 201 World Lit. The Two Floods 2 The History The epic story of Gilgamesh has been an interest of religious patrons since it was found in the ruins of the great library of Nineveh in the mid-nineteenth century, along with its substantial similarities to the great flood in Noah’s day. The remaining portion of this epic story, which very possibly dates back to the third millennium B.C., and holds little if almost no Christian values, as it distresses the typical beliefs in the myths related with the pagan societies of the period in time. Nevertheless, a number of religious patrons have deliberated on the notion of creation and the hereafter introduced in the epic story. There are even select researchers that have accepted the similarities in the Babylonian and Hebrew findings, while all are not ready to make the connection in the two floods. (Keller, 1956) (anonymous, 2013) There are countless stories telling of floods that have come from ancient sources strewn around the globe. The accounts that were translated from the cuneiform tablets were comprised of some of the most primitive remaining text, having recognizable associations. Cuneiform script was created by the Sumerians and passed on by the Akkadians. Babylonian as well as Assyrian are dialects of Akkadian, and both have instances of floods in them. Despite the fact that......

The Flood

...BEFORE FLOOD….. Living in a quaint little town of rolling hills, with flowers that flow, like the waves of the ocean across the land in a colourful torrent. A cottage sits up on a hill, looking down on the town and its people, who seem to flow through the street, exchanging words with everyone they meet along the path. Every morning a rooster wakes me awake as I drink fresh cow milk from the nearby farmhouse boosting my energy and fulfilling my voracious appetite. From my little veranda , I can see the children playing in the public parks. Churches that resound with ancient praise. Tree lined walk ways, which lead to a museum that holds every little secrets of its town. A market place makes up the centre, the beating heart, of this hidden away town of mine. A lot of construction and agricultural activities contribute to the hustle-bustle of this town as the town conforms to the fast moving pace of society. New parking lots are being built, restaurants are being upgraded, and talk of a mall buzzes in the ears of the locals. The beautiful river of Wales stretches across the farmland, its waves woven into a intricate pattern of silvery stars as the cold freezing water tickles my feet making me feel numb .Apart from giving grandstand view ,it flora and fauna contributes to the overall provisions of the town. There were many flowers here, many kinds, white, yellow, purple and blue.The perfume of the lilies in the sun permeates the heavy air as it lazily drifts over......

Love Chapter

...Bible's "Love Chapter" Printer-friendly version article by Good News Editor One Bible chapter—1 Corinthians 13—is aptly known as the love chapter since it gives us a beautiful description of what godly love is like! The rest of this letter from the apostle Paul shows that some Corinthian church members sought certain spiritual gifts with a wrong motive—to gain superior status. In 1 Corinthians:12:31 (NIV), Paul said, "And now I will show you the most excellent way"—the right motive and approach for exercising all spiritual gifts—the way of love. In 1 Corinthians:13:1-3, Paul mentions several impressive gifts. No matter which gift we have, if we are lacking love, then in God's sight we are nothing! Without love, the gift is tarnished, the results are ineffectual and God is displeased. Verse 3 shows that even self-sacrificing, charitable works can be done with motives other than true love. Verses 4 through 7 tell us some of the characteristics of true love: Love is not selfish or self-centered. It is kind, humble, forgiving, courteous, not easily angered, respectful, trusting, positive and hopeful. It also gives us spiritual resilience and patience so that it willingly "endures all things" to obey and serve God. Envy and competition create division, as was the case in the Corinthian church. Love is the great unifier. Verse 11 points out that emotional and spiritual maturity is best summed up by love. We may tend to rank faith and hope alongside love,......
