Nuclear Strikes
Nuclear Strikes Scientifically, there is no obstacle for a nuclear or atomic bomb. There are no secrets in Nuclear Science anymore. Anyone with a reasonable physics degree and access to a good technical library could design a workable atomic bomb in less than 6 months, so why hasn't anyone. Maybe there has been, no one is exactly sure. In the last 52 years there has been enough nuclear warheads made to destroy every city in the world and still have thousands left over.(Church 40) This all happen

The Mayan culture, according to archaeological research, attained its greatest development about the 6th century AD. Another group, the Toltec, established an empire in the Valley of Mexico and developed a great civilization still evidenced by the ruins of magnificent buildings and monuments. The leading tribe, the Aztec, built great cities and developed an intricate social, political, a

Technology is a great thing, it aids man in the exploration of the universe, and himself. But there are times when technology can be the greatest downfall of man. One such time was when the creation of the nuclear bomb. Which was to be used in the Was in efforts to end it. In 1939, a group of scientists, including Albert Einstein, wrote a letter to President Roosevelt to warn of the Nazi’s effort to purify Uranium-235, which would be used in the creation of a bomb of mass-destruction.

The city went up in flames caused by the immense power equal to about 20,000 tons of TNT. The project was a success. They were an unprecedented assemblage of civilian, and military scientific brain power—brilliant, intense, and young, the people that helped develop the bomb.

MEXICO Southward from its 1,500 mile long border with the United States lies the Estados Unidos Mexicanos. A country with slightly more than 750,000 square miles in area, Mexico has a vast array of mineral resources, limited agricultural land, and a rapidly growing population. These factors are the basis for many of the country's present problems as well as opportunities for future development. The nation is struggling to modernize its economy. With more than 80 million people in the mid-1980s,

Diego Rivera 1886-1957
Diego Rivera (1886-1957) Diego Rivera's art was one of the columns on which one of the strongest movements in american painting was to find support: mexican muralism. His art greatly depends on a vocabulary born from a mixture between Gauguin and the aztec and mayan sculptures. His works range from murals and pencil drawings to book illustrations and political writings. Diego Rivera, using simplified forms and vivid colors, brilliantly rescued the precolombine past, as well as the most important

Thirty-six hours later a second earthquake of magnitude of 7.5 occurred. The first earthquake shook buildings in Mexico City for a total of three minutes.

Mexico
Mexico Before the Spanish, Mexico was occupied by a large number of Indian groups with very different social and economic systems. In general the tribes in the north were relatively small groups of hunters and gatherers who roamed large areas of sparsely vegetated deserts and dry lands. These people are often called the Chichimecs, though they were a mixture of several cultural groups who spoke different languages. In the rest of the country the natives were agriculturists, which helped to suppo

A Bomb The creation of the Atomic bomb was one of the most profound military, as well as technological achievements of the twentieth century. Nuclear technology has made it possible to have dependable electricity in our, as well as many other countries. It also acts as a war deterrent in some ways, this is so because no one wants the world breaking out in Nuclear war fare. It would surely bring an end to man kind as we know it. In this essay I am going to give a history of the Atomic Bomb, while
Downsizing
Downsizing
Downsizing Downsizing has both positive and negative aspects. In most cases I believe that the business benefits most. When downsizing occurs a company is able to cut costs and reorganize, in essence becoming more efficient. This newfound efficiency in the long run benefits everyone because companies are able to provide quality products at lower prices due to lowered production expenses. Certainly the employees who are dismissed in the process of downsizing do not immediately (if ever) benefit f

Acid Rain INTRODUCTION: John F. Kennedy once said, “The supreme reality of our time is the vulnerability of our planet.” This vulnerability has never been so obvious as it is when we consider the devastating effect of acid rain. Acid rain destroys entire ecosystems and jeopardizes our health. The destructive power of this silent killer is evident to everyone who visits the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. The issue of acid rain is not just a local problem; the effect of acid rain on the e

The Voyage to the New World First of all, King Ferdinand of Aragon and Queen Isabella of Castille got married in 1464. The main reason that they got married was to unite their kingdoms into Spain. The king and queen were Roman Catholic, so they gave power to certain people to convert non-Catholics to Catholicism. In 1482, the Roman Catholic monarchs renew the reconquista, the military crusade ordered to conquer the remaining Muslim state in Iberia, Granada. In 1492, the Roman Catholic monarchs

The Manhattan Project The Manhattan Project was the code name of the U.S.’s attempt to construct an atomic bomb during World War II. It was named after the Manhattan Engineer District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, because a lot of it’s earlier research was done in New York City. An atomic bomb is a weapon that uses the energy from a nuclear reaction called Fission for its destruction. The idea that mass could be changed into energy was predicted by Albert Einstein in the earlier part of t

Located in North Las Vegas, Nevada, the primary mission of Nellis Air Force Base is the training of pilots and flight crews in realistic air combat exercises. The vast, Connecticut-size Nellis Range Complex, north and west of Las Vegas, is attached to the base. It contains at least two secret bases, Groom Lake and the Tonopah Test Range, both used for the testing of advanced technologies. Further south of Groom Lake is Papoose Lake, sometimes known as Site 4 or Dreamland. This is the supposed

Savannah was founded in 1734 by James Edward Oglethorpe, when he journeyed there from England at the age of 36. It took Oglethorpe a scarce three weeks to lead a reconnaissance over an unfamiliar land, meticulously select a site for Savannah, instill treaty agreements, and lay out the city, along with numerous other things. What Oglethorpe and most of the earlier settlers saw when they first arrived was less than enchanting. The river was continuously polluted with dead animal carcasses, the cl

All through history man always seems to be at war In some cases he is
All through history, man always seems to be at war. In some cases he is the attacker, in others the defender. In both cases, these wars are broken down into two basic elements, the battles that are fought and the individuals who fight them. In The Red Badge of Courage, Stephen Crane talks about conflict, courage, fear, cowardice, heroism, victory, and defeat. These elements make up the exploits of war we record in our history books. This paper will deal with war, more specifically, a special ex

Animal Testing
Animal Testing Using animals for testing is wrong and should be banned. They have rights just as we do. Twenty-four hours a day humans are using defenseless animals for cruel and most often useless tests. The animals have no way of fighting back. This is why there should be new laws to protect them. These legislations also need to be enforced more regularly. Too many criminals get away with murder. Although most labs are run by private companies, often experiments are conducted by public organi

When people associate racial background with America, most people automatically think of European ancestry. This misunderstanding of what America is, causes many problems in the country. The lack of recognition of various racial backgrounds and minority groups has been all too common, since the very beginning when America was thought of as a New World. The native people of the land were treated like they were foreigners and eventually stripped of their own land. When the country started to deve

Aztec Empire The Aztec Empire History The center of the Aztec civilization was the Valley of Mexico, a huge, oval basin about 7,500 feet above sea level. The Aztecs were formed after the Toltec civilization occurred when hundreds of civilians came towards Lake Texcoco. In the swamplands there was only one piece of land to farm on and it was totally surrounded by more marshes. The Aztec families somehow converted these disadvantages to a mighty empire known as the Aztec Empire. People say the em
