They operated as a joint-stock company that allowed them to sell shares of stock in their company and use

Introduction: Literature offers a strong and passionate voice for the past. The literature of the Native Canadian is a voice we, the people of Canada, can no longer ignore. There is little to be gained by dwelling on the past. Nevertheless, there is much to be realized by accepting what has passed, with all of its mistakes and dust we might otherwise wish to hide under the carpets. English literature, since at least the sixteenth century, has a firm grounding in Canadian history. As a white Ang

As long as the human race has been cultivating the soil, we have had to deal with other vegetation that ends up competing with the crops. People have tried many methods to get rid of these pesky weeds but they always seem to come back. This eventually led to development of pesticides and herbicides. Herbicides allowed people to kill off the unwanted weeds. Over time these herbicides became more and more specialized allowing them to only harm certain weeds as needed such as broad leaf killers. O

Generally, feminism means the advocacy of women's rights to full citizenship--that is, political, economic, and social equality with men. Feminism encompasses some widely differing views, however, including those advocating female separatism. Modern feminism, which was born with the great democratic revolutions of the 18th century (American and French), differed from its precursors in applying the democratic implications of the rights of man and the citizen to women as a group.
