Deforestation of the Pacific Northwest
Deforestation of the Pacific Northwest One of the most controversial areas associated with the global problem of deforestation is the Pacific Northwest of the US. The problem can be broken down into several issues that all tie in together. These include the near extinction of the Northern Spotted Owl, the business aspect of logging versus the environmental aspect, and the role of the government in this problem. In 1973, the Endangered Species Act (ESA) was passed. This enabled the Dept. of Com

The Evils of Hunting Hunting is an unnecessary activity in the modern world. Slob hunting is the way many so-called sportsmen hunt these days. The phrase slob hunting refers to indiscriminate assault on animals, whatever their type. This type of recreation is harmful and undesirable the United States for three reasons: 1) It reduces the number of areas available for tracking animals, 2) It upsets the natural balance, causing many species to have their ranks drastically reduced, and 3) It can be

The American Indians were skilled hunters, farmers and used everything in their environment for survival or for essential necessities.

Slavery in the U.S. In North America the first African slaves landed at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619. Brought by early English privateers, they were subjected to limited servitude, a legalized status of Native American, white, and black servants preceding slavery in most, if not all, the English colonies in the New World. The number of slaves imported was small at first, and it did not seem necessary to define their legal status. Statutory recognition of slavery, however, occurred in Massachuse

Finally, in February 1861, against much opposition from the nobility and the landlords, Alexander II promulgated the long statute ending serfdom. The actual emancipation statue proved to be a disappointment because freedom was not accompanied by land. They had to pay the landlords over a period of forty-nine years for allo

My thesis statement is as follows: Unlike the opposition to a wider male suffrage, women’s suffrage was opposed not so much because people

To what extent does an individual’s social class affect their lifestyle and life chances?

Sociologists usually refer to these divisions as ‘strata’ therefore, the division of people into groups is known as social stratification. In British society today the most important divisions are those of sex, age, ethnic groups and social class, of which is t

Gun Control, a term that refers to the management of firearms in an effort to reduce the criminal use of these weapons. (MICROSOFT (R) ENCARTA 1995) In the early 1990s there were more than 200 million privately owned guns in the United States, which makes it plain to see why there are arguments for and against even the smallest amount of gun control. The Second Admendment to the Constitution of the United States, guarantees “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

The division of Buddhism followed there is that of the Northern School, which is known as the Mahayana meaning The Great Vehicle. The Himalayan people

The focus of Marx’s philosophical writings is alienation. He believes that social or psychological alienation arises out of economic or material alienation. In other words, consciousness is determined by material conditions, as opposed to the prevailing view of his day that said that consciousness determines material conditions. Another way of saying the same thing is, Life is not determined by consciousness, but consciousness by life. One’s material conditions in life result from one’s labor

Restoration is practiced in all sorts of ecosystems so that they do not disappear in the future.

Many peoples have contributed to the development of the United States of America, a vast nation that arose from a scattering of British colonial outposts in the New World. The first humans to inhabit the North American continent were migrants from northeast Asia who established settlements in North America as early as 8000 BC and possibly much earlier (see NORTH AMERICAN ARCHAEOLOGY). By about AD 1500 the native peoples of the areas north of the Rio Grande had developed a variety of different c
