1. Ben Franklin, pointing to the sun carved on the back of the presiding officer's chair, remarked; "Throughout the days we have been laboring here, I have observed that sun, and wondered whether it was a rising sun or a setting sun. Now I know it was a rising sun."1 Throughout our lives we have been told of how our country was formed. I am here to tell you about the things the history books and teachers don’t tell you about the freemasons and there shaping of the United States of America. We will start with freemasons an agency that has been shaping history since the building of King Solomon’s temple.
As American labor leader and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez expressed, “Preservation of one's own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures.” Respecting everyone’s culture is a necessity, no matter their ethnic background, or if they stand out in society. Language, customs, food, and religion are all parts of a culture everyone possesses. All individuals have a viewpoint, a perspective of what cultures the world around them is compromised of. The culture in every human influences how they view the world around them by hiding one’s own culture, giving people biased views of others’ ethnicities, and weighing down the minority groups.
Canada is the second largest country in the world. Some of the major landforms include the Appalachian Mountains, the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, and the Canadian Shield. The Appalachian Mountains start in the middle of Alabama in the United States and run almost 2,000 miles North into the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Appalachian Mountains are in between the eastern Coastal Plain and the Interior Lowlands of North America and form a natural barrier between the two. The settlement and development of canada have had a role played by the Appalachian Mountains. The main reason the Appalachian Mountains are important is because of the mining. Mining produces a lot of jobs and money for Canada. In the northern part of Canada is the
For the amount of land it has, it has a fair amount of natural resources including petroleum, bauxite, iron ore, timber, and hydroelectric power,
Due to the vast physical diversity in our country, there are many different natural resources available ranging from oil to fish to minerals. Canada is number 4 on the list of countries with the most natural resources; it has 33.2 trillion dollars worth of natural resources. The interior plains have a rich source of salt, oil and natural gas. The revenue from oil was about 2.5 billion dollars in 2016 in Alberta. The Great Lakes-St.Lawrence Lowlands has an industry of hydroelectricity and agriculture. The soil is very rich and good for farming. The great lakes and the St. Lawrence River also provides a source of fish and fresh water which is exported. Hudson Bay and Arctic Lowlands has a lot of different kinds of natural resources (e.g., forestry, hydroelectricity and natural gas) due to the physical diversity. Most of the economy in this region comes from mining ( over 100 million dollars in revenues). It’s very important for us to try to preserve the physical diversity of our country because as we can see our economy is greatly affected by it. We have most of our natural resources because of how different our land is in
This is about a culture called Nacirema that is practiced in many different place and was brought to the attention of the Anthropologist attention by Professor Linton to talk about this culture that was poorly understood. The Nacirema is a type of culture that is summed up as that these people that believe in this culture that the human body is ugly and that the natural tendencies are meant to debilitate and cause disease. They are also big believes in rituals and ceremonies in the household to preform these ceremonies either as a family but in most cases it was privately. Where they would receive charms and other items form the medicine man of the community that would help with a certain problem. They would use these magic items to help with

My cultural ancestry comes from a Cuban and Mexican decent. I have chosen to write about my Cuban side because I can relate to them more than I could with my Mexican side. I was raised around my Cuban family and would occasionally see my Mexican side due to them living so far away. I have spent a lot more time associating with Cubans and have adapted to more of their habits.

The overall land of the Interior Plains slopes gently downwards from the west to the east. Below the surface of the Interior Plains are mineral deposits, the swamps that are on the edge of the ancients seas that once covered Saskatchewan produced plants that were eventually changed to coal which is mined today. A lot of the Interior Plains is marked up by glaciations, the glaciers left deposits that produced rounded, gently rolling landscape. The glaciers melted water formed a large lake, when the land rose the water from the ancient lake drained into the ocean and what is left of that large ancient lake are smaller lakes known as lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, Winnipegosis , and Cedar
Natural resources are materials or substances such as minerals, forests, water, and fertile land that occur in nature and can be used for economic gain, and Arkansas is rich with natural resources.
The Plains take second place! This region was created when soils by rivers and lakes from the Canadian Shield were deposited at this regions edge. In addition, sedimentary rock was formed from these deposits, which became huge areas of flat, fertile lands, river valleys, and rolling hills. To add, there are three flat levels and each consists of hills, cliffs, low mountains, forests, wide river valleys, and sand
Anthropologists have always had their discrepancies with the word culture and its background significance. There have been numerous definitions that have filtered through the field, yet not one that everyone can accept or agree with. Franz Boas, an anthropologist in the early 20th Century, and his students, had a difficult time figuring out the objective of what culture is. Culture is about learning and shared ideas about behaviour. Although Boas and his students had a slightly different idea in mind. They ultimately reached a conclusion, a definition of culture in their view that is a contradiction in terms. Boas sates that, “ culture was expressed through the medium of language but was not reducible to it;
The school atmosphere was different I was hanging with Caucasian girls and the African American children did not understand what I was doing being so close to children opposite of my own culture. At that point, I was unsure of what their problem was but realized they were sheltered from other cultures and raised differently. This caused several fights as a child because other children would call me a “little white girl” and I had no idea of what that meant and was offended. I was raised around majority boys in the neighborhood, until I started playing softball, some would consider me as a tomboy. So
I believe that schools have hidden cultural agendas, stemming from their policy makers collective cultural backgrounds, which controls what curricula is used, and how knowledge is taught within the system. I further believe that not all students fit the cultural mold defined by our schools, and that those students that find themselves outside the established "norm" cannot fully benefit from their school experiences.
