The 2001/2002 winter had 17 percent fewer skier visits compared to the winter of 2007/2008. This difference in skier visits resulted in $54.3 million in lost revenue. Some might attribute the difference in snowfall from year to year as a natural occurrence because in realistically no two winters will have exactly the same snowfall totals. However, there is evidence that shows there is a trend of shorter winters with lower-snowfall totals. Over the last century, the northeast United States has seen the average annual temperature has increased by 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. For New England specifically, average winter temperatures have increased 4.4 degrees Fahrenheit over the last 30 years. This temperature increase has greatly affected snow fall in this region. Snowfall has decreased 10 – 60 inches (depending on the region) and decreased the average snow cover season by more than 15 days over the span of only 30 years.
Sitting Bull (c.1831-1890) was the Native American chief under whom the Sioux tribes united in their struggle for survival on the North American Great Plains. After the discovery of gold in the Black Hills of South Dakota in 1874, the Sioux came into increased conflict with U.S. authorities. The Great Sioux wars of the 1870s would culminate in the 1876 Battle of the Little Bighorn, in which Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse and a confederation of tribes would defeat federal troops under George Armstrong Custer. After several years in Canada, Sitting Bull finally surrendered to U.S. forces with his people on the brink of starvation, and was finally forced to settle on a reservation. In 1890, Sitting Bull was shot and killed while being arrested by U.S.
Sitting bull was born in 1831 in the Dakota Territory. It was common for people of the Lakota tribe to have many names throughout their life. Sitting Bull’s first name given to him was Jumping Badger. Later his name was changed “Tatanka-Iyotanka.” This is a term that describes a buffalo bull sitting on its back haunches showing aggression and its reluctance to back down. Throughout his life he would live up to this name. Sitting Bull was only 14 years old when he experienced his first battle. This battle was a raid on the Crow, another Indian tribe that was enemies with the Sioux. He was appointed chief of the Lakota in 1857. His first encounter with American soldiers was in
Pit bulls are the most misunderstood dog breeds in the world. When people hear the word pit bull they automatically think of dogs fighting and attacking. When people say "pit bull" they're usually referring to a range of breeds and, often, a mixed-breed dog. (Lawrence, C Louisville Magazine Feb 2007) People think they are a very dangerous breed of dog. Because of this, some areas do not allow pit bulls and breeds like them. Pit bulls are the leading culprit of dog bites in America, but on the other hand, they are the gentlest dogs people will ever meet. The National Canine Temperament Testing Association
Cesar Millan who has his own show on Nat Geo Wild called Cesar 911 works and owns his own pit bulls. He has had a dog named daddy who was raised with Cesar since 4 months old. Cesar had a large pack of dogs so it made daddy well socialized and never aggressive with other dogs. Daddy with two small boys of Cesar’s laying and sleeping on daddy he got the best play time with his kids and was calm and soft with Cesar’s kids. If other dogs were being mean to him he would just walk away and not start anything(Millan). With that in mind I feel that pit bulls are misunderstood and can be very good pets if raised with the correct and proper training. These dogs might look mean and aggressive If the dog is trained by someone to fight they will take the most time to open up.
Pit bulls have been given a bad reputation over the years as untrustworthy, ill-tempered dogs, whose behavior may transform at an indiscriminate moment. While the slowly expanding owners of this breed continuously fight that reputation with cute posts, blogs, videos, etc. of their beloved furry baby just being your everyday companion. My Pit bull however, is not doing much for the cause. Her name is Lexi, she is a ten year old black and bronze brindle that has grown into a jealous, stubborn dog that has become disobedient in her old age. My dog, Lexi is on the fence for a bad reputation.
