Peru

Peru

Peru is a country in South America located on the West Coast. Peru is the third largest country in South America behind Brazil and Argentina. Peru is a very diverse country with a very diverse population. This diversity is a result of Peru?s geographical features, separation of classes, and it?s ever changing economy an government.
Peru is divided up into three categories, the coastal plains, the Montana, which is the eastern foothills and plains, and the Sierra, which is the Andes mountain range. Some portions of these areas are desert, jungle, and mountain ranges. These many features separate the people in Peru and cause this diversity. The wealthier Spanish and Mestizos, or Spanish and Indian mix, mainly inhabit the coastal plains while the Montana and the foothills are home to the Indians. Although they live in different places, Peruvians share the same ancestry.
The people of Peru are mainly ancestors of the ancient Indians who once ruled there or they descend from the Spanish who colonized there. Peru is divided into two societies, one modern and prosperous, and the other outdated and poor. The ancestors of the Spanish being the modern and prosperous and the ancestors of the Indians being

YOUTH TOBACCO
It is estimated that more than 48 million adults in the United States smoke cigarettes. Tobacco use is responsible for more than 430,000 deaths each year, or 1 in every 5 deaths. The economic burden of tobacco use is more than $50 billion in medical expenditures alone. Scientific knowledge that smoking can cause chronic lung disease, coronary heart disease, stroke, and cancer of the lungs, larynx, esophagus, mouth, bladder, cervix, pancreas, and kidneys is well documented. Researchers have identified more than 40 chemicals in tobacco smoke that cause cancer in humans and animals. Smokeless tobacco and cigars also have deadly consequences, including lung, larynx, esophageal, and oral cancer. Women who use tobacco during pregnancy are more likely to experience a variety of infant health disorders. Nonsmokers are also adversely affected by environmental tobacco smoke (ETS). Each year, exposure to ETS causes an estimated 3,000 nonsmoking Americans to die of lung cancer and causes up to 300,000 children to suffer from lower respiratory tract infections. Evidence also indicates that exposure to ETS increases the risk of coronary heart disease.

Evolution Versus Religion

Evolution Versus Religion

?Did god create humanity in His own image and likeness, or was our species itself the product of physical change and adaption neither more nor less the rocks, plants, animals of this planet? What do you think And what are the hallmarks of humanity

Among philosophers, theologists, geologists, archeologists, paleontologists, and all of the other -ers and -ists that study and attempt to explain the many theories of evolution-people, or ?homo sapiens,? have struggled in agreement on accepting and proving one certain truth. Instead, we fathom the possibilities.
In comparison to the scale of the beginnings of the earth, about four and a half billion years ago, the existence of humans is thought to be merely momentary. And as long as humans have had the brainpower to think, they have contemplated their own existence. The scientific study of human ancestry began with the creation myth-stories attempting to explain the mystery of our beginning. In Europe the Judeo-Christian was tradition was the superior belief. ?According to a myth recorded in Genesis, the earth and everything on it (including the first people, Adam and Eve) were created by God over the course of seven days.

Niagara Canada

My visit to Ontario Canada was exciting and very informative. I have a friend named Shirley Holdesho that showed me around to some of her favorite sites. I didn?t think that there was going to be a lot to see in Canada but I soon found out that I was completely wrong. Shirley gave me some enlightenment on what her and her family likes to do.

We first went to the Butterfly Conservatory. It is in the grounds of the Niagara Botanical Gardens. It is the home to one of the North Americas largest collection of free flying butterflies. This time of year it exhibits showcases a wide variety of butterflies from around the world living in lush, rain forest like environment.

The Butterfly Conservatory features a 183m network of pathways that provide access for the physically challenged throughout the 1,022 square meter conservatory, allowing us to watch numerous species of butterflies floating among nectar producing flowers. They are open everyday except for Christmas. She told me that the Butterfly Park is one of Niagara?s premier and most popular attractions.

Yoga Theraputic Medecine

Yoga: Theraputic Medecine

In 1990, Jenny Smith?s mental illness became so severe that she could barely walk or speak. After days of feeling wonderful one moment and hallucinating that spiders and bugs were crawling on her skin the next, she landed in the hospital for the second time that year.
Smith is a victim of bipolar disorder, a possibly hereditary illness characterized by oscillating feelings of elation and utter depression. She had tried 11 different medications for relief, nothing seemed to work. Upon leaving the hospital, Smith was told that she could expect to be in and out of psychiatric hospitals for the rest of her life. Soon after her release, Smith decided to learn hatha yoga, which includes specific postures, meditation and pranayamas, deep abdominal breathing techniques that relax the body. As she practiced daily, Smith noticed that her panic attacks a symptom of panic disorder, a disease that approximately 20% of bipolar disorder sufferers also contend with–were subsiding. She is now a certified yoga instructor, and and now she takes Paxil, an antidepressant that shed taken before without effect, Smiths pattern of severe mood swings seems to have ended. She even taught her 11-year-old daughter–who had experienced panic attacks since

Facing Mt. Kenya

Facing Mt. Kenya

??I have tried my best to record facts as I know them, mainly through a lifetime of personal experiences?My chief object is not to enter into controversial discussion?but to let the truth speak for itself (Kenyatta xvii).?

Jomo Kenyatta?s Facing Mount Kenya is read as a work of anthropology. Kenyatta takes the reader through the birth, initiation, sex, marriage, family and death of every Gikuyu. Kenyatta?s primary purpose in writing this book was to give a ?true? description of the African culture. He uses his knowledge of the roles of males and females in the Gikuyu society to portrait a convincing Gikuyu society. He also tries to clarify the misunderstandings of polygamy and male and female circumcision.
Males and females both play important roles in the Gikuyu society. Kenyatta displays this by dividing the roles of males and females throughout the entire book. There are certain jobs that the man can only do and there are certain jobs that woman can only do. Kenyatta writes, ??the system of division of labour between men and women, at home and in trades, is very important among the Gikuyu (Kenyatta 84).? Pottery and basket making

Bulgaria

Bulgaria

The Republic of Bulgaria

A key factor in how Eastern Europe agrees with one another lies in the hands of Bulgaria. This country is centrally located between the countries of Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Yugoslavia, and Romania. The Black Sea is on the eastern side of the country providing easy trade routes to the east. Bulgaria gained Independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1878(world book). It was on the losing side of both world wars and was under communist rule until 1991. The reason for no long-term settlement has been the wars that continue to plague the area, even today. Eventhough the wars today do not include Bulgaria, their economy is greatly affected by any outbreak in the region. The Yugoslavia war in 1997 put Bulgaria?s economy in a hard downfall that they are just now getting out of.
Bulgaria is located on the Balkan Peninsula. It covers an area of 110,994 (km2). It currently has a population of 8,210,650 million people (World Book). This number plays a big part in the economic conditions of the country. Bulgaria?s statistical data for the economic year of 2000 is as follows:

Consider This Therapy For
The age-old set of exercises known in the West as “yoga” offers a significant variety of proven health benefits. It increases the efficiency of the heart and slows the respiratory rate, improves fitness, lowers blood pressure, promotes relaxation, reduces stress, and allays anxiety. It also serves to improve coordination, posture, flexibility, range of motion, concentration, sleep, and digestion. It can be used as supplementary therapy for conditions as diverse as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, migraine, and AIDS, and helps to combat addictions such as smoking. It is not, in itself, a cure for any medical ailment. But as part of the well-known Dean Ornish program of diet and exercise, it has contributed to the reversal of heart disease.
How the Treatments Are Done
Yoga exercises are usually conducted in group classes, although private instruction is also available in many areas. You should wear loose, comfortable clothing to the class, and should bring a “sticky” mat with you to prevent slipping during the exercises. No equipment is needed, although advanced students often use a strap to assist in leg stretches. Wall-mounted devices are sometimes available to help you maintain balance during difficult exercises.

Everyday Life In Ancient Rome

Everyday Life In Ancient Rome

The Family

In many ways the Roman family was like our modern day family, but some of their
practices we would think absolutely crazy. At the head of the household was the
paterfamilias; the oldest male member. This man ruled over everything until his death.
This included all property, earnings, the choosing of marriage partners, and the power of
life and death. Girls were married at a young age and had to supply a dowry that would
be returned if divorced. Like today, divorce, adultery, abortion, and birth control not
uncommon in ancient Rome. Although many of their methods were ridiculous.
Childhood ended at an earlier age than it does now. They would start school
around the age of six or seven. Secondary education was thought of mostly for boys
because girls should be married and taking care of a household by that age. This lasted till
about thirteen or fourteen, then they were finished with school.
Family slaves were fairly well off. They were allowed to eventually buy their
freedom from money that they accumulated but often would remain in the same house
with their family after freed. Some of the slaves that tutored the children were often more
cultured than their

When The Healthcare Parachute Fails To Open

When The Healthcare Parachute Fails To Open

I?ll never forget the look on my mother?s face that day at the pharmacy. Our insurance company?s server was down, which meant she?d have to pay full price for my prescription. As always, my being sick had worried her, but I think paying sixty dollars for a little box of just ten pills took years off her life. In the state of Texas alone there are 1.4 million children without health-care insurance (TexCare), and every time one of these children picks up a bug at daycare he/she sees the same expression on their parents? faces as I saw on my mother?s.
So what?s going on It?s a domino affect that starts with the rising cost of health care. Health care costs have increased by leaps and bounds, due to the use of expensive, technologically advanced equipment in treatments and the high cost of malpractice insurance for health-care providers, not to mention the need for pharmaceutical companies to recoup their research and development costs before they lose their five-year exclusive patents. Insurance companies have to pay claims based on these increased costs, so they raise premiums. Then, employers have to pay the high premiums
