GKE1 Task 3 A, A1, B, B1, Aubert
Part A, A1
What is colonialism and how did it affect North America? How did the natives respond? Colonialism is the characteristics of a specific colony of people that have established a new territory yet still is under the authority of the parent country that sent them.
In 1607, the king of England sent an assembly of employed men to North America with a dedicated purpose to establish new business for increased wealth, first colonized in Jamestown, Virginia. They were greeted by the Indian natives and a peaceful relationship was formed. They established a union of trust and traded goods such as corn, tobacco, metal tools to name a few. As time went on, the Indian natives were apprehensive and suspicious regarding the colonist’s agenda and soon stopped trading. As a result, the colonists began to die for lack of food. The colonists retaliated by force, initiating raids, stealing food, and then burning the native’s homes. English monarchy sent a fleet for reinforcement which led to the massacre of the Indians thus allowing them to take governmental control over the colonized land and bring the English domain to the New World. The Indian Massacre of 1622 is one example of war. This was a war in which both sides tried to annihilate each other. It had begun when the Indians realized that the settlers were mainly concerned with taking all their land away from them. If it did not help the colonist then they would fight the Indians. This continued for several years until the execution of the Indian chief. Then the tribes began to become smaller even beginning to live among the colonist. Some would even live on reservations set up in Virginia.("Indian Massacre of 1622," n.d.)

...relevant to basketball players because they need to maintain control over the ball. Too little inflation and the ball will not bounce high enough for them during dribbling to continue forward at maximum speed to score or they will not be able to pass the ball on a bounce because the ball may not make it to the next player. Too much inflation and the ball may become erratic and not go where it is intended during a pass and will be much more difficult to handle while dribbling. Literature Review The NBA (National Basketball Association) is the governing body for professional basketball in North America. In order for a basketball to meet regulation standards for professional games, the NBA states on page ten of their rule book in section II.f.(1) “ The ball shall be an officially approved NBA ball between 7 ½ and 8 ½ pounds of pressure” (National Basketball Association, 2013). The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) states in its rulebook in section 16, article 7 that “when [the ball] is dropped to the playing surface from a height of 6 feet measured to the bottom of the ball, it will rebound to a height, measured to the top of the ball, of not less than 49 inches when it strikes its least resilient spot nor more than 54 inches” (National Collegiate Athletic Association, 2014). It is standard for the NBA, FIBA, and NCAA to use only leather bound balls. The ball must be a maximum circumference of 29 inches according NBA and NCAA standards. The NBA does not list a......

According to Britannica Educational (2011), “As the muddy streams flooded and receded, their silt built a plain rich with soil, ideal for agriculture (p. 10).” In order to develop a civilization and not have to move around like nomads there must be adequate resources.

...LET1 Task 3 Influence someone has over another is known as power. Power can be good or bad depending on how it is used. If power is used wisely it can help an organization. Used poorly, however, power can be detrimental to those involved. There are five bases of power and all are seen in the given scenario. These five bases can be divided into two main forms of power. The first form of power “is based on an individual’s position in an organization” (Robbins & Judge, 2007, p. 471), this is also known as formal power. This form of power encompasses three of our five bases of power. The first that is included is a fear based power known as coercive power. The second is based on rewards and acknowledgement and is known as reward power. The final base covered in the first group is legitimate power. Legitimate power is created by a specific title or position within an organization. The second form of power is personal power, and encompasses the remaining two bases of power. The first base of power covered under personal power is expert power. Having skills or knowledge that someone else does not is expert power. The last base of power is referent power. “Referent power develops out of admiration of another and a desire to be like that person,” (Robbins & Judge, 2007, p. 472). All individuals possess a degree of personal power. As mentioned previously, all five bases of power are represented within the given scenario. Coercive power, the first base of power, is......

Gke Task 1

...GKE 1 Task 1 One of the significant geographic factors that contributed to the development of early human society was Mesopotamia (Mark,J.M. 2009). This area is now known as Iraq. Mesopotamia means “between two rivers”; the Euphrates, and the Tigris Rivers. There are human settlements there that date back to 10,000 BCE. This land was known as the Fertile Crescent. This made it possible for nomadic peoples to settle the land, domesticate animals, and start agriculture. Mesopotamia was mainly an agrarian society. The main jobs were crops and livestock. The soil of the Fertile Crescent made it possible to raise crops. From 10,000 BCE- the 7th CE, there were several periods of development. Once the Muslim conquest took place in the late 7th Century, the ancient Mesopotamia ends. One product that was diffused throughout the globe is tea. In early times, tea was only used for medicine. After many centuries, tea became a popular drink in China (Columbia University, 2015). Tea slowly spread through Tibet, Mongolia, Korea and Japan. In the seventeenth, tea started to expand into the western world. During the following century, tea was common place in England. From the UK, tea was brought to the colonies in America. In 1773, the colonists threw tea into the Boston Harbor, in protest of high taxes the British imposed on tea. This was one of the major events that lead to the American Revolution. When James M. Marshall discovered a gold nugget at Sutter’s Mill in 1848, the......

Gke Task 1 History

...Themes in U.S. & World History Task 1 A – D A. Mesopotamia is an area that lies between Euphrates and Tigris rivers, northwest of the bottleneck at Baghdad, which is modern Iraq. Mesopotamia is a region, not a country. According to Fagan (2001), people of this region were able to flourish due to the successful agriculture. The fertile soil and excellent irrigation lead to a surplus of food sources. In reading The History World International, 2007, I found the Mesopotamian people were able to store and redistribute their supplies. This made them very valuable to neighboring societies and drew people in, which lead to the growth of the Mesopotamian society. B. Horses have been documented far back in history. In the Old Assyrian period between 1900 and 1750 BC. Anatolian people, however, were the first to use horses as a regular military feature from 1500 onward. The people needed a means to carry themselves and other weaponry for war and the chariot fit the bill. A chariot maker had to become an expert in every aspect of the building process. Right down to the horse’s bridles and bits had to be redesigned to aid in the proper fit for the chariot. The charioteers themselves rose to a new status class in their urban life. The use of chariots was either directly or indirectly responsible for weaponry being updates. New armor became necessary as well such as swords, spears and spikes. Everything was bumped up a notch in performance. Even the terrain for battles had to......

Gke Task 1

...Task 1-A One significant environmental factor that contributed to the development of human society was the availability of an abundant supply of water, as provided by the rivers that helped contribute to the ancient civilization in Mesopotamia. Mesopotamia, the area presently know as Iraq, is referred to as the “land between the rivers” (Hollar, 2011). In approximately 3300 BC, the people known as the Sumerians settled into an area known as the Plain of Shintar. In this area where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers converged, there was an amazing and consistent supply of water, which helped these people develop their way of life (Hollar, 2011). The largely watered area gave way to an abundant amount of rich soil. This soil provided the ability to build houses and create irrigation systems. These tasks required cooperation among the settlers, leading to the growth of their newly established government. The soil also allowed the Sumerians to benefit from the their agriculture. The first grown items were barley, emmer, olives, grapes and flax (Hollar, 2011). Task 1-B The process of the diffusion of tea between early human societies began as early as the first century AD. The origin of tea is not historically clear, although it is said to have originated in China (Saberi, 2010). Initially, tea was used for the treatment of various ailments, such as stomach problems and other illnesses (Saberi, 2010). During the Tang dynasty from 618-907 AD, tea earned the reputation of being......

...brought blight to the potatoes and created starvation and disease for the people of Ireland, as this was there major crop to feed its people. The government offered little help to the people in an attempt to make the Irish support themselves. These attempts went horribly wrong and many people died of hunger. The first wave of immigrants was caused by landlords attempting to get rid of non-paying tenants. They were loaded on ships and sent to Canada, those that did not die during passage found no help from the Canadians. Many moved on to the United States looking for a new life and assistance. 1848 brought another year of destruction to Ireland and its potatoes. This caused a massive amount of Irish to board ships and head to America. Nearly 1 million would arrive to the US during this time ("The History Place," 2000). By the 1850’s forty three percent of the United States was of Irish decent, but life was hard for these poor souls. It was the Civil war that helped these new immigrants get back on their feet by finding jobs, enlisting in the military and finally finding a new and better life. References Hughes, D. J. (2002).

...can be seen in the popularity of tea around the world. As per Chinese legend tea was first discovered in 2737 B.C.. Sometime around the 9th century tea was first used in Japan. Japanese monks studying in China brought it back with them when they returned to Japan. Tea drinking and ceremonies have become an important part of the Japanese culture. The Dutch were the first to import tea back to Europe. In the 16th century tea was shipped from China to Holland it was expensive and seen as a drink for the wealthy. Tea was fashionable in Holland and started to spread to other countries in Europe. In the 19th century the tea trade was dominated by the British and Dutch when they introduced tea to India and North America. (“Tea,”n.d.) C.1. The Louisiana Purchase Thomas Jefferson believed that westward expansion was vital to the nation’s growth and strength. This was not possible without access to the Mississippi River through New Orleans. France had gained control of Louisiana and blocked access to New Orleans and the Mississippi River. Napoleon Bonaparte needed money to fight the British and sold all of Louisiana 828,000 sq miles to President Jefferson for $15 million dollars.

None of the achievements of the remarkable ancient Egyptian civilizations would have been possible without the Nile. (ushistory, n.d.) It's population was contained, yet protected by a narrow 1,000 mile long stretch of highly fertile land. The Nile valley and the people that lived there were protected by geographical features. To the east and the west of the Nile were impassable deserts. North and south were protected by rugged highlands and deeply eroded valleys providing extra protection from outside forces.The Nile provided a means of food for early peoples being an area rich with fruit trees, vegetation and fish. It later became a center for agriculture. Having a fertile soil and long growing season the people of the area became excellent farmers. The Nile also provided a means of trade. Not only could goods be exported but lumber was able to be imported from Syria and the Lebanese woods that contributed to the great architectural structures of the period. (Orlin, 2007) The Nile was a central factor in the early Egyptian culture. It was so significant that the calendar was developed around the flood cycle. Not only did the Nile provide food, water and transportation. The reeds from the Nile were used to......

...GKE Task 1 Development of Societies The Nile River was a major environmental structure that contributed to the early development of society in Egypt. The Nile had such predictable flooding and recession patterns that farmers were able to create a yearly calendar based on them. This assisted them with knowing when to plant and harvest crops. Knowing when the water levels would be high enabled them to build reservoirs for crop irrigation during the times when there was less water. The river also contained silt, a mineral which enhanced the soil and the crops that grew along the banks. (Orlin, 2010, p. 284) Some of the major crops that were utilized included beans, cotton, wheat, barley, emmer, and papyrus, a reed that was used to make things like baskets, sandals, and boats. (Association, 2014) The Nile River opens to the Mediterranean Sea with dessert surrounding the east and west sides. Due to this layout, farmers were confident that their land and crops were protected from invasions. With this security they were able to focus on learning about their crops, excelling a food production, and eventually learned to do things like make clothing from cotton. (Association, 2014) Diffusion between Societies Chariots, two wheeled horse-drawn carts were first used by the Indo-Iranians in 2000 BCE. They were made of solid, heavy wood and held together with wood pegs. Being made of such substantial material could make them very difficult to turn and control. (Carney, 2014) Around...
