picture of the interior of the Rouge plant. This picture is one of many conveyer belts in the plant. This belt is moving engine parts from the engine assembly to the final assembly. Henry Ford was a pioneer in the use of the assembly line in the automobile industry, and the Rouge plant was the ultimate in that use of the assembly line. This photo shows the depth of the plant, being able to manufacture all components of the cars without having to ship parts to or from other locations in the country
Leonardo Da Vinci, the revolutionary visionary of the Renaissance era. As the first Renaissance Man, he explored a multitude of interests and subjects. Those subjects and his love for learning made him the man we admire today. Like he once said, “Learning never exhausts the mind.” We see him as a scientist, an inventor, and an artist who can be accounted for many of our modern day inventions.

Transportation has become an essential part of our lives brought about by the industrial age. Vehicles like automobile, trucks, airplanes, trains and shipping vessels all use lots of fossil fuels to be able to function accordingly.

Large feedlots have other sources of potential chemical contamination in beef including use of “industrial sewage and oils in feedlot mixtures and aerial spraying of insecticides on feedlot cattle” (13). Furthermore, Rifkin indicts the human civilization and sheds light into the barbarous actions of men in the early development of the cattle culture. One of the most effective is in the chapter, "The
Leonardo Da Vinci didn’t follow what other scientists had back in his time. He made detailed observations of the world as he saw it. (Phillips, 118) Leonardo based only a little bit of his work on classical discoveries. Leonardo made his own views and methods on how to find out things. He was usually always right. Back then things were not as simple as they are now. When Leonardo Da Vinci asked a simple question he would most likely spend weeks, sometimes even months, just to figure out an
important for the Germans to not lose Vimy Ridge”(Stephens). If the Allies are successful in capturing the ridge, German position on the battlefield would significantly weaken.

For the Germans, winning this Battle was extremely important as the Ridge defended the Hindenburg line as well as the western front. The battle was important to win because Vimy Ridge was an important
