it represented a strong government. Obviously, if you were buried with the vessels you were very high in power. The Vessels were often given to thank military officials, or people that were high in power and had done something very good for the emperor. These were very rare. The Rhinoceros’s were actually very rare in ancient China.
INTRODUCTION The Peoples Republic of China is rich in cultural and natural diversity. and is listed by biologists as a ‘megadiversity country'. Since 1950, when China embraced modernity, the forests have been indiscriminately felled reducing forest cover. This has threatened biodiversity, causing drastic declines of mammal and bird counts, recurrent flooding and erosion, and recurrent snow disasters. These not only threaten global climate, but undermine the livelihood of the local people and great loss of life and damage downstream.
Furthermore, the Mandate of Heaven was also ... ... middle of paper ... ... send their children to the University. In Japan, education alone was the most beneficial Confucian value, as it taught both loyalty and obedience to the often violent culture of aristocrats. In conclusion, both the value of education and the Mandate of Heaven were significantly beneficial to most East Asian rulers. Education provided social stability and loyalty, not to mention the obvious benefits of having an educated bureaucracy. The Mandate of Heaven, although not useful in Japan, proved to be of key value to both Chinese and Korean rulers as it validated their legitimacy to rule.
I also found it somewhat interesting that those who were in command of fleets and armies in China were mostly eunuchs. These eunuchs were fiercely loyal to the emperor. Levathes describes in depth how prisoners would be castrated and become eunuchs. Zheng He was the commander for Zhu Di fleet of treasure ships. Despite him being a eunuch he was not the stereotypical one; he had a big, booming voice and was about six feet tall.
Even so, life in Egypt hadits risks. When the Nile? flood waters were just a few feet lower than normal, the amount of fresh silt and water for crops was greatly reduced. Thousands of people starved. When flood waters were a few feet higher than usual, the unwanted water destroyed houses, granaries, and the precious seeds that farmers needed for planting.The vast and forbidding deserts on either side of the Nile acted as natural barriers between Egypt and other lands.
Secondly, acid rain damages the trees through the soil by releasing metals that harm them even further (Lucas, 72). Acid rain makes the trees lose their leaves, so when the trees try to regrow their leaves, buds come instead, this process is called a panic shoot (M. 15). Large land areas which used to be covered with forests are now gone, dead or dying (Baines, 21). Around the 1980’s more than half Kotto 2 of the trees in Germany had signs of acid rain damage (Edmonds, 14). Now it is known that acid rain is one of the biggest contributing factors in the death and deterioration of nature.

They created a unique style of art and literature as illustrated by the poetry in the Book of Songs about the Tang Dynasty. Sun Tzu’s Art of War is still read today and referenced by business, military and political leaders. The Great Wall of China, the Chinese script and Confucianism are not the only contributions of the great Chinese civilization.
It strips forest soils of nutrients and damages farm crops. Acid rain can also corrode stone buildings, bridges, and priceless monuments. Acid rain can also be harmful to humans because acid rain kills the crops and fish we eat, ruins homes, and the acid can release lead in the pipes and the lead could go into our drinking water. It is hard to determine where acid rain may fall next, because the wind from a pollueted area could carry pollution to another area and the acid rain could fall there. The regions effected more by acid rain is large parts of eastern North America, Scandinavia, and central Europe.
Introduction China is one of the most populous countries of the world with over 1.3 billion people and covering a geographical area of about 9.6 million square kilometres. It lies on the eastern end of the large Asia continent and enjoys a remarkably long coastline. It has a large economy, given the large population and a wide array of natural resources especially mineral resources which are the backbone of its economy. With a well cultivated constitution that was put in place by the largest political party, the Communist Party of China (CPC), China has reforms underway aimed at closing the otherwise wide gap between the rich and the poor. The country suffers employment deficit, despite having one of the world’s largest economy.
When the Zhou Dynasty ruled, they had created a multistate system of government. Because of warfare the culture changed dramatically. Philosophies such as Confucianism, Daoism, and Legalism were introduced, and developed. Because of the demographic structure of the land the main crops in northern China was wheat and millet. While in southern China rice was a prime crop because it was warmer and wetter.
