North Carolina is where I currently live; however, New Jersey is my birthplace. North Carolina is a nice place definitely a different pace from the city life. Aside from that, North Carolina has some good benefits that you cannot find in the city i.e. fishing and hunting to name a few. My employer is the United States Marine Corps, been in the service for about eight years now and love every minute. The military is not for everyone, but I highly encourage every person eligible to look into one of the branches if not all. When I am not at work or doing schoolwork, I spend most of my free time working out, riding my motorcycle, and sleeping. Sleeping to me is a hobby because it does not happen to often throughout the week. Finally, my dream vacation will be in Rome, Italy because the passion and interest I have in Greek mythology – just find it amazing. Again, good luck to everyone in this course.
Hurricane Sandy swept through the Caribbean and up the East Coast of the United States in late October of 2012. The storm left dozens dead, thousands homeless and millions without power; total damage is to be in billions of dollars. Everyone knows about this late-season post-tropical cyclone, no need to address the horrific events. H...

...alances. For example, Hurricane Sandy damages property in Long Beach, New York. How can the environment be used to support this disaster? We can use the environment for industrial development to create new homes to relocate those with damaged homes. The government can provide resources or support to aid that family in restoring their personal property. With multiple cases, the policy can provide a balance in the resources that are expended for the humanitarian relief. We simply need the environment to develop our country and economy with our elected governor and mayor to lead the way.

- Everyone, hello and welcome to the Human Ecology course. Not sure about the rest of the class, but I am excited to take this course. Only in college can you pick your own science classes that spark an interest or intriguing thought – just wish high school was this way. This is the last science class that I need for my education plan; currently going for a bachelor’s degree in sports and health science. Looking forward to the next eight weeks and I wish everyone the best of luck with there studies.... [tags: FEMA, hurricane Sandy, environment, aid]

- Ever since the Pleistocene era, human societies have expanded rapidly, developing innovative ways to defend their territories and migrate across the land. Consisting of an aggregate of humans living together, these societies became more powerful as time progressed by consuming more meat (megafauna). Supporting this development, the more mammals that humans would eat, the more protein their bodies would absorb. When humans consume high amounts of protein, they develop stronger muscles, which leads to the stimulation of brain activity.... [tags: Human Ecology]

- “Given the serious worldwide dilemmas posed by population growth, why should we consider low fertility rate a problem?”(pg 340). I think this question raises a big concern for the human species in general. If the number of people on this earth is declining, that isn't necessarily positive. It is exceptional to mention that population studies weren’t that widespread before the Second war. People weren’t involved regarding however a population grows. In truth their evolving population was thought-about a mathematical analysis instead of a demographic one.... [tags: human ecology, population, analysis]

- 1) assumptions In this paper I discuss several assigned articles with regard to the assumptions, focus, time and space contexts, stated purpose, and comparison between certain articles. Except for one article, all articles in this weekly reading are assumed to use post-structuralist paradigm. In their article, Lobao & Meyer (2001) encourage the readers to use combination of macro, meso, and micro approach in understanding agricultural transformation rather than only macro approach. For example, they urge the Human Ecology Theory (PEP), which is micro theory about individual’s adaptation to the dynamic of environment like population density, culture and technologies, and bio-physical environm...

- Ecology is defined as the interconnections between human and nonhuman beings. Ecology addresses the full scale of life. The theme of ecology is commonly found in American literature. Such is the case of the memoir “Black Elk Speaks” written in 1932. “Black Elk Speaks” tells the story of a member of the Sioux tribe and a relative of Crazy Horse, named Black Elk. Black Elk was a witness to the Battle of Little Big Horn in 1876. Throughout this memoir, Black Elk narrates the horrors he witnessed happening during what was not meant to be a battle....

- Competition and predation are two key factors that affect the stability of an ecosystem, such as a lake. There are three theories on the affects of competition. Competition may lead to competitive exclusion, stable coexistence, or niche differentiation. It has been shown that in marine environments, species are strong competitors for both light and nutrients and thus competition leads only to competitive exclusion (Passarge et al. 2006). The competitive exclusion principle states that if two species compete for the same resource in the same location, then one of those species will go extinct because one species will be the better competitor (Jenson 2010)....

- The mistake of culture as timeless, knowledge as data Take a walk down Bourke’s main street and about midway, on the northern side, you will see a panoramic mural spanning the roofline of a simple brick building. It is a kind of timeline. At one end there is a panel devoted to Aboriginal life and Dreaming before colonisation, while the rest of the panels show a sequence of white exploration, pioneer settlement, a changing pastoral industry, reminders of historic floods, and a modern outback town....

- Where does all the plastic go. Every bit of plastic that has been created is still here. This is because plastic is one-hundred percent non-biodegradable. Even the most degraded plastic down to polymers cannot be digested by bacteria (Laist, 1997). If global issues like starvation and climate change are not enough to stress on, the weight of an issue literally churning in the Pacific Ocean is startling. For decades the majority of the world’s population has not been properly educated on the nature of plastic and the potential harm it can do to our environment and our physical health....

- Introduction: The intent of the study was to analyze the impact of human encroachment on concentrations of the bacterium known as enteroccocus in coastal waters. In order to evaluate impact of human encroachment, the research question, to what extent does the level of human activity and development in proximity to a saltwater source affect the levels of the bacterium enteroccocus present, was posed. This study is was undertaken because the United States recently changed the federal standard of water quality at state beaches from fecal coliform to enterococcus.... [tags: Ecology]

- All three theories by Heidegger, Bookchin, and Naess are based on the normative assumption: humans perceived themselves as being distinct from a world that unites both humans and non-humans. To better understand the distinguishments that each author makes in his theory, I will reconstruct each of their assumption. After that, we will explore the rational fashioning of integrative ways and the problems that it raises. In conclusion, there may be a reiteration of the assumption in our effort to act ethically according to the ecosystem.... [tags: Social Ecology]
