Canada: Metis Population - During the late 19th century, Canada’s relationship with its Metis population was strained and full of hardships. The conflict began with the transfer of Rupert’s Land from the Hudson’s Bay Company to the Government of Canada, without the consultation or consent of the Metis who resided therein. The Canadian Government sent surveyors out to plot land occupied by Metis people before the transfer was completed, and the survey team was met with opposition by a Metis party led by Louis Riel. The Metis formed a provisional government, and a pro-Canadian party formed to resist the Metis, but resulted in the execution of Thomas Scott, a Protestant whose death caused turmoil among English speaking c...   [tags: provisional government, red river colony]

Source Water Identification in Alluvial Aquifers along the Ohio River with Reference to Hydrogeology, Geochemistry, Stable Isotope and Numerical Model - 1.1 Introduction Groundwater is in contact with surface water. However, traditionally, groundwater and surface water used to be considered as separate water resources (Winter, 1998). Because of that, management of groundwater and surface water resources poses a risk of allocating the same water twice in the water budget (Geosciences Australia, 2013). Not only two resources are in close contact rather they do interact. So, Winter (1998) considered groundwater and surface water as a single resource....   [tags: groundwater, surface, water, resources] 1772 words

For the past one hundred and fifteen years, it has remained in print and has been one of the most widely studied texts in high schools and colleges.

Faulkner’s River of Time - William Faulkner envisioned time as something purely subjective, violently turbulent and yet that which could grant hope and redemption. Time became something that above all else (as it was to embody modernism’s study of medium rather than object) was definitive in understanding man’s approach to the world. Such was Faulkner’s idea of time’s consequence that he let it come sweeping down through the Compson siblings’ lives in his novel, The Sound and the Fury, hurtling Caddy, doomed, toward “dishonor and shame,” leaving Benjy, “neuter… eyeless…groping,” wandering lost in the past, unaware of any future, driving Quentin toward “oblivion,” letting Jason seethe in an endless rage, and finally p...   [tags: William Faulkner, Literary Analysis]
