What Is Meant By A Shared Sense Of History

- 1. What is meant by a ‘shared sense of history’. Provide a brief summary. A shared sense of history is not just one thing; it’s made up of a collective number of parts. From the past and future perspective, it means taking acknowledging of the things that have happened in the past, and how we can relate to that in today’s world, in terms of an act or decision. And if there is a similarity between the two, you make your choice with that in mind.

Sharks

- INTRODUCTION Although sharks belong to the class Chondrichtyes, there are many different types. Sharks arose about 350 million years ago and have remained virtually unchanged for the past 70 million years and still comprise a dominant group. It is thought that sharks almost certainly evolved from placoderms, a group of primitive jawed fishes. It took a long series of successful and unsuccessful mutations with fin, jaw positions etc to give us all the different designs of sharks around today.
