Women in art- A virtual tour
Short Report 8

I decided to take a virtual tour of women in Ancient art. Women played a key role in history and it is very evidence in the artwork we have seen so far in class. Although I was unhappy with not being able to visit a museum in person, this assignment was still very educational and personal. I was on a mini vacation right in my own house.
The Venus of Willendorf.
My first stop was a look at the Venus of Willendorf. She is a statue of a woman about 4.3 inches tall. She was found in 1908. She is a Paleolithic figurine made from carved ivory, wood, and stone. She is the most famous of the Venus figurine during her time. At first glance you see a woman with features that are not pleasing to the eye. She has large breasts, large thighs, and a large stomach. She obviously is pregnant. She has no feet and her face is distorted. I think the face was distorted because they were symbols of fertility or mother goddess not necessary a human. Pregnant women today could defiantly relate to how she looks because most pregnant women may see themselves this way. The Venus of Willendorf was founded in lower Australia. One theory is these statues were meant to be carried. This could explain why archeologist believed where she was found was not the same place she was carved. The women during this period were just not cavewomen. They were inventors, religious leaders, and very good hunters. The Statuses of Mut My next stop was Egypt. It was here that I view a bronze statue of a mut. The statuses of Mut or sometimes spell Maut means mother goddess. She is a bronze statue located at the Kelsey Museum of Archeology in Michigan. The goddess of maut, author unknown was dated around 600-100BC. Her figure is very different from the one we view earlier. She is tall with a slender…...

Trail of Tears

...the the U.S., and the name of this migration was given the name the Trail of Tears. The migration of the Trail of Tears started i when President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act in 1930, which was setup up to rid the new American land of all natives and free it for all the new English settlers. This gradual process of removing these 46,000 natives tribes took place over a seven year span, between 1930-1937. This inter-regional migration of the the Native American tribes included the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, and the Seminole peoples. They were all from the southeastern areas of the newly colonized United States. Though the natives were not removed immediately when the English settlers arrived to America, because most of them did feel the natives did have a right to their land. For example, when the Europeans arrived in the early 1540’s the Cherokee peoples still lived in the Appalachian mountain area. English settlers started moving into Cherokee land more and more, and even signed treaties with them to settle trade agreements. Eventually the English had over run the Cherokee and practically forced them into selling their lands. These natives where very dependent on their land, and although they did make an impact on their environment the Cherokee and other natives alike working their best to conserve their lands (Perdue page 10). One passage from Perdue who wrote a book about the Trail of Tears shows just how important the land was for the people,......

Nature Trail

...Community College Nature Trail turned out very well. However, getting the information of the trail was fairly hard. I ask 5 people about the trail and only two of the five people I ask, new about the trail. Also, I couldn’t find anything about online. Well, I got all my information together and walked the trail. I was rather disappointed with it. The common knowledge, location, safety, and the condition of the trail were not up to date like I thought it would be. The common knowledge of the trail is pretty interesting. However, it wasn’t at first. I ask five people about the trail and only two of them new about it. The first lady that new about the trail told me she hadn’t been on it in five years. She also told me, that when she did walk the trail, that it was wonderful. She continued to tell me that there was a student body who kept it really nice. The other lady I ask about the trail told me that she hadn’t walked it in four years and that when she did walk it, she thought it was amazing. This lady also told me about upward bound and where I could find the trail. I found out that Pam Smith started the trail. Pam Smith is a biology teacher at MCC and she started the trail for her students. The location of the trail was not where I would have thought it to be. However, one of the ladies I ask about the trail told me where it was at. She said to walk out of the LRC building, go up the stairs and keep walking till you see a sign that says Nature Trail and has an arrow......

California Trail

...The California Trail carried over 250,000 gold-seekers and farmers to the gold fields and rich farmlands of the Golden State during the 1840s and 1850s, the greatest mass migration in American history. The general route began at various jumping off points along the Missouri River and stretched to various points in California Oregon, and the Sierra Nevada. The specific route that emigrants and forty-niners used depended on their starting point in Missouri, their final destination in California, the condition of their wagons and livestock, and yearly changes in water and forage along the different routes. The trail passes through the states of Missouri, Kansas Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, and California. Before the trail was blazed, the Great Basin region had only been partially explored during the days of Spanish and Mexican rule. However, that changed in 1832 when Benjamin Bonneville, a United States Army officer, requested a leave of absence to pursue an expedition to the west. The expedition was financed by John Jacob Astor, a rival of the Hudson Bay company. While Bonneville was exploring the Snake River in Wyoming, he sent a party of men under Joseph Walker to explore the Great Salt Lake and find an overland route to California. Early settlers began to use the trail in the 1840's, the first of which was John Bidwell, who led the 1841 Bidwell-Bartleson Party. In 1842, a member of the Bidwell-Bartleson Party returned to Missouri on the......

Bruce Trail

...Bruce Trail Hike One of Canada’s hidden gems and one of it’s most beautiful areas to explore; The Bruce Trail. This is a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment and is Canada's oldest and longest marked footpath. The trail runs throughout southern and central Ontario. It starts in the Niagara Escarpment of Queenston and ends in the northern part of Ontario, in Tobermory. It preserves over 8,000 acres of irreplaceable Niagara Escarpment landscape, 885 kilometres in length, and 400 kilometres of side trails. The trail is marked with white and blue rectangular blazes (painted lines). The white blazes indicate information and direction on the main trail, where the blue blazes indicate the same thought for the side trails. These can be found on trees, fence posts, and rocks. The land was always there for people to go upon, although the trail was official open in 1967 and is Canada’s original long-distance hiking trail. Myself and my class travelled in the Caledon Hills section and travelled ten to twelve kilometres of the trail. It took approximately three to four hours of a hike. When we left school around 8:30 in the morning, it took about an hour drive to get to the hills. While on our way there, we picked up and met our tour guide, Greg Vincent; the former President of the Bruce Trail Association. He is eight-years old and one of the most active people I know. When we got off the bus, we started our hike right away. Being able to go hiking on the......

The Trail of Tears

...The Trail of Tears: Cherokee Tribe November 16th, 2015 The Trail of Tears remains one of the worst human rights disaster in United States history. At the beginning of the 1830’s, more than ten thousand Cherokees were taken from their homes. They were forced by the United States government to leave their homelands because of the white settlers. They ended up in the future State of Oklahoma. By the end of the decade very few Native Americans remained in the Southern United States. However due to the horrid conditions, masses of them died due to starvation during relocation. It caused a large amount of stress among the Cherokee people. This difficult journey was known as the Trail of Tears. Migration from the original Cherokee nation began in the early 1800’s. Some Cherokees moved west on their own and settled in other areas of the country. A group known as the old settlers had voluntarily moved in 1817 to lands given to them in Arkansas. While there, they established a government. Later, however, they were forced to migrate to Indian Territory. They were not given an alternative if they “wanted” to move or not. It wasn’t up to them as far as decision making. The move was extremely difficult and treacherous. In 1835 the United States government used the Treaty of New Echota to justify the removal. Known as the Treaty Party, signed by approximately one hundred Cherokees, it relinquished all lands, and the promise of livestock, various precision tools, and other......

Trail of Tears

...Adsila: Journal Entry from the Trail of Tears There were ten million Native Americans on this continent when the first non-Indians arrived. Over the next 300 years, 90% of all Native American original population was either wiped out by disease, famine, or warfare imported by the whites. By 1840 all the eastern tribes had been subdued, annihilated or forcibly removed to Indian Territory west of the Mississippi (Cherokee By Blood; Trail of Tears, 2003). My name is Adsila, and this is my story. The year is 1839, but just barely. It is the second week of the New Year and cold here in Kentucky. We were all forced to leave our homelands in North Carolina and travel, mainly by foot, to the state of Oklahoma. Some of the elders, the sick and the young, have been permitted to ride in the wagons. Many have died from sickness, and I fear that most of the rest of us will not make it on the rest of this journey, which is only about half over with now (Cherokee North Carolina; Trail of Tears, 2010). Being that I am young, only 12 summers old, I do not understand why we have been forced to leave the lands of our birth. From things that I have heard the elders say, most of the reason we were forced to leave was because of the yellow rocks. The white man wants these rocks, because these rocks bring them money (Cherokee North Carolina; Trail of Tears, 2010) Money that they spend on our lands! The white man has brought nothing but trouble since they first stepped onto our lands. ......

Trail of Tears

...Trail of Tears At the beginning of the 1830’s about 100,000 Native Americans owned millions of acres of land throughout the southeast of the United States. These states were Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, and Florida, the Native Americans believed this land was the land their ancestors had, and their God had given to them. The southern Indians had plenty of land about twenty five million acres, virtually the entire inland south and were more numerous than the Northern Indian people. By the end of the decade very few Native Americans still remained in this land because the government forced them to leave their land because the white wanted their territory. White settles wanted Indian land because they wanted to grow cotton, and there was gold where the Cherokees inhabited. The Native Americans were forced to walk thousands of miles to Indian Territory, many of them died of diseases or hunger, and this is why it became known as the trail of tears. Most Native Americans belonged to the five tribes which were the: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole. The Choctaw were the first to negotiate for their land with the federal government in 1830 they agreed to give up their property for western land. The government in the other hand had no experience in transporting large amount of people from state to state so on the journey to their new land many Native Americans died from exhaustion, exposure, malnutrition and disease while traveling. In 1828 Andrew...

Fixing Hawaii Trails

...  Pauole 1  Kristina Pauole  Kathryn Fujioka­Imai  English 100  21 April 2016  Fixing Hiking Trails in Hawaii  Hawaii has over a hundred different types of hiking trails whether if it's hiking up to the  top of a mountain or to the bottom of a valley or to a waterfall.  But how many hiking trails can  we say that are safe to hike on especially the most popular hikes?  Over the years Hawaii's hiking  trails haven’t been safe due to weather conditions, erosion and lack of caution/warning signs and  proper maintenance.  If we funded and fixed these problems then I believe that the trails will be  safe to hike for both the locals, tourist and residents.  Over the years, hiking trails have been destroyed  due the weather, erosion, or trashed by  people and even by animals.  Problems like these makes it dangerous to hike on most of  Hawaii’s trails because of slippery slopes, loose rocks, dirt and branches.  According to a local  hiker, Fred Lino, he argues that when he's sliding down slopes, there would hardly be anything  for him to catch himself besides some broken tree branches along his way down.  He states that  on certain hikes there would be some rails or ropes to help hikers down but the rail and rope  would be so loose or old that it just breaks when there's too much tension and stress on them.  An  example he gave me would be when he was hiking Stairway to Heaven. Stairway to Heaven, also  known as the ​ Haʻikū Stairs or Ladder, is located in Kaneoh......

Trail of Tears

...Trail Of Tears “Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race.” ― Martin Luther King Jr The Trail of Tears was an unjust and On September 15, 1830, at Little Dancing Rabbit Creek, the Chiefs of the Choctaw Nation and representatives of the U.S. met to discuss the impact of a bill recently passed by the Congress of the U.S. This bill with all the same good intentions of those today who believe they know better than we how to conduct our lives, allowed for the removal of all Indian peoples to the West of the Mississippi River. It had been made clear to the Choctaw, that the Whites in Washington cared little for the Native americans situation, that either they willingly moved, or by military force they would be moved. were not ignorant savages, but industrious farmers, merchants, and businessmen of all types. We were educated people, many were Christians. The native americans had an organized system of government and a codified body of law. Some of these people were not even Indians, many strangers and orphans had been taken in over the years. The Chiefs and Warriors signed the treaty, realizing they had no option.(of what nation?) For doing this the government officials guaranteed, in the body of the treaty, (what treaty?)safe conveyance to our new homes. (where did you find this information?)(Do not forget for a moment that in this treaty, the Choctaw traded 10.3 million acres of......

Trail of Tears

...Native Americans ( Cherokee) Randall Cartright Eth/125 January/29/2012 Don Yost Abstract Native Americans ( Cherokee) They have faced migration, and annexation. Consequences: Extermination ( almost), expulsion, and segregation. Trail of Tears How? How could a horror have come from such an innocent act? A child sells a trader a rock. But greed unrestricted fears no God. And it has an appetite that can never be satiated. It has been my fate to have been involved in, and an observer of a nation turning it’s back on all of it’s most noble principles. How you recover from that will be left to posterity and the great Judge of all to address. For me it started when I was a young man back in the Smokey Mountain region of Tennessee. I was selected to go with the great Chief Junaluska to fight with the United States soldiers against the Creek. The Creek nation had aligned themselves with the invading British. Who could have believed that such bravery would be repaid someday with such treachery? It was Chief Junalusk’s idea alone to capture the Creek’s canoes at the battle of Horse Shoe and cut of their only means of retreat. It was Chief Junaluska’s quick action that saved Andrew Jackson’s life. I heard Andrew Jackson say to Chief Junaluska:” As long as the sun shines and the grass grows, there will be friendship between us, and the feet of the Cherokee shall be toward the east.” How quickly would those words become a mockery to......

There were ten million Native Americans on this continent when the first non-Indians arrived. Over the next 300 years, 90 percent of all Native American original population was either wiped out by disease, famire, or warfare imported by the whites. Nineteenth century, the United States forced the Cherokee Nation to surrender its homeland and relocate west of the Mississippi witch is the event known as the trail of tears. The term “Trail of tears.” A rough translation of the Cherokee nunna dual tsung, describes the trek of heart broken people to their new homes in the west. The discovery of the new world by European explorers caused endless problems for American Indians, whose homelands were gradually taken from them and whose cultures were dramatically altered, and in some cases destroyed, by the invasion. By the next two centuries more and more white settlers arrived, and the native cultures responded to pressures to adopt the foreign ways, leading to the deterioration of their own culture. During the colonial period Indian tribes often became embroiled in European colonial wars. If they were on the losing side, they frequently had to give up......

Trail Cameras

...Trail Cameras Also known as ----- Game Cameras/Scout Cameras/Wildlife Cameras/Bird Cameras/Surveillance Cameras What are they? A combination of digital imaging technology and passive infrared sensors which give you the ability to monitor the woods, homes, gardens, etc. The inexpensive models use a strobe flash and the more expensive models use a night vision flash (LEDs) which is invisible. Snapshots and Video capability to capture objects when the sensors go off mainly at night but can be used in daylight also. Typically they come with basic accessories such as straps and other fastening devices and with metal box containers. They come with cameras from 0.3MP (VGA) up to 12MP and more. However, most companies do not state the true sensor resolution anywhere visible prior to purchase but state the highest interpolation resolution they can (you may find the sensor resolution stated in some instruction manuals). What are they used for? Predominantly marketed for deer hunting (although images typically capture bears, mountain lions, etc.) they also can be used for general wildlife, in gardens, on ranches, home surveillance, birding, and other activities. There would appear to be a fairly large market for birding and general wildlife but only a couple of companies go after this market. One challenge to open up the marketing of this type of product is to come up with a name to capture all the markets (deer hunting, birding,......
