The Northern and Southern Differences The Northern and Southern Colonies of North America were politically, economically, and culturally very different from one another. The origin of these differences grew from the differences in religion, economics, and social structures between the Southern and Northern Colonies. Slavery, manufacturing, education, and agriculture influenced the everyday way of life for the colonists. Agriculture and environment were factors in the way each culture grew. The fertile land of the south along with a warmer climate made it possible for the colonists to grow cash crops such as tobacco, rice and indigo. However, this was not the case with the northern colonies. The poor soiled, rocky and, mountain area and long winters made it hard for the colonists to raise enough food to feed there families. This made it necessary for the northern colonists to look their natural resources as a way to make a living. These natural resources included fish, whales, trees, and furs. The southern colonists did not have to develop all their natural resources because the farmland proved to be very reliable and profitable for them. Trade and manufacturing were ways that the colonist got the English goods they needed. It was also a way that they earned money by selling the products that they had grown, made or acquired. Since farming was not as important in the northern colonies as it was in the southern ones, a greater focus was placed on developing industry to strengthen the economy. The northern colonies manufactured and traded guns, molasses, rum, and printing presses. Fishing, whaling, and furring were also contributors to the economical growth of the Northern colonies. The economy of the south was mainly based on agriculture and trade. The slave trade also played an important role in the economy of the southern…...

The Northern Question

...GULU UNIVERSITY THE NORTHERN QUESTION BY HENRY EGYEYU Tel No: +256774366667/+256794366667/+256714366667/+256754366667 THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE NORTHERN CONFLICT IN UGANDA The origins of the wider northern Ugandan conflict may be sought among deeper issues that lie hidden beneath the surface of the day-to-day conflict with the LRA These root causes, which underlay the initial UPDA and other rebellions, are critical since they have never been resolved and if left unaddressed may again re-surface and cause renewed violence. Yet, although most commentators agree on the existence of deep-rooted causes, there is no consensus on what they are or, consequently, how to resolve the situation. Gersony emphasizes the “ghosts of the Luwero Triangle” that haunt an Acholi people who lost economic and political influence following Museveni’s rise to power, but a recent report by the Human Rights and Peace Centre, Makerere University (HURIPEC) argues that it was the NRM that initiated an ethnic war against northerners even before the events in the Luwero Triangle. These and other rival analyses can create difficulties for conflict resolution efforts, as key actors seek a clear idea of the issues to address. A more thorough investigation of these root causes is essential, particularly at a time when there is renewed hope that the conflict may soon be resolved and the deeper causes dealt with comprehensively. Based on field interviews and an analysis of the available literature,...

Why Florida Isn't Southern

...In the Past or the Present, Florida was never Southern The American South is a geographical entity famous for its unique dialect, a very different way of life, and of course, its fried chicken with black-eyed peas and cornbread. This is the homeland of an array of diverse Americans who can proudly consider themselves “southerners.” The region's fundamental definition lies in its pride of shared history and its peculiar combination of highly traditional cultural traits, a somewhat curious, often elusive blend created by various ethnic groups who have lived together for more than three hundred years. However one such state, large and populous as it is, does not meet this definition fully on. That is the proud state of Florida. Even as the southernmost state in the region, Florida lacks the same uniqueness of its neighbors, and its overall characteristics are more similar to that of eastern states and southern California. Florida originates from a different historical background and its culture greatly differentiates the state from the true Mason-Dixon states. Historically, Florida had usually been the odd one out. To begin, the state’s roots derived from a colony once controlled by the nation of Spain. Unlike the Carolinas under British authority and Louisiana under French rule, Florida was the only state in the south ruled by Spain until the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. As a Spanish territory, Florida maintained an economic and social connection with other Spanish......

Cicely is mixture of Native Americans and European Americans. Joel is having a hard time understanding the Native American way of celebrating Thanksgiving. He is only looking at the situation from his point of view. Joel is being very ethnocentric in his beliefs about Thanksgiving. He is basing Thanksgiving off of his own culture and is not understanding of the other cultures around him. Joel in being inconsiderate of the Native American way of celebrating Thanksgiving. Their way of life is very different to him. The type of food, music, decoration, or for example the throwing of the tomato is differences between the two cultures. The Native Americans kind of mixed Thanksgiving and Halloween together. They had bones, skulls, and skeletons hung up all around the town. The tomato incident was very difficult for Joel to understand. From his perspective he felt as if he did something wrong. He just couldn’t figure out why Ed had hit him with a tomato. Joel is Ed's first victim and he is angered because in his words he is "definitely not white. The throwing of the tomato was Ed's way in saying season greetings to Joel. In the Native......

Italian and Northern European Renaissance

...the Italian and Northern European Renaissance are the flourishing of the arts under powerful and wealthy families such as the Medici’s of Florence and in the north Philip the Good as well as many others. In both Northern and Southern Europe there was a strong desire to reconnect with the ancient past of the Greco/Roman world this desire extended beyond just ideals in art but also to philosophy and politics. The artistic endeavors of both the Northern and Southern Renaissance were dominated by their shared Christian faith, we can see examples of this in Jan Van Eyck’s Ghent “Altar Piece” (Benton & DiYanni, 2008, p. 353) at Saint Bavon Cathedral an ingenious polyptych painting which uses multiple panels to depict a religious scene an exciting blend of the Northern inventive spirit of the age and ancient faith. The works of the Italian Renaissance were also dominated by this Christian outlook possibly the most famous piece of art in the world Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel full of religious imagery while also boldly proclaiming the humanist philosophy. Both these examples show a shared Christian world view as well as a blending of new and ancient ideals capturing the multiple fronts on which society was leaping forward in the arts, sciences, architectures, politics and philosophies which characterized the Renaissance. Along with the shared ideals of the Northern and Italian Renaissance there were huge differences in how the Renaissance progressed in the northern countries.......

Giuliano Bugiardini’s, Madonna and Child with St. John the Baptist, Northern vs. Southern

...can be broken down and seen from Southern (Italian) and Northern paintings. With the renaissance, came disinterest in dogma, and more of a focus on naturalism and humanism. However, the strong influence of religion never left either the Northern or Southern art works, due to the commission by the church. Giuliano Bugiardini’s, Madonna and Child with St. John the Baptist, 1510, is a pristine depiction of what Southern European art during the renaissance contained, element by element. Northern artists kept most their roots, focusing heavily on religion while enhancing on the details and adding few aspects of naturalism; while Southern artists took more of a maniera greca and humanistic type approach, where religion and abstraction was in a conflicting battle with what was reality. The color, light, and shadow of Bugiardini’s, Madonna and Child with St. John the Baptist, emits a naturalistic feel that is seen throughout the whole painting. The painting’s main colors of brown and green are abundantly found in nature, usually representing trees, grass, dirt, etc. Mary’s red and blue gown contrasts with the rest of the scenery, making her stand out while emitting a calm (blue) but emotional (red) tone. The colors in the painting also seem to tell a story with a dull, dark brown in most of the foreground, and more vivid greens in the background. This could represent current dark times, followed by a future containing bright, happier times. Many Southern arts contained action in......

Southern Discomfort

...Analyze and describe the issues faced by Malescowski and the company and the reasons for these issues. Analyzing the case of Southern Discomfort, some of the issues facing Malescowski and Lamprey, Inc. are the high cost of labor, the ability to compete against companies in the same industry as far as price and the product quality of their goods produced at that particular facility. One of the major issues is that if the company decided to look at the option of opening a new plant in Mexico and cease operations in the town of Oconomo (Daft, 2010). This small town in Wisconsin would suffer greatly from the loss of lamprey, Inc. The town has a population of just over 9,000 people and the plant employs about 520 local workers. Some of the workers are a third generation employees of Lamprey making Jim feel guilty about the project (Daft, 2010). One difficult situation the company faces is the unionized labor. The company does not have a choice of less price labor. The company also faces the problem of having the current employees perform more duties to reduce cost due to union labor agreements. The reasons Lamprey is thinking of moving its operations elsewhere, could also be because of that the new location provides better opportunity to reduce cost, as opposed to expansion of an existing plant; Lamprey can take advantage of the market conditions in Mexico and the other movements that will be taking place with the move to be more competitive. There comes a point when in some......

Northern Drilling

...Northern Drilling Peter Bremner’s main goal should be to keep the business with Noranda while successfully winning both long-term specialized jobs for Mond Nickel Contract and buying 8 drills. The Company Northern Drilling is a profitable company (Exhibit 1). It was able to decrease its debt/equity ratio from 19,33% to 3,65% within one year (Exhibit 2) and at the same time managed to grow not because of its debt but because of its operations which underlines its financially sound condition. However, Peter Bremner is an ambitious person with a long history in the industry and he wants to secure Northern Drillings future growth. Mond Nickel Contract Because of the highly competitive Canadian exploration drilling industry especially for less profitable routine work, Northern’s growth strategy is to focus on long-term specialized work. A strong support for this strategy is, that Peter’s company has no further capacity in the deep diamond drills, however for all drill types the company only has a utilization of 75%. Therefore, the Mond Nickel Contract is the perfect opportunity to increase its infrastructure for and exposure to specialized work. Moreover it’s a great opportunity to diversify the company’s revenue sources. Currently, Northern is highly dependent on the revenues of Noranda Nickel (Exhibit 1). When comparing the different NPVs of the different options (Exhibit 3-6) and the respective income statements (Exhibit 7-10) assuming a depreciation of 10 years and a tax...

Northern, Middle, and Southern Colonies Compare and Contrast

...Justin Baker R. Brogan US History 1865 Midterm Essay #1: Question #1: Northern, Middle, and Southern Colonies Compare and Contrast America has always been a land of diversity but also a land of unity. This statement also applied to the first English settlements that were established here in North America. In the beginning years of America, the colonies could be divided into three regional areas: New England colonies, middle colonies and the southern colonies. Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island comprised the northern colonies; New York, Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania made up the middle colonies; and Virginia, Maryland, Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia composed the southern colonies. These three colonial areas had both similarities and differences that will be analyzed in respects to their economic base, political structures, and attitudes toward slavery established in these three regional areas throughout this essay. Although many different types of Europeans founded the colonies throughout the eastern seaboard they were some similarities as to how they were established and how they made their economic bases. Throughout the Norton text I’ve noticed that all of the colonies were established through some sort of business enterprise, whether it was through the Massachusetts Bay Company, or the Virginia Company, or even a lone entrepreneur, looking to make a fortune for them. These businesses were all expected to turn a profit, some of......

Southern Aspects of Gothic Literature

...ENG 102 06 May 2013 Southern Aspects of Gothic Literature Southern gothic writing is a sub genre of the gothic writhing that was originated and most popular during the 1800s in Europe. Southern gothic is unique to American literature in the way that it relies on supernatural, ironic, or unusual events that guide the plot (wisegeek.org.) Unlike gothic style it uses the tools not for the purpose of suspense, but to explore the social issues, and reveal the cultural character of the American south (people.duke.edu.) It is considered to be “Grotesque” which displays a character whose negative qualities allow the author to highlight unpleasant aspects in southern culture. Its defining feature is that it symbolizes problems created by the established pattern and then questions the established pattern’s morality and ethical justification (wisegeek.org.) Some of the other specific features that this style of literature has, is its freakishness; being an outsider; imprisonment; violence; and even the sense of setting in which it takes place(wisegeek.org.) There is usually an important character that is set apart from the world by some kind of negative way, or disability (wisegeek.org.) Some characters may not follow the established cultural pattern but in the end they are considered heroes. Some kind of difference allows them to see a new way of doing things that help bring people to the dark side. When speaking of imprisonment, it is both literal and figurative......

Differences Between the Italian Renaissance and the Northern Renaissance

...3. Explain the differences between the Italian Renaissance and the Northern Renaissance. Cite examples to illustrate your comparisons. Northern Renaissance took place in areas of Western Europe, north of the Alps. In that time artist were more focused on daily life. Beauty was found in everyday living and simplicity of life. Famous artists from that time like Peter Brugal painted pictures such as “The Peasant Wedding." Picture shows simple life of ordinary people attending weeding. Pictures like this has symbolic meaning and moral aspect. Pieter Bruegel, The Peasant Wedding, oil on panel, 1566-69 On the other side, the Italian Renaissance came much earlier than Northern Renaissance. The Italian Renaissance, had focused more on the wealthy class. Artist paid more attention to details to leave impression of wealthy and powerful people that they try to present. Background of that time give explanation why artists used to present that kind of life. Geographically Italy was very important in Mediterranean and it was one of the biggest centers for business. Therefore, individuals were becoming very wealthy and power of some individuals reached to political circles. The Italian Renaissance focused on religion as well. Popes were very wealthy and almost like kings in another societies. Oftentimes, paintings reflected themes of the Classical times, and some artists nearly copied the forms of ancient Greek statues and artwork. Based on that Greek Roman influence was very......

Southern Granulite Terrane

...INTRODUCTION The Southern Granulite Terrain is composed of a collage of crustal blocks with intervening shear/suture zones. The terrain has witnessed 550 Ma old granulite events (high temperature metamorphism) which occur well south of the broad Palaghat-Cauvery shear zone. It is evidenced that the Palghat Cauvery shear zone itself contains the older rocks like 3.0 Ga Sittampundi anorthosite and the younger Tiruchengodu granite of 660 Ma old (Bhaskar Rao et al., 1996). SGT is characterized by the presence of few major shear zones and deep crustal faults and is bounded by shear zone/fault immediately bordering the Kodaikanal hill ranges (Janardhan, 1999). Prominent among them are Moyar Bhavani, Palghat-Cauvery and Achankovil shear zones. These shear zones represent major terrain boundaries in south India. The major shear zones, E-W trending Palghat-Cauvery in the north and NW-SE trending Achankovil in the south, divide the SGT into (a) Northern Block (b) Madurai Block and (c) Trivandrum Block. The Northern Block composed of orthopyroxene bearing granulites and hornblende biotite gneiss and syenite and carbonatite intrusive bodies (750 Ma) that occur along Salem-Attur and Mettur shear zones. The triangular shaped land mass bounded by Moyar shear zone in the north and Bhavani shear zone in the south is known as Nilgiri block. Nilgiri block represents the deepest level of exposure (9-10 kb; palaeo-depth of ~ 35 km) of granulite grade lower crust in south......

Norfolk Southern

...Norfolk Southern The rail freight industry has had fluctuations in achievements with regards to various ways of shipment. The competition of shipment with various other means available in terms of sky and highway has made rail transportation less desirable. Rail freight is very inflexible; which is the reason why road freight transport has become very popular. The current status of rail freight transportation is not very efficient. In terms of the process of how Southern Norfolk and its associated transportation companies; there is not much cooperation regarding effectively swapping 40” boxes for 53” boxes. The issue came about decades ago when there were not enough 53” boxes so the focus was on creation of more 53” without much forecasting into the future of how this would ultimately affect the rail transportation industry. Norfolk Southern began operations in 1838 which connected two points in Virginia. Growth occurred rapidly for the company when they gained and additional 14 US states to service. President Mahone was responsible for the linking of Norfolk and Petersburg, Southside, Virginia, and Tennessee.
