Escalante mining

Discussion by: RichStrehl on Sun, 2014-04-13 23:25 with 0 comments

In this essay I talk about the factors behind mining in Escalante utah. Some people think mining would stimulate the economy and others just want the park how it is. I take the side of leaving Escalante how it is and being able to enjoy all the surroundings it has. I couldn't imagine seeing trucks, machines, and workers tearing apart such a perfect piece of art. Read this and try and understand why mining is a bad idea and could ruin one of the greatest places on earth.

I made a DIY stabilizer that consisted of a few different parts. It had metal elbows, a thing called a black nipple, and some metal screws. This project costed under $10 and was super easy to put together. It is used for keeping the camera steady and being able to film different angles. It is fun to use and is super useful when skiing.

A 17-year-old student at the Webb Schools, discovered the fossil in 2009 on a field trip to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah. Researchers say that what he found is the most complete known specimen of the tube-crested Parasaurolophus a six-foot skeleton with a distinctive bump on the top of its head. The dinosaur died when it was about one year old and looked like a duck.

grand stair case

My project is about the Escalante mountain range and how the climate and environment has changed over the past few years. I have been researching different places in Escalante like the Grand Stair case and the Escalante river. The climate in Grand Staircase-Escalante is temperate and arid, with annual precipitation averaging about 10 inches. From June through early September thunderstorms advance from the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Mexico and southern California.

Orwell's article about politics and the English basically explains just how bad our English is getting. He basically states how none of us are really original and decide to take other peoples work to make our lives easier. It is much easier taking the easy path when someone is done with their work. He also says how our thoughts are basically foolish and we don't think about what we say.

More about The denver airport conspiracy

Discussion by: RichStrehl on Tue, 2013-11-12 16:24 with 0 comments

Going off of my recent post about the Denver airport conspiracy Ive had many opportunities to learn more about this topic. I learned more about how the murals were made and what some people think is the back story behind the murals. The artist John Matthews drew them and died soon after so no one is able to explain what his ideas were on the back story of them. The sculptor built a blue horse with red glowing eyes to keep the demons away and the horse head fell off and killed him in the process.
