The Socioeconomic Reason As To Why Inner-city Schools Are Often Academically Inferior to Suburban Schools and Provide Less Opportunity to Students

The reason inner city schools are often gravely underfunded and therefore poorly equipped to provide and meet even the minimum standard of education required by U.S. law is because of the way in which racial integration changed the United Stated of America. Often referred to as “white flight”, as African Americans migrated from the southern U.S. towards the north, many Caucasians became increasingly aware and uncomfortable with their neighbors, particularly of the direction in which their cities were headed. This caused many Caucasians to move away from the city and into suburban areas which resulted in the majority of the Caucasian population no longer being emotionally or financially invested in what occurred in the city which they once resided in. This lack of interest alongside the push by Caucasian’s to ensure Caucasian tax dollars went towards areas of self interest, namely the suburbs surrounding these cities, caused less and less income to flow or even trickle into the city alongside fewer and fewer people who cared what occurred politically inside the city. Over time, inner city educational districts became markedly worse off and gradually this new low came to be accepted as a new normative standard, while suburban school districts had an opposing trajectory as they statistically became able to offer a better standard of education, also being accepted as a new normative standard. This gross dichotomy between the inner city and outer suburbs continued to occur for decades which is why post World War II, the U.S. educational system has been in constant disarray and need of improvement in respect to the opportunities afforded to students to acquire the information they need to compete and succeed in life. The irony of this situation is that no nation on Earth is better equipped to resolve such an issue as the U.S. is the wealthiest nation to have ever been formed

The Importance of the Diatom to the Earth

diatom

4x thinner than a human hair, the diatom is the secret to the Earth’s oxygen supply. Diatoms utilize silica from ground up rock to create new shells which allow them to reproduce. The population of the diatom doubles every single day during their reproduction cycle. Each diatom can perform the process of photosynthesis and provide the world with oxygen as a byproduct, enough oxygen in fact that 1 out of every 2 breaths taken in by every living human being has been created entirely by diatoms. Diatoms aren’t only vital when they are alive, they’re also incredibly important after their deaths because their carcasses slowly fall to the ocean floor and then carpet the ocean floor in a layer 800 meter thick. This phenomenon is often referred to as “marine snow”

Highest Elevation at Which People Live

In La Rinconada, Peru, the entire village of La Rinconada lives as high as those who make base camp on Mt. Everest before attempting to scale its peak. When Spanish settlers first landed in La Rinconada, most lost their infant children shortly after birth because oxygen levels are half of what they are in comparison to most other places on Earth. The reason people stayed and continue to stay in La Rinconada is because of the gold which can be extracted from the nearby mountain ranges. La Rinconada is the absolute highest elevation at which humans can live, as anything considerably higher would cause organ failure which is often quick and difficult to detect by oneself resulting in death in many cases

The Commonality Between Herbivores and Size

elephant-herbivore

The largest land animals on Earth today are all herbivores, but this was also true during the age of the dinosaurs. In descending order, the 5 largest living herbivores are the African elephant, the African bush elephant, the Asian elephant, the white rhinoceros, and the hippopotamus. The only living animals which are larger in size than these creatures are whales. Whales are not herbivores, but being a herbivore within the ocean is actually quite uncommon. The only reason whales are able to become larger than the largest land-dwelling mammals is because of the way that the ocean displaces gravity, therefore providing resistance to the pull which would under normal circumstances cause whales to collapse under their own weight. The primary reason the largest land animals are herbivores is because of food resources. There are a staggering amount of plant resources made abundant for herbivores in comparison to the relatively small amount of protein rich resources available to carnivores. Plant resources are also quickly renewable unlike protein resources. Herbivores are apt to survive predation as they increase in size whilst carnivores actually become hindered as they increase in size due to the fact that they become slower and less agile making their ability to catch prey severely reduced

Zoroastrianism and its Relation to Noah’s Ark

zoroastrianism

Zoroastrianism is one of the world’s oldest monotheistic religions, founded by the prophet Zoroaster in ancient Iraq, approximately 3500 years ago. The central God of the religion is a deity named Ahura Mazda, who is often depicted as sitting inside a winged disc. According to the Zoroastrian text referred to as the “Vendidad”, it was foretold to the prince Yima that a future cataclysm was on the horizon which included a long serpent making it’s way to the Earth ushering in a winter unlike any seen before, perhaps interpreted in the modern day as an asteroid strike. Yima was provided detailed instructions to build an underground asylum referred to as a “vara”. Yima was also instructed to collect a vast seed bank repertoire and to collect a male and female of every animal used for livestock. It is hypothesized by some scholars that this story was mistaken and transcribed wrong which lead to the advent of the story of Noah’s ark
