I am from Bradford City, in West Yorkshire of Northern England. Me, and my mom moved from England to the United States of America. We decided to move after my uncle passed away during November, we traveled from Bradford, to Liverpool and had to go through a lot of very mental lines, paper works, and such just to get on a boat to travel over. The boat wasn’t as bad as people would imagine. The outside was rusty, worn down looking and as if it’d sink on any contact of water or weight. The outside of the ship creaked and from a first glance, looked as if someone dug it up from the bottom of the ocean. The inside though was air conditioned, with comfortable single beds. An amazing break area and supper area were they prepared loafs of bread, water and tea, wine and whiskey, and for all the sugar addicts there was a special section specifically filled with sweets crumpets and other after for anyone to grab, They also had afternoon tea time at 4 at the afternoon! The people who worked on the ship were some of the nicest men and women you’d ever meet and they wanted you to feel welcomed onto there ship and for the travel. The only cons of the travel were the annoying sea sickness from the stormy waves. Before the travel we had to wait a long very long time to obtain our green card and get a Visa so we could work. When we arrived on American soil, we had to go through the same deal that we did when we were trying to leave. Which were even longer lines, and even more paperwork? We got to our house and the first thing that we did was…
Older Ports Are Still In the Competition
Professor Tommy Rector
The port business generates many jobs, economic output, and tax revenues. The port brings thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in federal and local investment. When ports like Baltimore and Philadelphia were originally built, they were not built to handle the amount of tonnage coming through now. Back then there were smaller shipments and the trading process was not at a high. The older ports were primarily used for…
Around the 18701880 there was a major boom of immigrants coming into America on
steerages. Nearly 12 million immigrants arrived in the United States between 1870 and 1900.
During the 1870s and 1880s, the vast majority of these people were from Germany, Ireland, and
England. When all of the Eastern people came to America at once the United States had to at
least make a way for it to be organized and not have bad diseases come here. So they came up
with Elis Island; Elis Island is a shipping port that all of the Europeans had to go through to enter…
cruise industry is smaller (in operating cruise lines) than the North American industry, the number of cruise passengers has been growing faster in Europe than in North America.
Industry’s Dominant Economic Characteristics
The global cruise industry offers a combination of local destinations accessible through the cruise port and on-board amenities offered by the cruise ship. It carried about 20.1 million passengers in 2012, up from 7.2 million in 2000. The global growth rate of the cruise industry…
countries might have, on March 31, 1854, the Japanese signed a treaty with Perry. This treaty provided protection, from the Americans, to Japan; the ability for Americans to buy and trade coal, supplies, and water for their ships in Japanese ports; and it opened two new ports for American ships. After the signing of this treaty, the Japanese took off technologically.

a wonderful thing to have around the house many of us use it for coffee and other drinks that we love to have at our disposal. The article I read from the Wall Street Journal states that sugar is in high demand. The problem seems to exist in the port areas where the sugar is exported from. Brazil is the country we normally receive our sugar from and they have yet to harvest. There was a contract that was signed before Brazil’s harvest and it doubled the cost of sugar for us. Russia who has never…
Emperor Qianlong restricted European commercial presence to Guangzhou. (a port in southeastern China)
Europe had little that the Chinese wanted, but the feeling was not mutual
So, The British East India Company, used Turkish and Persian to grow Opium in India and have it shipped to China.
This resulted in a trade boom, this mixed with a weak Qing government (who was accepting bribes) led to about 40,000 chest of opium coming into Guangzhou in the year 1838.
Wars began after the Qing refused to…

Through this action, agriculture, trade, and exploration increased…
