As one of the earliest settlement areas in North America, the Maritime region has been an emblem of heritage roots throughout the course of Canadian history. Often referred to as a symbol of regional sovereignty, historians have labelled the Maritimes as a pioneer of the earliest commerce and trade activities. It is for this very reason that many have alluded to the Golden Ages of the Maritimes, a period marked by regional economic growth. With a pre-existing maturity in the fishing, logging, farming, and shipping industries, the technological improvements brought by industrialization at the turn of the 19th century led to the boom of industrial bases for steel and coal markets. This enabled the three provinces to capitulate their geographical advantage since the area was abundant in coal deposits, and lead to one of the wealthiest expansions in Maritime history. As Acheson famously points out, the local attitude was that despite transportation problems, it would still become the industrial centre of Canada because only it had commercially viable iron and coal deposits, and only it could control Montreal fuel resources. Why then, did the end of an era dominated by manufacturing lead to an economic stagnation that left a permanent imprint over the course of the century? Over the years, historians and economists alike have deemed a variety of factors as accountable for the general economic backwardness that prevailed. While some of these academic research pose contradictions amongst themselves, the general proposition is that the phenomenon was driven by a mixture of social economic rationalization, political incentives, and geographically inherent conditions. To shed more in-depth light on the analysis of the Maritime experience, a preliminary examination is required on the various proposals of when the downturn started. These different arguments on timing serve as the framework, and derive fundamentally different conclusions as the reasons causing the pecuniary difficulties. For instance, historian Kris Inwood claims the early decline of Maritime industry, finding signals that indicated the end of the boom era in 1870. T.W Acheson and Richard Caves, however, take on the converging view that the decline initiated in late 1880s, though their reasons differ. David Alexander is notable for claiming that earlier declines are side-effects of the global Long Depression, and that the Maritimes' backwardness was only relative, since the rest of Canada benefited more from the boom of the early 1900s compared to the region. Perhaps the most controversial view is posed by E.R Forbes, who claims that the downturn was due to poorly implemented post-war railway policies as late as 1919. These differing opinions on timing lead to diverging views on the root causes, all of which may be classified into two general categories. One conceptual perspective examining the regional differences on manufacturing is known as Structuralism. This associates Maritime development with loss of local control over political and economic decision-making. Employing a policy-based approach, advocates of Structuralism argue that Maritime backwardness is due to a series of government policies that are unfavourable to the region. Economic stagnation in this sense is due to external factors, and the resulting consequences may have been avoided. On the other hand, the Staples Theory claim that economic production is largely dependent on geographical and technological conditions surrounding the environment. In line with Innis' Staples Thesis, this school of thought attributes Maritime backwardness to inherent factors beyond the region's control, and employs a less critical and more passive view on the government's role. As supporters of Structuralism have noted, significant contributors to the declining Maritimes industries are government policies. Inwood claims that “an inward-looking or continentalist Central Canada dominated the political union and established…

responsible for these changes was a guy named Marius. One of the major changes that he made is that no matter how rich or poor you were you were allowed to fight in the army no matter your financial status as long as you were fit enough for combat. This was great for those with no social status or money because it gave them a career to pursue. They were also promising land for any soldier who enlisted and served their whole time so that brought people from all over eager to serve their army. He also…

All over the world, they shunned and fought their tyrannical and selfish governments and sought better more just ones. All of this was driven by nationalist thoughts to live equally, come together and live freely. The Nationalist Movements impacted Latin American and European nations and caused them to uphold the ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity.

Any history before 1960 for full-line discount stores would have to be traced back to the basic discount stores. This would begin with small apparel stores in New York City around 1910, although they did no begin to take shape until the late 1940s and early 1950s. The industry began to take shape in the 1950s with the launch of innovative merchants such as Caldor…

Child Labor Paper
Child labor was indeed a horrible thing, but there were those who tried to justify it as right. Some thought it was not at all a problem and were very much fine with it. Those people only knew one side of the story, their side. What they did not know was all the cruelties and horrors of child labor. Or sometimes they just cared about their own benefit how much money they could make and how little they could pay the workers. Take David Dale who was a factory owner. He employed…
This is a paper about Down syndrome. I will attempt to explain the definition of Down syndrome. I will tell how a child develops down syndrome as well as some of the characteristics of the disease. I will also explain the hereditary factors, as well the different types of down syndrome. I will also delve into how down syndrome is detected in children before they are born.
Down syndrome is a genetic condition that causes delays in physical and mental growth. It occurs in 1 out of every 691 children…
have computers like we did now. This is a disadvantage to our grandparents because instead of having to send mail that takes days to get where it needs to go we can just email the person and it goes to them right away. Technology has helped in our favor over our great grandparents.
Sanitation has also gotten a lot better over the years. The way that plumbing is set up now is far superior to how it was back when my great grandparents were my age. I think that this has made the life expectancy…
