  1. I am trying to post a question about the timelines in A History of the Ancient World. Where should I post it? My copy seems to be missing Timelines #1-3. Timeline #4 is the first one I have in my copy (pg 29) with no explanation of the missing timelines. Weird.
  2. Thank you all very much. Each of you has given me quite a lot. I would comment on each of the posts but I don't see a 'reply to post' button. I am going to take a few days and read over the responses and the links....abundance of quality info here.
  3. I am looking for a general list of topics/skills needed for writing in High School. Something like, "In 9th they need to be able to write a friendly letter, compare and contrast, paper, persuasion, .... and be able to tell (fill in the blank) in a story/ novel." or even just a check list of all skills needed for writing in the 4 yrs of HS. I had a few of Kathyrn Stout's books for elementary and they were very useful. Anything out there for High School?
  4. Okay...embarrassing moment here...but I found myself. When I logged in it put another of my email addresses in and had me reregister (thought it was odd at the time, but like I said it has been awhile). Looked up old stuff I had saved and found the email my account is under. It's all there. The laurelmarie account can go, I'm Down_the_Rabbit_Hole.

  6. Thanks all....very encouraging info. Might have to contact you ladies with more questions IF the job pans out.
  7. Thanks for this info...very helpful. Right now we live in Iowa, but up until 3 years ago (our Iowa move) we lived in Louisiana all our lives. The cold does not scare me and have enjoyed the snow...actually looking for a place with more snow and less heat in summer. We love outdoor activities so the news about outdoor activities is encouraging. Housing is important though. When we moved to Iowa I was shocked at the housing or lack of it. Rentals are mostly geared to college students and the quality of the houses that are available for rent or purchase has been extremely hard to deal with.
  8. Hubby is looking at a job there and any info about the city would be appreciated.
  9. So why bother if there will be no dent in the problem? Why should we even try, according to you it will be a waste. I say even if one family is kept from starving then it makes a difference. My proposal was not meant to be the one and only "golden answer". It is meant to be one of many things we can do to help the masses of starving. Also I am about to vomit from all the evil west talk being thrown about here. Yes there are SOME from the west who hurt but newsflash there are SOME from other countries that are doing worse. Go cry a river elsewhere about the "rich, wasteful americans
  10. I am not saying make those who have live on less....I am saying take the extra, the part that is going to waste and distribute it. There are fields of food going to waste because of government involvement. If those fields were harvested and the food sent to those in need then who will feel the "less" you speak of.
  11. You were quick to point out the increase but what about the deaths? How many per year die due to old age, sickness, murder, disaster, war, and genocide? The 'too many people on the earth' argument leads to governments who start playing god: saying certain people can have children, others cannot, how many you can have, what gender, DNA screening, gender control, even a cap on age, blah, blah, blah..... Listen to the medical chatter now, it is all being discussed. Just recently I witnessed age discrimination and denying of healthcare because a person was "too old" in the eyes of the medical
  12. Not understanding the sigh... If you read my post that is what I said. There is enough resources on this Earth, the misuse and political mess to spread the resources are the problems.
  13. I don't believe in global overpopulation. Specific area overpopulation, yes. Some areas can sustain it's population where as others cannot due to resources or political mess. On a global level, there are enough resources to sustain life, it is a matter of finding ways to spread the resources to a global population that seems to be the problem. Saying that an area in Africa(or where ever) is overpopulated and the people are starving there should be the deciding factor of someone in a country/area with enough to have a child is just ridiculous.
