Canada

The team scoring the most points after two halves, of varying length from competition to competition, and overtime if necessary, wins. Most popular in North America, lacrosse is Canada's official national summer sport and the fastest growing sport in the United States 11. Culture Canadian culture is a mixture of British, French, and American influences, all of which blend and sometimes compete in every aspect of cultural life, from filmmaking and writing to cooking and playing sports. It has also been influenced by American culture because of its proximity and migration between the two countries. American media and entertainment are popular if not dominant in Canada; conversely, many Canadian cultural products and entertainers are successful in the US and worldwide. Canada is a...

Topic - Canada 2

About twelve million tourists come to see the beauty of the falling waters on the border between the United States of America and Canada. The Horseshoe Falls, which lie in the territory of Canada, are much bigger and have more strength than the American Falls. People can enjoy the sight and the noise of the waters from boats which take them right next to the falls. And to stay dry people receive waterproof clothing. Parts of Canada are very mountainous and the tallest mountain in Canada is the Yukon's Mount Logan, which is 6050 meters tall. Canada has many mountain ranges. In the east there are the Appalachians, Torngats and Laurentias. In the western region there are the Rocky, Co...

Bridges presentation

The cables of suspension bridges act in tension, pulling inwards against their anchorages. If two or more beam or girder spans are joined together over piers, they become continuous, a form favoured by European engineers, who had the mathematical knowledge to analyse the indeterminate stresses introduced by such systems. A case in point is the Town lattice truss invented by Ithiel Town, an American , in 1820, which is a rare instance of reverse techno- logical transfer. The form originated in the USA, but was widely adopted in Europe, especially in iron railway bridges. The lattice fell into disfavour in the USA, where a preference existed for statically determinate bridges of heavy timber, whose forces were easier to calculate. A more complex form of the beam is the truss, a rigid self- supporting system of triangles transferring both...

Democracy in the US

On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress issued a Declaration of Independence, primarily written by Thomas Jefferson, a farmer and lawyer from Virginia. This document declared that from that time the United Colonies were no longer colonies of England, but free and independent states named the United States of America. Moreover, the Declaration of Independence set forth some of the principled of American democracy. With help from France, the American armies, led by George Washington, a gentleman farmer from Virginia, won the War of Independence . The peace treaty was signed in 1783. During the war, the states had agreed to work together by sending representatives to a national congress. The agreement that set up this plan of cooperation was called the Articles of Confederation. The Articles of Confederation failed because the states did not...

Like the huge stone statues of Easter Island and prehistoric cave paintings of Altamira and Lascaux, North American Indian rock art is surrounded by an atmosphere of mystery. Although examples of rock art exist at some 15000 sites in canyons, deserts, caves and river gorges. Nowadays, however, primitive rock art in the United States has become a new field of scientific study. Klaus F Wellmann wrote two books about rock art. He is a professor of medicine. Rock art represents the history of aboriginal Americans. In the most cases the art is an expression...

Even today there are tensions bettween the British people and the French people and it threatens the unity of Canada. When the British took over they didn't change much in French traditions . They allowed the French peole to keep their religion, civil law system and language. The British didn't want any French people to try to break away from Britain. From 1775 to 1784 many British came to Canada from American colonies. It was so because of the American Revolution. Americans were fighting for their independence from Britain.

USA

The waters of the Five Great Lakes have their outlet into the Atlantic Ocean by the St. Lawrence River, flowing mostly across the territory of Canada. Climate Almost every type of climate can be found in America, because it's very big. It's arctic in Alaska and tropical in Florida. The climate is not usually temperate, in spite of the latitude. The North American landmass heightens the variations in temperature and rainfall. Most of the country has a moist continental climate with hot summers and cold winters. There are no natural barriers either in the north or in the south. This allows dry and cold air flow in from Canada and warm, humid from the Gulf of Mexico. In this region summers are very hot and humid and rainfall decreases to the west as a result of the rain shadow created by the West Pa...
