Industrial Revolution

The Untied States and Great Britain were at the for front of the Industrial Revolution, this revolution was a period between 1780 and 1850 of rapid scientific and technological change in these countries. Soon after the rest of the world would follow.

One of the big changes that happened during the Industrial Revolution was changes to manufacturing. New tools were able to transform the ways textiles, steel, food production, and chemicals were produced. This new innovation made it much faster for these products to be produced and in return led to greater productions. A single powered machine could produce more in one day that a single factory worker could in one week. This led to the ability to meet consumer demand on a much faster scale. These new machined also brought more uniformity to what was being produces, meaning the things such as screws, and fitting were able to be standardized and that led to a foundation if future technologies. These new machines were expensive investors had to pool their money together in order to buy them which contributed to the spread of corporation, and factory model of production (Soomo, The Industrial Revolution and Social Consequences).

Because of this new large scale manufacturing, occupations that people once relied on for work and income were now taken over forcing people to work in factories. Factory workers even included women and young children. This led to the breakdown of the family unit. Before factories manufacturing was a slower paced process, allowing for more freedoms, and family time. Families spent much of their time doing work, and activities together. Women were at home taking care of the house, and nurturing the children. Factory owners who wanted to make the most of their profit hired women, and small children. They were obligated to work long days, leaving little time for family…...

...Task 1-A: The two most significant environmental or physical geographic factors that contributed to the development or expansion of the United States is the California Gold Rush and the Irish Potato Famine. The first most significant factor was the California Gold Rush. Before gold was officially discovered in Northern California on January 24, 1848, Kelly (n.d.) states that the entire population of the California territory was around 25,000. A few years after California was admitted as the 31st state in The Union in 1850, a special census was taken and the population had grown to 223,856. Kelly (n.d.) also states that in San Francisco alone, the population was approximately 800 in 1848 to well over 50,000 at the close of 1849. Before the rush, California was a vast wild wilderness that most Americans never dreamed of visiting. There were tales of savage people and even more savage wilderness and it was widely known that lawlessness and general uncivility reigned supreme throughout the new Western Territories. These tales enthralled the general public but deterred most from doing anything but follow the stories through newspaper articles and books. But with the discovery of a gold nugget at a sawmill owned by John Sutter, all of this changed. Newspapers reported the great discovery and when U.S. President James Polk confirmed the rumors in his annual congressional address in December of 1848, the California Gold Rush was on! This rush came a time in history when......

...established at this point, strikes were often dealt with severely. Specialization, or doing work that is often focused on a single aspect of the production process, also became very common during this time. Workers who began jobs on unfamiliar machinery would often experience frustration and fear. Once they learned the job they developed mastery over the machines. For example, young women often worked jobs in weaving rooms. Most women during this time had no experience with working with any type of tools and the new machines were especially a big task for them to learn. One lady, Susan Miller, described her experience in adapting to mechanized factory work as initially being frustrated and fearful but eventually developing familiarity with the machines and becoming more confident and achieving a kind of mastery over the machines. (Zonderman, 1992). This was common for lots of other workers as well as they often performed one specific task of the production process many times per day. Mechanization changed the way people worked. The presence of power-driven machinery was very different from the types of jobs they were used to performing on farms or artisan shops. While some people were able to adjust and work in harmony with their machines, others struggled. Factories had changed the relationships between laborers, just as the relationship between producers was changing. References: Lewis, Robert D. (October 2003). Chicago, the mighty city.

...Task 4 Sarah Phillips Willow Bend Hospital’s compliance does indeed have multiple deficiencies and is in need of review as many were updated in 2009 and 2010. All information on deficiencies would be found on the latest updated version of the Joint Commission Information Standards. This should be located within the Corporate Compliance/Risk Manager’s office. As this information is not currently available to this writer without a subscription and fee, I must use the information available to me. So expansion and explanation of policy details are limited. In 2010, the policy addressing terminology and abbreviations was integrated into the Information Management standards as elements of performance 2 and 3 under IM.02.02.0 by Joint Commission. The hospital administration or HIM administration should have a committee to ensure the terminology and abbreviations are updated and distributed to all clinical areas, are posted within the electronic record system, and performed within specific time frames. The policy for addressing backup of electronic information systems can be found in Standard IM.01.01.03. The policy for managing interruptions to information processes is located within this Standard. This standard should be in the HIM department’s policy as well as IT department. The Medical Records Manager and IT Manager should maintain communication as to backups, updates, and scheduled downtime. IT will ensure all hospital employees’ awareness of any......

...Over the next 50 years over 4 million Irish people continued their immigration for mainly North America (Smith, 2011). It is estimated that in the 1840s, Irish people accounted for almost half of all the immigrants to the United States (Library of Congress, n.d.). Irish immigrants contributed greatly to America despite facing prejudice. They took jobs that most Americans were unwilling to, working hard to overcome poverty. The Irish were pivotal in the construction of the transcontinental railroad and other vital infrastuctural projects. References Chapman, J. (n.d.). History magazine - the impact of the potato.

...Meghan Fletcher GKE1 February 12, 2014 Task 1 The Mesopotamian society was influenced by many factors. The most significant factors that contributed to the development of Mesopotamian society were the Euphrates and Tigris Rivers. Virtually every aspect of Mesopotamian life was influenced by the presence of these two rivers. From the beginning, the Mesopotamian’s had to develop an irrigation system so they could better utilize the river’s water. From this point, water from these rivers became the building blocks their society was built upon. “The soil itself is largely a gift of the rivers, which deposit tremendous quantities of silt on their lower course and in the northern part of the Persian Gulf.” (Hollar, 2011) The soil consisted of clay and silt, the Mesopotamian’s then used the clay from the soil to make bricks to build houses out of. Crops flourished due to the rich soil, the irrigation system put into place by the Mesopotamians, making them a self-sustaining agricultural society. French fries, mashed potatoes, tater tots and hash browns: potatoes are a main staple in America and many other countries. They are found in almost every country in the world and date back to ancient Andean society. As the Incan Empire grew, it absorbed the nearby Andean Society, as well as their use of potatoes. When the Spanish conquered the Incan empire, they discovered the many uses of potatoes. The Spanish Explorers then brought them back to Spain. The Spanish then cultivated......

...GKE1 Task 3: A and A1 00039791 Tiffany Teague In the late 1800’s to early 1900’s the Europeans started the colonialism of Africa. Europeans chose to use their power to take over Africa for several reasons. Europe wanted to prove its political power and one way to do so would be to acquire new territories. Europe was also over populated in some areas and so they sent some of their population to Africa new establish new colonies. Europe also had an economic reason to exploit Africa. Africa’s territory would be able to provide much needed raw materials and would help with capitalist industrialization by meeting this demand (2011 Africana). This would also provide a much-needed monetary investment for Europe. The Europeans took over control of the waterways and other routes used for industrial purposes in different areas of Africa. Africa was such a promising place for many other countries to consider colonizing so there was urgency for Europeans to claim their stake in Africa (2011 Africana). There was a concern that it could even lead to wars with other countries trying to take over Africa at the same time as Europe. A German chancellor named Otto von Bismarck helped to protect Europe’s interest in Africa and scheduled what is know as the Berlin Conference (2011 Africana). This conference resulted in the Berlin Act to put into place. This was a treaty that would give standards for conduct of the European inter-imperialist competition that......

...Task 1 Carrie A. Nuxoll Western Governor’s University Themes in U.S. and World History/GKE1 March 10, 2013 Have you ever wondered about any great significant physical geographic factors that contributed to the development of our great United States? I must say, to do this, you must first look at the history of past great human societies trials and tribulations. For example, take a look a look at the history of Egypt and the Nile Valley civilizations. According to our course readings, Keita (2007) feels these ancient civilizations “were defined by the rich alluvial soils that annual floods deposited along the Nile banks and in the delta and the flood plains”. These annual floods gave rise to the development of these early civilizations by cultivating ingenuity, such as a rudimentary calendar, in which these civilizations could plan their years around cultivating the rich fertile land, and in turn, produced goods for these societies to make use of. This lead to the immigration of other societies to the area in order to flourish. With these immigrants came the process of diffusion. According to a PowerPoint created by our readings, diffusion can be defined as a geographic way of describing the way things spread [ (R. Whiting, 2014) ]. As course mentor Robert Whiting, of General Education Social Science states in his PowerPoint presentation, almost anything people think, make, or do can be diffused to another society and that people often change or adapt things to......

...GKE1 Task 2 Miranda Stewart Western Governors University   A) Martin Luther was born in Eisleben, Saxony, now Germany, in 1483 and died in 1546. (Martin Luther and the 95 Theses. 2013) During his 63 years of life he set in motion many changes that would take place in the world. His two most significant changes were his key role in the Protestant Revolution and the translation of the Bible into German, which later was translated into English, thus making it available for all to read. Luther was originally attending school at the University of Erfurt and training to become a lawyer when he was caught in a severe thunderstorm and, after nearly being struck by lightning, pledged that he would become a monk if he survived. Survive he did so he quit the study of law and entered an Augustinian monastery. While he stopped studying law he did not stop studying. His desire to study and learn led him to become a professor of the Bible and was eventually led to new understandings of the Catholic religion and the Bible. (Martin Luther and the 95 Theses. 2013) Luther penned his “95 Theses” in 1517 and nailed it to the door of the church that he was currently teaching at. While legend has made it something of a dramatic act of defiance, pinned to the door on a stormy night, it is much more likely that he was straightforwardly announcing his academic discussion that he was opening up. (Martin Luther and the 95 Theses. 2013) This posting, however he was intending it, hit too......

...GKE - Task 1: Geography and the Development/Diffusion of Human Societies Part A The Nile River was a significant geographic factor that contributed to the development of Egypt. This 6,695 Kilometer river; which is the largest river in the world contribution to Egypt's early human society in a way that is difficult to replicate. (The River Nile Facts, 2008). The Nile River provided drinking water for farmers and others who lived alongside the banks of the Nile. Also the Nile River floods predicted essentially how crops harvested. If there was too much water, the irrigation system could be damaged and if there was too little, there could be famine. This, however, did not deter the farmers, because they knew that this was their livelihood and their means of survival. The annual floods began from July to October. After the floods water receded, crops were ready for harvest from February. There were three seasons; the time of which the floods occurred , the receding of the water and the preparation for harvesting by preparing the soil and planting the seeds. There was also transportation of goods along the Nile River. This enabled the Egyptian civilization to attain economic growth. Therefore, it is clear what a significant factor the Nile River played and contributed to the development of Egypt. It's contribution was unprecedented.

...One significant physical geographical factor that contributed to Egypt’s development is the Nile River. The land surrounding Egypt is rocky and approximately 4% can be cultivated. (British Broadcasting Corporation, 2010) The Nile River remains gentle bringing fertilized silts to be deposited along the banks of Egypt. Seasonal flood season is July through August and by the end of October the outer banks of the Nile is water soaked. Egyptians tapped into the Nile River resources by building irrigation. Channels, dikes and basins were created in Egypt’s rocky topography to provide needed water for crops. (Orlin, 2010). The Nile’s water allowed barley, wheat and other chosen crops to flourish in the spring. The Nile River’s abundance of water attracted the Egyptians to settle and create an early society. The Nile River is clearly the reason Egyptians were able to flourish. B. The process of diffusion of the chariot. The first chariot is synonymously dated with the origin of the wheel. 2000 BCE the chariot was created as a hunting vessel around the East Ural Mountains. (Plubin, 2013). Transmission of the chariot was driven by fighting and war. In 1800 BCE Syria used chariots as a weapon. Civilizations and cultures followed using chariots as weapons. In 1700 Hittites used the chariot as weapons in their kingdom and in 1650 BCE Egypt lost to the Hyksos army of chariots. Over the years the Middle East, China and Europe proclaimed the chariot as the main weapon of choice.......

...George III to intercede on their behalf, but the King informed the colonist that they were in a state of rebellion. The Kings own words "blows must decide whether they are to be subject to this country or independent,” encouraged the act of war by the colonist. The British then started to march toward the city of Concord to take control of the arms and mutations that were stored there. The British Red Coats march through the town of Lexington and colonist militia fired the first shots of the war, and the British returned fire causing the start of American Revolution War. This news caused the second Continental Congress to come together and form the first colony government, and George Washington was to take command of the colony army. July 4, 1776 the United States of America was formed and declared itself independent from British rule. This helped encourage the French and Spanish to join as allies to fight against the British. This also provided Washington with better-trained troops and access to a Navy for support and was vital in turning the war effort in America’s favor. The strategy of guerrillawarfare was a primary means and an important way for the colonist to fight against a better-organized and prepared army. In the south a guerrilla militiaman named “Swamp Fox” continued onwith of many small victories. He prevented the British from getting supplies, and slowly depleted the British troops with hitting and running tactics. These strategies over time weakened the......

Gke1 Task 4

...GKE1 TASK 4 A: The two most significant social consequences to come from the Industrial Revolution include urbanization and the increase in child labor. Before the Industrial Revolution took place, over 80% of the population lived in rural communities (BCP.ORG). With the rapid growth of population in the cities came disease and epidemics. According to Patricia Chappine, the wealthy fared far better than the industrial workers. The wealthy were able to afford housing on the outskirts of the large cities, while the industrial workers lived in what was called row housing (CHAPPINE). Row housing was introduced by the government to give factory workers and their families’ places to live. Often times, these houses were small, and as many as six people would share one bed. Not only were the living conditions inside the homes a concern, but the sanitation of the cities were an issue as well. Waste disposal systems were not heard of, and residents often threw their trash and waste onto the streets (CHAPPINE). In addition, the coal from all the factories created a film of grime all over the city and polluted the air. Another consequence that came from the Industrial Revolution, was the rise and use of child labor. During the Industrial Revolution, the agriculture business declined, which forced entire families to move to the larger cities. In order to pay for the cost of living both women and children were forced to work in the factories. In the textile factories, children were......
