Modern Usages Of Camouflage Clothing

I've always found it rather ridiculous when people wear camouflage clothing in non-military settings. Kids sporting trendy "camo" gear don't seem to realize the irony of their apparel. Military camouflage clothing was created to allow soldiers to blend into their surroundings, thereby making them more difficult to see and harder to kill. In an urban setting, military clothes only serve to make the wearer more obvious, hence the irony. However, this incongruity has not stopped the modern fashion industry from using these camouflage patterns on pants, tops, hats, and just about every item of clothing worn by teenagers today. The popularity of military patterns in civilian clothing may have begun with the advent of military surplus stores. These outlets, as the name implies, sell excess military goods to the public, and these goods include clothing. Military-issue clothing became increasingly popular in the 1960s, when many civilians wore such garments in protest of the Vietnam War. Some protestors obtained thei...

 


Blackfeet Nations Influence on Functional Art

Throughout its long rich history, the Blackfeet Indians have endured one grueling struggle after another. The Blackfeet have survived war, disease, famine, pollution, attempts at social reengineering, and countless other attacks against their way of life.Since the beginning, the Blackfeet have passed their traditions, heritage, customs, art, dances, and stories down through the generations. They've held onto certain beliefs about culture, about religion, and about their way of life.But now, even though the Blackfeet Nation is on the cusp of making one of its biggest comebacks ever, the tribe may be facing its biggest battle of all: The fight to be Indians and to remain Indians.Preserving Native American heritageNatural Artist Dean Grommet understands that fight. He, too, harkens back to the days when animals and people roamed freely across the land. Little by little, Dean has seen the unrestrained ways of his youth disappear forever. He sees this happening not only in the land surrounding the Blackfeet Nation...

 


Indian Tribes of Montana - A Proud Heritage

The first people to inhabit the area now known as Montana were members of nomadic tribes that supple-mented their diets with native plants and sustained their existence by hunting buffalo and other mammals. Following the buffalo herds, these first people crossed the Bering Strait from Asia approximately 12,000 years ago and over time migrated southward. Archaeologists have verified evidence of a thriving tribal culture established west of the Rocky Mountains more than 9,000 years ago. Before the white man came west, Indian people roamed freely across this great land, following the gigantic buffalo herds that once covered the plains. For hundreds of years the native peoples relied on the buffalo for food, clothing and shelter. The bison was revered among the Indian Tribes as a bountiful gift from the Creator and were thus hunted with reverence and respect. The area now known as Montana was inhabited by two major groups of Indian tribes. The Blackfeet, Cheyenne, Crow, Assiniboine, Atsina and Arapaho tribes li...

The Wonder of Educational Toys to Your Child's Abilities and Personality

One of the main activities that a child can do during his or her younger years is play. Play enables the child to develop psychomotor skills that are expected for a certain age.

Underground Pet Fences To Help Contain Your Family Pet

Underground pet fences have become a popular alternative to having the family dog chained up for the day. When you own a pet you want to ensure that they remain safe and secure when running around the yard. However, there are some dogs that are masters at escaping and no matter how high the fence is, they will get out. The underground fence is not actually a fence, but a very clever radio signaled containment device.The underground fence works by transmitting a signal from the cables that are imbedded in the perimeter of the garden. They will be transmitted to the dog's collar ensuring that they do not pass over the cables of the underground animal fences. As the dog approaches the area with the cables, a warning tone that can only be heard from the dog is emitted. If the dog still proceeds to cross the signal is changed into a static shock.This style of perimeter fence is the perfect solution to dogs that wander, and once they have received the shock a few times they will not cross the underground fence.

The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined

Here is an interesting dichotomy while the speed of the Internet has made our globe just about one big planetary village, it has also made it seem more violent and malevolent, yet it is nothing like that at all.While not borrowing strictly from the Internet analogy, best-selling author Steven Pinker has debunked the notion that the world is a more violent place in his ground-breaking work.Putting violence in its historical context, which is essential in an era of smart drones and missiles with their targeted and very limited violence, Pinker's landmark work shows that, ultimately, violence is actually subsiding. Indeed, it has been violence that has marked much of mankind's existence since the first hunter-gatherers stood guard over their prizes, lest another tribe try to run off with the trophy.That, as much as anything else, has been the hallmark of mankind since the dawn of history. As far back as Nineveh or Gilgamesh (if you are into Biblical studies), you will find that violence was a way of life.The key...

 


Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948

No one could have known in the winter of 1937 that the world would turn upside-down within months as the Sudetenland and other "German" enclaves were taken over and a young girl - who was Jewish and didn't know it - watched.This is the story of a woman who would grow to become one of the most powerful people in the world half-a-century later as secretary of the United States. Madeleine Albright, born in Czechosolvakia, at a time when it wasn't healthy to be a Jew anywhere in that area of the world and her parents didn't know of their lineage and assumed they were non-Jews, as did the rest of Prague.It's a good thing that she was never matched because we would never have had the woman who worked so hard under President Clinton. And, she did work for years.Her book "Prague Winter" provides an excellent view of the pre-war and post-war periods of Prague as she would escape to London with her parents only to have Hitler's Luftwaffe try to level the city with their nightly raids with medium-ranged bombers.Albright...

 


The Price of Inequality: How Today's Divided Society Endangers Our Future

America, "land of the free; home of the brave;" where a little effort and effort will propel you to success, witness the Horatio Alger stories of the late 19th century where a poor boy started out with nothing and ended up with everything.That this was more mythos than anything else as you still needed a leg up to succeed (witness, the invention of the phone by Alexander Graham Bell. His famed "Watson, come here, I need you!" is part of American lore, but what you may not know is that Bell was a scion of the Grovesnor family, one of the country's leading families and he had powerful backing to "invent" the phone in 1879). In the dime novels of the time, Bell was portrayed as a poor inventor trying to create a new means for the deaf to hear.That dime novel was quite a page-turner and gave Horatio another venue in which he could succeed, but it wasn't really true. Indeed, as Joseph Stiglitz, author of book "The Price of Inequality: How Today's Divided Society Endangers Our Future", points out more than 40 perce...
