Edit Edited by Glutted, Maniac, Sondra C, MrsB and 52 others Hardtack Crackers This recipe will teach you how to make hardtack using the original Union hardtack recipe used during the Civil War. Hardtack is a very hard flat cracker, and it was often eaten by soldiers during the Civil War and sailors during sea journeys.
What are learning disabilities? Learning disabilities, or learning disorders, are an umbrella term for a wide variety of learning problems. A learning disability is not a problem with intelligence or motivation. Kids with learning disabilities aren’t lazy or dumb. In fact, most are just as smart as everyone else. Their brains are simply wired differently.

These rings are caused by ice crystals within thin cirrus clouds , and there several different kinds of sun rings you can see depending on the weather conditions.
The Dawes Act of 1887 (also known as the General Allotment Act or the Dawes Severalty Act of 1887 ), [ 1 ] [ 2 ] adopted by Congress in 1887, authorized the President of the United States to survey Indian tribal land and divide it into allotments for individual Indians. Dawes Act was amended in 1891 and again in 1906 by the Burke Act . The Act was named for its sponsor, Senator Henry Laurens Dawes of Massachusetts. The stated objective of the Dawes Act was to stimulate assimilation of Indians into American society.
Abiogenic petroleum origin is a hypothesis that was proposed as an alternative mechanism of petroleum origin . It was popular in the past, but most geologists now consider it obsolete, and favor instead the biological origin of petroleum. According to the abiogenic hypothesis, petroleum was formed from deep carbon deposits, perhaps dating to the formation of the Earth .

Junípero Serra , O.F.M. , ( / dʒ uː n ɨ ˈ p ɛr oʊ ˈ s ɛr ə / ; Spanish: [xuˈnipeɾo ˈsera] ), known as Fra Juníper Serra in Catalan , his mother tongue, [ 1 ] ( Catalan: [ʒuˈnipər ˈsɛrə] ) (November 24, 1713 – August 28, 1784) was a Spanish Franciscan friar who founded the mission chain in Alta California of the Las Californias Province in New Spain —present day California . Fr. Serra was beatified by Pope John Paul II on September 25, 1988. Serra is best known for establishing the chain of Roman Catholic Franciscan missions in California, stretching from San Diego to San Francisco.
Brain scans of people under the influence of the psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, have given scientists the most detailed picture to date of how psychedelic drugs work. The findings of two studies being published in scientific journals this week identify areas of the brain where activity is suppressed by psilocybin and suggest that it helps people to experience memories more vividly. In the first study, published January 23 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) , 30 healthy volunteers had psilocybin infused into their blood while inside magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners, which measure changes in brain activity. The scans showed that activity decreased in "hub" regions of the brain -- areas that are especially well-connected with other areas.
Scientific notation is the way that scientists easily handle very large numbers or very small numbers. For example, instead of writing 0.0000000056, we write 5.6 x 10 - 9 . So, how does this work? We can think of 5.6 x 10 - 9 as the product of two numbers: 5.6 (the digit term) and 10 - 9 (the exponential term).
My project launched a payload with GPS, camera, sensors and communications to an altitude of 30km. I obtained most parts ready years ago, but only recently had time to finish it. High altitude ballooning is an emerging hobby, since price of GPS and communications equipment has gotten quite low. It is an excellent hobby for people fascinated by space flight and telerobotics and has many learning aspects — from systems design to electronics design to software engineering.

Serious Cyclists Serious bicyclists can learn the best way to shift their gears by making a table based on the number of teeth in the chainrings (by the pedals) and the number of teeth on the cassette (rear wheel). A gear is lower than another if one pedal revolution takes the bike a shorter distance than another. The distance a bike travels for a gear combination is calculated by multiplying the drive wheel diameter by 3.14, multiplying that number by the number of chainring teeth divided by the number of teeth on the rear cogs.
The Embera–Wounaan is a semi-nomadic indigenous people in Panama , living in the province of Darien at the shores of the Chucunaque , Sambu , Tuira Rivers and its water ways. The Embera-Wounaan were formerly and widely known by the name Chocó , and they speak the Embera and Wounaan languages, part of the Chocoan language family. [ edit ] Name The name "Embera" means "people." Collectively they are known as the Chocó and belong to two major groups: the Embirá , of upper Atrato and San Juan Rivers , and the Wuanana of the lower San Juan River.
