Prompt 1: Migration

* According to anthropologists, where did the first human beings live? Why did they leave that place? How did they get to North America?

According to anthropologists the first human beings lived in Ethiopia, Africa around 2 million years ago for example: Lucy known as the oldest human found there. The most probable reason why the first human left Africa is because of the Ice Age. The cold made life so difficult to survive and somehow reduced in their population. They went through a land bridge, which existed to connect North America and Asia during the Ice Age.

* What was the Columbian Exchange? How did the Columbian Exchange affect Europe? How did it affect North America?
The Columbian Exchange is basically understand as the exchange in foods, animals, plants as well as diseases between the New World (North America) and the Old World (Europe) followed after the discovery of America by Columbus. The Columbian Exchange affected both world in many ways.

For Europe, it brings avocado, potato, tomato, corn, beans, tobacco, turkeys as positive effects and the negative effect are diseases like tuberculosis and syphilis.

For North America, positive effects: coffee beans, olive, banana, sugar cane, grape, sheep, pig, horse. And the negative effects impact North America are: smallpox, chickenpox, measles etc…

* Name four groups of people who migrated to British North America in the 17th century. Why did each of those groups migrate? Virginia Settlement – these settlers known as the first English settlement to migrated in North America. They prefer to seek opportunities, own some land in this new world and make their own business. Later on tobacco was introduced and the majority of them planned to grow tobacco as it’s the most successful cash crop to become rich. Puritans of New England – their main reason is to pursue practice religious freedom and escape persecutions from their mother land. They want to create a religious society, a better place for their people to instead of England during this time. Quakers in Pennsylvania – they are Christian immigrants but not like the Puritans in New England as we known. They came to America to create religious refuge for those persecuted for their religious beliefs. Dutch of New Netherland -

* How did the migrant population of early colonial Virginia (1607-1640) differ from the migrant population of early New England (1620-1640)? List three social differences between those early colonies and one similarity.
Virginia have large population including more African slaves being transported there into tobacco fields.
New England was less of those slaves as economic reason is not their main goal when migrate to America but freedom of religions

Colonial Virginia came to North America to make wealth, that’s why the majority of them were men not much of women and children
New England came with families to build a religious society, so they have men, women and children along with them

When both groups arrived in America, a lot of the colonial Virginia people died off for some of the first years while the New England people are much less.

Since they all moved out of England, then they have to be Christian anyway, so this is the similarity between the two.

Prompt 2: Economics

* What chain of events in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia caused Europeans to explore the world’s oceans in the 15th century?
Back then when refrigeration had not invented. Salt is used to preserve meat, spices help to hide the salty taste and spices are only found in Asian countries. So the Europeans have to trade with Asian countries to get spices. The 2 continents are connected by the Ottoman Empire (in the Middle East) lied between them. Of course this empire would tax whatever trade is going through their land. After a while, the Europeans can’t afford to keep the Ottoman Empire happy with the tax, so they decided to explore a sea-route to get to these Asian countries.

* Which commodity sparked the economy of colonial Virginia in the early 17th century? What social problems resulted from the success of that commodity?
Tobacco was introduced and imported by John Rolfe. This triggered huge waves of settlers in Jamestown to plant tobacco’s seeds as well. So the more of them growing tobacco, the better the economy improving due to high demand in consumptions. On the other hand, growing tobacco resulted in the Indians being kicked out of their lands, forced the African slaves brought to America and work in the tobacco fields.

* Which industry sparked the New England economy at the end of the 17th century? Who was unhappy with the success of that industry, and why?
Shipbuilding was a fast growing industry created a boom for New England economy. They also gain profit out of transporting trading goods back and forth from and to England, and also for transporting slaves out of Africa and into North America. The New England settlers were so success at their shipbuilding business that actually made their mother land (England) unhappy. And the reason for this, England probably thinks that the people in New England are somehow over-taking their shipbuilding industry which would definitely affect England’s economy one way or the other.

Prompt 3: Government

* How did the political thinking of Englishmen in British North America diverge from the political thinking of Englishmen in England during the period of salutary neglect? Why did that divergence in thinking take place? How was that divergence in thinking symbolized?
Salutary neglect enabled colonies to have more freedom than any other British colonies. They are allowed to violate the laws associated with trades without making England send troops to America to enforce the situations.
Salutary neglect kept the colonies under obedient to England. And England doesn’t have to waste money as sending troops to America are expensive too.

* What was the political philosophy that came to dominate in British North America by the middle of the 18th century? What character trait was most vital in that philosophy? Why was that trait so important?
Liberalism is the political philosophy based on the ideas of liberty and equality strongly influenced by John Locke. It came around the Age of Enlightenment, it is as vital as how it supports program like freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of markets etc... to basic of ruling the nation.

* What did colonists mean when they said “no taxation without representation”? How did Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” change that mindset?
The Americans meant to complain about the taxes forced by the Parliament without the colonists’ agreement. The colonists do not want to be taxed when they can’t participate in the government.
Thomas Paine’s Common Sense criticized the England for ruling the colonists. They acted like they are protecting the colonies but instead they wanted to gain the benefits out of the economic. For the most part, they forced the colonists to pay for taxes in different ways and not letting them have the right to represent their own land. It’s time for America to grow by itself. By doing this, America must declare of independence from England.

...Today’s Physical Therapist: A Comprehensive Review of a 21st-Century Health Care Profession Prepared by the American Physical Therapy Association January 2011 Foreword The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) created Today’s Physical Therapist: A Comprehensive Review of a 21st-Century Health Care Profession to provide accurate information for government entities and the public about the history, role, educational preparation, laws governing practice, standards of practice, evidence base of the profession, payment for physical therapy services, and workforce issues unique to the physical therapy profession. As government, private health care entities, and provider groups pursue solutions to the considerable health care provision challenges the United States faces, it is imperative that accurate information about the qualifications and roles of specific providers, in this case physical therapists, be available to inform all entities as they engage in these discussions. APTA is the national professional association representing more than 77,000 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students nationwide.

...MOTIVATION, BEHAVIOR, AND PERFORMANCE IN THE WORKPLACE I. INTRODUCTION Motivation is a subject that has long interested researchers and practitioners seeking to understand human behavior and performance. Over the course of the 20th century and into the new millennium, scholars have developed sweeping theories and have amassed large bodies of applied research investigating motivation across a variety of settings. Motivation has been studied in schools, the workplace, government, and athletic competitions, to name but a few contexts. It has been studied at the level of the individual, the group, and the organization. Some motivation researchers have employed cognitive models, which emphasize the role of thought processes in determining motivation and behavior, while other researchers have adopted non-cognitive paradigms, which focus on factors such as personality traits, affective states, and environmental determinants. This paper focuses specifically on research about motivation and behavior in the workplace. It discusses motivation theory, which has broad applicability across contexts, as well as the empirical research conducted in workplace contexts. In reviewing this literature, particular emphasis is placed on research about motivation and behavior as they relate to individual performance. A central aim of motivation research is to explicate the complex relationships that exist among motivation, behavior, and performance—such knowledge is critical for managers tasked with...
