Recreational Uses Of Coastal Areas

Human clustering in coastal areas The coastal zone has gained a solid reputation as a place vocated for recreational activities and this is generally related to the presence of the sea. The relationship, however, does not appear univocal or simple: the sea can be perceived as a hostile element by humans and the more general question of whether the presence of the shore is in itself a favourable, repulsive, or irrelevant factor to settlement is a debatable point, at least for pre-industrial societies. Back in the early part of the 19th century, Friedrich Hegel regarded oceans and rivers as unifying elements rather than dividing ones, thus implying a trend towards the concentration of human settlements along them. 'The sea', he wrote, 'stimulates 1 courage and conquest, as well as profit and plunder', although he realized that this did not equally apply to all maritime peoples. In Hegel's view, different approaches to the sea were mainly the results of cultural factors and, in fact, he recognized that some people living in coastal areas perceive the sea as a dangerous and alien place and the shore as aftnis terrae.

From Coastal Wilderness to Fruited Plain is an account of the making of a large part of the American landscape following European settlement. Drawing upon land survey records and early travellers' accounts, Dr Whitney reconstructs the 'virgin' forests and grasslands of the north-eastern and central United States during the pre-settlement period. He then documents successively the clearance and fragmentation of the region's woodlands, the harvest of the forest and its game, the ploughing of the prairies, and the draining of wetlands. The degree to which these activities altered the soil, climate, plant and animal communities, and water cycle are evaluated, and the sustainability of present-day ecosystems is brought into question in this account.

Easter Is A True Christian Love Story

RRP $18.99

When most people think about a true love story, they naturally envision a couple jumping into a bed and making mad passionate love to each other. If the scene is from a movie or from a television show, then they would probably see the two going into a bedroom together and then waking up the next day lying next to each other. However, while that in many cases might be an example of true love, it pales in comparison to the true love that God the Father had showed to human beings when He had offered His only begotten Son on the cross of Calvary. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." For one thing, the love that people see in the movies or on the television only presents a temporary kind of love that must cease when one of the two partners passes away. In fact, in many cases, that kind of love actually ceases long before the passing of one of the two partners.But the love that God has expressed for ALL human beings is eternal. When Jesus had died on the cross to pay the sin debt for all people that will come to Him by faith in the right spirit and with the right attitude, then He had paved the way for them to be reconciled to Him and to have everlasting life in heaven with Him. So while that might not seem like such a big deal to many people, it will someday be a very big deal once those people have ended their time in this existence. Therefore, the purpose of this book will be to talk about the perfect love that God has showed for each person. In doing that, it will talk about the last week of the incarnated life of Jesus. That week had begun with His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on what has traditionally been recognized as Palm Sunday in many places of the world.It will then talk about the fig tree that He had cursed. On the next day, He had gone into Jerusalem to teach some parables and some discourses in the temple. He had first spoken three slanderous truths against the ungodly spiritual leaders of Israel. After that, He had spoken about paying tribute money or taxes to the Roman authorities. He had spoken about the resurrection. He had spoken about the two greatest commandments by which all people should live. He had pointed out the extreme sacrificial offering of a poor widow and the extreme hypocrisy of the Pharisees. He had spoken about some of the events of the end of the Age. He had spoken about the preparedness of ten virgins. He had told a parable about the servant with ten talents. He had then concluded His discourses for the day by sharing with them a parable about the sheep and the goats. So, each of those twelve oratory remarks will be discussed chapters two through five of this text.After those discussions, chapter six will examine the last hours before He had been taken into custody. Some of the events considered will be His last supper with His disciples, His high priestly prayer for those people that follow Him, His betrayal by Judas, and the six trials through which He had been rushed as the Jewish leaders had sought a quick execution. Chapter seven will discuss His having been scourged and His crucifixion. Chapter eight will discuss His seven statements from the cross. Then, chapter nine will conclude this text with a final look at God's perfect love. The hope in writing this book is that all people will be drawn into a closer relationship with the Lord that had died for them on the cross. He is definitely worthy of all praise.
