Living Standards Of

The Industrial Revolution

During this time many thing were increased. Middle class, class mobility (means it is easier to go from poor to rich). Standard living alone went through the roof. Thanks to the Industrial Revolution, working conditions became much better. Before the Industrial Rev,  about 90% of people ran farms and used an ox and/or a horse drawn plow for their crops. During this time many things were improving and people were very happy about it.

What is a Living Document?

 

A living document, I would say, is one that is still valued and applied to everyday life. A living document is one that is continued to be frequently updated or edited. It is often expanded as needed and implemented. A dead document is one that is ignored and may as well not have been made. If nobody respects it for obeys it. (of course not everybody respects the Constitution) It is still sorta kinda a living document for some people. Most of the people I know are.

Why Study Autobiographies?

 

If someone studies autobiographies they obviously want to learn more about them and maybe write their own someday. They would read other people’s autobiographies to see what information they thought was important and see if you have the same similarities to use in your own autobiography. Such as: where you were born, who your parents are, how you were raised, your education, and every bit of information you can get a hold of from your memories and your friends. Studying them really helps you understand how to write them.

Origin of Money

 

People made and started using money in about 650 BC. Payment started out as object and eventually became in gold coins or silver coins. Way back in Bible times money was used frequently. Especially gold coins. There were: gold, silver, and copper coins. Why gold silver or copper though? It was simply because people liked it and they thought it looked good on jewelry. Some people like gold because other people like it. One person likes gold because they know another person would be willing give them something for it. People think of what people would want in exchange for gold. Something people want. Nowadays we have cash.

Note Taking

 

The obvious answer to the question (What I must do in my note-taking to describe what is going on around me?) is of course, you have to take notes to describe something around you that you want to share. Of course you could just draw a picture of the beautiful view of the city that you want to describe AND take notes under the drawing. The drawing could completely describe something way better than a short list of notes. A picture does says a thousand words. Taking notes does help you out a lot in many given situations and can improve your understanding on whatever it is you’re taking notes on.

Three things to include

in my autobiography

 

I would most certainly include in my autobiography that I am a drummer and getting better. I would mention some other things like how I play in a band at my Church, but thats just one of the three main thing I would have to include in my autobiography. This may be the only thing right at this moment that i would include. I still have lots of life ahead of me. There will undoubtedly be more to add in the future. This is one thing I have chosen to be definitely include so far.
