    In Lewis Cass was the first to introduce the idea of popular sovereignty, or the belief that the people chose the laws of the society. When the United States acquired new territories, such as Kansas, Nebraska, and California, the idea of popular sovereignty always came up when it came to the question of slavery. Stephen Douglas was a strong supporter of popular sovereignty, and he stated in 1854 “Why… can we not… leave the people, under the Constitution, to do as they may see proper in respect to their own internal affairs… and leave the people thereof to the free enjoyment of all their rights.” (Doc. D). Jefferson Davis used the term “squatter sovereignty” in his book A Short History of the Confederate States of America, to refer to the influx of new citizens in new territories to manipulate the votes.…

    If I were an environmental engineer, I would recommend placing a drinking water well in gravel or sand because they are more permeable and they allow water to flow through more freely. Sand and gravel, are usually highly permeable. Sand and gravel have large spaces, or pores between particles where the water is stored. The large pores in sand and gravel are capable or yielding large quantities of water (Lutgens &Tarbuck, 2014). Sand, gravel, and other geological materials capable of transmitting and storing significant quantities of water are aquifers. Aquifers are commonly found in bedrocks sandstone or limestone and in overlying deposits like sand and gravel. Out of all the soil samples that were tested in this lab, gravel is the most permeable aquifer. Gravel allows water to move through it more freely letting contaminated groundwater travel longer distances without getting cleansed (Lutgens &Tarbuck, 2014).…

    Soil is found on the Earth's crust and formed through weathering and decay of organisms. It may be considered dirt to a lot of people but it is highly an important tool for our survival. The soil holds the roots of the plants where nutrients are stored. It is important since it enables the soil to store and regulate the flow of water, filters the pollutants and improves the soil's quality for sufficient plant growth. The soil is composed of four elements namely, the mineral particles, organic matter, water and air (See Figure 1). Humus, an organic matter, composes the upper layers of the soil and gives it a dark color. It provides the plants with nutrition since it is the primary sources of carbon and nitrogen in the soil composition and it also increases the water and mineral holding capacity of the soil.…
