Extractions: In Comparison, Lewis and Clark were Tourists He has been called the worlds greatest land geographer. Certainly no man of his time saw the rivers, lands, and peoples of the western reaches of North America with such clarity of vision. His precision maps remained the official maps of western Canada for a hundred years, and his perceptive writings have enabled subsequent generations to envision the first nation peoples of the early fur trade and to know the ways of a world long since vanished. Yet, less than a hundred years ago, his name was hardly known. Even today, there is no known portrait of David Thompson, and we remain unable to imagine a picture of him other than by dwelling on his known similarity to two other historical figures: John Bunyan and John Philpot Curran. No likeness of David Thompson exists. The famous geological explorer, Joseph Burr Tyrrell, while editing Thompson's diaries for the Champlain Society, received correspondence from one of Thompson's six daughters that claimed her father had an "excellent likeness" to John Bunyan. The famous 17th century English writer and preacher. J.J. Bigsby, a British Army surgeon and geologist, who sat next to Thompson at a North West Company banquet in Montreal, in 1820, reported in The Shoe and the Canoe, published in 1850, that the famous explorer "greatly resembled [John Philpot] Curran, the Irish orator." Based on these assertions, this computerized composite suggests a "new" representation of what David Thompson might have looked like while mapping and measuring Canada during the first half of the 19th century.

Clones are usually retained for virus testing at the Quarantine Center at Glenn Dale, Maryland for 6 to 10 years. Many do not survive at the Center due either to propagation failures, cultural problems or, diseases such as fireblight on pears and apples. However, progress in facilitating movement of plants through quarantine is promised now that this facility is being managed jointly by the National Germplasm Resources Laboratory (NGRL) and the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service of the USDA (APHIS) and more funds and staff are being allocated for this important facet of plant introduction.

Extractions: Short and Sweet: Sir Alexander Mackenzie ranks as one of the most remarkable persons of North American wilderness history and, indeed, as one of the greatest travelers of all time. His transcontinental crossing predated (and indeed inspired) the more famous Lewis and Clark American expedition by twelve years. Even Bernard De Voto, the well-known Utah-born historian said of Mackenzie, "In courage, in the faculty of command, in ability to meet the unforeseen with resources of craft and skill, in the will that cannot be overborne, he has had no superior in the history of American exploration." I remember singing around the YMCA Camp Elphinstone and Camp Howdy campfires: This Land is your Land, This Land is My Land, from the Arctic Circle to the Great Lake Waters, from the Atlantic Ocean to Vancouver Island, this Land was made for you and me". In Mackenzie was realized the dream of a Canada stretching from sea to sea. Beneath the lion and the unicorn supporting the coat of arms of Canada are the Latin words: A MARI USQUE AD MARE, taken from a Biblical text, He shall have dominion also from sea to sea and from the river to the ends of the earth. Without Alexander Mackenzie (and his NorWester friends Simon Fraser and David Thompson), Canada would have lost her entire Pacific Coast, being shut off from any access to the sea. In 1764, Alexander Mackenzie was born in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, a windswept, rugged island in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. When Alexander was ten, his mom died. Neighbours, knowing he had memorized long passages from the Bible, predicted that Alexander would become a clergyman. Through the local pastors library, he learned about astronomy and the use of telescopes. At age 13, Alexander tabulated all the animal and plant life in the Hebrides, and he and his pastor tried unsuccessfully to get it published in London.

Extractions: October 19 World Space Congress NGST: The Name Game Much to everybodys surprise, the Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST) was anointed with the name: The James Webb Space Telescope, after the space agencys second administrator. That decision is thought to have come from the top, courtesy of current NASA chief, Sean OKeefe, who holds the highest regard for Webbs administrative skills. The space agency points out that, while the late James Webb is best known for his managerial skills in shaping the Apollo Moon program, he also spurred into being a vigorous space science program. He was responsible for more than 75 launches during his tenure, including Americas first interplanetary explorers. Here at the World Space Congress, however, specifically among astronomers, the NASA-picked name falls flat. Christening the super-observatory the James Webb Space Telescope has irked the space science community. They would have preferred the scope be named after an astronomer, taking after the Hubble Space Telescope example. Edwin P. Hubble was a staff astronomer at Carnegie Institutions Mount Wilson Observatory. The general picture of the universe established in his work remains at the heart of present-day cosmology.

Extractions: A Brief Biography William Irwin Thompson was born in 1938 in Chicago Illinois, the son of Irish-American parents, a Roman Catholic mother, Lillian Fahey Thompson, a native of Chicago, and a Presbyterian father, Chester Andrew Thompson, born on a farm in Indiana. The family moved to Southern California at the end of World War II. After graduating from Los Angeles High School in 1957, he went on to earn the B.A. at Pomona College in 1962. His formal education continued at Cornell University, where he held a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship (M.A. ; Ph.D. ). He became a member of the faculty in Humanities at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1965 and remained until 1968, when he left MIT to teach at York University in Toronto (1968-1973). Although he has held various other visiting appointmentsat Syracuse University, the University of Hawaii, University of Toronto, Western Behavioral Sciences Institute, and the California Institute of Integral StudiesThompson has since remained outside of academe. In Passage About Earth (31), Thompson writes about individuals from the 60samong them Ralph Nader, Buckminster Fuller, Alan Watts, Timothy Leary, John Lillywho "left institutions behind to become institutions in their own right." In over thirty years of sustained intellectual brilliance, Thompson himself has become such an institution.

Their motivations vary from the desire for wealth and fame to a quest for knowledge. Some expeditions are more successful and others more dangerous, but all are interesting! By completing this unit, the student will have met the following expectations of the Ontario Curriculum Grades 1 - 6 - Social Studies : Grade 6 Aboriginal Peoples and European Explorers. -identify early explorers (e.g., Viking, French, English) who established settlements in Canada and explain the reasons for their exploration (e.g., fishing; fur trade, resulting in the establishment of the Hudson's Bay Company); -identify technological developments and cultural factors that led to the exploration of North America; -identify some of the consequences of Aboriginal and European interactions (e.g., economic impact of the fur trade on Aboriginal peoples; transmission of European diseases to Aboriginal peoples). -construct and read a variety of graphs, charts, diagrams, maps, and models for specific purposes (e.g., to trace the routes of the explorers);

Stone markings in Hampton might be ancient Viking runes carved before Columbus stumbled upon the New World. Soon after Columbus, traffic along our shores increased steadily. Years before the Mayflower arrived in nearby Massachusetts, there were as many as 200 ships making the transatlantic trek each year. They came from Spain, France, Portugal, Denmark and from England. They were, for the most part, fishermen drawn to the incredibly fertile waters here, or trappers and loggers in search of America's vast untapped resources. But they made no permanent settlements, or if they did, left little evidence of their passage. Like Native Americans, early Seacoast visitors had a gentler touch, taking only what met their needs or filled their ships, then moving on. These visitors came to the Piscataqua River region, not for religious freedom, but for adventure and for wealth. Only the promise of significant profit could spark such expensive transatlantic journeys. These "outer space" missions from Scandinavia and Europe required all the planning of a modern day NASA flight. Crewman took great risks. Investors expected results.

Extractions: Jimi Hendrix and up to today's young giants, unify through time in admiration of his accomplishments. And so it is hardly surprising that Richard Thompson, nonpareil guitarist and perceptive observer of life's persistent ironies, has produced another masterpiece The Old Kit Bag, scheduled for release on February 3rd 2003 by Cooking Vinyl. What's perhaps most remarkable about this album by one reckoning, his twenty-fifth, without even counting the six he recorded as a member of Fairport Convention is its distillation of all that precedes it in his catalog. For more than thirty years Thompson has grown as an artist by carefully paring his work down to its essence. As a culmination of this process, Kit Bag, recorded in spare trio format with minimal overdubs, is a textbook lesson on how to convey layers of meaning with minimal gestures. More than that, and more to the point, it's an offering to listeners who appreciate music that's rich on substance and stripped of glitz. Kit Bag opens like a pocketbook filled with gems: images of innocence lost among tombstones on "Gethsemane," of distant love remembered on "A Love You Can't Survive," and demons unleashed by ignorance on "Outside of the Inside," and lyrics "war whoops and secrets under the trees, estuary smells coming up on the breeze, perfect, endless days like these" that glitter and spill like diamonds over velvet.
