  • Comparison: Zachariah And Washington

    required adaptation to the climate as the Parry Sound area is in a significant snow belt and a lot cooler than Pike County, Missouri. Evidently his Nottawasaga experience could be employed. Also there was far less soil and uneven terrain due to the Canadian Shield making farming more challenging. Annabella could at least get some help from her sister Mary just turned 12 with the children. Not to say she was not working extremely hard with 3 young children, cooking, scrubbing floors, ironing etc. For example, to wash the family’s clothes she frequently hauled a load about 1 km to Lake MacDonald on the southern part of the Watts lot so that she could place the wet laundry on a large rock there to dry. Next door, father-in-law, Malcolm McDougall was also starting up a farm on the lot to the south i.e. Lot136B. As Malcolm was a neophyte farmer and despite having 18 year old Murdoch and his youngest John 8 to help, he was not nearly as productive as Zachariah by 1870. Zachariah could, however, provide lots of experience and advice. Many of Malcom 's daughters by this time, had already fledged: Annabella herself, Catherine (back in Nottawasaga), Sarah (just married to John Wilder and living a few lots south) and Effy. Nevertheless, he had improved 5 acres of his 100 acre lot and had a harvest of wheat (6 bushels) and potatoes (50 bushels). He had neither livestock nor vegetable plots. Although, like Zachariah, he did have 2 ploughs and a fanning mill. One thing he did have…

  • Effy Mcdougall Case

    After Effy McDougall died in 1906, her husband Malcolm lived for another 6 years. Annabella 's father had lived 93 years finally succumbing to old age in his Foley home with its beaver meadow nearby, showing the McDougall genes for longevity. Murdoch 's life was much calmer than his Watts namesake. He had two children by his first wife Isabella Liness, Flora in 1878 and Murdoch Wilder in 1885. He still could have his share of trouble however. As he had done 15 years previously Murdoch had to…

  • Christopher Mcdougall Born To Run Analysis

  • Architecture: Postmodernism In Australia

    This approach means that ARM often seems to draw connections that are not apparent: to the nature of a city, particular people, specific building types, historical episodes or events.18 As Ian McDougall explained in his own words, “Architecture appears to want or need to represent something to validate its permanence”.19 The blackened Villa Savoye at Canberra and recreation of Vanna Venturi House in Footscray are chunk-appropriations, a technique antithetical to modernism’s ideas for the forever…

  • Born To Run: A Rhetorical Analysis

    high-end shoes cost over $100, but these pricey shoes are not the only detriment to our runners, but also injuries.

McDougall effectively employs logical evidence and credibility to validate his thesis that running companies diminished running competition in America. …

American corporations are blinded by their greed and ambition of bolstering their own market value. By doing so, they become careless with regards to the authenticity of their running products. McDougall suggests corporate America has influenced athletic achievement in terms of wealth, rather than in terms of wisdom (94). …

  • Vietnamization Of America Analysis

    he will always have this “deep-down fear… that there is no discharge from that war”(McDougall). The war has altered his mind to think of Vietnam and only Vietnam. One can see how a man, twenty-five years after returning home, still has nightmares and fears of what occurred overseas. One has “never experienced such utter blackness, and utter silence” and “darkness” until they have battled in Vietnam (McDougall). Here Lehrer talks about the nights during the war, where he was afraid and alone.…

  • Essentials Of Running Essay

    It is safe to say that the closest living things that resemble a neanderthal would be gorillas and chimpanzees, big, burly, and strong. Humans are frailer, smaller, and weaker than both, and thus inferior to a neanderthal. The latter were amazingly skillful at weapon making and hunting, and were around much longer than the early humans (McDougall, 2009). Much like a jackrabbit to a cougar, Homo sapiens must have had something that neanderthals didn’t, the big question is, “What was…
