Teague Parkway Fant Parkway Stoner Ave Youree Dr Olive St Magnet / Valencia Park Henry Miller Shreve was the developer of the shape and style of the Mississippi River Steamboat, according to author and professor Gary Joiner. His design featured - a wide, shallow draft hull - 2 decks - boiler on main deck - improved engine The steamboat brought wealth to the Red River valley through increased trade. Imagine giant stacks of cotton bales on the front and rear decks of a steam boat. Shreve also enabled river traffic by clearing the Red of a log jam called the Great Raft. By one account the obstructions in the channel stretched from Shreveport to Baton Rouge. He developed a steam-powered work craft called a Snag Boat to fully leverage the

clearing of the river of the masses of heavy trees and debris. The Snag Boat featured a split front hull topped with an armature, or frame, that enabled the men to better use a winch and pulley to extract heavy trees from the river sediment. Cave-ins of dirt and trees were the main elements of the log jam. The jam was so thick that islands developed in the main channel. Today Shreveport faces a transportation problem somewhat similar to that of the Great Raft. It is the air access problem due to the oddly high cost of flying in or out of Shreveport Regional Airport. We need a visionary in the mold of Henry Shreve to clear the obstructions in local air traffic. If we can find a way to lower ticket prices to a competitive level, this region will surely develop more wealth and comfort. Hydrologists 1.

There are 3 recommended ways to create an interest-getting opening: a) use a quote b) ask a question c) write with vivid description. 2. Blend the topics continually in the paper. Do not write a block of material about one topic and then write a separate block about the other topic. Integrate the topics as you offer insight and evidence. 3) Use comparison terms: * different from, * the same, * Both, * similar to, * Neither, ... nor, * like X is (adjective), * ... than X is (adverb) than. * both, ... * either...or * likewise * similarly * although, * but neither... * nor * however * on the other hand 4. Specific examples must be used to support generalities. An example: generality - The Incredibles was an awesome movie. specific - The Incredibles appealed to me because the characters (especially the mom and the teen sister) were believable. They sounded like people I know.

5. Grammar counts. 6. Spelling, too. When in doubt, see a dictionary or ask me. 7. Punctuation is paramount. Again, ask me or your Grammar Check software. 8. Include documentation via "according to ...". This means include your source - from World Book to your little brother - in the body of your writing. Usually you place it at the end of the first or second sentence, says Grammar For Today. 9. Write a snappy title. Ways to make a title fun are to tweak a song or movie title or use alliteration. Also, write an explanatory subtitle. Example: "Dinkas are Incredibles;" "Many refugees from the Sudanese Dinka tribe have moved from poverty in east Africa to comfort in the US." 10. Finally, please don't put quotation marks around your title - unless you are quoting someone. Commonly used demographics include gender, race, age, income, disabilities, mobility (in terms of travel time to work or number of vehicles available), educational attainment, home ownership, employment status, and even location.

Use of sleeping pills is common. 25. "Expert at lip reading." Are you pretty good at it? Mildred. Because she's often listening to music and seeing someone talk to her simultaneously. 26. "Do you agree to that, Helen?" "I sure do." Explain. The soap opera script draws Mildrd into the plot and action. 27. "Fourth wall-TV." Surround screens. 28. "You're not like the others." Clarisse to Montag. 29. "The dead beast, the living beast." The Mechanical Hound. 30. olfactory: sense of smell. proboscis: nose or snout. ballistics: science of projectile travel. trajectory: course of a speeding projectile. 31. "It doesn't like or dislike."

"We never ask questions, or at least, most don't." Sound familiar? Current day society. 35. "They name a lot of cars or clothes . . ." Superficial social talk. 36. Art as seen in museums has changed. How so? It is entirely abstract. 37. Vocab: proclivities: things you like to do. 38. "Once upon a time; what kind of talk is that?" The past seemed threatening in this new society. 39. "First fireman: Benjamin Franklin." Big lie. 40. "None of those books agree with each other." People are afraid of discussion, controversy and the work needed to make a compromise. 41. English heretic, 1555: "We shall light a candle as shall never be put out." Knowledge

and truth are indelible. 42. Burnt by chemicals to a brittle straw." Like some people's hair today. 43. Dante, Swift, Marcus Aurelius. Classic writers. 44. "Photography. Then motion pictures." The banning of upsetting media took this path. 45. "Quadruple population." Over-population is a key to understanding this distorted world. 46. "Books cut shorter. Condensations."

To some degree, those are changes we've experienced in recent decades. 48. "Spelling gradually neglected; finally, ignored." The "slippery slope" toward a careless society. 49.

Sports engage people so that they can avoid thinking about morals and mortality. 51. Who are the 'relatives' ('aunts,' 'uncles') who can be heard chatting in the Montag household? They are fictional performers. They are the soap opera characters who seem to be family to their listeners. 52. "Why learn anything save pressing buttons?" (Beatty) Does the advent of the computer and advanced software take us in this direction? Kind of like today: why memorize facts if you Google them at any time? There is, of course, still value in knowledge committed to memory. 53. "Don't step on the toes of the dog lovers, the cat lovers." (Beatty) Each special interest group is sensitive. Should each have their way when it comes to making their point of view into public policy? 54. "The bigger your market, Montag, the less you handle controversy." (Beatty) Controversy: must we always minimize it? Is a certain amount of controversy the mark of the society which can sustain a healthy dialogue? 55. "Magazines became a nice blend of tapioca."

"Custodians of our peace of mind, the focus of our dread of being inferior." (Beatty) Not letting anyone feel inferior becomes an obsession in this society. The book-burning 'firemen' keep everyone equal in their educational background. 64. "You must understand that our society is so vast that we can't have our minorities upset and stirred." (Beatty) Is it too much trouble for a nation to mediate between the various minority points of view? 65. Terminology in social studies: "A slippery slope argument states that a relatively small first step inevitably leads to a chain of related events culminating in some significant impact, much like an object given a small push over the edge of a slope sliding all the way to the bottom."

How does a totalitarian government control thoughts that may lead to unrest and protest? Give the population __ information. (Again, Beatty) Keep the populace busy with "bread and circuses." That was part of the system of control developed during the Roman Empire. 70. "Police alert. Wanted: fugitive in the city. Has committed murder and crimes against the state." Media statement in regards finding Montag. This is similar to today's scene, in which a fugitive in a car might be seen by people watching TV cameras follow the wanted person online.
