The Arabic language is rich and pliant, and poetry, literature, and drama have left their mark on both East and West.

By the early 1600s, co al was England�s primary fuel, and �coal towns� formed where workforces for new mines lived.� Mining towns were ramshackle affairs, populated by migrant workers, and the English class system became pronounced due to the gulf between coal miners and the rest of English society.� That ghetto-like existence was new in the British Isles.� In Scotland, coal miners were actually slaves, even wearing collars that identified their owners. [766] � Coal mining was hellish work, particularly in underground mines, which were dominant on the isle of Great Britain.� Miners were killed by mine gas (methane) explosions, asphyxiated by mine gas (carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, which is why they used canaries in coal mines ), died in cave-ins, and suffered myriad other horrific fates.� Drowning not only became a common way to die as mines began digging below the water table, but solving the water problem became a key event in the Industrial Revolution, and arguably the key event, which will be explored in the next chapter.� Coal miners eventually organized to get better working conditions, and coal miners were prominent in the USA�s labor movement. [767] From civi lization�s earliest days, the sailing ship was humanity�s greatest energy technology.� Today, the term � prime mover � refers to an engine�s component that transforms one kind of energy into another, usually by converting heat energy into mechanical energy (but it is the energy of motion in both instances).� But also when environmental energy is captured and turned into mechanical energy, it is accomplished via a prime mover.� In that regard, a water wheel and crankshaft is a watermill�s prime mover, and a windmill�s sail and crankshaft is its prime mover.� The prime mover is the machinery�s most important component and its heart, where the most advanced technology and materials are brought to bear, as that part endures the greatest stresses.� In an automobile, for instance, the prime mover is the combination of combustion cylinders and their attached crankshaft.� Chemical energy in gasoline is thereby transformed into mechanical energy via the controlled explosions of rapid fuel combustion, which liberated that solar energy captured so long ago .� In a sailing ship, the prime mover is the sail and mast, where wind energy is transferred to the ship.� The mast is a sailing ship�s most important component, and is like an engine�s crankshaft The Assyrian Empire (World History Series).

The Olmecs are believed to be one of the first tribes to engage in Shamanistic rituals. In the Olmec civilization the reoccurring motif of the ŒWere-jaguar¹ can be seen in many statuettes and carvings.

Classical Persian poetry often mentions knights and kings from Iran’s history alongside those from Arabic heroic tales.

Cattle were still herded, more millet was grown, but there were no more lakes for fishing The Young Miner, Or, Tom Nelson in California. As the home camp families and crop farmers became more sedentary and dependent on the herders for milk, meat, and supplies of draft animals, the herders became dependent on reliable supplies of water and feed, and everyone depended on the toolmakers and artisans.
