Descriptions for each graph • This graph shows Colorado’s population from 1900-2000. I notice in this graph that the population has increased each ten year period from 1900-2000. I can predict that the population is going to keep increasing every ten years. The largest increase in population was from 1990-2000 it was about a one million increase. • This graph shows Colorado’s monthly gas prices. I noticed in this graph that the gas prices are at its lowest in January and at its highest in September. The gas price increases from February to May then starts to decrease to July. Next, the price increase again till September then stays steady for the rest of the year. • This graph shows Colorado’s population by age and gender in the year 2000. I can notice that there are more males than females from o years old to 50 years old. I can also tell that there are more females than males from 51 years old and over. For males from 20-50 years old they are the largest group on this graph. • This graph shows Colorado’s school enrollment from Nursery school and Preschool to College and Graduate school. I can identify that there is the most enrollment in Elementary school (Grades 1-8). I can identify the second largest group is College or Graduate school. The lease amount of enrollments is Kindergarten. • This graph shows Colorado’s education attainment. I can notice right away that the largest attainment group is some college and no degree. I can also notice that High school graduate and Bachelor’s degree are the 2nd and 3rd largest attainment groups. I can understand that the group with the least amount of attainment is less than 9th grade. • This graph shows Colorado’s race of the house holders. There are 6 categories. The categories are: White, Black or African American, American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, and Some other race. The largest race is White with 88% of householders. • This graph shows Colorado’s age of house holders. I can notice that the largest amounts of householders are 35-44 Years old. The 2nd largest amount is 45-54 Years old. I can tell the least amount of house holders with 7% is 15-24 Years old.
Natural Disasters • Top 10 Volcanic Eruptions of All-Time • Mount Tambora Indonesia April 10th, 1815 • Death Toll: 92,000 People. • Mount Tambora (or Tamboro) is an active stratovolcano, also known as a composite volcano, on the island of Sumbawa, Indonesia. Sumbawa is flanked both to the north and south by oceanic crust, and Tambora was formed by the active subduction zone beneath it • Krakatoa Indonesia May 26th-27, 1883 • Death Toll: 36,000 • Krakatoa is a volcanic island made of lava in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra in Indonesia. • Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii and Herculaneum, Italy August 24th, 79 AD • Death Toll: 33,000 • Mount Vesuvius is best known for its eruption in AD 79 that led to the burying and destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. They were never rebuilt, although surviving townspeople and probably looters did undertake extensive salvage work after the destructions. The towns' locations were eventually forgotten until their accidental rediscovery in the 18th century • Mount Pelee, Martinique May 7th or May 8th, 1902 • Death Toll: 29,000 • The volcano is famous for its eruption in 1902 and the destruction that resulted, dubbed the worst volcanic disaster of the 20th century. The eruption killed about 30,000 people. Most deaths were caused by pyroclastic flows and occurred in the city of Saint-Pierre, which was, at that time, the largest city on the island. Pyroclastic flows completely destroyed St. Pierre, a town of 30,000 people, within minutes of the eruption. The eruption left only three survivors in the direct path of the volcano. The event marked the only major volcanic disaster in the history of France and its overseas territories. • Nevado del Ruiz, Columbia November 13th, 1985 • Death Toll: 23,000 • On November 13, 1985, a small eruption produced an enormous lahar that buried and desolated the town of Armero in Tolima Department, causing an estimated 23,000 deaths. This event later became known as the Armero tragedy—the deadliest lahar in recorded history. Similar but less deadly incidents occurred in 1595 and 1845, consisting of a small explosive eruption followed by a large lahar. • Mount Unzen, Japan 1792 • Death Toll: 15,000 • In 1792, the collapse of one of its several lava domes triggered a megatsunami that killed about 15,000 people in Japan’s worst-ever volcanic-related disaster. The volcano was most recently active from 1990 to 1995, and a large eruption in 1991 generated a pyroclastic flow that killed 43 people, including three volcanologists. • Mount Kelut, Indonesia 1586 • Death Toll: 10,000 • Since the 15th century, Mount Kelut has claimed more than 15,000 people. The explosion was in 1586 claiming more than 10,000 inhabitants. • Laki, Iceland June 8th, 1783 • Death Toll: 9,350 • The system erupted over an 8 month period during 1783-1784 from the Laki fissure and the adjoining Grímsvötn volcano, pouring out an estimated 14 km3 (3.4 cu mi) of basalt lava and clouds of poisonous hydrofluoric acid/sulfur-dioxide compounds that killed over 50% of Iceland's livestock population, leading to famine which killed approximately 25% of the population. • Santa Maria, Guatemala 1902 • Death Toll: 6,000 • The first eruption of Santa María in the recorded history occurred in October 1902. Before 1902 the volcano had been dormant for at least 500 years and possibly several thousand years, but its awakening was clearly indicated by a seismic swarm in the region starting in January 1902, which included a major earthquake in April 1902. • Mount Kelut, Indonesia May 19th, 1919 • Death Toll: 5,115 • On May 19, 1919, an eruption at Kelud killed an estimated 5,000 people, mostly through hot mudflows (also known as "lahars").

History of Ice Hockey By Brandon Bonnette
Foundation of the Rules of Ice Hockey • Ice Hockey is known to have evovled around the game of field hockey which was played in Northern Europe for hundreds of years. The modern version of ice-hockey finds its origins in the rules laid down by a Canadian named J G Creighton. His rules were implemented in the first game of ice hockey played in Montreal, Canada in the year 1875. • In fact, the “rink” or the playing area for ice hockey was actually used in the game called “curling” in Scotland during the 18th century. Initially there were as many as thirty players for each side and the goals were two stones frozen on one end of the ice. The rules for the game of ice hockey were drafted at McGill University in Montreal, Canada in the year 1879. Ice hockey found its way to the US in the year 1893. By the early 1900s, the sport had become prevalent in parts of Europe including the UK.
Founder of the name “Hockey” In 1799, William Pierre Le Cocq, in a letter written in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, England, provides the earliest known reference to the word 'hockey‘.
Evolution of the game • A game played on ice with a curved bat and a ball existed before Ice Hockey in the form of IJscolf, or Colf on ice, which was a popular game in the low countries between the Middle Ages. The game was played with a wooden curved bat (called Colf or Kolf) and a ball made of wood or leather between two poles or simply convenient nearby landmarks, with the object of hitting the chosen point with the least number of strokes. • However, most believe that ice hockey evolved from stick-and-ball games, played outdoors, and adapted to the icy conditions of Canada in the 19th century. The games of British soldiers and immigrants to Canada, influenced by stick-and-ball games of First Nations, evolved to become a game played on ice skates, often played with a puck, and played with sticks made by the Mi'kmaq of Nova Scotia.
Present Rules • Hockey is played on an ice rink with 6 people on each side including a Goaltender, 2 Defensemen, and 3 Offense men ( Left wing, Center, Right wing). • You can’t ever check a guy into the boards by hitting their back. • You cannot cross the blue line on the opposing side till the puck is carried over or you will get a whistle for offsides.
Penalties • For most penalties, the offending player is sent to the "penalty box" and his team has to play with one less skater for a short amount of time. Minor penalties last for two minutes, major penalties last for five minutes, and a double minor penalty is two consecutive penalties of two minutes duration. A single Minor penalty may be extended by a further two minutes for drawing blood from the victimized player. The team that has taken the penalty is said to be playing shorthandedwhile the other team is on a power play. Some penalties include: tripping, elbowing, roughing, high-sticking, delay of the game, too many players on the ice, boarding, illegal equipment, charging, holding, interference, hooking, slashing, butt-ending or cross-checking.
Hockey Fights In hockey rules fighting is prohibited but for the players in the fight you get a 5 minute major penalty. At college and junior level it is a 10 minute misconduct. The best hockey fight in history was Ken Tasker vs. Trevor Senn.
Officials There are usually 2-4 officials in a hockey game. They break up fights, they take face offs, they watch the lines, they determine what a goal is, and they determine penalties.
