America’s Farming

Posted in USA pride at 4:12 pm by Kendal

corn1 The USA has one of the largest land masses for farming. Within the farming regions of the USA there has many crops produced such as corn, soybeans, many other vegetables and many fruits.  There are also specialty products produced such as barley for beer, grain for liquors and many award winning wines.

Also it ranks one the lowest users of pesticide use in the world.  There is also much land used for organic farming and organic farming is gaining ground each and every year.

With a diverse climate in the USA it lends itself to much production of different crops, naturally. Also with its diverse climate it means that there are many summer crops that is produced in some regions that can be produced in winter in other regions.

The USA ranks number 4 in cropland for organic farming and there are others that rank higher per capita; so there is still room for improvement with farming techniques but it improves yearly.

Barack Hussein Obama II

948c8f77ab5eb4a4 Barack Hussein Obama is the 44th president of the United States of America.  President Obama received the title on Jan 20th 2009.

As we have had other presidents in the past, this would not usually be news, except that he is a minority.

I feel this reveals a majority of Americans no longer look at skin tone but character.

America’s Universities, top ranked universities in the world

America’s Universities

I just finished reading an article today about Universities ranking world wide and out of the top 100, the first 25 was universities from the USA. Goes without saying most of the one hundred was American Universities.  

The UT symbol above is from University of Tennessee.  The school that I attended was half an hour away from UT and much smaller. I did take clinical training at the University of Tennessee Hospital.  

So hats off to the education system in the USA and for those who think it is not affordable.  I do agree in some aspect but if you come from a poor family, pell grants will cover the cost for a local school and start you on the right path.  

To see the rankings click here.

I do hold on to the hope that we never lose this ranking and we never lose anyone with the desire to attend.
