Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day to all my family, friends, fans, and Everyone else who does not have a clue about me!

I hope you enjoy this day with a smile on your face.


Canada Day (French: Fête du Canada) is the national day of Canada. A federal statutory holiday, it celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada.[1][2][3] Originally called Dominion Day (French: Le Jour de la Confédération), the holiday was renamed in 1982, the year the Canada Act was passed. Canada Day celebrations take place throughout the country, as well as in various locations around the world, attended by Canadians living abroad. WIKI

Chapter 1: Lesson 2: The First Humans – The Neolithic Era

The first humans lived in what is called the Paleolithic Era. It is also known as the Stone Age. These people were hunters and they collected things they found. They moved from place to place in order to survive and divided chores between themselves in order to get all their needs met on time.

Most humans followed animals in order to find better places to live. They were like immigrants traveling long distances. The Ice Age migrated humans towards warmer lands. Humans walked and reached every continent except Antartica, taking roughly one million years. Now that is a long time to travel the world.

 

Art was a form of telling stories and was used as a form of communication between the Paleolithic people. They used animal fat to make paint.

That’s it, folks. If you enjoyed today’s chalk talk then come back tomorrow for more

Chapter 1: Lesson 1: The First Humans Prehistory

I  am going to start by talking about Historians. It is important to know this before we even begin to learn about the past. Historians are scholars that study the past by using whatever records they can find. For instance, they use historic art or read letters, study religious documents, and community records.

If we want to study the time where none of these recourses were available then the study of prehistory will rely on Archaeology. These are scientists who study objects made by humans.

It is good to also know that there are Anthropologists that study the cultural aspect of human society. They study the clothes, what they ate, how custom was, and what language they spoke.

Now we can begin with the first humans. What did they look like? Well, the first humans looked nothing like us. Scientists believe that we most likely were descended from early forms of apes. Early human-like creatures look something between apes and us.

The first humans are called the HOMINIDS. There are many types of them but the famous ones are Australopithecus (4 million years ago), Homo Habilis (2 million years ago), Homo Erectus (roughly 1.5 million years ago), Homo Sapiens (roughly 400,000 years ago), Homo Sapiens Sapiens (roughly 200,000 years ago).

That’s it, folks. If you enjoyed today’s chalk talk then come back tomorrow for more.

Chapter 1: Lesson 1: Phrases

Chapter 1: Lesson 1: Phrases

I believe we first must begin with understanding what Grammar actually means.

Grammar is the structure of a language. It is not about what words mean but how they form and fit together. It is about how words are arranged in a sentence and provide rules that explain how they get used.

A phrase is a group of words that act as single part of a speech. It can be a noun, adjective, adverb or even a preposition.

Preposition – A word or group of words that show direction, location, or time, or introduce an object.

 Let’s start with examples:

Maria’s favorite sweater was hanging from the line.

John found the sunset to be heart-stoppingly beautiful.

Before class, I crammed for the test.

Sally took his pet lizard into the house.

ENGLISH & HISTORY CHALK TALK

A NEW CHANGE

I am opening a new chapter here at Review Tales. It has been a while since I have wanted to make some changes and broaden the topics and subjects discussed on this website. As versatile as Review Tales is, I have decided to add some English and History lessons to the content of the page.

I know that I have many followers from across the world. English is not everyone’s first language and so I believe it will benefit them as much as it will benefit us, in refreshing our knowledge.

History is what makes and shapes us today. It is important, in my opinion, to learn from the past in order to create a better world.

The Topics For English Will Be:

Grammar

Language

Reading Fiction

Reading Nonfiction

Writing


The Topics For History Will Be:

The First Humans

First Civilizations

The Middle Ages

Renaissance and Reformation

The Age of Exploration

Revolution and Enlightenment 

The Era of Imperialism

World Conflicts in the Early Twentieth Century

Post World War II: The World from 1945 to Today 


I would love to hear your thoughts and if you are interested in this new chapter, then let me know!

June Short Book Reviews (Part Two)

Lean Stone Book Club kindly requested these short book reviews.

Etiquette: A Guide to the Most Common Etiquette Rules and Social Situations where Etiquette Matters by Niel Schreiber

Etiquette is a wonderful book written about how you should behave and interact in social situations. Whether it is a family event or an official work related gathering, this book attempts to inform you on basic civil behavior that would increase your likeability and social calendar.

The only thing that I could recommend in improving this book would be to include pictures. The additional images would assist the reader in understanding the etiquettes such as, dinner table arrangements and other forms of mannerism that require measuring.

Nothing is more delighting to read about how much our mind and spirits are dependants, to social interactions. When the Internet and social networking now consumes all of our lives, many of our youth and even young adults are denied the knowledge of how to behave when they are at a party or a restaurant. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wishes to learn more on how to act when publicly interacting.

Afternoon Tea: Inspiration and How to Host the Perfect Afternoon Tea Party at Your Home by Tadio Diller

Afternoon Tea is a book written about everything to do with tea. It informs the reader on how to select your tea and recipes to compliment it. The book also manages to cover some historical facts about tea, which I enjoyed. Being British as I am, tea is very important in our culture and to read about how to prepare a perfect afternoon having tea, was very interesting to me.

I felt the book is ideally suited for an audience that appreciates a good cup of tea and nothing could beat the fact that a little knowledge of etiquette, can go a long way as well. I recommend this book to anyone that cares about tea and socializing.

June Short Book Reviews (Part One)

These short book reviews were kindly requested by Lean Stone Book Club.

Fasting by Jonathan Clear

This is a book written about the benefits of practicing Fasting. As we all may know, fasting has been best known for its religious connections, however; this book discusses matter beyond that. It also emphasizes as a way to losing weight, to cleanse and to heal as well.

In the beginning, I was very intrigued to see what the book was going to offer and it did not disappoint. I particularly liked where the author discusses how fasting can even benefit people with mental health. It was very hard for me to find anything bad about the book and so I recommend it to anyone that wishes to know more about fasting, its history, and benefits.


 

Africa: African History: From Ancient Egypt to Modern South Africa by Raymond C Nelson

This history book is a great addition to everything you need to know about Africa. It begins with explaining the three African civilizations, moving on to the Ancient Egyptians and the history of the great cities. The book is filled with references and backdates of many historical facts such as the great Zimbabwe Empire or the Kongo Kingdom followed by the European Colonization.

Africa is a great read on a nice weekend with a generous, warm cup of tea. It takes you back to many years ago and makes you forget about the world you live in now. The literature was very easy to understand, and the pace of the history telling was in a well-formatted way keeping you wanting to know more.

I recommend this book to anyone that likes to read on history and is interested in Africa.
