Explain and describe two ways in which humans negatively impact the Earth's environment.
Although frequently overlooked, ocean noise pollution and deforestation are two paramount ways in which humans negatively impact the Earth's environment, specifically the animals that inhabit the environment. Noise pollution, according to The Center for Biological Diversity, is an invisible and often deadly threat to ocean wildlife. The vast majority of ocean noise pollution is sourced from military sonar, oil extraction, and industrial shipping, says The Center for Biological Diversity. These threats send noises booming throughout the ocean and cause devastation to ocean life. Deforestation can be deadly to producers and animals alike. Deforestation involves the clearing of a large area of trees. The cutting down of these trees causes many animals to lose their habitats , shelter, and nesting sites. Similarly, the loss of these trees causes there to be less photosynthesizing organisms present, which disrupts the carbon cycle and the primary consumers that rely on these organisms. All in all, both noise pollution and deforestation have a tremendous negative impact on our environment.

Describe the structure of the Supreme Court of the United States and explain one notable Supreme Court case.
The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest tribunal within the United States and is tasked with interpreting the Constitution. The Supreme Court is comprised of a Chief Justice of the United States and currently eight Associate Justices, who are all nominated by the President and appointed jointly by the Senate. One landmark Supreme Court case is Brown v. Board of Education, in which the Court ruled racial segregation in public schools to be unconstitutional. Oliver Brown, father of Linda Brown, filed a class-action lawsuit against Topeka, Kansas's Board of Education after his daughter, Linda, was not admitted to attend an all-white elementary school in Topeka. Thurgood Marshall represented Oliver Brown, along with other plaintiffs that brought forth cases relating to school segregation. The Justices ruled in favor of the plaintiffs on May 17 1954, deciding that "separate but equal" in public schools is "inherently unequal".

Explain the causes & consequences of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire.
The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in 1911 was caused by many preventable factors, including neglected safety protocols and hazardous working conditions. The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory workers consisted of young immigrant women who worked 12+ hours per day in an overcrowded room. When the fire erupted, the women had only one narrow fire exit, which proved impossible to escape from safely in a timely manner. This fire, although tragic, brought to light the need for heightened safety procedures and reasonable work hours within factories. New laws and regulations pertaining to worker rights and safety were created as a result of the fire.
