focus on Iroquois and Hooray (Huron) peoples. They lived in the northeastern great lakes region of
North America. Now, back then, their lives depended on the natural resources of the
forests, especially the birch tree. The birch tree can grow in many different types of soils
and it's prevalent in that area. Now can anyone here describe the birch tree?
Stu: They are tall and white, the bark, I mean.
Pro: Yes. The birch tree has white bark, and this tough protective outer layer of the tree,
this white bark, is waterproof. And this waterproof quality of the bark, it made it useful for
** things like cooking containers, a variety of utensils. And if you peel birch bark in
the winter, we call it ‗the winter bark', another layer a tougher inner layer of the tree
adheres to the bark, producing a stronger material. So the winter bark was used for larger
utensils and containers.
Stu: I know people make utensils out of wood, but utensils out of tree bark?
Pro: Well, birch bark is pliable and very easy to bend. The Native Americans would cut
the bark and fold it into any shape they needed, then secure with cords until it dried. They
could fold the bark into many shapes.

It’s possible that the people in these pictures actually wanted things like “Chicken noodle soup” tattooed on their body (chicken noodle soup is delicious), but we’re guessing they probably didn’t.
Note that these tattoos are in Chinese but, as the Japanese writing system originates from China, many of the characters are the same.
A tower block, high-rise, residential towers, , office tower, apartment block, or block of flats, is a tall building or structure used as a residential and/or office building. In some areas they may be referred to as "MDU" standing for "Multi Dwelling Unit".[2
Psychiatric hospitals, also known as mental hospitals or psychiatric wards/"psych" wards (when they are a sub-unit of a regular hospital), are hospitals or wards specializing in the treatment of serious mental disorders, such as clinical depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. Psychiatric hospitals vary widely in their size and grading. Some hospitals may specialize only in short-term or outpatient therapy for low-risk patients. Others may specialize in the temporary or permanent care of residents who, as a result of a psychological disorder, require routine assistance, treatment, or a specialized and controlled environment. Patients are often admitted on a voluntary basis, but people who psychiatrists believe may pose a significant danger to themselves or others, may be subject to involuntary commitment.
A condominium, or condo, is the form of housing tenure and other real property where a specified part of a piece of real estate (usually of an apartment house) is individually owned, while use of and access to common facilities in the piece such as hallways, heating system, elevators, and exterior areas are executed under legal rights associated with the individual ownership and controlled by the association of owners that jointly represent ownership of the whole piece.
"Condominium" is a legal term used in the United States and in most provinces of Canada. In Australia, New Zealand, and the Canadian province of British Columbia, it is referred to as "strata title". In Quebec, the term "divided co-property" (French: propriété indivis) is used, although the colloquial name remains "condominium". In France, the equivalent is called copropriété (co-ownership), usually managed by the syndic. In Hispanic regions, the traditional term propiedad horizontal is retained since horizon in this case signifies "defined". In South Africa, this form of ownership is called "sectional title".
A dormitory (often shortened to dorm) in the United States is a residence hall consisting of sleeping quarters or entire buildings primarily providing sleeping and residential quarters for large numbers of people, often boarding school, college or university students. In the UK, the word has an earlier, different but related meaning: it refers specifically to an individual room in which many people sleep, typically at a boarding school. The UK equivalent of the American word as applied to university buildings is hall of residence, often shortened to halls. At some institutes, each residence hall has its own hall council. Where they exist, such individual councils are usually part of a larger organization called, variously, Residence Hall Association, Resident Students Association, or Junior Common Room Committee which typically provides funds and oversees the individual building council. These student led organizations are often connected at a national level by the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH). Collectively, these hall councils plan social and educational events, and voice student needs to their respective administration.
