Since the very beginning of time ? even before the days of recorded history ? people have been hunting for food. Otherwise they would starve. Then came the era of modern agricultural practices Arden Key Limited Jersey , when people began to cultivate crops and raise animals for food, rather than going out foraging and hunting into the wilderness for their sustenance. The earliest record of this kind of intentional cultivation and nurturing of food sources was in the ancient Mesopotamian regions of the world ? where we now have present day Egypt and the legendary Nile River. Eventually those modern skills and methods evolved, and now hardly anyone living in an industrialized nation hunts for survival. Back in the 1940s, for example, nearly half of all families living in the USA grew at least some of their own food. These days the number of people who grow food ? or raise animals for food ? represents only a tiny fraction of the population.

Most of our food comes from large businesses that handle all the farming. But there are still people who hunt for food. Some do it to survive, some do it to help manage their grocery expenses, and others do it purely for the adventure, sport, and pleasure of hunting and then eating what is killed in the field. These days ? with the economy in such dire straits and people struggling harder than they have in decades to make ends meet ? the popularity of hunting for food is seeing a huge resurgence. Even people who never thought about hunting their own food are learning how to hunt and are enjoying the process as well as the edible results of a successful hunt.

Most states offer free classes ? through agencies such as the State Wildlife Federation ? that teach people everything they need to know to become an expert hunter. They can explain how to hunt with different weapons or traps, what kind of hunting to expect in a particular region of the country, and what rules and regulations must be followed to ensure compliance with local, state, and federal hunting laws. There are also many private professional hunters who offer similar lessons, and there are tens of thousands of civic associations and clubs dedicated to the sport of hunting. Wherever hunting happens, there is also plenty of activity around turning what is hunted ? whether it be wild boars, alligators, birds, deer, or snakes or some other kind of prey ? into palatable food. People who hunt for food can learn to ?field dress? an animal immediately after it is killed, for example, so that the meat doesn?t spoil before they can transport it to a place where it is thoroughly butchered. After butchering, the meat can be cooked and eaten or prepared for storage ? by salting or refrigeration, for instance ? until a later date when it will be consumed.

But as the saying goes ?don?t count your chickens before they hatch.? The first step in hunting for food is to learn to hunt. Like any art or craft, hunting takes some practice. The more one hunts, the more one learns and the more interesting the culture of hunting becomes. Tracking animals in their natural habitat is an exciting way to learn about our relationship with nature, and that is one of the most often cited reasons that people take up the sport of hunting. Of course another big reason is because one day of hunting for food can yield enough food to feed a family for an entire season ? without one single trip to the grocery store or a restaurant.

WASHINGTON, July 24 (Xinhua) -- "When I first looked from a distance, I thought it was a black man in uniform fighting for China," joked Tafari Excell, an American viewer at a photo show about China's role in World War II (WWII) held in Washington.

Then he approached and observed the picture, recognizing that it was a Chinese pilot with a dark face and really shiny white teeth.

"I knew almost nothing about this part of WWII history, and the exhibit gives me a chance to see a bigger picture," said Excell, a New Yorker on a business trip in the capital.

On Monday, a photo exhibit featuring China's contribution to the world's victory in the Anti-Fascist War and U.S.-China alliance in the wartime kicked off at Russell Senate Office Building of the U.S. Capitol Complex, displaying about 50 photos of the time.

The five-day event is to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the "July 7 Incident", or known as the Marco Polo Bridge Incident.

On July 7, 1937, Japanese troops attacked Marco Polo Bridge on the southwest outskirts of Beijing, mounting a full-scale invasion.

Throughout WWII, China was a major battlefield in the fight against the Japanese fascist invasion and the major Asian battlefield in the war against fascists worldwide.

When Americans discuss WWII, the emphasis is often on the European Theater or the conflict directly between the United States and Japan, while little attention has been given to the role China played in the war or the deep alliance between China and the United States, said the organizer of the event, the U.S.-China Policy Foundation.

"We hope this exhibit will give some much deserved attention to an often overlooked aspect of the war," the organizer noted in a statement.

One of the highlights of the exhibit was the photos demonstrating the Chinese army fighting shoulder to shoulder with their U.S. friends, close to 300 young Americans forming the American Volunteer Group (AVG), or better known as the "Flying Tigers."

"I had no idea that China and the United States were close friends in the fight against Japan," Kay Serna, a visitor from the U.S. state of Oklahoma, told Xinhua.

"I'm really touched by their cooperation in the wartime," Serna added.

Organized and commanded by Claire Chennault, the leader of the "Flying Tiger," the AVG was a band of volunteer pilots and ground staff whose sole purpose was to help China fight against invading Japanese troops before the United States . Cheap Jerseys From China   Cheap Jerseys From China   Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale   Cheap Jerseys Wholesale   Cheap Soccer Jerseys   Cheap Authentic MLB Jerseys   Wholesale Jerseys From China   Cheap Basketball Jerseys   Wholesale Hockey Jerseys   Wholesale NFL Jerseys China
