Bigfoot is seen in every possible location throughout the North American Continent, mountains, swamps, forests, crossing desolate and some not so desolate roadways and on open farmland. While its demeanor varies from docile to curios to almost threatening, its general appearance varies. Bigfoot is a massive animal, its average height is seven and a half feet tall, its weight is said be between 400-500 pounds. It is covered almost completely in fur, and its fur ranges in color from the moist widespread dark red-brown to brown, black, red, gray and even white. It leaves its footprints behind as a calling card, almost taunting the researchers that feverently research this undiscovered animal. While its prints resemble mans,they are characteristically large in comparison, and instead of the weight distribution being concentrated under the heel and ball as in the arched human foot, the weight distribution is more evenly distributed over the flat, yielding Bigfoot foot. Most often the prints have five toes, occasionally however the tracks are apparently three toed. The three toed tracks can be theorized several ways; that there is a unique variety of Bigfoot in existence, while resembling the five toed Bigfoot closely, it retains a few distinguishing characteristics; another theory is that some soil conditions can cause the toes of Bigfoot to \'clump\' together. The proportion of three toed tracks in comparison to the five toed tracks seems to indicate that three toes is the exception to the norm, and that it is the result of some environmental peculiarity. The main physical characteristics attributed to Bigfoot, other than size and foot shape, are that it is bipedal and upright, has wide shoulders and a heavy brow ridge. Its eyes are sometimes said to appear to be red in color, but are mainly reported as yellow. Although no discernible language has ever been placed with Bigfoot creatures, they are very vocal. Witnesses have reported high pitched wails and low, growling roars, either before and/or after visually spotting a Sasquatch. On some occasions the sounds have been heard from two or more locations at the same time, apparently in communication with one another. Another possible form of communication between Bigfoot is the use of rocks or wood to make banging noises. Quite a few reports associate the odd repetitive banging sounds with Bigfoot, and at times witnesses have heard the sounds from two spots in the woods, indicating communication, or warnings of some sort.
Some say the modern Bigfoot legend was born in America in 1958, when, in the Bluff Creek Valley region of California, a bulldozer operator named Jerry Crew discovered a series of sixteen inch long and seven inch wide footprints in the mud. The tracks literally covered the ground , they were everywhere. The tracks went up hills and down trenches, in place where man could not walk. Crew and his team had noticed the tracks like this for weeks, but for the first time, made a plaster cast. The truth is Bigfoot were sighted long before 1958. Almost all Native American cultures contain legends of creatures that closely resemble Bigfoot, and some reports indicate that early explorers saw these creatures also. Most 18th and 19th century sightings by Non-Native Americans refer to the creature as a wild man, or ape-man. They were seen up and down the east coast of the US and Canada, and the deeper into the frontier regions settlers moved, the move sightings occurred. Bigfoot almost never display aggressiveness behavior, and only one known case has contact with a Bigfoot resulted in death. There was a case of a Bigfoot abducting a man while he slept in his sleeping bag; in 1942 Albert Postman was on a prospecting trip at the head of the Tuba inlet, opposite Vancouver

Family violence family violence Family violence is an issue that we as social workers will probably encounter during the course of our careers. While there are many forms of family violence, I view child abuse and neglect as the worst forms.

Mcdonaldization1 mcdonaldization1 In chapter four of The McDonaldization of Society, George Ritzer discusses calculability, the second dimension of McDonaldization. Calculability involves calculating, counting, and quantifying, which makes it very efficient in the process of McDonaldization.
