Question by meOh: How exactly were Asian people treated throughout the history of America? Even today?
All of our history text-books focused only on the European people and the African people, but never made any reference to Asian people.
I know most Asians came during the Gold Rush, but were they treated badly like how African people were? Were they treated differently after the civil war?
Answer by Bachelorette The Civil War which was between the North and South had no effect on how Asians were treated.Also, there was a higher concentration of Asians living in the West at that time because they helped build the railroads.
Asians were not treated nearly as badly as Africans but thousands of Japanese citizens were unfairly placed in concentration camps after Pearl Harbor. The concentration camps weren’t anything like the death and work camps in Europe that the Jews were in such as Auschwitz or Sobibhor(sp), but they like the Jews were put there against their will.
They weren’t treated well at all when they were put to work on the railroads. The Asians built the railroads from West to East and I believe the Irish built from East to West. I might be wrong about the Irish part though I haven’t been in a history class in a while lol.
Almost forgot about the “Gentlemen’s Agreement” which was an act passed by Congress I believe it had something to do with preventing more Asians from entering the country.
Question by Abra B: What are some hobbies that would be interesting to other people?
My only hobbies are reading (introverted), drinking with friends (not exactly character building) and obsessing about dating (a joke … kind of). What are some other hobbies that I could use to talk about in conversation, especially that guys wouldn’t be bored talking to you about? I am really curious, so learning any new thing is appealing … but it’d be nice to kill two birds with one stone and have a good conversation topic to get others engaged in conversation.
Answer by Mike M. I suggest you think about taking up model railroading as a hobby. More and more Girls are getting into the hobby also, and I suggest you give it some thought.

Question by : 2 people kicking ball to each other on a field, would this help for football skills?
Trying to improve.
Answer by Hannah It could help with your passing yes and you could try doing moving passes where one person runs to the side and then you pass and move, receive the ball and pass again etc. Also you could try scoring, dribbling, practising interception where someone tries to take the ball off you and other skills like that 🙂
Question by Trevor: Whats with people calling all non-digital things analog?
Real photos are now analog photos as opposed to digital photos. Wired magazine is calling a model railroad “an analog sims”.
Answer by Mike “Digital” means that something – a voice, a picture, for example, has been digitised, ie, turned into numbers. Usually quite a lot of numbers. It can then be transmitted and saved with minimal loss of quality. It also allows the use clever arithmetic to make the thing smaller, regenerate it, find patterns in it, and so on.
“Analogue” means that something (a light level, a sound pressure) is represented by something else (a density of silver in a photograph, a voltage leaving a microphone). There are no numbers, just a smooth, continuous variation of one thing as it follows another. But this “following” won’t be exact – there will always be errors, noise, limits to the working range (saturation) and so on.
So nearly all real-world things, when they are to be transmitted or stored, start life as analogue signals. If they never get digitised, one could call them “analogue”. A model can be an analogue of a real-life (“prototype”) railway or aircraft: the “analogue” conversion then is from one length to another, often smaller length. The model can simulate the real thing, to a different scale. So that usage is justified, if a bit unusual.
In summary, if something is “digital”, it simply means that it has been digitised somewhere in the chain. It usualy gets converted back to analogue before being viewed, heard, or felt.
