When did Missouri become a US state?

User Avatar
Missouri was admitted as a slave state on August 10, 1821, after an agreement known as the Missouri Compromise in which Maine was admitted as a free state. In 1818, Missouri applied for statehood, but this was delayed because it was a Southern state that allowed slavery. By 1820, the controversy became a national issue as the issue of slavery was debated. The "Missouri Compromise" allowed Missouri to enter the Union as a slave state and Maine as a free state, thus keeping the balance of slave and free states equal in Congress. Although Missouri was allowed to enter as a slave state, the remaining portion of the Louisiana Purchase area, north of the 36° 30' line, was to be forever free of slavery. When the Civil War broke out, the Missouri legislature voted to secede and join the Confederacy. However by that time, the Union had taken control of the State capital. So Missouri officially remained a Union state.

What year did University of Hawaii football team defeat the Iowa State Hawkeyes?

User Avatar
Answer: The year Iowa defeated Hawaii was Jason Elam's freshman year in 1989! Mahalo, Actually, the University of Hawaii football team defeated the University of Iowa Hawkeyes (not Iowa State) in 1988, not 1989. It was Jason Elam's freshman year. The final score was Hawaii 27, Iowa 24. Since Iowa was ranked as high as ninth nationally, it was a pretty huge upset. Here's a link to the Na Koa football club website, which includes a video showing the last few minutes of the game (a missed field goal attempt by Iowa and ensuing celebration by Hawaii). Hawaii fans can relive the sweet memory while Iowa fans will probably want to pass. In case you were wondering, the Iowa State football team is the Cyclones, not the Hawkeyes. I don't think Hawaii has ever played Iowa State, although I may be wrong there.

How come there is a cardinal as a mascot at Iowa State when they are called the Cyclones?

User Avatar
The Iowa State teams were known as the Cardinals until 1895. That year many tornados hit the area doing a lot of damage. So the story goes, Iowa State travelled to Northwestern for a game and won 36-0. The following day the headline in the Chicago Tribune newspaper read "Struck by a Cyclone: It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town". The name Cyclones stuck. It is difficult to depict a cyclone in a costume, so the school kept the cardinal in honor of the school's history. Also, Iowa State's school colors are gold and cardinal red.

Can a 17-year-old buy their own apartment in their name?

User Avatar
Might depend on where you live and what the age of majority is there. Getting financing (mortgage) to buy the apartment might be difficult at 17 years of age as you wouldn't typically have much, if any, credit rating. Des Perado Answer No. The legal age of majority in most states is 18. In Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Pennsylvania and Mississippi it is 21. Anyone under the aforementioned ages is not legally able to enter into contractual agreements, this would include the leasing, renting, or purchasing of real property. Answer Yes, how about if that 17 year old is being thrown out of their house and has no where to go and stay. The only thing that person has on his/her head is to get enough money to try to get his/her apartment. To try to live foward. To try to get their life happy without there family that denieds them. They can just rent the apartment, they don't have to exactly buy the apartment. How about if it was you that wanted a place of your own? Answer No, a 17-year-old is not of legal age and cannot enter into financial contracts. The personal situation of a minor concerning family problems is a matter for the state's department of social services. Answer I say YES!!!!!! Any age teen should be aloud to get their own place if they have family problems or things of the such. Someone in the family could at least cosign or something just until they are of age to get it under their name. If not, then I'm sure something could be arranged. I am a teen myself and I know how it feels to not have a place to stay and feel secure. Jesus will take care of you but you should still be able to be provided with a place to take care of yourself instead of being forced to stay somewhere that is only going to cause more trouble to approach. Answer As far as I know this was not meant to be a discussion about whether a teenager should be allowed to live on their own but a Q/A about whether they CAN. In most cases, the answer would be NO (this depends on your country and the age of majority. I am assuming, since you asked, that in your country you are considered a minor). However, under certain circumstances, you can become an emancipated minor, which would grant you the privilege to do so. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emancipation_of_minors

Where can you find free construction leads to bid on in Iowa?

User Avatar
Check the state departments and local city web pages. Most of them have bid listings on their web pages. Also check out college websites as well. If you're looking for commercial projects, since you said free construction leads. I would just do some research on the general contractors in Iowa and contact them.
