Weekly Log 4 Colleen Fantin February 11, 2009 Sakhalin, Manchu for black is home to many groups of indigenous people including the Ainu, Evenks, Yakuts, Oroks, and Nivkhs. The Oroks have a very interesting way of communicating with each other as they have no written language. Mamiya Rinzō, Gennady Nevelskoy, Ivan Moskvitin, Jean François de La Pérouse, and Ivan Kruzenshtern are all famous explorers from the island of Sakhalin. Ivan Moskvitin, was the first person to sail the Sea of Okhotsk in the 1640, because of Moskvitins great exploration, two years later the first Russian map including the far east was drawn. Following Moskvitin, Japanese explorer Mamiya Rinzō discovered that Sakhalin was not a peninsula, but an island. Although Mamiya Rinzō was the first explorer to discover that Sakhalin was an island, explorer Gennady Nevelskoy received the credit after his exploration forty years later. Sakhalin remains today divided in half between Russia and Japan.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
