Framing (Tiger Woods)
I thought about using the recent story of how the senate passed a 1.1 trillion dollar spending bill that in part would give all federal employees a raise to find some kind of framing, but I took the easy way out and decided to find an article about the tiger woods scandal these past two weeks. As I looked through the endless amount of articles and stories about this poor mans tribulation It seemed to me that a lot of the male writers seemed to have the same opinion, in ...
The history of Moscow began in 1147, and since then Moscow has always had a leading position in the life of the whole country. It is the political, cultural, scientific centre of Russia. Coming to Moscow for the first time, many tourists start sightseeing with the Red Square. On the Red Square they visit St.Basil's Cathedral, a masterpiece of ancient Russian architecture. It was built in memory of the victory over Kazan in 1552. The monument standing in front of St. Basil's Cathedral tells us of...

The Coming Of Age In Mississippi
I have read a few slave narratives and similar types of biographies, top of the list were Narrative of the Life of Fredrick Douglas and Sojourner Truth, now I can add a favorite, Coming of Age in Mississippi.

- The Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
History must be learned and understood so past events do not happen again. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are these types of events. By the time Truman took office, Japan was nearly defeated. There were people in the Japanese government trying to find a way to end the war. However many believed the Japanese would fight to the bitter end. This is the same thing many Americans would do if people landed on our coast to fight. Our government did not want this war to be drawn out and we ...

- World War I
Most thought that the war was not their problem it was a foreign problem, and they had no reason to enter it. People were fine living their lives and wanted to keep the peace they had. And President Woodrow wanted to maintain an isolationist/neutral policy. That would not last long soon they would enter the war. The war came about when countries wanted to conquer land for themselves. So they used aggressive action on other countries. The United States wanted to stay neutral but the Germans bui...

- Slavery in the South
By 1830 slavery was primarily located in the South, where it existed in many different forms. African Americans were enslaved on small farms, large plantations, in cities and towns, inside homes, out in the fields, and in industry and transportation.
Though slavery had such a wide variety of faces, the underlying concepts were always the same. Slaves were considered property, and they were property because they were black. Their status as property was enforced by violence -- actual or threate...
