Franklin made a good life not only for himself but for those around him as well through frugality, diligence and temperance, and when he died on April 17, 1790 at the age of 84 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania more than 20,000 attended the funeral to pay their respects to one of the most respected and influential men of their time. Benjamin Franklin has influenced American technology, and indirectly, lifestyles by using his proficiencies and intelligence to conduct numerous experiments, arrive at theories, and produce several inventions. Franklin's scientific and analytical mind enabled him to generate many long lasting achievements which contributed to the development and refinement of modern
Was he a product of his society? In my opinion, he was in some aspects, getting many traits from the people who surrounded him to shape the honorable character he grew to be. He was a product of his society in Boston since it was where he was born and raised. He was a product of Philadelphia because of all the business and political ties he had with the city. And he was a product of London because of the traits he learned that would later attribute
The clean up of the debris took several years but the impact it had on the country and the state of New York will with stand the tests of time. “We won’t forget,” has been the theme of many bumper stickers and remains to the motto that lives in all our hearts. 4. Since September 11, 2001 the United States has taken several steps to improve their airport security and protect against terrorism. At the federal level, the Department of Homeland Security has served as the “wall” between law enforcement, intelligence has been nearly obliterated, some law enforcement organizations are being directed to become more like intelligence agencies, and the foreign intelligence community is being reformed.
In 1726, Benjamin partnered with Hugh Meredith, a fellow worker, and opened a new print shop. Ben’s perseverance paid off and their shop quickly developed into a successful business venture even though there were already two other print shops in town. Franklin was soon recognized as the most skilled and industrious printer in Philadelphia. In 1729, Ben bought a newspaper, the Pennsylvania Gazette, from Keimer, his former employer. Franklin not only printed this paper, but he often contributed pieces to it under different aliases.
During this era he became well known for his doctrine of tactics that was widely liked by the US population. This is an important impact because it replaces lost trust in the government over the many years (Thompson
Katey Goodshaw Due: March 13, 2012 Period 6, U.S. History PWA, Benefits for All The New Deal was a series of policies started by Franklin Delano Roosevelt as an attempt to stabilize America’s economy during the Great Depression. One of FDR’s attempts to get America out of the Great Depression was the formation of alphabet agencies. These agencies were started to give work to citizens who were unemployed and to better the general community. The agencies helped unemployed people make a living during an economically difficult time and helped improve communities for all residents. I believe that the New Deal was an important improvement to our country because it helped many people during a time of struggle.
Also in the years before and after the Revolutionary War were very exciting in a sense that before the war, the States were still succeeding from England and building colonies and communities in this country. As well as afterwards there were still people who supported the King of England and would turn their neighbors over for treason, acting like spies, even after the fighting had ended. Point two: The man Rip Van Winkle, the main character, in this story was loved by all and was a respected man about town, except for with his wife. All the dogs and children loved him and the citizens all new him by name. They were his friends.
This office complex that Rockeffelar single-handedly purchased, then attracted many blue-chip corporations which created many jobs during a time when jobs were very scarce. While in the myth of Prometheus, fire was progressing human society, in New York City, John D. Rockefeller Jr’s office complex progressed the economy during a time of struggle. Then after World War Two the Rockefeller's opened up more companies which created even more jobs to be available which gave people confidence in the future. Both John D. Rockefeller Jr. and Prometheus sacrificed to sanctify peoples lives and to give them hope to a brighter future. The collection of art works presented at The Rockefeller Center have a united value that can be deciphered by analyzing the cultural hidden meanings behind each creation.
Founding Fathers Elizabeth Taylor September 11, 2012 Out of all of the Founding Fathers who made the country of the United States possible, I believe that Benjamin Franklin was the most active participant. Benjamin was a very bright and well liked person throughout Europe, he was able to get people to look at his point of view of things and get them to agree with his decisions. He lived in London, England for a long period of time before and during the American Revolution. Though not happy with the rebellion of the colonists, he tried to solve the issues for them as well. In 1765, when the Stamp Act was placed, he made a testimony before Parliament to help persuade the repeal of the law.
I appointed Frances Perkins as the Department of Labor because she had helped New York reform so well. There was a high rate of pressure not to fail because she was the first woman to hold a cabinet position in the United States, but Frances was very promising. I trusted all of the decisions threw at me. Another cabinet member that had a great influence during my presidency was Henry Morgenthau Jr. He played a major role in designing and financing the New Deal, and in preventing Germany from being a military power after the Allied victory that was influential of WWII.
