Restrepo The documentary Restrepo portrayed war life in the most vivid way. Blood and Gory didn’t need to be shown for viewers to understand the hardships that come with being a soldier. Restrepo, showed the real emotion behind war, and situations that make average life seem like a piece of cake. Soldiers step out knowing the risks and the consequences, but step out with pride to fight for their country. With firefights, life and death situations, and the mourning of their fellow soldiers, Restrepo showed that when it comes to war, even when we win, everyone still loses.
The severity of Ponzi scheme reflects the severity of the punishment. I noticed in the article made mention of some of the dollar amounts of his families assets. I feel that the forced liquidation of these assets is a strong step in allowing these victims to recover some of their losses. I think it is quite comical that Ruth Madoff claimed that $80 million dollars of the forfeiture was her assets. What was her profession?

7.) 8.) Two logos Lou Gehrig used to support his thesis was to have known the builder of baseball's greatest empire and to have New York Giants send him a gift. 9.) The assumption Lou Gehrig had about bad breaks us that even with it, he still has an awful lot to live for.
The White family was warn by Sergeant Major Morris, but they ignored him and wish for 200 pounds. Herbert White son says “why we’re going to be rich, and famous and happy, Wish to be an emperor, Father to begin with; then you can’t be bossed around” (49). However, even before Sergeant Major Morris gave it to the White family, he said “I threw it on the fire if you keep it, don’t blame me for what happens” (48). He also tells them “The first man had three wishes, yes” was the reply; “I don’t know what the first two were, but the third was for death” (48). Even with life threating situation, the Whites greed and want for money is more important that their own
He, however, hired Tesla due to his intellect and offered him $50,000 if he succeeded in improving his DC generation plants. Tesla, after several months, announced he had completed the task and Edison claimed the $50,000 was a joke and “after he became a full-fledged American he would understand.” Tesla immediately quit. He eventually received an investment from Mr. A.K. Brown of the Western Union Company to invest in the AC motor. Clearly, the $50,000 is enough to create a conflict between the two.
The advertisement begins by stating, “Gingrich was fined $300,000 by a Republican congress for ethics violations” (Restore Our Future), and includes that Rick Perry found a loophole in his contract to add a $90,000 pension to his already $150,000 salary. The ad uses these as reasons to support its claim about Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry having too many issues with ethics and not trying to break those ethics. Furthermore, the ad supports its other half of the claim, that they are also far too liberal on immigration, by stating that Gingrich supports amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants and that Perry has given illegal immigrants in-state tuition to college. The reasons that the ad uses start to provoke questions in the audience, but leave an open space about whether or not any of the claim is true or not. The only reason anyone should believe any of the reasons or the claim itself is because of the warrants that are used in the
The picture of George Washington printed on the dollar is based on a 1796 portrait that was painted by Gilbert Stewart and seems to be the most iconic image of the president. Though because of this famous portrait, most Americans think that Washington was a stoic and grumpy man. It has been said Washington's personality was not at all potrayed in the portrait so, historians at Mount Vernon's Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center began undertaking a huge project to educate visitors about the "real" George Washington. The Many Faces of George Washington follows the work of forensic anthropologists and artists hired by Mount Vernon in 2005 to create three life-size models of
This is partially due to writers and artists that were employed. (Coppersmith 167) Well known political cartoonist Thomas Nast who is credited as the creator of the Republican Elephant and the Democratic Donkey was one of the core artists at the time, as was Theodore R. Davis, Henry Mosler, and the brothers Alfred and William Waud. The New York Herald which operated from 1835-1924 sold over 81,000 copies throughout the whole war.
