It is said that he formalized corruption and many of the men who became prominent leaders in crime, received their start from him. Remus moved to Cincinnati, which is right across the river from Newport. During this time, selling liquor was prohibited in Kentucky; Remus saw this as an opportunity to make money by bootlegging the illegal liquor. Remus was a pharmacist and this allowed him to purchase liquor from the Treasury Department for use in producing medicines, but this liquor was diverted to illegal sales. George Remus soon became known as the “King of Bootleggers.” His bootlegging enterprise was growing fast; he was delivering liquor by the truck loads to Ohio, throughout Kentucky, and all the way to Indiana.
Voyage of Wood Duck. 1995, 978-0920336700. Long ago when dreams were more real than they are today; there was a young boy who lived by the sea. He was called Wood Duck. He wanted to voyage across the sea, but when he did so, he longed for home, and also had premonitions about the people he met to the east of his Atlantic seacoast home.
Even the press played him up as a brilliant, daring, likeable individual, basically an equivalent to a “superhero” by taking down banks which had been merciless by forcing debtors to mortgage all that they had. Also these debtors were the ones that were encouraging Dillinger and his gang to keep on keeping on with the robberies. Dillinger became a challenge for law enforcement officials, for he often made them look like fools. One of the main reasons Dillinger was so hard to capture was because of the conflicts between police jurisdictions. But even when Dillinger was captured, he always seemed to find a way to escape.
The Age of Exploration overlapped the Renaissance, a time when people traded in the silly superstitions of medieval times for the excitement of experiencing and observing. With this, people began wanting answers about the world beyond the Green Seas of Darkness. One Renaissance man willing to risk his life - well, not really his own life, mind you, but the lives of the guys he sent out - was Prince Henry of Portugal. Henry, known to our world as Henry the Navigator, began the first school of oceanic navigation and also sponsored countless expeditions into the dark seas. Although Henry never actually joined any expeditions, he helped create maps used by later explorers while also whetting the appetite of all Europe with the spirit of
2010 were thousands of people that were executed, many of them in courts that don’t meet the international standards, and often without a proper attorney. One of the most shameful things with death penalty is when someone is executed but the person in question is innocent. It has happened many times, for example Timothy Evans.

It’s not every day that robbers and murderers are questioned for being heroes or villains, but for Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrows it was a different story. During the Great Depression they stole, killed and caused unspeakable amounts of mischief. Everyone who even glanced at a newspaper would have known who they were. Although Clyde Barrows life of crime actually began as a petty thief in 1926, it really began to take off with Parker and the 1930s bank robbers, which included people such as, John Dillinger and Charles Arthur Floyd, also known as “pretty boy”. Some people believe that Bonnie and Clyde and the 1930s bank robbers were villains, others say heroes of the Great Depression..
The two boys differed in just about everything except in the love of fly fishing; this seems to be where the boys came to understanding with one another. Now even though Norman was the oldest, he admired his younger brother Paul and his wild streak which said to make him ‘tougher than any man alive’. Norman feared that that would someday destroy Paul, but took little worry in the possibility of it ever coming true, which it does later on in the film. Norman becomes serious in his school work and writing. He ends up attending Dartmouth College for six years and graduates, later becoming professor of English literature.

They use fast dinghies and arm themselves with assault rifles to overpower ships. Many ships today have smaller crews, relying on technology and so can be easily overpowered. Modern pirates use the some of the same tactics as Golden Age pirates. They often attack ships from astern at night, using grappling hooks and ropes or hooks on poles to board the ship before anyone raises the alarm. But modern pirates aren't always after a ship's cargo, since selling large amounts of goods requires access to markets that will accept them.
