Automobiles in the 1950s Another element that was present in the 1950’s was automobiles. Automobiles were something that everyone once dreamed of owning. Now after the war. they could finally own one. Automobiles of the 1940’s were dull and very plain. This was because designers were too busy designing tanks, planes, etc... for the ongoing war. The major event that took place that changed the way cars looked and how they performed happened on October 14, 1947. This was when Chuck Yeager broke t
canal building before 1840 Throughout history, there has been a need for better mode of transportation in order to keep up with economical growth. Canals have been around since the Ancient Roman Civilizations and still exist today. Canals have been so important because they allow people to travel from one place to another and back by way of water. They require very little energy and maintenance but help trade flow more efficiently. This can be proved by observing the United States economy in th
Charles Lindbergh A small one-engine plane with "The Spirit of St. Louis" painted on the side lands at Le Bourget field, in the midst of thousands of cheering spectators. A tall, thin, sandy haired, twenty-five-year-old man emerges from the cockpit and timidly smiles. Modestly, he says, "Are there any mechanics here?” What this man has just accomplished is something nobody had done before: fly nonstop over the Atlantic Ocean alone. This was one of the many achievements of this man we call Lindb
charles lindenburgh Charles Lindbergh One of the greatest heroes the world has ever known Charles Augustus Lindbergh. He is most famous for his transatlantic flight from New York to Paris. Lindbergh acquired great fame for doing “good will” tours in Latin America. Other than politicians and war heroes no one has yet quite matched his fame. He was a genus when it came to aviation and mechanics. He advised the making and design of several planes from ones made of wood and wire to supersonic jets.
JFK IN VIETNAM JFK IN VIETNAM From the 1880s until World War II, France governed Vietnam as part of French Indochina, which also included Cambodia and Laos. The country was under the formal control of an emperor, Bao Dai. From 1946 until 1954, the Vietnamese struggled for their independence from France during the first Indochina War. At the end of this war, the country was temporarily divided into North and South Vietnam. North Vietnam came under the control of the Vietnamese Communists who had
Long Island Nuclear The question of whether Long Island should have nuclear power plants is controversial. There are two sides that can be taken; however, both sides have their own share of problems. If we were to chose not to have nuclear plants, then eventually all natural resources will run out. Oil supplies as of right now will run out in two hundred years. But that is if we keep on using the same amount of oil that is consumed today. Our use of oil is certainly not being diminished; in fac
morrill act The Morrill act was written in 1862 and named after the acts sponsor, Vermont congressman Justin Smith Morrill. Morrill was from then on called the father of the agricultural colleges. Under the provisions of the act, each state was granted 30,000 acres of federal land for each member of Congress representing that state. (Altogether, the states and territories received 11,367,832 acres). The lands were sold and the resulting funds were used to finance the establishment of one or
People of the Civil War Ullysses S. Grant Ulysses Simpson Grant served effectively with Zachary Taylor\'s army at Monterey during the Mexican war. Right when the war began Grant obtained a position on the staff of General George McClellan. During the war he showed courage in both physically and morally manners. In February 1862 Grant captured Fort Henry and Fort Donelson with help from the Federal navy. In October he was appointed commander of the Department of Tennessee, and told to take Vicks
The Cold War Beginnings Although the Soviet Union and the United States had been allies in World War II, disagreements over the organization of the postwar world led the two countries to compete militarily and politically through the next several decades. In the 1950s this competition was particularly intense, resulting in the Cold War and in regional proxy wars. The U.S. perceived Soviet support for the spread of communism as a strong threat, and American foreign policy attempted to contain an
cloning Abstract As bioethics Leon R. Kass points out in his essay The Wisdom of Repugnance, those who defend human cloning regard themselves mainly as friends of freedom: the freedom of individuals to reproduce, the freedom of scientists and inventors to discover and devise and to foster ‘progress’ in genetic knowledge and technique." Kass goes on to stress that in fact, a "right to reproduce" has always been a peculiar and problematic notion. Rights generally belong to individuals, but this i

Children and people with weakened immune systems are the most susceptible to TB. Half of all u
Cloning and Genetic Engineering in the Food Animal Industry INTRODUCTION When the Roslin Institute\'s first sheep cloning work was announced in March 1996 the papers were full of speculation about its long-term implications. Because of this discovery, the media’s attention has focused mainly on discussion of the possibility, of cloning humans. In doing so, it has missed the much more immediate impact of this work on how we use animals. It\'s not certain this would really lead to flocks of clone
jean prouve I am only a man of my time who refuses to copy. ( Jean Prouve) No other comment could summarize Jean Prouve so simply. He was in every sense of the time, if not ahead of it. Jean grew up surrounded by artists whose concern it was to make art accessible to all. This philosophy would become the framework for Jean evident in his projects and work ethics. Prouve mainly worked on practical and social projects such as public buildings, market halls, schools, mass housing and furniture

Gothic Architecture1 The church in the Middle Ages was a place that all people, regardless of class, could belong to. As a source of unity, its influence on art and architecture was great during this time. As society drew away from the feudal system of the Romanesque period, a new spirit of human individualism began to take hold; alas, the birth of Gothic. Here, the Church became a place where humanity became more acceptable, alas becoming the ideal place to visual such new ideals. The beauty a

Roman The Romans gained much of their engineering skill from the Etruscans and drew on Etruscan and Asian models for the semicircular arch. From them, the Romans learned the use of the keystone arch, which enabled them to build extremely strong and durable structures. Many of these engineering and architectural projects are still standing. Some are still in use after two thousand years like this bridge in Spain. Early Roman architects were influenced by Greek post-and-lintel construction. But t

Life and Works Who is Leonardo Da Vinci? Leonardo had a keen eye and quick mind that led him to make important scientific discoveries, yet he never published his ideas. He was a gentle vegetarian who loved animals and despised war, yet he worked as a military engineer to invent advanced and deadly weapons. He was one of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance, yet he left only a handful of completed paintings. It may seem unusual to include Leonardo da Vinci in a list of paleontologist
perspective Perspective Use of perspective in art finds its root in one man, Filippo Brunelleschi. Although we dont know for sure, it is likely that Brunelleschi also invented linear, or scientific perspective.

Donatellos Feast of Herod was a groundbreaking work by

These barnstormers performed acrobatic shows and gave local people rides. During this period of time the public
Albert Einstein1 The Life of Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879, in Southern Germany. One year after his birth his fathers business failed, so the family moved to Munich, and began a new business manufacturing electrical parts.

Albert’s first scientific revelation came when he was five years of age, and his father showed him
Augustus Ceasar Two of the most destructive problems facing the late Roman Republic were the instability and disunity caused by incessant civil wars. Rome\'s rapid expansion, after the Punic Wars, resulted in socioeconomic changes that permanently divided the state. Both aristocratic and plebeian parties sought total control of Rome and tried to destroy each other. Civil war was the continuation of party politics by other means. Consequently, the power of the military became supreme. Control of
