Discuss Fully Hawthrones Strong Women And Morally - 522 words
The experience to be around different cultures influenced me in many ways. For five years of my developing life (12-16) I lived on the Northwest Side of Chicago, which is called Humboldt Park. Humboldt Park is a multicultural neighborhood, mostly dominated by Latinos. Where I resided was 3240 West Evergreen Avenue in the heart and soul of Humboldt Park. My first week there in Humboldt was a worst, I hated it. This was my first time ever living in a place where I saw more than Black and White people were. Now I was seeing African Americans and Latinos. I couldn't stand anything about this neighborhood from the people, the city, and just my family for moving up here. A month later I started sc ...

John Davison Rockefeller has been accused by many as being a Robber Baron over the past century. He created the most powerful corporation the United States had ever seen: The Standard Oil Company. He began Standard Oil in 1865 and by 1881, it was comprised of more than forty other companies. In 1882 Rockefeller created the Standard Oil Trusts, and his company had become the most efficient corporation, producing the highest quality products as well as charging the lowest prices. Unlike Jay Gould, who used the judicial system to acquire companies, make a profit, and then leave that company in bankruptcy, Rockefeller was philanthropic in his endeavors, incorporating his acquired companies into ...

Farmer Dbq - 854 words
During the span of 1880-1900 farmers began to feel as if their ways of life were being threatened. Farmers felt that a competition with railroads in monopolies and trusts, currency circulation shortage, and the powerful forces of Mother Nature seemed to be putting them in debt or even out of business. However, not all of the currency circulation shortage complaints could be brought up against the government, monopolies, and trusts. Over production, and bad weather accounted for these problems, which made the farmers complaint's not completely valid. Competition was a major contributing factor to farmer discontent. Farmers were constantly competing with monopolies and trusts. Railroads were p ...

Slave Resistance - 1,156 words
It could be considered almost ludicrous that most African-Americans were content with their station in life. Although that was how they were portrayed to the white people, it was a complete myth. Most slaves were dissatisfied with their stations in life, and longed to have the right of freedom. Their owners were acutely conscious of this fact and went to great lengths to prevent slave uprisings from occurring. An example of a drastic measure would be the prohibition of slaves receiving letters. They were also not allowed to converge outside church after services, in hopes of stopping conspiracy. Yet the slaves still managed to fight back. In 1800, the first major slave rebellion was conceive ...

Uncle Toms Cabin - 1,231 words
"So you're the lady whose book started this great war." Abraham Lincoln said this to Harriet Beecher Stowe upon meeting her in 1862. This quote shows the great influence the novel had on the minds of its readers and on a nation in turmoil. At the height of racial tension in nineteenth century America, Stowe revealed the sufferings and hardships the slave was forced to endure.

In the novel, Stowe used strong-minded women that sent a message to female readers that they also can take action against slavery. Although Stowe was on the side of the slave, she sometimes exhibi ...

Picassos Les Desmoiselles Davignon - 1,414 words
Though the backbone of art was formed by academies that graduated classical artists, some of the most influential artists broke away from such academies to change the rules. Impressionists, led by Claude Monet, formed a group of artists originally rejected from the academies to paint in their own "objective reality." They painted art as sifted through their senses; taking into account the environment's affect on an object or placing the focus on everyday activity, the impressionists helped redefine art. While they started the process of the transformation of art, Pablo Picasso advanced it many times over. Though classically trained, Picasso painted art by what views he saw in his head and im ...

The Pete Principle - 599 words
"The Peter Principle" was first introduced by Lawrence Peter in a book titled "The Peter Principle". This book describes the downfalls of bureaucratic organizations. The book states that in a hierarchically structured business, people tend to be promoted up to their level of incompetence. This principle is based on the fact that in bureaucratic organizations new employees usually start in the lower ranks, but when they prove to be competent in the job that they were assigned, they get promoted to a higher-ranking job. This process of climbing the ladder can go on indefinitely, until the employee reaches a position where they are no longer competent. This is the moment the process stops, sinc ...
