War bonds are money that you give the government to finance wars in exchange for a certificate that entitles you to a larger sum of money in the future for their generosity. There were many ways that were used to advertise war bonds. The United States didnt want only the civilians to buy war bonds, they also wanted and advertised to the soldiers in the United States.

The Battle of the Bulge was an important fight because it was one that could have turned World War II around for the Germans. The Battle of the Bulge took place on December 16 1944. The Germans mobilized the last chance they had to win the war. The Germans wanted to cut the American forces in to two parts, because this way they could easily be destroyed. Hitler felt this was his last chance to win, because his forces were being pushed back and soon they would run out of the resources they would need to win the war. Hitler was mobilizing a task force of 500,000 Germans soldiers. The allies were slowly pushing through the Ardennes Forest on the German, Belgium boarder, with a force of 600,000 ...

Big Oil And Bus Ethics - 1,760 words
It can be argued (convincingly) that human's usage of fossil fuels is responsible for a large part of the world's pollution problems. The area that I will discuss is the interaction that the big oil companies have had with the environment surrounding their businesses in Alaska. I will not tackle the issue of whether it is right or wrong to extract or use fossil fuels. Instead, I will ignore the larger issue and concentrate on specific issues concerning the Arctic Slope activities of oil companies in Alaska. Because the North Slope oil fields are on American soil, the regulation of the industrial activities is far more stringent than other areas in the world. If we compared the North Slope oi ...

A group of people, such as the Arctic slope natives can be in favor of activities and still have their rights (unspoiled environment) violated. The right of habitat for the wildlife in the Arctic has been infringed upon to a degree by the oil companies. The problem with this argument is that the oil companies can offer proof that the wildlife in the area hasn't really suffered by ...

Structured Design - 984 words
Structured Design is a method to convert an ``informal specification'' including a set of data flow diagrams and process specifications into a design that could be implemented using a language like Pascal or C. It was developed by Edward Yourdon and Larry Constantine, reportedly by examining a number of systems that had been developed in the 1960's that were regarded as good design examples, and identifying common features and patterns that they contained. Structured Design does not produce designs that have a number of desirable properties: It doesn't take advantage of the newer features provided by object-oriented programming languages. While structured design provides some limited suppor ...

Triumph Or Tragedy - 1,646 words
Never, never, never give up, was coined by Sir Winston Churchill. This quote holds more meaning than could ever be put into words. Everyday we are faced with obstacles that occur in our lives. How we manage these everyday occurrences make us not only who we are, but also who we hope to become. Nineteen hundred eight six was an exceptional year filled with triumph and tragedy. May I never forget lessons learned and innocence lost. Tragic events do not preclude tragic outcomes. Leaving home was probably the hardest thing I ever had to do at the age of seventeen. For seventeen years I lived in the small ranch style house. I always dreamed of leaving, but never thought the time would come. Final ...

In a civil case, the trial jury is composed of 6 persons, with provision for the selection of alternate jurors. The trial jury is selected from the group previously described. A panel is called, and they take their place in the jury box (criminal) or impaneling room (civil).
