  • At First Glance The Wizard Of Oz Seems To Be A Simple Childrens Story, A Fairytale Of Sorts Further Examination However Revea - 834 words
    At first glance The Wizard of Oz seems to be a simple childrens story, a fairytale of sorts. Further examination however reveals that there is much more to this story. The movie, which is based on the book The Wonderful World of Oz by Lyman Frank Baum, contains many intriguing symbols. Included among these symbols are the Wicked Witch of the East, the Munchkins, the Wizard, the ruby (silver) slippers and more. Baum chose these symbols to create an allegory of the populist movement of the late 19th century. The most obvious symbol is perhaps the most important. Baum uses the Land of Oz to represent the United States. We can see that the land of the Munchkins represents the East Coast, as ther ...

  • Britain Return To Gold In 1925 - 1,429 words
    Britain Return to Gold in 1925 Economic History The Gold Standard, like the Exchange Rate Mechanism, ensures stable exchanges and economic discipline. Why, then, was there so many criticism of the return to gold in 1925? In March 1919, the large trade deficit and low level of gold reserves resulted in formal abandonment of the gold stand by the UK. On Apr. 28, 1925, Churchill announced in his Budget speech that there would be an immediate return to gold at pre-1913 parity. Reddaway (Lloyds Bank Review, 1970) expresses in his article that returning to gold at $4.76 was a failure of the committee that they had not done enough research and had not have enough consideration and look at other cou ...

  • Drug Testing - 1,601 words
    Drug Testing Drug testing is a laboratory procedure that looks for evidence of drug consumption by analyzing urine, blood, and hair samples. If tested, you must provide a sample in front of an observer to make sure that it is not tampered with. Samples are then sent to a laboratory for analysis, after which the employer is notified of the results (Wodell 1). Exactly who should be subject to the new trend of mandatory drug tests, is the big question being raised among businesses, schools, athletes and federal government employees. Businesses feel that random drug testing of their employees will create higher productivity, save on health care costs, improve employee turnover, prevent less acci ...

At the Democratic National Convention in San Francisco on July 6, 1920, Roosevelt was nominated for Vice President to run with Governor James M. Cox of Ohio, and he immediately began to campaign in Chicago. One month later, he resigned his post as Assistant Secretary of the Navy in order to better concentrate on this position. (Ginna 164) Unfortunately, Roosevelt and Cox lost by a landslide in this election on November 2 to Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge (nscds.pvt.k12.il.us). Roosevelt felt that his time ...

The business cycles of booms and busts that monetary inflation causes are even more damaging to society. When government inflates, it lowers the interest rate below the proper market level, which is dependent on saving. The artificially low interest rate misleads businesses into making uneconomic speculative investments and creates an inflationary boom. When the credit expansion slows or stops, investment errors are revealed bankruptcies and unemployment result. Central banks like the Feder ...

    Great Depression Great Depression "The Great Depression of the 1930's was a worldwide phenomenon composed an infinite number of separate but related events." The Great Depression was a time of poverty and despair caused by many different events. Its hard to say what caused this worldwide depression because it's all based on opinion as opposed to factual data. There are many contributing factors but not one specific event can be pin pointed for starting the depression. It is believed that some events contribute more than others-such as the Stock Market Crash of 1929. The Stock Market Crash of 1929 was in the majorities opinion, a long and overdue crash that was bound to happen. Prices sky-roc ...

  • Has Gallo Proven The Role Of Hiv In Aids - 2,768 words
    Has Gallo Proven The Role Of Hiv In Aids? Introduction In 1982, Robert Gallo from the National Cancer Institute in the USA, put forward the hypothesis that the cause of AIDS is a retrovirus. One year later, Myron Essex and his colleagues (1) found that AIDS patients had antibodies to the Human T-cell Leukemia virus Type-1 (HTLV-I), a virus discovered by Gallo a few years earlier. At the same time, Gallo and his colleagues (2) reported the isolation of HTLV-I from AIDS patients and advocated a role for this retrovirus in the pathogenesis of AIDS. This hypothesis however, was not without a few problems: 1. While HTLV-I was accepted to induce T4-cell proliferation and cause adult T-cell leukaem ...

Asia's crisis was classified as "The Great Asian Slump that is for the record books" ("Saving Asia it's time to get radical," 75) making the Latin America's crisis of 1995 look like a minor wobble. Hong Kong announced that its economy shrank 2.8% in the first quarter of 1998. Economist forecast Indonesia's GDP to fall an overwhelming 15.1% this year. Comparing that to Americas worst post war recession when the economy shrank 2.1% ("Saving Asia, It's time to get radical," 75). This record-break ...

  • Inflation Rates - 1,069 words
    Inflation Rates The price of one currency in terms of another is called the exchange rate. The exchange rate affects the economy in our daily lives because it affects the price of domestically produced goods sold abroad and the cost of foreign goods bought domestically. Mexicans use pesos, French use francs, Austrians use schillings, and this use of different monies by different countries results in the need to exchange one money for another to facilitate trade between countries(Husted 315). Without the exchange rate it would make it impossible to purchase goods in other countries that have a different currency. Day-to-day movements in exchange rates are closely related to peoples expectatio ...

  • Lord Liverpool - 1,864 words
    Lord Liverpool How convincing is the argument that the year 1822 marked a turning point in the way Lord Liverpools government approached its domestic policy ? On the face of it , the year 1822 did mark a significant turning point in the way Lord Liverpools administration dealt with its domestic policy . The importance of the cabinet reshuffle after the imminent death of Lord Castlereagh in 1822 , and the perceived move toward Liberal Toryism following this date has been well documented by a number of early historians , including W.R Brock and Spencer Walpole. With the changes of 1821-3 Liverpool was able to gather round him a group of liberal minded men ready to take whatever opportunities ...

A lack of repression after 1822 can be explained by the improved economic conditions and the dying down of public unrest around this time. The government however had not changed its policy on violence as the legalisation of trade unions demonstrated in 1825 .The amendment of the previous law passed in 1824 gave harsh penalties for those using violence in trade union protests and showed the Tory governments continuos support for repression in the face of public unrest .Again 1822 did not mark a turning point in the way Liverpool approached his domestic policy as repressive measures in 1825 demonstrate .The Liberal ...

    Otto von Bismarck or Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince von Bismarck, Count von Bismarck-Schnhausen, Duke von Lauenburg--was a Prussian statesman who in 1871 founded the German Empire and served as its first chancellor for 19 years. Once the empire was established, he actively and skillfully pursued pacific policies in foreign affairs, succeeding in preserving the peace in Europe for about two decades. But in domestic policies his patrimony was less benign, for he failed to rise above the authoritarian proclivities of the landed squirearchy to which he was born (Britannica, 1997). Foreign policy Until his resignation in 1890, Bismarck had a relatively free hand in conduct of foreign policy. After t ...

In medicine, Ritalin's primary use is treatment of Attention Deficit /Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

These guarantees specifically included minimum wages, maximum hours, and the right to bargain as a group ...
