  • During The 1970s, Health Concerns About The Herbicides Brought About Government Restrictions That Caused A Sharp Decrease In - 1,180 words
    During the 1970s, health concerns about the herbicides brought about government restrictions that caused a sharp decrease in the manufacture and use of 2,4,5-T. Since 1983, the use of 2,4,5-T has been prohibited in the United States. Many other countries also have ended its use. Of additional concern is a contaminant called dioxin (2,3,7,8,-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, or TCDD), which often forms when 2,4,5-t is manufactured. Of the approximately 75 chemicals in the dioxin family, TCDD is the most toxic. It can cause chlorance, a skin disease, and is suspected to cause some kinds of cancer.

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt Franklin Delano Roosevelt is generally regarded as one of the United States' most effective Presidents. Whether the accolades are entirely justified or Roosevelt's effectiveness was simply a product of the time period in which he served as President will always be debated. However, one thing that no one can deny is that Roosevelt took an atypical route on his way to becoming President. Whether he was fighting an illness or coping with the death of a loved one, Roosevelt always managed to keep himself on track and to persist towards his goals and those of the country. People remember FDR for his actions during the Great Depression and World War II, but those actions ...

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.

The Victorians and many of their descendants believed in a balanced society; each sex complimented the other thus if men had a strong sex drive, women, in order to maintain the balance, were weaker. Sexually active women were believed to be acting against their very nature. It is one of the reasons that being a prostitute has long been a crime in this country. Until recently, going to a prostitute has not; men who used the services of prostitutes were simply succumbing to their natural drives, where as the prostitutes were acting in an unnatural fashion. In the early part of the twentieth century the medical profession gave support to the idea that most prostitutes were feeble m ...

His unprecedented election to four terms in office will probably never be repeated; the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, passed after his death, denies the right of any person to be elected president more than twice. Roosevelt held office during two of the greatest crises ever faced by the United States: the Great Depression of the 1930s, followed by World War II. His domestic program, known as the New Deal, introduced far-reaching reforms within the free enterprise system and prepared the way for what is often c ...

    World's Fair Crystla Palace During the 1800s Great Britains empire stretched around the world, and with raw materials easily available to them this way, they inevitably began refining and manufacturing all stages of many new machines and other goods, distributing locally and globally. However, despite being the central workshop of the world, Britain was not producing the highest quality of merchandise. When comparing factory-made products made in England to surrounding countries, most notably France, those products could not compare as far as craftsmanship and sometimes, simply innovation. It was suggested by Cole and supported by Prince Albert that England host a sort of free-for-all techno ...

    Zeus And Hera Many traditions had developed within American culture that breached this wall of separation. For example, our coins have "In God We Trust" printed into them, The Pledge of Allegiance still contains the phrase "under God," and many of our governmental ceremonies have prayer as their opening activity. For years, many public school districts mandated that the school day begin with some sort of prayer. The first case to come to the Supreme Court regarding school prayer was that of Engel v. Vitale in 1961. A group of ten parents sued the Board of Education of Union Free School District No. 9 in Hyde Park, New York for having the following prayer said aloud in the presence of a teach ...
