    ... ant to have to worry about cleaning up anything that might be unearthed later. Problems with reuse As construction began, planners soon discovered that although the city was saving time and money by reusing Bergstrom, there were drawbacks. One example came the day after the Air Force vacated the base. All across Bergstrom, residents and employees had turned off the water when they left. The resulting water pressure was more than the old system of pipes could handle. The city field staff ran around for months chasing water leaks. The city soon discovered that much of the base's utility system could not be reused, resulting in one of the first increases in the airport budget. Utilities the ...

  • As Twentyfirst Century Draws Near, There Appears To Be In The World An Era Of Unprecedented Peace Contrary To The Predictions - 2,243 words
    As twenty-first century draws near, there appears to be in the world an era of unprecedented peace. Contrary to the predictions that the end of the Cold War will bring about the fragmentation of international order and the emergence of multipolar rivalry among atomistic national units, today the worlds major powers enjoy co-operative relations and world economy is progressively liberalising and integrating.

In this paper, a clear foreign policy strategy for the United States of America in Europe and Eurasia will be outline ...

Australia and Canada were important trading partners for China, but Beijing's most important relations with the developed world were with Japan and Europe (Bell 1991). For much of its long history, China has had the status of a major power. As China's economic stature grows so too will its impact on the security and politics of the region and the world. Its relationships with the United States and Japan will be particularly critical to the stability of the Asia Pacific, and therefore of Australia. China is likely to be among the three or four largest economie ...

All these are just a few examples of politicians taking every advantage possible to gain more money for their campaigns, undermining the legitimacy of the American government. The method in which we elect the President, on the other hand, is fairly legitimate. The electoral college consists of representatives who we elect, who then elect the President. Because this fills the requirement of regularly scheduled elections, it is a legitimate process. The President is extremely powerful in foreign policy making; so powerful that scholars now speak of the "Imperial Presidency," implying ...

In addition, the availability of credit led to reckless spending which would further endanger the economy. This unequal distribution of wealth combined with a free spending attitude weakened the economy and led to the Great Depression. The discussion continues with bracket IV, which covers the time period 1940-1975 and pairs the number one seed in the bracket "The Vietnam War" against fourth seed "World War II".
