  • Barry's City Council Office
    4,719 words
    In January of 1990, Washington, DC, the seat of the federal government of the United States was turned upside down by scandal. While the headlines were filled with the efforts of the Bush Administration to crack down on drugs, the District's Mayor and symbol of black power against a nearly all white backdrop of authority was caught on videotape buying and than smoking crack cocaine with an exotic dancer two days before he was expected to announce an unprecedented fourth campaign for mayor. The s...
  • Electricity To Many Farmers

    Review of Frederick Lewis Allen: Since Yesterday: the 1930's America. (New York: Harper and Row, Publishers, Inc., 1939), 362 pp. Frederick Lewis Allen's book tells in great detail how the average American would have lived in the 1930's. He covers everything from fashion to politics and everything in between. He opens with a portrait of American life on September 3, 1929, the day before the first major stock market crash. His telling of the events immediately preceding and following this crash, ...
  • Government's Responsibility
    393 words
    What is the federal government's single greatest responsibility to the public? In my opinion the federal government has many responsibilities to the public, but most importantly is its pledge of protection to the public. When I say protection, I mean not only from military attacks from other countries, but by supplying funds for all the needs of the citizens. As the population in the U.S. increases and federal funds decrease, the government tends to forget all of the little people who elected th...
  • Athenian Citizens
    309 words
    The average Athenian was poorly paid, uneducated, and probably would rather watch athletic contests than go to the theater. Yet, amazingly, fifth-century Athens became a fountainhead of Western civilization in the study of history, architecture, sculpture, philosophy, and drama. No one can really explain why all this happened in that city at that time unless it was because the Athenians' enormous spirit and energy led them to explore their world with a keen eye and an open mind. Like the early A...
  • One Asteroid
    428 words
    The U.S. federal government is summoning the world's top scientists to an urgent conference this summer to plan defenses against an attack that could wipe out an American city or disrupt the whole country's infrastructure. No, it's not global terrorism. The scientists will map ways to combat an asteroid attack, a cosmic sucker punch like the collision that killed the dinosaurs 65 million years ago and flattened a Siberian forest in 1908. While the world's attention is focused on the real threat ...
  • End Of Absolute Monarchy
    596 words
    Love it or hate it, buzzing, sweaty, exotic Bangkok is a city that really is larger than life. For some, the frenetic pace, heat, traffic and lack of personal space can be overpowering and are good reasons to pass through the city as quickly as possible but, for many others, the sheer dynamism is intoxicating. A curious blend of the traditional East with the modern West, Bangkok's every street has a surprise in hold for the visitor. Ramshackle buildings crouch next to exotic temples surrounded b...
  • Change Cities
    349 words
    The late 1800's were a time of changing of immigration, transportation, and government, which in turn changed cities to a drastic amount. Immigration played a big part in changing the culture of the cities into their own unique culture for every city. Transportation let the people still be connected to other cities without having to travel for months to get there. The government only did a small part with changing cities due to their low involvement in culture. With the immigration of Europeans ...
  • Inland Towns And Cities Of Milan
    1,052 words
    There were various reasons for the ability of certain towns in Italy to establish a certain amount of self-government. The location of the maritime cities such as Genoa was able to benefit from the crusades making them powerful. This resulted in a knock on effect to the main inland towns and cities in the north due to increase in trade. This caused prosperity and growth, because of this and also because of certain socio-economic changes originating in the countryside, the cities and towns starte...
  • City Of God The Members
    1,435 words
    According to St Augustine, should members of the City of God regard political power as something that was good or bad or with indifference? St Augustine has long held a reputation as one of the most influential and important political thinkers of all time. His ideologies and concepts which were formulated many centuries ago, have continued to hold their weight even in our contemporary world. It is this apparent ability to bridge the obvious cultural differences that remain between the society th...
  • Positive Aspects Of City County Consolidation
    481 words
    #1) In a city-county consolidation, two adjoining jurisdictions are absorbed into a single government. In essence, the structure and function of local government are provided by a solitary jurisdiction. While there are 32 areas that have decided to consolidate their government here in the U. S, there are just as many who have ruled against it. For this reason, it becomes apparent that both pros and cons exist when deciding to undergo a city-county consolidation. In Georgia, both the Athens-Clark...
