The Great Inflation
were met by the familiar expedient of the printing presses. Note
circulation increased rapidly, and by November 1923 had reached almost 92
trillion marks. With less than three per cent of government expenditure
being met from income and with the cost of one dollar at four billion
marks, Germany was in the throes of economic and social chaos. Starvation
became a reality for millions of people, despite a bumper cereal harvest,
as shops reverted to the barter system. Farmers refused to accept the
effectively worthless, banknotes in exchange for grain, and food quickly
began to run short in the cities. Prices ...
Causes Of The Great Depression
... and between the U.S. and Europe. This imbalance of wealth created an unstable economy. The excessive speculation in the late 1920's kept the stock market artificially high, but eventually lead to large market crashes. These market crashes, combined with the mal distribution of wealth, caused the American economy to capsize.
The "roaring twenties" was an era when our country prospered tremendously. The nation's total realized income rose from $74.3 billion in 1923 to $89 billion in 1929(end note 1). However, the rewards of the "Coolidge Prosperity" of the 1920's were not shared evenly among all Americans. Accor ...
Dead Man Walking
... the day of his death. During this phase of the
film Sister Helen tries to get Poncelet to tell her about his own life. Poncelet
tells her about his life and why he was put on death row. Poncelet was
convicted along with another man in the murder of the youth and a girl after
raping the girl. Sister Helen is very sympathetic and is also looked down
upon for this reason. Though she is repressed she still goes on helping
Poncelet and she digs around in his feelings and soul. Sister Helen eventually
finds a good soul in Matthew Poncelet, a person no one else knows.
Matthew constantly denies to Sister Hel ...
The Clinton Scandal
... at that time? It took almost seven months before that admission came, and that only came because of him having to testify in front of Kenneth Starr’s Grand Jury.
Your admission last night was very disappointing. Although you admitted to answering questions truthfully, what happened to completely? How many questions did you leave unanswered? How many more lies will Kenneth Starr’s investigation uncover? Where was the term "I lied" in your speech? You admitted nothing. You went before the people and gave a pitiful speech so that it can be spun as a heart-felt admission of guilt in front of the American peop ...
The Decline Of The Plains Indians
... three major were fighting between the American troops and the Indians, the extreme loss of buffalo, and the passing of the Dawes Act.
The first concentrated fighting broke out in Colorado, just after the Civil war. Government officials tried to force the Arapaho and Cheyenne from an area that had been granted to them ten years earlier. Warfare continued for three years until Black Kettle, Cheyenne chief, was trapped at Sand Creek in eastern Colorado. The militia ignored Black Kettle’s repeated attempts to surrender and killed men, women and children. This was the start of the many wars between Indians and the Unit ...
The Iran-Contra Affair

An Independent special prosecutor, former federal judge Lawrence E. Walsh,
wa appointed to investigate the activities of persons involved in the arms
sale or contra aid or both, including marine Lt. Col. Oliver North of the
National Security Council (NSC) staff.
Reagan appointed a review board headed by former Republican senator
John Tower. The Tower commission's report in February 1987 criticized the
president's passive management style. In a nationaly televised address on
March 4, Reagan accepted the reports judgement without serious disagreement.

Ancient Egyptain Art
... a fleshy, full look to it and most of the features are very blunt, giving it a very healthy, powerful appearance. The eyes are empty as are the eyes of most ancient sculptures so as not to give them any particular focus or expression, and they are styled with regular upper and lower curves, making them semicircular. The mouth is long and fine-lipped which is typical of Fourth Dynasty kings. It curves neither up nor down, showing no emotion whatsoever, creating a very vacant, placid stare. The Seated Statue of Gudea and The Female Head from Uruk are just a couple of other statues with the same empty, expression ...
Body Art In The Extreme
... regulation has not enforced hygiene requirements for tattoo parlors, disease such as Hepatitis C thrive in these environments. Another disease that can be acquired is HIV. The government does not force tattoo parlors to use new needles or to sanitize the old ones. Also, tattoos can get easily infected and leave a scar if not properly taken care of. Sometimes, people die from ink poisoning if too much ink gets into the blood stream. I haven’t even touched on how painful it is to get a tattoo and how painful it will be to obtain a disease. Young adults do not consider the dangers of a tattoo until it is ...
Events Of The Civil War
... in size. In the year before, the North had lost an enormous amount of lives, but had more than enough to lose in comparison to the South. General Grant became known as the "Butcher" (Grant, Ulysses S., Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant, New York: Charles L. Webster & Co.,1894) and many wanted to see him removed. But Lincoln stood firm with his General, and the war continued. This paper will follow the happenings and events between the winter of 1864-65 and the surrender of The Confederate States of America. All of this will most certainly illustrate that April 9, 1865 was indeed the end of a tragedy.
... the eye. Something misspelled, perhaps? The Beetles? No, The Beatles. What's in their name? In the words of Beatle John Lennon, "when you hear it, the name is little crawly things. When you see it, it's "beat" music." I think that's quite attractive to a record store browser, don't you?
Of course, another thing that could catch a browsing customer would be the pictures on the album. The fronts of record albums are versatile that way because one can fit a lot on them. I have looked at the images on a few Beatles' records and, I must say, they are rather attractive and flashy. One particular cover that I was able ...
