Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a spy? To have an intimidating job as such, could be quite overwhelming for some, but not for Edward Lee Howard, America’s Most Wanted Spy. The events that transpired as a result of Howard’s actions will leave many speechless. David Wise’s book is one that has been widely publicized and read by many as it contains many striking matters regarding national security. The author’s contribution, despite his own personal beliefs, to the book The Spy Who Got Away is immensely informative and unbiased as it is based entirely on facts gathered from numerous verified interviews.
It is still unknown exactly what the burglars were looking for, but it played little role in the 1972 presidential campaign. A pair of Washington Post journalists began publishing investigative stories that made it clear that persons close to the president had ordered the burglary and then tried to “cover up” White House involvement. Further Congressional hearings revealed a larger pattern of wiretapping, break-ins, and attempts to sabotage political opposition. The fact that Nixon had made tape recordings of conversations that took place in his office, caused Archibald Cox to get involved. He was a special prosecutor that the president reluctantly hired to investigate the Watergate affair.
The National Security Agency is an intelligence organization in the United States that monitors not only foreign countries but American citizens as well. Known as a whistleblower to some, but a true hero, Edward Snowden leaked classified documents from the NSA leaving almost everyone second guessing the government and how secure their phones are. Edward Snowden dropped out of his high school before he was even 16 years old and went to community college instead because he wanted to study computers. He attended Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland two different times. This first was from 1999 to 2001 and then again from 2004 to 2005.
In his short novel he has been able to simplify and explain a very complicated and constantly debated time in America’s history. This author seems to have a great understanding of the New Deal and the Great Depression giving the audience an introduction of a huge economic travesty and how the government and our society responded to it. The decade that is being written about has always been a topic that catches a lot of attention because of the fear it brings to Americans all over our nation. Because of our constant need to understand and be aware of what is going on with our current economic status this book would be a great addition to add to your knowledge. I would recommend this perspective and analytical book to anyone with a thirst to compare the times of the Depression and our current economic standings.
Ethical challenges are of universal span; many people including police officers are confronted with the opportunities for violating organizational rules and norms daily. Most of the stories about police officers in the media, including Cops and Criminal Minds, are about respectable police officers, but the intense 2001 movie Training Day is not. Alonzo Harris, a veteran police officer with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), is training Jake Hoyt, a rookie officer on his first day with the narcotics unit. Harris’ character is an example of police officers’ potential for corruption. For instance, when Harris misuses the police authority and uses some fake arrest warrant seizing millions of dollars from a former LAPD veteran, now an informant
A complete quote from Mr. Martin Bashir, late of MSNBC, but worked there at the time of this quote.

A FBI study indicated that since 1989, DNA evidence excluded the primary suspect in 25% of sexual assault cases. Sexual assault cases are of really high importance and happen worldwide, and DNA evidence makes it hard for the assaulter to deny his/her actions. This is due to the traceable DNA, a person would inject in his/her victim after sexual intercourse is conducted. DNA could be a revolutionary turning point in the world of crime solving, because of its durability in this world, which could last for decades, explaining many unsolved mysteries that occurred in the
Church,” written by Edgar Lee Masters, the speaker was an attorney for a big-city insurance company who controlled whether a person was guilty or not. He would use this to his advantage quite often. Because he had all this control in the justice system, he became very successful as an attorney and was even praised after death. In the poem, he refers to Butch Weldy as “the crippled,” considering he was in a horrific accident at the factory he worked at. However, Weldy did not see any type of compensation for this accident, for this was the way Church would make his fortune.
In the early 1970s the Watergate Scandal rocked America and eventually led to the resignation of Richard Nixon. The Washington Post assigned reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein to the incident, and through their investigative journalism, they traced the Watergate break-in back to Nixon. All the President’s Men showcases Woodward and Bernstein’s investigation of Watergate, whereas in The Final Days Woodward and Bernstein tell the story of the last days of the Nixon presidency. In All the President’s Men and The Final Days, Woodward and Bernstein use third person omniscient narration to show the investigation of the media and the lack of morality of the Nixon administration.
