The city did away with the street light. The city suggested to contract out businesses. Chuck Fowler a prominent business owner of a lavishly 3,000 acre high end resort made a blueprint of how the city should be run. The citizens agreed with his concept. Rawls would see this concept as the advantage continuing on their ladder of success while sharing their success with the less disadvantage being in this case most citizens of Colorado Springs.
According to Alcock Monuments are objects deliberately created to provoke memories. They both link to the past, and the future can be made through their materiality. Landscape however is a physical environment influenced by settlement patterns, boundaries, and the like. As I was reading this I began to think back on the Edlund article and Etruscan mountain and spring sanctuaries. In a way I think that Etruscan sanctuaries fill the hole that Alcock creates between monuments and landscapes because both the monument and the landscape are used to create one sacred space.
Two groups that could take action to respond to the issue of Urban growth and decline in Pyrmont are The friends of Pyrmont and The City West development corporation.

The pictures and information was a great way for me to learn about the foundation of Caldwell County as well as the establishment of Lenoir. I had not expected the museum to hold this information. The museum had different sections such as music, military and photography. Each of these sections were important in

To begin with when Castle made his high tops low tops it was the first time when shoes played a big role in the book. When Castle cut his shoes to go faster but this only hurt him because his classmate Shamika embarrassed him. “Shamika couldn’t get herself together long enough to even speak, so instead she just pointed at my feet” (Reynolds 80). What Shamika did made Castle so frustrated that he skipped school and made him realize it was a waste of money which was already a problem in his family. Another time shoes played a big role was when Castle stole the “Silver Bullets” from the sports store.
Many times, their relatives of loved ones were the ones being executed, creating emotional trauma. Elie Wiesel writes, “Smack in the middle of the road, two cauldrons of soup with no one to guard them….free for the taking. But who would dare? Fear was greater than hunger.” Starvation was another method used by the Nazis, only fear outranked being hungry.
William David Estrada’s nativity to Los Angeles gives him a particularly keen insight into the history of the Plaza and Los Angeles. He has served in various curator positions throughout the city and is currently the Curator of History at El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument.

Thematically and chronologically arranged, Estrada begins The Los Angeles Plaza with a detailed history of the Plaza area prior to colonial rule
I watched the Lochner v. New York case. Before I watched this case, I did some research and thought it wasn’t a really important or meaningful case because it is just a case that bakery owner against the Bakeshop Act law made by New York City. But After watching this video, I totally changed my mind. Just like the reporter said (at 1:30 of the video), “this case brings rise to an era that defined the supreme court for the next thirty years. Randy Barnett, a professor of Georgetown Law School, also showed how important this case was in American political history.
One of the tension that I found that was interesting is between the indigenous knowledge and western science. I think it was interesting to see the perspective between the indigenous people and the scientists. Going back to the readings/videos about Kennewick Man’s story, Kennewick is really rare and it was one of a kind, the reading states “Losing Kennewick Man means future scientists won’t have him to compare against other ancient remains.” Scientists wants to learn more about Kennewick man and they don’t want to lose it.
The corrido is a song in a narrative form, or a ballad. The songs were brought around by Mexican-Americans of the southwest. As Spaniards travelled, they carried these musical traditions with them to help make the transition easier. Many of the Mexican corridos became a musical tradition. These ballads became tradition especially around the Río Grande del Norte.
Michael Wang AP Euro, Period 4 Primary Source Analysis Assignment October 5th, 2016 Summary: Prior to the arrival of the European settlers, the indigenous people of the Americas were varied in culture and tradition and their population was around fifty million. However, once the Europeans arrived in 1492 with Christopher Columbus, the lives of the indigenous people were changed remarkably. The Europeans took advantage of the indigenous and used them as laborers to work cattle ranches, sugar plantations, and silver mines. The physical condition of the indigenous peoples worsened as they were fatigued from the labor and had little resistance to the diseases brought by the Europeans.
The passage I chose takes place during Magawisca’s trial. Towards the end of the trial, she tells Governor Winthrop she would rather be sentenced to death right away than placed back in the cell. To some this can be seen as Magawisca being weak. The text says she spoke with a sense of impatience for the first time. To me it shows that she is simply tired of being strong and she needs someone to come to her rescue.
