Andrew Lloyd Webber has become a household name throughout the entire world. Not only do people flock to see his shows, but the pure fact that people outside of the theatre world know the composer of certain musicals is an accomplishment in itself. He has changed the musical theatre world.

Cats has been translated into eleven languages and has grossed over a total of two billion dollars.
In a sense, Elvis Presley created today’s pop culture. Elvis was first awarded the title “King of Rock n’ Roll” in 1956 by Robert Johnson. Many attribute this title to his popularity and the fact that he was able to draw the largest crowds, control the top of the charts, and sell the most records. What is sometimes overlooked is the fact that Elvis was able to bring gospel, rockabilly, country swing, blues and rhythm so effortlessly together with his voice and arrangements. The undeniable fact about his music is that it was filled with an energy and passion that couldn’t be resisted.
I think I would have done better in this stock market simulation if I were more patient and more willing to take risks. I then bought more DTO stock and had a total of 222 shares. Between week 3 and week 4, DTO went up so much that it took me out of the hole, but in week 4, it took a downturn and each share went down by $20, which destroyed that stock. So I sold DTO and bought back Amazon stock. I stuck with Amazon for the rest of the simulation because it was still going up in value.
On January 8th, 1935 one of the greatest influences to pop and country was born. Elvis Aaron Presley changed the way people heard and saw music through his songs and the way he performed them.

He brought a way of performing that people had never experienced before, he was electrifying when he performed on stage.
How the Roaring 20’s created the American Dream and how it’s no longer achievable. Paragraph one with be about how the American dream has become no longer achievable with a source to help prove the point.“The labor turmoil and difficulties of the transition back to peacetime production caused a short but sharp recession from 1920 to '21, with unemployment briefly exceeding 11%.However, the situation soon turned around, thanks in no small part to Commerce Secretary—and future President—Herbert Hoover's success in convincing major industrial leaders to voluntarily increase wages and production in order to pull the entire economy out of its slump. By 1922, the economy was growing robustly, a pattern it would follow more or less continuously until the Great Crash of 1929.” (Shmoop) As time progress I need to make the point that the economy changes creating divides between economic classes. To show that my claim is valid. The second paragraph is to complete my idea of the change of economy with a source to make it a stronger argument.

The war was over and American society wasn’t directly damaged, economy grew faster than ever due to the demand of American goods. Industrial production doubled. However, every high has a low.

My collage I made explains and shows multiple ideas. My collage is about the stock market crash of 1929. A stock market crash is a sudden dramatic decline of stock prices across a significant cross-section of a stock market, resulting in a significant loss of paper wealth. The stock market crash of 1929 was a surprise crash and no one thought it would crash so dramatically. During the roaring twenties which is the 1920s, the world was such a happy place.
The Great Crash generally refers to the stock market crash (in America - Wall Street) on 29 October, 1929. It started on Thursday, 23 October when just before the 3:00 pm bell rang, the stock prices instantly fell. For the following week stocks fell lower and faster and changed hands so fast, the machines that kept track of these stocks seemed unable to cope up with the activity. All along while President Herbert Hoover reassured the people of America that the nation was “on a sound and prosperous basis”, more panic spread and because the uncertainty and risk was rising, people wanted their money back. In all this frenzy the United States Securities Regulation agencies could have shut down the market but they feared that would only spread more fear and could have led to a violent display of the emotions of the public.
