Theodore Roosevelt was the first Progressive president who made huge adjustments to the American political system while in office. He was incredibly forward thinking and invented the modern style of presidency. His political agenda, called the Square Deal, focused on rethinking the government’s relationship in the economy. One of the first ways he implemented this idea was through the Coal Miners Strike of 1902. In all previous cases of disagreements between bosses and workers, the government sided with the bosses.
Although the president is the head of the most lucrative nation in the world, this does not mean he is then always and automatically the most powerful person on the planet. However, a President’s actions while in office can shape the world around him as well as how the future unfolds. Take former US President Harry S. Truman for example; his enunciation of the Truman doctrine in March of 1947 permanently changed the world. Harry S. Truman was the 33rd American President who served his terms in office from April 12, 1945 to January 20, 1953. One of the important accomplishments during his presidency was the Truman Doctrine.

K. almost depleted the slim financial resources [of his company] by contracting for a fullpage advertisement in the July, 1906, issue of the Ladies' Home fournal." 30 John L. Kellogg's comments with respect to his father's actions are enlightening: 31 "W. K. Kellogg could have gone along advertising in a small, conservative way, letting the campaignaturally build itself up from the profits. But he wanted to get his product across in a hurry and he believed in it to the extent of literally risking his business on that one-page ad." During his first year of operations, it is said that Kellogg spent one-third of his company's working capital on advertising.
Swede will always be remembered as a light-hitting, rifled armed shortstop on the 1919 Chicago White Sox team. Swede was the youngest of the eight men who were banned. Even though he went through some rough patches he had a pretty successful life after his banishment. Swede supposedly made a great amount of money compared to the rest of his teammates in the fix. Every player who participated was supposed to make ten thousand dollars each.
Even though Díaz is considered as one of the most prominent dictators of Mexico, he left a strong print in the history of Mexico while laying the foundations that made the current country. As a matter of fact, not only Díaz brought political stability to Mexico, but he also stabilized its economy while bringing about modernization. However, he has been frequently criticized because he suppressed liberties and distributed unevenly wealth. Diaz’s dictatorial political system together with the capitalist economic transformation he introduced in the countryside were two important factors in causing the Mexican Revolution. Porfirio Díaz’s life was full of action and glory.
The 80s saw a massive boom in the economy (in the US). The period from 1982 to 1987 saw the greatest economic expansion, possibly in history. The ever-growing economy saw the emergence of many ambitious stockbrokers and made for the perfect environment for greed to arise. These real-life events were the basis for the movie “Wall Street” which came out in 1987, it conveyed the theme of greed and the potential consequences of bad decision making. Much like the 70s, although the movie was a realistic depiction of what could happen if stockbrokers grew to become too ambitious and greedy, it still failed to cause a substantial change on the target audience (stockbrokers) went about their business.
My character, Jay Gatsby appears in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s historical fiction novel, The Great Gatsby. I believe, Mr. Gatsby should win the award for “The Most Determined Person.” By determined, I mean he is steadfast in achieving a goal despite difficulty or delay. Some critics will state he represents The American Dream, yet he is much more than that. Set in New York during the 1920s, the novel is told from the perspective of Nick Carraway, who is the new neighbor to Mr. Gatsby. Gatsby is introduced as a very wealthy but mysterious man.
has made the world better is that it lets people volunteer and help others easier. Richard had a five year goal to have “at least 9 satellite operations providing more than 1,100 tons of food or the equivalent of 15 million meals a year”(Youngblood 2). In the beginning, his only goal was to get more satellites so more people would be able to volunteer at closer locations. Along with this Proudfit also had events that Laggis writes the people that signed up were also signing up for a second shift and some were almost turned down because that completely passed their goal of 450 volunteers (1). So many people had signed up they had completely passed their goal and those people enjoyed helping enough that they signed up for multiple shifts.
We have an abundance of arable and land minerals to redeem our country. Jamaica has the potential to produce much more than it has been doing agricultural. Our agriculture, though many are involved, has failed to meet its potential. Noted agronomists have even cited that Jamaica’s agriculture sector can put an end to unemployment especially among the youthful population in Jamaica. As it relates to our bad roads, Jamaica produces over a hundred tons of gypsum (the element that makes cement) every year.
