The dynamic between the two brothers is quite interesting since they seem at first not to have a lot in common. Their behavior and actions demonstrate perfectly the differences between the two brothers. One could underline the fact that the dynamic between the two brothers is different from what we previously seen in Tex or The Outsiders because Peter and Edmund have two sisters.
In Sunil Yapa’s “Your Heart Is A Muscle The Size Of A Fist”, Chief Bishop is torn between his beliefs and his passion as the head of the Seattle Police Department. Bishop’s character is confused on what is the right thing to do, because of his personal beliefs and his moral duty to his city. In general, Chief Bishop is an overall good person. He genuinely cares for his city, the people in it, and will protect it at all cost. Chief Bishop’s personality reveals a sense of patriarchy, because while he was married to his wife he did take on the father role of his step-son Victor. That symbolizes patriarchy, because that wasn’t a role he signed up for nor had to do, but not once did he complain. He saw victor as his son regardless of race or biological genetics, not because he had to but because he wanted to. After his wife died, he took on the role of a single parent because that was his duty to himself that Victor would be taken
We chose to do our character analysis on Link because he is a well-rounded character who changes throughout the story. While Link makes his first appearance in chapter fourteen, he has a large impact in Melba’s life from then on out. He starts off in the story as a bystander. He does not physically attack the African-American students, but he does nothing to stop the attacks and threats that they must deal with. When Link does finally step into the story and begins to help Melba he changes into an ally for The Little Rock Nine.
If I were mayor I would… Make better highways so you don’t have to go all the way across town just to get to one place. Did you know that the highways in my town will not be completely done until I’m in college or so on? This is why I would be mayor of Sioux City wouldn’t you change that because it is causing people to risk their life’s trying to get to one place. In the morning you can tell there are a lot of traffic so some kids might be late to school, maybe your mom or dad might be late to work to. But the thing that just crazy is the things that people say the rudeness and the character that people are becoming. After all there is nice things here in this small town that I live in. Well I live in Sioux City, Iowa and we have a hard rock

“Someday, the capitalist system will disappear in the United States, because no social class system has even eternal. One day, class societies will disappear” - Fidel Castro. Peter Singers’ “A Solution To World Poverty” is viewed as a drastic way to end world poverty. Barbara Lazear Aschers “On Compassion” makes the reader understand that it is okay to help the lower class. Singer and Ascher have contrasting viewpoints on social class, particularly on donating money and the willingness to save a lower class citizen. However Singer and Ascher do agree on helping the lower class in anyway possible.
Stop and Frisk has been a controversial issue since it was first enacted in 1964. Stop and Frisk is a officer protection procedure where a person is stopped for what the officer deems "reasonably suspicious" and then if needed the officer will frisk the person for weapons. The part that has been deemed controversial and what had many departments in hot water was the fact that many of the citizens were being stopped solely on their race and because they were in a bad part of town.
Republican Robert Bentley, Alabama Governor, is a man of compassion and love. He is concerned about “the least of these.” His agenda to improve Alabama’s economic problems include job creation, tax breaks to help businesses grow, and improving highways to help industries move into rural areas.
In Chris Sweda’s article,”As CPS schools empty: Mayor Emanuel, don’t let this crisis go to waste”, he informs the audience how CPS schools are actually still in debt. Sweda validates how elementary schools are closing left and right in the chicago areas and that's including the school system being still in debt with teachers pensions. Mayor Rahm Emanuel doesn't want to mislead teachers, union leaders, and parents on the perception of how he believes educations is the most important key factor of keeping CPS schools running. Mayor Emanuel believes in downsizing classrooms to decrease the money of these half vacant CPS and move the students to better safer schools. It does not make sense in the eye of the Mayor to keep these low populated
Chief Davis exhibits many external focuses which in my opinion benefited his department more than they harmed it. While Chief Fortier was more focused on the internal roles he thought necessary to make positive lasting changes in his department. This is not to say Chief Fortier was unsuccessful in all areas or that Chief Davis was successful in all areas. Each Chief took the route he believed would be the most effective at making the changes they saw as most important and each went about it differently.
The Berlin Wall was built to separate the Communist east from the Democratic west. This ominous divider was was twelve feet of concrete that stretched for one hundred miles around West Berlin. The infamous symbol of the Cold War was guarded by electric fences and guard posts stationed along it. This boundary was built in 1961 and fell in 1990, after a decree was put into place by the East Germans to open the wall in 1989. Ronald Reagan’s speech “Tear Down this Wall” was one of the events that lead to the destruction of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War era. This speech took place on the edge of the berlin Wall on the seven hundred fiftieth anniversary of Berlin and was directed towards anyone who was listening and affected by the separation the wall caused. The speech given by Ronald Reagan on June 12, 1987 is memorable because of the use of logos and pathos throughout the entire speech.
Situation: As a patrol officer, I am only doing my job when I stop a car for running a red light. Unfortunately, the driver of the car happens to be the mayor. I give her a ticket anyway, but the next morning I get a call into the captain’s office and told in no uncertain terms that I screwed up, for there is an informal policy extending “Courtesy” to city politicians. Several nights later, I observe the mayor’s car weaving erratically across lanes and speeding. What would you do? What if the driver were a fellow police officer? What if it were a high school friend?
Fences is a play written by the playwright August Wilson, who dedicated himself to writing plays capturing what it was like to be an African American in the United States during every decade of the 20th century. Fences was a play that was specifically written to provide an outlook into the lives of African Americans in America during the 1950s, during the process of demarginalization. Each character of the novel provides a unique perspective to capture different aspects of the “African American Experience” during this time period. In Fences, it was very important to August Wilson to truly capture “The African American Experience” and he was able to do so through the portrayal of the Maxson family, with his representation of African Americans during the 1950s in Fences, and with the multiple perspectives of African Americans captured
