No matter how hard the government tried to put an end to the concerns that were rising about Rocky Flats, the Arvada community exposed the governments lies about how there was “no critical danger.” People such as Dr. Edward Martell and Dr. Carl Jonson put out the truth about Rocky Flats and the lethal radiation levels that people in the Arvada community have been exposed to. Soon after, thousands of protestors were ready to fight against the government and its secrets. Iversen also took action against the government by writing this story on Rocky Flats.

With cap cuts coming, are the Steelers scouting a new middle linebacker at the combine? As I wrote in one of our past prospect watches, the Steelers could draft a middle linebacker in the mid-round of this year’s draft. Lawrence Timmons is owed over $15 million and his production has slipped over the past few seasons. One of the most decorated middle linebackers in this draft is Scooby Wright out of Arizona.
The shooting of a Cache County Jail inmate that one Cache official said was an “uncomplicated case” which would only take a couple of weeks to complete is now in its fourth week. Details are still sparse concerning the Jan. 16 shooting that hospitalized an inmate who was shot will a non-lethal weapon. “He was not shot with a firearm but I can’t go into a lot of details,” said Lt. Doyle Peck, of the Cache County Sheriff’s Office. “It was a less lethal option, it was not life threatening in any way and he was given medical attention.” Cache County Sheriff’s Office chief deputy, Matt Bilodeau, said Peck’s two-week estimate was optimistic.

The Pinkertons surrendered, but as the workers left the town, they were beaten in the streets. The mill opened up shortly after. One of the sources Gillon used was David Demarest Jr.’s “The River Ran Red”. It tells the story of the Homestead Strike using newspapers, poems, and first-hand accounts of the event. It supports Gillon’s argument by showing the voices of the people involved.
James Otis had written a document “the rights of the British colonies” after parliament had passed the sugar act in 1761.Otis argued that it is the people that give power to the government. Otis also argued that if a government is found “incorrigible” , the “government should be disposed by the people.” Otis also argued that parliament deprives the colonists of their most essential rights as free man because of all the taxes parliament was enacting. But Otis did believe that “parliament has the authority to make laws for the general good of the colonies.”

In today’s society, we have former National Football League(NFL) quarterback Collin Kapernick who’s no longer in the NFL because of his protest against racial inequality. However, many people believe he is no longer in the NFL because of his talent. Kapernick led the 49ers to Super Bowl 47. Although they didn’t win, he threw for 302 yards with a touchdown and rushed for 62 yards. Therefore, he didn’t get kicked out of the league because he wasn’t good enough, but for sitting down during the national anthem.
My favorite sentence from this reading had to be, "The arms were in sad shape, because everybody was always sitting on them, but they were pretty comfortable chairs." (Salinger 18). In the short sentence, I furthermore get a glimpse of Holden's voice and personality, this time by seeing him contradict himself. He describes how sad looking and beat up the chair is, yet goes on to say how nice and comfortable it is. This to me is a very important clue to Holden's overall personality in regard to life.

She started working on her family’s cattle ranch when she was five. Her family doesn’t use ATV’s or Rangers to check fence and cows, no, they use horses.
In general, I don’t believe that juveniles can be born evil or bad. Environmental factors carry a lot of weight when it comes to how children develop and grow into adults. However, in the uniquely gritty case of Willie Bosket, I believe it’s safe to say that if there were ever a case of a child being “born bad”, then Willie definitely meets the mark. When looking back at his lengthy family history filled with extreme deviance and outright violence, you can quite easily see that Willie fits right into the mold that was created long before he was even born. I think that a lot of Willie’s violent and criminal tendencies were learned from what he was exposed to while growing up.
1. The first argument of the petitioner is that all free slaves in the state of South Carolina should be sent out and forbidden from returning, because their presents would be influential to slave’s and caused an uprising in order to gain their freedom.

Chris McCandless was in his early 20’s, he was the kind of that guy that wanted to learn and experience life without all of the material things. He wanted to be independent from his parents and friends so Chris did something that would be insane for most of us humans but to him, it wasn’t. He went into the wild of Alaska for months, in fact, McCandless even thought he could make it out alive at the end of his journey. As a matter of fact, he was known as being a risk taker and enjoyed being out and about in the nature side of the world. Many would believe that Chris McCandless went into the wild to purposely kill himself; however, I myself believe that McCandless did not do it purposely.
People rebel when no justice being served. It is understandable why people act a certain way. Have you ever loved someone more than yourself? A person is your biggest pride and joy to be safe? Can you imagine how it feels to no longer have your pride and joy with in a split second, due to the way they look?
Traveling hundreds of thousands of miles through dangerous paths American pioneers took on hardships as they sought westward in hopes of a better life. The journey westward began in the early 1800s when the US exploded with new territory’s nearly tripling the US’s size. It all started in 1803 when the US bought the Louisiana Territory from France. Quickly, many farmers picked up their belongings and headed out west to the rich, fertile land for a fresh start. Next, Andrew Jackson invaded Florida claiming it for the US which was also another opportunity for settlers to begin a new life.
