WEST VIRGINIA — Near the entrance of Logan Middle School is a statue called “The Doughboy” — a World War I soldier carrying a firearm in one hand, and in the other a grenade. The bronze figure is indicative of West Virginia’s gun culture. As is the state flag — which features two firearms — and West Virginia University’s mascot, the musket-toting Mountaineer.
March 4, 1836 Texas has declared independence. Everyone in the mission is celebrating. Being able to see our future has raised our spirits. Though, the celebration was short lived. The man on guard over, Andrew Duvalt, noticed the Mexican army gained about one thousand troops over night.
Life in Vicksburg has grown to be more and more difficult with each passing day. It has been about a month and a half since the Union began the siege and cut off the imports that the people of Vicksburg need to live and thrive. From the shortage of food to the lack of hope, every day has a common theme of despair within Vicksburg’s residents. Both my neighbors and I feel weak without proper nourishment from healthy food and clean water, but worst of all, we are unsure of how much longer this living nightmare will continue. I now feel obligated to change the way I have been living by, with great regret, deciding to surrender to the Union army.
During Dred Scott vs. Sanford (1856), Chief Justice Taney stated that “The words “people of the United States” and “citizens” are synonymous terms” and “The question before us is, whether the [people of African ancestry] compose a portion of this people.” He answered his own question with “We think they are not, and that they are not included, and were not intended to be included, under the word “citizens” in the Constitution.” In 1787, the Constitution was written. “We the People” at the time were elite white males. It didn’t include colored, Natives, women, or impoverished people.
These lands were taken from them in spite of the Fort Laramie treaty signed in 1851 and agreed to by both the Lakota and the U.S. government in which the U.S. government formally recognized Lakota ownership of the Black Hills and the surrounding area as well as allocating to the Sioux almost all of the present states of South Dakota and Nebraska, along with portions of North Dakota, Kansas, Montana, and Wyoming. This treaty was shortly broken by the U.S. upon the discovery of gold and silver in the region, thereby prompting the U.S. government to construct a series of forts along what became known as the Bozeman Trail in order to secure passage through Sioux territory to the nearby mines (Churchill, 1990).
Both Hochschild and Davies claim that the emotional labor of the workers is being exploited by employers to gain a profit, suggesting that the control of emotional labor influences productivity. Hochschild, using the flight attendant as an example, illustrates the negative effects of emotional labor on the job. The worker is told that her smile is her best asset (Hochschild 4). No longer is her smile a true representation of her feelings, it is part of the product being sold to the consumer (Hochschild 4). The smile equals good customer service, which in return grants good ratings and a profit for the company because of the increase in sales (Hochschild 6).
Christopher Columbus Langdell analyzed the scientific method and presumed it to be living, inductive, and classificatory in its prominence. He believed students would obtain growth by combining experiences of the word with their legal education. In addition, he believed that law was a science that could be minimized to principles rooted in court decisions which accrued changes over time. Langdell decided to use the case method which explained his teaching mechanisms by using case law and the Socratic Method to educate students in law school. As a result, Langdell implemented that students would use lecture based instruction and casebooks instead of textbooks to better dissect cases and appellate court decisions.
After the cliffhanger season 6 finale, producers have started shooting for the seventh season of ‘The Walking Dead’ in Georgia. And if reports are to be believed, the team is taking utmost precaution to keep the upcoming storyline and plots under wraps.

Rwanda has been rather well-known for its seemingly effective post-conflict reforms; and Paul Kagame, the leader of the RPF, has been celebrated for his efforts to bring about political stability to the nation. However, underneath this guise, the ruling party has created a police state where all political competition, government dissension and open government criticism is severely punished. While Rwanda is no longer a nation that is known for its vicious ethnic divisions, it is now a nation that can be known for the human rights abuses that the shepherds of peace dish out to the electorate. The stringent conditions that have been put into place, requiring Rwanda to be ethnicity-less, have focused solely on ensuring that negative peace prevails throughout the nation.
A good argument has to fulfill the Logic Condition.

The late 19th century, a period including Reconstruction, the Industrial Era, and “manifest destiny,” was marked by the freeing of slaves, imperialism, immense economic growth, and the rise of big businesses. (pg. 579, pg. 619, pg. 625, pg. 630)
Dr. Bennet Omalu said, “I wish I never met Mike Webster. CTE has driven me into the politics of science, the politics of the NFL. You can’t go against the NFL. They will squash you.” Dr. Bennet is saying the NFL is to powerful and they’re not helping protect their players.
