My fascination with cardiovascular instruments began when I attended the National Research Convention in Ottawa. I know then that I wanted to devote my career to developing these instruments. JOANNE: Thank you, that was all very interesting. So, let 's begin to talk about the pacemaker. Why don 't you guys explain what a pacemaker is for those who don 't know?
Hockey arouses Saul’s interest in doing something fulfilling once more. He develops a sense of purpose. The narrator states, “Father Leboutilier brought me hockey books and answered all my questions. His passion for the game was contagious” (Wagamese 58). Thus, hockey gives Saul the chance to start healing emotionally.
Nicholas Flood Davin was a remarkable and brilliant man, who’s legacy will live on. He was distinguished by his erratic behavior through his newspaper, Regina Leader, and his years as a member of the House of Commons.1 After the years of Confederation, he was drawn to the brilliant and merciless life in the Western prairies, where he changed the way of life forever.2 Nicholas Flood Davin’s work to create the Regina Leader, and his research about Residential schools helped to change the future of education, and lives of the citizens of Regina. Born in Ireland in 1839, Davin moved to Toronto when he was 33 years old on an assignment from the Pall Mall Gazette of London, but ended up becoming a freelance writer for the Globe in Toronto.3 In 1882,
This relates to The American Heritage Medical Dictionary’s definition of perseverance which is “the tendency to continue or repeat an act or activity after the cessation of the original stimulus.” (Perseveration) Long after poverty had stimulated the Moore family in Canada to seek a better life in Michigan, Thomas and his family continued to pursue a more prosperous future for themselves and for their children. As found on etymonline, perseverance is from Old French Perseverance, “persistence, endurance,” and directly from Latin perseverantia, “steadfastness, constancy”. These roots of durability and hard work relate to my definition of perseverance, which is the ability to continue towards a goal, despite obstacles that stand in the way. The Moores had a goal—to escape poverty. They didn’t allow anything, even eviction or other adversity, to stand in the way of that goal.
Programs such as the Canadian pension plan, universal health care and student loans, all exist because of Lester B. Pearson. Mr. Pearson wanted to help Canadians by introducing programs that would support them both finically and physically. He proposed the pension plan to aide seniors once they retire, a pension plan provides partial income replacements for seniors who retire at the age of 65. This program was very effective hence it still continues to help seniors around Canada today. After the CPP was introduced Canadian seniors received additional income which helped them improve their living conditions, helped them pay for expenses and overall helped them lead a better life after retirement which was a lot considering the living situations during that that time period.
Newfoundland & Labrador Canada was well shaped after WWII as well as the great depression affected the economy and life was back on track. However, Newfoundland and Labrador’s struggled with much more during those times. On April 1949, Newfoundland and Labrador joined Canada’s confederation as it was the final remnant of the British empire on western shores. This event became an important part of our history since Newfoundland had close ties to trades within the rest of the country. This impacted my family heavily since my father was originally a potato farmer in Ireland.
I would recommend it to anyone wondering about the 1980’s hockey team. The author, Wayne Coffey, made this book in an interesting way. He told the story of the USA-Soviet Union game and also gave background information on some of the players. It was fascinating to learn about the players’ lives before and after the Olympics and how their lives changed. The most important character in this book is the coach, Herb Brooks.

Henry David Thoreau and Transcendentalism Henry David Thoreau was a very prominent Transcendentalist that lived in the mid 1800s. He was introduced to transcendentalism by Ralph Waldo Emerson when they became friends. He was also an abolitionist and very individualistic. He was a schoolteacher for a while and then decided that he wanted to get more in tune with himself. He began to do many odd jobs to pay for his expenses.
“Schools are like munitions factories and ought to be turning out a constant supply of living materiel,” remarked Reverend Percy Kettlewell, former headmaster of St. Andrew’s College in 1913. The following year his words would be met with action. Many boys enlisted, 125 of them died. Against this traumatic past “Then & Now” by Thomas Crutchely and “Etched in Memory” by Andrew Renard emerge as contemporary considerations of the Great War, by poets from St Andrew’s College. Both poems try to reconcile past trauma and grief with existence in the present.
For this, Currie was promoted to lieutenant-general in charge of the Canadian Corps. At forty-one, he was the youngest officer ever to grasp such a rank. The other Allied nations had already lost thousands of men in a sea of blood and mud at the Battle of Passchendaele. Currie was then called in to do what other Allied generals had not been able to, and although he objected and predicted that too many Canadian men would be lost in battle, he eventually agreed. He applied his usual strategies to the situation and once again relied on his engineers to build roads, drain ditches, and even build a railway, all while being fired upon by the Germans.
