The New Deal was a turning point because it led to the creation of the Welfare-State (creation of jobs for the millions of unemployed), which represented a major change in the responsibilities of the federal government. Another concern of the Welfare State was making sure people didn't lose their homes (HOLC). Loans were provided to people in danger of loosing their homes. Before this there was no social security and no unemployment benefits. However, with the New Deal in place there was unemployment benefits and creation of jobs through the CCC and WPA and The Social Security Act.
Birth of Airlines In 1930, the Congress passed the McNary-Watres Act as an amendment to the Keely Act. Under the new act the contractors would be paid according to the available cargo space and in addition, a bonus would be paid to the operators flying multi engine aircraft equipped with latest instruments. This was clearly an incentive provided by the government for the operators to fly larger aircraft which can carry passengers as well as mail. The new act also authorised Postmaster General to extend or combined airmail routes. With the effect of the McNary-Watres Act on aviation, United Airlines contracted with Boeing Aircraft in Seattle to build a modern two-engine airplane which in 1932 Boeing brought out model 247, a twin-engine, all
The invention of the airplane would indisputably change the world forever. Its long term effects on our society are nearly unmeasurable but one of the many problems the airplane produced is a connected world. People who could never get across the country now want to do so. The airplane was the gateway to an over consuming and over polluting world. Carter explains that mid 70’s pollution control policies shocked the transportation market and the people.
Like Jackie Robinson and Melba Pattillo Beals, Feng Ru helped improve his home country, China, when he was motivated by the United States’s industrialization to build a plane and make a similar impact on China. Feng Ru was also challenged, but unlike Robinson and Beals, his challenges came as long hours, bad working conditions, natural disasters, and the risk of death when testing planes. In paragraph six of the article about him, Maksel states, “Jammed into this small space were tools, books, journals, mechanical projects, aircraft parts—and Feng himself, who rarely finished work before 3 a.m.” This quote explains some of the conditions Feng Ru was challenged by, such as small spaces. This is also shows in paragraph seven, where the article states, “During one test flight, Feng lost control of his airplane (not an unusual occurrence), which plunged into his workshop, setting it ablaze.” This quote shows that crashing planes was not unusual, which brought a lot of risk, as Feng Ru could have gotten killed or severely injured in these crashes. Through these events, Feng Ru gained knowledge of aviation
At the time he was working for an aviation underwriter but he was not satisfied with this being his life. He began selling batteries to local service stations creating a system unlike any other supplier. Searcy became a pioneer offering batteries on consignment, battery recycling inventory management and of course wholesaling batteries, which was much more than what any other supplier had been doing at the time. Interstate Battery Systems, now known as Interstate Batteries, was formed in 1952 in the Dallas/Ft Worth area (The Current publication). He named the company after one of President Eisenhower’s greatest accomplishments, the new interstate road system (Web US).
The initial plane builds were primitive and didn 't have some of the modern day functions we believe a plane has, Both sides of the war were trying to design planes that could hold heavy weapons like bombs or machine guns, By mid-1915, the infantries were already getting some entertainment by watching dogfights in the skies, and airplanes became significant factor in success in the second half of the world war one. Innovations in aeronautics were made after ww1 and those innovations would be seen in full view during ww2 and beyond. today the effects of airplanes in ww1 are ubiquitous and helped further our
One of the most amazing machines that was created during the Industrial Revolution is The Spinning Jenny. It was made because of Blackburn Greys, That was a linen cloth that was usually shipped to London. When people started to love them, they had trouble keeping up with the demand. So they made the Flying Shuttle, It made them twice as fast as before. Then, again they could supply the demand, they had to keep trying to make them faster.
The building and development of the railroad in all parts of the country were one of the most remarkable developments of the Industrial Revolution. With its creation and active operation, they brought significant change to the economy, society and the political world.The first railroads were built in Great Britain. America got the idea to construct them at home when they visited England and saw the impressive drop of shipping costs when it was done by railroads instead of by carriage, nearly a 60%-70% decrease. The first railroads in America were extremely successful. However, attempts to finance new ones failed at first because of the opposition that was created by stagecoach companies, canal companies, turnpike operators and many inkeepers
In addition to Racism being one of the few attributes to the outside influences throughout the novel, economic crisis and the 1st and 2nd New Deal play a big part in it as well. In the 1920s and 1930s, new machinery became available. Many automobiles and airplanes introduce the 1920s and 1930s into a new era. Upon the arrival of such machinery people would oftentimes not have the money to purchase machines or appliances right then and there; the demand for products caused the banks to allow credit. Credit made it possible for people to buy now and pay later.
Another victory Hoover had as President was that he really did try to get the country out of the Great Depression. Hoover wanted the federal government to be involved with trying to solve the Great Depression. Although the result of the Great Depression did not go in favor of Hoover, he did try to improve the situation by making changes which ultimately made the situation even worse. One defeat Hoover had as President was the signing of the smoot-hawley tariff. Hoover signed the tariff so he could get more money from other countries.
For Feng Ru it was always a life or death situation. Not only that Feng had to fly in secret. Maksel said,” At twilight on tuesday evening Feng Ru prepared to test fly his own invention of an airplane.” Feng Ru on one of his practices the plane actually flew, but later crashed. So feng Ru learned by reading about the Wright Brothers on how he can improve his plane. “Upon hearing of the Wright Brothers success, Fang Ru turned his attention to aviation.” (Maksel) Feng Ru tried to make his plane safe when they flew.
