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.
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.
Steven Furtick is not justified in building his multi-million-dollar home. His actions alone speak volumes about his inner guilt. Not to mention the many nondisclosure agreements he had members and volunteers sign, using the church to for his own personal gain and not living above reproach. Steven’s response to the reporters questioning him about this home was despicable.
As Washington D.C.’s second oldest town, Tenleytown has grown from a country village to a city neighborhood. Much of this transition involved the gathering of the Tenleytown community to fight crises or advocate for their neighborhood. Tenleytown citizens have fought against the relocation of the black Reno City community, fought for the rightful name of their Metro station, and fought against business and residential real estate development. Tenleytown residents have a shared history that has created a sense of place within their community, because they are willing to take action anytime Tenleytown or the community is threatened.
Skateboarding, Baseball, Red Hot Chili Peppers: these are just a few things Los Angeles has become known for. But just one year after the city of St. Louis was left without an NFL team, San Diego has also fallen into a near identical situation. On January 12th, 2017, the Chargers’ ownership group announced the relocation of the team to Los Angeles. This has given " The City of Angels" their second NFL franchise in as many years. This move has also come as a shock to many NFL fans, myself included.
Longtown Ohio has had races mix freely for the past 200 years. Now people just see someone with a different skin color and think only negatives toward that person. Even if we have freedom of speech and press, that doesn’t mean we can talk about others because of how they look. The world should be free to all, not just a certain skin color. We should be able to interact or go through marriage with other skin colors.

Sam Brownback, the 46th Governor of Kansas, has one goal in mind and that is to make Kansas the best place for families to grow. However, as of now, Brownback is not able to achieve his goal because he had caused a massive state debt due to cutting taxes. These controversial actions can put Kansas in a dark hole. Brownback was elected again by the Kansas citizens in 2014. Sam Brownback should not have been elected again as the Governor of Kansas because he is cutting money for public schooling, he is increasing the tax rate on the lower class and middle class to make up for his debt, and increasing taxes are causing Kansans to flee.
During the Civil War, William Mason Grosvenor had commanded the first unit of blacks soldiers to battle for the North. From a firsthand reconstruction perspective, he saw the state and local governments being lenient towards accepting incoming state governments, such as Louisiana, that made little change in the political and economic status of blacks after the abolition of slavery. He also issued the abeyance theory of reconstruction. According to Grosvenor, the North should enforced their laws onto the South where punishing treason would straighten the “rebels” from being destructive to America and if the Confederates states continues to follow their constitution then America wouldn’t bind into one whole nation. Rebels treason because they feel hopeless.
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.
I am writing to express my concern regarding the visible amount of trash in our neighborhood. The surroundings of Dentonia Park and all the way to the Golf Club are filled with pieces of paper, cans, broken toys, packages and all the sort of unwanted objects on the grass, ruining the pleasant experience of walking in the park with the children. It is a duty of each citizen to preserve the city and it is not excusable to throw away garbage on the streets, however, a few measures could serve as friendly reminders of a person’s obligation. There is a lack of garbage bins in the park and on the sidewalks and this could be one of the reasons of why people are disrespecting the environment. If there is plenty of places to dispose the garbage properly,
Twelfth Night Research Project: The Letter Trick Part One: Suzanne Penuel described a great underlying influence of Shakespeare’s text, Twelfth Night by drawing multiple connections between various conversation and overlapping themes in her essay, “Missing Fathers: Twelfth Night and the Reformation of Mourning.” Many implications tied to the role of fatherhood were explored including rank (social status), procreation and a necessity for a man to be included for life to be physically reproduced, morality and its biological relationship to genetic implications of such a trait to be inherited, maturing and developing relationally (both when and how), the connection between paternal figures in a familial aspect and religious (specifically in regards to mournig), and the influence on various relationships as a father’s role (or absence) is a determining factor of developing a worldview. The main argument was Shakespeare’s
Have you ever received an invitation to show up for an event which you did not want to attend? Did the nudging feeling of a guilty conscience and obligation eventually prevail and so the next thing you know you find yourself lapping up a postage and mailing out your yes answer? On the day of the event, you still don 't want to go, but you already said you would so now it 's a matter of respect and responsibility. Ultimately, you decide to change your attitude since you have taken the time to shower, get dressed, and throw on some smell good. You determine that after going through all of the trouble to meet an obligation, you may as well do the best you can to have a swell time while you are in there.
