[edit]History

On June 28, 1820, Oakland County was divided into two townships: Pontiac Township and Bloomfield Township, the latter covering the southern part of the county that would include West Bloomfield Township, Royal Oak and Southfield. What is now Bloomfield Hills was a farming area until the turn of the 20th century when wealthy Detroit residents bought up the land. The settlement became a village in 1927, and in 1932 residents voted to become a city to avoid being incorporated into growing Birmingham.
The origin of the name "Bloomfield" is uncertain. Bloomfield Hills' former names were "Bagley's Corners", after early settler Amasa Bagley, and "Circle City."
[edit]Education

Bloomfield Hills is home to the Cranbrook Academy of Art, one of the nation's leading graduate schools of architecture, art and design. It was founded by the Booths in 1932. By 1984, the New York Times would say that "the effect of Cranbrook and its graduates and faculty on the physical environment of this country has been profound ... Cranbrook, surely more than any other institution, has a right to think of itself as synonymous with contemporary American design."
The city is served by the Bloomfield Hills School District, a public school district. The library was renovated in 2009. The district operates the International Academy, a tuition-free, public consortium high school which offers the IB Diploma Program and is consistently rated by Newsweek magazine among the top ten public high schools in the United States.
There are now four elementary schools in the district: Lone Pine Elementary, Way Elementary, Conant Elementary, and Eastover Elementary. Pine Lake and Hickory Grove were consolidated into the remaining four schools for the 2009-2010 school year. There are three middle schools in the district: Bloomfield Hills Middle School, West Hills Middle School and East Hills Middle School.
The district runs two main high schools, Andover High School whose mascot is the Baron, and Lahser High School whose mascot is the Knight. The district also offers a Model High School which is run out of what used to be Hickory Grove, and the Bowers Academy, an alternative high school which is located at the Charles L. Bowers Farm. In 2010, the Bloomfield Hills School Board began discussing more strenuously a move to merge Andover and Lahser High schools and build a new high school that would reside on Andover's grounds. Much debate has surrounded the school board's thoughts on the project, and many local residents have asserted at school board meetings and in local news affiliates that the proposed consolidation is fiscally irresponsible and under-researched. Others have stated that the community needs a new building for the current dated high schools and that it is the fiscally prudent direction the district needs. The plan includes provisions for Lahser's athletic facilities to be kept for use by the new high school.[9][10][11]
The Wing Lake Developmental Center, located in Bloomfield Township, is operated by the school district for special education for southeastern Oakland County.
Bloomfield Hills is also home to many private schools. These include the nonsectarian Cranbrook Schools, the Academy of the Sacred Heart, The Roeper School, and St. Hugo of the Hills Catholic School. The neighboring communities of Bloomfield Township and Beverly Hills have two single-sex Catholic schools: Brother Rice High School for boys and Marian High School for girls, as well as a private college-preparatory school, Detroit Country Day School.

This article stated that Jane Martin, whose name is a pseudonym, mainly writes plays that deal with feminist issues, but recently, she has expanded her writing to include a wider range of social issues, including child abuse and satire about the theater world. Her specific play, Beauty, conveys the theme of jealousy and delves into the idea of what beauty really is, in addition to the topic of how people search for happiness. (para. 1) 3. Firstly, this critic's discussion of Jane Martin's usage of plots that deal with wide ranges of social issues can provide context about her social views when she wrote her play, Beauty. Since she mainly writes about social issues, this source can be used as a reference point, enhancing my own views in my thesis concerning the theme of the play, as well as strengthening her stance on certain issues. Secondly, this source shows the development of her writing, expanding from just feminist issues to a much broader spectrum of issues, as in her play, Beauty. She broadens her views and writes about jealousy, the idea of real beauty, and humanity's search for true happiness. Lastly, this source can provide background...

The Old Man and the Sea

...Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), born in Oak Park, Illinois, started his career as a writer in a newspaper office in Kansas City at the age of seventeen. After the United States entered the First World War, he joined a volunteer ambulance unit in the Italian army. Serving at the front, he was wounded, was decorated by the Italian Government, and spent considerable time in hospitals. After his return to the United States, he became a reporter for Canadian and American newspapers and was soon sent back to Europe to cover such events as the Greek Revolution. During the twenties, Hemingway became a member of the group of expatriate Americans in Paris, which he described in his first important work, The Sun Also Rises (1926). Equally successful was A Farewell to Arms (1929), the study of an American ambulance officer's disillusionment in the war and his role as a deserter. Hemingway used his experiences as a reporter during the civil war in Spain as the background for his most ambitious novel, For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940). Among his later works, the most outstanding is the short novel, The Old Man and the Sea (1952), the story of an old fisherman's journey, his long and lonely struggle with a fish and the sea, and his victory in defeat. Hemingway - himself a great sportsman - liked to portray soldiers, hunters, bullfighters - tough, at times primitive people whose courage and honesty are set against the brutal ways of modern society, and who in this confrontation lose hope......

Flint Water Crisis Analysis

Bank

...Research Paper No. 2006/54 Central Banks as Agents of Economic Development Gerald Epstein* May 2006 Abstract In the last two decades, there has been a global sea change in the theory and practice of central banking. The currently dominant ‘best practice’ approach to central banking consists of the following: (1) central bank independence (2) a focus on inflation fighting (including adopting formal ‘inflation targeting’) and (3) the use of indirect methods of monetary policy (that is, short-term interest rates as opposed to direct methods such as credit ceilings). This paper argues that this neo-liberal approach to central banking is highly idiosyncratic in that, as a package, it is dramatically different from the historically dominant theory and practice of central banking, not only in the developing world, but, notably, in the now developed countries themselves. Throughout the early and recent history of central banking in the US, England, Europe, and elsewhere, financing governments, managing exchange rates, and supporting economic sectors by using ‘direct methods’ of intervention have been among the most important tasks of central banking and, indeed, in many cases, were among the reasons for their existence. The neo-liberal central bank policy package, then, is drastically out of step with the history and dominant practice of central banking throughout most of its history.
