Report on the Enforcement of the Prohibition Laws of the United States by the National Commission on Law Observance and Enforcement (Wickersham Commission Report on Alcohol Prohibition)
I have signed the report of the Commission, although as is probably inevitable when eleven people of different antecedents and temperaments endeavor to agree upon a contentious subject, it is more or less of a compromise of varying opinions. In so far as it states facts, I believe it to be generally accurate. Every effort has been made to make it so. I should have preferred to have it state more facts and fewer broad generalizations from unstated facts. But the difficulties in securing accurate statistics, owing to the unsystematic and unscientific manner in which they are commonly kept in this country, often makes it impossible to get reliable statements of fact, although there may be sufficient available information to afford a fairly reliable basis of generalization. I am in entire accord with the conclusions "that enforcement of the National Prohibition Act made a bad start which has affected enforcement ever since"; that "it was not until after the Senatorial investigation of 1926 had opened people's eyes to the extent of law breaking and corruption that serious efforts were made" to coordinate "the federal services directly and indirectly engaged in enforcing prohibition," and that not until after the act of 1927 had extended the Civil Service law over the enforcement agents, were there the beginnings of such an organization as might have been expected to command the respect of other services, the courts and the public, and thus secure reasonable observance of the law and enforcement of...

...Funniest Moment It is normal that you almost know everything about your friends. You know her crush, favorite food, artist, song and even her things like clothes, shoes, makeup, gadgets and many other more. You almost know everything about her since you’re always with her. In my part, the funny thing is that I was with my friends that moment. We were sitting in the corridor waiting for our next class. We are all busy doing our things like chatting, reviewing and texting. When the bell rang we are about to enter the room. I was about to stand up when one of my friend, Stephanie, said that “ Uy, yong bag ni Hazel” referring to one of our friend. So thinking that it was hazel’s bag, I was about to carry the bag and give it to hazel because she went to the restroom. But before I was able to pick up the bag, I notice Stephanie is smiling devilishly. So I had the second thought. It was then that Hazel is back, carrying her bag. Then I realize that it was not hazel’s bag after all. It was the bag of the girl sitting beside me. The girl looks at me weirdly. She may have other thought about me picking her bag. I feel ashamed and shocked at the same time, knowing that I might have done such peculiar thing in my life. After realizing the prank that Stephanie has done to me, I ran as fast as I could just to move away from that place. My Family My family is the best that I have. They are my life, my soul and my everything. My mother is the most loving person I have met. My mother is...

...ENRON- A Study of FAILURES Who, How, Why! Arthur Gudikunst, Ph.D. Revised: April, 2003 Professor of Finance Finance Department Bryant College Introduction: The saga of the ENRON Corporation has been unfolding in the media for well over a year. In the span of only three years, ENRON has gone from public and professional acclaim of the company and its senior executives to scorn, infamy and bankruptcy. Its public auditing firm, Arthur Andersen, has basically been destroyed, as well as publicly disgraced. Tens of thousands of employees and investors have been emotionally and financially affected. Major financial services firms in banking, securities brokerage and insurance have been, and may yet be, drawn into the legal battles regarding who is to blame for the ENRON failure. Overview of ENRON: The following timeline for ENRON is presented to set the major milestones for the company: July 1985- Houston Natural Gas merges with InterNorth to form ENRON, as an interstate natural gas pipeline company. Kenneth Lay is CEO. 1989- ENRON starts trading natural gas commodities and commodity derivative financial contracts. 1994- ENRON begins trading electricity as a commodity and related financial derivative contracts. Jeffrey Skilling is executive in charge of this new business venture. Nov. 1999- EnronOnline is launched as a web site for the global trading of energy commodities and derivative contracts.

...Explain the strengths and weaknesses of Natural Law Theory (25 marks) As an absolutist theory, Natural Law is universalisable and proposes objective moral standards. These standards, as they are achieved through reason, are not limited to faith and are not bound by God. This means that the theory is accessible to the non-believer as well. This makes it a more versatile and accessible ethical system. This is a strength as many of the ethical systems including will only work if used by all people and for different reasons theories such as Kant aren’t as versatile meaning this is a more realistic ethical theory for people to use.     Once the Primary Precepts of Preserve Life; Live in Society; Educate the Young; Continue through Reproduction; and Worship God are understood, the theory is very easy to apply and follow.  It is easy to reach conclusions and the theory is quite clear cut in what it believes. However, the theory may come unstuck when one begins picking apart and re-understanding what the precepts mean. This clear cut approach is a strength as the principles are easy to understand and typically would not need to be disputed. One of the flaws of Natural Law theory is the question; do any of the precepts take priority over the others? Does educate the young mean invest in schools? Or encourage independent study? Does preservation of life include abortion and euthanasia? This poses a flaw due to the fact that people will not be sure in terms in conflicts of interested...

The model BMW that they used becomes more popular. Some of the most famous motorcycles at the beginning of the era are Norton and Triumph. The very beginning of Triumph backs us in the late 19th century – 1885 when Siegfried Bettmann who emigrated from Germany to England, Coventry found the company. At that point, the firm was dealing with bicycles and later they started with motorcycles. They received more publicity especially in United States because of a 1950 Thunderbird 6T in the 1953 that was ride by Marlon Brando in The Wild One.

Scene Analysis Paper

...When Your Life’s in the Toilet A person is highly influenced by those around them. Everyone always seems to find a niche and stick with the people in that environment, whether it is a good one or not. Danny Boyle’s 1996 film Trainspotting is a story about a man who is trying to quit drugs, specifically heroin, but is stuck with the wrong crowd of people. His mind in constantly in an acid trip and the film shows us what he sees. The scene in the public bathroom in particular stands out and shows the struggles faced by Mark and his need to get clean through a great narrative style, great Mis-en-Scene, and finally sound; all of which carefully reflects what the character is feeling. The scene is set up directly after the opening of the film where the main character, Mark Renton gives a long dialogue and sets out to find one last hit, or drug use, before quitting heroin cold turkey. He is sorely disappointed when his dealer does not give him heroin, but instead sells him opiate suppositories. As he is walking back home, the opiate suppositories have a severe laxative effect and Mark has to run into a public toilet, known as “the worst toilet in Scotland,” to relieve himself. The words “the worst……in Scotland” are non-diegetic; they are not originally on the door. He goes to the bathroom and does his business but then realizes the drugs he put in his rectum had not dissolved and are now in the toilet. His severe need for drugs is shown when he does not hesitate to reach......
