Wall Street

...No one argues that Wall Street needs reforms after the financial debacle of 2008. But then it has always needed reforming, because it has been in a constant state of evolution for 218 years. And most of that reform was accomplished by Wall Street itself, not government. In the early days of Wall Street the trading that took place there was so limited that little regulation was needed. On Mar. 16, 1830, the New York Stock and Exchange Board--as the New York Stock Exchange was then called--traded a grand total of 31 shares. But the Civil War changed everything. As the national debt soared from $65 million to $2.7 billion, and as the economy expanded enormously to meet wartime needs, Wall Street exploded in size. By 1865 it was second only to London. But regulation was almost nonexistent. New exchanges had sprung to meet the hugely increased trading, and the curb market operated on Broad Street with no regulation whatever. Worse, New York state and city governments were utterly corrupt; an English magazine of the time reported that "in New York there is a custom among litigants as peculiar to that city, it is to be hoped, as it is supreme within it, of retaining a judge as well as a lawyer." When Cornelius Vanderbilt tried to buy enough common stock in the Erie Railway to control the company, members of the Erie board just started printing more and more of it. "If this printing press don't break down," one of the directors said, "I'll be damned if I don't give the old hog...

Berlin Wall

...7. Berlin Wall What made people fight for change and press the German/German wall to fall down in 1989? How did it effect the lives of West and East Germans? Are East Germans more free now? How would you explain the reasons for the phenomen of "Ostalgia" (people longing back to the former DDR) that is nowadays living in Eastern Germany? Why did I choose this topic? I think it is very interesting that after twenty years there are still so many problems with East Germany. Why there still is a higher unemployment rate in East Germany than in West Germany, and why people want to go back to the time of the Berlin wall (ostalgia). The fall of the Berlin wall influent the lives of the West and East Germans both on different ways where the East Germans got freedom what they never had before and West Germans got influence of new people of a new culture. But how can effect this still after 20 years? Why is there still such a difference between East and West, did not the western people though to easily that the East Germans will assimilate easy, did the East Germans got the time and the chance to build up a new life in reunited Germany? All those problems I think is very interesting, how people think and act. Proposition: They should never built a new Berlin wall, nobody will end happy than. You can understand on some way that people want to go back in time, because of the good things: education, health care. But the people forget that there was also the Stasi. East...

Western Wall

...Jorge caballer Judaism Western Wall What is the Western wall? It is the holiest Jewish places you can encounter. The Western Wall is also named “Walling Wall”. This beautiful site was built by King Herod in 20 BC. A historian named Josephus explained that the constructions of the walls took around 11 years to build. He explained that around those years it only rained during night in Jerusalem, and it didn’t get between the workers progress. “In 70 AD, the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and its Temple. During the Ottoman Period (beginning in the 16th century), The wall became the Jews’ chief place of pilgrimage, where they came to lament the destruction of the Temple” (1). “For centuries, the Western Wall was located in a narrow alley just 12 feet wide that could accommodate only a few hundred densely packed worshipers. But in 1967, immediately after the Six Day War, Israelis leveled the neighboring Arab district to create the Western Wall Plaza, which can accommodate tens of thousands of pilgrims”(1). Israelis started to dig deeper in the ground to make the wall about 6 ½ feet higher. “The huge, lower stones (ashlars) of the wall are from the time of Herod, while those higher up date from Omayyad and Fatimid times. The sides of the Herodian monumental ashlars have been carved with such precision that they rest perfectly against and on top of each other, without mortar. Over the...

Occupy Wall

... Running Head: Occupy Wall Street Movement Occupy Wall Street By: Barbara Manley Business 309 Professor: Dr. Badowski January 29, 2013 Running Head: Occupy Wall Street Movement 1 Occupy Wall Street Movement The Occupy Wall Street Movement came about in September of 2011. This was a movement about corporate money ant the influences it has on the politics. Many supported this movement because they felt that politics” supported corporate greed, as well as financial and social inequality.” (Haidt, 2012). One moral view of this was focused on democracy, which must were lead to believe was controlled mostly money and not the people which is what a democracy is supposed to be focused on. Those who supported (OWS) Occupy Wall Street believed that if there was to be a change made in the country the focus must took of the money and placed back on the resources our country has to offer. This movement set out prove that we were throwing money at the issues and problems instead of really dealing with them and finding ways to fix them. Occupy Wall Street also brought out that America wasn’t setting an example of a united nation but that of a nation controlled by politics and money The (OWS) showed how more money was being spent on the military which many questions if this was really of necessity. Occupy Wall Street also places some of it focus on the nature, they showed that although we talking about preserving our world we continued to use harmful chemicals and drill. (Lakeoff, 2012...

Wall-E

...Mario Gonzalez Professor Stamp English 1B 16 March 2014 Wall-e We as humans have the ability to live our own lives without the use of constant technology. Even so we have become dependent on it to live our daily lives. Less than a century ago we lived without being so dependent upon technology and we can again. Not to say that we should abandon technology completely but we have become entirely too dependent. In the Pixar movie “Wall-e”, humans have destroyed the planet due to their lack of care for the environment. They then are regrettably forced into living in space on a ship called the Axiom because the planet is inhabitable. Wall-e is just one of many robots who have been created to help clean up the planet. The people on this ship have everything given to them and have no intentions of returning to Earth anytime soon. Although the movie does take the extreme route, it is a good depiction of how we are becoming more and more reliant on technology which could prove to be detrimental . In Wall-e every aspect of humans lives on the Axiom are consumed by technology. It tells them what to do and when to do it. They are waited on by the robots so that they don’t even have to walk or get up from their chairs at all. Their screens block themselves from the outside world and what is going on around them. They are sucked into their technology so much so that they have almost lost any contact with other humans at all. Even the simplest of tasks are done for them such as...

Wall Street

...Wall Street It seems ironic that this film was set in the early 1980’s which was the same time that I was working for a privately owned Fortune 500 company. I gained a lot of experience with this company by learning how to handle different situations that would arise, but mostly how to work with a diversity of personalities. Both Fox and Gekko quoted “it’s another dog with fleas” and that reminded me of my feelings during this tenure of employment which was ‘it’s a dog eat dog world.” Our firm had a group of headhunters that would scour the colleges to bring new talent into the company. Every year we would receive a group of sales trainees and they would work in various departments learning the business from the bottom up. We were privileged to host these young men (there was never a female trainee at that time) for a period of six weeks. Many would start the program ready to tackle the world. They were aware of the fact that “if you do good, you get perks.” These perks could include that “corner office with a view” or a prime sales territory. Any advantage the trainees could achieve over one another worked to the benefit. It was apparent that there was indeed “trench warfare out there.” As I would work with these young men, who were often the same age as myself, I could sense an undertone of greed. Hey had but one goal, and that was to succeed in the company. There were two young men that really caught my attention and I feel helped to mold me into the...

The Berlin Wall

...HIST-410 | The Berlin Wall | [Type the document subtitle] | | Alina Nazar | 12/4/2014 | | The fall of the Berlin Wall has triggered much controversy and plays a major part in the shaping of the modern political ideology and beliefs. The specific date of the descent of the Berlin encasement wall was the 10th of November, 1989. The wall took 3 hours to fall and between 125-206 people died trying to cross the wall. There were many tourists participating who could hire axes to hit the wall and contribute to the atmosphere. The fall of the Berlin Wall occurred when the people of East Berlin had had enough. The fall of the Berlin Wall also marked the end of the Cold War and the beginning of a new life for the Germans. Border crossing points all along the wall were opened to anyone who wanted to cross on 9 November 1989 which ended the conclusion of an international press conference in East Berlin when greater freedom of travel was announced for people of the German Democratic Republic. The fall of the Berlin Wall was a key movement in the history of Europe as it was the symbol of the end of the Cold War. The European Union and NATO were able to expand in pace when Europe was no longer divided into East and West. The power in the world changed when the Cold War ended. A truce between the nuclear threats of two superpowers the USA and the Soviet Union was created as soon as the Berlin Wall fell also preventing both superpowers from dominating the world...

Wall-E

...WALL-E Approximately seven hundred years in the future, the Earth is over-run with garbage and devoid of plant and animal life, the consequence of years of environmental degradation and thoughtless consumerism. The surviving humans are living on the spaceship Axiom after vacating Earth centuries earlier. Axiom is operated by a large corporation called Buy N Large, whose BnL logo appears even on the artificial sun visible from the ship's main concourse. The original plan was for humans to live in outer space for 5 years while cleaning robots ("WALL-Es" invented by Professor Simon) prepared Earth for recolonization. However, after seven hundred years, only one WALL-E (voice: Ben Burtt) remains. WALL-E spends his days compacting debris into solid blocks and building structures with them. He also collects some of the more interesting artifacts and keeps them in the garage he shares with a cockroach, his only friend. At night he watches Hello Dolly on VHS and dreams of having a hand to hold. Most of his finds are spare parts and electronics but one day he discovers a lonely plant. Not sure what it is, but recognizing that it needs soil and care, he picks it up and puts it in a dirt-filled old shoe. The next day, an enormous spaceship lands and deposits another robot, EVE (Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator, voice: Elissa Knight). WALL-E is immediately smitten and hopes to hold her hand, but EVE is quick to use her plasma cannon, which can blast a hole through anything...

Atlantic Wall

...Atlantic Wall During WWII, the German’s created incredible feats of engineering that still stand today. One of the greatest pieces of engineering that can be seen today is Hitler’s Atlantic Wall. Although the entire wall is not still standing many of its heavily armored fortifications are still able to be seen today. Ultimately the project was a failure but it still parts of it stand today. This enormous project began in 1942. “After the invasion and subsequent fall of France in 1940, the German army controlled the entire coast of Northern France” (Williams, Brian). Then followed by the evacuation of Dunkirk the Germans had control of the entire French coast line. This means that something had to be planned and built in order to protect the main land from the Allies. On March 23, 1942 the order was given to start building a wall starting with bunkers to be built in key location and a wall over less important areas of coast line. “In the In barely two years it consumed more than 17 million cubic meters of concrete, depriving Hitler’s armaments factories of more than a million metric tons of iron” (Ruthven, Malise). The key areas that required heavy fortification were areas near ports. This was to provide support for the German U-boats which were most vulnerable when entering and leaving their ports. Hitler was sure that the Allies would attack and try and take over a port as a strong hold first. This...

The Wall

...Corinne Lafalmme-Wathey Professor Keough Critical Writing 120 3 March 2015 “America at War Paper 2” In Jean-Paul Sartre’s “The Wall” there are the five stages of death demonstrated to the audience through what Juan, Tom and Pablo are experiencing. The five stages of death are as follows: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. The main reason for all their actions and the ways in which they are reacting to the situation are based around fear. We are able to distinguish a slight difference between the two Tom and Pablo and the young child, Juan. Pablo and Tom’s main fear is concentrated on the physical and emotional pain and suffering that will come from being executed, while Juan simply remains cornered in the cell, in an emotionless state one could say, because he is being executed for something he is not responsible for. Sartre provides his readers with a great deal of detail about the emotions and physical reactions that the three experience as it gets closer to the morning of their execution. Along with the feeling of fear, there are many more ways in which the three respond to such a traumatizing situation. The first stage of death is known as denial. It is clearly shown in the beginning of the night that the three of them are unable to accept the fact that they have been sentenced to death and even more so that little Juan has been as well. It is naturally a hard notion to grasp for the mind and the body of someone who is currently alive...

Wall Street

...Wall Street Is greed a good or bad thing? People have different opinions about it. Some like it and some do not, some of them thinks that it is the right way to get rich and some thinks that it is the worst thing that can help you get rich. If you ask me, I would say that it is good but if you have limit in it. If you do not have limit, then it creates a problem. Wall Street is the movie which has a lot of impact on my opinion about greed and the way people use it in life. Today, in the United States the research from 2012 says that there is more distinction between rich and poor and that richer people are greedier. The highlight of the movie Wall Street is that the “Greed is good” speech by Gordon Gekko. Greed is not always good or bad. Greed is the excessive desire for more than is needed or deserved, not for the greater good but for one’s own selfish interest, and at the detriment of others and society at large. Throughout our short life, the idea of our mortality makes us question ourselves. Not only that, but it conflicts with our strong survival instincts, giving rise to anxiety about our purpose, meaning, and value. It happens that our culture or lack of it is in a state of flux and crisis; places a high value on materialism, and greed. Our culture’s emphasis on greed is such that people have become immune to satisfaction. Having acquired one thing, they are immediately ready to desire the next thing that might suggest itself. Today, the object of desire is no...

Berlin Wall

...Once the proud capital of Germany Berlin was divided by a barrier that was patrolled day and night by armed soldiers and guard dogs. On August 13, 1961 shortly after midnight police and soldiers in the Communist controlled Berlin moved quickly to set up barriers. Berliners woke to find their city divided into east and west sectors. A communist nation led by the Soviet Union was in control of East Berlin. While West Berlin was controlled by a democratic nation led by the United States (Epler, 1992). The Berlin Wall known as Berliner Mauer in German (Rosenberg, 2016). It was a symbol of the Cold War. Trying to cross the Wall meant risking one’s life. One side of the Wall people were free to do all the normal things. While the other side of the wall people’s freedom was being taken away. Imagine that your best friend lives a mile away. You have been pals since first grade. You do everything together: school, soccer games, sleepovers. One day, men come and put up a barbed-wire fence between your house and your buddy’s house. Later, they replace it with a very long, very tall concrete wall. Each slab weighs 6,000 pounds, and many of them are topped with sharp wire. When they finish, you stare at the giant wall that has split your home town in two. On your side the wall is ugly but not too scary. On the other side, rattling tanks, soldiers with machine guns and growling dogs keep people from trying to cross the barrier. The wall stands 12 feet high. Your...

Shane

...Shane by Angela Day “Shane” is a screenplay that was based on Jack Schaefer's 1949 book of the same name. The film is a classic western tale which is a very familiar and highly regarded in the western genre and the most successful Western of the 1950s and it is also a period piece since it is set in the late 1800’s. The film's rich color cinematography captures the beautiful environment of the frontier which was filmed on location in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, with the mountains as a backdrop. The location and the having been filmed in color is effective in telling the story and had it been done in black and white it would have lost some of the visual impact. This film received six Academy Award nominations including “Best Cinematography” and won one for photography. Many films since Shane have paid homage to the film and used a similar plot and theme. The film used technicolored panoramic angles to create a symbolic myth: the age old story of the duel between good and evil, the social conflict (with families, law and order, and homesteaders) the challenges faced in the era which included an implied love connection between Shane and Marion, lawless gunslingers, and a land-dispute conflict between a homesteader and cattle baron, and the coming of age of a young boy. The film is riddled with classic symbols and conflicts from the uprooting of the stubborn stump in the yard, Torrey's murder in the muddy street and his hilltop funeral, and the climactic...
