William Jefferson Clinton

William Jefferson Clinton was born on August 19, 1946, in Hope, Arkansas. His father, William J. Blythe III was killed in an automobile collision just two months before William?s birth. At age four, William Jefferson Blythe IV was legally adopted by his mothers? second husband, Roger Clinton, making him William Jefferson Clinton.

At age 22 William received a Bachelor?s degree from Georgetown University. Just five years later, he received his law degree from Yale.

Soon after graduating from Yale, he became a law professor at the University of Arkansas. He did not stay in one place for long though, and in 1978 he became the Attorney General of Arkansas. From this political position, he moved higher up in the ranks and in 1978 won the election for the gubernatorial seat of Arkansas. In the 1980 elections, however, William (Bill) was defeated by Republican Frank White. As the youngest governor of Arkansas in 40 years, Bill then became the youngest ex-governor in United States history. During the interim, Clinton was hired by the law firm Wright, Lindsey and Jennings. In the 1982 elections, Mr. Clinton went after the position of governor with renewed vigor and defeated incumbent Republican Frank White. During

Poliomyelitis

Poliomyelitis

Poliomyelitis, is a serious infection caused by a virus. In the past, epidemics of polio were common and were greatly feared because the disease left many patients paralyzed for life (Fetzer). In the 1950?s, however, a vaccine against the disease was introduced. Since then, polio has been nearly eliminated in the developed countries.

Kinds of Poliomyelitis

A polio virus may attack the nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord, causing paralysis. However, infection by a polio virus does not always result in severe illness. Some patients show only mild symptoms, such as fever, headache, sore throat, and vomiting. Symptoms may disappear after about a day.
Severe polio attacks begin with the same symptoms as the mild attacks. The symptoms, however, do not disappear. Stiffness of the neck and back develops. The muscles become weak, and movement is difficult.

Executive Decision

Executive Decision

Let me begin simply by stating that I cannot stand Steven Seagal as an actor. Theres something about him and Sylvester Stallone that gets under my skin. With that said, its easy to understand why I was hesitant about watching this movie when Samantha and I were discussing it. Once we started watching, however, I found out that it wasn?t so bad after all. Any movie that kills off Steven Seagal in the first twenty minutes is ok in my book.
Executive Decision is a movie that hits extremely close to home in todays society. The story concerns a 747 airliner hi-jacked between Athens and Washington D.C. Their “plan” is to kill everyone on board unless an Arab terrorist leader is freed from an American prison.
While Dr. Grant, Kurt Russell, is attending a formal government ball, he gets called to the Pentagon situation room. After a briefing of the situation, he is left to analyze a plan of action. He realizes that the terrorists have an extremely legal nerve gas called DC-5 on board. The pieces of the true plan come together and they discover that they are planning a kamikaze mission in which they would detonate the gas

Transition Period Between Bush And Clinton

Transition Period Between Bush And Clinton

The most important challenge of any president-elect is to seize ever advantage or opportunity that presents itself for a smooth transition. During such a window of opportunity, from Election Day to inauguration, the president-elect (Clinton) will build a White House team, select cabinet secretaries, form his agenda, and prepare a budget to present to Congress. Secondly, the president-elect and his White House team must seize the opportunity to communicate between the incoming administration and the outgoing administration. Lastly to complete a smooth transition, the administration must avoid constraining commitments such as false promises that were made during the campaign.

As for the transition between the Bush and Clinton Administrations, it turned out to be one the rockiest transition in recent history. To start the Clinton Administration began by cleaning house, draining the White House of all its experienced personnel and institutional memories. By doing this alone, created several major problems for the newly elected Clinton Administration.

The first major issue to arise would be the lack of appointment of important staff members by president-elect Bill Clinton. It took president-elect Clinton until the middle of December to finally appoint his Chief of Staff, Mack McLarty. With such

Physician Assisted Suicide

Physician Assisted Suicide

Do We Really Have a Right to Die
INTRO
Imagine living with the reality that you have leukemia. Given all the details about chemotherapy and knowing the lengthy, painful process still only gives you a twenty-five percent chance of survival you decide to live out your life as comfortably as possible and refuse treatment. In making this decision you decide that when you inevitably become pain ridden and completely dependant on others you would like to die in peace and no longer suffer. How would you feel if the government told you that you couldn?t do so This is where the debate of physician assisted suicide comes into play. Should a person suffering with a terminal illness be able to be assisted in a humane and comfortable death This question has been argued for many years, laws have been passed then overruled, and many heated debates have started in courtrooms across the country. Some people may think of it as murder or morally wrong to end a life. However some feel it is the most humane thing we can do for
our suffering loved ones. Physician assisted suicide or PAS is defined as: a doctor providing the lethal drugs with which a

A Study of The Naked Gun

A Study of The Naked Gun

In the film ?The Naked Gun? (1988), directed by David Zucker, there are a few different simple editing and sound processes employed. The movie is very coherent in transitions from scene to scene from these postproduction elements. The editing process is quite simple, with no extraordinary cuts that are hard to follow. The sound is done to coordinate events that taking place, and that will take place in future shots. If we can have an understanding of how the film is patterned, through the use of editing and sound, we can draw conclusions as to future events in the movie. Thus, there are many scenes that relate to one another, and you can account for these scenes predictability of events if you follow the editing and sound patterns produced in the opening scene.
To find a pattern in editing and sound we need to understand how the opening scene uses these techniques to coincide with the events taking place. As the scene begins, we have a bird?s eye establishing shot of the city Beirut, where the scene takes place. The music selected is one that comes from that same hemisphere as Beirut is from.

Cuban Missile Crisis

Cuban Missile Crisis

America, the ruthless super of this world has retained that status by means of using their vast economic wealth as well as their strategic manipulation among countries in need of their support. The Cuban Missile Crisis was an act of retaliation by both the Soviet Union and Cuba, to prevent America from having that particular ?strong hold? on their countries. Though both Soviet Union and Cuba had been fueled by different reasons, Soviet Union was tired of being influenced by the ?Westernization? America has promoted and wished to further Communism, and Cuba by the economic suppression and America?s reluctance to better fund the economic development. In any case, it was understandable that both countries tried an attempt to better their positions in this world against America. The reasons why the Cuban Missile Crisis occurred was ultimately the reaction of Soviet Union?s attempt to balance power between Communism and Democracy and the fact that America had missiles place in Turkey aiming at Moscow. As for Cuba, it was a way to be released from America?s economic grasp and further benefit Cuba?s development in both industry and economic development, as well to return a favor to the Soviet

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy

The career that interests me is physical therapy. There are many different aspects to physical therapy. It is, defined as the treatment of physical dysfunction or injury by the use of therapeutic exercise and the application of modalities, intended to restore or facilitate normal function or development.
While doing research for my paper I talked to many people about the field of physical therapy. One woman said that contrary to what all the books say, she thinks that physical therapy isn?t the field of work to get into because it is no longer a high paying career because there are so many therapists. On the other hand, a man that I talked to said that I should get into physical therapy because there is money in the field and that I would enjoy it.
Physical therapy puts to use skills that a person has learned to help someone get better. This aspect of helping others attracts me. In an attempt to learn more about this career, I arranged to do job shadow with Louie Greenwald, a physical therapist at Medical Associates Clinic with many years of experience, had lots to say on the topic.

English Patient

English Patient

What does it matter who speaks” asks Samuel Beckett via Michel
Foucaults essay. “What is an Author” “. . . Am I just a book”
asks the burned Englishman in Michael Ondaatjes novel The English
Patient, in response to Caravaggios attempts to reveal his past
as the cartographer/spy Alma sy. Both questions are germane to
a central tension in the novel: What are the implications (for
texts) of an absent/anonymous narrative creator In this novel,
the issue of “who speaks” is not an innocent one. The English
patient would like, for various reasons, to absolve himself of
authorial responsibility for his narrative. The most apparent
of these reasons is certainly to avoid the repercussions of his
being identified as Alma sy. Yet the “black body” of this “despairing
saint” gives no clue to his identity, and therefore to the “origin”
of the discourse of which he is the source. He is an unreadable
enigma, with “all identification consumed in a fire” (3), whom
the inhabitants of the villa must nonetheless translate into
their own narratives.

This absence of locating identification poses a problem for anyone
who seeks to “read” the English patient in the terms of what
Foucault names in his essay the “Author Function,” which (among
other things) demands that we name the writer in order to understand

MLK

MLK

On August 28, 1963 more than 250,000 civil-rights supporters attended the March on Washington. Addressing the protesters from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous ?I Have a Dream? speech. Profoundly, he proclaimed for a free nation of equality where all race would join together in the effort to achieve common ground. King stated his yearning for all colors to unite and be judged by character, not by race. African Americans would not be satisfied until their desire for freedom from persecution, bitterness, and hatred prevailed. Not only were the points in his speech powerful, but also the delivery he gave was so persuading and real that it changed the hearts of many people across America. By using four artificial proofs, mythos, logos, ethos, and pathos, Martin Luther King was able to open the eyes of people who were blinded by the color of skin. Including cultural legends such as the nations history of justice in his oration, Martin Luther King portrayed a style of mythos. King stated the fact that when our ancestors wrote the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they signed a promissory note that would guarantee the inalienable rights of
