The cotton gin helped produce a large cash flow along with manual labor jobs. Prior to the cotton gin slave trade was done most by the New England colonies, this was called “Triangle Trade”.

Most people in Pennsylvania were against slavery due to a moral stand, while the upper and middle colonies did not contribute to the slave market. While on the other hand in the south the use of slaves continued to thrive for labor plantations as well as creating a group in which the poorest of whites could turn their noses up at. A small group of religious and moral causes began the Abolition Movement. Nevertheless they took to the north as a political group with federal powers. In the 1800’s efforts were curved too avoid the issues of slavery altogether such as Henry Clay’s compromises attempting to delay conflict, which quickly deteriorated after......

...Timeline 1 1) Describe three different American Indian cultures prior to colonization. Pre-history to 1600s The Hopewell tribe was mound builders that were located in the Midwest and even today their mounds can be seen in the states where they resided, such as Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin and more. They could be considered some of the first traders in the region as they had a very large trade route, with materials coming from across other portions of the United States and Canada. The climate was the reason for this tribe’s decline rather than the colonists that arrived to the New World. The Iroquois were located in what is now the state of New York. This was actually a group of tribes that were united under a league that had been established by a political alliance after tribal warring. Their system of government with chosen leaders called sachems is considered the model for which the American government is currently built upon. The Haidas was a tribe that was located in the Northwest Pacific Coast across the country far from where the colonists first landed. This tribe being so close to the ocean, centered more of tribal life around the waters. They were fishermen and artists. This is one of the tribes that created totem poles that many individuals associate with Native American culture today. 2) The effects of British colonization on the Native Americans. 1600’s The British colonization on the Native Americans had a...

The firs wave included the legislations by the states of laetrile on the cancer drug that was found to be ineffective. The second wave involved the medical marijuana. There was a de-prioritization of the enforcement of the federal law against the patients who use the drug in compliance with the laws of the drug. This de-prioritization was enacted in 2009 by Obama. This then led to the regulation of the living organisms.

This led to timeline of food and drug legislation and family smoking prevention and tobacco control act which gives the food and drug administration authority for regulating the tobacco industry. Later in 2010 the FDA food safety Modernization act was developed.

...Based on the financial statements on BA’s website, there was a loss of £401 million in the mid-year of 2009 (Milmo, 2009) – it was then apparent to BA that in order to survive in the competitive environment, changes are necessary. Summary of threats that have affected BA’s survival are: 1. Increase in oil prices. 2. Increase in competitors – low-cost airlines with low fares. 3. Global recession which cause a drop in passenger counts (especially in strong market like US and UK). BA realised that cost reduction for operations is essential to sustain the business, and they concluded that this could only be done through ceasing pay increment and staff retrenchment. BA’s CEO, Mr. Willie Walsh, concluded that changes have to be made only for the purpose of cost reduction, and this business cost needs to be reduced from top to bottom in order for BA to recover its loss. The first change was staff reduction. In 2009, BA started a retrenchment plan where 4900 employees lost their jobs. The reason was that BA thought the high staff number was not in proportion with its high cost. A significant change was that cabin crews have been reduced from 15 to 14 in long-haul flights as the additional staff was not ‘economically’ required. Mr. Walsh set the first example by not having his salary for one month. He further told the employees to take unpaid leaves within a month, yet still work for the company......

...RUNNING HEAD: Timeline 1 Interactive Timeline EDU 324: History of American Education Timeline 2 Interactive Timeline I think the most significant event from my timeline was the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 ended segregation in public places such as schools and prohibited discrimination in the workforce on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The Civil Rights Act was a stepping stone in changing the future of this entire country. President Johnson signed the act into law on July 2, “the Civil Rights Act of 1964, was the most comprehensive civil rights statute in U.S. history and one of the nation’s most significant pieces of social legislation” (Webb, 2014). If the Civil Rights Act had not passed into the law, this country would still be very much divided and segregation and racial discrimination would have continued. In 2008, the first African-American man, Barack Obama, was elected into the presidential office. In the upcoming election, a woman, Hilary Clinton will run for the presidential office. These major events in history would have never been possible without the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. I think the most interesting person is my timeline is Anne Sullivan and how she became known as “the miracle worker”. Anne Sullivan had vision problems of her own and she began to work with Helen Keller......
