Luke was a medical doctor, a missionary, and evangelist, a historian, a researcher, and the writer of the third Gospel. The book of Luke was written in a formal literacy introduction noting his purpose in writing, his methodology, and the attempts others had made in such writing. Luke is the author of the book and it was written in AD 60 in Caesarea. According to Hindson and Elmer Luke’s purpose is to give “an orderly sequence” of the events about Christ’s birth, life, and sacrificial death followed by his resurrection and ascension back to heaven. The occasion calling for Luke to write his Gospel was that Theophilus, and other new believers like him, needed a clear account of the life and ministry of Jesus as an aid to confirm his faith
President Lincoln proposed a lenient plan to bring the defeated Confederate states to join the Union, which was known as the Ten Percent Plan. He believed that being more lenient to Confederate states would convince them to surrender sooner, and would speed up the healing process, which he thought was needed for a solid reconstruction of the Union. The plan consisted of forgiving all Southerners, except the high-ranking officers and officials, who would pledge loyalty to the Union, and as soon as 10% of the state’s voters would pledge oath to the Union, the state could call a convention and as a result could form a government and apply for federal recognition.
The civil war did reduce sectional antagonist a huge amount but it also made the United states One Nation. The war was a test for the nation or in this case ANY nation for those dedicated to see if they could endure and a final resting place for those who died and for the nation to live. There was division between the north and the south which eventually brought upon the Brutal Civil War. In president Andrew John’s Amnesty proclamation, the Union forgave the confederate and made them swear on an oath to faithfully support, protect, and defend the constitution of the United States. “The union eventually showed that they had no “antagonist” against the south which made the United States One nation once again. The soldiers that risked their lives
There had always been differences between the northern states and southern states before nullification and secession. This came down to differences in the core drivers of their economies. The south was more oriented towards Agriculture while the north was driven by industrialization. What this meant was that the south was more reserved on the consistent calls by abolitionists in the north. Abolition of slave trade would mean an almost complete collapse of the economy in the South.
In 2011, Jennifer Connell was attending her nephew, Sean, 8th birthday party, Connell walks into the backyard and upon seeing his aunt, Sean runs and jumps to hug her. Causing Connell to fall backwards landing on the ground and breaking her wrist in the process. Instead of doing something rash, like, accepting he is eight and it was an accident since the laws of physics are not clear to him yet, she did the rational thing. She filed a lawsuit - against the nephew. She claimed that the nephew had been "careless" and wanted $127,000 for emotional suffering and medical bills. In her claim she stated that she had recently attended a party and her inability to hold her "hors d'oeuvres plate was distressing and embarrassing. Deliberation lasted a mere twenty minutes. The jury awarded Jennifer Connell nothing.
Two Latinas and a baby were stopped by security while grocery shopping, because another shopper accused the dark-skinned women of kidnapping the fair-skinned, blue-eyed, blonde baby accompanying them. It was not until the fair-skinned, blue-eyed, blonde father of the baby refuted the accusation, that the women were released. My mother (who is from El Salvador) and my nanny (who is from Belize) were the two women and I was the baby. My mom and nanny would not have been publicly incriminated and shamed, were they fair-skinned. McIntosh’s article substantiates the ubiquity of white privilege. White people do not have to worry about being monitored while running errands or being pulled over because of their skin color. I agree with McIntosh’s point
Butler finished last season with seven tackles for a loss and three sacks. With the departures of Caleb Azubike and Stephen Weatherly, that makes him the second highest returning Commodore behind only Zach Cunningham.
The first talk featured Miki Kaneda and focused on the manner in which the idea of prestige is entrusted in the current time period. The argument was that though prestige can still be gained through traditional institutions, such as conservatories and companies, new music and its practices broadens accessibility to prestige. The multi-media, multi-genre, and collaborative elements present in the performance practices of those involved in the New Music scene, such as WetInk of New York, demonstrates how successful this new model of prestige can be in reaching new audiences and of maintaining financial sustainability in a market environment.
On the seventh day of the Scopes trial, the argument between Darrow and Bryan began to shake the people’s belief in creationism. Darrow asked Bryan a variety of questions regarding miracles such as the creation of Earth in six days, the exact time that God had created Earth, or the time period and the logic of the Flood. Instead of answering those questions with biblical contexts and clear explanations, Bryan repeatedly said “I don’t know,” or “I think there maybe” in between his answers. Despite of his assertion of the fact that human should not further doubt the validation of the Word of God, his answers for Darrow made him appeared as an unsure and flustered person. This image of Bryan, though unintentional, altered the public view of Christianity.
The Christophers were hired by an undisclosed 3rd party to take pictures of the Du Pont facility. Workers notice an airplane circling above the plant and an investigation is launched immediately. It is determined that the Christophers are the ones in the plane and contact is made between both plaintiff and defendant. The Christophers are asked to disclose the name of the person or corporation by Du Pont and refuse.
When Ronald Reagan unveiled the Strategic Defense Initiative, the whole world laughed. The movie Star Wars had just come out, and the description of this new laser defense system seemed more at home on the screen of a science fiction movie than in the arsenal of the American military. People today still call the plan absurd, but is it really? Well, the technology is still not quite to the level that Ronald Reagan had hoped in his speech, but it is not as far-fetched as one would think. In fact, this idea actually has paved the way for very similar systems that have been protecting Americans and other civilians for years now. So, what was the Strategic Defense Initiative and how did it evolve, how was it accepted, and what equivalent do
Intro: Power goes out on a typical American street, shortly after a strange craft is spotted overheard. An enormous argument about who caused it ensues, shortly after a boy named Tommy tells the people that it could be aliens that look like humans. The whole street is plunged into chaos, each person suspecting another of being an alien. If it weren’t for the involvement of Tommy, a great deal of conflict and irrationality could have been avoided.
To be considered free in American society, according to Sandel’s definition of a procedural republic, freedom relies on an individual’s participation in self-government. For those who support the procedural republic they encourage civic virtues, such as educating ones self about the public and the ability to debate about the common good. This can be seen as a responsibility to citizens. Therefore, one may understand this as both a social and civic matter, as it requires citzens to posses as sense of belonging in their community, thus guiding them away from pursuing their own interests and focusing on the common good. Thus, just as Sandel discusses the qualities of shaping of what kind of citizens are formed, Glendon claims “law can and should
Furthermore, in an article by Harper et al. (2014), the authors quantify the decisional satisfaction regarding college-age (18-26) women’s acceptance or declination of the HPV vaccine. In this study 306 women without prior HPV vaccination and 299 vaccinated women agreed to participate by completing a survey ranked 1-5 (1=strongly disagree to 5=strongly agree) on how well the individual agreed with the prompts. Harper et al. found that when women approached the prompt of “This is the best decision for me personally,” the mean score for non-vaccinated women was 4.1 and vaccinated women 4.2, respectively, on a five-point scale (Harper, 3). This correlation shows that the women are nearly equal in their satisfaction for accepting or declining
Smallholders party but he had no actual power against the Communist and the occupiers (Angi 378). The responsible person for organising the deportations was the Minister of Interior, Communist László Rajk. A week after the Potsdam Conference, where the number of Germans to be expelled from the three countries were determined at 6.5 million (Angi 377), Voroshilov Marshall ordered the Hungarian government to expel 400.000 - 450.000 German people. Hungary received Article XIII in Russian which showed the power relations and predicted that the restricted political ability of the Hungarian Government (Apor 37). Voroshilov argued that expelling the Germans Hungary could get rid of the “dangerous fifth column” (Kertesz 182). On the contrary, Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, János Gyöngyösi highlighted, that the punishment of German people on the basis of nationality would be equal with the Hitlerite idea, and would provide a precedent in the neighbouring countries for the case of Hungarian
