I am going to need some audience participation. Everyone take a $5, $10, or $20 dollar bill out. How many of you are willing to rip your money up? You probably wouldn’t do it and think this is crazy, but we throw money away like this in the name of our car, television, or shoes every month. Let me give you an example.
I am sure that everyone of you have heard about aliens and UFOs. Indeed, we all have heard about the famous case of aliens and UFOs in Roswell, New Mexico. Most people might be interested in the topic of aliens, but I know that the majority of you just think of it as rumours and the existence of them are impossible. Therefore, I am standing here in front all of you to make you change your perspective. I am strongly confident that I have found the evidence of their real existence to convince all of you.
We’ve all seen, and pitied, that poor mom walking down the aisle holding the hand of an uncooperative toddler while using her innate mom superpower to wrangle the squirming infant in her arms.
Nova-cracy is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. It exist only to serve us, not to rule use. They don't give us our rights. Our rights are ours. Anyone who would take away our freedoms and liberties is violating the Constitution and is an enemy of the people and an enemy of our country.
Narrator: In the 1950s and 60s, racial segregation was still prevalent in the United States and Australia. There were many people, including government bodies, who wanted to solve this problem of racism and desegregate the American society. On the 17th of May 1954, the US Supreme Court decided that segregation in America’s public schools was ‘unconstitutional’. So, the US government decided to enrol 9 black American teenagers in the Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas. 5 years later, another African American, James Meredith, decided to enrol in the University Ole Miss in Mississippi. He was twice denied admission, but he filed a law suit against them, with the case eventually settling in 1962. His enrolment received severe backlash,
As you know, Columbia City is on the move. We are becoming bigger and better than ever. Within the last year we have added new eating establishments for family and friends to enjoy. There have been several upgrades to our historic downtown, including a beautiful new park in the heart of the city and cosmetic changes to several of our beautiful buildings. Our main roads are much more pleasant to drive down as Main Street and 109 have had recent upgrades. In addition, our fantastic town has many more projects in the works including a waterpark to attract area residence for some exciting recreation. Last but not least, the newest and most profound addition that will benefit the citizens of Columbia City for generations to come, a brand new, state of the art high school.
Iowa is nourished with some of the most beautiful scenic views in the United States. From the vast spread of expanse of prairie lands and woodlands, to the scenic rivers and lakes, we have some of the most unappreciative environment known to date. Nevertheless, these wonderful beauties and opportunities may sound indulging, they do come with the many unique challenges. I will be focusing on a small city called Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In the next few pages I will lay out a platform which will allow you to analyze the strengths and weakness, along with the city’s

Velocibox is an ultra-difficult speedrun with almost zero room for error. It’s an extreme test for not only your reflexes, but spatial awareness. It will also test your ability to not punch a hole through your screen. The concept is simple; while moving at an incredible speed, you must avoid hazards (one touch and you restart the level) and collect enough orbs to complete the level. You move left or right and can ride the walls with full 360-degree freedom. There is a game-changing wrinkle that Velocibox throws at you, however, and that is the “flip.” When you flip the screen, you end up on the top (essential for avoiding flat ground obstacles), but it also “flips” everything else. What is on the right is now on the left and vice-versa. This can be very disorienting at
In the continuing battle to address substance use disorders around the nation, medical specialists are confronted with the eternal debate in how to best treat those who are suffering. So by now you’ve probably seen the ads and billboards, especially in and around New York and Philly, for Vivitrol.
The controversial issue regarding the abolishment of penalty rates within the Australian workforce has been addressed heavily in the Australian media. It’s my intention in this speech to assert that penalty rates are vital for low-wage earning as a form of fair compensation for their surplus working hour. My target audience are members of the Parliament who are aiming to reinforce the abolishment of the penalty rate in an effort to raise economic benefit and general citizens. This speech is to be addressed in a formal register in a theatre in front of parliament members.
For example, using a leftover coffee can for loose nails or screws, or even washing and reusing a plastic zip-loc bag instead of throwing it in the garbage. Thrift shopping is a way of reusing someone else’s unwanted goods. As I spoke about in an earlier speech about thrifting, I included many locations and ways to thrift, also the benefits to the shopper and the donator. One place in particular was shopping at the local boys and girls club. I personally shop there, keeping my eyes open for a good deal. For example, the pair of jeans that I am wearing today was purchased from this store just a few months ago. I paid only $8.00 for this pair of Lucky Jeans and according to buckle.com, a retailer for lucky jeans the retail price is $99.00 that is a savings to me of $91.00.I am not the type to worry about name brands, but quality usually does cost more. If I can get a quality pair of jeans at a fraction on the price, I am glad to shop at the thrift store. I am thankful to the person that made the donation of the lucky jeans and they can benefit from that donation. According to the IRS webpage, IRS. Gov it explains that an individual can donate items like clothing, household furniture and furnishings, a car or boat, even taxidermy. The donations are appraised, by the donator, and recorded. At the time of filing taxes if the donation equals at least $500 for the year, the donator may take advantage of the
I grew up in a quaint yet homely apartment that had paint chipping off its walls and a musty, mold smell that permeated the air in a downtown Brooklyn neighbourhood where the stench of sewage was a daily occurrence and it was unremarkable to witness two asian grandmas up at each other’s throats. I wasn’t raised in the happiest and privileged place in the world yet I didn’t let my adversities throw me down to the ground. I appreciate that Columbia is like a plane. It contains people of all walks in life and educational backgrounds, but what matters most is not where we from, it is that we are all reaching the same destination, the destination where we all become open minded, educated adults.
When I was in middle school, I ran track—specifically, the 1500 meter event. Every meet, I got last place. But I still received a ribbon—the same size, albeit not the color blue—of the first-place winner. As a kid who didn’t really care about sports, I was never too upset over getting last—after all, someone had to. But I was always baffled by the fact that despite putting in minimal effort, I was still earning ribbons. To me, participating isn’t an achievement, and nobody deserves a trophy for it—I assumed people participated for the enjoyment. I ran track, not for the ribbons, but because I loved running. However, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to understand that everyone does not hold the same philosophies as I. Over the past four
