The decline of party strength and influence began in the 19th century, partly due to the growth of the federal government under FDR whose 'New Deal' establishment served to undermine traditional social functions once carried out by party machines, thus weakening party loyalty. In the 1960's and 1970s new issues such as civil rights, feminism, environmentalism and consumer rights arose to challenge traditional voting habits. These issues did not divide neatly along party lines and more voters indulged in "ticket-splitting" (voting for different parties in different elections). Partly in response to these trends, the parties themselves began to question their own policies and challenge their

being educated enough. This was a problem, as previously stated because African Americans had NO education while enslaved. Furthermore, this allowed for even more oppression, as immigrants, women, and the poor could still not vote. Finally, the 18th Amendment ended voting restrictions, allowing all citizens to vote.
B. Due to the end of slavery, the American economy was less reliant on human labor and could shift focus to industrialization. Machines were one way that humans could utilize technology to speed up the process, as they were much more efficient and less needy than slaves. This allowed more production, leading to a better economy and better trade. Also, with industrialization, came

reach father than it should. He believes that government should not intervene in the lives of its subjects and especially not force them to take actions which make them less humane. Thoreau elaborates this concept of inhumanness when comparing "[masses] of men" to "machines" (226). Through this metaphor he argues that men become less human when they serve government obediently, such as soldiers who will fight and mercilessly kill in order to be patriotic and serve their country. Instead of objecting to unfair laws these people just give their bodies and assume the role of puppets while the government feels free to pull the strings. These men, such as the "militia, jailers, constables," labor

at this time. This shows that society values white men more than any other people in society and
they had more opportunity, which did not allow a inclusive and diverse impact on early America
and therefore not having the country to grow as a whole. Having only white men voting for
politicians would also shape the Industrial Market as well, because the politicians influence what
occurs in the market which produces machines and crops. To summarize, society valued white
men’s opinions which caused inequality and unfair privilege that confirms the backtrack of

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

Walter Freeman and the Invention of the Lobotomy
In Steely Library’s digital archives, one of the postcards from the Gilliam family collection is entitled Western Kentucky Asylum for the Insane, Hopkinsville, KY. The postcard dates back to 1915 and portrays a beautiful building, complete with red bricks and white columns. Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within. Insane asylums built in the early to mid 1900s were still getting on their feet, and many of them encountered problems with patient care early on

When I was a child, my late father and I would spend every moment of the summer season on
the sparkling white sand of the beach near our home. We would dance, kicking up the shiny
surface so that the droplets glimmered like diamonds in the sunlight. We would lie on our backs
and stare at the sky, until the swirling clouds began to take on our imaginative shapes mingled
together by our fantastical minds. We would grip imaginary weapons and fight, thrusting swords
like the most violent of fantasy pirates. These unforgettable days went on and on, a never ending
cycle of blue skies, imprinted forever in my mind. My earliest memories are filled with images

past as jobs that required simple routines have been replaced by machines that can emulate the human effort many times faster and with less error (Stommel, Deng, & Xu, 2017). Examples of this include factory manufacturing, transportation of goods, computer processing of information, and cashier customer services (Frey & Osborne, 2013). Today we can see that robotics are moving beyond emulating and improving physical human labour, they are also developing with sensors and algorithms to provide “intelligent” services such as following customized instructions, identifying and fixing maintenance issues, and even caring for patients, such as the elderly or healthcare in general (Frey & Osborne

In the article “Indigenous remain ‘asset rich, dirt poor’ 25 years after Mabo”, Indigenous affairs editor, Fitzpatrick (2017) presents the socioeconomic situation of the Aboriginal people, using the views of the former prime minister’s advisor, Josephine Cashman. Miss Cashman pointed out that the promises made to the indigenous people, presented in the Mabo case, had not been fulfilled accordingly after the year 1992. Many indigenous people still have inadequate housing, poor health, restricted education and lower average incomes. About 25 years from the Wik decision, many Aboriginals were classified under the

Comparison Between the Portrayal of Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby in Chapters 1 to 6
Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and

A home automation system typically connects controlled devices to a central hub or "gateway". The user interface for control of the system uses either wall-mounted terminals, tablet or desktop computers, a mobile phone application, or a Web interface, that may also be accessible off-site through the Internet. Also it will control lighting, climate, entertainment systems, and appliances. It may also include home security such as access control and alarm systems. When they are connected with the Internet, home devices are an important constituent of the Internet of Things.

History is the study of past events. Within history many major events have occurred that has change the equilibrium we know of today.

Many things took an impact either directly or indirectly. Many factors that contributed that changed the way we view or progress within our economy is the continuation of ongoing wars, airport surveillance, immigration, general surveillance
