The Marrow of Tradition - As the United States developed and grew, upward mobility was central to the American dream. It was the unstated promise that no matter where you started, you had the chance to grow and proceed beyond your initial starting point. In the years following the Civil War, the promise began to fade. People of all races strived to gain the representation, acknowledgement and place in this society. To their great devastation, this hope quickly dwindled. Social rules were set out by the white folk, and nobody could rise above their social standing unless they were seen fit to be part of the white race....   [tags: Charles W.

Aerodynamic Forces - Aerodynamic Forces The use of aerodynamic forces by the expert golfer was demonstrated to me once by a drive off the tee by a well-known professional, Arnold Palmer.

Instead of the ball going on the path I had expected, it climbed in a nearly straight line for about 3 s and only then began to fall. Recall that Newton's First Law states that a body continues in a straight line at constant speed unless a force acts on it....   [tags: Papers] 3440 words

And who indeed would have ever expected that the properties of light might affect whether or not we go on homicidal rampages. Perhaps Kurt Vonnegut did.

The Mark I Tank’s Role in Changing Trench Warfare - During the First World War, 1914 to 1918, the “Western Front” referred to a series of trench lines that ran from the Belgian coast, to the Alps.

It was developed to cross trenches, resist small-arms fire, travel over difficult terrain, carry supplies, and capture fortified enemy positions....   [tags: Military Technology ]
