11. Yellow Journalism- The cartoon “Hogan’s Alley” depicted a tenement urchin, “The Yellow Kid,” who mocked upper-class customs and wore a yellow gown. When THE JOURNAL matched THE WORLD in color print, the author of the cartoon switched newspapers. The ensuing dispute gave rise to “yellow journalism” (unprincipled journalism) and led to the recruitment of countless newsboys in a bid to increase sales. The biggest yellow journalists were Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst (“Please remain. You furnish the pictures. I’ll furnish the war.”)

17. Bohemian Thinkers- Many of these “thinkers” lived in Greenwich Village, NYC. They supported Freudian psychoanalysis, rejected traditional sexual traditions, and the Victorian life. This group included Isadore Duncan; the Ashcan artists (Henri, Sloan, and Luk); Eugene O’Neill, the playwright; Margaret Sanger, early supporter of birth control. Their influence was limited because they didn’t involve themselves in the reform movement. Their attitude was “do as I say, not as I do.”

21. Spanish-American War- The Spanish-American War was fought in 1898. The causes of this war were American concern for Cuban independence; the rise of yellow journalism; American business interests in Cuba; the DeLome letter, which was written by the Spanish Foreign Minister and criticized President McKinley; and the sinking of the USS Maine, which sank in the Havana Harbor on February 15, 1898 and was blamed on the Spanish. The war was declared on April 10, 1898 and the treaty was signed on April 17, 19—(I wrote the wrong year and have to go back and look it up, sorry!)

23. Theodore Roosevelt- Theodore Roosevelt, the first Progressive Era president and former governor of New York, was an outgoing outdoorsman who was full of life. He was also known as the “Trust-buster,” but didn’t believe that big corporations should be broken up indiscriminately. Regulation seemed the better approach to him. With Roosevelt’s “Square Deal”, TR had the government intervene in the United Mine Worker’s strike in 1902, and the sides soon settled. He continued and succeeded in reforms in railroads with the Hepburn Bill that strengthened the Interstate Commerce Commission (regulates RR). The Pure Food & Drug Act was passed also. The one area for which he is most famous is in conservation. Roosevelt was the first president to win a noble prize, and he lived at Sagamore Hill, NY.

30. William Jennings Bryan- William Jennings Bryan was the fundamentalists lawyer who was involved the Scopes Trial of the 1920’s.

Essay on The Existence of Terrorism Throughout History

- The Existence of Terrorism Throughout History   The history of terrorism can’t be traced back to a certain time or date.  However, there has been a great history in the terrorism timeline.  Whether they have been foreign attacks or domestic attacks the United States have been through them all.  A bloody and gruesome history is about to unraveled.  If one were to talk about the first act of terrorism you might have to take Adam and Eve for example.  Seriously if condemning the rest of the human race to a mortal life isn’t consider a terrorism I wouldn’t know what is.  Terrorism was never really documented for a long time because no one knew how to define it.  I guess one could say the destr...   [tags: Journalistic Essays]

- In response to James Fallows’ four premises in his “Learning to Love the (Shallow, Divisive, Unreliable,) New Media,” April 2011.

I have turned this over and over and I have to say that with only a few points of specific contradiction, as a whole I agree. I believe that this is becoming an age of lies and idiocy.
