Luce and Wallace
Even before the World War II, United States had clearly become more powerful, and it played a more effective role in international affairs then before. World War II was the largest struggle humankind has ever seen. It killed more people, cost more money, damaged more property, affected more people, and caused more far-reaching changes in nearly every country than any other war in history. United States hoped to stay out of the war because of the experiences they had in World War I. However, Americans in General, while not wishing to fight the war, were definitely not acting neutral. After the WWII began in Europe in 1939, people in the America were divided on whether their country should take part or stay out. The isolationists wanted the country to stay out of the war at almost any cost. Another group, the interventionists, wanted the United States to do all in its power to aid the Allies (u-s-history). They were several Blueprints for the post war and variety of different ideas about it. “One of the most celebrated blueprints for the postwar world was written in 1941 by Henry Luce, the publisher of Life and Time magazines. In American Century, Luce sought to mobilize the American people for both the coming war and era of postwar world leadership”(Foner 193). The ideology of Luce was that Americans should be aware of that the role history had push upon them as the world’s most powerful nation. In the other hand, “Many Americans who deplored the Bombastic tone of Luce’s call for an American Century welcomed the response offered by Vice President Henry Wallace (Foner196). Henry Wallace claimed that not any single power should rule the world. Henry R. Luce and Henry A. Wallace had invoked the same ideology of interceding to the war, however, the outcome of their ideas for the postwar were different from each.
In February 17, 1941 Henry Luce…...

George Wallace

...Chris Bangham November 17th, 2008 Anthony Donaldson Alabama History The George Wallace Paradox George Wallace lost his first gubernatorial election for his lack of a strong stance against desegregation. He would not make that mistake in his next election. His sense of appealing to the majority and his beliefs in the status quo of segregation drove his beliefs until the status quo changed. Desegregation came and people accepted it and his sense of appealing to the majority caused his own view to change. His changes would present questions of his motives of the past and present and also would present two contradictory images of a George Wallace. George Wallace was the absolute image of segregation to a decrepit man who seemed unapologetic, apologetic, and in denial about his own past. In 1958, George Wallace was a Judge with a strong opposition to civil rights and against federal involvement with state matters regarding such. His popularity drove him to seek the governorship of Alabama. He ran against a man named John Patterson in the Democratic Primary. Patterson, with the support of the Ku Klux Klan, defeated him. Wallace blamed the loss on his lack of being a strong segregationist. 1 Four years later, in 1962 he ran again and swept the Democratic primary and won the election with the lack of support for Republicans in Alabama at the time. During his inaugural address, in January 1963 he made the famous speech that would follow him for the rest of his......

Included in the presentation would be set of priorities to focus on over the next year, a clear plan and the expense. Frank Campbell, the Vice President of Industrial Relations, sums up the Wallace Group problem in a simple statement. He said, "Morale is really poor here. Hal runs this place like a one man operation, when it's grown too big for that." Frank also mentions that it took a the entire company revolting against him to finally make the President take action. Therefore, the most important problem facing the Wallace Group, is Harold Wallace himself. However, the problems do not stop there. In his interview, Hal mentions two key factors also contributing to his bad business etiquette. First, Hal admits he...

Maturing Through the Eyes of David Foster Wallace - Forever Overhead

...Foster Wallace He is finally in line for the high dive. Should he look bored? Cross his arms? Look at the other girls and boys or just in a general direction? Too late, there is no time to think. It is time to climb. In David Foster Wallace’s memoir “Forever Overhead”, Wallace depicted how maturing can be scary, but worth the strife through his great description of his 13th birthday. The setting I s describes in such detail and portrays the theme in many different ways. Three places that the theme is portrayed is when he completely bypasses his parents on his walk to the diving board, when he sees the “girl-women, women”, and the preparation and the, assumption of, act of jumping off of the diving board after contemplation. As he recalls himself at a swimming pool for his 13th birthday, he sees the high board. He knows that he and his family will be leaving soon, so he makes the quick decision to go get in line and do it. As he gets out going to get in the line, he walks right by them without saying a word. “Get out now and go past your parents, who are sunning and reading, not looking up. Forget your towel.” His parents, not even paying attention to their birthday boy, show more trust in him by letting him do whatever he pleases, not looking over his shoulder every ten minutes. Also, once most people hit the age of 13, an official teenager, most kids tend to think their parents are annoying, and that they may not need them as much as they used to. So when Wallace made......

Evaluation of Braveheart and the Acts and Deeds of Sir William Wallace

...Evaluation of Braveheart and The Acts and Deeds of Sir William Wallace In this paper I will give a personal evaluation of the book, The Acts and Deeds of Sir William Wallace, and the movie, Braveheart. In the movie Braveheart, I was able to see better what William Wallace’s feeling and emotions were than in the book. I believe in all movies that are based off of books, the audiences are always given a better sense of who the character is. I will also tell you what is false in the movie Braveheart. I have some conflicting issues with movies because they do provide false information also. This is a little background information on William Wallace. (2012, September 20. lordsandladies.org Alchin, L.K.) William was born at Ellerslie (now Elderslie), in Paisley, Parish in 1272, and he was exicuted in Smithfield in 1305. The name Braveheart was given to him as a nickname, for he was nicknamed this because of his character he showed to others; brave, charismatic, stubborn, and tenacious. He was born into a lower social class, as his dad was a small land owner with a small farm. William was knighted Guardian of Scotland after he led the victorious battle in Stirling. Wallace was heroic outlaw, for he was a hero and legend all over Scotland, but the English despised his rebellious actions against the king, Edward I. (The Acts and Deeds of Sir William Wallace, pg. 431) “May foul things befall you, since one has put all of you to confusion”. In this quote, the English lord was......

David Foster Wallace

...The Ghana Empire (c. 300 until c. 1200) was located in what is now southeastern Mauritania and western Mali. Complex societies based on trans-Saharan trade with salt and gold had existed in the region since ancient times[1] But the introduction of the camel to western Sahara in the 3rd century A.D. gave way to great changes in the area that became the Ghana Empire. By the time of the Muslim conquest of North Africa in the 7th century the camel had changed the ancient more irregular trade routes into a trade network running from Morocco to the Niger river. The Ghana empire grew rich from this increased trans-Saharan trade in gold and salt allowing for larger urban centers to develop. It further more encouraged territorial expansion to gain control over the different traderoutes. When Ghana's ruling dynasty began is uncertain; it was mentioned for the first time in written records by Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī in 830.[2] In the 11th century the Cordoban scholar Abu Ubayd al-Bakri collected stories from a number of travelers to the region, and gave a detailed description of the kingdom. He claimed that the Ghana could "put 200,000 men into the field, more than 40,000 of them archers" and noted they had cavalry forces as well.[3] As the empire declined it was finally made a vassal to the rising Mali Empire at some point in the 13th century. When the Gold Coast in 1957 became the first black nation in sub-Saharan Africa to regain its independence from colonial rule it......

Good People by David Foster Wallace

...Essay #1 “Good People” by David Foster Wallace Karin Shoemaker When you hear the comment, “They are good people” what is your first impression? Do you ever wonder what exactly is good people? What truly gives people the title or role of being “good”? In the story, “Good People” by David Foster Wallace, those are the questions that the main character, Lane Dean Jr is faced with. Lane and his girlfriend have just found out they are expecting. They are a young couple still in college and very scared about what the future may hold. Throughout this short story Lane is having a subconscious battle; a battle based on his own morals stemming from his personal thoughts of what faith means and the struggle to maintain the status of being “good people” for not only himself, but his girlfriend also. When a person, or people are faced with the consequences of a poor choice, such as unprotected premarital sex, must it define them as bad people? Will it follow you for the rest of your life? Why would you not be considered “good people” because of a particular situation, and who makes that call in the first place? Is it God or is it was society leads us to believe? The stories setting takes place with the couple sitting on a table top of a picnic table right next to a lake. “It was springtime, and the parks grass was very green and the air suffused with honey suckle and lilacs both, which was almost too much. There were bees, and the angle of the sun made the water of the......

Wallace Case

...WALLACE GROUP Harold Wallace, founder, serves as Chairman and President of the Wallace Group. He owns 45% of the outstanding stock. The company consists of three operating groups -- Electronics, Plastics, and Chemicals -- which generate sales of $70 million. Mr. Wallace continues direct operational control over the Electronics Group. Several years ago, Wallace and the Board embarked on a strategy of diversification into plastics and chemicals in order to decrease the company’s dependence on defense-related business. Presently, the morale within The Wallace Group has deteriorated to the point where some of the employee stockholders made an attempt to force Wallace’s resignation. As a result of this crisis, Wallace has hired Frances Rampar, a management consultant, to conduct a management survey into the problems facing The Wallace Group. Her task is to develop a series of priorities for Wallace’s consideration. Issues and Problems Chair- President Conflict On product diversification, there is an increase size, and relationship of size to managerial compensation. Also, the company does have problems with regard to the managerial employment risk. With regard to the use of free cash flow, the managers prefer to invest these funds in additional product diversification. Shareholder prefers the funds as dividend so they can control how the funds are invested. Managerial opportunism prevents the, maximization of shareholders wealth. With regard to organization......

David Foster Wallace Commencement Speech

...David Foster Wallace was the commencement speaker for the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. Throughout his commencement speech, he made certain he entertained the young college students and not bore them with his speech. He does this by first telling a story that would first attract their attention and after he has caught their attention, he gives them information that would help them understand his speech, he talks about different extreme situations, he uses the phrase capital-T twice to gain attention and importance, and then proceeds to telling stories that the audience can relate to. Wallace’s main point he wanted to get across was that we should not live our live with a blind certainty and we should not live our lives based on assumptions. We should not live in a way that our default way of thinking can imprison our choice to choose what we want to think and that we should not live our lives thinking we are the absolute center of the universe and everything revolves around us. When we do this, we become imprisoned and start to think that we are the only one that has a problem but when we don’t live that way, we soon realize that we have a choice to think about everyone else’s problem and how it can be worse than ours. In his speech, Wallace talks about how someone can commit suicide and shoot themself in the head. If by any chance, the audience were not listening through his speech, when they heard that, they surely would have listened up again just because of......

The Wallace Group

...The Wallace Group The Wallace Group has a problem with strategic management. Specifically, the firm fails to implement its corporate strategy correctly. Furthermore it fails to make the necessary adjustments in strategy formulation required to take the corrective action necessary to resolve its implementation problems. To correct this problem, my first recommendation is for the Wallace group to solidify its management team. Currently the team lacks the expertise necessary to run the three divisions as a cohesive unit. It also lacks the expertise in non-defense areas to successfully execute its growth strategy into these private sector markets. New managers from outside the organization must be hired with this experience and expertise. These people will help establish the policies, programs, budgets and procedures necessary to succeed in the new growth areas. They will also be able to firmly establish the roles and responsibilities of each person in both the corporate and group positions to ensure that the organizational structure supports corporate strategy and unity. The second recommendation I would make is to sell off the Chemical Group. This group is the weakest of the three and using valuable resources, particularly engineers, that could be put to better use in the other divisions. The proceeds of the sale could also be used to upgrade the salary structure. This move would allow the firm to retain and attract the top-notch talent they desperately need to improve......
