Essay about President Barack Obama’s speech “Back to school”
Education is enormously important. The wish of having a good education system and people who freely use it is not something that only a few countries want or wish, but almost the whole world takes aim at this. The focus on education has particularly in the United States big mentions and support. The current Government, which are sitting on the power right now, has this area high on their list of upcoming plans for the future of the US. President Barack Obama has therefore also this topic involved in most of his performances and in most of the speeches he makes. Therefor, it’s definitely an option for the President to talk

In 2008 Barack Obama and the Democratic Party swept the United States Federal Government taking control of the Executive branch and majority positions in both the House and Senate. The President with Democratic Party leaders pushed forward on their liberal leaning agenda culminating in the passing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act referred to by republicans as Obamacare. The expansion of government, poor economy and the lack of visible change during first year of the Obama administration ignited the Tea Party movement in 2009 on the platform to shrink government and deny Barack Obama a second term. By the March 2010 the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was

a further cultural fight. During the 1960’s it was not legal for a white and black to get married. About 30 years after the adoption of the civil rights laws, the majority of the American people supported it.
The movement for gay rights to marriage has in surprisingly short time achieved the kind of change that took other movements way longer to achieve.
In 2012 there was the biggest debate about same-sex marriage. 2012 was also the year where there were presidential election, between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, in the United States.

the private conversation between Obama and Cameron:
It is a curse that afflicts all political leaders: having no time to think. Gordon Brown often does his thinking at the crack of dawn because his diary is so full. And a remarkable conversation when David Cameron met Barack Obama on Saturday was picked up by an ABC News microphone.
Cameron: Do you have a break at all?
Obama: Actually the most important thing you need to do is to have big chunks of time during the day when all you’re doing is thinking … The biggest mistake that a lot of these folks make is just feeling as if you have to be…
Cameron: These guys just chalk up your diary.
Obama: Right. In 15-minute increments

Use of Visual Propaganda

Visual propaganda plays on a person’s senses without ever speaking the first word. The smallest detail, expression, color, symbol, single word, or manipulation of the visual canvas can promote a positive or negative psychological response; even create a feeling. Use of visual media is one of the most effective means of distorting the truth and gaining favor with the masses.

Warren was appointed by President Obama to serve as Special Advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury on the CFPB. President Barack Obama’s “Consumer Czar” Elizabeth Warren was appointed by Obama to help set up and, many fear, to eventually run the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). In March 2011, Warren testified to Congress about the CFPB’s role in a 50-state settlement underway with the nation’s largest mortgage lenders related to alleged improper foreclosure procedures.

Also how one was raised and where they lived as a child, I believe plays a factor in some cases of residential segregation. There are multiple reasons that contribute to racial segregation in today’s world, it’s sad to know it still goes on but I don’t think it will ever be totally prevented.

Matzeliger’s invention quickly made Lynn the “shoe capital of the world.” Matzeliger became one of the founders of the Consolidated Lasting Machine Company which was formed around his invention.
Matzeliger’s work habits and his neglect of his health, however, soon took a toll. In the summer of 1887, he caught a cold then developed tuberculosis. Jan Ernst Matzeliger died on August 24 of that year at the age of 39.

. The movie also shows that teachers in good public schools can finish 150 percent curriculum in one year, but teachers in ordinary public schools can only finish 50 percent curriculum. In brief, schools and bad teachers widen the disparities between students, and parents lack of choice to move their children out of failing schools.
In Bad Teacher , Kumashiro(2012) states that “Michelle Rhee fire the lazy and incompetent teachers, and Barack Obama urged that it is time for rewarding good teachers, stop making excuses for bad teachers (Page11, Paragraph 1).” In another words, bad teachers are black sheep in the public education, good teaches are hero. If all bad teachers are dismissed, then public education system can be improved. In fact, this is not an assumption which people made, it is true in the movie Waiting for superman. When Michelle Rhee dismissed a lot of incompetent principals and teachers and closed many schools, the quality of public education have been improved distinctly.

Cultural diversity has always been a political issue in America. The most recent and memorizing depiction of diversity in the media would be our choices between a traditional, Christian, American male, John McCain versus a non–traditional, religion in question, person of color, Barack Obama.

U.S. President Barack Obama traveled to Toronto for the G-20 conference in 201 0, he met with President Lee. The relationship between the two allies had taken on a new significance after North Korean forces allegedly attacked and sank a South Korean naval vessel. Forty-six sailors died in the attack. At the Toronto summit, President Obama expressed solidarity with South Korea and promised to urge the U.S. Congress to ratify the FTA. Washington and Seoul completed the negotiations and the agreement was signed. The break through came in part because the deal extended a 2.5 percent tariff on Korean cars and a 25 percent tariff on Korean SUVs for several years.

Obama stresses the importance of products bearing the label "Made in America" for the next generation, because the U.S. government wants to guarantee wealth for its future generations. Obama's message to business leaders today is simple: "Ask yourselves what you can do to bring jobs back to the country that made our success possible." If the U.S. cannot stop outsourcing, it will result in a loss of more jobs. The White House has been encouraging American multinational companies to

Barack Obama is a supporter of death penalty, but he says that it should be reserved only for “heinous crimes” such as terrorism and the harm of children.

It allows a company to venture out into new lines of business that are different from present operations. Companies choose to diversify for a host of different reasons. A major reason companies make the decision to diversify is to achieve synergy, making it possible for two or more parts of an organization to achieve greater total effectiveness or profitability than what would have been possible for a single entity.
