These posters were for recruiting men for the navy, and women for working in the plants to crate ships and weapons for the navy. They were over women having certain jobs at this point in the war, they were using everyone at this point. During this exercise I learned about how difficult and hard it would have been to be a soldier in WWI. New weapons such as gas bombs had just come into existence so there were even more deaths. Around ten million died in WWI leaving a huge gap in every country involved.

Detroit and Bloomfield Township are neighbors but worlds apart. One is poverty stricken while the other is wealthy. Detroit having a huge population and having about a third of it in poverty while Bloomfield continues to be quite prosperous. Crime rates are also much higher then in Bloomfield. They differ in race as well do to the segregation which still seems 2 remain.
Total population: 713,777
Population Density (per sq mile)11: 5,144.3
Poverty rate among people who did not graduate high school not in families: 51.6%

Does industrial wealth serve a moral purpose OR represent moral decrepitude?
These two articles show the positive and negative sides of the industrial revolution. Manchester talks about the negative side and how people were treated badly. It talked about how workers had horrible working conditions and not paid fairly at all. Carnegie's argument is that its better to have some succeed then no one. He also mentions though that those who are fortunate should share their wealth. So in some instances such as Manchester represented moral decrepitude. In other cases such as Carnegie moral purpose was shown. Both were induced by industrial wealth the its only the people who made it positive or negative.

Benjamin Franklin was one of the founding fathers, so I don't have any idea of what my life would be if this country wasn't the way it is today. He was a scientist who did not only social experiments but also some with electricity, so without that I'm not sure what I would have learned about in physics that had to do with electricity. He was an inventor he invented the Lightning rod, without which I might be dead, bifocals, also with out I would die from my parents well as many other things. He formed both the first public lending library in America which without I may not have such a variety in music and literature. In conclusion basically I would not know what to do with myself if these things did not exist.
Jack St. Clair Kilby was an inventor and scientist as well he invented the integrated circuit, or microchip. Without this we would have no computers or any kind of modern technology, no calculator for your math test, no cell phone to call your parents to remind them they were supposed to pick you up and hour and a half ago… without this invention we would all be very different. All of this technology boom would not be happening we would still be researching things by going to the library to find an article that works with your topic, heck I would be hand writing this right now…So both Kilby and Franklin invented something that I would not know what to do without if there were no computers to look things up and the public library didn’t exist then what?? You would have to buy a book every time you didn’t know something or borrow from a friend, but how annoying would that be??!! So Franklin in my opinion was more important seeing has he was a founding father and all, but ya know no big deal or anything... If Kilby didn’t exist and Franklin did I think I may be able to live but if it were the opposite…I don’t know….
