Osama Bin Laden’s Annihilation!! USA USA USA!!!

Hello my name is Nick P. and I’m in Mr Sals period 9 class for 20th Century. On May 1st Osama Bin Laden was captured and killed by a group of 20-25 Navy SEALS. This was first confirmed by CNN at about 10:30 p.m. on May 1st. At this time President Barack Obama was suppose to make an annoucement about it but it was delayed until 11:30 p.m. that night. This is a great accomplishment for the United States of America because Osama has been hiding for 10 years because of 9-11. This is going to effect everybody now because we have just killed Al-Qaeda’s leader. We have to keep one eye open all the time now since this happened.

WWI Game (France)

Hello I am Nick P. in Mr. Sal’s Period 9 class. I was part of the French Empire.
We started out with 3 economic points to spend each year. I split the economic points and spent it on industry, colonies, and navy. Then when we started to get more economic points for each year we started to lean toward more navy than anything else. Then we started to split with navy and industry since we could lose colonies in fights and army is nothing.
When other countries started to make alliances with other countries we had to make treaties and not be the little country that everyone dominates. We make treaties with Germany and the Ottoman Empire. We made these treaties because they were not with any of the other countries. Germany and the Ottoman Empire had an alliance together so we decided to join them and dominate everybody. We did not break any treaties with the countries we had alliances with.
I am very please with our countries outcome because dominated the other countries and the other classes. I would not do anything differently because we conquered the other countries and spent our money wisely.
Yes I have a better understanding of diplomacy. Diplomacy is the art and practice of conducting negotiations between representatives of groups or states. Between different countries we made negotiations with them. We signed treaties and we would give the other country half of our colonies. Diplomacy is a very important thing in war because it can deal with peacemaking, trades, economics, environment, and human rights.

Crime in the 1900’s

Hello my name is Nick P. I am in Mr. Sal’s 9th Period class. My topic is crime. In the the 20th Century crime was a widespread. Crime is defined as an act punishable by law. Crime was a huge thing in the the 1900’s. Robbery and murder were two of the biggest examples of crime in the 20th Century.
Since there were immigrants and the jobs paid poorly, people had to find other ways to add to their income such as robbery. Many people tried to fix robbery but you can’t stop robbery. Nothing will ever work. Robbery is always going to be an issue so there is nothing that can really stop it.
As cities grew from urban growth so did the violence. The murder rate increased from 1.2 per 100,000 people in 1900 to 6.8 per 100,000 in 1920. Murder is always going to be an issue throughout the world. People probably tried to stop it but you can’t stop murder. It’s always going to happen.
