Dear Local Government and State Officials:
I have been experiencing a wonderful winter in the state of Maryland. We have not had a bad winter however, on the days expecting snow it always turns into a disaster.
My husband called me on the phone this morning stating that he was unable to take my friend to the airport due to the snow plows blocking the driveway completely with snow. I had to leave my work that morning to try and make calls to make sure that the situation would not happen again. This is not the only time that this has happened. It happens very often when we get snow. I spoke with the men driving the truck at the time of the incident and advised him that my friend needs to get to the airport right away or she will miss her flight. He advised me that I needed to plow out my driveway because he needed to be somewhere else. I did not take that lightly at all. I contacted his boss who stated that I need to speak with the local government and make a complaint. I became irate at this point and began to scream and throw a fit which was not good at all. After several times of trying to contact you I kept running into a hard rock. I have left several messages and still have yet to receive a phone call back due to this matter.
I am writing you this letter to explain my situation. My friend came in town to visit for a few days. Not knowing that we were expected to get snow at the time we received it. She was only to be here for a weekend. Due to the snow we received we were blocked in our house because the snow plows pushed snow into out driveway leaving us blocked in. Although, we were not happy we made the best at the situation. Being stuck in the house was not at all ideal for us because we had some plans before she was to fly back home. I came across the newspaper where I have seen several complaints with people other than myself.
I later received a call…...

...November 30, 2013 The Honorable Wendy Davis P.O. Box 12068 Capitol Station Austin, Texas 78711 Dear Senator Davis, Upon your decision to run for Governor of the great state of Texas, I was compelled to write to you concerning your stance on the issue of abortion and how this may impact women’s lives statewide if you become Governor in 2014. Your efforts to support pro-choice activists were reflected on June 25, 2013 when you filibustered to block Texas Senate Bill 5 from passing. This bill was undertaking the challenge of banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, requiring hospital-style medical care, and demanding better healthcare for women wanting an abortion. Nonetheless against all odds, you stood for 11 hours non-stop on your quest to stall the passing of this bill. Here’s where the rubber meets the road, you made statements such as, “I am pro-life, the goal that we should have is that we see zero abortions, and when I believe women’s health is in danger, I’m going to stand and fight to protect that.” These statements were reported by The Valley Morning Star. With all due respect, this is an attempt to confuse and deliberately mislead voters to be desensitized from your June filibuster. You are trying to be perceived as a moderate candidate. This tactics have also been seen from former President Bill Clinton in 1996 when he said abortion “should not only be safe and legal, it should be rare.” The positions that were made in these statements don’t...

...November carjacking.[5] Trial and appeals The 26-year-old victim picked out Dupree and Massingill from a police lineup, but her male companion did not. Dupree was charged with armed robbery and rape, but was never tried on the rape charge. In 1980, he was convicted and sentenced to 75 years in prison for aggravated robbery. Three of Dupree's appeals were rejected by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.[1] Two of the appeals were denied because he refused to admit to being a sex offender.[6] He declined early release in 2004 in exchange for attending a treatment program for offenders because he felt it would have amounted to admitting guilt.[4] Dupree later said, "Whatever your truth is, you have to stick with it."[6] Dupree continued to write letters to people and organizations around the state in his bid to prove his innocence.[7] Exoneration In 2006, the Innocence Project took Dupree's case and carried out a forensic examination of the case evidence in 2010.[1] He was represented by a legal team that included project co-founder Barry Scheck.[8] Dupree was paroled in July 2010 and married his longtime fiancée Selma Perkins the day after his release.[6] Soon afterwards,[1] test results indicated that the evidence contained DNA from two men, but not Dupree nor Massingill.[4] Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins stated, "Our Conviction Integrity Unit thoroughly reinvestigated this case, tested the biological evidence and based on the results, concluded Cornelius......

...Letter Dear Mr. President, Civic and political participation is important for citizens because everyone has the responsibility to stand up for what they believe in. Citizens in America enjoy writing letters to important leaders to receive informative feedback on their thoughts. Citizen’s words effect how the laws change in many ways, for example, by voting. Eleanor Roosevelt influenced change through speaking about civil rights. ER was committed to standing up for African American rights. She was so active in racial injustice that the FBI had a 4000 page dossier about ER pertaining to her civil rights activities. “J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI, even speculated that "Negro blood" inspired ER's perverse behavior.” “She was considered America's most influential First Lady, she started new paths for women and led the battle for social justice everywhere. Today she is still a powerful inspiration to leaders in both the civil rights and women's movements. Eleanor shattered the usual submissive mold that the role of the First Lady had traditionally been fashioned, and reshaped it around her own skills and her commitment to social reform. She gave a voice to people who did not have power.” Others benefit from ER’s actions by getting all the credit that she stood up for women and their rights. If it wasn’t for Eleanor’s contributions we women would not get all the credit that we deserve. Eleanor Roosevelt’s deserves a holiday that would celebrate her and all her......

...great pride that you are helping a young girl to learn to be a part of a team as well as giving back to your community. Your sponsorship will help buy equipment, uniforms, pay for umpires and the cost to maintain the fields. While the league tries not to turn any child away from playing it is getting harder due lack of financial sponsorships. Our league prides ourselves in helping many families with multiple children, and families that can’t afford the cost of the neighbor leagues, which can cost up to $180 for one child. The league does ask the girls to participle in fund raisers to help offset some of these costs. But with your help the league will be able to help more girls and families. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. If I may, I will phone your office in the next few days to arrange a convenient time to discuss the details of the proposed partnership.

...24 1. The Separation of Powers How did the Constitution divide power between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government? What are the different roles played by each of these branches in American national government? o Separation of powers divides power among the executive, legislative, and judicial branches as distinct departments of American national government. ▪ This endows several different institutions—the Congress, the executive branch, and the judicial branch—with the ability to influence the nation’s agenda and affect decisions. ▪ This also establishes a system of checks and balances in which power is divided to ensure that no one branch becomes predominant. o Within the system of separated powers, the framers provided for legislative supremacy, listing the powers of the national government in Article I of the Constitution, which deals with the Congress. o Presidential government has emerged, particularly after 1937, such that Congress and the president perpetually compete for contrul of the national government, particularly during periods of divided government. o The separation of powers system of checks and balances relies on the goal-seeking behavior of puliticians acting within the various institutions of the national government. Exemplifying the Rationality Principle, the give-and-take between the legislative and executive branches is fueled by the ambitions of......

...Alexus Harris January 26, 2010 History 114 2:00 - 2:30 p.m Willie Lynch Letter: The Making of a Slave In the first paragraph of the Willie Lynch Letter introduction, he started thanking the men of the colony of Virginia for inviting him to the bank of the James River. Mr. Lynch was making the men of the plantation think that, installing the chip into the slaves will make everything run easily. He also stated that if the chip were implant into the minds of slaves, Ancient Rome would envy us as black people. Personally, I think the only reason that the Ancient Rome will envy us as slaves, because we let a method of the chip control our mind, body, soul, values, and beliefs. Mr. Lynch also stated that negative differences are better then positive differences. Just think about it. Why? Would Distrust be better then Trust, this is setting our slaves up to be lynch in my eyes. As a slave, you want freedom so; you are going to want your master to trust you so that you can escape. Mr. Lynch finally, said that over time if you constantly used the method for one year, then slaves will already no what they are expecting to perform. In the paragraph “Let’s Make a Slave,” it was focusing on the process of man breaking and slave making. This means that installing the chip into our black men will allow them to become more of a servant that helps the white man lynch other slaves. It also focused on human nature, and slave nature.

The alliance helps fray down the entire cost of the project whereas joint venture focus more on a common interest in which doing business in a 3rd market is sought or a project is going underway. Both types often have management issues amongst each other. 4. A firm can be multi domestic in relation to each foreign market is different. In a multi domestic market, the need to be adaptive is high along with stressing the principle of trying to keep prices low. All markets differ and the ability to adapt and change to a certain market from a global standpoint will enable a firm to think globally along with being able to fundamentally carry on multi domestic operations within a specific market. 5. One important condition is that a host government may not permit wholly owned subsidiary’s. Another reason a joint venture may be more useful is because there may be tax advantages involved and that two operations take on the risks together. 6. Management contracts are often wanted because expertise is brought with it. A fee is often paid for the know how of delivering tacit-knowledge. In addition, poor nations may have a harder time harboring in large profits and the fee for a management contract may help the subsidiary in obtaining some tax benefits. 7. In some cases, a global firm may own a wholly owned foreign subsidiary to use a management contract even when the firm may own the subsidiary. This is common in poor nations with weak foreign exchange. The ability to rake......

...Thank you for your treat. He told me it is very interesting to translate your letters because he also learned a lot, like learn the exchange rate at that period. 信 These letters he translated reminded me of the letters my grandpa wrote to me (Although he passed away,) My father helped him bind the letters together into book form. That is only for private circulation. My grandfather ever said he had there homes, one was Guangzhou, Zhanjiang and hospital. At the start with, we whole family lived in Zhanjiang city, where was at southwestern of Guangdong province. When I was 3 years old, my parents with me moved to Guangzhou. So, one-third for Guangzhou, one-third for Zhanjiang and one-third for hospital due to his cardiovascular disease….. [ˌkɑ:diouˋvæskjulə] When he was in Zhanjiang, he wrote two letters to me each week since I studied in primary (elementary) school until I went to high school. Every letter focused on one topic which mostly talked about life, (like how to be a good student and how to behave properly……..) One of the most impression letters he wrote was it was my first time to raise a puppy when I was studied in Grade6 primary school. Via the letter, he taught me many knowledge of puppy, like the types of the dog, different functions of the dog and always warned me not to be the people who lost in play will lose their aims. 人: He was one of the members of War of Resistance against Japan but he was a secretary of the General. 食物: Avocado......

...The way I would define “government” would have to be, the group of people who control and make decisions for a country/state, or a particular system used for controlling a certain country/state. For example, the United States’ government is a federal republic and a constitutional representative democracy. Now, for advantages and disadvantages of a “government”, this could vary by the different types of governments such as: our government (what I just stated), dictatorship, monarchy, and etc. Some of the advantages of our government are: #1-It protects the interests of citizens, which we have the right to vote on political, social, and economical issues as well as the representatives that they want to be in charge of major decisions (like the President) & #2-It promotes equality, which means that all members of a country or a state are equal in the eyes of the law. Every individual has the right to enjoy and experience equal economic, political, and social rights and the state is not allowed to discriminate citizens on the standard of sex, property, and religion. Now, some of the disadvantages of our government are: #1-The misuse of time and funds, like lots of money and time go into elections where it could go elsewhere and the possibility of being ruled by irresponsible and incompetent leaders who just waste public funds for their recreations and tours & #2-Wrong choice, not all individuals are aware of political and social circumstances in the country which could be...

...hanging out together. Lately I've been thinking about the way that we always compete with each other and it's really starting to get to me. I know that it's not always intentional, but it just seems like you enjoy getting into those little arguements that we seem to almost always come across. You and I have alot of the same personality traits, yet we also seem like total opposites at times. You are a really funny/crazy guy and that's why I like to hang out with you, but sometimes you really get to me and you push my buttons. Darin, you argue with me about the stupidest things and you always have to get the last word in. Sometimes I know that I'm really the one who's right, but I let you win just so that you'll shut up. Don't take this letter personal, I'm not trying to put you down, I just thought I'd bring it to your attention before it starts to affect our friendship. I don't want to keep my feelings and thoughts all bottled up inside me and I know you've been really busy lately, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to write it all down on paper. We have a really cool friendship and I don't want to continue to have these stupid competitions with you. You are probably one of the coolest, most unique guys I've ever met and I want to keep hanging out and doing normal guy stuff, but you have to be willing to make the effort too. Please try to bite your tongue when you think that you're about to disagree with my opinions and I'll do the same with you. I hope that you don't take......

...Britain’s King George III because the colonists had enough of the heavy taxes and restrictive government persecuted by Great Britain. July 4th 1774, the Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence. The purpose of the Declaration of Independence was to formally be independent from Great Britain. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence in three parts; 1. Introduction and beliefs – provides reasons to why the colonists are breaking away from Great Britain and describes colonists’ beliefs about government. 2. List of grievance - listing the 29 complaints against King George III. 3. Formal Declaration – the colonies declared themselves free, and independent states, and would govern themselves. Panel 3 Popular Sovereignty In the Declaration of Independence popular sovereignty was reflected in the quotes below: “He Has refused for long time, after such dissolutions to cause others to be elected.” "In free governments, the rulers are the servants and the people their superiors and sovereigns." The first principle Popular Sovereignty is reflected within the Declaration of Independence. Popular sovereignty means that the people power the government by electing government leaders to represent the people of this nation and making government decisions. Once the people elect a leader they do not have the power to remove the leader from their government positions and replace them with a new leader. panel 4 Social Contract In the......

The Letter a

...I constructed the letter A. The way I built my letter resembled an isoceles triangle. My letter has two sides that are the same length and two of base angles are the same in length. The definintion of an isoceles triangle is a triangle with two sides of equal length and two congruent base angles. The letter A I built and isoceles triangle are almost a perfect match. Another geometry concept that connectes with my letter, A was an acute angle. An acute angle is an angle that is less than 90 degrees. The triangle inside the letter A I constructed has an acute angle. The triangle has 3 angles that are acute all are less than 90 degrees and will add up to 180 degrees. The final concept I thought my letter connects with is parallel lines. The two lines in the center of the letter A are parallel to eachother, the two lines will never cross eachother or intersect. Parallel lines are lines in a plane that will not touch, cross, or intersect even when the lines are extended. The two lines in the center are not the only ones that are parallel to each other, the one line on top of my letter and the other thats on the bottom are also parallel. Those are the three geometry concepts I thought my letter connected with. My first semester of geometry did not go as well as I would have liked it to go. I failed most of the tests and quizzes because I was not responsible and did not do the homework assigned and study the reviews given. Despite all my failures this semester I always went to......
