The Food Industry

When deciding what to eat, people should take all these things deeply into account. The cleanliness of the workers handling our food is just as important as the cleanliness of the food itself. Just as how we're taught at a young age to wash our hands before eating we can see how the conditions of those handling food can affect our health. Yes, we should consider the worker.

Workers who pick, process, and transport our food should have a reasonable pay, because they are taking risks everyday. Their job consist on manuring sharp tools, and dangerous machinery.

A Word for the Wolrd

June 4 ,1919

Dear Citizens of America,

We were once innocents wowens who would let men control us and our government. But now, it's finally over!

A few months back I founded the National Woman Suffrages Association, also known as the NWSA. So we ,womens, could fight for our freedom. So we can finally be self-governed.

It all started when we, the NWSA, organised a parade to show everyone in Washington, including the President, that us woman want equal rights to men. Anyone could join. And like always, men took over and distroyed our parade.

But we didn't give up!

We stood in front of the White House for nights and days, holding provocative posters. We hoped for a reaction from the President. But all he did was throw all woman procrastinating in prison.

Lot's of NWSA volunteers were taken. I couldn't let them suffer in prison when I was the one who started all this. So I did what was right and got caught procrastinating.

Once in prison, we were treated like criminals. I decided to go on a food strike to defend this cause, and others fallowed so we could prove our point. The guards eventually started to force feed us. After sixty days of prison, we were free to go.

On this day, a vote was made. We finally won!

We finally ended womens suffrages in the United States of America!

"Hugging a Delusion"

A women, on a rocking chair, is hugging "the ballet".

The ballet represents the 19th Amendment, that says "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

This political cartoon shows that some thought that woman would never attain suffrage and during the Progressive Era, many Americans struggled for equality.

After decades of effort, women won the right to vote. Yet African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, and religious minorities faced discrimination in society and the work place.

The US Wins Again!

NY journal and NY world are supporting Cuba's revolt against Spain by posting scandalous stories and shocking illustration about Spain.

Word says that Spain refused Cuba's independence and that lead to the United States to declare War!

They sended troops over and captured Santiago and sunk lot's of Spanish fleet. Spain could't fight anymore, they were too weak. Spain eventually gave up Cuba.

While Puerto Rico and Guam remained US property, even though it cost them about two hundred and fifty million dollars and two thousand soldiers.

President Wilson prepared the nation's industries for war. Congress created hundreds of administrative boards for industrial, agricultural production and distribution.

One of these administration was the Wilson administration who created agencies to manage and increase food productions.

Herbert Hoover, the 31st President of the United States, led the food administration with "Food Can Win the War" as his slogan. His goal was to increase crops productions and conserve food supplies for military and american allies. He later asked Americans to plant vegetables in the "victory garden" and urged them to eat less by participating in "meatless Mondays" and "wheatless Wednesdays".

"A Message from the Ministry of Homeland Security"

This poster illustrates the Sedition Act. Americans believed it violated their first amendment rights, such as freedom of speech. While others believed the act protected the country from terrorists and government spys. It would prevent civil war from happening.


Peace Without Victory

Wilson's plan for world war peace was called the Fourteen points. The fifth to eighth points dealt with self-determination, the right for people to decide their own political status.

For example, President Woodrow Wilson wanted the different ethnic groups within Austria-Hungary to be able to form their own Nation.

The leaders of the allies dominated the negotiations. This leaders were the President Woodrow Wilson of the United States, British prime minister David Lloyd George, French premier Georges Clemenceau, and Italian prime minister Victorio Orlando. They were known as the Big Four. Germany and other Central Powers were not invited to participate.

Steamboat Willie

Steamboat Willie is a 1928 American animated short film directed by Walt Disney. It was produced in black and white by Walt Disney Studios and was released by Celebrity Productions. The cartoon is considered the debut of Mickey Mouse, although the character appeared several months earlier in a test screening. Steamboat Willie was the third of Mickey's films to be produced, but was the first to be distributed because Walt Disney had committed himself to producing the first fully synchronized sound cartoon.

The film is especially notable for being the first Disney cartoon with synchronized sound, including character sounds and a musical score. Disney understood from early on that synchronized sound was the future of film. Steamboat Willie was the first cartoon to feature a fully post produced soundtrack which distinguished it from earlier sound cartoons. Steamboat Willie would become the most popular cartoon of it's day.

The usic for Steamboat Willie was arranged by Wilfried Jackson and Bert Lewis. It included the songs "Steamboat Bill", a composition popularized by baritone Arthur Collins, and "Turkey in the Straw" , a composition popularized within minstrelsy during the 19th century. The title of the film is a parody of the Buster Keaton film Steamboat Bill Jr. itself. A reference to the song by Collins. Walt Disney performed all of the voices in the film, although there is little intelligible dialogue.

While the film received some criticism, it has also received wide critical acclaim, not only for introducing one of the world's most popular cartoon character, but for it's technical innovation. In 1994 members of the animation field voted Steamboat Willie 13th in the book "The 50 Greatest Cartoon".
