I am currently persuing a degree in Elementary Education and I wanted to share some of my homework with The Deal Is group! This is a summary I had to write regarding a webpage I critiqued and summarized about Abraham Lincoln…
The article is about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln who was shot in the back of the head while at a theater in 1865. Initially, there was a plan to kidnap Mr. Lincoln, a plan that was devised by John Wilkes Booth. The plan was to use Mr. Lincoln and two other high profile officials as leverage to free the confederate prisoners of war. For some unclear reason the kidnapping turned into a triple murder attempt of which only Mr. Lincoln died. The two co-conspirators George Atzerodt and Lewis Powell surrender to the authorities. However, Booth and his friend David Herold hid away for twelve days until they were found. At which time Herold surrenders and Booth is shot as the building he is in burns to the ground. The living assassins and co-conspirators were later hanged.
The webpage does a nice job of illustrating what happened the night of Mr. Lincoln’s death and why it happened. Although I think they could have been more specific as to how this plan turned from a simple kidnapping to a mass murder attempt, there are no supporting statements in the article as to why that occurred. The article also talks about a friend of Mr. Booth’s being with him as he fled the scene but they do not state the significance of this friend or what his place is in the story-why was he with Mr. Booth? Why did he flee with Mr. Booth?
The timeline made mention of a military commission a term with which I was not previously familiar. I now know what it means and by what I’ve read online regarding military commissions the use of such commissions is controversial today and has been since the 19th century. The timeline at the bottom of the page is helpful in picking out events of a specific time as opposed to finding that information in the aforementioned text. However, I noticed that the timeline events were not all included in the article and I found that interesting.
There was a car fire in University Place, WA this morning around 7:30am. I was driving to my class at the Tacoma Community College when I happened upon this car fire. The fire department was in route and it did not appear anyone was hurt. The driver could not be found and the bystanders were the ones who reported the fire to 911. The car involved was a late model VW Beetle. Looks like it may have been an electrical issue as the fire seemed to be coming from the front end, or perhaps they failed to put oil in it and had an engine fire, something that I will be experiencing soon if I don’t get the Jeep in to be serviced!
Lola is the name and playing around is the game! Lola is now 9 weeks and she really enjoys chewing on her Virbac chews from the vet. You can see her here hangin’ out with her brother Ranger just enjoying her little doggie life.
August 4th 2012 – Apache Helicopter takes flight..
So I was shopping for dinner at University Place Fred Meyer today in the 82 degree heat! We came outside and to my dismay there was a yellow lab panting and trying to get some fresh air from the 2 inch crack in the window of the green Mercury Mountaneer he was locked inside.
I went inside to let the staff know and they said that policy does not allow them to do anything about it so I called 911. I had to wait on the non emergency line for 13:44 mins before they picked up.
They agreed they would send a car out but from the time I noticed the dog until I got through to 911 it was almost 30 minutes. We need more resources in this city, I’m beginning to think that partnering with Lakewood has made a negative impact on our emergency services. I know this was “just a dog” but I’m hopeful that this is not the response time we see if humans need assistance here in U.P. due to all forces are fighting crime in Lakewood. The best thing I think we can do as citizens is make sure that we are properly taking care of our animals in hot weather such as we are having right now. NEVER leave your dog in the car!! It only takes minutes for the inside of a car to reach well above 100 degrees when it is 82 degrees outside. Just be smart people and leave Fido at home during hot days.
