Starting as a political upheaval of the thirteen colonies against the British Empire, the American Revolution led to the creation of the United States as an independent state. But it was also an social and political upheavals elsewhere, especially in Europe. The American Revolution had a major influence on the French Revolution which influenced the 19th century Europe by giving rise to demands for political and social changes. The Stamp Act 1765, passed by the British Parliament in 1765 was the first tax imposed on the British colonies in North America. The tax printed material including newspapers, magazines, legal documents, insurance policies and many other types of paper material was to help the British troops in the colonies. But the British also reduced their debt which increased after the French and Indian Wars . The colonists were outraged because they had no say in the taxes that were to be imposed on them and how the raised money was to be spent. Britain repealed the Act in 1766 but as it would later turn out, the American Revolution had already begun. The Boston Massacre was between the British soldiers and a crowd of colonists in Boston, Massachusetts. It took place on March 5, 1770, when a group of nine British soldiers opened fire on the crowd, killing five and wounding six men. The commander of the watch and his eight soldiers were arrested by the next morning which partly relieved the tensions in the city. But a series of pamphlets depicting British soldiers shooting on a group of colonists further increased anti-British sentiment in the colonies. On December 16, 1773, a group of about 70 men boarded on three British ships in the Boston harbor and threw their tea cargo in the sea. The destruction of the tea cargo was a protest against the Tea Act which was passed by the British Parliament earlier that year and gave the British East India Company monopoly on tea sale in the colonies. The incident, known as the Boston Tea Party triggered a chain of events that directly led to the American War of Independence. In response to the Boston Tea Party, the British Parliament passed a series of laws that came to be known as Intolerable Acts or Coercive Acts. These closed the Boston harbor for all shipping until the city would pay for the destroyed tea cargo, limited political authority of the colonists, made legal persecution of British officials more difficult and extended the boundaries of the Quebec province to the lands claimed by the American colonists. But rather than disciplining the colonists, the Intolerable Acts only made them more determined to defend their rights and liberties against the British Empire. On September 5, 1774, delegates from 12 colonies met at the First Continental Congress to discuss how to react to the Intolerable Acts. They decided to boycott British goods and ban the export of American goods to Britain if the Intolerable Acts would not be repealed. In order to carry out the boycott, the delegates also established the Continental Association and called for the Second Continental Congress that was to be held if their protest would not achieve the desired effect. And so it happened. But by the time the delegates met at the Second Continental Congress, the War of the American Independence was at the point of no return. On the evening of April 18, 1775, the British governor of Massachusetts sent several hundred British troops to seize the colonists’ military stores at Concord. The British intentions were soon discovered by the Patriot colonists who decided to prevent the British from carrying out their plan. Local militiamen gathered at Lexington to intercept the British troops. These managed to repulse the outnumbered militiamen in early morning of April 19 and then proceeded towards Concord.…
R. Williams Construction v. OSHRC
What was the legal issue in this case?
This case was a review of citations for violations of several OSHA standards mandated for construction contractors that R. Williams Construction (Williams or the Company) had been cited for.

additionally included American Indians under the term. Arthur de Gobineau defined the extent of the Mongolian race, "by the yellow the Altaic, Mongol, Finnish and Tartar branches". Later, Thomas Huxley used the term Mongoloid and included American Indians as well as Arctic Native Americans. Other nomenclatures were proposed, such as Mesochroi (middle color), but Mongoloid was widely adopted.
In 1940, anthropologist Franz Boas included the American race as part of the Mongoloid…
Tolkien’s Beautiful Imagination
“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” These words were wisely spoken by J. R. R. Tolkien, who is one of the most renowned writers in the world. Authoring classic fantasy works likeThe Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion during the mid-1900s, Tolkein had risen to great fame, however fame is not what he valued most. Because his life experiences inspired his writings, his beloved tales include…
"The R-Virus claims its first victim." I glance at the title, briefly considering clicking it before I pass over it. There will probably be a recap of the whole thing on the front page once it blows over in a few days anyway.
