After reading these pages I have noticed that Molly McNamara isn’t an evil person after all. When I read the first two sections of the book I thought she was an evil woman. She was the one who sent Bud and Danny to go steal the only blue tongued voles left in the entire world form the Amazing Kingdom of Thrills. She caused a big worry for everybody at the amusement park at shot the two guys, Bud in the hand and Danny in the foot, for no reason I really thought she was just a horrible person, but after reading these pages I’ve noticed she had a reason to steal the voles. She is part of an organization named the Mothers of Wilderness, which is basically an organization against cruelty to animals. She stole the voles because she says that keeping them in a closed up place and not letting them live in the wild is cruel for the animals. Even if her intentions are good sometimes, I still believe she is a bad person. She keeps threatening Bud and Danny to keep them as her “slaves” for example she tells Bud and Danny that if they don’t do what she asks them to do she will turn them in to the authorities and get the reward from Francis X Kingsbury who is the owner of the Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, which is very mean to do since she is the one who send them to steal the voles in the first place. In these pages we have Joe Winder who is an employee at the Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, learns from his girlfriend Nina that a man pretending to be doctor Koocher, who is the vole doctor at the Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, called to meet at a bridge to talk about something. Nina…
1) Canada’s military had a major role in the WWI. Battles like, Vimy Ridge, The Somme, Ypres and the Passchendale gave them the reputation for bravery and determination. In the battles of Ypres, the Canadian soldiers showed their bravery by not backing out by the new weapon that the Germans used, the Chlorine Gas, whereas all the other troops backed out. Canadian soldiers still fought even though the gas was very dangerous. They used many tactics to fight this new weapon. The Canadian military surely…
The Battle of Gettysburg
The American Civil War started in 1861because the Northern and Southern part of the United States fought for westward expansion and slavery. When Abe Lincoln was elected in the election of 1860, it caused seven states to secede or leave the South. Four more states joined them and left after the first shots of the Civil War. Four years of fighting took place in battles like Bull Run, Antietam, and Chancellorsville. I stopped at Chancellorsville because the next battle is…
Battle of Gettysburg
In the summer of 1863, both the north and south were dealing with problems all their own. In the north, with presidential elections right around the corner, there was the possibility that that a pro-peace president might be elected who would be willing to let the southern states split in return for an end to the war. In the south, it was becoming increasingly difficult to find supplies, weapons, fighting men and even shoes, to maintain the war effort. According to the author…
The battle of Passchendaele
• Officially known as the Third Battle of Ypres, Passchendaele became infamous not only for the scale of casualties, but also for the mud.
• Ypres was the principal town within a salient (or bulge) in the British lines and the site of two previous battles: First Ypres (October-November 1914) and Second Ypres (April-May 1915). ]
• The flatness of the plain made stealth impossible: as with the Somme, the Germans knew an attack was imminent and the initial bombardment…

An Examination of the Effects of War Displayed in Vern Theissen’s “Vimy”
Often when we hear the word “war”, the first things that come to mind are guns and violence. Rarely do we think of the effects of war. Participating in war can leave a lasting impact on the soldiers who are fighting. The play Vimy, by Vern Theissen, exemplifies how the negative effects of WWI are not only physical, but also, emotional and mental, thereby…

My essay is about Vimy Ridge and how it affected Canada. Located in a northern region of France known as Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Vimy Ridge was the site where Canada won one of its greatest battles. The Vimy Ridge battle began on April 9th, 1917 and ended on April 12th, 1917. Winning this battle earned Canada a reputation for deploying new “thorough” tactics which became the foundation for future victories. Canada won a battle that no one expected Canada to win…
say September 11, 2001, June 6, 1944, otherwise known as D-day,or
December 7, 1941, otherwise known as Pearl Harbor. Although all of these
occurrences were extremely tragic, the bloodiest time in American history is the
Battle of Antietam.
The battle of Antietam is a three part battle, consisting of The Cornfield,
The Sunken Road, and Burnside Bridge. After Confederate general Robert E. Lee
brought his troops into Maryland, which is Union soil, Union General George B.
McClellan launched attacks at Lee’s…
fully deployed. In the north, the British 5th Army was virtually destroyed by two major offensive operations, Michael and Georgette around the Somme. A third offensive launched in May against the French between Soissons and Reims, known as the Third Battle of the Aisne, saw the Germans reach the north bank of the Marne river at Château-Thierry, 95 kilometres (59 mi) from Paris, on 27 May. Two U.S. Army divisions, the 2nd and the 3rd, were thrown into the Allied effort to stop the Germans. On 31 May…
Overall comments: need to tie narrative to terms/concepts from the book.
Should stratify comments into uncontrollable and controllable forces. (like Todd did)
Although Blue Ridge Restaurants had success with expansion and joint ventures in Australia, the UK, France, Italy, Brazil and Hong Kong through 1987, many differing factors were at play when Yannis Costas evaluated the market and strategy for the Spain in the 1ate 1990s. Factors described by D. A. Ball, et al, 1, considered relevant in…
