When George Washington was inaugurated in 1789, he faced three major problems in the uprising of the United States. He faced, the huge debt from the Revolution against Great Britain, avoiding any future wars with foreign affairs, and trying to open a successful trading market. To make these major decisions for the country Washington assigned Thomas Jefferson (as Secretary of State) and Alexander Hamilton (as Secretary of Treasury) into is Cabinet. The country was in a huge amount of debt from the recent Revolution against Great Britain, and Washington had to make a decision between Jefferson’s and Hamilton’s financial plan. With all the evidence Jefferson pointed out to Washington about raising taxes and becoming similar to the nation that we just defeated in a seven year war, Washington decided, Hamilton’s financial plan would benefit the country in the long run. Hamilton’s plan consisted of a debatable tax on whiskey and the Bank of the United States. Wanting to have the country remain in a calm and peaceful manner, Washington issued a Proclamation of Neutrality to keep the country from heading into another war with Great Britain and France. The next thing that Washington did to remain neutral within this war was sending the Jay’s Treaty (with Great Britain) to the Senate for consent, to remove British troops from the Great Lakes forts. During all this chaos, in New Orleans, the Pickney’s Treaty was passed for the trade of western settlers. This treaty…
George Gershwin was a famous composer of Tin Pan Alley. The first website I went to for him (gershwin.com) opens with a stage and a sample of the music he composed. George dropped out of school at age 15, which is when he pursued his music career but he fell in love with piano at age 11. He was taught by a man named Charles Hambitzer who referred to George as a “genius.” He worked with multiple other teachers such as; Henry Cowell, Wallingford Riegger, Edward Kilenyi and Joseph…

I know George Washington would have agreed with the United States declaration of war against Germany. I think that most people would want to do the same when things are happening to your country and its citizens. He would not just sit there and let the citizens of America die and let other countries break international rules which could harm Americans.
Although some people would disagree there are some good reasons for fighting in the war and one of them is the sinking of the Lusitania which was…

George and Views
We ﬁrst meet George at the Bertolini during dinner. He is introduced to both the
reader and to Charlotte and Lucy by his father, who shouts across the table ‘This is my
son...he has a view, too’. This is signiﬁcant because the ‘view’ throughout the novel is used
as a motif for someone whose personal outlook on Edwardian life is different to that which
Lucy has experience. In this novel if someone has a view they tend to be youthful, vibrant
and have a lust for life that…
In the paragraph Dying Metaphors, George Orwell states that "…there is a huge dump of worn-out metaphors which have lost all evocative power and are merely used because they save people the trouble of inviting phrases for themselves." I believe that this is completely true but I do not agree with the reasoning behind why people these days do not make their own. I think that the reason people do not use or make there own metaphors that much or the metaphors that he stated in he…
