...Luis Gonzalez Period 5 9/3/13 U.S HISTORY BIOGRAPHIES BENEDICT ARNOLD Benedict Arnold is the most well-known traitor of the American Revolutionary War. He would have been famous for his successful military actions, if he had not turned spy for the British. Arnold was born on January 14, 1741 in Norwich, Connecticut. In his early years, Benedict joined the army many times, yet always deserted his position. He was apprenticed to a pharmacist and later opened his own store. Arnold became very wealthy and was able to send merchant ships to Canada and the West Indies. When the war broke out between the colonies and England, Arnold, then captain of militia, thought that this was his chance to be famous, distinguished, and respected. After the Battle of Lexington and Concord, Benedict coerced authorities there into appointing him colonel. In exchange he promised to enlist and train men to capture Fort Ticonderoga. When he learned that Ethan Allen already made plans to do the same, Arnold demanded Allen to turn over command to him. Allen forcibly refused, but allowed him to come along. Arnold commanded troops and took the British garrison at St. Johns, Canada a few days following Allen's victory. Arnold and General Richard Montgomery led a failing attack on Quebec in December of 1775. Arnold was badly wounded and Montgomery was killed.

...What is a biography? A biography is a written account of the series of events that make up a person's life. Every student will write a biography at some point, but the level of detail and sophistication will differ. A fourth grade biography will be much different from a middle school-level biography or a high school or college-level biography. However, each biography will include the basic details. The first information you should gather in your research will include biographical details and facts. You must use a trustworthy resource to ensure that your information is accurate. Basic details include: * Date and place of birth and death * Family information * Lifetime accomplishments * Major events of life * Effects/impact on society, historical significance While this information is necessary to your project, these dry facts, on their own, don't really make a very good biography. Once you've found these basics, you'll want to dig a little deeper. You choose a certain person because you think he or she is interesting, so you certainly don't want to burden your paper with an inventory of boring facts. Your goal is to impress your reader! You'll want to start off with great first sentence. It's a good idea to begin with a really interesting statement, a little known fact, or really intriguing event. You should avoid starting out with a standard but boring line like: "Meriwether Lewis was born in Virginia in 1774." Instead, try starting with......

...Sheri Gualandi ECON111 Denise Stauthammer Biography November 9, 2014 Lower Gas Prices Possible Boost to the Economy The end of October 2014 brought with it lower gas prices for American consumers. It has been a very long time since gas prices have been below $3.00 per gallon at the pump and the benefits of the lower prices will help the American people from all walks of life ranging from people who live paycheck to paycheck, people on fixed incomes, and college students. The money saved from the lower gas prices will be an opportunity for people to spend more on things that may be considered little extras like dinner out, going to the movies, or taking in a concert. With the holiday months approaching, the extra money saved from not having to pay so much at the pump will allow for people to splurge and buy that special gift that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to. While the lower gas prices are helping American consumers, the oil industry is taking a hit due to the lower crude prices. These lower crude prices are also helping industries such as farmers, trucking companies, railroads, and airlines. Prices at the grocery store as well as many other retailers will decline because they will also save money with lower fuel surcharges that tend to fluctuate with the cost for fuel. Lower crude prices will also help consumers save money on home heating costs this winter which will translate into more extra spending. More spending will help our economy rebound even more...

The Rule of St. Benedict

...“The Rule of Saint Benedict” The spirit of St. Benedict's Rule is summed up in the motto of the Benedictine Confederation: pax ("peace") and the traditional ora et labora ("pray and work"). According to St. Benedict, these rules are guide for Christians who are committed in the monastic movement but it shouldn’t be viewed as an exclusively legal code though it includes prescriptions for living in a monastery. The Rule actually contains a treasure of spiritual wisdom concerning the monastic movement in the Church. If we practice these rule everyday of our lives then we are most likely living the way God wants us to by then we shall receive the Lord’s promise of eternal life. In the Rule's prologue, Benedict said he intended to prescribe "nothing harsh, nothing burdensome" for his followers. His approach to seeking God was both sensible and humane. For Benedict, a spiritual pathway was not one to be littered with weird and unusual practices; rather, all that is needed is to be faithful to finding God in the ordinary circumstances of daily life. How to prepare oneself for this simple-but not necessarily easy-way of life is the substance of the Rule. Benedict envisioned a balanced life of prayer and work as the ideal. Monastics would spend time in prayer so as to discover why they're working, and would spend time in work so that good order and harmony would prevail in the monastery. Benedictines should not be consumed by work, nor should they spend so much time in......

This is my first semester in college I am working towards obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting. I decided to go back to school because I was working for a company that went out of business and I found that I needed to get a degree in order to keep doing what I love doing most and that is working in an accounting office.

It was pretty intimidating for me to go through the enrollment process, because I kept questioning whether I could cut it this late in life. I am presently unemployed because the company I was working for went out of business. I previously worked for a full service restoration company (construction). I started out working as the administrative assistant for the CFO and from there I moved onto other positions. The position I loved doing the most was in the accounting office and that is the reason I decided to go back to school and get a degree in accounting.

The Rule of Benedict

...Benedict: The Rule Context The Christian church has taken on a new social structure as a result of the peace of Constantine. The persecution has ceased and the church has become powerful as acceptance is found for the Christian. The church now becomes open to the influence of riches and comfortable living, and the theology of the church conforms taking on a structure like that of the imperial empire. Aristocracy and privilege is accepted within the church, which leads to lack of discipline. This opens the door to division and scrutiny within the church and its believers. The monastic movement comes as a result from this scrutiny. There are those who believe that that the current security and life of comfort are enemies of the church. They leave for the desert where they seek out a way of asceticism. Paul and Anthony were both monks who sought this life in the Egyptian desert, seeking solitude and a place away from the temptations and chaos. Two generations later Benedict, who was born to Roman aristocracy in the small town of Nursia in 480 A. D., is influenced by this same struggle and seeks to live in solitude. At the age of 20 he leaves the city and lives as a hermit for three years in a cave developing a following of people seeking the same discipline and structure. He builds a monastery in Monte Cassino, where they can practice asceticism. Benedict’s rule is his structured framework for the monastic society. His rule proved to not be as harsh as the monks in......
