“The Actions of Von Papen and Hindenburg were the main reason why Hitler became chancellor” how far do you agree with this statement?

I partly agree with this statement but not 100% in the next few paragraphs I will explain to you why. Firstly the main reason in which I think Hitler became chancellor was because of the depression, Hitler gained 33% of the votes in 1932, this was a third of the votes making the Nazi party the largest party in Germany, however this didn’t mean that Hitler could become chancellor because he didn’t have the majority of the votes, even though Hitler wasn’t chancellor because of the votes I believe that Hindenburg and Von Papen were starting to consider him. In the early years of the Nazi party they only gained 12 seats and 810,000 votes this meant they were only the 7th largest party in the Germany (before the depression) but then in 1932 the party gained 230 seats and 13.7 million votes making them the biggest party in Germany(after the depression). The reason that the Nazi gained all these votes was because during the depression the working class were mostly voting communist and this would make the middle class angry and not wanting to lose there money so they voted for a party that would get rid of the communists and that would be the Nazi. The second reason why was because Von Papen being the adviser to Hindenburg was good friends with Hitler. Von Papen told Hindenburg that he would create a new government and allow Hitler to become chancellor with his party taking only two seats in the cabinet ( police force and the army) but then Von Papen would become the vice-chancellor. When showing Hindenburg that this government was working Hindenburg would make Hitler chancellor in 1933. To conclude with I think the rise of the Nazi was more of the reason why Hitler became chancellor but I do think the statement is partly true because Hitler wouldn’t have become chancellor if he didn’t have Von Papen on his side.…...

The American Dream Essay

...Dream is much more diverse than it used to be. In the past, this Dream meant owning the most land, or having the most slaves, or winning the most wars. Now it means so much more. Many find the American Dream to be about achieving the most fame and glory in their lifetime. Thousands upon thousands of people post videos of themselves on the popular video-sharing website YouTube singing or doing insane stunts in hopes of becoming famous or that they might become the next Justin Bieber. Many people are still in favor of the idea of money as a symbol of success, but in recent years, as exemplified by television shows, movies and music, society has begun to consider happiness as more about living a simple, easygoing life. Consider this quote by Zac Brown, lead singer of his self-titled country band: “It's funny how it’s the little things in life that mean the most. Not where you live or what you drive or the price tag on your clothes.…” (Brown) In Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr (more famously known as T.I.)’s song “Live Your Life”, he encourages people to “just live your life, instead of chasing… paper.” A prevalent concept sweeping the nation is that in order to truly be happy and achieve the “American Dream”, a person has to stop living by societal norms, go out, and live his or her individual dream. An example of this idea of individualism is the now-famous concept of “YOLO”, which is an abbreviation for “you only live once”. The concept behind the phrase, which was originally......

Case Study: Student with Special Needs

...achieve and do all that he or she may want to do today as they may not have the same capabilities or abilities to do them at a later date. Last year my current school enrolled a student name Zac that many did not know at the time was diagnosed and living with Multiple Sclerosis. Although he walked on the tips of his toes, it was not alarming to any faculty or staff member that taught or held a vested interest in him. However, as the school year drew to a close, Zac began to miss several consecutive days from school and eventually was being transported to and from his classes in a wheelchair. When school year commenced, Zac continued to require the use of the wheelchair as a means to be mobile. As school began for the current school term, Zac returned in the wheelchair. Over the summer months, Zac’s Multiple Sclerosis (MS) had worsened which has left him totally dependent on the wheelchair for mobility. Although in the previous year Zac had several teachers, paraprofessionals, the nurse as well as other staff members assisting him with learning maneuver the chair, due to budget cuts, several positions were cut. At which point, a plan had to be devised determining those that would be responsible for assisting him with moving about the school’s campus, and getting to class and lunch. Zac did not require any assistance with toileting until he had fallen while in the restroom and was not able to get himself up off of the floor. Because he had gone to the restroom......

Case Project Chapter 6

... Renton Tractor Company To Whom it May Concern, As shown by the data I have enclosed, the most recent year at Renton Tractor Company has been the most profitable year since the company has been in business. In Zac Dalton’s first year as manager, the company saw the highest amount of sales in units with the least amount of units produced. With this being the case, he was most likely correct in his claim of clearing out old inventory. The income statement that showed the loss absorbed the cost of the excess inventory at the time of sale. However, when we apply the cost of the excess inventory during the year it was produced, we get a better snapshot of what the sales portion of the business looks like. In 2010 and 2011, the business was producing more than they were selling. This created a higher break-even point which was not met either year. In 2012, since there wasn’t as much produced, there was a lower break-even point and Renton sold 808 units over the break-even point. This level of sales helped to create a contribution margin of 73%, a 21% increase from 2012. Not only was 2012 the most profitable year Renton has seen since they have been in business, it was the first year the company exceeded its break-even point in unit and dollar sales. Zac Dalton is correct in his claims that operations have improved. The company is doing better in unit sales and contribution margin has increased dramatically since he has taken over the business. However, since......

...has seemingly overnight become indispensable. Millions of people use it daily in more than 100 languages and have come to regard Google and the Internet as one. The quest for immediate information on anything and everything is satisfied by ‘googling’ it on a computer or cell phone. Men, women and children have come to rely so heavily on Google that they cannot imagine how they ever lived without it.” —D avid Vise and Mark Malseed 3) Strange as it may sound considering the fact Google is today worth more than Disney and General Motors combined, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the two young co-founders of Google never actually set out to change the world. When the company was founded in 1998, it didn’t even have a business plan or a definitive business strategy. Instead, all Brin and Page had was an intense desire to do something innovative and to create a workplace where the best and brightest people could do some fun stuff. 4) Sergey Brin was born in Moscow, Russia on August 21, 1973. At age six, his parents emigrated from Russia to America to escape anti-Semitism and in search of greater freedom and opportunities. Sergey’s parents are both highly educated. His mother is now an accomplished scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center while his father teaches math at the University of Maryland. As a result, a good education is highly valued in the Brim household. Sergey received an undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland at age 19 with honors in math and computer......

De ce fait, une partie non fondue des pièces, au voisinage du métal liquide, est portée à des températures comprises, suivant la distance à ce dernier, entre la température du solidus du métal et la température initiale des pièces ; la fraction de ce volume (la plus proche du métal fondu) dont la structure et, donc, les propriétés évoluent du fait de cet échauffement est appelée « zone affectée par la chaleur » (ZAC) ou « zone thermiquement affectée » (ZTA).

...Anthem 1. A rousing or uplifting song identified with a particular group, body, or cause. With arching melodies, epic guitar riffs and rhythms inciting you to put your hands in the air, anthems give us a soundtrack to life’s defining moments. And for HANSON, their sixth studio album ANTHEM marks the beginning of their third decade of making music together. Over their first 20 years, brothers Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson have made their mark. Five years building a fanbase as an independent band led to a meteoric rise with the 1997 international smash single MMMBop from their debut album Middle Of Nowhere. A long line of hits, four more studio albums, multiple Grammy nominations and over 16 million album sales followed. Over their second decade, the band charted their own course running an independent label while maintaining a coveted connection with their global fanbase, and in 2007 they launched a grassroots campaign to support poverty and HIV/AIDS relief in Africa (TakeTheWalk.net). Set for release in the US in June followed by worldwide release and a coordinated world tour, the bands sixth studio album ANTHEM is an album that celebrates the power of music to ignite passion and bring people together. “We have always been in awe of the ability music has to engage people, whether it’s a song that makes you want to dance, or a song that inspires you to take action for a cause. We want this record to be the anthem for all of those moments”, says Taylor. Following two years...

...Assignment 1 (20%, due 8:55 am Friday 13 March) Question 1. Zac Zaccary is a senior analyst, and your manager, at Top Notch Fund Managers. He, gently, throws a copy of the 2014 annual report of The Warehouse Group Limited on to your desk and states “the Five Year Summary shows that profit after tax increased from $60 million in 2010 to $78 million in 2014, but they also report an ‘adjusted’ net profit which decreased from $83 million to $61 million over the same period. As investors, which figure should we pay attention to? At the same time, operating cash flow decreased from $129 million to $77 million over the same period. I wonder what has caused that? I would like you to look at profitability, cash flow and liquidity.” He continues “The group made some big acquisitions in the last couple of years. How well are those turning out? Retailers’ operating margins are always pretty small, and if the new acquisitions are not profitable, they can drag the whole group down. Have the managers been able to protect or improve profits from the older stores and also get good results from the new businesses? And how is the efficiency of operations trending?” Required: A fund operated by Top Notch Fund Managers is a potential substantial investor in The Warehouse Group, and Zac must advise the fund managers whether to invest.

...successfully located the gay gene! Yippieee!” “Excellent, we will begin insertion immediately, this is going to be even bigger then the new Justin Spears CD!” Perez replies gleefully. The insertion is a process that all new born babies must go through where they will be given the gay gene so that they grow up to be gay. A large island just east of Jamaica, Efronia (named after the gay god Zac Efron), has been built as the fabulous Eden for the gays to flock during the eradication. Once everyone is safely corn-holed inside Efronia the rest of the world will be destroyed by nuclear warfare, effectively eliminating the parasite that has been ravaging the planet, the straight man. Our story leaps ahead years after the Eradication… the insertion is working perfectly and Perez, who is now known as His Fabulousness, looks at his land of Efronia, and it is good. The sky has been changed so it is constantly changing colors like a rainbow, the roads are painted yellow and made of brick, in honor of Judy Garland, who is studied in school as a hero of the old world. All intersections in Efronia have a statue of Zac Efron, whom which the land is named. Robots do any sort of labor, therefore everything is free, there is not even a form of currency in Efronia. The only worry on anyone’s mind is making sure they keep their lube stocks from going too low, lest they have to give up an opportunity.

...in the play to demonstrate that love must be ‘hard won.’ Roy then gives in to the proposal and begins to convulse on the stage floor. The use of slapstick comedy creates humour as well as concern for the patient as we consider the chance his behaviour might not be put on. The stage direction indicates that, “Lewis is concerned” and as an audience we share this concern and thus gain a greater insight of the harmful effects of treatment. (ZAC THE PIANIST) Nowra also conveys the neglect of mental institutes in their treatment of patients with psychotic drugs. This is notably seen in Zac the musician in the asylum. At one point in rehearsals he yells out on impulse, to no one in particular “Alright, I’ll get The Electronic Prunes album.” Through dialogue, Zac’s character is developed as impulsive and unreliable when under the influence of psychotic drugs, falling in and out of consciousness at intervals. Drugs even harm him to the extent that he cannot contribute to the performance of the play as he passes out from excessive drug consumption. Zac “On a much lower dosage” Shows how drugs can control the lives of the mental patients, creating empathy da da da da. “Oh. [A beat] Why?” The beat in the dialogue highlights Zac’s lack of thought process and control over human behaviour, due to drugs of course.

...users and what's good for Google. And Sergey Brin is finding that purity just doesn't scale. Governments, religious bodies, businesses, and individuals are all bearing down on the company, forcing Brin to make decisions that have an effect on the entire Internet. Sergey Brin (2002) expressed his views on such challenges, by stating, "Things that would normally be side issues for another company carry the weight of responsibility for us," during an interview. He also stated, "We didn't want to do anything rash," and "The situation over there is more complex than I had imagined." We study Google's action in several challenging situations such as: 1.
