While educating myself, focus will be on addressing medical concerns and necessary treatment before entering back into the workforce. The medical concerns that I am currently being seen for are as follows: Condition Treatment PTSD Group Therapy Session Right Knee Physical Therapy Sleep Apnea Sleep Doctor Bladder Control Occupational…

    In May 1989, the claims of the conspirators began to fall apart as soon as the people around Bush began talking. The Secret Service spoke first and an agent proclaimed Bush had not left the country. News accounts also proved Rupp and Brenneke’s claims improbable. Using the Secret Service accounts and news reals, Bush is publicly accounted for “down to the hour.” On October seventeenth, he campaigned for Reagan in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. On the Nineteenth, he had a campaign speech at…

    Historians Philip Jenkins and Matthew Dallek offer differing views on the achievements completed during Ronald Reagan’s presidency. While both historians do not seem to have liked president Ronald Reagan much, they base their suggestions about his presidency’s results on at least partially historically defensible claims. Although I understand why both historians said what they did based on historical facts from Reagan’s presidency, I find myself agreeing with Philip Jenkins’s statement of…

That being said, as it propagates across the globe its brevity is shrinking and it continues to find its way into news headlines and into the history books.

The 1980s was a time period where terrorist adopted many of their tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) that are still used today. 1983 was a particularly…
