A few years later, in 1910, Betty became the first woman to travel from New-York to San Francisco (six thousand miles). After the trip, Scott was accepted to be Glenn H.

The exact date of Scott’s first solo flight is unknown. It is recognized on September 6, 1910; so, it is conflicting whether Blanche Scott or Bessica Raiche was America’s first female aviator. She joined Glenn Curtiss’ Exhibition and made five thousand dollar a week. According to the Women’s Hall of Fame website, in 1911, Scott flew from Mineola, sixty miles before landing back at the field she came from.

    This is why they are known to be the "fathers of modern aviation." Thanks to the Wright brother, World War I was the first major conflict that airplanes were used on a large scale. At the beginning of the war, planes were very basic. The very first powered flight was back in 1903 when the Wright brother flew their own design. The first crossing of the English Channel was in 1909 by Louis Bleriot. (History.com) So it is safe to say that in 1914, airplanes were still very crude. It was not until…

    If I was Wilbur Wright I would had brought aboard subject matter experts like Curtiss. My approach would have been to set aside my need for greed and work towards my vision. As an Ethical leader I avoid falling into ethical traps like drive for success by evaluating whether or not a situation is unethical, unmoral or illegal. I use these questions as moral compass. An example would be when both another E-7 and I were our building packages for quarterly awards. The E-7 I was competing against was…

Anthony Perkins managed his mother’s motel that had become a ghost-town after the new highway had been build, which completely cut off access to the motel. Glenn Close…

    discover Greenwald’s personal interests as the author states it out right, discussing these matters and his beliefs of their importance outright. Glenn’s beliefs are echoed in the words of Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis when Greenwald quoted a statement in a case where Brandeis remarked that “the right to be left alone is the most comprehensive of rights, and the right most valued by a free people”16 this essentially summed up what appears to be Greenwald’s core view of Snowden’s case.…

    Another delicate nuance that I would like to consider about her marriage. In order to remarry she should probably discuss it with her only son, who by the way was the prince and could have his father’s throne. Neither the movie nor the text do not speak about it, but if we try to picture the possibility that they might have discussed her marriage, Hamlet definitely would oppose to her marriage plan, which after all Gertrude ignored, or perhaps she did not discuss it with Hamlet which she had…
