    During the 1920s, many events had taken place that have impacted American culture to this day. Some of these events include: the 1925 Scopes Trial, women’s suffrage and behavior, and the American film industry, too. The Scopes Trial brought about debates on evolution in schools, women’s rights are becoming more equal to those of men, and a revolution has begun in the American film industry. All of these events have had a lingering effect on how the American culture is today, and without them, things would probably be a lot different. Before the 1920s, most of the films created were based out of New york or New Jersey, and it was very rare for films to be shot anywhere else. Because of California’s warm year round weather and cheap land, many of the filmmakers had started to migrate West; the place they went to was known as Hollywood. As the 1920s had begun, Hollywood was prospering. Most, if not all, films were created there; it had become one of the most well-known film cities in the world. Hollywood had started to flourish in America and became the nation’s fifth leading industry. Another thing that had started to rise was the attendance rates at movies.

The reason behind the spike in attendance was the increase in luxury at the movie theaters; they went from original neighborhood buildings, to buildings with comfortable chairs, velvet curtains, and nice carpets. There was a significant change in the…

    sources used to support the arguments and facts about the life of Bates. Continuing this trend, the analysis on her personal life and more so the in-depth analysis on her contributions to the movement especially her involvement in the NAACP make this source a strong contribution. One weakness of this novel is its lack of attention to other important players in Daisy Bates’s life, such as the Little Rock Nine. Both had drastic influences on each other, but this source pays little to no attention…

    Who Is Wal-Mart Stores?

    It is interesting to hear how Wal-Mart stores began as I was not aware of the history of how the company had grown to the large retail and wholesale giant they are today. There is a definite relationship between economies of scale and the success they business has accrued. Because they purchase enormous quantities of products for resale, the cost for the consumer is much lower; therefore, creating the competitive market advantage (Thomas & Maurice, 2010). Personally, I can’t think of many…
