    Law and Justice – Roman Constitution – 11.4 Debate: When is Political Violence Justified?

    >>>>Sic semper tyrannis — “Thus always to tyrants.” It’s a slogan that’s been used by those like John Wilkes Booth, who committed acts of political violence that they believed were carried out in the name of protecting liberty. The assassins of Tiberius Gracchus believe that they were acting to preserve the Republic, that they were simply killing a dangerous demagogue who had risen to power by promising to confiscate land and redistribute property to the poor, and was willing to violate fundamental tenants of the Roman Republican Constitution to do so. And so it raises perennial questions. When, if ever, is political violence justified? Was the murder of Tiberius Gracchus…

    Universal Newsreel Volume 40, Release 24, 03/21/1967 (Vietnam excerpt)

    A battalion of U.S. First Air Cavalry clashes with North Vietnamese regulars in a central coastal plain near Bong Son. Heavy and accurate sniper fire, zeroed in by telescopic sights, keeps our forces pinned down and dug in. Supporting fire from airmobile gunships helps to drive off the Cong, estimated to number about 150. After the fighting, copters put down to evacuate the wounded. Two Americans were listed as dead. One was a machine gunner and the second, his company commander, who took over the machine gun from his fallen comrade and was killed himself. Thirteen GIs were wounded. Four enemy soldiers were counted among the casualties.

    Pauline Slot: Interventions to support professionals regarding inclusiveness and multilingualism

    So these were mostly professionals working in early childhood education and care or in primary schools, so this was actually the majority of the professionals that were involved in these programs and we only saw that there was a minority working in NGOs or in the Social Work sector. In general, we noticed that the majority of programs focused on enhancing professionals’ knowledge and skills, especially when these were very universal programs so not targeted at specific groups of children or groups of families and we also noticed that the interventions that were focused specifically on disadvantadge families more often included a focus on attitudes as well and I really…

    Fernando Santos reaction to FIFA Confederations Cup Official Draw

    Your first impression on the draw and on what you’re expecting at next year’s Confederations Cup. The teams are very different, from different continents, and there are three different cities, which means we’re going to have to travel a lot. That’s the only drawback, or one of the drawbacks. It looks like a tough group. There’s Russia, who are at home and will be one of the favourites. They’ll really want to win, for the reasons we saw today, and that makes them very strong opponents. There’s Mexico, who are the only team here who’ve won it before. They’re sure to be looking for a second win. They’ve got a…

    WWI Battle of Mons Where Soldiers Claimed Divine Intervention

    [MUSIC PLAYING] Throughout history, people have reported the presence of divine defenders, angels protecting them or fighting for them in the middle of battle. One of the most famous examples of this potential intervention is in the Battle of Mons between the British and German forces during World War I. On August 23, 1914, the British army, with support from France, attacked the German army which had just declared war on them a few weeks before. Hopes were high that the fresh British troops would prevail, especially with help from the French. The Battle of Mons with the last in four skirmishes that were referred to as the Battles of…

    We Had The Most Epic Day At Universal Studios • Ladylike

    – I love theme parks. They are magical, beautiful places that are really good at shutting out all the garbage from the real world. The one downside is that it’s never possible to do everything you want in one day. (horn percussion) Or is it? Go! (scream-laughing) No, Jen, Jen, Jen, Jen, Jen! How are you supposed to drink this? (excited screams) (laughter) – Wait, I’m nervous. – It’s fine. It’s the ladylike show, and I’m challenging the girls to do as many things as possible in one day at Universal Studios Hollywood. (blam) (energized music) – I’ve done a theme park in one day, but none of the other…

    Cerebrovascular Surgery and Interventions Center | Boston Children’s Hospital

    Hey Macy. How are you? Good. So, I was just coming in to see how you’re feeling. How’d you do today? Good. Yeah? You were a superstar. You have the smartest-looking brain we’ve seen all week. One of the great things about having a Center for Cerebrovascular Disease here at Children’s is the ability to provide a sort of one-stop-shopping entity. Many times, the delivery of care for kids with these somewhat rare conditions is very fragmented. We’re really able to offer patients the entire array of options for treatment, and we’re not stuck on any one particular approach because that’s the expertise that we have. As an interventional neuroradiologist,…

    The Black Legend, Native Americans, and Spaniards: Crash Course US History #1

    Hi I’m John Green, and this is Crash Course U.S. History! No, Stan. That’s not gonna work, actually. I mean, we’re talking about the 16th century today, when this was neither united nor states. By the way, this globe reflects the fact that I believe that Alaskan statehood is illegitimate! In fact, we’re going to call this whole show “U.S. History” but inevitably it is going to involve other parts of the world and also, not to brag, a small part of the moon. Sorry, we can be a little bit self-aggrandizing sometimes, here in America. So to begin U.S. history, we’re not going to talk about the United states…
