Kansas State Side Line Summary

Satisfactory Essays
Tales from the Kansas State Sideline My book report is over the book Kansas State Sideline. I was excited to read this book because I wanted to learn more about my favorite
NCAA team. I was skeptical at first because I've always seen them as this unstoppable force. After starting the book I came to realize how different the team and the entire campus was back then. As I read through the book I learned that at one point in the late 1980’s K-State was one of if not the worst team in the NCAA. The book begins with Stan Weber explaining just how bad K-State was at that time. Stan goes on to say that team was so bad that he and his partner David Smale weren't able to report on their own team. Stan and David were so desperate to talk about something

    Before the Civil War, the territory of Kansas was unsettled as a slave state or a free state. This caused a conflict over who should settle this territory, right before the Civil War. This conflict was also called “Bleeding Kansas”. Later on, popular sovereignty, played a key role before the Civil War.…

    No management position is easy these days. There are many rules and regulations to follow, as well as many responsibilities that grow more over time. One of the responsibilities as a manager is to improve efficiency of the company and extend customer satisfaction. Not only does this take money, but time, skill, and teamwork. As the manager of a busy call center, the call volume has increased so much that there is an extra $20,000 to spend on improving customer satisfaction and efficiency. How can this be spent wisely to reach these goals? Teamwork is top on the list of importance because without a team, there is no business. Teams provide many things to a health care facility, as well as any other successful business. Teams are used in many different ways in other industries, such as the military, for example. This sets examples for the health care industry as to how teams might be used similarly there compared to somewhere like the government jobs. However, nothing is easy like saying the alphabet. In any industry, conflict does arise, and having the knowledge of problem solving is very good to have in order to make an educated decision for the health care organization.…

    Bleeding kansas

    Many Kansans will certainly remember the years 1854 to 1861. It was filled with bloodshed, rebellious actions, lynching, and more bloodshed. The groups responsible for this viciousness were the ignorant pro-slavery and the anti-slavery clashing in their differences. Within a few months, Kansas was invaded by raids and riots from left and right. Stephan Douglass pushed for The Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 which allowed the territory of Kansas to decide whether it would be free territory or slave territory, a practice known as popular sovereignty. It was obvious this decision was not going to be fixed properly or peacefully. People from other states soon decided to invade in the discussions and cross over into Kansas Territory to try and fix the votes making Kansas pro-slavery. From the south came people called Border Ruffians who made this issue a lot more difficult than it should be. They began a lot of violence, such as the “Raid on Lawrence” in attempt to force the acceptance of slavery. Why do they feel the need to invade in issues that should not be their business? In May 1856, Ruffians crossed the border and looted and burned multiple buildings, this act kicked open the door to more violent acts. A few days later the anti-slavery supporters caused the Pottawatomie Creek Massacre. John Brown attacked a pro-slavery settlement, killing five of the men. This controversy and violence was so large and out of control that it was impossible for federal authorities to contain it.…

    After speaking with RA Ryan regarding duty night, I was able to get a better understanding of the responsibilities of an RA when he or she is doing rounds. Doing rounds is essential when it comes to keeping the residence halls safe for all students and creating a better atmosphere for everyone overall. Duty night is important because many issues are addressed, such as, drugs/alcohol on campus, intruders, loud music, lock outs or anything else that may disturb the community. It is important to keep the community in order because after all, the residence halls are the second homes of many students.…

    Why was there ever discrimination in schools in the U.S.A? The Little Rock nine is a great example of discrimination in the U.S. The Little Rock nine was a group of African American students that went to an all white high school. Students and parents were upset about them attending the high school so they protested outside of the high school; some students didn 't even come to school. The Little Rock nine still came to school every day knowing the trouble to come. The reason the nine students were sent to the school is because of the case Brown vs.…

    The First amendment of the Constitution of America calls for the protection of the United states citizens from the United States congress. It states that congress shall not pass any laws favoring a specific religious belief or stop any particular group from worshiping them. The first amendment also protects the United States citizen by allowing them freedom of speech/press and peaceful assembly or petition of the governments policies.(billofrightsInstitute) In 1984 Ronald Reagan was trying to run for his second term as president, however thousands of people gathered in front of the Dallas city hall to protest Reagan’s policies and in that crowd a protester named Gregory Lee Johnson. Johnson pulled a stunt that ended him up in the Dallas city court house convicting him to desecrating the U.S. flag. The Dallas city court’s decision was tried and took to the supreme court for Johnsons first amendment right being violated. The supreme court actually came to the decision that Johnson was protected by the first amendment. “After this decision by the supreme court, there has been six times the house of representatives have tried to vote a constitutional amendment known as Flag desecration amendment which stated “ congress shall have power to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag”. This amendment has not received the 67 votes it needs to pass but hasn’t been less than 63 voted for all six occasions” (billofrightsInstitute)…

These different systems are causing difficulties, which produces errors in reporting and argument between these branches. San Jose has a license for a fully integrated Windows system without application source code.

    The U.S code does state that the burning of the flag is illegal, however the United States Supreme Court has upheld, several times, that the burning of the the flag is a protected form of speech. This causes much controversy, and is still being argued to modern day. When one sees the flag burning, they believe it to be a representation of the American country and it's values. Those who support the flag believe that the symbol is sacrosanct and that there is never a justification for it. However, America on many occasions has implemented it's freedom of speech, and believes it is that freedom that separates them from much of the world today. If someone is allowed to hang the flag on the front of their house for all to see, then someone wishing to burn the flag should also have the right to do so, even if the consequence is offending their extreme patriotic neighbors. If these two opposing sides are not able have equal freedom as one another, then we as Americans have failed what we so passionately stand for. Freedom of speech would only be justified as long as it did not ruin the image of America, making America nothing more than a dictatorship.…

    In this case, the felony-murder law is unconstitutional and Tisons cannot be executed because if they did not plan to or actually kill anyone, under the 8th Amendment, their punishment given is cruel and unusual. In Enmund v. Florida, Earl Enmund was given the death sentence for being an accessory to two murders. He later appealed and the Supreme Court ruled it was unlawful and his death sentence was vacated. The defendant’s punishment must be proportionate to the crimes they have committed and those not actually performing the murders should not be given the death sentence. We want consistency in the Supreme Court and giving the death penalty for Ricky and Raymond Tison should be uplifted because it would just not be a reasonable punishment. The 14th Amendment states, “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws”. In the Enmund case, Earl Enmund was not given the death sentence because he did not commit any murder. It is only fair, under these circumstances, that the Tison brothers shouldn’t be given the death sentence either because they did not commit any murders. Our defendants were accessories to the murders, they aided and embedded their father and his friend, they were involved in armed robbery, kidnapping, and car theft but due to the fact that there is no evidence that the defendants intended to, attempted to, or in fact kill anyone, they do not deserve the death penalty under these conditions. We want to honor the 8th and 14th Amendment and keep uniformity in this country and that is why these two men should not receive the death sentence. There is no question these two brothers should be punished and that is why a life sentence without possibility of parole is a more…
