The Bronx Was Brewing: A Digital Resource Of A Lost Industry, Michelle Zimmer 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Bronx Was Brewing: A Digital Resource Of A Lost Industry, Michelle Zimmer

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The Bronx: a bucolic oasis laden with history, a suburb within city-limits, an urban warzone, and thanks to the recent renaissance, a phoenix of progress rising from the proverbial ashes of the fires that burned through the borough in the 1970’s. But many people are unaware that the Bronx also brewed.
Uncovering the brewing industry of the Bronx tells not only the story of the lost industry, but it also communicates the narrative of the development of the Bronx. The brewers were German immigrants who developed a thriving industry by introducing lager beer to the United States by taking ...

اعتراض حق مردم است, Mohammad Khaksari 2018 Teacher's Pen (Iranian Independent Education Journal)

اعتراض حق مردم است, Mohammad Khaksari

Mohammad Khaksari


موضوع: اعتراض  حق مردم است 

سلام همکاران فرهنگی، در کشور های  جریان آزاد اطلاعات «اعتراض»‌ حق مردم است. در قالب «تجمع، اعتصاب، رسانه ها» و موارد دیگر انجام می گیرد و امنیت ملی را هم به خطر نمی اندازد اما در کشورهایی که «جریان آزاد اطلاعات» وجود ندارد هر اعتراض مردمی را برچسب «مخالف امنیت ملی» می زنند. حتی در همین قانون اساسی بازنگری شده کنونی هم، هنوز اصول مختلفی مثل اصل ۲۷ وجود دارند که اعتراض و تجمع غیرمسلحانه را حق قانونی مردم می داند

یادم هست یکبار که وزارت اطلاعات اینجانب و همکار دیگری را به وزرات اطلاعات ...

Journal of Collective Bargaining in the Academy

“Solving The ‘Social Question’: Women Workers And Working-Class Families In Restoration Valencia, 1870-1900.”, Julia A. Hudson-Richards 2017 Independent Scholar

“Solving The ‘Social Question’: Women Workers And Working-Class Families In Restoration Valencia, 1870-1900.”, Julia A. Hudson-Richards

Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies

In Restoration Valencia, social reformers engaged in solving the so-called "social question" honed in on working women and the structure of the working class family as a way to promote a hegemonic view of bourgeois culture among the working classes. The data they produced, primarily in Valencia's report for the Commission for Social Reform, are the most comprehensive data about women's work lives available for late-19th-century Valencia, and helped to provide the foundation for legislation limiting women's work, particularly the law of 13 March 1900.


Children Of The Crisis: Farm Youth In Troubled Times, Pamela Riney-Kehrberg 2017 Iowa State University

Children Of The Crisis: Farm Youth In Troubled Times, Pamela Riney-Kehrberg

Pamela Riney-Kehrberg

The farm crisis of the 1980s was one of the defining American moments of the late twentieth century. The Midwest’s farmers, long revered as the protectors of America’s agrarian heritage, saw economic reversals of a magnitude unseen since the Great Depression. Many had expanded their operations in the 1970s on the basis of rising land prices, only to see the value of their farms plummet in the early days of the 1980s. Farm income fell significantly, while the number of farm foreclosures skyrocketed. Families began to show signs of stress, as rates of spousal abuse, clinical depression, and ...


Object Lesson: The High School Yearbook, Pamela Riney-Kehrberg 2017 Iowa State University

Object Lesson: The High School Yearbook, Pamela Riney-Kehrberg

Pamela Riney-Kehrberg

In the fall of 1984, high school senior Beth Ellsworth and her yearbook staff were facing a tough task: how to tell the story of the good things that were happening at Harlan Community High School, while at the same time acknowledging the pain that they and their classmates were feeling in the wake of the agricultural crisis that was sweeping Iowa. While the obvious choice would be to focus in on a big event that was happening that year, or to do a “sign of the times” yearbook, none of that was particularly appealing. After all, in small-town Iowa ...

اعتراض به پلمپ کانون صنفی فرهنگیان قزوین, Mohammad Khaksari 2017 Teacher's Pen (Iranian Independent Education Journal)

اعتراض به پلمپ کانون صنفی فرهنگیان قزوین, Mohammad Khaksari

Mohammad Khaksari


موضوع: اعتراض به پلمپ کانون صنفی فرهنگیان قزوین 

سلام همکاران فرهنگی، متاسفانه در این روزها شبکه های اجتماعی خبر از پلمپ شدن کانون صنفی فرهنگیان قزوین را به اطلاع فرهنگیان ایران رسانده اند. لذا لازم دیدم که خاطر همکاران را به این موضوع جلب کنم که طبق قانون احزاب خود وزارت کشور، هیچ تشکلی را نمی توان لغو مجوز یا پلمپ کرد مگر از طریق حکم دادگاه صالحه. پس لازم است که همه ما آگاه باشیم که وزرات کشور قانونا (حتی با قانون خودشان) نمی توانسته کانون صنفی فرهنگیان قزوین را پلمپ کند و استانداری قزوین خلاف قانون و خودسرانه ...


Think Of The Children: Child Labor Through The Progressive Era In Early Twentieth-Century America, Thomas Clark 2017 University of Washington Tacoma

Think Of The Children: Child Labor Through The Progressive Era In Early Twentieth-Century America, Thomas Clark

History Undergraduate Theses

Child labor in America was a pivotal component of the Progressive reform movement throughout the first half of the twentieth century. Beginning my research, I looked into the role of child labor in the creation of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. The FLSA was the first federal law to abolish child labor successfully. Throughout my research, I noticed a trend of law passage and Supreme Court denial.

The most referenced events involving child labor as an evil to society came in the early part of the twentieth-century. The two most famous events were Mary “Mother Jones” Harris and ...
