FC: " We didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel
1: Dedicated to my Social Studies class E.C.A 2010-2011
2: U- 2 was an Irish band from Dublin. They consisted in four members which were Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen. This band was known because their songs were in visual Images and for a specific person. U-2 was so successful he had 150 million records and was named the bestselling groups in popular music. In 1977 the band changed their name to the Hype but they changed it back because it was the name they most like and because of its “ambiguity”. This band has done a lot of charity concerts to raise money, in fact Bono and Adam Clayton participated in a Band Aid to raise money for Ethiopian famine relief. From 34 nominations for the Grammies, U-2 has won 22 in total so in other word they have won more than any other band. The band was put in “The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame” in 2005. | U-2
4: Syngnam Rhee Syngnam Rhee was the first president of South Korea. He was an anti-communist that led South Korea through the Korean War. Syngman Rhee has been one of the few presidents who have ever won an election by 90 percent of the vote. In June 28 during the Korean War, at midnight South Korea bombed the Han Bridge and killed thousands of North Korean citizens. Syngman Rhee’s relationship with the United States of America strained because he refused to accept a number of ceasefire that might have ended the Korean War. Since Sygman Rhee wanted to become the leader of a unified Korea he declined any plan that was not about destroying Kim – Sung and that why he did not accept the number of cease fire the United States offered. With the Korean War still going on Rhee won the re-election in 1952. He also organized a plan to take down Mao Zedong.
8: Kennedy Born of Irish descendent on May 1917. John F Kennedy graduated from Harvard and started defending his country in the naval forces. When Kennedy returned from war we came back as a hero. In 1953 he was elected president. President John F. Kennedy informed the world that Russia was building Missile bases in Cuba. Kennedy orders the president of Russia Nikita Khrushchev to clear off their missile bases and any other deadly weapons. Kennedy sent some naval quarantine (blockade) of Cuba in order to protect the U.S from any nuclear missile sent. Kennedy was killed by a sharpshooter in a building, he missed 2 shots and hit him in the 3rd, as soon as Kennedy was killed his body guards jumped to protect his wife. After Kennedy was assassinated we was buried in the Arlington National Cemetery and his wife ordered to have an eternal flame on top of him. Kennedy was the youngest guy to serve as a U.S president and in my opinions one of my favorites.
10: Chubby Checker Ernest Evans also known as Chubby Checker was born in Spring Gulley, South Carolina but he was raised in Philadelphia. At the age of 8 he had formed a “band” and learned how to play the piano, he also entertained his classmates with his vocal abilities. After school Evans would usually entertain people rather singing or telling jokes. Earnest Evans changed the way we dance to beat 24/7 since 1957. He made one of the most famous albums called “ the twist”, he started recording it in 1952. In the summer of 1960 “the twist” was released and it was a hit in fact Chubby Checker was the only artist to have 5 albums in the top 12 at once and the only artist to have 9 double –sides hits.
