1: We didn't start the fire By: Billy Jole | We Didn’t Start The Fire” was a song by Billy Joel. He made it after World War II. It became a huge success when it came out. This song is different than other songs because it’s about history. Its lyrics have all different type of events, people, things, and more. All of these are in the lyrics because they were important. The people, events, and things all did something that changed the world. That is why this song is important.
2: Rosenberg’s The Rosenberg’s were two American citizens who were executed in 1953 because they were found guilty of conspiracy in their own country. Julius and Ether Rosenberg were Communist betraying their country by delivering classified military and industrial information to the Soviets. The execution was controversial because the US did not have enough evidence to prove they were spies, but the nation was going through an anti-Communist hysteria. Ethel’s brother, David Greenglass, was taken into jail for trespassing documents to Julius. Harry Gold spent 15 years in jail because he served as messenger between Greenglass and a scientist named Klaus Fuchs. Also, Morton Sobell, was in prison for 17 years because of his relationship with the Rosenbergs. I think this execution was unfair to Ethel because the US government should have executed the other man mentioned before and not her.
4: H-bomb The h-bomb is a hydrogen bomb that releases a large portion of energy from its isotopes. Ivy Mike was the first H-Bomb test a mushroom cloud was 8 miles across and 27 miles high. Radioactive mud fell out of the sky and 80 million tons of earth was vaporized. It weighed 10 megatons and it was the first ever yield explosion the first h-bomb was exploited in 11-1-1952 at 7:15 am in Enewetak by the U.S. After that in 1953 in Russia and then USSR. Great Britain, France and china have also exploited h-bombs they are known as the nuclear club. When the H-bomb is exploited it makes a hot zone near the middle. When they h-bomb effects vary depending if it is in the air, underwater or underground.

That happened in 1953. The building were the agreement was signed still stands. The Koreans stopped it because it was causing tensions between other nations.

Around 1950 he got obese & went on a crash diet in the 50’s and early 60’s.Brando eclipsed the reputation of other great actors in 1950, such as Paul Muni and Fredric March.
