A. The invention of this camera was an amazing event because people could capture their own pictures instead of having to go to a professional photographer each time they wanted to savor a moment. This was very exciting technology in this age, it was considered very modern. B. The way this affects me is that this camera developed and changed over time into more and more modern versions of itself. If it hadn't been for this camera, there might not have been cameras in iPhones. For me, the camera is a very important feature on my phone that I utilize quite a bit. C. The way this affects the world today is that people no longer need to go to professionals to get nice pictures, so there aren't as many professional photographers today as there used to be when regular people didn't just own cameras.
A. The invention of the first affordable car obviously had a great impact on the world because people were able to travel from place to place with ease. Also, it created a lot of jobs for unemployed people to work on the assembly line. B. This invention affects me personally because I will soon be driving and if it hadn't been for the first car, I wouldn't be driving. C. This affects the world in many positive ways but also a few negative ones. Some good things that have come from this is that people are able to have affordable transportation and they don't have to walk places; however, one of the leading causes of death in our world is car crashes. Cars are overall a success in our world, but people who are irresponsible with them can do a lot of damage.
A. The Great Depression affected the world in its time because it put a lot of the country out of work and left many families with little or no money to live on. The value of products plummeted down because there were so few people who were able to purchase them. B. This event impacts me because it taught me never to live beyond my means, and to never live in debt. C. This event impacted today's world because banks are now insured and run differently in order to prevent depressions from occurring.
A. The dust bowl lasted for a whole decade during the 1930s, and killed many people along with livestock. It was very dangerous because there would be dust storms and people would get very injured and damaged. One of the impacts it had for years after was a failing economy; crops hadn't grown successfully for 10 years. B. This affects me personally because I go to the west side of the country a lot and that is where this event occurred. C. The dust bowl taught modern farmers how to preserve natural resources and how to prepare for weather mishaps.
A. The Harlem Renaissance was a movement in the 1920's in the city of Harlem, New York. It was an expression of African American people through poetry, art, music, dancing, etc. It affected the world because it showed how they lived and felt and were discriminated against. B. This relates to me specifically because I love music and dancing and I especially enjoy the genre of art that they worked with. C. This event impacts the present day because it reminds people that they are able to express themselves through various ways, and that it is important to express the way you're feeling in a way that makes you happy like dancing or singing.
A. As a result of these concentration camps, over 11 million people (Roma, Jews, Homosexuals) died a slow and torturous death. The world was in a huge mess, nobody was fully aware of the tragedies going on in these camps. B. This affects me because I am Jewish and if nothing had been done to oppose camps, I would be in one right now. C. This affects our world today because we will never let anyone forget the horrors that the world saw to ensure that it will never happen again.
A. This crime - infested couple affected the world by stealing lots of money from people, kidnapping people, and killing lots of people. Bonnie and Clyde were two very horrible people who had always been involved in crime. The police tracked them for years trying to capture them, but they killed every policeman that came upon them until they were both shot and killed in a car chase in 1934. B. This impacts me because I can use their mistakes to help me make sure I never make the same ones so I don't end up like them. C. Today, we have cameras and other devices to help track criminals and we have greater security in our prisons so murderers can't escape and keep harming people.
A. Because alcohol (any use of it) was made illegal, many people started doing illegal things to obtain it; there were secret clubs and secret places where the alcohol was made and passed along. B. Because of prohibition, I live in a world where alcohol is legal, so there is less illegal activity going on around me concerning alcohol. C. This affects the present day because there is much less crime dealing with alcohol than there was during the time of prohibition.
A. Einstein's theory changed the world of science and physics forever. His work deals with space and time which helps us understand our world on a more complex level. B. This idea relates to me because I took physics last year and most of the lessons we learned were based off of this theory that Einstein discovered so without him I (along with the rest of the world) would have no knowledge in this field of science. C. This is an important breakthrough for the world because many astronomers use this basis to figure out things relating to space.
A. In a sweatshop in Manhattan, a fire caught and killed 145 workers. The fire was a result of ignored safety hazards, so after this tragedy, working conditions were improved. B. This affects me in the way that when I start working, wherever it may be, there will be laws that protect my working conditions from being violated and hopefully something like this can be prevented. C. The way this event impacts the present, is that working conditions are improved and safety procedures have been put in place in case an emergency happens.
