America Flashback

During World War II, American President Franklin Roosevelt promoted democracy in Latin America to ensure these nations remained allied with the United States. This allowed the people of Guatemala to improve their standard of living by slowly reforming their feudal plantation system established by Spanish colonizers and later exploited by American corporations. This threatened profits for United Fruit, a huge American corporation that dominated politics in Central America. It quietly demanded action by the United States, labeling popular economic reforms - communism. The CIA developed a plan that was approved by the American President. In 1954, the popular democratically elected President of Guatemala was ousted in a violent coup that resulted in decades of turmoil and violence.

This video is about everything in the 2000 decade

This was truly a great assignment. I discovered there were many things that made the 2000 decade so special. Many ideas came into my head. I decided on doing a video tribute about the 2000's. As an ancient proverb states, "One picture is worth a thousand words." So many things were revolutionized in the 2000 decade and products that would change pop culture. My tribute begins by reminding the viewer of the greatest impacts of the decade. It starts with a video of Steve Jobs introducing the IPhone. The IPhone is created by Apple and was one of the most sought after products of the 2000s. It was an introduction to technology of the future; a stepping stone for better things to come. Next in the tribute I share a video of an event that would change the nation and our everyday lives as we know it, the tragedy of the 911. It was a time that revealed the evilness of the terrorist and the courage of the President and the United States to unite as a nation. Following the two video clips, I organized the remainder of the tribute to show pictures and clips of movies, commercials, products, events, posters, etc that I felt were introduced in the 2000s and influenced our society. The pictures were separated into categories; crisis and disasters; movies and commercials; memorable items and games and finally daily items that most people use every day but was invented not so long ago. I concluded the tribute with pictures of world records and moments that can't be forgotten.

Part fourteen of a 15-part series of documentaries produced by the American Broadcasting Company on the 20th century and the rise of the United States as a superpower.

As the 1970s gave way to the 1980s, Americans were ready for a more conservative leader and they found the answer to their quest in Ronald Reagan. Reagan's folksy ways and familiar face created an aura of trust and he became one of America's most popular presidents. But Reagan's homespun ways could not forestall the economic crises of the 1980s and the widening economic divide between the haves and the have-nots. This episode examines some of the major events of the 1980s including the recession, AIDS, Wall Street, MTV, terrorism, televangelism and the fall of communism.

A brief overview of the high profile events of the 1960s and 70s that caused America to forever change in the 1970s. Events as far ranging as the assassinations of JFK, RFK and MLK to Vietnam, Watergate, the fall of Saigon, the early surrender of the Panama canal, Skylab and so many other things forever changed how Americans view their own government and see themselves to this day.

Part nine of a 15-part series of documentaries produced by the American Broadcasting Company on the 20th century and the rise of the United States as a superpower.

The election of Dwight Eisenhower in 1952 ushered in one ofthe most prosperous eras in American history. The shortages of the war were a distant memory as consumers rushed to spend their wartime savings on the new homes, cars and appliances that were now abundant. The nuclear family as the haven from political and atomic anxiety depended on rigid gender roles and consumption, and television provided the images of themselves that Americans wanted to see. But beneath the complacency of the era lurked the indicators of a society waiting to rebel, and the realities of a nation divided by racial and class conflicts. This episode examines the "Happy Days" of the 1950s and the major events of those years such as the Baby Boom, suburbanization, the advent of television, Civil Rights, Brown v. Board of Education, youth rebellions and the fears of a society enmeshed in a cold war.

Take a trip back in time to the fabulous 50s in WDSE•WRPT’s new historic documentary. It was an era when drive-ins were all the rage, and a music icon began his legendary journey at a Duluth concert. It was a decade when the Arrowhead region met a major mining challenge, and the region played a strategic role in the Cold War. The 1950s were years of prosperity, as the American way of life revolved around the car, families moved to the suburbs, and television became a part of everyday life. And local milestones included the passing of the last Civil War veteran Albert Woolson, and the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway.
