    1. What you couldn't see, at first, was anything but static on the TV screen. Many Americans bought TVs before they could receive a signal.

      This is something I never knew about. Why would people buy these TVs if all they seen was static? This behavior corresponds with todays version of the word "trend". People want things just to have them because everyone else has them.

    2. As always, there’s a dispute over who was actually first.

      This isn't nothing new when it comes to history. History gets foggy when it comes to who did things first.

    3. obsolescence.

      Never heard of this word. Obsolescence-the process of becoming outdated.

    4. What kind of life did the CRT lead?

      What is a "CRT?" What does it stand for? It's kind of like VCR because i don't know what that stands for either.

    5. “Rust in peace,”

      I am not even sure if this is a pun or a metaphor. A pun is form of word play that suggests two or more meanings, by exploiting multiple meanings of words, or of similar-sounding words, for an intended humorous or rhetorical effect. A metaphor is a figure of speech that refers to something as being the same as another thing for rhetorical effect. After finding their definitions I honeslty think it is a pun.

    1. According to court testimony, they were killed seconds after the photo was taken. The woman on the right is adjusting her blouse buttons because of a sexual assault that happened before the massacre.

      Sexual assault is an all time low for any man to commit. Sexual assault still happens today and society puts the blame on the woman instead of the man. I always wonder what goes through their minds during this situation.

    2. Miami policemen, one holding the man's arm and the other with an arm lock on his neck, drag away a Negro youth during a clash between police and rioters in that city's predominantly Negro Liberty City district on August 8, 1968. #

      Does it take two policemen to handle one man?

    3. Members of the Black Panthers gather in front of entrance to the Alameda County Courthouse

      This act symbolizes black unity and sometimes coming together as a unit makes us stronger. Minorities don't realize how strong they are and how much of an impact they could potentially make. This photo gives me inspiration.

    4. A large crowd lines railroad tracks as the funeral train of Robert F. Kennedy passes on its way to Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C.

      This photo shows that thousands of people respected him as a president.

    5. Coretta Scott King, widow of Martin Luther King Jr., walks past the casket containing the body of the assassinated Senator Robert F. Kennedy in St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City on June 7, 1968.

      Coretta Scott King shows respect to JFK. Her husband and JFK were two of the most impactful men of their decade.

    6. Mexico's Norma Enriqueta Basilio, the first woman in the history of the modern Olympic Games to light the Olympic Fire, runs up the 90 steps with the Olympic Torch during the opening ceremonies here on October 12, 1968.

      Women have came a long way especially minorities. This is a small portion of what was to come after this. It's women power.

    7. On the roadside, two emaciated Nigerian boys slowly die from starvation and malnutrition. Biafra was a breakaway state within Nigeria that fought a war for independence from 1967 to 1970, ending after years of fighting and a crippling blockade by Nigeria resulted in the deaths of between 500,000 and two million Biafran civilians by starvation.

      This photo brings about a lot of emotions considering these kids are slowly dying of starvation. The soldiers aren't even acknowledging the children. It seems as though they have no care for them.
