New York City, 1959 http://t.co/U4Iwoj8PfL
Michel Ortiz's insight:

I think I can honestly say that this was one of my favorite decades of U.S history because I love the fashion, the art and it was soon going to be the beginning of the civil rights movement. I wonder what it would be like to spend a day in Manhattan or San Francisco during this time.

A History Of Indentured Labor Gives 'Coolie' Its Sting

A History Of Indentured Labor Gives 'Coolie' Its Sting | World History | Scoop.it
In the past, the slur was often applied to low-wage, immigrant laborers in the United States.
Michel Ortiz's insight:

I'm sure if teens heard that word today they would put in a way to describe how lame something is....not necessarily as a racial slur.

Michel Ortiz's insight:

I love history but I don't know if I would spend $8-$12 million on a document that just declares Thanksgiving as a national holiday. Eventhough the Library of Congress might have a copy that's in really bad condition, this one should not be sold. I don't think Government copies should ever be sold.

King Tut's Body Spontaneously Combusted Inside Coffin - D-brief | DiscoverMagazine.com | World History | Scoop.it
Broken bones indicate King Tut was hit by a chariot. Afterward his mummification was botched, leading the mummy to catch fire inside its sarcophagus. (Cool history "@DiscoverMag: Why King Tut was embalmed without a heart?
Michel Ortiz's insight:

What makes me wonder is how he got ran over by a chariot in the first place? That's a strange way for a pharaoh to die because they don't even lift a finger by themselves. And a chariot is visible from a distance far enough to run away from.

Michel Ortiz's insight:

A lot of these girls look the same to me. Besids them being redheads, they all have same pointy noses with the small mouth and lips. I guess most of the "beautiful" women were ideally suppose ot look like this and I guess all the wealthy women were either fat or really skinny because they were well fed. Obviously these are European women because of the painting style.

http://t.co/EhcHYV0dWo

Michel Ortiz's insight:

I've been going to a pentecostal church since I was young and I feel like a lot of the things they try to say are very one sided and twisted that is why I think it is important to know the actual history so you won't be fooled into believing what the church wants you to believe. But I also think that one should learn church history from a teacher that is non-religious so the information won't be subjective

Michel Ortiz's insight:

I have seen some images of how Glasglow, Scotland looks like today and it is nothing like it is shown in this image. I woul love to travel to this continent during this season because all the lights Christmas lights would show up and it would look very festive. It's impressive to see how much the city had changed in less than 70 years.

How did Kennedy's assassination change the world?
CNN
(CNN) -- The John F. Kennedy who was elected in 1960 was not going to change the world.
Michel Ortiz's insight:

It is really hard to determine if President JFK was a good president because he only live for 3 years of his first term. He was shotting for the stars(well for the moon to be exact) because he had so much plans for the country. I do believe that the president could of been relected into office again by a close turnout just because Texas was a diffiicult state to win over and as a result, it was the one that sent him to his grave. I am not a big fan of the state of Texas, that is why I am not surprised that what happened there, happened to a member of the democratic party. JFK was going to change history if he would of not been killed, he was not in favor of the Vietnam war and that is a big piece of history that is hard to imagine differently. And, he with his brother Bobby, were striking down on organized crime.

A seaman meets his baby for the first time after fourteen months at sea. 1940s http://t.co/oI2IFPm8IM
Michel Ortiz's insight:

This image caught my eye because the man is holding the baby as if he is just a bag. The sailor seemed more happy to see the woman more than his son. Also, this a few years before WWII so I'm sure the man was a very needed sailor if he is barely meeting his son.
