President’s inaugural addresses

The inaugural addresses of the following presidents led to the discourse analysis of the No Child Left Behind Act 2001.nation’s leaders in relation to public education: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Baines Johnson, Richard Milhous Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, William Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama. According to Sarason (1993), President Thomas Jefferson was identified as the first education president (p. 2-3) and these twentieth and twenty-first century presidents’ speeches provided a glimpse into their initial thoughts on education. Their speeches provided a sense of the priorities for the United States as viewed from the presidential leadership in the context of the social and economic factors during the time of the speeches.

Theodore Roosevelt gave his inaugural address on March 4, 1905 with no mention of education. He did mention that we should leave our children and grandchildren a heritage and that this would require “practical intelligence”. His address presented peace and relationships among our citizens as well as the world (http://www.bartleby.com/124/pres42.html).

William Howard Taft gave the inaugural address on March 4, 1909 with no reference to education, except a brief statement about an “ignorant electorate”. This was in reference to the passing of the thirteenth and fourteenth amendments and that no longer allowed the exclusion of people from voting because they did not have an education; yet minimal information was shared on how people should be educated in order to not be an ignorant electorate. He did mention reform several times however, the reform related to railroads, industry, banking restrictions, taxes to fund the army, expenditures of the government, foreign trade, building the Panama Canal, tariffs, and rights of the negro race. His address was the longest address of those studied for this research ( www.vlib.us/amdocs/texts/31taft1.htm ).

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
