ACADEMIC INTEGRITY PLAGIARISM AND CITING SOURCES:
In this age of the internet, it has become very easy and tempting to simply cut and paste text from the internet. I strongly advise against this! A better approach is to take notes (I put them on index cards) that paraphrase the information from your source. If you do find something that is so juicy that you want to quote it directly, then you may cut and paste it from the internet as long as you put quotation marks around it and cite the source properly.
but you told me to just give the bonus of $15 which i just did if i put it in a new post now they will charge me $15

PUBLIC MEMORIALS Public art has long been used to honor our fallen and our heroes. This week we are going to consider why we as a society build memorials and how we go about determining what form these memorials take. Consider some or all of the following questions as you explore the major memorial projects that are linked below. For your initial comment, focus on one of the memorials.
Why do we as a society build memorials? What purpose do they serve? What do you think makes for an effective memorial? Consider these questions based one of the memorials below: What was the significance to our society of the event being memorialized? How was the design selected? (If that information is available.) Who do you think should have had a say in selecting the design? Was the design controversial? (If that information is available.) Do you agree or disagree with the opponents of the memorial? Does the design reflect the significance of the event? Does this memorial fulfill your criteria for an effective memorial? Would you like to have seen a different design for this memorial?
1) WORLD TRADE CENTER: Browse the following web site: the PBS Frontline site "Sacred Ground", which contains a thorough discussion of the current design of the Freedom Tower and its attendant controversy. Another good site from PBS on the rebuilding effort: Americare Builds 2) PENTAGON 9/11 MEMORIAL: Official site: Pentagon 9/11 Memorial More information and interview with the designers: Americare Builds -- Pentagon Memorial I have not found any articles that suggest that there was major controversy surrounding this design.
3) NATIONAL WWII MEMORIAL: The official web site for the memorial: WWII Memorial The web site for a group that objected to the location of the memorial: Save the Mall A good overview of the events that occurred from the inception of the project to the dedication: WWII Memorial Timeline
