Before #WW2 , #FDR becomes president in March 1933: "Newly elected, Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (left) and Vice Pres. John Nance Garner (right) took office in March 1933. During his campaign, Roosevelt had proposed ways to pull the country out of the Depression. Although his sophisticated education included a background in internal affairs. Roosevelt's foreign agenda seemed compatible with the nation's isolationism. However, at the 1936 Democratic National Convention, he stated that all was not well with the world, warning that "clouds of suspicion, tides of ill-will and intolerance gather darkly in many places." FDR would initiate naval and air rearmament in 1936 and 1938, respectively, and put the U.S. on a war footing in 1939." (Source of quoted text: "World War II Chronicle," by Consultants Gerhard L.

Edifício Martinelli e Edifício Altino Arantes ao fundo
Localizado no Centro de São Paulo, o local pode ser considerado um mirante, devido sua altura, onde em suas redondezas é possível observar pontos turísticos de São Paulo. Foi o segundo arranha-céu do Brasil e da América Latina, tendo sido ultrapassado pelo Edifício Joseph Gire, ou Edifício A Noite, no Rio de Janeiro.
O edifício foi idealizado pelo italiano Giuseppe Martinelli e projetado pelo arquiteto húngaro Vilmos (William) Fillinger. Com 105 metros de altura, foi entre 1934 e 1947 o maior arranha-céu do país e, durante um tempo, o mais alto da América Latina. Gerou grande polêmica, pois, até esse momento, não havia nenhum outro edifício em São Paulo com altura elevada.
When Breath Becomes Air
By Paul Kalanithi
Likely this opinion will not make me popular with the general populace, but I did not adore Paul Kalanithi’s memoir on his life and musings. Don’t get me wrong, it was a thought provoking read on some levels, but as a whole it did not cause me to have lingering thoughts on his life. Perhaps my expectations were too high as I had from many readers how much they enjoyed it. In retrospect, no one ever explained why they recommended it.
Soon after the author penned his memoir, he passed away from a fight with cancer. In this book he recounts why and how he delved into medicine as a life calling. He also recounts his reaction and subsequent actions when he learned of his fatal prognosis. I admire his determination to not let his illness decide who he was as a person, but instead he used it to understand his career and passion to a much greater depth than he could have ever possibly before.
Any rebuttals to my 3 star rating? I’d love to hear them!
