“Taxation without representation!” was the battle cry in America’s 13 Colonies, which were forced to pay taxes to England’s King George III despite having no representation in the British Parliament. As dissatisfaction grew, British troops were sent in to quell the early movement toward rebellion. Repeated attempts by the Colonists to resolve the crisis without military conflict proved fruitless.

On June 11, 1776, the Colonies’ Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia and formed a committee whose express purpose was drafting a document that would formally sever their ties with Great Britain. The committee included Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman and Robert R. Livingston. Jefferson, who was considered the strongest and most eloquent writer, crafted the original draft document (as seen above). A total of 86 changes were made to his draft and the Continental Congress officially adopted the final version on July 4, 1776.

The following day, copies of the Declaration of Independence were distributed, and on July 6, The Pennsylvania Evening Post became the first newspaper to print the extraordinary document. The Declaration of Independence has since become our nation’s most cherished symbol of liberty.

Bonfires and Illuminations

On July 8, 1776, the first public readings of the Declaration were held in Philadelphia’s Independence Square to the ringing of bells and band music. One year later, on July 4, 1777, Philadelphia marked Independence Day by adjourning Congress and celebrating with bonfires, bells and fireworks.

The custom eventually spread to other towns, both large and small, where the day was marked with processions, oratory, picnics, contests, games, military displays and fireworks. Observations throughout the nation became even more common at the end of the War of 1812 with Great Britain.

In June of 1826, Thomas Jefferson sent a letter to Roger C. Weightman, declining an invitation to come to Washington, D.C. to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. It was the last letter that Jefferson, who was gravely ill, ever wrote. In it, Jefferson says of the document:

“May it be to the world, what I believe it will be … the signal of arousing men to burst the chains … and to assume the blessings and security of self-government. That form, which we have substituted, restores the free right to the unbounded exercise of reason and freedom of opinion. All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. …For ourselves, let the annual return of this day forever refresh our recollections of these rights, and an undiminished devotion to them.”

– Thomas Jefferson
June 24, 1826 Monticello

Congress established Independence Day as a holiday in 1870, and in 1938 Congress reaffirmed it as a paid holiday for federal employees. Today, communities across the nation mark this major midsummer holiday with parades, firework displays, picnics and performances of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and marches by John Philip Sousa.

§241. Conspiracy against rights

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured-

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

Historical and Revision Notes

Clause making conspirator ineligible to hold office was omitted as incongruous because it attaches ineligibility to hold office to a person who may be a private citizen and who was convicted of conspiracy to violate a specific statute. There seems to be no reason for imposing such a penalty in the case of one individual crime, in view of the fact that other crimes do not carry such a severe consequence. The experience of the Department of Justice is that this unusual penalty has been an obstacle to successful prosecutions for violations of the act.

Mandatory punishment provision was rephrased in the alternative.

Minor changes in phraseology were made.

Lauren Bacall

Our editors will review what you’ve submitted and determine whether to revise the article.

Lauren Bacall, original name Betty Joan Perske, (born September 16, 1924, New York, New York, U.S.—died August 12, 2014, New York, New York), American actress known for her portrayals of provocative women who hid their soft core underneath a layer of hard-edged pragmatism.

Bacall started modeling in 1941 and supplemented her income with jobs as a theatre usher and as a hostess at the Stage Door Canteen, which kept her next to the Broadway theatre scene that she loved. In 1942 she appeared as an ingénue in the George S. Kaufman-directed Franklin Street, but the play closed before reaching New York. Bacall’s photo on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar in 1943 caught the attention of the wife of film director Howard Hawks. Cast in Hawks’s To Have and Have Not (1944) as the leggy sardonic beauty who gives Humphrey Bogart a famous lesson in whistling, the 19-year-old Bacall was an overnight sensation. Nervous throughout the shooting, Bacall kept her head low to keep it from shaking this, combined with her bedroom eyes and husky voice, resulted in a sultry aura that was touted in promotional campaigns as “The Look.” She and Bogart fell in love during the filming and were married in 1945 they subsequently costarred in the successful thrillers The Big Sleep (1946), Dark Passage (1947), and Key Largo (1948). Bacall’s other successful films include Young Man with a Horn (1950), How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), and Designing Woman (1957).

After Bogart’s death in 1957, Bacall worked sporadically, appearing in one Broadway flop (Goodbye Charlie, 1959) and one hit (Cactus Flower, 1965) and in such films as Sex and the Single Girl (1964) and Harper (1966). In 1961 she married actor Jason Robards (divorced 1969). Bacall made a stunning comeback in the Broadway musical Applause (1970), for which she won a Tony Award as best actress. Her career revitalized, she went on to essay memorable roles in such films as Murder on the Orient Express (1974), The Shootist (1976), and The Fan (1981). She returned to Broadway in 1981 and won a second Tony Award for Woman of the Year.

Bacall’s performances of the 1990s, most of which capitalized on her brash-but-endearing personality, are among her most respected. She received good notices for supporting roles in Misery (1990), The Portrait (1993 made for television), My Fellow Americans (1996), and Diamonds (1999). For her performance in The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), Bacall received her first Academy Award nomination, for best supporting actress. Her later films include Dogville (2003) and Birth (2004), both of which also featured Nicole Kidman, and The Walker (2007). In 1999 she scored another Broadway triumph in a revival of Noël Coward’s Waiting in the Wings. Bacall wrote three autobiographies—By Myself (1978), Now (1994), and And Then Some (2005).

FUT 12

Ten Years of FIFA Ultimate Team – From September 2011 to September 2012

The year of 2011 marked the FUT history. That was the year it actually stood out. Different to what happened in the previous years, this time it came out integrated with FIFA 12 itself. For the first time, in order to play Ultimate Team it wasn’t necessary for you to download any extra content at all. It became part of the game. That was an important step so that many new players would try it out. But EA Sports wanted more. They introduced Ultimate Team for PC, hitting an outstanding 6,7 million total amount of people playing Ultimate Team all over the world.

One of the keys to success had to do with EA knowing how to addict their audience. They realised that Ultimate Team players weren’t normal players. They were all about bringing their knowledge and passion to real life football together in the game. That’s why the developer decided to introduced new In Form cards. In fact, not just a few. Several. First came the TOTY, blue cards, highlighting the best players of the year. Then they came up with TOTS, also blue cards, dedicated to the best players of the season. Six teams of these. They divided Europe in north and south, gave each region two in form teams of the most consistent players and the other two featured players from the Spanish and English leagues. Soon enough we were presented orange cards. Messi, who had already earned one of these MOTM before, still received the best card in the FUT history. Once again blue, but featuring unbeatable stats. After all, it’s for charity purposes so it’s okay. FUT needed even more colour, and before FIFA 13 came out another type of cards was introduced: the iMOTM. The Euro 2012 hosted their debut, being once purple and then green but they disappeared in FIFA 15. The famous UP cards showed themselves for the first time, bringing virtual and real life football even closer together.

With so many new cards, the game became even more complex. The producer Marcel Kuhn himself admitted, “everybody knows what career mode is about, but explaining Ultimate Team in a sentence is almost impossible”. That was the ideal moment for specialized websites to emerge, just like our FIFAUTeam or the popular database FUTHead, which although already existed previously gained a much more professional appearance during the period of FIFA 12. Also that year for the first time it was possible to participate more than one tournament at a time and receive instantaneous notifications concerning auction results.

What ever became of Microsoft's $150 million investment in Apple?

In August of 1997, Apple and Microsoft decided to put the past behind them and focus on the future. At that year's Macworld event, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates announced that the two companies had entered into a historic agreement. In addition to agreeing to a broad patent cross-licensing agreement, Microsoft promised to support Microsoft Office for the Mac for 5 years while Apple agreed to make Internet Explorer the default web browser on the Mac.

Microsoft also promised to invest approximately $150 million for shares of Apple non-voting preferred stock. Though the Mac faithful at the time were wary of Microsoft, Steve Jobs at the time famously explained that "we have to let go of this notion that for Apple to win, Microsoft has to lose."

The deal between the two companies was mutually beneficial from every angle. Apple got some much needed cash while Microsoft was able to keep a weakened competitor afloat, thereby alleviating concerns about the company's monopolistic power.

Since then, Apple has enjoyed an unparalleled resurgence, ascending from the brink of bankruptcy to one of the most valuable companies on the planet.

That being the case, one can only wonder: What ever became of Microsoft's $150 million investment?

Microsoft's $150 million investment netted the company 150,000 shares of preferred stock, convertable to common shares of Apple stock at a price of $8.25, redeemable after a three year period. By 2001, Microsoft had converted all of its shares into common stock, netting the company approximately 18.1 million shares.

But by 2003, Microsoft had sold its entire stake in Apple.

But what if the folks at Redmond decided to hold on to their Apple shares? How much would they be worth today?

Well, Apple stock split on a 2-for-1 basis twice since the agreement, once in June of 2000 and again in 2005. At the time of the first split, the three year window had not yet passed so let's just assume that Microsoft's shares would have split only once. That would have given the company 36.2 million shares.

At the close of trading on Monday, shares of Apple were trading at $604.59. If Microsoft still had their shares, they'd be worth $21.86 billion, a hell of a return for the initial outlay of $150 million.

Note that this isn't meant to disparage Microsoft, but rather to point out how incredibly high Apple's share price has been. And besides, the influx of cash was never about Microsoft pursuing an investment opportunity.
