Examples of Battle of the Bulge in the following topics:
- At the time, this was one-third of all able-bodied Native American men from 18 to 50 years of age and 10% of the entire Native American population.
- The overwhelming majority of Native Americans welcomed the opportunity to serve.
- Indian Commissioner in 1945, "caused the greatest disruption of Native life since the beginning of the reservation era," affecting the habits, views, and economic well-being of tribal members.
- The most significant of these changes was the opportunity—as a result of wartime labor shortages—to find well-paying work in cities, and many people relocated to urban areas, particularly on the West Coast with the buildup of the defense industry.
- Over the course of the war, Native American men fought across the world on all fronts, and were involved in many of the most critical battles involving American troops, including Iwo Jima, the Invasion of Normandy, the Liberation of the Philippines, the Battle of the Bulge, the Liberation of Paris, and the Liberation of Belgium.
- In the midst of the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944,
a major German offensive campaign launched on the western front (in the region of Wallonia in Belgium, France, and Luxembourg), General Eisenhower was severely short of replacement troops for existing military units that were totally white in composition.
- At the start of the Battle of the Bulge, the 333rd Battalion, a combat unit composed entirely of African-American soldiers led by white officers, was attached to the 106th Infantry Division.
- Eleven of its soldiers were cut off from the rest of the unit and attempted to escape German capture, but were massacred on sight by the Waffen SS.
- The desegregation of all U.S.
- Explain the importance of the Tuskegee Airmen, the Golden Thirteen, the Port Chicago disaster, and the 1997 recipients of the Medal of Honor
- On 4 July, 1943, Germany attacked Soviet forces around the Kursk Bulge, but were defeated in a counter-offensive.
- The Soviet victory heralded the downfall of German superiority, giving the Soviet Union the initiative on the Eastern Front.
- From November 1943, during the seven-week Battle of Changde, the Chinese forced Japan to fight a costly war of attrition, while awaiting Allied relief.
- On 6 June, 1944, known as D-Day, the Allies invaded northern France, leading to the defeat of the German Army units and the liberation of Paris on 25 August .
- In the Philippines, American forces defeated the Japanese in the Battle of the Philippine Sea and soon after scored another large victory during the Battle of Leyte Gulf, one of the largest naval battles in history .
- Countries with declining populations, such as Japan, have a bulge in the middle of their age structure diagram.
- The bulge indicates relatively-few young individuals, and a higher proportion of middle-aged and older individuals.
- For example, in the Middle East and North Africa, around 65 percent of the population is under the age of 30.
- These high growth rates lead to the so-called "youth bulge," which some experts believe is a cause of social unrest and economic problems such as high unemployment.
- The stable population diagram is rounded on top; the older part of the population is a larger proportion of the population than in the other age diagrams.
- A disc herniation is a common injury caused by a tear in the fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc, allowing the central portion to bulge.
- A spinal disc herniation is a medical condition affecting the spine in which a tear in the outer, fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc allows the soft, central portion to bulge out beyond the damaged outer rings .
- Symptoms of a herniated disc can vary depending on the location of the herniation and the types of soft tissue that become involved.
- If the herniated disc is in the lumbar region (where the majority of herniated discs occur), the patient may also experience sciatica due to irritation of one of the nerve roots of the sciatic nerve.
- In the majority of cases, spinal disc herniation doesn't require surgery.
- The Battle of Leyte Gulf is generally considered the largest naval battle of World War II and possibly the largest naval battle in history.
- The Battle of Leyte Gulf, also called the Battles for Leyte Gulf, and formerly known as the Second Battle of the Philippine Sea, is generally considered to be the largest naval battle of World War II and, by some criteria, possibly the largest naval battle in history.
- The Battle of Leyte Gulf consisted of four separate major engagements between the opposing forces: the Battle of the Sibuyan Sea, the Battle of Surigao Strait, the Battle of Cape Engaño, and the Battle of Samar; there were also other lesser actions.
- Kamikaze strikes were first used by the Japanese in the Battle of Leyte Gulf
- Identify the notable facts and the four major engagements of the Battle of Leyte Gulf.
- The Battle of Bull Run, the first major battle of the Civil War, demonstrated
to the public that the conflict would not be resolved quickly or easily.
- The First Battle of Bull Run, called the "Battle of First Manassas" by the
Confederacy, was fought on July 21, 1861, in Prince William County, Virginia,
near the city of Manassas.
- It was the first major land battle of the American
Civil War, but is also significant for demonstrating to the wider public the
inexperience of both armies and the intractable nature of the conflict given
the inability of either side to achieve a quick or decisive victory.
- Johnston arrived from the Shenandoah
Valley by railroad and the course of the battle quickly changed.
- This figure shows the direction of Union attack and Confederate reinforcement at the First Battle of Bull Run.

- The number of the week (used here) is one more
than the actual age of the embryo/fetus.
- The fetal heart bulges, develops further, and begins to beat in a regular rhythm.
- The features are consistent
with a developmental age of seven weeks (the ninth week of menstrual age).
- The heart is the dark spot at the center of the image, bulging out of the
- In the case of the female, the opening of the superficial inguinal ring is smaller than that of the male.
- Hernias present as bulges in the groin area that can become more prominent when coughing, straining, or standing up.
- They are rarely painful, and the bulge commonly disappears on lying down.
- The inability to "reduce," or place the bulge back into the abdomen usually means the hernia is 'incarcerated' which requires emergency surgery.
- As the hernia progresses, contents of the abdominal cavity, such as the intestines, can descend into the hernia and run the risk of being pinched within the hernia, causing an intestinal obstruction.
- The ascending aorta is the first portion of the aorta; it includes the aortic sinuses, the bulb of the aorta, and the sinotubular junction.
- The ascending aorta is a portion of the aorta beginning at the upper part of the base of the left ventricle, on a level with the lower border of the third costal cartilage behind the left half of the sternum; it passes diagonally upward, forward, and to the right, in the direction of the heart's axis, as high as the upper border of the second right costal cartilage.
- At the junction of the ascending aorta with the aortic arch, the caliber of the vessel increases with a bulging of its right wall.
- This dilatation is termed the "bulb of the aorta."
- The ascending aorta is covered at its beginning by the trunk of the pulmonary artery and, higher up, is separated from the sternum by the pericardium, the right pleura, the anterior margin of the right lung, some loose areolar tissue, and the remains of the thymus.
