9/22/09 3 things today: 1 tremor 2 aftershocks the tremor is interesting. Earthquake or tremor? It was a pivotal event as it changed mexico but did not transform it the election in 2006 was an aftershock the election in july 2009 was another aftershock. They all show where mexico and US are going. So we finally start to pull together for the actual class. No more history I guess? Tremor: As mentioned, no one thought a small senator was going to overthrow a 71 year old regime. People thought he would do well, but not actually win. 2 people helped generate ideas for where they were going Jorge Castaneda Adolfo aguilar zinzer They felt that Vicente fox would be the best to overthrow the PRI. They helped shape his ideas in a certain direction So he wins in july….by a lot. But he didn’t win either house of congress.

Before 9/11, Castaneda pushes for UN seat, and the Mexican people push towards reform in foreign countries. After, everyone is opposed to go to war. the US wanted them to join them and be an ally, but the general public is against it. But Mexico wants reform in US! Odd situation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
