Julius Caesar Mike Rotch A baby was born on July 12 or 13 of 100 BC in Rome. Little did the proud parents of this baby know that he would rule most of the known world. This baby was born to the name of Gaius, his personal name, Julius was the name of his family's clan and the name of his family was Caesar meaning hairy. Caesar was such an amazing man that many people couldn't believe that he was born the same way as them. Over time stories have arisen about Caesar's birth. One story says that Ca
Lady Macbeth: Feeble-minded? John By the end of Sheakspeare?s Macbeth, Lady Macbeth has proven that her imagination is stronger than her will.

She started this ordeal with a negative, bombastic rhetoric, preying on Macbeth?s weaknesses in order to egg him on. In no way did she make a positive

The Fall of Communism in Russia/Soviet Union Andrew Chambers Communism in the USSR was doomed from the onset. Communism was condemned due to lack of support from other nations, condemned due to corruption within its leadership, condemned due to the moral weakness of humanity, making what is perfect on paper, ineffective in the real world.

Lady Macbeth- Character changes throughout the play The Lady in Red To metamorphose ones character through years of experience and age is salutary.

Why Smoking is Hazardous Ren M.Chu Hi I?m here today to tell you the dangers of smoking. Smoking is one of the most preventable causes of death in our society.

Thus, the property ?being black? cannot form a part of the definition of a cat. The lesson to be learnt is that definitions must be universal. They must apply to all the members of a defined set (the set of ?all cats? in our example). Let us try to define a chair. In doing so we are trying to capture the essence of being a chair, its ?chairness?. It is

Some of the issues under fire are the political state's policies concerning multiculturalism, the attitudes of Canadians around these policies, immigration

Drafted in1787 and ratified in1788 the U.S. Constitution is a godless document. Its utter neglect of religion was no oversight; it was apparent to all at the time. It was bitterly attacked because it did not mention Christianity or even God. This campaign to discredit the Constitution as irreligious, which for many of its opponents was its principal flaw, is seldom mentioned today, because too many people today would like to ignore the fact that it is a godless document. Reverend Timothy Dwight,
Gene is the narrator of the novel and appears at two different time periods: as a middle-aged man re-visiting Devon fifteen years after being a student there, and, for the majority of the novel, as a sixteen and seventeen-year-old student during World War II. The novel is written in the past tense, and we assume that Gene's narration is triggered by his re-visitation of his old school when he is thirty-two. And although the older narrator seems long past the emotional turmoil that marked his sch

A contemporary audience member, or one inclined to assume their language indicates some form of f
