The initial release position is such that the beam on the counterweight side makes an angle of 45° with the vertical. There is a lot of math required in finding the trajectory of the arms through. The trebuchet reached Europe during the early Middle Ages, or Dark Ages, in 500 AD and was used extensively by the French.

Engelhardt's article, "14 years after 9-11, the War on Terror is Accomplishing Everything bin Laden Hoped it Would", relies heavily on anaphora. It begins with the phrase, "Fourteen years.." in every sentence and shifts to every paragraph by page 2. This phrase draws the reader in and drills the event in our minds, reminding us of all that happened. Because his sentences list, the anaphora helps break up each thought, therefore allowing ease of readability. Another use of repetition is the phrase "Don't you..", directed to our reaction as a nation.

The reason that historians differ on the causes, effects, and who was responsible for “historical events” is because memory is reconstructive and unreliable. Therefore the written history of 9-11 is affected by bias because the writers, children, and adults memories are affected by the schemas of each one’s individual culture. This can change the recollection of 9-11 and other traumatic events. Memories linked to 9-11 differ between different cultures.
The 1920’s and the 1930’s were two completely different life styles for everybody. Before going into great detail I would describe the 1920’s as the time of money, luxury, and extravagant parties. The 1930’s on the other hand were entirely different, it consisted of bankruptcy, jobless, starved, and sadness. The 1920’s opened doors for the lives of the African American people in Harlem.
