The Renaissance was a one of the best times in world history that made a big change in the world. A lot of people only know about few people that lived during the Renaissance for example Michael Angelo, William Shakespeare, and Leonardo de Vinci. Those are the names people recognize and know about the Renaissance because they are taught about at school but there are more people that did extraordinary things during the Renaissance and are not recognized in school. For example Michael Angelo is known for painting the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Leonardo is known for a lot of stuff because his stuff help contribute to modern day art, science, and math.
“Besides being a skillful artist, Leonardo was also known as a remarkable inventor, and a brilliant scientist. Leonardo designed a myriad of inventions, although few of these designs were constructed in his lifetime. In his later years, he devoted a substantial amount of time to carefully constructed notebooks filled with scientific notations and compelling sketches, all meticulously inscribed backwards (starting at the right side of the page and moving to the left), so that they can only be read with the aid of a mirror. Leonardo was left-handed, so mirror writing came easily and naturally to him. Some say that although unusual, this mirror writing is a trait shared by many left-handed dyslexic people,” says studyenglishtoday.net.

One way he was motivated is he didn 't let not knowing how to read or not going to school for no more than A week to two weeks stop him from being one of the greatest black mathematicians. Banneker also gained fame from the many different ways he contributed to math. Some of Benjamin Banneker 's contributions to math include how to better study the stars to make predictions and calculations about events such as solar eclipses. When Benjamin Banneker successfully predicted a solar eclipse in 1789, he surprised the fields of mathematics and astronomy with his accuracy. He also applied his mathematical skill to survey Washington, D.C., helping to shape the
The vast amount of knowledge that Mill gained at a young age no doubt assisted him in becoming such a well-recognized philosopher and economist. It was not until Mill’s late teens that he began to study Jeremy Bentham and his utilitarianism theory. “Reading Bentham satisfied Mill’s cravings for scientific precision and gave him a new way of looking at social intercourse” (Buchholz 97). Mill became so intrigued with Bentham that he decided to preach the Benthamite gospel in the Westminster Review, a publication started by his father and Jeremy Bentham. Mill’s views soon changed as he grew older.
a. Trade and the advancement of technology both motivated and provided the means to the colonization and exploration across the seas. First, trading throughout Europe demonstrated a very profitable means of income for every nation, but the slow travel routes motivated the exploration of a new path to the desired destination. Trading had also provided the means of colonization because of the motivated exploration of new land.

In the early civilizations , government, economy, and the art culture was growing for developing countries. The Tigris and Euphrates River Valley was very similar and different from the famous Nile river valley in Egypt in many ways. Waging wars and causing trouble in paradise are not the only things that the Middle East is and was capable of.These two civilizations built the structure of autocracy, monarchy, and the artistic community, from hieroglyphics to pictographs these communities of people created things that we still use today to find out more of ancient history.The Persian chart by Ms.Dumelow’s 9th grade class explains the exact differences between the two river valleys The Nile River Valley and The Tigris Euphrates river valley. The people of Mesopotamia ( Tigris and Euphrates River Valley), and the Nile River Valley had a very strong belief in polytheism. The belief in a religion called polytheism, or the belief of many gods not just one in particular.
I am proud to be here two hundred years later, studying international economics at a school thriving with many new people from all around the world. I am Frederik Pedersen a student of the London School of Economics and Political Science and I have a question for you. I want to ask you, the listener if you think immigration is good for Britain. Surely, you must have thought about this once through all the commotion in the media, about mass immigration from the war in the Middle East. Everyone have an opinion on this and many of them are probably very good opinions but I have seen new discussions rise from people and politicians after the new restriction and border security made by the Swedish and German government and let 's not forget about the terrorist attack in France.
