Cousin of King Hieron III, and son of Phidias, Archimedes was very popular. He was skilled in many fields, including mathematics, physics, inventing, and astronomy. Archimedes devised various devices that were versatile in their use, persisted to improve upon their crude style of mathematics, and made an impact on society by using his countless inventions to shield Sicily from a Roman onslaught.

Steven Johnson, author of several books with a scientific focus, published a particular novel entitled The Invention of Air: A Story of Science, Faith, Revolution, and the Birth of America. This novel chronicled the life and times of Joseph Priestley, a man who--as the title hints--more than dabbled in the introspective realms of the early sciences, religion, and politics. Though he may be less than a household name today, Priestley made an unforgettable indentation in each subject of his studies, his pool of friends and foes even including such giants as Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, men revered as the fathers of this country. To this day, his work has had a ripple effect
For my hero I chose Albert Einstein, the German physicist and scientist who made many essential contributions to the scientific world. Albert Einstein was born in 1979 in Ulm, Germany to a poor family, his family was secular Jewish which would make a big difference in his life in the 1940’s. Albert Einstein is considered the most influential physicist of the 20th century with his theory of relativity and major contributions to the development of atomic energy. Einstein ended up helping everyone around the world, thanks to his theory of relativity almost everyone in the world can have electricity in their homes and workplaces. Albert Einstein also helped in the making of the atomic bomb during WWII which would eventually end the war and save many lives, also destroying entire japanese cities. The reason Einstein is my hero is because he did not lead a life of luxury or lavish but instead a modest life full of wisdom. There are many heroes that are much more brave and mighty but I chose Albert Einstein for his intelligence and wisdom.

“You can’t see other people’s point of view when you have only one language,” declared psycholinguist, Frank Smith. Just as it is mentioned in this quote, foreign language is important; therefore, people should learn a foreign language at an early age. When learning a foreign language at an early age, it helps people to concentrate and increase comprehension skills. Also, at a young age, the mind is fresh, so the person can take in more information and can easily master a foreign language. In addition, most secondary schools, universities, and jobs require a foreign language to be known. People should learn a foreign language at an early age, because it helps young learner’s learning skills, makes it easier to perfect/acquire a new language, and helps to prepare for schools.
