Here, Faber is in his house telling Montag about how books bring life into the world. Faber is letting Montag know that books are important not because they are books, but because of their meaning. As difficult as they can be to deal with, the pores are the perfect imperfections needed to make the world great. Bradbury shows that books and knowledge are vital and that censoring books robs the world of individuality and freedom. “Give a man a few lines of verse and he thinks he’s the lord of all creation.”(Bradbury 143).
Harker discovers Dracula’s enthusiasm about England, apart from significant business interests: “The books were of the most varied kind, history, geography, politics, political economy, botany, geology, law, all relating to England and English life and customs and manners.”(Stoker 22). He speaks German and “excellent English, but with a strange intonation.” (Stoker 17). Stoker conveys that foreigners seem as enthusiastic about England as England is about other countries. They feared that the colonised countries would use the gained knowledge against them. Eastern Europe is aware of multiple nations and is proud of it, as Dracula explains, he is a proud Szekely in whose “veins flows the blood of many brave races.” (Stoker 33).
Jefferson is unhappy with how Adams is running the country, so, he decides to run against him in the next election. This is the point where things begin to heat up and rhetoric comes into play. Angry that Jefferson has decided to run against him, Adams uses the newspaper to start a smear campaign against Jefferson. He does this with help from ethos, the "persuasion through the audience 's perception of the speaker", (Austin 664) and pathos, the “appeals to emotion.” (Austin 177) Because Adams is president people respect him and what he says, they take him on his word. Adams uses his credibility as president to manipulate the public into thinking terrible things about Jefferson.
Kings Charles I and His Hand in The Civil War James I of England, the Predecessor and father of Charles I, had his crown by negotiating with Elizabeths Secretary of state and the sitting government. James I arrived to cheering and hopeful crowds in London and made great contributions to Great Britain. His son Charles I however, was well hated to say the least and only saw crowds at his own execution. Though many are quick to say that Charles I is one of the worst Kings in the history of England, Mark Kishlansky has argued that historians have consistently misread his character and the role played by King Charles leading up to The Civil War in England. Kishlansky argues that the view of Charles and his reign over England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1625 to 1649 has been misinterpreted and spun to fit the historic narrative of a Tyrant King.
The two pharaohs I will be comparing are going to be Ramses II and khufu. I chose these two because I think they are the most interesting pharaohs of the ones that we learned about. The first thing I am going compare is the monuments that each of them made. Ramses built two temples at Abu Simbel and he also built the Ramesseum where he was put when he died. Khufu built the Pyramids of Giza and the Khufu ship.
The Core Curriculum Conundrum The United States has hundreds of Universities, each with their own self-proclaimed “strengths.” Amongst the engineering, military, and art schools stands a branch of institutions whose aim is exactly the opposite of this. Liberal arts institutions pride themselves on not being strong only in one specific area but rather a broad spectrum of disciplines. When one enters a liberal arts school, they walk into a community with an emphasis on a holistic, well cultured education. At Boston College (BC), this multi-disciplinary education style is more structured than other institutions. BC mandates students take “core classes” which include everything from classes in cultural diversity to natural sciences to theology.

Begin the book, with the infamous Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton duel to entice readers, Ellis shows the underlining factors of the duel as well as intensity of American politics. Ellis displays Col. Burr’s reasoning for his challenge “And it is perfectly possible that Burr’s smoldering hatred for Hamilton had reached such intensity, that once he had his tormentor standing helplessly in his sights, no rational calculation of his own best interests was operative at all.” Not only did American politicians viciously and tactfully undermine each other, but also encouraged staff members, “ In the meantime, Adams made one of the biggest mistakes of his presidency by keeping most of Washington's cabinet members as his own. They all had more loyalty to Hamilton than to the new president, and would continue to work against Adams's plans.” Following presidents and high level political officials would avoid Adam’s mistake. Even Jefferson and Adam’s friendship was halted by Jefferson’s plots, “While affecting disinterest and detachment, he secretly hiring scandalmongers like James Callender to libel Adams with outrageous charges: Adams was mentally deranged; Adams intended to have himself crowned as an American monarch; Adams planned to appoint John Quincy his successor to the presidency.” Once elected, Jefferson dismissed Callender, who revealed that Jefferson had subsidized his
