Another great advantage of cannons is that they could be shot from far away and still generate the same destruction. Chinese emperors tried their best to keep the incredible invention a secret. Meanwhile, around the 1100’s, the secret was revealed. It reached Japan, Islam, and then Europe. Unfortunately, West Africa was defeated by Europe in the 1400’s because they had not heard about the discovery of gunpowder yet.
The 1960s was one of the most controversial decades in American history. The 1960s was a decade of new democratic ideals. People from all races fought against discrimination and segregation. John F. Kennedy and MLK Jr. were assassinated and the culture in the 1960s reflected the social changes that were happening at the time. Although the African-American Civil Rights Movement started in the mid-1950s, it escalated in the 1960s.
Since the start of the Cold War, people have been afraid from a bomb like no other in history. Nuclear warfare struck lives of many every since the end of World War II which ended by a atom bomb dropped on Japan wiping out everything in its path. Cormac Mccarthy was a passionate writer and was inspired and terrified by this idea and wrote the Marvelous story The Road.Even though some might disagree with the powerful reality of a possible post apocalyptic hazard. Viewer of the The road would call it bleak due to the natural and lack of color in the film. There was many good reasons for this.
Twenty-four hundred years later, chemical warfare still has little strategic value until World War I. In chapter five, Kean discusses how chlorine and bromine were first experimented during World War I. The French first practiced with bromine which proved to be ineffective when the shells had no immediate effect on the German troops. Soon after the attempt, a famous Jewish-German scientist named Fritz Haber emerged with big contributions to German warfare. He began a process to “capture” nitrogen and created an efficient killing explosive.
It’s important to note that the researchers of this experiment did not take any leadership roles which is different from the SPE. They concluded that chaos comes from the less powered individuals identifying with more violent regimes and their leaders just like when I was watching the Interview and the North Korean leader was sitting in a tank listening to Katy Perry. The BBC study also failed to show the brutality of the guards like in the SPE so no paper bags for those prisoners. This study is different from older studies including Gray’s study about his decisions in his evaluation because the authors of the introductory textbooks have more information on the SPE than studies from the past. Thank god for the advancement of technology.
It stops him from making and doing helpful things. His flaw is that he is too strong to create swords that can help him defeat his opponents. As long as they are not iron, he can create them. In the Epic Hero PowerPoint, Belinda Jones states that: “In Beowulf, he is so strong, he is unable to wield any swords made of iron because they break” (Jones 27). This is a flaw because when he is fighting the dragon, he does not have a sword that can help him so it is harder for Beowulf to slaw the dragon.
Continuing conflict with the Safavid Empire through much of the period due to not wanting Shi’ a Islam to spread and took Iraq from Safavids. The Ottoman Empire was the most powerful empire military wise, but government corruption prevented necessary advancements to be made and thus gave the empire no political power amongst other regions. Intellectual The Ottoman Empire Used advanced gunpowder and military equipment to advance into new territories. Lacked innovated technology compared to other advancing empires. Remained the same technologically due to a lack of innovation versus other competing empires advancing.
The Cold War was not a very “cold war” or fought in a cold weather, it was a war between the USA and the Soviet Union. Both countries owned the weapon of mass destruction, namely, the atomic bomb. The atomic bomb is what killed masses of people in the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WW2. In both nations people were all afraid of atomic bombs so they practiced a kind of self defense technique called “duck and cover”. This method imitated the turtle’s defense technique, hiding back inside its shell when danger was near.
At the beginning of this time period medicine was infrequent. There were only problems no solution; Infectious diseases such as The Great Plague were spreading but there we no medication for it. To cure the horrible epidemics they tried herbal remedies made out of plant and animals which had little effect on the patients due to lack medical knowledge. People again started to believe at the theory of four humors (Aristotle) and treatments by opposite humors (Galen) They used alcohol as a pain killers but it was hardly used due to the
They do not know the disadvantages of using the makeup, because nobody tells them. They are told that it is used to make you beautiful, not that a chemical in your moisturizer may cause you to get cancer. All of these ingredients called the “Dirty Dozen” don’t only affect your outer self but they affect the inside of your body too. Most of these harmful products contain xenoestrogen which is any product of industrial or chemical processing that have estrogen like effects. In Source B, a YouTube video titled “Dirty Dozen Toxic Cosmetic Ingredients,” the doctor says, “A lot of the time it’s because we’re developing this toxic accumulation of man-made or synthetic estrogen also known as xenoestrogen.
In Jay Hardy article, “Medical Wisdom Challenged by a Cocktail” analyzes the discovery of the real cause of gastric ulcers. Also, he talked about Marshall’s struggle trying to prove his theory in an outrageous way. Most scientists thought the cause of stomach ulcers before Warren and Marshall’s discovery were stress, excess acid, and eating spicy food. However, German scientists researched that a spiral-shaped bacterium inhabited that was lining of the human stomach, but they couldn’t culture the organism. So, the research on stomach ulcers were forgotten.
A and b started to liquefy as did the evidence sample. It wouldn 't be sample c because nothing reacted. Sample d would fit because it made a sizzling noise, just like the evidence sample. The evidence seems to be Ms. Tavaglione. The foot powder ingredients contained was gelatin, detergent, baking soda, salt, and talc.
Houses have always been fireproof, take my word for it’ ”(Bradbury 6). This simple question proves how uneducated people are on the topic of history. Because Montag, a man with ten years of experience as a fireman, cannot remember a past without fire-proof houses. The government’s decision in eliminating books entirely from their world resulted in limited information people retain and understand. Ignorance and mental deficiencies are outcomes from the restriction
In the book insert scientist/s found that this organism could survive and reproduce without proteins, which they thought all living things needed, insert pg#. The ending could have been made better if it included the answer to this and the many other scientific questions the asked about the strain but didn’t get to answer, such as insert questions. From the epilogue, insert pg #, we now that NASA is delaying all other manned spacecrafts due to, insert name of fallen space craft, and its mechanical failure which led to its crashing and the spread of the Andromeda strain. (Or it crashed following the Andromeda strain). Due to the events of the story, one would assume that NASA would fix any mechanical failures and better sanitizes returning probes.
The efficiency of the heavy artillery and the craters that the shells formed made horses useless which led to horses not being used in more modern wars. Secondly, the idea behind heavy artillery is still used in more modern wars. The Soviet Union and the United States of America
