This story shows how common sense takes place through tough times and the matter of life and death. Author Jack London, was born in San Francisco in 1876 and grew up to become the most successful writer in America during the early twentieth century. London wrote many stories that were about man and animal versus nature and the survival of hard times in the wild, mainly based off his own experiences. He was a man that desired wildlife, nature, and adventure; which influenced him to write all his stories based on nature and survival in the wild. As a child, he dropped out of school at the age of 14 to travel and explore, but went back to become a writer later on in his life.
Under the ironic and spurious guise of humanitarianism, Leopold built himself an empire in central Africa, lining his pockets and satisfying his egotism, becoming the largest individual landowner in the world, while the brutality of his reign slashed the Congolese population by 10 million people, or approximately in half (Hochschild, 233). The narrative is uplifting at points as it also tells the story of the courageous few Africans, Europeans, and Americans that stood up to Leopold in what, in hindsight, was the first major humanitarian effort of the twentieth century (Straus). The book strikes a fine balance between literary fiction and statistical evidence. Hochschild often invokes Joseph Conrad’s novella Heart of Darkness as an allegory, despite academia’s typical regard for that work as fiction. In fact, Hochschild spends nearly an entire chapter, “Meeting Mr. Kurtz,” on the comparison.
Title: Report on Ernest Everett Just Scientist: Ernest Everett Just - Male Date Of Birth: August 14, 1883 He was born in the discriminative conditions of the South and yet, Ernest Everett Just made his way up to become one of the most highly respected scientists of his time, graduating magna cum laude (with very great honour in Latin) from Dartmouth College in 1907, having earned a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Chicago in 1916, and teaching at Howard University in Washington, D.C. from 1909 until his death in 1941. Just’s key contributions were served to enhance our understanding of the main parts of early biological development. He focused on fertilization, cell division, artificial parthenogenesis, the physiology of cell development, and the effects of dehydration and ultraviolet radiation on cell and chromosome structure. Ernest Just produced ground-breaking research in cell biology at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts. It had been at the Woods Hole laboratories when he’d made and important discovery about cell cleavage, the successive cell divisions leading to the formation of the embryo.
One of Justinian’s most acclaimed generals a man called Belisarius, who in various military operations lasting for several decades would out wit, out manoeuvre and out fight numerous different antagonists, such as the barbarian hordes of the Goths, Vandals and Avars to the more civilized professional forces of the Persians. During Belisarius’ long years of service he conquered vast amounts of territories, saved his nation as well as his Emperor. In this essay I will concentrate on what must rank as one of the greatest military operations of all time: the re-conquest of Africa in A.D. 533. The campaign to re-capture Africa has for the most part been simply summarized by historians in a few paragraphs or dismissed entirely as an ‘easy’ victory with very consideration of the facts. Most student of military history understand that many of these ‘easy’ victories often are the result of a combination of incredible, logistics, planning, generalship and even sometimes an ounce of luck.
They fought each other to take control of slavery in America. After half of the Civil War had passed, President Lincoln had a significant speech in Gettysburg. It created people’s trust in Lincoln and motivated people fighting for anti-slavery. The president also mentioned that the United States passed through many obstacles to become a huge country, and he ensured that the Civil War was a test that would show that this nation can be long enduring. In my opinion, the Gettysburg Address is such a great speech because of its power opening, brevity, and a perusable ending.
