(As you can guess, different fuels begin burning at different temperatures.) Heat or ignition sources lift fuel (combustible material) to its activation energy to start the fire. The fire generates heat which sustains the chemical reaction; the blaze continues and spreads. Some firefighting tactics shield the fuel from air (oxygen) to extinguish the blaze. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers expel a cold fog of CO2 that cuts a fire off from its air supply.
The writer of this article talks about how the basement isn’t just a hiding place for a Jew or a refuge to learn but it is a place to rebel against authority when Max transforms it into a setting for creative/political activity by painting over Hitler’s Mein Kampf erasing Hitler’s authority and becoming his own authority.

The drawing highlights the elegance and beauty of the singer. Degas puts us on stage next to the performer who looks to be singing the way her neck is lifted. There is motion in her left hand and arm as it gestures up to her shoulder. Light is focused on her face and chest area, like spotlights from below in a theatre. This drawing was drawn on light blue paper.
When she foams at the mouth during her transformation, the foam makes the grass on the ground wither and die as the poem says “Her mouth foam’d, and the grass, therewith besprent, // Wither’d at dew”. This suggests that she has some form of evil within her body that causes all living things to die when her foam comes into contact with them. This portrays Lamia as a villain as it shows that she is not able to live in the real world due to this evil that supposedly lies within her. It could also show that her body and spirit are so impure that they taint all living things and so she should be kept away from the real world; she should stay within her own ethereal world. This links in with the fact that she is a serpent and all the negative connotations associated with being a serpent, which leads back to the Bible, to the fall of Adam and Eve, where the serpent tempts Eve to take the apple from the Garden of Eden.
A fireman was killed by a body falling from the sky. But he reached for her hand and she reached for his hand and they leaped out the window holding hands. The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, wrote John the Apostle, and the elements shall melt with a fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. I try to whisper prayers for the sudden dead and the harrowed families of the dead and the screaming souls of the murderers but I keep coming back to his hand and her hand nestled in each other with such extraordinary ordinary succinct ancient naked stunning perfect simple ferocious love. There is no fear in love, wrote John, but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath
Self-Portrait as Wunderkabinett By: JULIE HEFFERNAN Oil painting 82 x 58 inches Describe: Julie Heffernan used oil crayons to paint Wunderkabinett. She used a variety of different soft and dark colors within the painting. This portrait takes place in mid 1900s Victorian ball room; the room is dark green with gold trimmings on the top of the room, and it has a similar Michelangelo, Sistine Shapel painting on the ceiling. In the center of the large room is a chandelier hanging down from the ceiling with a variety of colored balls spilling out from the chandelier and landing on the floor. The chandelier stretches halfway down the room, with many birds flying around the chandelier from the bottom right side, curving around the chandelier, and ending up on the upper left hand corner.
Analysis: 1. The candle getting smaller and the wax melting are physical changes. Wick turning black, candle having rain drop shaped fire, and the fire having different colored layers are all chemical changes. 2. The candle wax burns as a vapor because when the smoke it’s put into the other flame, the flame gets bigger which means it’s feeding off of the smoke.
Violence Even though Hosseini has stated that he wanted to remind people of a peaceful Afghanistan, he also does the service of revealing the suffering the nation has experienced in a quarter century of conflict. Violence pervades the novel, even in the seemingly innocuous activity of kite fighting. Not only is kite fighting violent because it is a kind of battle, but boys injure their hands when they participate. This fact suggests that Afghanistan has become a place where joy cannot exist separately from pain; Afghans' memories of their homeland are tainted with suffering. The entire novel centers around a single act of violence, Hassan's rape, and the sin Amir commits by pretending that violence did not occur.
Arte History 101 Ancient Greek Vases In the Greek geometric period, the black figured funeral vase, showed the design of a dead chariot racer\warrior on his funeral pyre, with his family and friends grieving for him. Like many vases from the geometric period, the people and animals shown in the design were composed of geometric shapes, and the shapes took a predominance over the people. The horses and the chariots give us clues that it was a chariot racer who most likely died, the only way to distinguish the men from the women, are their actions. Scholars believe that the characters who are clutching their heads to be the females, who scratched at their faces and pulled their hair in grieve. It was funeral vase, and was used for funeral ceremonies.
