For the first few years, it seemed as though the French would win—and they did indeed win several major battles—but strategic British alliances with the Native Americans, adapted combat tactics, and stubborn English determination, turned the fighting in favor of the British. As time dragged on, French forces grew weaker and wearier. Their Indian allies deserted them. Finally, the French and Indian War culminated with an enormous French defeat at Quebec in September of 1759: the Battle of the Plains of Abraham (otherwise known as the Battle of Quebec). In a daring attack on the city, Major General James Wolfe and his 4,500 troops scaled an almost impassable cliff during the night.

| A King and his Microphone | An analysis of Tom Hooper’s The King’s SpeechCindy ZhangPeriod 4Kelso2012.01.18 | | Tom Hooper’s 2010 film, The King’s Speech unravels the story of King George VI’s journey to overcome his speech impediment. As the film initiates, George VI (“Bertie”) is the Duke of York and is required to speak for his father, King George V. Intimidated by the microphone, the sound of his own voice, and the millions of eyes gazing back at him at the venue, he is unable to recite his speech without stammering. Saddened by her husband’s failure at public speaking and determined to fix his problem, Bertie’s wife, Queen Elizabeth, scouts out Lionel Logue, a private speech consultant, to coach Bertie with his stuttering. Although first unwilling to comply with Lionel’s eccentric speech exercises, Bertie soon becomes close acquaintances with Lionel and visits his consultation room frequently as his equal. As the film progresses, Bertie’s father, King George V, dies and leaves the responsibility of the reign to Bertie’s brother, King Edward VIII.
She first kneels, begging him to share his secrets, and then stands up dramatically, stating, "Think you I am no stronger than my sex, / Being so fathered and so husbanded?" (2.1.295-6), and stabs herself in the thigh to prove her strength. Brutus capitulates to Portia, acknowledging her strength.

The last of Marie Jean Pascal and Jean Gilbert Carème’s 25 children was christened in honor of Queen Marie Antoinette, which shortly thereafter, may not have been such a good idea as Royalist sentiment in Paris was in short supply and thus, he came to be called as Antoinin. (Kelly 33) Life during the French Revolution was not easy and during the Autumn of 1792, he was taken from his home by his father and abandoned at the busy Maine gate of Paris. Antoinin’s father made this speech to his son: “Go, go and fare well my child. The world is large, chances are many. Leave us to our squalid poverty; it is our lot.
Lady Percy sees that Hotspur's preoccupation prevents him from sleeping, and she begs him to tell her what weighs so heavily on his mind. But Hotspur completely ignores her, and instead begins to speak to a servant that has just passed by about military matters (2.3.64-72). Hotspur's obsession with honor clouds his judgment and he becomes “drunk with choler” (1.3.129). He is so offended by the king refusing to ransom Mortimer that he will not listen to reason. Since he is so focused on doing the “honorable” thing, he ends up leading himself to his own defeat at Shrewsbury
The source details illustrate the doctor’s opposition the NHS through the sick faces and general unhappiness of the cartoon doctors as they line up to take their ‘medicine’ from the NHS labelled pot. “It still tastes awful” this quote shows the doctors unwilling acceptance of the NHS as they are swallowing the ‘medicine’ but the nasty taste it leaves in their mouths show that it wasn’t happily done.

Source 3 also referrers to Bevan being powerful as it says ‘I won only by stuffing their mouths with gold” This implies that the doctors had no choice with the language used, for example ‘stuffing’.
