This battle awakened the crew and they give up perceived power in order to be successful. Then they’re victorious, the crew makes sacrifices and appeases in order to reach to victory. Also, I think German’s power of the U-boat will be too great for the enemy and the opponent will be destroyed. Furthermore, I don’t think the enemy will take this loss very well. Significance: The author is showing how powerful the U-boat is by winning the battle.

He explains that the strong can only be powerful when they make just choices, otherwise they will be overthrown by a united majority. Plato, and Socrates, introduces the idea that knowledge exists for the benefit of others, and that justice is no different. Therefore, rulers must exist to benefit others, or else they will rule no more. The Republic goes on to show many more examples throughout text, including why justice benefits the weak as well. Socrates argues that justice, when defined properly, is not subjective nor does it benefit only one group of people.
Poseidon turns the Phaeacian ship into stone to punish the Phaeacians for their obligations of assisting travelers and wayfarers. This raises an exception to xenos, the Greek moral code of hospitality. Zeus, throughout the Odyssey enforces this moral code and punishes those who do not follow its provisions. In book 13 he goes against this, as he approves of Poseidon’s punishment of the Phaeacians, who anger Poseidon by practicing good xenos and helping all travelers, including Odysseus, return home. Zeus says- “Earth shaker, you with your massive power, why moaning so?
Hunter and Ramsay are both well trained, two of the best people in the navy flied. Hunter was in Harford. But there was so much different in the character, the way they deal with tough circumstances, and the way they deal with other people around them.

After serving for big numbers of years in the navy he thought he knows all by heart, and he did not need to follow the saturation and the rules as he book says.
It represents a great man's journey through life with all its victories and heartbreaks. Because Odysseus is far from Ithaca and the only way home is by way of the sea, he shows lack of judgment when he incurs the wrath of the sea god, Poseidon, by blinding the god's son Polyphemus. The sea god answers the Cyclops' prayer by making Odysseus' struggle long and hard, assuring that he returns home alone and finds formidable problems in his household. Part of the appeal of The Odyssey is this universal journey that we all undertake, in ways great or
Hunt for Red October Background This movie, based on a best setting novel, is a masterpiece of cold war genre. Captain Remius, a Russian, has command of a nuclear submarine – Red October – with new stealth technology that renders it essentially invisible to radar detection. Remius sees it as a first strike weapon & elects to defect to the USA rather than leave the submarine with superiors bent on war.

Captain Mancuso, skipper of a US attack sub, eventually finds Remius, decides not to sink the Russian sub & now the plot thickens as both try to elude the Russian navy.
The state is also divided into three types of people, the workers, soldiers and the rulers. It is pretty obvious that sort of division seems awkward when we look at our own capitalist society. We have to keep in mind that in the republic that Plato is describing that each person is directed lead by education and the utmost care towards the work that they are to do all there might. The children in Plato’s republic are separated from their parents at birth and therefore get the same equal chance of becoming workers or rulers without any prejudice or family background getting in the way. The workers are the people that are best fitted to practice a specific form of labor.
The only thing standing in its way is a relatively small group of spiritually pure, morally principled, and incorruptible people — the ancient Athenians. Overcoming overwhelming odds ... the Athenians are able to defeat their far more powerful adversary simply through the force of their spirit. Sound familiar? Plato's Atlantean dialogues are essentially an ancient Greek As propaganda, the Atlantis legend is more about the heroic Athens than a sunken civilization; if Atlantis really existed today and was found, its residents would probably try to kill and enslave us all. It's clear that Plato made up Atlantis as a plot device for his stories because there no other records of it anywhere else in the world.
These developments changed the US policies of brinkmanship and massive retaliations, as these methods only worked while the USA remained militarily superior. The Cuban missile crisis showed how back dated these policies were, something Kennedy’s military advisors failed to notice, his understanding of the dangers and his controlled response helped save the USA from the most destructive war ever seen. However the military assured destruction that came with the power of the nuclear era forced the USA and USSR into the standoff of Cuba. This crisis was inevitable and the only way of bringing the arms race to the end. However the driving
