William Blake, historically known to for his enlightening enriching poems, “A Poison Tree” is one that transcends beyond all his work. In this essay I will interpret William Blake’s intentions on composing “A Poison Tree” and in my own words gauge what his thoughts and feelings were in writing it. “I was angry with my friend; I told my wrath, my wrath did end. I was angry with my foe; I told it not, my wrath did grow.” In this first portion of the poem I notice that there are two different
(insert introduction paragraph here) The Germans were the first to use poison gases in World War 1. They had the advantage at the beginning of the war. The first poison gas that was used in World War 1 was the Chlorine Gas in April 22 1915 during the battle of Ypres.

But while fruit juice sounds like it should be a healthy beverage choice, depending on the brand, you might be doing yourself just as much of a disservice as if you’d ordered a Pepsi.

“The effect of drugs on the synapse” Talia Coren Many drugs affect our health by altering the properties of synaptic transmission. Alcohol inhibits neurotransmission in two ways. First, it inhibits the excitatory channels on the post synaptic neuron. Next it lowers the rate if action potentials from the presynaptic neuron by 35%. Caffeine is drunk in our daily lives, whether it’s in Coffee, coke etc. it all has an effect on our synaptic transmission. At synapses where adenosine is the primary
Poison gas was probably one of the most feared weapons from World War One. Poison gas was indiscriminate and could be used on the trenches even when no attack was going on. Whereas the machine gun killed more soldiers overall during the war death was frequently instant or not drawn out and soldiers could find some shelter in bomb/shell craters from gunfire.
