The closest representation in the US, however, is the Third Indiana Statehouse; it even has the same proportions. Several national monuments, museums and memorials are influenced by the Parthenon; one such memorial is the Lincoln Memorial. They chose the Parthenon as influence because it seemed the most fitting tribute to the president. Tributes around the world mirror the majesty of the classical temple. Moscow University in Russia sports towering Doric columns and Walhalla was built to show a dedication and connection from Germany to Greece.
The great Gatsby and American Beauty Paired text studies In what ways are the two texts connected or interrelated? To what extent do the texts reflect the values, attitudes and beliefs of the society, culture or historical period in which they were created and/or set? Both F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1926 novel, The Great Gatsby and Sam Mendes' film, American Beauty (1999) cannot fail to impress the reader or audience on the likeness surrounding the two. Even though both texts are established in America, they are set in different eras; whereas The Great Gatsby is set in the roaring twenties’ American beauty is a contemporary film. Both texts have strong social and historical context, nevertheless, the texts are connected through their exploration of several themes and issues which are of concern to contemporary readers and viewers.
One aspect of his reign that is often seen in a positive light is the artistic reform that occurred in the Amarna period. Overall he had a short reign that did not achieve much, and yet did not leave much of a negative impact on Egypt. Akhenaten's reign brought about massive religious reform, deemed by most as a failure. His choice to switch from the traditional worship of many gods to the worship of only one god brought about massive social and political changes in Egypt. Certainly these changes were massive, quite abrupt and differed drastically from the norm; however that does not necessarily make them bad.
One that stands out the most is the Hall of Noble Words at the eastern end of the library. The hall was named for the noble words that are painted on the concrete ceiling beams. Dr. Battle again was the one who selected these quotes. These words are from a variety of sources including the Bible, classical and modern poetry, an inscription on the Temple at Delphi, and famous Texans. The beams supports contain the printer’s marks of famous early printers.
However, these reductions only concerned capital ships which included battleships, battle cruisers and aircraft carriers and did not include destroyers, cruisers and U-boats, which would prove essential in the Second World War. Harding’s conservative
Polished rose travertine stone line the rotunda, lobby and halls on the first floor. As you enter the rotunda you will notice the state seal embedded on the floor. The seal and Pioneer were sculpted by Ulric Ellerhausen. The rotunda walls are covered with four murals that represent pieces of Oregon history. The senate is on the left side of the building and the house is on the right.
Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812-1852) was a famous architect and designer who dissented from traditional classical designs to favour the revival of Gothic architecture which he believed would result in a return to a much better past by the representation of a Christian style as he believed the classical styles to be pagan and out of place within Northern Europe (Richardson, McKellar, Woods, 2008, p109). Pugin wanted to return to the Gothic style which existed prior to the Protestant Reformation, however, he did not necessarily consider himself a dissenter but a radical traditionalist (Richardson, McKellar, Woods, 2008, p131) who strongly believed that returning to the Gothic style was merely returning it back to the English style. Pugin certainly did dissent from religion by converting in 1835 from his Protestant upbringing to Roman Catholicism as he believed he had a moral obligation to do so as this was the dominant style when Britain was Roman Catholic (Richardson, McKellar, Woods, 2008 p121). Pugin confirmed his beliefs in the revival of Gothic architecture by the publication of writings and “Contrasts” was at the time seen to be very controversial as he blamed the Reformation and Protestantism for architectural decline. Pugin obtained his inspiration from visiting other European Countries, especially Lubeck in North East Germany where the Roman Catholic Church was the predominant style and enabled Pugin to incorporate their architectural designs into his own work.

Its pedestrian-oriented design encourages residents and workers to drive their cars less and ride mass transit more. Some TOD projects are a significant source of non-farebox revenue for the participating transit agency.
The source is limited in some ways as it does not discuss the damage done to the industry in places such as docklands and factories. The Germans targeted places along the river Thames as that was where most of the factories were. Also, the source indicates that the damage and impact that the Zeppelins created was not going The source is a secondary source as it was published in 2009, 91 years after the end of world war one. Although it is secondary, the source is still well researched meaning it is unlikely to have errors. It is not biast as it doesn’t take sides which makes it fairly reliable.
180 The Confederation of Canada, beginning in 1867, was a progressive unification of British North American colonies. By 1870, there were already seven provinces in the Dominion of Canada. British Columbia’s decision to join the Confederation of Canada was due to a combination of the colony’s economic and political needs rather than an amorous bond. In the late 1860’s, there were generally three choices for the British colony of British Columbia: to remain as a British colony, to be annexed to the United States of America, or to become part of the Confederation of Canada. There were four key factors that led British Columbia to join the Confederation.
