Beloved And Numerology - 1,767 words
In literature, numbers are used to communicate important messages to the reader. The author uses references to numbers to strengthen the important ideas of the novel. In many cultures numbers carry an important or significant meaning to them. These numbers can carry a meaning more efficiently than using only words. In Beloved, Toni Morrison uses references to numbers to emphasize the significant ideas of the novel. Morrison uses these numbers to represent the persistence of slavery brought upon in Sethes life, her childrens life, Paul D.s life, and Baby Suggs life, after slavery has ended. These references to numbers are important because they show how these characters are affected after it ...

Damon And Pythias - 764 words
After reading Damon and Pythias, I realized that the value of friendship portrayed in the story is also relative to me. As Damon had faith trust and honor, I remember such a friend who had faith, trust and honor in me. Such a friend is incomparable to all wealth and power this life offers. From what I remember, it was back in 1993 - I was on one of my expeditions in the misty jungles of Africa. I befriended a native there who spoke English fairly well. We drove through the jungles in my Jeep, searching for ancient pieces of art. I was an art historian looking for further roots that influenced Egyptian art. We began to know each other pretty well as time passed. I learned his name was Mutopa. ...

Slavery - 1,105 words
A slave is a human being who is owned by another human being through birth, purchase, or capture. A slave can be bought, sold, hired out, exchanged, given as a gift, or inherited. They dont have rights, the law doesnt protect them, and their masters rule over them. Their masters can treat them as they wish, and the slaves work with no pays what so ever. Since ancient times, people of all cultures were deprived of their rights through slavery. Many people may wonder about when slavery began or how it started. Well, about 10,000 years ago, people developed farming which gave them more food than they desired. Therefore, they came up with a theory, instead of killing their enemies, why cant they ...

It is carried out in the United States in the following harsh ways: electrocution, hanging, firing squad, lethal injection, and the gas chamber. The death penalty has imposed throughout history for many crimes, ranging from blasphemy and treason to petty theft and murder. Ancient Roman and Mosaic Law endorsed the notion of retaliation; they believed in the rule of "an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth." Similarly, the ancient Egyptians, Assyrians, and Greeks all executed citizens for a variety of crimes. The most known people to be executed were ...

The Calendar - 1,758 words
Kara Byers 1CH tutor: Dr. Gerard McCartan It took several thousand years to establish a satisfactory calendar. Even in this century not all the countries in Europe kept the same calendar. Why was it so difficult? Do we really need an accurate means of recording civil time? Astronomy originated earlier in human history than the other natural sciences. In the earliest civilisations, the divine or occult was used to explain the movement of the stars and the Sun: the Aztecs, for example, believed that the Sun had to be nourished with a sacrifice of blood and a beating human heart, or else it would vanish. In those dark days there was no conflict between science and religion: a priest, magician o ...

Mummification in ancient Egypt was a very long and expensive process. From start to finish, it took about seventy days to embalm a body. Since the Egyptians believed that mummification was essential for passage to the afterlife, people were mummified and buried as well as they could possibly afford. High-ranking officials, priests and other nobles who had served the pharaoh and his queen had fairly elaborate burials. The pharaohs, who were believed to become gods when they died, had the most magnificent burials of all. In the case of a royal or noble burial, the embalmers set up workshops near the tomb of the mummy. The art of Egyptian mummification consisted of many steps. First, the body w ...

Joe Mamma - 828 words
The Apis Bull originated in Memphis, cult of Serapis during the reign of Ptolemy I. Serapis was the god whose association with Osiris, the god of the dead, formed the name Asar-Hapi. Asar is the Egyptian name of Osiris and Hapi was the name given to the Apis Bull which was the object of worship at Memphis. The Greeks combined the two together to form Zaparrus. Even though it is not quite clear, it is certain that Serapis is the shape Apis took after death. "Apis is called the "life of Osiris, the lord of heaven, tem (with) his horns (in) his head ."He is said to give life, strength, and health to thy nostrils forever."

If A Body Catchs A Body - 1,261 words
Holden Caulfield's monologue in The Catcher in the Rye is an examination of one boy's struggle of entering into adulthood. He is a classic screw up with no goals, just as Stradlater, his roommate at Percey, states; "you don't do one damn thing the way you're supposed to" (Salinger 41). It is really Holden's avoidance of having to grow up and his fears related to it. It is because of Holden's fears the he becomes so full of despair and loneliness and is often nauseated by the world around him (Lunquist 38-9). He continually puts himself into situations that only lead to his personal pain or revulsion, and then brood on them repetitively after. He could in some respects be defined as a masochi ...

Egypt - 586 words
Tutankhamen was born Tutankhaten in Malkata, a palace in the south of Egypt. To this day, his parentsis unknown, but most historians believe he is the son of the old Pharaoh Amenhotep III and his chief wife, Queen Tiye. Tutankhaten was born at a time of political turmoil because Amenhotep III's regent and successor, Tutankhaten's older brother, Akhenhaten was a religious misbeliever whose beliefs divided the country. The Ancient Egyptians were polytheistic, which means they believed in more than one god. Akhenhaten believed in only one god, Aten, the sun disc, and because of that, he desecrated the temples and banned the worship of all other Gods in the Egyptian temples. Tutankhaten, though ...

Capital Punishment - 562 words
Capital punishment has been occurring within the United States for over two centuries. A concept first created by the ancient Egyptians, and is still used in todays society of crime and punishment. Although enforced for hundreds of years, the topic was not morally debated until recent times. Many believe that execution is justifiable, and should therefore be used, but an overwhelming number of people oppose it, saying not only is it unconstitutional, but immoral, ineffective and racist. Nevertheless, those who support the abolition of the death penalty for these reasons are entirely wrong. One of the focal points of those who oppose to the death penalty is that its unconstitutional. Their re ...

Pyramids - 1,250 words
There are days when the sand blows ceaselessly, blanketing the remains of a powerful dynasty that ruled Egypt 5,000 years ago. When the wind dies down and the sands are still, a long shadow casts a wedge of darkness across the Sahara, creeping ever longer as the north African sun sinks beyond the horizon. This is where our history of Egypt begins, in the shadow of the Great Pyramid of Giza, where stone meets sky as a testament to one of the greatest civilizations on earth. Here, on the plateau of Giza, 2,300,000 blocks of stone, some weighing as much as 9 tons, were used to build an eternal tomb for a divine king. Five thousand years ago, the fourth dynasty of Egypt's Old Kingdom was a highl ...

There has been many controversies in the history of the United States, ranging from abortion to gun control, but capital punishment has been one of the most hotly contested issues in recent decades. Capital punishment is the legal infliction of the death penalty on persons convicted of a crime (Cox). It is not intended to inflict any physical pain or any torture; it is only another form of punishment. It is irrevocable because it removes those punished from society permanently, instead of temporarily imprisoning them. The usual alternative to the death penalty is life-long imprisonment. Capital punishment is a method of retributive punishment as old as civilization itself. The death penalty ...

In the ancient times (4000-30B.C.) the Egyptian Pharaohs were the most powerful people on the planet. They had sophisticated methods for building and irrigation.
