Fraunken-au-main, Germany, is traditionally credited with orginating the frankfurter.

None Provided - 1,362 words
On November 18th of 1918, Germany, a member of the Central Powers, surrendered unconditionally to the allies. World War I had ended with a total of 37 million casualties, including 9 million dead combatants.

A year later, in June of 1919, the leaders of the Allies met at the Palace of Versailles to decide on the peace settlement after World War I. The treaty, which ...

Cut off from the rest of the world I had no one to bother me and I was forced to become original." The above quote was said by Franz Joseph Haydn (1732 - 1809) during the later years of his life and it refers to the time he spent in Esterhaza.

Russian Romantic Music And Tchaikovsky - 1,576 words
Russian Romantic Music and Tchaikovsky Russian music bears its own styles and emotions, free from the outside influence of other European countries during the Romantic period. Politics play an indirect role in the development of Russian music, isolating the country both politically and musically. Until the Decembrist revolt in 1825, Russia was under the unrelenting rule of czars. Russia retained the ways of the old -- its caste system, its severity of censorship -- while the rest of Europe had already shed its Middle Age characteristics. Since the revolt, it had become fashionable for the educated public to promote social reform. Political activity in Russia was a dangerous game, likely to l ...

Satanism - 934 words
I am hoping I can somehow make this seem like a psychological report without making it lose any of it's important details. My goal in writing this paper is to hopefully make people understand and agree that Satanism is not a "Devil Worshipping," animal mutilating, child scarifying cult organization. The psychological thing comes in when people say Satanism is wrong or evil, they hear the word Satan and automatically assume that it must be bad. They make these assumptions without even taking the time to find the facts and understand them. I'll start off by saying that Satanists do not worship the devil! A Satanist believe that he or she as an individual rule their own destiny and are the god ...

Although the typical layman would immediately label him an oddball, those who are a little bit more familiar with Tim Burton would say that he's a beautiful mess. Burton was born August 25, 1958 in Burbank, California. He lived in typical suburbia, along with his brother and parents, although he never felt very attached to them. He felt much closer to the films of Vincent Price and the writings of Edgar Allan Poe. While his parents wanted him to go play outside and be "normal," he would rather soak into a 1950's horror movie, or just withdraw into his own mind, into his own world. When asked about his childhood, he responded, "I guess if there was a flavor [of childhood], I guess childhood w ...
