Carter Lindberg states in his book The European Reformations, An initial move to control the complicated and multifaceted reality of the Reformation is to define the terms used for it and the era it covers. In order to secure Luther in the annuals of history as a bad ass, one must not only clarify the characteristics of that title, but also view his accomplishments in a 21st Century frame of reference.

Is Britain Governed By A System Of Prime Ministerial Government? - 1,346 words
As with much of Britains unwritten constitution, the role of Prime Minister emerged by chance, owing more to the apathy of King George I (who couldnt be bothered attending cabinet meetings) than any kind of grand plan. He appointed a sycophantic Member of Parliament to attend cabinet meetings on his behalf. His name was Robert Walpole. Nearly 300 years later many traditions still remain. The monarchy is still the head of state de jure with Royal prerogatives necessary to rubber stamp any parliamentary legislation (the Royal Assent). The Royal prerogative also extends to foreign policy, including the ability to declare war or peace. However not since Queen Victoria has the monarchy exercised ...

English Assignment - Alchohol Ads/discourse - 828 words
Alcohol And Advertising By Roberto It is not fair to say that all people drink to gain acceptance, or that all people use drinking to create a new self image. Quite often in life, however, even those who do not form an addiction, about three out of four individuals, have probably drank at one time to ease nerves and not worry so much what others think. Whether this is right or wrong per individual, it is very much a part of the Australian culture. Advertising agencies are definitely not the last ones to realize this. Their ads are manipulative in camouflaging dangerous realities linked to alcohol consumption. Many consumers are informed that alcohol is an addictive substance, which may cause ...
