Media Coverage Of The Terrorist Attack - 527 words
That tightening in your throat, as if someone is squeezing it with a strong fist, just tight enough that you are unable to swallow, is the first sign of fear. And who better to put fear in the heart of viewers, than the Media. On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, tragedy struck in the US. By late morning, I was able to sit in the school theatre, and observe the country slowly deteriorating. I felt almost traumatized while watching as the news cast portrayed the disastrous mood. I clung to their every word, eager to be drowned in details of the horror. Much like every other spectator, I was rather perplexed when these particulars prove to be false. The media is widely known for being in the right ...

Lenin - 1,286 words
Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, or Lenin, was born on April 22, 1870, in the sleepy little town of Simbrisk, Russia. Childhood in Simbrisk was serene and pleasant for Lenin, and his father, Ilya Nikolaievich, was highly respected by many of the nobles in this province. Vladimir took just as much interest in his schoolwork than he did with his extra-curricular activities on the home front. He quickly impressed his teachers with his keen intelligence and his outstanding memory. He mastered his classes so brilliantly, that his father became alarmed and began to wonder if it was harmful for Vladimir to learn everything with such grace and ease. He was on another level from all the other students, and t ...

Zionism - 866 words
For at least two thousand years Jews were dispersed all over the world. Some of them inevitably assimilated with other nations. Yet many kept their identity as a nation by staying loyal to their religious faith and by their desire to survive as one people preserving common racial features and cultural traditions. Some European anti-Jewish tendencies and the suspicious attitude to Jews in oriental cultures contributed to their solidarity. For centuries Jews cherished the idea of returning to their native land. But it was only in the 19th century that the idea developed into a political movement called Zionism. At first the movement was not very popular among Jews. There were supporters, but m ...
