A brief summary of the story My Father's Tragedy by Carlos Bulosan is based around cockfighting. A father and his children grow up cockfighting more than being a family.
As a young orphan, Jane is sent to live with her uncle, who dies soon after her arrival. Jane is left in the care of her cruel aunt, who sends her to Lowood School to become a… governess. Though conditions at the school are very poor, Jane makes friends there and finishes her education, obtaining a position as governess to the young Adele at a house called Thornfield. The master of the house, Edward Rochester, is seldom home, so Jane spends most of her time with Adele and the housekeeper, Mrs. Fairfax. Strange events occur at Thornfield. Jane awakens one night to smell of smoke and discovers Rochester asleep with his bed on fire. Also, she frequently hears creepy, startling noises. After saving Rochester, Jane realizes that she loves him but is too proud to confess her feelings. Rochester has a group of guests over to Thornfield, and they treat Jane as a servant, especially Blanche Ingram, whom Rochester is expected to marry. Mrs. Reed, Jane's former caretaker, sends for Jane as she is on her deathbed. She admits to Jane that once a John Eyre, some relative of Jane's, offered to adopt the girl, but Mrs. Reed maliciously lied that Jane had died in the typhoid epidemic that affected Lowood. After her visit, Jane returns to Thornfield and Rochester asks for her hand. She gladly consents, but a few nights before their wedding Jane wakes up to find a woman in her room wearing Jane's veil. Terrified, she faints, but Rochester convinces her she was imagining things. At their wedding the secret is revealed that Rochester is already married. He takes the wedding party to the attic to reveal his wife, Bertha, who went mad shortly after their marriage 15 years before. Shocked, Jane leaves and is a poor beggar until she meets Reverend Rivers and goes to live with him and his two sisters. There, Jane realizes that John Eyre has died and left his fortune to her. The Rivers, she discovers, are her cousins. The Reverend, though he does not love her, wishes to marry Jane because he believes she will make a good wife and missionary. Jane does not love him either, but feels obligated to accept his hand. One night, Jane hears Rochester calling to her. She returns to Thornfield and finds the house burned down at the hands of Bertha. Rochester tried but failed to save her, and he lost his sight in the process. Jane and Rochester marry. Sorry it's still so long, but with a book like Jane Eyre, this is probably one of the shortest summaries you'll get.
The Holocaust was a tragic event in history. Approximately 6million lives were lost. During the first half of the 20 th century, the Naziparty, led by Adolf Hitler, encourag…ed prejudice against Jews andother "undesirables" such as gypsies, homosexuals, the mentallyill, or physically disabled; those not of the "Aryan" race. Jewish children soon could not go to schools with the other Germanchildren. Jewish businesses were forced to close, Jewish templeswere burned and vandalized. The Nazis also set up ghettos, where Jews (and some Gypsies) weresegregated from other people and were forced to live in the mosthorrible conditions. The Nazis developed "The Final Solution", a plan to get rid of allthe Jews. They decided the most efficient way of doing this was toset up camps to exterminate their existence so they would not passon their genes and disrupt the Nazis' quest for the perfect race.Though the Nazis did not achieve their goal, they managed to kill5-6 million Jews (and a further 5 million other victims) in cruel,sadistic, inhumane acts and murders.

When Helen Keller was a young child, she contracted a high fever that left her sightless and unable to hear. Being the parents of a non-seeing and non-hearing child was a hard…ship on two loving parents who did all they could but seemed to do it in the wrong way. Out of desperation, they hired a young educator, Anne Sullivan, to teach and train the young Helen. Much to the parent's dismay, Sullivan was a strict and firm disciplinarian with the young, spoiled Keller girl. Sullivan and Helen Keller moved into a house not far down the lane from the main Keller house. There they began to develop a trust and relationship of love and respect for each other. This soon turned into an atmosphere that was ripe for learning without the interference of the Keller parents. Once Helen Keller began to put meaning with the finger spelling that she was doing, she began to learn many words at a rapid rate. Her world began to open and she was able to complete her education and continue advanced training at the university.

This chapter is a brief summary of the history of Computers. It is supplemented by the two PBS documentaries video tapes "Inventing the Future" And "The Paperback Computer". T…he chapter highlights some of the advances to look for in the documentaries. In particular, when viewing the movies you should look for two things: The progression in hardware representation of a bit of data: 1.Vacuum Tubes (1950s) - one bit on the size of a thumb; 2.Transistors (1950s and 1960s) - one bit on the size of a fingernail; 3.Integrated Circuits (1960s and 70s) - thousands of bits on the size of a hand 4.Silicon computer chips (1970s and on) - millions of bits on the size of a finger nail. The progression of the ease of use of computers: 1.Almost impossible to use except by very patient geniuses (1950s); 2.Programmable by highly trained people only (1960s and 1970s); 3.Useable by just about anyone (1980s and on). to see how computers got smaller, cheaper, and easier to use. Simple Computers By definition, a computer is any device capable of performing mathematical equations or calculations. Therefore, many simple devices such as an abacus (which dates back to at least 300 BCE) or a slide rule (first made in England in the 1630s) are the forerunners of today's modern computers. The Calculating Clock The first machine that worked like a computer was a gear-powered German device dubbed the Calculating Clock. It was first created by Wilhelm Schickard in 1623, and it operated by pulling or pushing rods set inside a glass case. A similar device known as a Pascaline became popular in the 1640s. These two devices were the forerunners of a steam-powered "difference engine" that was a pet project of Charles Babbage in the 1820s. Harvard Mark-1 In 1944, the Harvard Mark-1 computer is completed. This computer is closer to a modern computer, but is really just a large calculator driven by a camshaft with no stored programs. This massive computer filled a large room and was a joint effort between Harvard University and IBM. ENIAC Another important computer dating from the 1940s is the ENIAC, which was built between 1943 and 1945. ENIA (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Calculator) was a project of the University of Pennsylvania, and spanned many rooms and used nearly 20,000 vacuum tubes. The Dawn of the Microprocessor A microprocessor is a chip that basically contains an entire computer (or at least a 1940's era computer) using a integrated circuit. The first microprocessor was made by Intel in 1971. With the advent of this technology, the home computer become a possibility. The First PC The first personal computer for home use was the Altair 8800, which contained an Intel 8080 microprocessor. However, this computer had to be assembled by the person who bought it.
