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, encouraged prejudice against Jews andother "undesirables" such as gypsies, homosexuals, the mentallyill, or physically disabled; thos…e 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.

Being a Jew has two meanings . One can be born to a Jewish mother, and that makes you a Jew. . Anyone who sincerely decides to practice the Torah law even ifthey were not born Jewish, can convert. Answer 2Religious Jews live by the Torah, by obeying its commandsand beliefs. Some examples of th…e commands: Belief in God Putting on Tefillin (phylacteries) in the morning The sukkah-booth during Sukkot Avoiding leavened products in Passover Keeping kosher Not eating on Yom Kippur Not working on the Shabbat Paying workers on time Marital rights for one's wife The Ten Commandments Helping someone who is in danger Counting the days of the Omer Returning lost objects when feasible Wearing the tzitzith-garment Affixing a mezuzah to the door Learning Torah Marrying and having children Educating one's children in Judaism Giving tzedakah (charity) Honoring one's parents And many more. The laws have various reasons. Some (such as the Passover) serve toreenact or remember events of our history. Some (such as saying the Shema-prayer) serve to reiterate ourbelief in God. Some of the laws (such as those of ritual purity and kosher food)serve to sanctify us. Some (such as the laws of torts) serve to maintain an orderly andjust society. Some (such as the law against breaking a vow) serve to prevent badcharacter traits. Some (such as the command to offer help) serve to engender goodcharacter traits. And all of the commands serve to subjugate us to God's will(especially those commands for which no explanation is easilyapparent). Note that the Torah "as is" isn't exactly what Judaism observes.Rather, It's the Torah together with the details provided in theTalmud, which is the Oral Law that was handed down together withthe laws of Moses. Otherwise, the verses of the Torah often lackenough detail to be fulfilled as is. ( Full Answer )

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". The chapter highlights some of the advances to look for in the documentaries. In particular, when viewing the movies you shoul…d 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.

ANSWER ONE: . The sun warms the earth and the atmosphere holds in the heat tokeep the earth warm. This is called the greenhouse effect. . During the past 250 years we have been burning more and morefossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas). This is releasing extracarbon dioxide into the atmosph…ere. . We have also been cutting down many of the rainforests andother forests that absorb carbon dioxide. . This means that extra carbon dioxide (and other greenhousegases, like methane) are continually being added to theatmosphere. . These extra greenhouse gases are holding back more and more ofthe sun's heat in the atmosphere and causing global warming - thewarming all over the earth. And this is causing climate change. ANSWER TWO: The air contains different kinds of gases, and there are now moreof some kinds of gas than there used to be a hundred years ago,because of all the burning that people have been doing. The air nowkeeps in warmth better than it used to, like a big blanket made ofgas. This is making the world warmer. That is called globalwarming. ANSWER THREE: . Man burns fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) and releasesextra carbon dioxide (CO2) that has been buried underground for 300million years. . This CO2 starts building up in the atmosphere. . Man also destroys the great forests of the world that used toremove this carbon dioxide. . The CO2 (and other greenhouse gases) capture heat rising fromthe surface of the earth. The extra gas holds more heat. . This extra heat is global warming. ANSWER FOUR: Greenhouse gasses are the main source of GlobalWarming. The most important greenhouse gasses are water vapor,carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. The global warming science has primarily been focused on carbondioxide because of all the greenhouse gasses mentioned above, thatis the largest anthropogenic (man-made) greenhouse gas andthus, one which in theory we can do something about. Scientists know that there is a direct correlation between theamount of carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere and the globaltemperature. While earth also emits natural carbon dioxide (the largest part infact; 97% of all emissions), the earth also removes it from theatmosphere in a process called the Carbon Cycle. In this process,the earth in fact removes more carbon dioxide from the atmospherethen it emits. This way, the earth has always been able to maintainsome sort of natural balance of carbon dioxide and temperature overlong periods of time. The problem starts when we humans burn primarily fossil fuels (likecoal, natural gas and oil) as a result of which we add additionalcarbon dioxide to the atmosphere. But we humans only add carbondioxide, we do not remove any like nature does via the CarbonCycle. Since we do not remove any of our man-made carbon dioxideemissions, the amount of total carbon dioxide in the atmosphere(both natural as man-made) increases, even when our contribution ofemissions is relatively tiny (3%) when compared with naturalemissions (97%). The current amount of carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere isat its highest level in 15 to 20 million years, at about 390 partsper million (ppm). In earth's history, an increase of 100ppmusually took between 5,000 and 20,000 years. The recent increase of100ppm has taken place over just 120 years, coinciding with the Industrial Revolution when humans started to burn fossilfuels (and thus adding more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere) on aever increasing pace. As a result of recent carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere,global temperature has increased. ( Full Answer )

The genocide was planned by members of the core political eliteknown as the akazu, many of whom occupied positions at top levelsof the national government. Perpetrators came from the ranks of theRwandan army, the National Police (gendarmerie), government-backedmilitias including the Interahamwe and …Impuzamugambi, and the Hutucivilian population. The genocide took place in the context of the Rwandan Civil War, anongoing conflict beginning in 1990 between the Hutu-led governmentand the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF), which was largely composedof Tutsi refugees whose families had fled to Uganda followingearlier waves of Hutu violence against the Tutsi.

First off, I'm not sure this is what you're looking for seeing as you listed under literature, but I'm going to summarize the battle: It's the second Punic War between the city states of Carthage (north africa) and Rome (central italy). A brilliant new Carthagenian General named Hannibal Barca (comm…only Hannibal) has boldly trekked his army through Spain, then the Pyrenees, then south France, then crossing the Alps, with African elephants no less, in an incredibly bold plan to attack Rome by surprise. After various battles, the Romans are completely unable to score a major victory against Hannibal, who marches freely up and down the east coast of Italy with his army. At a point, the Romans have some success attempting to starve Hannibal's invasion force, but this was taking to long, and the people demanded swift action, so the Romans gambled everything on sending an enormous army to face off with Hannibal once and for all. The two armies met near Cannae. The Roman army was led by two generals, who switched off command each day. That day, an aggressive general named Varro was in command. Before the battle he deepened the Roman fighting formation, sacrificing maneuvrability for smashing power, which would prove a fatal mistake. Hannibal lined up in a concave formation, bowed in the center, his infantry a combination of gauls, carthagenians, and others, with his Numibian Cavalry on each wing. His chosen formation seemed to invite an all out frontal attacked, and Varro obliged. To start the battle, Hannibal's superior Numibian cavalry crushed the Roman horsemen (this would repeatedly, in the future, be a problem for Rome) and began to chase off stragglers while awaiting Hannibal's orders. While this happened, the Roman Centuries attacked, and Hannibal's men began to lose ground. Then, just as victory seemed sure for the Romans, Hannibal ordered his best infantry, the Libyan Pikes, into action, crashing down on either side of the Roman's flanks. In another moment, Hannibal's Numibian cavalry returning from running down the routing enemy and charged in the Roman's rear. The Romans were now completely surrounded, and packed in so tight they could not use their weapons. Had there been any oreder, they could have easily organized at a point and by sheer numbers broke free, but that order never came amidst the confusion. Aftermath: This was a crushing defeat for Rome, who lost up to 86,000 of a force of 90,000 men and horses, while Hannibal lost a (relatively) mere 8,000 out of his army of 50,000 (His elephants had all died in earlier battles and while crossing the Alps). This is especially noteworthy because almost an entire army was completely annhilated in mere hours. The next time this men men would die in such a short period of time came again four times:The first battle of the Somme, D-Day, and at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. After the battle, Hannibal continued his march up and down the Italian coast, to strong to be defeated, to weak to attack Rome. This continued until Scipio Africanus launched a Roman attack on Carthage to draw Hannibal out of Italy to defend his city. This worked, and Hannibal was finally defeated, ironically on his home soil at the battle of Zama. As the other two, the second Punic War was a decisive win for Rome, and helped established their dominance of Mediterranean sea trade for the next half millenium. ( Full Answer )

To truly understand about the horror of the concentration camps, it is necessary to know about the Holocaust and the events leading up to it. Since the Holocaust is a long and detailed event, that I could not cover in one page, I will provide a basic background. The Holocaust was a tragic event in h…istory. Over 11 million lives were lost because of cruel racial prejudice. During world war two, the Nazi party, led by Adolf Hitler, encouraged prejudice against Jews and other "undesirables", or those not of the "Aryan" race. The Nazis developed "The Final Solution", a plan to get rid of all the Jews. They decided the most efficient way of doing this was to set up camps to exterminate them so they would not pass on their genes and disrupt the Nazis' quest for the perfect race. The Nazis also set up ghettos, where Jews would live in the most horrible conditions. Jewish children soon could not go to schools with the other German children. Jewish businesses were forced to close, Jewish temples were burned and vandalized. Though the Nazis did not achieve their goal, they managed to kill millions of Jews and others in a display of cruel, sadistic, inhumane acts. ( Full Answer )

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 p…osition 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. ( Full Answer )

Vietnam was a struggle which, in all honesty, the United States should never have been involved in. North Vietnam was battling for ownership of South Vietnam, so that they would be a unified communist nation. To prevent the domino effect and the further spread of communism, the U.S. held on to the T…ruman Doctrine and stood behind the South Vietnamese leader, Diem. Kennedy and Diem were both killed in 1963 and 1964. Johnson took control of the situation by increasing the amount of money and manpower put into Vietnam. Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, giving the president full military power. After Johnson dramatically escalated the amount of soldiers in Vietnam, The North Vietnamese mounted a surprise attack during the Vietnamese new year, and this strike was called the Tet Offensive. It made America more aware of what they were up against, that the communists were capable of fierce, guerrilla warfare, unlike anything Americans had ever fought before. Images of the terror and disarray reached back home, and the U.S. began to wonder how effective their involvement in Vietnam really was. As we got further and further into the Vietnam War, few lives were untouched by grief, anger and fear. The Vietnamese suffered the worst hardship; children lay dead in the street, villages remained nothing but charred ashes, and bombs destroyed thousands of innocent civilians. Soldiers were scarred emotionally as well as physically, as The paranoia and fear of death never left them. The My Lai Massacre occurred in 1968, when the village of My Lai was completely destroyed, although it did not contain a single enemy troop. Over a hundred villagers were slaughtered. It became clearer to Americans how soldiers were losing control, and how there was no easy way to win this war. The draft took more and more people in as the years went on, and in1968 it peaked to over 500,000 soldiers involved in Vietnam. The government was so desperate for troops that even men with poor eyesight fought, and no education was needed. The people began to strike out and a revolution took place to restore peace to the nation. Some key ways to get the movement attention included student activism and anti-war messages present in songs and literature.
