  • Ukrainian Culture - 920 words
    Ukrainian Culture Ukrainian Culture The best way to begin to understand Ukrainian culture is to review early Ukrainian history. This will give us a good step from which to look at traditional Ukrainian culture. Unlike the Russian people, who descended from northern tribes descending from Scandinavia and the far north, Ukrainian history was influenced by southern civilizations such as Scythians and Greeks. Invasions by the Huns and the Khazars between the 3rd and 9th centuries mixed Ukrainian bloodlines with those from all over Asia. During the 10th century, Kievan Rus was established and the golden age of Ukrainian kings was born. During this period, many important events took place, notably ...

  • Ultimate Recreational Vehicle - 667 words
    Ultimate Recreational Vehicle The Ultimate Recreational Sport Michael Lackie For as long as I can remember, my family has always enjoyed recreational sports. In the summer we would go jet skiing, river rafting, off road motorcycle riding, and water skiing. Once winter came along, we switched to snowmobiling, snowboarding, and hunting. My father and his brother owned all the expensive toys, while my brothers, cousins and I owned the cheaper toys. While it was fun using our parents expensive toys, we had to be careful not to damage them. So for years we saved our money in the hopes of buying our own expensive toys, but we could only save enough for one; therefore, we needed to find one that wo ...

    Ultrasonic Radar for a Home PC System One of the fastest changing and most expensive fields, is that of technology. Our computers, printers, modems, and much more is being outdated faster than anything else in the world. Just as we buy a new computer that does what we want, the industry comes out with a new option on a smaller and better computer. There seems to be so much changing that unless we invest our life savings into technology, we are considered obsolete like our computers.

Mode 11 (called the half-step drive) uses one coil, then two coils, alternating between modes 7 and 9. This doubles the number of steps per revolution. If a stepper motor of twelve volts or less (indicated on the motor, along with maximum current, coil resistance and step angle) is used it is possible to run both the stepper and the Experimenter from the same power supply. It may be more economical to use a rechargeable power supply as an alternative to a small power supply. If the ranging board, Experimenter, and stepper are run off the same power supply, it is necessar ...

  • Ulysses - 778 words
    Ulysses An Idle King In "Ulysses," Tennyson presents Ulysses, the great Greek war hero and warrior of the Trojan War, serving, again, as king of Ithaca. Ulysses, having been home for three years, feels himself stagnating and wasting his life in the unwanted role of king. Longs to be again the man he has been. Ulysses desires a life of independence, physical adventure, and intellectual pursuit. Ulysses desires a life of independence. The island is dependent on him and the civilization "hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me."

    ... 0) Bibliography A Hero Among Men, A Man Among Heroes The name Ulysses instantly conjures up images of heroism and adventure. Even modern readers who are less versed in classical literature recognize the larger-than-life character, if not the specific details of this legend. It is with these associations in mind that one approaches the poetic monologue "Ulysses" by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Tennyson, hwoever, presents the reader with a man rather than a hero. The Ulysses of his imagination is restless rather than self-satisfied and irresponsible and selfish rather than altruistic. This Ulysses harbors unrepentant contempt for his home and mostly for the people who have cheered him on and anxi ...

    Ulysses By Tennyson Lord Alferd Tennyson presents to us in the poem "Ulysses" an old sailor, a warrior and a king who is in retrospection on his experiences of a lifetime of travel. Ulysses old age and strong will causes him to be restless and unable to be comfortable at home. He chooses a life of travel over his family because that is what he knows best.

  • Ulysses By Tennyson - 704 words
    Ulysses By Tennyson The poem I chose to write about is "Ulysses", by Alfred Lord Tennyson. It is a poem based on Homers Odyssey, which is the story of Odysseus (Ulysses) and his journeys. Odysseus was King of Ithaca and leader of the Greek army. The Greeks sailed into Troy to fight what turned out to be a lengthy battle. After ten years at war, Odysseus and the Greek army conquered Troy and set out on their voyage home. On their journey they encountered a series of adventures. I plan to discuss what the poem "Ulysses" is about, why it was written and what it means. "Ulysses" is a speech Odysseus gives to his sailors, rebelling against his life and conformity, after he reclaimed the throne in ...

  • Ulysses S Grant - 1,488 words
    Ulysses S. Grant Although Ulysses S. Grant's contemporaries placed him in the highest position of great Americans along with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, the twentieth century has seen him fade. His presidency has been almost universally condemned, and he is consistently ranked second to rock bottom Warren G. Harding in polls of historians to rate the presidents. Although his military reputation has declined as well, it nevertheless continues to win him a steady following. Even his most faithful admirers, however, tend to end their studies conveniently at Appomattox, and one senses a wide regret that Grant's public career extended beyond the Civil War. Taking note of this trend, Jo ...

In the final battle of the Civil War, Grant found himself up against Robert E. Lee. Lee was the only general left in the south who had a chance of beating Grant and the North. With troops outnumbering Lee's two to one, Grant sought out to destroy the Southern army. Grant's strategy was simply to send all his men into battle at once, never letting them rest until victory prevailed. Lee saw that Grant wouldn't back down, so he surrendered in order to save lives of the all ready bloodthirsty war(Krick 26). Grant went to Washington to disband the ...

    Unchained Heritage - Creative Essay The Elder sat alone on a slab of granite outside a carelessly- erected tent on a Native reserve near Beardmore in northern Ontario, just east of Lake Nipigon. The previous night's rain was already drying off the ground, leaving only scattered mud patches in it's wake. Soon the early summer sun would turn these into crusty bits of dirt, only to be muddied the next rainfall. The roar of a twin-engine charter from Dryden filled the air. A squirrel, apparently frightened by the noise, scampered hurriedly past the Elder, pausing only momentarily to sniff the air before taking refuge up a nearby tree. About a minute later, the plane was completely out of sight, ...

How Twain felt toward slaves is more ambiguous. In his autobiography Twain wrote of "Uncle Dan'l", the ma ...
