    ... made a timed distance run with a stopwatch and compass, and dropped bombs on an unseen target. This became known as dead reckoning bombing or "DR" runs. Eareckson also began using time-delayed fuses on his bombs that prevented the bombs from exploding under the low flying aircraft that had just dropped its ordnance (Garfield 106). His experiences in Alaska were to contribute significantly to the air war in the Pacific. Having flown in the worst weather imaginable, Col. Eareckson was more than capable of handling a few enemy fighters. Another unique aspect of the war in Alaska was the Lend -Lease program.

Although many students have the time to watch the television, many of them dont. The televisions utter no words of ma ...

  • Divide Comedy By Dante - 1,378 words
    Divide Comedy By Dante A significant idea contained within Dante's The Divine Comedy is the Augustinian concept of ordered and disordered love. Each realm of the afterlife symbolizes the type of love the inhabitants exercised while they were living on earth. For example, the Inferno represents disordered love, since the souls in Hell exhibited little love for mankind and little acknowledgement of God. Because the kind of love Hell symbolizes is the worst type that anyone could possess, it is located nearest to the center of the earth, farthest away from God. On the other hand, Paradise, which is situated closest to God, represents ordered love. This area is reserved for those who treated the ...

  • Edward Devere Earl Of Oxford - 345 words
    Edward Devere - Earl Of Oxford Edward DeVere - Earl of Oxford 1. Was DeVere an aristocrat or a writer? Writing was not a "proper" this for a gentleman/ aristocrat to do. No courtiers were allowed to write poetry. Because of this rule supposedly many men decided upon a pen name however, running against this rule most aristocrats did publish work throwing out oxfords need for a pen name. Therefore if DeVere did write the famous Shakespearean works the author would be known as DeVere rather than Shakespeare. 2. When did DeVere die?
