    Blaise Pascal was born at Clermont on June 19, 1623, and died in Paris on Aug. 19, 1662. His father, a local judge at Clermont, and himself of some scientific reputation, moved to Paris in 1631, for two main reasons, to prosecute his own scientific studies, and to carry on the education of his only son, who had already displayed exceptional ability. Pascal was kept at home in order to ensure his not being overworked. Surprisingly, Pascals family directed his education to foreign languages and did not teach him mathematics. Naturally, this excited the boy's curiosity, and one day, when he was twelve years old; he asked what geometry consisted of. His tutor told him that it was the science of ...

  • Hilairegermainedgar De Gas Was Born On July 19, 1834, At 8 Rue Saintgeorges In Paris His Father, Auguste, A Banker, Was Frenc - 495 words
    Hilaire-Germain-Edgar De Gas was born on July 19, 1834, at 8 rue Saint-George's in Paris. His father, Auguste, a banker, was French, and his mother, Clestine, an American from New Orleans. The family name "Degas" had been changed to "De Gas" by some family members in Naples and France in order to sound more aristocratic; the preposition indicated a name derived from land holdings. Degas went back to using the original spelling sometime after 1870, and that is how we spell his name today. He was destined for a law career, but instead entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, where he studies with Louis Lamothe. There he became a painter and sculptor. Degas was associated with the Impressionists, taki ...

  • In The Tale Of Two Cities By Charles Dickens Both London And Paris Appear To Be Poor - 607 words
    In The Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens both London and Paris appear to be poor cities. The main theme is Recalled to Life which is the resurrection or release of Alexandre Manette from the kingdom of death and his isolation of being in prison for nearly eighteen years. Paris appears to be more "under the heel" than London. In Paris the wealthy were separated from the poor and did not care about them at all. A wine cask was broken and the poor people stopped in the street to have a brief celebration while they were drinking up the wine. Gaspard takes some of the wine and writes on the side of the building "blood" which is foreshadowing the French Revolution. It was said that terror...bl ...

  • The United States At The Paris Peace Conference - 1,381 words
    The United States At The Paris Peace Conference The United States at the Paris Peace Conference The First World War had lasting effects on almost every aspect of our society. Empires and monarchies collapsed, democracy began to rise, capitalism was affected, and inflation resulted from the cost of war. It became apparent that an agreement must be reached which would clearly outline the steps necessary to repair the damages done by the war. Even more importantly, a method must be devised which would, in theory, prevent such a horrific war from occurring ever again. The Paris Peace Conference was held in the winter of 1919, predominantly at the infamous Palace of Versailles, and was intended t ...

    ... idea was not greeted with the reception he had expected, however, and many were opposed to the covenant as part of the treaty. Wilson found the same feeling in the United States, and received a letter signed by 1/3 of the senators, saying that they would not approve the treaty as it was. To this Wilson responded: When the treaty comes back will find the Covenant not only in it, but so many threads of the treaty tied to the Covenant that you cannot dissect the Covenant from the treaty without destroying the whole vital structure. While this occurred at home, back overseas a new situation had arisen. With Colonel House acting in Wilsons place, the American delegates had split on the issue ...

  • Versailles, Palace Of About 13 Miles 21 Kilometers Southwest Of Paris, In The City Of Versailles, Stands The Largest Palace I - 1,131 words
    VERSAILLES, PALACE OF. About 13 miles (21 kilometers) southwest of Paris, in the city of Versailles, stands the largest palace in France. It was built because of the consuming envy of King Louis XIV, and once completed it became the object of envy of every other monarch in Europe. The Winter Palace in St. Petersburg, Schnbrunn in Vienna, and Herrenchiemsee in Bavaria are only three of the royal palaces built in imitation of the Palace of Versailles. Versailles itself served as a royal residence for a little more than a century--from 1682 until 1789, when the French Revolution began. On Aug. 17, 1661, the French superintendent of finances, Nicolas Fouquet, presided over a large celebration in ...

  • 1776 Vs 1789 - 1,691 words
    1776 vs 1789 The American and French Revolutions both occurred in the eighteenth century; subverting the existing government and opening the way for capitalism and constitutionalism. Because of these similarities, the two revolutions are often assumed to be essentially eastern and western versions of each other. However, the two are fundamentally different in their reason, their rise, progress, termination, and in the events that followed, even to the present. The American Revolution was not primarily fought for independence. Independence was an almost accidental by-product of the Americans attempt to rebel against and remove unfair taxes levied on them by British Parliament. Through propaga ...
