    Analysis of Kurdish Geopolitics Analysis of Kurdish Geopolitics Past and Present Who are the Kurds? Most of us have heard about them but dont know who they are. Are they a race, a religion, a country? As we see from the following example, even Europeans who are much closer to the Kurds still do not have a complete understanding of the Kurds or the middle east in general: In the West, the left and liberal minded people in general, especially in the Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon countries, have usually supported or at least expressed some sympathy with the struggles against both European colonialism and U.S. policies in Vietnam. But as soon as the problem shifted to Biafra, Southern Sudan, Kurd ...

  • Astrology - 1,683 words

  • Automobile Industry - 1,462 words
    Automobile Industry Industry Analysis The automobile industry began with Henry Fords production of the Model T in the early 1900s.

By 1908, there were only 200; and in 1917 only 23 remained. This vast reduction was due to large amounts of consolidation within the industry.

  • English - 1,044 words
    English Review of Shakespear's "The Tempest" Why is it that people fawn Shakespeare and have unreasonably high reguard for his works, including The Tempest, and label them as"immortal classics"? Indeed Shakespeares works had great significance in the evolution of English literature, but these works, including The Tempest are mostly devoid of significance and literary value in the present day. One can expect to gain little educational benefit of the english language or hightened apreciation for fine literature from the reading of Shakespeares titles for reasons enumerate. First of all, the colorful and sophisticated metephoric vernacular style of the language utilized is archaic; even the spe ...

    Ford Motor Company HISTORY Henry Ford was an engineer from Detroit, Michigan who had an idea. By 1902, Ford had attempted several times to produce a gas powered vehicle, but with little capital, he realized that his attempts were futile. Ford approached a man by the name of Alexander T.

  • Hercules: His 12 Quests - 1,859 words
    Hercules: His 12 Quests Hercules: His 12 Quests Like Perseus, Hercules was required to perform the miracu-lous. But instead of having to bring only one mission to a successful close, Hercules was ordered to complete twelve great tasks, which are often referred to in literature as "the labors of Hercules." This is how the challenge came about. Hercules was the son of Jupiter and Alcmene, daughter of the king of Mycenae. When Hercules was born, Juno in a jealous anger sent two serpents to destroy him in his cradle. But Hercules, even then showing the strength for which he later became famous, strangled them. Juno's hatred, however, was not easily appeased. She waited until Hercules reached man ...

  • La Fiesta Brava - 1,741 words
    La Fiesta Brava by 1 La Fiesta Brava Bullfighting is a tradition, art and athletic sport combined in one. Bullfighting originated in the classical world. The first bullfights supposedly took place in Knossos, Greece, "a contest of some sort is depicted in a wall painting unearthed... dating from about 2000 BC. It shows male and female acrobats confronting a bull, grabbing its horns as it charges, and vaulting over its back." (Encarta) Bullfights stayed popular after the Greek era had declined, in Rome. The spectacle of bullfighting during this time period was scarcely an art form but pure sport. It was not until the Moors of North Africa conquered the Visigoths of Europe in 711 AD that bullf ...

  • Looking Out The Window - 1,565 words
    Looking Out The Window Looking out the window, a sign on the side of the road reads, speed limit 25. I think it should be much higher, but I suppose residents of the road want to get out of their driveways without being smashed by a speeding car. I look down at the dashboard, which is covered with beer cans (theres no bottles because they always end up finding their way out the window and onto signs and other objects), various coins, and assortments of waste products. Directing my gaze away from the hideous sight of the trash, my eyes wander away and focus in on my speedometer. The pretty little numbers that encircle it go from 0 to 100. As my eyes wander, so does my mind. I think to myself, ...

  • Midsummer Nights Dream - 1,854 words
    Midsummer Night's Dream A Midsummer Night's Dream character, Demetrius is very difficult to identify except by his relation to the one he loves, or, more particularly, to the one who loves him. Helena's ridiculous chasing after him and his irritation with her are the primary marks of his character. While in this uncharmed state, he even begins to threaten Helena with bodily harm, coming off as not quite the gracious courtly lover he truly means to be. It's simple to discover his unchivalrous character by how easily his eye was distracted from Helena by Hermia in the beginning. He could be a gentle, loving man if he truly desired, but he takes satisfaction being put in his place by others. In ...

  • Orion - 736 words
    Orion Orion Down fell the red skin of the lion Into the river at his feet. His mighty club no longer beat The forehead of the bull; but he Reeled as of yore beside the sea, When blinded by Oenopion He sought the blacksmith at his forge, And climbing up the narrow gorge, Fixed his blank eyes upon the sun. ~The Occultation of Orion by Mr. Longfellow~ This poem was written about the Greek myth of Orion. The story says that Orion, the son of Neptune, was a handsome giant and a mighty hunter. His father gave him the power of wading through the depths of the sea, or, as others would say, walking on its surface. Orion loved Merope, the daughter of Oenopion, king of Chios, and sought her in marriage ...

The great pyramids include the two huge pyramids at Dahshur, seventeen miles south of Giza, which are usually attributed to Khufu's father Sneferu. Just as the position of the three Giza pyramids reflects that of the three stars of Orion's Belt, so the Bent and Red Pyramids of Dahshur correspond to Aldebaran and Epsilon Tauri respectively, with the Nile representing the Milky Way. The Bent Pyramids is so called because its lower part has a steeper slope than its upper part. This symbolizes duality, as do the two entrances, which lead to two separate sets of chambers (West).

Mass More than half of all stars are BINARY STARS--two or more stars that orbit one another. About 100 orbits have been measured accurately. These measurements provide perhaps the most important characteristic of a star: its mass. From Newton's Laws of gravitation and motion, it is known that two highly massive stars must orbit (one around the other) faster than two stars of lesser mass at the same distance apart; thus the masses can be calculated from the orbit size and the period of the orbit.

  • Twelfth Night - 1,163 words
    Twelfth Night Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare is a comedy where commoners and royalty speak together frequently, in both prose and blank verse. The usage is not always clear to the modern reader but is easily understood with sufficient knowledge of the literary styles of the period in which Shakespeare lived. This shift from one form of speech to the other gives many things to the audience, allowing them to better perceive and understand the situation and characters that Shakespeare is portraying. The effect of the change is easily felt by the Elizabethan viewers, and can be explained to the modern reader, such that the impact it has on the atmosphere of the play is made adequately appa ...

  • Venezuela - 1,089 words
    Venezuela As early as 1522 Spanish invaders reported that the Carib tribes in Venezuela used a black, gooey substance for many purposes. The viscous material was crude oil. It was not until the 1950s, however, that oil production began in Venezuela. Oil accounts for a quarter of the nation's gross domestic product and three-quarters of export earnings, and Venezuela is South America's leading producer and one of the few non-Arab members of OPEC. There are also substantial coal reserves, and exploitation of the recently discovered Guasare Basin field is expected to add 10 million tons to annual production. The political instability of the early 1990s shook foreign investor confidence, but Ven ...
