Les deux appartiennent au mouvement des Anabaptistes qui remonte lpoque de la Rforme.

Ben McCann World History Honors 1st period Louis XIV Louis XIV was an absolute monarch. He inherited the French throne when he was only five. Because Louis XIV was so young, Cardinal Mazarin was the true ruler of France until his death when Louis took control. Louis weakened the power of the nobles by excluding them from his councils and increased the power of the intendants. He made sure that local officials communicated with him regularly. Louis was greatly helped by his finance minister, Jean Baptiste Colbert who believed in mercantilism. French companies were given government funds and tax benefits, so that manufacturing would expand. The French government encouraged people to migrate to ...

Genomics When one suggests that a behavior is determined genetically, then one horribly oversimplifies the situation, and negates the importance of culture and free will in determining how a person behaves. One behavior that has gained large-scale acceptance as having a partial genetic cause is that of alcoholism. This genetic cause I expressed in terms of risk factor. It has often been noted that the children of alcoholics are more at risk of becoming addicted to alcohol than are other children. in the last five or so years, technique arising from the Human Genome Project have made it possible to sequence human genes and actually try to pinpoint the locus of the genes associated with alcoho ...

... uggests that DZ twins, which are similar but not identical in terms of genotype, respond quite differently. Parents and their children are even more genetically different that non-identical siblings, so it seems that a child would have a significantly different beta-endorphin response from its parent. The whole basis for the conclusion that risk for alcoholism is genetic is that DZ twins are not as similar in their response as are MZ twins. This demonstrates that parental alcoholism does not necessarily translate into similar risk of alcoholism in the child. A parent and child are not identical in their genome. The second study suggests that the COMT gene, which is involved in dopamine m ...

... e the Milanese governor, Crdoba, sent his troops to Monteferrat in March 1628. Olivares did not publicly endorse this move but he probably gave private encouragement to Crdoba. In doing so Olivares found he had provoked a French war against Spain in Italy. Elliott states that the Mantuan war was the biggest blunder in Olivares foreign policy. It had major repercussions throughout Europe stirring up the old fears of Spanish aggression. Furthermore, having committed Spain to war with France over Mantua, he failed to keep the French Duke off the throne. Cordoba never managed to break the siege of Moteferrat, partly due to his tardiness; he did not begin the siege until five months aft ...
