English portfolio

In approximately 50 peasant townships, the governments were indeed replaced by peasant committees that in some places were called `republics'. In many townships, people established native-language teaching, closed the pub, and boycotted the tsarist officials, refused to pay taxes or provide the Russian army with recruits. To suppress the revolution in the Baltics, the government used an army consisting of 19 000 soldiers. Special punitive troops, aided and abetted by the Baltic German landlords, shot over 300 hundred people in 1906; without trial or inquest. The court martial additionally condemned about 300 persons to death. About 600 received corporal punishment; hundreds were imprisoned and sent to Siberia. More than a half of all those executed in the Russian Empire, were inhabitants of Estonia and Latvia. Fearing the repressions, a great part of Estonian p...

Fridrick douglass

Douglass believed that the attack on federal property would enrage the American public. Douglass would later share a stage in Harpers Ferry with Andrew Hunter, the prosecutor who successfully convicted Brown. Douglass conferred with President Abraham Lincoln in 1863 on the treatment of black soldiers, and with President Andrew Johnson on the subject of black suffrage. His early collaborators were the white abolitionists William Lloyd Garrison and Wendell Phillips. In the early 1850's, however, Douglass split with the Garrisonians over the issue of the United States Constitution. Douglass had five children; two of them, Charles and Rossetta, helped produce his newspapers. Douglass was an ordained minister of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Autobiography D...

Hemingway A Farewell to Arms (overview)

The drivers continue in the other trucks until they get stuck again. They send off the young girls and continue on foot toward Udine. As they march, one of the drivers is shot dead by the easily frightened rear guard of the Italian army. Another driver marches off to surrender himself, while Henry and the remaining driver seek refuge at a farmhouse. When they rejoin the retreat the following day, chaos has broken out: soldiers , angered by the Italian defeat, pull commanding officers from the melee and execute them on sight. The battle police seize Henry, who, at a crucial moment, breaks away and dives into the river. After swimming a safe distance downstream, Henry boards a train bound for Milan. He hides beneath a tarp that covers stockpiled artillery, thinking that his obligations to the war effort are over and dreaming of his return to Catherine. Henry...

Hemingway A Farewell to Arms (themes, motifs, symbols)

The majority of the characters remain ambivalent about the war, resentful of the terrible destruction it causes, doubtful of the glory it supposedly brings. The novel offers masterful descriptions of the conflict's senseless brutality and violent chaos: the scene of the Italian army's retreat remains one of the most profound evocations of war in American literature. As the neat columns of men begin to crumble, so too do the soldiers ' nerves, minds, and capacity for rational thought and moral judgment. Henry's shooting of the engineer for refusing to help free the car from the mud shocks the reader for two reasons: first, the violent outburst seems at odds with Henry's coolly detached character; second, the incident occurs in a setting that robs it of its moral import --the complicity of Henry's fellow soldiers legitimizes the killing. The murder of the engineer seems jus...

The Saxons & Vikings

Free peasants began to lose their freedom. Many fell into bondage. Lost their land. In return for the land had to work on sb's land. Many nobles seized land by force. Sheriffs became king's officials. Moots lost their importance. This was the beginning of feudal relations. The man's position in the society depended on how much land he had. The root of power was land. It was the beginning of a class system, made up of king, lords, soldiers & workers on the land. By 600 Saxon settlements had gradually formed 7 kingdoms (Essex, Sussex, Wessex, Kent, Mercia, East Anglia, Northumbria). They were constant struggle against one another for predominance. From time to time some stronger state seized the land of the neighbouring kingdoms & made them pay tribute or even ruled directly. The number of kingdoms & their boundaries were always changing. The greatest & most important kingd...

Bridges presentation

These took the form of accidents: the Ashtabula, Ohio, bridge disaster of 1876 in the USA, and the Tay Bridge disaster in Scotland (UK) in 1879. Forewarnings had occurred in Europe as early as 1847, when one of Robert Stephenson's composite cast and wrought-iron girder bridges over the River Dee on the Chester & Holyhead Railway collapsed. Three years later, 478 French soldiers were pitched into the Maine at Angers when one of the anchoring cables of a suspension bridge embedded in concrete tore loose during a storm, mainly owing to resonance oscillation and by the oxidation of the iron wires. The Dee Bridge disaster spurred the development of malleable wrought-iron girders, thought to be of safer construction. Collapse of the Basse-Chaine Bridge resulted in a twenty-year moratorium on cable- suspension bridge cons...

Valentine's day

On that day people should were pink and red clothes. In different countries there are different traditions on Valentine's Day. History There are many versions of the history of Valentine's Day. One version is that there was a priest named Valentine who served during third century Rome. There was an Emperor at that time by the name of Claudius II. Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those that were married. With this thought in mind he outlawed marriage for young men in hopes of building a stronger military base. Supposedly, Valentine decided this decree just wasn't fair and chose to marry young couples secretly. When Emperor Claudius II found out about Valentine's actions he had him put to death. Another legend has it that Valentine was an imprisoned man who fell in love with his jailor's daughter. Before he...

The Moon Is Down

At first, things go well. The locals are stunned and confused, and the invaders busily plan and carry out expansion of coal production. Soon enough, a slow, burning anger replaces the people's fear and a ragged resistance movement forms. Random acts of sabotage occur against soldiers and the coal mine. The invaders, under orders from above, impose repressive measures to keep the production going. Their commander follows his order knowing that, in fact, there is little hope of stopping the sabotage for more than a few days at a time. The conquerors say of themselves and their futile efforts to defeat the undefeated motivation of the townspeople, "The flies have conquered the flypaper!" Soon, all semblance of harmony i...

The Middle Ages

Richard II spent the night in hiding in fear of his life. On June 15th, he met the rebels again at Smithfield outside of the city's walls. It is said that this was the idea of the Lord Mayor who wanted to get the rebels out of the city. Medieval London was mostly wooden. Any attempt to put down the rebels in the city could have ended in a fire or the rebels would have found it easy to vanish into the city once they knew that soldiers were after them. At this meeting, the Lord Mayor killed Wat Tyle who was one of the leaders of peasents. The death of Tyler and another promise by Richard to give the peasants what they asked for, was enough to send them home. By the summer of 1381, the revolt was over. Richard did not keep any of his promises claiming that they were made under threat and were therefore not valid in law. Leaders from both Kent and Essex were hanged. The...

Valsustusajastu

These main ideas came from England but they also reached to Europa countries,but through France.Clergymen were against these ideas and they tried to stop the spread of new ideas,but they were not sucessful.Baccaria was against unjust punishments and such of that manner. This idea related to the Declaration as the framers wrote of how the king protected his soldiers from punishments of crimes, while the king waged destruction on the people of the thirteen colonies as punishment for their rebellions. The constitution replicates Baccaria's idea in its text about the judicial system. People are granted trials of all crimes by jury. With fair trials, punishments would be just. The Age of Enlightenment describes a period in Europe and the American colonies during the 18th century, in which it was believed that...

National Symbols of New Zealand

The Kiwi as a symbol first appeared in the late 19th century in New Zealand regimental badges. It was later featured in the badges of the South Canterbury Battalion in 1886 and the Hastings Rifle Volunteers in 1887. Soon after, kiwis appeared in many military badges. During the First World War, the giant kiwi was carved on the chalk hill above Sling Camp in England. During the war, the name "Kiwi" for New Zealand soldiers came into general use. The Kiwi bird has since become the well-known national symbol for New Zealand. All New Zealanders overseas (and at home) are still called "Kiwis". The Kiwi is still closely associated with the Armed Forces of NZ. The New Zealand dollar is often referred to as the "Kiwi", and the kiwi fruit is known as a "Kiwi" in some countries. Kiwis are prominent in the coat of arms, crests and badges of many New Zealand cities, c...
