The Boer War
The Boer War
The Boer War The Boer War of 1899 was a dirty little conflict. It started a result of cultural resentment between the Boers (Dutch settlers) and immigrating British. At first, the war was fought with the honor typically associated with the British, but, in the end, it turned nasty. South Africa's Cape of Good Hope was colonized in the 17th century by Dutch Boers (farmers). The Boers used African slaves on their farms. Britain occupied the Cape during the Napoleonic wars and took complete contro

C. S. Lewis C. S. Lewis, a well-known author and apologist, is best known by people of all ages for his seven volume series entitled The Chronicles of Narnia. As Lewis wrote about the land of Narnia, an imaginary world visited by children of this world, he had two obvious purposes: to entertain the readers and to suggest analogies of the Christian faith. Although some feel that his stories are violent, Lewis is successful at using fiction to open peoples’ hearts to accepting Christ as their Savi

Proving this, Renshon believes that the presidents psychology explains everything. By examining the range of choices available to the president as well as those he selects, both within and across circumstances, one can begin to discern the underly

Motivation MOTIVATING EMPLOYEES I believe that every person is motivated about something; the challenge is to find out how to create a work environment that enables people to express that motivation at work. So how do you motivate employees? The answer to this question seems like is would be simple but it is actually quite complex. In order for employees to become and remain self-motivated, they need to have a reason. In fact, the word motivation means having a motive or reason. In my research I

“Transcendentalism: a philosophy emphasizing the intuitive and spiritual over the empirical”(Webster’s dictionary, 1993) The impact the transcendental movement had on American literature cannot be underestimated. “Reawakening an interest in the great problems of human nature and destiny,” authors such as Emerson, Alcott and Brownson, for example, forced the transcendental movement into the path of Henry David Thoreau.

Ernest Hemingway once gave some advice to his fellow writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. If something in life hurts you, he said, you should use it in your writing. In A Farewell to Arms Hemingway followed his own advice. The painful experiences of his own life that, consciously and unconsciously, he placed in this novel help make it a major artistic achievement. The first of these experiences was a physical hurt that occurred on July 8, 1918. On this date, two weeks shy of his nineteenth birthday, H

Serial killers have been active since the 15th century, yet we are still mesmerized by them. They have and will continue to shock and sicken us to the core of our being, yet they are treated as legends. We, the public, have a very perverse relationship with them and their evil deeds. Books and movies made regarding their atrocities make millions, yet they are still punished and some are put to death. Does this mean that there is a dark side to us all and we are using the active serial killers a

Many peoples have contributed to the development of the United States of America, a vast nation that arose from a scattering of British colonial outposts in the New World. The first humans to inhabit the North American continent were migrants from northeast Asia who established settlements in North America as early as 8000 BC and possibly much earlier (see NORTH AMERICAN ARCHAEOLOGY). By about AD 1500 the native peoples of the areas north of the Rio Grande had developed a variety of different c
