World War II
World War II In the early morning hours of September 1, 1939, the German armies marched into Poland. On September 3 the British and French surprised Hitler by declaring war on Germany, but they had no plans for rendering active assistance to the Poles. The Battle of Britain In the summer of 1940, Hitler dominated Europe from the North Cape to the Pyrenees. His one remaining active enemy—Britain, under a new prime minister, Winston Churchill—vowed to continue fighting. Whether it could was quest

Dangerous Driving and The Effects on Youth In today's society, dangerous driving is criminal and is also considered to be deviant. There are different levels of dangerous driving, all of which have different meaning to different people, some are considered part of the social norm and others are considered to be deviant. Speeding for example is considered to be a norm of society. Everyone speeds and this is not considered a problem which needs societies immediate attention, however there is a lin
Stowaways
Stowaways
Stowaways Stowaways have been a problem to shipowners for about as long as there have been ships in the sea. In the early days of sailing ships and looser maritime legislation, this was a relatively minor problem. This probably had to due with the fact that the ships were smaller in comparison to today's standards, and were comparatively heavily crewed. Thus the chances for a stowaway to get on board and go undiscovered for any length of time were fairly small. Also in that age, the concept of

There comes a time is each person's life when they reach the point where they are no longer children, but adults. The transition from a child into a young adult is often referred to as the coming of age, or growing up. The time when this transition occurs is different in everyone, since everyone is an individual and no two people are alike. Certain children reach this stage through a tragic, painful event which affects them to such extent that they are completely changed. Other children reach

William Wordsworth is widely considered one of the most influential English romantic poets. In the preface of his book, Lyrical Ballads, published in 1798, Wordsworth declared that poetry should contain language really used by men. This idea, and many of his others, challenged the old eighteenth-cuntury idea of formal poetry and, therefore, he changed the course of modern poetry (Wordsworth, William DISCovering). Wordsworth was born in Cockermouth, England, to John, a prominent aristocrat, and

Le Hockey de Glace Le hockey sur glace a commencé dans la ville de Windsor en Nouvelle Écosse. Le hockey de glace ce n’est pas un jeu qui est inventé ou un jeu qui a commencé dans une année ou un jour particulier. Le jeu a commencé autour des années 1800 à la premiere université du Canada. Cette université est le Kings College School. Les garçons au Kings College School ont adapté le jeu Irlandais de Hurley et jouent ça avec la glace. Ils ont donné au nouveau jeu le nom de Ice Hurley.

It's no doubt that railroads are an important part of distribution. One could argue many reasons for this with the main reasons including size of railroads, the low impact on the environment and cost and ease of operation. With railroads in Canada such as CN Rail with approximately 15 000 route miles of main track including 750 in the States. And employees exceeding 21 000 that service all five of Canada's major ports: Halifax, Montreal, Thunder Bay, Prince Rupert, and Vancouver and strategic c

Middle East And Canada Introduction In December 1985, the Canadian press reported the death by suicide of hundreds of field mice in the Middle East. In an apparently instinctive reaction to a problem of over-population, the mice wilfully plunged to their doom off the cliffs of the Golan Heights. This bizarre story was the subject not only of straight news coverage in the Canadian press, but also of an editorial in the Globe and Mail on December 20. On November 1, 1985, the Globe and Mail also ra

Ira Aldridge Ira Frederick Aldridge was born on July 24, 1807 in New York. However, his birthplace remained questionable until 40 or so years ago. It has also been listed as Senegal(Africa), and Maryland. However conclusive evidence was found in the 1950s that he was born in New York. Included in this evidence are his British Naturalization papers and Death Certificate. His father was Reverend Daniel Adlridge , a straw vendor and preacher in Old Zion . His mother was Lurranah.

Greenhouse Effect When one starts a car or burns wood, the last thought on their mind is the consequences to these actions. Unfortunately, the daily dangers to earth are not widely know. Due to the constant change of society, this planet must cope with various problems. One of the most important ecological structures is the ozone layer. The same shield that protects us from the sun’s deadly radiation, can also act as a blanket engulfing us in heat. This situation is know as the greenhouse effect

Facing Hitler Alone
Facing Hitler Alone The legacy of Winston Churchill has survived into the 21st century with its almost mythical qualities well intact. History remembers him, without overstating, as the eloquently spoken, sharp-witted British Prime Minister who, through determination, perseverance, and principle, took his country's burden upon his shoulders and turned what could have been the British Empire's final hour into, as Churchill emphatically declared, their finest hour. While Churchill's legendary stat

Ozone
Ozone
Ozone Ozone Ozone (O3) is a molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms, similar to the oxygen we breathe (O2), however oxygen consists of only two oxygen atoms. In the stratosphere, a region high up in the upper atmosphere, light rays are responsible for the breaking down of oxygen (O2), breathable oxygen into its two separate oxygen atoms. Lone oxygen atoms are markedly reactive. When a lone oxygen atom comes into contact with a breathable oxygen molecule (O2) it combines to form ozone (O3). The
