Known to be one of the greatest explorers of all time, Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa, Italy in 1451. Being the eldest son of Domenico Colombo and Susanna Fontanarossa, Columbus had two younger brothers, Bartholomew and Diego, whom he became very close. As a young boy, Christopher had no schooling.

pening scene portraying an open desperate ocean, a smooth drum beat, and an
exhausted slave. The film in its entirety expresses a brutally violent environment, a struggle
for freedom, and the need for friendship.
The movie surrounds the idea of the Constitution of America, and even more so, when
the words Life, liberty and property, flowed form Jefferson's mind. The movie smashes
in your face the though of, Who has the right to own a slave, another human being. Or ...

Framing (Tiger Woods)
I thought about using the recent story of how the senate passed a 1.1 trillion dollar spending bill that in part would give all federal employees a raise to find some kind of framing, but I took the easy way out and decided to find an article about the tiger woods scandal these past two weeks. As I looked through the endless amount of articles and stories about this poor mans tribulation It seemed to me that a lot of the male writers seemed to have the same opinion, in ...
The history of Moscow began in 1147, and since then Moscow has always had a leading position in the life of the whole country. It is the political, cultural, scientific centre of Russia.

- The Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
History must be learned and understood so past events do not happen again. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are these types of events. By the time Truman took office, Japan was nearly defeated. There were people in the Japanese government trying to find a way to end the war. However many believed the Japanese would fight to the bitter end. This is the same thing many Americans would do if people landed on our coast to fight. Our government did not want this war to be drawn out and we ...

- The Assyrian Empire
The Assyrian Empire is a broad spectrum topic that I know very little about, that being the reason for this selection. Before this class I knew nothing more about the Assyrian Empire than their name, and the fact that they existed a long time ago.
As it turns out, the Assyrians were the first of three (the Assyrians, Chaldeans, and Persians) Iron-Age empire building civilizations, maintaining dominance between the years 750-600 B.C.E., and are known for their engineering practices and their m...
