*Hera*



Hera was the sister and wife of Zeus, The King of Gods,
which made her The Queen of Gods. Hera was the Goddess of
Marriage and Love, and protector of married women.

Cronos and Rhea were Hera and Zeusís parents. When
Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Poseiden and Hades were born, Cornos
thought one of his children were going to kill him, therefore he

grew up he came back and killed Cronos and freed his brothers
and sisters.

  • Auguste Rodin
    Auguste Rodin Like some artists, Rodin was not an overnight success. Even though he was rejected numerous times from art schools because of his art style, he prevailed in the end. Rodin, like many artists, got their inspiration from other great and famous artists. In Rodin\'s case, his inspiration came from Michelangelo. In Rodin\'s more famous works, one can see the similarities between the two artists\' artwork. Rodin\'s parents were not wealthy, therefore, he was not able to attend an art sch

    1990s 1880s economy As one can see there are many striking parallels between the Gilded Age or the era from the eighteen eighties to the eighteen nineties compared to the Silicon Age of the nineteen eighties to the nineteen nineties. The preconditions for these two massive economic booms share similar birth paths laid in laissez faire policy, no regulation or deregulation and innovative booms. Before the 1880\'s there was no real conflict between the welfare of the American people and that of it

  • Greek Mythology
    Greek Mythology In order to explain certain natural events, such as earthquakes, windstorms, and thunder and lightning storms, The Greeks invented a collection of myths and characters. Just as with most modern religions, Greek Mythology bases most of itís myths on morality and ethics issues.

    Seven Wonders of the Ancient World How many individuals can name the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World? These ancien, man made monuments were compiled into a list considerable in their enormous size or some other unusual quality (Donovan 325). We should not let these legacies be left behind in the past, because each of these "Seven Wonders" has a story hidden within their ruins, or in one case, within its remains. Picture these architectural structures as I uncover the legends of The Statue of
  • Titanic
    Titanic I have always been intrigued by the Titanic, but my interest boomed with the recent development in how the side of the ship was damaged. I was amazed that instead of causing a gaping wound, as was previously believed, the iceberg that Titanic hit merely caused a series of small rips in the side of the ship. Sonar was used to determine that the side of the ship had six small slits that were no bigger than a single hand (http://www.titanic.cc/sonar.htm). This research amazed me because of

He exposes this irreverent attitude by his comparisons of conducting to such deceiving professions as politics and acting.

Relentless in his criticism, Stravinsky uses his images throughout the passage to reveal his own disrespectful and scornful attitude toward the
