Through the centuries, man has tried many attempts in inventing a mass killing mechanism. Alas, in 1945, such a mechanism was created. The atomic bomb was created after many years of the study of atoms. Finally, a way to split the atoms was born. Germany was the first to try, using uranium-235 to make a bomb. They discovered nuclear fission in late 1938. Efforts failed, but were picked up by the United States. Albert ... Word Count: 1070 | Page Count: 5

I believe that there are two ways to critique Peter Shaffer's Amadeus.
The first, and the easiest for me, is as an artistic work only.
As an artistic endeavor, Amadeus is a triumph. Particularly stunning is
F. Murray Abraham's performance as the tortured Court Composer Antonio
Salieri. Abraham portrays a talented yet mediocre musician who, having
revered God all his life, shows us clearly that pride goeth before the ... Word Count: 884 | Page Count: 4

In this paper I will examine the extensive role of the Bretton Woods system of exchange rates and the gold standard. ... Word Count: 4139 | Page Count: 16

governments exist. This effort is required to understand
America\'s political and philosophical roots. The ancient
Greek philosopher Aristotle pursued and ultimately
answered this question in his work, The Politics. Though
