Catherine the Great
Catherine the Great Throughout history, Russia has been viewed as a regressive cluster of barely civilized people on the verge of barbarism.

He was called Robin Hood by some, a cold-blooded murder by others. Sometimes he appears as a romantic figure led astray by the circumstances of life that he could not control, sometimes a hero, and sometimes just an insignificant outlaw. Henry McCarty was a man of varied images. He was a killer, a gambler, singer,

Russia continued to follow an economic growth that Peter that Great ha

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
