The Importance of Hippocrates To The History Of Medicine
Hippocrates (460? - 370? B.C.) is acknowledged as the father of modern
medicine. He was born on the island of Kos, and taught medicine there
before dying in Larissa. He is known as the founder of holistic
medicine, because he was the first to attribute illness to be one of
the four elements - fire, water, earth, and air - rather than an
affliction given by the gods. However, locals believed Hippocrates was
a descendant of Asklepios, god of medicine. Hippocrates himself was a
good example of his philosophy: he died aged 104. He is associated
with the Hippocratic Oath and also the Hippocratic Corpus

The Importance of Harry Hoveden in Making History

characters in the play, and the way in which his actions affect them
gives the audience some characteristics to decide on the personality
of particular characters.
Harry Hoveden is obviously an important character in the play because
he plays a major part in the play, and appears in most of the major
scenes. It is also clear that he is important to O’Neill because he is
often the one person he turns to in times of crisis.
Harry is presented as a very loyal and sober character by, he serves

The Tuber that Unites a Hungry World
Potatoes are a truly globalized crop. They can be found all around the world from the Americas to China, from Africa to Europe. In each of these places, they play their own unique role but the secret to their success is their hardy nature and their nutritional value. They become valuable to some peoples because they are able to grow in geographical locations or in weather situations that would cause other crops to fail. They are also incredibly nutritious, providing all that is necessary for survival. They are, in fact so nutritious that they have throughout history been one of the chief supporters of human life—along with rice, maize, barley, and

Many students wonder why the study of history is so important in today’s curriculums. A simple answer to that is, one cannot proceed without knowledge of the past, or to say that one learns from others mistakes as well as their own. This being true, another reason to study history is to see, not only our mistakes so we may learn, but also to see the good influences that molded the world and culture we live in. The ancient civilizations of the Greeks, Hebrews and Romans contributed to our modern civilization, not just the eastern-European but western civilization as well. Those cultures and civilizations shaped eastern-European culture which intern shaped our western culture, so for us to

Anon, a prolific writer, once wrote, ”I am an Engineer, I serve mankind, by making dreams come true”(Bennett). Engineers make dreams come true by creating magnificent structures that amaze even the most impractical people. The hard work and dedication of engineers can be easily seen by opening a window and viewing the structures that adorn the earth. The structures that civil engineers design and build define the culture of a society and help to keep pace with a constantly changing world.
Bridges, highways, drinking water- just a few necessities to the modern world, made possible by engineers throughout history, specifically civil engineers. Tracing back to 4000 BC, civil engineering

Both of these teachers are also trying to persuade the reader to want to study history. However, that is where the similarities end for these two essays end as they both want you to believe in two different concepts in studying history.

Equality was just a word to so many blacks for it had never been realized in their lives. Most blacks just settled for the right to be a citizen but the Niagara movement encouraged the fighting for the same rights as those of a white man. Without this movement there's no telling where blacks would be today.In 1895, Booker T Washington made a, now famous speech, to the citizens of Atlanta.

With all the glory and the splendour that some countries may have experienced, never has history seen how only only one man, Napoleon, brought up his country, France, from its most tormented status, to the very pinnacle of its height in just a few years time. He was a military hero who won splendid land-based battles, which allowed him to dominate most of the European continent. He was a man with ambition, great self-control and calculation, a great strategist, a genius; whatever it was, he was simply the best. But, even though how great this person was, something about how he governed France still floats among people's minds. Did he abuse his power? Did Napoleon defeat the purpose of the

The time has come again to celebrate the achievements of all black men and women who have chipped in to form the Black society. There are television programs about the African Queens and Kings who never set sail for America, but are acknowledged as the pillars of our identity. In addition, our black school children finally get to hear about the history of their ancestors instead of hearing about Columbus and the founding of America. The great founding of America briefly includes the slavery period and the Antebellum south, but readily excludes both black men and women, such as George Washington Carver, Langston Hughes, and Mary Bethune.

Women, even the ones of the Upper Class were still considered unequal of men even at this stage in history, even though the monarch was a woman. Yet, towards the end of the 19th Century, Women rebelled against their stereotypes. They began to seek smaller families so as to escape the child-breeding, household running typecast. Women became active in the social scene with charities, churches, local politics and the arts. Colleges became open to women in the 1870’s and many pursued an education.

Social class assumes different definitions based on an individual’s view on the topic. The definition may take the 20th Century assumption of sociological strata and one portrayed by the imperialist understanding of class. The sociological perspective of social class highlights an individual’s or group’s classification, as well as their position in societal standing, as predetermined by history, economy, and the role that they are expected to play as a result of being in that stratum (Jereb and Ferjan 155).

The Importance of the TelegraphThe telegraph is an electromagnet connected to a battery via a switch. When the switch is down, the current flows from the battery through the key, down the wire, and into the sounder at the other end of the line. By itself, the telegraph could express only two states, on or off. This limitation was eliminated by the fact that it was the duration of the connection that determined the dot and dash from each other being short and long, respectively. From these combinations of dots and dashes the Morse code was formed. The code included all the letters of the English alphabet, all the numbers and several punctuation marks.

that Jesus is lord, and that the earth was created by God. But how can some people believe this to be true, and some not?

The correspondence theory of truth relies of fact and reality. What we can tangibly feel, and have evidence for. Aristotle once said that “to say that which is, is not, or that which is not, is a falsehood; and to say that which is, is, and that which is not is not, is true.” Aristotle is saying, that what we can see in reality is actually truth, but if we were to say that

The Importance of Bridges to Society
Society has always relied on transportation to survive. When man first walked the earth he relied on himself for transportation. Eventually man learned to tame wild animals and use them as a form of transportation. And finally he created machines to take him places he could not reach on his own or with the assistance of any animal. Along with the evolution of transportation came maps to mark the locations of routes taken between cities and important locations. One invention developed to expand the reach of travelers was the bridge.
The earliest bridges were based on anything seen in nature such as fallen trees and eroded earth or rocks. They were
