Have you ever wondered why schools teach history? History is a subject that educates students about past events.

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
In making history, Brian Friel uses Hugh O’Neill to define the
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
to balance out some of the other characters almost like a buffer. His

One of the most crucial aspects of the development of philosophy of African history has been a realization of the importance of the spoken or oral traditions in the framing and interpretation of African history. The oral tradition is a living, and dynamic organism within the African community, and the original element of oral traditional is djembe. The Djembe is a traditional African drum and is the symbolic instrument of the West African community. The Djembe is held on a high pedestal in the social communal aspect of the society’s daily routine, and is seen in many gatherings. The value and importance of the djembe as embodiment of African tradition and its translation in West Africa and

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

The first known robot was created around 400-350 BC by the mathematician Archytas and was a steam powered pigeon. Archytas constructed his bird out of wood and used steam to power the movement of the robot. This bird was then suspended from a pivot bar at one point the bird managed to fly as much as 200 meters before it ran out of steam. This is not only the first known robot. Robots are machines capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically or controlled by imputed source by impued source.

Black history month is an observance in the United States that is celebrated in the month of February to remember all of the important African Americans in history. This observance is still celebrated annually and brings forth a debatable question such as is there still a need to celebrate black history month. I strongly believe that Black history month still should be celebrated for several reasons one being that children need to know how African Americans contributed to society. Young African American children need to know their ethnicity background. The legendary icons who fought for whom was considered “colored” people need to be acknowledged.

The ancient method of using the earth’s rotation around the sun as a method of keeping time requires one to add leap seconds to the time determined by atomic clocks in order to keep it coordinated with celestial time. This is because the earth has been slowing down over the years due to friction between ocean tides and the shallow sea floors caused by the gravitational pull of the moon. This moon

The essays that were studied the closest were the one by Peter Stearns and the one by Jack Betterly. Both men seem to be qualified on the basis that they were both history teachers in their lifetimes. Because of this they both appear to be writing to teachers and students in their essays. 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. Stearns writes that history is a study of the past while Betterly writes history is the study of the present. History should be studiedStearns's essay states that history

The Niagara Movement was one of the most influential movements in American history. The ideals that they encouraged pushed blacks to fight for true equality. 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

Before Solon, Athens was experiencing a severe law of debt, greedy nobles, causing the suffering of the poor and a vast gap between the classes.

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.

The issue of whether HBCU’s are still needed have been occurring constantly in today’s nation. HBCU’s have been in existence for almost two centuries now. Their principal mission is to educate African Americans, and they have. HBCU’s graduate more than 50% of “African American” professionals and public school teachers. But, HBCU’s have been facing challenges such as their decrease in diversity, financing, and graduate rates which has caused a speculation of their importance in today’s communities. I believe that HBCU’s are still needed.

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).

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.

This contrasts to the idea Loewen emphasizes when saying, “Social class is probably the single most important variable in society” (Loewen 203).

Power can be a dangerous thing at times. Throughout the centuries, there have been many individuals with vast knowledge and power.

In chapter XIV when stating the importance of studying the art of war we realize how dynamic a prince’s actions must be for “he should never lift his thoughts from the exercise of [this art], and in peace he should exercise it more than in war“ (Machiavelli 60). This not only makes the prince a well-informed leader to his military but it also keeps him well aware of strategic warfare. In times of war a well-informed prince will know his terrain, his mountains, and his rivers. He will make
