Anakin is a dynamic character. His archetype changes over the course of the story. In the beginning of the book, he is the archetypal the lover. This can be seen on page , where the author writes,
Anakin stares gloomily after Padm'e.
But by page 121-122 ,Anakin has begun to transform into the archetypal in to a monster.He finds out his mother has been kidnapped and he begins to go on a killing rampage in a viiliage. Evidence of this is on page 12-122
I killed them all.They're all dead,every single one of them.Not just men.The women and children too."
Good morning delegates of the General Assembly and chairperson. My name is Ahla Osman and along with Mehtab Bahar, we are honored to represent the country of Turkey. We are here to discuss the matter that Syria’s civil war will soon affect our country of Turkey. It is a great concern to our people, especially since Syria has chemical weapons that are continuously being thrown at us.
I started reading the book The Origins of the Vietnam War by Fredrik Logevall. Similarly to the previous book I read about Vietnam, its war and its nationalism, this book starts with an introduction of Vietnam's situation and relationship with France and the United States. One aspect of this book that I find very interesting is that it includes many documents including the Vietnamese Declaration of Independence signed by Ho Chi Minh in September of 1945. He declared Vietnam an independent nation.
The book Vietnam War is very interesting, especially since in includes more than twenty documents from the time during the Vietnam War and during Vietnam's fight for independence. One of the documents is the Paris Peace Accords which was supposed to bring peace in Vietnam and end the war. It only brought peace to Vietnam for a certain period of time. This document was written on January 27 in the year 1973 and signed by the United States, North Vietnam, South Vietnam, and the Provisional Revolutionary Government.
The book titles The Vietnam War by Mitchell Hall is a non-fiction book about Vietnam and its relationship with its colonizers, France and the United States. The book starts out with a chapter about the background of Vietnam and its fight for independence. It begins with broad history of Vietnam, not going into much detail. I would think that it would be a lot better if the author goes into greater detail when talking about the independence movements and the nationalist groups. There is very little information about their ways of obtaining independence.
The Forever War by Joe Haldeman is his take on a intergalactic war between humanity and an alien race; The Taurans, originally written in 1974. The then recently ended Vietnam war has obvious effects on the novels content, with the book having a strong anti-war message imbedded in it's content. The key concept of the book is theoretical time dilation, an effect associated with the concept of near the speed of light travel. What this means is that for example; on a ship traveling at near light speed for it's crew a day may pass.

My baby brother died last night, along with three more kids and one old mad that never seemed to talk. His name was Amal ( أمل ). She named him hope because she was positive he wasn't going to survive, with the war going on and all, she was positive. But when he finally came out and made it through the labor. My mother had thought it was a gift from the gods it gave her hope, that maybe we would make it through the war and the poverty. But he died because we couldn't feed him .
All immigrants come to America for many reasons all tied up to the American dream. Achieving this dream isn't easy . Lots of immigrants struggle in achieving this. In the book Children of The River the protagonist, Sundara, did achieve the american dream. Sundara wanted to be able to survive the war , get a good education and she wanted to be able to help her family earn a living. Just like any immigrant Sundara came to America with many goals and also had hopes to achieve them .
It is January, 1939 just before the war. The main character Liesel is traveling in a train with her mother and her little brother, Werner. Liesel and Werner are traveling to the small town of Molching in Germany. They are going to live with their new foster parents . Werner then dies on the train as they are traveling from hunger, cold temperature, and lack of medical treatment. Then when Liesel arrives in the town before her brothers burial, she steals this book from the Grave Digger and is a handbook that has fallen from the coat of one.
In Landry Signe's opinion piece, "Mali's Atrocities Began When It Lost Its Democracy, from the New York Times, the author writes about the dire situation in Mali. There has recently been a coup that resulted in a civil war in the country with many rebels coming from the Arab North trying to gain a stronghold in Sub Saharan Africa. Many of these rebels are jihadists who have taken control of the Northern part of the country resulting in Shariah law becoming more prevelant. Instead of the United Nations figuring out a quick solution to fix this, they hesitated.

Most interesting facts I learned through site operators!:
.gov: The Obama Administration is against any form of legalization of any drug. This is really interesting because I thought he was and legalization seems to be a pretty democratic thing. They also state some “facts” which contradict a lot of other stuff I’ve read about the good and bad effects of it.

The first article I read focused on how Britain, during 1939-1945, had three arms for fighting: the army, the navy, and the air force. Propaganda was so prevalent that it was considered to be the fourth arm. “Its basic aim was to break the enemy’s morale and ultimately the will to fight and, in so doing, boost the morale of friendly elements under enemy occupation.” Forms of propaganda included rumors (“whispers” or “sibs” in the jargon of wartime), radio, and printed material. Printed material usually consisted of leaflets.
The novel “1984”, was written George Orwell. Orwell picked Winston to tell the story from his point of view on the book. Winston believes that he is thirty-five years old,in the book he does not know the year or how old he really is. Winston has to guess at the year and how old he is in the book. Big Brother has posters in the city that watches the people everywhere they go. In Wintons apartment or room there is a poster of Big Brother that seems to watch him move around from one spot to the next.
There has been a lot of talk in the US about the troubles in Iran. During the Vice-Presidential debate a whole lot of time went to this very topic. Both Ryan, and Biden expressed their views about what should be done, and now that Obama has been reelected Biden will get his chance to hopefully effect the world in a positive matter. Obama, and his democratic platform, have "pinned their hope on diplomacy"(Henderson). I believe that this is the right way to approach the situation. Another war would only cause more problems for the US both economically and involving public safety.
This week has definitely been the most politically charged one we’ve seen in awhile. From surprising swing states to President Obama’s re-election- there hasn’t been much time to focus on important issues. But now that Obama is in for another 4 years, foreign policy and the Israel-Palestine conflict is once more a crucial debate.
In 1947, the UN made a proposition that Palestine and Israel, neighboring countries, be split up into two different Arab and Jewish nation-states. Jerusalem, an extremely holy city for both Muslims and Jews was in Palestinian territory, but the UN took control of it for 10 years- which Arabs opposed and civil war ensued. In 1967, the Israelis started what is known as the 6-day war against Palestinian Arabs and occupied most of the Palestinian territory, including the Gaza Strip, a name we hear a lot in the news today.
In the difficulties of today’s world, violence is often used to vent frustration. It is a tool used to manifest myriad of emotions in the daily turmoil of our lives. With an easy access to weaponry these days, acts of violence have become much more prevalent.
In this article it says, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to pull the U.S.. deeper into the confrontation with Iran over its suspect nuclear program. Also, republican challenger Mitt Romney's attempts to convince American voters that President Barack Obama is weak on foreign policy. In addition Prime Minister Netanyahu has threatened that Israel would attack Iran alone if it determines Tehran is reaching a point beyond which the Israeli military could do little to stop the march toward building a nuclear weapon.
In honor of 9/11 I started my day off with a reflection on how the Middle East is reacting to the horrific events that occurred eleven short years ago. On CNN I found this great article http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/10/world/meast/zawahiri-peace-plan/index.html... This is an article that interviews Ayman al Zawahiri. Ayman is the brother of the current leader of Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda has taken full blame for 9/11 and the 7/7 bombing. He has been in jail for the past ten years in a prison in Egypt. In his six by six feet cell he has devised a peace plan.
Britain and France join the U.S. in not tolerating Syria’s transportation of chemical weapons. In addition, the worries about the chemical weapons were also expressed by Russia. Also many reporters went missing in Syria. Many major countries are afraid of Syria’s ability to possess chemical weapons and are considering a partial no fly zone in the county. This article is from the New York Times and its basically about countries such as the US, being afraid of Syria having the ability to obtain chemical weapons and using them against other countries in the middle east.
1) The first video I produced included a combination on interviews and film. To start the film there is a presidential speech given by Franklin Roosevelt. I then include several pictures of the Pearl Harbor attack in Hawaii. The second part of the film is a short clip of Adolf Hitler. The film touches base on major subjects of World War two. This includes Pearl Harbor, Nazi Germany, the Manhattan project and the Holocaust.
