HISTORY OF BASEBALL
HISTORY OF BASEBALL
HISTORY OF BASEBALL There has been much speculation about the origin of baseball. In 1907 a special commission decided that the modern game was invented by Abner Doubleday, a West Point cadet, at Cooperstown, N.Y., in 1839. One hundred years later the National Baseball Museum was opened at Cooperstown to honor Doubleday. Historians, however, disagree about the origin of baseball. Some say that baseball comes from bat-and-ball games of ancient times. It is a matter of record that in the 1700s Eng

His devotion to the belief that LSD and marijuana were gateways to enlightenment resulted in a new church, numerous prison sentences, and a following of both cele

Mahabharata
Mahabharata The Mahabharata is the largest epic of the world as it has about 100,000 verses. The original author was Vyasa who tried to depict the Great War between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. Even in the English adaptation by William Buck it is nearly two hundred and fifty pages long, and jam-packed with action and important events. With that in mind, I went to write my book report, and suddenly had several pages of a report, instead of one. However, I feel that this is the best way to descr

Countries in the industrialised world, too, have at times duelled with dangerously high inflation rates in the post WWII era. With varying degrees of success, all have employed great efforts to bring their inflation rates within acceptable limits. Generally, a moderate rate of inflation has been the ultimate goal. More recently, however, a few countries have pursued policies that strive to er

Economic Effects of the NBA Lockout The National Basketball Players Association lockout greatly affected the United States economy. Greedy team owners and greedy players fighting over large amounts of money caused the lockout. In March of 1998, team owners felt that they were paying players too much money, causing clubs to lose money, so they voted to reopen discussions on the collective bargaining agreement. The players on the other hand felt that any team financial problems were the owners doi

For the most part that was true, but we are forgetting about the majority of the population, otherwise known as the commons. These people can easily be compared to you and I living in these times.

The Soviet-German War is the most brutal episode of the most vicious war that mankind has ever seen (Clark 1). During the Great Patriotic War, as Joseph Stalin coins it, the Soviet Union emerges through pure tenacity as one of the worldís great superpowers. Although Stalin and the USSR emerge victorious, the sacrifices made are enormous (Clark 446). Estimates show between 20-25 million Soviets die from 1941-1945. Only 7-8 million Germans die during this same period (Encarta). Many of these dea

Under close examination, however, Oroonoko tells a more complex story. The volatile cultural, moral, and religious crosscurrents that Behn finds surrounding her manifest themselves in the forms of narrative equivocality and intermittent satire in Oroonoko.

The novel The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorn
The novel The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne was an objective description of the life of Hester Prynne, an adulteress. The novel does not go into specific details of the thoughts of the woman except to describe the tragic nature of her character. Tragedy faces the fact that not everything in life ends happily. Therefore, tragedy raises questions about morality; what is considered right or wrong, the meaning of human existence, and the control human beings have over their own actions. Hest
