Though we currently refer to the Civil War by that name, there was a long period of American History where it was referred to as "the War of Northern Aggression." Why is that? Where is it more likely to be referred to that way?
The Civil War is referred to as "the War of Northern Aggression" in the South and parts of the Southwest, because it was those states that suffered the most from the invasion of the North. It was referred to that way because most of the Southern soldiers were the lower class and non-slave owners. They were fighting to protect their homes and their land, not to protect slavery. Reading history, it is obvious that the North was fighting for the right reasons, and that it is a very very good thing that they won. But to the poor in the South, the Civil War was not kind.
In Act 3 Scene 1 of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Romeo says, "This day's black fate on moe days doth depend; This but begins the woe others must end," (Act 3, Scene 1, Lines 119-120). This quote addresses the inescapable force of Destiny within Romeo's life. What is another example of a time that Shakepeare addresses this force?
There are several examples of Shakespeare's use of Destiny in the play, most notably the opening narration of the play: "From forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life," (Prologue, Lines 5-6). Before we as the audience have met any of the characters in the play, we know their fate. It is therefore inescapable.
Jackie stopped at a gas station on her way home from school for an Iced Coffee. She decided to buy a lottery ticket with her leftover change and ended up winning $20,000,000. She puts it in a bank account with a 7% interest rate, compounded annually. How much money will be in her account in 16 years?
This is a compound interest problem, so we will use the formula: Total = Principle (1 + rate/number of times compounded)^(time * number of times compounded) or T=P(1 + r/n)^nt In this case: P = 20,000,000 r = 0.07 n = 1 t = 16 So, if we plug all that in, we get: T = 20,000,000(1 + 0.07/1)^(16 * 1) and we get T = 59,043,274.97 So, in 16 years, Jackie will have $59,043,274.97.
