How have Shakespeare's works been influential in modern media?
Shakespeare's work has been revamped and produced in many different forms since the years they were written in. A lot of the main themes and issues that are embedded in Shakespeare's work remain timeless. One example of this in modern media is 10 Things I Hate About You. This movie is a classic retelling of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew but set in a modern context and the wording updated. This has been done with many other versions, any Romeo and Juliet remake (there are several, one of the most famous being West Side Story) or Lion King. The Lion King is a great example of a disguised Shakespeare play. It disguises one of Shakespeare's more popular tragedies, Hamlet.

What are the causes behind the US Civil War?
The most common response to the causes behind the US Civil War is the emancipation of the slaves in the South but that is not the whole story. There were a couple of other causes of the US Civil War that are not as well known. One of these causes would be the economic tension between the north and the south. The south was a primarily agricultural industry, relying on the cotton industry while the north was more industrial and had several different sources of industry. The south's economy relied on the slave trade and the practice of slavery to allow their large agricultural economy to function and flourish. This difference in the type of industry caused a difference in opinion on how the economy should be run. Another cause was the difference in opinion about how the federal government should be controlled. The south thought that the states should have the right to overrule federal law while the north believed that the union was scared and that federal law should be binding in all states. Ultimately, the election of Abraham Lincoln was the last straw but there were many underlying tensions between the two sides before succession was called.
