This character is a spectacular detective, Sherlock Holmes. People loved Sherlock Holmes so much because he always solves the case and always defeat evil.

Debate on if Adolf Hitler Planned the Second World War

Debate on if Adolf Hitler Planned the Second World War
? From his youth, Hitler was a fierce, patriotic nationalist and wanted Germany to be the greatest power in the world and have a huge empire. This, he believed, could be achieved only through another World War. ? When Hitler was sent to prison in 1923 for treason, he then wrote his autobiography ?Mein Kampf? (which means ?My Struggle?). In this book, he expresses all his personal views and also war plans for Germany, if only he became the German Chancellor. Here, there is full evidence for the fact that first he wanted Germany to have a war with Russia. This was because of his idea of ?Lebensraum? (which means ?living space?). According to Hitler, Germany needed lots of living space for its growing population. This, he believed, could only be achieved by expanding eastwards, i.e. by getting land from Eastern Europe and Russia. ? In the same book of ?Mein Kampf? Hitler also expresses his hatred towards France, as he saw her as a definite enemy of Germany and therefore talked of his aim of invading France also. ?

The Use of Features of Real Speech to Create Humour

The Use of Features of Real Speech to Create Humour
Introduction Features of real speech such as hesitation, fillers, pauses and false starts are not common features in scripted material. The main reason for this is that, in real life, these features serve the purpose of giving the speaker time to think about what they are saying before they continue talking. In scripted material this is rarely necessary because characters are only expected to say things that are relevant to the story in some way. Therefore each character knows exactly what they need to say and can say it without using any features of real speech at all. However, there are some examples of scripted material that will deliberately use these features to create an effect. I have decided to look specifically at instances of scripted material using these features to create a comedic effect.

The Modern Day Periodic Table

The Modern Day Periodic Table
1) The modern day periodic table is based on an earlier table proposed by Mendeleev. The modern day periodic table of elements is arranged in order of increasing atomic number. This differs from earlier attempts to classify elements. Döbreiner the first to attempt it classified elements using their atomic weights. He identified triads a set of three elements with similar properties. Elements are no longer identified into triads but into groups and are now arranged in order of increasing atomic number. Each element in a group has similar properties e.g Noble Gases. Mendeleev proposed a more accurate table of elements. He arranged the elements in order of increasing atomic weight organizing the table into horizontal rows. In doing so he noticed a pattern but only when he left gaps. From this he concluded that gaps left in his table were for undiscovered elements. Mendeleev then predicted the properties of some of these missing elements, one of which he named eka-aluminium. [image]All the gaps in Mendeleev?s table have now been filled [image]A new group has been added called the Noble gases (discovered in 1980) Lecoq de Boisbadudran then discovered Gallium using atomic spectroscopy.

Enzymes are produced by living cells they are substances that act as a catalyst in living organisms, increasing the rate at which reactions take place without itself being effected in the process. Without them, reactions in cells would proceed at a too slower rate to sustain life. They are able to speed up the rate of chemical reactions. All enzymes are proteins and therefore have a tertiary structure. Each enzyme is a specific shape with an active site which is specific to one substrate molecule. When the substrate combines with the active site enzyme substrate complexes are formed. Ref. Letts revision guide biology at as / Understanding enzymes.

Auditing Percedure

Auditing Percedure
The factor of client relationship that creates a power imbalance in favor of the client is money. When partners in the audit firm are compensated according to their number of client, partners are more likely willing to do almost anything to keep their client happy. The independence of auditor is impairing in front of consulting fees, and interpretations of gaap will be push to the limit to satisfy client?s need. Due to this power imbalanced in favor of client, lots of company went in to bankrupt, each in companies where financial statement misrepresentation had taken place, billions of investment and retirement dollars were lost, and the perception that auditors were not independent from their clients were formed. Finally in 2002, congress passed the Sarbanes/Oxley Act in response to massive accounting scandals. In particular to the problem of the unbalanced relationship in favor of the client, Sarbanes requires boards of directors be independent of organization and exercise oversight over management and the audit function. Further, the board of directors through its audit committee is the ?client? of the public accounting firm. The audit committee must have at least one person who is a financial expert, other members must be knowledgeable in financial accounting and control, and must be comprised of ?outside? directors, not members of management or have other relationships with the organization. Meanwhile, they have oversight responsibilities over the internal audit and financial reporting process, be apprised of all significant accounting decisions made by management and changes in accounting systems and system control. On the audit company side, audit engagement partners, as well as other partners and managers with significant roles in the audit, must be rotated off the engagement every five years.

Contrasting Macbeths Two Meetings With The Witches

Contrasting Macbeths Two Meetings With The Witches
In Shakespeare?s Macbeth there are two instances in which Macbeth comes into contact with the three witches. These two instances are located in Act 1 Scene 3 and in Act 4 Scene 1. In both scenes Macbeth is informed about his future. However, these two scenes are greatly different from each other in many ways.
When Macbeth first meets the witches in Act 1 Scene 3 he doubts that the witches are ?of this earth? and doubts that they are capable of basic abilities such as speech, evidenced by the question, ?Speak, if you can, what are you?? In the second confrontation with the witches, Macbeth believes that the witches are real and thinks them to almost be superior. He shows this by attributing the witches with awesome powers when he says to the witches, ?Though you untie the winds and let them fight against the churches?, meaning that he believes the witches are capable of manipulation of these natural phenomenon. In addition, he asks Lennox if he had seen the witches leave, showing his belief that the witches are, in fact, real entities that exist in his world.

The Characters of Emily and Walter Possess Sentiment and Reason

The Characters of Emily and Walter Possess Sentiment and Reason
Walter Shandy and Emily St Aubert both use the power of reason to keep their emotions in check, but that is where the similarities end. Emily cares greatly about the sufferings of those around her, while Walter only thinks about why sufferings are brought upon him. Walter and Emily share the attributes of reason and sentimentality, but let these traits govern their actions in very different ways.

Walter Shandy is a highly reasonable man. He knows much of the great old philosophers, ancient texts, and scientific breakthroughs. This love of reason tends to make Walter lose his sentimental qualities. Take for instance the episode where he learns of his son Bobby?s death:
