One example of the separations he put in place was the Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act (1949), which banned couples of different races marrying. This would have also split up many couples and families who were already together just based on their ethnicity. Nelson Mandela, born 1918, was a South African black man who studied law and fought against apartheid. Earlier in his life, Mandela protested against segregation using peaceful methods. For example, he became a 'volunteer in chief' for the ANC, a group which tried to get the rights for non-whites.
William Harvey focused on the distribution of blood around the body. He discovered that blood flows only one way around the body, and that blood is reused and not constantly produced by the liver as Galen had suggested. He used many complex diagrams which when combined with the invention of the printing press - became quickly distributed throughout the world in the form of a book entitled 'An anatomical account of the motion of the heart and blood in animals'.

"In conclusion, although William was a brilliant leader of the Normans his leadership was not the most important reason the Normans defeated the English at Hastings. It is true that he was a brilliant leader but I think that the most important reason was that the English were completely exhausted from the days of fighting and marching prior to the battle. This factor is the most important because the English were just not ready for another huge battle in the space of a few weeks. The Normans had been ready and rested for months so they had a huge advantage over the exhausted English. The other reasons did play a part in the defeat I think that if the English did not have to fight off Hardrada first, they would have beaten William. The Normans did have the cavalry and Harolds tactics were poor but the cavalry were largely ineffective against the English line until Haralds tactics came into play with his inability to control his men meant that the English came off the hill and so the cavalry found it easy to pick them off. Overall the most important reason was because the English were completely exhausted."
"From the information I have gathered I conclude that I agree with the statement to a certain extent but not entirely. There are many reasons that the chance of a United Italy are slight and these reasons generally outweigh the arguments that its not. Most of the arguments against the statement also only hinder the arguments for it rather than exclude them completely. However even with this I fell that the way in which many of the states were run, soon enough the people would look to push for a United Italy as it would definitely be in their own personal interests."
The aim of this research is to investigate the reasons for the implementation of Apartheid and to find out the effects of the implementation on the whites and the blacks in South Africa. In the process of investigating the sources, I discovered that some sources were rather one-sided. I also realised that some of the present work, especially the websites, have rather incomplete information on Apartheid, thus allowing my work to further expand on. Apartheid is a discrimination system in which whites are legalised to discriminate against the blacks therefore it is important to study this system to prevent it from appearing around the globe."
