What military impacts did Canada play in World War II? IB Internal Assessment D-Day, Juno Beach. North Nova Scotia Highlanders going ashore from L.C.I.(L.) 118. A. Plan of Investigation Usually ignored on the world's map as a major powerhouse, Canada actually played a very important goal in the military progress of World War II, such as the Allied invasion of Italy and the Battle of Normandy. 1.1 million Canadians served in the armed forces during this war, and thousands more serve in the navy, with the casualty reading 45,000 dead and 55,000 wounded. By the end of the war, Canada has temporarily become a noteworthy military power; however, it is still being disregarded by the Big Three. The investigation attempts to correct this incorrect assumption and explore Canada's vast contribution to World War II as well as its significance, using both primary and secondary sources, such as Defining Canada: History, Identity, and Culture, a textbook by Nick Brune and associates, or Morton Desmond's A Military History of Canada. B. Summary of Evidence Prior to war, Canada expected that its primary contribution would be the production of war supplies rather than the mobilizations of armed forces. However, as France fell and Italy sided with Germany, Canada was forced entered the war and became the next strongest nation to Britain. Canada declared war on Germany on September 10,
The Protestant work ethic in Daniel Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe" Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe has become the classic adventure story for children. But closer reading of the original text reveals a novel of enormous significance. It is much more than an adventure tale. Robinson Crusoe represents the heroism of the character through protestant work ethic ( puritan work ethic ) and salvation from hardship through God and religion. The main focus of Robinson Crusoe's existence is work. Throughout the whole adventure he is divided between adventuring and creating , between the impulse to make profits and the impulse to make a life. As I said Defoe makes clear that a man's power over himself and nature depends upon ceaseless labor. But in order to fulfil his task he needs conditions to do so. That's why one of Crusoe's first goals is to become the master of the island. In the beginning of the novel he achieves some success in mastering his situation, overcoming handicaps and controlling the environment. He is shipwrecked on a deserted island and he makes it his own home. Without having any tools he constructs a shovel, a table, and a chair. All these things made with hard working prevent him from being a savage. One of his major concerns after being shipwrecked is his food. He is worried about not having anything to eat "anything to eat or drink to comfort me." He soon supplies
The Space Race was a product of the Cold War. Two countries were involved, the United States and the Soviet Union
The Space Race The Space Race was a product of the Cold War. Two countries were involved, the United States and the Soviet Union, two of the most powerful countries remained from World War Two, Both these Superpowers challenged each other in a race to become the most technological advanced nation and space was the arena. There was a strong link between the Space Race and the Nuclear Arms Race which involved a battle for Military Supremacy. Then there was also an Ideological war between Capitalism and Communism. If it was not for the space race there would have not been technological advances throughout the course of history, strength of nations would have continued to be quite weak, and people would have not made historical discoveries about the universe that we live in. The world today owes plenty to the Space Race because if it was not for the race technology would have stood still. There were launches of satellites by both sides the USA and the Soviets, which suggested there was technological advancement by both countries. The Space Race began shortly after the launch of Sputnik an artificial satellite in October 1957 from the Soviet Union (Anissimov, M 2010, para 1) and the Soviets took the lead in the space race. The launch of Sputnik suggested the strength of the Soviet Union as a country was quite strong and advanced, and earned its Superpower'd status. The United
'Keeping The Favour Of Henry VIII Was The Dominant Factor In Wolsey's Conduct of Foreign Affairs Between 1515 and 1529' (Shakleton). How Far Do You Agree With This Statement?
'Keeping The Favour Of Henry VIII Was The Dominant Factor In Wolsey's Conduct of Foreign Affairs Between 1515 and 1529' (Shakleton). How Far Do You Agree With This Statement? Certainly, before 1515, Wolsey needed to make the 'dominant factor' of foreign affairs to be Henry's favour in order to rise to a high position in the government. This is shown by his preparations for the invasion of France in 1513 where Wolsey made sure that 'the King's wishes must take precedence over all other considerations' (Randell). However, in the years 1515 - 1529 historians disagree as to whether this view is still valid. 'Wolsey was a slavish follower of papal policy' (Pollard). This historian's view shows that Wolsey's main priority was not Henry VIII's favour, but the favour of the pope. However, Scarisbrick disagree and states that Wolsey, 'Ignored the papacy as often as he supported it,' claiming that Wolsey's primary aim was the maintenance of peace. Doran also goes onto state that Wolsey's primary aim was that he wanted to get England to the 'forefront of the international scene.' The above views all show an unselfish Wolsey, working for the good of someone else. Although, on the surface these aims may seem to be the driving force, on closer examination many of the events which take place in Wolsey's foreign policy have the dominant factor of Wolsey improving his own position, wealth
Can heart disease be prevented? Preventing heart disease. Something our doctors tell us about all the time, something we all want to do, but what exactly is a "heart disease". How can we prevent it if we don't even know what it is? Every one has heard the terms "heart attack" and "stroke" but hardly anyone knows what they mean. Let's start right at the beginning. A heart disease, medically known as cardiovascular disease, is a disease of the heart and the blood vessels. Most people think only the middle aged and elderly get such diseases but no, cardiovascular diseases can be found in children as young as the age of seven years old. This is strongly liked with the children's lack of exercise and a poor diet. There are many types of cardiovascular diseases of which the major ones are atherosclerosis, coronary, rheumatic, congenital, myocarditis, angina and arrhythmia. Heart disease can arise from congenital defects, infection, narrowing of the coronary arteries, high blood pressure, or disturbances. (1) Atherosclerosis is the thickening of the inner layer of the arterial walls due to the deposit of cholesterol, fibrous tissue, dead muscle cells and blood platelets. This deposit is also known as atheromatous plague or an atheroma. Rheumatic heart disease used to be one of the most serious heart diseases in both children and adolescence as it involves damage to the entire
ROMEO AND JULIET In the play "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare love is one of the major themes. In this play it explores different types of loves. There are different types of love for example Romeo love towards Rosaline is really an infatuation and Romeo love towards Juliet is with tender passion. Romeo is a free spirited youth of 16 living in 17th century Verona, Italy. In the beginning of the play, Romeo is pining for Rosaline, the object of his unrequited love. He spends most of his time sighing over his depressing and virtually nonexistent love life. Romeo is first mentioned as an aimless wanderer, preoccupied with thoughts of Rosaline. Such passivity in his approach to love with Rosaline is a theme that recurs until he meets Juliet. Rosaline is Romeo's obsession, yet it is in his description of her that his superficial approach to love is revealed. When describing her to the cynical Benvolio, Romeo's descriptions are vague and generalized, referencing Rosaline's physical beauty and attractiveness. Rather than articulating why he loves her or offering specifics examples of her uniqueness, he curses the unfairness of unrequited love and alluring beauty: "Show me a mistress that is passing fair, what doth her beauty serve, but as a note, Where I may read who passed that passing fair" (I, i, 234-6). Romeo goes on to lament his spurned advances: "She is rich
How does Robert Louis Stevenson explore the duality of human nature in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? Robert Louis Stevenson presents an interesting novel, which is about freedom through scientific exploration and also explores the themes of duality. This novel explores the themes of duality through social, religious and scientific ideas. Similarly, Victorian society seems to be discussing these ideas. Robert Louis Stevenson may have been influenced by these ideas and this culminates in the creation of the novel The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde provided a way in which people could (and still can) aurally become intrigued by science fiction. In the novel, Dr. Jekyll undergoes a terrifying transformation into Mr. Hyde. This is an intriguing dilemma, which Dr. Jekyll faces; to be immorally free, or to stay morally trapped. This problem will eventually lead to the death of both Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Jekyll was thinking about the duality of man even before he made his discovery, which highlights how much he wishes to find a way to escape reality. When Jekyll says, ".... That man is not truly one, but truly two", (p70) he seems to be implying how there is more to life and people than meets the human eye; there are hidden (maybe even evil) aspects of life which are explained through duality. (And the duality of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde). This quote

Biochemical techniques DNA to Protein Introduction On this essay I will explain how Deoxyribonucleic acid DNA, stores all of our genetic information and the processes of transcription and translation which expressed genetic information. DNA is an extremely long slim macromolecule made up of many different deoxyribonucleotide subunits. Each DNA molecule is made up of two very long polymers linked by hydrogen atom and coiled in the shape of a double helix. Each of this two polymers contain many structures called nucleotide. Which broken down in three parts: deoxyribose ( a five carbon sugar) a phosphate group and a nitrogenous base. There are four crucial different nitrogenous bases that present in DNA: thymine, cytosine, adenine and guanine. These bases are the foundation of the genetic code. Sometime represented as T, C. A. G. this bases always pair up in the same way, adenine forms a bond with Thymine and cytosine bonds with guanine as shown in the below diagram.  This four sequence of DNA have big role in living organisms, the main function of nucleic acids is to store and transmit genetic information and use that information to direct the synthesis of new protein. Human DNA is nearly a meter in length whereas viral DNA is 1.7mm. DNA is the molecule which controls the synthesis of proteins. Proteins are used for growth and repair and also as enzymes, in
Social Responsibility: Good for Business Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is very important to the success of business ventures. Although, CSR is not required when conducting business, it is much more beneficial to adopt values and morals than to abandon ethical responsibilities. The concept of social responsibility does not just include following government laws and regulations or charitable contributions. It includes going above and beyond the bare minimum that the government requires. Businesses should actively participate in the social affairs where the needs of the stakeholders should be considered. These needs could range from economic concerns to societal and environmental issues. CSR has the ability to strengthen a company by building a loyal consumer following. It can mean the difference between long-term success and failure. A slight miscalculation of key social and economical issues could result in ruined reputations, damaged financial integrity and injured relationships with customers and stockholders. (www.glocom.org) For example, a business may not want to spend money on environmental conservation issues (recycling, using non-aerosol cans) due to high costs. From the CSR perspective, it would be a great investment for a company to spend money on saving the environment if it created new markets for the environment conscious products or if it benefited
CW Charlotte Steen 23rd January 2004 The Taming of the Shrew Explain the ways that Shakespeare presents Katherine and Bianca. Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew shows two sisters: Katherina and Bianca, as two complete contrasts to each other. He used various techniques to achieve these effects. The same techniques are used for both sisters to show comparisons between their characters. Shakespeare created two different characters by making the outcome of the techniques very different from each other. Shakespeare has used the theme of deception and disguise and based the play on the idea that things are not always as they seem. One of the techniques used is presentation of the two girls based on their behaviour and speech. The oldest of the sisters is Katherina who is otherwise known as Kate. At her first entrance in Act 1 Scene 1 she threatens to hit Hortensio over the head with a stool: "comb your noddle with a three-legged stool". This is because they have been making snide remarks about her such as Gremio says, "to cart her! She's too rough for me"; meaning that she should be taken in an open cart and ridden down the streets, like a convicted prostitute, because she is not like the ideal Elizabethan woman and people are ashamed of her. The Shakespearean audience had the idea of a perfect woman. They
