Was Hitler a Totalitarian Dictator? A Totalitarian is a dictator which controls all the aspects of their citizens lives. In practice the term is often is used to describe a political situation where a small group of people, or one organization, has total authority over a nation. In Hitler's Germany there were many characteristics of a Totalitarian state and a Totalitarian Dictatorship. The Government ran and censored the media. All forms of communication were liable to interference from above and could, and were, heavily censored. This removes freedom of speech, therefore enabling the government to influence popular opinion via propaganda and false news messages. The Age of Anxiety, the age of the lost generation, was also an age in which modern Fascism and Totalitarianism made their appearance on the historical stage. Before examining if Hitler established a totalitarian dictatorship, it is necessary to look at how Hitler, once in power, established a dictatorship. In my essay I will be examining three different methods of control, one how Hitler manipulated the law, two how Hitler used terror and three how Hitler used propaganda and persuasion. Hitler used the law to his own advantage throughout his quest to become the Fuhrer and when he eventually became the Fuhrer. Hitler removed his opposition through the Enabling Act. The Enabling Act gave Hitler the power to
Investigation Report Aim Theory When an object is dropped in air, it accelerates. If it is allowed to drop far enough then it can reach its terminal velocity. This is the maximum velocity of the object during its fall and occurs when the upward force of air resistance acting on the object equals the weight of the object. So at terminal velocity...

Why did a mass Civil Rights movement emerge in the late 1950's? The importance of civil rights for Black Americans was at an all time high within in the late 1950s.Black Americans having been oppressed not only within in their rights of freedom yet also in terms of education and employment felt that it was time for a major change. Thus various civil right movements had to be implemented. However, it is key to understand the reasons why a civil rights movement did not occur earlier on for it allows us to gain an insight into the levels of segregation and lack of opportunities that Black Americans faced. During the inter-war year period of 1920 to 1941, Black Americans amongst other minorities suffered from the racial segregation that had deemed to govern the way in which they would live their lives. During the year known as the 'Roaring Twenties' America was enjoying unprecedented prosperity having become the worlds leading industrial nation. However, this affluence was only shared mainly by the white Americans, whilst conditions for Black individuals only seemed to get worse; arguably discrimination, prejudice and racism reaching a peak during these years. Moreover, the latter was upheld by a radical groups known as the Ku Klux Klan made up of different individuals some possessing a great deal of power such as governors and police officers. They felt that segregation of
The effect of sucrose solution concentration On osmosis in potato chips Plan I am going to cut six pieces of potato using a borer. They will all the same weight. I will make them all 0.7g. I will be able to make sure they are all the same weight-using scales. If a piece of potato is too big I will use a scalpel and a tile to trim it so they are all the same weight and then place these into a test tube each. I will hold the test tubes in a test tube rack. Using the measuring cylinder I will measure 10ml of each strength of sugar solution rinsing the measuring cylinder after each measure. This will then be added into separate test tubes with the pieces of potato. E.g. a piece of potato will have 0.0M strength; a piece of potato will have 0.2M strength and a piece of potato will have 0.4M strength etc. I will put a sticky label on each test tube stating what strength of sugar solution it contains. I will then leave these for 2 hours and see what happens then record my results. APPARATUS A potato Sugar solutions (0.0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1.0) Borer Scalpel Tweezers Scales 6 test tubes Test tube rack Measuring cylinder I will measure the amount of sugar solution in the test tubes. I will change the strength of sugar solution in each test tube. To make the experiment a fair test I will keep the weight of the pieces the same weight I will also only add the same

Wilfred Owen's Anthem for Doomed Youth and Siegfried Sassoon's Attack - Explore the ways in which Sassoon's and Owen's words convey powerful feelings about the First World War in these two poems.
Wilfred Owen's Anthem for Doomed Youth and Siegfried Sassoon's Attack Explore the ways in which Sassoon's and Owen's words convey powerful feelings about the First World War in these two poems. Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon are seen as the two greatest British First World War poets. 'Attack' and 'Anthem for Doomed Youth' attempt to dissuade young men to go to war and to stop them from 'dying as cattle' on the front. These views were not conventional. The British Government and the people on the Home Front were urging people to go to war and said it was 'a noble thing to die for your country. In these poems and many of their other poems Owen and Sassoon redefine war, from being a noble thing to die for you country to the poets mocking the war and describing the brutal reality of trenches and the Western Front. Therefore it is a very controversial poem. Sassoon used his powerful poetic voice to shock Britons and warmongers. His poems savaged the smug cruelty of the generals who sacrificed hundreds of lives of innocent soldiers and told people about the reality of the Great War. Owen had the same views on the war but his work had not yet been published but when he met Sassoon at Craig Lockhart Hospital during the war Sassoon noticed his talent as a poet and it was there that Owen was most inspired writing poems such as 'Anthem for Doomed Youth'. Wilfred Owen's 'Anthem
Effect of enzyme concentration on initial rate of reaction The objective of this experiment is to determine how differentiating the concentration of the enzyme catalase affects the initial rate of reaction, in the decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) The equation of this reaction is: Hydrogen Peroxide(aq) --> Water(l) + Oxygen(g) 2H2O2(aq) + catalase(aq) --> 2H2O(l) + O2(g) The source of the enzyme Catalase in this experiment will be yeast, specifically the Saccharomyces Cerewisea strain, as it is easy to obtain and very safe with no harmful effects to the environment. The technique used to obtain a set of results will be the downward displacement method, where evolved oxygen product from the reaction is passed through a delivery tube and into a water filled burette, pushing the water out of the burette, leaving obtainable results of Oxygen collected. These results will be taken every 5 seconds for two minutes and will give the rate of reaction. My Equipment will be: * Burette * Side-arm Conical Flask * Bung * Tubing * Yeast * Hydrogen peroxide * Water Bath * Water/Margarine Tub * Distilled water/pH7 buffer * Stopwatch I chose to have a burette to collect the evolved Oxygen, as it has a great degree of accuracy. The gas can be measured to 0.05ml or 0.5cm3. I chose to have a side arm conical flask to provide a source for the evolved oxygen to travel
Mark Cranshaw 0P/11P Physics coursework Catapult Investigation Planning: * Preliminary work The preliminary part of my catapult investigation was to see how far I could stretch an elastic band without breaking and also to test to see what readings I could use in the final experiment. I am going to plan an experiment where I shall investigate the firing distances of 100g weights fired by two elastic bands wrapped around a stool. First of all we did our preliminary experiment. In this we investigated elastic bands to see which would be most suitable to use in our final experiment. We tested the elastic bands with different forces (1-10 Newton's) and recorded the distances of which they were stretched. I realised that if I stretched the elastic bands with more than a force of 10 Newton's then they would probably break or loose their elastic energy. Here is a diagram showing our trial experiment: The results of this experiment are shown on the graph on the next page and also below: Force (Newton's) Distance stretched (cm) 24 2 29 3 36 4 44 5 54 6 64 7 73 8 80 9 86 0 90 1 05 2 09 3 20 4 23 5 25 From the results it is quite easy to see that the bigger the force on the elastic band the further it will stretch. From this I will make a prediction: "The more force put on the elastic band the further the weight will travel the further the elastic
Should Britain Join the Euro? One of the primary arguments against joining is that there are severe structural differences between the members' economies. These may well undermine the success of the project, meaning Britain would do well to stay out. There is no guarantee that the Euro will be successful, and this is a key issue to consider when assessing whether or not Britain should join at this stage. Britain has already had her fingers burnt by the disastrous entry into the doomed European Exchange Rate Mechanism, the previous attempt to fix European currencies against each other which collapsed, plunging Britain into recession. Another key argument against entry is the loss of economic independence that would be seen from Euro membership. If Britain were to join the Euro, our interest rates, currently the tool used for control of inflation by the Bank of England, would be set by the European Central Bank (ECB). Since being given independence the Bank of England has been successful in controlling inflation in this way. Problems could well arise if Britain loses interest rates as a tool for its own economic objectives. The past few decades have shown we need all the measures we can to keep control of the economy! To illustrate this problem, let us suppose that there are inflationary fears in Germany and France, two influential member countries, but not in Britain. In

COMMENTARY The article I chose to write was based on the influences of the media on people's body images in the world today and how it affects many young teenagers in trying to fulfil this "ideal image" of a size zero. My piece challenges a highly held view on the influential exploitation of consistent sickening body images and false fabrication to how people should look, leading to outstanding statistics in the account of teenagers being diagnosed with anorexia. My article is straight away hit with 3 different rhetorical questions which are used to help the audience think about what they are about to read, it increases persuasion and message processing, creating a relatively strong, resistant attitude in the reader to obtain a greater importance into the article they are about to overlook. Starting off my first paragraph is the use of a declarative sentence which just generally states the facts that the urges people have to feel good about themselves is highly disintegrating to virtually nothing. The declarative sentence is used to state a fact which allows the reader to feel like we know what we are talking about; making them feel that what they are reading is worth while and helpful in ways to carry on reading. Leading off my 2nd paragraph is again another rhetorical question, again to include the reader and make them feel more involved in the text. Within this
