Roman Roads

...Roman Roads It is often said that "all roads lead to Rome," and in fact, they once did. The road system of the Ancient Romans was one of the greatest engineering accomplishments of its time, with over 50,000 miles of paved road radiating from their center at the miliarius aurem in the Forum in the city of Rome. Although the Roman road system was originally built to facilitate the movement of troops throughout the empire, it was inevitably used for other purposes by civilians then and now. ROMAN ENGINEERING Of course, the roads were used for trade, as were the waterways surrounding and connecting parts of the Roman Empire to itself and the rest of the known world. The Romans had exceptional nautical technology for their time; however their network of roads, even with the perils of land travel, was unparalleled in convenience and was often the only choice for travel or shipping goods. The Romans were the first ancient civilization to build paved roads, which did not prevent travel during or after inclement weather. Indeed, mud or gravel would hinder, if not completely halt many vehicles pulled by animals or other people, not to mention discourage travelers on foot. Roman engineers, however, did not stop with just paving Roman roads. Roads were crowned—that is, they were higher in the middle than on the sides to allow water to run off—and they often had gutters for drainage along the shoulders. Probably the mostincredible engineering feat concerning the Roman road system,...

The Road

...In The Road by Cormac McCarthy, It is said that fear is the strongest motivator in the world. People in fear are willing to do whatever, go beyond any border and forget all rules. Fear can easily take over our mind and control our every move. But how much does it take to push a person beyond his limits? What kind of a fear can make us forget everything about humanity and morals? These questions are one of the main themes in Cormac McCarthy’s novel ”The Road” We are all afraid of different things. Some are afraid to lose their family and friends others on the other hand their money and possessions. Cormac McCarthy’s great novel ”The Road” tells us a story of a post-apocalyptic world where everything is destroyed and life is almost extinct. There are left only handful people, who are willing to do everything to survive. But some of them are willing to go further than the others. Fear influences every person differently.

Silk Road Ccot

...between different lands from the year 200 BCE to 1450 CE, the Silk Roads experienced many patterns of interaction. During this period of time, the roads changed such as the amount they were used, which changed as nations and empires rose and fell; the goods and ideas that traveled the roads after Europe and Asia increased their trading; and lastly the safety of the roads varied throughout this time period. However, the Silk Roads still experienced many continuities as well, for example their original purpose which was to facilitate the exchange of goods between Asia and Europe never changed; they continued to influence many cultures especially with the traveling of religions; and the Silk Roads have always had long term affects and influence on powerful empires. Towards the beginning of their patterns of interaction in 200 BCE, the Silk Roads were minimally used in East Asia. As time progresses, the roads increase as did empires such as Rome and Han who grew both economically and culturally due to usage of the roads. But, instability and economic pressures took a toll on the two empires, and when Rome fell in 476, the Silk Roads were used far less than how they originally were. The roads managed to pick up again as the Byzantine Empire in the east emerged and was able to prosper from usage of the already available roads. However, the Mongols come into play and invade the empire and end Byzantine’s era with the Silk Roads. In Western Europe, society was in the period called......

The Road

...A relationship between father and son could be described as loving or hated. However in the book The Road by Cormac McCarthy, it is put into a completely different situation. The father and son of The Road are surviving for each other. From a post apocalyptic setting they are trying to reach the south. The father and son of The Road are left with no names, which makes it more mysterious. Within the book the father often times lies to the son about certain things. For the good of the son and humanity, it is a good choice to tell his son what is for the better. The better of things could be for the son’s future. The father and son go through a long journey to the south. The father believes that the south should be an easier place to be for the father and son to survive the deadly cold winter. The story tells of the father constantly telling himself that his son is the best thing that has happened and that he is the only light left in his life. They have to try to avoid many obstacles like those trying to steal their belongings or others trying to kidnap them to eat them. The father always seems to believe there is nothing left of his life except to keep his son safe and as happy as he can be. In parts of the book the son asks the father about their life. His son would ask if he would die what would the father do? The father easily answers that he would die also to be with his son. The father lives only for his son and would be willing to do anything for him. The father......

Silk Road

...Introduction What evolved along the silk road was a highly complex system of trade stretching between Rome, China and the Spice Islands (South East Asia). For a long period, Roman nor Chinese administration possessed direct knowledge of geography, political or social organisation of the other. It was the traders, from whom goods passed, that profited best from the indirect contacts between Rome and China, and the preservation of ‘trade secrets’, such as the sources of Gold and Spices, and the technique of manufacturing silk. This arduous work was usually conducted by nomads of central Asia and mariners of Indonesia, who, as suggested by Loewe as underdeveloped, lower-class people. What were the ecological factors faced by traders along the silk road? In term of ecological conditions along Silk Road, there will be a focus on inter Asia’s ecological zones along Silk Road, which has four major ecological zones: forests, steppe (grasslands), deserts, and mountains. Firstly, the forests zone along Silk Road. The trees of this area are evergreens, such as fir, spruce, and pine. In addition, forests are a plenty of sources of fur, timber and other products. The population of this area is small, which are living by hunting, fishing or trapping and they are not so importantly in the region’s history in the past. Secondly, the steppe of Inner Asian stretches across Kazakhstan, northern Xinjiang province in China, and Mongolia. This is the “eastern half of the great...

The Road

...Running Head: Biblical Comparison of The Road Biblical Comparison of The Road by Cormac McCarthy Joshua G. West Henry County High School Abstract The Road by Cormac McCarthy (2006) is a novel that explains the struggles of a father and son as they thrive to survive in a post-apocalyptic society. Cormac McCarthy (2006) put a lot of details into the story and this world, but I believe he did not make up this. There are many clues and links between his story and what the Bible has so say about the rapture and tribulation period. From the beginning of the world they live in, to the characters involved in the novel, Cormac McCarthy’s (2006) novel could be described as parable of what the bible has to say of the end times. However, the novel goes deeper than just a comparison to the end times, it goes into saving your moral values, no matter how difficult your trials are becoming. Biblical Comparison of The Road by Cormac McCarthy Words often have a deeper meaning then what we first see or hear. In Cormac McCarthy’s (2006) prize winning novel, The Road, McCarthy (2006) wrote down the story of a man and his son struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. Along their journey you see the mother walk out on them, robbers attack them and inner struggle in their own minds. If one takes a closer look at the story, they see several points which could all lead back to a single source and hold a deeper meaning. When facing a tough dilemma, it can be a quite difficult...

The behavior of the management is decent and kind towards the workers and they expect employees to be loyal, sub-servant, compliant and co-operative to management.

The Road

...novel, The Road, we are met with the nameless characters, known as a father and his young son, who travel and attempt to survive post apocalyptic Earth. They set out to the south west in hopes to find people just like themselves, who are still morally correct in a world full of cannibalistic savages. The father shows the boy how to survive through making fires, dispersing their daily intake of food, sleeping in various locations, and other ways just to be safe and healthy. The father teaches him that they are the few morally correct people still left on Earth, as he wishes to teach his son as much as he can, before the father’s time runs out. The boy is seen as a God-like figure to his father as he is a beacon of light in a world full of darkness, the hope of the future, due to his correct moralities, as this reflects onto the father in various situations through the novel. It is quite notable that though the father plays an influential figure for the boy to look up to, the boy also is able to praise teachings upon his father to restore faith in himself. The bond between the father and son is one of the learning, as the father finds himself learning from his son. To start with the case of the son teaching his father, the two spot a young old man ahead of them on the road, to which the young boy insists on helping him, going against his father’s wishes. The first encountering with the old man between the two starts when the son bends down the sitting old man in the road,......

Silk and Seduction

...lingerie that suggests and arouses before it is even worn. Since the earliest days of the famous Silk Road trade route that connected China’s silk manufacturers with the rest of the world, everyone has wanted silk. It is light. It is warm. It is strong. But we scarcely care about those sensible concerns. It is so very, very beautiful. And we want it. The powerful pull that silk has for us — both as itself and as a symbol of a more luxurious and glamorous world — plays a central role in Kate Chopin’s famous story, “A Pair of Silk Stockings.” Chopin’s story follows “little Mrs. Sommers,” a wife and mother on a very tight budget, as she decides what to do with her unexpected $15 windfall. She begins, as I suspect most mothers with budget constraints would, with very practical plans: A dollar or two should be added to the price usually paid for Janie's shoes, which would insure their lasting an appreciable time longer than they usually did. She would buy so and so many yards of percale for new shirt waists for the boys and Janie and Mag.… And still there would be left enough for new stockings — two pairs apiece — and what darning that would save for a while! She would get caps for the boys and sailor-hats for the girls. As little Mrs. Sommers makes her plans and gathers her strength to face the crowds at the department store, her ungloved hand rests, for a just moment, on a pair of silk stockings. And like the real and fictional shoppers detailed by Virginia Postrel in The......

Shadow of the Silk Road

...Shadow of the Silk Road records Colin Thubron’s journey along the greatest land route on earth. He passes through China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Iran and Turkey and describes the history, cultures and people along the way. The Silk Road was described as a huge network of arteries splitting and converging across the breadth of Asia. To travel it is to trace the passage not only of trade and armies but also of ideas, religions and inventions. Shadow of the Silk Road encounters Islamic countries in many forms. Overall it explains changes in China that transformed since the Cultural Revolution. Throughout this book, Thubron discovers and identifies the transformation of history that transpired. He begins to reminisce and expresses drastic cultural changes that occurred throughout his life experience and throughout his journey on the Silk Road. Thubron portrays his journey to be momentous, but yet anonymous. He states, "Sometimes a journey arises out of hope and instinct, the heady conviction, as you finger travels along the map". (p. 2) Thubron witnessed the turmoil of a society racing to catch up with the future. At the beginning of my reading, I wondered if Thubron was associating his journey to the Cultural Revolution as pathway to his purpose. "During the Cultural Revolution I was struggled badly" (p. 56) It seems as if he felt the need to face the past and think of what was needed for the future. "After the Cultural Revolution, anything is happy."......

On the Road

...On the Road The main theme of the book and its common thread is the journey, seen as an element that breaks the monotony of life and brings the individual to deal with ever new realities, always looking for a new form of existence that could avert the danger of "boredom ". The journey takes on the function of true teacher of life for all the characters. It is not only meant as the material form of physical movement but also as a "virtual" journey through the use of drugs and abandonment in pleasures. All this, however, is not presented as a process of decay, but as a quest for a primitive instinct of human creativity and innocence now lost and suppressed by mod-ern conformism. The journey told in the book, however, is not just a figment of the writer: On the road, in fact, col-lects real travel experiences that the writer has made in over seven years with his friend and teacher of life Neil Cassidy (Dean Moriarty in the book). The novel, in fact, was written on a “scroll” by the writer within three weeks revising its travel notes, under the effect of Benzedrine. The trip, however, is not the only theme in the book. The other themes, in fact, are: the promotion of art in all its forms as a tool to uncover the truth, the search of love and the importance of friendship. As frame the entire novel, then, there is the per-ennial tension between the big cities and small towns, between life without brakes and inhibitions and tranquility of the family, between traveling and......
