Gender Roles in Classical Greece, Rome, India and China
The Classical Era was home to several civilizations; Greece, Rome, China and India, each with its own unique religion, philosophy, social order and gender roles. These Classical societies laid the foundation for future civilizations and in some cases their influence is still felt today. Women in this era were not equal to their male counterparts; however each Classical civilization had its own ideas about gender roles and the ways in which families should be developed.
Women in Classical Greece played into society in their gender roles and the stability of society. Wives of the artisan class were to care for all things within their homes including managing the family budget, cooking and cleaning. Greece holds a sharp contrast to Roman, Chinese and Indian women in that the upper class elite women had the ability to become educated. Often families with wealth sent their daughters to get a proper formal education, while women in agricultural areas wove wool and took care of all matters of the home.
As stated in “Aristotle: On a Good Wife” (Aristotle, The Politics & Economics of Aristotle), Aristotle describes the ways in which men and women of the Greek Classical Era should behave. Men in the family unit were to rule over their wives like a “divine” law. They also had to take great care in the way in which they shaped their wives, always in a discreet and mannerly way. Child rearing was the responsibility of both parents, as Aristotle believed children needed positive role models as a foundation for children to live by. This creates social stability as parents are trying to live the good and virtuous live and be positive role models for their children. It is the parent’s right to chose the partner of their children as stated in “Ancient History Sourcebook: Xenon: on Men and Women from Oikonomikos” (Aristotle,…...

...Screen Verdict: DRAW Camera: Overlooking the part where Tim Cook claimed that the iPhone 5 camera would make children look happier, the new camera is more than respectable, and at 8MP is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S3. While tests showed both were capable 8MP shooters, the iPhone 5 performed better in low light conditions. Camera Verdict: iPhone 5 better in low-light conditions Design: The iPhone 5 is the thinnest smartphone in the world, and of course is smaller, thinner and lighter than the Samsung Galaxy S3. There’s still the glass and aluminum pairing for the iPhone 5, and the shiny trim is now tinted. It’s just more quality than the S3 to the eyes. The scion of any tech giant shouldn’t look like it came from a dime store. Design Verdict: iPhone 5 has the look Power: Theoretically the Samsung Galaxy S31.4GHz Exynos chip should trounce the A6 processor in the iPhone 5. It seems after some benchmark tests, though, that the dual-core A6 chip is faster compared to S3 on ICS, and slightly behind against S3 on Jelly Bean. We need a few more results before confirming this, but the pair are the fastest smartphones out there right now. Power Verdict: Draw Connectivity: The new dock on the iPhone 5 means that to keep all your old Apple accessories with you you’ll need to buy that $30 adapter. However, you have a slimmer phone now. There’s still no NFC, removable battery or expandable memory though. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has microSD support and HML......

Elements of a Civ

...this civilization had nothing to do with the interactions of the civilizations, but with invasions by territories. The first invasion was by the king of Akkad. This king ruled for one hundred twenty years until their empire fell. The Sumerians started to thrive once again until the Amorites took control and seized the land into what was known as Babylon. Societies today strive on the elements that created these strong foundations that have been used many years ago. The elements that we see from previous societies are most likely seen today. For instance, we see calendars today in our world because of the Sumerians. They were the very first civilizations to ever make a calendar. Cuneiform is also an element of the Sumerians that we see today because Cuneiform were symbols and characters that eventually came out to be the words and language we speak today. Not to mention, we have laws in our world today because they have derived from the laws according to Hammurabi’s Code. This code was the first set of laws that governed a society and helped develop into ours over many ages. All developments use these five key elements to help their society to survive and live on through the years. Without these elements, we struggle to even keep a hold of a civilization. These aspects are what is needed in a civilization to thrive....

He said Ithaca at last, and Telemachus said, who did the sailors say they are. He decided he would tell Telemachus the whole store. He told Telemachus that Phaeacians brought him here, who were the sailors. Odysseus said they sailed him across the sea and left him off in Ithaca, where they gave him gifts of bronze and hoards of gold and robes. Odysseus said that all these gifts are stored in a cave, thanks to the god’s help. He asks Telemachus to give him the numbers, gauges and strengths of there suitors so he can be prepared to fight them, and will know if just the two of them can take them on there selves or if they will need extra help. Telemachus is stunned at the fact that his father thinks just the two of them can fight off these suitors. Telemachus tells his father to count up the suitors, finding that 52 of them are from Dulichion, 6 servants in their troop, 24 from Zacynthus, 20 Achaeans, and the 12 best lords of Ithaca itself. Telemachus is trying to tell his father that he doesn’t think they can take all these men by them selves, and thinks they should have some extras to help. He tells Telemachus that we can’t hold of for long, and when Athena, the queen of tactics, tells odysseus it’s time then Telemachus is to get the weapons ready that are kept in the hall, and stowe them away so the suitors can’t find them.......

...Ghadere Salah PHI-101-013 Rationalism VS Empiricism They say : Hume says knowledge comes from the way one’s mind perceived the physical world. 1.Hume claimed that people perceive the world in two ways – through impressions which are one’s senses and through ideas which are one’s thoughts. 2.Hume claimed that there was no such thing as an innate idea, which is an idea present in the human mind that was not created through some sort of experience. 3.Hume asserted that nothing remains the same, but that one’s mind perceives what is similar as being the same if change occurs gradually rather than abruptly. We say/I say: Descartes says knowledge lies in the mind not the senses. 1.Descartes claims that the way we perceive things comes from thinking. 2.Descartes claimed that we often sense things that don’t physically exist in the external world. 3.Descartes claimed if any component of something was in the very least questionable, then any conclusion drawn from it would be at the most questionable. 4.Descartes reasoned that our senses often misinterpret the physical world. 5.Descartes claimed while it’s possible to not sense things, it’s impossible not to think. Conclusion: Descartes wrote, “I find here that thought is an attribute that belongs to me; it alone cannot be separated from me”. While it’s possible to not sense things, it’s impossible not to think. Descartes claims that he is just “a thing which thinks”. His proof is that he can question his own......

Proved that when the Jewish people emigrated to the US, that the problems they ran away from were replaced by an equally confrontational frontier. David Foley Professor Geller Heritage: Civilization and the Jews 4/17/14 The Jewish States of America Have you ever found yourself wondering how, or why the Jewish people ended up in the US? When the topic of the Jewish religion comes about we think about one place normally. Israel is said to be the original holder of the world’s Jewish population in biblical times. Now times have changed and the worlds Jew’s have found themselves spread to every corner of our planet with amassing numbers and counting. This growth and emigration of the Jews has been caused by multiple reasons that have both stunted and also accelerated the prospering of this group of people. The biggest of all these emigrations occurred during the 19th and 20th centuries from Europe to the United States of America. This massive movement was caused by many factors but the choice to move to the U.S. was not the best idea. Even though the Jews tried to escape harsh conditions in Europe through emigration, they were met with the same level of opposition in the U.S. The United States hasn’t always had an outstanding population of the Jewish people.

...absolute truth. Speeches were also a very powerful way for their messages to be heard. Posters are another form of propaganda. HE gave this speech to describe a military disaster and warn od a possible invasion attempt by nazi Germany. He also had to prepare his audience for France’s falling out of the war without releasing the French republic to do so. The speech as an update for parliament on how the warfront is and England’s armed forces. The people needed to know what was happening and they needed an update. The speech was effective for people at that time. The overall purpose was to open up a northern and western front with the ultimate goal of not only freeing nazi occupied western Europe but ultimately to unseat Hitler and end world war II in Europe. What stood out to me was how they all trained hard for this moment. Some even waited four years and would be seeing action for the very first time. When General Eisenhower gave the signal to go it was everything they were waiting for. I think the main point of these pictures is to see how cruelly the internees were being treated and what awful conditions they endured daily. These pictures depict people who are going through a lot. Their super skinny and bony and you can tell their health is in poor condition. I think that’s why the US didn’t want any pictures. They didn’t want anyone seeing the conditions or anything because of how harsh and unbearable they can be. One of the things that stood out to me was......

Began to venture out into the Western world to claim new lands and colonize. The Europeans exploring the west were mainly the Spanish, Portuguese, English and the French.

It also brought slavery to the people, harsh working conditions, religion and exploiting them in any possible way. As for the Age of Exploration referred to the royal crowns back home sending out conquistadors and travelers to discover new lands, routes, trading posts, resources and map out the world. * Upon arriving to the new world, the Europeans began to kill off any resistance to their campaign. Attacked the natives, destroyed their lands, began to farm for natural resources, and enslaved some of the indigenous people. * Europeans believed by law and their given rights that their Gods had permitted them to take over and exploit any new cultures they encountered. * The Spanish Reconquista of 1492 made it so that it justified Christianity by exiling all of the Jews and Muslims. Therefore Christianity had to be spread, making it “alright” to overpower others and take over. * Christopher Columbus is sent out in 1492 to the Americas.

...My aunt to me the greatest person in this world, one of a kind and one in a million Sometimes I know the words to say, Give thanks for all you've done, But then they fly up and away, As quickly as they come, She has the biggest heart with the most caring touch, which she shares with so many of us. How could I possibly thank you enough, The one who makes me whole, The one to whom I owe my life, The forming of my soul, Her soul is made of pure love, yet she's worth way more than gold, The one who tucked me in at night, The one who stopped my crying, The one who is an expert At knowing when I am lying, In my eyes, she will always be, the most beautiful person to walk the earth. The one who makes such sacrifices, To always put me first, Who lets me test my broken wings No matter how much it hurts, To me she's the smartest woman I know, and it truly does show. For accepting me as I changed Accepting all my flaws, Not loving ‘cause you had to, But loving just because, There is no one that compares to her, no one that even comes close, For never giving up on me, Even when your nerves had reached the end, For always being proud of me, For being my best friend, On a high pedestal is where I hold her, for I admire her so much more than she knows. Having her apart of my life is the greatest gift of all, being in her presence is god's blessing to me. Looking deep inside of her, I see that strong, wise woman I hope to become, So thank you Auntie for everything, And most of all thank......

...think that was a very advanced yet simple idea of the time. On the topic of security I think it is very impressive on how the Romans were able to keep their empire safe by taking many measures of making walls and setting boundaries on not further conquering any more land. I don’t think the empire could have become what it was without conquering all of the land they did and getting the different influences from other cultures. They were willing to change some techniques to perfect their architectural skill which is something many civilizations do not do. In my eyes combining all of these ideas and abilities made the Romans the very best and influential civilization ever. They had many ideas and had many accomplishments that made our world what it is today, and I think that movie captured these things perfectly. Julio-Claudian Rule The empire under Julio-Claudian rule was an empire of great power but power displaced in the most unlikely of places. I personally think it was a time of corruption but with the corruption came great things and accomplishments because everyone was trying to outdo the others. I wouldn’t personally call this time a stain or a high time in the Roman era. Once again as previously stated I think many good things did come from this time for the idea that everyone was trying to one up another. Everyone was trying to leave their mark in history....

Amy was an equestrian, and that meant early mornings and late nights were the inevitable. Today was the first morning of the APHA World show in Fort-worth, Texas. Amy Smith never thought that she would compete on the American Paint Horse Circuit due to the level of difficulty but she also knew these were the steps she had to take to be a World Champion. This year was different for Amy and Cowboy, It was their last year of Youth 14-18 before she went on to be a Amateur. Amy knew that after this she could no longer compete with cowboy because Amateur level was too competitive. All the handwork was paying off as her and Cowboy moved to the top of the list in points on the circuit. This morning she knew she had to do good to keep up the points and qualify for the High Point.
