In his first paragraph, King establishes why he is in Birmingham, however, he is not clear, as he states, ". . . [he], along with several members of [his] staff, [are] [there] because [he] was invited [there]. [He] is here because [he] has organizational ties [there].". In other words, he was there because what he does brought him here, kind of like a job. In the second paragraph, he .....

Words: 968 / Pages: 4

.... fission of the uranium nucleus had recently been discovered. A long-time friend, Leo Szilard, and other physicists realized that uranium might be used for enormously devastating bombs.

This, and a second Einstein-Szilard letter of March 1940, joined efforts by other scientists to prod the United States government into preparing for nuclear warfare. Einstein played no other role in .....

.... was a very subjective film, while many people claim not to have understood it at all. Many interpretations have been made as to the real meaning of this scene, many incredibly different and most equally plausible. Despite their differences, however, all have one thing in common: an overwhelmingly optimistic vision for the future. A few example interpretations include alien intervention: an idea that alien technology has helped man progress to the ‘next level’ of consciousness; to an understanding beyond the physical realm. Others adopt the idea of the emergence of man as pure thought completely of his own accord. It is for this reason that the .....

Words: 591 / Pages: 3

.... to karate, they began to use these grappling and striking as well as animal forms with the things they had in hand, such as sugar cane knives and 3/4 staffs. Being slaves, they had to disguise the study of the art, and that is how the dance came into it. Their hands were manacled most of the time, so the art used a lot of standing on hands feet up, and some moves were directed to fighting mounted enemies.

.... is strongly evident through the artists contrasting use of colour, light, realism, technique perception and focal point/s.
