The people of the ancient world had many of the same reasons for going to war as the people in the 1860’s, as well as several different reasons. Both groups went to war over slaves and slavery. The ancients went to war to get prisoners to become slaves, while the Americans in the 1860’s went to war to either keep or abolish slavery. Pride was also a motivation for going to war in both cases. The Egyptians, for example, went to war to show that they were strong and shouldn’t be messed with, to send a message to their enemies. The Confederates went to war to show that they were steadfast and determined and that the North shouldn’t take away their slaves just because the North didn’t need any. Rebellions also started wars for both groups, but with different motivations. For instance, the Romans were known to crush their rebellious subjects, while the Union just wanted to keep the country together. Finally, power was a major subject that both groups of people fought over. The ancients fought over it constantly to determine who was in control while the Americans fought to just keep everyone in check so no one became too powerful. In terms of differences, the ancients fought over land to gain control of vast empires with plenty of resources, such as the conquests of Sargon. The ancients also fought to acquire wealth, such as the Egyptians conquest of Nubia for the gold. Finally, the ancients fought over religion constantly, such as when the Jews in Canaan launched a

Happiness Throughout Life
In this day and age jobs can take up a big portion of your life. If you are unhappy at your job, you will be unhappy a large part of your life. Thats why I would rather have a satisfying job over a high paying job because, I want to be happy in life, you can’t buy happiness, and money causes problems.
Everyone goal in life should be to be happy. When my grandfather graduated high school he got a job at a recreation park in Carrollton, he loved playing sports in
Age discrimination needs to be illegal in our country. It costs good people their jobs and way of life. Many have been taken out of jobs they have been in for 7 years just because they have gotten to a certain age. Discriminating against age will only cause more problems and money for business; people are out ranged and are letting out their angers in court. This issue has also been linked to families losing their homes because they can’t find a job to pay the bills. The simple fact is that
Age Discrimination in the Workplace
Discrimination in the workplace has been present and evident from the beginning of time. Whether it come in the form of harassment based on religion, sex, nationality or unfounded reasons for job termination, various groups of people have faced discrimination in one form or another at some point in time in their working lives.

Throughout this essay I will be looking at two common themes between the short stories we have read. I will be looking at control as my first choice, and explain how this is portrayed throughout. My second choice is mental health, and how both narrators seem to suffer from a mental illness, how they think and feel towards the people around them and also the people within their lives that have a detrimental effect on them.
Control throughout the yellow wallpaper is very evident from the start

Throughout a Lifetime
An individual’s perspective on life changes throughout a lifetime, on this roller coaster we call life, experiences, maturity, and growing up is the cause of the way we view and handle different situations.

million in greenbacks during the Civil War. These paper notes were not backed by specie (gold or silver) and maintained value only through trust in the government.
After the war the debtor elements, desiring inflation, wanted the greenbacks to remain in circulation and for new notes to be issued. Conservative forces, abhorring inflation, opposed these schemes and wanted all paper currency to be backed by gold.
Under the Funding Act of 1866, greenbacks in circulation were gradually reduced to

6 In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews[a] among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. 2 So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. 3 Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be
