Julius Caesar

In 60 BC, Caesar, Crassus and Pompey formed the First Triumvirate, a political alliance that dominated Roman politics for several years. Their attempts to amass power as Populares were opposed by the Optimates within the Roman Senate, among them Cato the Younger with the frequent support of Cicero. Caesar rose to become one of the most powerful politicians in the Roman Republic through a number of his accomplishments, notably his victories in the Gallic Wars, completed by 51 BC. During this time, Caesar became the first Roman general to cross both the English Channel and the Rhine River, when he built a bridge across the Rhine and crossed the Channel to invade Britain. Caesar's wars extended Rome's territory to Britain and past Gaul. These achievements granted him unmatched military power and threatened to eclipse the standing of Pompey, who had realigned himself with the Senate after the death of Crassus in 53 BC. With the Gallic Wars concluded, the Senate ordered Caesar to step down from his military command and return to Rome. Leaving his command in Gaul meant losing his immunity from being charged as a criminal for waging unsanctioned wars. As a result, Caesar found himself with no other options but to cross the Rubicon with the 13th Legion in 49 BC, leaving his province and illegally entering Roman Italy under arms.[5] This began Caesar's civil war, and his victory in the war by 45 BC put him in an unrivalled position of power and influence.

A Modest Proposal for the Parliament of Canada

This short satirical work proposes that backbenchers be removed, benches and all, from the Canadian House of Commons, in the interests of modernity and efficiency for both the backbenchers and the rest of the House of Commons. Read More: This short work proposes that backbenchers be removed, benches and all, from the Canadian House of Commons, in the interests of modernity and efficiency. A special “Backbencher’s Heaven,” can be set up not far from the Parliaments buildings. There, backbenchers could spend most of their time in up-to-date offices dealing with the voters in their ridings. At the same time, the rest of the Members of Parliament (the ones that really matter) could have the space to install and use current data collection and display systems (built into their desks), the better to debate bills with the facts at their fingertips. A giant leap in productivity is predicted.

Prisoner for peace

Every day was a lonely, dangerous fight for freedom. Suu could not move freely even in her own home. Aung San Suu Kyi was born in 1945 to a rich and important family in Burma (now Myanmar). Her father was killed when she was only two years old. But her young life was happy and comfortable. When she was fifteen, the family moved to India. Suu became very interested in her mother s political work there. She understood the power of politics from an early age. While studying in Oxford, Suu met Michael Aris, a handsome, young Englishman. Michael soon fell in love with Suu's Asian good looks and her bright intelligence. They married, and then traveled and worked in Asia for a few years together. Finally, they returned to England to live a simple, happy life with their two sons. But Suu could not forget her history, her family, and her people in Burma. She understood now that her father was killed during his fight for Burma's freedom. During the 1970s and 1980s, too, there were many problems in Burmese politics. As she read the newspapers, Suu remembered her father's courage. In 1988 Suu visited her sick mother in Burma. It was a very difficult time for the country because the army wanted to form a new government. Many people were afraid of the future. Thousands of people, young and old, came into the streets to make their opinions known. But the army wanted power-they did not want to listen. They were ready to fight. Later that year, the army killed thousands of ordinary people. Suu knew that she had to choose between her comfortable, happy life with her family in Oxford and a difficult and dangerous life in Burma. Her mother was dying. Suu decided that she must continue her father's good work. Suu understood a lot about international history and politics. She wanted to use the ideas of people like Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi.

Three Mistakes of My Life by Chetan Bhagat

Govind, a boy from Ahmedabad, dreams of owning a business. His friends, Ish and Omi, dream of cricket. To accommodate all their passions, the three entrepreneurs open a cricket shop. While Govind wants to make money and thinks big, Ish is all about nurturing Ali, a batsman with a rare gift. Omi knows his capabilities are limited and just wants to be with his friends. But nothing comes easy in a turbulent city. To realise their goals, they will have to face it all—religious politics, earthquakes, riots, unacceptable love and, above all, their own mistakes. Will they make it? Can an individual’s dreams overcome the nightmares offered by real life? Based on true events, this is another dark, witty tale about modern India from the bestselling author of Five Point Someone and One Night @ the Call Center—a tale in which the ethos and isolation of an entire generation are brought vividly to the fore.

lies_damned_lies_or_statistics

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." We contend that statistics are not a type of lie, but rather, when used carefully, are an alternative to lying. For this reason, we use "or" in the title of this book, where Twain/Disraeli used "and," to underline how we are thinking of statistics, correctly applied, as standing in opposition to lies and damned lies. But why use such a complicated method of telling the truth as statistics, rather than, say, telling a good story or painting a moving picture? The answer, we believe, is simply that there are many concrete, specific questions that humans have about the world which are best answered by carefully collecting some data and using a modest amount of mathematics and a fair bit of logic to analyze them. The thing about the Scientific Method is that it just seems to work. So why not learn how to use it? Learning better techniques of critical thinking seems particularly important at this moment of history when our politics in the United States (and elsewhere) are so divisive, and different parties cannot agree about the most basic facts. A lot of commentators from all parts of the political spectrum have speculated about the impact of so-called fake news on the outcomes of recent recent elections and other political debates. It is therefore the goal of this book to help you learn How to Tell the Truth with Statistics and, therefore, how to tell when others are telling the truth ... or are faking their "news."

The beauty d: Looking Great Has Never Been So Delicious

As a beauty nutritionist, helping people look and feel their best is what I do for a living. Most of my clients are women for whom looking great is a high priority. And I mean high priority! Whether it’s a bride-to-be who wants glowing skin on her big day, a television anchor who needs to appear polished in front of the cameras, or a model whose business is her looks, my clients must look terrific. I advise all kinds of people, from New York moms who maintain a high standard of attractiveness for their active lifestyle to those in business and politics who need to look stunning for their events and media coverage. Behind closed doors, I help my clients lose weight, counteract years of sun exposure, and resist the effects of aging—not with drastic surgery or expensive potions, but with everyday foods, you can find at your supermarket.
