According to the Sumerian King’s List , Ur dominated Southern Mesopotamia three times, which owes to the name ‘The Third Dynasty of Ur’. The Third dynasty stretched from c.2112 - c.2004. Shar-kali-sharri was the last ruler before the decline of the Akkadian period brought by the Gutian invaders. After about 40 years after the demise of the Akkadian Empire, Ur-Namma established this empire centered in Ur. This period was one of restoration as a reaction against the previous rule of the Akkadians. It is also sometimes known as the ‘Sumerian renaissance’ as the writing was still Sumerian and there were notable advances in culture. “This period stabilized the region of Mesopotamia and allowed for development of art, literature, science, agricultural
The success for both Imperial Rome and Han China is directly related to powerful leadership and a strong military presence. The Republic of Rome was characterized by aristocratic rule in the Roman state, and Imperial Rome could also be considered a military dictatorship.1 The Senate was a group that prioritized the votes of the most privileged individuals and nobility of Imperial Roman society – wealthy males.2 With a dominating leadership there was also a strong military presence, which contributed greatly to the expansion of Rome across Italy and the Mediterranean.3 The structure of the Roman state encouraged war, and the leaders and military forces were greedy and acted aggressively for a larger empire.4 The amount of expansion started slowly and then gained momentum, and was primarily achieved through the use of military forces.
In When the Emperor Was Divine by Julie Otsuka, each of the characters – the mother, the daughter, the son, and the father - change because of their time spent in the Japanese-American internment camps. These characters change in not only physical ways, but they also undergo psychic and emotional changes as a result of staying in the camps. These changes weaken their resolve for living and cause the quality of their lives to decline; some of these changes will affect their lives forever. Their reclassification into the internment camps stays with the family long after they are released from the camps.
The Han dynasty and the Roman Empire were both powerful empires during their era. However, the ways they obtained their power varied greatly because they used different methods that involved their political structures, which revolved around their centralized governments. The Han dynasty and the Roman Empire acquired very unique techniques that allowed them to control social and political. For example, the Han dynasty adopted a religion known as Confucianism, which monitored everything in the lives of the Chinese. Contrary, the Roman Empire established a monarchy but allowed its residents more freedom as compared to the Han. Nevertheless, the two empires were similar in political structures in that the power was depended on the wealthy that were in authority, the peasants struggled with their lives because of concerning issues such as food supply. The empires were able to create and preserve a peaceful and sustainable lives for a long time, unlike the past empires. Social distribution were under the control of the wealthiest and they could effortlessly impact community viewpoints and interactions among the residents. These two empires existed during the Classical Period had comparable and various social, political, religions, as well as economical values and practices.

Physical control is the most painful and inhumane way to control the people. According to the film, the white dog has been abused by its own white master since it was a puppy.

Whenever it sees a black people, the fear will come to its mind. And thus it will attack and kill the black people. The image of blacks has been a hateful threat and the painful memory to the white dog. If it doesn’t attack or kill him/her, he/she will attack and abuse it.
Investigating the Factors that Led to a Roman Emperor Being Worshipped as a God
Between Augustus in AD 14 and Constantine in AD 337, 36 out of the 60
emperors were officially deified. Hopkins believes that kings
of all eras associate themselves with divine beings in order to secure
and legitimise their position in power; likewise, subjects of a nation
use divine association to justify the absolute rule of an obscured
emperor. Both politics and religion before and after death contribute
to an emperor being worshipped as a god, but factors and traditions
alter with the changing political system.
Whilst the emperor is alive there are many issues that add to his
eventual deification; none more important that the cult of the living
emperor. The eastern provinces of the Roman Empire had long been
worshipping their rulers as gods and this created a politically
awkward situation within Rome. While the east bestowed many divine
honours on Roman emperors, the elites within the city did not condone
any divine worship of a mortal.
We can all feel stagnated, and go into a state of doldrums inactivity. We throw away the things that matter, so much sometimes that we lose our compassion and we become impervious to emotions. Can someone be so stagnated, that you can take the life of a helpless animal and still feel nothing? Could one take the life of a boy’s dog and show no feelings towards neither of them? The short story from 2008 called “Stolpestad” was written by William Lychack, an American author with a talent for short stories, and in this one he writes about a man who is called out to put down the dog of a nine-year-old boy. The protagonist is a police officer; he is a husband and father of two. Later on the day he was sent out to kill the dog, the little boy and his father came to his door, the father tells the police officer that the dog had survived the police officer´s attempt to kill it, and so they were forced to call someone else to get it done. The story touches upon several themes and morals that we all see in our everyday life, although it might seem odd, it is fairly relatable to the everyday person. The short story looks at the feeling of stagnation, a feeling that most of us is all too familiar with. The setting of the story is introduced really well, as the story lists the places of Stolpestad`s life up; the liquor stores, Laundromats, the police, fire and gas stations, as well as the coffee shops.
People are beginning to take dogs for granted. They feel that it is just an animal with no feelings and don’t consider what kind of role a dog really ...
Recently I read one of the Hans Christian Anderson's short stories, The Emperor's New Clothes. This Danish writer in his story made such a good picture of foolish kings and governors that now-a-days are much more before.
In the movie, Marley & Me, the director depicted love in a different way. He depicted it between a man and a dog. The main character, Owen Wilson, had a strong bond with his dog. Own Wilson developed a strong love bond that was never broken. As the saying goes, a dog is a man’s best-friend. The main character got married and was able to keep his best-friend/Marley. They were all able to create wonderful and memorable memories. The love that he had for his pet, Marley, was so strong because of what they had went through and how Marley was always protecting and sticking up him when he was younger.

The way the director depicted the last scene was so emotional. The audience and character felt the same pain an...
