- Da Vinci Code Rough Draft The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown is a highly criticized novel due to it containing faulty historical claims, the conflict between the superior man and the sacred feminine and several controversial themes. Throughout the novel Brown employs the use of many twisted pieces of information which caused much controversy and conflict. In many instances Brown uses exaggerated statistics in order to get an emotional response from the reader. “An example of [this] is his assertion that the church burned 5 million women at the stake during the witch-hunts of the later Middle Ages.”(Burrows) This is obviously an over exaggeration because a mass murder such as this would have dep...   [tags: The Da Vinci Code, Mary Magdalene, Dan Brown]

Draft Busts : An NFL Team's worst nightmare

- When the National Football League first decided to draft college players in 1936, it was always a possibility that a player would not meet the expectations that the team had set for the draftee.

Bigger draft busts tend to happen in the first couple of rounds of the nine round draft because the bar is set much higher for these top picks than it is for the latter picks. These players often sign big contracts and don’t pan out as players, getting cut from the team or not playing much time on the field....   [tags: National Football League, College Players]

Not until World War I did the United States rely primarily upon conscription.
