Romulus and Remus were twins, their father Numitor once shared a kingdom with his brother, Amulius. Amulius stole the kingdom from Numitor and forced his only daughter to become a vestal virgin leaving no chance for an heir to challenge the throne. Soon after he found out Numitor’s daughter was with child, he ordered that the infant children be set off on the river. The infant twins traveled down the river until stopping on level ground, protected by a series of miracles. They were found protected, fed and raised by a mother wolf. Until found by Faustus, they were named Romulus and Remus. Once they reached adulthood they went to the kingdom ruled by Amulius, killed Amulius and restored power to Numitor. Romulus and Remus went to build a city on the land in which they were raised. In a disagreement of what shape the city should take Remus was killed leaving Romulus to be the sole leader. Having
The origins of my first name can be traced all the way back to ancient times in the Old Testament. Jacob is a translated English version of a Hebrew name, Ya'aqov. In the Old Testament Jacob is the son of Isaac and Rebecca and the father of the twelve tribes of Israel. Additionally, these tribes are traditional divisions of the ancient Jewish people. Later on in England, Jacob was used as a Jewish name until the Protestant Reformation, making it a general Christian name. My mother most likely decided my first name because she has much faith
The case of the Lindberg baby was a national kidnapping case that involved all components of the criminal justice system. It was about a famous Aviator names Charles Lindbergh, whose 20 month old baby was kidnapped from his mansion near Hopewell, New Jersey on the night of March 1, 1932. With the help of the three criminal justice systems (the police, courts, and corrections) the guilty party was able to be identified and appropriately sentenced by the American criminal justice system for his wrong doing. In the following paragraphs the actual Lindberg case will not be discussed, but rather each of the components of the American criminal justice system and their role in this case will be looked at.
The documentary Babies by Thomas Balmès is a film that takes place in four very different locations around the world. The documentary follows four babies and their families from when they are first born as they grow up and are able to walk. We watch Ponijao grow up in Namibia, Bayar grow up in Mongolia, Hattie grow up in San Francisco, and Mari grow up in Tokyo. Because the babies are from such different places, the documentary allows us to see what it is like growing up in cultures that we are currently unfamiliar with. The film opens up your eyes to the various forms of living in other areas around the world. In this paper, I will discuss the universal themes I noticed, my personal reflection of the film, the various
Joseph was born into a family of conflict. Joseph was Jacob’s eleventh son. Joseph was born to Jacob’s second wife, Rachel. Jacob had a total of four wives, the first two were sisters, Leah and Rachel. The second two; Bilhah and Zilpah, were slaves, given to Jacob by their wives to produce more children when they could not. Jacob was partial to Joseph because he was the oldest child of his most loved wife and this caused him to be thought of poorly by his brothers.
With an close examination between the two stories ‘Lamb to the Slaughter’, by Roald Dahl, and ‘Desiree’s Baby’, by Kate Chopin, there will be close similarities about a once loving wife toward her husband and a once loving husband towards his wife, now with the husband showing no more interests towards the wife, leaving her in an emotional distress, causing her to act out in a very hollow manner.
In the two stories “Desiree’s Baby” and “Lamb Of The Slaughter” the author portrays a selfsame story that shows a wife and a husband who adored one another, but doesn't stay like that transiently. Both story have complications and explication. The theme of the story is love is something you don’t take for granted it takes a strong emotional couple to keep stable

Eric is a 2-year old boy who attends an Ontario Early Year’s Centre on a regular basis. His vocabulary of about 25 words, which is not clear, has raised some concerns for his mother. He relies on pointing and gestures to communicate and has temper tantrums when misunderstood. Developmental factors that may have affected Eric’s development include his father being unemployed during the pregnancy, his mother going back to work early, parents being under intense stress throughout the pregnancy and after and his mother being pregnant again with his sister. Compared to his 11-month old sister who is said to be saying a few words and exclamations he appears to have a developmental delay.
Names are significant, timeless, and important parts of life, they are included in every culture and have powerful and unique meaning to the people who bear the name, the society that has created these names and God. Names are given to people based on various things such as religion, tradition, and personal connections. Most biblical names contain prophetic significance or reflect a person’s faith and gratitude towards God. Genesis 17:5 says “No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.” God changed Abram’s name to Abraham. In Genesis 17:1, God is named “El Shaddai” which means All-Sufficient One or Lord God Almighty.
The story told in Genesis 32:22–32 is an important turning point in the life of Jacob, coming right before he faces his brother, Esau, for the first time in many years. He experiences what it is like to wrestle with God and fully surrender his life to Him. He goes through this change, not only in name but also in character. The purpose of this account then, is to document Jacob’s unique encounter with the Lord and what comes from it.
There are thousands of stories in the Bible, but one stands out in particular; the story of Joseph. The Hebrew meaning of the name Joseph is “may Jehovah add, give increase.”1 Through the life of Joseph we see God add meaning and purpose to his life, just as God adds meaning and purpose to all our lives. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”2 Joseph obediently followed God’s plans through trials and tribulations whereas many other figures in the Old Testament faltered in their faith. Joseph, son of Jacob, is the single most important human being in the Old Testament because of his impeccable faith to the one true God and his story of forgiveness that set the stage for God’s chosen people.
Another brother story in the Bible is that of Esau and Jacob. The prophecy of these brothers was that the younger would rule the elder. Esau was a hairy man that was skillful in the hunter – gatherer ways and Jacob was somewhat of a “mamas boy”. One day while their father Isaac was dying he told Esau that he would bless him. Jacob then deceitfully went into the place of his father and was blessed as if he was Esau. When Esau returned he was very upset and was going to kill his brother. Jacob fled and was out of touch with his brother for a long time. Then Jacob sent word to meet his brother again and heard that Esau followed by 400 men were coming to him. Afraid and distressed about what Esau might do, Jacob had a dream in which he wrestled with God and was there blessed. With the new name of Israel he met his brother Esau and gave him many gifts. Esau came to his bother in open arms not needing any gifts because the only gift he wanted was to see his brother. Again united Esau and Israel showed that being brothers was more important than any childhood feud.
I used to think that dolls were nothing except perfect little pieces of glass. I didn’t really care for me as much as my mother did, but soon enough...every look, every word, every sound started to run my life.
