“I can’t stand squealers! Hit that guy!” (Albert Anastasia). By the time Albert Anastasia had become known by many people and had taken over Murder Inc., he saw on the television a young Brooklyn salesman by the name of Arnold Schuster and how he bragged about seeing bank robber Willie Sutton and how he was a part of Sutton going to jail. Later, Anastasia had him killed by his men which violated a principal rule: We only kill each other. Outsiders and the general public- Were not to be killed unless the organization was threatened. He killed Schuster because of two reasons, one of them being that Lucky Luciano and Frank Costello were not there to hold him back, and because his killing started to become so promiscuous that he didn’t care anymore,
Narimatsu 9 “There’s the possibility of balance, Unbearable burdens that the world somehow does bear with a certain grace […] I am the un-missionary, as Adah would say, beginning each day on my knees, asking to be converted. If I could reach backward somehow to give Father just one
Born in the Renaissance era as al - Hassan ibn Muhammad al - Wazzam, Leo Africanus came from Granada, a city found at the bottom of the mountains in Andalusia, Spain. Even though he was not technically raised here, this is the place that he always acknowledged and claimed to be his true city. His name literally means "the son of Muhammad - the weigh master. Shortly after his birth, this city was conquered by the Catholics, Isabella and Ferdinand. The once diverse city, where Muslims, Jews, Christians, etc coexisted, became divided. The Kings apparently decided, around 1492, that they would force the people (Muslims specifically according to the YouTube video) to convert to Catholicism; if not they would have to leave Granada. Leo's family chose
Many current day medical practices can be traced back to the core concepts of four Roman physicians. Although the Romans were less sophisticated, they discovered and formulated several techniques that are still being used today such as neurostimulation, the cleansing of wounds, the workings of arteries and veins, and pregnancy/childbirth. Roman medicine was primarily influenced by the works of Aulus Cornelius Celsus, Scribonius Largus, Galen of Pergamon, and Soranus of Ephesus.
Part Two: A When learning about the history of the world, we can not ignore the fact that Africa plays a significant role. Many believe that Africa is the birth place of all races, and although that is true, the history and cultures of Africa and its natives are misunderstood among Americans. People do not take the time to expand their knowledge about Africa, yet they create their own perceptions of the continent based upon the image that America created. America creates this stereotype that Africa is inferior to the other continents by picturing them as savage like individuals who live an insufficient life. To truly understand Africa, you must understand these two important elements: the demographics of Africa and the true history of Africa
William Kamkwamba To be a hero does not mean flying around the city saving people from burning buildings. According to The Merriam Webster Dictionary a hero simply means “a person admired for achievements and noble qualities”. In order achieve greatness in something you must work for it. If Michael Jordan didn’t want to play basketball, he wouldn’t have put hours and hours of work into it or if William Kamkwamba didn't care about going to school, he probably wouldn’t have gone through all of that work to make a windmill. I believe William Kamkwamba is a hero to his family and Masitala Village. He is a hero because he overcame a huge challenge in an unexpected way.
Theodoric-Theodoric the Great, he often referred to Theodoric, he is king of the Ostrogoths, ruler of Italy, regent of the Visigoths and patricius of the Roman Empire.

William Kamkwamba was an ordinary kid until a famine struck his village. His family sold crops but since they don't have any crops to sell they didn't make any money. William was kicked out of school because he didn't pay. One day when William visited the library he saw a picture of a windmill and was dedicated to make it. Surprisingly he made a windmill out of junkyard scraps. It was able to power a few lightbulbs and a radio. What William did was extraordinary, but I have a question. If William was a girl would she still have made the windmill? Well, I don't think that she would of made the windmill because, women in Malawi mostly do housework not much work in the fields, also some Malawian fathers want their daughters to get married.
As Americans, we live in a society today that is controlled by the media, and we are sometimes blind-sided by it and what it informs us about other countries due to the fact that the media leaves a mass amount of information. Questions that will be challenged example, why is it so important to learn about other countries history when we don’t even know much of our own? Or why does the media have such an incredible impact on how we view other countries like Africa. Our school systems are set up to, limited to what needs to be taught, so that our generations coming up, will not be as uneducated also uninformed about what is going on in the world. Africa history is beautiful history and some may say that Africa is where all of our world history started.

Jean Patrick knew that running was going to be a major aspect of his life; unfortunately, he didn’t know that he would have to use running to save his life.

Abraham Ortelius born April 14th 1527 died July 4th 1598. In 1550 Abraham became interested in mapmaking which lead to him going into the business of making and selling his own maps in 1554. The collections of all his maps put together go by the name of an atlas which is a map of all the contenints in the world. Abraham really did leave his mark because he came up with the term atlas, because of his interest in mapping he had the theory which is now a fact that once apon a time all it aperd that all continents fit together. “He is known as the inventor of the atlas - a book bringing maps together in one format and with the same display” ( quoted by https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/beta/exhibit/eAISufJvjgUVJA ).
