Early Life: William Still was born in Burlington County, New Jersey on October seventh in the year of 1821. His parents were both born into slavery and they had lived as slaves for quite some time. To protect himself and his family from any possible danger, Levin Steel changed his last name to Still.

Duke of Normandy, William the First: Conqueror or Bastard? William the Conqueror: a powerful man who was taking what was rightfully his, or an illegitimate son thirsty for power, only history can tell if his actions were an act of justice. This debate contains a lot of confusion between promises, traditions overlapping, the support of the people, and proven powerful enough to rule. After understanding the conflicts at the time, history has proven that William the Conqueror proved to have a legitimate claim to the throne, much more than his competition at the time. In order to understand history, we have to look back and see how we got to this point, starting with the set-up for this situation.

William smiled, reminded in that moment why he loved Mary; or at minimum, deeply regarded her. They met as freshmen at a Christian Coalition meeting. William had been attending the meeting as a representative from the campus Young Republicans. The visit was planned as part of an outreach effort to drum up support for a voter-registration drive. William was smitten, not by the spark that follows a love-at-first-sight dynamic, more by the dull glow that evolves through begrudging respect for shared values. Their relationship was framed by common beliefs: The Evangelical fire that burned white-hot in Mary, and William’s uninhibited passion for conservative principles of right-wing Republican politics were perfect bedfellows. Together, they evolved

William the Conquerer William I, also known as "William the Conqueror," or "William the Bastard," was born the illegitimate of Robert, Duke of Normandy, and Herleva, daughter of a wealthy Falasian in about 1027 A.D. When he was just seven years of age he became the Duke of Normandy, which put him in a vulnerable position as far as his physical well being was concerned, for several of his relatives felt that they should be duke rather than young William. He persevered, however, and became one of the most influential leaders of Medieval times with his Battle of Hastings and his glorious ascension to the English throne on Christmas Day, 1066. His twenty-one years as
William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy, is among the most influential of the early medieval figures. During William’s attempt to reinforce his claim to the English throne, he “changed the history of the world with his courage and power.” The Norman Invasion or the Norman Conquest refers to the crucial years between c. 1066 and 1086. This period is defined by its development and experimentation with existing cultural traditions. The Norman Conquest is regarded as not only an important British milestone but also a crucial milestone for the Western world. The years subsequent to the Norman Invasion are regarded as a great revolutionary period in England’s history; the invasion “was not only important within Normandy, but it also resonated throughout the rest of Europe” with implications stretching “as far as the Byzantine.” As the first Norman king of England, William the Conqueror is deemed a key figure in the foundation for modern English culture as shown through the advancements in law, language, and social customs. In the pages that follow, it will be argued that the Norman Conquest enhanced English culture into its most ingenious phase.
Ours is a caffeinated nation. We purchase more coffee than most other nations in the word – almost a third of the planet’s supply – and consume roughly one hundred billions cups of coffee per year (Clark 2007:7). Coffee is the second-most-traded physical commodity in the world, with four out of every five North American adults drinking the beverage on a regular basis (Clark 2007:7). Throughout history, all civilized societies have had places in which people could get together and socializes, share gossip, discuss ideas, or just unwind. These public gathering places are vital to a culture’s health, and they have always reflected the diverse character of their patronage: London has it boisterous pubs, Beijing its formal and proper teahouses, and Paris its relaxed style sidewalk cafes (Clark 2007:2). Currently, in North America, we have the cozy, indulgent coffeehouses as our social hub, and Tim Hortons is a company that has taken this kind of communal place, standardized it, branded it, and sold it to a large amount of devoted consumers (Clark 2007:12-13). Customers all over Canada and the United States have seized onto the chain and made it such an entrenched part of their lives. Tim Hortons has found a way to provide and promote feelings of social connections and safe refuge – two things that people desperately crave. Due to this fact, I decided to examine a local Tim Hortons coffee shop located at the intersection of Ellesmere Road and Neilson Road and provide a detailed
