Ancient Egypt or announcing the winners of the Olympics in ancient Greece. In the Middle Ages, pigeon post has grown rapidly as it became a favorable form of communication. However, pigeons are later used for military purposes, especially in the Franco-Prussian War which brewed from 1870-1871 and the World Wars.
Pigeons can fly for a thousand miles, while humans and horses cannot fly at all. Flying gives them an upper hand because they can see things from an elevated field of view. Also, pigeons are usually faster than horses so they can be an ancient equivalent to E-mail. Since pigeons can be ordered to fly to one place and another, they are able to cross the borders and send mail and parcels to other people living in other parts of the world, therefore spreading out. Also, if a country had received a mail sent via pigeon post but does not have that system, they might persuade the government to have that system, and if they did, it will spread out even more.

A significant physical geological factor that contributed to the rise of the great early human society of Egypt over 7000 years ago was the importance of the Nile River. None of the achievements of the remarkable ancient Egyptian civilizations would have been possible without the Nile. (ushistory, n.d.) It's population was contained, yet protected by a narrow 1,000 mile long stretch of highly fertile land. The Nile valley and the people that lived there were protected by geographical features. To the east and the west of the Nile were impassable deserts. North and south were protected by rugged

Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known. It was mentioned in the Bible and was used in ancient Egypt not only as a beverage, but flavoring and medicine as well. Cinnamon is found in many parts of the world from India, China, Madagascar, and Brazil to the Caribbean. It was so highly treasured that it was considered more valuable than gold. The use of cinnamon dates back as long ago as 4,000 years. It has a broad range of historical uses in different cultures. Cinnamon has been used as a treatment of diarrhea, gas relief, bloating, regulating glucose, as an antibacterial and many more.

The Nile would flood, releasing a lot of fertile mud that would collect in it. These Egyptians were able to live in a lifeless desert due to this periodic flooding.

Simply being Roman citizens put Christians in precarious positions due to their strong adherence to the teachings of Scripture. Because of their convictions, they would avoid festivities such as wedding, or even invitations to dine at homes where meals were served with drink offerings and prayers to pagan gods. They rejected social events such as the gladiator games, or possibilities of income from employment that required tasks that compromised their beliefs.

As the passage continues, Pope criticizes how mankind’s vision differs based on the individual, citing how different societies view deities differently, “When the dull ox, why now he breaks the clod, Is now a victim, and now Egypt’s god…This hour a slave, the next a deity, Then say not man’s imperfect. Heaven in fault” (Pope, 1, 63-64, 68-69). In this passage, Pope makes a very apt comparison of how in some lands, an ox is but a mere tool, but in ancient Egypt, the ox was a revered godly figure; using this example to insinuate that that which one

One of the main responsibilities of a jail is to give the officers the correct “Police Correspondence” courses. This is because these courses give the officers the effective basic training that they need to do things such as; Writing of Memoranda, Police Reports, and Civilian Letters. What needs to be done first is make sure that there are NO errors. This means in spelling, punctuation, price, and grammar. These should be thoroughly, and constantly, edited. Another thing is conciseness; this means it should be brief or limited in words. Although, concision does not mean deleting words that count just to make

Kurt Lewin proposed a three stage theory of change commonly referred to as Unfreeze, Change, Freeze (or Refreeze).

But be aware that the theory has been criticised for being too simplistic.
A lot has changed since the theory was originally presented in 1947, but the Kurt Lewin model is still extremely relevant.
