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

The religions of ancient Egypt have their history rooted in creation myths. These myths were derived from deification of mortals who were great rulers. The ruler, who would become the Egyptian Christ like figure, was known as King Horus. King Horus came from the Southern part of Africa with a small army of invaders in his follow; these men that accompanied King Horus were known as the Blacksmiths because of their iron crafting skills.

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 Y. pestis is a causing agent to a number of diseases including bubonic, septicemic and pneumonic plagues.
Bubonic plague is said to have originated from the ancient Egypt due to the flooding of River Nile that forced rats to infest into the human population, according to archeological evidences.

Pythagoras also made important discoveries in music, astronomy and medicine. He accepted priesthood and performed the rites that were required in order to enter one of the temples in Egypt, known as Diospolis. He set up a brotherhood with some of his followers, who practiced his way of life and pursued his religious ideologies. He became one of the most distinguished teachers of religion in ancient Greece.

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. Shelley points out, “Tertullian even forbade a Christian to be a schoolteacher, because such teaching involved using textbooks that told the ancient stories of the gods and called for observing the religious festivals of the pagan

Heaven in fault” (Pope, 1, 63-64, 68-69).

Role of Sports in Society
A. Description of the issue
The role of sport in society has been debated for many decades. Sport is a part of society as both an educational fixture and an entertainment enterprise. Sport forms part of human and social development; it can contribute to social cohesion, tolerance and integration and is an effective channel for physical and socio-economic development. As a universal language, sport can be a powerful medium for social and economic change: it can be utilized to bridge cultural gaps, resolve conflict and educate people in ways that very few activities can. The goal of the Sports Council is to examine the proposition that sport can be a powerful agent

A team that is multi-cultural has the capability to bring individuals together with an extensive range of ideas and experiences. In the recent years, there has been a tendency of multi-cultural teams becoming very common. This is because cross border mobility has become much easier and the number of people travelling from one nation to another has grown significantly (Aswathppa, 2010).

What is Honor?
My understanding of the term honor.
Honor is defined as a source of credit or distinction, and is associated with reverence, dignity, reputation, good name and a good sense of what is morally correct. The key part to honor is having respect for others and for you; the two must act together because without both, there is nothing. I strongly believe that reputation is hard to gain and easily lost. Think about this, every day thousands of planes fly somewhere and there is never any news about a successful landing, but if any of those flights crash, it is all over the news.

I read the article Neglecting neglect: some thoughts about children who have lacked good input, and are ‘undrawn’ and ‘unenjoyed’. This article focuses on children that were emotionally neglected early on in their lives. The probability of these children having long-term effects of this neglect is very high if not noticed by professionals or someone who is willing to take the time to try and help them.
In one case, the child was left alone in the crib most of the time and not given much physical input from the people around her. This made it difficult for her to show emotions whether positive or negative. She was considered a good child because she never asked for any help or
