Throughout history different words or things have been up and down. By going to the n-grams website, you can tell the differences or the comparisons. You can tell when it started and how it has done throughout history.
About two thousand years ago Christianity started in Judea, which is now present day Israel. Judea, at the time, was a busy city and farmland with many different cultural themes. Another oppression the Jewish people had on them, besides the different cultural themes, was the hatred of the Roman rule at the time. Rome had a polytheistic kind of cultural which was pagan to the Jew’s beliefs. To save their own life some were forced to confirm the change into the Roman beliefs. While others, still keeping the faith, became “religious zealots who formed pockets of guerilla resistance against Rome.” And some more others took themselves from the Roman empire into the wilderness of Judea to study the Jewish law and wait for the coming Messiah.
Christianity from the start of the 1500’s is different, though, from when it started in the time of Jesus’ birth. People have become more different. They have established new religions that they think is better and more coinciding with their life. At this time Catholicism was very popular, especially in England, where most people lived. A big horrific event that happened in 1517, changed England and their view of religious events differently; when Martin Luther nailed his “Ninety-Five Thesis” to the door of the Wittenberg Palace All Saints’ Church. This event signaled the beginning of the Protestant Reformation in Germany and Protestantism in general. There was a big spike in the 1500’s, probably because of the 95 Thesis. Throughout the rest of time its been up and down, but its never had a higher percentage than in the 1500’s.
In the year 1741 BC, Abraham began his long journey from Haran to Canaan. This was a journey which would change the history of the world and have a profound effect on the development of most religions. Throughout the years there has been a fascination of Jewish history. People have questioned “the miracle of the continual existence of the Jewish people”, despite the almost consistent world delight in their persecution and ridicule. Back before Christ was born, Christianity and Judaism had meant the same thing. Everywhere in the middle east, if you were a christian, than you were a Jew. They are the most similar of all religions. “They both believe in one God who is almighty, omniscient, omnipresent, eternal, and infinite.” Christianity and Judaism have basically the same ethical code, commonly known to day as the Judeo-Christian. There is a huge difference in between Christianity and Judaism though. They don’t believe in the same Jesus Christ. In my leanings, I find that Jesus Christ was a fulfillment to the coming prophecies of Christ. Now,with the Jews, they strongly disagree that Jesus was God or that His sacrifice was even necessary for the our sins. There were certain people from the New Testament that were Jews and changed once they reached or heard Jesus. Paul was a Jew and a strict adherent to Judaism. He encountered Jesus in a vision, Acts 9:1-9, and from then on became a big witness of Jesus and became an author for half of the New Testament. Paul knew what the difference was between Judaism and Christianity more than anyone else did. Paul’s message was, “I am not ashamed of the gospel (of Jesus Christ) because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew and second for the Gentile” Romans 1:16.
Nowadays everyone is obsessing over a car. Either they want one for their 16th birthday or they already have one that they love. Some people get a choice on the car they want and others just get the car that’s available to you. Two cars that have come a long way from what they started at are the Chevy and Volkswagen.
Volkswagen literally means “purple car”, and was created first in the 1930’s. People had no idea that the company of “Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH” would become one of Europe’s most popular company’s today. The Volkswagen Beetle is regarded as on of the most remarkable and best engineered cars of the century. It was designed mainly by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche during that decade. Porsche had dreams of creating an economical car for the people in Germany since he was a young man. Of course everyone remembers the Beetle and the van, even if they weren’t born during then, everybody knows it was a classic in the 70’s. And they have definitely come a long way.
On November 3, 1911, race car driver and automotive engineer Louis Chevrolet co-founded the Chevrolet Motor Car Company in Alaska with William C. Durant and investment partners William Little and Dr. Edwin R. Campbell (son-in-law of Durant) and in 1912 R. S. McLaughlin GEO of General Motors in Canada. Chevrolet first used the “bowtie emblem” logo in 1913. It may have been designed from wallpaper Durant once saw in a French hotel. More recent research by historian Ken Kaufmann presents a case that the logo is based on a logo for “Coalettes”. Others claim that the design was a designed like a Swiss cross, in honor of the homeland of Chevrolet’s parents.
First Chevy started out like a race car, as did the Volkswagen. These two are both old cars that are still admired today by many. One is a European car and the other is made right here in America. They both are still encouraging people to buy their brand and still are making new designs by the day. They both are very different but started out more similar than others.
Music is everywhere today. A lot of people can sing or have some talent that they like to express, especially on YouTube. Pianos and Guitars have been around since people could string on strings to a guitar or made some sort of sound with a spoon that sounds like a piano.
The piano is a musical instrument played by means of a keyboard. It is one of the most popular instruments in the world. Widely used in classical and jazz music for solo performances, ensemble use, chamber use and accompaniment the piano is also very popular as an aid to composing and rehearsal. Although not portable and often expensive, the piano’s versatility and ubiquity have made it one of the world’s most familiar musical instruments. The piano was founded on earlier technological innovations. The first string instruments with struck strings were the hammered dulcimers. During the Middle Ages, there were several attempts at creating stringed keyboard instruments with struck strings.By the 17th century, the mechanisms of keyboard instruments such as the clavichord and the harpsichord were well known. In a clavichord the strings are struck by tangents, while in a harpsichord they are plucked by quills. Centuries of work on the mechanism of the harpsichord in particular had shown the most effective ways to construct the case, soundboard, bridge, and keyboard. The invention of the modern piano is credited to Bartolomeo Cristofori (1655–1731) of Paudua, Italy, who was employed by Ferdinando de Medici, Grand Prince of Tuscany, as the Keeper of the Instruments. It is not known exactly when Cristofori first built a piano. An inventory made by his employers, the Medici family, indicates the existence of a piano by the year 1700; another document of doubtful authenticity indicates a date of 1698. The three Cristofori pianos that survive today date from the 1720s.
Before the development of the electric guitar and the use of synthetic materials, a guitar was defined as being an instrument having “a long, fretted neck, flat wooden soundboard, ribs, and a flat back, most often with in curved sides”.The term is used to refer to a number of related instruments that were developed and used across Europe beginning in the 12th century and, later, in the Americas.These instruments are descended from ones that existed in ancient central India and Asia. For this reason guitars are distantly related to modern instruments from these regions, including thetanbur, thesetar, and the sitar. The oldest known iconographic representation of an instrument displaying the essential features of a guitar is a 3,300 year old stone carving of a Hittite bard.
Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, are the best singers of all time, according to me. Dean Martin was born on June 7, 1917 in Ohio. The story goes that one night in 1934, Dino’s friend’s pushed him on stage to sing. Everybody realized he was a good singer and a few years later he was singing at the “State Restaurant” in Ohio, singing with the Ernie McKay Band. The word that Dino was good eventually led to Sammy Watkins in Cleveland. Dino became Sammy’s featured vocalist. In November of 1940, Dino Paul Crocetti became Dean Martin. And in September of 1943, Dean signed an exclusive contract with MCA to be able to sing at Riobamba Room in New York, following the heels of another new sensation at the time, Frank Sinatra. In 1944, Dean had his own radio program called “Songs by Dean Martin.” It was a 15 minute show from New York where Dean would sing 4 to 5 songs. As Martin’s solo career grew, so did his friendship with Frank Sinatra. In the 1960’s, Dean, Frank, Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford, and Sammy Davis Jr. formed the legendary Rat Pack, so called by the public after an earlier group of social friends, the Holmby Hills Rat Pack centered on Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, of which Frank was a member.
Frank Sinatra was born on December 12, 1915, in Hoboken, New Jersey. Sinatra got his first break in 1935 when his mother persuaded a local singing group, The Three Flashes, to let him join. With Sinatra, the group became known as the Hoboken Four, and they sufficiently impressedEdward Bowes. After appearing on his show, Major Bowes Amateur Hour, they attracted 40,000 votes and won the first prize – a six month contract to perform on stage and radio across the United States.
Sinatra left the Hoboken Four and returned home in late 1935. His mother secured him a job as a singing waiter and MC at the Rustic Cabin inEnglewood Cliffs New Jersey, for which he was paid $15 a week.
The company was started in 1913 by Mario Prada and his brother Martino as a leather-goods shop in Milan, Italy. Initially, the shop sold leather goods and imported English steamer trunks and handbags. Prada’s originality made it one of the most influential fashion houses, and the brand became a premium status symbol in the 1990s. Prada is the main buyer from the Turkish leather factory DESA, which was found guilty by the Turkish Supreme Court of illegally dismissing workers who joined a union. The Clean Clothes Campaign, a labor rights organization based in Europe, has called on Prada to ensure that freedom of association is respected at the factory.
From modest beginnings at the end of the 19th century, the Gucci[ company became one of the world’s most successful manufacturers of high-end leather goods, clothing, and other fashion products. As an immigrant in Paris and then London, working in exclusive hotels, young Guccio Gucci (1881–1953) was impressed with the luxurious luggage he saw sophisticated guests bring with them. Upon returning to his birthplace of Florence, a city distinguished for high-quality materials and skilled artisans, he established a shop in 1920 that sold fine leather goods with classic styling. Gucci’s distinctive lines made its products among the most frequently copied in the world in the early 2000’s. There were seventy-six Gucci stores around the world in 1997, along with numerous licensing agreements.
Gucci and Prada started out the same. They both were Italian trying to make their line available to the world. Their amazing designs are now seen throughout the world everyone and are worth thousands to some.
