Old english literature
Beowulf, a typical example of Old English poetry, is regarded today as the national epic of the Anglo-Saxons. However, the hero and the setting of Beowulf have nothing to do with England, for the story took place in Scandinavia.
Beowulf describes the exploits of a Scandinavian hero, Beowulf, in fighting against the monster Grendel, his revengeful mother, and a fire-breathing dragon. In these sequences Beowulf is shown not only as a glorious hero but also as a protector of the people.
Thematically the poem presents a vivid picture of how the primitive people wage heroic struggles against the hostile forces of natural world under a wise and mighty leader. The poem is an example of the mingling of nature myths and heroic legends.

Death Penalty

...Darius Crick Engl101 Professer Corvinis DEATH PENALTY The death penalty is a very strong subject in this day. thirty-two of the fifty states use this method but only nine of them have ever use it within the last ten years.This itself shows that the death penalty doesn’t work very well and for many reasons. it teaches and condemners nothing, its very hypocritical, the death penalty is usually always cruel, its more expensive to kill somebody than keeping them in jail, it also failed a a deterrent and prison itself is hell on earth. Each year there are about 250 people added to death row and 35 executed. From 1976 to 1995 there were a total of 314 people put to death in the US 179 of them were put to death using lethal injection, 123 were put to death using electrocution, 9 were put to death in a gas chamber, 2 were hanged, and 1 was put to death using the firing squad(http://www.statisticbrain.com/death-penalty-statistics/). The death penalty is the harshest form of punishment enforced in the United Sates today. Once a jury has convicted a criminal, they go to the second part of the trial, the punishment phase. If the jury recommends the death penalty and the judge agrees then the criminal will face some form of execution, lethal injection is the most common form used today. There was a period from 1972 to 1976 that capital punishment was ruled...

... in the reproductive tract before the shells from. While salmonella is most prevalent due to animal feces fruits and vegetables are also at risk for contamination. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services advises against eating raw sprouts with the reasoning being that they need warm and humid conditions to sprout and grow which are also ideal conditions for the growth of the Salmonella bacteria. ("Transmission of Salmonella Bacteria | About Salmonella," n.d.) In 2010 Andreas Baumler a professer of medical mircrobiology and immunology for University of California held a study to see the immune systems reaction to salmonella. His results showed that salmonella takes advantage of our immune systems reactions to continue infection spread in the body as well as put others at risk of infection. Bacteria must have energy in order to live and continue to reproduce and they can do that through respiration or fermentation. Since there is no oxygen in the intestine beneficial bacteria use the fermentation method to obtain energy. Salmonella upon invasion causes the immune system to respond by producing oxygen radicals in an attempt to kill off the bacteria, which does work against some of the bacteria however there are some that benefit from this and use that oxygen for respiration. This causes an inflammatory response which allows possible transmission from person to person. The response causes diarrhea and vomiting as the bodies attempt to cleanse itself which increases......
