Muammar Gaddafi has been killed in his hometown of Sirte, two months after the fall of Tripoli and the end of his 42-year rule in Libya.

Senior officials in the National Transitional Council, who had laboured to subdue thousands of Gaddafi loyalists in Sirte, said his death would allow a declaration of "liberation" after eight months of bloodshed.

"We confirm that all the evils, plus Gaddafi, have vanished from this beloved country," Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril said in Tripoli as the body was delivered to Misrata, the city whose siege and suffering at the hands of Gaddafi's forces made it a symbol of the rebel cause.

"It's time to start a new Libya, a united Libya," Mr Jibril added. "One people, one future." A formal declaration of liberation, that will set the clock ticking on a timeline to elections, would be made by Friday, he said later.

Western leaders, who had held off cautiously from comment until Mr Jibril spoke, echoed his sentiments following the confirmation of the death of the former Libyan leader.

President Barack Obama said that the death of Muammar Gaddafi marks the end of a long and painful chapter for Libya.

The US president said that the Libyan people now have the opportunity to determine their own destiny.

He says that they also have a great responsibility to build a tolerant and democratic Libya.

British Prime Minister David Cameron, who with French President Nicolas Sarkozy was an early sponsor of February's revolt in Benghazi, said: "People in Libya today have an even greater chance after this news of building themselves a strong and democratic future."

The new national flag, resurrected by rebels who forced Gaddafi from his capital Tripoli in August, filled streets and squares as jubilant crowds whooped for joy and fired in the air.

In Sirte, fighters danced, brandishing a golden pistol they said they had taken…...

Research Mentes, a friend of Odysseus. Telemachus had spotted her standing on the porch and was the first to approach her. His spirits have been down since he had suitors whom were taking advantage of his hospitality and would not leave. Even with the inconvenience of his current guest, Telemachus still welcomed Mentes (Athena), into his home and offered hospitality. “ Greetings, stranger. You are welcome here. After you’ve had dinner, you can tell us what you need.” (Homer, The Odyssey, book1). Odysseus had broken the rule of hospitality by being a bad guest and entering his cave when the host was not there and then welcomed himself to Polyphemus’s food. After Polyphemus arrived and found the men in his home, he also did not follow the rule of hospitality and ate some of Odysseus’s men. This ended by Odysseus blinding Polyphemus and enraging his father the god Poseidon. “The Earthshaker has been after Odysseus ever since, not killing him, but keeping him away from his native land.” (Homer, The Odyssey,book1) In the Aeneid, Dido did her part as host and offered food, shelter and protection. Dido, at first saw them, as having a husband and wife relationship but Aeneas made it clear that the relationship they had was merely that of a guest and host relationship in which, Aeneas did not fulfill his part as guest. Dido cursed them “I hope, I pray, if the just gods still have any powers, wrecked on the rocks mid-sea you’ll drink a bowl of pain to dregs, crying out the name of Dido......

...strong enough to render him helpless. Cassius Dio, another Roman historian portrays Anthony as somewhat of a deserter. Leaving behind his Roman heritage to “embrace alien and barbaric customs” (OU Book1: Reputations –Resources page27 line 16) i.e. taking on all things Egyptian even down to his clothing. Dio also mentions that Anthony has become bewitched by Cleopatra and describes her as “that accursed woman” in his speech (OU Book1: Reputations –Resources page27 line 20). His speech empowers the fact that Cleopatra was, indeed, and overpowering, manipulative woman, and that Anthony would succumb to her every whim even if this meant the loss of his country, his people and his friends and as an extension, even meant the loss of his very own identity. Horace, a Roman poet has captured the essence of Cleopatra as noble and brave queen, as society does in its many movie portrayals, but fails to mention Anthony at all, in his poem. Horace wrote his ode around the same time as Anthony and Cleopatra lived and loved, so does this depict a truer image? More so than that of Plutarch or Dio, whose speeches were written long after the events occurred? What has been written about Cleopatra, by Roman historians, is demeaning. She has been described as “that accursed woman” (OU Book1: Reputations –Resources page27 line 20) by Cassius Dio and as “the mad queen” by Horace (OU: Book 1: Reputations: page 28 line 6). Anthony has been portrayed, by Plutarch, as a weak minded man who......

Desires, Contract and Laws from the Social Contract

...perfect laws to keep balance between desires and restriction. What confuses me is that how law can be enacted by people desiring for own interests but becomes the oracular and perfect yardstick in order to measure people. In line with Rousseau’s concept, citizens, the sovereign, the government, the legislator and laws compose the society. If no one is superior to others, I wonder who have the right to legalize the law. From my perception, the complete balance between desires of men and enactment of laws may be difficult to achieve.

Utilitarianism in Hrad Times

...How does Dickens expose the failings of utilitarianism in his novel Hard Times? Utilitarianism is a term quite unfamiliar among today’s generation, therefore let me start by defining what this word means. Utilitarianism says an action is morally right if it benefits the greatest number of people. You determine what is right by calculating the amount of pleasure or suffering your actions may cause. The opinion of the majority is more important than that of the minority. Book1 Now, what I want is, Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out nothing else." These are the first sentences the reader will read. Pretty harsh words to say to a classroom full of children, whose minds are bubbling to the brim with imagination meaning the reader, will automatically be put into the utilitarian way of thinking as soon as he/she opens the book. When you get further into book1 the reader realises that this novel is based on a time when utilitarianism dominated the country. Children are known for their wide imagination, their vivid thoughts; yet throughout book 1 we see Mr Gradgrind trying to sap it all out of them. Dickens was trying to show the negative side of imagination and human emotions depriving people of enjoying the qualities they were supposedly carrying with them. Children had no names but numbers; there is no room from an imaginative answer. A good example of this is with Bitzer and Sissy- both......
