My friends, today is the day we have been fighting for. Today is the day where everything will change. Today is the day that we can finally start making Russia great. Today we can start to rebuild what is left of this great nation. Now that justice has been served, now that we don’t have to put up with the idiocracy of the autocratic leader that was Nicholas ll.

Over the last three hundred years, our country has been led by the corrupted leadership of our autocratic leaders. Because of these leaders our farmers are starving and our cities are cramped with people trying to survive, our people have fallen at the hands of our leader but he still refused to help. On the day January 22nd in 1905, our people performed a peaceful protest asking our “little father” for help as many of them had been fired from their jobs, which was their only source of income. But what did he do, he ordered his military to kill them, his own people that he supposedly loved. Thousands were killed at the doors of the Winter Palace, and Bloody Nicholas didn’t even bat an eyelash out the thought of the innocent dying. Because of Nicholas, thousands lost jobs, workers starved and many died trying to fight for their rights.

Whilst Nicholas ll was ruling, he abused his autocratic power to suit the needs of himself and his family. When it was announced in 1906 that we would finally have a Duma, finally we could have somewhat of a say in what happened to our country, but the Tsar was unsatisfied with both the first and second Duma. When it got to electing to the third Duma, the Tsar made sure that the members would be in favour of his decisions, and this Duma survived five years before it dispersed. Now granted our fourth Duma was definitely the most successful, Nicholas was so obsessed with keeping this autocratic power in place that he didn’t realise what the country actually needed. We needed…...

...Journal #1 My speech wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, but it could have been better if I put more time into getting more information from my partner. The body paragraphs needed to give more information and go into more detail. Although it wasn’t that bad of a speech giving the thought that we met up for about thirty minutes. Back in high school when someone was giving a speech, we, the audience always tried to make them laugh, or simply just didn’t pay attention to the speaker and did something else. Now the audience was paying attention and being respectful which calmed me down when giving my speech. As the speaker I needed to be more enthusiastic while giving my speech, because how is the audience going to be interested if I don’t even seem interested. I noticed very few people glancing at their phones or just with a blank look in their face; this made me relax a little more for some reason. Even though I could have had more information and gone more into detail, my speech did flow from the thesis statement to my conclusion paragraph. I was getting more nervous as the names kept getting closer to mine, once my partner Aldo, brought me up when he gave his speech, which calmed my nervousness down a bit because it wasn’t that bad being in front of the class and having everyone’s eyes looking at you. Once my turn came to speak, I took deep breaths as I made my way to the front of the classroom, and once there I paused, and took one last deep breath, and......

...Tom Lawton Basic Principles of Speech 9/28/11 Self-Assessment Preparing for a speech and delivering a speech are two very different things. Many factors can take over before going in front of an audience and discussing a topic. Being nervous can prevent you from performing to the best of your abilities, which can result in a negative attitude about the presentation. Although preparation is important, most speeches just come down to being able give your speech effectively. Because this was our first big speech there were many areas that needed improvement as well as some that were done exceptionally well. There were distinct areas that needed improvement in the speech that our group presented. The first of which would be the use of fillers. “Umm”, “and”, and “uh” are one of my biggest pet peeves because it makes it seem as if the presenter is not ready to deliver the speech. Although this is also an outlet for people who are nervous it reflects negatively on how much preparation took place. Unfortunately I said “umm” 8 times in the speech as well as “and” and the occasional “uh”. The other members in my group did this as well, but to me it wasn’t as noticeable. Another thing that I looked down upon was the lack of volume that our group possessed. Volume is key when giving a speech because it allows the listener to not strain in order to hear. When some topics are important the volume should increase in order for the listener to......

...reached varies greatly from child to child. These different rates of maturation are connected to physical development and hormone balance, neither of which the child can control. For this reason, adolescents should be treated as individuals and any guidelines should be adapted to the particular child. The biological changes we associate with adolescence actually unfold over a long period of time, beginning with the maturation of the adrenal axis during childhood and ending with the maturation of the gonadal axis in the early 20s (Steinberg, 2011). Piagets Theory and Adolescent Maturity At 15 years of age a teenager is well prepared to understand the risks. According to Jean Piaget and his Theory of Cognitive Development a child between 7-11 years of age has the cognitive ability to consider problems with multiple dimensions and utilize abstract thinking (Morris & Maisto, 2008). If Piaget discovered this in the 1920s, it comes as no surprise that today’s professionals are proclaiming ten as the new sixteen, as far as, when children should be receiving education on sex (Kaeser, 2011). In the current society children are spending more unsupervised time with peers, and are assuming a more adult role (Eccles, 1999). In addition, they are not only being influenced by cultural and demographic differences, but the media and social networks are bombarding their senses as well. The formal operational stage lasts from adolescence until early adulthood. During this period, the......

Modern History - Romanovs

...TO WHAT EXTENT DID WW1 CONTRIBUTE TO THE FALL OD THE ROMANOV DYNASTY? The three-hundred year Tsarist dynasty collapsed during the Russian Revolution of February 1917, following Tsar Nicholas II’s abdication on the 2nd March. However, whilst the Revolution spurred this on, short and long-term causes were important. Most important was Russia’s involvement in the First World War, in which they suffered around two million losses compared to the British Empire’s one million and suffered embarrassing defeats. Historians suggest that victory in the war depended on a nation’s military effectiveness, economic strength, administration, and political stability. These were all challenges which the tsarist government failed to meet and led to the tsar’s downfall. The argument that the First World War led to the downfall of tsardom is supported by the military unreadiness of the Russian army. This is including the poor conditions that soldiers fought in, shortages and the low self-confidence of soldiers. Russian soldiers particularly experienced terrible conditions at war, including weaponry shortages. Despite having the largest army of all the countries who fought in the war, Russia did not send many men in proportion to its entire population to the war. This proved to be a mistake as the army was not as strong as it could have been. As well as this, up until 1915, a quarter of those men that were sent to the front were unarmed and were instructed to simply pick up what they......

...Erinn Elledge COMS203-1501A-08 Laticia Dezell 01/23/2015 Speech # 1 I Have a Dream August 28, 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. The speaker gained the attention of the audience of all the people who joined in the demonstration for freedom for the Negro’s. The topic of his speech is for freedom for the Negro, the Emancipation Proclamation. He is trying to stop discrimination for those of color. The facts and explanations that support his arguments are Constitution and Declaration of Independence are two very important explanations of the freedom all men even black. Civil Rights are a good example of his speech. Martin Luther King Jr. delivery of this speech was very good. He not only emphasized with loudness but you could hear the trembling in his voice when he would say something that was of great importance and he would raise his voice even higher. He was very enthusiastic when speaking of the freedom that the people should get and how some day he hoped the children would be able to walk the streets just as white people were able to. Martin Luther King Jr. reminded people throughout his speech that “I Have a Dream” he wasn’t talking only of himself but for all blacks in our nation. He emphasized what he wanted to see some day. His hopes and dreams for a better country. I believe in this speech he did well throughout, there really isn’t just one section or another that I liked better it was all wonderful....

Everything around you is fogy that it all starts to fade away and then you wake up with sweat dripping down your back and your heart racing a mile a minute.

...The Longest Day, the Shortest Speech http://vsotd.com/featured-speech/longest-day-shortest-speech#sthash.5hXfbsUi.dpuf "The troops, the air and the Navy did all that Bravery and devotion to duty could do." Address by Dwight D. Eisenhower Written in case of failure of D-Day Invasion, Normandy, France on June 6, 1944 In my analysis of this speech, I have found that the speech fails to adhere to the guidelines of informative speech. Although it meets a few of the guidelines, the speech overall is unsuccessful in the essence of providing the vital information needed to make it a worthy informative speech. In it’s opening sentence, the speech violates the guideline “Don’t be too technical”. The speaker’s use of words such as “landings” and “foothold” are technical jargons that the ordinary audience would not be able to fully comprehend. His speech is more directed towards the military savvy audience than the common citizen and leaves a lot to be desired. The speaker could have improved his speech by using less specialized words. Although sometimes, it becomes difficult to put military terms in easy to understand language, the speaker could have used words such as “attack” in lieu of “landings” and “control” instead of “foothold”. This would have made it much easier for the audience to understand and relate to the scene. Also, in the opening sentence, the speaker violates another guideline “Don’t overestimate what the audience knows” about the topic. He refers to......

Why Was the Romanov Dynasty Overthrown in 1917?

...Why was the Romanov Dynasty overthrown in February 1917? The Romanovs were a family that had ruled over Russia in complete autocratic fashion for over 300 years, however in February 1917, Nicholas II, the current Tsar, abdicated, and his brother refused the thrown. I think that it was a multitude of different factors that truly brought the Romanov Dynasty to an end, however, in my opinion the factor that truly encompassed all other factors into one fatal blow for the dynasty of his family, was the poor decision-making, stubbornness and ultimately the failures of Nicholas II as Tsar. The other factors and causes of the collapse of the Romanov Dynasty were the alienation that the Tsar created towards almost every sector of society, including the Duma, and the growing opposition that this resulted in, the First World War and its influences on society, and the also the large levels of instability that arose in the government around this time. Firstly, an important factor that must be discussed was the instable government in Russia at this point. Over the period from 1915 to 1916, Russia had seen 6 Ministers of Defence and 6 Interior Ministers. This highlights a number of different major issues in Russia at this point. Firstly it showed a fundamental lack of trust between the Tsar and his ministers. This could be taken further to show that therefore the Russian people may see the Tsar as incapable of change and fundamentally untrusting of politicians, as can be seen by his......

Thesis: From the disaster to the movie, the sinking of the Titanic remains one of the most famous tragedies in history. I. Introduction A.

Tim Winton - on Her Knees - "The Importance of Dignity" *** Not Completed *** Yr 11 Speech

...TEXTS AND COMPOSERS: Tim Winton’s – On Her Knees Topic: Importance of Dignity: Every person in this world is dignified in their own way; whether it is their riches, power, friends, family or even the smallest and most insignificant things, alot of things bring pride and dignity to one’s self. ”Pride” is an essential part of life as it gives self esteem and a feeling of self importance. Good morning/afternoon classmates; today I’ll be talking to you about the importance of dignity within Tim Winton’s “On Her Knees”. “On Her knees” is a powerful story that teaches and reinforces Tim Winton’s view of the true meaning of dignity. He accomplishes this through the use of “first person” making the text seem like an auto-biography of Carol, making her personal experiences seem more authenticated. Whether this story may be based on a true story or not, many of the occurrences within this short story are great examples of “The Importance Of Dignity”. Carol (the mother of Victor), quits her job as a specialized employee in a medical office, and instead becomes a maid to pay off her son’s law school fees. Victor during these troubled times feels guilty but most importantly feels that Carol’s dignity is devalued, perhaps even destroyed due to the fact that she cleans other peoples houses “on her knees”. Victor does not understand how Carol could do things to such an extent, despite having done so for his sake, as he understands that it is hurting his mother’s pride as a once......
