Psychological portraits of Daisy and Gatsby in “The Great Gatsby” by Scott Fitzgerald. Characters are an important part of any novel. As a genre, the novel is long enough to develop characters, and to have quite a few of them as well. For this reason, most of good novels have life-alike, and well-developed characters.
It is up to the author of the novel to make reader like or dislike certain characters. A vivid example of this is The Great Gatsby, a novel by F Scott Fitzgerald. Written in the 1920’s, the book is very much an example of the Jazz Age.
In the recent years and even months, the war with terrorism and homeland security, especially airport security, have been on the top of the list of priorities of our government. Many security propositions and initiatives have been passed in Congress. This is done to make the community of our country safer and strengthen our military force. Since 9/11, all levels and branches of government have cooperated to strengthen aviation and border security, stockpile more medicines to defend against bio-terrorism, improve information sharing among our intelligence agencies and deploy more resources and personnel to protect our critical infrastructure.
However the changing nature of the threats for our country creates a need for a new and government structure that would be capable of protecting our country from attacks using any type of weapons. President Bush has proposed the most significant transformation of the U.S. government in over a half-century by consolidating the current confusing patchwork of government activities into a single department called the Department of Homeland Security. The Department of Homeland Security will have in one place all the resources needed to do what it takes to protect our country. The reorganization of America’s homeland security infrastructure is crucial to overcoming the enormous threat we face today. Currently, the Senate is working to follow the House’s lead and establish a Department of Homeland Security.
Everybody would agree that Modern Algebra, Geometry, Astronomy, and even Geography, owes the great deal to the Arab mathematics. Just as George Sarton, the famous Harvard professor of history and science wrote in his famous book “Introduction to the History of Science”:
“From the second half of the eighth to the end of the eleventh century, Arabic was the scientific, the progressive language of mankind. When the West was sufficiently mature to feel the need of deeper knowledge, it turned its attention, first of all, not to the Greek sources, but to the Arabic ones.” (A al’Daffa p.65).
