Initially Cal, his friends and the sailors, overhearing Rose's screams, believe the penniless Jack attempted to rape her. She explains Jack saved her life, covering up her suicide attempt by explaining she slipped after trying to see the propellers. Jack corroborates her white lie to everyone present, but privately, Hockley's manservant, former police officer Spicer Lovejoy, expresses to Jack his skepticism. Jack and Rose strike up a tentative friendship as she thanks him for his corroboration, and he shares stories of his adventures traveling and sketching; their bond deepens when they leave a first-class formal dinner for a much livelier gathering in third-class.
Cal is informed of her partying in the steerage and forbids Rose to meet Jack again. Rose's mother also commands her to give up Jack and save her engagement to Cal in order to ensure their financial welfare. Eventually, Jack confronts Rose alone, but she is inclined to ignore their growing affection because of her engagement ...
Designed and built as record breakers, both held the coveted 'Blue Riband' for the fastest Atlantic crossing. They were built principally from lessons learnt from advances in warship construction, but most importantly both were powered by steam turbines driving quadruple screws, each fitted with a large balanced rudder, making them faster than the competition and easier to manoeuvre.
The Titanic is more than an epic of steam and steel. It is the story of her passengers, from first-class millionaires to third-class immigrants, who displayed incredible acts of courage, self-sacrifice, and heroism, and who endured extraordinary loss.
The History of Santa Claus
Santa Claus has been called by several different names throughout the years. The original tradition and legend of Santa Claus may have been based on the early Dutch legend of Sinter Klaas, originating in the 1600's. Santa Claus really started to get famous when American author Washington Irving published stories about Santa Claus, referring to him as Saint Nicholas. Saint Nicholas arrived on Christmas Eve bringing presents for children.

The founders of the American government looked to the Roman Republic as a model. Modern political institutions also reflect Roman origins: senators, bicameral legislatures, judges, and juries are all adapted from the Roman system. In addition, despite recent modernization, the Roman Catholic Church still uses symbols and ritual derived largely from the ancient Romans.

Frankenstein opens with a preface, signed by Mary Shelley but commonly supposed to have been written by her husband, Percy Bysshe Shelley. It states that the novel was begun during a summer vacation in the Swiss Alps, when unseasonably rainy weather and nights spent reading German ghost stories inspired the author and her literary companions to engage in a ghost story writing contest, of which this work is the only completed product.
rom the very beginnings of the English language there have been legends of great heroes. From the first settlements of Britain come stories rooted in ancient Celtic and Germanic imagination. Out of these stories, certain figures enjoy pre-eminence as the strongest, the bravest and the best. King Arthur is one such hero, known perhaps over all other mythical medieval figures as a chivalrous knight, a powerful warrior and a just and intelligent leader.

O ladă de şampanie în care sticlele erau încă nedesfăcute zace pe fundul oceanului-ceea ce aminteşte că Titanicul a fost un palat plutitor al celor bogaţi şi puternici. Lada în care erau sticlele a dispărut de mult, mâncată de moluştele xilofage. Alături de sticle se găseau plăci de faianţă, cu modele în alb şi roşu, provenind probabil dintr-o sală publică.
În ultimii câţiva ani, Administraţia Naţională pentru Ocean şi Atmosferă (NOAA), a lucrat discret, fără să facă valuri, la încheierea unui tratat care să protejeze Titanicul. Pe lângă faptul că trebuie să suporte impactul pe care îl au asupra sa vizitele oamenilor, Titanicul mai suferă şi de degradare naturală. Numeroase comunităţi de bacterii consumatoare de fier mănâncă sârguincios din coca navei. Cea mai bună cale de a evalua un astfel de impact ar fi finalizarea unor eforturi disciplinate de cartografiere, la care oceanografii se pricep cel mai bine.
