On the cultural and religious front an obscure Russian monk in the sixteenth century numbered their centres as “the first Rome was Rome, the Second Rome was Constantinople, the third Rome is Moscow, and there will not be a fourth Rome.” I would not like to guess whether there will be a Fourth Rome (Beijing? ) but otherwise I regard number five as quite popular.
Second Industrial Revolution Thesis
The first telegraph line in England was opened in 1839.A telegraph cable under the Channel connecting France to Britain was successful at the second attempt in 1850, a mere 11 years later.The next step was to establish telegraph communications with the United Sates.After all the only difference is that the US is a little further away.” The first attempt was made in 1857. Many of them were traditional engineering problems, e.g.the paying-out apparatus that released the cable had to be flexible enough so that the extra stress resulting from the movement of the ship did not break the cable.He was one of the Directors of the Atlantic Telegraph Company.One might be permitted to think that he was elected on the grounds of his superior knowledge of things electrical.Charles Bright, the engineer-in-charge of the whole enterprise was enthusiastic and highly optimistic.The mechanical problems were daunting but familiar.When things change it makes then good sense to refer to old times as OLD and to new times as NEW. An example is the Old Kingdom of Egypt turning into the New Kingdom after a while, or another example is the Old Testament followed by the New Testament. There is a Pont Neuf, although I cannot remember a Pont Vieux.A more refined measure of the passage of time is to attach increasing numbers to events when major changes occur. Egypt had lots of dynasties starting with the First and ending up with the Thirty second. Considering only the Louis variety that would already add up to XVIII.
