  • Argumentative Essay: Do Giants Exist?

    common ones are the Nephilim, Anakim, Amorites and Enim (answersingenesis). The Nephilim has attracted the most attention as there are claims that they are children of fallen angels and men (answersingenesis). Though the bible does not state the heights of this tribe they are regarded as giants because the translation of Nephilim from Hebrew is ‘giant’ (answersingemesis.com). Also, they were described as “mighty men of old” (answersingenesis.com). The Rephaim are another tribe of giants that is mentioned in the bible.

  • The Changing Nature Of Popular Journalism In The Second Half Of The 19th Century

    popular journalism provided a “quick, accurate presentation of the World’s news in the form of a careful digest,” and is the “new recording machine.” However, it is important to note that Harmsworth was writing from his position as the man who started tabloid newspapers in Britain, therefore he is biased in presenting a positive view on the change of popular newspapers.
