Antony’s speech draws a lot of attention from its repetition. In Antony’s speech he compliments Brutus and Caesar practically every time he begins a sentence. Brutus of course…

Chainsaws are perhaps one of the most convenient power tools available, and can save a lot of time and effort in construction and felling. Although the origin of the chainsaw is debatable, it is determined that the first chainsaw was made around 1830 by Bernard Heine, a German…
