  • A Small Town Like Lower Binfield
    1,364 words
    Changes in England: 1900 to 1939 George Orwell's novel, Coming Up for Air, portrays England at two different times.

    Georg Simon Ohm At the time Georg Simon Ohm was born not much was known about electricity, he was out to change this. Georg grew up in Bavaria which is why most information about Georg is in German. There is even a College named after him: Georg-Simon-Ohm Fach hochschule Nuernberg.

    This was an extraordinary movie that showed the homely small-town moral values through glossy studio production. I really enjoyed this movie. It has very quickly become one of my favorite movies of all times. The characters were very good.
