In the 1920s, filmmakers began experimenting with sound effects and music in films. With about 15 minutes of dialogue and songs, The Jazz Singer was the first feature-length film to have synchronized dialogue. Based on the earlier stage play, the film was a landmark in the history of motion pictures, and its release heralded the commercial ascendance of "talkies" and the decline of the silent film era. The first all-talking picture was released a year later. What was it? Discuss

City of the Dead

A necropolis, Greek for "city of the dead," is a large cemetery or burial ground. The term typically is used in reference to burial grounds that lie in close proximity to centers of ancient civilization. In fantasy literature, the word necropolis takes on a different connotation, often describing cities populated by zombies or the undead. The Hypogeum of Hal-Saflieni, which dates back to 2500 BCE, is probably the world's oldest necropolis. Why did ancient Romans adopt the necropolis? Discuss

Based on a belief in witchcraft, spirits, and demons, a superstition is the irrational idea that an object, action, or circumstance not logically related to a course of events influences its outcome. A common superstition in the Middle Ages was that the devil could enter a person's body during the unguarded moment when he was sneezing. Some believe that the practice of saying "God bless you" began for this reason. What famous theologian accused the papacy of perpetuating superstition?

Thomas Malthus

Malthus was an English economist, sociologist, and demographer. He is best known for his 1798 pamphlet An Essay on the Principle of Population, in which he theorizes that poverty is an unavoidable consequence of population growth. He explained that populations grow at a geometric rate, while the means of subsistence expands arithmetically; thus, war, famine, and disease are necessary checks on population. In later editions, what did Mathus add as a fourth check on population?
