    The phrase "an heir and a spare" refers to the imperative for members of the royal family to provide both an heir to take on their title and a spare. In this equation King George VI was the spare - the second son of King George V and Mary, and never expected to sit on the throne. King George VI, or Albert as he was known prior to his kingship, had a career in the Royal Navy and served during the First World War before King Edward VIII’s decision to abdicate his throne.

    Mary Stuart was born into a powerful royal dynasty that was at war with the rest of Europe and with itself. Mary’s ascent to the throne was disarmingly easy and she reached adulthood completely unprepared for the plots and betrayals she would be subject to. As the head of a resolutely unstable country, Mary struggled to maintain her grip on the precarious crown on her head and was removed from the throne by an armed rebellion.

A formidable woman, Elizabeth I ruled alone at a time when Europe was a hotbed of conflict, dominated by empire-seeking Kings with opposing religious beliefs.

Henry was responsible for the separation of the Church of England from the Roman Catholic Church, the ramifications of which reverberated through subsequent centuries of European history. Domestically, Henry revolutionized the English Constitution, elevating his own status to that of a God.

    The man that the world knows as Winston Churchill looms large on the stage of world history. Like some sort of colossus from antiquity, Churchill strides between two major epochs in the world, one foot planted in the glory days of the British Empire when the sun never set on history’s largest known conglomeration of imperial holdings, and the other planted firmly in the aftermath of World War Two, and a post-war order that saw that empire collapse, with Britain barely hanging on to its own sovereignty in the wake.

    You may have heard about people who are gifted at taking photographs of information in their minds; however, what you may not have heard is that taking these types of photos is actually a skill that you can teach yourself. Memorizing information doesn’t have to be difficult, yet many people struggle to do so simply because they haven’t learned how to take pictures of images that they want to retain in their minds for future use. In other words, once you learn how to cultivate a photographic memory, you’ll be able to easily set yourself apart from the rest.

    Accelerated Learning by Jonathan Wilkens is a book created out of the idea that people can learn and grasp at a much faster rate. Over the centuries, accelerated learning has gone by different names. Its idea originally came out of the concept of Scientology which was then developed between the years of 1960, 1970 by Dr. Giogy Lozanov into Suggestopedia or Reservtopedia like some would call it. As Shakespeare is to literature, Dr. Giogy Lozanov is to Accelerated Learning. He is considered the father of accelerated learning. His Suggestopedia or Reservopedia concept is a technique that revolutionizes teaching and facilitates learning. And in the 20th century, Suggestopedia was rebirth into what we now call Accelerated Learning today.
