Students face a number of easy, straightforward to difficult, thought-provoking questions both in the classrooms and exams. Gone are the days when students used to sit behind the desk and hoped to absorb every word the teacher is delivering in his or her lecture, today each subject requires a different kind of thinking ability for the students. Simply speaking, the use of digital tools in modernized classrooms have tempted the learners to use their brains better than before. Consider a debate on French Revolution in the history subject. Let suppose the debate in the Revolution relates to the Napoleonic wars, here the teacher will ask one group will act as victors, where the other group of volunteers will act as losers. Furthermore, the students can also talk about how French Revolution altered the course of the modern history and gave birth to several modern political ideologies.

-- New research from experts in history, computer science and cognitive science shines fresh light on the French Revolution, showing how rhetorical and institutional innovations won acceptance for the ideas that built the French republic's foundation and inspired future democracies.

The researchers, including an Indiana University professor, doctoral student and undergraduate, used data-mining techniques to comb through transcripts of 40,000 speeches from the two-year tenure of the National Constituent Assembly, the first parliament of the revolution.

"At the beginning of the revolution, there's just a whole lot of newness going on," said Rebecca Spang, a co-author of the paper and a professor of history in the IU Bloomington College of Arts and Sciences.

"Eventually, some of it sticks, and people gravitate to it and keep working with it.

The study, "Individuals, Institutions and Innovation in the Debates of the French Revolution," was published April 17 in the peer-reviewed Proceedings of the National Academies of Science, or PNAS.

Alexander Barron, an IU doctoral candidate in the School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering is the lead author; other authors are Jenny Huang, a 2017 IU graduate with majors in social and cultural analysis; and Simon DeDeo of Carnegie Mellon University and the Santa Fe Institute.

A fire ravaged Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on Monday, which destroyed the iconic spire built in the 19th century.

An unlikely source has emerged as potentially helpful in the rebuilding efforts: The video game "Assasin's Creed Unity," which contains an elaborate re-creation of Notre-Dame during the French Revolution.

"Obviously we would like to help if they would like to get in touch," Ubisoft creative director Maxime Béland told Business Insider in an interview on Wednesday.

The studio has a "huge database" of research on Notre-Dame accrued across four years.

"It really took me a full day to put words to the feelings that I had regarding this," Durand told Business Insider in a phone interview on Wednesday.

He's the historian in charge of overseeing historical representations in the blockbuster "Assassin's Creed" franchise, and he spent four years overseeing the creation of "Assassin's Creed Unity" — a game set during the French Revolution, which contains a stunningly accurate depiction of Notre-Dame Cathedral as its centerpiece.

It s not the fault of Hollywood, Netflix, or even the internet.

Or, well, it s not all their fault.

We re to blame for encouraging all these nostalgic re-releases and poorly re-hashed versions of things from our childhood, too.

8-Bit Philosophy delves into our need for nostalgia and cites philosopher Svetlana Boyn, who has said that nostalgia has historically coincided with revolution.

During the French Revolution, people were nostalgic for Ancient Rome.

During the Industrial Revolution, the stories of King Arthur became really popular.

When it comes to shadowy cabals that supposedly control the world, the Illuminati should be at the top of any conspiracy theorist's list. An Illuminati Facebook page has 3.4 million likes, Madonna writes songs about the group, and YouTube channels calling pretty much everyone Illuminati notch almost 200,000 subscribers. They used symbols (like the owl), adopted pseudonyms to avoid identification, and had complicated hierarchies like Novice, Minerval, and Illuminated Minerval that divided the ranks. Other reports of rituals are harder to confirm, but we know that members were very paranoid and used spy-like protocol to keep one another's identities secret. It's also difficult to untangle the success of the Illuminati from that of the Freemasons, which they infiltrated and commingled with. It's just as tough to tell what influence the Illuminati actually had as opposed to the influence people think they had.

The 14th of July is Bastille Day, the national day of France, a celebration of the Storming of the Bastille, a turning point in the French Revolution.

But on Sunday, Bastille Day belonged to French inventor Franky Zapata, who literally flew over the Bastille Day celebrations (led by French President Emmanuel Macron) like the Green Goblin.

This was part of a military parade, featuring the 10 European countries that make up the European Intervention Initiative.

Zapata stole the show, zipping through the air on a turbine engine-powered hoverboard, armed with a rifle.

Zapata was the inventor of this device and, in 2018, was given a €1.3 million grant by the French military to make it functional for military use.

Folks on Twitter made the obvious connection: Zapata is the French Green Goblin.

However, there have been instances in the past years, especially in the internet culture, where men are questioned of their worthiness of wearing shorts.

Proponents of the question “Why do men wear shorts?” say that grown men are adults and should not be wearing shorts, and that shorts are for children.

Professor Kaiser explains that short history was associated with breeches or culottes (worn prior to the French Revolution in 1789).

Shorts were now limited to be worn by school children, an idea that declined slowly but continued to persist up until the 21st century.

This progression was associated not only with age grades but also with a kind of "flight from femininity" and toward manhood.

With this view of Mens shorts, it can already be understood why some people still think of grown men unworthy of wearing their newly bought Hurly Mens shorts.

It’s safe to say the public is familiar with the usual themes and formats of beer ads—beaches, parties, rivers, mountains and, in one case, a skateboarder lazily making his way down a San Diego street.

So you may be surprised to see a thrice-burned-down abbey and a monk risking his life as the theme of an ale ad.

The new work from Grimbergen, a Belgian brand that has a licensing agreement with Carlsberg for the international market, is straight out of Hollywood or Game of Thrones.

From the jump, you know this is not your typical beer ad.

It reveals the story of the Norbertine order of monks who brewed their beer for the locals outside Brussels starting in 1128.

The fathers of the order passed on their knowledge of beer brewing for generations, as the abbey endured wars and the French Revolution, burning down three times, only to be rebuilt.
