It occurs in the context of Noah's drunkenness and is provoked by a shameful act perpetrated by Noah's son Ham , who "saw the nakedness of his father". The story's original purpose may have been to justify the subjection of the Canaanite people to the Israelites ,  but in later centuries, the narrative was interpreted by some Christians , Muslims and Jews as an explanation for black skin , as well as a justification for slavery. Nevertheless, most Christians, Muslims, Jews and Mormons now disagree with such interpretations, because in the biblical text, Ham himself is not cursed, and race or skin color is never mentioned. The objective of the story may have been to justify the subject status of the Canaanites , the descendants of Ham, to the Israelites , the descendants of Shem. In the Psalms, Egypt is equated with Ham.

Suspects Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson were arrested shortly after the attack and charged with first-degree murder following Shepard's death. Significant media coverage was given to the murder and what role Shepard's sexual orientation played as a motive for the commission of the crime. The prosecutor argued that McKinney's murder of Shepard was premeditated and driven by greed. McKinney's defense counsel countered by arguing that he had intended only to rob Shepard but killed him in a rage when Shepard made a sexual advance toward him. McKinney's girlfriend told police that he had been motivated by anti-gay sentiment but later recanted her statement, saying that she had lied because she thought it would help him. Both McKinney and Henderson were convicted of the murder, and each of them received two consecutive life sentences.

Considered to be the greatest mathematician of ancient history , and one of the greatest of all time,       Archimedes anticipated modern calculus and analysis by applying concepts of infinitesimals and the method of exhaustion to derive and rigorously prove a range of geometrical theorems , including: the area of a circle ; the surface area and volume of a sphere ; area of an ellipse ; the area under a parabola ; the volume of a segment of a paraboloid of revolution ; the volume of a segment of a hyperboloid of revolution ; and the area of a spiral. His other mathematical achievements include deriving an accurate approximation of pi ; defining and investigating the spiral that now bears his name ; and creating a system using exponentiation for expressing very large numbers. He was also one of the first to apply mathematics to physical phenomena , founding hydrostatics and statics , including an explanation of the principle of the lever. He is credited with designing innovative machines , such as his screw pump , compound pulleys , and defensive war machines to protect his native Syracuse from invasion.
