Splendid Isolation - coined originally by a Canadian, this term was used to describe Britain's foreign policy within Europe during the late 19th century, a policy characterised by a reluctance to enter into permanent alliances with other great powers, but rather to concentrate on their colonies.

The Franco-Prussian War, 1870 - spanning from July 1870 until May 1871, the Franco-Prussian War was fought between the French and the Germans, resulting in a comprehensive German victory. The primary cause of the war was Otto von Bismarck, Prussian Chancellor, and his desire to create a unified Germany.

Unification of Germany - officially occurring on the 18th January 1871, this unification was a direct result of the Franco-Prussian War, although many believed this organisation of German-speaking populations into one nation was inevitable. Nevertheless, this rose tensions for political, religious and cultural reasons, meaning true unification wasn't complete for years.

Austria-Hungary - in the Balkans, the growth of Slavic nationalist groups threatened the stability of the already-fragile Austro-Hungarian empire. These groups sought to gain independence from the political domination of this empire.

Unification of Italy - this involved the consolidation of states of the Italian peninsula into one state, spanning a large proportion of the 19th century. Many see the completion of this process as 1871, when Rome was made the capital city of this unified state. This was due to a growing national identity and the sight of nearby countries also unifying.

The Dual Alliance, 1879 - created on 7th October 1879 as part of Otto von Bismarck's plan to prevent or limit war. This alliance existed between Germany and Austria-Hungary, focusing on protecting one another in the event of Russian or French invasion.

The Triple Alliance, 1882 - this was a military…...

...The Boy In The Striped Pajamas In class, we read the book, The Boy In The Striped Pajamas. It was about the friendship of two young boys and how different their beliefs are. One of the boys is Jewish and the other has a father who works for Adolph Hitler and the Nazis, but Bruno (the son of the Nazi Commandant) has no clue what a Jew is or what a Nazi is. But Shmuel know that he is Jewish and that him and Bruno shouldn’t be playing with each other and that doesn’t interfere with their friendship what so ever. Nine year- old Bruno is very lonely, and ignorant until he meets his new best friend for life; he is very friendly to this boy that wears striped pajamas all day but still has many commonalities. Bruno had to move with his family to a place he thinks is named OutWith but is really pronounced Auschwitz, because of father’s promotion and his job is very important. When he left his lovely house in Berlin, he also had to leave his grandmother and grandfather along with his three best friends for life, Karl, Daniel, and Martine. Bruno and his family left their friends and family for a place with horrid scenery outside your bedroom window. The view you get is of a fence and on the other side; there are badly treated people. Another down about this new house is that there are soldiers and lieutenants walking in and out of your house as if they owned the place. The worst part about the house for Bruno and his sister was that there weren’t any other boys and girls their......

...Mark Piehl 2-17-11 Significant object essay for a grade Pokemon Cards As a child growing up I was completely infatuated with collecting Pokémon cards. The cardboard scent and the ripping sound of the reflective plastic package really got me excited like a little kid on Christmas day. I was always on the look out for the special holographic cards, which meant this particular card was rare. I had piles and piles of these cards that really aren’t worth anything now a days stuffed in a vans cardboard box under my bed hidden by a fluffy pillow because I thought one of my friends would try to sabotage my collection. Everyday of the week I would try to hustle my mom for four dollars so I could feed my unstoppable habit of buying more Pokémon cards. My old heavyset neighbor who wore small round rim glasses would trade cards with me back and fourth, unfortunately he usually never wanted to trade with me because he always had better cards. This bothered me to the core; he only did not have two of the rarest cards out in the market at the time, Charzard holographic and the Mew. The Charzard card resembles an orange fiery dinosaur that destroys anything that crosses its path within a few seconds. The Mew looks like a small pink alien with big bright yellow eyes that can magically cast spells on the enemy. Every card has a blue wave on the back of it with a red and white pokey ball that resembles the home of where the Pokémon evolve. The mere sight of this gave me a chill down my......

...'Pokemon' still catching 'em all on Nintendo 3DS (CNN) -- Two new Pokémon games, "Pokémon X" and "Pokémon Y," have taken the gaming world by storm, selling more than 4 million units globally in their first two days of availability, and tracking to become the fastest-selling games of all time for the handheld Nintendo 3DS. Not bad for a franchise that got its start in 1996 on the Nintendo Game Boy handheld console. But the president of the Pokémon Company said the new games stay true to their roots of bringing people together to play while offering a new blueprint for the universe of pocket monsters. "From the beginning, communication between players has been the primary goal for the Pokémon brand," Tsunekazu Ishihara told CNN. "Today, the ability to connect millions of people around the world via Wi-Fi is why launching 'Pokémon X' and 'Pokémon Y' simultaneously worldwide was an ambitious yet important goal." Since debuting in video and card games, Pokemon has become a cultural phenomenon across the globe. There have been cartoons, cereals and a feature-length film, not to mention the national and global tournaments that draw thousands of players. "Gotta catch 'em all" is the franchise's catch phrase, referring to the player's goal of catching and training the tiny monsters to compete against other players. That's gotten significantly harder, though, with the expansion to more than 700 different known creatures in the universe. Unlike previous titles that were named......

Junichi Masuda

... and is best known for his creation of sound and music in the Pokémon franchise of games. The first term that comes to my mind when referring to the work of Junichi Masuda is “nostalgia.” I think back to playing “Pokémon Gold” with my best friend Jack when we were younger. After a long adventure, accompanied by inspiring, adventurous, and sometimes creepy ominous tracks, you reach the Pokémon league, the final challenge for a Pokémon trainer. Standing before your final challenge the track “Pokémon League Theme” produced by Mr. Masuda himself plays in the background. Starting off slow with two notes alternating, slowly and ominously, the sounds build. The track grows in volume and intensity before leveling off and methodically repeating in the background. The reason this is so effective in capturing the mood of the scenario, and who Masuda himself is a genius in regards to sound design is how important the music is to this particular scene. Subtle examples such as this one may go undetected by the average gamer, but attempting to imagine the final hurdle in the amazing Pokémon games without these tracks in the background is simply impossible. Another trait that I admire in Junichi Masuda is his creative ability to adapt his music to the different worlds created all within the Pokémon universe. To date, six Pokémon regions have been created all with different cultural elements that make them distinct. In Pokémon X and Y, released in 2013, the art and character designs take...

Pokemon Ev Traing

...EV training and breeding Pokemon has been a staple of the franchise for years. In Pokemon X and Y, some mechanics of breeding and EV training were made easier for those patient trainers who wanted to breed the perfect EV/Egg/Hidden Ability Pokemon. In Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, EV training was made even easier than its predecessor and it will make for a much more fulfilling job when you train your perfect Pokemon. From the basics, to special moves and items to help you along the way, EV training in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is not as much a chore as it used to be. And while breeding is a part of customizing your ‘perfect’ Pokemon -- we’ll get to Breeding in ORAS later -- this guide will deal with EV Training in ORAS exclusively. Also, it will be silly of us to mention EV training with mentioning the Super Training. It hasn't changed since X and Y and you should definitely complete that before doing this. So how exactly does Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire make it easier to EV train your Pokemon? Let’s take a look. Basics Let’s start with the basics of EV training. As many veteran trainers know, every Pokemon is allowed 510 Effort Value points that will go into their overall stats. These points are based on what Pokemon you defeat. Each Pokemon in ORAS has a specific amount in a given stat their EV points go toward. For example: A Wingull gives 1 Speed point. Each stat is allotted 252 EV points to max out a Pokemon’s potential......

Pokemon Sun and Moon Speculation

...video regarding potential Mega Evolutions for the new Pokémon games coming out later this year. Considering the titles of these new games, are Pokémon Sun and Moon, I think it might be appropriate to look at Pokémon that utilize the Sun stone and Moon stone to evolve. We will be looking at how this can impact the game from a competitive standpoint and we will be rating on a scale of 1 to 10 each individual mega on how likely game freak would make this go from speculation to reality. Now let’s get into it! The first Pokémon on our list evolves using the Sun Stone. Sunflora is a Pokémon from gen 2 that overall below average stats, but what hurts this Pokémon a lot is that it is a grass type with a horrible speed stat of just base 30. I personally don’t even see a mega evolution helping this Pokémon unless it is granted a new typing. I might like to see sunflora get a secondary fire typing through mega evolution. Granted it doesn’t have access to any fire type moves up to 6th gen, gen 7 might go ahead change that up and give it access to flamethrower or fire blast. I’d say a mega evolution for sunflora with a new fire typing and some boosted stats could bump it up to the RU tier due to being able to take a hit much better and access to more coverage. As for my opinion in possibility of this happening let’s give it a 4/10. The 2nd Pokémon we will be looking at utilizes the Moon stone for evolution. Wigglytuff was a Pokémon that I always wanted to be better. 6th gen tried......

Attack Combo

...Attack Combos In the Pokémon games, there are many different strategies you could use to win against a clever foe. Some strategies can be used just to lay down an all-out assault on a foe, and some are more skilled and use a combination of defense and more adept move usage. Some Pokémon's heaviest hitting attacks rely on a combination of different moves, some more useful than others. This guide outlines some of those move combinations that you can use against an opponent. Use them on the right Pokémon, and they could be extremely dangerous. True Combos In Black & White, there are Combination Moves which are done by using two seperate moves with two of your Pokémon during Double or Triple battles. These moves will then combine and have an added extra effect. These effects vary from simple status afflictions to doing damage to the Pokémon. Only one of the Pokémon will do the damage to the Pokémon selected, but the effect will occur and lasts for several turns Grass Oath + Fire Oath | Moves Required: Grass Oath & Fire OathEffect: When you use the move Grass Oath and then the move Fire Oath during a Double or Triple battle, the move will combine and create a field of fire which causes small amounts of damage to your opponents each turn. | | Fire Oath + Water Oath | Moves Required: Fire Oath & Water OathEffect: When you use the move Fire Oath and then the move Water Oath during a Double or Triple battle, the move will combine and create a a rainbow over...
