The development of America took place when a static and status-bound European was responding to new intellectual stirrings, growing trade, and competition among emerging nation- states in overseas exploration and commerce. In 1585 Raleigh established the firs British Colony in North America on Roanoke Island. English colonization in America differed in character and consequences from that of other European nations. The English Monarchs had destroyed the power of the feudal nobility and had established a strong centralized state and in so doing, the monarchs had encouraged the growth of the business middle classes, the merchants and entrepreneurs who were to be major agents of the modernizing process. By seventeenth centaury, England's imperial reach was global; it stretched west from Ireland to Newfound land to Bermuda, and eastward to the subcontinent of India. It was to the west in the New World in 1606 that King James issued charter to two joint stock companies to colonize the land that Sir Walter Raleigh had named Virginia in honor of the Virgin Queen Elizabeth. The company promptly sent out an expedition of 144 people and after four months arduous......

...Germany and Austria-Hungary. France was attacked through Belgium by Germany, and that is which caused Britain to get pulled in as well. Japan had been allied with them at the time, causing their involvement in the war. As war raged in Europe, President Woodrow Wilson and the American people remained neutral. Both Central and Allied Powers attempted to sway American opinion by using propaganda. The United States at the time was made up of one-third citizens that were born in Europe, or that were children of European immigrants, Germany’s attempt to take advantage of that factor failed, as the American people remained firmly neutral. America’s neutrality was soon tested when both Central and Allied Powers attempted to gain advantage over US trade relationships. Britain controlled the north span of the Atlantic Ocean, and began refusing entrance into German ports. They also began illegally searching, seizing, and even holding vessels for months. Germany’s response to Britain’s tactics was to establish a submarine war zone near British Isles, which meant they would immediately sink all merchant ships that they encountered in the area. Germany went onto sinking both British and American vessels, including the Lusitania, which was a British passenger liner traveling from New York to Liverpool. Almost 1,200 people were killed, including 128 Americans. President Wilson reframed from asking congress for a declaration of war, even though Germany continued to sink more vessels......

...role of the receiver is to then decode the message, and according to Cheesebro, O’Connor, and Rios (2010), “the receiver’s response to the message and indicates how the message was seen, heard and understood and often how the receiver feels about the message.” The receiver may often use both verbal and non-verbal cues during this process to relay understanding of the message. The Role of Listening and Responding Listening and providing feedback is most likely the most crucial part of the communication process. Listening and ensuring you have received the message correctly, and then providing feedback is the way communication becomes an interactive experience. As a receiver one must concentrate on the message being sent, and a best practice is to repeat back to the sender their message, so they will know it has been relayed and received correctly, before providing feedback. This is especially true in the workplace, as more businesses strive to retain good employees. As highlighted in by Gublo (2013), “On many occasions, the failure to establish trust is related to the inability or unwillingness of the manager to receive feedback and communicate with the employee. Managers must begin the communication process with the understanding that they will make better decisions by listening to others. The manager must also face the fact that they do not always have the best answer to fix the problem at hand. Seeking out the perspective of others may result in a better fix to a......

...improperly stored and they play with them with their friends or family (Farah, Simon, Kellerman, 1999, p12). There is a need for stricter laws and policies for gun control in today’s society. The second Amendment always has been such a controversial issue on the right to bear arms. In 1791 the amendment stated that a “well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringes”. President Obama addressed a memorial gathering after a gun massacre took place on September 22, 2013 stated that he senses a “creeping resignation” in the United States that homicidal sanity like the Navy Yard Massacre is “somehow the new normal” and he also stated that “this should be a shock to us all” and that America should put a demand on “use common sense” that balances between having gun control and gun rights. President Obama stated that “We cannot accept this” the attack that happen on September 16, 2013 that killed a dozen of people at the Navy Yard (Schulte& Duggan 2013). In many states the right age to have a gun license is 18 years old, and many pro-gun advocates say that this should be good enough, but the opponents argue that the age should rise to 21 years old to buy a rifle or shot gun and 24 years old to own a hand gun, they must go through training on how to use and clean and properly store the guns before getting a license.

...United States History 2 Final Review Guide Part I: Multiple Choice Chapter 20 ● Results of the Treaty of Versailles: - The Treaty of Versailles was signed after WWI in the palace of Versailles on June 28, 1919. Its goals were to "clean up the mess" after the war. The Treaty reestablished many boundaries and borders. Colonies, namely Germany's, were split among the Allied nations. Germany was disarmed since they were considered to be a threat by the rest of the world. Germany was also forced to take full responsibility for WWI, and were charged billions of dollars, which destroyed their economy. In the long run, the Treaty did more harm than good. Due to all the problems the Treaty caused for Germany, the country was left in a bad mood and was definitely looking at the rest of the world with a vengeful eye. In a way, it could be said that the Treaty of Versailles indirectly led to WWII. ● Explain the policy of Imperialism: - Simply put, imperialism is the quest for colonial empires. Countries go to other places in the world and claim them as their own. Countries imperialized for many reasons. Some countries wanted to establish military bases. An example of this is Hawaii, which the United States took over and used as a naval base. Other reasons countries imperialized were to gain global prestige, as well as to expand their territory. ● President Wilson's rules for peace after WWI: - After the war, President Woodrow Wilson sought to......

...joined the fight in World War II, Shelby joined the National Guard and reached the rank of captain. After being discharged in 1945 he returned home to Mississippi and began writing again. He published five books in five years, but it wasn’t until 1953 that he would begin his trilogy on the Civil War. During an appearance of the public broadcasting, he was quoted as saying “Any understanding of this nation has to be based…on an understanding of the Civil War…The Civil War defined us as what we are, and it opened us to being what we became, good and bad things. It is very necessary if you’re going to understand the American character in the 20th century to learn about this enormous catastrophe of the mid-19th century. It was the crossroads of our being.” What one may interpret through his quote is that previous to the Civil War we were a large piece of land that held independent states. With the southern states wanting to withdraw from our nation, over the issue of slavery, this moment in history was going to decide the future. The entire nation seemed to be at odds, even families living in the same home were known to take opposite sides. No matter what the outcome was to be, this was either going to divide our country or make it a truly united nation. Civil War Defines Americans The Civil War defined Americans even many years after the war ended. When Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863 he set a precedent for the Union and......

Identify and compare trends in today’s global business management, challenges, and advantages working in overseas markets. Support your views. Global Management, as defined by learned.org, refers to the way an organization manages its business internationally, including its sales, marketing, hiring and finance practices” (2015, P.1). It involves company policy integration, so the organization can operate efficiently throughout the world. There are many trends that are developing in the international business market. The main trends developing in global management, as noted by The World Economic Forum, are as follows: Deepening income equality, persistent jobless growth and lack of leadership (2015). Deepening income inequality deals with the wide financial gap between the rich and the poor. “In developed and developing countries alike, the poorest half of the population often controls less than 10% of the wealth” (Mohammed, 2015, p. 3). While world economic growth is developing at a healthy pace, the growth disparity still remains, especially in underdeveloped countries and countries listed low in the Human Development Index (HDI). Persistent jobless growth “refers to the phenomenon in which economies exiting recessions demonstrate economic growth while merely maintain - or, in some cases, decreasing – their level of employment” (Summers, 2015, P. 1). It is a trend that deals with the......

The same holds true for the other person: the more points the other person accumulates, the better for him or her.

The interests of the proletariat thus coincide with those of society as a whole. The proletariat, in short, does not need ideology because it is the only class that needs no illusions. Understand the political spectrum (linear vs. horseshoe) Horseshoe theorists argue that the extreme left and the extreme right are a lot more similar than members of either group would admit.
