History homework help

Write an 8-10 page (double-spaced, 12-point font, 1-inch margins) that uses at least two primary sources to analyze an event or issue from American history since World War II. 

Historians rely on primary sources to construct a picture of the past. During the 20th century, the number of primary sources became vast. While historians of the more distant past struggle to piece together the historical record, historians of recent America encounter more sources than they could possibly examine. 

Primary sources are sources created at the time of a particular event. (They are thus different from secondary sources, which include books and articles written about an event after the fact. Martin Luther King’s Letter from Birmingham City Jail is a primary source about the Civil Rights movement; Taylor Branch’s book, Parting the Waters, is a secondary source.)

Primary sources include newspaper accounts, magazine articles, news footage, advertisements, movies, television broadcasts, government reports and documents, letters, diaries, literature, paintings, songs, and artifacts. If you are unsure about the difference between primary and secondary sources, you should discuss your sources with me. 

Locate at least two sources pertaining to your topic. These sources could be from a newspapers, magazines, letters, diaries, speeches, films, TV broadcasts, court cases, etc. Analyze your sources carefully, and consider the following issues: what can these sources tell us about their era? Who created them? For what audience were they intended? For what purpose? How do these sources add to or alter our understanding of American history? How do they confirm or change what you know about the topic from textbooks or other sources.

Historians depend on serendipity (read: dumb luck) and browsing (read: long, tedious hours of fruitless scrounging) to locate sources. I urge you to peruse the library for sources on your topic, since you never know what you may find. Another way to locate sources is to check the footnotes and bibliographies of books and other secondary sources on your subject. And, of course, I am happy to suggest sources as well. 

Some good journalistic sources include Life, Newsweek, Time, and The New York Times. Many American history websites contain excellent sources for doing recent American history. 

economic and social factors

Research Proposal

What are some of the economic and social factors that occurred in Brazil during the last 5 years that would cause Brazil’s economy to downturn even more than it has? How about what factors have contributed to the economic downturn in Brazil between 2010 and 2015?

2. Opening Statement

3.  Why is the Problem Important?

This problem is important because Brazil being the part of the BRICS, it is an economy that if it fails, it could end up causing economic instability for the world market.

Why now?

Because now in this very day, Brazil is in a situation where if they further damaged their economy it could pivot them down to a level that could very much be permanent for them, and won’t be taken as a serious country anymore. In the other hand, there is a possibility for politics to change as Dilma’s second term as president has started worse than what people predicted. Meaning that the opposition can get back to power, and make some important changes in the economy, as that was their biggest asset to Brazil when competing for presidency.

4. Question How about what factors have contributed to the economic downturn in Brazil between 2010 and 2015?

Why is the problem hard?

The problem is hard because in order to solve economic problems in the country, corruption and many other social issues that affect Brazil’s economy indirectly have to be solved. Hard is an understatement for this problem as corruption, which is the main social issue in the country, is close to imbedded in Brazilian politics.

You need to consider alternative explanations for the downturn.  Could it be global factors (such as the lingering impact of the 2008 financial crisis, commodity prices,)  does it have something to do with domestic productivity? Or new government policies?  You need to have between 3 and 5 variables.

Outline:

I.                    Intro:  The introduction should contain parts 2-6 of your research proposal …an opening statement, the problem/puzzle, your research question and the identification of the factors (independent variables) which you think caused the economic decline (dependent variable).  Then you provide the reader with an overview of how you are going to organize the paper.

II.                  Background: Brazilian economy and what???

III.                Case I:  Brazil

                IV:

                DV:

Case II: Argentina  You haven’t mentioned Argentina up to now how does it play a role?  Maybe given how behind you are you should focus on Brazil?  (Let me know)

                IV:

                DV:

IV.                Comparative Analysis:   Argentina or Maybe just a good paper on Brazil

Assignment 2: Current Events and U.S. Diplomacy

Assignment 2: Current Events and U.S. Diplomacy
Due Week 9 and worth 175 points
This paper will be a revised and expanded version of the first research paper. Based on your instructor’s feedback, you will first revise the first paper.
Write three-to-four (3-4) new pages that address the following:

  1. Define presidential doctrine and summarize the regional or global events during the Cold War leading up to the formation of the presidential doctrine you wrote about in Assignment 1.
  2. Select one country you wrote about in Assignment 1 and describe the Cold War relationship that existed between the country you selected and the U.S. before the presidential doctrine was announced.
  3. Describe the relationship that currently exists between the U.S. and the country you selected in section (2) above.
  4. Describe the effect that the presidential doctrine has had on regional or global affairs since it was announced during the Cold War.
  5. Assess whether or not the presidential doctrine you wrote about in Assignment 1 doctrine had had the intended effect of altering the behavior of the country you selected in section (2) above since the doctrine was first announced.
  6. Use at least four (4) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

To help you understand this assignment further, the following description and examples may be useful.

Step 1: Define doctrine and identify why a president would want to announce one.
A doctrine is an ideological platform that a president uses to advance a policy towards a country or region in order to accomplish foreign policy goals for the United States, so you will need to expand on this theme.
Refer back to Assignment 1, and build on whatever doctrine you wrote about then.  Say, for example, you selected the Truman Doctrine.  Therefore, this is the only thing you will write about in Assignment 2 step 1.
Step 2: Select one country you wrote about in Assignment 1 and describe the Cold War relationship that existed between it and the U.S.
Before the presidential doctrine was announced.  In the case of Truman, you would pick either the Soviet Union, Greece, or Iran, since all three were affected by his doctrine.  If you are writing about the Eisenhower Doctrine, you would choose Lebanon or Egypt; if you wrote about the Kennedy Doctrine, you would have write about Cuba or Vietnam; if your wrote about the Nixon Doctrine, you would choose either Vietnam, Saudi Arabia or Iran; if you chose Carter, you would select either Iran or Afghanistan; and if you wrote about the Reagan Doctrine, you would select Nicaragua, Angola, Russia or Afghanistan (although there were several others).
Step 3: Describe what effect the presidential doctrine you chose has had on regional or global affairs since it was announced during the Cold War.
That is, how did the doctrine change the status quo regionally or globally after it was announced by the U.S.?  What happened in Western Europe after the Truman Doctrine was announced?  What happened in the Middle East after the Eisenhower Doctrine was announced?  What happened with Cuba or Vietnam after Kennedy offered up his doctrine of flexible response?  What happened in Southeast Asia or the Persian Gulf after the Nixon Doctrine went in effect?  What happened in the Middle East after the Carter Doctrine was announced?  What happened in Central America or Africa or the Middle East after Reagan announced his doctrine?
Step 4: Refer back to the country you selected in step two and describe the relationship that currently exists between the U.S. and that country.
How has the relationship changed between the U.S. and that country since the doctrine was announced?
Step 5: Evaluate whether or not the presidential doctrine had had the intended effect of altering the behavior of the one country you selected in section (2) above since the doctrine was first announced.
Your assignment must:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required page length.

Cultural Activity Report

HUM 112 Assignment

Assignment 3: Cultural Activity Report

As a way of experiencing the Humanities beyond your classroom, computer, and textbook, you are asked to do a certain type of “cultural activity” that fits well with our course and then report on your experience.   Your instructor will require you to propose an activity and get instructor approval before you do it and report on it (students should look for any instructions in that respect). Every effort should be made to ensure that this is a hands-on experience (not a virtual one), that this activity fits the HUM 112 class well, and that the activity is of sufficient quality for this university course. The two (2) key types of activities are a museum visit or a performance.

Note: This must not be a report on the same activity (and certainly not the same report) as done for another class, like HUM 111. For instance, one might go to the same museum as done for HUM 111, but this HUM 112 report will focus on entirely different works and displays.

  1. Visit a museum or gallery exhibition or attend a theater, dance, or musical performance before the end of Week 10. The activity (museum or performance) should have content that fits our course well. Have fun doing this.
  2. Write a two to three (2-3) page report (500-750 words) that describes your experience.
    • Clearly identify the event location, date attended, the attendees, and your initial reaction upon arriving at the event.
    • Provide specific information and a description of at least two (2) pieces.
    • Provide a summary of the event and describe your overall reaction after attending the event.
    • Use at least the class text as a reference (additional sources are fine, not necessary unless required by your content). Your report should include connections you make between things observed in your activity and things learned in the course and text.

Visiting a Museum 

  • It makes sense to approach a museum the way a seasoned traveler approaches visiting a city for the first time. Find out what is available to see. In the museum, find out what sort of exhibitions are currently housed in the museum and start with the exhibits that interest you.
  • If there is a travelling exhibition, it’s always a good idea to see it while you have the chance. Then, if you have time, you can look at other things in the museum.
  • Every effort should be made ahead of time to identify a museum that has items and works one can easily connect to our HUM 112 class and book. Since HUM 112 covers from 1600 AD to the present, it makes more sense to focus on items from this time frame. In general, museums with fine arts work better than history museums.
  • Any questions about whether a museum-visit activity fits the course and assignment well enough will be decided by the instructor when the student seeks approval for the activity. Any alternative activity outside the normal ones listed here, such as for those limited by disability or distance, will be determined by the instructor. Normally, we do not expect students to travel over an hour to get to an approved activity.
  • Make notes as you go through the museum and accept any handouts or pamphlets that the museum staff gives you. While you should not quote anything from the printed material when you do your report, the handouts may help to refresh your memory later.
  • The quality of your experience is not measured by the amount of time you spend in the galleries or the number of works of art that you actually see. The most rewarding experiences can come from finding two or three (2 or 3) pieces of art or exhibits which intrigue you and then considering those works in leisurely contemplation. Most museums have benches where you can sit and study a particular piece.
  • If you are having a difficult time deciding which pieces to write about, ask yourself these questions: (1) If the museum you are visiting suddenly caught fire, which two (2) pieces of art or exhibits would you most want to see saved from the fire? (2) Why would you choose those two (2) particular pieces?

 

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA Style format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. (Note: Students can find APA style materials located in the Additional Resources section of their Student Center within their course shell for reference)
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

 

  • Explain the importance of situating a society’s cultural and artistic expressions within a historical context.
  • Examine the influences of intellectual, religious, political, and socio-economic forces on social, cultural, and artistic expressions.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in the study of world cultures.
  • Write clearly and concisely about world cultures using proper writing mechanics

History Essay

You will choose one to write an essay, in a minimum of 2 pages, in which you will take a first-person perspective of the situation, describe the debate in your own words, and provide a justified and academically defended argument for one side or the other. The essay will need to reflect your understanding of the time to avoid being anachronistic, and your argument must relate to one of the viable outcomes from that time.

 As a multi-generational American citizen, in the wake of Pearl Harbor, do you support the internment of your Japanese neighbors?

 As an 18 year old, male high school senior, are you eager or fearful of going to war?

 As an 18 year old, female high school senior, are you eager or fearful of going into the wartime factories?

 Is the crisis in Europe something that the U.S. should join in; or should the U.S. remain isolated? (Use a perspective from no later than November 1941.)

 Is the possibility of ending the Depression reason enough to join the war?

Whichever first-person topic above you select, you must consider the influence of the below factors and conditions which are relevant to all the topics and provide historical detail relevant to your topics:

 perceptions or impacts of limitations on and advocacy for civil rights,

 influence by propaganda or stereotypes,

 impacts of international events or crises, and

 impacts of economic conditions.

As this is a point of view essay, a modern perspective will not accurately address what the question is asking for. To complete this assignment, a minimum two (2) reputable sources must be used, cited, and referenced, only one of which can be an assigned or provided text or source;

Germany History Short essay(Please read guidelines first) 1000 words

Americans like to look back on the Second World War as a heroic struggle of good versus evil waged by soldiers of the “Greatest Generation.” Whatever the merits of this perspective, it does little to explain why the war happened in the first place. What did Germans think the war was about? This week’s primary sources include the voices of military commanders, Nazi party leaders, and oppositional figures. What did they understand to be the purpose of the Third Reich’s military aggression? What sorts of violent measures did they consider to be morally justified in pursuit of German aims?
 
Please note: I am not asking you to justify Nazi positions (in fact, please don’t!). The goal here is for you to better understand the factors that propelled the most destructive war in European history.
 
4 of the sources I provided need to be used in the essay.

Historical Essay : America and the Great War

The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was the immediate cause of World War I. But the events that led to the Great War go further back into the nineteenth century. As with the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, nationalism, imperialism, and militarism all played a part.
Analyze how the forces of nationalism, imperialism, and militarism irrevocably led to World War I. Pay particular attention to the rise of Pan-Slavism in Eastern Europe and the corresponding rise of nationalism in German-speaking states. Analyze how the alliance system contributed to the ultimate outbreak of war.
Then analyze the events that drew the United States into World War I. Clearly discuss why America first remained neutral between1914-1917. What role did ethnicity play in America’s neutrality? Then identify and analyze the specific events that led to America’s entrance into the war. Evaluate America’s contribution to the war effort and to what extent America’s entry contributed to the end of the war. Finally, analyze the events that led to the defeat of the Treaty of Versailles. What effect did this have on America’s role in the world during the 1920s and 1930s? Pay particular attention to the role of President Woodrow Wilson both during and after the war, in particular, his efforts to establish the League of Nations.
This paper must be four to five double-spaced pages in length (not including the References page) and utilize no less than four academic quality sources. Margins should be no more than one inch (right and left) and the essay should be composed in an appropriate font and size. Sources must be documented and cited using APA format.

Civil War Paper

Over 600,000 Americans lost their lives in the Civil War, with the Northern troops suffering higher losses. The North believed the sacrifice was worth it; the slaves were freed, and the Union was preserved. The South, on the other hand, began almost immediately to glorify the lost cause. They turned their generals into mythic heroes and looked wistfully back at the antebellum period. They almost regretted surrendering.

Historian Shelby Foote said,

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.

Burns, K. & Burns, R. (Writers). (1990). Episode 1: The cause (1861). In K. Burns (Producer), The Civil War. Arlington, VA: Public Broadcasting Service.

Write a 1,400-word paper in which you answer the following questions:

  • What do you think Foote meant in the quoted passage? How does the Civil War define Americans?
  • If the Southern generals like Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson were so brilliant, and if the South lost fewer men than the North, why did the North win the war?

History – Bibliography

 The annotated bibliography will serve as your final assignment for this course. Like other final papers, you are expected to choose a topic (theme, event, institution, etc.) from the time period History 1 covers (pre-Columbian to 1877). Then you are expected to locate three sources (books, articles, etc.) that are likely to enhance your understanding of that topic. (For example, locating a book on The Iroquois Confederacy should enhance your understanding of Indian Nations of the Americas).
Unlike a final paper, an annotated bibliography, while the final writing assignment for this class, is also a research tool. Whether at a library, online, or both, you find sources for a topic (books, articles, etc.), then use the annotated bibliography as a means for analyzing each source: What is the book/article about (summary)? Is it a reliable source (assess)? How does it help you to understand the topic you have chosen (reflect)?
Make sure you follow the more specific guidelines regarding MLA citation and the content of your annotated bibliography listed on the syllabus.
For you topic, you can very specific or very broad. So long as the topic fits into the chronology of the course (pre-Columbian to 1877).
For example: Race/Racism (broad topic), slavery (more specific), Nat Turner’s Rebellion, The Underground Railroad, The Black Codes (all very specific).
You may also do a biography (George Washington, Abigail Adams, Harriet Tubman, , etc.)
I encourage you to use library and online search engines to locate sources. Please, keep it to books and academic or journalism articles (No Wikipedia, etc.!!!)
Here is an example of a completed annotated bibliography on three sources. The format of this example is how your annotated bibliography should look: Annotated Bibliography Example

A good place to begin looking for sources would be the EVC Library.

Critical/Cultural Theory

Using the Critical/Cultural Theory, select ONE example of dominant ideology – the preservation of political, social or cultural status quo, and select three examples to support your premise. Take your three examples from one media form (i.e., radio or film or TV). Explain how your examples demonstrate the dominant ideology you believe is being enforced. For example, one form of dominant ideology is that women can never be thin enough or beautiful enough, and advertising supports this. Examples for detailed discussion could be advertising found in Cosmo, Glamour and Seventeen (magazines as the chosen media form). Another option would be to compare political coverage of current events – evaluate how Fox News, CNN and MSNBC cover a particular news story. You can also explore something like the hero mythology – who are the good guys and bad guys? What stereotypes are enforced? Consider the values embedded in popular action movies or television shows. Be sure to review and reference your text’s discussion of critical/cultural theory and other types of qualitative analyses, and consider the impact of economics and target audiences. These ideas should be clearly articulated and included in your paper. This paper should be 4-5 pages in length.

Germany History Short essay

After 1945, many Germans looked back on the Weimar Republic with nostalgia and regret. Yet during the time span from 1919-1933, hardly any commentators seemed happy with conditions in Germany. Why did so many authors find Weimar politics and society to be disorienting and unappealing? Choose at least four authors from the Week Four sources and expound on their critiques of Weimar Germany. Why might the National Socialists have seemed to offer a kind of “solution” to the problems identified by these authors?

  • Is the crisis in Europe something that the U.S. should join in; or should the U.S. remain isolated? (Use a perspective from no later than November 1941.)
  • Is the possibility of ending the Depression reason enough to join the war?

Whichever first-person topic above you select, you must consider the influence of the below factors and conditions which are relevant to all the topics and provide historical detail relevant to your topics:

  • perceptions or impacts of limitations on and advocacy for civil rights,
  • influence by propaganda or stereotypes,

Section One: Please answer ONE of the following questions.
Sec 1, Q1: Nineteenth century Europe began an enormous program of global expansion, establishing colonies in much of Africa and Asia. What domestic factors, old and new, caused this flurry of colonial activity in the period after the 1870s? What is the connection between this new imperialism and Social Darwinism? What can we learn about the process and success of imperialism in Africa and Asia from Conrad’s story?
Sec 1, Q2: Romanticism was the beginning of the rejection of the Enlightenment ideas and beliefs, finally throwing away the rational mind for that of emotion. By the late 19th century, political thinkers, scientists and artists continued this earlier transformation in new ways. In your essay discuss the role of poetry and literature, philosophy, scientific thought and art in creating an alternative worldview that grabbed the imaginations of many in the 19th century. Discuss the important roles Romanticism, Impressionism and Irrationalism had in furthering the break from the 18th century’s Enlightenment. How did they compliment each other and create the modern world?
Section Two: Please answer ONE of the following questions.
Sec 2, Q1: What were the causes of the First World War and which, in your opinion, was the most important? Give examples to prove your point. What might European diplomats have done differently between 1880 and 1914 to avoid the Great War? What were some of the more immediate causes of the war between 1912-1914? For example, how did developments in the Balkans lead to the outbreak of war? Finally, why did everyone think the war would be over within six months? Explain.
Sec 2, Q2: The 1920s and the 1930s saw the rise of totalitarian governments in Europe, transforming politics and society while paving the way for the Second World War. In your essay, discuss the similarities and differences between the totalitarian governments created in Italy, Germany and the Soviet Union before 1939. In what ways did these governments deal with “internal problems” and threats to their rule? Why do you think there was so little resistance by the citizens of these three countries to the actions of their governments?

World War I nadir

Stokesbury uses the term “nadir of the war” to indicate that 1916-1917 were the lowest points of the war and presaged its coming end. Each of these 6 chapters tells the story of one aspect of a continually eroding war and domestic situation. Pick out four chapters to read and then write a paragraph about what happened that is illustrative of the collapsing situation. Title each of the four paragraphs. Use a date(s) in each paragraph title. This review will practice, as in Review 1, telling the story of what happened and then analyzing it in terms of demonstrating the continuing deterioration of the war effort and the failure to find a victor. As in the last two weeks work, we will concentrate on writing clearly and effectively. Avoid summarizing. Instead, pick out information that illustrates the point you are making (which is the deteriorating situation). Be ruthless in discarding extraneous material not germane to your points. Make sure to use dates, people’s names, places, incidents, cause and effect relationships. As in Thread 2 you might add an introduction and conclusion after you have written the four paragraphs that tie the paragraphs together. In this case the introduction would explain the general topic (nadir of war in 1916-1917) and the four topics that will illustrate it. The concluding paragraph would be an analysis of how and why this war came to be so vicious and destructive, but without end. In summary, chapter 13 discusses the failure of naval campaigns. Chapter 14 tells the story of desperate campaigns in Africa and Turkey. Chapter 15 describes the effects of growing resource shortages. Chapter 16 and the lecture describe the revolution in Russia that toppled the regime and led to Russia’s withdrawal from the war. Chapter 17 describes the desperate attempt by Germany to end the British blockade by renewing submarine warfare. Growing defections and refusal on the part of soldiers to fight is described in Chapter 18. Along the way many smaller countries that had been drawn into the war with promises of spoils of war, withdrew. Remember, the point of this essay in each paragraph is to demonstrate the declining nature of war (nadir) in 1916-1917.

History Assignment

Thomas Jefferson is one of our nation‟s most beloved founding fathers. Most Americans feel that they know more about him than other founders such as John Adams and James Madison. However, do we really know who he was? Just what kind of man was Thomas Jefferson? He wrote the words, “All men are created equal.” Yet did he actually believe those words enough to live them at Monticello?
1. To prepare for this essay, begin by reading the Introduction and Setting on pages 112-115 of Hollitz, Chapter 6. These pages are for your information only; you will not use this information for your CTA and analysis of primary sources.
2. For this assignment,
Begin by actively reading (Document 1), “Within the „Bowels‟ of the Republic” by Ronald Takaki (pp. 116-123). The first part of this assignment is a Critical Thinking Analysis of Takaki‟s article. Go back to the CTA instructions and example found on Student Tools or LM 7.
Next, as you read the primary sources (Documents 2-12, pp. 123-134), decide which 4 primary documents most strongly support Takaki‟s thesis and supporting arguments. Discuss these primary sources with an explanation for each, explaining why you believe these 4 documents support Takaki‟s thesis and evidence. You will need to demonstrate your understanding of each of the 4 primary sources and how each relates to Takaki. If you just explain the primary source, you haven’t completed this part of the assignment. The primary source must relate back to Takaki’s thesis and evidence. Be sure to let your reader know which primary source you are discussing.
If you choose to quote from the documents, you must use quotation marks and cite the quotation using document and page numbers. For example: (Document 5, p. 128).
Do not use lengthy quotations; paraphrasing Takaki‟s words or the primary sources demonstrates that you have processed and understand the material.
Use no more than three direct quotations from the chapter; make sure these quotations are no more than two lines each.
Double-space your work, and use 12 point, Times New Roman font. Proof aloud, and put spell and grammar check to work for you. Approximate length: 2 ½ – 3 pages.

Ronald Reagan His Place In History

Six Aspects Of The Man—Three Political, Three Personal—Hint At How Posterity Will View Him
Richard Brookhiser
Contemporary judgments of presidents are notoriously erratic. Consider the four who decorate Mount Rushmore, the stony seal of posterity’s approval. Although Washington retired with almost universally good reviews, Benjamin Franklin’s grandson did say he had “debauched” the nation. Jefferson left the White House with the joy of an escaping prisoner and a stress-induced migraine condition. The Senate was so angry with Theodore Roosevelt in his last days in office that it refused to accept his communications. Lincoln, who tops every historian’s rating of Presidents, was murdered.
When Ronald Reagan left office in 1989, he truly retired, intending no Nixonian or Carteresque codas, and the onset of Alzheimer’s was soon setting his agenda in any case. Journalists and historians could thus get an early start on their posthumous shiftings. But their work will go on for years. The talented Edmund Morris was given a clean shot at writing the definitive early account, like John Marshall’s biography of Washington (or Edwin O’Connor’s fictional portrait of James Michael Curley), but Morris produced such an eccentric work that even that task will have to be done, and redone.
Whatever the writers finally come up with, all their labors, like all the events of their subject’s career, will be distilled by the national memory into two or three facts or phrases, maybe only one. My childhood history of the Presidents, which had to find something important and moderately good to say about every Chief Executive, could at least say of Millard Fillmore that he sent Commodore Perry to Japan.
Here is a preliminary list of six aspects of Ronald Reagan—three personal, three political—from which those in the year 2075 may make their selection.
Like notable predecessors—Jefferson, FDR—Reagan had an optimistic view of things. Also like them, he had demons and enemies. But he was serenely confident that he would prevail. His political optimism came from a buoyant temperament. The command performance for his personality was the moment when, at the age of 70, one of John Hinckley’s bullets lodged an inch from his heart. He spent his time, before and after the operation that saved his life, cracking jokes almost as old as himself. We often use military metaphors to describe normal political controversy—for instance, a “barrage” of criticism. Ronald Reagan reacted to actual gunfire with better humor than many politicians do to bad headlines.
He reacted to gunfire with better humor than many politicians do to bad press.
In normal circumstances, Reagan’s favorite story about his sunny worldview concerned two boys who were told to clean out a stable. The task proved so Augean that one of them gave up. The other kept going. With so much excrement, he reasoned, there had to be a pony in there somewhere.
That story conveyed a truth about Reagan’s optimism: It was willed, sometimes contrary to all reason. Another story, which he told on the opening pages of his first memoir, the 1965 Where’s the Rest of Me?, supplies the psychological background of his determined hopefulness. Reagan describes finding his father, Jack, a genial, but alcoholic, shoe salesman, collapsed on the front porch one night after a binge. The scene was pure Frank Capra, down to the weather conditions: Jack Reagan’s “hair [was] soaked with melting snow.” As in some Frank Capra movies, there was also a dark subtext beneath a sentimental gloss. Ronald remembered helping his father, pityingly, to bed: “I could feel no resentment.” If he couldn’t feel any, why does he mention it? Any drunk’s child feels a host of negative emotions: resentment, anger, betrayal. Each child then deals with them in his own way. Ronald Reagan’s way was to dismiss his pain and to focus on the bright side: “In a few days” his father “was the bluff, hearty man I knew and loved.” In later life, Reagan would blot out both real problems and false obstacles, as well as bullets.
The black velvet backdrop behind his cheerfulness explains a second salient trait of Reagan’s: his coldness. Yes, he had a funny story for everyone, including Tip O’Neill and Mikhail Gorbachev, and he laughed at other people’s funny stories, not just his own. But behind the bonhomie, there was nothing accessible. “Even as a teenager,” wrote Edmund Morris, “he had taken no personal interest in people. They were, and remained, a faceless audience to his perpetual performance.” Certainly Morris felt faceless in Reagan’s presence, which seems to have driven the biographer to distraction. But he was not the only one. People who worked with Reagan closely for years felt they never penetrated. According to his speechwriter Peggy Noonan, White House staffers made jokes of his elusiveness: “Who was that masked man?”
Reagan’s coldness allowed him to be stubborn. He used all the resources of public relations, from marks on the floor to theme-of-the-day spin control to movie-star looks, to make his case. But after he had done all that he could do, he did not care what people thought of him. He had his message; when he became President, he had his programs; that was that. He often settled for less than he wanted, but he never stopped wanting it. His stubbornness helped him reach the White House despite one of the more discouraging pre-victory political records. Some politicians have won second contests after previously losing runs for the Presidency: Andrew Jackson, Richard Nixon. Some have won, after one failed attempt to secure their party’s nomination: James Monroe, George H. W. Bush. Reagan failed twice to get the Republican nomination—in 1968 and 1976—before lightning struck. Repeat losers, from Henry Clay to Bob Dole, usually go on losing. Only Reagan broke the pattern.
Reagan’s third important personal trait was simplicity. The literature of management is filled with variations on the polarity between big-picture men and detail men; in the realm of philosophy, Isaiah Berlin taught us to think of hedgehogs (the thinkers who see in the universe one big thing) and foxes (the thinkers who see multiplicity). The characteristic mistake of bigpicture hedgehogs is to ignore details that are in fact crucial; the characteristic mistake of detail foxes is to assume that hedgehogs see nothing at all. John Quincy Adams, the first Boylston Professor of Rhetoric at Harvard, called Andrew Jackson a “barbarian” who “hardly could spell his own name” this was five years after Jackson had cleaned Adams’s clock in the election of 1828.
Tip O’Neill, no Boylston Professor of Rhetoric but a Massachusetts politician, like Adams, said Reagan knew “less than any president I’ve ever known” (O’Neill, like Adams, also had his clock cleaned by his ignoramus enemy). Reagan indeed was about as far over in the direction of the big picture and hedgehog as it is possible to be. In his book The Presidential Difference, the political scientist Fred I. Greenstein made a useful movie-industry analogy to Reagan’s intellectual and management style. Reagan obviously was the star of his own administration, but he was also its producer. The writing, even the directing, could always be left to someone else. He was responsible for Reaganism.
What was that? The most concentrated (Reaganesque?) summary of its leading heads was made by the journalist R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.: “The Evil Empire; cut taxes; the pieties.” The economist Milton Friedman daydreams about an income tax return so simple it could be printed on a postcard. Reaganism could be jotted down on the back of a business card.
What fell off the card, Reagan believed, could safely be ignored. Pat Buchanan, another speechwriter, remembered sitting in on a cabinet-level debate between Secretary of State George Shultz and Secretary of Agriculture John Block on grain exports. While it raged, Reagan reached for a bowl of jellybeans, his favorite snack food, and began picking out his favorite colors. “My God,” Buchanan thought, “what in heaven’s name is with this guy?” Reagan, who caught Buchanan’s eye, winked. Buchanan interpreted the wink to mean: “They’re having an argument here, and I’m not getting into it.” Maybe that is what the wink meant. Or maybe—the coldness kicking in—it was Reagan’s way of averting an intrusive gaze. In either case, Mr. Shultz and Mr. Block were not attended to. That was safe enough when the subject was grain exports; less safe when it was the money shuffling of Lt. Col. Oliver North.
On the issues that constituted Reaganism, Reagan batted two for three. It became the fashion, after their collapse, to dismiss Communism and the Soviet Union as threats. It is easy to be wise after the fact. In the late seventies, Cuban soldiers patrolled the former Portuguese empire in Africa. The Soviets had acquired two new client states in the Western Hemisphere, Nicaragua and Grenada, and had invaded Afghanistan. Western Europe was rocked by a pro-Communist peace movement, terrified by the introduction of Soviet and American intermediate-range missiles on European soil.
Reagan’s distrust of Communism was deep and longstanding. As a president of the Screen Actors Guild, he had seen Communist attempts to take over Hollywood crafts unions; when the guild’s position on these turf wars shifted from neutral to anti-Communist, Reagan got an anonymous phone call on a movie set threatening that his face would be “fix[ed].” Early in the fifties, he read Witness, by the former Communist spy Whittaker Chambers. Witness was more than an espionage memoir; in one passage, Chambers recalled that the delicate folds of his baby daughter’s ears persuaded him that the universe was divinely designed and that scientific socialism was false. Three decades later, Reagan cited the passage on the baby’s ear to White House speechwriter Tony Dolan. Reagan was not well read, but what he read lodged in his mind.
Because of his optimism, he never adopted the defensive power-sharing strategy of longtime anti-Communists like Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger. He thought Communism was bad, and he thought it was doomed. When he became President, he confidently declared that freedom and the West would “transcend” Communism, that it would end “on the ash-heap of history,” that the Berlin Wall should be torn down.
The steps he took to bring this about included rolling back Communist gains at the margins, invading Grenada, supporting a counterrevolution in Nicaragua, and sending Stinger missiles to the Afghan resistance. (As in all wars, there were unintended consequences, as the Taliban and Osama bin Laden demonstrate.) He announced that he would take advantage of America’s lead in high tech by producing a missile defense system. Critics derided the Strategic Defense Initiative as a fantasy from Star Wars; Reagan embraced the pop-culture reference. He never deployed the system, and tests of its effectiveness continue to this day, as do arguments over the results. But the threat worried the Soviets; Gorbachev’s foreign minister, Aleksandr Bessmertnykh, told a 1993 conference of Cold Warriors at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs that SDI caused a tug of war inside the Soviet bureaucracy that was reflected in the divided purposes of the Gorbachev regime. Former Defense Secretary Frank Carlucci said at the same press conference that he “never believed” in SDI, and his skepticism may prove to be justified. On the other hand, the Cold War postmortem at which Bessmertnykh and Carlucci spoke was hosted by the victors, in Princeton, New Jersey, not Leningrad.
No one thing wins a war by itself. But Reagan’s appearance at the end of the Cold War was crucial. When he came into office, the Soviet Union was an aggressive hard-line state; when he left, it was a reforming, improvising one partly in response to his pressures. Less than a year after he retired, the Berlin Wall was torn down; two years after that, the Soviet Union was no more. It is hard to think of a comparably rapid collapse of a major power without major bloodletting. Woodrow Wilson helped beat the Central Powers in World War I, and Franklin Roosevelt played a far larger role in beating the Axis in World War II. World War III—the Cold War—was less cataclysmic but longer, and the role of the United States was even more central. Ronald Reagan helped guarantee an American victory, without fighting a Second Battle of the Marne or a D-Day.
When Reagan came into office, the American economy seemed as weak as the Yeltsin-era Russian army. The oil shock of the early seventies had hit it hard, and a combination of high inflation and high unemployment known as “stagflation”—which the reigning economists’ paradigm of the Phillips curve declared to be impossible—seemed impervious to the best efforts of Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Carter to massage it.
Politicians often preside over transformations they deplore.
Reagan’s remedy was as theological as the passage on the baby’s ear. A school of economists, called “supply-siders,” had studied the economic impact of tax rates (Robert Mundell, the school’s founder, was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics in 1999). They too had a curve, shaped like a croquet wicket and named after one of their number, Arthur Laffer, which they said showed the diminishing returns of revenue that resulted from ever-higher rates. If you cut tax rates, they argued, the economy would be stimulated, and the federal government would collect more money in tax revenues. Making use of a post-shooting wave of good feeling, Reagan was able to persuade Congress to implement something like their program.
In the event, the Laffer curve, like the Phillips curve, had some kinks in it. The great tax-rate cut was followed by two short, sharp recessions, one at the beginning of Reagan’s first term, the other at the end of George H. W. Bush’s only one. Both Bush and then Bill Clinton repudiated supply-side doctrine, though they did not in fact raise tax rates that much. The deficit, contrary to predictions, rose alarmingly, until the late nineties, when politicians began talking of surplus.
Still, the eighties and nineties were economically vastly different from the seventies. Americans worried less about OPEC or the potency of Asian models of capitalism and profited from their own. Success has many fathers. The Federal Reserve, which always goes its own way, deserves credit. So, more recently, does the computer economy, which was a spinoff of high-tech military spending. But Reagan was on the bridge when the twenty-year boom began.
On the third item of his agenda, “the pieties,” more commonly known as the social issues, Reagan was completely defeated. After signing an expansive abortion-rights bill as governor of California, Reagan came to oppose the practice. When he was elected President, abortion opponents spoke hopefully of a constitutional amendment returning jurisdiction on abortion to the states or banning abortion outright or of a congressional act (per Article III, Section 2) removing the issue from the sway of the courts. Nothing happened. When Reagan addressed audiences of gun owners as a fellow NRA member, they helped him in Republican primaries. Gun-control supporters made little progress during his administration, but recently they have made lots, aided in no small part by the crippled presence of former press secretary James Brady, shot by one of John Hinckley’s bullets. Sex continues to rock and roll through popular entertainment and, not so very long ago, even the Oval Office. Come to think of it, Reagan was the first divorced man to be elected President.
In 1979 the Washington political operative Paul Weyrich helped the Reverend Jerry Falwell found the Moral Majority, the organization’s name confidently assuming that there was such a thing, as Weyrich and Falwell defined it. In 1999 Weyrich gloomily announced that religious and social conservatives should retreat to their families and communities since the political and cultural situation was hopeless.
More objective observers like the political scientist Mark Lilla and the journalist David Frum (author of How We Got Here: The 70’s—The Decade That Brought You Modern Life—for Better or Worse) have amplified on Weyrich’s assessment, arguing that conservative politics and social liberalism are necessarily linked in the postmodern era. Necessity is what we make of it, but they are certainly linked in contemporary practice, and nothing Reagan professed to believe altered that.
Perhaps the pieties fell victim to simplicity. It may be that a hedgehog’s agenda maxes out at two big ideas. Abortion opponents were told during the early Reagan years to wait patiently while Communism and high tax rates were attended to; their turn would come. It never did.
Great generals and politicians often preside over social transformations they deplore. Washington’s Farewell Address deplores the party spirit, yet partisan politics became an unshakable aspect of American life in his administration. Thomas Jefferson was the harbinger of the new era, yet as Henry Adams argued in four stout volumes, that era was not the republican, country party ideal of Jefferson’s youth. If posterity accords Reagan some measure of their success—a world war and a twenty-year boom—it will also accord him their failure.
Reagan’s Presidency came at the end of the twentieth century—the actual one, not the calendrical one. The twentieth century, as many historians have noted, was a short century, running from 1914 to 1991. It was also an evil century, defined by tyranny and bloodshed. The United States came through it less badly scarred than any other major power and than many small ones. Ronald Reagan, who was born in 1911, before the Evil Century began, lived to see and understand its end—which he, as much as anyone else, assured would be relatively successful. Mount Rushmore is full, and that kind of pantheon should probably be reserved for those who speak to America’s spirit (then what’s TR doing there?). But when historians and children have to think of Ronald Reagan at the end of the twenty-first century, they won’t have to scratch around for some Commodore Perry.

Relationship between the Northern financial class and the United States government during the Civil War and Reconstruction eras

Bensel’s Yankee Leviathan focuses on the creation of the modern state apparatus during the Civil War and Reconstruction periods. Union mobilization during the Civil War and the policies associated with Reconstruction provided the impetus for the formation of an empowered federal government, under the leadership of the Republican Party. The Civil War, Bensel argues, “even more than the end of British colonial rule, represents the true foundational moment in American political development.” Union efforts to suppress Southern secession relied heavily on cooperation between the Republican controlled federal government and the financial sector in the Northeast. Bensel emphasizes the connection between Union war mobilization and the financial class. During Reconstruction, the Northeastern financial sector continued to exercise influence over federal policy. For this essay, students will discuss the relationship between the Northern financial class and the United States government during the Civil War and Reconstruction eras. Students should aim to show an appreciation for the mutually advantageous connections established between Washington and Northern finance. Special attention should be paid to the role of the financial sector during Union mobilization, the correspondence of interests between the Republican-led administration and the financial classes, the role of the financial sector in expanding and empowering statist elements, and the influence of the financial sector in determining Reconstruction policy. The essay is due July 7. The essay must be between 4-6 pages long. It must be at least 4 pages, but not longer than 6. Essays less than 4 pages will be penalized. Double space the text. 12 point, Times New Roman font. Use standard margins. Essays that use outside sources will be penalized. For in-text citations, simply write (Bensel, page #).

American / Immigrant women history

minimum of 200 – 250 words in your response

Ideas about women’s work have changed greatly over time in American history, but not always in the way you may have expected. For example, in the colonial period work was done in the home so women performed many tasks aside from childrearing that were crucial to the economy, such as care of livestock, gardening, etc. Likewise, immigration and the kinds of work performed by immigrant women has also varied greatly, and often pushed typically genderized boundaries. In this Seminar, you will consider the variety in women’s work today and explore the many factors involved in the labor of women outside the home.
Question 1: What do you think it would have been like to have been an immigrant to the United States in the late 1800’s?
Question 2:  Which experience that you have read about do you identify with most?
Question 3: Why are labor and immigration interconnected?
Question 4: How does women’s workplace activism impact labor issues?

History of Informatics and Areas of Practice – Entity Ranking

Informatics by definition refers to the use of information technology in specialized areas of science and arts. Informatics steers innovation that defines approaches to information and management of knowledge in nursing, clinical health, public health, education among other integrated levels of specialization (Nelson, 2013). It creates the need to develop new solutions to enhance more competencies in various domains. In this research, the informatics groups chosen are nursing, clinical and public health and informatics in education.
Informatics in nursing aims at integrating nursing science with various information management to identify and communicate data in cognitive nursing disciplines. This is useful to both nurses and people who want to gain knowledge in this field. Nursing informatics (NI) also include data mining that leads to desired outcomes. The use of information structures, processes and information techniques accomplish what nurses and consumers in healthcare desire.
Informatics in education is the use computer applications to support the delivery of learning in different institutions. Systems and networks that are primarily used in educational research and teaching of computer sciences and technology. It simplifies education, clinical and public health informatics creates an avenue to provide quality and accountability in the healthcare industry. Clinical officers and consumers use informatics to acquire relevant information needed to produce desired output.
In group1, quality care and safety of patients are the core reasons why computer-assisted decision-making techniques have drastically transformed nursing and health care systems positively. Patients can use these methods to learn about their health with the assistance of nurses (Kudyba, 2010). Nursing informatics also provide knowledge on clinical business techniques and analysis that in return improves nursing and healthcare systems.
For Group 2, education in informatics has been impacted positively. Due to systems and structures that information technology has provided a lot of students have been able to enroll in classes especially in higher institutions in developing world. It also increases access to learning materials, eases information acquiring and enhancement of literacy development. On the other hand, Group 3 Informatics in clinical health has provided a better ground for research into health. Clinical counting provides information about the use of general informatics to analyze data and generate desired output.
Ranking refers to the order in which items in these case groups are itemized or arranged in order of their strength or weakness. Group 1 which is nursing informatics is ranked higher due to the impact it has on health care. It has provided quality and best service to healthcare. Group 2 which is education informatics has transformed the way education is taken therefore improving access to education. Group3 is clinical and public informatics that have provided accountability and quality service in healthcare.
Nursing informatics dated about 30 years ago. The reason for the introduction of informatics in nursing was to provide high quality care to patients, share information, knowledge and data and lastly compare practice and theory in the advancement of nursing knowledge. To date, nursing informatics have taken significant strides in transforming and impacting knowledge to nurses and patients (Nelson, 2013). Education informatics dates way back with the introduction of computers and advancement of technology. It was meant to provide easy access to education and encourage learning. Currently, education informatics is highly successful with many institutions promoting e-learning. Clinical informatics have also succeeded in many ways with introduction clinical software and support systems.
Part 2
Health care informatics is the process used by health care providers to acquire, store and retrieve information on a patient to foster collaboration by the stakeholders in the health sector. The areas of health care informatics include; clinical care, public health, physical therapy, dentistry, nursing, occupational therapy, alternative medicine and biomedical research. All these are areas that need information regarding a patient (Nelson, 2013). It is important therefore that information about patients is collected, stored and retrieved when need arises, and this helps in creating an efficient, low cost health care sector subsequently improving the overall health care.
The area in health care informatics that this paper seeks to analyze is nursing. Nursing refers to the promotion, protection and optimization of health, prevention of injuries and illnesses and alleviating of suffering through treatment and diagnosis.
Current state of nursing informatics
The continuing development in this field has enabled nurses use computers by the use of computerized provider order entry. This has made intervention by nurses to be more efficient and timely manner, by freeing nurses from order transcription and order clarifying phone calls. The use of electronic medical records (EMR) has initiated a collaborative culture between nurses and other health care practitioners (Kudyba, 2010). The integration of the whole health care process has improved efficiency. There is minimal documentation process, hence reduces time spent and also guarantees proper storage of patient record.
The future trends in nursing informatics is the introduction of more sophisticated systems and nurses that are more trained to handle this system. There is an introduction of a system that integrates all healthcare practitioners. It will also be more expensive in the future to purchase the new sophisticated systems. Nurses will require additional knowledge that to operate the electronic medical records system, hence they will need more skills, hence the curriculum for the development of nurses will require to be changed (Nelson, 2013). Another emerging trend is the difference in technological know how of previous nurses and those that are graduating from colleges presently. The present nurses are more equipped to deal with the emerging technology in the nursing field thereby filling the skill gap.
There are challenges found in nursing informatics include lack of systems that can share data. The current system in nursing informatics does not provide interface with other departments therefore this hinders sharing of information among the various health care practitioners. Another challenge is that it is expensive for a new health care facility to buy the new technology that supports nursing informatics (Kudyba, 2010). There is also no use of interfacing systems currently, which hinders quality control efforts because different practitioners cannot enter the same data.

For example, in the colonial period work was done in the home so women performed many tasks aside from childrearing that were crucial to the economy, such as care of livestock, gardening, etc. Likewise, immigration and the kinds of work performed by immigrant women has also varied greatly, and often pushed typically genderized boundaries. In this Seminar, you will consider the variety in women’s work today and explore the many factors involved in the labor of women outside the home.
Question 1: What do you think it would have been like to have been an immigrant to the United States in the late 1800’s?
Question 2:  Which experience that you have read about do you identify with most?
Question 3: Why are labor and immigration interconnected?
Question 4: How does women’s workplace activism impact labor issues?

Webliography Assignment on Abolition of slavery in America (4 websites)
There is a great deal of information available on the web and you can do much of your research from your computer. However, not everything on the web is suitable for academic research. This assignment will help you evaluate web sites that you find on the web.
This assignment is essentially an expansion of the Week 2 Discussion but now you need to find web sources related to your research proposal. Find at least three (3) websites related to your research proposal. These can be online exhibits like the ones from the discussion, or they can be databases, academic/scholarly sources, government organizations, privately run website, or most anything else. You may not use Wikipedia or any other online encyclopedia as one of your three websites.
For each website, write up a 1-2 page summary of the content and evaluating the site’s value to a research project. When doing this, consider the following:
Who created the website and are they trustworthy? Is it a government organization like the Smithsonian or the US Army? College or university? Museum? Private individual?
Do they explain the history of the project? What do they view as the strength of the site? Are they trying to increase access to a story or a set of documents? Is the subject misunderstood and they are trying to bring clarity to the subject? Is it really geared as a marketing tool for you to visit a place or a thing?
Do they have a target audience? School kids? Researchers? The general population? How does the help or hurt the website?
Is it accurate? Does it have citations or a bibliography to check the information?
How does this website benefit your research? Is it giving you the chronology or basic facts of the topic? Give you access to good primary sources? Does something seem wrong with the website, which is inspiring you to investigate something further?
 
It is perfectly acceptable to write up a review for terrible websites.

These empires shared certain basic features, most notably their great size and diversity. Were these features a blessing or a curse? This assignment asks you to look at both sides of the coin, and to argue both positions.
Assignment
Write a well-organized 3-4 page paper in which you examine the ways in which the great size and diversity of classical empires
• contributed to their power;
and
• undermined their power.
In each case, base your argument on specific examples from the empires listed above.

America and the Great War

The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was the immediate cause of World War I. But the events that led to the Great War go further back into the nineteenth century. As with the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, nationalism, imperialism, and militarism all played a part.

Analyze how the forces of nationalism, imperialism, and militarism irrevocably led to World War I. Pay particular attention to the rise of Pan-Slavism in Eastern Europe and the corresponding rise of nationalism in German-speaking states. Analyze how the alliance system contributed to the ultimate outbreak of war

Then analyze the events that drew the United States into World War I. Clearly discuss why America first remained neutral between1914-1917. What role did ethnicity play in America’s neutrality? Then identify and analyze the specific events that led to America’s entrance into the war. Evaluate America’s contribution to the war effort and to what extent America’s entry contributed to the end of the war. Finally, analyze the events that led to the defeat of the Treaty of Versailles. What effect did this have on America’s role in the world during the 1920s and 1930s? Pay particular attention to the role of President Woodrow Wilson both during and after the war, in particular, his efforts to establish the League of Nations.

This paper must be four to five double-spaced pages in length (not including the References page) and utilize no less than four academic quality sources. Margins should be no more than one inch (right and left) and the essay should be composed in an appropriate font and size. Sources must be documented and cited using APA format.

The Great War

This Assignment will give you an opportunity to apply techniques of art analysis to a work of art that catches your attention. You will investigate the main points and purposes of that movement in art from the era of Modernism and see how it is relevant and present in today’s works of creative expression.

Part I: Introduce a movement of art, literature, architecture, or music from the unit. You should explain why you decided to investigate this movement. Explain the details and introduce some of the purposes behind this style of creation. These ideas are not limited to the time frame when they were put to use. Instead, learning about art in the Modern Era can give you tools for evaluating art, ideas, design, and music today as well.

Part II: Choose and introduce a creative product made between 2000 and today. You will make a case for why you believe this selection suits the movement you selected from the Modern Era. This could be a present-day work of art, architecture, literature, film, philosophy, design, opera, dance or music. What is this work? What makes you choose it?

Part III: Explain why the present-day work of artistic expression meets the definition of the Modernist movement on your view. Demonstrate the similarities that you see, the ideas and concepts that make it fit, and how you felt these ideas were connected. Explain why you think the present day creation would use the features of the Modernist artistic movement. Aim to really explain, justify, and interpret the ideas based on the concepts from the course and the ideas you have learned in the unit.

The Assignment should be at least 500 words. You may follow the Assignment template in Doc Sharing. Follow the formatting guidelines put forth in the APA style of writing, and structure your thoughts in essay format – introductory paragraph and thesis statement, supporting paragraphs, and a conclusion. Submit the project to the Dropbox when it is complete.

WORLD CULTURES

As a way of experiencing the Humanities beyond your classroom, computer, and textbook, you are asked to do a certain type of “cultural activity” that fits well with our course and then report on your experience.   Your instructor will require you to propose an activity and get instructor approval before you do it and report on it (students should look for any instructions in that respect). Every effort should be made to ensure that this is a hands-on experience (not a virtual one), that this activity fits the HUM 112 class well, and that the activity is of sufficient quality for this university course. The two (2) key types of activities are a museum visit or a performance. Note: This must not be a report on the same activity (and certainly not the same report) as done for another class, like HUM 111. For instance, one might go to the same museum as done for HUM 111, but this HUM 112 report will focus on entirely different works and displays.

  1. Visit a museum or gallery exhibition or attend a theater, dance, or musical performance before the end of Week 10. The activity (museum or performance) should have content that fits our course well. Have fun doing this.
  2. Write a two to three (2-3) page report (500-750 words) that describes your experience.
    • Clearly identify the event location, date attended, the attendees, and your initial reaction upon arriving at the event.
    • Provide specific information and a description of at least two (2) pieces.
    • Provide a summary of the event and describe your overall reaction after attending the event.
    • Use at least the class text as a reference (additional sources are fine, not necessary unless required by your content). Your report should include connections you make between things observed in your activity and things learned in the course and text.

Note: Submit your cultural activity choice to the instructor for approval before the end of Week 5 (earlier is even better). Look for guidance from the instructor for how or where to make your proposal. You may also seek advice from your instructor (provide your town / state or zip code) for a good activity in your general area.

Visiting a Museum 

  • It makes sense to approach a museum the way a seasoned traveler approaches visiting a city for the first time. Find out what is available to see. In the museum, find out what sort of exhibitions are currently housed in the museum and start with the exhibits that interest you.
  • If there is a travelling exhibition, it’s always a good idea to see it while you have the chance. Then, if you have time, you can look at other things in the museum.
  • Every effort should be made ahead of time to identify a museum that has items and works one can easily connect to our HUM 112 class and book. Since HUM 112 covers from 1600 AD to the present, it makes more sense to focus on items from this time frame. In general, museums with fine arts work better than history museums.
  • Any questions about whether a museum-visit activity fits the course and assignment well enough will be decided by the instructor when the student seeks approval for the activity. Any alternative activity outside the normal ones listed here, such as for those limited by disability or distance, will be determined by the instructor. Normally, we do not expect students to travel over an hour to get to an approved activity.
  • Make notes as you go through the museum and accept any handouts or pamphlets that the museum staff gives you. While you should not quote anything from the printed material when you do your report, the handouts may help to refresh your memory later.
  • The quality of your experience is not measured by the amount of time you spend in the galleries or the number of works of art that you actually see. The most rewarding experiences can come from finding two or three (2 or 3) pieces of art or exhibits which intrigue you and then considering those works in leisurely contemplation. Most museums have benches where you can sit and study a particular piece.
  • If you are having a difficult time deciding which pieces to write about, ask yourself these questions: (1) If the museum you are visiting suddenly caught fire, which two (2) pieces of art or exhibits would you most want to see saved from the fire? (2) Why would you choose those two (2) particular pieces?

Attending a Performance

  • Check your local colleges to see if there are any free or low-cost performances or student recitals. Student performances are generally of almost the same quality as professional performances, but typically cost much less. However, performances of high school level or lower will not meet this requirement.
  • Try to do a quality performance that fits the class subject matter well. Sorry—but this is not for pop music or rock music, rap, country music, gospel music, comedy routines, your kid’s dance recital, your international friend’s wedding, high school plays, renaissance fairs, etc. Instead, think of college level or professional recitals, string quartets, symphony orchestras, opera, jazz, some stage dramas, etc.

  • Any questions about whether a performance activity fits the course and assignment well enough will be decided by the instructor when the student seeks approval for an activity. Any alternative activity outside the normal ones listed here, such as for those limited by disability or distance, will be determined by the instructor. Normally, we do not expect students to travel over an hour to get to an approved activity.
  • Unlike visiting a museum, where you can wear almost anything, people attending performances are often expected to “dress up” a bit.
  • Take a pen or pencil with you and accept the program you are offered by the usher; you will probably want to take notes on it during or after the performance.
  • Turn off your cell phone before entering the auditorium. Do not use your phone to record the music or to take pictures or videos. To play it safe, turn the phone off.
  • Most long musical performances have at least one (1) intermission. If the lights start blinking, it is the sign that the performance is about to begin.
  • Look for very specific things (such as a particular piece of music or the way certain instruments sounded at a specific time) which tend to stand out as either enjoyable or not enjoyable. Be sure to take notes of the things which you find enjoyable as well as the things which are not enjoyable.

Imagine that you are selected as the screenwriter and star for a new Back to the Future film. You will be going back to the time of the American Revolution, and to the era of Industrialism, Realism, and Nationalism. You will write a short narrative of your adventures. This can be written as an essay, play, or short story. However, if you select a creative writing approach, be sure that you still meet the requirements to use and cite a source, and to fulfill the assignment elements in Part I and Part II.

Part I: First, put yourself into the time of the American Revolution. What role would you play in the events – for example, a leader, a rebel, a supporter, an artist? You get to decide. How will you respond to the American Revolutionary efforts?

You must highlight one event in the American Revolution and explain the reasons for your response to them. Be specific about the event, introduce it using the text, and then discuss your expectations for how you might react to this event. Give detail to set the scene, reflect what you have learned about the American Revolution, and reflect on some of the differences between our time and the Revolutionary Era.

Part II: Finally, move into the time of Industrialization. Which role might you hold in this time period? Perhaps you would be a Realist author, a photographer, or an Industrialist.

You must highlight one event in this era and explain the reasons for your response to them. Be specific about the event, introduce it using the text, and then discuss your expectations for how you might react. Give detail to set the scene, reflect what you have learned about this period of time, and reflect on some of the differences between our time and the era of early Industrialization.

You are required to use and cite the textbook as a source. You may want to use and cite other research as well.

The Assignment should be at least 500 words.

Environmental Issues and the Industrial Revolution

The Industrial Revolution, which began in the eighteenth century, has had an ongoing influence on society as well as the relationship between humans and their environment. With the onset of industrialization came the drastic increase in urbanization, setting up of factories in places which were once biomes, and the rapid development of land. All this occurred without assessing the long-term impact to the environment. Recognizing the importance of the Industrial Revolution era and the ongoing impact it has had on the environment is essential to learning how to help the environment and correct the damage of that era.

Using the readings for this module, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, complete the following:

  • Identify three of the most environmentally negative impacts of the Industrial Revolution and justify your choices. For example, the invention of the automobile revolutionized travel in a positive manner. However, this invention is causing some of the biggest environmental problems as a result of the extensive use of oil extracted from the earth.
  • Examine how these three negative impacts changed the environment; list the mechanisms through which this happened. For example, factories caused an increase in pollution through the release of toxic waste, which led to diminished and lost fish populations in rivers.
  • Explain the effect of the environmental movement on the process of industrialization in the United States during the 1970s.
  • Identify the laws passed to help ameliorate the environmental issues in the U.S. or around the world related to these three impacts. Have any laws been passed since this movement in the 1970s? If there have been laws implemented, summarize the spirit of the law and comment on the effectiveness of the law.
  • Based on your research, examine whether the state of the environment has become worse or has improved as a result of these laws. If you think conditions have not improved, suggest solutions or steps that must be done to improve the situation.

Support your statements with appropriate examples and scholarly references. Be sure to include an additional page for references.

Write a 4–5-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

Machiavelli’s The Prince

Graded Assignment

Machiavelli’s The Prince

Complete and submit this assignment by the due date to receive full credit.

(50 points)

Italian political writer Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince is one of the most powerful discussions of politics during the Italian Renaissance. Machiavelli wrote the book to offer practical advice to Italian nobles. The book reflects the way he thought that government actually worked, rather than the lofty, often unrealistic ideals expressed by others. Machiavelli believed that a ruler should be concerned only with power and success. Today, The Prince is considered a portrayal of how leaders often have to act ruthlessly.

  1. Think about Machiavelli’s ideas on political leadership. Is he right? Is he wrong? Should we expect our political leaders to always be virtuous as well as effective? Which is more important in a leader, virtue or effectiveness? Why? Write an essay explaining your answer to these questions.

*Questions--Assuming that the organization you have chosen is based in the U.S., discuss how you think that your organization might have to change some of its management techniques, practices, etc., if it were to open a new location or facility in another country you are generally familiar with. This would have you consider several of the Hofstede cultural dimensions briefly mentioned above. 

Please be specific as you identify three or four of Hofstede’s cultural dimensions for this other country, and how the management group in your organization would/should adapt its management practices, policies, etc., to be successful in that new culture. (Of course, if you think that changes for the new culture would not be necessary for one or more of the cultural dimensions, you could discuss that.)

For example, perhaps you are thinking about the General Motors corporation, and you are considering how it might have to run its automobile manufacturing plant differently in a country such as France where several of Hofstede’s dimensions do seem to be different from the U.S.

(II)

Questions: As you consider the relevant materials in the Week 3 Schedule Topic and/or in Chapter 4, please discuss the vision and mission statements (either the recommended or the actual ones) for the organization that you chose. 

For instance, why do you think that the vision and mission statements (that you developed or found) would be effective for the organization ? As you consider the factors that can help to make a mission/vision statement effective, please include several of these in your response as you evaluate the mission & vision.

Based upon your analysis, what changes (if any) would you recommend for your organization’s mission & vision statements ?

(*If you develop these, typically an organization’s vision and mission statements should be reasonably brief and clear so that employees and other stakeholders can readily understand what the organization is trying to do)

For instance, why do you think that the vision and mission statements (that you developed or found) would be effective for the organization ? As you consider the factors that can help to make a mission/vision statement effective, please include several of these in your response as you evaluate the mission & vision.

Based upon your analysis, what changes (if any) would you recommend for your organization’s mission & vision statements ?

(*If you develop these, typically an organization’s vision and mission statements should be reasonably brief and clear so that employees and other stakeholders can readily understand what the organization is trying to do)

Civilizations

Until the end of the 1700s, the economies of all the world’s major civilizations were principally agriculture, and their societies were rural. Most people in most nations lived in the countryside and worked at growing food and tending livestock. Over the course of centuries, trade and commerce, as well as arts and crafts, had become increasingly important as sectors of economies throughout the world. Compared to agriculture, however, they remained relatively minor.
In Europe, this state of affairs changed dramatically during the end of the 1700s and the first half of the 1800s. The mass production of goods by means of machine power—industrialization—became a key part of Western economies. The importance of trade and commerce skyrocketed, and a growing number of people moved from rural areas to the city. The economic system known as capitalism was born. Taken together, these phenomena are part of what is commonly known as the Industrial Revolution.
England was considered the epicenter of the Industrial Revolution. There are several key reasons for this which we will explore in this case.
After looking through this page and other research from the Internet and the Cyber-library, write a 3-5 page paper answering the following questions:
What was the scientific background that lay behind the West’s leap in productivity? Why did the Industrial Revolution start in Britain?
If you cannot locate an article in one set of databases (such as EBSCO), try to find it in ProQuest.

The Damned Human Race

Choose one argument from the historic American or global works listed in the “Supplemental Readings” section of the course lessons. Decide whether this argument is successful or not. If you decide this essay is successful, discuss why. You may use the structure of the argument, the tone, and the various types of support (ethos, pathos, and logos) as proof of the argument’s success. Make sure that your thesis has an introduction that contains a hook and a thesis, body paragraphs that discuss one proof at a time (one paragraph per example), and a conclusion. If you decide that the essay is not successful, then discuss the fallacies that the argument makes. You are still required to have a strong introduction (hook and thesis), body paragraphs that discuss one fallacy at a time, and a conclusion. You may also discuss how the essay is successful with reservations. In this case, point to both the support and the fallacies you have found in the work. This paper should be at least 700 words, but no more than 850. The paper should be formatted correctly MLA style and written in third person (do not use the words I, me, us, we, or you). The essay should also contain citations and a works cited list. Formulate the structured response from your own close reading of the text. Do not use outside sources (open Web) without explicit permission from the instructor.

Brazil provides a fascinating example of contrasting environmental policy. Protecting Brazilian rain forests has been a public interest for those in Brazil and those outside of Brazil for decades. However, rainforests continue to be cut down at an alarming rate. Meanwhile, Brazil is the world’s second largest producer of ethanol and maintains much of its energy needs through biofuels. Answer the following: 1) Describe how the two “green issues” are in conflict with each other and what you believe to be the interest groups driving this dynamic? 2) What domestic economic policies might Brazil try to promote with these contradictory environmental policies?

Classical ethical theories (Utilitarian, Kantian, Virtue)

How would one of the classical ethical theories (Utilitarian, Kantian, Virtue) apply to the ethical dilemma? This means how would, say, a Utilitarian, a Kantian or a Virtue ethicist respond to the question and attempt to resolve the dilemma? You should plan to explain the ethical theory you choose to apply (please only use ONE theory).
 
What is one ‘outside source’ (not from our text or assigned readings) that directly addresses the ethical dilemma you cited earlier?  How does this ‘outside source’ specifically respond to the ethical dilemma and is this response similar to, or different from, the classical ethical theory’s response (ie, compare/contrast two different philosophical responses to the ethical dilemma).
 
How would you attempt to resolve the ethical dilemma?  Would it compare or contrast with either of the previous two responses (classical ethical theory, outside source)? If it contrasts, then what specifically do you find disagreeable with either or both of the prior responses? If your response compares favorably, then what specifically about one or both of the philosophical responses do you find agreeable and why?
 Suggestions: Typed, double-spaced, one-inch margins (top,bottom,sides), bibliography or works cited papge, cite any sources that are not coming from you, 5-7 pp length., define any relevant terms that you learned from this class.

United States History Project

AP–Current Events Project (Replaces your Final Exam)
Throughout the year we have examined many problems and conflicts that arise in an interconnected world during current events discussions and other lessons. In this project you will solve one of these problems/conflicts. You will research the facts/statistics about a problem/conflict and find ways in which other people have tried to solve the problem/conflict. Then, you will come up with a realistic new solution for the problem/conflict and create a “product” that creatively represents your realistic solution to the problem or conflict.

  1. To do list:
    1. Choose problem/conflict
    2. Research the topic/find statistics (number facts) & other information

History research paper

Research Project: “Information Literacy Research Project”
You will work on a theme and format of your choice to investigate a topic in the history of technology between 1500-1980.  With the assistance of the Hagerty Library Research Librarians, I will provide the tools and guidance needed to develop the projects and to enhance your Information Literacy.
Topics might be: the technical innovations created or research conducted in a particular geographic region, institutions of science and technology, the individuals or communities working in technology, etc.
These are individual projects.  You will determine the type of your final product (essay, report, annotated bibliography etc).
To complete this research you will likely need to locate 1) one or more primary historical sources (documents written during the time you are focusing on and by scientists, or science administrators working in the city), 2) at least two secondary historical sources that place the primary sources in their historical context (works written by contemporary historians), and/or 3) a map of the region during the time period (or close to it).
My topic is about research of Albert Einstein.

Policemen of the World Thesis and Outline

Assignment 2.1:Policemen of the World Thesis and Outline
Due Week 7 and worth 70 points
After the Civil War and by the mid-20th century, the United States had become the dominant force in international relations. Some have argued that the United States’ military functions as the world’s “police.” This assignment covers the manner in which this shift occurred and the consequences the United States faces as a result of its status as “policemen of the world.” Using the Internet, research two (2) real-life international incidents from the past five (5) years in which:

  • The U.S. used military action abroad.
  • Controversy existed within the American public regarding U.S. involvement.
  • Controversy existed within the country or countries affected by U.S. involvement.

For the first part of this assignment you will create a thesis statement. A thesis statement is usually a single sentence somewhere in your first paragraph that presents your main idea to the reader. The body of the essay organizes the material you gather and present in support of your main idea. Keep in mind that a thesis is an interpretation of a question or subject, not the subject itself. (Note: Please consult the Purdue OWL Website with tips on how to construct a proper thesis; the website can be found at: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/545/01/
For the next part of this assignment you will create an outline of the main points you want to address in this paper. This will serve as the basis for your Assignment 2.2 Final Draft. (Note: Please use the Purdue Owl Website to assist you with this assignment; this website can be accessed at: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/engagement/2/2/55/
Part 1
1. Write a thesis statement that is one to two (1-2) sentences long in which you:

  1. State your thesis on the significance of the two (2) real-life international incidents that you have researched. Justify your response.

Part 2
2. Write a one to two (1-2) page outline in which you:

  1. Determine two to three (2-3) international events from the past five years that can be traced back to a foreign policy created after the Civil War.
  2. List three(3) aspects of US history since 1865 that have led to the US’s rise as a world super power policeman.
  3. List three to five (3-5) international incidents since World War II where America has taken on a policing role.
  4. List three to five (3-5) driving forces that fueled international policy decisions involving the international incidents you outlined previously. (Consider treaties, exit strategies, elections, wars, etc.)
  5. Use at least three (3) academic references besides or in addition to the textbook. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Identify and discuss the different ways that the Civil War, Reconstruction, and Industrialization after the Civil War have shaped America’s history.
  • Summarize and discuss the ways that formal policies of government have influenced the direction of historical and social development in the United States.
  • Recognize the major turning points in American history since the Civil War.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in contemporary U.S. history.
  • Write clearly and concisely about contemporary U.S. history using proper writing mechanics.

Civil War Paper and Presentation

Over 600,000 Americans lost their lives in the Civil War, with the Northern troops suffering higher losses. The North believed the sacrifice was worth it; the slaves were freed, and the Union was preserved. The South, on the other hand, began almost immediately to glorify the lost cause. They turned their generals into mythic heroes and looked wistfully back at the antebellum period. They almost regretted surrendering.

Historian Shelby Foote said,

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.

Burns, K. & Burns, R. (Writers). (1990). Episode 1: The cause (1861). In K. Burns (Producer), The Civil War. Arlington, VA: Public Broadcasting Service.

Write a 1,400-word paper in which you answer the following questions:

  • What do you think Foote meant in the quoted passage? How does the Civil War define Americans?
