British and French European countries were considered the biggest winners in the “race” to size African colonies in 1914. By 1885 the only two African countries to remain independent was Ethiopia and Liberia. (Doc A) John Ruskin announced in his lecture at Oxford University February 8, 1870 that the colonist “first aim” should be “to advance the power of England by land and by sea” This influence that John had for the European countries was a great impact for imperialism in Africa . Great Britain made about 3 million dollars from exports to South Saharan Africa in 1854 and this number increased to 20 million in 1900. This change in rate of growth for exports in Great Britain was a cause for competition in Africa among the European countries with the resources Africa was providing such as copper, zinc, lead, and coal.

President Rafael Correa quadrupled the budget from US$40 million to the US$150 million per year which it currently is in 2017. Across the country over 30 touristic projects are in development, representing around US$1.6 billion in investments since 2013 from local and foreign funding. The public policy towards tourism is based on five core values: Safety, Quality, Destinations and Products, Connectivity and Promotion.

This shows that London was heavily involved in the transatlantic trade in enslaved Africans, due to the transport links provided by the River Thames and the London ports. As a result of this, the number of ports in London grew enormously and the capital became the largest slaving port in Britain until the 1730s. More than 50 ships a year left London to sail to West Africa. Between 1699 and 1807, 12,103 slaving voyages were made from British ports, of which London ports mounted 3,351 journeys. The slave trade brought a great deal of wealth to the London ports, as in
Introduction Over the next 84 years Sub Saharan Africa is expected to account for 80% of the projected 5.3 billion increase in the global population. Through out this substantial population increase over the next few decades, Western Africa will see a population increase for the working age of 2.1 billion while the global increase will be only 2 billion. As, technology progresses and the standard of care becomes easier and more affordable, Western Africa is seeing declining fertility and mortality rates, resulting 64% of their population being that of the working age. With the rise of Western Africa’s working population, so does their potential for economic growth; when most developed nations face increased aging populations. The rapid expansion

During the 1950´s the economy was booming, and the fruits of this prosperity- new cars, suburban houses, and other consumer goods- were available to more people than ever before (“The 1950’s”). About 4 million babies were born each year during the 1950´s (“The 1950’s”). That’s nearly 36 million babies by 1959.As world war II ended, the G.I Bill subsidized low-cost mortgages for returning soldiers, which meant that it was often cheaper to buy a suburban house than it was to rent an apartment(“The 1950’s”).This provided more homes just outside city limits.During this time, African Americans had been fighting against racial segregation and the struggle against racism and segregation entered the mainstream of American life (“The 1950’s”). In the early 1950’s the lines between R&B, blues, and gospel became blurred (Handyside 8). R&B was revolutionized by adding a gospel sound into it.
