James is still earning money, just sold a $13.4 million mansion in Florida, owns a 30,000 square foot mega mansion in Ohio, and just bought a $21 million vacation home in Brentwood. Hopefully he has a better backup plan for retirement than Walker did, because Antoine Walker once had homes and goods like that, too.
This feeling radiates though the leadership of the country and can be a causing factor of hostilities between nations. This on its own could not create a war as large as ww1, simply the world was set and staged for war and at the core nationalism was degrading the foundations of peace. Militarism, a competition between countries as to who has the largest military was a large factor in the scale of the war and the lives lost. Years prior to the war there was a steady growth in the military strength of all European nations especially those who were involved in ww1 and neighboring one another.

The Berlin games were supposed to be a German showcase and a statement for Aryan supremacy. The African Americans of Team U.S.A. faced a lot of challenges including the competition, and Hitler’s view of Aryan Supremacy, also known as Hitler’s ideal domination of white Europeans. Jesse Owens proved Hitler wrong, when he became the first American athlete to win four gold medals in a single Olympiad. Adolf Hitler was so stunned and angry that Owens had successfully defeated his German people, that he even walked out of the stadium.

By showing that both the Greeks and Persians were obsessed with revenge, which often lead to further conflict, Herodotus suggests that the Greco-Persian Wars would continue for decades after the Greeks won the invasion. The Siege of Sestos shows the Greek’s desire to be as powerful and dominant as the Persians once were through striving to conquer all territory that had previously been owned by the Persians. Herodotus includes this digression at the end of his narrative to connote that because the Athenians were now as powerful as the Persians were in the beginning of Histories, they would eventually fall, similar to the way the Persians did in the narrative. Therefore, Herodotus can end his narrative with the first book because he implies the outcome and continuation of the next thirty years of Greco-Persian

Some argue that furthering options for female athletics would starve already successful men’s programs. This is, unfortunately, true to some extent. George F. Will writes in his article “A Train Wreck Called Title Ix” on the Newsweek website that colleges terminated over 400 men 's athletic teams to produce precise proportionality between the genders enrollments and participation in athletics. Although growing women’s athletics did cause some shortage in funding for men it is illogical to deny rights to one people group for the sake of having excess in another group.
