The book, The Massacre at El Mozote is a significant book that is bringing the story about the Massacre in El Mozote out of the dark and into the light.The book is generally about how the Massacre happened and who was involved in it all. The things that are talked about in it are the El Salvadoran Civil-War, Terrorism and the people are involved in it all. The author, Mark Danner was trying to explain about how this all happened and how the rest of the world responded and reacted to it. Throughout the whole book there were questions appearing like, How did the U.S. play in the role to fight communism? What were people’s responses to Terrorism? Questions like these are significant to the book because they help us understand what everyone was doing in the book and helps the reader understand what happened. The book is organized as topically because the chapter title will be about what the chapter is about. Like chapter 4, “Hammer and Anvil”, they talked about what that is and how it relates to the story itself.
It poses no surprise that many retailers sell diamonds. According to Statista, in 1960 the average one carat diamond cost about $2700, fast forward fifty-five years it is now worth ten times that amount. Although all diamonds must meet the same standards and are rated equally there is a justification for spending thousands more to make the purchase at Tiffany’s versus Costco for instance. Costco is well known as a muti-billion-dollar wholesaler selling products in a variety of categories, while staying selective of the products they carry. Costco carries 4,000 difference products while supermarkets have about 30,000. Costco manages its risk through diversity. This is the place you can purchase groceries and a diamond ring all in one place. I understand how one would purchase a diamond in Costco versus Tiffany’s due to the substantial savings and the companies relaxed return policy. But saving thousands of dollars by making such a purchase in Costco can prove to be a poor decision in the long run.
Saturn is the second largest planet and sixth number planet of our solar system. Saturn is a gas giant made up of hydrogen and helium. It is big enough to hold more than 760 Earths within it, and is second massive planet after Jupiter, roughly 95 times Earth 's mass. However, Saturn has the lowest density among all the planets of solar system .It spins faster than any other planet except Jupiter which help Saturn with its magnetic field which is about 578 times more powerful than Earth 's. Although Saturn has at least 62 moons but its largest moon, Titan, is slightly bigger than Mercury, and is the second-largest moon in the solar system after Jupiter 's moon Ganymede (our moon is fifth largest).Although it is the most interesting planet

Having a weak central government created a whole new set of problems. After analyzing the Articles of Confederation the weaknesses outnumbered the strengths. Such as states not having to obey the laws and ignore taxations because they had no authority to enforce them. Congress did not have the power to collect taxes from the each of the states, that was one major weakness especially during the Revolutionary War because instead of getting the money they had to ask the states for money and the states said no. At that point the government should have put their foot down and enforced a new law, their troops were fighting for their freedom and these people didn’t care.Instead the government in response had no money to pay for the war so they printed money causing inflation and soon money became worthless. Colonist had
The first main cause contributing to the Revolution can be cited as the imposition of various harsh acts and taxes to generate more revenue from the American colonies in order to meet the expenses of the French-Indian wars. Sugar Act, Stamp Act, etc. are some examples of these acts. With these impositions of such unacceptable acts, the unrest in the colonies started brewing which ultimately led to the great Revolt. Boston Massacre was another important reason/cause and contributing factor behind The American Revolution. All these causes were fuelled by the fact that no representatives were allowed to represent American colonies to raise their voice in the British parliament, and their needs were continually suppressed by the British administration.
Stabbing someone in the back is a relatively simple task, especially when they are too immature to know what hit them. The civil war in Sierra Leone, lasting from 1991 to 2002, was one of the most gruesome civil wars to date. Unfortunately, it is also overwhelmingly unknown to many American adolescents. This horrifying ordeal in Sierra Leone featured hundreds of children becoming mass murderers, whilst still in their pre-teen years. In hopes of becoming a feared rebel faction, the Revolutionary United Front begins pillaging towns throughout Sierra Leone; thus, turning their back on the peaceful residents and farmers across the country. Memoirs like, A Long Way Gone, by Ishmael Beah, and The Bite of the Mango, by Mariatu Kamara, give the world a first hand look at the hideous truths and hard-hitting of the nightmares that took place in their home country of Sierra Leone. At an unfathomably young age, Ishmael Beah and Mariatu Kamara both suffer because of the sting of betrayal, but Ishmael’s betrayal is more damaging.
The Canadian Shield is arguably the best land form region. Tectonic forces and glaciation have combined to shape the Canadian shield, making it different from other Canadian landform regions, directly affecting economic activity.
Revolutionary can be defined as revolts that support political revolution across the board, or pertaining to everyone. What began our nation was known as the American Revolution, although how revolutionary was it? The American Revolution was a war fought between the American colonies, who wanted independence, and Great Britain, who owned and were superior to the American colonies. After the war, the underdog colonies won their independence and began to plan how their government would be run. It is true that America altered from political, social, and economic standpoints, such as transforming into citizens, slaves becoming a fraction of a free person, and economic instability arising, but some of their ideals didn 't apply to everyone.
The Treaty of Versailles between Allies (Britain, France, Russia) and Germany was perhaps the most important peace treaty that concluded WWI. It was signed six months after armistice, by defeated Germany, in Versailles, France, 1918. While it’s importance in dealing with Germany post war must be recognized, the Treaty of Versailles was ultimately a dictated one sided peace.

Keratoconus is a disease on the eye that doesn 't allow the patient to see beyond six inches. These patients only have the ability to see throughout one eye. This creates a one-sided perspective on the world, a one-sided view on humanity. A one-sided perspective could have a dangerous effect on a person 's mindset. Keratoconus is only apparent in about three in every two thousand people, although we continue to place ourselves in the same position. Only hearing one side of the story is equivalent to only seeing one side of the world. A single story is the idea of just hearing one side, just listening to the prosecution, just hearing one side of an argument. A single story brings the dangers of a discriminatory perspective upon the world.
Globalization has indeed impacted human rights worldwide; however as to whether the impact is negative or positive depends on which part of the world one finds him/herself. “Human Right” by definition “is the right which is believed to belong to every person”. The central idea of globalization is for businesses to develop international influence and operate on an international scale.
B.Human rights violations are evident in the Dominican Republic of Congo, which stems from a history of poverty; our only hope is that organizations such as Pact continue to ensure that the materials mined in Congo are able to be traced and follow international laws.
