He argued that since other countries did not have this type of power the Soviet Union would be intimidated by the atomic bomb (Bernstein, 100). Impressing the Soviet Union was the secondary reason of why the United States used the atomic bomb. (Bernstein, 96) Since President Roosevelt had chose to exclude the Soviet Union in the plans of the atomic bomb, when President Truman took over he chose to do the same. (Bernstein, 95) President Truman wanted to trust Stalin, as he hoped for a postwar relationship with the Soviet Union. As Truman said in his diary on July 18,1945, Stalin wanted to cooperate with the U.S in peace but it would be harder because Truman was misunderstood in Russia and Stalin was misunderstood in the United States.
Often Soviets had spies that were in pursuit of the American technology, blueprints, and set up of their Atomic cities, “It appears, in other words, that Beria [The Soviets] wanted the American way.” Soviets were very aware of the American atomic project and had an extensive spy ring that penetrated the ring of information, despite the American efforts to keep the project top secret. Though the cold war, by common belief, had technically not began yet, the tension between the two countries had already begun in the race to create the first atomic weapon. As said by Kate Brown, “Intelligence on the American bomb hurtled Soviet and American leaders towards postwar rivalries on the cusp of their joint victory.” This was a period of time that was largely focused on the relationship that the United States had with Germany and Japan in the Second World War, not one focused on the bubbling relationship with the Soviets. Though this early rivalry could easily be marked as the beginning of the high tensions and the race towards the atomic bomb becoming an identifying marker of the Cold War. The interactions and the competition to be the first country with an atomic weapon is what drove the United States success, which is often attributed to the sole intelligence of the
Meanwhile, the only one that knew the codes to recall the plane was the crazy general named Ripper. The Cold War is a term given to the intense relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union. This intensity was during the period after the Second World War. The clash between these two countries was due to several reasons. First of all, both of these countries were trying to end each other use of nuclear weapons.
Ancient China was a highly developed civilization whose many dynasties each had some kind of significant development, let it be in trade, invention, art, religion, government, or architecture. Two dynasties in particular, however, marked the Golden Age of Chinese history. This period is known for its large economic revolution. The two dynasties were called the Tang & Song Dynasty. The Tang & Song Dynasties were experiencing a Golden Age due to the fact that they had a fair system in granting government positions, brought highly advanced inventions to the world, and had very intricate architecture.
Previously used for nuclear weapons known as “Runit Dome”. This last text links up with my connections because it was held in eniwetok which was once used for nuclear weapons. This links up with my connection as well as text 2 “Runit dome”. because they both involve with eniwetok linking up with nuclear warfare. Although war may be beneficial towards a country, it has detrimental effects on politics and the society.
The chariot was a great way of exporting and importing goods into and out of China. Ancient Chinese chariots could go up to an estimated 35 to 40 mph. This meant that China could economically grow fast. The Ancient Chinese chariot was important because it was a major advancement from Camels and Cavalry. It helped people travel in greater quantities and with greater speeds.
The effect of pH on oxygen (O2) consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) production is worthy of investigation because human-caused acid rain is at large at many countries and may give clarity to other events that acid rain triggers. In 2005, over 250 cities in China were struck with acid rain and caused the economic loss of billions of yuan (“GEOCASES: Case Study”). Because of this, the pH value of rain in China became less than 5.0, which is considered acidic (“GEOCASES: Case Study”). This acid rain was blamed on the discharge of SO2 from power plants and coal factories and not only caused China economic problems, but also detrimental effects on vegetation and plants. The connection between acid rain and damaged vegetation has led us to wonder: How do the pH levels of 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 affect the rate in which O2 is consumed and CO2 is produced during germination and cellular respiration in broad
Queen Victoria and Prince Albert both wanted to share the knowledge that Great Britain held with the nations of the world. The exhibition led to an increase in trade and immense competition, which would fuel the economy into present day. The event also celebrated the acceptance of Prince Albert as part of the British people, not just as a foreigner. The Crystal Palace is still a symbol of the Victorian era (Felder 135) and the impacts it had in its own territory, and around the world as

During this time, the economy increased dramatically and city populations increased. New forms of technology were created to help the american people progress and live more comfortably. People also became more involved during this age. Many people voted and voter participation increased during the rise of industrialism.
The United States American expansionism in the 1890's was motivated by the search of new markets and investment opportunities. Businesses created the expansion because the economy was so prosperous at this time. Mechanization and mass production allowed the industries in America to grow, which led to the growth of business, consumer goods and the overall American corporation. According to the textbook, the businesses interest shaped diplomatic and military strategy. Additionally, farm production increased, transportation systems improved and railroads were a significant factor.
