To begin with, we have and still are advancing our technology exponentially. For example, in the mid-20th century, computers and mainframes took up the space of entire rooms. Nowadays, any modern phone that came out in the last 10 years is equivalent to an ‘80s supercomputer. In other words, the technology we have today is generally hundreds or thousands of times better than what we had half a century ago. Secondly, we are moving toward more clean and efficient forms of energy and transportation.
The article When Does Old Age Begin?, asserts, “Beginning at the turn of the 20th century, life spans started steadily rising, from 45.7 years to 88 years, now,” (Fisher). If looked at old age in the view of lifespan, in the twentieth century the highest age for people to survive was about the age of eighty-eight years, as Fisher claims. Even though people may be able to live to be close to ninety, the poem Ulysses, narrated by the heroic Ulysses himself,
Love, the age old story. When has the telling of it not existed? Samuel Richardson's Pamela (written in 1790) perhaps even led the way for the modern love novel. Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, in the 1800s, further influenced the genre. However, it wasn't until the 1930s British publishers, Mills and Boon, stepped into the picture and things started to heat up.
An empire lasts about 250 years or 10 generations from the early pioneers has passed through clearly identifiable stages. Glubb calls these the six ages to explain the lifespan of an empire.

Next, is the age of conquests where vision who conquer new territories, perhaps taking over the remnants of an earlier collapsed civilization. Then, the new empire will enters an age of commerce.
Chiang Kai-shek and modernization Whenever someone uses the term “Modern China” today, one might immediately think of the rapidly developing China after the economic reform proposed by Deng Xiaoping in the late 1970s. In European, however, modernization had already begun by the early 20th century, and it brings up a question: Had the Chinese authority that ruled at that time tried to do anything to modernize China? From 1926 to 1928, the Kuomintnag(KMT), literally means the Nationalist Party, which mainly led my the generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, had launched the Northern Expedition and eventually reunified China. The success ended the chaotic warlord era and allowed the centralization of power. The reunification also brought China a relatively stable environment for modernization which lasted ten years.
Introduction Contemporary art means "art that has been and continues to be created during our lifetimes." There is a certain amount of overlapping between "Contemporary" and "Modern" art. Thus: Modern Art: Art from the Impressionists (say, around 1880) up until the 1960s or '70s. Contemporary Art: Art from the 1960s or '70s up until this very minute. 1970 is the cut-off point for two reasons.
So, it can be said that S. Martin Lipset made a comparison between early America and today’s emerging nations to find issues mutual to them as new nations. This was absolutely a new type of nation-state, since its people were not all of the same culture, ethnicity, and language, as had been supposed to be the incident in the previous defining of the concept of nation-state. S. Martin Lipset is also focusing on American’s later historical periods, picking for discussion as critical incidents, religious institutions and trade unions. Ultimately, Lipset is comparing the developments in political area in multiple industrialized democracies, including the United States. However, when a nation is building another nation/s may be destroyed.
Triggering Factors of the Industrial Revolution The industrial revolution is a historical event that was primarily started in the 18th century in Britain. This was a transition period, when revolution occurred with the replacement manual works into new technologies invented by the scientists of that era, thus it is named as “Industrial revolution”. As Stearns Chapter Outlines of world history states, this was a slow process of event that took many years to revolutionize completely (5). The time of Industrial revolution was started probably from1760 to 1790 and ended in 1840s, suggests historians. Still, there are many arguments exist among historians regarding so-called “Industrial revolution”, even in its terminology as “Industrial revolution”.
The theory of the transition demography based, in the middle of the twentieth century, on the demographic growth in industrialized (developed) countries; shows overall the settlement growth on the planet. Indeed, the world population went from a very long period of slow (weak) growth (the origin of humanity in the eighteenth century) to a new period of low growth (the twenty-first century and beyond) after a transitional period of two centuries (XIX and XX centuries) during which it experienced a more and more rapid population growth. The twentieth century is the most spectacular century, that of all changes and all (breach, break off) breaks. The four classic stages of the transitional demography as outlined by demographers are as indicated by the table below and thus offer: The demographic transition (table) If a such human population growth came to happen in a century, it is because major qualitative changes have occurred in the world population which they radically changed the living conditions in general and that of reproduction especially. The transitional population growth has occurred at varying times, according to the countries and regions of the world.
