Since the 19th century sports in Singapore played a vital role in engaging the different ethnic groups. This was made possible through the various communal groups such as Chinese swimming club, Indian association, Malay football club and others. They had a role to bring their people together and promote sports in Singapore (1). As Singapore gained her independence in 1965, the government used sports participation to build a robust and rugged society. Sports was used as a tool to bring the people of various races, religion and background together (2).
These games were a stylized reflection of the Ancient Olympics, in that they took the basic concept of the games and altered them to reflect Coubertin’s modern views and values; foremost among them were nationalism and amateurism(pg14). Nationalism was intended to be apart of the games in that each competitor would take pride in competing and winning for his home country.
Germany lost opportunities to fix its’ economy because of losing land, and Germans wanted the land back, which is exploited by Hitler by saying he was in favor of war do they could get the land back. Paying reparations caused Germans to lose self-respect and made them angry. Hitler again exploits the Germans displeasure by discontinuing the payments. Again, the Germans are exploited by Hitler by restoring pride when they had been humiliated for being blamed for the war. This caused many Germans to accept the Nazi regime and probably join the army.
The lord protector wished to spread Protestantism and a war between Protestant nations was against his ideals. As a result of the treaty, he secured English commerce and prevented the restoration of the Stuarts by the aid of the Dutch or any other foreign country. Cromwell’s aspiration to expand England’s possessions overseas and extend English commerce suffered a temporary setback. He launched an expedition against the Spanish Islands to attack Hispaniola. Due to the poor preparations of the troops, the attack was a complete failure.
Moving forward on the Protection reason is that he was a weak man with a bold attitude. He knew it Stronger armies than him like the USA or the British would be able to take him down. Tojo didn’t want to be in danger so he made Japanese Civilians his soldiers, with the influence of Adolf. Hideki Tojo thought that Hitler should be trusted as they had the same view on multiple things. For example, they both agreed that people are wrong if they do not believe the same religion, have the same color of skin, or a different sexualality.
Irish integration to America was a very important part of the immigration history of this nation. James R. Barrett, professor at the University of Illinois, writes The Irish Way: Becoming American in the Multiethnic City, an account of the story of second and third generation Irish immigrants whose experiences in America changed their lives in more ways than they could have imagined. The book primarily focused on the social history through; their shaky relationship with African Americans, politics and “The Machine”, religious opposition from other immigrants, and their strife in the workplace. Thoroughly developed with illustrations and facts, this book provides new insight into the topic of “Americanization” among immigrants coming to our nation.
It’s about Irish War of Independence-but interestingly the director is British (Ireland was ruled by Britain). It questions about the cruelty they made, not about who is the good and bad. By showing the conflict between brothers in different side, sensitive historical event was dealt in less provocative way and more tragic way. We can see a little peek of director’s intention at the scene when Damien shots his friend’s heart saying “I hope this Ireland we’re fighting for is worth it.”; the difference of ideas cannot justify the act of killing. *Irish War of Independence: In 1916, Ireland Republicans proclaimed the Ireland’s independence from the United Kingdom, and constituted IRA (Irish Republican Army).
Williams addresses how the Irish-American community made efforts to create or negotiate an image for themselves. By the 1910s, “according to [Thomas] Cripps, the trade papers, staffed heavily by Irish Americans, were on the lookout for ethnic slurs, going so far as to evaluate films with Irish themes for their appropriateness for Irish neighborhood theaters. These Irish reactions coincided with the onset of the decline in ethnic humor that…had been the dominant form of vaudeville comedy from 1875 to 1905” (Williams 1996, p. 201). Williams continues on to explain that the new urban Irish community were pushing strongly for respectability and upward mobility in sociopolitical spheres. The songs being written and produced after the turn of
Here, the reader can see that Serb nationalism also known as Pan-Slavism was surely a negative force in unifying people. Nationalism this time did not unify people but divided the Slavs from the Austro-Hungarian empire and caused the assassination of the Archduke in Sarajevo. This assassination lead to one of the deadliest wars ever known to mankind, World war I. Nationalism was surely a negative force in unifying a country it divided people like the Slavs and Belgians from empires such as the Austro-Hungarian empire. Moreover, Nationalism comes with that pride that one’s country is superior to others and this pride causes conflicts between nations.
Background Statement In this case, the major problem was Guinness trying to find the best way to position themselves on a global stage. Guinness struggled with deciding whether diversified or undiversified marketing would be the best fit for them. Guinness’ challenge was to also find a global KBB that would connect with consumers worldwide; as well as making sure that it went with their three values – power, goodness, and communion. “Guinness brings out your inner strength,” was the KBB that Guinness’ newly appointed Global Brand Director decided to go with. Guinness found their marketing calling by using sport as an advertising platform.
Bacon decided the way to gain power and to change the laws for his own advantage was to remove Berkeley and his supporters. His methods were brilliant, though. He knew he could gain support from the lower classes by claiming Berkeley was oppressing the poor. He also played on the fear of Indians, religious heresy, oppressive taxation, and disloyalty to the king, all of which would incite strong
Also the barons would have been seen as undreaming the king’s power and authority. Henry took control of the situation by demolishing the illegal castles built in Stephens’s reign the barons saw this as an attack on baronial power but the king was asserting his authority and keeping the barons on a tight leash to prevent them from becoming too powerful. Furthermore Henry had the problem of resolving the splits in the country which had caused confusion. During Stephens reign there were resentments from supporters. Henry had to regain the support of his people as he would not have been able to
When the outsiders made the journey to Ellis Island, they were expecting the United States to be a safe haven compared to the turmoil that sliced Europe into the Allies and Central Powers; instead, they were thrust into the tumultuous culture of the States during the war. Immigrants had to figure out how to make the shift from supporting radical ideals to living in a democratic country. Even then, they also needed jobs. It was not uncommon for the only available jobs for these migrants were those that would require them to be berated for being “scabs.” The increase in working radical foreigners (Document C) paired with the radical ideals they brought from their home countries made it rather difficult for them to blend in with American lifestyles. The immigrants’ beliefs and inherent beliefs in communism and other extreme political views along with

The IRA campaign was justifiable in the eyes of the rebels since it was based on political and moral grounds. The IRA wanted the British out of Ireland. They viewed Great Britain as their enemy since they came in and took their land by force. Armed struggle against the British was the only means necessary to expel them from Ireland (Alonso, 2001). The IRA wanted to reside in a united Ireland free from British influence and force was one of the ways to achieve that goal (Page & Smith, 2000).
