Edward Gibbon, The author of the decline in the fall of the Roman Empire, displays a different argument that yes discredits my thesis but is still an interesting and still very credible way of placing the fall of Rome on internal factors. Yet after reading this sources it did not further my understanding of the external problem but only question my research on the tax revenue or lack thereof hurting the ultimate power to control its borders. Considering that it was more of a social troubling with in the Empire itself rather than external problems which now after reading would explain a lot of the reasoning behind Civil War 's within the Roman state.61 another source that had a similar outlook on what Gibbon was trying to get a crossed in his book, was the Spanish priest Orosius, which puts the blame of the decline on perhaps the change from pagan to Christianity.21 along with going after religion, The example of outsourcing duties to defend the outer front tears to foreigners was considered a very internal problem in disagreement among Romans. However I do agree with Gibbon but the source just does not hold up any my
Overall, Richard views Carnegie as “little capitalist who urged presidents to do right things in Philippines, Panama and international diplomacy [but] had never done the right or moral thing as a businessman,” (Ernsberger). Richard displays this by including Carnegies expenses such as “$10 million to found the Carnegie Endowment for Peace” furthermore demonstrating that Carnegie did not spend his money on the business. However, Harold explains that Carnegies investments on developing the community is his way of repaying the community for their contribution to his
One thing that he has experience with is foreign affairs. Foreign affairs are when you have an alliance with a foreign country. George Washington had great advice and took time to create this long address to help us and no one took it into consideration and now, unfortunately, he would be disappointed with our country today. One of the pieces of advice in Washington’s Farewell Address had to do with foreign affairs. Washington’s advice was to not get strong alliances with foreign countries.
On my self-awareness test I knew how i communicate, and the test showed that too! I know how to communicate to others well, people often tell me that at first that im quiet but once I start talking you can never shut me up, I agree to that comment because once i talk something I’m interested in its hard for me to see other peoples opinions but I also give my opinions more
And not to my surprise David Rockefeller benefitted a lot from workers not having lots of power, as most mega rich are because a powerful workforce would mean less money in their pockets. Also, not to my surprise Prime Minister Mackenzie King didn’t help workers as much as he should of, I sense some behind the door workings here. When Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King was finished his time as the Prime Minister he was then gifted $100,000 in shares to Rockefeller companies, which I see as a bribe. Once again, as the video discussed Rockefeller benefited a lot from the workings of Prime Minister Mackenzie. Once finishing the video it made me reflect and think why are we only hearing about this now?
Moreover, they pointed out the fact that they enjoyed taking part in the activities regarding the distance education on accountancy as well as reading the research articles and publications on this subject. Although they emphasized that it was necessary to assign more resources on this subject, which had to be supported by all, they stated that this method was not as effective as the conventional one and that they did not find it reputable to receive their accountancy diplomas through this type of education. In another study where the attitudes of the instructors towards e-learning were examined, it was concluded that the attitudes of the instructors towards e-learning proved to be positive. Separately, it was determined that self-efficacy, self-learning, instructional leadership and the use of multimedia were the attitude-affecting factors (Liaw
It is important to study something in school that you enjoy but that is also useful in the real world. I have always been asked, “what's your major?”. I would answer art history and always got a response like, “what are you going to do with that?”. Most parents and students don’t feel that there is a good foundation from learning Art History. It is often heard from high school and college students (influenced by their parents) that to succeed you must major in science, technology, engineering, or business.
According to Marian Wright Edelman, a credible author from the Children’s Defense Fund in Washington, DC, in the article, Ending Childhood Poverty in America, the author discusses multiple ways to increase investments in children without increasing the debt (Edelman, 2016, S7). One of the main things mentioned in the article was reducing and limiting America's military spending. Military funds includes nuclear weapon spending and things such as military assistance and any other pentagon expenses, which costs the US 597.1 billion dollars (Amadeo, 2018). Though these expenses are controversial within the US, it is commonly protested and something liberals advocate for consistently. With that being said, author Edelman emphasizes the fact that the United States is accountable for about five percent of the entire world’s population but more than 37% of the world’s military expenses.
They were only colonized by an English-native nation which means that their target language is not really part of their culture. Lin and Cheung used the influence of popular culture in a adapting the format of a famous Cantonese TV Quiz Show as a form of assessment in phonemic knowledge. They also used Cooking Mama, a famous video game among the teens there in 2008, in teaching the language structure behind giving instructions. More topics in forming a language curriculum for EFL students were discussed in the paper. However, with the aforementioned parts of the paper, the use popular cultures in teaching language arts promote learning by context.
“Which high school do you want to go?” he asks. Although it sounds like one of the most basic questions that every teacher would ask to his students, the response to this question was not even close to being cliché. I did not target for a specific high school. I wanted to do my best in the exam and get into the school that I would prefer as everyone. People usually make fun of you when you mention them about your “high” goals, especially if you are getting educated in a public school.
