When war is in progress, most of the time the poor are demanded to go to war because the wealthy groups have the money and power to escape from death. “ To give people a choice between two different parties and allow them, in a period of rebellion, to choose the slightly more democratic one was an ingenious mode of control.

This is just the beginning of the differences of the Japanese and Americans in terms of technology. The Japanese were unable to invent new and improved technology nearly as quickly as other countries because of the lack of resources, the freedom to explore new options, and the ability to share ideas was limited. The struggle for resources may have been one of the biggest difference between the Western world and Japan. Since Japan was an island, much of their food sources came from the sea, and a substantial amount of the ground is unstable because of the surrounding water. There was very little coal and important metals on this island, which slowed down its industrialization.

Two factors that affect Nashville’s climate are the proximity to water and the urban island effect. The Cumberland River, which winds through the heart of Nashville, is one factor that affects Nashville’s climate. The Cumberland River begins in Harlan County, KY and flows for 688 miles before joining with the Ohio River northwest of Paducah, KY. Water bodies provide a source of moisture for the land masses and have a moderating affect on the climates of the land masses near them. In the summer the water from the Cumberland River acts like an air conditioner to keep the air temperatures cool and in the winter, the water acts like a heater to keep the temperatures from getting too cold.
