Latin America, Not Southeast Asia, Will Be the World's Economic Powerhouse Sunrise over Lake Atitlan, Guatemala via Flickr In today's post-recession, cost-competitive environment, Asian countries like India and China have positioned themselves as the natural heirs to U.S. economic dominance. However, as Americans and Europeans look east, fretting about China's economic outlook amidst rising debt, stagnating wages, and excess supply with weakened demand, changes are happening in South and Central America that could potentially have a game-changing impact on the economic landscape of the twenty-first century. The upsides Economic indicators are often viewed short-term, and to see why Latin America is uniquely positioned to assume a leading role in the economics of the twenty-first century, it's important to look at longer-term indicators that are slightly subtler, but which a great punch over the long run. Another measure of long-term economic health is the ability of a nation to feed its people, and still be left with enough products for exports.

Author and Page information Democracy (“rule by the people” when translated from its Greek meaning) is seen as one of the ultimate ideals that modern civilizations strive to create, or preserve. Democracy as a system of governance is supposed to allow extensive representation and inclusiveness of as many people and views as possible to feed into the functioning of a fair and just society. Democratic principles run in line with the ideals of universal freedoms such as the right to free speech. Importantly, democracy supposedly serves to check unaccountable power and manipulation by the few at the expense of the many, because fundamentally democracy is seen as a form of governance by the people, for the people. The ideals of democracy are so appealing to citizens around the world, that many have sacrificed their livelihoods, even their lives, to fight for it. However, even in established democracies, there are pressures that threaten various democratic foundations. Introduction Definition Democracy Democracy

Bombshell Report: Crooked Hillary Took $100 Million From Middle East Regimes: "Massive Conflicts Of Interest" Bombshell Report: Crooked Hillary Took $100 Million From Middle East Regimes: "Massive Conflicts Of Interest" How much more of Hillary Clinton’s scandals can America take? A bombshell report from The Daily Caller says the Clinton Foundation, a purported not-for-profit charity headed by Bill, Hillary and daughter Chelsea, has reportedly amassed a fortune from oil-rich mid east nations to the tune of $100 million. National Security Analyst Patrick Poole says the amount of cash donated to the Clintons is “simply unprecedented.” “These regimes are buying access. You’ve got the Saudis. A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation reveals that Bill and Hillary Clinton received at least $100 million from autocratic Persian Gulf states and their leaders, potentially undermining Democratic presidential candidate Hillary’s claim she can carry out independent Middle East policies. The benefits for mid east oil producers amount to billions of dollars in oil trade, and as you might expect, Hillary Clinton is more than happy to oblige – at the expense of American energy companies and workers: Also Read:

Max Penson - Anahita Photo Archive The best-known early Soviet photographers working in Central Asia were Russians. The artist Max Penson fled his hometown of Velizh in Belorussia during the pogroms of 1915, and settled in Kokand, where he taught drawing. By 1925 he had become a professional photographer working at the newspaper Pravda Vostoka. Penson was friendly with Rodchenko, Zelma and Sergei Eisenstein, and his work reflected the same modernist concerns. Eisenstein wrote in 1940: "There cannot be many masters left who choose a specific terrain for their work, dedicate themselves to it completely and make it an integrated part of their personal destiny… It is, for instance, virtually impossible to speak about the city of Fergana without mentioning the omnipresent Penson who traveled all over Uzbekistan with his camera. At the start of World War II, Penson's career was affected by growing anti-Jewish sentiments and he was given less important newspaper work. Max Penson - Anahita Photo Archive

Constructive (Source) Criticism - History Skills Let’s face it: teaching the critical use of sources is tough. This is primarily because it seems to take a lot of work to create a lesson based around source material. First of all, you need to find the sources, which usually takes a significant time, and it can be frustrating trying to find sources from various perspectives that are intelligible to our students. Secondly, it is difficult trying to think up good questions or engaging activities that get students to provide substantial answers. So with all of this work, and little guarantee of solid results, it is no wonder that teachers tend to avoid lessons based upon source work and choose instead to focus on lessons that convey historical information. However, it doesn’t need to be this way. Here are some tips to help create a source criticism lesson: Tip 1: Less is more You don’t need a lot of prepared sources to fill a lesson. Tip 2: Comprehension and Interpretation Spend genuine time deconstructing meaning from the quote.
Indirect Quotes - History Skills An indirect quote is when you have used an idea or opinion from a source but have paraphrased (summarised) it into your own words. This is extremely useful to highlight the main idea of a source and is usually a better method of showing information than using a direct quotation. How to paraphrase effectively: Carefully read the source and highlight important words. Use simple, modern terms if the original language is too complex but ensure that you do not change the overall meaning of the original text. Rewrite a simplified version of the sentence(s) using the altered vocabulary, but without altering the meaning. There are some general rules for using indirect quotes: Do not use double inverted commas Just before the full stop of the sentence in which you have used an indirect quote, place the in-text reference. For example:

By: Moses Kamuiru It has taken more than sixty years for the lie that led to Emmett Till’s lynching to be brought to light. Currently, Till’s family is calling for the reopening of his case. In 1955, Till then 14 years old, was abducted by two white men after Carolyn Donham, then 21, accused him of making sexual advances at her. Bryant and Milam stood trial for Till’s murder. In January, “The Blood of Emmett Till” was published revealing that Donham had committed perjury. Wheeler Parker, Till’s cousin, was with him when they encountered Donham in 1955. Moses Wright, Till’s great uncle, said that he saw two men hold the 14-year-old at gunpoint and took him inside a parked to a third person.
