- A Difficult Century Forming Of The World Government - 1,887 words
A Difficult Century - Forming Of The World Government According to Held, Today, the mechanisms we have for enforcing international law depend too much on whether a powerful geo-political force such as the U.S. is willing to commit resources to the problem. In such a situation, a big state will likely do what it desires, acting in its own interests. Recent developments in Kosovo, Chechnya, Iran and other states in some kind of a conflict have just proven the above statement. Presently the most important developments in international law and relations between states are, almost exclusively, dictated by the Great Powers. The General Assembly of the UN is probably the only part of UN that repres ...

Aids In Africa Horrors in the news Action on AIDS in Africa Imagine 40 million hungry and destitute orphans in sub-Saharan Africa by the year 2010 roaming the streets without schooling and work, prime candidates for the criminal gangs, marauding militias and child armies that have slaughtered and mutilated tens of thousands of civilians in countries like sierra Leone and Liberia in the last decade. This is the kind of nightmare that prompted the united nations security council to convene yesterday for an unprecedented examination of health issue- the global spread of ADIS, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, where experts predict that more people will die off AIDS, in the next decade than have ...

- Ghana - 498 words
Ghana The Gold Coast, now known as Ghana, is one of many civilizations of Africa. It was a British Colony until March 6, 1957, when it became independent as the State of Ghana. In 1471, the Portuguese invaded this area and became involved in gold trade, giving the region the name, The Gold Coast. They built forts to protect their monopoly of gold trade from merchants representing other nations. In 1642, the Dutch West India Company captured all Portuguese strong posts and they devoted their interests in slave trading rather than gold trading. In the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries, the Gold Coast was one of the chief West African sources of slave export. At the beginning of the Nineteen ...

... found allot farther inland. A few centuries later the lives of these peaceful inhabitants was abruptly disturbed by the savage, war-like carib indians. They began to brutally conquer all of the natives of the other islands as well. But, one day it got even worse for the poor Arawaks. Christopher Columbus, under the Spanish flag, landed there in 1492. This occurrence eventually led to the extinction of the Arawak people in Jamaica. Columbus arrived on May 5, 1494 at St. Ann's Bay with his three ships, the Santa Maria, the Nina and the Pinta. As he landed he remarked "the fairest island that eyes have beheld .... all full of valleys and fields. He named the country "St. Jago" or "Santiago" ...

- Lassa Virus - 650 words
Lassa Virus The Lassa virus is a vulgar virus with a high mortality rate and an expensive cure. Lassa was strange to me because I have never heard of the virus before. As I was reading in my research, I began to realize the risk the virus has on people. Lassa was first discovered, in humans, in a village in northern Nigeria (Andrechek). Lassa outbreaks have been reported in Guinea, Senegal, Mali, Sierra Leone and Zaire, which are all countries in West Africa (Andrechek). There have been reports of the Lassa virus out side of West Africa but those were in health care workers who had previously worked in that area. There is an estimate of 200,000 to 400,000 cases of Lassa Fever annually, thous ...

- Olaudah Equiano - 1,076 words
Olaudah Equiano Life of Olaudah Equiano is a detailed story about the life of a well-educated slave published. One section of the story in particular describes one of his many experiences in the New World with one of his owners. This narrative is a very powerful one telling about the treatment of slaves, but also many of the good things Equiano experienced while he was a slave. He gives a seemingly honest and unbiased account to his travels abroad. Equiano was born in 1745 in an Ibo village located in Nigeria called Essaka and in 1756 captured by British slave traders. He was brought to the West Indies and later to a Virginia Plantation. During the Seven Years War he was present in many of t ...

... d 23000 tons of food in that year. Cereal commercial imports about 25000 tons and food aid is about 140 tons(fao.org/giews/english/basedocs/rwa/rwaaidle.s tm) What happened in Rwanda is that in 1995 the amount of food aid and cereal commercial imports was greater than their food production. As a result, the population growth in Rwanda threatened peoples lives because the food production could not satisfy all the people needs. In addition, food and resources are not often distributed evenly among the human society; this means that poor people are the ones who will be starving. Also, most of the food that grows in developing countries is for the exportation to developed countries, resulting ...

- World Influence On The Modernization Of Africa - 1,868 words
World Influence on the Modernization of Africa World Influence on the Modernization of Africa Developing Political Systems The way countries, nations or states act and base their policies on many times reflect what their past was like. This is very true in the case of Africa. The only problem is that Africa is said to have no history. This just means that Africas many cultures did not affect the way imperialists and other influences acted towards the huge continent. Everything was based on their interests and consequently this meant that the way of dealing with Africa in every way was based on Western traditionalists. To this we must answer the question how has the Western World affected Afr ...
