Differences In Tradition And Culture - 493 words
Differences in Tradition and Culture The word Tradition is a very vast one. Every country, city, and land has its own tradition and culture that is entirely different from each other. People, generally after they have picked up a certain tradition, find it very difficult to adapt to another tradition or culture. This reluctance to easily adapt a new tradition is the main reason as to why there are many differences among people, due to their tradition. Some people, refuse to accept another tradition because their views are different and they treat all basic activities differently, "If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer." (Robert Le ...

Even with opening the borders between the member states and establishing a common currency the work is not done yet. The question often asked is how to achieve a sense of community in the different member states with their different cultures. Is it even possible? How can the goal of feeling as an European be achieved? Should people give up their national pride? To make Europe one unit is it necessary to have one language? ...

From his point of view an Assembly of Cultures can play a decisive role in the emergence of a genuine European conscience, which would constitute the best defense of its people and of the community. The European Union has not taken the responsibility of guarding Europeans Culture, to protect a human being, his heritage, his rights, and his creativity. Another point of view is to achieve a European Union beyond the economic level, without becoming victims of their own success, European nations have to step back from the idea of nation and start working toward a plural and cultural c ...

... ich is often also referred to as an "international bond". These bonds do not necessarily have to have any 'special' features, as one is automatically built in. As with regular bonds, the holder will receive interest payments throughout the year and the face value when the maturity date is reached. However, when purchasing an international bond, what you are actually doing is investing in another country's currency. Consequently, you must take both the bond price and the currency rate into account. This additional 'investment within an investment' can greatly increase your profit; however, there is also the risk that the country's currency might decline in worth, which in some instances c ...

Author: Soranno, Valerie - Discount Store News Title: Customer profiles are key to loyalty, February 8, 1999 The author makes a very good point in that understanding the drivers behind customer loyalty can be an important step in increasing earnings and profits. I agree in the fact that you need to sell products that your customers value and need in order to be successful. Although that concept seems simplistic, companies still try to market products that it thinks the customer values.

The Effects of Foreign Direct Investment on the Home Country Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) could be defined as a minimum 10 percent investment of equity or capital by a firm based in one country (home economy) to an enterprise resident in another country (the host economy). The new entity then becomes a multinational enterprise (MNE). Many companies prefer FDI to exporting to gain access to new or larger markets, gain cost advantages in the host country and in response to trade barriers. There has been significant global growth of FDI since 1982. Although the United States is the largest home and host country of FDI, outflows have exceeded inflows.

An Affair Of Honor Woodrow Wilson - 829 words
An Affair of Honor: Woodrow Wilson and the Occupation of Veracruz is an in-depth look at the policies Wilson followed to occupy Mexico during the reign of General Victoriano Huerta. The invasion happened in 1914, when military troops docked at the harbor of Veracruz and took over the city. The occupation became a learning experience for our Nation and especially our President in foreign affairs in helping a Democracy get started in another country. The author conveys his thoughts in one passage Wilson, however, clothed American aggression with the sanctimonious raiment of idealism. In insisting upon the morality of his acts, he aroused both the hatred and the scorn of the Mexicans-hatred ove ...

My Worst And Best Friend - 1,497 words
Language, for me, is a way of communicating with people. It is wonderful to speak and realize that other people understand you. However, when you are in a foreign country, communication begins to be very difficult, above all if you do not know the language. In my opinion it is not easy to learn a language and if you are older you will have a lot more difficulty. Children have fewer difficulties because they are exposed to learning at all moments. They have to learn because they know nothing about life, and they have a great interest in imitating what they hear on. On the other hand, older people know a lot of things, they have less space in their minds to keep more information. For this reas ...

English Lakota Women And Black Boy - 1,414 words
When looking back on the books that I have read there is one thing that I noticed common in all the books. It seems to me that a bad comes from coming from a family without a father figure. There is much negativity that comes from living a life with no father figure. The first book that we read was Lakota Women. Mary Crow Dog was born and raised without a father figure in her life. The next book that we read was Black Boy. Richard Wright faces the disappearance of his father at a very early age. Then we read Latin Deli where Judith Cofer walks in on her father having an affair with another woman.

Major Sources Of Discord Between The Bolshevik And European States - 1,793 words
... 18, near the end of World War I, forces from the United States, France, and Britain gathered in Russia to "expand the eastern front" against the Germans (p. 84). The purpose of these interventions at first was to use Russian soil to win World War I, not to support either side of an ideological civil war that had just begun and was occurring simultaneously (p. 84). Before Russia made several questionable decisions in World War I, the ideology behind the Bolshevik regime was not challenged heavily by the west (Harris). Ulam states, "Until November 1918, the Allied intervention in Russia had nothing ideological about it. It was designed simply to give the Western Powers' armies in France, w ...

Fascist Germany The Result Of Instability - 1,953 words
The 1930s were turbulent times in Germany's history. World War I had left the country in shambles and, as if that weren't enough, the people of Germany had been humiliated and stripped of their pride and dignity by the Allies. Germany's dream of becoming one of the strongest nations in the world no longer seemed to be a possibility and this caused resentment among the German people. It was clear that Germany needed some type of motivation to get itself back on its feet and this came in the form of a charismatic man, Adolf Hitler. Hitler, a man who knew what he wanted and would do anything to get it, single-handedly transformed a weary Germany into a deadly fascist state. In order to understa ...

Mad About The Insanity Defense - 1,436 words
Today in our legal system, there are many questionable defense tactics. They are designed to protect the rights of the charged, and further the cause of justice. However, in many cases this betterment of justice has been taken too far, and thus pleas such as "Temporary insanity" are born. Indeed, as will be proven, the insanity defense in itself has been stretched nearly to its breaking point. The insanity defense will be critically examined, here, and proven in some cases necessary while others have no right using the plea. The history of the insanity defense goes back as far as government. Yet as Thomas Maeder stated in his book Crime and Madness, the Origins and Evolutions of the Insanity ...

Flag Desecration - 911 words
Flag desecration is not American. People who burn the American flag lack respect for themselves, America, and the many people who have died to preserve American freedom. The people who desecrate the American flag have no right to call themselves Americans. They are unpatriotic, two faced, cowards, and worse of all un-American (communist). To be patriotic a person must love and defend his own country against all foreign and domestic threats. These unpatriotic people are two faced. They live in America with all its freedoms, and yet desecrate the most important symbol which holds America together: the flag. The way flag burners go about desecrating the American flag shows that they are not tru ...
