Past politicians, legislation and political movements have changed the course of history in ways both big and small. Welcome to our blast to the past.
In 1933 it seemed that a four-month transition between an outgoing “lame-duck” president who was voted out in November and a new administration starting in March was too long.
When the Boston bombing trial dominated the media, its perpetrators, the Tsarnaev brothers, were associated with a geography scarcely known by Americans: Chechnya. If there was any examination in Chechnya’s history, rarely did it go beyond this: the bombers hailed from a Republic whose leader, Dudaev, had briefly made a bid for independence in 1992, the upshot of which was a catastrophic twenty-year-long war that decimated the local population.
Circassian history is known only in the broadest of outlines to regional specialists and not at all to most outside observers.
Our dear Queen’s (Elizabeth II) father, this King served our country through the Second World War. Unexpectedly becoming King after King Edward VIII abdicated, George VI became a conscientious and dedicated King, working hard to adapt to the role he was “suddenly thrown into.” With the support of his wife, Elizabeth, being reserved in nature with a deep religious belief, George VI overcame hardships --- both physical and political --- to become the King we admire today.
Born on January 15, 1929, we celebrate a holiday in honor of a man who was not a president, nor an explorer, nor a saint. Rather he was a Baptist minister and an American leader of the 1960s civil rights movement named for the Protestant Reformer Martin Luther after his father was inspired by a trip to Luther’s Wittenberg.
In light of what happened on January 6th we should be reminded of the great struggles that were fought in order to establish this nation. This is one such story.
In the seventies and eighties, teenagers automatically fascinated by the United States, the Vietnam War, Che Guevara, the Beatles, and so on. From a political point of view, the Vietnam War, the incursion of the then US President Richard Nixon, and the greatness of the American media, became a permanent attraction in the lives of many. Among them are Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, and his immortal work, All the Presidents Man, and Katherine Graham, a patient of The Washington Post. However, Neil Shihan, whose 'Paramvir Chakra' quality of heroism was based on journalism, remained relatively unknown. However, anyone who has read Neil's book, A Bright Shining Lie: John Paul von and America in Vietnam, at the right age, will have only immense respect and admiration for Shihan. It is not just a story of journalism that will appeal to media professionals. It is a charter. Be it an individual or a country; It's an amazing story of how once he got unlimited power, how he became a monster. But she made history. Journalism in America today stands on the same heroic history. The importance of this journalism, which has challenged Donald Trump and his shameless business from the first day of his presidency, has been underlined by Trump himself in the last few days. That confirmed Trump's ambush. Trump may have shaken American democracy. But the local media assured that it would not be too messy. Seeing that, Neil Shihan must have given up his life with satisfaction.
Barry Goldwater the man who too many is a mystery but is important in our timeline he inspire the regeneration of conservativism in America and led to a few of our best known politicians.
Over the years, the worldwide discourse on slavery was solely focused on the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the wrongdoings of American and European slave merchants. One alternative slavery tradition remains mostly unnoticed and is even treated as a taboo although it absolutely was a key part of African history and had a large impact on the continent.
The legacy of imperialist European powers in the underdevelopment of modern age Africa has had a significant impact on the country’s ability to grow and prosper. Africa is currently stuck in continuous destruction, but the true origins of this desolation existed prior to the 21st century and is the result of the arrival and usurpation of African colonies by European empires and powers. Many African colonies were exploited by the imperialist systems set up by European empires and are very much still in this position in the 21st century. One must understand that ‘underdevelopment’ does not refer to poverty alone but rather any blockade in the way of the development of a person or group whether it be mentally, culturally, politically, and economically (Rodney,1972 p.23-24).
History is the brief description of all the things happens in the past. So, this is very beneficial to read the history of past. Many of the circumstances and happenings are described briefly in the history books and also in some novels. Some of the people are very curious about reading the history and want to know that what happens in the next and how they overcome that situation. What make them courageous to do that thing and who gave them the idea of doing that. So, all these things are present in the history books and everyone can readout that and get inspiration of doing things and handle that also. By reading history we will be able to know about the facts. We know about the past; the history is full of incidents and realities and also different situations.
Federalism is a legal and political concept suggesting that law is best made in a twofold relationship: centrally and locally. Operative in many nations around the world under many different guises, federalism is centered on the principle that locality is key to effective governance. It holds that by making laws at a local level, the legislators can take advantage of local knowledge and opinion, whilst also lightening the load centrally for governance on the wider-ranging issues. This is not only bureaucratically significant but also politically in the sense that those in power through the majority of local areas will surely assume power overall, thus creating a fairer representation. Ultimately, in theory, federalism satisfies the will of the people more accurately than a purely central system of governance, which is one of the many reasons it has become so popular in recent years. In this article, we will discuss the main advantages of federalism as a legal order, and look at the main reasons for its growing popularity and strength across the world.
