Hola mamá, Me gusta mucho este semestre hasta ahora. Estoy tomando clases de español, historia y educación. Me gusta mucho mi clase de historia porque mi profesora es muy inteligente. No es aburrida.

Pero, mamá, no me gusta mi clase de educación. Mi profesor es mu aburrida y nunca me ayuda con la tarea. Hablaré contigo mas tarde, mamá. Adiós. Abrazos, Danielle
What were the major factors leading to the outbreak of WWI?
Although World War I officially began with the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, there were many factors that heightened tensions before the war. One of the main preceding factors was the concept of Nationalism. Nationalism created clear divisions between nations in Europe and made citizens gain a strong pride in their nationality. Bosnians were very nationalistic and wanted to separate from Austria-Hungary to join Serbia before the assassination of the archduke. Another factor was militarism. Nations were building up their armies and weapons to create highly militaristic states that were ready for war and to defend their country. Lastly, the most important factor, was the alliances that were created before the war that continued on throughout the war. France, Britain and Russia became allies under the Triple Entente while Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy joined under the Triple Alliance. These alliances became crucial during the war and heightened tensions between the two groups before the war.
By the mid-17th century in newly discovered America, colonization was well underway, particularly by the British Empire. Describe the differences in settlement between the New England British colonies and the Chesapeake Bay colonies.
British settlement of the American colonies occurred quickly throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. However, settlement was not the same everywhere it occurred. There were stark differences in the way the New England colonies and the Chesapeake colonies were established. The New England settlers had a very distinct motive for coming to the New World: to escape religious persecution. Freedom of religion was a major reason why people traversed across the Atlantic to settle in a foreign land. For this reason, most settlers were families (husbands and wives), possibly with children. Their relations with natives were friendly, although there was some conflict which was displayed in King Philip's War. Their economy was based on small-scale and self-sufficient farming, not requiring large amounts of slavery. Although, indentured servitude was prevalent throughout the colony. Politics was ruled by town meetings and a Puritan way of life. The Chesapeake colonies, on the other hand, were established in a much different and more economically focused manner. The motive for settlement in the Chesapeake was mostly for economic profit. Therefore most settlers were young, single men. Because profit was the goal, large-scale plantation farming became the means to achieve this goal which ultimately let to wide-scale slavery of Africans. The planter aristocracy created a sharp divide between the rich and poor. Plantation farming ruled the colony and their whole way of life became centered on the cultivation of tobacco, Although both were settled by the same country, The New England and Chesapeake colonies developed in drastically different ways, with motivation for settlement being the main reason.
