What has been your experience with learning and utilizing various study skills?

Answer:

Study skills need to fit you and your needs, not the other way around. By working with your strengths, we will form methods that work for you. This could be using physical flash cards over digital, task batching, swallowing the frog, the pomodoro method, and so many others. Once we find the general style that works for you, we will then customize it and amend when needed.

Question:

Who (which governments, political leaders, etc.) decide on borders between states?

Answer:

First it’s important to remember that our modern idea of state borders is a relatively new phenomenon in human history. Borders between empires, kingdoms, villages, and other forms of habitation were far more fluid with many countries only forming politically governed borders starting in the 1600s. There are multiple ways that an internationally recognized border is formed, the first being history. Generally you see this with countries like Iran and Ethiopia which have had relatively the same international borders over the centuries with the Persian Empire and the Ethopian Empire, allowing for the common territorial gains and losses overtime. Current borders have also been drawn by past colonial forces and their agreements with each other such as the borders of Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq in the Middle East and Nigeria and Burkina Faso in West Africa. A country can also have a referendum on forming a new state with South Sudan being one of our most recent examples. Military invasions and the absorption of the losing state are another common way states have grown their borders in history, though these are not always universally recognized.

Why is understanding political science and politics important?

Answer:

Everything is politics. Some people say that they don’t believe in politics or that they are not political people. This is false, every stance and action in some way. Whether you believe that your vote doesn't count, no matter the strength of the representational democracy, or you only shop at fair trade, organic grocery stores.
