...people of the time started to believe more in Humanist ideas and life on earth rather than just working to death, just to go to heaven. Or Individualism. People thought it right to be themselves - the great man can shape his own destiny. Humans are the center of the universe and the "measure of all things." Humans could do well at many things: "The Renaissance Man." Humans began to have a questioning attitude and challenged tradition and authority. They believed life on earth was more important than the afterlife. There was greater emphasis on this life and less on the afterlife and on God - the world is to be enjoyed. Humans are the center of the universe and the "measure of all things." b. In what ways did the witchcraft hunts of the 16th and 17th centuries foster the expansion of state power? Europeans’ fear was that witchcraft was a new and increasing threat to their world. Witch mania reflected the fears Europeans held about the devil , another consequence of religious dissent and uncertainty. It also reflects their growing conviction that only the state had the power to protect them. In both Catholic and Protestant countries, the result of these witchcraft trials thus a considerable increase in the scope of the state’s powers to regulate the lives of subjects. c.

...will diminish the water supply. Certain climates can be distributed over large regions, and smaller areas can have specific climates that differ from the larger climate around them. These are the areas we’re going to focus on. They’re called: microclimates. Microclimates are created by temperature, humidity, wind, dew, soil, heat, and evaporation—all of these factors can alter the climate of a single, smaller area within a larger climate. . The rise and fall of land, its topography can also create large-scale microclimates. Because warm air rises and cold air falls, valleys where cold air collects may be cooler than the slopes and hilltops you’d find up above. Valleys can also be more prone to frost than slopes. It’s important to note that warmer southern-facing slopes that absorb more sun often support different plants than the northern-facing slopes. Though many microclimates are naturally created, some are manmade. Urban areas with paved roads and cement buildings can produce large-scale microclimates. The sun’s rays are absorbed by all the concrete and radiated BACK out into the air at night, raising temperatures. Not only that, but the buildings here can actually block the wind, which could ALSO affect the temperatures and weather. And what happens is that these conditions not only create both warmer summers AND winters, but they also affect the areas spreading out from the urban centers and alter the climates of even larger areas ...

...Name Instructor Course Date World History Reasons why America and Japan became successful after 1860 The United States made many efforts to become successful in the earlier 1860’s; among them, they sought all means possible to control markets in order to multiply profits. Monopoly of markets control was achieved by the organization of trust. For example between 1868, when the first standard oil company was started in Pennsylvania, and 1900, Rockefeller’s oil company brought other companies under its control. Standard oil companies were in California, Iowa, Ohio, and New Jersey, but were brought together, and Standard Oil Company gained control of competing companies such as Acme oil, Atlantic refining among others. On the other hand, Japan became successful because of its revitalizing relationship with the United States. The combination of the Chinese ports to regular trade ensured that there was steady stream of maritime traffic between North America and Asia. The combination of its advantageous geographic position and rumors that Japan had deposits of coal increased the appeal of establishing commercial and diplomatic contacts with the Japanese. Reason for the decline of Chinese power after 1800 The imperial conquest of the British and Western countries led to a major fall of china’s power in 1800’s. This is because the imperial conquest was based on the militaristic nature of the imperial state, its non-reciprocal economic relations with overseas trading countries and the......

...you write the History of the World? The history of the world is a very broad and extremely extensive topic to cover. There are literally endless amounts of information that one could write about for a world history coarse or textbook. Where one starts amidst the vast sea of our worlds history is a large part of where the coarse or text will go. For a coarse such as this one, based on modern world history with the emphasis on war and environmental and technical change we cannot start too far back on a timeline because otherwise we will never reach the modern history. As a starting point the middle ages works well because it gives us a slight background of the ancient worlds but is a very transitional time. Spending a short amount of time in the Middle Ages focusing mainly on the crusades and the kings of England and their reigns to get the reader or student interested. After discussing the middle ages, we would move on the exploration and colonization of the rest of the world. This is a major point and a larger amount of time should be placed here because first off there is much to cover with the Columbus discovery of north America followed by the sea route to India. Also because these are extremely important times because they are basically the start of the western world we know today. Around the same time period we have the war of the Roses followed by the Elizabethan age in Britain. Also, since it is world history and not simply western world history, there......

In Elie Wiesel’s novel, Night, he relives his experiences in which he’s compiled during the Holocaust that the German Nazis were held accountable for. On May 1944, towards the end of the Second World War, he at the age of fifteen, his family, and other Jews are forced by the Nazis to detach from their homes to attend their first concentration camp called Auschwitz.

Historically we can say that somehow upset the religious, social, economic, cultural and political order of his time. But, Martin Luther did not agree with what the Catholic Church was doing.
