Why were the Balkans so politically unstable before World War 1 other than having so many cultures in a small area?
Short answer: 1) the region is a gateway between Europe and Middle East, then onwards into Asia. It's a strategic location, and many countries (including the US) want control over the land routes. 2) the population is very diverse - muslims, catholics, orthodoxs, and their identity is based on cultu…ral, rather than civic values. All this adds to political instability pretty quickly. Answer In the 80-100 years before 1914 the whole area was simply gripped by nationalism - which is a highly inflamatory and unstable force. Answer The Ottoman Empire was in its last years so the countries saw this as a chance to get liberated and expand. Answer Furthermore the Russian Empire attempted to further weaken the Ottoman Empire and at the same time to stop the expansion of the Austrian Empire Eastward. So it elected itself as "protector" of little Slavonic Countries in the Balkans encouraging and backing in secret turmoils in that region. Its ultimate task was to gain a coastal outlet on the Mediterranean Sea. (MORE)

Finally the most popular, the Assyrian New Year (Syriac: Ha b-Nison/Kha b-Nisan). Some of these traditions have been practiced by the Assyrians for well over 1,500 years, and there are many more.

Translation: Bring some epinephrine drug right this second for Mr. Green's allergic reaction causing the shortness of breath.

No resistance to their flow. A superconductor shows almost zero resistance to the flow of electric current, which is another name for a flow of electrons. So a very thin superconducting wire can carry enormous amperages which would cause a normal, non-superconducting, wire to vaporize just like f…uze wire! However, to make a wire become superconducting requires the use of powerful refrigeration systems that use huge amounts of energy, to cool the wire down to temperatures close to absolute zero which is 0 Kelvin or about -273 o C. (The actual temperature required to achieve superconduction depends very much on the materials used to make the wire.) So, when engineers have to decide if it makes sense to use a superconductor when designing a particular system, the costs of the refrigeration system and the on-going energy necessary to produce superconduction must always be taken into account. .

Your question supposes that all native peoples in the Americas had a single culture, which is a false premise. The culture of the Amazonian tribes is totally different from that of the Ingalik of Alaska; the Plains culture was totally different to the northern and eastern woodlands culture of Can…ada and the USA and the Great Basin people lived a totally different lifestyle to that of the Maya. Climate and natural resources have a huge impact on culture and the Americas include a huge range of different climates. All that can be said in general terms is that before contact with Europeans, all native Americans were living a Neolithic lifestyle in its broadest sense - using whatever food sources and materials were available in their own locality. Some groups even produced metalwork with native copper and gold, but they were still essentially a New Stone Age society. Some groups produced pottery, others did not; some wove baskets, others made containers of tree bark. Some were farmers, others were hunter-gatherers; some depended almost entirely on fishing. For this reason the Americas are divided into many distinct cultural areas, each with its own specific cultural traits. (MORE)

It actually went through stages. With the rough conditions and harsh living conditions during this time period. (Civil War, Industrial Revolution, Potato Famine) People began to reject the older form of art and expression which stressed reason and progression which came from the ideals of the Enligh…tenment. Instead, artists, poets, musicians, ect. began a new form of expression known as romanticism which was basically designed to erupt emotions in the readers, listeners, ect. An example would be Beethoven's symphonies. After that came a period of realism which was all about exposing the world as it was and not glorifying it. An example of one of these works is Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist. Finally, it went into an era of impressionism which was really started because painters wanted to compete with the new device known as the camera which was becoming more and more popular. It was easier and did everything that a painter could do, but better. Impressionism allowed people to see things figuratively and literally in a different light. Painters like Van Gough experimented with bright colors and quick strokes of the brush. Often painters painted the same scene over and over, but at different times of the day to create a different feel. Something that a camera during that time period could not. This is about as much as I know on the subject. (MORE)
