The popular sport events, like Olympic Game or Football World Cup, are highly important in contributing to the dialogue between peoples and countries. The most known example is a "ping-pong diplomacy" between the United States and Chine in the early 1970s. The ordinary sportsmen have paced a way for the mutually beneficial cooperation. Sport brings together common people from different corners of world. It unites them despite their background, social status, race or religion. It helps people to identify them in the globalized world, where the strongest wins competition in a fair way. It makes people to be proud for their country. There are many examples when sport becomes a religion, in countries like England, Italy or Brazil - football is everything. And when there are many fans and clubs, there will always be opponents. But if there are control and ensured security, extremists with aggressive behaviour will always be in minority. In this regard I agree that the sport plays a positive role in easing international tensions.

What were 3 main complaints Madison had against Britain in 1812?

The three main complaints that the U.S. had against Britain in 1812 were: 1.Britain tried to impose restrictions on the United States' merchant trade with France beginning in 1807, for two reasons: Britain was at war with France (the Napoleonic Wars) and hoped to harm it by preventing it from trading for necessary items with the United States, which had the largest merchant fleet not involved in the war, and it wanted to hamper the growing competition from the United States in commerce and manufacturing. Of course, Britain had no right under international law to impose restrictions on a neutral nation's trade. 2. Britain had had to expand the Royal Navy tremendously in order to fight its war. It did not have enough volunteers and so began to "impress" its citizens as sailors, essentially kidnapping men from the streets and bars of its cities and releasing them only on board a ship, where they had no choice but to serve in the Navy. Unfortunately, Britain believed that its subjects remained its subjects even after they had left Britain, moved to another country (such as the United States) and become citizens there. It therefore claimed the right to stop United States ships on the seas and search them not only for deserters from the British Navy who had become American citizens but also anyone else who had been born in Britain, whom they considered subject to impressment. Understandably, the U.S. was angry about this, and were infuriated when British naval ships had the audacity to station themselves just outside U.S. harbors, in U.S. territorial waters, to maximize the number of U.S. ships they could intercept. 3. The Old Northwest Territory, which included what is now Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin, had been an area of dispute between the Indians and the United States ever since the British Empire had ceded the area to the United States at the end of the American Revolution. White Americans were eager to expand into these fertile lands while Native Americans wanted to protect their homes. Battles between the two groups were ongoing, and the U.S. was especially concerned after the Indian nations formed a confederation. Since the British saw the Indian nations as possible allies and as providing a buffer zone protecting Canada from attempts by the U.S. to annex it, they provided much-needed guns and ammunition to the Indians.

Why people don't like Russians?

There are a few reasons for that. In the USA, anti-Communist feelings have been actively fanned over a long period of time, starting in 1918 after the Communist take-over of Russia. Projects like the New Deal in the Thirties and laws forbidding child labor and regulating working hours were branded "Communist ' at the time by right-wing politicians. Then there was the McCarthy era in the Fifties that created a anti-Communist near-hysteria in much of the USA that was to persist until 1989. And Russia was "the enemy" during the decades of the Cold War. Today, Russia is often disliked for trying to regain some of the stature it lost in the Nineties. Several of those efforts (truth be told) are caused by the USA and NATO promising Russia in the early Nineties that no advantage would be taken by them of Russia's releasing its grip on its former European satellite states - and then breaking that promise. Within a few years the West made several States bordering Russia NATO and EU members and happily have joint military exercises within shooting distance of Russia. Russia is now pushing back, admittedly without much subtlety (like taking back the Krim peninsula) and that is now resented by the West.

What is Shey's Rebellion?

The rebellion started on August 29, 1786, and by January 1787, over one thousand Shaysites had been arrested. A militia that had been raised as a private army defeated an attack on the federal Springfield Armory by the main Shaysite force on February 3, 1787, and four rebels were killed in the action. The leader Daniel Shays was a former Captain in the Continental Army, under General George Washington. Daniel Shays and many other former Continental Army members and other now local farmers were being taxed out of their farm's and property. After many attempt's to have the Massachusetts Government respond and do something about these people losing their homes and livelihood's they organized many meeting, much like they did before the revolution to no avail. They then started closing down debtor courts and releasing imprisoned debtors from jail. This lead to the full scale revolt, 'Shay's Rebellion'.Massachusetts Governor James Bowdoin organized the military force funded through taxes on eastern merchants to confront the rebels.The importance of this rebellion is the closeness of George Washington to Captain Shay's and other's that were losing everything they fought against Britain to guarantee to everyone in America. This led George Washington to once again step up for his country and be the chair residing over the Constitutional Convention.There was a lack of an institutional response to the uprising, which energized calls to reevaluate the Articles of Confederation and gave strong impetus to the Philadelphia Convention which began on May 17, 1787. Shays' Rebellion produced fears that the Revolution's democratic impulse had gotten out of hand.

What is the definition of senatorial courtesy?

Senatorial Privelege ( also called senatorial courtesy) is a custom in the US Senate whereby the Senate will not vote to confirm a Presidential appointee until the Senators from the state the appointee resides in consent to the Senate voting on it. This is a way for Senators to keep person they might not like from being confirmed in the appointment. Or as a way of getting some concession from the President in return for allowing the Senate to vote on confirmation. There is no law or provision in the Constitution for this. It exists as a custom only. All Senators go along with it no matter how it hurts either the office that is waiting for the appointee to take over or how it hurts the appointee. They go along with it because they know that sometime they might want to hold up someone's confirmation and would expect the rest of the Senate to go along with the delay. A Senator does not have to give any reason for holding up a vote for confirmation through senatorial privelege and there is no way to force the Senate to take a vote other than by way of public criticism to embarass the Senator into releasing the vote.

Why did benebict Arnold become a traitor?

Benedict Arnold became a traitor because he did not agree with America.He was a great general and will always be remembered. Benedict Arnold was dissatisfied with his treatment by the Congress and other army officers, feeling he was not getting the recognition he deserved for his part in major battles, like the one at Saratoga. He then approached the British with a plan to turn over the American fort at West Point, New York to the British. West Point was extremely important to the colonists because it commanded the Hudson River and prevented British warships from sailing down from Canada and cutting the New England colonies off from the rest of the colonies. When the plan was found out, he escaped to England and became an officer in the British army. At Saratoga, Arnold had played a major role in the winning of the battle and was even wounded in the leg. Horatio Gates took the honors though. Later, a comment was made by colonial soldiers about Arnold to the effect that if they ever caught him,he would be hanged as a traitor but that the leg that was wounded at Saratoga would be cut off and buried with full military honors. He was considered a traitor in 1779.

Popular events like the football world cup and other international sporting occasions are essential in easing international tensions and releasing patriotic emotions in a safe way?

Every four years, the whole world stops to watch international sporting events such as the Olympics and the Football World Cup in which athletes show their best performance to make their country proud of them. When powerful leaders were trying to control the world's economy and other governments were fighting over land, these sporting occasions have proved to be helpful in easing international tensions in difficult times. The Olympic Games are one of the best examples which prove how sporting events can bring nations together, at least temporarily. From ancient History, when Greeks and Romans would interrupt battles to participate in the games, to the more recent international disputes, when athletes from Palestine and Israel would forget their differences, compete pacifically and even embrace each other after an event. Moreover, these popular events have called the world's attention to the terrible consequences of wars; thus some leaders have tried to accept agreements to end their dispute and live peacefully. Similarly, international sporting events show benefits in some developing countries which live in a daily internal civil war. For instance, Brazil has a high rate of unemployment, lack of education, hunger, crime, poverty and corruption which leads to an immense embarrassment of being Brazilian and a low self-esteem. However, when the Football World Cup starts, the Brazilian squad, which is considered the best team in the world, provokes an amazing feeling of pride in their country. Most people seem to forget all their problems and even the criminal activity decreases. They paint roads with the national colors, use wear the Brazilian team shirt and buy national flags. Moreover, the competition brings families and neighbors together and even rival gangs watch the games and celebrate peacefully.
