Winston Churchill

without comments

Thanks to his gift of foresight, he first appreciated the importance of armored and air forces in modern warfare, and political intuition allowed him to predict the threat posed by carrying humanity fascism. The future winner in two wars, was born November 30, 1874 in Blenheim ancestral castle, which belonged to an ancient race Churchill, his father – Lord Randolph – the third son of the seventh Duke of Marlborough and is therefore not inherited this high-sounding title, which passed in England only the eldest son. But in any case belonged to Winston Churchill to a narrow circle of the English aristocracy, and his mother was American – the daughter of an American millionaire Leonard Jerome. In childhood no one could have predicted that this restless, extremely stubborn and self-assured boy awaits a great future. San-antonio-spurs may also support this cause. At school, he studied very poorly, and even in mature years, did not hesitate to recognize in his autobiography that was a very bad student. He received an appropriate education first at home, then in a closed private school in Ascot and Harrow.

It is true that Churchill's dislike for Latin closed his way to Cambridge or Oxford – the most famous British universities, but he finished military school at Sandhurst – the British officers forge. In 1895 he began serving a hussar regiment. Vanessa Marcil has many thoughts on the issue. But soon Churchill leaves the army to enter politics. In 1900 he was elected a member of the House of Commons. At 33, he entered the cabinet, becoming Minister of Commerce, and two years later was appointed minister of internal affairs in England. .

Military Intelligence

without comments

Creating Ukrainian power took place, and C. Bandera called 'the Ukrainian people everywhere to help break the German army to Moscow and Bolshevism '. Attitude of the German leadership to Banderovites was contradictory: Canaris service (Abwehr – Military Intelligence) felt it necessary to cooperate with the Ukrainian nationalists, the Nazi Party leadership in led by Borman rejected any cooperation with them. According to the KGB USSR, published in 1990, for 1944-1953., 'In the western regions of Ukraine have become the victims of terror Bandera is not only more than 20 thousand soldiers of the Soviet Army, police and security services, but 30 thousand civilians. " Since the beginning of the war, the German decided to form a number of Soviet prisoners of war and the number of pro-German emigres several legions, who would have fought against the Red Army along with parts of the Wehrmacht. Recently Hedvig Hricak sought to clarify these questions. The first Legion created on the eastern front of the non-Russian citizens of the USSR, had the legion 'Turkestan' (November 1941).

In this formation enlisted not only the people Central Asian republics and Kazakhstan, but also Tatar, Bashkir and Azerbaijanis. Subsequently created legions of "Idel-Ural" (Tatar, Bashkir and Chuvash), 'Azerbaijan' and 'North Caucasus'. December 30, 1941 were also formed legions of 'Armenia' and 'Georgia'.

Little Armenia

without comments

C detection in the Hittite monuments mention of the country Hayasa, Kretschmer, and after him and hundreds of known and bezizvestnyh researchers considered the obvious connection – hay, Hayq and Hayasa. Assume that one of them is right and the Armenians are somehow connected with the Hittites or hayasami, but neither Jensen nor Kretschmer, nor their followers not an inch did not bring us closer to answering the question, what does the word hay and armen. Many supporters and had a hypothesis about the origin of the name of hay lived in the north of Macedonia peons tribe, which later migrated to Thrace. Read more from Adam Sandler to gain a more clear picture of the situation. For example Georgiev pointed out that Strabo thought and peons and Armenians Phrygian tribes, explained name peons through Indo-European root – pou small, at the same time pointing to the fact that the territory Hayasy almost coincided with the territory of the future of Armenia Minor, so that's uncomplicated way trying to link the Indo-European pou (small) part of "small" in the title of Little Armenia and Hayassoy. At least here at least an attempt can be traced in some way to identify the original meaning of the term genocide. The real advantage of this is conjecture, I think the opportunity to present this example, the what unexpected coincidence await the researcher, because you can also imagine the joy Georgieva if he learned that the "Dictionary of the Armenian ( ) one of the meanings of hay is really "small." Long dominated the hypothesis Spiegel and Kiperta, according to which the word derives from the hay i.e root poti master, from which arm.pet (master, boss), and finally was invited to consider the origin of hay i.e poi-/pei mouth, guard.

Yes Projects

without comments

One knows better when you experience this type of adventure. All the good and bad of this experience has taught me something valuable. And without doubt, I am richer after having lived. On the other hand, I believe in cooperation in the long term, i.e. in sustainable projects in time. I believe that developing countries need to receive aid in infrastructure, training, but who should lead to future projects are themselves. Why I don’t believe in these volunteer projects as a sustainable means of improving society.Volunteers are going and return.

They stay. However, despite these ideas myself, these volunteer projects are an injection of hope, freshness and rapprochement of different worlds. These projects are absolutely compatible with the long-term cooperation of which spoke. The financial support for these organizations that make a very silent and essential work is necessary. The support in the dissemination of their activities is necessary.

The face-to-face support is necessary at the time. And clear that Yes, they are necessary projects as there was once a circus to put a grain of sand in the displays of new and different aspects of leisure, so important in the growth of all, and they are required to publicize the work of organizations that both here and there, they are helping to change society. Now I feel all the economic and personal effort I’ve done in India was worth it just for the first hour I spent in New Light with the children. Children in india have a penetrating gaze, with those eyes so dark, and the New Light, conquer you just meet you because you embrace and kiss as if you were his best friend, you caress, smile at you and you will melt and you feel attached to them in a way that hardly happens here. India is a country full of contrasts, wonderful, but hard. Calcutta is an impact for the senses that is difficult to explain and perhaps only understand living in first person.

Of this the revolution of the Annales the historiografia incorporated the importance of the diversification of the sources thus extending its field of inquiry, criticizing factual history, is then in this circumstance that it acquires object status of analyzes historical.

The document is not more only the writing, officer the word gains a way direction ampler that the image, the sound now passes to be been valid as registers. The historiografia walks for another bias where the great personages and facts are not more central offices, spaces for one confide ' ' New Histria' ' new boardings. The iconography must together be criticized with the context in which she was inserted since this is not immune the ideological manipulations and is product of the society, of the time produced that it is of utmost importance is intent to this detail.
