Central and South America have many similarities and differences. Their governments, technology, environments, and culture compare and contrast in so many ways. Costa Rica, Guatemala, Argentina, Honduras, Chile, Venezuela, and Brazil are just a few of the places in Central and South America, but there was still so much to learn.
South Africa’s largest sport is rugby. They will have grand festivals before and after each big game. Instead of baseball, they play cricket. Hunting is also a big sport in South Africa; some of the game they hunt include deer, which are described to be enormous compared to the deer in the United States, rhino, and buffalo. On some highways you will see wild animals strolling down the side and across the roads, including lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo. I could not imagine seeing wildlife like that in our everyday surroundings! Lions, leopards and elephant are of course, illegal to hunt. They also celebrate Woodstock, just as we do in the US.
There are many similarities and differences between the United States (U.S.) and New Zealand that make them unique. The U.S. has people from all around the world Including people from New Zealand. There is an abundance of jobs and opportunities for people who live there. They have freedom and liberty. This gives them rights that citizens of many other countries don’t have. They also have the right to vote for laws as well as political figures they want in office. Although the U.S. has some amazing qualities, New Zealand has many of the same Ideals, as well as several differences, but regardless both countries are amazing places.
Throughout history, many can see differences in the empires of America and the empires of Africa, but some fundamental similarities exist among these empires that make them successful. While each of these empires is deeply rooted in promoting economic growth and spiritual connectivity, they go about these tasks in different ways due to their individual and unique circumstances.
The African and Mesoamerican Societies can be either very similar or very different depending on the way you look at them. On one hand they can be very different with what their economy was made of and cultural. On the other they can be very similar with the fact that they migrate to avoid harsh environments.
India and South Africa were two important nations on two different continents. But although they looked strong on the outside, each one suffered from a disease that threatened the health of the whole. For India, the disease was colonization. For South Africa, it was racial segregation.
The article on About.com, “Comparing the City in the United States and Canada” by Ping Zhou discussed the differences between cities of the U.S and Canada. These two countries are tied together either geographically or economically. Though those cities of two countries share almost the same traits with each other, there are still some differences among them when “breaking down some of those traits”: Sprawl, Transportation and Ethnic Diversity.
South Korea and America are two pressing and influential countries in the world, both with an expressible different history back grounds and present day cultural life style. While most of South Korea is notably similar to America in architect and popular culture, there are some huge divergences in our education system such as classroom atmosphere and student conduct, what a prototypical school day looks like and how many hours we study, and our college placement assessments.
I often think about the similarities that the American South had with the Apartheid era in South Africa. You are right about the idea of someone’s normal. If we don’t challenge our normal, we may be prejudiced or biased without even knowing it. I mentioned implicit bias in my post for the awareness quiz and I think it fits well here too. We all carry implicit bias in some shape or form and it often is culturally driven. Growing up in a segregated country provides a different normal for those who face the prejudice and for those who enact it. My normal was witnessing black people use different beaches and restroom facilities to me and I truly hope that no-one, ever, thinks that is normal anymore,
South Africa has diamonds and gold. The Boers settled in Africa long before the British came there to colonize. The Boers were Dutch and come over to Africa in 1652. The Boers and the British did not agree with British policies including land and slaves. The Boers had no where to go but north. Which later became known as the Great Trek. When they were heading north they got in fierce battles with the Zulu and many other African groups as they were attempting to take land. The Boers didn't want outsiders coming in when gold was discovered. The Boers did t want any of the people coming to seeks fortune to gain any political rights. People tried to rebel against the Boers and failed. The British were blamed, and the tension was greater than ever.
In a world with numerous countries and adversities, every country has its different appeal. Sometimes we find ourselves comparing their similarities and differences, like there topography, culture, language, and so on. In this essay, based on my experiences and research, I am going to compare Jamaica and U.S. Although both countries are compelling in different ways, they hold more similarities than we even imagine. Jamaica and U.S are located in two different geographical settings. The U.S is a country which consists of 50 states covering North America, and surrounded by oceans on all sides. It’s the fourth-largest country in the world with a population of approximately 318.9 million people.
In the 1830s, the British Government began to look to South Africa for the abundant gold and diamond in the area, as well as, with the hopes of gaining control of the most strategic port and route to trade with India. The British acted quickly, and started to take control of the cape of South Africa. In 1833, they emancipated the Afrikaners’ slaves, created more taxes, and auctioned off previously communal land. This caused great rage within the Boer community. The Boers were Dutch and Huguenot people that migrated to South Africa in the late 17th century (Great Trek). Starting in 1835, the Boers left their homeland with the goal of starting a new life free from British rule. The majority of the migrants left from the Eastern frontier of South
In America, when someone points out all of the flaws of the great nation it is common for an American who no longer wants to argue to say “Well we went to the moon, what exactly did your country do?” with an extreme sense of condensation. And, while it is true that America valiantly went to the moon, most countries now have a considerable presence in the space community and while America is still a leader, it’s mostly just because they were a lot richer than the rest of the world, for example let’s say the USSR or the other extremely morbidly crazy semi world power of the time, China. It’s really funny that while those countries can say things like “We didn’t elect Putin” or “We have the great wall of China”, both very brave or interesting
The movie invictus portrays a very controversial issue that has been presented throughout history in many ethnic groups and is seen in societies up to these days. The apartheid is clearly pictured in the movie through many of the attitudes and actions that people take towards the other race they live in their day by day. What is more, Mandela constitutes one of the most important figures in South Africa, especially for the black race as he liberated them from the apartheid. From those days Mandela has been recognized worldwide as a major symbol of the rainbow nation; a reality of distinction between the black and the white people and its establishing differe nces.
