The Great War Comic

1. (from left to right based on the comic)
Serbia
Austria
Russia
Germany
France
Britain

2. austria and germany are in an alliance with each other known as the “dual alliance”. this happened because Germany wanted to isolate France

Russia, Bristain, and France were in a triple entente with each other for protection. Serbia is also a country not to be asscociated with Austria-Germany.

3. Due to nationalism Serbia wants to become independant from Austria

4. All 3 of these countries were imperialistic, all wanting to expand their empires, however out of the 3 France was the least successful

5. at the time these were the 2 biggest naval armies and were constantly in competition for the largest army but Britain had their “two power standard to ensure their army was larger then the 2nd and 3rd biggest army

6. Serbia sent assassins to kill the archduke of Austria. With Germany’s support Austria offers an ulimatum however Serbia does not agree causing Austria to declare war on Serbia. Russia already prepared for this war before the declaration to help Serbia. Germany declares war on France. France orders general mobilaztion. Germany invades Belguim who are neutral but by doing so Britain declares war on Germany for violating their neutrality.

7. The comic may be in the perspective of the British because Serbia is depicted as small and someone who needs help as seen by Russia. The title is sarcastic due to the fact that the countries or “friends” are providing back up or support for people who are in way picking on them or bullying.

March-April Lab Reflection

Although this reflection is slightly different from the last due to spring break, it does not take away from the labs my group and I worked on during this past months. For this reflection I chose to reflect on the Gaufre de Bruxelles. I chose this lab because I have never been big on breakfast foods, especially waffles but I actually found these quite enjoyable compared to my past experiences with lower quality waffles such as Eggo. I think the waffles turned out the way as hoped, they had really nice browning to add a crunch, however the biggest downfall to the recipe I found was that the waffles were really rich and oily. With all of the labs I did with my group I think we always work well together. My group members were all quite familiar with the expectation for a waffle. Its always a pleasure to work with a group who will either volunteer or delegate tasks in a polite way, making the lab go by efficiently. If I had the opportunity to do this lab again I would love to experiment with this recipe incorporating it in a savory meal like with bacon for breakfast or chicken and waffles which is something I have heard a lot about and is usually highly recommended.

 

 

Poverty Cycle

  1. although there is no cure for HIV, currently we have the medicine to at least decrease the chances of the child carrying the virus from the parent. This will lead not having to pay for future medical expenses therefore not only saving money but also enabling these children have a greater chance of being able to work once old enough
  2. child labour is not an ideal solution for finical issues but we do recognize that there are family that do rely on these children’s income therefore a suitable solution would be at least providing meals to these children and break for these children to play and learn.
  3. to help break inequality for women, providing the same quality and amount of education that is provided to men will be beneficial. this will eventually provide women with jobs and careers to provide for children when they are ready and not forced to have children
