What Were the Short-Term Significances

What were the short-term significances of the Crimean War of 1854-1856 in terms of foreign policy? The Crimean War was a momentous event in the amendment of foreign policy. Several short-term significances stemmed from the war shaping Britain’s global position, alongside initiating a new aggressive policy led by Palmerston[1] and creating the ‘world power’ ideology. Faults in the military mismanagement, and the failure of Aberdeen’s government led to the realization of the need for reform.Depicted as having caused the army to â€Å"change more in those two years than in the previous two hundred,†[2] it is clear that the Crimea influenced a series of short-term significances in the successive twenty years. The change from Aberdeen’s[3] diplomatic government to Palmerston’s aggressive ministry resulted from growing patriotism in the Crimea. Aberdeen’s cautious attitude towards war was highlighting and became increasingly unpopular as it â€Å"lacked Palmerston’s ‘manly vigour†. [4] Aberdeen distaste for war was emphasised when he wrote to Peel[5] â€Å"war in order to preserve peace is entirely inapplicable to†¦ the Great Powers†. 6] His involvement in the Napoleonic Wars[7] influenced this attitude as he was less naive to war conditions than others. Sourced from a letter between Aberdeen and Peel, he was defending his anti-war stance. His belief that peace was not achieved in this way was supported by the Congress System which had held peace without war for 30years. Peel’s attitude differed, believing in â€Å"Bellum para, pacem habebis†, [8] – that peace was obtained through war preparation. Peel compared how equipped France[9] was making Aberdeen seem unprepared.Moreover, Aberdeen was blamed for issues raised in Russell’s[10] war reports such as the military mismanagement and unsanitary conditions[11]. This negative publicity influenced John Roebu ck[12] to enquire into the management of war. Public opinion contrasted Aberdeen’s approach which John Lowe described as a â€Å"conciliatory disposition to the point of whimpishness. †[13] Instead, they supported Palmerston’s â€Å"zealous defence of British interests. † Palmerston, unlike Aberdeen did not have the support Queen Victoria[14], and therefore gained support through co-operation with the public.Stuart confirmed his popularity saying, â€Å"Wherever I go†¦ one opinion has been pronounced in a single word –Palmerston. †[15] Said in the throes of war, it was a current, credible description and being a politician, Stuart was able to gauge public opinion on Palmerston so was competent to make judgements. However reliability is affected as Stuart was likely to show support towards the popular government at that time, in this case, Palmerston. The Crimean had highlighted flaws in Aberdeen’s hesitant diplomacy and brought t he significance of a new confrontational approach.Under Palmerston’s governance, Britain was presented with a stronger image than it ever had been under Aberdeen. ‘Gunboat diplomacy’[16] allowed him to create the illusion that Britain was the world power. Evidence of his aggressive ‘gunboat diplomacy’ was the Indian Mutiny [17] in which he forcefully suppressed mutinies to insure British power was not threatened. Palmerston’s illusion was further supported when the diplomatic situation in Europe was shaken by the collapse of the Congress of Vienna;[18] a consequence of the Crimean war.For British foreign policy, this was vastly significant because the suppression of Russian influence[19] in the region due to the Treaty of Paris[20] allowed Britain to temporarily become the dominant power on the continent, projecting their power and reinforcing Palmerston’s illusion. Media became a new phenomenon in the Crimea and Russell’s report ing effectively caused many alterations to foreign policy. As the first on-the-spot reporter, he exposed the true conditions of war to a naive country[21].Although, many aspects of foreign policy were in need of much change, the war reporting brought them to light, pushing them to happen quicker. A sketch from the unique perception of ‘Punch magazine’ highlights the lack of supplies the British military faced. Dialogue between two soldiers says; â€Å"Well Jack! Good news from home, we’re to have a medal†, â€Å"That’s very kind. Maybe one of these days we’ll have a coat to stick it on†. [22] Being a national magazine, Punch wanted to capture the attention of readers and does so by sarcastically highlighting the problems in the Crimea.The fact that it calls the soldiers, â€Å"patient heroes† suggests they are not placing blame on military officers for the lack of supplies but they are rather mocking the Government instead. The limitation however is that the motive was to sell as many copies of ‘Punch’ as possible, therefore dramatisation on elements occurred. The Times Newspaper exploited the poor conditions in order to shock the public gaining publicity. Russell reported, â€Å"there is not the least attention paid to decency or cleanliness. [23] On one hand, Russell had a first-hand account of the war and gained excess to information that was unavailable to others and written at the time of war it viable and current. But there is debate as to how truthful these reports were. Prince Albert, who took an interest in foreign policy, said that â€Å"the pen and ink of one miserable scribbler is despoiling the country. † Proof of this ‘despoil’ was the collapse of Aberdeen’s government who were exposed as weak through the media. By reporting such in-depth details about the military, Russell took the risk of revealing information about the military that could be useful to the enemy.Russell’s agenda was to sell newspapers and make himself as well-known as possible, and reporting the negative conditions of war was much more likely to cause a public uproar that any positive news, therefore it is not unlikely that he emphasised his reports in order to gain more publicity. The high impact of war reporting is discussed by Chamberlain; â€Å"there was no censorship (no country made this mistake in any future),†[24] thus proving the high impact and influence the media had back home and in the government. The role of women had huge significances in the Crimea, socially, medically and in foreign policy.Florence Nightingale[25] imprinted her name throughout history through her determination to reform the British military health-care. When Nightingale along with 38 other nurses[26] arrived at Scutari [27] they were met by â€Å"patients grimed with dirt, [and] infested with vermin. †[28] The account of her personal experience validates th e atrocious conditions. However, written towards the end of war Nightingale may have over-emphasised the severity of these conditions so that people saw her as the saviour and driving force behind the improvements.Nightingale made a considerable difference to the military conditions, producing ‘Coxcombes’[29] as a way of displaying her improvements. Statistically they showed that in the first 4 months of fighting 1,619 soldiers died of wounds against 16,273 whom died of disease, but under her service, the death rate reduced from 42% to 2%. Her work at Scutari became highly recognised and medical reports from the time described it as â€Å"extremely valuable. † [30] However, there is a limit as to how truthful her coxcombs were as it has been suggested that she dramatised the improvements in order to promote herself.Being a female of the Victoria era meant that people thought she would not be capable of making a significant difference in war as it was not the job of a woman. Therefore Nightingale would have felt the need to put emphasis on her work to get noticed. Part of the reason in which Nightingale became so well-known was due to her connection with war correspondent – Russell. The two worked together to benefit their own agendas; Nightingale gained publicity for her work and Russell benefitted from selling Nightingale’s stories in newspapers across the country.Mary Seacole was another influential woman of the Crimea, who perhaps had a more modest agenda. Seacole stepped forward determined to offer her services after Russell made his passionate plea [31] asking for â€Å"devoted women†¦ willing to go forth to minister to the sick and suffering soldiers of the East in the hospitals of Scutari? † Yet Nightingale refused to work alongside Seacole due to her ethnicity, as her â€Å"blood flowed beneath a somewhat duskier skin than theirs. [32] Taken from Seacole’s biography published the year after the Crim ea, it showed the bitterness towards Nightingale and was written to illustrate to people the prejudice she faced. Seacole funded her own trip to the Crimea, setting up a shop on the front line to cover the expenses. [33] Iveson argued that Seacole played a more significant role in the Crimea than Nightingale; â€Å"In many ways she stands head and shoulders above Nightingale, for whereas Florence performed only an administrative role, Seacole was in the thick of things and did not hesitate to go to the battlefield itself. [34] This weighs up the work of both nurses and concludes that Seacole was in fact the more important of the two, despite Nightingale being more recognised. He praises her self-funding and determination to put herself on the battlefield. Overall, both Seacole’s and Nightingale’s role in the Crimea resulted in significant improvements to the nursing profession, which from that point on began to gain respect and importance. In terms of foreign policy, it brought a new era of nursing into the military. More medical care was developed including the first hospital train.It was realised that strong medical supply corps would result in a stronger, more effective army so British foreign policy learned from this mistake in future events. Military reforms also developed as a significance of the Crimea. Army organisation had become outdated and remained much the same since the Napoleonic wars. Soldiers were untrained and inexperienced. The incompetence of the military was highlighted at its peak in the ‘Charge of the Light Brigade’. [35] Lucan[36] said they were given the command, â€Å"there is your enemy and there are your guns,† showing there was little preparation or strategic plans.However, Lucan said this in the House of Lords whilst he was defending himself in the enquiry and therefore the reliability of his statement must be questioned. He may have exaggerated the command in order to take blame off of himself. Nevertheless, the chaos of the event was reinforced by Lord Cardigan who described the true extent of the chaos; â€Å"we were encircled by a blaze of fire†¦artillery poured upon our rear, so that we had a strong fire upon our front, our flank, and our rear. †[37] The Charge of Light Brigade showed the extent at which the army had become outdated and the desperate need for reform.The Cardwell reforms[38] were influenced as a result of the Crimea. This was significant because thanks to both the military and medical reforms it created a stronger British army. Overall, the Crimea War was of huge significance on British foreign policy, mainly due to the creation of an attitude of a ‘world power’ and a policy of isolation. The role of the media played the most significant role by highlighting flaws in all aspects of foreign policy and creating a sense of patriotism within the public who then pushed for changes.By highlighting Aberdeen’s diplomatic policy a nd anti-war attitude, the media brought the collapse of his government. This led to the most significant change – the appointment of Palmerston, who brought the new aggressive ‘gunboat diplomacy’. This changed British mind-set by making Britain seem more dominant on the continent. Additional turning points added to the feeling of a ‘world power’. Without the media, the nation would not have been made aware of the problematic military system and poor medical supply.This exposure therefore awakened military reforms and the realisation of the need for a strong medical supply corps. This then subsequently allowed Britain a stronger army giving them a greater control and standing in the European diplomatic situation. In conclusion, the media explosion was the main significance of the Crimea War and helped secure Britain’s superior position in Europe.

Differences Between Caucasian American And Hispanic Americans

The United States is a big country which involved multiple races, religions, cultures, and languages..etc.. Before I came to the U.S, I couldn’t tell the difference between a Caucasian American and a Hispanic American since their face and body structure seemed similar to me at that time. It took me about a year to fluently identify an individual’s ethnicity based on his/her appearance. Therefore, I was confused when I had to live with fifty people who came from different states. They all had different personalities, accents, and appearances. Based on my experience after my nine weeks training with the platoon, I divided my friends into three different categories. The people who well planned their future, the people who didn t plan their future and the people who joined because of the family guidance. The first category was the people who well planned their future before coming to the basic training. This type of people often was married and had a degree before joining the army. They had a standard living, but they wanted more than that. They joined the army for its benefits; they also did a lot of researches on the benefits before they signed the contract. They worked hard on the missions to make sure that they achieved their goals, expectations. They were mature to lead the platoon, and they could handle the stress very well.

Essay about Math and Criminal Justice - 693 Words

Math and Criminal Justice Danielle DeCook MM150-66 Survey of Mathematics Instructor Lisa James July 8, 2010 A Career in the Criminal Justice Field There are so many career options in the Criminal Justice field I have not been able to decide exactly what I want to do yet but I am very interested in possibly becoming a Criminologist. While doing my research I have seen that Math is used in every aspect of Criminal Justice from law enforcement using math to work car accidents, drug raids, crime scenes, and sometimes just using math to figure up crime statistics in their area. A Criminologist will use statistical principles such as probability in criminal profiling, which is a way they attempt to put together a profile†¦show more content†¦(GRAPH OF FINDINGS OF NEXT PAGE REPRESSENTED BY FIG. 1) (Fig. 1) Once we looked at the information obtained it was hard to say for sure whether or not the nurse had anything to do with spike in deaths on the shifts she was present for. My superiors wanted to know if the number of deaths occurred while the nurse was working was so unlikely that is could be a mere coincidence. So I reviewed an 18 month period of time and figured up deaths on shifts she worked and the death on shifts she did not. (Represented by fig.2). (Fig. 2) If the deaths are assumed to have happened randomly these numbers suggest that the probability of a death on any one shift is 98 deaths out of 1322 patients or .074. Looking at just the shifts that the nurse was working there were 276. If the nurse was killing the patients we would expect there would be around .074 x 276 = 20.4 deaths on her shifts, around 20-21 deaths. To be exact she had a total of 52 deaths on her shifts. When looking at the facts the probability of there being 52 deaths out of the total of 98 deaths there is less than a 1 in a million. So in other words the nurses shift was not just unlucky for patients. This is how I would use math in my field one day.

Bram Stoker Father Of All Vampires - 1786 Words

Eric Ruiz Mrs. Cahill English 5/7/2017 Bram Stoker: Father of All Vampires There are a lot of new horror movies coming soon to theatres this 2017, and they have tons of hype building up from people all over the world. There was also a recent social media phenomenon that took place where random people would roam the streets in the dark, dressed as evil clowns, only to terrify and spook the public. The popularity of the horror genre is only increasing and advancing as the years go by, but who were the founders of this beloved genre? The start of our today’s evolving horror genre could have possibly began back to where time was not yet recorded, and stories were passed on orally. The rush of fear that horror stories bring to us is a feeling†¦show more content†¦A large chapter of Bram’s childhood took place in his bed, where he had a bell to ring his mother’s attention. But as more siblings joined the family, his mother’s attention was forced to be divided. During those first seven years of his life, he heavily depended on his mother’s company. Bram’s mother would tell young Bram scary folklore tales of gothic Ireland. Ireland of the 1850’s was full of superstitious creatures and folk legends, and Bram’s mother knew them all. Many experts from today claim that this period of time in Bram’s life shaped the foundation of all imagination for his future gothic literature. Bram Stoker was introduced to scary stories early, and consistently while growing up in his household isolated in his bed from the outside (Whitelaw,12). In 1864, Stoker had enrolled at the University of Dublin at age 17. He attended the sole constituency of the university, Trinity College. Although Stoker was less experienced with athletics due to his unknown illness, he still managed to play many sports at his college. His physical skills earned him an award as athlete of the year (Whitelaw, 16). Many experts believe his athletics inspired the development of his cha racter’s physique. Bram studied philosophy, drama, debating, and mathematics. He graduated with honor at Trinity College with a mathematics degree in 1870.

La Liga Filipina free essay sample

La Liga Filipina Exile  to  Dapitan The making of the La Liga Filipina was the solution that Rizal thought of to stop the oppression of the Filipinos against the Spaniards. This aims to protect the Filipino people, to avoid the abuse of the Spaniards and most especially to unite the Filipinos. Rizal hopes that in creating the La Liga Filipina, it would put a stop to the abusive Spanish rule. In the time that the La Liga Filipina was already created, he was already thrown in Dapitan because of some charges such as the one responsible for the two novels, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, which was obviously against the Spanish rule and was also blamed being the leader of the Katipunan. He then won the lottery and was able to buy a land near the Talisay shore. He and his love interest, Josephine Bracken, also got married. They had a child but sadly died. We will write a custom essay sample on La Liga Filipina or any similar topic specifically for you Do Not WasteYour Time HIRE WRITER Only 13.90 / page During  these times, one of Rizal’s views was the importance of education. He strongly believed that education would be the solution to put a stop to the injustice of the Spanish rule. Rizal organized La Liga Filipina, a secret organization, on July 3 1892. It aimed to change the way the government was run in a peaceful way. In July 7, 1892, less than a week after the La Liga was organized, Captain General Despujol ordered Rizals exile to Dapitan, on suspicion of his involvement in rebellion. In Dapitan, he opened a school with fourteen(14) pupils. On December 29, 1896, he wrote the Last Farewell, and was executed in Bagumbayan (now Luneta) the next day.

Simple Harmonic Motion Lab Report Essay Example

Simple Harmonic Motion Lab Report Paper Motion Lab Report Introduction Simple harmonic motion is the motion of a mass on a spring when it is subject to the linear elastic restoring force given by Hookers Law. In this lab, we will observe simple harmonic motion by studying masses on springs. In the first part of this lab, you will determine the period, T, of the spring by observing one sliding mass that is attached to two springs with the spring constant k, and attached to a hanging mass by a string and a pulley. The next part, you will determine the period, T, of oscillation caused by two springs attached to either side of a sliding ass. By knowing the velocity in the second part, you can find kinetic energy and potential energy of the oscillating mass. Also, you must find the uncertainty in the period, kinetic energy, and potential energy. Procedure In this experiment, you will determine the experimental and theoretical period of a spring, the kinetic energy and potential energy by measuring the spring constant and velocity of a spring. In this first part of this lab, you will have a sliding mass on a frictionless air track attached to two springs on one side, and attached to a hanging mass by a string and pulley on the other.

The rest of the first part requires you to add 20 grams to the hanging mass and then measuring how far the sliding mass has moved for the equilibrium position. That number will be your delta x. Do that method five times and then solve for the spring constant through the formula: (Delta m) g = k (Delta x). The values of k that you solve for will be plugged into the formula: T = 2 (pi) (radical m/k). The period that you solved for will be your theoretical period. In part two of this lab, you will attach a spring on either side of a sliding mass on a frictionless air track and have a photo gate measure the period as the mass oscillates. Repeat that procedure for three more times and at each trial, add 20 more grams to the mass. The period that you get is your experimental period. The next step is to record the velocity of the oscillating mass to solve for the kinetic energy and potential energy. After finding the theoretical and experimental periods, you must make a graph comparing the two with error bars on the theoretical period. To find the uncertainty in the theoretical period, use the formula: Conclusion Through experiment, we have been able to calculate a value for two different kinds of periods of an oscillating mass, the kinetic energy, and the potential energy. A photo gate, which is connected to a frictionless air track that supports the sliding mass, records the period and velocity of the oscillating mass.
