Transcript of US History

Double click anywhere & add an idea The Cold War Why was it so cold? Because it was in Russia? But there was fighting. It was cold because of there was no
direct fighting between the USSR and the USA. Is there a legacy now? But there were many wars
fought by proxy. Vietnam
(to name a few) Russia is a very cold place. Potsdam Conference Held after VE Day and Before VJ day Truman Churchill and Stalin Harry has a secret Should it have been dropped? Why not show them the test? Did the Japanese test at Pearl Harbor? Germany in ruins The Soviet Army Taking Revenge Leader of the Soviet Union Wore a white disco jacket Looked like a pizza chef
going to a disco He was years ahead of his time. A Dictator Had no interest in democracy Was he really a communist? Or was he merely a dictator? What is communism? No private property
Centralized control
Economic "5 Year plans" Moscow would
determine production. Demand determined by the state His Name means "Steel" in Russian "An appeaser is one who feeds a
crocodile, hoping it will eat him last." That's not the reason Near Berlin The Germans hoped this would become the capital again British Prime Minister WWI gave birth to the Soviet Union His spies knew that the A-Bomb existed
He had to deal with a US that was armed
The balance of power was destroyed BFF NO LONGER 1946
Iron Curtain Speech Winston Churchill warns the world of the "Soviet Sphere" "Buffer States" used for protection
against another war with the west The world wasn't ready
to fight yet another war. Churchill was a retired citizen by this
time Troublesome
volcano He's dead now :( You can visit his grave in Oxford England It's very simple
no fanfare
no fuss What does a grave say about a person? Stalin's tomb Contrasted to No, this is not going to be on the test. Fulton University in the United States What is the mood of this newsreel? How have attitudes changed? Eastern Europeans were
deport so they could work
in Soviet Work camps
Industial equipment was
taken back as well Banks, trying to stay neutral in their
mountain hideaway MYP Guiding Question:
Who do you know to be your friends Why didn't the Japanese use maniquins in Manchuria? Why didn't they express their power that way? Would Hitler have shown restraint
if he had the bomb 1st? Keep in mind:
German internment camps
The expansionist nature of the Nazis I would argue dictator. His middle initial was S. but it didn't stand for anything.
but that wasn't his secret. America had a monopoly on nuclear weapons for several years and did not use nukes to expand any empire. "puny midgets" Canada provided the fuel Richland Washington http://kuow.org/program.php?id=19971 Nuclear tourism story Are there any other kind? 1945 -1989 WWII Test (feedback) Some excellent questions:
What argument can you make for America dropping the atomic bomb on Japan? - Khalid Bin Saif
What did Hitler do to ensure that his peopel were effecient and nationalistic? - Essa
What were some of the techniques that the Japanese used against the US during WWII - Shayda Was WWII America's "Good War"? MOST COMMON MISTAKE:

Many students wrote about how it was good for America, which is different from "good war". Look at the instructions closely:
For this question make sure that you show that you show that you recognize issues of equality, justice and responsiblity. Would the Japanese have done worse if they had the bomb?
Can any nation be perfect in how they behave during a war?
Is their behavior a matter of degrees of harshness? Suggestions for Next Time???????
* Two Days for the test
* Not writing the question
* American International
School blockade The Situation:

This evening on the Kuwaiti news, you hear this announcement from a Kuwaiti government official:

As April 28th all private schools in Kuwait will become public schools. This is in the interest of Kuwaiti unity and conformity. Effective immediately, private schools will become public schools and everyone will follow one curriculum under central planning and leadership. On the 29th all of the private schools agree to become public schools. Many of the teachers take pay cuts, leave, or are asked to leave, the books are replaced. Many students plan to leave the country, but many stay. AIS refused to comply. There is a lot of discussion happening between AIS students as to what is going to be happening. More news follows, this time it is international news on the BBC.

This evening the governments of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, and The United Arab Emirates have denounced the recent Kuwaiti government’s proclamation that private schools will become public. They will not go to war over the issue, but they have pledged support for those wishing to stay in private schools. Two days after the announcement, the water and electricity is cut off from the school. The school has one old generator that can supply some electricity.

Three days after the announcement, food shipments and shipments of any other kind are not allowed into the school. Students and teachers shop at the local stores to buy food. They carry their food in by hand.

Four days after the announcement, a new Kuwaiti currency begins circulation. If AIS students want to buy something from the bakala, they will have to exchange their old currency. 1 Old KD = .200 New KD (a loss of 80%). One Red Bull costs the 10 KD. Some people can’t resist and continue drinking it, their bank accounts schrink. The governments of the gulf have started to send shipments of goods by truck, but the Kuwaiti government puts in many regulations on what can be brought in. To complete the paperwork takes weeks, if not months. The Kuwaiti government tells AIS students that they are welcome to continue their school, but if they want to leave to go home, they will need to apply for a travel visa.

There are not restrictions on air traffic from the GCC to Kuwait. Predict

1)What will the GCC do to help AIS?
2)What are the logistics to for such help?
3)What would conditions be like at the school?
4)What new rules would have to be added to keep the school operating?
5)The entire world is watching this drama unfold. What will the public reaction be?
6)How long do you think AIS could hold out doing this?
7)What does this have to do with the cold war in Europe? They are having a very bad 20th century Containment - Stopping the spread of communism Truman doctrine Marshall Plan 17 billion dollars in US Aid
to rebuild Europe Allies afraid of a repeat of history Probably best not to have the Germans suffer. Also stimulated American industry Can't sit anywhere close to Mr. Stalin. Supply them with books and markers H bomb Much stronger than original bomb Worked on by both the Soviets and Americans Under President Eisenhower Under Krushev Civil Defense Playing the defensive in war. Bomb Shelters
Duck and Cover
Canned supplies Anchored Japanese Ships Joe Stalin Died (5–20 rem)
No symptoms. Potential for cancer and mutation of genetic material,

(20–50 rem)
No noticeable symptoms. White blood cell count decreases temporarily.

(50–100 rem)
Mild radiation sickness with headache and increased risk of infection caused by disruption of immunity cells. Temporary male sterility is possible.

(100–200 rem)
Light radiation poisoning, 10% fatality after 30 days. Typical symptoms include mild to moderate nausea, with occasional vomiting, beginning 3 to 6 hours after irradiation and lasting for up to one day. This is followed by a 10 to 14 day latent phase, after which light symptoms like general illness and fatigue appear probability. The immune system is depressed, with convalescence extended and increased risk of infection. Temporary male sterility is common. Spontaneous abortion or stillbirth will occur in pregnant women.

(200–300 rem)
Moderate radiation poisoning, 35% fatality after 30 days (LD 35/30). Nausea is common (100% at 3 Sv), with 50% risk of vomiting at 2.8 Sv. Symptoms onset at 1 to 6 hours after irradiation and last for 1 to 2 days. After that, there is a 7 to 14 day latent phase, after which the following symptoms appear: loss of hair all over the body (50% probability at 3 Sv), fatigue and general illness. There is a massive loss of leukocytes (white blood cells), greatly increasing the risk of infection. Permanent female sterility is possible. Convalescence takes one to several months.

[edit] 3–4 Sv (300–400 rem)
Severe radiation poisoning, 50% fatality after 30 days (LD 50/30). Other symptoms are similar to the 2–3 Sv dose, with uncontrollable bleeding in the mouth, under the skin and in the kidneys (50% probability at 4 Sv) after the latent phase.

Anatoly Dyatlov received a dose of 390 rem during the Chernobyl disaster. He died of heart failure in 1995 caused by radioactive exposure.[citation needed]

(400–600 rem)
Acute radiation poisoning, 60% fatality after 30 days (LD 60/30). Fatality increases from 60% at 4.5 Sv to 90% at 6 Sv (unless there is intense medical care). Symptoms start half an hour to two hours after irradiation and last for up to 2 days. After that, there is a 7 to 14 day latent phase, after which generally the same symptoms appear as with 3–4 Sv irradiation, with increased intensity. Female sterility is common at this point. Convalescence takes several months to a year. The primary causes of death (in general 2 to 12 weeks after irradiation) are infections and internal bleeding.

Harry K. Daghlian, Jr., a 24 year old Armenian- American nuclear physicist was irradiated with 510 rems (5.1 Sv) of neutron radiation on August 21, 1945 during a critical mass experiment. At the time he was working at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. The irradiation resulted in his death 28 days later.

Leonid Telyatnikov, a 35 year old Russian was the head of the fire department at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and led the team of firefighters to the fire at reactor number 4 which became the Chernobyl disaster. Despite the radiological dangers, they had no radiation suits, no respirators, and no working dosimeters. From results of a blood test it was estimated he received 4 grays of radiation. He succumbed to cancer Dec 2, 2004.

[edit] 6–10 Sv (600–1,000 rem)
Acute radiation poisoning, near 100% fatality after 14 days (LD 100/14). Survival depends on intense medical care. Bone marrow is nearly or completely destroyed, so a bone marrow transplant is required. Gastric and intestinal tissue are severely damaged. Symptoms start 15 to 30 minutes after irradiation and last for up to 2 days. Subsequently, there is a 5 to 10 day latent phase, after which the person dies of infection or internal bleeding. Recovery would take several years and probably would never be complete.

Devair Alves Ferreira received a dose of approximately 7.0 Sv (700 rem) during the Goiânia accident and survived, partially because of his fractionated exposure. James
