Nuclear Non-Proliferation in the Ukraine
The geographic features of a nation or region have an important effect on the development of that nation or region. This effect is apparent in many in cases such geographic features as Japan being a group of islands or archipelago and the rain forest in Latin America. This essay will describe the effects of these features on there nation.
Japan is a group of islands called an archipelago. This influences the development of Japan because it limits the size of their usable land and since much of the land is mountainous it leaves even less usable land. The areas which are usable are heavily populated. Also another effect of the lack of land is limited farming. This leads Japan to one of there most plentiful resources, the ocean. Most of the Japanese nutrition is from fish and other sea foods. Since there is so much water it effects the temperature. There are no very cold winter or very warm summers. The ocean supplies for plenty of rain which lengthens the growing season.
Another instance of a geographic feature’s effect on a nation is the effect of the rain forest on Latin America. There is an abundant amount of rain in the rain forest (hence the name). The constant rain dissolves and washes away many of the nutrients in the soil. There are pools of water laying all around which supply disease laying insects with a place to lay there eggs and spread disease throughout the nation. The large amount of moisture causes mold on clothing and other possessions.
The above paragraphs show clear reasons how geographic features effect there region and that there are many good and bad effects of these features.

Counter MeasuresCounter Measures National Missile Defense (NMD) is once again a growing concern in America. There have been many new developments since the post-Cold War elimination of nuclear warfare. This diminishing of arms however, is a very fine line. The United States cannot afford to have less capability then the rest of the world, but it does want to encourage unilateral non-proliferation of nuclear arms. In addition, there is a new awareness of “rogue” nations that are completely unpredictable. Since t
Greenhouse EffectGreenhouse Effect The importance of the greenhouse effect was just conceived in the mid-twentieth century. “For billions of years, cosmic forces shaped Earth, and land and air coevolved at an almost inconceivably slow pace to create a climate in which human beings and other creatures could flourish.” (Franscesca Lyman). Now, for the first time, humanity has the power to change the global climate. By releasing the huge amounts of carbon stored in fossil fuels over millions of years, we are distor
Nuclear Weapon’s FutureNuclear Weapon’s Future For almost a half a century, the United States and the U.S.S.R. fought a nuclear arms war, the “Cold War.” The “Cold War” officially ended August 19, 1991, when the Soviet Union collapsed. Ironically, the war ended without a battle or a shot fired. In fact, nuclear weapons have only been used once. In the Second World War, the United States dropped two nuclear bombs, one on Hiroshima, the other on Nagasaki. So, what is the future of the Nuclear Weapons Policy, housed in t
ArthritisArthritis Arthritis is a general term for approximately 100 diseases that produce either INFLAMMATION of connective tissues, particularly in joints, or noninflammatory degeneration of these tissues. The word means joint inflammation, but because other structures are also affected, the diseases are often called connective tissue diseases. The terms rheumatism and rheumatic diseases are also used. Besides conditions so named, the diseases include gout, lupus erythematosus, ankylosing spondylitis,
Hhv-8Hhv-8 “Human Herpes Virus-8 (HHV-8) and Kaposi’s Sarcoma (KS)” Human herpes virus (HHV-8) poses a challenging task for researchers determining its role in Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS). People with KS are distinguished by their placement in four categories. The first category consists of elderly males of Mediterranean or Eastern European Jewish descent. The second category consists of individuals of all ages from Africa. Neither one of these categories is associated with immune deficiency or known envir
Anthrax VaccinationAnthrax Vaccination The anthrax vaccination is the only known defense available for United States Troops against the deadly anthrax virus. Many experts have said it is not effective against inhalation anthrax. Studies have not been conclusive in their findings. The chance of living if you have received the anthrax vaccination seems better. More studies should be conducted outside the Department of Defense, with their cooperation, before the process to vaccinate troops continues. Anthrax is a dis
Norwegian Security Policy after the Cold WarNorwegian Security Policy after the Cold War Despite widespread diplomatic discussion, and sentiment that the UN Security Council must be expanded in order to maintain its long-term legitimacy, no generally acceptable formula for expansion has emerged. Concerns for obtaining or retaining voting power, and for preserving a body structured so as to be able to take prompt and effective decisions, have prevented agreement. This article reviews various criteria for evaluating restructuring proposals,
Islamic Terrorism and The United States Islamic Terrorism and The United States PLSC 14H 04/26/01 The Threat of Islamic Terrorism With the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990\'s and the cold war over, the international community seemed to be on the threshold of an era of unprecedented peace and prosperity. Instead, a new series of problems was created, like ethnic conflicts, weapons proliferation, environmental problems, population growth, drug trafficking, and terrorism. Terrorism, as defined by Title 22 of the United Sta

PeacePeace Peace: it’s wonderful. Everyone likes it as much as the next man, and have none wish to be willfully gloomy at a moment when optimism about the future shape of the world abounds. My thesis in this essay is that we will soon regret the passing of the Cold War. I intend to show that it will not be the by-products of the Cold War — such as the Korean and Vietnam — that we will miss, but the order that it brought to the area of international relations. To be sure, no one will want to replay th

NATONATO INTRODUCTION Since the end of the Cold War, United States foreign policy has been affected more than in any other period in its history. With the fall of the Soviet Union and the break up of the Eastern European communist block the United States has been forced to reevaluate the way that it looks at that region of the world. Before 1949 Europe was a continent that saw more unrest and bloodshed in one century than in any other time in modern history. The twentieth century in Europe was marke
Nuclear WeaponsNuclear Weapons Peace is the sturdy child of terror. For me, such a peace is a wretched offspring, a peace that condemns us to live under a dark cloud of perpetual anxiety, a peace that codifies mankind\'s most murderous instincts. . . .The beast (nuclear weapons) must be chained, its soul expunged, its lair laid waste. This Winston Churchill quote summed up his feelings on nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction. Nuclear weapons have been used in war three times in their sixty-year ex

The Dangers of Nuclear ProgressThe Dangers of Nuclear Progress Sita 20th Century 4/30/98 In August of 1945, the United States dropped two atomic (nuclear) bombs on Japan, killing more than 140,000 people and leaving the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in ruins. The dropping of the bombs not only marked the end of World War II, but demonstrated the incredible power and effects of nuclear technology, as well. After seeing this, one would think that countries would realize the dangers of this new technology, and do something
Decline of the American EmpireDecline of the American Empire In any era there are different protagonists, playing the same game on a similar board. Like a game of monopoly, there are nations competing to become the foremost leaders of their time. They amass great wealth, powerful armies, and political sway. When the influence and might of these countries transcends the confines of their boundaries, so that they become a presence throughout the world, they become empires. At times, it seems as though one of these empires wins

Smuggling of Nuclear MaterialSmuggling of Nuclear Material Over the past five years the former states of the Soviet Union haven\'t been able to prevent the leakage of nuclear material. Nuclear materials and technologies are more accessible now than at any other time in history, due to the breakup of the Soviet Union and the worsening of economic conditions. No longer does the Soviet KGB, the Soviet military and the Soviet border guards have the control to stop the smuggling of nuclear material\'s. With the Cold War being ov
