The Founding Fathers of our great nation, the United States of America are some of the most intelligent thinkers America has ever known. They envisioned the future of our country and acted accordingly. Their Constitution, which was applicable in the 1700s, is still followed nearly 250 years later. They envisioned a country run by an elected leader, with two houses or representation to ensure equal representation. Such a system is still used to great effect. They gave rights to the American people, rights that would not be seen in most monarchies of the time. Yet these rights endured and are followed today. Rights that many other countries took example from and implemented in their own societies. The foundation of our country was built upon the policies of the Founding Fathers. Domestic, Social, and Economic policies are still followed today, although not to the same extent as in the 1700s, but there is a clear link between American policies in the 21st century and American policies in the 18th century. Yet the policy that has been dramatically changed, the dogma that the founders of our country followed in all their wisdom, but we do not today, is foreign policy. American foreign policy of the 18th century was that of non-interventionism. We followed this ideology for quite some time, up until the Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt in which he changed our policy from non-interventionist to interventionist, from reactive to proactive. Our country changed our policy, and not for the better. By changing from a reactive government to a proactive government on foreign policy, our country has turned into an international target, painted for our aggressive and unnecessary actions that have negatively affected us and hurt us in more ways than one.
To understand the negative effects of our current foreign policy, the concept for blowback must be understood. Blowback is generally defined as unintended consequences of an action or situation. After Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency, America has had an increase in blowback situation. By involving ourselves in more conflicts it is only natural that American suffers more blowbacks. The concept may seem complex, how one action leads to a response that mediates another action and another response. An endless cycle essentially. To put it simply, look at the most significant blowbacks of our involvement in other countries, one of the most profound being Pearl Harbor. Although it can be argued that the Japanese attack on the Hawaiian port in support of the German campaign, that argument is illogical. The Japanese would never attack a neutral country as large and powerful as America and risk bringing them into the war thus tipping the scales in favor of the allies. The only logical solution was that America was in fact hurting Japan in some way, which would facilitate a response on the part of the Japanese in the form of a bombing run. Such an event did occur. The US in 1941 imposed an oil embargo on Japan that immediately threatened to cripple Japan’s economy and stifle their military campaign. So the Japanese attacked as their last resort. Another example of blowback is the atrocious attack on September 11th 2001. Although there are a multitude of reasons the terrorist attack occurred. One stands out, US Foreign Policy in the Middle East and their support for Israel. Our involvement in Israel and our support for that country initiated Osama Bin Laden’s hate for the United States (wherein he published a document entitled Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of Two Holy Places). Bin Laden’s critique of America had never been cultural, as propaganda would wish the public to believe. His hate stems from American involvement in his cultural and national affairs, it stems from American support of Israel over the Middle East, as a result result, the 9/11 terrorists plot formed (Paul). These two blatant examples of American involvement in foreign affairs have led to...

...Good afternoon Ms Tay, one and all, I’m Yong Kien and now I will go about summarizing and further emphasizing our stance and arguments for the upholding of non-intervention policy international relations.
However I would love to first bring everyone’s attention to the topic of discussion we have at hand today, of which is whether or not this policy of non-intervention should be upheld in international crisis, emphasis being on the word upheld. Now according to the English dictionary, the concise definition of the word is to maintain something, often referring to a custom or practice, in this case the policy of non-intervention. Under normal peaceful circumstances, it is most natural that most nations would intend to avoid the using of force over petty disputes, for instance the territorial ones regarding the Spratly or Diaoyu islands. It is definitely easy to maintain peace and orderly settling the many types of international issues and the majority of them are considered ordinary and trivial. That is, until there are pretty dire conditions which may distort the severity of how we define “ordinary circumstance”. If the world is forced to extreme circumstances, say, a worldwide war, for nations to continue calmly discussing possibilities of peaceful integration and treaties, it is but mere naivety of foolish thinking. This is exemplified most greatly when authorities actually believed in...
...Non verbal Communication
Good communication is the foundation of successful relationships, both personal and professional. But we communicate with much more than words. Most of the messages we send other people are nonverbal. Nonverbal communication includes our facial expressions, gestures, eye contact, posture, and tone of voice. The ability to understand and use nonverbal communication, or body language, is a powerful tool that can help you connect with others, express what you really mean, navigate challenging situations, and build better relationships.
What is nonverbal communication and body language?
Nonverbal communication, or body language, is a vital form of communication—a natural, unconscious language that broadcasts our true feelings and intentions in any given moment, and clues us in to the feelings and intentions of those around us.
When we interact with others, we continuously give and receive wordless signals. All of our nonverbal behaviors—the gestures we make, the way we sit, how fast or how loud we talk, how close we stand, how much eye contact we make—send strong messages. These messages don’t stop when you stop speaking either. Even when you’re silent, you’re still communicating nonverbally.
Oftentimes, what we say and what we communicate through body language are two totally different things. When faced with these mixed signals, the listener has to choose whether to believe your verbal or nonverbal message, and, in most cases,...
...Non-verbal communication at the beach.
In this essay I will discuss the various non verbal behaviors I observed on the beach during the weekend. I was at Jacksonville beach over the weekend and I watched the various beach goers having a good time. I live on Atlantic blvd and only about fifteen minutes away from the beach. I enjoy the drive to the beach and when I first moved to Jacksonville, the beach was one of my favorite locations. I still enjoy going to the beach and usually visit at least once a month. Growing up in England I didn't get a chance to enjoy the sun very much and even when going to the beach in Brighton, it wasn't that fun because it was a pebble beach. The beach like any location I could have chosen, has many different kinds of people of all ages. However during the weekend you usually see a lot of young men and women sunbathing, swimming or playing some games. As it was a very busy weekend and also since the tide can get loud, sometimes people resort to non verbal communication when they are unable to hear each other and even if they can hear each other a fair amount of nonverbal communication takes place. Non verbal communication usually serves some function, especially at the beach. Gestures and signals are used often at the beach; sometimes regardless of the level of the relationship.
While at the beach I observed many behaviors. The ambient noise of all the people and the tide...
