Discuss one alliance in existence in 1914, mentioning at least two important points such as; Geography, Arms Race, Nationalism, Expansionism, Historical Significance, Blood Ties/Natural Ties.

The outbreak of The Great War in 1914 was due to escalated tension between several countries, which resulted in forming a number of alliances. European countries created alliances because of fear. Countries became more scared of each other, and therefore decided to outline agreements in case of war. The Triple Entente was a significant alliance that was made between Russia, France and Britain to contradict the increasing threat from Germany, as well as prevent German Expansion in Europe. The Triple Entente was the name given to the alliance between Britain, Russia and France, after the signing of the Anglo-Russian Entente in 1907. In 1904 Britain and France had already allied together in the Entente Cordiale, which was created after France had finished the Franco-Russian Alliance in 1894. The Triple Entente was formed to combat aggressively against Germany. Kaiser Wilhelm’s intentions for a great empire formed a great deal of hate against Germany from various other countries.1[Wikispaces, Discussion Pg.] The Franco-Russian Alliance, along with the Anglo-Russian Entente and the Entente Cordiale, formed the Triple Entente between Britain, France and Russia.2 [Wikipedia, Triple Entente, Pg 1] Russia had been a member of the League of the Three Emperors with Austria-Hungary and Germany, until its collapse during 1884. German Chancellor Bismarck tried to keep an alliance with Russia which resulted in the Reinsurance Treaty of 1887. But, when Bismarck was dismissed from being Chancellor in 1890, Kaiser Wilhelm II failed to renew the Reinsurance Treaty and Russia formed a military alliance with France. Although Russia had the largest army of all the six European Powers, they struggled immensely when it came to the economic side of...

428, 460, 462, 468-70, 480-81, 493, 497
Who: Triple alliance refers to the alliance between the Mexica, the Acolhua, and the Tepanecs
Mexica: Aztec ethnic group that settled on the adjacent islands of Tenochtitlan and Tlatelolco, These were distinct communities, each with its own ruling lineage, but eventually Tenochtitlan overpowered Tlatelolco. The Mexica were so dominant in Mesoamerica in AD 1519 that their name was subsequently applied not only to their capital city, Tenochtitlan-Tlatelolco (Mexico City), but also, in the 19th century, to the whole nation: Mexico.
Alcolhua: Aztec ethnic group that occupied the eastern Basin of Mexico, and became the strongest allies of the Mexica. Their capital was at Texcoco.
Texcoco: Tollan (Tula)
Dominated northern and southern Mexico, Guatemala highlands, Yucatan peninsula and costa Rica
Population 30,000-60,000
40% worked obsidian mines
Contact and trade with:
Chichen Itza
Southwest US- Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Illinois
Tepanecs: Aztec ethnic group that occupied the western Basin of Mexico, and were overlords of the Mexica before the Tepanec War of c. 1430 forced a reversal of political dominance, and they became the Mexica’s second most powerful allies. Their capitals were at Tacuba/Tlacopan and Azcapotzalco

Triple Alliance (1882)
The Triple Alliance was the military alliance between Germany, Austria–Hungary, and Italy, (as opposing the TripleEntente which consisted of an alliance between Britain, France and Russia), that lasted from 1882[1] until the start of World War I in 1914.[2] Each member promised mutual support in the event of an attack by any other great powers, or for Germany and Italy, an attack by France alone. In a supplementary declaration, Italy specified that its undertakings could not be regarded as being directed against Great Britain. Shortly after renewing the Alliance in June 1902, Italy secretly extended a similar guarantee to France.[1] By a particular agreement, neither Austria–Hungary nor Italy would change the Status quo in Balkan area without a previous consultation.[3]
When Austria–Hungary found themselves at war in August 1914 with the rival TripleEntente (Britain, France, and the latter's ally, Russia), Italy pledged to support the Central Powers: Germany, Austria-Hungary, and later the Ottoman Empire (Turkey). However, because Germany and Austria–Hungary had taken the offensive while the Triple Alliance was supposed to have been a defensive alliance, Italy did not enter into the war. Later on, Italy entered the conflict on the side of the Entente against Austria–Hungary in May...

...things just as well, or better than their male counterpoints. Girls are supposed to be smart, docile, attractive, strong, self-sufficient, and all around the best at what they do. The triple bind is helpful to teenage girls because the triple bind helps girls strive for excellence in every activity they do to be just as good, or better than, boys.
The triple bind is an unspoken trilogy of rules that girls are supposed to live up to nowadays. Girls are now supposed to be good at “womanly” things (being kind, tolerant, sexy and obedient), to be good at “manly” things (being competitive, strong, and successful) and, to be perfect 100% of the time. These are contradicting views and some believe that it confuses women but others believe that it gives women more choice and gives them the respect of expecting that they can do more than just tend a home. The triple bind, according to the author of “What is the triple bind?” Stephen Hinshaw, is a set of rules that makes girls do everything and be perfect, but I believe that that is an over dramatization. The triple bind is a set of rules that push girls, but can be accepted as easily as they can be denied. Girls are the ones who feel the pressure, but there isn’t any one enforcing these rules or handing out punishments if they are not followed. The triple bind holds girls to the old standard of learning things so they could take care...

Triple Constraint
What is the Triple Constraint?
The triple constraint of project management is the balance of the project’s scope, time and cost. Triple constraint is used to determine whether or not a project’s objectives are being met. During the planning phase of a project, a project manager will define the scope, time, and cost of a project. As the planning phase continues, the project manager discovers that there may be some changes or adjustments needed in the project’s scope, time and/or cost. When one aspect needs change or adjustment, then it directly affects one of the other factors of the triple constraint.
For example, if the cost increases, it is logical to assume that the scope and time will increase as well. Or, if the cost decreases, one can assume that the scope and time will decrease. This rings true for scope and time as well. A project manager must be thorough and detailed in planning the scope, time and cost of a project in order to maintain the constraint or be prepared to fluctuate with it. Adjustments can be made during the project for various reasons to include changes made by the client as well. It is the project manager’s responsibility to be aware of the changes and how they will affect all aspects of the triple constraint and be prepared to modify each aspect accordingly.

A Pythagorean triple is a triple of positive integers a, b, and c such that a right triangle exists with legs a, b, and hypotenuse c (Bluman, 2005). A Pythagorean triple is a triple of positive integers (a, b, c) where a2 + b2 = c2. A triple is simply a right triangle whose sides are positive integers. An easy way to generate Pythagorean triples is to multiply any known Pythagorean triple by an integer (any integer) (Vargas, 2008).
In project #4, pg. 522, (Mathematics in Our World) introduced some new information to add to my mathematics knowledge of numbers. The numbers 3, 4, and 5 are called Pythagorean triples since 32 + 42 = 52. The numbers 5, 12, and 13 are also Pythagorean triples since 52 + 122 = 132. Can you find any other Pythagorean triples? Actually, there is a set of formulas that will generate an infinite number of Pythagorean triples and write a brief report on the subject (Bluman, 2005).
When asked to find any other Pythagorean triples, I found 5, choosing 2 integers, m and n, with m less than n (Manuel, 2010). Three formulas I choose to form the Pythagorean triple, which can be calculated from:
n2 – m2
2mn
n2 + m2 (Manuel, 2010).

Pythagorean Triples
Pythagorean Theorem states that the sum of the areas of the two squares formed along the two small sides of a right angled triangle equals the area of the square formed along the longest.
￼
If a, b, and c are positive integers, they are together called Pythagorean Triples.
The smallest such Pythagorean Triple is 3, 4 and 5. It can be seen that 32 + 42 = 52 (9+16=25).
Here are some examples:
￼￼￼
Endless
The set of Pythagorean Triples is endless.
It is easy to prove this with the help of the first Pythagorean triple, (3, 4, and 5):
Let n be any integer greater than 1: 3n, 4n and 5n would also be a set of Pythagorean triple. This is true because:
(3n)2 + (4n)2 = (5n)2
￼￼￼
￼
So, you can make infinite triples just using the (3,4,5) triple.
Euclid's Proof that there are Infinitely Many Pythagorean Triples
However, Euclid used a different reasoning to prove the set of Pythagorean triples is unending.
The proof was based on the fact that the difference of the squares of any two consecutive numbers is always an odd number.
For example, 22 - 12 = 4-1 = 3, 152 - 142 = 225-196 = 29.
And also every odd number can be expressed as a difference of the squares of two consecutive numbers. Have a look at this table...

...World.
1. Make sure you build or generate at least five more Pythagorean Triples using one of the many formulas available online for doing this.
2. After building your triples, verify each of them in the Pythagorean Theorem equation.
Exercise #4:
The numbers 3, 4, and 5 are called Pythagorean triples since 32+42=52. The numbers 5, 12, and 13 are also Pythagorean triples since 52+122=132. Can you find any other Pythagorean triples? Actually, there is a set of formulas that will generate an infinite number of Pythagorean triples. Research the topic of Pythagorean triples and write a brief report on the subject.
You can generate Pythagorean triples using the following expressions:
Pick two positive integers, m and n, with m less than n.
Then the three numbers that form the Pythagorean triple can be calculated from:
Running Head: PYTHAGOREAN 3
n² - m²
2mn
n² + m²
Examples:
1) m = 3, n = 4
n² - m² = (4)² - (3)² = 16 - 9 = 7
2mn = 2(3)(4) = 24
n² + m² = (4)² + (3)² = 16 + 9 = 25
Triple: 7, 24, 25
Check:
(7)² + (24)² = (25)²
49 + 576 = 625
625 = 625

2) m = 1, n = 3
n² - m² = (3)² -...
