An Overview of Belizean History Belize, the only English speaking country in Central America, emerged from being a mere settlement for pirates to an independent nation of patriots. The population of this diverse country is made up of Creole, Mestizo, Maya, Garifuna, East Indian, Chinese and Mennonites. In fact, each ethnic group plays a vital role in the remarkable history of Belize. The Europeans also contributed to what is now Belize. Nonetheless, to receive the essence of Belizean History, it is imperative to understand Belize from settlement, colony, crown colony to Independence. It is true of course that the Spanish were the first European power to settle on British Honduras, but the living conditions were not favorable to them so they left, giving way for the British pirates to settle. In fact, British pirates and Privateers initially came to raid Spanish ships and acquire some of their wealth. The mouth of the Belize River was used as a base and a safe haven for these pirates. In 1667, however, the Treaty of Madrid outlawed piracy and privateering. As a result of no Spanish presence in British Honduras, the freedom to cut logwood rather than steal, and no British presence in the area, the pirates decided to make British Honduras their permanent settlement and make their own laws. Bear in mind that British Honduras was still legally for Spain. The 1670 Gadolphine treaty stated that the Spanish gave up de jure lands to other European powers, and Belize was a de fact. Clearly then, a series of conflicts arose between the British and Spanish which led to the 1798 Battle of St. George’s Caye. The Baymen were victorious, and the Spaniards recognized their sovereignty. Nonetheless, Britain gave British Honduras back to Spain in the 1802 Treaty of Amiens. In 1821, Mexico and other Central American nations gained their Independence from Spain resulting in Spain losing her colonies on the mainland. The Spanish crown was then weakened, and
The Fire Next Time
Through the course of time, large groups of people have been enslaved by superior cultures. The Jews, whipped to build the great pyramids for the Egyptians, slave men who were forced to fight and die as gladiators in the Roman coliseum, and the Africans who were sold by their own people to the Europeans, all had to endure the cruelties of slavery.

HISTORY OF UNILEVER
Unilever has had a very long history with the Indian consumer. It has had its presence since 1888 when crates full of sunlight soap bars were noticed in the Kolkata Harbour with the words ‘Made By Lever Brothers’ embossed to it.
This long presence has helped it have an advantage over its competitors like P&G which came in way later around 1960’s.

The TakeoverDespite being poverty-stricken in the late fifteenth century, Europe would eventually make a huge comeback in world dominance.

Major world powers that had a vast effect on Europe’s transformation include China, Africa, and Latin America. This is exactly what Europe needed to get ahead in such a competitive….

An example of collaboration with the Germans was the Nazi-Soviet non-aggression pact. Under this 1939 pact the two nations agreed not to attack the other if it were to be in war another country, regardless of who started it. The treaty essentially bought time for both leaders as it allowed them to get what they want without the….

Yes, I do think Trina Rys had presents a logical argument on this topic. Unfortunately, for the past half- century, Western society's ideal female image has been that of an unrealistically thin young woman. When women focus on this impossible image as the ideal and strive to starve their bodies into submission, they suffer emotional and physical damage (Rys 165). This essay is about young women who slowly developed eating disorder and have distorted sense of what their body looks like.
