1. Using the six characteristics of the civilization described in Ch 1 (page 5), what are the specific characteristics of Roman Civilization described in this chapter? Use specific examples to support your conclusion.

One of the first characteristics mentioned is the Roman politics which were very elaborate. They had their chief executive officers know as Consuls and Praetors. There were 2 consuls chosen every year and they “administered the government and led the Roman army into battle” (98). They had the right to command or as they called it imperium. The Praetors generally took over only when the Consuls were in battle, but they can do the same thing that Consuls can. His number 1 duty was to execute justice. There were also Quaestors who were assistants to Consuls and Praetors, Aediles who supervised the games and watcher of the food supply. The Centuriate Assembly was the army doing political functions.

There was also a social division of 2 groups- Patricians who were direct descendants of original senators appointed during the King’s time and were considered wealthy landowners. They were the only ones who could be consuls, magistrates, and senators. The Plebeians were those who were poorer, unprivileged and were the larger of the two groups. Both groups could vote but only Patricians could be elected. Everyone can get married but you could not be a Patrician and marry and plebeian. Over time the Plebeians were tired of their lack of involvement and left the states but that made the Roman army weak so to bring them back they created the Tribunes of the Plebs (2 officers who protected the rights of plebeians). Which ten became the council of the plebs.

Roman religion was very involved in everyday life and Romans believed that they were totally dependent on the Gods. “The official state religion focused on the worship of a pantheon of gods and goddesses, including, Jupiter, Juno, Minerva, and Mars” (106). As time moved on, more gods and goddesses were added in and places worshiped new deities. Greek and Roman gods and goddesses were hand in hand (Greek Hermes=Roman Mercury) and this was called the Greco-Roman Religion. Each house had their own God or Goddess and it was the responsibility of the head of the household (the paterfamilias) to make sure that religious obligations were being met in the home.

Romans also depended on Greeks for artistic inspiration. They excelled in architecture and used many Greek styles in their artwork. They also were the first people to use concrete in a huge scale.

4. What were the main socio-economic and political problems Rome faced during the last century of the Republic? How do these problems and the attempts to solve them compare to the partisan politics we face in the United States today?

The main socio-economic and political problems that Rome faced were that the senators running the state were 1) in office for life so they could do anything they wanted with impunity. 2) A majority of the leaders can from a few families. so they would act with their own interest in mind. “Hence, the nobiles constituted a governing oligarchy whose members managed, through landed weath, patronage and intimidation, to maintain their hold over the magistrates and senate and thus guide the destiny of Rome while running the state in their own interests” (Spielvogel 112). The divide between those who had their own ideas vs those who wanted what was best for rome caused a large political fight. (Spielvogel 112). Then to make matters worse farmers were the main source of income for the republic and the Punic Wars destroyed or crippled many farms so most of the farmers just sold off their land so they didnt have to fix it all. That caused the most damage, because of this the nobles of Rome bought up the land but needed serfs or slaves to take care of it, but because military service was extended from 2 to 6 years no one was available and those who were there, could not afford the expensive crops of grapes and olives and farm animals like sheep. (Spielvogel 112). This can compare to today because there is a large gap in wealth, how 1% can control 50% of wealth. This creates many issues like how rome had problems so can the present. When you have such a large disparity and higher taxes on the poorer people create more poor people and the cycle continues until something breaks and it all falls or reform happens before something worse can happen.

Promotion and Product Life Cycle

Similar to an assignment you’ve already done.

All products/services go through a life cycle of NPI (new product introduction), growth, maturity and decline. These various stages affect the marketing strategy and promotional efforts. In Week 3, you will incorporate a product strategy that addresses at least 3 areas of the product life cycle. The primary objective of this assignment is to allow the student to demonstrate an understanding of the factors that can affect the launch of a product or service. A secondary objective is to understand the differences in a product launch in the U.S. (domestic market) and an international market.

Assignment Steps

Generate a minimum 700-word product strategy in Microsoft® Word.

Incorporate a product strategy that addresses the following:

  • At least three areas of the product life cycle (NPI-new product introduction, growth, maturity and decline).
  • How you will measure (what metrics will be used to determine success or failure) the marketing activities.
  • Create at least two different types of media methods for the products. One media method must be a print method and one must be non-print. A media method is a media strategy which highlights your product. For example, (this cannot be used in this assignment), a non-print media method would be a Facebook campaign that provides a user a reward for each review, positive or negative, posted about the use/appearance/price/etc. of the product. In your assignment, you should have 2-3 sentences about each media method (i.e. one paragraph of what you would do, not how to do it).
  • Address three elements of the Product and Promotion List (see below).
    • Product and Promotion List:
      • Integrated Marketing Communication
      • Advertising Strategy/Objectives
      • Push and Pull
      • Media Strategy
      • Advertising Execution
      • Direct Marketing
      • Public Relations/Strategies
      • Positioning

The plan will be a continuation of your global or multi-regional company you chose in Week 1(I chose Whole Foods Market). This will be incorporated into your overall marketing plan for Week 6.

Note: Charts/graphs/tables do not count toward the word count.

Cite a minimum of three peer-reviewed references.

its an homework question

  1. In another textbook, Introduction to World Religions, by Christopher Partridge, a claim is made about the religion(s) of Native American peoples. The claim is that “The tribal peoples of North America proclaim the One Great Spirit.” Your task in this homework assignment is to determine whether that is true or false given the evidence you have in our textbook, Invitation to World Religions, 2nd Edition. If you think it is true, you might give examples of different tribes and their beliefs, illustrating how they believe in the One Great Spirit. If you think the claim is false, you might give examples of different tribes and their beliefs, illustrating how they don’t believe in the One Great Spirit. You may need to interpret the name ‘One Great Spirit’ so that you and your reader (me and your peers) are clear on the claim. [You won’t be sharing these, but it helps to have an audience in mind.] In short, treat the claim as an hypothesis and set about confirming it or refuting it. Submissions should be typed and should be between 200 and 300 words. Keep “fluff” to a minimum. Provide enough details to identify the group or tradition you’re talking about, but stick to the topic as best as you can. Submissions will be analyzed using SafeAssign. Submissions will be graded using the rubric in Course Materials and in accordance with the policies on your syllabus. Outcomes: This assignment is particularly relevant to the following learning outcomes, among others: (a) Attitudes: develop a sense of appreciation for multiculturalism. (b) Skills: develop a critical and appreciative awareness of religious ideas and practices. (c) Knowledge/Content: identify the basic ideas, practices and institutions of five or more different religions, and analyze similarities and differences between religions and within the varieties within each religion studied.

Clash of Civilizations

Clash of Civilizations

For the Unit 9 Assignment, you will compose a 500 word essay comparing Huntington’s ‘Clash of Civilizations?’ article with one other political scientist and/or academic who has written a response to Huntington’s ‘Clash of Civilizations?’ article.

Within the introduction to Harvard Professor Samuel P. Huntington’s 1993, seminal political science article, ‘The Clash of Civilizations?’, the author noted,

World politics is entering a new phase and intellectuals have not hesitated to proliferate visions of what it will be, the end of history, the return of traditional rivalries between nation states, and the decline of the nation state from the conflicting pulls of tribalism and globalism, among others. Each of these visions catches aspects of the emerging reality. Yet they all miss a crucial, indeed a central, aspect of what global politics is likely to be in the coming years.

It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principal conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations. The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines between civilizations will be the battle lines of the future. (Huntington, 1993)

Huntington’s full article can be found here. Since Huntington’s article was published in 1993 many political scientists and/or academic have written in response to Huntington’s thesis – either agreeing or disagreeing with the Harvard professor’s ideas.

However, since the September 11, 2001 attacks on U.S. soil, Huntington’s thesis has renewed academic discourse.


Huntington, S. P. (1993). The Clash of Civilizations?. Foreign Affairs, 72(3), 22.

American Government : Explain how the Founders hoped to channel and check human nature, political science homework hlep

It needs to be 3-5 pages.

The Founders purposefully designed a government that would not depend solely on virtuous leaders or virtuous citizens to survive. However, many individuals—both then and today—believed that the American experiment still requires some degree of public virtue in order to succeed.

First, briefly explain how the Founders hoped to channel and check human nature, rather than make people good enough to rule well. Refer to specific principles, concepts, or constitutional structures in your answer.

Second, give your own answer to the question as to whether the United States needs “virtue” in order to survive. If so, how do you define virtue? How do we keep it?

If not, why not?
