October 11, 2014 by mrcaseyhistory


Since you are preparing for debates now, and soon you will have a unit test and an interim assessment, you will need to go back to review and reexamine what we have already done in class. While you should already have all past class materials (glassworks and homeworks) in your binders, you may have misplaced some and need them again, or it may just be nice to have them all in one place. So to save you time, I have listed links to all the materials we have used in these past two units below.

It’s a... GIRAFFE! 🦒 The famous Muslim Chinese mariner #ZhengHe presented Emperor #Yongle and the #Chinese court with a #giraffe after arriving from an expedition to Bengala (now #Bangladesh) in 1412. Instantly awestruck by the strange and graceful animal, the emperor sparked a trend of painting giraffes among the #Ming. Each giraffe painting is marked with "The Eulogy of the #Qilin (Chinese unicorn), an Auspicious Omen." See more awesome Asian Art like this at @asianartmuseum <— Follow!

How I talk to people who don’t take Coronavirus seriously. #IKnowWhatHuntsYou #LOTR If you’re stuck inside with nothing to do, I highly recommend watching these movies, or even better, read the books. I think the books especially really give you a sense of the long, drawn out, increasingly difficult journey, as well as the need for fellowship during dark times.

I hope to see you all in the Spring. I am very relieved to hear this news, but let’s remember why this is happening. This is not a vacation. Be safe y’all. I haven’t heard any details yet so don’t ask me anything beyond this for now. If I hear anything useful I’ll let you guys know. Not sure what kind of remote learning system they may try, but I’ll keep you in the loop. You guys are already ahead by being connected with me on here. You know I’m ready to get creative to keep you educated and historically minded. I’ll try my best to post on here regularly as well to share history for those who are motivated to continue learning. Let’s hope we are able to open safely again in April. We don’t know. It could be longer. Remember, the goal is to #FlattenTheCurve. Also remember that this move will carry with it a lot of difficulty. Remember to regularly check in on your family, friends, neighbors, and classmates (virtually of course). We are in this together. We need to support each other during this difficult time. Stay safe. Love you guys.

🕋 An incredible image. Swipe to see how it looks most of the time... CORONAVIRUS fears have sparked the closure of #Kaaba, as Saudi officials closed the doors of Islam's holy site for a deep clean. . . From “The building in the centre of the Great Mosque of Mecca has been shut down and is completely empty of worshippers as Saudi Arabia works to prevent the spread of the deadly COVD-19 virus. Dr Yasir Qadhi, Islamic scholar, posted on Twitter: “Subhan Allah, the Ka'ba is empty, the tawaf has stopped as the authorities clean the Ḥaram because of the coronavirus scare. May Allah protect all of us!”” . . Honestly, I’m glad that they are taking these precautions. I wonder what will happen during Hajj season, if the virus is still a major threat by then. Will the entire pilgrimage of millions of people (who probably already dropped thousands of bucks to book their trips) be canceled? During the time of the Black Death in the 13th century, the Hajj pilgrimage, with Muslims coming from all over the world to Makkah (Mecca), May have contributed to the spread of the disease to new lands. Of course, long-distance trade and business was ongoing at that time. Today, it is of course so much more the case. The more interconnected we are, the more interdependent we are, the more vulnerable we are to destabilizing forces like epidemic diseases. These are the challenges we must face in our globalized world.
Globally, democracy is in decline. Only 22 countries were classified as full democracies. Our country was not one of them.
