Tennis

A serve begins every point of a tennis match. The player who initiates the point is called the server, and the one who receives the ball is called the receiver. To serve, a player tosses the ball into the air and strikes it before it touches the ground, hitting it into the opponent's service area, known as the service box. Although players usually employ an overhand motion to serve, it is permissible to strike the ball underhanded.

American Football - atestat

American Football is a game played on a rectangular field by two opposing teams with an inflated leather ball that is roughly oval in shape. The object of the game is to score points by carrying the ball across the opponent’s goal line or by kicking the ball through the opponent’s goal posts. Football is considered a full-contact sport, meaning that play involves bodily contact by way of checking, blocking, grabbing, and tackling. Because of the rough physical nature of the game, playing football can cause injuries.

American Literature

By the end of the 19th century American drama was moving steadily toward realism, illuminating the rough or seamy side of life and creating more believable characters. Realism remained the dominant trend of the 20th century in both comedies and tragedies. American drama achieved international recognition with the psychological realism of plays by Eugene O’Neill and their searing investigation of characters’ inner lives. As the century advanced, the number of topics considered suitable for drama broadened to encompass race, gender, sexuality, and death.


Beginnings: 1600s AND 1700s

African american history

Africans and their descendants have been a part of the story of the Americas at least since the late 1400s. As scouts, interpreters, navigators, and military men, blacks were among those who first encountered Native Americans. Beginning in the colonial period, African Americans provided most of the labor on which European settlement, development, and wealth depended, especially after European wars and diseases decimated Native Americans.

Alfred Mahan si geopolitica americana

În viziunea autorului american, pentru a deveni o mare putere, o ţară trebuie să îndeplinească trei condiţii sau criterii. În primul rând, trebuie să se învecineze pe o lungime considerabilă cu oceanul planetar sau să aibă acces la acesta printr-o mare deschisă spre oceanul planetar. În al doilea rând, să nu aibă în vecinătatea imediată vecini puternici. În sfârşit, să dispună de o capacitate navală şi de un potenţial militar ridicat al flotei marine. Toate aceste trei criterii, apreciază Mahan, au fost întrunite de Marea Britanie.

Socializarea se face intr-un mediu valoric rezultat prin cumularea modelelor de comportament create de generatiile anterioare. De aceea, la inceput, societatea (si socialul ca sistem de valori) ii apar individului ca straine, contribuind la constientizarea existentei "alter-ilor". Ego si alter, prin geneza lor, raman esentialmente sociale si corelative in dinamica spatiului social global. "Omul" e mai curand un produs social,
