“Wars and warfare changed very little in response to the Atlantic Revolutions and the Industrial Revolution”

In response to the Atlantic Revolutions and the Industrial Revolution, wars and warfare have changed significantly. Each revolution changed not only how war and warfare was conducted but had a remarkable impact on the character of war itself. Both of the Atlantic Revolutions and the Industrial Revolutions shaped warfare by instigating the implementation of a sense of nationalism, advanced technology, and tactics. The Napoleonic Wars, American Civil War, and the Crimean War are very good examples of how the Atlantic Revolutions and the Industrial revolutions influenced wars and warfare. Nationalism, an emerging movement, became increasingly noteworthy throughout the Napoleonic Wars, which was derived from the Atlantic Revolutions. The industrialization period prominently impacted on the American Civil War by bringing about vast improvements in technology and transportation, which deemed to have a profound effect on the social, economic and cultural conditions of the time. Enhanced technology and the evolution from pre modern warfare tactics are evident in Russia’s defeat by the British in the Crimean War. This again shows a direct correlation on how each revolution had a significant impact on how warfare is conducted.

Throughout the Napoleonic period there was an immense surge in the numbers that armies were yielding. The growth in armies is parallel to the sense of nationalism and patriotism that was flooding through society. This explosion of recruits was due to idealistic propaganda but also the inevitable product of war psychology that arises in people is similar to the French revolution where large recruitment rose through idealistic change. Through the use idealistic propaganda we also see the change in attitude within society to conscripting to…...

Atlantic Case

...1. Introduction and Problem Definition Jason Jowers, a newly minted MBA, had joined Atlantic Computer just four months ago as the youngest product manager. He would be responsible for developing the pricing strategy for the "Atlantic Bundle" (i.e., the new Tronn server and the PESA software tool), which had been developed specifically to meet an emerging basic server market, a new market to the company. But it had to compete with Zink server of Ontario Computer, its major rival in this market. 2. Situation analysis * External Analysis Since the basic server market had 36% compound annual growth rate through 2003, significantly higher than around 3% of high performance market, Atlantic Computer decided to penetrate the basic server market with its "Atlantic Bundle". But Atlantic Computer had no competitive market share in the basic market and had to fight against a strong competitor Ontario Computer which only focused on the basic server market with 50% revenue market share. In addition, for the business model of Ontario Computer that possessed “the most flexible and innovative supply chain strategy” was based on operational excellence, the company had been able to drive out many nonvalue-added costs and compete largely on price. For example, its major sales were generated online, saving lots of selling expenses. However, Atlantic Computer had already been a strong player with 20% of the revenue market share in high performance market, the largest market in......

...Departure and crossing of the Atlantic On 10 August 1519, the five ships under Magellan's command – Trinidad, San Antonio, Concepción, Victoria and Santiago – left Seville and descended the Guadalquivir River to Sanlúcar de Barrameda, at the mouth of the river. There they remained more than five weeks. Finally they set sail on 20 September. King Manuel I ordered a Portuguese naval detachment to pursue Magellan, but Magellan avoided them. After stopping at the Canary Islands, Magellan arrived at Cape Verde, where he set course for Cape St. Augustine in Brazil. On 27 November the expedition crossed the equator; on 6 December the crew sighted South America. As Brazil was Portuguese territory, Magellan avoided it and on 13 December anchored near present-day Rio de Janeiro. There the crew was resupplied, but bad conditions caused them to delay. Afterwards, they continued to sail south along South America's east coast, looking for the strait that Magellan believed would lead to the Spice Islands. The fleet reached Río de la Plata on 10 January 1520. For overwintering Magellan established a temporary settlement called Puerto San Julian on March 30, 1520. On Easter (April 1 and 2) a mutiny broke out involving three of the five ship captains. Magellan took quick and decisive action. Luis de Mendoza, the captain of Victoria, was killed by a party sent by Magellan and the ship was recovered. Then, after Concepcion's anchor cable had been secretly cut, the ship drifted towards the......

American Revolution

...American Revolution Section one American Revolution dates back to the early colonial years. During the stat of the year 1650, Great Britain began to control, limit and restrict their American colonists by forcing them to follow and adhere to some of harsh rule such as the Navigation Act. This restriction took effect alongside many more restrictions. Thus between the year 1650 and 1776, a number of the colonists found it difficult to enjoy freedom and finally they opted to unite and rebel against their home country. Among the causes of revolution were high taxation, legacy in political issues and general restriction of civil liberals. All these added up to the strong forces that propelled the colonists to revolve. This section is going to answer the big question whether or not the American Revolution was successful and the major reasons behind the success. To start with, the American Revolution was indeed successful. Several aspects highly contributed to this success. Americans were under what we can describe as the strongest and one of the most stable leadership ever in the region. For instance, they were led by people like General Washington George who were extremely skilled and mastered the entire terrain of the country. The Britain forces came from across the Atlantic Ocean and they had no prior knowledge and experience of the American revolutionaries combat. In addition, the British had a general problem of transporting and supplying their equipment across the large......

Atlantic Revolutions

...Chapter 17 Atlantic Revolutions and Their Echoes 1750–1914 MARGIN REVIEW QUESTIONS Q. In what ways did the ideas of the Enlightenment contribute to the Atlantic revolutions? • The Enlightenment promoted the idea that human political and social arrangements could be engineered, and improved, by human action. • New ideas of liberty, equality, free trade, religious tolerance, republicanism, human rationality, popular sovereignty, natural rights, the consent of the governed, and social contracts developed during the Enlightenment, providing the intellectual underpinnings of the Atlantic revolutions. Q. What was revolutionary about the American Revolution, and what was not? • The American Revolution was revolutionary in that it marked a decisive political change. • It was not revolutionary in that it sought to preserve the existing liberties of the colonies rather than to create new ones. Q. How did the French Revolution differ from the American Revolution? • While the American Revolution expressed the tensions of a colonial relationship with a distant imperial power, the French insurrection was driven by sharp conflicts within French society. • The French Revolution, especially during its first five years, was a much more violent, far-reaching, and radical movement than its American counterpart. • The French revolutionaries perceived themselves as starting from scratch in recreating the social order, while the Americans......

Atlantic Revolutions

...Atlantic Revolutions, 1600-1825 The revolutions of the eighteenth century have their origins in political and cultural developments of the seventeenth century. Of course, they were also products of all of major developments the European conquest of the Americas, the rise of kingdom states and empires, the tremendous wealth that resulted from the expansion of global trade, and the development of colonial cultures and societies in the Americas. Scholars call these cultures and societies creole societies, because they blended elements of European, native American, and African culture and society. Developments in England, 1641-1688 But revolutions are also inspired by ideas, and ideas that we may take for granted today had much of their start in England. Political conflict in Great Britain was a common theme of the seventeenth century. In 1641, a civil war led to the execution of the king (Charles I), and the establishment of a republic, what was known as the Commonwealth. Politics and religion both played a part in the Civil War, with the English nobility and wealthy commoners (whose interests were represented in Parliament, England’s legislature) wanting a greater say in how royal revenues were raised and spent. This republic quickly became a military dictatorship, and the old king’s son (Charles II) was invited back. But when Charles II died, the next king soon ran into trouble with Parliament, who feared that this king, James II, wanted too much power for himself. So......

Atlantic Case

...Case # 4: Atlantic Computer: A Bundle of Pricing Options Marketing Management II 2/11/2014 Price Recommendation The Value-in-Use (50/50) Pricing is the preferred pricing method to charge because it provides maximum profit to Atlantic while offering an extremely competitive product and value to the consumer. However, due to how conservative DayTraderJournal purchasers are, we recommend that this price is slightly reduced from $8,400 to $6,800 (profit-sharing becomes reduced to 78/22) for two Tronn/PESA bundles, to provide an equal acquisition cost of four Zinc servers. Even though two Tronn/PESA bundles provide twice as much capacity and significantly less possession costs, we believe that DayTraderJournal purchasers, who are most concerned about acquisition costs, DayTraderJournal purchasers will be turned off by a price that’s higher than the perceived competition’s ($6,800). Because the high value that the Tronn/PESA bundle provides is difficult to convey, the initial cost of the bundle should be reduced. Once Atlantic’s market share in the basic server industry becomes larger and the Tronn/PESA value is fully recognized by consumers, we believe that Atlantic can and should increase the price. Even though we propose a Value-In-Use Pricing of 78/22 (78% of the savings is passed on to the customer and 22% is kept by Atlantic), Atlantic still maintains a good profit margin of roughly 70% while saving the customer $6,000......

...The movement of recovered companies in present day Argentina truly is a “new workers” revolution in Argentina and a viable alternative to neo- liberalism. This movement exemplifies all the qualities that workers look for when part of a company. Equality, growth, and a pleasant working environment are most of the qualities that this movement provides. A revolution is a fundamental change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time. So this movement of recovered companies is truly a “new workers” revolution in Argentina. After these businesses where closed and caused many people to become unemployed it was up to the people to figure out how to feed their families and get their lives back. To many of the workers the company jobs were an extremely high source of income and also became a way of life due to the years they put in at the factory. So when everything for them hit the wall and it seemed as though they had no options at hand they knew they had to get the companies back up and running and that they could only depend on themselves to get that done. The government was not worried about making sure everyone was employed again and if everyone’s family was feed at that time. The most they wanted to do was collect the funds and any profit that they needed and continue on. This workers revolution is so significant because of the perseverance the people had to sustain in order to get the businesses back rolling. They went months......

Atlantic Slave Trade

...Atlantic Slave Trade In the mid-1400s, Portuguese ships sailed down to West African coast to avoid the Islamic North Africa that has monopolized the trade of sub-Saharan gold, spices, and other commodities that Europeans wanted. During these voyages there were many maritime discoveries that were unknown to European’s traditional limit of navigation, south of Cape Bojador, which with time will make it easier for them to navigate the Atlantic. At the beginning, Portuguese were only in the search of gold and other commodities, but with time their interest also went to the African people. Lancarote de Lagos, a Portuguese navigator, sailed in the Senegal River and captured a group of Africans and carried them off into slavery. During this period, race was not a major factor to be carried into slavery. Slaves were composed of many individuals of different ethnicities who were captured after a war, had a debt, and other situations. The Atlantic slave trade was set in motion mostly for the production of sugar. Nowadays, the production of such a benign thing such as sugar to have caused a massive slave trade is really hard to understand. However in those days sugar was not taken for granted. European’s ever-growing sweet tooth was the driving force for the development of the Atlantic world. Because the work of growing sugar was so burdensome, free workers would not do it willingly and that is why the industry came to depend upon slave labor. Starting in 1492 when Christopher......

The Atlantics

...Courtney Parker Prof. Aaron Lack American Popular Music 30 March 2015 The Atlantics Last Friday night, I went to see a live band performance at The Highball, located inside the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema on South Lamar in downtown Austin, TX. The band that performed was called, “The Atlantics”. There was a man stroking the hell out of the electric piano, a man finessing the drums and bassist making it look too easy, and another man doing the boogie with the saxophone sounding like heaven to the soul. Also there were two men playing the guitar, what a great collaboration, and a smooth fellow caressing the notes and keys to his trumpet. The group was led by two awesome vocalists of which were male and female. They had astounding voices and quickly aroused the audience, even captivating the local pedestrians who were strolling around the neighborhood. I believe the best part about this performance was that it was free admission and therefore, I had extra pocket change to snag a beer and socialize with other attendees. The set up and arrangements were nice and it all seemed well planned but I strongly felt that they could have used a bigger stage so they would have more room to dance and get jiggy with it. Other than that, I loved that they played several old school hits such as: Otis Redding’s “Sitting on the dock of the Bay,” Aretha Franklin’s “Respect,” and The Temptations’ “Poppa was a Rolling Stone.” The performance overall was a great mixture of instruments and vocals.......

The Atlantic Revolution

...In the late 1700’s, the main conflict throughout the Atlantic was freedom to all. This period showed many views from different people in ways in which they tried to express the word. People in the America’s and eastern nations such as France were trying to rebuild their nations with an idea that all men are created equal, that they are given the right not from authority, but by birth. From the “Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen” in France which was their laws to give men freedom, to a wealthy man in Venezuela named Simon Bolivar who helped free his country from Spanish rule only to struggle with making his country a federation after the destruction, you see that freedom is hard to concur. Independence cannot only be observed individually. When trying to build a successful nation there are rights of groups of people that need to be examined as well. Freedom comes as a nation, not as a man. The idea of human rights began with the “Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen” in France. This declaration mapped out the individual rights of men, very similar to the Declaration of Independence in the United States. Most importantly, this document expressed that all men are born free and equal, and that their rights are not dependent on their social status. This controversial idea was the start of a revolution, not only in France, but reaching out to colonial empires all over the Atlantic. Many questioned the legitimacy of these rights and whether they truly...

Atlantic Records

...Atlantic Record label is a widely recognized Music label for its many artist and also a timely figure in the music industry. Its best known for its recording of rhythms and blues, also rock and roll. After its fist 20 years in existing as a record label it was also recognized as one of the most important labels for independent African-American artist.In 1967 the Atlantic Music label expanded into rock and pop music by becoming a subsidiary owner of Warner bros-Seven Arts now known as the Warner Bros Music Group. This Record Label company was a partnership between Ahmet Ertegun And Herb Abramson. I agree with this type of ownership choice because when you go into the music industry its also good to have some that you trust to check over your decisions and make sure that you might not be making a mistake. Ahmet Ertegun was born in 1923 in Turkey and came into the U.S. at the age of 11.

Atlantic Computer

...ATLANTIC COMPUTER: A BUNDLE OF PRICING OPTIONS Situation Analysis Atlantic Computer is a manufacturer of servers and high-tech products. Two market segments exist in the server industry: High performance and Basic Servers. Atlantic Computers has held a 20% share of the High Performance market with their Radia servers being their premier product. However, the market for Basic servers is growing and this has caused Atlantic Computers to develop and introduce a Basic Server called the Tronn and a software tool called the “Performance Enhancing Server Accelerator” (PESA). The Tronn was developed mainly for the emerging US market opportunity for basic servers. The PESA would allow the Tronn to perform up to four times faster than its standard speed and make frequently requested information more accessible. Thus, bundling the Tronn and PESA made more sense. Atlantic is not concerned that the Tronn will be considered a substitute for its High Performance servers. Primary Concerns: What pricing strategy should Atlantic Computers implement to price the Atlantic Bundle? Model Customer In order to decide which pricing strategy to use, it is best to identify and use the basic server needs of a model customer. In this case, will be used as the model customer. is seeking four basic servers for their new website where day traders will be able to review articles and relevant training information.
