Influence of Incas treasure in European development

Inca is a word that comes from the Quechua language and means "king" or "prince". It is the name given to prehistoric rulers of Cuzco, who established a vast empire in the Andes in the fifteenth century, shortly before the Spanish conquest.
The Incas were great conquerors, his empire was located in South America. He was from northern Chile south of Colombia, covering the present territories of Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador to the Pacific. Its territory was situated partly on the Andes.
But the name also applies to all subjects of the Inca Empire. The Incas settled the last and most developed of the ancient Andean civilizations.
To better manage such a vast territory, the Incas divided into four regions departing from the capital, Cuzco means "navel". Chinchasuyu, Antisuyu, Contisuyu and Collasuyu. These areas were divided into provinces and cities, composed of "ayllus".

Another major falsehoods spread that the anti-black legend are created: The famous alleged massive theft of precious metals, primarily gold and silver, by transporting it to the Spaniards leaving Spain and conquered territories impoverished and battered. Even many ask this fact demanding repairs to return it to Spain and to compensate countries that present "crime".

Needless to say, it is absolutely false that all the gold, silver, emeralds, pearls and other minerals or valuables were taken to Spain to the New World emptying of these products and taking into absolute poverty. A small part of everything that was extracted and the rest stayed in America was.

For starters wanted to comment that the gold, silver and other valuable minerals considered by Europeans had no economic value to the natives. They were only ornaments for their beauty and ease to be handled or used in some religious rites. In America in those years there…...

How Families Influence Child Development

...How Families Influence Child Development Family is an essential part of everyone’s development. A family can determine who you are going to be and your family values determine what your relationship with others will be like. If a family is dysfunctional or abusive it can emotionally scar an individual. Through time family values have been changed and lost. Instead of family togetherness and talking with each other, families now go on their separate ways. Examples, most families today don’t eat dinner together or partake in group activities. Our society thrives on independence and doing things on our own but has this changed the way people see the family. The most common comparison is the 1950’s to the 2000’s of today. This is good comparison because the 50’s was the time when family values were the highest priority. Although the 50’s were known as the greatest generation of our time, family values were what were most important. One example of a family would be the dad going to work and the mom staying home to take care of the house. This always showed the kids that there was one parent always there for help, with HW or to have a snack prepared after school. One thing the 50’s were known for were their family dinners that everyone in the household was there for. The family had outings and talked about issues they were having. One thing teens valued was the ability to speak to their parents about things they wanted to know. In today’s society family isn’t as......

Inca

...The Inca Empire founded around 1200 A.D. was an imperial society with a complex development of cosmologies. This Dynasty allowed for growth of population, resources and power through a newly founded concept of political economies. Prior to this new idealism of exploitation and control Tribal societies were solely based on subsistence living. Where the Inca population was divided into a ranking system by ascribed status; individuals in tribal societies gained small amounts of symbolic power threw achieved status. Another substantial difference between the two types of societies is the taxation system of the Inca empire verses the egalitarian foundations on which tribal societies are built. Control was obtained by the Inca Dynasty through manipulation of the societies cosmology. Therefore, by comparing the cosmologies of Imperial societies with those of tribal societies we are able to analise the extent to which social structure influences cultural transformation. Incas Political economy differed from the earlier tribal economy of subsistence, this allowed for power gain. Political economy refers to ‘a cultural pattern in which a central authority intervines in the production and distribution of goods.’ The central authority in any Imperial society is an elite minority believed to be within the lineal dissenience of the Gods. This is the concept of the divine kingship which can be seen in the Inca Empire. Unlike the subsistence economy of a tribal society, where production...

The Influence of Different Religions Into the Development of Art

...Art History I December 17, 2012 The Influence of Different Religions into the Development of Art The development of the relation of religion to life has been parallel to the development of art. Art always and everywhere has been a medium through which people have sought to express their religious beliefs, or a vehicle through which societies have sought to have their religion represented. Most part of the artworks produced in the past thousand years and more have had a massive religious content, whether, celebrating or representing Biblical narratives or seeking to express a human sense of the divine (Pateman, 1991). Much of it is the work of artists laboring to church commissions - artists who themselves may have had no particular religion and who would execute a religious commission in no different a spirit than a secular one. In the same way, religious art continues to interest and move people who think of themselves as non-believers in the existence of God or the immortality of the soul (Pateman, 1991). Several religious were/are practiced around the globe and the fundaments of these religious can be find and traced through significant artworks of the past that has been exclusively (religiously) committed to pass their beliefs to the next generation trough paintings, sculptures , architecture and etc. Unlike art in modern cultures, most ancient art was not created out of an impulse for self-expression of the artist or as a vehicle for casual entertainment.......

How Useful Are Theories of Integration to Understanding the Development of the European Union?

...are theories of integration to understanding the development of the European Union? BY IRABOR PETER ODION 07037830536 p24real2000@yahoo.com. “There is no historical precedent for the creation of a multinational, multicultural, and multilingual federation of states with mature social, economic, political and legal systems. In this regard the EU is a colossal and original enterprise.” From the beginnings of its development, there have many causes for the development of what is now the European Union (EU). This essay examines theories of integration and evaluates their validity in explaining the development of the EU. Then, by scrutinising these theories, this essay will seek to establish which, if any provide a comprehensive explanation for the development of the EU. Theories of integration offer explanations of how and why supranational governance has developed. Whilst there are undoubtedly many different causes and factors which have contributed to the development of the EU, this essay primarily focuses on neo-functionalism and intergovernmentalism as well as some new theories of integration which seek to explain the development. Although federalist and functionalist......

Influences of Childhood Development

...Influences of Childhood Development La Tesha Simpson PSY/600 Developmental Psychology July 15, 2013 Judy Pendleton, PsyD Influences of Childhood Development Children are impressionable and share the characteristics of a sponge in a sense, by means of picking up a spill and letting it ooze out of their personality or behavior. Children imitate most of what they see and hear whether negative or positive. Imitating is learning and learning is form of development. Everyone and everything can influence the choices children make during childhood. The purpose of this paper is to investigate influences of childhood development. Development of any kind during childhood can have life altering factors. Some of those factors will include career development starting during early childhood, economic resources in child development, and socioeconomic status and child development. This investigation will demonstrate whether the influences are healthy or unhealthy development during childhood. Career Development during Childhood Parents and professional role models may influence children in their career choice. For example, if a parent is a doctor a child may find that exciting and want to follow the footsteps of the parent. Perhaps, the child learns how police officers and fire fighters give back to the community and want to do the same. Career development start during childhood and covers the course of life (Porfeli & Lee, 2012). Researchers show how an individual......

Parents Influence on Child Development

...Parents play an important role in their children’s developmental stages such as; cognitive emotional health, social ability, personality and a healthy adult life. All four areas of a Childs development needs are influenced by their environment but most important their parents, or any power adult figure in their lives. If a child is born with a disorder, mental disability or illness of any type that is for a fact out of the parent’s control. In contrast, if a child slowly develops negative behavior in any four aspects, I believe the parents play a part in this. A parent influences what their child is exposed too, different people to new places. We were shown “Parenthood” a comedy that holds facts about family dynamics. For example Gil and Karen Buckman have a family of three kids, the oldest; Kevin needs to be in a special education environment. Due to Kevin’s behavior in school his teachers are able to detect an area in which he needs a more intimate learning experience. If any parent or myself were to have Kevin or a child similar to him, I would want him to accept his problem as well learn to live a healthy lifestyle. In order to make a child in Kevin’s shoes comfortable I would ensure he interacted with other kids his age who were both special ED and the regular student whenever he could, this way he would learn social skills. I believe that parents should tell their children why they love them, and have open relationships in order to build a strong bond from an early age....

Development of European Unin

...The development of the European Union was due to the travesties left behind via World war one initially, which resulted in the treaty of Versailles (1919) and was a peace settlement, signed only a year after the first world war, in an attempt to not only hold Germany and her allies to ransom but responsible, weak, in check and to punish them financially. The anger and resentment that built up in Nazi Germany as a result of the heavily imposed precautions set in the treaty of Versailles 1919 was part of the long term cause, which directly contributed to the cause of the second world war, short term causes such as Austria and Czechoslovakia in the 1930 also had a hand. Europe was crushed, due to these events as those involved underwent fatalities way beyond anything ever imagined So the need to prevent any further atrocities was seen as important so binding Germany's coal and steel industry (the strength of its war machines), into an economic and political alliance.

The Cultural Influences on an Infant's Development

...we are for it or against it; it is nearly impossible to find someone who doesn’t have an opinion about abortion. Since 1973 abortion has been an important issue within the United States. 1973 marks the year that the famous Rowe versus Wade case was decided before the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled that abortion be legal and available to all women. Legal abortions can be performed up to 24 weeks according to prochoice.org after twenty-four weeks most doctors or clinics will not perform the procedure unless keeping the baby presents a medical risk to the mother. I believe that every person is entitled to his or her own opinions, beliefs, thoughts, and rights. Denying women the right to choose abortion in the early stages of fetal development is denying her rights as a U.S. citizen and is also discrimination against her person. The moral question has always been whether or not it should be a woman’s decision to get an abortion. The other side of that question is whether the government should have control over a woman’s body and forbid her to get an abortion. Pro-life supporters believe that abortion is wrong because it involves the death of a human being on the other hand Pro-choice believes in woman’s right to choose. I am certain that abortion is a personal choice, and this freedom should be protected for all individuals. If the right to self determination is taken away, this country we saw call “land of the free” will be no more! In fact, doing so will be......

Factors That Influence High School Student’s Learning and Development

...FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT’S LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT Reflection “Adolescence is the conjugator of childhood and adulthood” according to Louise J. Kaplan. Adolescence is a period of transition in terms of physical, cognitive and socio-emotional changes. The aspect of individuality in adolescent development is very unique to each individual, but there are some issues which they may have a similarities. There is some changes on how they will interact to the other people which it can affect to their learning and development. There are some factors that influence the learning and development of the high school learners. Family, school, peers, technology or media, and internal factor are some of these. The relationship between the family members is a major factor that influences adolescent’s learning and development. If an adolescent belongs to a family which they usually have conflicts and has poor communication skills, it will have a negative effect on his behavior. He may not be able to focus on his studies; it is hard for him to acquire knowledge when he is depressed because of family problems. Therefore it is very important to have a good relationship between the family members and has an effective parenting which parents nurture, encourage and support (clear and consistent discipline) their children to prevent these negative effects. One of the factors that influence high school students is peers or a group of people having the same age. Peers are......

Socio-Cultural Influences Development

...An essay that critically examines the role of practitioners in recognising the socio-cultural influences on the development of children In the development of provision for children, traditional developmental theory has been highly influential: Over the years I have become frustrated by the strident emphasis on developmental theory in early childhood education (Walsh 2005:40) Particular relevance has been held concerning constructivist theory and the work of Piaget (1977) and Vygotsky (1978): The academic understanding of learning that underpins current trends in early childhood education are most significantly based upon principles of social constructivism that are drawn from both Vygotsky and Piaget (Anning et al 2008:153) Typically, traditional child development theory is thought to give order and meaning to a child’s progression in terms of physical, social, emotional, cognitive and language development and provides practitioners with a set of normative descriptors from which a child’s development can be measured. However, more recently these notions have been questioned and there has been a growth of theory from a socio-cultural perspective: recent challenges to ways of understanding and living in the world have included issues of difference, identity, culture, intellect, and economy…Early Childhood Educators have responded in various ways to such diversity. Many continue to support the developmentalist notion of the universal child…still others merge a......
