TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION (from the Watson article)

2. Why was poetry writing one of the requirements for persons taking the civil service exams? What good or bad effects might this have had on the development of poetry in Tang times? (Note that poetry was easy to grade on technical grounds. Also that making it a requirement on the exam meant that persons from all over the Chinese empire had to master the system of rhymes in use in the capital are, i.e., to learn the standard Chinese pronunciation of the time.)

This is one of those frequently asked questions in Geography class that sometimes results in increased confusion. The maker of this video has summed it up nicely.

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, November 8, 2013 2:44 AM

What makes a country a country is if they play by the rules, of other soverin nations on a global scale and follow the rules. Most countries recieve taxes from their citizens, have a military and a recognized as a soverin. Not every body of land is a country but are also properties controlled by other countries. There are countries in the South Pacific. In North, South America, Europe, and Asia, and bevcause of politcal geopgrahpy nations sizes are changing often and new countries are usually created from theis process

Joy Kinley's curator insight, October 27, 2013 6:22 PM

Most historians teach that Rome fell because of overexpansion, corruption and invasion.  But it makes sense that disease can foster the collapse of Rome.  Other diseases have led to the collapse of empires or systems, for example the Bubonic Plague is frequently cited as a cause of the collapse of the feudal system in Western Europe.  So overexpansion coupled with a massive outbreak would be devastating for an empire.

Nicole Balashov's curator insight, January 2, 2015 2:53 AM

The main idea of this interview is to give an aditional reasons to fall of Roman Empire, and this is spread of infective dieseases, that happen following climate changes.

Urbino: Italy’s Best Kept Secret

Urbino: Italy’s Best Kept Secret | Ancient City's | Scoop.it

Head south-east from Bologna an hour and you find yourself in Le Marche, a region defined by its rolling, green patchwork of land where towns perch on hilltops and red-tiled roofs amble downwards as far as the eye can see.
I found myself in Le Marche by turn of fate. I wasn’t supposed to be in Europe right now. I’m not quite sure where I was supposed to be – because that is how my lack of plans work, but in the midst of Europe’s prelude to the depths of winter? Uh-uh. No. Not me.
Yet, my plan to sell all my worldly goods in just one week (oh, the optimism – these items have been languishing in storage for three years), failed quickly. And so I lingered in England for longer than expected – which put me in exactly the right spot for an opportune invitation to Le Marche.
Did I want to come and explore the hilltop town of Urbino? The home of world-famous painter Raffaello? The place where Italian culture cuts deep through the community old and new? A student town so full of life it can’t be quietened, and you wouldn’t want it to be? A city, so small I’d call it a town, complete with all of the trappings of stereotypical Italian local life – the café culture, the cobbled streets, the makeshift markets held when produce is rife? Did I want to get under the skin of this city that was in the running for European Capital of Culture in 2019? [...]

Stonemasons are using traditional building methods (not modern) to repair damaged sections of the ancient Roman Wall.  Do you think that preserving this part of history is important enough to justify the cost?  This is a question that all governments have to consider at what price do you restore history or do you let monuments and artifacts decay.
