The Preterritorial Period
During Circa 10,000 B.C, Prehistoric Paleo inhabitants were present in Arizona. On Circa 2,000 B.C., Cochise Culture was originated and developed in what is now called southern Arizona. The Cochise people are known for growing vegetables; they also grow corn. During Circa 300 B.C., Hohokam settled in southern Arizona. From 1000 B.C. through 1,000 A.D, the Hohokam and Anasazi people created irrigation canals, agricultural villages, roads, and also complex ceremonial centers. On 500 A.D., Sinagua were seen farming near San Francisco Peaks. The years 700-1100 A.D. showed great progress and developments. During this period, Anasazi culture was developed in its Pueblo Period. During this period they used adobe bricks, stone slabs, mud, and sticks in order to create homes. During this time period, Kivas(underground ceremonial chambers) and cotton fabrics were established. On 1064 A.D., Sunset Crater erupts. From the dates of 1276-1299 A.D., a Great drought occurs in Arizona. During Circa 1300 A.D., the Casa Grande is built near the Gila River. Finally, during the Circa 1400 A.D., a culture decline is prevalent among the pre-historic groups.

The Spanish Period
The Spanish Period occurred during the years of 1528 through 1821. From the years of 1528 to 1536, an eight-year odyssey of Cabeza de Vaca along with his companions occurred. They were shipwrecked off the coast of an area that is known today as Texas. After being shipwrecked in the area, they become interested in exploring the region. In 1539, Fray Marcos de Niza looks for the city of Cibola. He feels that this could possibly be the greatest Spanish discovery at the time and is encouraged to explore even farther. During the years of 1540-1542, Coronado explores areas in Spain the…...

Branches of Goverment

...review appealed district court cases (Whitehouse, 2012).” The executive branch consists of the President of the United States. The President also serves at the Commander of Chief to the armed forces. The President also has the job of implementing and forcing laws set by the U.S. Congress. The President must be 35 years of age, a U.S. citizen, and has lived in the United States for a total of 11 years. The President is elected by the people and the President is elected by the people every four years. The forefathers divided the U.S. government into three branches for the purpose of checks and balances. The branches have the power to check one another thus having a balance in power where one branch is not This approached has worked over the years and not one of the branches holds more power than the other. OBSTACLES THAT THE DIVISION OF POWER PRESENT The division of power is made up from 3 distinct departments: legislative, executive and judicial. This makes it hard to pass a law because of the many steps that it takes to vote on the bill and make it a law. For examples in the articles that were giving this week reading is talking about the health care reform. One of the obstacles would be to make the reform into a law it’s an important to make sure that the reform is over view because of the bill views this makes it even harder to start the right steps to look over the different way we could put it to test.

Study of Goverment Systems

...that was written when the country was founded, whereas the UK has an unwritten constitution, making it slightly more flexible (hence the new Supreme Court). 4. What is parlimentary sovereignty and how does it effect countries decisions in judicial review? Parliament is the only body which can make laws in the UK, and is therefore sovereign. No other authority can overrule or change the laws which parliament has made. Political commentators often say that parliament can do "what the hell it likes" in terms of law making. This generally means that the government of the day can pass legislation easily through parliament as long as it has a strong, supportive majority in the House of Commons. In Britain, therefore, statute law has precedence over the other sources of the unwritten constitution. However, the principle if parliamentary sovereignty cannot be found in any Act of Parliament. It is a part of common law which established itself as judicial rule in the late 17th century, following the 'Glorious Revolution' of 1608. Parliamentary sovereignty implies that parliament can pass, adopt or repeal any law it likes and it is not bound by any other previous parliaments' laws 5. What are the different electoral systems? Which promote two-party systems? Which promote multiparty systems? Plurality systems are the winner-take-all systems that are usually used in the United States. They include the common plurality systems like the single-member district plurality vote......

Corporate Goverment

... Within this system, many boards include some executives from the company (who are ex officio members of the board). Non-executive directors are expected to outnumber executive directors and hold key posts, including audit and compensation committees. The United States and the United Kingdom differ in one critical respect with regard to corporate governance: In the United Kingdom, the CEO generally does not also serve as Chairman of the Board, whereas in the US having the dual role is the norm, despite major misgivings regarding the impact on corporate governance. In the United States, corporations are directly governed by state laws, while the exchange (offering and trading) of securities in corporations (including shares) is governed by federal legislation. Many US states have adopted the Model Business Corporation Act, but the dominant state law for publicly traded corporations is Delaware, which continues to be the place of incorporation for the majority of publicly traded corporations. Individual rules for corporations are based upon the corporate charter and, less authoritatively, the corporate bylaws. Shareholders cannot initiate changes in the corporate charter although they can initiate changes to the corporate bylaws. * East Asia In 1997, the East Asian Financial Crisis severely affected the economies of  Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, and the Philippines through the exit of foreign capital after property assets collapsed.

The European parliament has roles legislating the impact on the environment, transport, equal opportunities, movement of workers and goods and consumers rights.

The creation of the SK is in response to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child to create an opportunity wherein youth can engage and represent their sector. In 1975 the first youth council was established during martial law by President Ferdinand Marcos. Presidential Decree (PD) 684 created the Kabataang Barangay (KB) to give the youth a chance to be involved in community affairs and to provide the government means to inform the youth of the government's development efforts. Sangguniang Kabataan has Emil Maristela as the national founder from 2007 to present. Argument 1: In my own opinion, I would agree in the abolition of the SK. Because nowadays political dynasty occurs in terms of politics even in local government, sometimes the barangay captain and Sk chairman is father and son scenario. That’s why the youth is exposing in corruption of their barangay. Argument 2: In my second opinion, I would disagree in the abolition of SK. Because there are youth of the nation that really wanted to help and serve his kabataan with all his will and faithfulness that he will do his best for them to serve and be a good example for the youth of the nation and be a symbol that every youth can make a......

Why the Goverment Is Important

...Every nation and country needs a government and a leader because without one everything would be a chaos. The government is important because the purpose of our government is to make laws for the society, provide for their citizens with public services, take charge of the economy and protect their freedoms. The government purpose is to organize the whole society by making laws, so we can follow them. Without the government people will do anything they please either harming themselves other people or properties, because there’s no laws or authorities that are there to maintain the order or enforce obedience. Laws can also reduce crime to a lower level and prevent crimes that can happen on a daily basis like robbery, fights, sexual assaults etc. That’s why is very important for the government and their laws to make sure the society be safe. One of the government purposes is to protect our freedoms. One of the most is freedom of speech which is the right to express ourselves about anything. Another is freedom of religion which is the right to practice whatever religions one choose, people religions and beliefs are very important in a person or families life, and they always should stay protected by the government.

Canadian Goverment

...allowed a two minute call which he used to call his wife and tell her to get him help. After this he was flown to New Jersey then to Amman Jordan, from there he was driven to the Syrian border. While in Syria he was beaten and tortured into giving false confessions of his involvement with al-Qaeda. He was kept in a cell the size of a coffin for just under a year while he was tortured and starved. He was eventually returned to Canada in large part due to the campaign by his wife . Arar’s case was an example of the legal process known as rendition which is the transport of a person to another jurisdiction. But Arar’s case was not just normal rendition; His was a case of extraordinary rendition. This is to say rendition that is beyond the law or the movement of one person to another jurisdiction without the legal authority or sanctioning required doing so. This process came to the fore front of the bush administration shortly after 9/11. When they started apprehending any persons they thought might have any connection to terrorism and deporting them to countries were torture and other forms of punishment were legal. In Maher Arar’s case he was taken to Syria which was known for its brutal torture of prisoners. In a normal case of rendition the government that the person will be sent to is notified directly and the person is transported there. This also did not happen in the case of Arar. He was first taken to Amman in Jordan because Syria refused to take him directly. Another......

A Corrupted Goverment

...the following question: How can we ensure the safety for Mexico’s Citizens and Others? Mexico is seen by many as a paradise or resort for vacationing at during the holidays- its tropical rainforests, white fine grained sand beaches, take breathing sceneries, and exotic wildlife is seen as a perfect get-away spot for one’s honeymoon. As people from around the world has seen the beautiful and calming side of the country, many have not bothered to pay much attention or concern to the unfair reforms, violence and poverty situations going on in all parts of Mexico. There have been shootings between small drugs cartels unfolding dramatically on open streets, abduction of children and students from drug associated gangs, and unfair reforms pf laws for the past years. For over the past 7 years, the people of Mexico have had to tolerate their presidents and their government with its empty promises and un-reachable goals. On December 2012, the successor of former President Felipe Calderón, Peña Nieto, came into office as the country’s new president and had promised his people to fix all troublesome situations and problems that are occurring in Mexico at the moment. He had told the public that he would uproot drug cartels, create reforms that will benefit the country, and have Mexico grow in the economy throughout his years of presidency; although people from outside of Mexico see him as a promising leader, his people are the only ones not applauding (supporting) for him. They have......

...government. Congress is accountable for making the law however it is checked as if successful it is enforced by the president. The president is checked by the Congress. For example, the president is commander-in-chief of the military but Congress holds significant authority by guiding the military. The president is also checked by the judiciary. Through judicial review the president’s engagements are checked for constitutionality. The judiciary is also checked. Article III judges are selected by the president. However, the Senate has to be in approval of the presidents selections. Another example of checks and balances is the fact that the president can veto a bill that was passed by Congress. However, Congress has the authority to override the president’s veto. There are separations of power but no branch is independent in the presentation of its purposes. “Because of these checks, inter-branch cooperation, especially between Congress and the president, is increased and the potential for unlawful, unethical, and unreasonable governmental behaviors is decreased.” As most people have seen in the news and online, President Obama declared executive orders on November 20, 2014 to help with immigration reform. Many people were angry that he took it upon himself to do this saying that it is illegal and immoral. Congress was working quickly to come up with a bill to block the President from this executive order, but could not pass it into law because of the Senate majority being......

...together to offer a hybrid of public and commercial services under the same umbrella. Examples:- e-Procurement, e-Company Registry, Tax On line and GIC Government to Government Model (G2G) According to Gregory (2007) G2G refers to the online communications between government organizations, departments and agencies based on a super-government database. Moreover, it refers to the relationship between governments. The efficiency and efficacy of processes are enhanced by the use of online communication and cooperation which allows for the sharing of databases and resources and the fusion of skills and capabilities. It renders information regarding compensation and benefit policies, training and learning opportunities, and civil rights laws in a readily accessible manner. The vital aim of G2G development is to enhance and improve inter-government organizational processes by streamlining cooperation and coordination. Governments depend on other levels of government within the state to effectively deliver services and allocate responsibilities. In promoting citizen-centric service, a single access point to government is the ultimate goal, for which cooperation among different governmental departments and agencies is necessary. G2G facilitates the sharing of databases, resources and capabilities, enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of processes. It represents internal systems and procedures which form the backbone of public organizations. G2G involves sharing......

Political risk is a procedural occurrence that significantly affects to flow of modern-state process resulting into significant development processes. Brown, (2008) explained the political decisions that are deliberately made would lead to uncoordinated migration from a projected state to a more politically motivated system that is capable of being obstructed by political forces. The focus on important causative agents exemplifies the sharpened political forces as well as heightened security concerns. The established goals are distinctly created through the effectiveness of the risks related to economic turnovers and generated landscapes. Lind, (1995) critically reasoned that a nationalistic approach is ultimately taken to ensure that governments enact specific laws and have them entrenched in their constitutions in order to allow the people to manage their modern-states. This argument placed the overall strategic concerns to a highly defined......
