The Paris Peace Conference

The Paris Peace Conference, convened to build a lasting peace after World War I, approved the proposal to create the League of Nations (French: Société des Nations, German: Völkerbund) on 25 January 1919.[24] The Covenant of the League of Nations was drafted by a special commission, and the League was established by Part I of the Treaty of Versailles. On 28 June 1919,[25][26] 44 states signed the Covenant, including 31 states which had taken part in the war on the side of the Triple Entente or joined it during the conflict. Despite Wilson's efforts to establish and promote the League, for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in October 1919,[27] the United States did not join the League. Opposition in the U.S. Senate, particularly from Republican politicians Henry Cabot Lodge and William E. Borah, together with Wilson's refusal to compromise, ensured that the United States would not ratify the Covenant."

In other words it was created BECAUSE of WW1, to premote the peice and stop anything like that from happening again.

"Germany expected a treaty based on these fourteen points. However, negotiations between the 'big four' Lloyd George of England, Orlando of Italy, Clemenceau of France and Woodrow Wilson of America did not go smoothly. Wilson believed that his fourteen points was the only way to secure everlasting peace. The French however, wanted the defeated nations to be punished severely and believed Wilson's plan too lenient. Privately Lloyd George sided with Wilson although he was concerned about the threat from Communism, however, the British public, like Clemenceau, wanted Germany punished severely. Lloyd George knew that if he sided with Wilson he would lose the next election...."

...Paris Paris – My Dream City France has always been the country known for love, romance and glamour, and its capital is no exception to the rule. No other city on earth can have the stunning beauty, the unique style, the culture, the breath-taking food and literally a lifestyle like Paris can. That’s why Paris has become my dream city to go traveled. I had a chance to visit my grandmother in France when I was 14, and I know Paris is a great place to relax. For instance, I can take a moment to get an ice cream and enjoy the walk through many beautiful gardens. The green grass, the beauties of colorful flowers along with the amazing sound from the birds create a stunning picture for every single person. Beside all the gardens Paris has, Marais also is one of the best places in Paris for entertainment. The Right Bank usually is filled with fun people like the silence drama or the clown. The Marais is full of quaint streets comprised of unique shops and brasseries. Because of this, it is a haven for all ages with every possible need being satisfied. Paris is not only known for the beauty of the Marais but it also known for its architectural. For example, the massive former palace, the bridges and many churches are all over the places. The Pantheon, the St. Denis, Sainte Chapelle and some of the most famous glass and light in the world, and of course, Notre Dame - the heart of Paris. They all draw a stunning picture show the glory of France for tourist when they come to......

Implications of the Various Paris Peace Treaties

...Disenchantment of France, Italy, Bolshevik Russia and the defeated powers; implications of the USA’s failure to ratify the settlement French aims for Paris Peace Conference * France naturally wished to limit the Germany military as much as possible so future attacks would be impossible. France was angry at the unprovoked Schlieffen Plan which had led to death of over 1.3 million French soldiers aswell as had caused destruction of most of northern France. Losses and damages were tremendous and as a result France wanted to guarantee that Germany could never attack again. * Beside this France demanded the return of provinces Alsace and Lorraine. These had been annexed by Germany during the Franco-Prussian war. * France also desired the creation of the state of Poland, aswell as other states in central Europe such as Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia to balance German power. * France also wanted an independent Rhineland state which would weaken German economically. * France also wanted Saar as a compensation for war. French dissatisfaction with Treaty of Versailles * Georges Clemenceau, Prime Minister of France, did not get everything he wanted out of the Treaty. He was satisfied with Clause 231 (which blamed Germany for the war), the disarmament clauses of the treaty, getting back Alsace-Lorraine, and being given Germany colonies as mandates on behalf of the League of Nations.    * But even this did not go far enough. Clemenceau had wanted Germany......

Hotel Paris

...B- The Hotel Paris Case chapter 8 Question 1: Based on what you read in this chapter, what do you suggest Lisa and her team do first with respect to training? Why? Lisa should review employee performance evaluation forms to determine whether and where there are shortfalls. As well, they can review the customer feedbacks, because they can indicate whether training is needed for a particular position or trait. Question 2: Have Lisa and the CFO sufficiently investigated whether training is really called for? Why? What would you suggest? No, they did not. Although, large differences exist in such measures, it does not mean training is lacking. On-the-job training costs little and may be taking place on an informal basis, thus unmeasured. Additionally, such things as employee occupancy may be having an effect on training costs – employees who have been working in Hotel Paris for many years now may require less training than employees of a different hotel with a high turnover. Therefore, Lisa needs to analyze the need of training more thoroughly. Question 3: Based on what you have read in this chapter and what you may access via the Web, develop a detailed training program for one of these hotel positions: security guards, housekeeper, or valet/door person. Working as a housekeeper at a hotel is not as easy as it seems. One has so much to learn and to get right from the start in order that guests entering their room in the evening do not feel that the room has been used......

Peace

...Peace and justice has a lot of different meaning to different people. Some people define peace as a way to avoid negation or in common synonym harmony and tranquility while justice is the conformity to truth and reality in expressing opinions and in conduct. Two simple words but they carry out so much within them. These two words may seem different but they complement each other when said in one. Like people in different faith traditions, these people have different believes and different traditions but they’re perspective of peace and justice complement each other. They may not be the same but they are equally connected to each other. Like Martin Luther King, Martin a Baptist now referred to as human right icon of today. In his history of fighting for peace and justice he came across a lot of hardships, problems and has endured more than anything you could imagine. He always believed in the teaching of Mahatma Gandhi that there should be non-violence. And that everyone should live simple and should not try to look at the material things but only look to God. He would always implement peace and justice but no one listen they would always think of it as non sense, but in one of King’s speeches called “I Have a dream” everyone’s eyes opened to consciousness about civil rights. Dr. King’s vision of justice included men, women, sanitation workers, and union members. He knew that if their concerns were met they would together create a broad-based movement that would endure.

Peace

...regarding peace? Christianity and Islam both have had a distinct response to peace. Peace is the central teaching among both religions and the teaching of inner peace and world peace can be conveyed through sacred texts, principal teachings and organisations. In Christianity, teachings of peace derives from Christ in the New Testament. Peace is at the heart of Jesus’ life and ministry and accordingly it is a foundational element of the the Christian communities that seek to follow him. The New Testament extols peace as a virtue and identifies it as a key element of the reign of God. Jesus himself is known as the “prince of peace” and is regarded as the source of peace, meaning that by adherents living in a close relationship with him, they are allowing themselves to experience the peace in which he brings. The New Testament proclaims “Guide our feet into the way of peace” (Luke 1:79), which emphasises that following in the footsteps of Jesus, is the way to achieving inner peace. Peace is understood as more than merely an absence of violence and conflict. It refers more fully to an overall sense of wellbeing. Ultimately peace is found in union with God. Christians are taught to live at peace with others, both within their own communities and in the wider human family.Throughout the first three centuries of the common era Christians adopted a pacifist position and refused to engage in military service or warfare, leaving a distinctive response to the achievement of world......

Comments of the German Delegation to the Paris Peace Conference 1919

...Case Study Week Two: Comments of the German Delegation to the Paris Peace Conference 1919 1. According to the authors of Germany’s complaint. The various provisions of the treaty hurt Germany’s economy by forcing Germany to accept full responsibility for the damages caused not only by the Germans but also by everyone associated with them and the damage that was caused. As stated in the article, Comments of the German Delegation to the Paris Peace Conference, 1919 President Wilson recognized in his speech of 1916 “no single fact caused the war, but that in the last analysis the whole European system is in a deeper sense responsible for the war, with its combination of alliances and understandings, a complicated texture of intrigues and espionage that unfailingly caught the whole family of nations in its meshes”. Germany was being forced to accept responsibility for all the damage caused and to add insult to injury, the amount of compensation Germany was going to pay out was going to be determined solely by their enemy. With everything being determined by Germany’s enemy, Germany was denied basic rights to build the nation, and they were being forced to re-build for the benefit of foreign nations without any self-preservation. For example the building of canals and railroads at the discretion of foreign authorities. In simple terms Germany was completely left out. Everything being determined for Germany not only did not benefit them at all, they also did not have much of......

Fellow citizens of the world, lets make the world a better place for you and for me, for this is and should continue to be the cardinal reason for our coming together.

The government issues rules and laws and regulations to govern the realm as well as relationship with other nations, bilaterally and multilaterally. economic, social and religious interest are factors that affects the making of these laws, rules and regulation and its interpretation and implementation locally and internationally which often results to conflict and war hence there comes need to proffer solution for peaceful coexistence in this world we have found ourselves. Peace can be said to be an ideal freedom and happiness within all people and nations. It is a state of non-violence either voluntarily or by virtue of a system of governance that prevents warfare. Peace therefore means cessation of all sorts of hostility by all persons and nations. In certain cases, world peace has been seen and argued as unattainable because human by nature is violent hence rationally men choose to be violent. It remains also a proven fact that human being can change......
