Liberal America and the Third World: Political Development Ideas in Foreign Aid and Social Science

Two hundred years ago, in the era of Enlightenment, liberalism became a pinnacle, which promised a bright future. Indeed, in the last decades, liberalism began to turn into political practice, which, adopting free-market principles and globalization, political correctness and tolerance, brings prosperity to most citizens.

Third world countries

Traditionally, the world has long been divided into groups of countries. There are first world, second world, and third world countries.

First world countries are considered the most educated, civilized, cultural countries in which everything is streamlined, with rapid development of technology. In context of education, you are encouraged to take a look at this link to learn about secrets behind world’s most mysterious books.

Second world countries are those where there is some central planning in cities, but there is often no novelty and luxury. The population is not always well educated but it is quite clever and savvy having access to some basic blessings of civilization like water, light, and communication means.

Third world countries include a huge number of countries, which are highly diverse in principle. They are united by primitiveness and sluggishness of a local population (a hallmark of such countries is to shout “hello” at the sight of a foreigner and poke fingers at them, which is not accepted in first and second worlds). Citizens have quite undeveloped communication, technical, and even writing or reading skills, which they use for their work in coursework writing service. Villages are often characterized by medieval poverty and primitivism, and cities are chaotic with clogged sellers sidewalks, dirty yards, and crowded streets. Education and economic growth in such countries are often a problem.

Foreign aid of the US toward third world countries

A foreign aid is an official policy of the United States carried out through channels of international organizations and on a bilateral basis, with a view to promoting an economic and political development of Third World countries based on America’s socio-economic and political model.

Its concept appeared at stage of a collapse of colonial empires and acquisition of independence by Asia and Africa. America as a whole supported the aim of newly independent states for development, hoping to prevent a spread of communist ideology in Third World with their help.

The second task of liberal America’s policy of foreign aid was to adjust an evolution of Third World countries according to American models, which should guarantee political conflict-free relations in America’s cooperation with developing states, and also ensure the political and economic dominance of developed countries in the world.

The foreign aid is provided to Third World countries in different forms, but conceptually, such aid programs funded by America are based on priorities formulated by the development theory. Today such priorities include ensuring the rule of law, promoting the democratic development of society, creating a small private sector, ensuring basic needs of the population.

The American development theory originated in framework of not economic, but political science and, at the initial stage, was based on concepts of social transformation. The developmental theory was based on paradigm of social evolution of classical sociology, the movement of society in its development from simple to complex, higher forms. The theory of development proceeds from recognition of America as the highest form of development. Direction of movement toward American models was formulated differently by different authors: movement from status to contract (G. Main), a transition from traditional power forms to rational bureaucracy (M. Weber), progress from mechanical to organic solidarity (E. Durkheim ).

All modern programs of foreign aid are, to some degree, aimed at resolving political tasks: spreading democracy, improving governance, developing civil society, fighting corruption, and so on.

Characteristic in this regard is an activity of American Millennium Challenge Corporation, established in 2004. The strategy for new state corporation was formulated as “the combination of a more meaningful contribution by developed states to greater responsibility of developing states.”

MCC provides economic and social aid to developing countries in form of grants, provided that they demonstrate desire for economic growth. Namely, openness to foreign investment, rule of law, inviolability of private property, improve a system of public administration, win or substantially reduce corruption, help for needs of the population, not the elite.

Official MCC documents state that corporation is a strategically important lever for spreading “soft power” of the United States and should be viewed as an important tool of US foreign policy. Program is built in such a way that local elites are faced with a choice: either not to get help, or to adjust their domestic policies. In 2009, current US president provided the corporation with 2.2 billion dollars. To date, 14 countries have used the corporation’s grants, including Armenia and Mongolia, for a total of $ 4.5 billion.

 

VR online gaming development in 2016

VR online gaming development in 2016 managed to at least bring the industry closer to what a lot of people have been wanting for years. Many people have been dreaming about games that are so realistic that they are going to swear that they are happening all around them. There are games now that are at least getting closer and closer to that conclusion in terms of their graphics and their overall mechanics. However, the important thing is that in 2016, the technology surrounding all of this improved.

The year 2016 is going to be known for augmented reality in particular. The Pokemon Go game is already the sort of game that can go on to define an era, at least in the beginning of that point in time. A lot of people love this game. Many developers were worried that Pokemon Go was not really ready at the level that it was. However, since this is a game that was so incredibly popular, it seems that it was ready empirically. The game still managed to make a lot of money and to make history, and there aren’t a lot of other games like that anywhere and at any point.

It is possible that in the online casino gaming world, augmented reality is going to be right around the corner. People might be able to just look through their wearable devices in order to see something that is imposed on reality. The Pokemon characters that are present on the screen in the Pokemon Go games are already enough to convince a lot of people that they are seeing things. These tiny characters can truly alter the entire look of a room. Almost anything related to online casino gaming would be much more dramatic than that. Many people might be able to feel as if they are in a land based casino as a result of an augmented reality online casino game of that nature, and that is only going to bring people further to a fantasy of a lot of online casino gaming fans.

People might have a lot of different expectations when they play games at the All Slots casino online. All slots Online Casino games are going to be fun for a lot of people. Many of these people are going to hope that the games have a certain familiarity to them. People who are used to land based casinos are going to want games that manage to recall those land based casinos. Lots of other people want to be able to really lose themselves in these games, and that means feeling as if the games are really part of the world. When it comes to augmented reality, this is going to be even easier for a lot of people. They will really feel as if the games that they like are all around them and that they are part of the world. When they look through the view screen, that is what they are going to see, and that is enough to make it real.

David Schwartz talks about scoring “Arrested Development”

David Schwartz is known best for scoring the TV series “Arrested Development”. He was nominated in the 2013 Emmy for the Outstanding Music Composition for A Series for Original Dramatic Score for the show’s revival on Netflix. Media Mikes had a chance to chat with David about his work on the show.

Mike Gencarelli: Were you shocked when you found out that you were nominated for an 2013 Emmy for the Outstanding Music Composition for A Series (Original Dramatic Score) category?
David Schwartz: More surprised than shocked. It was particular great to be nominated for Arrested Development. Comedies are rarely nominated in the Original Dramatic Score category. I think the category represents a lot of great music this year, so I’m proud to be a part of it.

MG: Working on “Arrested Development”, how does it compare to be working on the first run of the show and now the Netflix series?
DS: It’s been a little different in some ways we were doing all 15 shows at once. In the first three seasons, we’d usually have about a week to turn around a show, finish it, and then immediately start on the next one. During season 4, we were often dealing with multiple shows at the same time. The episodes being longer also allowed me to further develop some musical ideas which wasn’t possible in the shorter format.

MG: What was the most challenge aspect of working on season four?
DS: After six years it was a challenge to get back into that musical head space. Once I had rough cuts and was writing it for real, it all came back to me.

MG: Going from a TV series like “Arrested Development” to a documentary like “Gonzo: The Life and Times of Hunter S. Thompson”, how does it compare?
DS: The Gonzo documentary was a really fun project. Alex Gibney, the director, really encouraged me to write bold and wild music in the spirit of of Hunter Thompson himself. Often documentary music is subtle and plays in the background. Alex inspired me to write bolder and more challenging music for this film.

MG: Tell us about your work with Lucy Schwartz on her upcoming full length record?
DS: I’m very proud of the work Lucy and I did together on her new Timekeeper record. I think these are her best songs yet and we had a great time producing this record together.

MG: Of all the great scores of 2013 so far, what has been some of your favorites?
DS: I’m still catching up on this year’s scores. I was a big fan of Michael Dynna’s “Life of Pi” score and Thomas Newmann’s score for “Skyfall”

MG: What else do you have in the cards for this year and on wards?
DS: I’m working on the soundtrack album for Arrested Development. It’s going to have some extended versions of the more popular songs from Arrested. There are some scoring projects in the works, but I won’t talk about it and risk jinxing it until it’s final.

Book Review “Tales From Development Hell: The Greatest Movies Never Made?”

Author: David Hughes
Paperback: 368 pages
Publisher: Titan Books
Updated Expanded Edition
Release Date: February 28, 2012

Our Score: 5 out of 5 stars

In the past few months I have found myself becoming a very big fan of author’s David Hughes. His last book “The Greatest Sci-Fi Movies Never Made” is similar to this one but focuses in one genre. “Tales From Development Hell” is backed by amazing research and just proves that Hughes knows his films. When I first started to get into movies very deeply I always wanted “Jaws 5” to be made during the 90’s and I would constantly see the words show up development hell…and 20+ years still no “Jaws 5”. It is truly a writers, directors and stars worst nightmare where the scripts are written, actors hired and sets designed…but no production.

This newly updated and expanded edition includes two new chapters that are worth the purchase alone. The previously last chapter “The Incredible Shrinking Film” is expanded focusing in-depth on James Cameron’s then-planned remake of “Fantastic Voyage” and his journey.  The new final chapter which was added is called ” Tales from the Script”.  Since Hughes is an screenwriter himself he knows what it is like to go through development hell with a script.  In the chapter he focuses on his own Hollywood struggles and projects in limbo.  It is a very great chapter and is a breath of fresh air for all aspiring screenwriters.

I seem too learn something new with each of Hughes’ books.  In this one, I discovered that The Beatles were once in talks to star in “The Lord of the Rings”…The Beatles?! Also Clint Eastwood was once talked about starring in a planned “Batman” film.  Those two alone are impressive enough for me (and boy am I happy they never got made). Along with Hughes’ amazing research he also does a great job with getting interesting exclusive interviews with the writers and directors involved with some of these lost projects.  It is a true must for all movie buffs.
