In simple, worldview is just a term which reflects the human behavior, thoughts, feelings, morals, values regarding the nature. This term can be defined as human believes about world. Every individual have their own ideas or point of views about world which are influenced by the contemplations of books we read, shows or videos we watch and type of religion, society or family background attached with. In general worldview is mostly affected by culture (religion) and technology (science).
My thoughts regarding worldview are affected by both science and religion. I think now days if science says there is scarcity of any specific natural resource, 99.9% of people will believe in them because of evidence or information they have. So, people are more practical now, they need proof for single lines. On the other hand in this matters religious or cultural view of world are behind because of shortage or no proofs and evidence. I was born in India and mostly influenced by Hindu and Sikh religion. In Hindu religion some of trees, plants and animals are worshipped as god for example Ficus religiosa (peepal tree), Ocimum tenuiflorum (tulsai), and cow. But in country like Canada, USA and more Ocimum tenuiflorum (tulsai) plant is used as weed for smoking and cow beefs are favorite dish to eat. So, it shows different cultural views regarding our nature and earth.
I think there is direct relationship between natural world and humans. Humans are considered as “saver” as well as “destroyer” of natural world. As a destroyer human has invented many weapons, arms and bombs which are directly harming our natural resources. On the other hand they have invented solar panels which help in saving our natural resources like tree and also help in reducing pollution. A single step of humans like planting of tree can save our environment as well as single step by humans like cutting down of…...

... Mahan was born in a respected family of Kansapuram, a small village in Tamil Nadu  located in Ramnad District. His parents  were poor, Swamiji learned to be very hard working and industrious from his very early childhood.  He never went to school as he was not at all interested in education, but he was very pios and sincerely adhered to all religious practices. Being always restless, inquisitive and seeking the Truth, traveled to all the places of worship, observing various penances.  At the age of sixteen, he left India and went to Burma and lived with his uncle who was a businessman in Rangoon. An incident in his early childhood, sparked of his imagination towards GOD.  On 11.11.1911 exactly at 11.11 a.m. there was a great rejoicing and celebration. When he enquired about what happening, he was told that they are celebrating the coronation of the KING. This made be a great person. That is why, this pomp and pageantry are going on. Immediately another question arose in his mind that who is greater than KING and he ask the elders. They told him that “ GOD “ is the greater than KING. If so, he asked whether he could see the greatest of them all “ the GOD” and they said, YES, he could see the GOD if only, he observed all religions practices and became a staunch devotee.  This incident was a turning point in his life, and from that moment onwards the only aim in his life was to see the GOD. He used to pray  again and again, undergo varios penances and practice different types......

Terrorism

...1(Spindlove & Simonsen, 2010) Terrorism is an ideological and political concept.2 (Mahan & Griset, 2007) Some concepts and definitions are either too specific or too vague. The difficulty in assigning a truly comprehensive definition to terrorism lies in the fact that, not only is it challenging to be specific when motives, targets and methods differ so broadly from case-to-case, but the complexity of untangling the overlaps within each of these categories makes the task virtually impossible. In assessing the different perceptions, concepts and definitions of terrorism, it appears that the most disparity lies within the description of terrorist motivations. It is vital to be comprehensive in the categorization of motivations because the methods and targets selected by terrorists are often reflected by their purpose. This paper will examine contrasting perceptions regarding an event some call terrorism. Its nearly three years after the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting rampage in Fort Hood, Texas, an event some call "terrorism". Major Nidal Hasan, American-born an Muslim, currently faces the death penalty if convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. Maj.

...Some time ago, one of us asked, "Where is the theory of spacepower? Where is the Mahan for the final frontier?"1 Over 10 years later, such an exhortation still has resonance as the realm of spacepower still lacks a "space focused strategic theory" and a "binding concept" that can "aid understanding of what it is all about."2 This chapter seeks to provide an explanation, or at least plausible reasons, as to why such a theory of space-power has yet to transpire. First, we shall discuss the difficulties involved in creating a theory of spacepower that is able to endure the test of time and that has universal applicability. The chapter then examines recent attempts at theorizing on spacepower by James Oberg, Everett Dolman, and John Klein. Lastly, the chapter outlines what a theory of spacepower should look like, and just as importantly, what it should not look like, as a guide for future theorists. It should be noted that an exhortation of an "Alfred Thayer Mahan for the final frontier" is not to be confused with an endorsement of a Mahanian style of theory. Such a style of strategic theory may yet suffice (for the present, at least) for the purposes of guidance for spacepower, but we do encourage all plausible methods of elucidating a theory of space-power, be it directly influenced by the thought and style of either Mahan or of any other strategic theorist. Instead, the call for a Mahan for space-power is in fact a call for a theory that can match the stature of Mahan's......

...Expansion overseas was not a completely innovative idea seeing as the Monroe Doctrine (Issued in 1823 when Latin countries were revolting for independence) considered Latin America in the United States' sphere of influence. A State Department list, the "Instances of the Use of United States Armed Forces Abroad 1798-1945," recorded a quantity of 103 interventions of affairs of other countries between the years of 1798 and 1895. This showed that the use had ample experience in overseas investigation and interventions. Alfred T. Mahan, the Captain of the U.S. Navy, regarded as a popular propagandist for expansion, greatly influenced Theodore Roosevelt and other American leaders. Mahan thought that the country with the most powerful navy would inherit the earth. He believed we should build a canal, and to protect the canal by controlling Hawaii and Cuba, which he thought was a necessity. During this time, thoughts of Anglo-Saxon superiority were a common "excuse" for imperialism. The political scientist and professor of Columbia University, John Burgess said the Teutonic and Anglo-Saxon races were "particularly endowed with the capacity for establishing national states… they are entrusted… with the mission of conducting the political civilization of the modern world." Even before McKinley's presidency, he exhibited interest in foreign markets for the surplus of American products. This later on became an important when McKinley became president.

History

...de Alfred Thayer Mahan, considerado la principal táctica geopolítica de ese período. La grandeza nacional de Estados Unidos dependía de su expansión colonial sobre todo en las zonas del Caribe, Asia y el Pacífico. Mahan consideraba el Caribe una estrategia porque según él esta zona podría afectar a la ruta ístmica de Panamá. Ocho años antes de la guerra del 1898, Mahan ya se había percatado que la única forma para que Estados Unidos pudiera expandirse era conquistar colonias, y entonces él empieza a hacer un análisis de cuáles serían las colonias de su conveniencia. Mahan destacó en sus escritos que los países más importantes eran Cuba, La Española y Puerto Rico, es decir los países entre la línea de Yucatán a las Islas Vírgenes. Entre ellas Mahan expresa que las rutas marítimas más importantes al istmo panameño son: el estrecho de la Florida, el estrecho de Yucatán, el Paso de los Vientos, el Canal de la Mona, y el paso de Anegada. En general Mahan sigue buscando colonias para crear bases navales pero durante todos sus escritos recalca la gran importancia de Cuba. Luego otra preocupación de Mahan es controlar los accesos atlánticos al Caribe y propone a la Republica Dominicana y a Saint Thomas como lugares de estrategia. El problema de estos dos lugares es que Saint Thomas es muy pequeño y República Dominica no le ven esperanza de tener estabilidad política. Estos dos problemas solo dejan a Puerto Rico (isla ubicada entre estos dos puntos) como solución. Mahan no menciona a......

Japan

...Eastern side of the island chain, looking toward the Atlantic Ocean, and it boasts few natural resources, besides fishing. The geography of Japan and its proximity to its neighbors has shaped the strategic policy of Japan for centuries, and has driven the necessity of a strong navel strategy. However, it did not always have naval aims. During World War II, while Japan strongly relied on the writings on Alfred Thayer Mahan (1840-1914) in developing their national and naval strategy. However, their strategy had some fatal flaws that would prevent a victory or a negotiated settlement with the United States. Mahan is often compared to the highly esteemed Jomini and Clausewitz, who were famous for their land-based military strategy. However, many of his ideas were not new; they were derived from historical sources from which he distilled and clarified some major concepts. Mahan’s huge contribution to Navel strategy was the organization and the forceful presentations of those ideas. His influence on navy strategy was especially strong in Japan, where by 1907, Mahan felt that his works had been more translated than in any other language. In fact, he was so respected in Japan that in 1902 he was offered a teaching position at the Japanese Naval Staff College by Admiral Yamamoto Gombei. His best-known work is called, “The Influence of Sea Power upon History (1660-1783), and was published in 1890. This book contained three essential elements that contributed greatly to......

...Alliance) government intended to issue out a license of clearance to Hindalco Industries and Essar Power in 2006 to mine coal in Mahan. Mahan sits on one of the best sal forests in Madhya Pradesh, it is inhabited by some indigenous groups of people who view the forest as their only natural habitat. The coal block is on the periphery of Mahan Ban Forest while the area covered by coal is 9.8 square kilometer which, in essence, is 1.05% of the forest cover.(Agnihotri 2015) According to the government of Madhya Pradesh, 0.4-0.7 density of Mahan Forest is the one that comprises the Mahan Coal Block.( Agnihotri 2014). It is absurd to note that, was it not for the intervention by Greenpeace, the two companies (Hindalco and Essar) would have chopped down over 500,000 trees over about 1,000 hectares (Sethi 2015). Their activities would imply that the locals who depend on the forest for cattle herding and survival would have to either relocate or, they would perish from the harsh climate changes subsequently. Essar Company formulated a strategy, where they reached out to the prime minister, foreign affairs ministry, and the environment minister Jairam Ramesh. The minister for environment is on record citing, that he was being forced to clear the block as a fait accompli, but he suggested alternative blocks. Greenpeace with an intervention of 11 tribe members known as the Mahan Sangharsh Samiti (MSS) organized protests for their forest. Greenpeace subsequently took the issue up, this......

Mahanian or Corbettian Russo-Japanese War?

...by President Theodore Roosevelt following an impressive naval battle at Tsushima. After the Russo-Japanese War, both Alfred T. Mahan and Sir Julian Corbett provided their literary insights on the war and used the outcome to further illustrate their views on the role of sea power and its’ link to national greatness. Both strategic philosophers made credible justifications using the back drop of the war to support their theories, but only Corbett's analysis and previously published theories fully explained how an inferior force consisting of the Japanese Imperial Navy and the Imperial Army ultimately defeated the great power of Russian. Corbett's writings highlighted the need not only for a powerful Navy but also a powerful army to win a nation's wars. Corbett believed in a diverse naval force that would be used for battle, protection of commerce, protection of sea lines of communication, and commerce raiding rather than seeking a decisive battle. In contrast, Mahan believed in having full control/command of the sea to fight numerous battles using capital ships, ultimately culminating in a decisive battle that would tip the scales towards victory. Even though Mahan's theories were not completely supported throughout the Russo-Japanese War, many of his theories were applicable and still are today. Corbettian War Unlike Alfred T. Mahan, Sir Julian Corbett did not have any naval service or experience to directly support his theories on war. He instead developed......

The Sub-Registrar impounded the documents and forwarded these to the collector of stamps. The Collector of Stamps asked Mahan to appear before him. He neither appeared before the Collector of Stamps nor submitted any other documents. Mahan has instead filed a complaint before the Consumer Forum that he has been harassed for three years and that there has been deficiency in service on the part of Sub-Registrar and the Collector of Stamps. Will he succeed. Explain. Ans: Mahan will not succeed. Section 2(1) (g) of the Consumer protection Act, 1986 provides that, “deficiency” means any fault, imperfection, shortcoming or inadequacy in the quality, nature and manner of performance which is required to be maintained by or under any law for the time being in force or has been undertaken to be performed by a person in pursuance of a contract or otherwise in relation to any service.” Section 2(1)(o) of the Consumer protection Act, 1986 provides that “service” means service of any description which is made available to potential users and includes the provision of facilities in connection with banking, financing, insurance, transport, processing, supply of electrical or other energy, board or loading or both, housing construction...
