Two Heads are better than One: Why not have a study partner?

People dread the idea of studying for exams like CAT because the topics are extremely difficult or painfully boring. In such cases, studying with a partner is the best approach. It makes CAT preparation easier and more enjoyable. The study partner can be a classmate, friend, coworker, or family member. If your study partner is studying the same CAT topic you are, then you can work as a team in solving CAT… Continue

Broomhilda and her Wicked Instincts: A scary IEP story

I'm a writer. Some of my friends tell me how (very) cool I am for being a writer. If they could only see me now! I spend most of my day sitting in this same worn, green armchair, looking at the screen that now stares back at me. I always blink first. Cool. Some days while I stare at the screen, I switch it up a bit and drink a Diet Coke instead of a Diet green tea with citrus. When it's really cold, I'll heat up Dr. Pepper. I know, it's riveting!



But in my humble opinion, the very… Continue

What does autism "look" like?

Just as every person is different and has her own set of strengths and weaknesses, every person on the autism spectrum is different, as well. Too often we think "autism" and we have a preconceived notion of what that "looks like."



I attended a conference not long ago, and a bright educator named Paula Kluth gave a moving presentation about how most autistic behavior is nothing more than human behavior. The difference for those on the autism spectrum is... they don't always have the… Continue

Australia and Global Interest

How should the international community respond to this preoccupation of a country that is currently determined to put its perceived national interest ahead of both its immediate international obligations and a longer-term global interest? Sadly, most governments have only a short-term attention span in formulating public policy. They respond to the immediate demands of the most powerful voices in the community and have one eye on the more popular policy direction. There is little doubt that in… Continue

Australia’s Population and Family-Planning Programmes

Australia’s population and family-planning programmes rest on principles that reflect the priorities of Cairo. Individuals should decide freely the number and spacing of their children and have the information and means to exercise this choice. Access to safe and effective family-planning services is a fundamental right. Women should have access to a wide range of reproductive health services and should participate fully in defining the services they need. Family-planning programmes should… Continue

Rational Debate

Rational debate is a rare political luxury. Expert opinion and reasoned discussion have recently ceded to a negative populism, and the whole political and social atmosphere has changed in the country. One new and independent member of parliament in particular has attracted renewed attention to Australia’s immigration policy. Her trenchant and unfortunate criticism of immigration, particularly from non-English speaking countries, has ignited a polarized national race debate. Racist violence and… Continue

The Military Tour

The military tour of April-June 1947 promoted goodwill between Washington and Cairo, but it also "gummed up" Anglo-American relations as Graling anticipated. Twelve top Egyptian officers visited American bases and the Pentagon, observed military maneuvers, met with General Dwight D. Eisenhower, and decorated numerous Americans for bravery in the North Africa campaigns of the late world war. British officials learned of the tour through an Egyptian army informant and became suspicious of… Continue

"Where Shall Our Troops Go?"

State Department officials thought it unwise for Britain to make a rigid stand on the Bevin-Sidky terms. Although those terms "seem reasonable," Henderson thought the British should concede a few minor points that would not harm their strategic position to appease Egyptian national aspirations and facilitate settlement. He suggested that the British accelerate their evacuation of combat troops and make some concession on Sudan, such as increasing Egyptian participation in the civil service,… Continue

Soviet Interference

Ironically, concern with Soviet interference impelled Foreign Office officials to ask the State Department not to do exactly what they had asked it to do a month earlier. Scott-Fox retracted his request for American intervention, and British Minister John Balfour extracted assurances from Acheson and Henderson that the United States would not intervene in the AngloEgyptian controversy. On 25 April, Bevin raised the matter with Marshall during a break at the foreign ministers' meeting. Given… Continue

The Security Council

Scott-Fox's suggestion divided officials in the State Department who wished to avoid provoking Egyptian nationalism. Gordon P. Merriam, William L. Jenkins, and Christine Grant Harris of the Office of Near Eastern Affairs advised that the United States discourage Egypt as Scott-Fox requested. They predicted that Security Council hearings would only deepen Anglo-Egyptian intransigence. Acheson, however, asserted that American intervention would foment nationalism, and he wished to avoid… Continue

The British Determination

The number of troops constituting that presence also caused controversy in London. The COS used the collapse of the Bevin-Sidky agreement as a reason to slow evacuation from the Canal Zone, and on 30 April 1947, some 169,000 British personnel remained there, including 75,300 British servicemen, 20,600 non-United Kingdom troops under British command, and 73,000 Axis prisoners employed as laborers while awaiting repatriation. Take into account, you have an opportunity to buy… Continue

The Coordination of Anglo-American Policy toward Egypt in Early 1947

In early 1947, American policy toward the Anglo-Egyptian deadlock pursued the conflicting objectives of mollifying Egyptian nationalism while preserving vital Western strategic interests in Egypt. Expecting Egypt to appeal to the Security Council to order them to evacuate Egypt and Sudan, British officials sought full American support of their efforts to meet this challenge to their strategic and political interests. Take into account, you can buy… Continue
