Timeline For World War 2 – The World Goes to War

Ignoring the well-meaning, peace-keeping actions of the British and French, Hitler continued his attack on Poland, proceeding deeper into the country after the success of his initial attack. The ultimatum delivered by the Allies on September 1st demanded that he withdraw, but when Hitler blatantly ignored the request, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and France declared war on Germany on September 3rd. Within a few days, Canada, South Africa, and Nepal also joined the War on the side of the Allies.

Even with a declaration of war, both the UK and France were still unwilling to do everything they could to stop Hitler’s army, as the memory of World War I was still fresh in their minds. Despite treaty obligations, neither Britain nor France moved quickly enough to aid Poland. Their inaction, combined with the Soviet support for Hitler’s regime, resulted in Poland’s defeat in October 1939. In the timeline for WWII, the period between the autumn of 1939 and the spring of 1940 was known as the “Phoney War”, because little actual fighting occurred between the Axis and the Allies. Aside from seizing German ships and establishing a blockade, Britain and France acted with chiefly defensive strategies. Germany took advantage of that time, regrouping after conquering Poland and fortifying themselves for more powerful future offensives.

After aiding the Germans, the Soviets moved through Eastern Europe on their own agenda, seeking to conquer and acquire Baltic states. Their battles – including a confrontation with Finland – led to the penning of the Moscow Peace Treaty, which was signed on March 12, 1940. This granted the Soviets the ownership of some Finnish land, but also put an end to their attempts to annex Finland.

In April 1940, the Germans and the Allies fought against each other in their first major battle. The Norwegian Campaign, launched independently by both sides, sought to gain control of valuable Swedish resources including iron ore. After two months of battle Germany was victorious in claiming the land, though a significant percentage of their military, naval, and air resources had either been destroyed or needed to remain in Norway in order to maintain German control. Another faction of the German military invaded France and the Low Countries in May, and again quickly secured a victorious position. Managing to divide and conquer the Allied forces, (soldiers in the North were evacuated by the Allied Operation Dynamo), France signed an armistice with Germany on June 22, 1940.

A German puppet government was established to keep control of the area, and Paris – along with two-thirds of France – was conquered and occupied by the Axis. With only the UK left as opposition, Hitler and his generals developed Operation Sealion, a complex plan to gain control of Britain.

Violence in Video Games Goes to the Supreme Court

Video games are one of the most addicting things that have been developed right now. In fact, they have been around for a long time already. The thing about video games is that it is interactive. It allows players to be challenged on the puzzles that have been programmed in them. There are obstacles that need to be overcome and you have to be able to do that to get to the main goal in each video game. It also allows people to pass a long period of time without actually noticing it. This is also one of the reasons why such games played on television sets or on computers have become so popular.

There are different types of video games. You can notice that each one of them holds a story and you, as the player, have to work with the story. You will be given scenarios and you will have to be able to solve the problems presented in them. There are stories about fairies and saving forests and there are stories about unlikely heroes who have to save princesses and kings and leaders. However, there are also some which are violent and that is something that has made a number of people be against this type of technology.

In the state of California, there is already an appeal about violent video games and so a bill has been made. However, it seems like it has not been passed and so the state is already asking for it to be sent to the Supreme Court in hopes that it will become real and be mandated already. The law on violence in such addicting games talks about just which ones would be allowed to be sold and to whom they can be sold. Of course, this means that those that are quite violent should not be sold to those who are minors.

The appeal on the violence in video games is being worked on by Jerry Brown, the attorney general of California. He wants that the law be put back and he has brought the law already to the Supreme Court to be decided on. He wants the law reinstated so that violent video games should not be sold or even rented to minors. It has not been stated whether a Lexington law firm is helping the attorney general on this or if there have been Lexington law facts included in the whole deal. However, for many people, the law should be reinstated so that children and minors would not be introduced to violence that early.

How Ghost Halloween Costume Goes Your Ways

How Ghost Halloween Costume Goes Your Ways

To our rejoice and excitement, October 31 spotlight Halloween in the spotlight is around the corner. The point to note is that nothing exemplifies Halloween more than a Ghost Halloween Costume
. It is probably the easiest to make and can be as simple or complex as you wish. You know, traditionally, one would cut out two holes in a white sheet, for the eyes, color the outer circle of the eyes black, and just wear it as is. However, this Casper the Friendly Ghost type costume would be a bit of a problem if the sheet fell off and the child couldn’t see where he or she was going. So, here goes suggestion for the sake of making a perfect and stunning Ghost Halloween Costume.

Take a white sheet and cut a large enough hole so it can fit over the child’s head. Ensure that the bottom of the sheet is short enough so the child doesn’t trip over it.

Since October is a cool month, wearing white pants and a white turtleneck top would be recommended. Oh, don’t forget white shoes or sneakers. Now that the costume itself is ready to go, here comes the fun part.

Use a non-chemical white powder makeup to paint the face. Use black make up and make a complete circle carefully around the eyes. The hair is next. There are two ways you can go with this. You can either purchase a white wig, or you can spray the hair with white spray. Voila! This ghost is a winner!

The second ghost costume can be made directly from the movie “A Christmas Carol.”

How about dressing up as Marley? Using the same items as the first costume, the only difference is you will need a ball and chain to wrap around the Ghost Halloween costume.

You make a chain one using different colored pieces of construction paper. Cut the paper into strips, then take each strip and staple the ends together. Take another strip and put one end through the first and staple.

If you decided to make the ball to go with the chain, you can take lots of newspaper and scrunch it up into a ball and spray paint it black. You can attach it to the chain with a piece of wire.

One more thing, instead of making the child’s hair completely white, you can use a shower cap with holes it in, and spray it white. This way, it will look a bit more authentic. Remember, Marley’s hair wasn’t all white. Also, Marley wasn’t too well kept, so you can make some holes in the white sheet and add a little black spray on the bottom as well.

Anyway, hope everyone make a hit with Ghost Halloween Costume, Death Halloween Costumes
, or Scary Halloween Costumes
on hilarious Halloween Day and all the more have great fun on the very big day!

What Goes on During a Ghost Hunt?

Have you ever wondered what exactly goes on during an intense ghost hunt? Do you think that you would be scared of the unknown if you were going to join in on the fun of hunting for the paranormal?

There are many ghost hunting teams that are happy to take you along with them if you ask. Many will go way out of their way to show and teach you what they know about the paranormal. And who knows, you may just see a ghost or two during your hunt.

The first thing that happens when you start a journey in hunting for ghosts is that you will get your gear ready to go. You’ll get together your emf equipment, recorders, video cameras and all the other technical and non technical equipment and pack it up to go to the location. You will find that there are a lot things that you will need to bring along.

When you arrive on the site, the ghost hunting team will interview the owners of the place if there are owners (sometimes places are abandoned). Getting information on the area will help a lot in the hunt that is to get underway.

The team will then usually get their equipment set up and get ready for a long and interesting night of searching out the paranormal. Usually, if there is a house involved, this means that people will hang out in each of the rooms possibly speaking out to potential paranormal beings in the hopes for some kind of answer. Sometimes, pictures will also be taken of the area to see if anything comes from the developed picture that the eye did not see.

If you are interested in ghost hunting and maybe joining a team some night, check out your area to see if there are teams close to you. They can be just a short call away to get a hold of and you will find that a lot of them will be very happy to let you tag along.

Look at getting into the paranormal and learn how to hunt ghosts.
