In 750 words answer the following in an essay form.

Nationalism, as pointed out both in the video lectures and the readings, was a prominent political ideology of the nineteenth century. Although it originated in Europe, it drove the aspirations of many peoples in the Ottoman provinces in the Middle East (e.g., Arabs of the Arabian Peninsula, Turks, Syrians and Kurds) and North Africa (e.g., Egyptians and Tunisians) to create their own separate nation-states. While the demise of the Ottoman Empire after WW1 provided an opportunity for some of the nationalist movements to succeed, others remarkably failed to produce independent statehood for their own people. Discuss at least two successful and two unsuccessful nationalist movements after WW1 and explain the reasons that have led to such variable outcomes.

There is no need to go into a discussion of developments in individual countries or in MENA as a whole. The emphasis should be on EXPLANATIONS rather than on descriiption of what happened. You are welcome to draw from outside sources but are in no way obliged to. If you do draw from outside sources make sure you provide appropriate information about each source you use.

I strongly discourage the use of direct quotes in your essays!

Explore Insects

In this assignment, you will look for insects around your home. This can be in your home or it can be in your yard (if you have one), a common area of an apartment/condo complex. Please remember to practice safe social distancing.
You will construct a well-written article on the following content:
Take a picture of 3 different Orders (groups) of Insects (we discussed 12 major ones in the lecture): Classify these pictures to the common name. These pictures must be taken by you, you are not allowed to use pictures from the web. You may take pictures of arthropod relatives also (recall from week one what makes an arthropod, an arthropod!).

In your own words, synthesize what you have learned while locating insects. Characterize and describe your observations: What did you see? Were you surprised by the insect diversity? Where did you find the insects?
https://www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-bugs-in-homes-20160805-snap-story.html (Links to an external site.)
This will be more of a graphical writing assignment with pictures and text. The Los Angeles Times article located above. can be used as an example. You are a journalist reporting what you saw on your expedition.
Introduce what you saw, what you learned, and display your pictures. Explain your insects to the audience. What do they do? Are they a pest? Beneficial? Your job is to help your reader better understand these insects you are viewing.

Article should be about a page long, maybe a bit longer. I am paying for 2 pages in order to include the 3 pictures the assignment requires.

I have attached the PP the professor provided of the group of insects the professor wants us to choose from.
