As an American, have you ever claimed to be Canadian while traveling abroad? How did that work out for you?
I’ve done the opposite. I’m Canadian and tried to pass myself off as an American while hitchhiking in Sweden in 1985.I had been on the side of the road for a few hours with no luck. I had a rolled up foam mat at the bottom of my backpack with a large coloured Canadian flag facing the oncoming cars.I figured it was time of a change of strategy. I pulled out my red marker and drew an American flag. I knew that Americans were popular in places like Poland from what I had heard but not sure about Sweden. Might be the opposite. I took the view that maybe someone would like to give an American a good mouthful about Reagan and American policies.Well, it did work. Within minutes a car stopped, I threw the bag in the back and hopped in. A few kilometres down the road, the driver says to me:”So you are from the States?”“No, I’m from the southern part of Canada but we can sound just like Americans at times” I said, shrugging my shoulders..He gave me a weird look and I managed to get to my destination before nightfall.
What did Russian aristocrats do after the Russian Revolution once they escaped abroad? How were they treated?
White Russians arriving at Western European shores. In this painting, you can see decorated generals, officers, cossacks and finely-dressed noble-born ladies. Many believed their exile would be temporary and were unaware that they would never see their homeland again.Fear and apprehension, anger and despair filled the minds of the thousand of aristocratic Russian refugees as they fled their homeland. Once the White army was defeated, it was either death or exile. Those who were brave remained in Russia but faced imminent death in Siberian camps or to be brutally shot. Most slipped away abroad, to relative safety.The lucky ones managed to escape with a few treasured necklaces, rings or other heirlooms that would supplement their living abroad. Prince Felix Yusupov, heir to the largest fortune in Russia, was able to smuggle out two Rembrandt paintings that he later sold for a fortune.Prince Felix Yusupov escaped Russia aboard the HMS Marlborough with his wife Princess Irinia.Russian refugees spread through-out Western Europe, many choosing to settle in Paris or Berlin. London was the least hospitable place to go because the Britsh Government were reluctant to accept Russian migrants onto British shores during a time when the working-class were praising the Russian revolution and Bolshevikism.Some Russians found themselves in Constantinople but found the city backwards with its dirty streets and unfamiliar Islamic setting. Many left and headed towards Western Europe. The same occurred in Beijing, China.Paris was the most popular hot spot for Russian refugees who viewed the city as the centre of civilization. Parisian high-culture was adopted by the Russian upper-class during the 18th century so many felt at ease in Paris versus other European cities.Paris was quickly awash with White Russian generals, officers, artists, intellectuals and Russian aristocrats who knew little of ordinary, working life.Most Russian men who escaped the revolution were mostly trained for military life and had little knowledge of other careers. They knew how to ready their troops for combat, make strategic decision-making, supervise their army and lead men into battle. Many were unprepared to toil their lives away as labourers.White Russian officers in Exile. The loss of their military power and wealth made them feel emasculated.The loss of power and wealth made many Russian aristocrats unable to accept the end of their golden years and strongly believed that Russia will revert back to its original state.So delusional were the former ruling class that they even kept their suitcases unpacked in case of an imminent return. Count Felix Sumarokov-Elston who owned vineyards in Crimea collected empty glass bottles in his room that he planned to use once he returned to Russia.Europeans were cruel and belittled the Russian refugees: “nostalgia, fatalism, balalaikas, lugubrious songs of the volga, a crimson shirt, a frenzied dance- such is the Russian emigration,” wrote one Parisian newspaper.Russians were often the last ones to be hired for certain occupations due to discrimination. Lack of government support and humanitarian aid for Russian refugees made many bitter towards their European counterparts.Paul Gorguloff, a White Russian emigre, assassinated French President Paul Doumer on the pretext that he did little to help the White Russian community. His lasts words before he was executed were, "Россия, моя страна!" (Russia, my country!)Paul Gorguloff arrested after assassinating the President of France.During their time in exile, Russians often chose careers in fashion and arts. Coco Chanel hired many Russian aristocrats to work in her fashion house and enjoyed the idea that high-born ladies were working under her, a once impoverished and low-born orphan.Former Russian generals and officers found themselves driving taxis for a living. Unlike other employers, Taxi companies preferred to hire Russians because of their stance against forming unions since it reminded them of Bolshevik uprisings.Russian emigre woman were educated in needle-work and embroidery at a young age. “Duchesses and countesses began to produce embroidered accessories, costume jewelry, embroidered fabrics, clothes and interior design items in the Slavonic style.”  During a time when these woman once visited glamorous European cities to purchase lavish dresses, they were now creating their own fashionable clothes in Paris, Berlin and London.Countess Irina Golitisina, member of the aristocratic family Golitsyn and founder of the fashion house Galitzine.The most savvy of aristocratic Russians married wealthy Americans who were known as the nouveau riche. Rich Americans craved aristocratic credentials and used their money to marry the most influential Russian aristocrats or royals. During the height of Imperial Russia, these ruling elites would’ve frowned at such a marriage and were downright rude or hostile to wealthy Americans because of their common background.Because of their new circumstance as stateless people, the snobbery faded quickly and titled aristocrats married wealthy American commoners.Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich Romanov married Audrey Emery, an American real-estate heiress.Prince Serge Obolensky married Ava Alice Astor, a member of the prominent and wealthy Astor family.The former ruling-class of Imperial Russia were no longer aristocrats with palaces, jewellery and vast wealth. They were now ordinary people with an extraordinary past. Despite their hardship, they vigorously passed their traditions and culture to the younger generation.Today, descendants can still recall their grandparents description of the fleecy white snow of the Russian winter and the sunlit birch trees that sparkled in the spring and glowed in the summer.When a descendent of the famous writer Leo Tolstoy first set foot into Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union, she described how she felt truly at home.Their story is the uncommon tale of riches to rags and the hardships they faced in a foreign land. Ultimately, their deep spiritual devotion to Russia and the Orthodox faith saved them.I leave you with this painting by Grand Duchess Olga that reflects her nostalgia for Russia.Tamara MitrofanovaFootnotes Émigré enterprise: How Russian aristocrats became fashion pioneers
How is Israel beneficial to American interests abroad?
Even before 9/11 ,there has been a tiff going on between USA and Arab countries bcoz of rise in petroleum crude prices cartelisation.As Crude has been the lifeline of all the countries for last several decades and even today bciz of energy securuty requirements.USA has not been in very good terms with other oil suppliers like USSR ,Venezuela etc.So to control these Arab countries,/ Islamic hot heads / extremists, US needed a formidable opponent for them to keep them in check , for which Isreal came in very handy.For Trump to withdraw from Iran deal main instigator was israel.Also Israeli Jews are all.powerful brilliant businessmen .Israel produces disproportionately big number of Noble Laureates, inventors, start ups etc. They are advanced in agriculture, technologies also.

If all Nile crocodiles were replaced with American alligators, would they be able to fill the same niche or would they die out?
The question asks, If all Nile crocodiles were replaced with American alligators, would they be able to fill the same niche or would they die out?It is possible because the American alligator shares both habitat and hunting similarities with both the Nile and American crocodiles.But that may not be as complete a similarity as I imagine because while the American crocs and alligators do coexist, the crocs are significantly fewer in number. Plus the Nile crocodile’s environment is in a river environment whereas the American alligator “favors” swampy and marshy habitat.
