Canada

Historical

The first settlers in Canada are considered to be Indians (in the southern part) and Eskimos (in the northern part), crossing the Bering Strait, arriving in North America. In the sixteenth century, Jacques Cartier discovered the territory of Canada. Cartier entered Saint-Laurent Bay between 1534 and 1536, traveled up to present-day Montreal and Québec, and found Canada and included it in France. Since there was no mine in the country at that time, the colonization movement was left unfinished and the Canadian side was frequented only by Morino hunters and fur traders. But the main purpose of the French rulers was to develop hunting, forest and mining operations, to supply the raw materials that France needed, and to spread Christianity through missionaries.

In 1629, the British seized Canada in 1632 France took back. Each year, migrants and mercenaries volunteered to support the settlement in the country.

In the eighteenth century, Canada was left to the United Kingdom by a treaty with England. The British regime was influential in the country between the years 1763-1837 with the British immigrants moving rapidly to Canada.

After the Treaty of Versailles, which ratified the US’s independence in 1783, Canada was flooded with supporters of England. In 1791, England divided Saint Laurent’s lands into two, turning the southeastern sides into French, and the northwest sides into the English state. In both states, the parliamentary regime was established, but the British in general held management in trade.

With the uprising in Upper Canada and Lower Canada in 1837, Europeans allowed the establishment of a government that gave them more say in the administration of the country. In 1867, the British treaty of North America combined Ontario, Québer, Nauvelle-Ecorse and Nouveau-Brunswich.

England’s participation in the First World War between 1914-1918, led to the war in Canada. Canada, a British colony, provided equipment and supplies to the Entente States.

In 1926, at the imperial conference in London, Britain and its dominions were given the status equality. With the 1931 West Minster Statute, Kanda became an independent state. When World War II broke out in 1939, Canada declared war against Germany and emerged strengthened by this war. A treaty made at the beginning of 1989 raised customs between the US and Canada.

Physical Structure

Almost half of Canada consists of the Canadian Shield called the Laurentian plateau. This region of the continent is composed of very old and hard rocks covering an area of ??4,568,889 square kilometers. This region spreads around the Hudson Bay as a shield and extends from the coast of the Labrador and runs along the St.Lawrence River and the Huron and Superior Lakes. After entering the US territory, it passes between the lakes in the northwest and ends at the Arctic Ocean near the mouth of the Mackenzie River. This region is likened to a plate because its edges are higher than the Hudson Bay which forms the middle part. In the south-east, the Kalkan region is abruptly elevated along the St.Lawrence River and Bay from the view of the plain.

St.Lawrence District: Located in the southeast of Kalkan, this region includes southern Ontario in the form of a peninsula and a slightly rippling area to the southwest of the city of Québec. In the Huron Lake, from the Bruce peninsula to the southeast extension, the region is covered with a hard limestone layer. The Niyagara Waterfall is famous for its cleavage of the layer by the Niyagara River. Located between Kalkan and Kanda Appalachies, the St.Lawrence Plains are covered with sea in prehistoric times. Today they look like a sedimentary plain. However, this is not the case of Montreregian Hills, which are eight in number, rising to the east of Montreal. The plains are separated from the Ontario peninsula by an extension to the southeast of Kalkan. This extension is cut by the St.Lawrence River, near the mouth of Lake Ontario.

The Appalachia region: part of the Appalachian mountain system, which includes the eastern border of Québec, the New Foundland island and the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. In the north between the Canadian Shield and the hard rocky terrain in Nova Scotia, the Maritime provinces form a basin.

Inner plains: The triangular section on the west of the Canadian Shield is an extension of the large plains in the US. These inner plains have passed through different geological stages. The first elevation into the plain is the Manitoba height of 490 m (Duch, Riding and Porcupine Mountains) and the second elevation is the Missouri Coteau at 910 m in Saskat Chewan. The accumulation of old ice lakes has led to the loss of the plains. The plains in Saskatchewon and Albetro were carved deeply by the rivers. In the southern part of the region there is the famous Prairie region.

Rivers and lakes: All the rivers born in Canada pour their waters into the sea. Most of these rivers are used both as transportation and energy sources. The most important rivers of the country are the rivers that originate from the east of the rocky mountains, pouring into the Arctic Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Hudson. From these rivers, the length of the Mackenzian is 3700 km and is poured into the Arctic Ocean. Since this river is frozen in the eight months of the year, transportation is not available. Although the Saint Laurent River is shorter, it is the most important transportation way of the country. It emerges from Lake Ontario, causing a number of lakes to emerge and is poured into the Atlantic Ocean. The length of the estuary which takes place in the sea reaches 40 km.

When it comes to lakes, the size of large and small lakes in the Canadian territory is 250 thousand. The largest of these are Lake Ayı 31.080 km2, Büyük Esir Gölü 28.919 km2, Lake Winnipeg is 24.530 km2. The Saing Laurent lakes series is located between the US and Canada.

Climate

There are great differences in climate between regions. In the northern regions, winters are long and cold, and in the west and southeast, they are softer. The average temperature in July is 16 ° C. The most important factors affecting the climate are the distance and proximity to the sea and the North Pole. In the North Pole belt, for example in Euroka, the average winter temperature is -37 ° C. In summer, however, it increases to + 6 ° C. Rain snow can also vary depending on the distance from the sea.

Natural Resources

Vegetation and animals: Canada’s land and vegetation are highly dependent on the climate. The forest belt extends from the Mackenzie River to the southern shores of Hudson Bay and the Ungaua peninsula. Only tundralar is found on the infertile soils of the northern part of this belt.

It is possible to find all kinds of wild animals and birds in these forests. Polar bears and musk cows live in the poles. Seals have seals, walruses and whales. Further south, deer, black and grizzly bears, wolves, foxes, beavers and other fur animals are seen.

Mines: Canada has just started to use its vast underground wealth. The most important mines are oil. The other minerals extracted are nickel, iron, copper, zinc, gold, lead and uranium. Canada has long been the world’s largest nickel-producing country.

Population and Social Life

Canada has a population of over 27 million people. The regions with the highest population density are the sea states in the east. Ontario and Québec; then the more western regions (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta) and the Gregorian colony. The population in the north is rare.

Canada is a highly urbanized country, with over two-thirds of the population living in cities. The majority of the population constitutes two major ethnic groups: British-born Canadians, British, Irish, and Scottish (43%) and French-born Canadians (31%). The other part of the population comes from Europe with recent migrations: Germans, Ukrainians, Italians, Hungarians, etc. Indians and Eskimos constitute only 1% of the whole population. The proportion of urban people who accept English as their mother tongue is greater than the proportion of British citizens. According to the statistics, most of the Canadians who speak bilingual live in the regions where the population is of French origin.

Political Life

Canada is governed by the Republic. Its Constitution was adopted in 1867. Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, is also the queen of Canada. There is a governor general appointed by him in Ottawa. The Parliament is composed of the Senate and the House of Commons. The Senate is composed of 102 senators elected by the Prime Minister’s recommendation. The House of Commons consists of 264 deputies, elected for a period of five years, according to the rate of population from each state. Every Canadian citizen has the right to vote in the constituency from the age of 18 onwards.

Canada is a federation of 10 states and two territorial territories.

Economy

Canada has extremely rich natural resources. The fertile clumps spread over large areas, the forest belts surrounding the country, the rich fishing areas and the mineral deposits are very diverse. These sources provide the necessary raw material to the industry.

Agriculture: 7,8% of the land is suitable for agriculture and 10% of the workforce is employed in this area. All kinds of crops from wheat to sugar cane, from tobacco to vegetables and fruits are grown in the country.

Canada is one of the most wheat-growing countries. Wheat exports second place in the world after the United States. Other cultivated products include barley, oats, rye. Canada is among the most apple growing countries. Besides the apple, fruits such as pears and peaches are of great importance.

Animal husbandry: Animal husbandry is an important source of income due to the large number of pastures and pastures in Canada. Exports milk and meat products. The most grown animal is cattle. The number of small ruminants and horses is decreasing.

Since fur culture is developed in the country, close to 2000 farms such as mink, fox, otter and shinny are grown.

Forestry: Forests covering approximately 48% of the country’s land are of great importance in the forest industry. However, although only 1% of the workforce is employed, the forest industry has a great contribution to exports. The majority of the products obtained in Québec, where most of the timber resources are found, are used for making pulp. It is made of pine trees that grow in British Columbia, and it is made of pine wood. More than 10 million tonnes of newspaper paper is produced per year in Canada. This is half of world production. Most of this is exported to the US.

Fishing: Fishing is very developed due to the fact that Canada is surrounded by the great oceans to the west and east and there are large lakes in the country. Among fish exporting countries, it ranks third after Japan and Norway. Large, modern fishing fleet, fish, fish, fish, herbs and sardines.

Industry: Canada has been one of the world’s largest industrial forces with factors such as population growth, the abundance of natural resources, the availability of energy resources and the flow of foreign capital to the country.

 

Costa Rica

Historical

When Christopher Columbus came out to a small island near the shores of the Caribbean on September 18, 1502, he named it bir Costa Rica ında which means çıktı Rich Coast Krist because of the gold deposits here.

In this area, the northwest-southeastern elevation belt with Cordillera de Guanacaste to the north and Cordillera de Talamana to the south; to the west of the ridge belt, between the Nicaya and Osa peninsula, the coast of the Great Ocean.

Elevations start at the west of Lake Nicaragua. Irazu 3432 m and Turrilaba 3328 m form the highest volcanoes in the country. Talamanca Mountain range of 2740 m high hills are found.

The eastern coasts of the country are indentations and protrusions, while the west coasts are numerous. Coco Island, 480 km away from the west coast, belongs to Costa Rica. The hillsides that descend from the mountainous interior to the coastal plains are quite steep.

Climate

In the coastal plains where the East Alize winds dominate, the humid equatorial climate prevails, while the central parts are warm and the climates dominate in high places. But the cold is not violent. The average temperature in the coast is between 25 and 32 ° C, in the middle between 21 and 27 ° C is between. In high regions it does not exceed 10 ° C. No snow in the country. The average annual rainfall ranges between 3100 and 6350 mm.

Natural Resources

Vegetation and animals: Marshes and forests occupy about a third of the country. North Caribbean coasts and the Pacific Ocean coasts are covered with tropical forests. Oak and pine trees are found in the forests. In the regions above the altitude of 2400 m, forests sparse and replaced with grasslands and pastures. A wooded area covers the eastern parts of the Nicoya peninsula.

The most common wild animals in the country include tapir, arrow hedgehog and crocodile.

Cuba

History

Cuban natives; The first inhabitants of Cuba were Guanahatabey and Kiboni Indians who came to the island from South America. Taynolar (Antil Aravakları) settled in the island later became agriculturalists and a peaceful people who reached a certain level in making pots and tools. It was about 80-100 thousand.

The first permanent settlement in Cuba, where Christopher Columbus first explored (October 1492) in his first voyage (October 1492), was established in 1511. The oppression and exploitation of colonists, epidemics, hunger and immigration. century, the peace and order provided in the region along with the colony’s population has reached 50 thousand.At the beginning of the regular voyages from Spain increased the commercial and strategic importance of Havana. In order to close the labor shortage that emerged with the end of the slave trade in 1865, the Mexican Indians and the Chinese began to be brought to the island as a contracted laborer.

Since the end of the 19th century, Spain’s inability to provide the necessary labor, capital, machinery, technical skills, and markets for sugar production and exports led to a gradual weakening of its political and economic ties with Cuba. started to gain power in production and trade. The fact that the Spaniards did not compromise the demand for autonomy on the island and further increased the taxes caused the Ten Years War to start (1868 – 1878). In 1895, when the Cuban poet and journalist Jose Marti, in exile, brought together political organizations in exile, a war of independence, based on the guerrilla tactics, began. The United States of America, which is active in its economy, led to the war against Spain by using the sinking of the ship Maine ship anchored in Havana harbor.

The independence of Cuba, envisaged in the framework of the Paris Treaty signed after the end of the Spanish – American War (1898), entered into force on January 1, 1899 under the invasion of the United States. After receiving the right to have a say in Cuba’s internal and external relations and to establish a naval base at Guantanamo Bay, he withdrew his troops from the island. It has opened the way for a form of government based on social injustice. In particular, the actions of the Cuban clans of African descent for political rights and better job opportunities have been hardly suppressed. In 1933, Fulgencio Batista, who had overthrown Gerardo Machado with the support of the United States in 1933, left his mark on the Cuban leadership for many years as the most famous dictator. In addition, the rise in the unemployment rate, the fact that the vast majority of the population remained in poverty, and the economy was increasingly exogenous led to an effective opposition to the Batista administration.

Fidel Castro, who led one of the groups targeting the dictatorship in the 1950s, was imprisoned for a period due to a failed raid on the Moncada Barracks (1953). Castro in Mexico in 1955 after the 26th July Movement launched in Argentina, the organization, including the revolutionary revolutionary Che Guevara in December 1956 in Cuba, the guerrilla movement launched in Cuba in time, taking support from other groups Batista’ya troops are important After the dictator Fulgencio Batista left Cuba on January 1, 1959, a new leadership began in Havana with a force of a thousand people under Castro. (Cuban Revolution)
Fidel Castro, who gained the support of a large part of the government as a result of deep-rooted land reform, gained weight with the alliance he established with the Cuban Socialist People’s Party. Decapitation accelerated Castro’s close relationship with the USSR and turned towards a socialist line. In the 1960s, the increasing military spending due to the pressure of the United States led to shock in the economy. At the same time, Cuba was pushed to diplomatic loneliness because of its support for the revolutionary movements in Latin America. I.

In the 1970s, the party and the state were stabilized in the economy with the improvement in the economy. In the meantime, Castro’s leadership in the administration was strengthened. sending unresponsive to the invasion of Afghanistan by the USSR, an unconnected country, caused some reactions in the Third World. The fact that the United States of America and the United States of America intervened in Grenada between the 120,000 Cubans who migrated to Cuba after the permission of the Cuban regime to travel to the United States in 1980 made the relations between the two countries even more tense. The wave of change surrounding it did not affect Cuba politically.

Cuba was driven to an economic impasse due to the help of the Soviet aid cut after the Cold War, and turned to tourism investments, and limited private investments were allowed. In this period, a limited improvement was observed in relations with the United States. In July 2006, Fidel Castro temporarily handed over his presidential duties to his brother, Raul Castro.

The total length of the coasts is 3735 km and there is a 29 km land border with the United States naval base at Guantanamo Bay.

Population

Cuba is a very complex population of the past centuries, different ethnic communities settled in the island in the past centuries.In the pre-colombian period between 80-100 thousand island natives, today, only a few families living on the east end of the island remains. European and African people, 37%, whites, 11% of blacks and 1% of Chinese people.

Economy

Cuban economy is largely a state-controlled planned economy based on socialist principles. Although private sector investments have increased in the recent years, most of the production vehicles are operated by the state. In 1992, 80% of foreign trade was realized and the subsidies for agricultural production were subsidized. The US embargo was softened after the depressive period. However, after Soviet aid disappeared and trade relations deteriorated, the economy had deteriorated for a while, and then it moved from agriculture to industry. In the agricultural sector, where 21% of the workforce is employed, sugarcane, tobacco, citrus, coffee and rice are important production and export items.
