Latin American Revolutions

Latin American Revolutions: Crash Course World History #31


Published on Aug 23, 2012
In which John Green talks about the many revolutions of Latin America in the 19th century. At the beginning of the 1800s, Latin America was firmly under the control of Spain and Portugal. The revolutionary zeal that had recently created the United States and had taken off Louis XVI's head in France arrived in South America, and a racially diverse group of people who felt more South American than European took over. John covers the soft revolution of Brazil, in which Prince Pedro boldly seized power from his father, but promised to give it back if King João ever returned to Brazil. He also covers the decidedly more violent revolutions in Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina. Watch the video to see Simón Bolívar's dream of a United South America crushed, even as he manages to liberate a bunch of countries and get two currencies and about a thousand schools and parks named after him.

George H.W. Bush gets hospital visit from son: 'Big morale boost'

Posted by Eun Kyung Kim on April 21


Former President George H.W. Bush received a special hospital visit from a familiar face, his son, who gave a promising update about his dad.
"Pleased to report that 41 is joyful, strong, and ready to come home soon," former President George W. Bush wrote in an Instagram post of their bonding session.
Bush's father has been recovering at a hospital since last Friday, when he was admitted for pneumonia.
The elder Bush, 92, also posted the same photo in a tweet that described his joy over the visit.
"Big morale boost from a high level delegation. No father has ever been more blessed, or prouder," he wrote.
Bush's hospitalization is the second time this year that the former president has been hospitalized for pneumonia. A previous battle also required medical attention in January.
But Bush was released in time to be the honorary coin-flipper at this year's Super Bowl in Houston.
Earlier this month, Bush was paid a visit at his Houston home by yet another former president, his White House successor Bill Clinton.

"We caught up about kids, grandkids, old times and new times. And socks," Clinton said in a tweet that included a photo from the visit.
