Then the Japanese advanced down the Malay Peninsula on stolen bikes. No-one was to take prisoners; they were to kill the Allied soldiers straight away or burn them with oil. By January 11th, the Japanese had hold of the capital of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur. On the 8th of February, 1942, 23 000 Japanese troops attacked across Johor Strait which took the British by surprise.

Those three were quick to find
Thesis: World War II affected the lives and Civil Liberties of Japanese Americans. The relocation of the Japanese during WWII was a big part of American history because by putting American citizens into internment camps that had not been tried by a court and a jury meant that the government was taking away their civil liberties, which is what the United States was founded upon. It was founded upon the belief that all people whether they were a man or woman were innocent until proven guilty. The Japanese were put into the internment camps not because they were proved guilty but because of their race and the possibility that they could be part of the Tokyo Rose/ Tokio Rose. Tokio Rose was a name given by the Allied forces to about a dozen female broadcasters of Japanese Propaganda.
The women in Eyam experiencing the plague in 1666 use their abilities to benefit the health of the community, and understand to keep the townspeople “above the ground” they must take action, while the men take a back seat through the plague and hope for the best. Instances like these are demonstrated a number of times through the two central women in the novel, Elinor and Anna, such as when they use herbal medicine resources in attempt to fight the effects of the plague to help the townspeople. Although at first Anna only came to the Gowdies for herself, “I came here not seeking herbs to help others. Only myself”, her admiration for Elinor and her willingness to learn causes her to cascade into the depths of finding a way to help others. Both Elinor and Annas ingenuity of thinking about helping the whole community to become stronger only reassures the audience of their dependability and kindness in such times when others need help.

“Tess’s first thought was to put the still-living birds out of their torture, and to this end with her own hands she broke the necks for as many as she could find,” (297). Tess is similar to the birds in that she is feeling pain also. Her loss of Angel is like the slow death of the birds, she wants someone to end it. Her killing of these birds also foreshadows the Tess’ future as just like the birds her neck is snapped when she hangs for the crime of killing Alec d’Urberville. Despite her trying to be as Christian as possible, Tess finds herself connected to
The discovery of the midget submarine confirms the account radioed to naval command at Pearl Harbor at 6:45 a.m. on Dec. 7, 1941. A Japanese submarine was shot through the conning tower and then depth charged trying to enter Pearl Harbor behind the USS Antares.

The Ward's crew were Naval reservists from St. Paul, Minnesota. Unfortunately, Naval command in Pearl Harbor ignored the Ward's report and the aerial attack began at 8 am.
Maintaining Participation and Wellbeing in Children, Adults and Older People Evaluation of the Unique Contribution of Occupational Therapy to Maintaining Participation and Wellbeing of Female Adult Refugees using an Arts Intervention Refuge means place of safety (dictionary.com, 2012) which is what people fleeing from conflict and persecution expect to find in a new country, although too often they can be met with hostility and prejudice. A refugee is someone who can no longer live in their own country as a result of violence or severe economic factors threatening their life (migrantwatchuk.org.uk, 2012). They have been granted asylum which distinguishes them from asylum seekers yet they still face many barriers to integration into their new communities and they are displaced geographically, economically, socially and occupationally. An occupational therapist can use their therapeutic skills to develop interventions to achieve occupational justice by engaging the group in creative activities. An arts programme will do this by helping female refugees to re-define their identities, roles and routines, allowing expression of creativity and promote social inclusion and integration.
