Happy Independence Day!

From Taiwan to Australia - late 2007 to 2008 - counting down for the winter and following summer term x-cultural communication lectures T-22 to T-1. Some of the TV channels published into YouTube channels two years ago. Some of the YouTube channels have been disabled since then. Much of the material on still existing channels has disappeared. In any case, most of the videos are history. My favorite reason is: This video contains content which has been blocked in your country on copyright grounds. Bye-bye, world. Welcome, one-horse-town!

Trying to revive a series: Building x-cultural awareness: Watch TV, identify cultural stereotypes, accept differences, and develop a foundation to overcome them.

An early history of the USA, citing Wikipedia on July 3, 2010: "The term colonial history of the United States refers to the history from the start of European settlement to the time of independence from Europe, and especially to the history of the thirteen colonies of Britain which declared themselves independent in 1776.

Starting in the late 16th century, England, Scotland, France, Sweden, Spain and the Netherlands began to colonize eastern North America. Many early attempts—notably the English Lost Colony of Roanoke—ended in failure, but several successful colonies were established. European settlers came from a variety of social and religious groups. No aristocrats settled permanently, but many adventurers, soldiers, farmers, and tradesmen arrived. The Dutch of New Netherland, the Swedes and Finns of New Sweden, the English, Irish and German Quakers of Pennsylvania, the English Puritans of New England, the English settlers of Jamestown, and the "worthy poor" of Georgia, among others—each group came to the new continent and built colonies with their distinctive social, religious, political and economic styles.

Historians typically recognize four distinct regions in the lands that later became the Eastern United States. From north to south, they are: New England, the Middle Colonies, the Chesapeake Bay Colonies (Upper South) and the Lower South. Some historians add a fifth region, the frontier, which was never separately organized. Other colonies that contributed land to the future United States include New France, Quebec (Louisiana), New Spain, and Russian Alaska."
