World War 3 Predictions Is This The End For America

What are the top World War 3 predictions andscenarios in today's world that is facing economic collapse in many countries, the threatof ISIS, a rogue anticonstitutionalist American President in Barack Hussein Obama and VladimirPutin wanting to bring back the old Mother Russiaé Why don't we have an honest discussionabout that. Can weé The many conflicts in the world today in Ukraine,the Middle East including Israel, Africa and other parts of the globe, coupled with racialtension and a financial outlook that points to economic collapse of many nations includingGreece, Russia and the United States coming soon sets a world war 3 scenario that lookseerily similar to what happened leading up

to World War 1. With the world in chaos at the beginning of1914, on June 28 of that same year, a Serbian nationalist kills both AustroHungarian ArchdukeFranz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie and one month later AustriaHungary declares war onSerbia and for the rest of 1914 the world spirals out of control with one country afteranother declaring war on either Germany or AustriaHungary. So, what could be the catalyst or kindlingthat brings about such a worldwide conflict and plunges the world into total waré Leadingup to WW I it was an assassination that lead

to that eventual massive conflict. Could thesame thing happen todayé And what role will a weakened America play at the hands of anineffective and weak leader that has an abysmal foreign policy and zero military experienceéAnd honestly, who's side is President Obama really oné What if Russian President Vladimir Putin wereto have the Ukrainian president knocked off like he may have had a hand in oppositionleader Boris Nemtsov's demiseé Would the world look at that and say enough is enough andtake sidesé Or what could happen if militant terroristssuch as ISIS acquire a nuclear weaponé But

who is ISIS really. Did we not create themby meddling in the Middle East. And what is the point of having a global World War 3é What does a World War doé In its most basicform, it changes the world. What did World War 1 doé In was the end of the age of empires.It was the end of the AustroHungarian empire and more importantly it was the end of theOttoman Empire which had lasted for more than 6 centuries. World War 2 was to bring Germany to powerto control all of Europe and Japan to control the Pacific region. Fortunately, both of thoseobjectives failed, but it still changed Europe,

ushering in the European Union and guess whocontrols that, Germany. And what would a World War 3 doé It wouldfinally usher in a global government under the pretense that we can't go on fightingwars like this any longer, that is after it kills probably half the world's population.It would be dark, it would be nuclear and it would be devastating. And it's all aboutpower. When the world is in turmoil as it is now,it turned to world war twice in the past. Will it completely destroy the planeté Probablynot. Will it usher in global government. Probably. Will you be able to do anything about itéProbably not. You may however be able to stock

up on some foodstuffs if you are in a remotepart of your own country where invading armies are not all that concerned about controlling,but eventually, there will be almost nothing you can do. That is one of the predictions of World War3.

How Much are Olympic Gold Medals Worth

How Much are Olympic Gold medals Worthé As far as the value of the raw materials inthem, this varies from Olympiad to Olympiad. For the recent 2012 Olympics in London, themedals were the largest of any in Summer Olympic history up to that point, weighing in at 400gfor the gold medal. Of this 400g, '4g was sterling silver (364.45gsilver 29.55g copper) with 6g of 24 karat gold plating. At the price of gold and silver when thesemedals were won by various Olympians, this means a gold medal in the London Olympicswas worth about $624, with $304 of the value

coming from the gold plating and about $320coming from the sterling silver. Since then, the price of gold has droppedabout 18% and the price of silver has dropped about '%.

For the current 2016 Rio Olympics, the goldmedals are oneupping the London Games, weighing in at a a half a kilogram, with about 462gof it silver, 6g gold, and the rest copper. So by current gold and silver prices as ofJuly 13, 2016, these medals are worth about $561 total, with approximately $301 of thevalue from silver and $260 from gold. So,

despite being 15 more massive than the LondonGames Olympics medals, and having the same amount of gold and much more silver, due tothe significant drop in gold and silver prices since 2012, the Rio gold medals are worthless at their awarding than the London Games medals were worth when they were awarded. Of course, athletes can often get much morethan this selling the medals on the open market, particularly for momentous medals, like the“Miracle on Ice� 1980 men's U.S. hockey team gold medal. Mark Wells, a member of thatteam, auctioned his medal off in 2012 and received $310,700 for it, which he neededto help pay for medical treatment.

Most auctioned medals don't go for nearlythis much, though. For instance, Anthony Ervin's 50 meter freestyle gold medal won in 2000,even with all proceeds going to the victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami, only sold for$17,100. John Konrads' 1500 meter freestyle gold medal won in 1960 only sold for $11,250in 2011. This is a great return in terms of what the raw value of the materials are worth,but certainly nowhere close to Mark Wells' medal. Gold medals in the Olympics weren't alwaysmade mostly of silver. Before the 1912 Olympics, they were made of solid gold. However, theytended to be much smaller than modern medals.

For instance, the 1900 Paris gold medals wereonly 3.2 mm thick, with a 59 mm diameter, weighing just 53g. For perspective, the London2012 medals were 7 mm thick, with a diameter of 85 mm and, as mentioned, weighed 400g.The 1900 Paris gold medals at today's value of gold are worth about $2300. For the 1912games in Stockholm, the last year the gold medals were made of solid gold, the valueof the gold medals at current prices of gold would be around $870. If the current 2016 Olympic gold medals weremade out of solid gold, they'd be worth about $21,625 each. This may seem feasible,considering how much money the Olympics brings
