A United Nations report on poverty in the United Kingdom has painted a damming picture of a nation where "compassion" for the poorest has been replaced with a "mean-spirited" approach reminiscent of the 19th century workhouses made infamous by Charles Dickens.

History of the United States

The history of the United States began with the settlement of Indigenous people before 10,000 BC. Numerous cultures formed. The arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492 started the European colonization of the Americas. Most colonies formed after 1600. By the 1770s, thirteen British colonies contained 2.5 million people along the Atlantic coast east of the Appalachian Mountains. After defeating France, the British government imposed a series of new taxes after 1765, rejecting the colonists' argument that new taxes needed their approval (see Stamp Act 1765). Tax resistance, especially the Boston Tea Party (1773), led to punitive laws by Parliament designed to end self-government in Massachusetts.

Armed conflict began in 1775. In 1776, the Second Continental Congress declared a new, independent nation: the United States of America. Led by General George Washington, it won the Revolutionary War with large support from France. The peace treaty of 1783 gave the new nation the land east of the Mississippi River (except Canada and Florida). The Articles of Confederation established a central government, but it was ineffectual at providing stability, as it could not collect taxes and had no executive officer. A convention in 1787 wrote a new Constitution that was adopted in 1789. In 1791, a Bill of Rights was added to guarantee inalienable rights. With Washington as the first president and Alexander Hamilton his chief adviser, a strong central government was created. Purchase of the Louisiana Territory from France in 1803 doubled the size of the United States. A second and final war with Britain was fought in 1812, which solidified national pride.

Encouraged by the notion of manifest destiny, U.S. territory expanded all the way to the Pacific coast. While the United States was large in terms of area, its population in 1790 was only 4 million. However this grew rapidly, reaching 7.2 million in 1810, 32 million in 1860, 76 million in 1900, 132 million in 1940, and 321 million in 2015. Economic growth in terms of overall GDP was even greater. However compared to European powers, the nation's military strength was relatively limited in peacetime before 1940. The expansion was driven by a quest for inexpensive land for yeoman farmers and slave owners. The expansion of slavery was increasingly controversial and fueled political and constitutional battles, which were resolved by compromises. Slavery was abolished in all states north of the Mason–Dixon line by 1804, but the South continued to profit off of the institution, mostly from production of cotton. Republican Abraham Lincoln was elected in 1860 on a platform of halting the expansion of slavery.

Seven Southern slave states rebelled and created the foundation of the Confederacy. Its attack of Fort Sumter against the Union forces started the Civil War (1861–1865). Confederate defeat led to the impoverishment of the South and the abolition of slavery. In the Reconstruction Era (1863–1877), legal and voting rights were extended to freed slaves. The national government emerged much stronger, and because of the Fourteenth Amendment in 1868, it gained the explicit duty to protect individual rights. However, when white Democrats regained their power in the South in 1877, often by paramilitary suppression of voting, they passed Jim Crow laws to maintain white supremacy, and new disfranchising constitutions that prevented most African Americans and many poor whites from voting. This continued until gains of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s and passage of federal legislation to enforce constitutional rights were made.

The United States became the world's leading industrial power at the turn of the 20th century due to an outburst of entrepreneurship in the Northeast and Midwest and the arrival of millions of immigrant workers and farmers from Europe. The national railroad network was completed and large-scale mining and factories industrialized the Northeast and Midwest. Mass dissatisfaction with corruption, inefficiency and traditional politics stimulated the Progressive movement, from the 1890s to 1920s, which led to many reforms including the 16th to 19th constitutional amendments, which brought the federal income tax, direct election of Senators, prohibition, and women's suffrage. Initially neutral during World War I, the United States declared war on Germany in 1917 and funded the Allied victory the following year.

After a prosperous decade in the 1920s, the Wall Street Crash of 1929 marked the onset of the decade-long worldwide Great Depression. Democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt ended the Republican dominance of the White House and implemented his New Deal programs, which included relief for the unemployed, support for farmers, Social Security and a minimum wage. The New Deal defined modern American liberalism. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, the United States entered World War II and financed the Allied war effort and helped defeat Nazi Germany in the European theater. Its involvement culminated in using newly invented nuclear weapons on two Japanese cities to defeat Imperial Japan in the Pacific theater.

The United States and the Soviet Union emerged as rival superpowers in the aftermath of World War II. During the Cold War, the two countries confronted each other indirectly in the arms race, the Space Race, proxy wars, and propaganda campaigns. The purpose of this was to stop the spread of communism. In the 1960s, in large part due to the strength of the Civil Rights Movement, another wave of social reforms was enacted by enforcing the constitutional rights of voting and freedom of movement to African-Americans and other racial minorities. The Cold War ended when the Soviet Union was officially dissolved in 1991, leaving the United States as the world's only superpower.

After the Cold War, the United States began focusing on modern conflicts in the Middle East and nuclear programs in North Korea. The beginning of the 21st century saw the September 11 attacks by Al-Qaeda in 2001, which was later followed by the U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2008, the United States had its worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, which was followed by slower-than-usual rates of economic growth during the 2010s.

TODAY IS WORLD ORAL HEALTH DAY! As is the custom: World Oral Health Day (WOHD) is celebrated every year on 20th March. It is the largest global awareness campaign on oral health. It was launched by FDI World Dental Federation in 2007 and is the culmination of a year-long activities dedicated to raising global awareness on the prevention and control of oral disease. Since 2013, World Oral Health Day is observed annually and there have been a specific theme yearly: 2013: Healthy Teeth for Healthy Life 2014: Brush for a Healthy Mouth 2015: Smile for Life 2016: It All Starts Here. Healthy Mouth Healthy Body 2017: Live Mouth Smart 2018: Say Ahh: Think Mouth, Think Health Combined with different sub-themes each year, the 2018 WOHD campaign: 'Say Ahh: Think Mouth, Think Health' encourages people to make the connection between oral health and their general health and well-being. This year's campaign aims to educate people that keeping a healthy mouth, is crucial to keeping it functioning correctly and for maintaining overall health and quality of life. It highlights associations between certain oral diseases and noncommunicable diseases (such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease and some cancers), raises awareness of common risk factors, and promotes good oral hygiene habits. Oral health is fundamental to general health and well-being at every stage of life. A healthy mouth enables nutrition of the physical body and also enhances social interaction and promotes self-esteem and feelings of well-being. The mouth serves as a “gateway” to the rest of the body, providing signals of general health disorders. For example, mouth lesions may be the first signs of HIV infection, bone loss in the lower jaw can be an early indicator of skeletal osteoporosis, and changes in tooth appearance can indicate anorexia. Oral conditions have an impact on overall health and disease. Bacteria from the mouth can cause infection in other parts of the body when the immune system has been compromised by disease. Systemic conditions and their treatment are also known to impact on oral health (e.g reduced saliva flow, altered balance of oral microorganisms). A healthy mouth allows you to speak (a custodian of words), smile, taste, chew, swallow and convey a range of emotions with confidence and without pain, discomfort and disease – oral health by definition therefore, is the health of the mouth. “Say Ahh is a phrase that is commonly used by dentists, doctors and health workers during check-ups. It invites people to open their mouth for examination and brings to life the notion of the mouth serving as a mirror to the body and reflecting overall health.” The more informed an individual is about the impact of oral health on his general health, the more likely he will be to engage in preventive oral care routines. Despite being highly preventable, oral disease is one of the most widespread chronic diseases confronting humanity. Regular dental check-ups and adopting good oral hygiene will help to protect your mouth and body. Evidence is solid that when you fail to be true to your ORAL HEALTH, it may not fail to be false to you. As the World celebrates Oral Health Day today, the take home message is always be TRUE TO YOUR ORAL HEALTH OR IT WILL BE FALSE TO YOU. #SayAhh: Think Mouth Think Health #HappyWorldOralHealthDay
