Question: Please don't say anything on the cold war or any war because i don't understand any of the articles on war because they are so confusing. they absolutely must be in the 80s! the beginning of alcohol and drug education, the first mac computer, cell phones, and a lot of other things simply became popular in the 80s. I'd really like to know some cool new inventions from the 80s that were actually invented in the 80s.

Rimon Originally Answered: Top ten major important events in world history?
1400s–1500s China grows under Ming Dynasty, with capital at Beijing. Agriculture, navigation, Confucianism, and art thrive. Chinese trading ships export tea, silk, and porcelain to India, Africa, and Europe, with Guangzhou as a major trading post. 1500s–1600s European countries establish the slave trade in west Africa to obtain workers for the sugar and tobacco plantations in South America and the Caribbean, and the cotton plantations in the southern U.S. 1348-1665 The Bubonic plague or "Black Death " threatens all of Europe. Over 25 million Europeans died in periodic outbreaks. This led to the church holding vast amounts of property due to the theocratic form of government prevalent at the time. There was a general disenchantment with the church due to the failure of the clergy to stop the spread and the devastation brought about by the plague. The wealth of the church provided the motivation for the ruling class to exploit the opportunity to enrich themselves by supporting the religious rebellion leaders and movements. 1618-1648 The period of the Thirty-Year's War. Many German areas were devastated and the population dropped from 15 million to 10 million. The Peace of Westphalia granted the Calvinists equal rights and gave subordinate German rulers more independence. Substantial migration occurred, especially the Swiss to the Palatinate to repopulate the more ravaged areas. Restrictive emigration laws made it difficult and expensive to leave certain areas such as Wurttemberg. 1600s–1700s Scientific Revolution begins; scientific method is developed. Galileo proves solar-centred universe; Isaac Newton studies gravity; William Harvey studies human circulation; microscope is invented. 1717 Moghul Empire in India allows the British East India Company to trade in India without paying duties. Company increases its power and control until it virtually rules India by 1757. c. 1760 James Watt (England) works on perfecting the steam engine. Industrial Revolution begins in England. The country rapidly changes from mostly agricultural to mostly manufacturing. 1789 French Revolution begins (“Liberty, Equality, Fraternity”), bringing absolute monarchy, feudalism, and the power of the aristocracy to an end in France. Ruling monarchs and many aristocrats are guillotined. then the first and the second world war,the american civil war , Russian cold war i hope you can expand them if you want add pictures to your presentation, in the slideshow , make different entries and exits of each , add some music and your ppt would be great!

They tore down the Berlin wall in 1989, which had previously been used to help keep people from leaving East Germany via Berlin. Of course, that is one of the events at the beginning of the end of the cold war. And on the subject of nuclear things, there was the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. Ps. Formal alcohol and drug education in schools most certainly did not begin in the '80s. It was being done at least as early as the 1880s.

1986 sharemarket crash - this was a major thing, akin to the "recession" we have at the moment. The NASA Space Shuttle, first appeared in the early 80s and seemed to be the next leap forward into space as it could fly back to earth and land unlike the earlier rockets that had to ditch in the sea to get back. VHS defeated Beta to be the major video tape system.
