How did jazz spread from its roots in the 1920s?

I am pleased to share with you this unclassified version of a new National Intelligence Estimate on the reemergence of the threat from infectious diseases worldwide and its implications for the United States.

This report represents an important initiative on the part of the Intelligence Community to consider the national security dimension of a nontraditional threat. It responds to a growing concern by senior US leaders about the implications–in terms of health, economics, and national security–of the growing global infectious disease threat. The dramatic increase in drug-resistant microbes, combined with the lag in development of new antibiotics, the rise of megacities with severe health care deficiencies, environmental degradation, and the growing ease and frequency of cross-border movements of people and produce have greatly facilitated the spread of infectious diseases.

In June 1996, President Clinton issued a Presidential Decision Directive calling for a more focused US policy on infectious diseases. The State Department’s Strategic Plan for International Affairs lists protecting human health and reducing the spread of infectious diseases as US strategic goals, and Secretary Albright in December 1999 announced the second of two major U.S. initiatives to combat HIV/AIDS. The unprecedented UN Security Council session devoted exclusively to the threat to Africa from HIV/AIDS in January 2000 is a measure of the international community’s concern about the infectious disease threat.

As part of this new US Government effort, the National Intelligence Council produced this National Intelligence Estimate. It examines the most lethal diseases globally and by region; develops alternative scenarios about their future course; examines national and international capacities to deal with them; and assesses their national and global social, economic, political, and security impact. It then assesses the infectious disease threat from international sources to the United States; to US military personnel overseas; and to regions in which the United States has or may develop significant equities.

In the 1920s, the anti-defamation league brought national attention to the racism of which group?

[ad_1]

1- The correct answer is B, as one result of the Great Society was that the lives of many underprivileged Americans improved.

The Great Society was a set of US national reform programs announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson for the first time in a speech at Ohio University on May 7, 1964 and more fully illustrated on May 22, 1964 at the University of Michigan. These reform programs were subsequently presented to the Congress of the United States and largely approved during the 1960s, thanks to the consent of its supporters of the Democratic Party.

Two main goals of social reforms were the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. During this period new large spending programs were launched in the fields of education, medical care, urban problems and transport. Johnson’s “Great Society” was linked, in its objectives and policies, to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program.

Some proposals of the Great Society resumed initiatives contained in the New Frontier program, interrupted by the tragic death of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson’s success in promoting and endorsing his reforms depended on his considerable congressional political influence, his persuasion, and the favorable historical circumstances resulting from the 1964 presidential elections, which allowed the Democratic Party to dominate Congress and to elect the House of Representatives with the largest number of exponents of the liberal current since 1938.

The evolution of the Vietnam war and the massive involvement of the American military machine in the conflict, however, partly undermined the success of the “Great Society” program. Growing, huge expenditures for the continuation of the war made more difficult to finance the reform programs. Representatives of the Democratic Party against the war in Vietnam complained that military spending decisively stifled the Great Society program. On the whole, however, despite growing political and economic difficulties, which forced the administration to eliminate or reduce the financing of some projects, President Johnson managed to activate a series of programs of great importance, including Medicare, Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and the federal education funding, which are still active.

2- The correct answer is C, as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was necessary because the previous existing American immigration policies were discriminatory.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the law into effect, saying: “The [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle according to which the valuation and reward of each man should be established on the basis of his merits as a man. It has been anti-American in the highest sense, because it has been unfaithful to the faith that led thousands to these shores, even before we were a country. ”

Where did African Americans in the 1920s face the most discrimination? A. In the Caribbean, where they were recent immigrantsB. In the North, where no Jim Crow laws existeC. In the South, where Jim Crow laws existed D. In western states, where they were recent immigrants

[ad_1]

Answer:

The correct answer is C. In the 1920s, African Americans faced the most discrimination in the South, where Jim Crow laws existed.

Explanation:

Jim Crow laws were state and local laws in southern United States, promulgated by the white state legislatures, that at the time were dominated by the democrats after the period of Reconstruction between 1876 and 1965. These laws advocated racial segregation in all public facilities by de jure mandate under the slogan “separate but equal” and applied to African-Americans and other non-white ethnic groups. In reality, this led to treatment and accommodation being generally inferior to those insured for American whites, systematizing a number of economic, educational and social disadvantages. The de jure segregation was applied mainly in the southern United States. On the other hand, in the north, segregation was generally de facto predominantly towards blacks who lived in urban ghettos.

Which is not an appropriate thesis for an essay comparing two texts about poverty in the United States? Garcia’s reliance on personal stories makes her argument less convincing than Engle’s. Engle combines testimony from social workers with economic statistics that date back to the 1920s to craft a more convincing argument than the one Garcia offers. Garcia and Engle are both experienced scholars who write about poverty and race in the United States. Although both Garcia and Engle agree that hunger in the United States has generally declined since the beginning of the twentieth century, Garcia’s use of personal stories makes for a more interesting and more readable article.

Answer:

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

Which was not an aggressive country in the 1920s and 1930s?

[ad_1]

Answer:

Political: Creation of modern Nation State.

Economic: Spread of capitalism.

Cultural: Consumerist and individualist culture.

Explanation:

Political: Nowadays, there are 194 recognized Nation States in the world. All of these States have been created within the lapse of the last 250 years. But, the modern Nation States, which are political institutions that establish a sovereign political order over a population that lives in a certain territory, are Western inventions. The Nation States were created in Europe, first conceptually during the 16th century, following Machiavelli’s The Prince, and in practice during the 17th century after the Peace of Westphalia. In the last centuries, due to colonialism, this political invention was exported to the rest of the world and today almost every piece of land lies within one of these Nation States.

Economic: Capitalism is an economic order based on the usufruct of private property over capital (resources) as a form of production of goods and services. In a capitalist economy, these goods and services are exchanged by individuals and companies in a market. This system was born during the 18th century in the United Kingdom and later, jointly with industrialism, expanded throughout the world. In the classical global economy shaped by capitalism, Western countries and the developing world have assumed specific roles according to a division of labor, in which the poor non-western developing nations produce the raw materials necessary for the rich industrial countries to produce manufactured goods that later are sold in the global market.

Cultural: Nowadays, most people in the world tend to be educated and to think according to Western values. For example, people that live in countries that were European colonies speak and think in European languages as a first or second language, like English, Spanish, French, or Portuguese. Also, most people in the world increasingly tend to have individualistic behaviors and to be oriented towards a consumerist culture. These conducts were not significant for many cultures in the world in previous centuries, but today is taken as a natural behavior in most countries and it represents a hallmark of American culture. The fact that consumerism and individualism are widespread in the world is due to the influence of American (and Anglo-Saxon) culture in non-western countries, through movies, commercials, music, books, art, and economy.

Why do you think there was so much tension and violence against African Americans in urban areas in the 1910s and 1920s?

[ad_1]

Native Americans were very connected with their environment – they nurtured it and used it as much as they needed, so as to survive. On the other hand, the settlers depleted all resources they could, razed everything to the ground in order to build their homes, as opposed to Native Americans who lived in nature. When it came to social relations, Native Americans were all equal (except for their chieftain). Europeans were also considered to be equal, however – they truly were not. Native Americans had their own beliefs and Europeans tried to force their religion onto Natives. When it came to slavery, there were no slaves with Native Americans – as I said, they were all equal. However, Europeans had no qualms about having slaves.
