Millennials, born in the twenty years leading to 2000, are now young adults. D. Now that they are in the majority, there are many areas where the Millennials may impact our society and priorities
The Spartans played the game known as “Discus” more than any other party of Greek life. Their people were very gruel and focused mainly on the objectives of; competitive sports, violence, and gore. What can be learned from this expert is that the Greek people were competitive and enjoyed violent games and sports for entertainment.
On December 15, 1791, the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution) were ratified by the states.
The Bill of Rights were added to the Constitution to address fears raised by the Anti-Federalists during the ratification of the Constitution that the Constitution did not provide sufficient protection against abuses of power by the federal government.
James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, originally did not think a Bill of Rights was necessary. He thought the Constitution gave no power to the federal government that would allow for a violation of the rights of the people.
Madison later changed his position, persuaded mainly by Thomas Jefferson, and, with the help of others, drafted twenty amendments that were proposed to the first United States Congress in 1789.
Twelve of the proposed amendments were accepted by Congress and were then sent to the states for ratification. Only ten were ratified.
These ten amendments list our basic rights and place limits on the federal government. They include the freedoms of speech and religion, the right to bear arms, the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and an assurance that the powers not delegated to the federal government in the Constitution are reserved to the states and the people. Many of these provisions were based upon similar protections provided by state constitutions that limited the power of state and local government authorities.
Of the remaining amendments that were not ratified in 1791, one was later adopted in 1992 as the twenty-seventh amendment to the Constitution. That amendment prevents changes in the compensation for senators and representatives until after a subsequent election of representatives. The other proposed amendment has never been adopted.
The Bill of Rights illustrates that our Founders understood that for personal freedoms to be broad, the power of the federal government must be limited.
Our nation, however, has moved away from its founding principles, especially during recent decades. Our ever-growing federal government is intervening into more and more aspects of our lives, especially through bureaucratic regulations, and is reducing our personal freedoms in the process.
Government at all levels is doing more and more things that were once left to private individuals and groups, and the federal government is doing more and more things that were once the province of state and local governments, where greater accountability to the public is often possible.
One need only look at the HHS mandate—forcing employers to violate their religious beliefs, under pain of penalty, by paying for and providing abortion pill insurance coverage—to see the harm caused by an overreaching government.
The preservation of our liberties is a daily battle, something our Founders understood. The process of scaling back the size and role of government and returning limits to it is a long one. But, since the federal government is supposed to be our servant and not our master, no one should doubt the importance of this endeavor.
Controlled burns clear brush on the forest floor to make way for saplings to grow. They also assist in replenishing nutrients to the soil. Wildfires can be bad in the sense that they can kill animals if they have not relocated.
If the similarity ratio of two similar solids is 3 : 14, what is the ratio of their corresponding areas? What is the ratio of their corresponding volumes?
d. All the organisms in an ecosystem share distribution patterns.
Native range is what is known in biology as the areas where a species is naturally found, not places were humans introduced them, species have some range only for breeding, for example some frogs only go into the rapids for breeding, and not for living or hunting, and seasonal ranges are areas where the species are found for a part of the year, for example the butterflies that migrate south to Mexico on the coldest months of the year and then come back to the United States for the warm summer, the only one that is not true is that all the organisms in an ecosystem share distribution patterns.
It is important to determine their location before operating on an unfamiliar body of water because they are often difficult to spot, even with local charts. If you don’t know what you’re doing you can get stuck and that can be a huge problem, so it’s necessary to know what you’re doing and where they are located.
Under what condition would it be rational for the trading areas of two branch locations to completely overlap?
A corresponds to L (first letters of each sequence)
B corresponds to M (second letters of each sequence)
C corresponds to P (third letters of each sequence)
In a similar fashion, the segments also correspond to one another.
AB corresponds to LM (first two letters of each sequence)
AC corresponds to LP (first and last letters of each sequence)
BC corresponds to MP (last two letters of each sequence)
AB corresponds to LM. AB is 4 units long. LM is 2 units long. So AB is twice as long as LM. This ratio (of 2:1) will be applied to every paired corresponding value.
Also, the right angle is at angle M for triangle LMP. The right angle will be at angle B for triangle ABC (since B corresponds to M). The answer will have an x coordinate of 7. So the answer is either choice B or choice C.
If we move 4 units down from point B, we land on (7,-10). That isn’t listed as an answer choice. Let’s try moving 4 units up from point B. We land on (7,-2). This is an answer choice
So the final answer is choice C) (7,-2)
The answer is C. In order to carefully control conditions and confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis about the causes of behavior, one must perform an experiment.
Experimental research allows the researcher to control all the variables in order to create the conditions that can confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis. This method aimes to establish a relation of causality between two variables, which means that one variable is generated and determined by the other; this is posible because all of the other variables that can influence it have been controlled.
When a researcher conducts a survey or engages in naturalistic observation, he can’t control the variables, therefore, he can only establish a correlation between two variables, but not of causality.
What is the ratio of the circumference for two circles with areas of 6pi m^2 and 150 pi m^2 A.1:50 B.1:5 C.1:10 D.1.25
Today, about 20 percent of all people in the United States live in _____. cities suburbs hinterlands rural areas
Economic profit is calculated as:
Economic profit = Total Revenues – Total Cost
Total cost both includes explicit and implicit cost. In
this case, the explicit cost is $8,000 while the implicit cost is $64,000.
Explicit cost is a direct payment made to run the business while implicit cost
is the opportunity as accountant that is lost. Therefore,
Economic profit = $150,000 – ($8,000 + $64,000)
Economic profit = $78,000
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.
The correct answer is B. Between 1820 and 1850, most Irish immigrants settled in cities on the East Coast.
After 1840, the majority of Irish Catholic immigrants headed for the big cities or the industrial towns of the East Coast, to cities like Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Baltimore, Detroit or Chicago.
It is estimated that 12% of the total population of the United States of America have Irish ancestry, being Irish Americans the second largest ethnic group of European descent after the German Americans.
They were herders
They were skilled at archery
The other two options explain behavior, which doesn’t answer the question, and success, which is the consequence of being a great warrior, but not the reason for them to be great.
Mongols were herder thus the expertise of riding was significant out on the steppes. Horses were utilized by the Mongols as an incredible instrument that was ver incremental to their prosperity.
A similarly prestigious acknowledgement was attributed to the Mongol people’s aptitude in utilizing the bow. Children would begin to shoot with bows and arrows at the same time that they were learning how to shoot. Many used to practice those skills by hunting little animals.
What program was put together to provide jobs and electricity to rural areas of the united states
1. While the car stops, the person continues moving the way that the car were moving and then hits the obstacle in the car or the person can be thrown out of the vehicle. If the person wears belt, he will stop moving with the vehicle and won’t hit the obstacle.
2. We count approximate kinetic energy using the formula K = v^2. So the vehicle which is moving at 30 mph will have four times less kinetic energy than vehicle which is moving at 60 mph. If they have the same road conditions, the breaking distance will be four times as great for the car moving twice as fast.
3. Kinetic energy depends on object’s mass and velocity and it has direct relationship with the stopping distance. The lesser mass of the vehicle = the lesser kinetic energy and lesser stopping distance. => If both vehicles have the same velocity, then small vehicle has lesser kinetic energy than large vehicle.
4. We know that kinetic energy has this relationship with velocity K = v^2. So the best way to prepare to enter sharp curves in the roadway is to lower the speed. The most appropriate speed is 20-30 mph, but it depends on road conditions and car’s breaks condition.
5. Car crashes can happen with everyone so the best way is to be prepared. First the driver should wear a seatbelt while he’s driving. He should check his tires and breaks condition regularly. And also it’s important to slow down the vehicle while entering sharp curves. Without following these rules, the driver can get catastrophic injuries in a car crash.
Signs, Signals, and Pavement Markings:
1. It doesn’t matter where you go. All you need is to learn highway code. It’s very different to know the meanings of every road sign. Also, it’s necessary to check your car’s conditions and you should take some spare parts for your car in case of accidents. So wherever you go, it’s important to be prepared.
2. You should stop before crossing and take few minutes to make sure there is no train approaching. If there is no train approaching, you can pass a railroad crossing. If you see approaching train, you should wait until it will pass a railroad crossing.
3. You should stop before the lights and wait to check the traffic movement and signs. Make sure that everything is safe and pass the intersection. Don’t move fast to avoid accidents.
4. Flashing yellow light means that it’s not necessary to stop but you should to pay attention on the traffic movement. So it would be better to yield before the lights and make sure if it’s safe to move. After that you can cross the intersection.
5. The line change means that the lane changes and you can’t cross solid lines. Pay more attention on road marking because it shows how you should behave on the road or highway.
6. As you approach the next exit and your passengers need to use the restroom and get some food, you should look for green signs which indicate food and rest stops. You should to slow down if you don’t want to skip the sign.
7. When you take the exit ramp off the expressway and merge onto the next road, you see yellow lines dividing the roadway which indicates that there is oncoming traffic and this is a two-way highway.
The functional unit of the nervous system is the nerve cell or the neuron. The neuron consists of a cell body and the axon. The cell body starts with the dendrites that receive the messages or the impulses from other neurons or from different sense organs or receptors. These impulses are then transmitted through the cell body. The cell body contains a nucleus and different organelles which help the nerve cell to perform its functions. The nerve impulse is then transmitted to the axon.
The axon is an extension from the cell body. There are some cells called Schwan cells that secrete a myelin sheath to insulate the axon from the surrounding medium. The insulated axons have more ability to conduct the impulses than non-insulated axons. The axon ends with the terminal arborizations. The terminal arborizations of a nerve cell connect to the dendrites of the next cell or to the afferent organ. The gaps between the dendrites and the terminal arborizations are called the synapses.
The nerve impulse is an electrochemical phenomenon i.e. an electrical phenomenon with a chemical nature. The membrane of the axon acts as a barrier between an outside positively charged medium and an inside negatively charged medium. This makes a potential difference of -70mV. This state is called the resting potential. When the membrane is subjected to a stimulus, the positive charges enter to inside and the negative charges exit to the outside. The potential difference now becomes +40mV. This state is called the depolarization state. The point of stimulation acts as a new stimulus for the next point and so on. The membrane sooner gains its permeability again and the positive charges return to the outside and the negative charges to inside. This state is called repolarization.
The nerve impulse reaches the synapse. There are some neurotransmitters that are excited by the nerve impulse coming and carry the message across the membrane. Some receptors receive theses neurotransmitters on the dendrites of the next neuron. These receptors act as a stimulus for the new cell.

The correct answer is C) Native Americans fought as enemies against the United States in the Battle of the Thames but as allies in the Battle of New Orleans.
The statement that best shows the difference between the Battle of the Thames and the Battle of New Orleans is “Native Americans fought as enemies against the United States in the Battle of the Thames but as allies in the Battle of New Orleans.”
We are talking about battles occurred during the War of 1812 between the United States and Great Britain in the American territory. The war ended in 1815.
On October 5, 1813, the Battle of Thames was fought. The US army got an important victory over the British troops, securing its Northwest frontier. The Battle of New Orleans was fought on January 8, 1815. The British troops were trying to capture it and control the territory, but they couldn’t. General Andrew Jackson resisted and ed the American troops to an important victory.
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. ”
The correct answer is C)
The list that correctly orders the events in the rise and fall of Apartheid in South Africa is.
1.- The registration population act was signed.
2.- The Soweto Uprising sparked more protest.
3.- Frederik W. de Klerk brought about reforms.
4.- Nelson Mandela became the nation’s president.
The Population Registration Act in South Africa, of 1950, considered South Africans citizens as Whites, Blacks, and Mixed race. The Apartheid was a policy of the government of South Africa that favored racial segregation, benefiting the minority of white people and limiting the rights of Black Africans.
The Apartheid ended when a new Constitution that supported Black people was established in 1993. The elections in 1994 were won by Nelson Mandela, who was the candidate of the African National Congress Party.
Poland Hungary Bulgaria
In the aftermath of World War II, the influence of the Soviet Union extended through the countries that were invaded by fascists in the Eastern Front, such as Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.
In January 1947, elections were held, resulting in the communist Republic of Poland. Previously elections were intervened so the communist candidates could turn victorious, and the members of communist resistance continued to resist in the territories near to Ucrain but fierce soviets intervention turned to mass arrest where all kinds of executions, deportations, and imprisonment took place.
In Hungary, the Soviets imposed harsh conditions that seized key raw materials and interfered in the internal affairs and social, policymaking. The Red army set some vigilance with police to persecute political opponents and enemies of the state.
In September 1944, The Soviets declared war on Bulgary, under the argument that this country allowed its territory where the Wehrmacht (Germany) crossed and continued to press the frontlines eastwards. The Red Army motivated a coup d Etat where communists also set favorable conditions for the creation of a communist regime.
-This countries became to form the Eastern bloc, a period that lasted several decades until the 1989 Revolutions set an important amount of political and social changes in Europe in East and Central Europe, causing most of the socialist states, formerly puppet states to Soviet Russia to collapse and engage in democratic process and incorporate a different economic model.
The map shows key allied states in this Eastern bloc
The answer to this question is False.
Free trade is an international trade (import and export)
that has no restrictions and tariffs. Free trade has the following benefits it
will increase exports, free trade will increase competition in the market, it
can reduce tariffs, it can help a country make use of surplus raw materials,
and it will increase economic welfare.
