According to the Declaration of Independence, what does the king of England want to establish in America? A. A republic B. A new parliament C. Absolute tyranny D. A democracy

[ad_1]

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.

Well I live in Florida so; I can explain tourism has always had a large role in our history. During our development, tourism gave us the much needed boost in economy that we needed to get on our feet. People coming from all over to enjoy the oranges and warm sun and beaches was a large source of income for people all over. More people to boy products = a larger income. The ‘boom and bust’ is what im guessing was the time right before the stock market crashed. Americans were richer then ever, they took more vacations, they generally thought of themselves having a brighter economic future, which caused more spending, more vacations, more extravagance. This made Florida truly flourish for a time, becoming a hotspot for wealthy vacation homes. The Great Depression almost killed us.. many buisness owners had come to depend on tourism to make a living wage, but since the great depression loomed over everyone, no one took vacations. No one had extra money to spend. Many of those wealthy vacation homes went into foreclosure. The Floridian Economy tanked during this time, so bad we even feel ripple effects of it today, even though we have built up so much more.

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

What did the federal reserve act, signed by president woodrow wilson in 1913 establish?

[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. ”

According to cymene howe, when nicaraguan sexual activists work to establish lesbian identity among both cochonas and femininas, what has been the result?

[ad_1]

Answer:

Americans will pay more for goods produced in Mexico in 2011.

Explanation:

This is a situation of devaluation of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso. If in 2009 the dollar was worth 16 pesos, but in 2011 it is 14, it means that the purchasing power of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso has decreased, although it is still high.

In that case, for an American to buy products produced in Mexico in 2011, he or she will spend a little more dollars than he or she would spend in 2009. This is common, since the currencies fluctuate according to the financial market . Thus, the dollar can be valued or devalued, as happened in this example.

If, for example, in 2015 the dollar will buy 20 pesos, it will mean that the dollar appreciated in relation to the peso, increasing the purchasing power of Americans for Mexican products.

When the Texan revolution broke out and the war for independence began in 1835, Goliad was seen as a solid military stronghold because there was an important military supply barracks in the Fort of the Bay, built by the former Spanish Army.

Goliad was located halfway between the port of Copano, to which the Mexican army sent by sea soldiers, ammunition, armament, garrisons destined for the Alamo de San Antonio de Béjar, which functioned as the main political center of Texas.

When Goliad was taken in the second battle of the war, this forced the Mexican army to send its provisions by land, which would severely hamper logistics and would be key in the capture of General Santa María and consequent conclusion of the conflict and declaration of Independence winning the Texas Army.

According to the declaration of independence what does the king of england want to establish

[ad_1]

In the Two Treatises of Government (1689), The French philosopher John Locke claimed that men were by nature free and equal, but with the purpose to interact in a healthy society, they needed to transfer some of their rights to a government in a “Social Contract”. Under that contract, the government had to be elected by the people and had to protect people’s natural rights to life, liberty, and property, and, whenever the government failed to do so, people had the authority to abolish it and replace it.

These ideas highly influenced the Declaration of Independence, in which the Thirteen American Colonies unanimously declared independence from Britain for its tyrannical rule. The colonists used Locke’s ideas in the Preamble of the document to denounce the British crown for violating the social contract:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.

Answer with explanation:

Graph drawn by Pauley ,for the change in temperature of hot tea:

→Function Decreases Quickly first, and then decreases more slowly as time passes

If the equation of the function has been linear, there must have been constant rate of  decrease of temperature.

Here,when we compose the function,that is , f(x)=y, where,x=t,t_{1},t_{2},t_{3},...

that is , y(temperature), decreases,when time increases.

Suppose this function is linear,represented as

→ y=k x, where k is the slope of line , a fixed real umber, it shows that,y and x are directly proportional to each other,that is when time increases ,temperature increases or vice versa.

→But , here the situation is different,that is with increase in one variable(time),other variable (temperature), decreases .  

So,we can conclude that, the given function can’t be linear.

Option D: It is nonlinear because linear functions increase or decrease at the same rate. is description about the situation Described.

Explanation:

A compound-complex sentence is made from two independent clauses and at least one dependent clause. The sentence above contains two independent clauses and two dependent clauses. The difference between an independent clause and a dependent one is that the former can stand on its own as a complete sentence because it represents a complete thought, while the latter can’t (see 1 & 2).

1) To cope with their burgeoning populations

2) Most of whom were unskilled workers looking for jobs in factories

1 and 2 are dependent clauses. As such, they can’t stand alone as complete sentences, they depend on the main clause.

Thomas Hobbes: Leviathan> In the Leviathan Hobbes (1587-1666) assumes that men are selfish and that the world does not satisfy all their needs, which makes them hostile to others. This would be the state of nature, where all would fight against all seeking individual interests. For peace of mind, men must give up some liberties. For this, all men make a Social Contract, giving moderating power to the State.  

 John Locke: 2nd Treaty on Civil Government> Locke contradicts Hobbes by arguing that the state of nature could not be a war of all against all, but a state of perfect freedom, without any form of subordination or subjection, all men being equal in power. In this context, men would be judges of their own causes and therefore the punishments would be extreme, which made them create a pact for the mutual conservation of life, through the Social Contract.

Jean Jacques Rousseau: The Social Contract> Unlike Hobbes and Lock, Rousseau considers man naturally good in the state of nature, and tries to explain the reason for the revocation of man’s freedom through the Social Contract. His conclusion is that in the civil state power relations may be disproportionate and the preservation of man’s well-being in civil society would depend on a hierarchy of socially instituted power.

William Blackstone: Commentaries on the Laws of England> Commentaries on the Laws of England> Introduces the “common law” of the people before the institutionalization and the evolution of the laws in England. His work of four volumes is a milestone for being the first that dealt with legal principles in a tangible way for lay people.

What leadership characteristics did George Washington demonstrate during the Revolution? How did he affect the outcome of the Revolution? Consider his role both as a political and a military leader during the American Revolution.

1 Persevering. He remained with the matter until there was some resolve. He clearly sought after a positive result since he remained on a leader when things were at their darkest. He could have been home at Mount Vernon making himself and his significant other more agreeable from his homesteads and speculations. 

2 He kept his own gathering. I mean he wasn’t inclined to requesting that lesser officers share his wretchedness or happiness or anything. He kind of left us with the possibility of a solitary pioneer as a national picture. He was correct by chance as administration by advisory group is just a formula for calamity. 

3 His technique was splendid. He outmaneuvered the best armed force on the planet, their soldiers of fortune and pioneers. Obviously he had been a military pioneer for over 25 years when the Revolution broke out. His first significant order was a Virginia civilian army walk against the French at present-day Pittsburgh. He lost, at the same time, clearly, he learned. 

4 While not driving by board of trustees he did enroll and utilize a portion of the finest military personalities in Europe. Lafayette, Pulaski and von Steuben are however just the better known Europeans who came to battle the Brits and advance the American cause. Washington was never excessively glad, making it impossible to request and acknowledge some assistance.

Under the allotment system, many American Indian families did not farm and ignored the government policy. were successful farmers and competed with white settlers. tried to farm communally and established their own system. made an effort to succeed at farming but often failed.

Under the allotment system, many American Indian families made an effort to succeed at farming but often failed.

The allotment system was created by the Dawes Act. The Dawes Act was an Act of Congress of February 8, 1887, regulating in the United States the distribution of land to Native Americans, in the Indian Territory that will become Oklahoma in 1907. It carried the name of the Massachusetts senator Henry L. Dawes, his principal initiator. The law was amended in 1891 and in 1906 by the Burke Act.

The law pursued two main objectives: first of all, the community structure of the Indians was to be broken and the Indians thus integrated into American society. The Indians should become farmers. As such, according to official opinion, they would need far less land than they claimed for their traditional non-sedentary lifestyle as hunters and gatherers. The Indians themselves fought mostly against a life as a farmer, especially those of the northern Plains. These saw the farm work as unworthy and restrictive. Another advantage of the parcelling saw the government in the liberated surplus land, which it could sell at a profit to whites. Overall, the Indians lost thereby 36 million hectares of a total of 55 million hectares in 1887.

Throughout history, how have cultures used texture to create unique works of art? What types of mediums have been most commonly used?

The texture is nothing more than a surface of a form constructed from elements such as dots, lines, shapes, arrangements, patterns, curves, and other special effects that result in a volume which can be rough, smooth, soft, viscous, shaggy, silky, wrinkled, scratchy, thick and oily, sometimes even more than just one feature. The texture has a strong sensory power and for that reason, many cultures used the texture to create works of art that could convey a feeling, a sensation or a message, involving the vision and the touch that elevated the meaning of the work.

The most used textures were those created from mosaic, sculpture in the round, sculpture in relief and stained-glass.

Which of the following was not an effect of proxy wars? an arms race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union the rise of democracies in most of Latin America a politically united Vietnam a politically divided Korean peninsula 2. This is a line graph showing the cost of wars in the 20th century. It shows WWI cost 20 billion dollars, WWII cost 296 billion dollars, Korea cost 30 billion dollars, Vietnam cost 111 dollars, and the Persian Gulf War cost 61 billion dollars. Which is the best explanation for why the Cold War is not included in this chart? Since the Cold War didn’t involve fighting, there was no money budgeted or lost in fighting the Cold War. Because the Cold War is just another name for the Vietnam War, that cost is included in the graph. The Cold War was not a conventional war, and its costs are measured by the individual proxy wars. It is included in the costs of World War II as part of the global post-war recovery. 3. Summarize the causes and effects of the arms race and proxy wars in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Use the table below to answer the following question. United States Military Deaths by Country of Casualty Country of Casualty Number of Records Cambodia 520 Laos 733 North Vietnam 1,124 Communist China 10 Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) 55,629 Thailand 177 Total 58,193 What can be inferred from this chart? Most of the fighting in the Vietnam War took place in South Vietnam. The Vietnam War resulted in large numbers of civilian casualties. The majority of the casualties in North Vietnam were not American soldiers. Military deaths in Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand were under-reported. 4.

Answer:

D.Prolonged conflict between Jewish and Palestinian people inhabiting the land

Explanation:

The history of Israel as a State begins with its proclamation of independence in 1948. This historical fact was achieved after more than sixty years of political and diplomatic efforts by Zionism to establish a sovereign nation in what they considered to be their homeland , the ancient Land of Israel, also known as Palestine from the time of the Roman Empire.

Immediately after the declaration of the State of Israel, Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Iraq and Lebanon invaded the new country. In a bloody and desperate war characterized by the use of improvised weapons and skillful tactics, the Jews were able to repel the Arab attack and even advanced occupying new territories. A ceasefire was signed by both sides, establishing that the occupied territories would remain in the hands of Israel. As a result of this war, Israel occupied the territory assigned to it by the United Nations, plus a good part of the territory assigned to the Arabs and the western part of Jerusalem (Israel increased its territory by almost 50%). The western area of ​​the Jordan (known as the West Bank after the Jordanian annexation) was occupied by the Arabs, occupied by Transjordania and the Gaza Strip, occupied by Egypt.

In 1949, under the auspices of the United Nations, four armistices were signed in Rhodes (Greece) between Israel and Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, but in practice they never succeeded in solving the problem of Palestine and the violence in this region continues until our days.

Two main causes of Arab Israel conflicts in the twentieth century were:

a) the division of Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab states. 

This general statement is quite known, as all three monotheistic religions claim ownership of the Holy Land. 
We can generally say that after the Crusades, Christians remained out of the conflict due to the massive losses they faced when they had tried to invade and conquer it (when Salah Al deen was at power, before the rise of the Ottoman empire). 

I am not sure about this one, but I assume the best answer would be D)US support for Israels military

It’s a generally known fact that the US is a close ally of Israel, and this is mainly why there are immense issues and conflicts between the two religions whom are living in the same territory/land. 

Generally, this topic tends to be those ones that kind of get biased responses (you know, due to people taking sides). I tried making this response as non-biased as possible, filtering it from opinion and such. 

Hope this helps. Comment if you need assistance. Glad to assist! 🙂

The first major political issue faced by the us government after the ratification of the constitution concerned the proposal of alexander hamilton to establish a what?

[ad_1]

1. I believe the answer is:

a. Freedom of speech was eliminated.

b. Enemies of the state were imprisoned.

d. Cultural identity was destroyed.

The communists policies transferred all the power in society to the hands of the government. This made the citizens to have very little freedom, and the citizens are subjected to the orders made by the government. Since the press in communist regime tend to be owned by the government, it is very easy to paint all of government’s opposition in negative light.

2. I believe the answer is: changing Stalin’s policies

The de-stalinization was initiated when Nikita Khrushchev rose into power.  It involves removing all of stalin’s influence in the government (firing all of his followers and backers). It also revert back communism ideology that Stalin implemented and reverse it back to pre-stalin socialism.

3. I believe the answer is: B. Economic issues

The economic policies installed by Krushchev failed to stabilize the russian economy. At that time, the price of basic necessities such as food and housing started to rose rapidly (between 25 – 35 %). This lead to many dissatisfaction among citizens and revolts started to appear opposing Krushchev’s regime.

4.I believe the answer is: d. open the country to foreign visitors.

The purpose of this policy was to increase the national income from tourism industry which previously dead under previous regime. It also invites many investors from other countries to give their investment , which might lead to establishment of many job opportunities.

5. b.They increased censorship of arts and literature.

Both Brezhnev and Stalin believe that arts and literature could very much influence the way people think. Because of this, they increase the censorship of arts and literature in order to ensure that none of them were made to criticise their regime.

6. I believe the answer is: c.The Soviets wanted to reverse democratic reforms.

The previous leaders before Imre Nagy was backed by the Soviet Union. Nagy did not agree with how soviet union conduct its policies and initiated a democratic reform in hungary.  Removing nagy from the government would reverse this democratic reform and bring back hungary to soviet’s influence.

7. I believe the answer is: D.The Soviets agreed to make limited concessions.

Before they initiate the rebellion, all territories in Poland and Hungary were fully controlled by the soviet union’s influence. Limited concessions refers to the territories given to each country in which they have a limited autonomy to govern themselves.

8. I believe the answer is: C.People could read about ideas contrary to state policy.

When the soviet union’s impose heavy censorship to all media, they can control the narrative that perceived by its people. The media shall never paint the government in negative ways. When the censorship is eased back, many media would start to appear and criticize the bad things that the government had done, which might weaken the communist party’s influence in the country.

9. I believe the answer is: A. They developed new and powerful weapons

During Khrushchev’s reign, the USSR developed several nuclear weapons that are capable to create havoc to any country on earth. Khrushchev at that time believe that in order to maintain peace , a country need to possess a certain level of threat to others, so other countries do not feel that they could do as they please.

With Mexico it was a little different, they declined many of the substantial offers the US made to them on several occasions.  Not much later, in 1846, President James Polk sent troops to the disputed area, which started the confrontations between the two countries and on March 13 of 1846 President Polk officially declared war on Mexico.

Imagine that the government decided that a service had to be performed, such as the delivery of mail, but no for-profit company was interested in performing this service. Which of the following type of government agency would the government most likely establish? …………… a. A regulatory commission b. A government corporation c. An independent agency d. A cabinet department

[ad_1]

The general mainstream view is called the New Neoclassical Synthesis: Based primarily on the work of John Maynard Keynes, it says that the government has a vital role to play in stabilizing the economy during times of crisis by two basic methods.

The first is monetary policy, the decision of the central bank as to what target interest rates to set, which determines the amount of money in circulation. When the economy is in recession, the central bank should lower interest rates to increase the amount of money in circulation and thereby offset the recession.

The second is fiscal policy, the decision of the government as to how much to spend and how much to take in taxes. During recessions, especially very severe recessions where monetary policy is insufficient, the central bank should run a cyclical deficit, spending more money than they take in taxes, in order to increase the demand for goods and lift the economy out of recession. Then, once full employment is restored, they should balance their budget or even run a surplus in order to pay down the debt they incurred in the recession.

This is the mainstream view, but there are many economists who believe that it is no longer adequate. At the extreme left there are Marxian economists who believe that the government should take a great deal of control over the economy; at the extreme right there are Austrian economists who believe that the government should have almost no involvement in the economy whatsoever. There are also alternative centrist views, such as those that apply insights from behavioral economics to understand the causes of recessions and find better ways to prevent them or respond to them.
