Under adolf hitler, the nazis developed a carefully planned network of concentration camps. these were designed to hold all those deemed undesirable by the nazi leadership. an individual consigned to a camp was forced to work, given a specific uniform that was the same as all other prisoners, given a limited ration of food, no access to amenities, and faced a near certain death by poison gas. this tragic episode in human history is an extreme example of
The correct answer is A) high unemployment.
The Roman Empire faced all of the following economic problems during its decline except high unemployment.
The Roman Empire decline was due to many reasons. Barbarian tribes invaded Roman territories. The last one was the invasion led by barbaric leader Odoacer, that deposed Emperor Romulus Augustus in 476. Another reason was the overspending in so many wars and trying to defend territories that were so far away from Rome. This caused a financial crisis in the Empire. One more factor was the government corruption that provoked political instability in the Empire.
What were issues initially faced by the pioneers settling the frontier? A. lack of jobs B. overcrowding C. stark conditions D. none of the above
I would say that the question “How can markets be kept competitive” would not be important for a communist or socialist society as production would not be to meet a world capitalist market price but would be for fulfilling the basic necessities of the people like healthcare and education and food and clothing as well as for mutually beneficial trade with other countries on an equitable basis.
According to allport in the nature of prejudice schemas category is a category that resists change even when faced with contradictory evidence.
Schemas is a framework that created form in dept analysis for behavioral pattern. This pattern is strongly engraved within human’s mind, to the point where it became really hard to change
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.
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. ”
Chronic sore throat, kidney problems, dehydration, gastrointestinal problems, and dental problems are complications commonly experienced by individuals who suffer from bulimia nervosa. It is an eating disorder that is characterized by repeated binge eating and compensatory behaviors like vomiting, fasting, excess exercise and inappropriate use of drugs for weight control. People who has this are obsessed with body weight and shape. Signs of a person having this disorder are rapid changes in weight, bloated, always tired, irregular menstrual period, constipated and many more. There are a number of risks that is associated with this disorder which includes ulcers, osteoporosis, chronic indigestion and risk of infertility.
Because, like America, England, and some other countries, China did not like what Germany was doing. they were forcing christianity on people, on jewish men and women, and they didnt like that so they rebeled, and when that happened, they started bombing places making camps to “enslave” in a way, the Jews because they did not accept there religion. in a way, they were the bullies, and America, China, England, and France, did not like that, so they declared war to protect the innocents.
They worshipped the Supreme God through constant communion with lesser deities and ancestral spirits. This is done by performing libation or sacrifice — offering animals, vegetables, food, flowers and other precious materials.
This is the term given when consulting to oracular deities. There are a lot of techniques on casting divination, but actual practice is done with small objects e.g. bones, shells, stones, leathers or wood pieces.
Cyclical nature of reality
Believing that nature is an integral part of their religion. So, all natural phenomena is thought to be responsible for their daily needs. This encloses aspects such as tides, moon, rain, day, sun, stars, etc.

C) Travelers were exposed to the summer heat and heavy rains. D) Travelers were forced to carry all of their possessions in wagons.
To that end, the first three articles of the Constitution establish three separate branches of government: the legislative, the executive and the judicial.
The modern presidency differs greatly from what the framers intended; initially, they debated the wisdom of having a single president at all, and delegated many of the powers of the executive to Congress.
But the vision of a strong national leader favored by Alexander Hamilton and his fellow Federalists eventually triumphed over opponents like Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, who favored a relatively weak, limited executive branch.
What Does the Executive Branch Do?
The vice president supports and advises the president and is ready to assume the presidency if the president is unable to serve. The vice president is also president of the U.S. Senate, and can cast a tie-breaking vote in the Senate.
Initially, electors did not vote separately for president and vice president, but cast a single vote; the candidate who came in second became the vice president. But in 1804, after two highly contentious national elections, the 12th Amendment changed the voting process to the current system.
The federal government has 15 executive departments (including Defense, State, Justice, Labor, Education, Health and Human Services and so on). Each of these departments is led by a member of the Cabinet, who serve as advisors to the president.
The heads of numerous executive agencies (the Central Intelligence Agency, Environmental Protection Agency, etc.) are not formally members of the Cabinet, but they do fall under the president’s authority. The executive branch also includes more than 50 independent federal commissions, including the Federal Reserve Board, Securities and Exchange Commission and many others.
Another integral part of the executive branch is the Executive Office of the President (EOP), which was created in 1939 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Headed up by the White House chief of staff, the EOP includes the Office of Management and Budget, the Council of Economic Advisers, the National Security Council and the White House Communications and Press Secretary.
Who is in Charge of the Executive Branch?
Article II of the Constitution specified that a president—who is in charge of the executive branch—should be elected to a term of four years. According to its terms, only natural-born citizens of the United States of at least 35 years of age, who have lived in the United States for at least 14 years, are eligible for the nation’s highest executive office.
Only one president in U.S. history—Franklin D. Roosevelt—has served more than two terms in office. In 1951, six years after FDR’s death during his fourth term, Congress ratified the 22nd Amendment, which limited presidents to two terms. This restriction serves as an additional check on the power of any one person over the nation’s government.
The vice president is also elected to a four-year term, but vice presidents can serve an unlimited number of terms, even under different presidents. The president nominates members of the Cabinet, who must then be approved by at least 51 votes in the Senate.
Powers of the President and Executive Branch
Among the president’s most important responsibilities is signing legislation passed by both houses of Congress (the legislative branch) into law.
The president can also veto a bill passed by Congress, though Congress can still make the bill into law by overriding that veto with a two-thirds vote of both houses. Both the presidential veto and Congress’ ability to override the veto are examples of the system of checks and balances established by the Constitution.
The executive branch is also responsible for conducting diplomacy with other nations. The president appoints ambassadors and other diplomats and can negotiate and sign treaties, which two-thirds of the Senate must then ratify. The president also appoints federal judges, including justices to the Supreme Court, and has the power to pardon those convicted of federal crimes, except in the case of impeachment.
In addition to signing bills passed by Congress into law, the president can also issue executive orders, which direct how existing laws are interpreted and enforced. In an executive order, the president must identify whether the order is based on the U.S. Constitution or a law.
Executive orders are recorded in the Federal Register and considered binding, but they are subject to legal review and the federal courts can knock them down. This is another way the system of checks and balances can function.
Virtually every president back to George Washington has made use of the executive order. (The only president not to sign one was William Henry Harrison, who died after just one month in office.) Partly due to his extended tenure in the Oval Office, Franklin D. Roosevelt holds the records for most exec
The correct answer is capitalism.
The increased pace of economic growth was most dependent on capitalism.
In the 1840s the U.S. economy grew more than it had in the previews 40 years. As the U.S. became more industrialized and farmers shifted to specialization the market revolution occurred and income rose. That is why the increased pace of economic growth was most dependent on capitalism.
Capitalism is an economic system. Private persons or private Company own the goods that are produced. In this system, the supply and demand regulate the prices of the market. The United States has followed the capitalism principals with success Its increased pace of economic growth has depended on this economic system.
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.
