What are two ways that the Soviet people lost their freedom due to communism in the Soviet Union?


Answer:

freedom of enterprise and freedom of speech.

Explanation:

In economic terms, people under communism in the USSR lost their freedom of enterprise as all means of production and production itself was seized by the state in its effort to achieve a socialist regime that would redistribute production and capital amongst the workers of the state. In practical terms, under communism, especially during the dark and authoritarian phases, like Stalinism, people lost their freedom of speech as this was highly censored and controlled, and when the system deemed it necessary, also punished.

A confederate victory at antietam in september 1862 probably would have won the confederacy independence because a. the border states would have joined the confederacy. b. the union armies were already heavily demoralized. c. lincoln would have been unable to issue the emancipation proclamation. d. the republicans would have lost the subsequent congressional elections. e. france and britain were on the verge of recognizing the confederate government and providing it with critically needed military assistance.


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.

Which three statements correctly describe outcomes of the Latin American revolutions? A. Many revolutions took years to accomplish. B. European countries lost valuable lands. C. All the leaders were jailed in Spain. D. France owned new territories In South America. E. Revolutionaries became heroes in their countries.


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.

Given that mass was lost from the copper (ii) carbonate hydroxide hydrate during heating, in this decomposition reaction, how many moles of solid product were produced? the molar mass of the solid product is 79.545 g/mol (number of moles = mass (g) / molar mass (g/mol)).


This problem is to apply Roult’s Law.

Roult’s Law states that the vapor pressure, p, of a solution of a non-volatile solute is equal to the vapor pressure of the pure solvent, Po solv, times the mole fraction of the solvent, Xsolv

p = Xsolv * Po sol

X solv = number of moles of solvent / number of moles of solution

The solvent is water and the solute (not volatile) is glycerin.

Number of moles = mass in grams / molar mass

mass of water = 132 ml * 1 g/ml = 132 g

molar mass of water = 18 g/mol

=> number of moles of water = 132 g / 18 g/mol = 7.33333 mol

mass of glycerin = 27.2 g

molar mass of glycerin:, C3H8O3: 3 * 12 g/mol + 8 * 1 g/mol + 3*16 g/mol = 92 g/mol

number of moles of glycerin = 27.2g / 92 g/mol = 0.29565

total number of moles = 7.33333 moles + 0.29565 moles = 7.62898 moles

=> X solv = 7.33333 / 7.62898 = 0.96125

=> p = 0.96125 * 31.8 torr ≈ 30.57 torr ≈ 30.6 torr.

Answer: 30.6 torr

Why are digital calendars considered to be a convenient way to maintain a study schedule?A. They are always backed up on the cloud.B. They can be used anywhere.C. They update changes automatically.D. They can never be lost or destroyed.


Hey there!

Let’s assume that this question is referring to every digital calendar ever made. As in, even those made on devices without internet connectivity or any other fancy features that we utilize with many digital calendars today. 

If a planning device that came with a digital calendar didn’t have internet connectivity, it wouldn’t be able to be connected to the cloud. Back when these devices were around, it wasn’t even plausible to store things like calendar events and contacts in what we know as the “cloud”. Also, these devices probably had to be hardwired to a computer and new software had to be downloaded to them, so the updates weren’t automatic. Archaic, right?

Also, consider the fact that even reputable websites/companies such as Google with Google Calendars or Apple with iCalendar will never go without their malfunctions or threats. Sometimes, these websites can be hacked and the data that they contain can be compromised, especially if they’re stored on the cloud. Also, even though it’s not realistic, Google or Apple could one day decide to completely get rid of their calendar programs altogether. So, this means that digital calendars are definitely able to be destroyed or lost. 

That just leaves “They can be used anywhere”. This is true, even with those archaic devices specifically used for scheduling events and such. Nowadays, you have your phone and possibly a laptop on you at all times, which will likely have a calendar on it as a stock application. So, I think this is your answer. 

Hope this helped you out! 🙂

Graham met with an accident, where he damaged his retina. The doctor suggested that Graham lost his eyesight. The only possible solution would be retinal transplantation. What could be the reason that the retinal cells unlike those of skin cells do not regenerate?


The right answer is Transgenic organisms can produce a desired product that may benefit other organisms.

A transgenic organism contains DNA combining  stably integrated in all its cells. In other words, the organism, be it a plant, an animal or a microorganism, has a new piece of DNA embedded in it. a chromosome in each of its cells. This “new piece” of DNA usually contains a gene from another organism (plant, animal or other) that has been modified to be expressed in the new  organization. A transgenic organism may even possess the DNA of another organism of the same species. The inserted gene can be called the transgene.

Currently, diabetics are treated by injecting insulin from either a healthy human donor or cultures of genetically modified (transgenic) bacteria that secrete the protein.
