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. ”

[ad_1]

Hi there!

The answer you are looking for is option Pattern and rhythm.  

Pattern and Rhythm are principles of Desing.

A pattern is a repetition of design, an element that occurs over and over again in a composition. In this case, there are two examples of repetitions. The first one is the repeated use of alternating same size red and white stripes. The second one is the alternating rows of same size white stars on the blue background.  

On the other hand, rhythm is the repetition of shapes, lines and forms to produce the look and feel of movement in an artwork. In the American flag, this can be seen in the repeating and set distance between the white stars on the blue background, and also through the use of same size stripes going from top to bottom of the flag alternating colours.

Hope this helps!

Answer:    Joshua is correct

Explanation:  Animals, however well preserved and bred in conditions that are not in nature, that is, not in their natural habitat, animals still retain the animal instinct. Thus, young animals in the wild can be met daily, except for members of their species, and members of all other species, including predators, as well as humans. This means that in the natural environment, young animals can find themselves in a variety of dangers on a daily basis, but not only that. In this way young animals develop their ability to survive, escape from predators, manage, and develop their hunting skills, etc. All this is essential for socialization because according to all these developed skills and abilities their socialization depends. To deny any of the conditions prevailing in the wild means to deny the development of any skill or instinct, to deny proper socialization.

Poland

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.

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.

T (A) = 30,000 machine hours

T (B) = 21,000 labor hours

We are asked to find for the predetermined Overhead Allocation
Rates. This is calculated using the formula:

Overhead Allocation Rates = MOC / T

 

Overhead Allocation Rate (A) = $160,000 / 30,000 machine

Let the boxes be Box 1, Box 2, Box 3. 

consider the 3 white balls. They can be all of them in one box:

(3, 0, 0) (3 in Box 1, 0 in box 2 and 0 in box 0)
(0, 3, 0)
(0, 0, 3)

We can have 2 in one box, and 1 in one of the remaining boxes:

(2, 0, 1)
(2, 1, 0)
(0, 2, 1)
(1, 2, 0)
(0, 1, 2)
(1, 0, 2)

and there is only one way: (1, 1, 1) to place one white ball in each box

In total there are: 3+6+1=10 ways to place the white balls. Similarly there are 10 ways to place the black ones.

Since every placement of the white balls can be combined with any placement of the black balls, there are 10*10=100 ways to place the 3white balls and the 3 black bals in the boxes.

Answer: 100

Dearest great-granddaughter, 
I have been through thick and thin, hardships and moments I will remember forever. I am passing this on to you, for I know I may die soon but you will surely live on to the 2000th century. Below is enclosed the changes I have been through and advice to help you through them in the future. 
  Wars are awful,terrible,terrible things; it hurts the lives of many. As soon as you think everything is better it gets worse again. You find everything around you crashing down. My advice on this is: stay strong and believe in what you know is right. Military has never been an easy topic. I cry for fear of what may happen to you, but no matter what, STAY STRONG. This is important no matter what.
  All through your life, you will find people changing and growing into different lifestyles. This is okay. Culture is meant to change, my dear. Choose what you feel is right and live it out with all your might. Culture is what makes us unique. We all have at least a little bit of variation.
  Now for science and technology. Oh, the times, they are changing! It seems every day a new man finds a solution to a problem he has been searching for for years! First, it was that man Thomas Edison, presenting the light bulb and now W.H. Carrier patents the design of the air conditioner! Oh, I’m sure soon there will be a different type of telephone and all these fascinating things to imagine! I do wish I could watch it all, but I’m afraid my days are numbered.
  I love you, dear, and I hope that this will help you find your way through life. Embrace the bad things that happen, so you can love the good things even more. I love you with all my heart.
With Love,
So-and-so

Excerpt from The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin My elder brothers were all put apprentices to different trades. I was put to the grammar-school at eight years of age, my father intending to devote me, as the tithe of his sons, to the service of the Church. My early readiness in learning to read (which must have been very early, as I do not remember when I could not read), and the opinion of all his friends, that I should certainly make a good scholar, encouraged him in this purpose of his. My uncle Benjamin, too, approved of it, and proposed to give me all his short-hand volumes of sermons, I suppose as a stock to set up with, if I would learn his character. I continued, however, at the grammar-school not quite one year, though in that time I had risen gradually from the middle of the class of that year to be the head of it, and farther was removed into the next class above it, in order to go with that into the third at the end of the year. Part A What effect does the phrase “would learn his character” have on the meaning of this passage? It implies that his uncle has an unusual personality. It suggests that he is not talking about a real person. It indicates he would train in his uncle’s profession. It proposes he will read his uncle’s sermons. Part B How does the phrase “would learn his character” contribute to the passage’s tone? It conveys amusement. It reveals frustration. It shows a feeling of disgust. It creates a sense of regret.

Answer:

Part A: It indicates he would train in his uncle’s profession.

Part B: It conveys amusement.

In this excerpt, Franklin is describing his childhood education. He states that everyone believed he was going to be good at school, and encouraged his father to provide him with an education. He also describes how his uncle Benjamin had given him his volumes of sermons. He indicates that this was done in case he wanted to train in his uncle’s profession. However, Franklin also exhibits some amusement as to the purpose of these texts and their connection to his future profession.

Read the passage from Initiation. “Remember the part about talking back and smiling,” Louise Fullerton had put in, laughing. She was another celebrity in high school, pretty and dark and Vice-President of the student council. “You can’t say anything unless your big sister asks you something or tells you to talk to someone. And you can’t smile, no matter how you’re dying to.” The girls had laughed a little nervously, and then the bell had rung for the beginning of afternoon classes. Which phrase from the passage is the best example of indirect characterization?another celebrity in high schoolpretty and darkyou can’t smilegirls had laughed a little nervously

The correct answer is D. Girls had laughed a little nervously

Explanation:

In literature characterization is about the description or construction of a character during a story, this means characterization is about letting the reader know how the character is including physical features and personality traits. Additionally, characterization can be direct or indirect, in the case of direct characterization the narrator tells the reader the way a character is or looks by using adjectives to describe it; however, in the case of indirect characterization the narrator does not describe the characters directly, but uses their behavior, reactions or the situation of the character to tell the reader something about the character. Considering this the phrase “girls had laughed a little nervously” is part of indirect characterization as the narrator is not directly describing the personality of the girls, but their behavior and reactions indirectly suggest to the reader the way the girls are which is what indirect characterization is about.

The correct answer is A) countries with universal education showed greater economic progress that countries without it.

The introduction of universal public education affected the economies of the United States and Europe in that nations with universal education showed greater economic progress that countries without it.

Universal education promotes the principle that everybody deserves an education and regardless of its race, sex or nationality, they should have equal access to an education opportunity. Universal education implies that all children have the obligation to go to school, to elementary school, and to secondary school. Their parents do not need to pay for the education of children at these levels.  

In countries such as Mexico, universal public education is granted until college or university level, where students pay nothing or a minimal amount of money every semester to cover a basic registration, such as is the case of The National Mexican University, UNAM.

1- The correct answer is C. In Miranda v. Arizona, the main discussion refers to the guarantee against selfincrimination.

Miranda v. Arizona was a decision of the Supreme Court of the United States. The Supreme Court ruled that both incriminating and exculpatory statements made in response to an interrogation by a defendant in police custody are admissible in a trial only if the prosecution can show that the defendant was informed before being questioned of what is now it is known as Miranda warning: the right to consult a defense lawyer before and during interrogation, and the right not to self-incriminate. And besides, the defendant should not only understand these rights, but should also give them up voluntarily.

2- The requirements for libel detailed in New York Times v Sullivan protect the principle of judicial review.

The judges must check whether or not there is a actual malice in the statements made by the press before an aggrieved individual. If there were no actual malice, press freedom predominates before the right of individuals.

3- After the Westboro Baptist Church protested the funeral of Matthew Snyder, the Supreme  Court ruling in Phelps v. Snyder upheld that the government cannot regulate the content of a protest.

Albert Snyder, the father of a dead Marine, filed a lawsuit against Fred Phelps, his two daughters and the Westboro Baptist Church, who protested at the funeral of his son.

The Court ruled in favor of Fred Phelps, stating that those who speak publicly about a public issue can not be sued for the deliberate infliction of emotional distress, even if the speech in question is insidious or insulting. The verdict was supported by eight judges, while Samuel Alito was opposed.
