## Terrorism is based on the mistaken belief that a small number of violent acts that target symbolic and meaningful places and events important to the adversary can enable them to achieve political goals. Secondly, terrorists always underestimate the strong revulsion and disgust that the majority of human beings feels toward acts of political violence. The article makes the following argument: In a short paragraph, explain the argument that the author is making. Do you agree or disagree with his claim?

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.

## In which of the following places would you LEAST likely find a metamorphic rock?

1. DNA

2. Prokariotic.

3. Crossing over.

4. Maple tree

5. Primary producers.

6. DIAGRAM NOT SHOWN

7. Lipids.

8. A

Explanation:

1. DNA is the macromolecule responsible for carrying the herederitary information of all cells, and even some viruses, with the exception of retroviruses.

2. Prokariotic cells (eubacteria and archeas) are cosmopolite, and lacks a membrane defined nucleus.

3. Crossing over.

During meiosis, homolog chromosomes pair and exchange genetic material, is also known as genetic recombination. This makes the chromosomes inherited not exactly equal to the corresponding from our fathers, or grandfathers.

4. Maple tree belongs to the clade Angiosperms: flowering plants, which produce seeds. Moss is a flowerless plant, this does not produce seeds. Lichen are composed from algae and cyanobacteria (so, not plants). Mushrooms are not plants.

5. Primary producers, such as bacteria and algae, can make organic  molecules from an abiotic source of energy.

6. DIAGRAM NOT SHOWN

7. Lipids are the main component of all biological membranes. In animals, specially cholesterols prevents the membrane from freezing, due its molecular structure. Tryglicerids, for example, provides besides thermal insulation, energy storage, filling space for keeping the organs together, among other functions.

8. The phosphorous is very slow, since it requires the extraction from rocks, starting from metereological processes (rain, erosion), Once in the soil, bacteria, fungi, plants and animals start to absorb it.

## What is the average speed (miles/hour) for an object going 1500 feet in 1 minute. Round answer to two decimal places.

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

## Dma corporation has bonds on the market with 19.5 years to maturity, a ytm of 6.6 percent, and a current price of \$1,043. the bonds make semiannual payments and have a par value of \$1,000. what must the coupon rate be on these bonds? (do not round intermediate calculations. enter your answer as a percent rounded to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.)

The Contribution Margin per unit (CM) can be calculated
from the difference of Selling Price per unit (SP) and Total Expenses per unit
(TE).

First, let’s calculate the value of SP:

SP = Sales / Units sold

SP = \$1,043,400 / 22,200 units sold

SP = \$47

Second, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = \$234,948 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$8.4

Direct labor per unit = \$131,459 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = \$240,542 / 27,970
units manufactured = \$8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = \$113,220 / 22,200
units sold = \$5.1

TE = \$26.8

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = \$47 – \$26.8

CM = \$20.2 per unit

## Find the indicated probability. round to three decimal places. a test consists of 10 a. True b. False questions. to pass the test a student must answer at least 6 questions correctly. if a student guesses on each question, what is the probability that the student will pass the test?

problem, we use the binomial distribution formula for probability:

P (x) = [n!
/ (n-x)! x!] p^x q^(n-x)

Where,

n = the
total number of test questions = 10

x = the
total number of test questions to pass =   >6

p =
probability of success = 0.5

q =
probability of failure = 0.5

Given the
formula, let us calculate for the probabilities that the student will get at
least 6 correct questions by guessing.

P (6) = [10!
/ (4)! 6!] (0.5)^6 0.5^(4) = 0.205078

P (7) = [10!
/ (3)! 7!] (0.5)^7 0.5^(3) = 0.117188

P (8) = [10!
/ (2)! 8!] (0.5)^8 0.5^(2) = 0.043945

P (9) = [10!
/ (1)! 9!] (0.5)^9 0.5^(1) = 0.009766

P (10) = [10!
/ (0)! 10!] (0.5)^10 0.5^(0) = 0.000977

## According to Maslow, which need are people striving to satisfy when they seek stable places to live and work?

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.

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
