Francisco Franco’s ability to seize and maintain power rested mainly on his ability to align himself with powerful groups connections with the Holy Roman Church decision not to ally with France or Germany reconstruction efforts after the war

[ad_1]

Francisco Franco was a military dictator that ruled over Spain from 1936 until his death in 1975. He was able to maintain this position thanks to his ability to align himself with powerful groups from Spain and from different countries. An example of this situation is the fact that his friendly relationship with the Nazi German government, and his fascist policies meant Spain was not invaded by Germany like France was.

Answer:

c. Gatsby’s desire to regain what he once had.

Explanation:

While Nick Carraway and Jay Gatsby lives in West Egg which is an inferior part of the island, East Egg represents the rich families who had inherited wealth from generations, unlike the ‘new found’ riches of those in the West Egg. The green light in “The Great Gatsby” was first mentioned in chapter 1 when Nick and Gatsby met after he had returned from his dinner with his cousin Daisy and her husband living in East Egg. It is representative of Gatsby’s desire to regain what was once his- money, power, class and being in the company of the rich society again, and most important of all, Daisy.

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 🙂

Karl Marx developed the economic theory of communism.

Further Explanation:

One of Karl Marx’s most famous contributions came in his book the Communist Manifesto. This book explained Mark’s views on government, the economy, and ultimately lead to the creation of communism as an idea.

A communism system is one that is economic and political in nature. In this system, the government would control the means of production, the distribution of goods and resources, and would overall have significant control over society. This system of communism is the opposite of the capitalist/democratic system used in America today. These two ideologies would clash during the mid 20th century in what is now known as the Cold War.

Marx’s ideas were based on his observations of the world around him. He felt that the mistreatment of labor by industry and private corporations would ultimately lead to an uprising by angry laborers all over the world.

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.

There was a time when the Church was very powerful … In those days the Church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Wherever the early Christians entered a town the power structure got disturbed and immediately sought to convict them for being “disturbers of the peace” and “outside agitators.” Things are different now. The contemporary Church is so often a weak, ineffectual voice with an uncertain sound. It is so often the arch-supporter of the status quo. Far from being disturbed by the presence of the Church, the power structure of the average community is consoled by the Church’s silent and often vocal sanction (approved action) of things as they are. What is the main idea of this paragraph?

To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

What is one way that the post-war reform movements in the British and French colonies might be different if they occurred today? Organizers would make use of social media, such as Facebook, to organize and unify. The movements would be struck down more violently because the British and French governments are more powerful. Reformers would not have demanded change because British and French economies are more stable. Fewer people around the world would be aware of the reformers and their calls for change.

Many different types of writing exist in the world, ranging from classic Shakespearean plays to politicians’ speeches to the screenplay treatments that inspired this summer’s biggest blockbuster hits. These works may vary in tone, genre, and type, but as pieces of writing, they should have one thing in common: a purpose.

Authors write for many different reasons. Those reasons are called the author’s purpose. Depending on the purpose, authors may choose all different sorts of writing formats, genres and vernacular. A simple trick to summarize the three main categories of author’s purpose is to use the acronym PIE, which stands for persuading, inform and entertain. Although there are many reasons to write, to persuade, to inform and to entertain represent the three main forms of author’s purpose. Most other reasons can be grouped into those three broader categories.

In American society, romantic love is considered the main reason for people to marry. On the other hand, in some societies, romantic love is considered a form of obsession or madness. In fact, even in many societies where “true love” is not considered a form of insanity, arranged marriages are still the norm. For example, in many cultures it’s believed that marriage is basically an economic arrangement. Thus, a farmer needs a wife both to bear children and to share the farm work while raising new “hands” as additional farm labor. In other societies, marriage is mainly about cementing connections between families. Indeed, most marriages between members of European royal or aristocratic lineages were primarily aimed at creating trust, loyalty, and mutual obligations between privileged and powerful families.

HELP PLEASE ASAP! 1. War breaks out near Country A and B, limiting trade with nearby nations. Country A has a single resource economy and Country B has a diversified economy. Which country is more at risk for economic problems? Country A is more at risk because it has many types of products that it must find new trade partners to buy. Country A is more at risk because it has fewer types of goods to attract new trade partners. Country B is more at risk because it has fewer types of goods to attract new trade partners. Country B is more at risk because it does not have natural resources. 2. Which of the following best describes a disadvantage of a representative democracy compared to a direct democracy? Elections are unnecessary because birth and political party determine the officials. Elected officials may not always act in the best interests of those they represent. People are able to vote directly on issues that they care about. Decision-making is often slower because more people are involved in making the decisions. 3. Which statement about officials found in various forms of government is least accurate? A confederation would likely have several states with powerful state senators. A parliamentary government would likely have a prime minister elected by the legislature. A unitary government would likely have several states with powerful state senators. A federation would likely have a president elected by the people.

[ad_1]

Answer:

1- Country A is more at risk because it has fewer types of goods to attract new trade partners.

2- A disadvantage of a representative democracy compared to a direct democracy is that elected officials may not always act in the best interests of those they represent.

3- The least accurate statement is the one that says that a unitary government would likely have several states with powerful state senators.

Explanation:

1- If war breaks out near Country A and Country B, and Country A has a single resource economy while Country B has a diversified economy, Country A would be more at risk because as it only produces one resource, it would be more difficult for it to find new markets where to sell its production.

2- Representative democracy is often presented as the most efficient form of democracy possible in mass societies, arguing that it allows an effective decision by a sufficiently small number of people in the name of the greatest number. The efficiency of the service can be judged based on the metrics of profitability and efficiency over time. Representatives who vote on behalf of the people allow a monetary benefit, since the use of polling stations, vote counters, etc. is reduced. The government is generally responsible for paying the salaries of the representatives and would have to cover the substantial cost of a democracy. Representative democracy has been conceptually associated with historically instantiated by the political system known as “representative government,” which was born in the eighteenth century with the French and American revolutions. It is a system in which people choose their legislators (representatives), who are then responsible to them for their activity within the government.

3- A unitary government is a form of government where power is concentrated and there is a single center of power that extends its action throughout the territory of the respective nation through its agents and local authorities, delegates of that same central power. A unitary government is the opposite of a federal government.

Answer:

d.) most native americans had the same culture and traditions.

Explanation:

The Southwest district, extending through present-day Arizona and New Mexico and into Colorado, Texas, Utah, and Mexico, was home to an assortment of Indian gatherings and social practices pre-colonization. In this area abided a few gatherings we aggregately call the Pueblo. The Spanish initially gave them this name, which signifies “town” or “village,” since they lived in towns or towns of lasting stone-and-mud structures with covered rooftops. The three principle gatherings of the Pueblo individuals were the Mogollon, Hohokam, and Anasazi.  

The Anasazi once in a while called the Ancestral Pueblos, dwelled in the Four Corners locale — where Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona meet; the Mogollon lived for the most part in southwestern New Mexico, and the Hohokam ruled the desert of southern Arizona. Students of history gauge that these three clans ruled over the locale from roughly 200-1500 CE, and either broke up or advanced into the Pueblo Indians—whom the Spanish experienced who still live in current New Mexico. They have additionally changed into the Zuni and Hopi clans. The Apache and Navajo clans landed in the Pueblo locale around 1200 CE from the Pacific Northwest and stayed unmistakable from the Pueblo individuals living in the region.

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.

In “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” the speaker is a human, who experiences the startling beauty of nature through the unexpected discovery of an entire sea of daffodils by the water. This poem is pensive and calm, using light, frivolous vocabulary: the daffodils are “fluttering and dancing in the breeze,” and “tossing their heads in sprightly dance.” The waves in the bay, as well, dance and sparkle, and yet the daffodils are more captivating even than the ocean, multitudinous as they are, as the stars in the sky. In Wordsworth’s poem nature is powerful and inviting, exhibiting forces of healing in the form of bright colors and gentle vibes. It is recounted from a comfortable, safe perspective; when the speaker is resting on his safe, warm couch, the memories of his solo walk along the bay …flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils. These recollections serve as a comfort and pleasure to him, even when he is comfortable in a pleasant environment. Such was the power of the scene. De la Mare’s poem also presents nature as a powerful force, but an impersonal, destructive one. The poem is told from the perspective of sea birds in a storm, and the vocabulary is a violent as Wordsworth’s is serene: “And the wind rose, and the sea rose,/To the angry billows’ roar,” and in the second verse, And the yeasty surf curdled over the sands, The gaunt grey rocks between; And the tempest raved, and the lightning’s fire Struck blue on the spindrift hoar – Here the birds have lost control, and the storm is forcing them onto the shore, waves tossing and wind howling, a wholly different scene than Wordsworth’s happy spring day. Even in the end, when the storm breaks and the sun comes out, we see the lingering effects of the chaos – “the bright green headlands shone/As they’d never shone before,” and yet within this setting we have vast hoards of sea birds breaking this lovely post-storm calm with their “screeching, scolding, [and] scrabbling.” But in the final two lines of the poem, we see also “A snowy, silent, sun-washed drift/Of sea-birds on the shore.” And herein lies the true destruction: while a whole host of birds are tumbling through the sky, another host of birds has been killed by the violence of the storm. Both poems depict the unpredictability of nature, and yet because Wordsworth’s poem is from the point of view of a man, on a bright spring day, his poem is more domestic and simple than that of de la Mare. The latter presents the point of view of nature itself, only to switch to a third person, withdrawn perspective at the end of the poem; humans have no role in the events that unfold. Any humans that exist in the area would have been safely indoors during the storm, away from any danger. We therefore get the rawness of nature where we would normally escape it for our fires and our beds; here is the flip-side of natural beauty – natural destruction.
