Which was not a reason Johnson used when vetoing the extension of the Freedmen's Bureau and the Civil Rights Bill of 1866? Johnson said the measures "favored" blacks over whites and was outside the bounds of the Constitution in doing so. Johnson said the measures were invalid because Southern states weren't represented in Congress during the vote. Johnson said providing social services for indigents via the Freedman's Bureau was outside the powers delineated in the Constitution. Johnson said the rights and guarantees of the Emancipation Proclamation were sufficient to protect blacks civil rights and a new bill was unnecessary.

Which of the following terms describes the competition between european powers for colonial territory in Africa

[ad_1]

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.

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 🙂

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

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.

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.

Answer:

The answer to the question: Although she does not have a background in law, she hopes to land the job because of the:___, would be: Screening effect.

Explanation:

The screening effect is a theory that is used by companies and recruiters in order to effectively select and screen the best candidates for a specific position, even if these candidates may not fulfill all the requirements for that position. What the theory does is propose that candidates who have completed a college degree show their capacities, even if these are not specifically related to an expected topic, by simply achieving this goal, and are therefore worthy to be taken into account for selection. In the case of Tracy, she has not just fulfilled the part of the theory of finishing her degree, but she has overachieved by obtaining the best degrees in topics that are related to a job as a legal assistant. The screening effect will allow recruiters to see Tracy´s records and take her into account, even if she has never had any legal experience, due to her achievements in related topics.

Why did Italy resent foreign powers after the Treaty of Versailles? The Big Three didn’t give Italy the lands that it had been promised before the war. German goods flooded the Italian market, driving local manufacturers out of business. Italy had to pay the costs of the damages to the other Allied Powers during the war. The United States kept Italy out of the League of Nations and formed alliances against it.

[ad_1]

The correct answer is A: The Big Three didn’t give Italy the lands that it had been promised before the war.

The Treaty of Versailles was a peace treaty that put an end to World War I. It was led by the Big Three, the winners of the war: David Loyd George from the UK, George Clemenceau from France, and Woodrow Wilson from the US.

Italy’s reaction to the decisions accorded in this treaty was very negative, mainly because the Big Three rejected to give to Italy what was its main goal during the war and that cost thousands of Italian lives: to recover the Dalmatian coast and Fiume.

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.

Answer:

The correct answer is C. The event in the Soviet Union that involved the arrest of millions of Communist Party members, military officers, clergy, and intellectuals was the Great Purge.

Explanation:

The Great Purge was the name given to the series of campaigns of repression and political persecution carried out in the Soviet Union at the end of the 1930s. Hundreds of thousands of members of the Soviet Communist Party, socialists, anarchists and political opponents were persecuted or watched by the police; In addition, public trials were held, hundreds of thousands were sent to Gulag concentration camps and others were executed.

The Great Purge was crucial to consolidate Iosif Stalin’s power. Although the Soviets later justified this bloody measure, arguing that the path of “saboteurs” or dissident elements for the future war with Nazi Germany was cleared, a large number of the victims were members of the Communist Party and leaders of the Armed Forces. The vast majority of these arrests were carried out by the Soviet secret police.

Why did the western powers choose a policy of appeasement during the 1930s?

[ad_1]

Something quick I just wrote down, you can use it as a draft or something. I don’t know it it is all completely accurate, it’s just from memory. :/

After the fall of Rome, Western Europe went through issues involving the law, churches, and royalty/leaders. The churches were pretty much in charge of everything, if someone wanted to own land or decide on something, they would go to the priest. There were also the nobles, who were pretty much above the law due to their status, the nobles (lords and ladies) would own large areas of land and higher peasants/commoners to do their work. Peasants would get paid little and would work for hours in a day. In 1219, the last of the Christian cities fell under Muslim rule after a war for the Holy Land. Many centuries later, Henry II took the throne, when he died in a crusade his brother, Richard took over. Then the Magana Carta came into play, and the king couldn’t just do anything he wanted. The Churches were able to choose their own bishops, the great nobles had right, and wouldn’t be asked to pay more taxes to the king. Before the Magna Carta laws were everywhere, and couldn’t be different for every city/town.
