Industrialization led to rising imperialism because 
1) show of power: As one makes new technology, they would either want to test it out or show the other nations that what they produce is ground-breaking and the best. Usually if it is military technology, you would want to test it out, and with the use of “show of force”, can have people groups submit to your country.
2) Better technology: As technology advances, it usually makes something easier. In the case of imperialism, better military advances meant that they could (once again) have other people submit to you
3) Better transportation: This meant that you could take multiple countries at once, and can prove that you’re country is great by having supplies shipped over long distances to keep your troops up. If in need of more troops, you could send more.

How did the Compromise of 1850 address the question of slavery in Washington, D.C.?

[ad_1]

The correct answer is B. Between 1820 and 1850, most Irish immigrants settled in cities on the East Coast.

After 1840, the majority of Irish Catholic immigrants headed for the big cities or the industrial towns of the East Coast, to cities like Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Baltimore, Detroit or Chicago.

It is estimated that 12% of the total population of the United States of America have Irish ancestry, being Irish Americans the second largest ethnic group of European descent after the German Americans.

In 1793, to solve the controversy around the French Revolution, what did President Washington issue?The Proclamation of NeutralityThe Whiskey TaxThe Monroe DoctrineThe Declaration of Independence

[ad_1]

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. ”

USING SEMICOLONS AND COLONS CORRECTLY Correct the punctuation in the following sentences by re-writing the sentence, adding semicolons and colons where they are needed and by changing other punctuation and capitalization as needed. Example 1. The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. Corrected version: The following items were among those rationed in the United States during World War II: coffee, cars, sugar, and tires. In Washington, D.C., we visited three museums in a single day the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

[ad_1]

Answer:

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

Explanation:

The correct rewriting of the sentence will be –

In Washington D.C., we visited three museums in a single day : the National Portrait Gallery, the Freer Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History.

The use of the comma right after Washington is wrong as it is the name of a single particular place so it should instead be written as Washington D. C.

Also, a semicolon has to be inserted in between day and the. Since the sentence lists a number of places, the use of a colon is necessary to show the list of the places visited.

So, the changes in the sentence are-

(a) remove the comma (,) in between Washington and D.

(b) put a colon (:) right next to the word “day”.

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.

Poland Hungary Bulgaria

In the aftermath of World War II, the influence of the Soviet Union extended through the countries that were invaded by fascists in the Eastern Front, such as Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.

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.

Hungary

In Hungary, the Soviets imposed harsh conditions that seized key raw materials and interfered in the internal affairs and social, policymaking. The Red army set some vigilance with police to persecute political opponents and enemies of the state.

Bulgaria

In September 1944, The Soviets declared war on Bulgary, under the argument that this country allowed its territory where the Wehrmacht (Germany) crossed and continued to press the frontlines eastwards. The Red Army motivated a coup d Etat where communists also set favorable conditions for the creation of a communist regime.

-This countries became to form the Eastern bloc, a period that lasted several decades until the 1989 Revolutions set an important amount of political and social changes in Europe in East and Central Europe, causing most of the socialist states, formerly puppet states to Soviet Russia to collapse and engage in democratic process and incorporate a different economic model.

The basis to respond this question are:

1) Perpedicular lines form a 90° angle between them.

2) The product of the slopes of two any perpendicular lines is – 1.

So, from that basic knowledge you can analyze each option:

a.Lines s and t have slopes that are opposite reciprocals.

TRUE. Tha comes the number 2 basic condition for the perpendicular lines.

slope_1 * slope_2 = – 1 => slope_1 = – 1 / slope_2, which is what opposite reciprocals means.

b.Lines s and t have the same slope.

FALSE. We have already stated the the slopes are opposite reciprocals.

c.The product of the slopes of s and t is equal to -1

TRUE: that is one of the basic statements that you need to know and handle.

d.The lines have the same steepness.

FALSE: the slope is a measure of steepness, so they have different steepness.

e.The lines have different y intercepts.

FALSE: the y intercepts may be equal or different. For example y = x + 2 and y = -x + 2 are perpendicular and both have the same y intercept, 2.

f.The lines never intersect.

FALSE: perpendicular lines always intersept (in a 90° angle).

g.The intersection of s and t forms right angle.

TRUE: right angle = 90°.

h.If the slope of s is 6, the slope of t is -6

FALSE. – 6 is not the opposite reciprocal of 6. The opposite reciprocal of 6 is – 1/6.

So, the right choices are a, c and g.

What was one of the assumptions that led to the agreements reached at the Washington Naval Conference?

[ad_1]

Several multinational companies close their factories in the nation because of its changing economic climate.

A nation PPC in this case would suffer a consistent loss in the first years, due to the impact of the multinational companies not only in their respective sectos but also in the aftermath. However, it depends on the respond of the nation to this event how the PPC would be affected in the long period. If the nation has a robust and efficient welfare state, it is possible to absorbe the loss quickier than in other cases.

A mass e-learning initiative makes education cheaper and accessible across the nation.

In this case the PPC would likely increase, due to the fact that the education makes possible for the people to access jobs that are paid better, thus having more power of purchase, with positive repercussion on all the nation, not only from a PPC point of view, but also in the quality of life and in the overall happiness of the nation.

Government money is illegally taken by increasingly corrupt bureaucrats and politicians.

Corruptions is one of the factor that leads to a loss in the PPC, because much of the economy is hidden from the pubblic, thus it is not affecting the macro-economy of the nation on a statistic base. Corruction however would likely affect the real economy, causing loss of PPC due to lack of jobs, influence on the market and so on.

New economic policies facilitate the signing of new international trade agreements.

International trade agreements usually lead to an increase in the PPT, because exportations and importations are heavily affected by the international trade. Less taxes, open market and open exchange of people are fundamental steps in the making of a productive nation with an high PPC, as it possible to see with examples all over the world.

Answer:

The correct answer is C. The California Gold Rush did not create a serious labor shortage in California but on the contrary, as it generated a massive expansion of labor in that state.

Explanation:

The California Gold Rush was a social phenomenon occurred in the United States between 1847 and 1855, characterized by the large number of immigrants who came to the vicinity of San Francisco in search of the metal. This phenomenon began near the town of Coloma, when gold was discovered in Sutter’s Mill. When the news of the discovery spread, around three hundred thousand people emigrated to California from the rest of the United States and other countries.  

The first gold seekers, called forty-niners, traveled to California by ship on the Cape Horn route or in caravans crossing the continent. At first, gold seekers collected gold in streams and riverbeds using simple techniques such as screening, but later developed more sophisticated methods for extracting gold that were adopted throughout the world. Some of these seekers of fortune became millionaires, but most were left with little more of the goods they had when the Gold Rush began.

The effects of this sudden migration were spectacular. Before the gold rush, San Francisco was a tiny village, and with the fever the village it became a city. Schools, roads and churches were built, and other towns were founded. A legal and governmental system was created, which led to the admission of California as a state of the Union in 1850. New means of transportation, such as the steamboat, entered service in the state, and railway lines were laid. The business of agriculture was also started, the second fastest growing item in California.

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”

I guess this also depends on what the “Advanced Reading Skills” lessons talks about, but don’t think of it as “really hard”! Work on one word, one phrase, one sentence, and you’ll start making progress. =) 

In general, when translating, the first thing you’ll have to do is to understand the paragraph, but you’re right, this isn’t that easy a paragraph to translate. You could use an English dictionary, or a bilingual dictionary (http://www.nciku.comis good for English-Chinese) to help you. While you’re doing this, try to pick out important words and translate them first, and see if you could understand what each sentence means. 

Sometimes, words may have multiple meanings or be used as metaphors – for example, “amputated” means “having been cut off”, but in your 2nd sentence, it means that the poet should not be condemned and criticised to the point where he is treated as having no value. 

Finally, after you’ve translated the text, don’t forget to read it to check if it makes sense in the language you’re using – and if it makes for smooth reading!

“A ship lost at sea for many days suddenly sighted a friendly vessel. From the mast of the unfortunate vessel was seen a signal, “Water, water; we die of thirst!” The answer from the friendly vessel at once came back, “Cast down your bucket where you are.” A second time the signal, “Water, water; send us water!” ran up from the distressed vessel, and was answered, “Cast down your bucket where you are.” And a third and fourth signal for water was answered, “Cast down your bucket where you are.” The captain of the distressed vessel, at last heeding the injunction, cast down his bucket, and it came up full of fresh, sparkling water from the mouth of the Amazon River. To those of my race who depend on bettering their condition in a foreign land or who underestimate the importance of cultivating friendly relations with the Southern white man, who is their next-door neighbor, I would say: “Cast down your bucket where you are”— cast it down in making friends in every manly way of the people of all races by whom we are surrounded.” Booker T.

1. Free trade

2. Competition

3. Domestic

Free trade agreements allow for easy trade between countries and can lower prices, but can create a loss of jobs for one country while the other gains employment.

The US has a free trade agreement with Mexico and Canada called the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Though it has reduced the prices of natural resources and manufactured goods, it has also resulted in jobs leaving the US and moving to Mexico. Increased free trade agreements have been signed but continue to be criticized as hurting the US job market.

The correct answer is – C. socialist ideals.

In the year of 1959, Fidel Castor led a revolution in Cuba against the militaristic leader of the country that was set up by the United States few years earlier, and won. Castro managed to get hold onto the government and became the leader of Cuba. His ideals were much different than those of his predecessors, and Castro was a big fan of the socialist ideology, so he implemented it in Cuba. Because of this he quickly got support by the Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Yugoslavia, and became very friendly with them.

The situation in Cuba was the thing of nightmares for the United States. Not just that they lost their political and economic influence on the nearby island nation, but it became an ally with its biggest enemy, the Soviet Union. In fact, Cuba was extremely important during the Cold War because it served as a military base of the Soviet Union, and the United States were held in constant fear of attack.
