England and Spain went to war in the 1560s because Spain demanded a. that the Dutch remain Catholics. b. that the Dutch convert to Protestantism. c. that England pay high taxes on trade. d. control over the English Channel.

Answer: D is correct.

Explanation: At the time the Netherlands was a Spanish territory (Charles V inherited this territory from his ancestors, dukes of Burgundy) which brought quite a lot of money to Spain because Netherlands was the most  prosperous part of Spanish empire. The problem was the protestantism of Dutch, their unwillingness to get converted to Catholicism and obey Spanish Catholic mores and rules. The result of that ? Many rebellions of Dutch, disrespect toward Spanish power. Many Dutch found aid and support in England (in this respect English Chanel was crucial) and over the time there was sort of unwritten alliance between the Dutch and the English. And that was something Spaish crown wanted to stop. At the time Spain (house of Habsburg) was considered the most powerful of European countries.

East germany leader, hoped to restore order in east germany by allowing people to leave,eventually ended communist rule in east germany

In February 1945, with the war in Europe nearly over, Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin met at Yalta—a Soviet resort on the Black Sea—to plan the postwar world. Several agreements reached at Yalta later played an important role in causing the Cold War. A key issue discussed at Yalta was Poland. Shortly after the Germans had invaded Poland in 1939, the Polish government fled to Britain. In 1944, however, Soviet troops drove back the Germans and entered Poland. As they liberated Poland from German control, the Soviets encouraged Polish Communists to set up a new government. As a result, two governments claimed the right to govern Poland: one Communist and one non-Communist. President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill both argued that the Poles should be free to choose their own government. Stalin, however, quickly pointed out that every time invaders had entered Russia from the west, they had come through Poland. Eventually, the three leaders compromised. Roosevelt and Churchill agreed to recognize the Polish government set up by the Soviets. Stalin agreed it would include members of the prewar Polish government, and free elections would be held as soon as possible.

I really need help please thank you so much Your teacher needs help! Before beginning the lessons on the U.S. Constitution, he asked his students to write essays on what they already knew. Now he has to correct those essays. Read the first essay and write a corrected version. The first two statements are correct. Fix the rest. You may list the corrections as bullet points. Then write a summary sentence about the Constitution. The U.S. Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787 by the Constitutional Convention meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After ratification by 11 states (only 9 were required), the new United States government began operation in March of 1789. The Constitution establishes five branches of government that include the Congress, the president, the courts, the military, and the postal service. The Congress has two parts: a House of Senators and the Representatives. Each calls for two members and two alternates from each state. The president is responsible for introducing and passing all new laws, but the representatives can veto them. The highest court is called the Court of Special Appeals. The judges serve 10-year terms and are elected. Unlike the judges, the president is appointed by the Congress. The Constitution can be changed by a process called altering it. The first ten alterations to the Constitution are known together as the States’ Rights Acts. Alterations to the Constitution must be approved by half the states. Each branch of the government operates independently of the other. There is no system for separation of powers, which makes the government free of any checks and balances. Judicial review of whether laws are constitutional is possible only when the president asks for it.

What conclusion about the media can be drawn from these headlines? A. Media coverage of an issue can result in public policy change. B. Social media can influence mainstream media content. C. Media sources often use dramatic language to try to draw readers. D. Media sources focus on different aspects of a story, shaping public opinion.

The fourth alternative is correct (D).

The role of the media in an election is to demonstrate in an unbiased way the ideas of the campaign candidates to voters so that they make their choices based on the convergence of principles and ideas.

However, media production is done by human beings, who have their own perceptions about what is relevant in the electoral context. In addition, the media is segmented, so that it is natural in one debate, one business newspaper to focus on economic issues while another focuses on something that it considers problematic, such as the issue of immigration.

In this way, it is concluded that the media focuses on different aspects of a story and is capable of shaping public opinion. This has a natural character derived from the purpose of the vehicle and human nature, but it can also be purposeful, in order to influence public opinion.

Why did Japan need to rebuild its economy following world war 2

 Japan had already developed to a high level in heavy manufacturing, steel making, ship building, heavy chemicals and vehicle manufacturing prior to WW2 based on a policy of a partnership between business and government with a high degree of government direction and assistance with investment. With the destruction by bombing of much of Japans industrial infrastructure the Japanese took the opportunity to invest in new state of the art manufacturing facilities. As a result Japan spent a higher percentage of its GDP on investment than countries like the US and the UK and Japanese consumers accepted that sacrifices had to be made in the medium term to rebuild the economy and accepted a lower standard of living in the years following the war. A system of training and apprenticeships in industry was also highly developed and the university system had close links to industry to provide the correct level of trained management personnel. The Japanese system of a 'job for life' plus a comprehensive structured system of training and development of managers ensured that knowledge was developed and transmitted in a way superior to that in Western companies. In a large Japanese company a manager will do a 3 year stint in a particular position at home or abroad and receive close training and monitoring by his immediate manager who he will probably take over from. The result of this system is that 3 levels of management have a detailed knowledge of the job etc at any one time. In the West managers move between companies a lot more leading to a loss of accumulated knowledge to that company.
