Hunter-gatherers would lead a more spontaneous life, so they would hunt and gather whatever they can. In a way, their life would also be more regular by not being seasonal.
The settlers would have to plan a lot, on a long term and their life would be very closely connected to seasons: they would likely develop culture surrounding seasonal festivities.

According to the history book, Medieval to Early Modern Times (by Holt) please answer the following question: 1b) EXPLAIN How did Chinese culture change during the Period of Disunion? Please answer using pages 166-169. If you want to be REALLY helpful, then if you could do problems 1-4, that would be really kind of you. ;-)

Once the nomadic travelers finally arrived in northern China, a few of the Chinese mixed in with the nomads' culture, while the invaders adopted some Chinese practices. Some of the nomadic leaders ordered their people to use Chinese names, use the Chinese language, and dress like the Chinese. Many northern Chinese were against this new system to live under the rule of the nomadic invaders, and fled to southern China. There, northern Chinese culture mixed with the southern therefore developing a change in their culture altogether during the Period of Disunion.

I hope this helped! :D

Why might workers have been reluctant to hold a strike in the early years of the factory system?

Because they were easily replacable. 

But not only that they were easily replacable, they could have had a geniune fear that striking could lead to physical violence and results in injuries for them. In general however, there weren't as many laws protecting workers at the time, so if they were striking at that time, the factory owner(s) could easily decide to hire new employees which would work under those conditions.

Which of the following best describes how Hammurabi’s Code and the Jewish Ten Commandments are similar? A. They provided consistent codes of law for their societies. B. They established guidelines for building homes. C. They outlined the duties for specific jobs in society. D. They described the best agricultural practices for farmers to use.

The correct answer is A. They provided consistent codes of law for their societies.

Hammurabi's Code is the first legal code known, and the most ancient set of laws documented. It was created in ancient Mesopotamia, written around 1750 BC by the Babylonian king Hammurabi, where he unified the existent codes of the different Babylonian cities. This code is based on the law of the talion or "an eye for an eye." It is also the first example of presumption of innocence in the history of law.

The Ten Commandments are a set of ten laws that, according to the Hebrew belief, was given to the Jewish people by God through the prophet Moses in mount Sinai. It establishes an ethical code of behavior, forbidding some actions, like killing and stealing and boosting other actions, like worshiping God on Saturday.

Both are codes of law that enacted a social order in the societies where they came to be and both were based on religious beliefs.

In 1-2 sentences, compare and contrast the freedom of consumers and producers in free market and command economies.

Answer

Consumers and producers in a free market economy are "free" to produce and consume what ever they want, and demand for products dictates production--whereas in a command economy, producers are told how much to produce by the government.

Explanation

In a free market economy is where the individuals who are the producers, make their own decisions on what products to produce and sell.In this type of market, the government does not intervene. The advantage of this system is that producers have full control to produce products of their choice and they are more multivated to work and produce goods to earn money.This also boosts the economy growth by allowing the total control to the producers who produce goods according to the demand of the market.

Command economy is where the government takes full control of the economic system and it controls the country's economy. It makes all economic decisions and owns all the means of production.
