1.)The Council of Trent consisted of Catholic priests who met between 1545 and 1563 for what purpose? A) to plan what would become the First Crusade Eliminate B) to propose ways to convert Native Americans C) to kick King Henry VIII of England out of the Catholic Church D) to address the issues involving the growing Protestant movement 2.)While many commoners in England initially opposed Henry VIII, they supported him when he dissolved the Catholic Monasteries. Like commoners throughout Northern Europe, many were angry with the Catholic Church for what reason? A) They objected to clergymen who lived lavishly. Eliminate B) They were Calvinists who believed in predestination. C) They were Separatists who wanted to leave the Church. D) They were Puritans who believed that the Church was too fancy and elegant.

Answer #1 - D) To address the issues involving the Protestant movement.

Answer #2 - A) They objected to clergymen who lived lavishly.

Some additional notes:

In regard to question #2, I've seen some people answer this question with item D, saying commoners supported Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries because they were Puritans.  That is incorrect, however, because the Puritan movement did not begin until later, under the reign of Elizabeth.

Regarding question #1, the Council of Trent, held over a span of years from 1545 to 1563,  served to reform some abuses that were acknowledged by the Catholic Church.  Mostly, though, the Council aimed to assert the full authority of Roman power and doctrine over the Protestant threat.

What are the components of the new scientific establishment? explain their benefits and shortcomings.?

For the answer to the question above, In the dimensions of its financial support and in the breadth of its influence, science has indeed become a national Establishment. Politicians are more likely to abuse it by calling on it to advance their special causes than they are to ignore it. In this predicament, scientists cannot protect their essential interests in government by setting themselves apart in a separate status or separate department. They used to be content with the control of particular bureaus or programs. Today, in the White House Office or the lobbies of the Capitol, they are obliged, by the nature of the system they helped create, to play a responsible role in all aspects of national policy, and in the development of a new pattern of relationships between public and private institutions in our society.

Explain how jews were treated during the roman empire

They WOULD HAVE been treated with the same consideration as others, but inevitably their treatment was harsh, simply because they refused to accept Roman rule for long, and kept rebelling. Around the year 66, Agrippa, nominally king of the jews, delivered a great speech warning the Jews and pleading with them not to start an insurrection. Among other things, he pointed out that if they rebelled, their holy city and Temple might be destroyed, since by "sparing these things up till now, the Romans have received no thanks at all."
Roman suppression of the various jewish revolts was often brutal, and led to great loss of life. Many rebels were killed in action or crucified during the various insurrections between 64 BCE and 135 CE, when the last one was put down. Ignoring agrippa proved very costly, since jerusalem and its temple were indeed destroyed. During Trajan's time, many rebels in the diaspora were killed, in cyprus etc. The crushing of the bar kochba revolt of 132-135 is said to have cost half a million jewish lives. Moreover, for nearly a century after 135, jews couldn't even live in jerusalem.
Besides the repercussions of rebellion, jews were penalized for not worshipping the deified caesars. There was a special tax, the fiscus judaicus, levied on them alone.

Explain the four basic causes of the Civil War in an essay of 200 words.

The main reasons for the secession of the Southern from the Union were states' rights, unfair taxation and slavery. In general, the states that seceded felt that the laws of the Union were unfair.

Abolitionist groups in the North succeeded in swaying popular opinion in favor of abolishing slavery, and many Northern states outlawed the practice. Business interests in the South, particularly agriculture, remained in favor of slavery because it was advantageous to the economy of the region. The Southern states were concerned about legal provisions that outlawed slavery in newly formed states admitted into the Union. Slavery was the most prominent issue in the Civil War, but it was not the only source of the conflict. Southern states believed they deserved more sovereignty and wanted to be able to nullify federal laws. Southerners were also upset about taxation laws that were disproportionately beneficial to the Northern states. A belief in Southern nationalism also played a role for citizens with no economic stake in defending slavery. These Southerners sided with the Confederacy, even though they did not own slaves. Abraham Lincoln's presidential election was also a direct trigger for secession. Seven Southern slave states formed the Confederate States of America before Lincoln was inaugurated.

WILL GIVE BRAINLIEST ANSWER AND THANK YOU!!! In some countries, every young person must serve two years in some form of military service. The United States Congress has, from time to time, considered a similar policy for our country. Write an paragraph stating your position on this issue and supporting it with convincing reasons. Be sure to explain your reasons in detail.

I believe that the United States has one of the strongest military forces there is because the people who join are not forced to join, but willing. Not every person has the physical shape, nor the mental sturdiness to endure the military. One thing that the United States does very well throughout the work force is specialization. The reason it is so efficient is the fact that people learn certain skills and gain experience to further their skills in that area and eventually can be considered experts. Forcing people to take time away from education to be placed in the military unwillingly would not be the smartest idea. Another reason this wouldn't be a good idea is because of the possible dangers of doing this. Just think. Terrorists send a child into America with one mission, grow up until he is old enough to be placed in the military and then learn all of the United States military weaknesses. The military is very thorough when inspecting potential candidates to join. With every person having to join at a certain age, the security would be lessened and more threats could enter easily. I hope that the United States will continue with the plan that has been set already and continue being the world power as it is, without having to rid people of some of their freedoms.

I hope this helped! :))

Imagine that a rent control of $600 a month is imposed for some of the apartments in the city where you choose to live. In 1 or 2 sentences, describe how this would increase your monthly personal income. Now suppose the rent control has also caused a housing shortage, and you cannot find an apartment to live in for $600. In 1 or 2 sentences, explain how this would affect your living conditions.

A rent control apartment is less expensive so you would have to spend less on housing costs and that means you get to keep more of your money.

If rent control causes a shortage of housing, your living standard will decrease; you will have to live somewhere you may not like just because there is not enough apartments available to choose from
