He attacked on Christmas. Puritans in the New World did not celebrate Christmas, but the Hessians (German mercenaries used by the British) certainly did. So the Americans launched a surprise attack on the Germans who were...ahem...celebrating, to put it mildly

A farmer has some problems with the quality of his soil. The soil seems to have lost some of the nutrients that help crops grow. Now the farmer is unable to grow crops on his field. What should the farmer do to ensure that the nutrients in the soil are replenished?

Answer:

Plants use soil nutrients in their metabolic processes, but these nutrients are not eternal, so as the plant consumes nutrients from the soil, the stock of these nutrients will decrease, so it is necessary to let the soil "rest" for a while, so you can restore nutrient levels.

One way to do this is to use the agricultural technique called "Landing," which is the method of planting that divides the land into three parts: two cultivated parts and one at rest. The rest part remains without planting for the recovery of its nutrients for about a season. Then there is a relay between the areas.

PLESE JUST ANSWER ME ALREADY I HOVE USED OVER 40 POINTS ASKING THIS QUESTION MULTIPLE TIMES I JUST WANT AN ANSWER! please all I need you to do is describe Victorian era food and what it was like in those times please make it as long as possible

1: Rich and Poor Children had vastly different lifestyles when it came to food. The rich children would dine on significant amounts of food and waste food too whereas the poor would have limited meals of low quality. A large quantity of the population were living on dripping, bread, tea and vegetables. Certainly not the greatest diet!

2: Street vendors within the Victorian times would sell a number of ‘different’ foods including Rice milk, Ginger beer and Sheeps trotters. Never a dull moment within the Victorian times!

3: The diet for those Victorians who were very poor was terrible. Potato pairings & rotten vegetables were sometimes the dish of the day and for children born into this background this was exceptionally difficult for growth.

4: Those from the farming industry tended to eat much better. A diet of meat, vegetables, fresh milk was commonly available and they were available to feed their children the nutrients they needed for growth and development.

5: The level of meat ratio at meal times decreases through the classes. The wealthy Victorian family would have meat daily and cheese and bacon for supper. Where wages begin to decrease meat would only be on the menu 2-3 times a week with a now increased volume of potatoes/vegetables. This would continue to decrease until the lowest rung of the ladder where the poorest would have potatoes as the sole food. The difference in eating habits was substantial.

6: With the start of school for children and industrialisation breakfast was seen as the most important meal of the day. Middle class breakfast was substantial with everyday consisting of bacon, eggs, ham, haddock, coffee, fruits and bread. Think of a modern day hotel breakfast.

7: Poor children had few food luxuries and ate poor food (see above). The rich however would be well fed every morning and would have extra luxuries accessible.

8: The diet within the Victorian era changed dramatically. Children typically ate what they were given by their parents so whatever was on the menu for the adults was available for the children.

9: Children living on farms would have a far better diet than those within the city. Vegetables could be stored all year round in a root cellar whereas in the city you had to consume what was in season.

Here's for the foods portion. I'm getting the second part of your question in just a minute here.

Why were Japanese-Americans sent to internment camps? a. Japanese Americans were commonly referred to as “alien enemies” by many Americans. b. Many Americans feared Japanese spies and attacks from Japanese-Americans. c. Many Americans feared that Japanese-Americans were loyal to Japan, and not to the U.S. d. All of the above reasons are true.

Answer:

The correct answer is D. Japanese-Americans were sent to internment camps because they were commonly referred to as "alien enemies" by many Americans, who feared Japanese spies and attacks from Japanese-Americans, and that Japanese-Americans were loyal to Japan.

Explanation:

The internment camps for Japanese in the United States accommodated some 120,000 people, who were deported under pressure from the federal government, in establishments designed for that purpose in the interior of the country, during 1942 and 1948.

The objective was to move them from their habitual residence, mostly on the West Coast, to facilities built under extreme security measures. The fields were closed with barbed wire fences, guarded by armed guards, and located in places far from any population center. Attempts to leave the camp sometimes resulted in the dejection of the inmates.

A strict constructionist would interpret the Constitution _____. A) with consideration to the change in times B) with consideration to the religious freedoms of people C) exactly as it was written in the text D) specifically with attention to connotations

The correct answer is C. A strict constructionist would interpret the Constitution exactly as it was written in the text.

Strict constructionism refers to a particular way of interpreting the Constitution and the laws of the United States. When used in a legal environment, it means that a judge must interpret the text as written, and not draw any consequence from it. Sometimes it is confused with "originalism," strict constructionism concentrates more on the text and less on the times when it was written. Its opposite, the broad interpretation of the Constitution, infers Congress powers or individual rights that are not expressly recognized in it. Sometimes called judicial activism, this was denounced by the opposition as an attempt by the activist courts to create legislation from the bench, usurping the legislative power.
