  It´s false.

  The inaugural ceremony is a defining moment in a president´s career and John F. Kennedy knew this as he prepared for his own inaugural on January 20th of 1961. He wanted his addres to be short and clear; devoid of any partisan rethoric and focused on foreign policy.

  Inmediatly after reciting the oath of office, the President turned to adrresed the crowd gathered at the Capitol. His was the first delivered to a televised audience in color and it´s considered one of the best presidential inaugural speeches in American history.

  He began constructing the speech in November of 1960 with friends and advisers who submitted ideas but himself prepared the whole speech. Every sentence was worked, reworked and reduced according to his helpers. It was a piece of oratory that a generational change in the White House and called on the nation to combat " Tyranny, poverty, disease and war itslef."

  I will copy a quotation of the most famous part of the speech that summon it up some of the ideas expressed above:

  "Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans—born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage—and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

   And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country."

  He assumed as president at the height of the Cold War and he highlighted the newly discovered dangers of nuclear power and the accelerating arms race. One of the main ideas of the speech was that the countries focus on pure firepowershould be replaced with a focus on maintenance of international relations and helping the impoverished in the world.

  What we can deduce from the information given above is that JFK did the opposite of what the proposition tells so this is why it is a FALSE proposition.

  Hope this help you. Regards.

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.

Because we use this to help us stay on track with the money system.....

What is true about map projections?

Answer:

A map projection is a system of graphic representation that establishes an orderly relationship between the points of the Earth's curved surface and those of a flat surface (map). These points are located using a network of meridians and parallels, in the form of a mesh. The only way to avoid distortions of this projection would be to use a spherical map.

In a projected coordinate system, points are identified by Cartesian coordinates (x and y) in a mesh whose origin depends on the cases. These types of coordinates are obtained mathematically from the geographical coordinates (longitude and latitude), which are not projected.

Flat representations of the earth's sphere are called maps, and those in charge of developing them or cartography specialists are called cartographers.

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.
