In JFK's inaugural address, he asked that countries began anew the peace process and come together to study how to make better nuclear weapons True or False 0.0

  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.

Compare the positive and negative effects of climate on pre-historic people. Make sure to give examples of how it altered their lifestyles. How does climate still affect modern man?

Answer:

Pre-historic people lived during the Last Glacial period, which started around 110.000 years ago and ended in 10.000 BCE. This period was characterized by the advance and retreat of glaciers around the world. For instance the Artic  ice cap was formed around 11.000 BCE and this allowed the first people from Asia to cross the Bering Strait to America.

Although glaciers made their life hard, at the same time they provided an exitway to get into a new territory. This new land offered options for hunting,  to plant and crop.

The middle colonies included New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey and Delaware. Southern colonies consisted of Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, North and South Carolina.

In southern colonies, the dominant crops were corn, grains, and fruits. Tobacco and Cotton were their major export items, for which slave labor was utilized. In the Middle colonies market, towns and villages were established to sell the goods and food items, while in the southern plantations was established, helping the southerners to grow crops for the international market. Agriculture was dominant in both colonies but in middle colonies, the land was used for producing food and mining.

Religious differences were also present between the two. Quakers dominated the middle colonies and the church of England was dominant in these colonies, while in southern colonies Religion wasn't too important in southern culture. so, people were given more religious freedom.

Use the following excerpt from Boccaccio's The Decameron to answer the following question: In the year of our Lord 1348, there happened at Florence, the finest city in all Italy a most terrible plague; which, whether owing to the influence of the planets, or that it was sent from God as a just punishment for our sins, had broken out some years before in the Levant (Middle East) and, after passing from place to place, and making incredible havoc all the way, had now reached the west [The plague] occasioned various fears and devices amongst those who survived, all tending to the same uncharitable and cruel end; which was, to avoid the sick and everything that had been near them, expecting by that means to save themselves. Some [held] it best to live temperately and to avoid excesses of all kindsandthey shut themselves up from the rest of the worldOthers maintained free living to be a better preservative and would balk no passion or appetite they wished to gratify, drinking and reveling incessantly from tavern to tavernyet strenuously avoiding, with all this brutal indulgence, to come near the infected.- Public Domain How does Boccaccio let you know that he recognized that the plague spread widely from one location to another? (5 points) a. He states that it was caused by rats. b. He states that it caused reckless behavior. c. He states that it spread from the Middle East. d. He states that people did not avoid the sick. 6. Use the following excerpt from Boccaccio's The Decameron to answer the following question: In the year of our Lord 1348, there happened at Florence, the finest city in all Italy a most terrible plague; which, whether owing to the influence of the planets, or that it was sent from God as a just punishment for our sins, had broken out some years before in the Levant (Middle East) and, after passing from place to place, and making incredible havoc all the way, had now reached the west… [The plague] occasioned various fears and devices amongst those who survived, all tending to the same uncharitable and cruel end; which was, to avoid the sick and everything that had been near them, expecting by that means to save themselves. Some [held] it best to live temperately and to avoid excesses of all kinds…and…they shut themselves up from the rest of the world…Others maintained free living to be a better preservative and would balk no passion or appetite they wished to gratify, drinking and reveling incessantly from tavern to tavern…yet strenuously avoiding, with all this brutal indulgence, to come near the infected.- Public Domain Based on the passage, how would Boccaccio likely feel about the actions of the flagellants, who warned Christians to repent? (5 points) a. He would find their actions sinful because they accused God. b. He would find their actions appropriate because the Church was corrupt. c. He would find their actions appropriate because he believed human sin may have caused the plague. d. He would find their actions inappropriate because he was certain the planets caused the plague.

1. c. He states that it spread from the Middle East.

Boccaccio states that the plague "had broken out some years before in the Levant (Middle East) and, after passing from place to place, and making incredible havoc all the way, had now reached the west." This shows that he is aware of the plague's origin and of the way it followed to get to the west. However, there is no indication that he knows by what mechanism it travelled.

2. c. He would find their actions appropriate because he believed human sin may have caused the plague.

Boccaccio does not actually state that he believes the plague was caused by human sin. However, he does think that is a possible explanation (another one would be the influence of the planets). Therefore, it is likely he would have judged the flagellants as prudent and appropriate.
