1.As nations in Africa gained independence from colonial powers, some made relatively smooth transitions to self-rule while others experienced violence and upheaval. In some nations, the violence continues even today. What might have been done to help those nations transition to self-rule peacefully? Write a short essay that sets forth ideas on ways that violence and civil war might have been prevented.

I think, it's really hard to diminish the violent behavior in the current generation. The only way for African people to prevent violence and civil war is to create a strong law enforcement within the government and impose heavy punishment to the violent groups. Then, they should start to improve the quality of education to develop the young minds of Africa so they became a better generation than their previous one.

Hope this helps

8. What was one effect of the Watergate scandal on the nation? A. Most people developed a deeper understanding of the powers of the executive branch. B. Most people began to appreciate the need to vote carefully in every election. C. People questioned the workings of the court system. D. People became more skeptical about politics and less trusting of government.

Answer:

D. People became more skeptical about politics and less trusting of government.

Explanation:

Although Richard Nixon had several achievements during his term, he is, perhaps, best remembered for being accused of being involved in the Watergate Scandal. Such event was the scandal resulting from the arrest of five burglars in the office of the Democratic National Committee in June 1972 that were connected to President Nixon’s reelection campaign. The burglars had been caught wiretapping phones and stealing documents.

Afterward, the President came to be in trouble with justice for trying to cover the crime and the documents, so, in order to avoid impeachment, he soon decided to resign from office. These events, which were clear proof of the government's corruption, increased American's skepticism about politics and the government.

QUESTION POSTED AT 18/01/2020 - 06:48 AM

Which statement describing the Watergate scandal is not correct? A. Nixon used government agencies in illegal ways against people he considered his enemies. B. The press refused to cover the scandal out of respect for President Nixon. C. Nixon tried to cover up the crimes committed by people in his administration. D. Facing impeachment, President Nixon chose to resign from office.

The answer that is NOT correct:  B. The press refused to cover the scandal out of respect for President Nixon.

Context/detail:

"Watergate" refers to efforts by persons working for President Nixon's reelection campaign to spy on their opponents at Democratic party headquarters, and subsequent efforts to cover up those crimes.

The first break-in attempt by burglars working on Nixon's behalf occurred  in May, 1972, as persons connected to the Nixon reelection campaign broke into the Democratic National Committee office in the Watergate complex of buildings in Washington, DC.  They were planting wire-taps on the Democrats' phone lines, and also stole copies of documents.  When the wire-taps didn't work properly, they broke in again (in June) to try to fix the surveillance devices, but they were caught.

The formation of the "plumbers" actually preceded Watergate.  They were a "special investigations" unit that the Nixon White House had set up in 1971 to stop the leaking of classified information.  Members of this group were those then later involved in the Watergate break-in (among other activities).

An insider at the FBI who remained anonymous at the time, known only as "Deep Throat," began to give information concerning Watergate to reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post. The Watergate scandal was not kept out of the press; indeed, it was the persistent investigative reporting by Woodward and Bernstein that brought the scandal to light and forced Congressional hearings.   (Note:  Years later it was revealed that Deep Throat was Mark Felt, who at the time was Associate Director of the FBI.)

Nixon's role in Watergate was especially in his efforts and those of members of his staff to cover up what had happened.  Ultimately, the Watergate affair brought down the Nixon presidency.  He resigned in order to avoid impeachment.  And the whole affair made Americans more distrusting of government.
