Ottoman leader Suleiman and Safavid leader Abbas were similar for the following reason(s): A. They were the last great rulers to lead each empire. B. They were able to rekindle the embers of their empires' past greatness. C. both a and b D. none of the above?

The Safavid dynasty (/sɑːˈfɑːwiːd/ Persian: سلسلهٔ صفويان‎‎; Azerbaijani: Səfəvilər sülaləsi, صفويلر سولاله‌سى) was one of the most significant ruling dynasties of Persia (modern Iran) after the fall of the Sasanian Empire during the Muslim conquest of Persia in the 7th century AD, and "is often considered the beginning of modern Persian history".[16] The Safavid shahs ruled over one of the so-called gunpowder empires,[17] and they ruled one of the greatest Persian empires after the Muslim conquest of Persia[18][19][20][21] and established the Twelver school of Shi'a Islam[22] as the official religion of their empire, marking one of the most important turning points in Muslim history.

The Safavid dynasty had its origin in the Safaviyya Sufi order, which was established in the city of Ardabil in the Azerbaijan region. It was of mixed ancestry (Kurdish[23] and Azerbaijani,[24] which included intermarriages with Georgian,[25] Circassian,[26][27] and Pontic Greek[28] dignitaries). From their base in Ardabil, the Safavids established control over parts of Greater Iran and reasserted the Iranian identity of the region,[29] thus becoming the first native dynasty since the Sasanian Empire to establish a unified Iranian state.[30]

The Safavids ruled from 1501 to 1722 (experiencing a brief restoration from 1729 to 1736) and, at their height, they controlled all of modern Iran, Azerbaijan, Bahrain and Armenia, most of Georgia, the North Caucasus, Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan, as well as parts of Turkey, Syria, Pakistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

Despite their demise in 1736, the legacy that they left behind was the revival of Persia as an economic stronghold between East and West, the establishment of an efficient state and bureaucracy based upon "checks and balances", their architectural innovations and their patronage for fine arts. The Safavids have also left their mark down to the present era by spreading Shi'a Islam in Iran, as well as major parts of the Caucasus, Anatolia, and Mesopotamia

The United States and its allies in the fall of 2001 began an effort to defeat terrorists. All of the following were individuals or groups who were the target of that effort, EXCEPT

The War on Terror (WoT), also known as the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT), refers to the international military campaign that started after the September 11 attacks on the United States.[44]

U.S. President George W. Bush first used the term "War on Terror" on 20 September 2001.[44] The Bush administration and the western media have since used the term to argue a global military, political, legal, and conceptual struggle against both organizations designated terrorist and regimes accused of supporting them. It was originally used with a particular focus on countries associated with Islamic terrorism organizations including al-Qaeda and like-minded organizations.

In 2013, President Barack Obama announced that the United States was no longer pursuing a War on Terror, as the military focus should be on specific enemies rather than a tactic. He stated, "We must define our effort not as a boundless 'Global War on Terror', but rather as a series of persistent, targeted efforts to dismantle specific networks of violent extremists that threaten America."[45]

What case allowed states to place reasonable restraints on abortion, ie parental signature?

The Pennsylvania legislature amended its abortion control law in 1988 and 1989. Among the new provisions, the law required informed consent and a 24 hour waiting period prior to the procedure. A minor seeking an abortion required the consent of one parent (the law allows for a judicial bypass procedure). A married woman seeking an abortion had to indicate that she notified her husband of her intention to abort the fetus. These provisions were challenged by several abortion clinics and physicians. A federal appeals court upheld all the provisions except for the husband notification requirement.

In a bitter, 5-to-4 decision, the Court again reaffirmed Roe, but it upheld most of the Pennsylvania provisions. For the first time, the justices imposed a new standard to determine the validity of laws restricting abortions. The new standard asks whether a state abortion regulation has the purpose or effect of imposing an "undue burden," which is defined as a "substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion before the fetus attains viability." Under this standard, the only provision to fail the undue-burden test was the husband notification requirement. The opinion for the Court was unique: It was crafted and authored by three justices.

(01.05 HC)How did Western Europe maintain cultural unity after the fall of the Western Roman Empire? Confederations of Germanic tribes maintained the organization and structure of the empire. The Christian Church gave the various people and tribes in Western Europe a cultural center. Attacks from Muslim nations helped band the various groups together with a common bond. The early kingdoms of Western Europe gave the populace a sense of a European community.

The correct answers are:

- The Christian Church gave the various people and tribes in Western Europe a cultural center;

- Attacks from Muslim nations helped band the various groups together with a common bond;

After the fall of the Western Roman Empire, Western Europe still managed to maintain a high level of cultural unity in the time that followed even though there lot of different people occupying this territory.

The two biggest reasons that this was able to happen were the Christian Church and the Muslim attacks. The Christian Church became the central figure in the politics and religion in Western Europe, and its interest was that there's peace between its followers, so they were trying to maintain that by uniting the people under the same religion, rules, way of life, and resolving the various disputes. The attacks from the Muslim Caliphates were another reasons, as they were seen as a common enemy, so the people were sticking together in order to be stronger, thus strengthening the unity in every sense of the word.

Guilds were about making trades easier. That included trading in Urban Areas, creating rules and obtaining permissions, and so on.

Definitely, fights and revolutions were not their purpose. That being said, it's very unlikely that guilds would be revolting against the lords since they tended to negotiate with them, mostly.

The circle on the right is labeled Byzantine Empire. Inside the left circle says Latin Language. Inside the right circle, it says Christianity and Greek Language. The space within the area where the two circles intersect is blank. © 2012 FLVS Which of the following would correctly go in the intersection of the two circles on the chart? Traditional Roman and Greek art forms Worship of the traditional Roman gods Unification of political and religious authority Rome as the most important cultural center

The correct answer is: Traditional Roman and Greek art forms.

At the end of the 4th century AC, the Roman Empire was going through a deep political and economic crisis. The emperor Theodosius decided to divide the empire in two blocks and distribute them among his two sons. These two portions were the Western Roman Empire, with its capital in Rome, and the Eastern Roman Empire, with its capital in Byzantium, later called Constantinople. The Western Empire was strongly under the influence of the Roman culture and Latin language, while the Eastern Empire was ruled by a Greek elite, it had a strong Greek culture and Greek language was very extended.

What both empires had in common was their traditional art forms and culture. The Roman and Greek civilization were very similar since Roman took many elements from the Greek culture in the fields of religion, philosophy, politics, art, and architecture. These Greek and Roman roots shared by both empires were joined with the Jewish-Christian culture when Christianity was adopted as the official Roman religion, giving place to the cultural basis of the European continent.
