It was primarily the "Reconstruction Act" that forced states to accept the Fourteenth Amendment in order to join the Union, since this led to a military oversight of the Southern states immediately after the Civil War.

The gabelle , the taille , and the tithe are example of the old regimes.. A:censorship of printed materials B:unequal system of taxation C:lack of religious freedom D:unfair system of justice

B. unequal system of taxation.

The gabelle, the taille and the tithe are examples of the unequal system of taxation in France under the Old Regime.  The gabelle was a tax on salt, the taille a tax on incomes, and the tithe a tax paid to the Catholic Church.  These taxes were paid by members of the Third Estate (the common people).  The First and Second Estates (clergy and nobility) were exempt from most taxes, thereby placing an unfair burden of taxation on the Third Estate.

To pay reparations after world war 1, Germany? A. asked the United States to repay debts to Germany. B. printed more money. C. raised taxes on its residents. D. raised prices for its food and goods

B. Printed more money.

When the war was over, Germany was submerged in large debts and high inflation, not only due to the costs of the war itself but also for the reparations it now had to pay to the winning side. To pay for the war reparations, Germany decided to massively print money to buy foreign currency. This rapidly devalued its currency and the economy reached hyperinflation levels. By 1922, Germany was already unable to make reparations payments and the payment plan and method had to be reconsidered several times during the following decades.

Answer:

C) a shift away from the government making very specific rules with regard to communication and a move toward the public regulating and even producing mass media.

The heritage of press inclusion of the war recommends that what goes for objectivity is in actuality authority. What's more, regardless of the calls of predisposition, what goes for promotion is minimal in excess of a stenographic. relativist introduction of debate among the forces that be.

At last the inquiry raised by press inclusion of Vietnam is the effect of this style of illuminating people in general on both the frame and the substance of political talk in the United States.

Why did Pizarro and his force attack the Luca and capture their emperor , atahualpa

Atahualpa, also Atahuallpa, Atabalipa (in Hispanicized spellings) or Atawallpa (Aymara and Quechua)[2][3] (c.1500–26 July 1533) was the last Sapa Inca (sovereign emperor) of the Inca Empire (Tawantinsuyu) before the Spanish conquest. Atahualpa became emperor when he defeated and executed his older half-brother Huáscar in a civil war sparked by the death of their father, Inca Huayna Capac, from an infectious disease (possibly smallpox).[4]

During the Spanish conquest, the Spaniard Francisco Pizarro captured Atahualpa and used him to control the Inca Empire. Eventually, the Spanish executed Atahualpa, effectively ending the empire. Although a succession of several emperors who led the Inca resistance against the invading Spaniards claimed the title of Sapa Inca as rulers of the Neo-Inca State, the empire began to disintegrate after Atahualpa's death.

(B) Odysseus renounces the gods for allowing Polyphemus to eat his guests and not be punished. (C) Odysseus gives his name to Polyphemus, allowing him to pray for Odysseus's downfall. (D) Odysseus is too proud that thank Poseidon with a sacrifice before setting sail.

Answer:

Letter C.

Explanation:

Odysseus first outwits Polyphemus by telling him his name was 'Nobody'. So that after being blinded by Odyseeus and his men while asleep, Polyphemus cried in pain to the other cyclops: 'Nobody blinded me!' - which made them think he has gone mad. This distraction made Odysseus and his remaining crew escape possible, but not before rashly revealing his name. After learning it, Polyphemus prays to Poseidon (his father) for Odysseus' downfall.

This did not cause their ship to wreck yet, but kicked off a sequence of disastrous events that caused his entire crew but him, to fall.

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

Though unemployment during the Great Depression was widespread, it was higher in some parts of the United States than in others. A geographer uses unemployment data points to make a map, while an economic historian arranges data about state-by-state unemployment levels into a table. What information might the geographer be able to convey more clearly than the economic historian? A. The relative sizes of the areas affected by each level of unemployment B. The years when unemployment was worst in each area C. The percentage of each state's population that was unemployed D. The level of unemployment in each state

The correct answer is A. The relative sizes of the areas affected by each level of unemployment

Explanation:

A geographer different from an economic historian focuses on understanding social phenomena in relation to places and other geographical features, instead of focusing on the economy. This implies, in the case of studying unemployment during the Great Depression, the economic historian will focus only in economic aspects while the geographer would try to understand the phenomenon based on places and due to this, the geographer uses a map and might be able to study the areas affected by unemployment different to the historian that only a chart. Thus, the information the geographer might convey more clearly is "the relative sizes of the areas affected by each level of unemployment".

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]

QUESTION POSTED AT 22/01/2020 - 01:59 AM

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.

What was the purpose of the Neutrality Acts Congress passed between 1935 and 1937?

The Neutrality Acts were passed by the United States Congress in the 1930s, in response to the growing turmoil in Europe and Asia that eventually led to World War II. They were spurred by the growth in isolationism and non-interventionism in the US following its costly involvement in World War I, and sought to ensure that the US would not become entangled again in foreign conflicts.The legacy of the Neutrality Acts is widely regarded as having been generally negative: they made no distinction between aggressor and victim, treating both equally as "belligerents"; and they limited the US government's ability to aid Britain and France against Nazi Germany. The acts were largely repealed in 1941, in the face of German submarine attacks on U.S. vessels and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
