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.

Which of the following gives the best analysis of medieval society? a. The era was dominated by the Churches roles in the political world. b. The generation was impacted by the middle class, which became an important part of the feudal system. c. Christianity, chivalry, and the power-struggle between Popes and kings marked the era. d. Literature developed that was mostly Christian in nature.


c. Christianity, chivalry, and the power-struggle between Popes and kings marked the era.


Medieval society was for centuries a basically rural society. In the Middle Ages ninety percent of the population lived in the countryside, center of all activity and daily life for the inhabitants of that time.

In the first medieval centuries, peasants organized themselves around their own lands and other common lands, such as forests, which they shared with their neighbors. In small groups, they imposed their laws and justice, organized the harvests and the resources that they obtained from them.

Little by little, these communities were absorbed by lords, lay or religious, to whom those lands had been given. Thus begins what we have today called feudal system or feudalism, establishing itself as a mode of social organization.

The society was divided into estates: at the base we found the peasants, free or serfs, who assumed the immense majority of the population; in the intermediate ranks are the military and the nobles, lay or ecclesiastical. Not all had the same category but the status within these two groups varied. We end up on the cusp with royalty, that is, the king and his family.

A.the seizure of American cargo vessels by the French B.the violation of neutrality in exporting by Great Britain C.the embargo against Great Britain due to “impressments” of American sailors D.an attempt to increase protection money from American ships by Tripoli E.an attempt to secure greater protection against British invasion


The correct answer is D. The reason for the Barbary War was an attempt to increase protection money from American ships by Tripoli.


The First Barbary War was a naval war between the United States and the states of North Africa known as the Barbary States. These were the independent Sultanate of Morocco, and the three Regencies of Algeria, Tunisia and Tripoli, which were quasi-independent entities nominally belonging to the Ottoman Empire.

The main motivation of the war by the United States was to put an end to Barbary piracy without having to pay the taxes that the Barbary States demanded to guarantee immunity against pirate attacks.

This war would end with the taking of Derna by US forces, which would trigger the start of negotiations for the release of hostages and the end of the war.
