The Turkish Empire was founded by Osman I, in 1299, from which the Ottoman origin originated. He united several Turkish tribal groups, and began to expand the empire by conquering Byzantine cities.  At the peak of power, the Turkish Empire under the leadership of Suleiman the Magnificent encompassed today's territories of Turkey, Western Asia, parts of Southeast and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and North Africa. It means not only Greece in Europe, or just Egypt in Africa. The empire was then multilingual, multiethnic, multicultural. In addition to the struggle for territorial expansion, in order to maintain the empire, Ottoman, in response to the growth of Shia Islam, killed hundreds of thousands of Shia throughout the empire. When the Turks banned Shia Islam, Shah Ismail proclaimed an independent Safavid empire in 1521, which, among other things, occupied parts of Turkey, which caused the fighting, and the persecution of the Ottomans who had fled to the Safavid army, thus strengthening the Safavid empire.

The correct answers are: b. and c.

How did the technological and cultural influences of Egypt affect the formation of Nubia

Answer:

Egypt influenced Nubia because the Nubians saw all the good the Egyptians had and they adopted it to improve their lives and become a better empire.

Explanation:

First of all, let’s picture Egypt as a cultural and technologic provider and producer. Then let’s understand Nubia and Egypt were neighboring countries. Now, let’s comprehend that they were two big powers close to the other and that these two empires represented progress and domination in the territory. They had different periods of peace and war. Thus, they dominated the other and were dominated by the other. According to this analogy, both were extremely related. So much that some pharaohs were from the Nubian origin. However, Egypt was the biggest cultural and technological advancement provider. Nubia didn’t produce so much advancement and considering they lived so much interaction the Nubians saw that the Egyptian culture was better than theirs and they adopted it to have a better life. Even if they were conquered or governed by the Egyptians, they understood their advancements were better and started to use their technology, geroglyphs and also they adopted the Egyptian gods to add them to theirs.

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

QUESTION POSTED AT 22/01/2020 - 02:04 AM

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".
