It would be when "A. All of the people make the laws rather than elected representatives," that best describes a direct democracy, since the people are "directly" influencing the trajectory of the state in this case.

In the jewish ten commandments what is the significance of graven images? A.graven images represent false gods B.graven images represents crops C.graven images represent the sun D.graven images represent israelites leaders

The correct answer is C) graven images represent false gods

In the Jewish ten commandments, the significance of graven images is "graven images represent false gods."

When the Ten Commandments refer to the graven images, it is referring to the false idols that should never be worshiped. Hebrew people believed in the existence of just one supreme God, Yahveh. He was the only God to be worshiped. Let's remember the moment in the biblical Old Testament when Moses descended from the mountain and saw the Hebrew people partying and adoring wooden and stone idols and Moses got mad at them for worshiping false idols.

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".

(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.

People looking for farm work during the Great Depression often moved to the Dust Bowl. commercial farms. California. Oklahoma.

Answer:

California.

Explanation:

The phenomenon of the 1930s known as the Dust Bowl was one of the worst ecological disasters of the 20th century. The drought affected the plains and prairies that extend from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada. The drought lasted at least between 1932 and 1939, and was preceded by a long period of above average rainfall. The dust bowl effect was caused by persistent drought conditions, favored by years of soil management practices that left it susceptible to the action of wind forces. The soil, stripped of moisture, was lifted by the wind in great clouds of dust and sand so thick they hid the sun. These days they received the denomination of "black blizzards" or "black wind". The Dust Bowl multiplied the effects of the Great Depression in the region and caused the largest population displacement in a short space of time in the history of the United States. Three million people left their farms during the 1930s, and more than half a million emigrated to other states, especially to the west.

Why did Franklin Roosevelt launch new programs during his first hundred days in office? to strengthen public services and deregulate businesses to encourage businesses to invest in construction to help people immediately and provide them with jobs to help people make more money at their jobs

The correct answer is to help people immediately and provide them with jobs.


The reasoning behind President Franklin D. Roosevelt's actions was the Great Depression. When FDR took office, the US was in the worse economic depression in US history. Nearly 25% of Americans were out of work thanks to different events such as the Stock Market Crash of 1929 and the failure of thousands of businesses. When taking office, FDR knew he needed to act quickly in order to help Americans survive these hard economic times. That is why he created several different federal agencies under his "New Deal" plan. These agencies created hundreds of thousands of jobs over the course of a decade and helped America recover from the economic depression.
