The battle against socialism restored the open deliberation about the part of the gov't in the economy. Individuals likewise believed that the U.S. had neglected to stop the spread of Soviet power. Social moderates put stock in what is normally connected with family qualities and conventions, and try to ensure those qualities through enactment.

The correct answers, which describe events associated with Presidents from the 1950s and 1960s are:

The Great Society was a program and set of domestic policies of the United States in the 1960s. Proposed and put in place by President Lyndon B. Johnson, it was a continuation of Kennedy's New Frontier, some of whose initiatives were deadlocked.

Several projects of the program became a success, such as Medicare, Medicaid and various federal funds for education. Investments in social and welfare areas, guaranteed in the "Great Society," were expanded by presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.

-The Interstate Highway System was created.

The construction of the Interstate Highway System was authorized by the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956.

On January 5, 1957, Eisenhower defined the geopolitical line of the United States, especially with regard to the situation in the Middle East and the Far East, the Eisenhower doctrine, which also provided economic and military support to countries that were threatened by communism.

This answers are partially correct:

The Environmental Protection Agency was created by the Nixon, but it was created in 1970.

Nixon's impeachment ended his Presidency, but this happened in 1974.

The Soviet Union beat the US to this, with the October 4, 1957 orbiting of Sputnik 1, and later beat the US to the first human in space, Yuri Gagarin, on April 12, 1961. The race peaked with the July 20, 1969 US landing of the first humans on the Moon with Apollo 11. The USSR tried but failed manned lunar missions, and eventually cancelled them and concentrated on Earth orbital space stations

Which of these issues came before the Supreme Court in the 1950s and 1960s? the Civil War and slavery Roosevelt’s New Deal segregation and civil rights the Great Depression and homelessness

The correct answer is segregation and civil rights.

An example of this would be the Brown vs. Board of Education case. In this Supreme Court case, the Brown family sued the Topeka Board of Education. This is because this school district had segregated schools, resulting in members of the Brown family having to attend a further away all black school rather than the high school closest to their home.

The Brown family sued and their lawyer, Thurgood Marshall, argued that segregated schools was a clear violation of the 14th amendment. More specifically, the family argued this was a violation of the Equal Protection clause. The Supreme Court agreed with the family, stating that "separate but equal" was inherently unequal. This began the end of segregation in public schools.

Which change occurred during the Renaissance? Islamic mathematicians developed algebra. Scholars revived an interest in classical ideas. Scientists used the astrolabe to map the stars. Greeks made early contributions to geometry

The correct answer is the second one: Scholars revived an interest in classical ideas.

Renaissance was both the last period of the Middle Ages and the first period of Modern Era in Europe. It started in the North of Italy at the end of the 15th century with the creation of the Duomo of the cathedral of Florence, Santa Maria del Fiore, by Filippo Brunelleschi who was inspired by the Ancient Roman Duomo of the Pantheon of Agrippa, in Rome. This inspiration and interest in classical elements were not confined to architecture only, there was a revival of the study of classical Roman and Greek philosophy, arts, literature, mathematics, and science as well. Due to the wealth and prosperity of Northern Italy thanks to commerce, many merchant families welcomed artists, architects, intellectuals, and inventors under patronage and they pushed and expanded this inspiration in classical ideas. These intellectuals called themselves humanists and labeled this cultural movement as "Renaissance," which means "rebirth," referring to the rebirth of Classical culture after the dark times of the Middle Ages.

After 1945, women lost most of the industrial jobs they had performed during the war.

What was different about the revival of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s? the answer should be as a paragraph for each one

The first Ku Klux Klan was a right-wing extremist organization which emerged in the Southern States during the Reconstruction era, from the 1860s decade until the late 1970s. They fought for the purification of the American society, they were white supremacists and conducted attacks against African American leaders and civilian population. They were characterized by wearing white gowns and conical hats, like the man in the image. They acted at a local level but many groups in diverse locations supported the movement.

The second KKK flourished in the early and mid 1920s. It was a more formal organization, with registered members and structures at the state and national levels. They used the power of mass media, to perform marketing activities aiming to mythologize the first KKK. Supremacy was promoted not just over the black population, but they also opposed Jewish and Catholics (as the movement was related mainly to Protestan communitiees). They used the white costume again as a symbol.

Explain the meaning of the “american standard of liv­ ing” during the 1950s.

The "American standard of living" completely transformed during the mind-twentieth century,
specifically the 1950s. It was a decade of reverence for the esteemed economic system of capitalism
after a decade of horrendous war. Coming out of the Second World War, the 1950s symbolized a
new period of ultimate economic expansion, relatively stable costs and prices, and a lowering
unemployment rate- all leading up to a "golden age of capitalism" and an increased "American
standard of living". (Foner 991) This increased standard of living only came through however, due to
increasing wages for the common man and average citizen. Between 1946 and 1960, the nation's
gross product was merely doubled and because of that, this new generation of Americans was finally
better off than their parents and previous ancestors. As Foner points out, "about 60 percent of
Americans enjoyed what the government defined as a middle-class standard of living." (991) In all
facets of life, nutrition, shelter, income, education, and even leisure, the majority of Americans were
better off. Most of these middle-class Americans now had money to spare, or used that money to
enjoy the finer innovations that came along with this new standard, including television, airconditioning,
and even air travel. In the end, not only did the poverty rate in America decrease during
this decade, but also the basic standard of living for the average American was drastically advanced
