I really need help please thank you so much Your teacher needs help! Before beginning the lessons on the U.S. Constitution, he asked his students to write essays on what they already knew. Now he has to correct those essays. Read the first essay and write a corrected version. The first two statements are correct. Fix the rest. You may list the corrections as bullet points. Then write a summary sentence about the Constitution. The U.S. Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787 by the Constitutional Convention meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After ratification by 11 states (only 9 were required), the new United States government began operation in March of 1789. The Constitution establishes five branches of government that include the Congress, the president, the courts, the military, and the postal service. The Congress has two parts: a House of Senators and the Representatives. Each calls for two members and two alternates from each state. The president is responsible for introducing and passing all new laws, but the representatives can veto them. The highest court is called the Court of Special Appeals. The judges serve 10-year terms and are elected. Unlike the judges, the president is appointed by the Congress. The Constitution can be changed by a process called altering it. The first ten alterations to the Constitution are known together as the States’ Rights Acts. Alterations to the Constitution must be approved by half the states. Each branch of the government operates independently of the other. There is no system for separation of powers, which makes the government free of any checks and balances. Judicial review of whether laws are constitutional is possible only when the president asks for it.

Because we use this to help us stay on track with the money system.....

What did President Lincoln really think about racial eguality

Lincoln only abolished slavery as an attempt to preserve the union. once he passed the emancipation proclamation, it made all slaves in the confederate states free, even though he didn't technically have the power to do so. when the CSA (confederate states of america) ignored the emancipation proclamation, it caused GB and France to pull their support from the CSA, ultimately giving lincoln and the union the final advantage it needed to win the war. he only passed it in an attempt to screw the south over, basically. it's not that he wanted to free the slaves, it's that he had to in order to preserve the union.

The significance for communism is that it has caused many wars between the U.S. and other communist countries. The United States doesn't believe in communism, so we are trying to help the people in other countries.

Iron Curtain was where Europe was divided during the Cold War. 

The Cuban Missile Crisis put America in a state of panic. The United States was on the brink of nuclear war.

The Vietnam War was significant because America helped fight against communism in Vietnam. We fought against North Vietnam.

The Taliban gave sanctuary to Osama Bin Laden. 

Septmeber 11, 2001. This day shook the nation. It helped create thousands of jobs, especially in the TSA (Transportation Security Administration).

The war in Afghanistan was fought because of 9/11/01. We fought the  al-Qaeda.

Why did the United States want the Soviet Union to remove its nuclear weapons from Cuba? (1 point) A. It wanted to protect Cuba from communism. B. Cuba is close to the United States border. C. It was protecting nearby countries in Central America. D. The United States did not have any missiles of its own

The problem  was the closeness of Cuba to US. If the Soviet Union had its nuclear weapons so close to the US it could fire them and they'd reach the US before US could react in any way (e.g. by shooting down the plane carrying it). Generally countries feel very uneasy about nuclear weapons controlled by an enemy (or potential enemy) so close to their borders.

The President of the United States has just appointed you, a conservation Biologist, to work on a nation-wide plan to limit biodiversity loss. In this plan, you need to first explain why biodiversity is so important & then give at least 3 plausible strategies to aid in conservation, including explanations as to how they would be enforced.

Bio-diversity is very important because it maintains the abiotic and biotic relationships within a given ecosystem. Aside from this, it allows for the development and the continuity of the species' evolution. Three plausible strategies to aid in conservation are:

a. Strengthen the laws and regulations that are about conserving wildlife and preserving the environment (i.e. minimizing gas emissions, building sustainable energy)

b. Build conservation centers that would hold wild life and diverse organisms that can be saved or placed under strict observations so that they can reproduce more viable offsprings.

c. The government should allot a separate budget that is big enough to help conservation efforts of scientists working in the field.

How does Nixon’s presidency continue to shape and influence American politics and culture?

He was a president who could philosophically oppose wage and price controls and privately express the conviction that they would not work, while still implementing them for election-year effect. Still his tactical flexibility should not obscure his steadiness of political purpose. He meant to move the country to the right, and he did. Nixon's most celebrated achievments as President- nuclear arms control agreements with the Soviet Union and the diplomatic opening to China- set the stage for the arms reductions pacts and careful diplomacy that brought about the end of the Cold War.
