C.  He was a communist dictator in a country just 90 miles from the United States.


Fidel Castro was a lawyer, military, politician and revolutionary Cuban Marxist. He was president of his country as prime minister (1959-1976) and president (1976-2008) after his victory in the Cuban revolution against the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista.

During his mandate, Cuba became a Marxist-Leninist socialist state, under the leadership of the Communist Party of Cuba, the only legal entity on the island since his arrival in power and nationalizations and expropriations of productive means were carried out with the objective of carrying out a socialist economic policy.

In the international arena, he initially tried to establish good relations with the United States; He then established close ties with the Soviet Union. After a series of expropriations to US owners, the disagreements with the United States led to the economic embargo against Cuba. Since then, his relationship with the superpower has been openly antagonistic, which was confirmed after the failed invasion of the Bay of Pigs in 1961.

Despite the iron-fisted US opposition, Fidel Castro received dozens of national and foreign decorations. Due to its long management and the controversial characteristics of its policies, a controversial and intense debate has been generated between opponents and supporters about its Government: from qualifying it as a dictatorship to considering it the expression of the will of the Cuban people.

A consequence on the horizon in developing countries with rapid population growth is which of the following? Select all correct reponses. -More jobs will be necessary. -Additional schools will be necessary. -Resources are limited and will become more scarce. -With more people competing for resources, there will be more poverty. -Now is the time to prepare by slowing population growth.

The first four items are correct.

Population growth has been a challenge for governments in developing countries as they need to include an increasing number of people in productive activities and basic care services.

In this context, a greater number of children will require more places in schools and a larger number of young people entering the labor market will require the opening of new jobs. In addition, natural resources are scarce, so it is necessary to rationalize their use so that the entire population is served, otherwise poverty in these countries may increase.

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.
