In testing the impact of one, two, and three changes, we locate a critical negative connection between tort change and social insurance costs in states where two restorative tort changes were passed. In particular, we find that the section of two therapeutic tort changes altogether diminished both aggregate premiums and manager commitments to premiums. The outcomes were to a great extent irrelevant for states that passed one and three changes.

Social studies 18/01/2020 10:23 AM answersmine

Mens rea refers to when an individual is completely aware and knowledgeable about the fact that he or she has or is going to engage in activity that is criminal. In other words, men rea refers to when someone intentionally went ahead to commit a crime. Mens rea is an important element in legal cases, since it establishes whether or not a crime was intended by the perpertrator.

Social studies 18/01/2020 10:15 AM answersmine
The correct answer is:  a form of learning that inhibits, not deletes, what is learned

When it comes to the theory of classical conditioning, extinction refers to when a previously learned behavior disappears when reinforcement stops occurring. In this instance, 
when Kathy visits her parents, and does not get burned when someone flushes the toilet while she is in the shower, the reinforcement stops occurring. However, when she returns home and hears the toilet flush while in the shower, Kathy immediately feels a surge of fear. This demonstrates that extinction (due to lack of reinforcement) might inhibit, but does not completely delete learned behavioral responses. 

In the late 1800's, you live on an absolutely fixed income (retirement plan). should you oppose the unlimited coinage of silver?

Social studies 18/01/2020 10:15 AM answersmine

As an individual living on a fixed income I would have been hugely affected in negative way due to my fixed income which would not have increased as opposed to the general inflation in prices and goods.
