Which Statement about the Russian Duma in true? A) It shares equality with the Federation Council. B) It chooses the prime minister from its membership. C) It has the ability to help override a presidential veto. D) It is appointed by the Russian president.

Answer:

5- The correct answer is B. Putinism is characterized by the closing of Russia's society and economy to foreign influences and trade.

6- The correct answer is C. The Russian Duma has the ability to help override a presidential veto.

Explanation:

5- Putin's political system was characterized primarily by the lack of transparency in governance, nepotism and widespread corruption. Between 1999 and the autumn of 2008, the Russian economy grew at a constant rate, that some experts attribute to the strong devaluation of the ruble of 1998, the structural reforms of the Yeltsin era, the price of oil, and cheap credit in Western banks. According to Michael McFaul, "Russia's impressive short-term economic growth" was simultaneously with the "destruction of free media, threats to civil society and absolute corruption of justice".

6- The Russian Duma has the following powers:

-pass federal laws (by majority of deputies) and constitutional laws (a two-thirds majority is required), which must be approved by the Federation Council and signed by the President of Russia.

-nullify the veto of the Council of the Federation to a federal law by a two-thirds majority.

-nullify the veto of the President of Russia to federal laws by a two-thirds majority together with three quarters of the votes of the members of the Federation Council.

-begin the censorship procedure against the President of Russia by a two-thirds majority.

Answer: 5.C) The creation of a one-party state based on economic growth and exporting resources.

6.C) It has the ability to help override a presidential veto.

Explanation:

5. Russia is virtually a one-party state because there´s no significant opposition. The uneven power balance is related to electoral regulations that made it difficult to register parties for the elections and increasingly tough to access the Duma. It´s also due to Putin’s control over media, state resources, and voting control.

6. The only way a President’s veto can be overridden is if the bill is re-adopted by both the Federation Council and the Duma by a 2/3 majority vote of the complete staff of members of both legislative bodies.

Which is NOT a "culture of life" issue? Abortion Adoption Stem Cell Research Euthanasia

The correct answer is B.

'Culture of life' is a belief that human life is sacred at any stage and thus protected. Any stage means from the point of conception till death.

Abortion is considered an act of murder and is totally opposed by followers of the 'culture of life' theory. A human being exists from the very point of conception and nobody has the right to kill it.

Stem cell research is controversial and an issue for'culture of life' as well because during the process many embryos are being destroyed or used for medical trials. The practice of choosing baby's gender is also controversial as it goes against the law of nature. Stem cell research is also used to see if the embryo has an incurable illness, which is seen as an intolerable practice as well as many ill-developed embryos (living human beings) are being destroyed.  

Euthanasia is another issued seen in a very negative life, as nobody has the right to terminate their own life according to the above theory.

Only adoption is not an issue because it does not go against killing human beings.

In 2012, a filmmaker posted a video online about the plight of child soldiers in Africa. It became a "viral video," attracting thousands of watchers around the world. Is this type of activity important in U.S. political and civic life? Explain your response and give at least two additional examples of how a person can participate in a democratic society.

Well, considering the fact that Africa is a Major Non-NATO ally. They have strategic relationships with the U.S army, yet they are not considered a part of NATO. Whilst having an ally with someone, it is our job to allow food, water, protection, and support to each and every allied country. For instance, if they go to war, so does America. I do believe that it is extremely important that we aid our allies, especially since we have made Child-Labor in America illegal.
