PLEASE HELP!! 5. Read the excerpt from the textbook describing the government of Russian leader Vladimir Putin: [Some argue that the ordered society that centralized leadership brought Tsarist ans Soviet era means strong presidents will be favored in Russian governance. Such observers worry that Putin is not a dedicated democrat and is bent instead on what has come to be called 'Putinism'.] Based on the context and what you know about Russia, which of the following definitions best describes Putinism? A) The reforming of the communist party and restoration of communism to Russia. B) The closing of Russia's society and economy to foreign influences and trade. C) The creation of a one-party state based on economic growth and exporting resources D) The expansion of voting rights to more Russians and an increase in the power of local government. 6. 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.

How does gender influence how people of color in the dominican republic are treated?

Machismo is the exaltation of all that is “macho” and is rampant in the Dominican Republic. Interestingly enough, machismo ≠ anti-feminism. As I mentioned above, strides are being made in the direction of improving and protecting the rights of women. Although machismo does not label the woman as inferior, it defines the man as superior. Gender roles in the Dominican Republic designate males as the financial providers and decision-makers, while women are seen as the nurturers and caretakers of the home. (This is still the case, despite the fact that many Dominican women are also employed and help to support their families financially.) Machistas believe that to be macho you have to be as masculine as possible (often interpreted as the opposite of feminine). To quote a male Dominican friend of mine, whose sentiments accurately reflect this culture, “Women are like flowers: beautiful and weak, needing protection.” The context of this quotation? Why women should be housewives instead of working. The argument I have heard repeated is that women’s hearts are “weaker” than men’s; we are too “emotional.” After watching Lucy, another male Dominican friend commented, “That’s why women shouldn’t be allowed to carry weapons,” because they are “too emotional and therefore irrational.”

Describe the role of feudalism and manorialism in medieval England. How did the feudal system work? What role did manors play in the system? What role did most people play?

FEUDALISM AND THE MANORIALISM  During the early part of the Middle Ages, kings were too weak to keep invaders out of their kingdoms. People began to leave towns and cities, banding together in the countryside for protection and survival.  Everyone had a well-defined place in medieval society. People were born into their social positions, and there was little chance of moving beyond them.  The nobility consisted of the kings and queens, greater lords, lesser lords, and knights. The elite class of nobles controlled the land and power.  The lower class of peasants, who made up the bulk of the population, worked the land and served the nobles.  The clergy was highly respected, due to the fact that the Christian Church dominated life during the Middle Ages
