By showing the citys rules for boating.
The existence of rules for boating indicates that the actions that initiated by both the steersman and the shipwrights are regulated under a national regulation that would trump local regulation. This could be translated to them bringing the state power for the city.

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.

Social Darwinism used the idea of “survival of the fittest” to make a case for a laissez-faire approach to business. Social Darwinists thought the government should not regulate business because only the best should last. Write a brief essay explaining some of the government’s actions around the turn of the century that social Darwinists would not have approved of?

Governments aid the weaker and poorer sections of the society, and social Darwinists would not have approved the same, as they think that only the most efficient should be successful.
They would also disapprove the steps of encouraging small businesses and would have also not liked the trustbusting.

This was important to them since if there was more senators from the free states than slave states, the senators of the free states could get rid of slavery, and that would be crippling to the South's economy, since the slaves' workforce made up a huge part of the South's economy.

In which of the following situations do the federal courts NOT have jurisdiction? A. Citizens of different states B. Laws related to aviation C. The laws, treaties, and Constitution of the United States D. Laws related to the sea or shipping

The correct option is C. The laws, treaties, and Constitution of the United States

One of the characteristic features of the American judicial system is the duality of jurisdictions, understood as not the division into jurisdictional orders by subject, but in terms of the complete organic system. On the one hand, there is federal jurisdiction and, on the other, the different state jurisdictions, which means that in each state unit two different organic systems coexist. The powers of the federal courts reach both civil actions for damages and other concepts, as criminal, subject to federal law. Article III has resulted in a complete set of relationships between state and federal courts. Normally, federal courts do not hear cases that have to do with the laws of a state. However, some cases for which federal courts have jurisdiction may also be followed and decided by state courts.

Statistical probability is not influenced by statistical power. C. As statistical probability increases, statistical power decreases. D. A statistical test having high power also has high probability for finding significant support.

The answer is: D. A statistical test having high power also has high probability for finding significant support.

Statistical power refers to the ikelihood that a certain study can detect a certain effect if the effects exist in the first place.

Statistical probability on the other hand refers to the percentage of chance that the researchers could find that effect.

Both of them are different, but they are strongly correlated with one another. Hire likelihood of detection would also have higher chance of finding.
