What international politics theories explain neoconservatism (like that of the Bush administration)?
Some of the key components of the Bush administration's neoconservatism were as follows: - They viewed the United States as the sole hegemonic power in the international system. - They did not believe in the balance of power - other powers were simply a threat to American hegemony - so they instead believed that other powers would bandwagon with the United States. - They had a commitment to pre-emptive military force. - They used deterrence as a strategy, but a radical form of it. - The main key was the promotion of democracy. Combined, these main ideas work best with a combination of the liberal and constructivist frameworks in that they combine the liberal ideas of spreading democracy as a way to advance economic and security interests as well as moral values in the world and the constructivist idea that this could be combined with rash military power because it was culturally accepted as the way Americans got things done and that America is seen as a great nation with moral duties.
If a firm's production cost information and demand information is as follows, what is the firm's average cost function? Fixed Cost = 30, Variable Cost = 8Q, Quantity = 40-P
Average Cost = Total Cost/Quantity, and Total Cost = Fixed Cost+Variable Cost, so Total Cost = 30 + 8Q and therefore Average Cost = (30 +8Q)/Q
How do I make my college admissions essay more unique? I feel like I sound the exact same as everyone else.
When it comes to college admissions essays, the chance that the person reading your application has never read anything like it is unlikely. Instead, the trick to make your story as specific and vivid as possible. Describe things in detail: for example, why was your studying abroad for the summer story unique? Name people, describe places, etc. Instead of saying you stayed with a French family, say that you stayed in a tiny village in the French countryside with an incredibly close-knit family where biking to the bakery every morning was just part of the daily routine. Think about all of the things you noticed in that moment and what was unique about it - the smell of cheese, the sound of cows moo-ing in the field behind the house, the breeze blowing through the open window into the rustic kitchen,etc. The trick is that you want the reader to be able to picture the image you have in your head. Remember, you experienced it, they did not. If you make your story rich in detail, not only will they have a more memorable time and be more likely to connect to something, they will most definitely admire your writing.
