Question:

Why does good writing matter?

Inactive
Jesse N.
Answer:

In academia, good writing is essential. Whether a student is writing a paper or attempting to answer a question on an exam, they must be able to convey their ideas clearly, coherently, and succinctly. Using proper grammar and ensuring correct spelling will assist the student in making their argument and enhance their credibility. Making vague statements, using poor grammar and punctuation, and using strange vocabulary is ineffective and makes reading and evaluating a student's work very difficult for the instructor. If a student is able to master the ability to write in the classroom, those skills can be easily transferred into the workplace. Memos, letters, emails, and social media posts demand clear communication skills. Cultivating good writing lays the foundation for effective communication, no matter the medium.

Answer:

The United States federal government is made up of three branches: the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. The legislative branch is divided into two, the House of Representatives and the Senate. Collectively, they are known as Congress. The House of Representatives is made of 435 members and each state's delegation is based on their respective populations. The Senate is made up of two delegates from each state with a total of 50 senators. These bodies are responsible for creating and passing laws. The executive branch is headed by the president and divided into numerous departments, such as the State and Defense Departments. These executive departments are responsible for executing, or carrying out, the laws passed by Congress once the president has signed the legislation. The executive branch is a large bureaucratic network that creates policies and regulations to ensure that the laws that have been passed are effectively carried out. The judicial branch is responsible for reviewing and interpreting the laws that have been passed. However, this responsibility is not automatic and must be brought to the court, typically through litigation. The judicial branch is made up of federal district courts, appellate courts, and the Supreme Court. They have the final decision-making power in declaring if a law is constitutional or unconstitutional.

Question:

What was/is "manifest destiny" and how has it impacted the growth of the United States into the present day?

Answer:

Manifest destiny was a common idea that gained momentum in the mid-nineteenth century that advocated for the expansion of the United State across the North American continent. The idea of territorial expansion became a sort of sacred duty for the government and politicians and became coupled with the desire to spread democracy and liberty. Once the United States stretched from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic, one may argue that manifest destiny played a role in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries when the United States entered various wars and conflicts that allowed it to gain overseas territories, such as the Philippines and Puerto Rico. Gaining these territories allowed the United States to further spread its brand of democracy around the world and further from its shores. After World War II, the United States entered a new era where they attempted to conquer "the last frontier" through its participation in the Space Race. The legacy of manifest destiny has continued into the twenty-first century with the United States attempting to nation build in the Middle East which has resulted in uneven results.
