It can be, yes, Danny. Even in the Great Lakes it sometimes snows as early as October, but not in most years. It does vary, depending not only on the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic Ocean but the jet streams in the upper atmosphere. Last winter (2013-14) was unusually cold and ...

This isn't my field, either, but what does "regional" mean? If you are unsure, look it up in the dictionary. Then you can answer this question.

On question 5, houses that resemble each other and similar if not identical floor plans is nothing new in the 1990s or 1980s. McMansions are larger than most homes built before. On question 3, think about it. Trendy items will be out of style next week, perhaps only to be worn...

In Word there's a function that does that. It depends on the software program you are using. I'm sure Mac software, Adobe, etc. are all a little different.

Where might you find information about the restoration of the monarchy in France? I'd suggest you use your search engine to look up 19th century France.

Large groups have more power than individuals or small groups just by sheer numbers. There's another way to look at it, too, and that is that large or small groups can fall victim to "group think," where the loudest or most emotionally satisfying answer is taken ...

A further thought: reactionaries are often thought or said to be conservative. Conservatives usually want to maintain the status quo and resist change. Reactionaries are, as the word denotes, reacting to something that has already changed.

I hate to give answers cold. Think about it. When societal change takes place, someone or something leads the way and others follow, sooner or later. Someone does it differently, then others integrate the new ways. True? And once a change is underway and someone wants to turn ...

No, not really. In a way, yes. The president may veto a bill passed by Congress (and the Congress may override the veto and enact the law anyway). The judiciary may effectively nullify a law by declaring it or part of the law in question in violation of the constitution, but ...

Wait a minute. Yes, 13, but 14 is vital. 13 abolished slavery, but 14 said states can't deny citizenship rights to citizens. Both are necessary. In this case, I'd go with 14 based on the language in the question. But 13 and 14 go together.

You're right. The 13th gave freed slaves all rights of citizenship. The 14th applied all national government rights to the states (meaning states couldn't exempt themselves or refuse to recognize rights granted in the U.S. Constitution. So, the 14th made the states ...
