Divided government in the United States From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigation Jump to search In the United States, divided government describes a situation in which one party controls the executive branch while another party controls one or both houses of the legislative branch. Divided government is seen by different groups as a benefit or as an undesirable product of the model of governance used in the U. Under said model, known as the separation of powersthe state is divided into different branches. Each branch has separate and independent powers and areas of responsibility so that the powers of one branch are not in conflict with the powers associated with the others.
Edit Due to the brutality of their surroundings, natural selection has played a significant role in the evolution of the krogan. Unlike most sentient species, krogan eyes are wide-set - on Earththis is common among prey animals, and in this case it gives the krogan degree vision, giving them greater visual acuity and awareness of approaching predators.
Krogan eyes have narrow pupils. Their irises may be red, green, amber, or blue in color. Prior to the genophagekrogan could reproduce and mature at an astonishing rate. Females are known to produce clutches of up to 1, fertilized eggs over the course of a year.
In present conditions, according to EDIthe odds of a krogan successfully giving birth to two females stand at 1 in 2, though krogan biology is slowly adapting to the virus. Their large shoulder humps store fluids and nutrients, enabling them to survive extended periods without food or water.
A bigger shoulder hump is seen as a sign of high status, showing how successful an individual krogan is at hunting. Their thick hides are virtually impervious to cuts, scrapes or contusions, and they are highly resistant to environmental hazardsincluding toxins, radiation, and extreme heat and cold.
Consequently their diets can include food and drink which would prove very dangerous to other species—a fact reflected in the krogan liquor of choice, ryncolwhich is said to "hit aliens like ground glass". Younger krogan have yellow or green markings on their hides.
These markings darken to brown or tan over time, showing their age. Younger krogan tend to have looser plates on their head with soft spots in between.
When they grow older the plates grow together to form one whole. Krogan typically stand over 7 feet. Heavy creatures, krogan have been known to weigh at least kilosupwards of nearly kilos for above-average specimens.
Biotic individuals are rare, though those who do possess the talent typically have strong abilities. The most amazing physiological feature of krogan biology is the multiple instances of major organs.
These secondary and where applicable, tertiary systems are capable of serving as back-ups in the event of damage to the primary biological structures. They have, for example, two hearts, four lungs, and four testicles.
This reflects in their slang, where they often speak about a "quad" where a human would use the words "balls" or "pair". Krogan also have a secondary nervous system using a neuroconductive fluid, meaning they are almost impossible to paralyze.
Krogan bleed a yellow or orange fluid when shot, which may be this fluid or actual blood. Aside from redundant systems, the legendary krogan " blood rage " adds to the race's reputation for being notoriously difficult to kill or incapacitate in normal combat scenarios.
In this state, krogan become totally unresponsive to pain and will fight to the death regardless of injury level, with the side effect of reducing their capacity for logic and self-control. Sheer physical hardiness means an individual krogan can expect to live for centuries.
Krogan can live for well over a thousand years, as evidenced by Warlord Okeera veteran of the Krogan Rebellions who died of decidedly unnatural causes well over a thousand years after the Rebellions ended.
Nakmor Drack is another example of their long life-spans, a 1,year-old veteran of the Krogan Rebellions who joined the Andromeda Initiative to voyage to the Heleus Cluster.
Despite their natural propensity for toughness, krogan do have physical weaknesses. According to Zaeed Massaniif one lodges a knife at a certain spot near the frontal plate on a krogan's head, the plate can be ripped off. It is apparently the one thing krogan do fear.
History Edit Ancient krogan society was once rich with cultural, architectural, and artistic accomplishments. However, the krogan birth rate exploded despite the natural limits of their predatory homeworld once they achieved industrialization.
Technology made life "too easy" for them, so when they looked for new challenges they found those in each other. Wars were fought over dwindling resources as the krogan expanded. Four thousand years ago, at the dawn of the krogan nuclear age, battles to claim the small pockets of territory capable of sustaining life escalated into full scale global war.
Weapons of mass destruction were unleashed, transforming Tuchanka into a radioactive wasteland. The krogan were reduced to primitive warring clans struggling to survive a nuclear winter of their own creation, a state that continued until they were discovered by the salarians two thousand years later.The quarians severely underestimated the power and sophistication of the geth's neural network.
The geth reacted to defend themselves, and the resulting confrontation erupted into a planetwide initiativeblog.comns of quarians died, and the survivors were eventually driven from their homeworld.
Since the s, the topic of divided government has been among the most prominent topics explored by scholars of American political institutions. Divided government means that different parties control the legislative and executive branches of the American national government.
When Japan surrendered to the Allies at the close of World War II, it brought along several other related incidences; one which was not related, and was not seen to come, was the division of Korea in to North Korea (the democrat people’s republic of Korea) and South Korea (the republic of Korea).
