Big bang passage

i think it was the 3 or 4th question..big bang theory gouges something from hubble

Big bang says universe expand. Hubble says object move away directly prop to distance. Therefore the Hubble kinda supports big bang but not conclusively.

1st Passage (controlling electronic info, or something like that)
 6 questions? (not in order nor necessarily right)

1) word in papr describing author opin. about gov't control --draconian
2) Main purpose-
3) Why mention info concerning France for info. from Jap to Germany
4) What is defined as sovereignity--gov't control of entities in a geo. space. (saw that in passage)
5)



1)I didn't choose draconian although I was stuck between it and the other attractive answer.. which I think it was unacceptable? i dont recall
2)
3) France was mentioned because it crossed jurisdiction
4)agreed

Okay I totally blanked on the Hubble's Law and groupthink passages.  Could we go over some of those?

Also, the one about the doctor whose patient's info got leaked to the newspaper, what was the assumption?  THANKSSSSS

I said assumption was that the newspaper had gotten the information through the doctor, or something along those lines.

Agreed.

What was the one about no telekinesis has ever been replicated, and something about warranting research and scientists being interested?

I think I chose the only one that mentioned replication and warranting research or something.

Agreed.

I also put unpopular, but those were my two choices.  I thought the question asked what word described how the author felt about the results of a government restriction...and it said in the passage that it would be decidedly unpopular with the public?
