Read the following excerpt taken from the US Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The case coming on for a hearing before the Supreme Court, that court was of opinion that the law under which the prosecution had was constitutional, and denied the relief prayed for by the petitioner. Ex parte Plessy, 45 La.Ann. 80. Whereupon petitioner prayed for a writ of error from this court, which was allowed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Louisiana. MR. JUSTICE BROWN, after stating the case, delivered the opinion of the court. This case turns upon the constitutionality of an act of the General Assembly of the State of Louisiana, passed in 1890, providing for separate railway carriages for the white and colored races. Acts 1890, No. 111, p. 152. The first section of the statute enacts “that all railway companies carrying passengers in their coaches in this State shall provide equal but separate accommodations for the white and colored races by providing two or more passenger coaches for each passenger train, or by dividing the passenger coaches by a partition so as to secure separate accommodations: Provided, That this section shall not be construed to apply to street railroads.

PLEASE HELP Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary, and yet somehow lovable. At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life. He was austere with himself; drank gin when he was alone, to mortify a taste for vintages; and though he enjoyed the theatre, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years. But he had an approved tolerance for others; sometimes wondering, almost with envy, at the high pressure of spirits involved in their misdeeds; and in any extremity inclined to help rather than to reprove. "I incline to, Cain's heresy*," he used to say. "I let my brother go to the devil in his quaintly 'own way.'" In this character, it was frequently his fortune to be the last reputable acquaintance and the last good influence in the lives of down-going men. And to such as these, so long as they came about his chambers, he never marked a shade of change in his demeanour. No doubt the feat was easy to Mr. Utterson; for he was undemonstrative at the best, and even his friendship seemed to be founded in a similar catholicity of good-nature. It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made from the hands of opportunity; and that was the lawyer's way. His friends were those of his own blood or those whom he had known the longest; his affections, like ivy, were the growth of time, they implied no aptness in the object. Hence, no doubt, the bond that united him to Mr. Richard Enfield, his distant kinsman, the well-known man about town. It was a nut to crack for many, what these two could see in each other, or what subject they could find in common. It was reported by those who encountered them in their Sunday walks, that they said nothing, looked singularly dull, and would hail with obvious relief the appearance of a friend. For all that, the two men put the greatest store by these excursions, counted them the chief jewel of each week, and not only set aside occasions of pleasure, but even resisted the calls of business, that they might enjoy them uninterrupted. *The biblical story of Cain and Abel is a story about two brothers who gave offerings to God. Abel’s offering was accepted by God, but Cain’s was not. Jealous, Cain killed his brother. When God asked Cain where Abel was, Cain said, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” By saying this, Cain implied that what his brother did was his own business. (Genesis 4:1-16) What is significant about “Cain’s heresy” in this passage? A.It shows that Mr. Utterson is a deeply religious and righteous person. B.It shows that Mr. Utterson tries not to judge others or get in their business. C.It shows the Mr. Utterson wants to steal from other people’s businesses. D.It shows that Mr. Utterson does not believe in any kind of religion at all.

Terrorism is based on the mistaken belief that a small number of violent acts that target symbolic and meaningful places and events important to the adversary can enable them to achieve political goals. Secondly, terrorists always underestimate the strong revulsion and disgust that the majority of human beings feels toward acts of political violence. The article makes the following argument: In a short paragraph, explain the argument that the author is making. Do you agree or disagree with his claim?

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

Read the excerpt from the US Supreme court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The statute of Louisiana, acts of 1890, c. 111, requiring railway companies carrying passengers in their coaches in that State, to provide equal, but separate, accommodations for the white and colored races, by providing two or more passenger coaches for each passenger train, or by dividing the passenger coaches by a partition so as to secure separate accommodations; and providing that no person shall be permitted to occupy seats in coaches other than the ones assigned to them, on account of the race they belong to; and requiring the officer of the passenger train to assign each passenger to the coach or compartment assigned for the race to which he or she belong; and imposing fines or imprisonment upon passengers insisting on going into a coach or compartment other than the one set aide for the race to which he or she belongs; and conferring upon officers of the train power to refuse to carry on the train passengers refusing to occupy the coach or compartment assigned to them, and exempting the railway company from liability for such refusal, are not in conflict with the provisions either of the Thirteenth Amendment or of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Which best explains why the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy v. Ferguson was unconstitutional? The Supreme Court’s ruling allowed states to deny equal protection to any person within its jurisdiction. Since the 14th Amendment did not make concessions for people born outside the US, the Supreme Court’s decision could not be applied. The Supreme Court’s decision gave individual states the freedom to make their own laws in relation to non-whites. Since segregation laws did not provide equal protections or liberties to non-whites, the ruling was not consistent with the 14th Amendment.

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

What are some examples of the goods that the townshend acts taxed?

[ad_1]

Answer:

3- The correct answer is B. During the Presidential election of 1848, southern leaders felt that the government should stay out of issues regarding slavery.

4- The correct answer is A. The senator from Kentucky who introduced the Missouri Compromise was Henry Clay.

5- The correct answer is D, as the first commander of the Union troops was Winfield Scott, not mentioned in the chart.

6- The correct answer is D, as Admiral Andrew Foote was the one that used gun boats to secure the Mississippi.

7- The correct answer is C, as the Free Soil Party was formed in 1848 because of a strong belief in pro-slavery issues.

Explanation:

3- The presidential elections of 1848 were very contested elections. President James Polk, who had practically fulfilled all his objectives in his mandate, and with a very delicate state of health that would end his life before four months after leaving the presidency, fulfilled his promise not to stand for re-election.

In this context, both the Whig Party and the Democrats fought to impose their views on the elections and take them to the White House. The Democrats, widely predominant in the south, were convinced that the federal government should not intervene in matters related to slavery, but that it should be left to the free decision of each of the states.

4- The Missouri Compromise was an agreement made in 1820 between the representatives of the slave and abolitionist states in the United States Congress in relation to the regulation of slavery in the Western territories, proposed by Senator Henry Clay of Kentucky.

5- Winfield Scott was the general of the Army of the United States until 1861, shortly after the beginning of the Civil War, when he left his post at 75 years of age.

6- Andrew Hull Foote was an American naval officer distinguished by his participation in the Civil War. When the war broke out he was appointed commander of the Western Gunboat Flotilla, the predecessor of the Mississippi River Squadron. In this role, he commanded his gunboats at the Battle of Fort Henry. For his accomplishments in commanding the Western Flotilla, Foote became one of the first naval officers to be promoted to the newly formed Rear Admiral rank.

7- The Free Soil Party was a short-lived political party in the United States, active during the presidential elections of 1848 and 1852. Its main purpose was to oppose the expansion of slavery in the western territories, with the argument that free men in free soil made up a system morally and economically superior to that of slavery.

I guess this also depends on what the “Advanced Reading Skills” lessons talks about, but don’t think of it as “really hard”! Work on one word, one phrase, one sentence, and you’ll start making progress. =) 

In general, when translating, the first thing you’ll have to do is to understand the paragraph, but you’re right, this isn’t that easy a paragraph to translate. You could use an English dictionary, or a bilingual dictionary (http://www.nciku.comis good for English-Chinese) to help you. While you’re doing this, try to pick out important words and translate them first, and see if you could understand what each sentence means. 

Sometimes, words may have multiple meanings or be used as metaphors – for example, “amputated” means “having been cut off”, but in your 2nd sentence, it means that the poet should not be condemned and criticised to the point where he is treated as having no value. 

Finally, after you’ve translated the text, don’t forget to read it to check if it makes sense in the language you’re using – and if it makes for smooth reading!

Explanation:

Both “Death by a Black Hole” and “Man Listening to Disc” discuss humanity’s place in relation to the larger universe. However, the authors reach very different conclusions. While Tyson concludes that humans are insignificant in relation to the universe, Billy Collins puts humanity at the center of the universe.

In these lines, Collins shows how the speaker uses the music to isolate himself from others. He tells us that the music is loud, yet it is only for him. No one else can hear it, and no one participates in this private activity. He feels like the center of the universe because there is no one around. This shows that the speaker uses music to isolate himself from others.

What structure acts as a gateway for sensory impulses before they reach the cerebral cortex?

[ad_1]

Answer:

The best answer to the question: Which statements describe the structure of each type of macromolecule, would be: A, B and D. C would be the only option here whose structure, as proposed in the statement, does not meet the chemical composition criteria of an amino acid, which is the building block of proteins.

Explanation:

Macromolecules are basically the building blocks of human life. Of these our bodies depend entirely to carry out their different functions, and without them, there would not be life. These macromolecules are known as such because they are built from much smaller, and more basic chemical units. Essentially, there are 4 major types of macromolecules: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). All of them have one thing in common, and that is the presence of carbon as their building block. The variable elements would be hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and in some cases, phosphorus. From the options in the question, and given the request of the statement, three of the proposed statements effectively describe the chemical structures of the building blocks for carbs, lipids and nucleic acids, but that is not so for the building blocks of proteins, amino acids. Amino acids are not just built from carbon and nitrogen only; they will also count with hydrogen in their structure.

It was the Separate but Equal doctrine.

According to this doctrine, racial segregation did not violate the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which guaranteed ‘ equal protection’ under the law to all people. This doctrine was confirmed in Plessy v. Ferguson Supreme Court decision of 1896, which allowed for state-sponsored segregation.

Jim Crow laws were state and local laws that enforced local segregation in the United States. Under Jim Crow, African Americans were relegated to the status of second class citizens. The ‘separate but equal‘ policy was extended to public facilities, means of transport, schools, restaurants and restrooms. The facilities were, however, interior and underfunded compared to the facilities of white Americans.

Here are your matches:

  1. Navigation Acts = required colonies to trade only with England  
  2. French and Indian War =  British obtained Canada  
  3. Quartering Act = required colonists to house troops
  4. Sugar and Molasses Act = tax reduced after boycotts  
  5. Boston Tea Party = British reacted with Intolerable Acts  
  6. Saratoga = turning point of the Revolution
  7. George Rogers Clark = captured western British forts
  8. John Locke = philosopher  
  9. Proclamation of 1763 = forbade settlement beyond Alleghenies
  10. Iroquois = British allies in the Revolution  

Permit me to say a bit more about John Locke, the philosopher — as important background to the American Revolution.

The American founding fathers read Locke (as well as other Enlightenment writers).  The American Revolution (1775-1783) was inspired by ideas such as those of Locke.  John Locke (1632-1704) argued for the idea of a “social contract.”  According to his view, a government’s power to govern comes from the consent of the people themselves — those who are to be governed.  This was a change from the previous ideas of “divine right monarchy” — that a king ruled because God appointed him to be the ruler.  Locke repudiated the views of divine right monarchy in his First Treatise on Civil Government.  In his Second Treatise on Civil Government, Locke argued for the rights of the people to create their own governments according to their own desires and for the sake of protecting their own life, liberty, and property.

Which of President Johnson’s actions led directly to his impeachment by Congress?

Answer:

He fired the Secretary of War in violation of the Tenure of Office Act.

Explanation:

Republican radical lawmakers twice tried the Supreme Court to intervene against President Andrew Johnson. Unable to succeed in these attempts, the same deputies found in the 1867 Tenure of Office Act, the prerogative to open a process of impeachment against Andrew Johnson in 1868. With only one year in force, that law provided that the president of the Republic could dismiss its secretaries of State without the Congress authorization.

On August 12, 1867, Jonhson had not observed the Tenure of Office Act and had removed the Secretary of War (named for Lincoln) Edwin Stanton. Stanton was allied with the radicals. His departure was the breach used for the impeachment process to begin.

How did the second continental congress influence the conflict between the colonists and britain?

The Second Continental Congress was the second meeting of the colonies’ delegates in Philadelphia on May 10, 1775. The delegates, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams, were elected in part by colonial assemblies and in part by the provincial congresses that had sprung up to replace those rebellious legislatures dissolved by royal governors. The Congress commissioned Washington to organize a continental army and assume responsibility for the siege of Boston. It formulated regulations for the conduct 
for trade; issued paper money; and sent emissaries abroad to negotiate with foreign powers for financial, diplomatic, and military assistance. Most of the delegates, including Washington , still hoped for reconciliation with Britain, but by the end of 1775 this possibility had faded. In August the British monarch had issued a proclamation ” for suppressing rebellion and sedition ” in the colonies and in September had hired 20,000 Hessians. Two days later Congress approved a formal Declaration of Independence. It caused war against Britain.

The location o the Ottoman Empire had an impact on the

The Ottoman Empire dominated trade routes between Europe/the Mediterranean and Asia. It had a virtual monopoly over these trade routes from the early 1400s through the early 1500s. However, by 1500 European ships had become ocean-worthy and sailors (beginning with da Gama) found the sea route to Asia around the southern cape of Africa. Though the land route to Asia through Ottoman territory was shorter and more direct, the ocean route around Africa could be faster and was not vulnerable to blockade by the Turks. The Ottoman Empire gradually lost some of its wealth due to the shifting trade, but it remained the singlest greatest power in Eastern Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean until the late 1600s. 

So, the most important impact of the Ottoman Empire on global trade was that its power in the 1400s and 1500s forced European nations to invest in ocean-going navigation and exploration in order to sail to Asia rather than go through Ottoman land routes.

Which two acts taxed the colonists to fund the British troops stationed in the colonies?

[ad_1]

Parliament, outraged by the Boston Tea Party and other blatant acts of destruction of British property, enacted the Coercive Acts, also known as the Intolerable Acts, in 1774. The Coercive Acts closed Boston to merchant shipping, established formal British military rule in Massachusetts, made British officials immune to criminal prosecution in America, and required colonists to quarter British troops. The colonists subsequently called the first Continental Congress to consider a united American resistance to the British. on July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence. Five years later, in October 1781, British General Charles Lord Cornwallis surrendered to American and French forces at Yorktown, Virginia, bringing to an end the last major battle of the Revolution. With the signing of the Treaty of Paris with Britain in 1783, the United States formally became a free and independent nation.

Why is it said that natural selection acts on phenotypes rather than on the genetic material of an organism?

[ad_1]

Similarities: Natural Selection and Artificial Selection both result in the alteration of the gene pool. It can also change phenotypes of different species’.

Differences: Artificial Selection is when a specific trait is not wanted, and so it is not bred.

For example, humans did not like how yellow peas looked. They liked the healthy looking green better. So, they killed the yellow peas, and bred the green peas with other green pea plants, and right now it is almost completely out of our gene pool.

Natural Selection is when something naturally occurs, such as a natural disaster, famine, plague, invasive species introduction.

For example, if 10 camels lived in a desert, but one of them didn’t have as good of a metabolism and stayed full longer, then that one would survive, while the others might not.

Acts of Terrorism Violence | Essay Example

[ad_1]

           Acts of Violence

Violent acts have been on the rise across the world. They range from acts of terrorism to government sponsored acts. There are different factors behind these events with some being similar while others vary depending on whether it is an act of terrorism or government sponsored initiative. Variance in the causal factors may also be attributed to situational factors or disposition towards certain forms of violent acts. These factors also revolve around religion and politics. Both forms are common and threaten the peace and stability of nations. To fully understand the nature of these forms of violence, one needs to look at their real causes, their similarities, and factors that promote them.

There are several similarities between terrorist acts and government sponsored violence in terms of the contributing factors. One of these is seeking dominance. A minority group may want to gain power and a have significant say on matters relating to the governance of a country or a religion to be made the state religion (Stout, 304). Such violent acts result from a feeling of marginalization, oppression or discrimination. For instance, some of the terrorist activities conducted by the members of the Islamic faith are usually meant to scare some of the nations that are mainly made up of Christians. An example of this is in the terrorist attacks carried out in Germany against innocent people to demand constitutional recognition of the hijab (a veil wrapped around an Islamic lady’s head to hide their identity) as part of the school uniform for Muslim lady students. On the other hand, the violence propagated against Islamists in Egypt by the secular government was seen as an attempt by the state to suppress the influence of the Islam religion in the country.

Acts of Terrorism Violence
There are also differences with regard to the contributing factors when it comes to terrorism and state sponsored violence. Terrorism is mainly a result of a motivation to undermine the control of the state. One can use this motivation to explain the United States’ independence war. Assassination of high profile and symbolic persons is usually intended to incite the state into counter-terrorism to polarize a country’s population. An example of this is the 1963 and 1994 assassination of the American and Rwandan presidents respectively (Ahram, 6-9). They are also meant to attract the attention of the international community to struggles that would otherwise remain unreported. On the other hand, state sponsored violence is mainly caused by fear of losing power. It is usually intended to create fear in a population that in most cases forms the majority of the country’s population. Violence instigated by the Egyptian government against the Islamists also provides an example of violence conducted for of fear of losing power.

Situational factors play a significant role in promoting violent acts. For example, the attack on Iraq by the U.S based on claims that were not validated, which resulted to retaliatory attacks by terrorists on U.S soil. Dispositional factors also play a role in motivating terrorist activities. A good example is the tendency by die hard Jihadists to prioritize violent courses of action in promoting their agenda (Schmid, Alex and Crelinsten 103-117).

It is clear that state sponsored violence and terrorism have both similarities and differences with respect to their contributing factors and that understanding their nature calls for looking at their real causes, their similarities, and factors that promote them. Religion and politics come out as the main roots of most of these forms of violence. However, it is difficult to address this problem. Therefore, there is a need for more research into it if it is to be solved conclusively.
