2. Which source would be the most credible when researching the topic of plagiarism? an article in a journal written by two professors a website about plagiarism that does not list the author’s credentials a personal blog about being caught plagiarizing a student report on plagiarism in college


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:35 AM

An article in a journal written by two professors is your best choice. The second option is a no go because how would you know if the website was using credible evidence or an author who knew what they were talking about? A personal blog is a no go as well because they would have no concrete evidence other than what they know, also a student report on plagiarism in college isn’t a solid choice either because then it’s second hand evidence and you don’t know whether they have credible sources. Hope this helps!

In Fisher’s article, the three pieces of evidence that he used to support his viewpoint on space travel to Mars were (fill this in): 1. 2. 3. Spring chose to use these three pieces of evidence in her article to support her view on space travel to Mars (fill this in): 1. 2. 3. PART 2.

Did the authors support their views in the same or different ways? Did both focus most on appeals to logic or to emotion?


1. Did the authors have similar or opposing views?

The author had opposing views, because one author said that traveling and studying Mars is important and beneficial to us humans. The other author though, says that Mars investigations are a waste of money and too dangerous.

2. Did the authors use the same points of comparison? Explain with examples.

Yes, the authors did use the same point of comparison. One would be about the radiation being either too dangerous or harmless to us humans. Another would be building architecture on mars such as domes and houses, being either too expensive or useful to study.

3. Did the authors support their views in the same or different ways?

It was different in all areas. One author used facts and studies to prove his point, while the other author used mostly onions and not much resilient on facts to prove a true point.

4. Did both focus most on appeals to logic or to emotion?

One author focused on logic, with explanations and studies on why colonizing Mars would be a good thing. The other author used more emotion and was less focused on logic, with strong, opinionative claims using fear and excitement in his statements.

Why does the article refer to third parties as ”Gadflies”, and why is this something positive?


The article refers to third parties as gadflies because third parties often bring attention to political, social, or national issues that neither major party wants to discuss. After third parties bring public awareness to these issues, the two main parties begin debating them. An example of this occurred in 1992 when Ross Perot ran on a concern that the national budget deficit was a troubling problem. Although Perot lost, his candidacy forced the Democrats and Republicans to discuss and deal with the annual federal budget deficit.

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.

Why is it that once witnesses state information as a fact or identify a person as the perpetrator, the witnesses are usually unwilling or unable to change their understanding of the situation, even after they are provided proof that their account is inaccurate? Based on what you learned in the article, explain why jurors should consider eyewitness testimonies carefully during a trial.


Hey there!

For your first question, consider the difference between emergency care and elective surgery. Elective surgery is planned out in advance and is considered a luxury to those who can pay for it only. In some situations, people can opt out of treating something with surgery, especially if it’s expensive, and may try other methods of treating what they have if other options exist. Also, as the price of a surgery procedure gets higher, less people will be able to pay for it, decreasing the demand. On the contrary, when it’s an emergency, people will often value the life of the urgent patient above all else, including money. Therefore, it can be assumed that urgent care will always be demanded regardless of its price fluctuation. 

For your second question, consider the general consensus of people who purchase health care (in general). These people likely think about the possibility of falling ill and needing the health care in the first place. These people also likely think of all that could happen on vacation, especially to foreign countries where immunities and illnesses could be very different, and would like to minimize the possibility of getting ill as much as possible. So, it would make sense that someone who buys more health care would spend less on vacationing and vice versa. 

Hope this helped you out! 🙂

Which is not an appropriate thesis for an essay comparing two texts about poverty in the United States? Garcia’s reliance on personal stories makes her argument less convincing than Engle’s. Engle combines testimony from social workers with economic statistics that date back to the 1920s to craft a more convincing argument than the one Garcia offers. Garcia and Engle are both experienced scholars who write about poverty and race in the United States. Although both Garcia and Engle agree that hunger in the United States has generally declined since the beginning of the twentieth century, Garcia’s use of personal stories makes for a more interesting and more readable article.


Answer:

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

1. The answer is “C”.

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.  

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

2. The answer is “A”.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Poland Hungary Bulgaria

In the aftermath of World War II, the influence of the Soviet Union extended through the countries that were invaded by fascists in the Eastern Front, such as Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.

Poland

In January 1947, elections were held, resulting in the communist Republic of Poland. Previously elections were intervened so the communist candidates could turn victorious, and the members of communist resistance continued to resist in the territories near to Ucrain but fierce soviets intervention turned to mass arrest where all kinds of executions, deportations, and imprisonment took place.

An article with the net weight of 10 pounds is packaged in a box that weighs a 1/2 pound if 20 of these boxes articles are put into one Freight container that weighs 15lb what is the gross weight


Answer:

                The point that lie on the line is:

                        B.  (1,1)

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given that a line passes through the point (0,-1) and has a slope of 2.

We know that the equation of a line passing through (a,b) and having slope m is given by:

           y-b=m(x-a)

Here we have:  (a,b)=(0,-1) and m=2

This means that the equation of line is:

y-(-1)=2(x-0)\\y+1=2x\\y=2x-1

Now we will check which option is true.

A)

                (2,1)

when x=2

we have:

y=2times 2-1\\\y=4-1\\\y=3neq 1

Hence, option: A is incorrect.

B)

                     (1,1)

when x=1

we have:

y=2times 1-1\\\y=2-1\\\y=1

                Hence, option: B is correct.

C)

                      (0,1)

when x=0

we have:

y=2times 0-1\\\y=0-1\\\y=-1neq 1

Hence, option: C is incorrect.

Answer:

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

Isabella Baumfree was an African American woman that was born in 1797. She changed her name to Sojourner Truth in 1843. Her tenacity on the civil rights for women made her a supporter of human rights followed by many African Americans. She was also famous for her speech delivered in 1851 in the Women’s Rights Convention, in Akron, Ohio.

The idea that supports the claim that “Smaller offices are more honest than big ones” is the one mirroring offices to street crime.

Quote: ‘There is far less street crime per capita in rural areas than in cities, in large part because a rural criminal is more likely to be known (and therefore caught). Also, a smaller community tends to exert greater social incentives against crime, the main one being shame.’

This means that in smaller places people tend to know everyone who happens to be around, as well as the people to whom this person may be related. This situation makes it easier for people to identify a possible criminal and therefore caught them, using shame as a weapon to punish them. Keeping up with the analogy, a person found guilty of a crime may be kicked out of a small town the same way they would be fired from a small office, which leads to the conclussion that smaller (places) offices remain more honest than big ones, since all criminals are dismissed.
