Read the two passages. Passage One Our school’s mission statement stresses community, cooperation, and personal and intellectual growth. But one of our school’s practices—selecting a valedictorian, or the student with the highest rank in the graduating class—does not support our mission. This practice is divisive, unfair, and archaic. So let’s end it now! Passage Two It is only with great care that administrators consider implementing any system-wide changes to their mission statements. Administrators carefully craft these statements to reflect their school’s fundamental and philosophical approach to education. They take great care in making sure that this mission statement is educationally sound. Based on these two passages, which statement is true? Neither author is open or receptive to opinions contrary to his or her own. Based on an examination of word choice, it is evident that the author of the first passage is someone in administration, while the author of the second is not. Based on an examination of structure, it is clear that both authors reveal their viewpoints most clearly in the last sentence. Both authors are in support of the mission statement.

Which phrase makes it clear that Roosevelt is aiming his argument at journalist


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:28 AM

THE administration of Theodore Roosevelt was in some respects the first modern presidency. It is with Roosevelt that the most distinctive twentieth-century characteristics of the executive office emerged as more or less permanent traits. Roosevelt put the presidency and the federal government at the center of peacetime political action. He made the White House a national focus for the social mood and did much to set the moral tone of his times. He exploited the president’s powers as commander in chief to initiate a forceful, independent foreign policy, deploying military forces abroad without direct (or any) consultation with Congress. And he extended presidential initiatives in policymaking to the domestic scene on an unprecedented scale, putting forward reform proposals for congressional action and using executive orders to promote major innovative programs.

They don’t connect. I don’t remember what the logical fallacy is called but the teacher is clearly avoiding to answer the question so instead she brings up something that has no relevance to the topic.

Which line best illustrates imagism? A. The pink sky sank into wet night. B. His mind remained clear but bereft of images. C. Yesterday lasted forever; tomorrow will never come. D. Those heroes of noble blood can sleep, but never can they rest.


The correct answer is
A. The pink sky sank into wet night

Imagism is about depicting vivid images usually by describing using vivid colors or things that are felt by senses. Presenting someone’s mind or concepts like yesterday and tomorrow is not imagism because it’s too abstract to imagine vividly. Same with the final sentence where it’s not very vivid.

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 🙂

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.

Economic profit is calculated as:

Economic profit = Total Revenues – Total Cost

Total cost both includes explicit and implicit cost. In
this case, the explicit cost is $8,000 while the implicit cost is $64,000.
Explicit cost is a direct payment made to run the business while implicit cost
is the opportunity as accountant that is lost. Therefore,

Economic profit = $150,000 – ($8,000 + $64,000)

Economic profit = $78,000

Tiana can clear a football field of debris in 3 hours. Jacob can clear the same field in 2 hours. If they decide to clear the field together, how long will it take them?


Answer:

Option C – BD=76 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : You are designing a diamond-shaped kite. you know that AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm, and AC = 84.8 cm.

To find : How long BD should it be?

Solution :

First we draw a rough diagram.

The given sides were AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm and AC = 84.8 cm.

According to properties of kite

Two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides are congruent.

So, AD=AB=44.8 cm

DC=BC=72 cm

The diagonals are perpendicular.

So, AC ⊥ BD

Let O be the point where diagonal intersect let let the partition be x and y.

AC= AO+OC

AC=  x+y=84.8 …….[1]

Perpendicular bisect the diagonal BD into equal parts let it be z.

BD=BO+OD

BD=z+z

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔAOD

where H=AD=44.8 ,P= AO=x , B=OD=z

H^2=P^2+B^2

(44.8)^2=x^2+z^2  ………[2]

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔCOD

where H=DC=72 ,P= OC=y , B=OD=z

H^2=P^2+B^2

(72)^2=y^2+z^2 …………[3]

Subtract [2] and [3]

(72)^2-(44.8)^2=y^2+z^2-x^2-z^2

5184-2007.04=(x+y)(x-y)

3176.96=(84.8)(x-y)

37.464=x-y ……….[4]

Add equation [1] and [4], to get values of x and y

x+y+x-y=84.8+37.464

2x=122.264

x=61.132

Substitute x in [1]

x+y=84.8

61.132+y=84.8

y=23.668

Substitute value of x in equation [2], to get z

(44.8)^2=x^2+z^2

(44.8)^2=(23.668)^2+z^2

2007.04-560.174224=z^2

z=sqrt{1446.865776}

z=38.06

We know, BD=z+z

BD= 38.06+38.06

BD= 76.12

Nearest to whole number BD=76 cm

Therefore, Option c – BD=76 cm is correct.

Evaluate the argument in this political cartoon. Is the message clear? Why or why not?


I believe this speech is very persuasive. In this speech, McCullough explains his views on the new ways of approaching education. I believe he does a good job of explaining why the pursuit to be the best has become meaningless and empty.

In the passage, the author argues that people are obsessed with being the “best.” This is because they believe that they are special, and that they really can achieve things that are more incredible than those of the general population. However, the author argues successfully, not everyone can be special because that would lead you to the conclusion that no one is. Similarly, if every school is one of the best, then the category loses meaning. This is a very logical and persuasive argument.

Moreover, he argues that this belief leads people to have experiences that would normally be good and meaningful. However, they engage in them in a superficial way. They do so simply to have a better track record of accomplishments. This leads to experiences becoming cheap and meaningless, and to life being seen as a series of races and awards.

Answer:

The initial height is 5 feet.

The object will hit the ground after approximately 4.57 seconds.

Step-by-step explanation:

An object is launched into the air. The projectile motion of the object can be modeled using the function h(t) = -16t^2 + 72t + 5, where t is the time in seconds since the launch and h(t) represents the height in feet of the object after t seconds

General equation is

h(t)= -16t^2 + v_0t+h_0

V_0 is the initial velocity

h_0 is the initial height

From the given equation , the initial height is 5 feet

Initial velocity is +72 feet / sec

When the onbject hits the ground, the height becomes 0

So we plug in 0 for h(t) and solve for t

0 = -16t^2 + 72t + 5

USe quadratic formula to solve for t

t= frac{-b+-sqrt{b^2-4ac} }{2a}

a=-16, b= 72, c= 5

t= frac{-72+-sqrt{72^2-4(-16)(5)} }{2(-16)}

t= -0.06  and t= 4.568

The object will hit the ground after approximately 4.57 seconds.

To find out the height after 3 seconds, plug in 3 for t

h(t) = -16(3)^2 + 72(3) + 5=77

At t=0 , h(0) = 5

Answer:

A. People who say children should not have a say in who serves in our government do not truly respect children.

This is the best rebuttal to the counterclaim. Hoda’s previous point is that thirteen-year-olds should be able to vote. Her subsequent point is that children in the past were allowed to do so because they were considered adults. Therefore, this phrase would fit in between because it states that adults who refuse do not actually respect children.

Charles II (May 29, 1630 – February 6, 1685) was the King of England, King of Scots, and King of Ireland from January 30, 1649 (de jure) or May 29, 1660 (de facto) until his death. His father Charles I had been executed in 1649, following the English Civil War; the monarchy was then abolished and England, and subsequently Scotland and Ireland, became a united republic under Oliver Cromwell, the Lord Protector (see Commonwealth of England and The Protectorate), albeit with Scotland and Ireland under military occupation and de facto martial law. In 1660, shortly after Cromwell’s death, the monarchy was restored under Charles II. He was popularly known as the “Merry Monarch” in reference to the liveliness and hedonism of his court.

The exact date that Charles became king is vague due to the uncertain political situation of the time. His father was executed on January 30, 1649, making him in theory King Charles II from that moment. He was immediately proclaimed king in Scotland on February 5 and Jersey on February 16, 1649, but was also recognized in a few British colonies (especially the Colony and Dominion of Virginia). In Scotland Charles was for some time king in title only. It took two years of negotiation with the Presbyterians before he was finally crowned King of Scots in Scone on January 1, 1651. However, his reign there was short lived as he was soon driven out by the republican armies, led by Oliver Cromwell. His coronation in England would not be until after Cromwell’s death and the monarchy’s restoration in May 1660; Charles spent most of the intervening time exiled in France.
