Read the excerpt from “A Simple Way to Create Suspense”. For instance, heading toward a movie review program, I remember we asked: Who was the studio’s first choice for the Harry Callahan role in “Dirty Harry”? We knew most viewers would be intrigued. (What, Clint Eastwood wasn’t the first choice?) But—and this was the lesson—the success of the tactic didn’t depend on intrigue. Even viewers with no interest at all stuck around to find out. Humans are hard-wired. They need to know. Even viewers who knew the answer for sure stuck around, in order to be gratified. The gap was bridged, and the danger averted. (It was Frank Sinatra. You waited, right?) Which best describes this excerpt? The central idea of this excerpt is that Clint Eastwood was not the original choice for the Dirty Harry movie. The central idea of this excerpt is that intrigue is the most important way to create suspense. The author uses an analogy to compare his readers to the characters of a Hollywood movie. The author uses a personal anecdote to show that audiences are willing to wait for an answer.

When you are driving on an expressway you must remember that the greatest danger on expressways is?

[ad_1]

The correct answer is alternative D: “To evaluate the perspective of a witness to the event.”

A Primary Source of information in this case would be documents, journals, articles, recording, manuscripts or other similar things that were created at the time of the events being analyzed, whereas a Secondary Source is about the same subject, but not from a source of the time of the events.

For this reason, researchers would use a primary source instead of secondary source in order to evaluate the perspective of a witness to the event, or at least of someone who lived at the time the events occurred.

At 20 miles per hour the average driver, from the moment he sees danger until he hits the brake, will travel about: 55 feet 88 feet 44 feet 10 feet

The equation for how temperature changes the resistance R is: 

R=R₀(1+α(T-T₀)), where R₀ is the resistance at T₀=20°C, T is the temperature for which we want to calculate the resistance and α is the temperature coefficient for resistance. 

The resistance of the copper wire increases by 18% or by 0.18, so the new value for the resistance is R=1.18*R₀.

T₀=20°C
=0.0068
R=1.18*R₀

Now we need to input that into the equation for resistance change and solve for temperature T.  

1.18R₀=R₀(1+α(T-20)), R₀ cancels out,

1.18=1+α(T-20),

1.18-1=α(T-20), we divide by α,

0.18/α=T-20, we put 20 on the left side,

26.47+20=T

T=46.47°C

So the temperature on which the resistance of copper wire will increase by 18% is T=46.47°C.

Read the excerpt from “The Most Dangerous Game.” He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out, but the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him in the face and the salt water in his open mouth made him gag and strangle. Desperately he struck out with strong strokes after the receding lights of the yacht, but he stopped before he had swum fifty feet. A certain cool-headedness had come to him; it was not the first time he had been in a tight place. There was a chance that his cries could be heard by someone aboard the yacht, but that chance was slender, and grew more slender as the yacht raced on. He wrestled himself out of his clothes, and shouted with all his power. The lights of the yacht became faint and ever-vanishing fireflies; then they were blotted out entirely by the night. Rainsford remembered the shots. They had come from the right, and doggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength. For a seemingly endless time he fought the sea. He began to count his strokes; he could do possibly a hundred more and then— What details from the narration show that Rainsford is a rational individual who does well in moments of danger? Check all that apply. 1) He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out 2) Desperately he struck out with strong strokes after the receding lights of the yacht 3) A certain cool-headedness had come to him; 4) There was a chance that his cries could be heard by someone aboard the yacht 5)[D]oggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength.

[ad_1]

C) A certain cool-headedness had come to him

E) [D]oggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength

Both of these sentences show that Rainsford can easily handle stress. The first sentence says that he was overcome by “cool-headedness”. In the second stanza the speaker uses words like “doggedly, slow, deliberate and conserving his strength.” In all of these instances Rainsford was in danger,; however, he was able to keep calm and think clearly about what he should do next.

1 D. You can donate at any age.

In united states, there is no laws/regulation that prohibit you form donating to charitable organizations. These action would be considered as an act of elevating social problems that are faced by other people in society. The only legal risks can only occurs if you somehow use the charity as a method to disguise your tax payment.

2 false

You can make a donation to non-profits anytime you want. But, to ensure that your donation does not go to waste, you need to conduct a little research on the non-profit organization. Make sure that they had proof of their work and not just around to steal your hard earned money.

3. C.Fortune 500 company.

The only difference between the two is where the sense of achievement come from. Working for fortune 500 company would definitely give more advantage in financial gain. But, working for non-profit would help you if you seek satisfaction in improving the wellness of others.

4 false

Each non-profit usually receive all forms of donation as long as the donation is relevant to their causes. For example, if the non-profit is established to help poor kids in Africa in their survival, materials such as foods, clothes, toys, books, or medicines would be accepted.

5. true

Non-profit organizations still pay tax on their income. But the rate usually would be significantly lower compared to other form of organizations. This happen because the government exempted non-profit organization from having to pay sales tax and property taxes from their operation.

6. D. $300 billion.

From united states alone, it is estimated that more than 390 billion dollar is given to charities each year.This number come from the combination of the contribution from Corporate’s Social responsibilities and the donations given by non-profit and individuals donators.

7. B. Not-for-profit” means the money that an organization earns goes to the organization to help it achieve its purpose rather than going to stockholders.

Not for profit organization usually established under a specific cause (such as hunger, environmental problems, etc). In for profit organization, the money form the operation would all be given to the shareholders. In non-profit organizations, the money from the operation would be allocated to fix the problems related to their cause.

8. C.20 – 50

People who donate the most to charities tend to be the people who are still in productive age. these people had higher amount of average income compared to other age groups. Because of this, they are the most likely to have more money on their reserve after fulfilling all of their consumptions.

9. A. .Improve your health, improve your self-confidence and help you become more satisfied with your life.

Studies shown that donating to charities contribute the reduction of stress which might lead to improvements to your health. The sense of self-satisfaction that come from charities would improve your self-confidence due to the perception that you’ve done good for others.

10. A.You may be able to write off your donation on your taxes.

Since they are considered as an act that had positive benefits to society, most governments in the world would consider charities that you’ve given as a tax write-off. This would be an upside for those who are genuinely willing to help. But on the down-side,  many people or corporations use this situation to manipulate their tax payments

In “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” the speaker is a human, who experiences the startling beauty of nature through the unexpected discovery of an entire sea of daffodils by the water. This poem is pensive and calm, using light, frivolous vocabulary: the daffodils are “fluttering and dancing in the breeze,” and “tossing their heads in sprightly dance.” The waves in the bay, as well, dance and sparkle, and yet the daffodils are more captivating even than the ocean, multitudinous as they are, as the stars in the sky. In Wordsworth’s poem nature is powerful and inviting, exhibiting forces of healing in the form of bright colors and gentle vibes. It is recounted from a comfortable, safe perspective; when the speaker is resting on his safe, warm couch, the memories of his solo walk along the bay …flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils. These recollections serve as a comfort and pleasure to him, even when he is comfortable in a pleasant environment. Such was the power of the scene. De la Mare’s poem also presents nature as a powerful force, but an impersonal, destructive one. The poem is told from the perspective of sea birds in a storm, and the vocabulary is a violent as Wordsworth’s is serene: “And the wind rose, and the sea rose,/To the angry billows’ roar,” and in the second verse, And the yeasty surf curdled over the sands, The gaunt grey rocks between; And the tempest raved, and the lightning’s fire Struck blue on the spindrift hoar – Here the birds have lost control, and the storm is forcing them onto the shore, waves tossing and wind howling, a wholly different scene than Wordsworth’s happy spring day. Even in the end, when the storm breaks and the sun comes out, we see the lingering effects of the chaos – “the bright green headlands shone/As they’d never shone before,” and yet within this setting we have vast hoards of sea birds breaking this lovely post-storm calm with their “screeching, scolding, [and] scrabbling.” But in the final two lines of the poem, we see also “A snowy, silent, sun-washed drift/Of sea-birds on the shore.” And herein lies the true destruction: while a whole host of birds are tumbling through the sky, another host of birds has been killed by the violence of the storm. Both poems depict the unpredictability of nature, and yet because Wordsworth’s poem is from the point of view of a man, on a bright spring day, his poem is more domestic and simple than that of de la Mare. The latter presents the point of view of nature itself, only to switch to a third person, withdrawn perspective at the end of the poem; humans have no role in the events that unfold. Any humans that exist in the area would have been safely indoors during the storm, away from any danger. We therefore get the rawness of nature where we would normally escape it for our fires and our beds; here is the flip-side of natural beauty – natural destruction. This poem is no walk in the garden, but a story of the wildness of natural processes. I NEED HELP WRITING THIS IN MY OWN WORDS PLEASE HELP
